We’ve taken our teen age sons to many steakhouses, but my 16 year-old was impressed as if it was his very first time! He’s my picky eater! Well done! Kudos to John, who said he wanted to make it a great experience and lived up to it.

Bday dinner 🥂
Busy place
Delicious , delicious food , can’t wait to go back.

Lobster fingers ( a must )
Steaks are juicy & served on a hot plates
Dessert was amazing & free because of my bday
Wine pours were Large! 🍷


Service from Chris was amazing
Host sat us at a private table with views of the kitchen ( was cool to watch )
Ambience was beautiful , loved the photos & bathrooms

My only complaint was they put an 18% gratuity on our bar bill & our tab @ the table and they make EVERYONE spend a minimum of $100 ( we were @ $298 & our server put $2 more dollars on the tab , I thought it was a bit ridiculous )
Especially since we had just spent a few hundred at the bar before dinner )
I think it tacky ~ So BEWARE !

Didn’t mind the 20% gratuity added to our 2 person large bill what I VERY MUCH minded is the server not mentioning and folding the bill to only show total due and the tip line trying to hide the fact already had gratuity and trick me into tipping twice. Bad business !

We had a 6pm reservation and still had to 20mins to be seated. Server wasn’t aware of policy changes regarding kids under 10, manager was attitude was horrible and didn’t take ownership of staff not being informed before shift.

Awesome dinner celebrating birthday/ retirement. Sat in a glassed in area facing the kitchen and was able to enjoy the meal preps. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable ad seemed intent on making our evening memorable. Food was delicious and presentation of food was well timed. Pricey but well worth it. Will definitely return our next time in Chicago.

Steak 48 is exactly what you want from a high end steakhouse. Really great dishes with excellent service and seems to be consistent each time.

The food and service is the very definition of outstanding. $100 per person minimum, but it was totally worth it.

If you are looking for a place that overvalues noise as ambiance, substitutes impatience for knowledge and pretends that a $100/per person minimum including any children means top notch food, then by all means, book here. This entire dining experience down to the crab legs and Wagu could be recreated by Costco for about the same price and 4x the number of people.
Also, they need to check the temp of the freezer because the Gelato had been refrozen.

Service was meh. Food was great but not worth 400. Chairs are torn up not worth the dollar value.

The food is great! The restaurant is beautiful. This was no the first time here but was quite disappointed that we were told we had to spend $100 per person (first of all that should be no problem at a steakhouse and a given but who tells someone that!) and then they put a 18% tip on a table of two!! I understand bigger tables but a table of two is ridiculous!
