Right off the Edens expressway, Stefani Prime is the ideal meeting place where the North Shore meets the city with guests enjoying a “city dining” experience without having to battle the downtown traffic and parking challenges.
The choices and cuts were huge. We were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary and shared the 40 oz. Tomahawk rib eye steak . It was delicious. Not enough room for dessert.
Ladies night was a definitely added bonus to the evening!
Food was great, but service was far from great. The busboys did a better job and were more attentive than our waiter. We had to wait a long time to order and waited a while for seconds on drinks. If our waiter came around more we would’ve had more drinks. Waiter didn’t check in with us to see how it was. I even had to ask the manager to get our waiter while he was walking past and it seemed like he didn’t care too much or was too concerned. The atmosphere consists of an older crowd and the waiter clearly focused and payed more attention to them. When my boyfriend and I walked in we had to wait awhile before we could even check it-again because staff was more concerned about the older customers and their experience than ours. It is clear they target the customers they think will spend the most, which is an awful business strategy. We chose to eat there-we can clearly afford it. Overall I would rather go somewhere in the city then come back here, and probably won’t go again.
Nice for a special occasion; food was delicious!!!!
Great service and friendly wait staff. The menu was varied and the food was fresh and delicious. Good signature drinks as well.
Our waiter's answers to our questions were right on. The Chilean Sea Bass was superb. My dining companion was disappointed in her steak. It was more rare than med-rare and was on the tought side. Our waiter's suggestion of the Tiramisu was the right one - it was excellent.
The food was very good but expensive. I wish it was more family friendly pricing. I'd love to go there all the time with my kids. There's not a lot of kid friendly affordable options. The cheeseburger was even 18 dollars. We will have to save this place for special occasions.
Birthday dinner went awesome. Great food and service and even got a birthday cheesecake from then. Would definitely visit again.
Sales dressing had to much anchovies, steak was pushed for a raw cook repeaditly not my preference when I was asked for desert before I got the menu I asked if they served a specific desert waitress told me to go another place if I wanted that
Valentines dinner with family was fantastic. Service is the best. They took care of my grandsons requests. The fettuccine is the best you have ever had. I need to mention the cocktails are also wonderful.
It takes us about 20 minutes to get there and there is never a wait.
Place is always busy so it is good to make a reservation.
The menu is so great it is hard to decide.
Excellent food, we will be back!
Food was fantastic, service outstanding. Great place for a special occasion
Great service, food and location. Celebrated our anniversary and we loved it!
Only problem was my wife checked in but Open table showed we didn't show up. After calling Stefani's they called Open Table to confirm. Open table finally credit us with our points.
Restaurants in the North Shore that have the service and food standards of the city are hard to come across. Stefani Prime is just that. Thanks for the experience!
Very professional staff, was very attentive. The food was delicious, the short rib ravioli was some what bland, all the other dishes were excellent. We will return.
Incredible lobster cocktail, delicious Dover sole and always spectacular chicken Vesuvio
We both had the chopped salad which was excellent. Service was great and we liked the ambiance
I live in Evanston and my associate lives in Near North so your location is a perfect place to meet. We will be back
Service needs to be drastically improved for the downtown prices they charge. Not big fan of this place after having visited it 3 times since it’s opening.
Top shelf restaurant. Everything was a 10
A very solid restaurant overall. Good looking place. Valet a little tight but very courtious. Stefani is a proven restaurantour. Food was well prepared. Menu good size with an appropirate veriaty of choices. Server was knowleable and friendly.
Great classic Italian and Steaks in a fun atmosphere
Food and service were excellent. Downtown quality just north of the city.
I went to a birthday dinner
Food was good
Service was excellent
Nice ambiance, good menu selection and great drinks.
Great food and cocktails. It was a fabulous evening. We'll be back soon!
Only complaint I have is that the valet was totally overwhelmed. Granted the weather was poor but I waited almost 15 to drop off my car.
Beautiful restaurant, delicious steaks perfectly and accurately cooked, and tasty (large) cocktails. The only critique I have is the back dining room behind the wine wall is lit like a classroom; bright and not cozy. The front room has a way better restaurant vibe. The parking is free valet only (they work on tips) and the lot seems small for the volume they do. They do a good job moving the cars around like Tetris pieces but I'd be nervous that cars could get a little banged up. They seem careful though. Sort of expensive but you get what you pay for. A great restaurant in a part of town that has none. Hopefully they will prosper and others will follow.
Top notch service, food, and drinks. Price point seemed fair, given the quality, but higher than typical spots in the area.
Food was delicious as always and our waitress Courtney was terrific.
Sam the manager if that is his position should run the place. He is always fantastic. Saying hello checking on everyone and everything
We love it at Stefani Prime! The staff is very welcoming, the place is beautiful and a rare upscale restaurant for the area, including the North Shore. Well worth the prices. Great steaks, seafood and Italian dishes. Nice bar area if you like to dine on high end food and also watch a game. We are always personally greeted by the managers there, very nice. (thanks Steve!) Bartenders are great. Also, when we bring the kids (teens), they love the food and actually want to go with us (that is how good it is). We will keep coming back. Thank you!
Somewhat price for a “neighborhood” restaurant, but laid back vibe is nice and food quality is usually very good
We had a wonderful experience - the wine selection, service and our dinner was delicious. It was a wonderful discovery and we will be back soon.
Everything was delicious including the wine !!
excellent surf + turf and salmon with a wonderful loaded baked potato w/artichoke and kale
Celebrated our son’s 25th birthday. The service and food was outstanding. We couldn’t have expected any more in terms of quality and customer service. It’s cost is compatible with the quality of the food and service but we felt was certainly worth what we received. We will be back to celebrate again.
we've dined here somewhat frequently since it opened. the food is consistently good, and the wine selections are nice. service also is usually very good.
we are sad that the restaurant has discontinued serving the delicious lavash bread; that was a unique item we really looked forward to. we miss it.
First time there
Already recommended to co workers
We were stuck in a back room with the tables too close together. My son ordered the seared ahi tuna and it was prepared with olives so he did not like it. The waiter had highly recommended it. He asked for soy sauce but they did not have any. I tried to buy a split of champagne but they only had one that was not even on the menu for $28.00. I have been there many times before and LOVED it. Perhaps it was an off night.
Worth a visit, good food great service............................... .. . .. .......
