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.

Always great. Waiters and hostess and manager all go out of way to make sure all is great. Food is top notch . We look forward to going again
Very disappointing and we really expected more from an expensive restaurant like this. The tables did not have a table cloth. They were bare Formica table tops. When cutting our steaks, the plate move all over the table. The sides were not shareable, the au gratin potatoes had no taste and no cheese, the lettuce in the Caesar salad was limp and the lighting not romantic or inviting. We would no return. Juan was out server and he was really great and the only pleasant thing that evening.
Overpriced and underwhelming. The small portions, crowded tables and loud noise make this a very unpleasant experience. It's convenience to the expressway as a half way point for meeting friends from the suburbs is the only reason to go here.
Very good food and service was excellent. All the food came hot and server was great. Steaks and pork chops are excellent.
Overall good but the service by our particular waiter /bartender was way below expected
Have been going to Stefani since the first restaurant on Fullerton and Stefani Prime was wonderful. The food and wine and cocktail selection was great!
Good addition to the North/Northwestern Chicago and close in suburbs. The service was excellent (engaging, friendly and informative). Although not quite at the level of the city’s top steakhouses (less options on steaks and seafood and not as broad bar selections), Stefani’s Prime is great option. Especially, if you don’t want to fight the traffic.
Excellent service. Delicious food. Manager greeted each table and was visible throughout the night
Why go all the way downtown when you can have a great city experience, with amazing food and staff, in Lincolnwood? No reason. Love this place.
I’ve eaten at SP many times for dinner but this was my first lunch. I had the Seafood Cobb and it was delicious. My friends had a Steak and Italian salad and everything was great! Also there is No Valet at lunch time.
Lovely atmosphere, delicious food, great service. Stefani Prime is a wonderful addition to the northwest side of Chicago.
I’ve been dining at Stefani’s Prime about once or twice a month. I love it! I’ve been with my husband, my friends and usually, my dad. The food is delicious! The attention to detail (this week, they’re celebrating Chanukah and Christmas and the ladies’ room smells like pine), is very impressive. I try to come in when Kasia is working. She’s incredibly friendly and kind. The entire staff is very welcoming. It’s my go-to place. Thank you!
The food was outstanding but $55 for risotto is extremely overpriced.
wonderful place , dinner was amazing! A little pricy, but worth it for a special occasion
Loved Rushed 437 and this is a fantastic alternative to that since closed entity
Great dinner. Requested a round table which they gave us, 8 people enjoyed a delicious time with good food and service
food was wonderful, service great. I highly recommend Stefani Prime
Excellent place for special occasions. Great food with a variety of flavors available on the menu, not just meat. They serve bread and is fantastic with the herbed butter. Wait staff is attentive bringing refills without having to ask. Plenty of parking and entrance is ground level for easy access for all.
Our third visit to Stefani Prime so we have travelled around the menu a bit. Good, solid food at standard steakhouse prices. Lots of value in the wine list. We appreciate the complimentary valet parking, which draws us up from downtown and is a nice extra. The service has been terrific on each visit, and we really like the room. A definite keeper!
Dinner was very good and our waiter was very attentive.
Food was outstanding - Center cut filet and the Rack of Lamb
Tables were a little to close together for comfort
The service fair to average at best average at best given the prices charged
The ambiance was disappointing. We sat in the room facing north feeling cramped coupled with loud noise. On a bright note, the food was good and well received but overall experience does not warrant a return visit
We love this restaurant. We now have a favorite waiter, Matt. He is the best always. We started with a shrimp cocktail and delicious cocktails. I had the pasta with bolenese sauce that was outstanding and my husband had the whitefish with butter sauce that was delicious. We love the decor also. Thanks
Great happy hour
Great build out, excellent food, and very attentive service from our waiter and other staff.
First, the servers are excellent. No rush, friendly and they make sure you are satisfied with your meal. My friend and I both had the Capese Salad which is always excellent. We both had the Veal Scallapine Piccata with Fettuccine. The veal was very good but the pasta was a little too rich. They served a complimentary salad which was not needed. The server said people complained their entree didn't come with a salad. Most restaurants serve a salad ala carte. Don't get it. Last, but not least, their drinks, bread and lavash crackers are too die for, especially, the lavash. If you eat too many you won't leave room for your entree. Stefani Prime is a nice addition to Lincolnwood. Waiting for summer to eat on their patio.
Very nice server but seemed unsure about some of our requests
Awesome service from valet to valet. Server was amazing!!! Loved every minute!!!!
Wonderful new option for dining in the northern suburbs.
They did not honor our reservation. They did not apologize just said they were very busy because of an event. They could not kick other people out of the seats they were already sitting in we were told. . People never left their tables because a raffle event was going on they said. But funny enough they forgot it’s a neighborhood place and everyone knows everyone. So of course I find out the tables were reserved because my other friends tried to sit in one 10 minutes before and they were told they were saved for reservations. So just like they always act there are some Patrons that are more important then other patrons. We were so excited for the opening of this restaurant in our neighborhood and have been several times. The food is very good but the management is terrible. They never go around to check on your tables, can barely welcome you for coming in, and never thank you for coming. They can’t even remember regular diners. Just like my friend said., “They treat you as though we are lucky to be able to go to their restaurant”. It was a very disappointing evening. We planned a night out with a group of girlfriends and were looking forward to the evening for several weeks but were very disappointed in how we were treated. We even tried to participate in the raffle and had to keep asking for a form to fill out we were told to keep waiting as they passed tickets to other customers. Furthermore to customers who were not waiting as long. They really made you feel very unwelcome.
pricey for neighborhood restaurant but good lunchtime value
Most fantastic new find! Loved the skate fish and skirt steak and the sides and presentation! We loved it!
Steak was undercooked.... this ruins the entire dinner as I’m not able to eat at a comfortable pace and with my wife at the same time. This is unacceptable for a restaurant that they claim is top notch.
Food was tasty.
Night out with friends.
Good place to celebrate my wife’s b-day
The service and food were great. My new favorite Steak and Italian restaurant.
Food is excellent, service was horrible which is the case every time I have dined there.
Excellent, we sat in a corner and we could hear one another. Food always good. Service excellent!
Another great dinner at Stefani's. Super food and service. On a rainy night the valet was a welcome bonus.
Contemporary setting (a little "cold" - I prefer a more traditional warmer feel), excellent service and very good food. A bit pricey.
