Steakhouse
STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Chicago is located in the heart of River North and, as anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options, and even wagyu and Kobe for the decadent dinners. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.

The food and service was great but didn’t like the loud atmosphere. Felt like we were in a night club not a steakhouse.

food was really good. the noise level was average. however, they must have sound proofed the restaurant very well. I had no trouble having a conversation with my husband. I could not hear the conversation of the big group next to us.

We went for Restaurant week 2020. The food & service were both very good. The only down side was the up charges over the standard pricing for "RESTAURANT WEEK". We felt that if participating, then up charges are not part of the design or remove those items from the menu.

Slow Wednesday evening and with just a few tables filled they told us they have a rule they will only seat full parties. The hostess was not friendly and seems more concerned about their rules than taking care of guests who are paying!! We sat at the bar and ended up just eating there as our friends were further delayed and we didn't want to run into yet another rule on how long you have to assemble your party. The bartender was slow and unsupported. Staffing was weak and we did not feel very relaxed.

It’s expensive, but worth the splurge. We had the calamari (app), the Tuna and the strip steak. We added the tots, which were fantastic. The tuna entree was some of the best I’ve had, and my dinner partner loved the medium rare strip.

Our server was Elizabeth, and she was the Bomb. She was attentive, but never rushed us. Great evening.

Amazing birthday celebration. STK is a unique experience that mixes a trendy nightclub vibe with a sit-down dinner. The food is amazing - one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The space is beautifully designed and has a distinctive club vibe, complete with on-site DJ that was spinning great music that made us dance in our seats the whole night! Halfway through dinner the waitstaff lit sparklers and all the lights in the restaurant pulsated to the rhythm of the beats. Everyone was out of their seats dancing for a brief moment while free shots were served to everyone in the restaurant. An excellent choice for a lively evening out, complete with excellent food and fun staff.

Nobody told us it was closing early. We went to celebrate my Husbands birthday and chose STK for the vibe and there was nobody there. Waiter treated us as if we were Ruining his night by being there like he wanted to leave. We still tipped him 25% of our $300 bill because we are like that but it was not what we expected at all.

Enjoyed STK overall. Decor and ambience were very different than the brown drab of almost every other steakhouse.

DJ - could hardly tell it was a DJ, music selection was good and volume was fine , not loud at all. We were gone by 10pm so maybe the club feel kicks in later

So the food - drinks were great. sides (mashed and asparagus) were great. Bread was ok. Filet steaks - her petite well done was fine. My 10 oz medium was undercooked. Sent it back it was over cooked. Said they’d bring another one right out , but that took 30 minutes and we couldn’t stick around. They did take it off my bill so that’s cool

All in all ...decent but not great time. Same price ranges as the top steakhouses in town but not same level of quality. Ok as a change of pace and a more lively atmosphere but not for the food itself

Awesome food- it’s an upscale steakhouse after all. We didn’t have any steaks though, their seafood is superb! So fresh and that’s what we had... ceviche, Tuna tartare, and the most succulent grilled octopus— all were amazing. Cocktails were served very generously as well.

Absolutely awful. We sat at our table at 8PM and waiting 45 minutes for cocktails, asked for tap water but they gave us 9 bottles of Fiji opening them at the same time so we couldn’t send them back which totalled to $81. We were not served dinner until 10:15PM. We will never return to STK. There are so many wonderful steak houses nearby that are not only more afforable but also much more attentive with service. Do not waste your money.

We had dinner here for New Year’s Eve, and we regret selecting this steakhouse. There was four of us, and the table was very small to accommodate four people. The seafood platter was beyond pathetic. My husband & I shared it as we normally get these seafood platters at other restaurants. What a sad display of a seafood platter! A bunch of mounded ice with very small portions of seafood! Two oysters had a slimy consistency to them, and we didn’t eat them. We shared an appetizer on special ... crab salad ...terrible. And, the price of it was even worse. Our friends didn’t enjoy their meal either. Service was mediocre. Noise level was too high as music was blaring. Plenty of other wonderful steakhouses to go to in the city. This place just isn’t it.

The food was ok. Both my boyfriend and my orders were incorrect. Our server kept calling me baby girl. I only was able to order 2 cocktails over the course of 3 hours and the second one took 40 mins to get to my table. It was a Tito’s and soda. Drastically over priced.

The service was incredibly rushed. Our drinks took 15 minutes to get to our table. Our dinner came out about 10 minutes after the appetizer that they had to wait until we finished our appetizer as there wasn’t room on our table for the dinner we ordered. I have been to a few other STK locations and will not come back to this one ever again.

Waitress was pushy and always trying to up-sell, arrived early with half restaurant open and we were sat in a corner behind a pole with another couple maybe a foot away (absolutely no privacy). Attempted ambiance in the dollar store candle on the table and pumping club music was less than satisfactory. Both steaks came out undercooked but after waiting we decided screw it and honestly just wanted to leave. An embodiment of new money Vs old money (this being a case of the former, and less preferred). If you’re gonna spend the money, at least make it worthwhile and pick somewhere else

Over priced , not sure cause it was New Year’s Eve . However we had dinner at 5/15 so they new we would be around much past 7pm. They wanted to sit us next to another couple even though they had 5 open tables next to our table that were empty. Not sure the reasoning on that. I think they just try to push the dinner special on you as well to get you in and out. I wouldn’t recommend this place . Much better steak house forsure.
