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.

J’ai l’habitude d’aller au stk de Londres ou l’ambiance est dynamique et classe. La on est plutôt dans le moI malgré les efforts du DJ.
La nourriture est copieuse et correcte. Le personnel est sympathique et accueillant.
Aucun fait marquant, dîner tranquille.

Place is extremely expensive!! And they are the masters at upselling so be aware of that. Wasn't a big fan of our server, but the manager was great and friendly. We did have a new york strip and it was delicious. Now that I have been there, I can check it off my list and move on.
Also, from what I am told it is a total club scene with a DJ on the weekends. We specifically chose a Monday night so it would be quiet.

This is a great place to go before a fun night out on the town because they have a great DJ playing your favorite dance songs from the 80's and 90's and today. The food tastes great, but the service tonight was quite slow. We had to wait a while for our courses and drinks. Steaks are expensive. But everything was tasty!

I had the Braised Short Rib w/ Jalapeño Cheddar Grits and its was amazing! The sides (mashed potatoes, broccolini with roasted almonds) were amazing as well! The ambiance was great and the waiters were amazing as well!

I made reservations way in advance because we all know great restaurants are booked for Valentine’s Day. I put in the note section a request for a booth. This restaurant sent emails and called me for confirmation if I were keeping my reservations. When we arrived we were taken to a small 2 seater table and I let the hostess know I had requested a booth. We were then sat at a small partial booth. When I clearly saw they had other full booths available. With that being said our server was personable. The food was good and they high energy of the restaurant was fun. My steak was great and I never eat bread BUT we were served this blu cheese butter bread that was to die for. I wouldn’t go back on a holiday weekend but on an average night yes. Be prepared it was very expensive, we dropped over $325 for just 2 of us and was seated in this tiny half booth

This being our first time at STK, my date and I Mr. Wilkes was disappointed in the food experience; the Halibut was over cooked and the lobster in the mac Not once did he ask how is your experience/food.. which at that time I would have mentioned it.. all we received was a bill for $268 dollars. not a good 1st impression.

Me and a party of 3 others went to this restaurant for the first time and the food was ok but not great one of us sent our entire meal back, the waiter seemed a bit off (tall Caucasian man w/bald head) he was not helpful at all...when it was time for the bill we were told they don’t split bills but could take separate cards to accommodate us all. The waiter I believe his name was Nick insisted we give him a $63 tip on top of our already $400 bill, which was fine but as we were paying for our food he pointed to what 18% of gratuity is “normally added” but he says he didn’t add it purposely which we all know isn’t true. So when we didn’t give him a $63 or more tip instead he snatched the payment and payment book off the table saying “wow u couldn’t give me that much”. It was a horrible first experience and I won’t be back. His attitude changed his entire tip and our ambiance and we no longer wanted to stay dessert

It wasn't what i expected. Very loud with people running around everywhere and a dj blasting music. The waiter was good but the sides and drinks very overpriced especially for the portion of the sides. The style of the decor was beautiful but ill never go back.

Everything about it was horrible no parking no valet you have to walk around the block to park at another establishment to get parking made reservations gave us a half booth which is huge shareable couch booth where your basically sitting on top of the people next to you and a chair in front of you declined that seating for a standard table ordered a coke which was flat had to send back and opted for the the sparkling water which tasted like tap water for $300 the steaks were rubbery and chewy the only thing that deserved any recognition was the sides the corn pudding and mashed potatoes and the rose they offered for valentines day smelled fresh everything else was horrible never again.

The wife and I went to STK for Valentine's Day and would never return. Let me start off by saying the wait staff was great but besides the mashed potatoes that was the only great thing there. 1) The place was cramped and we were sitting elbow to elbow with another couple 2) The DJ (yea, they have a DJ blasting music) was playing ghetto trap music 3) I asked for an 8 yr rum with A SPLASH of pop and received 85% pop with a splash of rum 4) Wife and I ordered 2 NY strips (med-rare) and were served dry well done steaks 5) Broccolini was served under cooked and very cold (for $18) 6) The octopus appetizer was pretty good but definitely not worth the $28. All together we paid $300 (tip included) for a terrible meal and will never return. I've been to about every known steakhouse in this city and this place ranks dead last. Save yourself the bad experience+ money and go to RPM Steak, Chicago Cut, Gene and Georgetti, Prime and Provisions etc...

If you are looking for a romantic steakhouse this isn’t it, the dj and the music played gave birthday dinner/ pre-club vibes.

Ambiance was great. Food was good, but underwhelming for the price. I got a 10 oz filet, and was disappointed in the quality compared to other steakhouses in the area. Especially because they claim that to be their specialty.

Again, food was decent but overpriced for what you get. Wouldn’t most likely go back for food, but not a bad place to chill and have a few drinks.
