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.

Although I love the concept of being able to swipe your card right at the table and being done with it- I was very disappointed in my experience. The waitress took my card and then started the process of checking out our bill. With the electronic credit card swipe machine in her hand she put it in front of me and asked if 20% was okay and to press the button to confirm. I was very very very turned off by that. That should not be happening. I did not have time to review my bill, look at the itemization, and the PRIVACY to consider my tip choice. If STK wants to utilize this new way of checking out customers, that’s fine but awkwardly forcing everyone to tip 20% is not right. I wouldn’t go back for that reason alone. That made the night super weird and uncomfortable.

Booked for a birthday dinner for 1930 on a Saturday. We knew it would be busy but there was one waiter serving the while area of the champagne lounge where we were seated.

I can not fault his service as he was great, but it took 45 minutes to even have our order taken and then a further 30-40 minutes for our food to arrive. This is absolutely not acceptable on a Saturday night, you know you will be busy so you need to ensure you have enough staff on duty.

Unfortunately ruined evening as it was a $200+ dinner for two which was supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable but instead was spent starving and just wanting the food to arrive so we could leave.

Such a shame because the service (when we got it) was great and the food delicious but very overpriced.

Also when booked you ask if it's for an occasion, it was my birthday yet there wasn't even the mention of this during our meal, nothing offered. I wasn't expecting anything but what's the point in asking??

Luckily booked a table at TAO for the following day which made up hugely for such a disappointing evening.

The food was good but the service was below par for the location and the level of standard they are advertising. 3.5 hour for a dining experience with the majority of time waiting was unacceptable. We had reservations and got there early and was still told there was a wait although there were many tables visible. While we were waiting for a table, there were also many people approaching the host stand complaining about waiting for more than a hour with reservations. The area we were seated at was horrible as well. They crammed all these tables to a small area and the waiters couldn’t even get by without bothering another table. For a steakhouse advertising as an update restaurant, it does not deliver.

Very loud... had a hard time hearing our server. Steak was mediocre, hard to cut. Oysters were good. The food took a long time to get out however they did give us a complimentary side for the long wait. Probably wouldn’t dine here again.

I am not sure how long this STK was open, but we saw it near our hotel and really wanted the experience since we had an amazing experience at STK in NYC. I do not know if our server was over his head with all tables seated at once, or if they were severely understaffed, but to take an ENTIRE hour for the bottle of wine (only to receive the wrong one, once it finally arrived), but dinner came a full 2 hours after being seated. We came early from MI to tour a college and had been running all day. We were ready to get to bed long before dinner arrived and actually contemplated leaving before dinner came. What is going on with this? The ambience is amazing there! There is such significant potential. I'm not sure if we'll ever go back.

I have been to STK Chicago and Vegas before and had amazing experiences. Unfortunately this wasn’t one of them- service was very slow and we waited for 1.5 hours just to get appetizers/starters. We had a show planned for after dinner and had to rush eating our main entree and didn’t have time to order dessert. We had to request drink orders and we were not asked if we wanted more alcohol which was surprising, especially since we waited such a long time for our food. We had a large bill and left feeling still a little hungry and dissatisfied.

We celebrated my bday at STK. The steaks are out of this world one of the best steaks I have had and better than many of the high end steak restaurants in Chicago. Our waiter was very attentive. Definitely give STK a try- you will not be disappointed.

First time being to STK. We had Johnny taking care of excellent service! Everything he recommended was really good. Food came out pretty quick. Music was loud, but not loud enough were you weren’t able to have a conversation, I liked it. Would recommend this place to a friend!

STK was just OK ! The food arrive at our table cold the steak was cooked just a little over medium rare and we asked for medium well. But in their defense they removed all of the side dishes and the steak and cooked everything over for us and it came back out sizzling hot and the steak was cooked properly. The Waiter was very apologetic and went beyond to make sure everything was corrected. The manager did come over to apologize and that was all no complementary drinks or anything which I felt Something should’ve been offered because now we have to wait on our food and we had already been there for sometime . You could’ve done something but no big deal like I said it was just OK.

Swanky, yes..very cool ambiance but the music is way too loud for a restaurant. The steak was good, not the best, not the worst. Grilled calamari and ahi tuna, the chef should stick to steaks, both dishes WAY OVER COOKED. The calamari was rubber and the ahi cooked along the edges. Service was fair.

So impressed with the chai olive oil served with the homemade bread. I wish they sell it! Blue cheese butter also something I like!

Grilled octopus has the most octopus taste. If you are big octopus fan, STK is the place!

Didn’t pay enough attention they do charge $10 for the truffle butter with steak. I should have wrapped up my leftover truffle butter. I only used 1/4 with my steak.

Great food and service. Nice presentation and plenty of options to add to your meal- like Truffle butter. The process of paying was uncomfortable. The server gave me a terminal/tablet showing me the items. Then she asked if 20% tip was ok- which was uncomfortable. Then they could not give me a receipt that just showed the total with tip. They only had a completely itemized bill showing every item. Normally I do not like to show this type of detail on my expense report. I definitely would go back though.

We went for a bday celebration and the ambiance was great but the service was not what I would expect for a place like this. Drinks took forever to come out and same with the food. And my friends food was not even warm.

Not sure I would go back if this is what the service is always like. The waiter was nice and talkative but to get our food and drinks took way too long.

Our waiter was top notch & the filet and all sides were delicious.
There is a disc jockey playing very loud music, and even the twenty-year olds in our party of four agreed, way too oud to eat dinner and have conversation at 7pm. The overall ambiance is confusing, since it appears to be an up scale steak restaurant on first impression, but then the disc jockey and loud music don’t really fit.

This was my third visit to STK and probably the worst dining experience of the three.
Things started going down hill the moment I opened the menu. There were several long strands of hair inside of the menu. The waiter apologized and retrieved a different menu.
Upon ordering, we selected appetizers and elected to peruse the menu to select entrees. The waiter informed us that everything had to be ordered at once and further stated the restaurant was a “full order” restaurant. We felt rushed and not fully allowed to peruse the menu entirely. They offered a baked potato with an up charge for caviar. If you elect not to have caviar, the up charge applies automatically (crazy). Therefore we altered our selections for the sake of trying to enjoy dinner since we already arrived, valet parked and were seated. Overall, not pleased and will not race back to STK Chicago anytime soon.

Everything was great until the server sat at our table to count our money which I thought was rude. The server sitting at our table counting our cash was unacceptable. I’ve been here several times and this has never happened. I understand we had a large party however that could have been taken care of at the cash wrap. Not sure if I will visit again in the future, I make it my business to visit STK in different cities and this was very unfortunate. She even told us she does this at every table to make sure the cash is correct. I’ve never seen this done in my life, not even at a diner. It made us all feel uncomfortable and that was disgusting. If that is company policy you guys should look into that. Don’t know if I will visit again.
