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.

Food was great and service was completely terrible. We weren’t assigned a waiter, the bus boy brought over silverware.

Was a bit drafty sitting right by the entrance. Heated lamps made it bearable. Food took a while to come out, but it was delicious. Server was very accommodating. Will definitely visit again.

Had to wait even with having a reservation given the fact that all tables have a 90 minute limit how do you not mange or prepare the time accordingly? Server approached table not more than 4 times. Food was not what expected not sure if everything is different or there are issues due to COVID but was not satisfied at all with my experience over all.

Damion was the greatest! He was very attentive and was there very time we needed anything. I thought happy hour was only Monday through Friday. He informed us that it is now 7 days a week. We only planned a 1 day trip on Friday, but extended it to two days and booked another reservation for 4 pm at STK because how can you pass up $1 oysters???? Yeah!!!

I actually tipped the bus boy $5 because he cleared the table every time we finished with a dish.

I had an amazing time at STK for Happy Hour. It was my day off work and I traveled into the city for shopping and dinner. The menu was extensive considering its Happy Hour- most places offer a couple of items. I had oysters, calamari and a burger with potato wedge. Yummy!!@ And a refreshing Strawberry Cobbler Martini. My waiter was the BEST! And the seating was cozy and warm due to the heaters. I can't wait to visit again!!

This was our first time dining out in one of the tents due to COVID and it’s a no for me. Not enough room, the temperature was off, and every time someone walked by the whole table and warming lamp shook as if they would fall over. Our reservation was for 930, we arrived at 920, and we’re not seated until 1015. We got our food right before 11 pm which is closing time. The waiter was not very friendly and was not helpful when I asked for wine suggestions which was very weird. The food was great so we will stick to take out until the city is back to normal dining then we may try again.

I understand restaurants get backed up but my reservation was for 9:15pm. I got there at 9 and waited. Other people that got there after me got sat first. I didn't get seated until 9:55pm. As I'm sitting they tell me everyone needs to be out by 11pm and if I'm going to be ordering a lot of food I can order it for take out as well....?? Also my reservation said it was for a birthday. Nothing was brought to the table, once we asked about it they said they will bring it.. ten minutes later nothing. By then it was 11:20.. Not many servers were outside. Just got up and left.

What stood out the most about STK was the ambiance. Very lively and best suited for a younger crowd. I had the 10oz filet and the best part was adding the additional truffle butter. Overall a nice experience for a date night in the city.

Disappointing. The price is not comparable to the value - it is way too expensive. The service was poor and unprofessional. The presentation of the food was underwhelming. This is a tourist steak house. Don’t go here if you’re looking for an upscale steakhouse experience. There are plenty of other, better, steakhouses in Chicago.

My seat was on top on a fire hydrant. I asked the host how am I supposed to sit on top of a fire hydrant? No answer. I asked her if it was possible to move the seat so I can actually sit down, or pointed to another table that was also open for 2 people and was told that table was unavailable. Aren’t tables for 2 interchangeable? One server for the entire outside patio. After 20 minutes he showed up and offered tab water. We said no, would like bottled water. We were served tap water. All the food was overpriced, and you know that coming in, and it was all under seasoned. The steak that was ordered medium rare was presented well done. We were never asked if the steak or the food was prepared to our liking. So I didn’t feel bad to leave 5% tip. I tip the service and not the check. We both agreed NEVER AGAIN. next day we were at Siena tavern and were treated like royalty and food was 1000% more flavorful.

Stephen was great. He knew his steaks and wine, and gave us great pairing recommendations. After living in downtown Chicago for +15 years, it’s not often that I learn something new about steak, but he was very informative.

Food was incredible but the outdoor seating in the middle of winter was not ideal. Most restaurants have heaters with tents. They had a half sided tent with no heater. My husband and I almost froze to death eating our steaks. If small restaurants can figure it out then so should STK.

The filet and sea bass were cooked perfectly no issues there. But for $175 the asparagus was grilled with maybe salt and pepper added, and the tatter tots did not pair with anything.
