Steakhouse

Once known as the “skyscraper” of its day, the historic Germania Hall building, built in 1878, in downtown Wooster is now home to The City Square Steakhouse.

Award-winning chef Mike Mariola and wife, Emily, opened The City Square Steakhouse in 2008. City Square promises a dining experience you’d expect from a big city while maintaining its historic small-town charm, and has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Steakhouses in America.

The City Square Steakhouse is proud to exclusively use Certified Angus Beef products for all steaks and burgers. In addition to steaks, seafood, and other entrees, the inimitable flavor and delicacy of Butter Cake – City Square’s signature dessert – is truly the “cherry on top” of the City Square experience.

    We have ate at City Square many times and it is always WONDERFUL. This visit was the worst we have ever had there. The food as always was very good. Our server was the problem. 20 minutes after arriving we wished we had gone somewhere else. Our son ordered sweet tea to drink and we had to keep asking for it. We had to also ask for bread and for refills on are bar drinks. I am thankful for the other waiter who got all are stuff for us that we didn’t have . Ian ( our waiter) really ruined our Father’s Day dinner. Thanks Ian!!! I believe Ian was not ready to be on his own serving yet, he needs to be retrained. Maybe the back of the house is best for him, not out with your paying customers were he can ruin other meals. With the amount of money we spent I expect perfect service. I hope something is done about this,waiters like that can ruin a business. I hope we continue to eat at your restaurant.

    The Father's Day Sunday Brunch was just the perfect setting for a delicious meal among family members and guest. Service was impeccable and swift! The food fare wasn't anything out of the ordinary but delicious none the less. Two in our party ordered the Ohio's Chicken and Waffles and commented the dish was very good taste wise and it complemented their hunger status. The pricing is fair and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. Our spot was not too noisy at all. I'm sure we will find another occasion to venture back to The City Square Steakhouse!

    Our waiter, Ian, was on top of his game. We couldn't ask for better service. Our food was good and the servings were decent. I had the NY strip steak and it was cooked perfect, my friend had the pork chop and it was fantastic. I would definitely eat there again.

    We liked the fact that we weren’t rushed. There was time between courses for conversation. Food was great - NY Strip was nicely cooked to the requested temperature and had very little gristle. Nice selection of Ohio wines.

    We enjoyed our evening very much. The steaks and sides were all very flavorful. We had an exceptional waiter who was very personable. One steak came to the table overcooked from the rare that was ordered to something more like medium. The waiter immediately took it back. The new steak was quickly returned to our table by the manager and our waiter. They wanted to make certain it met my expectations. It means a lot that a restaurant knows how to correct an issue with minimal impact to the customer in the unlikely event there is a problem.

    The reservation was honored and we were seated immediately. The staff seemed to work together as a team. Good entree and appetizer choices. The house dessert was a buttercake with one small dip of ice cream - most give too much ice cream and not enough of the feature. This was the opposite with a caramel drizzle. Perfect. Their seafood bisque is outstanding, though somewhat overpriced at $14 when the lobster was not that evident, and mostly shrimp and clams and scallops. Very good, but I have seen some cups of soup as big as their bowl. Bone-in ribeye is $65 so I got three appetizers, which were good. Pork belly is outstanding. Service is excellent, though they follow a common habit in restaurants of bringing a new glass of iced tea to your table without asking and before you are half done with the last one. This is very wasteful. Just ask first. Overall excellent experience.

    My first visit here: Phenomenal bone-in ribeye and filet, fast service, cold drinks. We were celebrating an 11-year cancer-free anniversary. We were even treated to a free dessert. The food was outstanding and the ambiance was superb. One nit-pick: when we began our experience after being seated, we asked our server if they had a “domestic beer” list, she stated, “I’m happy to say we don’t.” This gave me an initial impression of smugness, however the remainder of our experience was excellent. We will dine at the City Square Steakhouse again!

    The waiter was fantastic-attentive without being overly present. The food was good. Not incredible but good. They ran out of salmon and offered Mahi instead, which was disappointing but fine. The steaks were well prepared. The lobster tail was very good. Every else was just not overly impressive.
