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.

    City Square Steak has become my favorite place to celebrate special occasions. The food and service were outstanding. Mollly, our server, was very attentive and seemed to anticipated our needs. The fresh bread was warm from the oven and delicious,. The management team has seemingly found a model of consistent perfection on all aspects fo dining out.

    It was our anniversary so enjoyed the little note they had at the table and the complimentary dessert. It’s little things that make a difference. I felt valued as a customer. Great food and service. It’s about a 50 min drive for us but will definitely return.

    Very disorganized. I ordered salmi salad with 2 dressings on the side. No glaze on the salmon. I received a salmon dinner with dressing on the side. Next I received salmons salad with dressing and glaze on it. Third attempt they got it right. Long wait between server visits. Not typical. Very disappointing

    Waitress was friendly and nice. Attentive to our needs. Food served undercooked and cool. My medium rare ribeye was served rare and was cool by the time it reached my table. The fillet served to my wife was not on par with previous fillets we have had at City square. Disappointing overall compared to previous visits.

    Overall I think this place is over-priced for the experience they are offering. At over $60 a plate for most of the steak entrees, my expectation is that the food (including sides), service and atmosphere is all outstanding. It was not. The steak was delicious and cooked great, ambiance was nice, everything else was meh. The salad was basic. The "loaded" mashed potatoes were a very small portion of under-seasoned, under-salted potatoes presented in small dish on the side, kind of flat and sad-looking, with some melted cheddar on top and a few chunks of bacon. The sides were on par with what I'd expect at the big chain steakhouses. Maybe the more expensive add-on sides would have been better. Our server was okay. She was a little light on the attentiveness and a little heavy on upselling appetizers, additional drinks and desserts. Overall it was a decent meal, but I wouldn't go back. I walked out of there having spent $315 including tip on three people. At that price point, I would have expected to feel like my socks had been knocked off. Instead I felt like we had a meal that was a bit better than most chain steakhouses. I think $30-40 per plate would be a more appropriate price point for the experience.

    One of the best restaurants we have visited. The scallops were AH-mazing! The seafood pasta was made with fresh pasta and perfectly seasoned shrimp. Everything about my birthday celebration was perfect, especially the complimentary snickerdoodle brownie and ice cream. Thanks, City Square. We will be back often.

    I am sad to say I was disappointed with my meal here. I had the mushroom pasta and the sauce tasted like it was stright from the jar like I use at home, I couldn't eat much of the pasta because everytime I would try to use my fork it would break the pasta right in half since it was so soft (over cooked). My husband had a steak that was burnt and had absolutely no seasoning on it. He also had a loaded baked potato, it also had no seasoning and no butter so needless to say it was dry. Our server was amazing though, very kind and attentive, I think his name was Brandon, the beer was also very good and cold. unfortunately I would not recommend this restaurant to others and I will not return. The great staff and beautiful atmosphere sets this restaurant up for potential success, but the kitchen needs work.

Our server, Robin, was fantastic, and our food and drinks were wonderful. It was a great first time experience for us and a perfect place to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. We will be back!
