    Was very disappointed with our first visit there. I brought my cousins here since they are big fans of steak and it's in the neighborhood. The Medium Rare Steak was well done and wasn't that good. Our side took an extra five minutes to come out. I am embarrassed and will make the extra distance to Gibsons in the future.

    Met a friend prior to cubs game. Happened to be early and they were able to accommodate the slight change. Everything was great except once the check came it took a lengthy amount of time for someone to come back and had to grab a member of waitstaff. Great food! Friendly people all around!

    The food is always good! The service was good when we were first seated. Our orders came out promptly. But then our waitress disappeared and we sat and waited for 20 minutes to ask for check. It looked like she was overwhelmed when we asked to pay.

    We have dined at this location before - as well as the West Loop location and enjoyed it. This time around we may have been there on an off night. With the exception of the oysters we ordered (which were delicious), we were all very unhappy with the quality of the food. Our table ordered steak, chicken and two different types of fish (mahi-mahi and salmon). The fish was overcooked and very dry, the chicken was cooked well but lacked any seasoning or flavor. The steak seemed to be cooked well but I believe the chef didn't know how to properly slice the particular cut of meat so it ended up being extremely chewy. With drinks our dinner for 4 people was around $350 which is a lot to pay for a meal of that quality. We won't be returning.

    Very limited, but expensive menu. No salad or sides with your meal. Everything is a la carte. I should have read the menu before we went. The location is what you are paying for. Servers are nice, but not worth the cost or the food.

    Service was great. Shrimp in shrimp cocktail were sort of mushy and not very big. Burger was ok and Cesar salad was good. Adult beverages were tasty, although small and expensive. But we all know prices in the big city are high. The atmosphere and the service staff would bring me back.

    Very expensive for the quality/quantity of food. My steak was nowhere close to the 8oz it said on the menu (6oz if I was lucky). $450 plus tip for 2 mediocre apps, dozen oysters, 6 drinks, a small overcooked steak with small portion of fries, a salad, 1/2 chicken and a sandwich. Drinks were very slow to get. Pretty bummed because I’ve had great dinners at the regular Swift and Sons restaurant.

    Arrived for a nice dinner. Waitress seemed less than thrilled to be there and was a bit rude. Food seemed a little pricey for the quantity. Only after the 4 of us had ordered filets and sides did she perk up a little. The other staff seemed to be a lot nicer and would have a conversation with you. The bill for the four of us was $480 (order oysters - which were a little small, a couple drinks each, filets and sides). Food was just adequate. Paid in cash and due to the experience of the waitress and her attitude, we didn’t feel a huge tip was in order. Nonetheless, we gave her 10% (knowing the restaurant already imposes a 3% surcharge to pay for their workers health insurance). She was over in the corner counting the cash, was up talking to the hostess station and then we asked if everything was ok when she passed by. She said, “yes, I got the 10% tip”. Rude. Don’t recommend the place and frankly, it probably won’t be around long with wait staff acting in the way she did.

    Was there on a Tuesday, food was ok service was a bit slow. Think they only had like 1 sever training a new hire. Drink orders took like 10-15 minutes it felt like. Ordered steak Medium Rare for $55 one would think they would cook it to order.

    Super slow service. We arrived at 4:45 thinking we’d have plenty of time to make it across the street for the 6:15 Cubs game. We ordered right away but our food took forever. When we mention to our waitress that we had a game to get to her response was “I think a lot of people do.” The restaurant was not busy at all so I don’t know what the problem was. Also, we ordered the cauliflower and it was inedible. Such a disappointing experience.
