    I took my wife here for her birthday this weekend and despite seeing the hostess handing a card indicating it was a birthday celebration to the runner who took us to our table, there was no mention of the birthday, no dessert offering, nothing. I understand sometimes they can't accommodate seat/table requests which were also made, but I was very disappointed they didn't do anything to acknowledge the birthday. Overall, the food was good, and the staff and server were kind and helpful, just seemed strange to have an option about the birthday when making the reservation, only to do nothing with it.

    We always have a great time hear but this time it was not pleasant . For one, the service took a long time before we even got greeted with even a menu or water second the area we were sitting in felt like we were in a banquet room put in the corner. There is no music playing the ambience was so so putting all these together, we didn’t even get to enjoy a dinner. We had to leave to go somewhere else.  we usually love the food and atmosphere, but it wasn’t up to par that day.

    Patrons grew noisier during my stay, and despite the high ceilings, it was a bit distracting- but it is a public space- on a Friday night, so… The service was attentive, never rushed, there was always someone nearby to attend to my needs. This truly enhanced the enjoyment of my meal, as it enabled me to truly set my own pace while dining. This in turn allowed me to take my time tasting everything thoroughly, adding to the ambiance. The mushrooms were thoughtfully cooked with onion, enhancing the interplay with my House filet- which itself was likely a Prime cut of beef, tender, juicy ( I requested ‘no salt’ first that very reason), so it was fab! The brussels sprouts needed less cracked black pepper- had to send them back, they were delicious when they returned. The wine list was unfamiliar to me- no St. Súpery or other names familiar to me. However Teresa, who my server Brian sent over, brought me tastings until I found the perfect complement to my meal, a wine I had experience with, a Catena. This level of service is what I expect in fine dining, so I shall be returning to Smith & Wollensky again, and again. Thank you!🙏

    One of the nicest dinners I’ve had in a long time. I no longer live downtown, but we went here for our anniversary. It was super special because our table was right next to the window that overlooks the river. Very beautiful view! Our waiter was wonderful, the service was great, food delicious, noise wasn’t loud. I was very happy with our experience. They also even provided a kind Anniversary letter, very sweet. Thank you S&W for making our Anniversary celebration so special!

    It was absolutely freezing indoors. We ordered a long bone filet and it was essentially raw. We had to send back to get to medium rare but it was then over cooked. Such a waste of an excellent cut of beef. We barely ate the sides. Not worth the $450 tab unfortunately. My first and last visit.

    I was recommended by a friend to try the $260 Swinging Tomahawk steak, and it was horrible. Barely seasoned, burnt on the outside, raw on the inside, too chewy, too much fat, it was almost repulsive, I almost spit it out. Potatoes that came as a side with it were horrible also. Literally just cut up potatoes next to a $260 steak. Truffle mac n cheese wasn’t great either. Just tasted like regular mac n cheese. Chick Fil A mac n cheese or even Popeye’s is so much better. Only positive thing was the service, waitress was very nice and polite. Other than that, don’t waste your money at this steakhouse. It was NOT worth it. Also had food stains in our water cups. Disgusting for a “highly” rated steakhouse.

    We dined at Smith & Wollensky’s for Valentines Day. We started off the bar and I ordered an Espresso Martini & that was very good & my man ordered an Uncle Nearest Old Fashioned and he really enjoyed that as well. Dave was our server and he was very informative and polite! No complaints about Dave at all. The food on the other hand was just okay , I had a Cajun rubbed Filet Mignon and it was good but the whipped potatoes are very very runny ... More like blended potatoes , and the truffle Mac is flavorless in my opinion. Once I added salt and pepper to the Mac it was better but I shouldn’t have to do that. People also kept squeezing between our table to take pictures by the river, (which we had a great view of) and it was pretty disturbing of our dinner and I don’t think they had a cared at all. The view was great for looking but not for pictures especially hovering over people but that had nothing to do with the establishment.

    For as expensive as it is the food is just not worth it. I’ve had better steaks at Texas Roadhouse. Go to Bavettes instead. The service was good but when they’re selling you a marketed $16 bottle of wine for $72 it better be. Save your money

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sure you understand many costs go into the pricing of items at a restaurant, hence the difference in price from what you may pay in a grocery store or wine shop.

    I took my fiance' for his birthday to S&W because he had not been there before and I was disappointed. The staff was wonderful but the Alll of the food was cold, the steak had no flavor and was tough and dry. This was such a shock because I had an amazing experience at their location in Miami. That was the reason I was So excited to bring him to the Chicago location. I figured no one does it better than us here in Chicago but I was wrong. I doubt very seriously if we will go back. I did not want to say anything last night because it was his birthday. What a letdown and bummer.

    The staff were all attentive and conscientious about making sure everything was taken care of. Our meal took a little longer so the manager and wait staff came over a couple of times to provide their concerns. Food was delicious!

    Wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary and had one if the best experiences. Christy was phenomenal and extremely helpful. She was very knowledgeable on everything and answered every question. She recommended the wagyu filet mignon and it has been one the best dishes we've ever had! Great food, great drinks and even greater service! Will definitely be coming back.
