The service and food was outstanding. We will definitely make this a regular dinning spot when we visit Chicago.

The whole dining experience was underwhelming. The food was "ok". The service was subpar. There are many other steakhouses in Chicago that I will be dining at next time.

Great dining experience! Food was top notch. Celebrated my wife's birthday and RPM did not disappoint! I wish I was there on someone else's dime - there are some really interesting higher end options to try out. There are good options for a more mortal pricepoint as well as some really unique dining experience options. We had some beef fillet and some bison. Both were delicious. Octopus appetizer was great as were the sides and desert!

I got the center cut filet mignon and it was the best steak I've ever had. The cheese bread fondue, mashed potatoes, and baked alaska were all awesome as well.

Second time dining here for a birthday. The previous time was much better. This time we were seated on a four top in the middle of the room and it was so drafty I️ wore my coat for the entire meal. I️ get it that we weren’t there to spend 1000 bucks, but generally got the vibe from the get go that the restaurant wasn’t very interested in us. Food came out at temp barely past lukewarm. One very positive note is the Som. He knows his stuff!!

Came here for a Christmas dinner with my husband, Dad, and stepmom. The menu looked incredible and everything we had was delicious. The crispy brussel sprouts had a hint of sweetness to them and weren't overly soggy/heavy-- they were light as air. The wedge salad had olives in it, which was a delightful surprise to me. The dinner was followed by a surprise of blue cotton candy sent from the chef. Great meal.

I’ll say that this was my mistake- We arrived late- totally my fault. Our guests were running late, so I went to the restaurant to check in. Without making eye contact, the hostess asks for my name. I told her, and still not even looking at me and in monotone she says, “we had to bump your table because you are late.” At that point, I nearly went next door for tacos, because I felt like an inconvenience. Having my res bumped is normal! I was 25 minutes late! Still no eye contact, “I can put you back in but you’ll have to wait” as she looks behind me and to the right of me, never at me. My check out experiences at TJMAXX are more pleasant and I’ve felt more welcomed. I ask, “How long?” And she shrugs, “about 15 minutes”. They texted that our table was ready 5 minutes later (they won’t come find you at the bar, think high end food, nicer ambience but in the mass movement style, minus those vibrating discs). Food is wonderful. Our sever is friendly, knowledgeable, and high energy. The bus boys filled our water continuously. It took forever to get waited on. We ordered wine and it showed up after our main courses. We were served the wrong side dish, and by the time someone came to check on us, we were half-way finished so I didn’t bother sending it back, even though our guests hate mushrooms (we had asked for broccolini). By the time our $600 bill came, I was embarrassed that I looked like a person who took my guests to an expensive place to show off, not because it was great or would treat them well. In fact, when I tried to find the restroom- my bad again, I guessed poorly and went to the bar area. I ran into a staff area by accident and when I asked the first person I saw where it was, the staff member said, “you are completely in the wrong place” and walked away. Another, super-friendly guy helped me, thankfully. But, and when my elderly guest asked me where the restroom was, I just decided to walk him there.

6 men had to squeeze into a circle booth and the server took 15 minutes between drink orders and another 30 for food order. Was unusual for my service and seating at a restaurant I frequently bring clients to.

Good place for a business lunch. The wait staff should be a bit quicker in terms of getting the food out.

Expensive for lunch but price fix menu is a value.

Great server, amazing help with menu.

Boss boys were pretty poorly trained. Just grabbed stuff and didn’t ask if we were done.

Kitchen had food done at different times so that was frustrating. Server took one thing off our bill to help, but no one want to be the only one st the table with food

We made a reservation and the restaurant was running behind- 25 minutes behind. Sat at the bar and had some drinks. Drinks were quite good!

Once we were finally seated, we informed the waiter we were there for dessert to celebrate my mother's birthday. Cotton candy was brought out- nice touch. Drinks were fine. Dessert was not as fabulous as I'd imagined. The chocolate cake was mediocre, but the creme brulee was delicious!

Waiter was rather unpleasant and made some rude comments about his wife. Overall just an underwhelming experience.

Unfortunately, the experience at rpm steak was disappointing. Food was fantastic but service was atrocious. We were seated 35minuts after the reservation time (told 15minutes behind schedule when we showed up) and it took the waiter 30 minutes to even take a drink order. The rest of the evening followed a similar delay throughout dinner. We left 3 hours later due to slow service.

We were never rushed and the meal was excellently prepared and served. Rather expensive dining occasion but well worth the experience. We will definitely visit in the future.
