Very good meal. She had the prime Filet and I had the Imperial Wagyu New York. Both were done perfectly and fantastic. Great wine section. Tasty Brussels Sprouts and the stacked baked potato was great. The service started off not great, we waited about 10 minutes before being serviced but once we did she was excellent.
We will be back.

Our headwaiter (?), Anna, definitely enhanced our experience. She was informative, helpful, and most pleasant to deal with. (We offered to adopt her).

This was not a great dining experience. Our coats and bags were not taken from us, so we stuffed them in our booth. The main dining area was also littered with people's coats and bags. The music was also very loud - we were dining at 6:30pm on a Tuesday evening, not peak party time.

The service was extremely fast - it was like they wanted to turn the table around as quickly as possible, despite not being busy at all. The appetizer was taken away and immediately replaced by the entree, and the check was put on the table while we were still eating without being asked if we even wanted a coffee or anything else.

The cocktails were very good. The popovers were bland and cold. The steak was cooked well and had good flavor but was a bit tough. The millionaire's potato and mushroom mac and cheese were both bland and under-seasoned. The baked Alaska was overdone, to the point that the meringue was straight up burnt and bitter, and the ice cream inside lacked flavor and tasted cheap.

For a $250 meal for two, this was a very disappointing experience.

As expected! Up scale dinning should be up scale. Service was great, didn’t push any specials on us! Recommendations on apps/salads/steaks/deserts were on point!! Even the bartender was friendly and took the order before we even settled into the seat.

I can’t believe I’m saying fair but this is mainly because because the main course was fell short from prior experience. Mac and cheese : amazing. burger: was very good. Cheesecake : amazing. Steak : I was not impressed since it was tough to cut. Especially from prior experience where it was juicy and very easy to cut. Wife agree it was disappointing.

Great food, great service will be going back when I revisit Chicago. I had a miso lobster and it was cooked to perfection. For dessert I had the pistachio crème brûlée which was delicious, not to mention the Complementary cotton candy was an added treat.

RPM was recommended by two different people that didn’t know each other. We immediately noted The ambience as soon as we walked through the door. High end look with a contemporary and casual vibe. The service was amazing and the food will be something I will never forget until the next time I can make it back to Chicago. the crust they were able to achieve on the NY Strip and still cook it to a medium temp is sadly hard for most restaurants to do. I don’t mind paying for food if the quality matches the price and RPM does their best to do so.

Always a great experience here at RPM. Only this time steak was brought out a bit undercooked. Won’t discourage me from coming back but I overheard another customer complain to the waitstaff about a similar issue. Maybe back staff isn’t on point.

Both the service and food here were truly exceptional. The hostess was nice and friendly and we were given complimentary Prosecco for my boyfriend and I’s anniversary. Our server was very professional, amicable, and knowledgeable of the menu, he was great all around. I think his name was Parker but I could be wrong. Everything about the food was delicious and the presentation was great. We got bread and the steak tartare for our appetizers and then the Hokkaido snow beef and the Mishima Tomahawk for our entrees. I cannot stress enough how delicious it all was however, I think the highlight was for sure the Hokkaido snow beef. It was just so rich in flavor and very tender. Our drinks were fantastic as well, my boyfriend got the old fashioned and said that it was the best one he’s ever tried. While the bill was pretty high, it was all 100% worth it given the quality of the service and the food. I would highly recommend RPM Steak.

So I saw the 14k Chocolate cake on the show "the best thing I ever ate" and thought ok I'll bite. Greeted warmly by the professional and well-trained hostess, we were handed off to Casey our server who was very knowledgeable. My husband and I ordered the 22oz 28 day dry aged ribeye to share. We typically love our steaks Pittsburgh MR. I regret to say it was over charred and too dry for our liking. The 14k cake on the other hand was delectable!

Not anywhere near worth the $$$. We were not seated anywhere near our reservation time. We were sat in a booth near the bar and it was LOUD! The drinks were a small portion and the rib eye filet was no where near as tender as sold. The bright spot was out waiter who really did a great job.

Lots of steak houses in Chicago and I will be finding new ones and places I have been to for sure before returning here.

Probably the worst Caesar salad. Not seasoned at all. Tried to get pepper for the salad it took asking three people.

Great steaks and great service after a tough beginning.

So sad you’ll not offer Fireman & Police that amazing discount.
Men & Women in uniform are not allowed to be at restaurants and drinks any sort of alcohol. So it’s impossible to go out in uniform if you’re enjoying a nice dinner with your spouse or significant other. And have a glass of wine.
Sad.

We took my father in law for his birthday and the whole experience did not disappoint. The coal roasted king crab appetizer is a real standout along with the pork belly. On this evning they had a spiny lobster special which didn't survive for long once it hit the table. Do yourself a favor and splurge on one of the Wagyu or Kobe steaks because they are expertly prepared and really stand out.

While the food was great our server, Dritan, really made the night one to remember. He was very attentive and had some great recommendations for both food and drink. Having dined here multiple times now he is without a doubt the best they have and he made sure no details was overlooked.
