S&R continues to be my favorite restaurant around, near or far!

We had a very nice meal at Steel and Rye. We were originally seated in a very tight space near a larger party with small children. We asked to be moved to a quieter spot and they accommodated.

The food was excellent. The appetizer portions were very small. There was only 3 very small pieces of octopus in the octopus salad for example.

Overall the wait staff was good once they figured out that we had moved from another table.

I will go back.

We went here for our second anniversary and, as always, had a marvelous time. They had a last cancellation at the special open kitchen seating and we were really excited to sit there. Our service was impeccable, the meal well-paced and delicious, and they even threw in a special dessert. We always have a fun time here, whether it is for brunch, snacks and cocktails at the bar, or a fancy meal. We will definitely be back.

This was a gathering of 11 old friends that are from the city, western suburbs and south shore that have not seen each other for quite some time. For a group or size the staff took excellent care of us. The meals arrived at the same time and were prepared perfectly. Everyone was pleased. We lingered at the table after desert and the staff continued to take care of us. We will be back soon.

We went to celebrate a special occasion. The food was delicious as always. Service was excellent. Bill was pricey, but it's not a surprise.

Great spot, really enjoyed all parts of the meal. Very cool decor, wonderful variety in menu but not too much and overwhelming. Will absolutely be back.

This wasn't our first time here, Steel and Rye never disappoints! The service is excellent, food amazing, and a great selection of drinks. We celebrated our 12th anniversary there and enjoyed a nice quiet dinner outside. It was perfect. Thank you for the excellent dinning experience!

First time and really enjoyed it. We don't live nearby, but we'll be back to sample some more great food and wine

We were a group of 7, with a couple with hearing issues - the staff was friendly and helpful about rearranging a table that was less intensely noisy, and even turned off a speaker that was over the table. The ambiance was great - spacious - no-frills ingeniously repurposed industrial. The brunch/lunch food (re-imagined Eggs Benedict and Corned Beef Hash, an incredible Blue-Fish Toast) desserts (Peach Cake!!), and wine were outstanding. Support service was fine, though perhaps our particular wait-person was learning on the job.

We love Steel and Rye, and got to enjoy it once again on a recent Saturday night. It was quieter than usual and we even got to sit outside on the patio. Food consistently good as always, great service, got to say hello to Dan the owner who is a wonderful host.
