Excellent meal for business meeting. Superb service- was able to split bills for us easily, food was outstanding.
Wonderful ambience and amazing food. Night to remember!
Excellent food, wonderful wine recommendation and impeccable service.
This is handy in the Hyatt but small and cozy. The staff was attentive and started is with a popover. It was as warm not hot and fluffy but not as light and airy as I normally like. The Caesar salad was the traditional recipe with the anchovies. Perfect. I hate when places feel like they have to put their own spin on the traditional recipe. The Filet was tender and nicely medium rare just as ordered. The whipped potatoes were fine but nothing special. And the chocolate cake was huge. Definitely for two or four. It was a lovely evening but not cheap $100 for one of us. A great place for an expense account.
Steak was over done. Front of house excellrnt. Back of house needs work. They comped the streal which was appropriate. They need to consider use of sous vide approach to get better control.
Everything was great except for the noise level. Sounded like large blowers going full blast and made conversation difficult.
The restaurant is located on the first floor of the Hyatt Regency. Though part of the hotel, and though mid level hotels tend to not have the best restaurants, we found Stetsons to be unexpectedly good. The filet was excellent quality, seasoned nicely, and cooked perfectly. The scallops (which are easy to mess up) were likewise done perfectly with a nice sear and excellent texture. I also must commend the serving staff. Out waiter was both prompt, engaging and knowledgeable. The restaurant was an unexpected enjoyable find.
Excellent food.. Attentive staff.. That made for a very enjoyable evening with my wife and daughter.
The food is fantastic. Order the octopus appetizer, it's great. I had the chefs selection sushi entree acne each piece was among the best quality fish I've ever had. My wife enjoyed her filet with the mushroom sauce, but the highlight was the whipped potatoes. Seems strange, but there was something about them that tasted out of this world. Highly recommended for a romantic dinner, who cares if the entrance is in the hotel lobby.
This is a great date night spot! It's the perfect place for my husband and I as he is a meat eater and me not so much. We get the best of both worlds. I loved that you get to customize your steak with different sauces. My husband had the ribeye, which had a nice crust on it and was cooked perfectly, and the whipped potatoes. I had the rainbow tuna maki as an appetizer and the salmon for an entree. They were both incredibly flavorful and fresh. The salmon portion was a lot bigger than I've ever gotten in similar restaurants and was absolutely delicious. The service was spot on and all the wait staff, especially our waiter Jose, were very friendly.
The food and drinks were very good. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive. All the waitstaff has a real attitude and engaged in conversation. We were there on a Thursday and is was not crowded or loud.
Lovely dinner with my hubby. Service was wonderful. My husband loved his Cap steak
Seafood and steak were crazy good
Service was friendly and helpful
A real treat
It was a great experience for myself and my wife for our anniversary
The dinner was delicious. Everyone was so concerned that the food was OK which of course it was. Will definitely go back.
It was nice place to go!!
The suggestions/service/food were outstanding!
Forget what you think you know about hotel restaurants. Hyatt has taken the Stetson to a very high level of quality. Add to that ... few establishments can balance the beef-sushi offering set. Stetson shines on both sides, and beyond. I thoroughly enjoyed the sea bass, while my wife delighted in her sashimi combination. Diners around us were obviously savoring their steak selections. The open kitchen concept enabled us to witness Stetson’s chefs at work, and they are obviously a disciplined, caring group. Every plate was prepared and served with care. The entire staff was attentive and friendly. In short, Stetson is a destination, not just a hotel convenience.
Really good strip steak. Service was friendly and informative on the menu items. They were able to recommend some sides for us. Definitely pricey but that's the going rate for Chicago Steakhouses.
We visited Stetson for Valentine's Day. The restaurant was pleasant and the service was respectful. We started with cocktails and the Octopus shared plate. The cocktails were bold and robust and the octopus was absolutely delightful - highly recommend.
We then moved to a couple of pieces of snapper nigiri which were fresh and appetizing. Our entree was the 24oz bone in ribeye, which they graciously split for me and my better half. The steak was cooked very well and the mushroom sauce we ordered with was a great touch. We also had the brussel sprouts for a side item which were a great compliment to the steak.
All in all, a solid 4 stars. I thought the prices were a touch high, but it is downtown Chicago. The service was quaint and respectful but didn't match the high end presentation that the restaurant seemed to aspire to. Cocktails were strong and robust which was appreciated for the high end pricing, so overall, a solid choice for the value and we would return.
Both ribeyes had at least 1/3 fat on them , that's not something that you expect for a $50 steak,our waitress never checked on us,the only attentive person was the one refilling the water, that's sad
I had a wonderful evening! The food was very delicious. I can't wait to go back.
Even though our waiter was outstanding, I was very disappointed. First I ordered my steak medium it came out well done. But, my main complaint was that a young lady very pretty blonde hair came out spoke to the table that was right next to us and then proceeded to skip our table go to the table right next to us on the other side and do the same thing. I was hurt. It was Valentine's day and when you have demanding jobs and 5 kids it hard to get out. Now I don't want to play the race card but both table were Caucasian. My husband and I (African American) sat in the middle. Truly disappointed. The waiter whom I'm so sorry that I don't remember his name came out an apologized and comped my steak but I would've paid for my meal. That's wasn't the point. I was just upset.
Thank you Michelle Courts
Restaurant was clos d despite the reservation time we chose. Thanks for that lack of info.
Made reservation through Open Table and received confirmation. Arrived to find sign indicating that Stetsons Modern Steak + Sushi was closed, apparently for the month of February. Needless to say, this was irksome and disappointing since we then had to scramble and ended up with rather unsatisfying dinner at a place that had the advantage of being open. I don't think it is asking too much of the restaurant in question and Open Table to list restaurants as "closed" when they shut down.
Not a friendly atmosphere. The day before our reservation we received a reminder phone call in which we were told that dinner has a 2-hour limit. This is usually enough time even with dessert and coffee, but it seemed awkward to have the clock on us when we are paying the rather high prices for everything we order. Next time we will visit Shula's or Ralph Lauren restaurant instead.
Also Stetsons doesn't have their own restrooms. You need to stand in line with the conventioneers in the Hyatt lobby. Yikes!
The grilled octopus appetizer was delicious. All staff were accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed -sommelier was excellent, bartender so service oriented, waiter great, sushi chef top notch!
Best service on the face of the earth. Excellent steaks and sushi. Would highly recommend.
Awesome place for a special occasion or a nice romantic date! Fabulous birthday chocolate cake and the staff was impeccable.
Loved the drinks and food! Our server was excellent too! I was staying at the Hyatt so this was very convenient.
Amazing steak. Outstanding service. We'll be back and will recommend to everyone we know!
Great steaks, oysters and salad. Service was top notch!
Although our server was kind it did not make up for how slow the service was. We sat with our drink glasses empty most of the time. When the food was served it was good. I do have to say that the grilled octopus was probably the best we've had.
Great steak and sushi. Good ambiance. Wish there were more tables closer to the fireplace. Service was a bit on the slow side.
Didn’t enjoy being seated next to hot kitchen.
Pete and the team did a great job as always. It was a wonderful experience on a busy night.
Excellent experience. Wonderful staff. Very good wines and cocktails. Sushi appetizer were great.
The steaks were cooked to perfection. Service was outstanding. They really take care of you at Stetson's
Just a cluster. Food is very good however service has much to be desired.
Showed up with all 4 guests for a 7:00pm reservation early 6:40. Was told can’t be seated too early. (Restaurant was not full)
However we went to bar and brought back drinks as requested. Was told couldn’t stand in bar. Was taken back by the fact that 2 more groups for 7:00 reservations showed up at 6:55 and were seated before us. Total lack of respect or just poor operations
Dinner was Excellent food top notch. Gets better though. In my Hotel room 45-60 later my server called my personal cell number and said “you didn’t pay for your meal”. I was really caught off guard since I had my $420 receipt with me.
Spoke with manager and he apologized. But really poor taste. He ran my card I signed and left a tip. Just hard to believe the server can’t keep track of his paperwork. Or be able to Lonoke in computer.
In closing food is Excellent if you want to put up with poor service go for it. It not stay away.
Our meal was fantastic. I think our server was new as she seemed nervous and didn't know the menu or the options but she was very nice overall.
