Tavern on Rush is, for my money, the finest steakhouse in Chicago, and I've tried quite a few. The service is always superb, the food is delicious and of the highest quality. This is where I take friends who visit from out of state. It's the Gold Standard for Chicago steakhouses.

Always have good food and service at Tavern On Rush. We arrived early for our Easter reservation and elected to be seated early in the downstairs bar area. Hindsight we should have waited for our table upstairs for one simple reason...it was a little crowded downstairs. Ended up moving tables due the tight space that resulted from our table neighbors cramming 5 people into a small high top. Our server was great, food and drinks were great as usual, just wish there was a little more focus on seating comfort over making sure as many people as the Fire Marshall will allow are crammed in.

Ask for server Jason, he's a hoot and makes excellent recommendations. We chose to return for a 2nd evening meal in our short 5 night visit because the food and service was excellent. If you love dover sol, and bone in filet, this place is a gem.

The wait was definitely worth it. Make sure you make reservations - it is hard to get in otherwise. Once we got seated, the waitstaff was very pleasant and attentive. The waiter was very helpful in recommending food, offered to show our steaks prior to cooking, and was very pleasant. Atmosphere was perfect for date night or special occasion. Classy, delicious, and overall price was worth the food and experience.

Hands down the best steak in Chicago. I’ve been to all the great restaurants in this town but nothing comes close to steak at Tavern on Rush. Benny the maitre’d is amazing. Cocktails were generous and reasonably priced besides tasting great. Although the downstairs can be very noisy, the upstairs dining room is quieter with great ambiance. Can’t wait to visit again.

We had a party of 10 and requested a table near a TV for March Madness. They took our request and had the table waiting for us in the perfect area upstairs where we could all sit together and enjoy the amazing food. I’m pretty sure it was the best filet mignon ive had in a very little big time. Jerry was our server and made the experience even more enjoyable. All 10 of us left the restaurant staying Jerry definitely made our experience a memorable one. I would recommend this place to anyone that enjoys a good meal and good atmosphere with an authentic vibe.

Since I'd dined at Tavern On Rush a few years back, I decided to book a reservation for a business dinner after a trade show day.
Our reservations were at 8:15. We decided to go to Rush Street early, and when I inquired about an earlier dinner, we were seated immediately. We were seated upstairs over looking Rush St. Great table. Our waiter was timely and friendly. Not too "in your face", but there enough if we needed anything. His suggestions were spot on. Every bite was delicious! We shared the entire meal so we could enjoy a couple of apps and sides and weren't disappointed. Actually, the steak, which we were looking forward to, was probably the least amazing part of the meal. Still good, but not as amazing as the rest of the meal. You won't be disappointed! Well worth the money.
