Weber Grill never disappoints!! We have had great food, drinks and the atmosphere is always right, for a date night or just getting together with friends. We love to eat there when in Chicago!

We were coming into the city (Chicago) from Michigan for a combination birthday/wedding anniversary celebration for my wife and I. The weather was bad coming in making us late for 5:45 PM reservation (late by 45 minutes!). We called to advise.
We were warmly greeted, wished a happy anniversary and told there would be no problem and within a few minutes we were seated at what we felt was a nice tablet. Tim, our server, was great. We were often checked on and the manager and staff wished us a happy celebration.

The food was delicious. I had the New York Strip steak with a Gorgonzola crust and Black Station Cab and my wife had a Bacon Burger on a Brioche bun. It was a perfect evening. You won’t be disappointed.

We were 20 mins late for our reservation but we were still seated right away on Valentine's Day. Food and drinks were sooo goood! Signed up for the Weber Grill Club because it seems like we will be coming back often and need the extra points for freebies!

Our server seemed stretched over too many tables. He was friendly and tried to be attentive but also had a group table of about 14 and so we did wait for service. The room itself was not too warm or chilly, enjoyable. The food was mediocre. We had the sampler plate and the food was hot, not too spicy, a lot like an Applebee's. We ate at this dining spot because it was very close to our hotel. Our onion strings were greasy, the boneless wings were good, nicely seasoned and juicy. We also had the onion soup which was very good. A nice place to grab a bite after a long day in the city.

Weber Grill is pretty good, but not great. The baked potato was waxy, flavorless and obviously refrigerated from a previous day or two before. Crab cakes and salmon were good, though.

As a longtime Weber BBQ fan (located in Switzerland!) I took the occasion to celebrate my birthday together with my wife in the Chicago branch of Weber Grill.
I chose the 16 oz Ribeye Steak with Yukon potatoes and grilled asparagus.
The steak was just delicious and I can recommend the place to anyone who loves grilled meat.
It was really worth visiting. Seeya again some other time.

If you are looking for truly excellent BBQ options, regardless of beef, lamb, pork or fish, you’ve come to the right place. The quantity of choices may not be as large as expected, but the quality and speed of the food and service is impressive.
It’s a little more expensive than surrounding restaurants, but the price-value ratio justifies this.
Meat is prepared precisely to your request and despite being a busy and popular place you never feel pressured to free up your table, once you’re done with your meals.
Only point of criticism is the tab water that is served which has high chlorine levels, forcing you to order bottled options.

Weber Grill's menu has something to please everyone. The food is delicious and the chocolate cake is incredible. I hope I was not rude to use a spoon to eat the little pot of warm chocolate (meant for drizzling over the cake) :-)

Weber Grill in River North, downtown Chicago, has been one of our favorites for nearly a decade now. This particular evening we had meatloaf and one of the chicken offerings. Both were very good. Waiter was friendly, and used her charm to work on us to get a cocktail and appetizer. She saw that dessert was not going to happen and didn't push! Food was excellent. Tables are close together, so don't be surprised if you end up having some conversation with neighbors. The tables are generally full, so general noise level is a bit higher than most places we visit, reservations are recommended, and quiet, intimate conversation might be a challenge. Excellent evening out.

One of the best steaks I've had in a long time. I had the Prime New York Strip and I like it Pittsburg style. They had cooked it to perfection. The service was great, the waiter immediately knew the wine we were talking about. Overal superb experience.
