This place has gone WAAAY down hill!!! The service was terrible - we were never asked if we wanted a drink & no bread was ever brought. I asked for my ribs to be very lightly sauced - this was not done. The mashed potatoes were just a pasty, gluey, tasteless mess & the beans were lukewarm. The restaurant is in need of an update to both food & decor. I used to really enjoy it here, but will never return again!

While in Chicago for four days we chose three high-end restaurants to dine at. This was one of them and it was the most disappointing. I have dined at Weber Grill’s before although not in Chicago. We went in very early, 5 PM, to accommodate our theater schedule. As one can imagine, the dining room was nearly empty at that hour so one would think the service would be impeccable. From the time our food was delivered we never saw our waiter again until it was time for the check. He never came back to see if we wanted anything else or if we needed a refill on water or another drink. Also, we never had a manager stop by the table. At both of the other two restaurants we dined at we did. In fact one of them we saw three different managers who wanted to make sure that our food and service met expectations. I am not sure if the service at Weber Grill has declined or if this is a one-time experience but with all the restaurants in Chicago I am not inclined to return.

We came 10 minutes prior to our reservation and were told we had to wait til our reservation time to be seated even though we saw many tables open. Other than the pop I ordered being spilled on my husband by the waiter, the experience was good. This was our first time going to this restaurant and having the waiter spill on my husband first thing put a damper on the occasion. One of the managers gave me his card to send them the cleaning bill, however, that really doesn't help much. We also had to wait over 15 minutes for our drinks and our food. Obviously I had to wait even longer to replace my pop. Once we ordered our meal, the food came pretty quickly and was excellent. Great teriyaki strip steak, garlic mashed potatoes. The green beans were good too. The waiter could have been better. He rarely came to our table. We saw other waitstaff at tables all the time, but ours rarely came to our table. Other than the food, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this restaurant as the staff didn't seem very friendly to us.

We have been to Weber Grill several times in the past few years. Out latest visit was very sub-par. The appetizer arrived room temperature; the steaks were overcooked. Even though we were there on a holiday weekend, the dining crowd size was much smaller than in the past.

This is the worse place to ever go to. Especially when reservations were made. I called to change the reservation time & was told that it was fine. I got there & was told no reservation was made at all. The manager was very unprofessional & rude! the place was very loud. People were drunk and screaming. Our server was also rude. Barely checked on us.

I don't know what was going on this particular evening, but we did not have a great experience. My group of friends and I have been to this Weber a couple of times, always with decent service. This time however, it was just so so bad. So bad that I am actually writing this review! When we arrived right on time for our reservation, and told we would have to wait for our table. But I made a reservation?

Anyway, once seated, it was a fairly long time until a server came to our table (10 minutes maybe?) Actually, it was an entire room full of tables of people just waiting for some kind of service. We could tell that people were agitated. Once our server arrived and took drink orders, it was probably another 15 minutes before we saw her again. At that time we ordered our meals and those came out promptly (by someone other than our server). We should have asked for our check then and there so we wouldn't have to wait later, but unfortunately we did not. Overall, this meal could have been, at the most, 45 minutes from start to finish, but it ended up being about 90 minutes because of the server.

All while this is going on, the tables around us are even more agitated and the guy next to us had to go find another server so they could get their check and leave. The table on the other side had an issue with their food, but they couldn't do anything about it because the server never came back.

The only explanation for lack of service was that the server had tables on the complete opposite side of this very long restaurant. If that's the case, that's just poor management. We will definitely think twice about coming again, just in case this repeats.

The steak is always good, but you probably already knew that.

Our second trip to Chicago, and also to Weber Grill. Party of 4 seated about 5 minutes prior to our reservations on a busy Saturday evening. Hostess left us menus to look at. Unfortunately, server did not greet us for over 10 minutes. Disappointed about that. After that, everything was great. Three of us ordered the Filet, and at different levels of doneness. Rare, Medium-Rare, and the fine tuned description of Medium Well to Well, but closer to Medium Well. Server asked if " Medium Plus " was a good way of putting it. PERFECT !! All filets were cooked to specifications. Great flavor and juicy !

Been here many times before and always had good experience. This time we booked for our anniversary dinner. Seating host first put us at a table too close to the wait staff bus table it eat practically in our laps. I politely asked to be seated elsewhere so they moved us. Next to the hot smoking grille. Between the heat and the smoke I couldn’t breathe. I politely asked to move again so they put us outside on the street next to another bus station and smelly sewer. We had a reservation and I did indicate our anniversary. If the restaurant were packed and we didn’t have a reservation then fine but the restaurant was half empty. I was so depressed. We left and the staff were confused as to why. Went to another place down the street had a beautiful and special evening. Thanks for nothing Weber, we shall never return.

Party of 4 at 6pm on a Tuesday night. Service was prompt. We ordered 2 wedge salads, split, and it was not a problem. Good amount of dressing without overpowering the drizzle or the lettuce. Tomatoes weren't quite in season. The beef brisket was a blend between fatty & lean. The fatty portion just melted in my mouth while the leaner portion required a little sauce. Still tender though. Prime burger was as expected, just a good burger, and the baked chicken was moist with that signature charcoal flavor. No desserts this time, too full.

The quality of the meats and perfect cooking make for an excellent meal. There are other more expensive steak restaurants in the area, but few beat Weber. Prices are very reasonable and the selection is obviously meat centered.

Should I have one recommendation it would be that service should be a little more attentive. I don't like hovering servers, but ours seemed rather indifferent to our needs, such as empty water glasses, promptly taking orders, etc.

All things considered, this is a wonderful go-to restaurant.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. They accommodated us even though we were a little early. The food was wonderful.

However, on my confirmation of my reservation, it said that I would receive no points for this reservation. There was no explanation of the reason for this. This makes me very unhappy.
