Amazing food with outstanding service. I would definitely order the lobster bisque again, but more importantly - Scott Holman on piano was wonderful. He set the mood with great piano playing and such a lovely voice. I would definitely return just to hear him.

Came here for dinner during a recent visit to Chicago. Decor was very interesting as they have old pictures of Chicago, some of which I never knew existed back in the 50's. Service was excellent. You have a waiter who was very good at explaining to you the different kinds of steak on the menu for the night, an assistant... More

Asked (probably foolishly) our transfer driver for recommendation of the 'best restaurant in Chicago' and acted upon it. The restaurant itself is very atmospheric, with a prohibition era feel enhanced by plenty of old photographs on the walls. Pleasant staff but as is reasonable to expect I suppose, a massively steak-based menu, with little else of interest. We went for... More

You won't find a better steak in Chicago. The atmosphere is right out of the 1950's. I visit every time I am in Chicago

I visited the Chicago Chop House on Saturday night with my wife and and another couple. The food was great but service and the wine list prevent me from giving a higher overall rating. On the positive side, the bone in filet steaks were very flavorful, the appetizers of oysters, crab cakes and sea scallops were also very good. And... More

The Chicago Chop House offers exceptional service, but the steak quality isn't what it used to be. I have noticed a decrease in quality over the last few years, and for the price I expect more. Next time I'll spend my money elsewhere.

While the food was very good, I have eaten at better steak houses for much less than the cost of this place. Wine list was marked up beyond high end competition and every entrée and side dish was priced at the top. Service was professional but "up selling" continued through the meal.

Went there for my 20 th anniversary. The food was excellent and the waiter is probably one of the best I have seen. We had dry aged long bone ribeye, backed potatoe, salad and a half bottle of wine for $250. The quality was incredible but I think you can get a similar meal for 20% less.

They charged and cheated us for 1750USD for 4 people by making us order food that was not on menu without telling price . Strategy is to make you order products not on menu and charge 160 dollars a steak and 50 dollars for a McCallans 18 yrs old. Would you ever ask on a dining table the price of... More

Had a business dinner here. The food was excellent, the service was Spot On. Very high prices. Great for a splurge or on the expense account, but if its value you seek, move on.
