“Non-chicago chicago steakhouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This place is not about chicago food - in reality nothing related to chicago at all, meat is good and steaks have some signatures meals but all other meals are average. Be prepared to have pricy drinks. So in general it is a bit too expensive (expect the prices of the Signature room in chicago) but no scenic view and the food is so-so).

“It Ain't Mortons.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The first hint Chicago Prime aint Mortons is that you arrive by escalator. The greeting, chilly at best sets the tone for the service experience. Perhaps its simply asking too much that the steaks are great. After all, isn't that the point of a steak house? Well, they aren't great. They are average, at best. The raw bar is the big winner. Fresh, chilled and well-presented. The steaks? Meh. Passable wine list, but the red wine is served warm, as in something more than room temperature. Which is weird. Like the steaks, which taste as though they have been frozen before cooking. The "parmesan crusted fries" are frozen french fries drizzled in chunks of parmesan. The wedge salad tries very hard to be the classic steak house wedge salad, but falls short with too little dressing floating on too wet lettuce. Asking that the cooks can at least read the instructions on the packaged Bearnaise sauce mix seems reasonable. They can't, or couldn't or didn't or just won't. All to say that there must be a better steak house in town. The search continues.

“Go for Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

If you prefer good food and service in a relaxed atmosphere, then this is your place. Although somewhat "elegant" not the place to go if you want to see the "beautiful people." Tables are set with linens and glassware. They are not cramed together so even though quite a few seatings are offered, it still feels private and intimate. This restaurant is all about food and service.

The menu offers a wide range of food and steaks are cooked to perfection. Prices may seem a bit steep, but a person needs to remember they are in Moscow, enough said. AND, the portions are very ample for any size appetite compared to other "pricey" restaurants. Side dishes will feed 3 or 4 depending on your appetite. Definitely enough for two. Be hungry.

Service is excellent. The wait staff understands your requests, everyones course arrives at the same time (which is highly unusual in Moscow) and food is hot, not luke warm.

If you have eaten out in Moscow more than a few times, you will understand my statements regarding food and service. If not, try Chicago Prime anyway. You will not be disappointed.

PS - the restrooms are spotless and they offer cloth towels for drying your hands. Yahoo.

“BBQ and football...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Went on a Sunday night to catch some NFL football, they had EPL games on when we went but readily switched a couple of screens to the NFL game.

Not very busy when we visited, sat at the bar, had a few drinks and ate. The bbq ribs were very good.

Nice place, decent atmosphere.

“Overpriced, lacking in atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This was recommended by our hotel as 'the best steak place in Moscow'. We went along about 915pm and it was more or less deserted. Tired looking, miserable decor, lacking in atmosphere and very few people. The food was average, steaks were ok, but as usual for Moscow it was massively overpriced, and the shabby surroundings made us feel we didnt want to stay for dessert / coffee as it was like sitting in an airport lounge or a cafeteria. There are better places to eat in Moscow for approx 100 euros a head which is what it cost us.
