Enjoyed a dinner here with colleagues. The steak was fantastic and the bernaise sauce was lovely. Salad was fresh and yummy, too. Definitely a classic style steak house in a great Chicago location. Great service and happening place. Worth a visit in The Windy City.

The Steak Tartare was fabulous, and the rib eye was as tender as you would hope for. The truffle mac and cheese side was good, but the seasonal corn and cheese starter was nothing special and a very small portion. Lobster Bisque was excellent, and the bread was phenomenal...pan roasted wild mushrooms were delicious and a great accompaniment to any steak.

An older and out of date review from me - sorry. Am catching up with a few. This is perhaps one of the finest steakhouses i've been too. The winelist is excellent, some pricey stuff in there but even at the more modest end of things its amazing. The oysters were superb and the steak even better. Been there three times now I think and always impressive. Dont miss it.

We had a mid-afternoon lunch at Smith & Wollensky -- hadn't really intended to eat there, but it turned out to be a favorite. We dined outside, under an umbrella and overlooking the river. It took a few minutes to be seated, but the bartender inside was kind enough to bring us warm bread to tide us over (we were famished). We tried the tenderloin sandwich and the jumbo shrimp, and both were delicious. The wine list is extensive. And the service was excellent. Not cheap, but very memorable and worth the price.

Wanted to eat near the river. The 1 order of fillet and shrimp was enough for 2 people. The wait staff was great and also appreciated their wine recommendation. Spulrged on the chocalate cake which we took home -it was Huge!
