I loved this experience! The food was fantastic, service was phenomenal, wine was perfection, and overall absolutely great restaurant!
Best filet I’ve had in Chicago! Melt in your mouth tender and juicy! Our server David was fantastic
Wanted to honor Restaurant Week and celebrate the hope of Spring. Everything was great: especially the service and the food. Didn't plan to order from the restaurant week menu but we found everything we liked and the price was a deal! Cocktails, 3 courses and a bottle of nice wine afforded a generous tip for service (including not rushing us out until it was necessary - 2+hours.) The only thing I found surprising was how busy the restaurant was on a 5:15 pm reservation... We went early to have a "covid-friendly table." While we did get a booth, the place was full and tables were turning. That lead to the "moderate" noise level rating... probably a bit UNDER moderate but it was definitely NOT quiet. Anyway, we had a great time and it was good to see so many people enjoying life, getting back to the new normal. (RE: Covid.... the cleaning between diners was evident, servers wore masks and patrons wore them when not eating/drinking and in moving about the restaurant. We did feel safe.)
Everything was fantastic! Not to be dramatic but the staff was phenomenal. Food and drinks came to the table with precision. Will definitely eat here again on my next visit to Chicago.
Apps were great. So was dessert. steaks we good x/mine was a little thin for a T-Bone and it was overcooked. I ordered med-rare and I got medium. Lastly, i dint care for the 2hr time limit on the table as I felt we were rushed. My bill for 6 people was $944 so we def ate big. But we would have liked to have had more time to enjoy our food slowly.
get the spicy shrimp ("angry" shrimp?) Great views
Dinner just because date
Rib eye steak is the best in Chicago right now. Jerome was a terrrific waiter. Thank you for a nice night.
27th Wedding Anniversary
Very expensive but so worth it‼️
Incredible food and waitstaff was awesome
The customer service was excellent. The food was extraordinary especially the Angry Shrimp, the filet mignon and the fried lobster. The drinks were perfect the Strawberry and the Peach.
Our steaks were out of this world delicious. Service was great and a fabulous time was had by all.
I went here for restaurant week. Amazing view, great value for the food, and I would definitely come again. It's worth the price!
The Ambiance is Chicago's Gold Coast right on the rivers edge...magnificent scenery...the staff and managers were welcoming and attentive...the meal was par excellence...you must try the Bacon 🥓 appetizer with peanut sauce and the truffle mac and cheese 🧀...My over all experience left me well sated and serene...
Thank you so much for the very lovely review. We are so appreciative of your kindness.
Fantastic service, great food, and ambiance!
Thank you! We appreciate your very kind reveiw
Poor service from server, really lacked table touches. Feel like he focused on everything BUT my table. The manager made it a pleasant experience for me and my girlfriend for our anniversary but I don't see myself returning due to the poor service toward the high value. I feel if gratuity is included in the total than I should have service that reflects it.
They shrimp tasted burnt
I'm so sorry about that. Did you possibly get the grilled shrimp? If so, they are prepared on the grill so they will have a charred taste.
Phenomenal service and food! Can't wait to dine again. The grownup appletini is to die for.
The food was very bland making for a very disappointing experience. Will not be returning
Thank you for your comments and I will share your comments with our chef
The food and service was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much, we are glad you enjoyed dining with us.
It was our anniversary. Everything was great. The service, the ambience, and especially the food was wonderful. We were sat in the perfect spot right by the river so the view was great as well. I had my first ever medium-well New York Strip steak from a restaurant. DELICIOUS! Juicy! The sauce tasted like a blend of steak sauce, barbecue sauce, and whiskey. The cheesecake. OMG the cheesecake. Admittedly I had seriously low expectations from a lot of different, overrated cheesecakes that I’ve tried before. Theeee BEST cheesecake I’ve EVER had!!! 100% recommend. I only suggest making it known on OpenTable that you offer valet.
Thank you for the wonderful review and for choosing S&W for your Anniversary celebration.
This was our first time visiting after living her for almost a decade and it was well worth the wait. The staff were attentive but didn’t hover. And the food...... Let’s just say this was the first of a long relationship between us and Smith and Wollensky’s.
This place was phenomenal, from the service to the amazing food. Can't wait to go in the summer to dine outside.
We can't wait for Summer to see you again.... it just around the corner!!
Treated my baby brother for his 40th birthday. Valet parking was a blessing, servers were very accommodating, the view was spectacular 👌, nothing like a Dusable city marina view. Adult beverages were not watered down. The food was very good. I had the crusted Salmon. Yes l would definitely recommend Smith and Wollensky to family and friends. BTW the online reservations was quite simple.
Thank you for the delightful review and we are so happy you enjoyed the experience! We hope to serve you again soon.
I have been there twice. I wanted to impress my wife with the food, view and ambiance. We drove down from Naperville and it is totally different this time. For $250 bucks I should have received an over better experience. It was not classy and of high standards.
Thank you for your review and we will address your concern
Our server was phenomenal. Loved the food and the service.
Thank you for your review!! Hope to serve you again soon
The whole experience was very good, from the staff to the wonderful view. The food was very good, we shared a ribeye and a New York strip. Both steaks were cooked to perfection and were very good. We would for sure go back. What I won't say is this was the best steak I've ever had. Again, it was pretty darn good but I've had better.
Thanks so much for the very kind review
Everything was amazing. I was there celebrating a birthday and they made the experience feel so special. Loved it! Food and service was great!
We are so happy that we were able to make the night special for you both. Hope to see you again soon
The waiter did an amazing job, he was friendly and nice and treated us very well.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your dining experience and look forward to the opportunity to serve you again soon.
One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. As always, the food fantastic and top level of service, combined with the scenic view of the River. A definite must when visiting Chicago.....!
Thank you so much Gio. We appreciate the kindness of your review.
Novel, amazing food experience. First time here for us. Birthday celebration. Great views of cityscape while dining. Excellent service. Key lime martini was exquisite.
Amazing sunset. 6pm march...
We are so pleased you enjoyed the view.
As usual they delivered with excellent service and food. The ambience was excellent.
The restaurant week specials were exactly what we were looking for.
Highly recommend for any occasion or just a casual lunch/dinner experience.
Rick, We truly appreciate the lovely review and look forward to serving you in the near future.
Tomahawk steak was amazing our server was amazing great attitude great service over all great food definitely gonna be a regular.
Thank you so much for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the Tomahawk as we think its pretty special also.
Went here for a business dinner. Service was not the same as it was even though I had the same waiter. Food came out of order and was late. Wont return for a while.
Perfect! Nice place and excellent service.!
We love Wollensky’s. Love the food, love the ambience, love the service!
Food was excellent and service was excellent definitely will be going back
