great meal in a superb restaurant, good service and definitely worth a visit if you're looking for 'that little thing more'. Don't go if you don't have the time to enjoy and savour the excellent food and drinks they serve.

I live less than two blocks from the firehouse, which actually caught (or was set on fire) about 3 years ago. We took our son and his wife there for her birthday. We had a reservation that did not seem to be important to the...More

My wife and I had a wonderful early dinner there recently. My wife said it was the best steak she's had in a very long time. The service was outstanding, the food even better. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. I enjoyed the soup of the day which was a corn chowder with a nice bit of heat to it. The seafood tower was amazing according to my husband. The 8 oz petite filet was perfectly cooked...More

Chicago has some of the best steakhouses anywhere. This steakhouse, close to McCormack Center, is just not up to the standards of the very good ones. I wouldn't rush to eat there. The prices of this restaurant make you want a great steak, not an...More

This place is beautiful! We went with a fairly large group, but we had excellent service, the food was fresh and delicious, and it didn't take long. They have an excellent selection of menu items. All the sides are extra and are large enough to...More

Restaurant recommended by a friend, good food and a sober and pleasant environment. We started with onion soup, the main dish was a rib eye dry aged, that came as requested (rare) but cold, accompanied by pure Robuchon smashed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. Good food...More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park
