Just returned from a dinner at Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse in Chicago. I would rate it marginal at best, nothing special at all. The prime rib was good but had to be returned because it was way undercooked. The filet was also returned

I've heard and seen reviews that raved about how good the food was. I was impressed also that they won awards in the past. But my experience was far from an experience I would rave about. The service was poor and slow and the food

This trendy chain does a great job with their menu. Expectations are high going into the restaurant where menu is pricey. Food is top notch, although pricey. Service is very good with staff not stuffy as you find in other local steak

Service is so-so, bloody marys are very good, steaks are not very good and overpriced. We ordered ours medium and they first came out rare. The steak sauce is excellent. The atmosphere was boring - not a good date place.
