This is one of my all time favorite restaurants in Chicago. It's outdoor cafe on the river is a unique perspective of Chi-town. The food is really good especially the steaks. But I like their drinks the best. The wait staff is wonderfully friendly and makes it hard not want to comeback even on those short trips. Reasonably priced.

This is a must stop for my visits to Chicago. This isn't just an excellent old-school wood & leather steak house, this is superior dining experience. If you like being treated like an old friend and a regular, even if you can only visit once or twice a year, this is the place for you. Given the high-touch service and prodigious memory of Boz and the other wait staff, you may be shocked to be recognized after only one or two visits. The calimari appitizer is a unique winner. Steaks are great. Outdoor patio on the river offers a great view. I frequently recommend this to people traveling in Chicago, and they always come away grateful for the experience.

You probably will have better service and food at an OUTBACK STEAK HOUSE.\r
Summer patio is nice BUT not worth the money or calories...\r

The salad and potatoes that come with your $30. (plus) petite filet (which was tasty at med. rare) were AWFUL. Plain iceberg (read white) lettuce-and overdone, fried, hard cottage potatoes - unedible. For that kind of price, where's the

Editorial from

This Italian steakhouse pairs meat with pasta creations and classics such as chicken Vesuvio and veal Parmigiano---often with success, or so suggests its longstanding clientele. But what we like more than anything is the fried ravioliā€¦
