Nice modern swanky restaurant. Very upscale with unique offerings for a steak house. Side of mushrooms was awesome with several types of mushrooms. Aged strip and on bone ribeye were delicious. The filet migon was underwhelming due to lack of flavor. They will serve steaks family style which allowed us to taste all the steaks More

Food was amazing! There was a minor error with my order, the owner quickly came by and apologized (multiple times), asked me if I wanted something else and he would comp the pizza due to a mistake. I was still hungry so I asked them to remake the pizza. That is what I call great customer service it’s the small things that most places don’t get right. He went above and beyond As we were leaving he apologized again, totally unnecessary but he did because he wants customers leaving happy, which I did and am a repeat customer. More

I feel like Mad Social is a hidden gem. It doesn't get the press of other West Loop restaurants but it always delivers. Their burger is fantastic--I always wonder why it doesn't make the best burger list of Chicago. In my opinion it's better than Au Cheval. I also like the mac 'n cheese, the brussell sprouts, the pillows, the duck buns, the tuna tacos, etc. More
