GT Prime Steakhouse
What Insiders Are Saying
GT Prime feels your typical steakhouse in River North, but it serves a lot more than just steak. That’s why we like it.

Overall, I was tremendously disappointed with our GT Prime experience. The food was not bad, but literally every part of the experience was lacking. I would not recommend this to anyone, for more details read on.
Service/Food: Everyone in our section ended up getting the wrong orders at least once. the table next to us got the wrong order twice. We also got food so fast that we never got a chance to enjoy our cocktails, despite talking to the server (based on the advice of the table next to us) about wanting to slow our meal down and enjoy our courses. We ended up with plates arriving on top of other plates. When they brought me the wrong cut of meat and I sent it back the correct cut of meat wasn't cooked properly. I just ate it because at this point I didn't want to deal with it anymore. We didn't get any of the sauces that we ordered until we asked a second time for them, and the server never apologized or addressed it in anyway. In fact, once our food showed our server pretty much disappeared. The cooking of the steaks showed a lack of interest or knowledge in that they were either over cooked or dramatically under cooked, or actually the wrong cut. The french fries were soggy. The foie gras was lovely. The tomato salad was OK.
Seating: We were seated in a VERY intimate table where one of us was on a shared bench and the other was on a nice seat. This is normally fine except in this case the shared bench was worn and extra soft causing the person on the bench to be approximately 6 inches lower than the person in the chair. It made it hard to eat at the table. In addition the tables were so small and close together that we were basically eating with the two tables next to us.
We decided to not order anything for after dinner because our experience was so bad.
Outstanding food, excellent service. Our waiter even brought my husband a special birthday treat. We’ll be back!
Nice vibe in this place. The food is very good and the service is attentive.
The service was amazing from the moment we walked in until we left a couple hours later. So glad we chose to celebrate our 22nd anniversary here!
Great experience would recommend to anyone looking for a great steak. The everything grapefruit cocktail is with the trip.
We stopped in with a large group of twelve while working in the area. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The portions were very large, for a very reasonable price. Being surrounded by elegant decoration was fantastic. It was really a great dinner and I would most definitely go back.
They made it special
Sarah was so sweet
I wish she was our daughter!!
The food and ambiance was amazing. I have never tasted octopus that was that tender and delicious. The steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly and I loved the unique tomato salad. The service was excellent and it was the perfect modern Chicago experience that my husband and I were looking for.
Outstanding evening from start to finish! Food was exceptional, just what we were looking for. Modern steakhouse with a few twists of interesting and fabulous flavors!
Great food and drinks and great service!
Paid a visit to this place on my one year anniversary and I was not disappointed. It felt as if the whole restaurant knew of the special occasion and were very helpful with everything. Our server Ben was very knowledgeable on helping us select an old world wine and had an appropriate food pairing. We went a little later (9:30) and the place was not that busy but had a great vibe. Decor and lighting is on point. I actually still think about those brussels sprouts and procuitto- of course their steak is top notch. All in all great night and would not hesitate to come back.
It was a great experience from beginning to end. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional.
I have made reservations here a few times. I always get sat outside, but was sat inside. I requested an outside table and was told that there weren’t any available. I understand being “full”. I saw a table get cleared off around 6:15pm. It sat empty for about 20 minutes, so I asked if we could sit at the empty table. The hostess saw the table and said that it was reserved for a reservation at 6pm. She said it’s probably a no-show and she will ask her manager. No one had updated us and then proceeded to give the table away to 2 individuals who were sitting at the bar till 7pm when my reservation was at 6pm.
Having been her a few times I have noticed that the servers go missing for long periods of time. I had to ask a manager to find our server because our drinks were gone or about 15 minutes and we wanted the check. Our drinks were always empty before we had been asked if we wanted another.
Service was terrible.
Waiter was horrible. He argued about that we ordered one appetizer instead of two which he forgot to order anyways.
The G & Tea is delicious, gimmicky, and really fun! My companions ordered different beef steaks, and they were, well, steaks. However, I ordered the bison steak and it was out of this world. The best bison I've ever had!! Service was excellent. It's a steak house, so it's not cheap. The only disappointment was the $23 rye manhattan. For that price, should have been twice the size.
Great food. Wonderful service. Had some unusual appetizers that were recommended because the ingredients were in season. Delicious ! Steak came exactly as ordered. I had the salmon which just melted in my mouth. Very relaxing and enjoyable dinner. Perfect place to celebrate our son's graduation !
The staff was amazing. It was our anniversary, they made us feel special. We really appreciated the service. The food was great, and we had an amazing night. Thanks for everything
Have been a few times to GT, excellent cocktails and service...this time however, the food was very disappointing. We ordered the ribeye which is my go to and usually a winner, but it was chewy, not cooked to our request and not very tasty.
The Maitre D was brilliant and apologetic and also didn’t charge us for the meat element of our meal.
I think we won’t be rushing back any time soon though...
Everything was great. The only complaint is with the smell of smoke in the restaurant from the wood burning grill. My clothes smelled of smoke and had to go to the cleaners.
Amazing food and service!
We thoroughly enjoyed it!! And will be back!
This place is great. Always try to find a reason to visit whenever I’m in Chicago
I celebrated my first month dating my girlfriend and it was a beautiful experience.
Johnny was awesome. Food...de-lish
Johnny the server was incredible and memorable.
All are selection were five stars.
3rf time here and never a bad meal.
It was our anniversary and we started with a menu that said “Happy Anniversary”- nice touch! Then our very friendly waiter also wish us the same greeting. This immediately set us at ease to enjoy our dining experience.
And the food- outstanding from the salads to the steak and chops.
Wonderful evening in a lovely setting.
I was very disappointed by the preparation of my steak. The other elements of my meal were very good but my steak and my table mate's steak were overcooked. I also think the dining experience could be slowed down a bit to give patrons a chance to relax.
Great flavors and an assortment of quality beers from around the world
My first time at GT Prime. There were three of us. We ordered a variety of salads, sides and steaks. All of them were outstanding except, oddly, the steaks. There was sooooo much fat on the ribeyes, about 1/3 of it was wasted. The filet was cooked to perfection but it was difficult to even cut. The decor at this restaurant was just stunning. Loved everything about the vibe here.
Great food, great service. Our server Aaron was perfect!
I really wanted to love GT Prime and mostly did. The ambience was great, with a really nice interior. The service was very friendly and attentive. The appetizer was creative and fantastic. But the steak, the main event, was over cooked and under seasoned. I ordered a 12 oz bone-in filet medium rare but received it closer to medium well. My wife’s 8 oz filet was ordered medium but delivered medium rare with more appropriate seasoning. Too expensive for an overdone steak...
