It was a wonderful experience in the midst of the current coronavirus-caused difficult restaurant climate...
Outdoor dining at it's best - they're taking covid precautions seriously & I appreciate it!!!
Nice setting. Waiter seemed rushed or in a hurry. Food was not what I expected. I will give this spot a 4.5/10. The location right off the river walk is what made the night.
Always Great Food
Overall great place with a great view. Just a small thing which I don't like to be ready for an 18% tips automatically included in your check.
The food and service was excellent. We sat outside next to heat lamp and views of the river and city were outstanding
Used to be so much nicer. Food- bass was undercooked and cold. No apology from manager who just set my plate down and walked away. Waitress was nice and provided great service.
This restaurant was truly fantastic. The food and service was impeccable. We had a Tower, crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, fried lobster, steaks...loved all of it. They also accommodated me with a gluten/dairy free menu which is always nice for someone like me. Thank you for a great experience!
The food is always superb and the staff are super friendly and attentive. Always and excellent meal and experience.
The outside seating was amazing! The staff was friendly and helpful! I will say the food was amazing, however, the Mac And Cheese!
As a frequent business visitor to Chicago for the past 25+ years, the culinary in this town never fails to impress. The food & service at Smith & Wollensky Chicago is impeccable, as you would expect. But, what has always set this location apart is its location - right on the river, across from the winery, and near the famed areas of Upper Wacker and Michigan. We sat outside on a slightly cool (at least for a Florida resident) beautiful mid-September evening. The combination of food, service, and ambiance could not have been better. There are many great places in Chicago, but Smith & Wollensky's is/always has been a one to include on anyone recommendation list.
this place is such a chicago classic ! i can’t wait to come here again !
Love that the restaurant is next to the water. Watching all the boats while eating is very nice.
We arrived a few minutes early, but we. were seated within a few minutes. They gave us a nice table alongside the window overlooking the river. We watched speedboats,, yachts and kayaks going by every few minutes. We both had filets, rare. We split an S&W salad and a side of creamed corn manchego. The corn was excellent. The steaks, as always, were also excellent. This is one of our favorite dining spots in the city. We are never disappointed!
David our server was AMAZING! We were celebrating 2 birthdays and he brought 2 HUGE slices of cakes. Made them each feel special. He was funny and made us all feel great. Food was DELICIOUS as expected!
Beautiful view and impeccable service!
Service was great!! Will return again in the future
Thank you so much and we are pleased you enjoyed dining with us
Dinner was delicious. Everything about it was amazing.
Thank you so much and we hope to serve you again soon
We went for our anniversary. The host wished us a happy anniversary. Our server never mentioned it until we paid the bill. Not a place to go for a celebratory meal. Other than that the service and food were very good.
Great time on the patio!
Visiting Chicago and not visiting S&W is like not visiting at all. EVERYTHING on the menu is great! And the service is impeccable, don’t miss it.
It was nicr
Food was great but very pricey. Our waiter was great. Took a little over an hour to get our food. Service was slow. Restaurant was very loud. Dress code is non existent. Not a fine dining experience especially for the high prices. Would not recommend for date night.
I was disappointed in my server. If I'm not mistaken his name was Marlon. He seemed very busy with other tables & seemed to forget about us. We literally had to ask him for everything. He never offered a refill on any of the sodas we ordered. I had to ask for black pepper, a dessert menu, some of the sides we ordered were forgotten about and did not arrive with our dinner. My husband and I were entertaining guest from St. Croix & wanted them to enjoy a great dinner with a wonderful view. I think if you spend 700.00 on dinner we should at least get some satisfactory service.
The food was delicious and we had great customer service. It was such a delightful experience. The view was also great.
Smith and wollensky does not disappoint. We had a fabulous time for our anniversary and the service and food were both excellent. We were able to be seated overlooking the river and it truly was a special experience.
Gorgeous restaurant , great service, food was okay not blow your socks off. But device and ambiance was amazing
We had a great table overseeing the Chgo River. Food was tasty and delicious. Our server was not so great, we had other servers noticed that we needed another drink and when we were ready to leave.
I do apologize for the server issue - we will correct this going forward
Great place, ate outside on edge of river. Service was excellent!
We had a wonderful birthday celebration...quiet, with great cocktails and wine, and delicious food!
Our server was the best!
We will be back for sure!
From the greeting you at the front door upon your arrival to you being escorted to your seat, the Food & service’s was excellent
Fantastic experience overall! Food/drink and service were excellent - no complaints whatsoever. Wish we could have sat closer to the ledge on the outdoor patio for the sake of the river views, but we were still very pleased with our city views.
One the best T-Bone steaks in a very long time! Grilled bacon and angry shrimp are a must have. Thank you, Jen, for your attention to detail making this visit to S&W extra special.
My meat was greasy and salty--for $60, it was underwhelming. It was a birthday celebration so I did appreciate the dessert. We spent over $300 for a dinner for 2 and should have been very impressed and we were not.
This was our first time dining. We ordered the Tomahawk steak and creamed corn and Mac and cheese. Everything was delicious and the food was the perfect temperature. I had a lemon drop martini which was very good as well. The service was amazing. The only thing that surprised me and that I did not like was that gratuity was automatically included in my bill and it was only two of us. I always tip graciously and I was especially going to because the service was great. That was the only thing that rubbed me the wrong way. I would definitely visit again though because as I said the food was amazing and worth the pricing.
Great fun experience
The food the service the ambience it was The Total package!!!
Always great sitting on the patio in the summer watching the city and enjoying good food and wine. A bit pricey.
We were here for our anniversary and everything was phenomenal. From when we walked in until we were finished, our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. Will definitely come back here when we’re in town. Thank you for a great night!!
Our waitress Laura was amazing, helpful. She made our dinner extra special with her pleasant service and attention to our requests. The food tasted super delicious too.
