We enjoyed every moment and every bite of our evening at Steadfast! Our server, John, was friendly and attentive, and very knowledgeable about the entire menu. Our water glasses were continuously refilled, and plates and silverware refreshed after every course. The food was outstanding: deliciously complex flavors and textures from appetizer through dessert. The wine list was also excellent. We will definitely return here next time we are in Chicago!

I love the ambiance of this place, it's got an old, rustic, antique vibe and the food is really good too. High quality fresh ingredients and taste. I think it's ideal for getting food and drinks with friends or conducting business lunches.I definitely would come back again!

The service was exceptional, friendly and helpful. And, when I had left my CC behind, they even phoned me (they would have had to look up the Open Table reservation to find my phone number!), saving me from a disaster. We found the duck a bit underdone, and the peach sorbet didn't taste much of peach, but otherwise the food was excellent and really interesting. Loved the foie gras PB&J concoction!

Unfortunately, the host did not record that we showed up for our open table reservation. We have a receipt for our meal today. We take a lot of pride in never not showing for a reservation without a proper cancellation. Please get in touch with them and see we get our points. Thank you..Nina Vanderpoel

Steadfast is a gem in the Loop for fine cuisine. Everything is well thought out, like the cilantro microgreens that adorn the tortilla soup . . . (everything, except the mortifyingly under-imaginative bar pours). Steadfast is a good alternative to 312, especially now that Trattoria No. 10 has ceased lunch service.

The food was mostly good, with one surprising exception -- an improperly cooked hard-boiled egg. Messing up something as simple as this is a bit of a red flag for me.

I've read the mixed reviews, and I'm afraid I fall more on the negative side. We were there on a Wednesday night, and there were very few in the restaurant, but I constantly had to ask our server to repeat himself. It was really loud!

My friend and I tried the tasting menu. Of the seven courses, I enjoyed three - the wedge salad, the goat cheese ravioli and the dessert. The wedge is an unusual presentation but tasty, and I regretted not just having the ravioli as a main course. The PB&J course of pound cake, foie gras and some fruit coulis was just odd. More savory with an odd sweet, not a good balance. I had the strip steak - it was presented nicely, but it needed more seasoning and was dry. Offhand, I can't remember the other course. I expect I shoved it around on the plate. A bit of a disappointment.

The noise level was distracting at times. The decor was nice. The steak and chili side was great. My wifes salmon dish seemed to be too greasy or "buttery" and not cooked throughout.
The dish was discounted by managment, but there was no time to reorder before our next appointment.
The service was great, but I'm not in a good place to reccomend to others. Your experiance might be perfect.
