Excellent service, food, & wine. I miss the caviar service they had in the past, though.

The Duck is a must have! Staff is incredibly well-studied on the menu and ready to make recommendations that aren’t just careless up-sells. Fantastic food and a lovely way to spend your time if you find yourself downtown.

Only a couple blocks away from the Christkindlemarket (seasonal recommendation) if you’re looking for a place to grab a bite after being warmed up by some cider and mulled wine!

I met a friend for lunch on 11/22. We both ordered the exact same thing. After waiting a considerable amount of time, the waitress brought us food, but it belonged to the couple sitting next to us, who had arrived long after we did. It wasn’t until then that the waitress realized our order had been forgotten. Fortunately, we didn’t have tight time constraints. The food finally arrived - the cheeseburger and side salad were amazing. At no time did a manager come to our table to apologize and no one offered us a complimentary drink or dessert. When the bill arrived, we were charged the full amount. Maybe we should have escalated the situation ourselves, but really shouldn’t have had to.

My only complaint is that the waiter brought us more appetizers than necessary for the number of people - hence inflating the bill and wasting food. My fault for leaving it up to him but I hate feeling like I was taken advantage of.

My favorite restaurant in the US and I travel a lot. The same servers for the past couple of years so it is nice that they recognize me. Stay at The Gray...eat at Steadfast (the Pork Shank is to die for).

Exquisitely delicious food, wonderful service, and a darkly elegant dining room with understated good design! We ordered the breads, wild mushroom blanquette, salmon amandine, pork shank, and trio of sorbet, and enjoyed them all. The complimentary pre-dessert of pear sorbet was a lovely surprise, as was the post-dessert of 4 little pastries/candies served in a cacao pod.

Everything was great flavor but both of us asked for eggs over medium and they were a little over cooked. Great flavor though.

There was a napkin / Clorox whip type cloth in our salad. Before that came out. It took 40 min for our food to come out.

Worst brunch spot in Chicago by a mile.

A little disappointed- we hope for their chef tasting menu and they were changing seasons so it wasn’t available. Menu different than on website. Served draft Urquell in a small water glass instead of a Pilsner glass. Bread course was intriguing and good (although the flavored butters tasted like they were made with margarine) . Clams casino was tasty. Ambiance is lovely - expected to have an amazing farm to table dinner experience - but went somewhere else for our entree. .

Absolutely loved Steadfast. Beautiful room, good for conversation, great old fashion. The octopus appetizer was delicious. The roast pork lovely. I asked for extra vegetables and was offered roasted Brussels sprouts which were very good and nice with the pork. Our server was delightful and efficient. I wish I could remember her name.

Presentation of the charcuterie was wonderful, and its consumption delicious. The pork chops divine, with the sparkling Rose added to a superb pairing for the meal overall. Excellent to the attentive service and ambience.

Service, ambiance, food, and drinks were excellent. The amount of food and price were extremely small, I ordered the NY Strip entree and it was more like an appetizer, for the price being paid I would have thought it would have been a larger portion.

Go for good albeit overly fancy food. Keep in mind if you go for a biz meal it’s conversation, it is very loud in the space.

Our reservation was for 10, and they were able to seat us early at 9:50. Breakfast for 4 people did not get to our table until 10:45. Eggs and bacon. My English muffin was less than 2” in diameter and it was hard. My friend’s over easy eggs came as sunny side up and the whites were raw. Orange juice was room temperature. The waiter was rude when we asked him to take the raw eggs back. The cooked eggs finally came to the table after 11:00, and one was missing. It was a horrible breakfast. I would not recommend and I will not return.

It was really wonderful. Refined and peaceful, and also delicious. Also, surprisingly less expensive than I’d expected, given the level of refinement. This is my new go to place downtown.
