Easily in the running for the best steak in Chicago. The outer crust was full of flavor and so tender it could melted in your mouth. The Alaskan crab mac and cheese is a must try!

Been there four times over the past two weeks- excellent service prior to tonight - dropped grease on my brand new shirt - server dropped food on linens and didn’t offer to change - took both our martinis prior to us finishing- made us feel like it was closing at 9 when it didn’t close until 10 - left a full martini behind when no offer of moving downstairs as there were several guests downstairs very disappointing- we will re-evaluate our spend moving forward - we were very very disappointed with our visit. Please call me to discuss further

Had a lovely birthday dinner at Steak 48 and would definitely return. Service was terrific; our waitress, Suzie, was knowledgeable about the menu, friendly, and made sure we felt well cared for during our visit while also not rushing us or intruding on conversation. Food was amazing and the atmosphere out on the patio was great on a warm summer night. Highly recommend.

My wife and I made reservation a few weeks back with the anticipation of a great dinner at a great restaurant for our 17th year anniversary. Everything about our experience was out of this world, food, drinks, atmosphere, service, etc. Our best dinner to date and cannot wait to tell others as well as return for another experience.

Thanks so much for making our weekend!!

Great food and service. They did say on the website that is was business casual but did see people dressed in T-shirt’s which I found inappropriate for the restaurant.

I just wanted to say I absolutely Loooooved out waitress, she was very informational and the food was amazing. And the manager Jeff was very nice and the other tall slim one. Also one of the managers If he was a manager did make a smart remark on my shoes because I had took them off because my feet was hurting but I brushed it off, but overall me and my friends really enjoyed ourselves and I would definitely recommend this place.

One of the best steak houses in Chicago! The steak arrived on a 500 degree plate that maintained a pleasant level of warmth for all items placed on the plate. Very nice!!

Steak 48 is a must if you are in downtown Chicago! Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious! One of the best meals I have had. Make sure you get the burrata and the king crab & avocado stack as appetizers. We had the filet and scallops for our entrees, both were amazing. The scallops were cooked perfectly. For dessert, we did the butter cake and red velvet bread pudding. HEAVEN.

Maybe is the answer!
We’ve traveled extensively and consider ourselves to be above the average diner!
We love steak!
Here’s what we thought of Steak 48:
Lighting - just way toooo dim!
Service - excellent! Thank You Troy!
Appetizer - Shishito peppers were wonderful
Bread - half great and half so bland!
Steaks - my petite filet was very satisfying
My husbands NY was lacking any flavor....he was disappointed, I was not!

I love the atmosphere of Steak48. So many great dishes to try and experience. The seafood plates are a great choice to start with or the wonderful wedge salad. The steaks are the main feature and should not be missed. The service friendly, excellent and delightful.

We live in Az. Always go to steak 44. So excited to try Steak 48 and see if it was as good as 44. I have to say Steak 48 was amazing, I think better in more ways then one. Steak perfectly cooked. Sides were delicious. Waiters suggestions on new things to try was probably the best meal I’ve had this year.. loved it.

Nice ambiance but the service was definitely sub par. Waitress didn’t take our order until 30 min after we sat down. Steaks were brought to the table 3 min after appetizers were served. We hadn’t even started the appetizers when the steaks arrived. We finished appetizers and we wanted the plates cleared so we could start our main course. Asked the waitress if she could clear the app plates and she made it seem like it was beneath her. She went and asked someone else (maybe a bus boy) to come clear our plates, so we had to wait another 5 min to start our meal. The steaks were average, but we were disappointed as we expected steaks from a high end steak place. The quality of the meat was similar to Outback Steakhouse. Overall, quite a disappointing experience for a high-end steak house. We won’t be back.

Everything was just absolutely melt in our mouths amazing yet again. Hands down the best restaurant in Chicago. After RPM, Swift Steak48 is our goto for any occasion or just the start of a great night. Highly recommend splitting the Butcher’s Cap alongside a couple of smaller entrees. I didn’t know steak could taste so incredible. Jacob is a truly fantastic server alongside an incredible staff. See you again in August.
