Steakhouse
STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Chicago is located in the heart of River North and, as anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options, and even wagyu and Kobe for the decadent dinners. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.

Great deals for happy hour, however, waited a while for not only water, drinks, and food, but even to be greeted. And there were only two other tables. It looked as if there was one person doing it all...

We went to STK as an impromptu for dinner. I’d stopped going there because of my previous experience. Decided to give it another try since the person that was with me had never been before. I ordered crab leg special, she ordered a braised beef, and we shared the lobster Mac. What you get for crab legs for $66 was two thumbs down for sure. It was very disappointing. Our lobster Mac had to be returned because there was no lobster in the mac & cheese like it used to be previous times. Because of those two incidents my friend who’s braise beef was very dry decided she was not going to complain and suck it up. I am not the type of person to complain, but this food experience was awful. I know cause of COVID there may be excuses why the food was not up to par. However coming in from Wisconsin with someone who has never been before I had expected better.

The food was terrible! We had burgers, Mac& cheese, calamari, fries and a few other things that I can’t remember right now. I received a refund for the majority of my order because it was so so bad. I would not recommend at all. It’s a really nice place though so it was very disappointing when the food turned out to be bad.

NEVER AGAIN! hugely overpriced! $500 (with mandatory 20% tip BTW) for a bottle of champagne ($160), bone-in filet with crab ($100), a veggie entree that was oily and poorly prepared ($50), (2) chimichurri sauces $5/each!), asparagus ($20), bottled water ($10) and another side. they nickeled and dimed for every single thing, including sauces to go with our food! felt like we were eating in a dance club with the dj playing consistent hip hop and R&B music so loud!?! the decor (chairs) are worn down and table didn’t have upscale settings for the prices they charge. i rarely give bad reviews as it’s just not my thing but this place is terrible with it’s “urban” vibe. they definitely attract a certain crowd that just isn’t our vibe. we dine out a lot at high-end places and this was a huge disappointment and rip-off. spend your money at RPM STEAK, STEAK48 or CHICAGO CUT for better quality, better ambiance and you’ll get what you pay for = TOP QUALITY, FOOD, DECOR & SERVICE.

The customer service was horrible. The front desk lady was rude and so was the manager. I forgot my mask in my car and the front desk lady told me mask is mandatory so I asked her to give me one because the valet took away my car. She said mask is mandatory but we don’t provide it. Even the littlest cafes are nice and provide masks but this lady rudely told me to walk two blocks to a 7-eleven but one and come back. When I explained it to a manger he was apathetic and didn’t even offer an apology. I drove all the way to Cleveland but I didn’t feel like eating because of bad customer service. I will never go back.

Very poor service. Took 20 minutes to get water. Old drink glasses were left on table. Waiter came every 20 minutes to check on us. Hot plates were left on the end of our table for us to move

The food was very expensive for its horrible taste. The chicken was tough and hard to get apart. The side, separate toppings were expensive and it was only a spoon full. A 6oz cup of lemonade was $6 plus taxes with no refills. I could go on for days. On top of it all the waitress was very impolite.

From the atmosphere to the service to the food this was a great experience. The restaurant is taking into account everything with the pandemic and eating here felt very safe (spaced out tables, masks and gloves worn by staff, masks by patrons when up from the table). While it was early on a Tuesday night the amount of tables picked up as the night went on and a very lively atmosphere was felt. The music playlist was great (all 80s) this evening and the amazing sound system helped to bring life to the spacious room while not seeming overbearing. Conversation was easily had with fellow diners. Both steaks ordered were excellent and cooked to expectation. Overall a great dining experience and one I look forward to coming back to.

We were in town for 3 days and stayed at the Kinzie hotel, (across the street).
I made reservations for 3pm ,(happy hour).
This was a great decision. The food was great, our server was kind, informative, and considerate. It was a little slow with the COVID-19 situation, but we really enjoyed everything.
FYI.....This is a great way to save money and have a lot of options to try out somewhere new.
Don't miss this delightful spot.

I have been to several different STK around the US and one in Canada several times. I think overall the chain has lost its sparkle for me, but STK Chicago has probably done it in for me for good. Food is always pricey but the steak we were given was small, service was average at best and when we left, the two hostess's at the front desk couldn't even conjure up at simple, "good bye, thanks for coming, good night" zero! They both just looked blankly at us as we left. Not worth the money anymore.

I took my wife here for our 16 year wedding anniversary and everything was outstanding. The staff was wonderful and the DJ played a nice selection of music. The calamari was very good, the cowgirl ribeye was cooked and seasoned perfectly, especially with the truffle butter on top. The Lobster Mac and cheese and creamy spinach was also perfect. Drinks was a nice size and also tasted good. I will be coming back SOON and anyone thinking about going SHOULD go and enjoy the experience.

Dish names so fancy you’d think Chef Ramsey named them,
when the plates arrived, food didn’t look nor taste anything close to fancy or so extraordinary tasty, in other words inflated prices on food that don’t match the service or quality of food.
Basic level, the interior ceiling design is the only nice part about the place.
