What Insiders Are Saying
We wanted to hate it, but we can’t. RPM Steak can hang with the Chicago steakhouse classics any day.
RPM Steak has a classy, modern, urban vibe. The service was stellar: right away we were greeted by our server and given a detailed overview of the menu and nightly specials, including helpful hints ("If you fancy an old-fashioned, ours are the best" and "Since there are only two of you, I could get you a half-portion of our delicious seafood platter"). As a former server, I was impressed by the teamwork of the staff. While our waiter certainly was attentive, asking if we needed another round of drinks or if he could get us anything else, if he was attending to other tables, someone else would politely refill our waters or bring us our drinks from the bar, so we never wanted for anything for any significant amount of time. As for the food, my tastebuds will be tantalizingly haunted by the Thick-Cut Bacon with vanilla bean and bourbon glaze--I think my eyes rolled back in my head with every bite. My husband and I enjoyed the Parker House Rolls made even more delicious with the Rosemary Nordic Butter (must try to figure out how to recreate that magic at home) and split the Dry Aged-Steakburger. At our server's request, we had the kitchen split the burger for us ("You'll get more fries that way," Ray assured us. And he was so right; we took our leftovers home, packed neatly in to-go boxes and placed in a handled bag for easy carry-out.) The final icing on this wonderful experience was the generous portion of cotton candy floss (berry-flavored on this night) delivered with our bill in addition to a complimentary serving of melt-in-your-mouth donuts with a custard dipping sauce. If we lived closer, we would be regulars!
The food was good but not spectacular. Service was great. Ambiance just OK. Wine was quiet expensive. Overall, we had a great dinner but the price was so high that I would not go back. Not worth it.
First time eating at RPM Steak and everything was excellent. We all ordered the brazino fish and it was very tasty and the sides were amazing. I highly recommend the sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts for sides. This was for lunch so I can't wait to go back and try dinner. Excellent service also!
Best meal I’ve ever had
Loved the snow beef, cotton candy and 14k Gold Cake!
Our waiter, David was absolutely fantastic. Extremely accommodating, friendly and all waiters should take notes from him. He made our weekend! From the service to drinks to appetizers to main course to desserts, everything exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back to RPM.
One of the best meals I’ve had. Awesome steak, great wine list. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable staff. Thanks Alex!
Food was great and service was amazing. The only down side was the wait, but they gave us a free appetizer for waiting : )
Wow. What an experience. From exceptional service (thank you to our waiter, Kim!) to unbelievably delicious food, drink and dessert, RPM Steak is an absolute gem. Yes, this restaurant is on the higher priced end of the LEYE spectrum, but ultimately the items on the menu (such as the delicious waygu beef choices) are price comparable to non LEYE fine dining steakhouses. The LEYE group know how to serve up a fantastic experience, no matter which of their restaurants you choose to dine at. RPM also has a separate gluten free menu from which I ordered. Go treat yourselves and have a great time!
Wonderful experience. I usually stick to salmon but this time I decided to try something new and ordered the black cod, great decision. Light and flavorful. The Japanese sweet potatoes were awesome as well.
Liked the original RPM and wanted to try this. The chef went above and beyond for my allergies. Was amazing!! And server was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Would eat again in a heartbeat!
Best waiter in Chicago!!! He knew it was our anniversary and he surprised us a few times with some treats and champagne
We split the cowboy aged steak. It was not very marbled. It was a bit chewy. And the flavor was not as robust as we expected. The sides were quite nice. The service was excellent.
We celebrated a competition day and we had the best meal we have had in a few weeks. This wasn’t our first time at RPM!
The service was excellent and the food was even better!
Wonderful from start to finish! A perfect place to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding!
Celebrated a birthday and it was super fun!
It was perfect as always
Hands down the best meal we had during our stay in Chicago. Had the ribeye filet (center cut ribeye). It was as tender as a filet, awesome crust. My wife always gets filets and she loved this ribeye ...simply excellent. Sides were just as good. Had the flash fried brussel sprouts and the blue cheese whipped potatoes. The Brie appetizer was stellar. Can’t say enough about this place.
We had the 42oz Tomahawk. Amazing, and more than enough for 2 persons. The baked Alaska desert was the perfect finish. Hugh’s service was impeccable and charming. Great experience.
Everything was great and food was delicious. We celebrated my birthday 🎂 and went there for wagyu steak 🥩 that was satisfying. We had reservation so was not sure what happed there. Only thing was they sat by the end of the bar instead of the main dining area. Which I did not understand or maybe I clicked something in the reservations to state that. We did ask to be move because we did not want Kelly our server to think it was her service that we did not like it was just the location. We witness the busy bar and over heard chit chats of everyone by the bar.
Overall food was great and service just location where we were seated was the problem.
One of the BEST experiences we’ve ever had! This place gets it! They are spot on with everything! Food excellent! Wine fantastic! Server - quite possibly the best ever! If you’re going there, request Scott - he’s amazing! Thanks for great experience!!!
Food was amazing, everything was absolutely delicious
Cotton Candy dessert was a fun touch at the end of the meal!
RPM Steak, like it’s Italian sister, is exemplary. The service, food and ambiance are all pitch perfect. Never had a less than stellar experience there.
Anthony was a superb server! Thoroughly enjoyed him!
The staff and service was impeccable. The food was excellent from appetizers to dessert. They made my birthday experience grand!
Our host was excellent and the food was well served.
The ambiance and service lived up to my expectations, but the steak surpassed it. We had the wagyu tomahawk! It was 42 ounces of melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. The steak was superb!
We had a phenomenal experience at RPM Steak! The food was flavorful and delicious. Anthony, our server, made great recommendations for drinks, entrees, and desserts. Thank you Anthony!!
Tbus was our first time going to RPM Steak. We had a reservation that qas given away to someome else and waited 35 minutes to be seated. Then no one came to even get a drink order for another 20 minutes after being seated. We ended up ordering our dinner at the same time we ordered our drinks. We got ourfood first and drinks about 10 minutes after food arrived. Part of our food order was incorrect, although it was fixed pretty quickly and we wernt charged for that part of our meal. Overall though, I wouldnt recommend RPM Steak to anyone, service was not good at all. We will stick to one of the other nice steak houses.
Super cute and phenomenal steak! My husband and I are big steak eaters and the Imperial Wagyu was by far one of the best steaks we have ever had. We paired these with some Brussel sprouts and asparagus which were also fantastic and ended with some very moist carrot cake.
My boyfriend and I shared everything and it was unbelievable!
RPM was one of the best steak houses I had ever been to. It was a great birthday experience and I will definitely be coming back the next time I am in Chicago.
This is our second time there together and once again it was amazing. Our server was unbelievable, the food was delicious, and overall it was a wonderful evening.
Very tall large man waiter was extremely rushed and didn’t take his time with us I felt more like I was buying a car than being serviced.
Great food and service,
