Really enjoyed the hopping atmosphere and DJ playing music in the background. Stop in at the bar for a drink before or after your meal and just people watch. Our server, Danny, did a phenomenal job and even ensured our car would be ready when it was time for us to leave. The Wagyu Beef was delicious and a must try along with the Crispy Lobster Tails appetizer! The management, Jessy and Manny, stopped by to ensure our experience was top notch. Definitely go again!

billed as a hip new place with a djay, i must say that these folks are in over their heads. let's start with more than an hour wait for reservations that were made months in advance. we told the host stand that our party was all there at 810p. no one came over for 20 minutes. we reminded them we were still waiting at 830. they said 'sorry, the other party hasn't vacated their table yet, but they'll be leaving soon'. people in the business should understand that more time Must be built into reservation windows to accommodate this.. separately, if people are lingering, tell them you'll buy them a drink in the bar to accommodate the next dinner time. but not- this didn't happen. we went back to host stand at 845pm to ask what was going on...as we were doing this, several other people were equally upset because their tables weren't ready either. a 'manager' then said, 'don't worry, i'm working my magic and you'll be seated in 5 minutes'. this didn't happen either, so we had to go back and ask for a 4th time. they finally got around to seating us and offered apologies and a discount on the dinner.our server was actually very good (hugo), pleasant and listened. the meals were just okay- meager portions on the special of the day and other items...most of us left hungry. the whole djay thing was rather annoying with the music so loud, no one could even talk. this place seemed to cater to 20 somethings, rather than a broader age range...lots of stuffy people there too. on a positive note, the sparklers to help people celebrate special occasions was a nice touch. i can see where this place is a better fit in vegas vs chi. disappointing

Even though there's one in Miami, I decided to try STK Chicago as one of my friends is a chef there. So yes we had VIP service but the food speaks for itself. Walking in 10ish on a Friday night, we were surprised with the electric vibe at the bar. I thought I never left Miami despite being two degrees outside. Our reservations were honored and we were seated in a comfortable booth overlook the beautiful architecture. We devoured a few appetizers and steaks - all delicious. Our fave: brussels sprouts salad, scallops and tuna tartar. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Plus make sure to leave room for the dessert: "The Champagne Room" It's a chocolate sphere melted down to reveal an amazing mousse inside.

If you're looking for a fun, electric steakhouse experience, go to STK.

Great place for those who want to see and be seen. Brings all of the Vegas STK hotspot ambiance right here to Chicago and they execute it to perfection. Food is fantastic - maybe a bit pricey. It is very much a "hotspot" atmosphere so don't expect a quiet dinner. Bartenders are top notch, wine selections are good, and they have a great mix of seafood and meats to enjoy (try the grilled octopus on the apps! my favorite).

Where do i start?! We recently has a large group dinner there and the experience was horrible, from service to server attitudes. This place is pretty pricey and for that money, all i should hear is yes, how can i help you. The service is incredibly slow, like 30 minutes between courses; the staff had bad attitudes and challenged some of my guests, which is not appropriate and portion sizes were too small. Our group was served family-style for apps/desserts. For $125pp, everyone should have had their own salad and dessert. Guests went home still hungry!
I DO NOT recommend STK, Chicago has better options and people who will appreciate you business.
