"This was a pricey steak house, but worth it. They take meat very seriously. Service was efficient and helpful. Good choice of wines. Our table in the second floor dining room had a lovely view of the old Medina Temple building (now Bloomingdales). They offered a three course menu option (salad, small filet, dessert) that seemed very reasonable at about $45.00. We would go back. Upstairs and downstairs bars seemed lively and inviting."

Located in Chicago's famous "Gold Coast," McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks on Chestnut / Rush Street is close to shopping, hotels, bars, the famous Chicago Water Tower and the Magnificent Mile. It is the ideal location to spend an evening out on the town of Chicago.

"Our party of four had a disappointing experience. Food was really quite good, but service was erratic (at times annoying). Tables were too close together. (There were some cozy-looking booths, but we weren't lucky enough to get one of those.) Our table quickly became awkwardly crowded with over-sized menus and tableware that was not efficiently removed when no longer needed. Overall effect was touristy and disorganized. Because of the food (seafood was fresh and tastily prepared), I would probably give it one more try, but not on a Saturday night."

Patterned after a wine cellar with tucked away booths, this unique restaurant places diners amongst saltwater fish tanks to dine on traditional Italian steak and seafood dishes with a Northern Italian flair. House favorites include pasta staples like the tortellini tre formaggi-a three cheese filled pasta with fresh cherry tomato garlic basil sauce-and the lasagna al forno which combines pasta layers with meat filling, cream sauce and parmesan cheese. House specialities include manicotti with fresh tomato sauce, flown in fresh Dover sole filleted tableside, shrimp casaligna and spaghetti mare Monti. Steaks and chops are hand cut to order and include our famous "Cantina" Rib eye, 16 0unce T-bone and pork chops vesuvio. La Cantina is perfect for power lunches, theatre dining and famous Chicago steaks. The wine bar is the perfect setting for a romantic date or private deal making. With nods from Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast La Cantina has the largest wine cellar in the Midwest.

"I had the lamb shank with risotto and it was truly one of the best dinners I've ever had. My partner had the salmon special and said it was very good. Service was friendly and helpful. The fish swimming in tanks add a unique touch to the ambiance."
