"Wildwood is consistently great. We had Rachel, who I would say is the best server in the restaurant. One steak had to be sent back because it was undercooked. Other than that, it was perfect."

"We were there on business. Overall, it was a very good experience. The server was very competent, but seemed a little overwhelmed with tables. The service was a bit too slow. The food was great, and that is always the case."

Chicago Cut Steakhouse redefines Chicago's steak-centric dining scene with signature USDA-certified prime beef, which is hand cut and dry aged on site. A variety of made-to-order cuts are joined by eight different fish options, shellfish, chops, an array of hearty side dishes and more on the extensive dinner menu. The restaurant also serves the city's best "power breakfast," as well as a dynamic lunch service featuring carving stations in the bar area with prime rib, ham and turkey. Chicago Cut's expansive surroundings feature a lively bar area framed by dramatic wine display cases; vibrant red velvet banquettes and spacious dining tables; and sweeping views of the Chicago River. A sprawling outdoor patio lining the riverside attracts diners throughout the day and well into the evening. Special touches abound, such as the restaurant's global wine list, which is presented to the guest via an interactive iPad program.

"Beautiful restaurant, host staff not overly welcoming, efficient server although not overly friendly. The lobster bisque was probably the best I have ever had in my life. The food came out quickly and was cooked perfectly. The plate that my steak was served on was so hot that I think it actually continued to cook the steak after it was delivered to my table - not necessary. This was a business dinner, where the conversation was critical. The music from the bar was so loud that we could hardly hear each other. That was very unfortunate. I wish that the music could be better contained in the bar for the people that came for it. I might come back with friends, but not for a business purpose."

"A nice visit overall. While my steak was slightly undercooked, the rest of the meal was good. The thing that made our visit stand out was the outstanding service from server Tim. Most surprising to me was the lack of a comped dessert while the server and manager knew it was our anniversary."

"I took my daughter to the restaurant and had never been there before. The experience exceeded my expectations. The food was fantastic, the prices reasonable, and the service was good. The restaurant was smaller than I expected, but nice. I would definately go back."
