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".

Special touches abound, such as the restaurant's global wine list, which is presented to the guest via an interactive iPad program.

I usually go every year for Valentine’s Day. This year, I was at a table that was so close to the table next to me, I could smell the other couples food, and could barely sit with my date at my own table due to lack of space. Our table wobbled so much me and my date had to take turns holding the table so we could take turns cutting our steak to eat. The food is usually superb, but the steaks were both dry. The 300 dollar meal I paid for, I’d expect a leisurely evening where I was pampered. What I got was a dry steak, pushy service to improve table turnaround, seated so close to the other table next to us that I had to watch my elbows as to not hit my neighbor, and an overall poor experience when I was expecting a rather special evening. I won’t be going back for any particular special occasion on my own accord in the future.

Four of my co-workers and I had an after work outing and we selected Chicago Cut. We had a great time at the restaurant. Our waiter, Sheldon, was great and the food was phenomenal (especially the Lobsterscargot). My wife and I love Chicago Cut and it has never disappointed us.

My boyfriend and I went here for our birthday weekend dinner, as our birthdays are a day apart. Chicago Cut Steakhouse was AMAZING. It has a classic steakhouse vibe but with a very modern atmosphere. The service was outstanding as my water glass would be refilled before it ever reached half empty. The wine list is digitized because they offer hundreds of incredible wines. We had the lobstercargot and it was beyond delicious. The steamed crab legs were also tasty, but our entrees were heavenly. I got an 8oz filet and it was perfection. My boyfriend got the “holy grail” prime rib and it was as big as the plate. Our server, Robert, surprised us with two yummy desserts with a birthday candle and it really finished off a perfect dining experience. I HIGHLY recommend Chicago Cut Steakhouse and will 100% be returning.

My grandson's graduation from the Great Lakes Naval Boot Camp culminated in our trip into downtown Chicago for a most delightful lunch at Chicago Cut. From the moment we entered, your service team was outstanding! Our waiter was one of the very best I have ever experienced in a fine restaurant! He was quite attentive and helpful when asked questions about the menu items and was there to refill waters and keep the table free of bread crumbs, etc. The food was absolutely delicious and to cap off our celebration, the General Manager sent over a selections of complimentary desserts to honor our Sailor! Thank you Chicago Cut for helping to make our day fabulous before sending our boy to his Naval career training destination in another state. Sincerely, Carol Wieser........Frisco, Texas

We flew in from Atlanta to come here for our weeding anniversary. We ABSOLUTELY enjoyed the service from our waitress. Thee absolutely best steak I have ever had! The ambiance was great looking out over the backdrop of the Chicago River. Me and my wife HIGHLY recommend this place. From the appetizers to the main course we truly enjoyed celebrating our wedding anniversary with your staff. They made us feel at home!

The location and service were great! The restaurant has floor to ceiling windows giving you a great view of the river. Our server, Sheldon was extremely nice, knowledgeable, and thoughtful throughout our meal.

Our disappointment was based solely on the food - it was so under seasoned and bland. I ordered the tuna, and the only aspect of meal to have any flavor was the au poivre sauce. My significant other ordered the lobster and steak, and had a similar reaction: bland. For the price, I definitely will not be going back.

This is the second time within two weeks I go where the food had to be sent back. I also ordered pea soup and was brought another soup. When I told a server I Ordered pea soup he said well you have butternut squash and never offered to bring the right soup that I actually ordered. Also the waiter never came to see how our food was so we were done with lunch by the time he checked back with us. The same thing happened last week with the same waiter. This is disappointing because I’ve been going to this restaurant for business lunches since they opened.

The filets were cooked perfectly and the service was outstanding. The tuna tartare was a great way to start dinner off. Solid wine list and great ambiance. Under $300 including tip - not too bad for a higher end steak restaurant.

Our waiter was a pro. Absolutely attentive when we needed him and not intrusive when we didn't. He genuinely seemed to want to make our evening as special as could be. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary so it was a big deal for us and he helped make it even more special. The only thing was that my husband's steak came out rare, according to the finely calibrated guide in the menu, instead of medium rare.

We had a rather bad time at Chicago Cut for our anniversary. First, I had asked for window seat and we ended up next to the kitchen. The service was really slow and the room noisy. Someone kept snatching the wine list from our table before we had a chance to look at it. Our starters were good, but my husband was disappointed with his steak. I liked my lamb chops, but couldn't eat them all. The staff was kind enough to cut them up for me as I had trouble with the knife. I asked to take the lamb chops home and a guy asked me if wanted all of it (meat and bones), I said "just pack the meat." When we got home I looked and it turned out I had a box of bones. How could make such a blunder? All that delicious meat wasted.
The did offer us chocolate cake for our anniversary, but we didn't want it.

You're paying for the location. There is better value with similar food elsewhere. I had one request for my daughter's birthday which was a window seat that was disregarded.

Been to Chicago Cut many times for business lunches, never for dinner. It's a standout for business lunch with fast efficient service. I find the place a bit noisy and they could spare a few tables as exiting can be a bit of a maze the tables are squeezed in so closely together. As for food and service, all very good -- I had the shrimp chili (one of a couple soups of the day)-- very tasty. I also had a lunch portion of the lobster salad which was also very good and generously tossed with lobster pieces and a yummy dressing. My colleague had, as usual, the skirt steak with onions which he is always very pleased with so it must be good. Service was readily available and on point. I recommend.
