What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Maple & Ash sits in the middle of the Chicago steakhouse Venn diagram. It’s both new-school and old.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

The ambiance, service and food was delicious. The noise level was high making it difficult for those at end of booth to hear each other.

Beautiful ambiance, love the decor, we were greeted with complimentary drinks and appetizers. Our waiter was great and knowledgable, but seemed kind of busy throughout the night, didn't check in on us as often as we had hoped but that wasn't a big deal. Food was good; very flavorful and unique. Dessert was the only mediocre thing we had that night, it was the milli crepe and the flavors just didn't do it for our palate. I would definitely come back though, love the vibe!

We had the absolute best experience ever! Truly one of the best meals we’ve ever had, best service and best ambiance. I can’t recommend Maple & Ash enough. We did order medium filets and they might have been a littttle too pink for our liking but we still devoured them. Do yourself a favor and ask for the desert that’s not on the menu. Worth every penny! We will be back!

We were escorted to our table after having arrived on the third floor. The hostess gave us a table with a street view. A personalized menu for my wife's birthday was provided for her. Our server, Dario, took our drink and food order, after having explained different menu choices for us. His suggestions were perfect. Our food was superb. We each had filet steaks. They were excellent in both preparation and serving. Our side dishes of asparagus and onion rings were very tasty. We had a desert to finish our meal.

At no time did we feel rushed and enjoyed the entire meal. We most certainly will return soon!

The food was excellent, but the service was spotty. We were there to celebrate our anniversary, which I had marked on OpenTable and Maple and Ash even texted me asking for our names and what anniversary it was. I responded and was excited because I had seen the menus they make for guests. However, when we got there, we didn’t get any sort of special menu which was disappointing after the build up and also seeing other people around us with special menus to take home as mementos. Also, our waiter started out very attentive (honestly almost over-the-top attentive), but as we were nearing the end of our meal and waiting for a dessert menu/the check, we ended up waiting for our waiter to come for about 20 minutes. While the food was excellent, the experience overall wasn’t.

Maple and Ash has become our new favorite!! Even before we ordered, the CANDLES everywhere definitely set the mood for a wonderful night. The welcoming drinks and apps were greatly appreciated, and our waiter Jamie was wonderful. We had the shrimp cocktail, and 3 out of the 4 were wonderful. They were large, but the last one was tough. We also had the beet salad, and it was one of the best we've had. Our entrees were the bone-in filet and salmon. Both were delicious! We also had the Brussel sprouts and the au gratin potatoes (both were highly seasoned). The food was really good, and the candles and service put it at the top of our list.

Wife's 50th birthday dinner was also our first visit, so no pressure on them. I know it can be cliché to use the phrase "from the minute we walked in everything was perfect", but it's 100% accurate in describing our evening. We put ourselves in David's more than capable hands, and he ably guided us through the menu options until we had made our final decisions on our meal. The kitchen staff delivered time after time on every course. There were no flaws...none. If David was at another table, his support staff quietly and efficiently kept our glasses full, cocktails replenished and spent plates removed. A symphony of coordination. I can't say enough positive things about this organization, we will be back!

Great spot for date night/special occasion. Food was amazing and even though it may seem a bit pricey, portions were perfect and food was worth the price!

Delicious and scrumptious dinner with OUTSTANDING service. We started with the wedge salad which was fresh and refreshing. Then we had the roasted dover sole, a variety of steaks and chops, sides of asparagus, brussels sprouts, wood fired maitake mushrooms and creamed spinach. Then we finished with the flambe made table side. The best part of our meal was the service. David Prainito was superb - attentive, service oriented, and professional. He kept the drinks flowing, allowed us just enough time to carry on our conversations and made outstanding suggestions. We have visited many restaurants around the country as well as traveled around other countries and Prainito is the epitomy of class and professionalism. He made our dinner the best.
