Had to request bread and got an attitude for asking. Bread was cold ( last time I came here it was served warm and was great, but was literally cold this time). I had the halfback filet (8 Oz) and it came out cold. The floor was a mess. Bathroom had no paper towels to dry hands. Hostess put me down as a no-show on Open Table and it took ten mins to get that straightened out. Ditkas does not care about its customers. Go to one of the other 20 steakhouses within walking distance.

Wonderful service (Neil was our server) and excellent food . We were seated right on time in a wonderful room with Packer and Bear sports pictures (We're from Milwaukee) . I had the double pork chop and my wife had the scallops with crab risotto........both were fabulous . It was a memorable evening !!

One of my favorite places to eat in the country. Good thing I don't live closer or I'd be spending a lot more time at Ditka's place. Do yourself a favor and order the meatloaf special for dinner and the chocolate cake for dessert. You'll thank me later!

Not as good as past visits. Seafood tower was subpar and they forgot the oysters. Given $6 “credit” for this. Ended up costing as much as dinner at Babette’s from the night before with no comparison in food or atmosphere.

Worth going if John is singing (he wasn’t this weekend), but for the price consider your options. Food was okay but not spectacular.

Honestly, the worst salmon I have ever had. The service was great considering it was St. Patrick’s Day weekend. They were stressed out, but they definitely rose to the occasion and delivered under the circumstances. That doesn’t excuse the salmon or calamari which tasted like it came from the frozen food section of the local grocer.

We Requested a booth in the back of the restaurant so we weren’t in the midst of traffic and business and we
Were seated in the downstairs bar area which was exceptionally loud. Waiter and staff were amazing and very attentive and the food delicious

A little bigger and more asparagus and an expedited plate (balsamic reduction, etc.) on the filet Oscar would be great.

If you can get past the sports paraphernalia, and you should, the food is very good. Had the prime rib, which was excellent. Cocktails were overflowing. The waiters had smiles on their faces. All round good time.

I must say I was disappointed with Ditka's Chicago location, The Sunday dinner menu options were good and the food tasted great, but the service was not up to par. Dessert came with the special and the server seemed unaware of the menu. Our desserts took about 20 minutes to come out and we had to request them from two different servers. The decor appeared to be old and in need of an update. The bathrooms were inconveniently located upstairs and down a hallway past a banquet area. Pricey for the lack of service and ambiance.

Our waiter, Carlos, was fantastic. He was friendly and did not rush us and answered all the questions we had about all the choices.
We had salmon, pork chops, perch and ahi. All the meals were excellent. We did not have desert, (not for any other reason than we did not want to alter the taste of our dinners).
We have frequented Ditka’s and try to eat there when we are in town.
