Steakhouse
Top tags:
  • Special Occasion
  • Good for a Date
  • Vibrant Bar Scene
STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Chicago is located in the heart of River North and, as anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options, and even wagyu and Kobe for the decadent dinners. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.

I had a wonderful time at STK here in Chicago. I’ve been several times but never for my birthday and the server Patricia was outstanding. I ordered dessert to go and they still brought out a scoop of ice cream and decorated plate. I’ll be back again very soon.

This place is hip and trendy with a live DJ spinning music throughout the evening. Our server Trinity was fantastic! One of our friends wasn't feeling very well and Trinity came to the rescue. Her order was cancelled or not put in due to her stomach issue. Overall great place, food was good and service was excellent!

Not impressed at all. Food is good, but not worth what they charge. The service was terrible, constantly having to ask for mise en place that should be seamless. I do not recommend this place if you want to have a conversation as it was overly noisy. One entree was 15 mins late to the table with no apology or explanation. Will not recommend to an enemy, nor will I come back.

Fabulous steaks, shrimp, and wine. The steaks were perfectly cooked medium and loved the Mac and cheese side item. The atmosphere is contemporary and the service was excellent. They also played great music. It is a special occasion place only, because it is very overpriced.

The Mac n cheese was the best I’ve ever had. The steak was amazing, a sauce wasn’t needed. Cooked exactly as ordered. Patricia was great. She answered all our questions and helped us choose what we would like best and also give a us a free dessert coupon for next time since we were too full to get it this time around. Overall, the best steak and Mac n cheese I’ve ever had.

Decent restaurant. Nothing special.
The old fashioned was fantastic. Beyond that fairly mediocre for the price. Steak was undercooked and the mashed potatoes were in a near liquid form.
Nothing terrible but there are several, much better options.

This restaurant is a self proclaimed, less stuffy steak house. They try to invoke a more casual feel by having a live DJ and service staff with loosely tied ties. At times this place felt a bit bro-ish like you are in the club but also getting a steak. The atmosphere is fun and lite, however the food didn't match the experience.

We started with the Lil' Brgs which were tasty. Apparently all STK restaurants serve these as they are a restaurant staple.

For dinner, we had the dry aged delmonico, and a waygu flatiron steak. The delmonico was bland and arrived overcooked. The flatiron was prepared perfectly, however, it too had little flavor and was on the tougher side for waygu (which probably explains why it was a cheaper option on their menu). All steaks come with two sauces, which makes sense since you need to add something to the meat if you want some flavor. Sorry, STK, but good steaks don't need any sauce.

For sides we tried the bacon mac-n-cheese and the creamy yukon potatoes. Both were good but nothing special.

We tried the hot cookie and ice cream for desert. Again it was good but nothing you couldn't get at your local Applebee's.

If you don't care about high quality food and enjoy a good fist pump while dining, this is the place to go. The service staff are great, however the food lacks for the price point.

Went to STK for a girlfriends' night out to continue celebrating our birthday weekend away in Chicago. STK did not disappoint. We were all very happy with our meals. Drinks were fantastic as well. Patricia, was adorable, very knowledgeable and upbeat. The service all around was excellent. We were thrilled to have her as our server. We would definitely recommend STK and go back again!

Food was good, environment was booby and pretentiously geared toward wealthy almost-seniors. Hodgepodge of trendy nightclub, sports bar and a place exploiting pathetic middle-aged men seeking extramarital affairs.

This was our first time at STK and I can assure you it won't be our last as it was my wives birthday and I wanted to take her someplace new for a change of pace. A good friend of mine had texted me a list of 30 restaurants a friend of her's had recommended to her when they first moved downtown from the burbs and STK was in the middle of the list. After taking my time and checking out all 30 spots online, I choose STK as I love a good steak, especially one with a cracked Peppercorn crust and knew they had great seafood as well and they didn't disappoint. I ordered the New York strip with peppercorn crust and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had in Chicago, Perfectly cooked to med rare and coated with cracked peppercorns. My wife had the Salmon and was equally impressed at how good it was.

Our friends had the Filet and Salmon as well and both were equally impressed and would go back any time. We split a few salads that were equally wonderful and finished off with the warm chocolate chip cookie with fudge and ice cream and it just melted in our mouths.

The only negative comment would be the bland boring bread that came out freshly baked and dripping with Blue Cheese sauce on top. It looked great in it's own pan, but looks are deceiving as despite the blue cheese sauce, the bread was essentially an old fashion Parker House roll with a soft crust and tasteless bland white bread on the inside.

We have been to MANY STKs... and we will NEVER return to this location. The food was HORRIBLE, and the server was the worst we have ever had. They did try to make it up AFTER our check was on the way.. but I would not ever recommend this location to anyone. We will be back to NYC over and over.
