The food was amazing ... I had organic chicken with mush potato and my girlfriend had a steak with potato as well
The dessert was top of the line , I never had such a great dessert , so food was great

The atmosphere was good , great people great service although my girlfriend and I though that the music was too loud , we were seating right beside each other and we were not able to have a good conversation because of the music ... other than that everything else was great

We had reservations for dinner elsewhere, by the time we got here we were half ebilerated and really full. The hostesses were wonderful, our server not so much, the appetizers were great, the wine was okay but that was our fault ,we chose a cheap one in case we didn’t like the atmosphere we can easily go somewhere else, but boy were we proven wrong. Now we know our to go place. Next time will definitely try the steaks, and open up our options to the drinking list. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!

Brought my girlfriend for her birthday dinner her on a Saturday night. The food was great! Service was alright. We had reservations for 10:00 pm, as we arrived at 9:50 the table was not ready until 10:20. We made the mistake of making late reservations on a Saturday where the place turns almost into a nightclub. Music turned up and people dancing around even right beside me as I was eating. I was told that only on Saturday nights this happens so if you are not looking to "turn up" then do not go on a Saturday night.

I paid $120 for just a sub par lobster that said "market price" on the menu. This did not include sides..... Very over rated and pretentious place. Good for a few drinks but nothing else. I feel the server rippes me off on the bill to pocket monet or else this place is pure robbery. As a Yorkville resident I recommend Josos and Sotto Sotto. Dont waste your money here.

We were disappointed with our first and likely only dining experience at STK.
A restaurant at the caliber STK positions itself on fell far short of the mark.
Serving staff
•An introductory or refresher course on basic serving etiquette is needed
•Do not lean across the table and guests to reach for or place objects on the other side
•Take note of when to approach guests to garner feedback on the meal making sure not to ask how everything is just as the first bite of food has been bitten into
•Ensure guests do not sit at the end of the meal waiting more than 10 minutes with menus folded to either order dessert/additional drinks or to ask for the bill
•When a guest asks for the bill and advises credit card being held in hand is form of payment, bring the card payment device at the same time as the bill itself: it would have saved the 10 minutes we waited for the waitress to return
Food
•Tater tots were far too spiced to be served without being forewarned toppings used are not for the everyday pallet: we were unable to consume them
•Hashed potatoes with truffle oil and cheese were warm at best and appeared to have stood and cooled
•Our steaks themselves were well prepared and tasted as we anticipated a good steak would taste
Atmosphere
•While it is clearly outlined that a DJ will be providing service during the meal, the volume of the music increased to such a high level it was all but impossible to hold a conversation sitting across the table from one another.
•Dining guests were speaking at such a volume we were able to hear their conversation which they quickly realized apologized to us for having to communicate so loudly in order to be heard between them.
•Lowering lights and raising music volume is standard fare in many establishments but it should be done with some degree of common sense.
While we eagerly looked forward to a great dining experience at STK, we were thoroughly disappointed

Very nice design, but food was so so, foie gras was terrible and stake recommended by our waiter wasn't the best in my life. All food is overpriced and very average quality. I would say Barberian and Jacob's both are way better food. Never gonna go there again

Great service and ambience! Good variety in the menu. Very tasty tuna tartar. Ceviche was just ok, the taste was plain and too lemony.
Mainly I was disappointed with steaks, it was a bit tough and flavor didn't meet my expectations for the level of establishment...

We did not see the value in STK and would honestly prefer The Keg for half the price, twice the food and twice the quality. The steak was good, as you might expect, but not phenomenal for what you're paying (40-70 per steak, just for the steak ).

We were not blown away with the flavour or presentation of the other dishes either. The Crispy Brussel Sprouts came highly recommended by our server but were drowning in a sweet wine vinaigrette type of dressing - It was a sweet bowl of mush. We were keen on the Truffle Waffle Fries but were swayed by the server to order the Tator Tot Poutine instead, which came with cheese and some sort of cream mayonnaise on top. The Tator Tots felt as if someone bought McCains frozen tots, poured mayo cheese and cream on top of 6 of them and charged you $15...

We ordered 2 glasses of Malbec and were told that they were out of the Malbec by the glass... to me this sounds like they did not want to open another bottle when 2 glasses would likely cover the costs with markup.

We felt strongly as though our server was trying to increase the value of our meal instead of letting us order what we wanted. We were pushed to add shrimp or bacon on top of our steak for an additional ~$12. When we didn't bite we were told that the truffle butter was amazing and we had to get it, at $6 for a table spoon of it (as we learned). We told our waitress we were too full for desert but she proceeded to plead us to get something for our anniversary. When that didn't go well she suggested we buy shots... Not classy.

I'm not a complainer, and tend to take these things on the chin pretty well but I'm genuinely unimpressed overall. I can chalk some of the issues up to having the wrong waitress, but when in a restaurant with a reputation such as STK, I expect better hiring practices.

Ultimately, I am not likely to return and not likely to recommend, unless someone can convince me things have changed or that they had an entirely different experience.

Went here on a Saturday with one of my girls for a late birthday dinner. The vibe was great the staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. The scallops were my favorite. The crispy shrimp also delicious. We had the Caesar salad could use a bit more dressing. I liked the Mac and cheese I would say it can be shared between two people. We also had the delmonico steak. It has a lot of marbling so we found that we had to trim off some fat at times. Overall great restaurant definitely pricey so good for a special occasion. I will be going back. If you want a prime time reservation consider booking 3-4weeks in advance

We had some minor blips because it was a group of 18 but thankfully our waitress was amazing. Suzy our waitress was so professional and took care of everything she made sure that we had our tables and provided the best service. She also took the time to ensure the birthday boy and dessert was served perfectly. Thank you so much Suzy for making it the best birthday experience, I was impressed by her great service and attention to detail! I hope to have her as my waitress again!

STK has a very unique Yorkville meets LA scene (the kardashian version). The food was fine but you'll find better at similarly priced steakhouses around the city. This is a place to go and "be seen", if that's what you're into.

Everything was overall okay. The only thing that was disappointing is that it was TOO HOT in there. We asked if the AC was even on, and since we were the only ones "complaining" about how hot it was, nothing was done about it. We just had to deal with it but eating while sweating took away from the whole experience.
