What Insiders Are Saying
We wanted to hate it, but we can’t. RPM Steak can hang with the Chicago steakhouse classics any day.
A spot that we love to visit when we are in the city. Staff is incredibly knowledgeable, food is great and always a great environment.
Our server was not what we would expect from this establishment. We both had steak - no one inquired if they were cooked properly (mine was overdone). Servers around us were always visible on the floor, ours was not. Servers around us gave menu suggestions and toured the menu, ours did not. The food was excellent. The hen of the woods mushrooms were outstanding!
Service was a bit slow and it was quite loud because they were so busy, but that would not stop me from going back as we had a nice anniversary dinner.
Beautiful restaurant, food was great. It was a bit cold in there and we were stuck under a vent that cooled our steaks down within a matter of 5-10 minutes. Server seemed to spend more time romancing and selling the menu to other tables over ours which was a bit dissapointing. Manager did come to see if there was anything they can do which was very appreciated but a bit too late, she was kind enough to take care of my partners steak who was pretty upset by it all. I personally would come back again to give it another shot because there is definitely quality found throughout the entire establishment
Amazing service and amazing food, per usual
Best steak I've ever had! There is a variety of high quality food options available. Wonderful place for a special date night or celebratory event.
RPM Steak did not disappoint. Excellent service from the moment we walked in through the door until we left the restaurant. We had oysters, several excellent cocktails, spicy miso lobster, lamb chops, brussels sprouts and onion rings. And, that decadent dark chocolate cake was to die for! Everything was so delicious. It was a fantastic birthday for me! I will be back!
We had an amazing experience, all of our food was delicious! Our server Matt was excellent, we were all so full from our meal but he knew we had been eyeing a dessert and even after we said we didn’t have room he brought us out a complimentary one which he definitely didn’t need to do. He went above and beyond! We will definitely be back.
Was a little dark but everything else was perfect!
Everything was outstanding! Food was delicious, service was great! Thank you!
This was my second visit after trying it out for Chicago’s Restaurant Week. I went back to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious as I expected. But what really impressed me was that, for whatever reason, after being seated, there was a five minute wait before a waiter came to our table. Long story short, they waived our entire bill! We weren’t in a hurry, so we didn’t complain one iota, but it impressed me, because my background includes customer service, and this is how you keep customers.
Great place if you want to show off and spend over $350 per person. Food is great, outstanding service.
Service was excellent and the steak was amazing.
Was amazing, perfect birthday meal. The Hokkaido Waygu and Cheesecake were my favorite out of everything we ordered.
Server Tony was next level awesome. Food knocked it out of the park. Was probably 20% more expensive than I was anticipating but whatever. Will be back soon
The lamb chops were very fatty and not worth the price.
Josh is a great waiter.
Phenomenal food, service, and atmosphere. Steak was prepared perfectly to my liking. Waitress was superb in helping us navigate the menu and pacing the courses. Really excellent all around. A bit expensive but worth every penny.
Overall an enjoyable experience. Celebrating an anniversary. Steaks were good but expect to pay $.
Eric was our server and did a great job. Always checked back at the right times and had good suggestions. Food is always spot on and my go to for business or fun dinner.
Outstanding service was the highlight of our dining experience. Our waiter, Raymond, was exceptional. The back servers were also right on task. Ambiance was nice, the spacing within the dining room was appropriate. The food was very good as we both had different cuts of steak. The complimentary cotton candy and beignets to honor my wife’s birthday was a nice touch. I would recommend RPM for a special occasion as the prices were quite high.
Service was fabulous. Steak was what you dream about. Cocktails were REAL (and nailed). Thank you, Giuseppe and Isaiah, for a fantastic evening!
We visit yearly from out of town and always have a family dinner here. First time in 7 years we were slightly disappointed by the food. Filet was overdone and both ribeyes under seasoned. Brussels sprouts overly seasoned and oily. Mac and cheese, wedge salad, desserts and service were all good!
Phenomenal meal, excellent service! Spritz & Giggles cocktail was to die for! Worth every penny!!
Best steak in Chicago period.
It was my first time at RPM steak. We were celebrating our anniversary and had a few extra friends with us there to celebrate. I had a reservation at 8:30pm and was disappointed that we didn’t get seated until 9pm. The hostess upon arrival wasn’t friendly at all. I felt I was an inconvenience to her from the minute I walked in the restaurant. Other then that, our waiter was phenomenal and I enjoyed the rest of the night.
Fantastic steak and Justin our waiter was excellent
My wife and I did not feel taken care of by our waiter, didn’t even get a name. It was our first time here and we were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Our waiter seemed more attentive to other guest and merely brushed us off to the side and gave us 2 seconds of his time as he passed by between the two tables we were between. At the end of the night as we asked for the check he gave us the wrong table check and we had to go to another server to get it fixed since he was not around. Overall Food was amazing, service not so much.
without hesitation - one of the best steak houses in Chicago.
While the steak was supposed to be incredible, it was very difficult for me to tell any difference between a $25 Steak and the $100 Steak I bough at RPM. The appetizer and desert were extraordinary.
I would not return. The prices are ridiculously high.
Excellent service and meal every time. Truly a treat to dine there.
What a brilliant place, will definitely go back!
Wonderful time. Our server who’s name I forget (early thirties, beard) was nothing less than stellar. Can’t wait to come back.
With aunt and friends 😭
The 28 days dry aged steak did not taste like it had been aged for that long. I almost think they were pulling a fast one on us. I know what dry aged beef should taste and feel like, the one I had here did not meet my expectations by a long shot. Everything else about the place was good.
The food was really good, it was a great date night and the noise level was low. There was a mix up with our table and another table though and they kept trying to bring us their food. The gentleman bringing us the food looked frustrated when I tried to explain we didn't order that.
I went here fort birthday dinner with my 2 sisters and brother in law and we had an absolutely amazing time! All of the food we tried was delicious, our steaks were cooked perfectly and the service was very attentive. I will be going back in the near future for sure and would recommend to anyone for a good time!
I have been dining at RPM for the last Four years during Chicago houseware show/ coming For our anniversary from New York City and prior to that we have been celebrating at The DC location. I made my reservation a month in advance for 9 PM for two people. Arriving to the restaurant they told me that we’d have to be waiting 20 minutes for our table-Other people who are being told to wait we’re given glasses of champagne and asked If they like something to drink they did not offer this to us -after waiting an additional 10 minutes making the time 930 I spoke to the hostess where she apologized for giving the wrong information and then finally offered us a drink she told us our table would be ready soon— This went on for another half an hour, back-and-forth of asking When our table would be ready and Being given wrong information we finally were asked to Be seated at 10 PM. Our waitress who was prepped on the hour long wait brought the manager and they both were very argumentative and fake. It is no excuse to make someone wait one hour for a table when they have a reservation. After we went to order our appetizer and entrée is the waitress told us that they are already bringing out appetizers for the inconvenience which We did not want - what were they were bringing ?? as we had our own Chosen- They were bringing seafood but did not ask us if we Any dietary restrictions or allergies which we did. She went back to cancel the appetizers since they were seafood -They brought out at our appetizer and later comped it but then also brought out desserts that we did not ask for and also did not eat. Although it was nice that they’re trying to give us free appetizers and desserts we would’ve rather just been comped on the stuff we wanted to order and eat ourselves instead of being given things that we cannot eat that would go to waste. Our entrées Steaks were overcooked and took over an hour to come out. We wait 1 hour to sit and 2 hours for dinner. We will not be back
An overall excellent experience. The manager was very helpful in getting us timely seated and providing an excellent table for a family bday celebration. The waitstaff was attentive and the food excellent. A wonderful night all around.
