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.

This restaurant was highly recommended by many of my friends but unfortunately I didn’t have the great experience I was hoping for. When I got to the hostess stand, they didn’t really give me direction as to where I needed to go. They just told me to walk to the lounge area where there was no one there to greet me. I waited a little bit until someone asked me if I was waiting for a table. The food was pretty average for a Chicago restaurant. I think it’s valued much higher than the quality of the food, and I ultimately ended up getting sick that evening. I don’t think I’ll be going back.

Carving, salad, omelet station fantastic. Mushroom pasta excellent. Seafood platter good. All the Deserts were tasteless and awful. French Toast old. Service wasn't the best considering we had to ask several times for water and coffee. There wasn't much for the sever to do since it was a buffet.

There are steakhouses galore in Chicago, then there is Maple & Ash. This was our first visit and will not be our last. What to say? Service impeccable, food was beyond expectations. By far the best steaks my fiancé and I have ever had in Chicago, best steaks ever had. A wine list to impress with a staff to guide you along the way. While not a restaurant for a quiet dinner, we enjoyed ourselves immensely on all aspects of the dinner. This is now a must on our future visits to Chicago. Thank you for a memorable experience!!

Cannot say enough good things about Maple & Ash! If you're looking for a nice birthday or any celebratory dinner out, look no further. The second you sit down, your waiter will shake and serve their custom seasonal cocktail and provide a few small bites (for free). Everything on the menu is 10/10. As good as the food is, the service is up there too. Ambiance can't be beat. Trendy, dark, and delicious while remaining classic. Beats out almost any other steakhouse, period.

The restaurant was impressive. Service, food, and drink was above standard. A bit pricey, but worth it. Just make sure you know the price of the special when they shave white truffle on it. Small bowl, large price.

Celebrated my birthday with a delicious dinner at this swanky venue. I recommend the seafood tower- still dreaming of fire-roasted mussels, scallops and lobster! Felt taken care of by attentive yet chill waiter and welcomed with a personalized birthday message printed on menu.

We came here for my husbands birthday. Gave us a very nice welcome drink and a little raddish dish, which was also nice. Only thing I can complain about is that it was my husbands birthday, and most restaurants...bavettes, Chicago cut, etc will bring some sort of dessert out for the occasion, but they did not. The only other thing I can complain about is that once we paid our bill we never saw our server again. When you pay over $300 for a meal I guess you expect more....

first time there. We ordered wedge salad s and octopus for appetizers. They were all excellent.
Entrees included petite filet, fish, bone in sirloin and pork chops. All prepared perfectly. Had sides of Brussels sprouts and mushrooms)enough for whole table). Service was impeccable. Expensive but isn't good food and service everywhere?. Would definitely go back. Based on the crowd so will a lot of other people.
