What Insiders Are Saying
We wanted to hate it, but we can’t. RPM Steak can hang with the Chicago steakhouse classics any day.
Everything was good!
Alex, our waiter, was engaging, attentive, and provided suggestions and recommendations. The food was delicious, servings plentiful and courses timed well. Every staff person was polite and when clearing the table, non-intrusive. They made my birthday dinner feel special while low key. Can't wait to go back.
While Chicago has many steak houses, RPM has the perfect combination of perfectly reliable service, terrific food (seriously, try the steak frites sometime or just get an order of the frites for your table), classy surroundings and quiet sound level that makes it my go-to place any time it will be important to attend to a conversation.
Outstanding as always!
This was our first time there. The server was very attentive and polite. The food was amazing. Would definitely go back.
This is the place if you’re looking for amazing food combined with outstanding service. The steaks are prepared perfectly and do not miss desert!
I had to wait 20 minutes for a previous reservation.
So I’ve been here before and had exceptional service. I came to celebrate an anniversary and expected a special experience especially for my partner who’s first time it was.
The hostess was rude and had an attitude which took me off guard and the reason why I’m writing this review.
I Would had liked a nice treat of cotton candy or dessert for our special occasion.
I would like to come back but definitely not for anything special.
This was our second time dining at RPM Steak and maybe we were jaded by our first great experience. However, we made our reservation 1 month in advance, since we were visiting from out-of-town. When we arrived for our 8:00 pm reservation, the restaurant wasn't overly full. However, we were seated in the bar area. While the booths are comfortable and fine, it is still the bar and not the same ambiance of the restaurant. We were then visited by our server, Jinny. She did not introduce herself to us and despite repeated attempts to engage her for suggestions, she was less than friendly. When we asked about a steak suggestion, she was less than informative. When the American Wagyu strip arrived, the steak was thin and flavor less than optimal. However, Jinny was no where to be found, and at this point, we were just ready to move on. When we ordered dessert, no coffee or after dinner drinks were offered, we would have taken both. Lastly, we were celebrating a birthday. While Jinny acknowledged the celebration, the cotton candy was sent out after our bill was already presented and our ordered dessert was finished, with a snide comment of "well I guess here is your dessert after dessert." I know this restaurant can do better. This was a less than average visit.
RPM was AMAZING!!!! The waitress’s was so sweet and helpfully with her recommendations!!! 5 star from beginning to end!!!!
Our server max was great perfect lighting can’t complain about anything
This is one special beef place
We celebrated my husbands Birthday here and could not say enough great things about it! The food and drinks were incredible! Amazing service and a beautiful restaurant!
Great steaks; get the bacon buttons; nice splurge for a special occasion
Been to this restaurant numerous times and never disappoints..looking forward to the next endeavor of RPM On The Water..
Great service, great food
The food is exceptional. Along with the service and atmosphere are too notch. At this level value is very subjective.
Absolutely loved the entire experience. Food was fantastic, service was wonderful, ambiance was beautiful and lively. We try different places downtown a lot... Definitely one of the best filets I've had. My only complaint it it was a little too costly for some items. Other than that, it was absolutely amazing.
The food was fantastic. The server was knowledgeable about the items on the menu. Everyone should try the Coconut Carrot Cake.
Food was great. Service was awesome. We really appreciated true anniversary champagne and cotton candy!
Dover sole was spoiled and inedible, management tried to explain it away without admitting that they served us spoiled food. They comped desert but the evening was ruined.
Service was excellent & ambiance was pleasant. Unfortunately the food’s flavor was average. Dessert was good.
Great steak and sides. Great Baked Alaska. Booths are fantadtic and comfortable set up for 4 or 5. Service was very professional but a little slow.
Loved it! Top notch steak, service, ambience
The food itself was good although I didn’t like the service which felt far too casual and rushed. I specifically book places which have gluten free menus. RPM did online but even when I asked the waiter for it he said the main menu could be self explanatory. A number of the things shown as GF on their own menu he then said were not. I disliked the fact my guests Plate was taken whilst I was still
Eating and we were given the cheque without even being offered more coffee or drinks - basically the instant we declined dessert. Far too hurried for the price they charge
I came to RPM with my husband and a good friend we hadn't seen in 4 years. We were visiting from Kansas City and were looking for an excellent night out and great steak. RPM has the most amazing variety of steaks! We started with the bacon appetizer and two of the crab appetizers. Both were fantastic but the crab was amazing. Between the three of us, we decided on splitting the 42 oz Mishima Tomahawk (recommended by our server) and the prime dry aged cowboy. Again, both were great but the Mishima Tomahawk was unbelievably tender and flavorful and cooked to perfection. Brussel sprouts were good, the millionaire's potato was great! Baked alaska was fantastic as well. Our server, Ann, was informative, professional and made perfect recommedations for us! Thank you so much, Ann! So as you can see our experience was almost perfection!
Justin was amazing he made our NYE experience
New Years Eve Dinner had a good time
Dined at RPM Steak on New Year's Eve. Although service was a bit slow, it was expected due to the holiday. The food quality is outstanding as well as the wine list. Worth checking out for special occasions. City pricing where you're not just paying for the food but also paying more for where you are eating it. Will be back again.
Great Food and service!
RPM is the best
The food was exceptional staff was wonderful and was very accommodating to my son (age 11) who eats very well but needed a smaller then the whole seafood tower. I would recommend not getting the desert however that was the only part of the entire meal that was lacking.
The steaks were fantastic and the sides were amazing I highly recommend the brussels sprouts
Todo estuvo muy bien
Excellent Food, Service Average. Seating was on time. Waitress was average.
We go every year to celebrate a birthday, and it never disappoints.
We started with the Parker rolls and the bacon- they were both delicious. I got the center cut filet and it was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. We split the Millionaire potatoes which is one of their known dishes and it was really good! It’s definitely a pricey meal but it was delicious!
Enjoyed the Tomahawk steak- shared it with 4 people.
