I have been to amazing steakhouses all over the US, and many abroad. Every once in awhile, one will “wow” me. This one came close, but a $550 tab for four should nail it, every time. The dutchess cut filet is already served with bernaise,...More

This is a great restaurant. Not cheap but adequate. The environment was great and even better was service. Service was harmonious, non-intrusive, pleasant. Menu and wine list are excellent. Emphasis is on meat dishes but there are alternatives, appetizers were fantastic.

We had a fantastic evening, with excellent food and wine. The interior is a must see and added to the ambiance created. The service was very good. We will definitely return again. Any of the steaks on the menu would be a great choice.

Most reviews have pegged Bavette’s as the best steakhouse in the Windy City, and in two words, I agree. It’s not easy being the best in the cow capital of the United States, but they have succeeded. I had been to their Vegas restaurant, but...More

Over the bridge on Wabash to Kinzie turn left. Up the road about 4 blocks on your right. However long that takes you to walk. I would say at least 20 minutes if you are taking a leisurely stroll.
