This was our second trip to RPM, WOW what a difference ! First dinner was great, service, food, ambiance all great. This trip not so much. Was first seated behind bar and music was so loud we could not converse across the table. I asked...if we could be moved to the main floor and they were very helpful and within 15 minutes we had a table in the main dining room. Unfortunately not much difference. I assume they are trying to cater to the young wealthy crowd, as most of the customers seemed to be in the 25 to 35 year range. I hope this works well for your restaurant as we will not be back (now I understand why young people text each other across the table). As for the food, steaks great as usual, skip mac and cheese as tasteless.More

The food was excellent. Drinks were okay. Overall good, not great. I was confused when they sat us in the bar area, as I made a reservation for the main dining area. But the hostess explained that the bar area counts as parts of the...main dining area. Very swanky bathroom. For the price and overall dining experience, I definitely prefer Bavette’s.More

Possibly the best steak I have ever had. Had the NY Strip. My party of four generally enjoyed the evening. Not 5 stars because the service was a bit sluggish. Need to flag that staff, which is just not right at all at this price...point. They need more staff per table ratio.More

I was looking forward to really splurging at RPM. I'm in town for a convention and staying right across the river from it. I tried to make reservations, but they said they don't have any for singles. Curious, I tried for a double, and mysteriously,...they have that. I checked out for a week, and yep, no single reservations available. This might be a great restaurant, but if they won't let me in, I'll never know.More

Been here many times. This visit was for a wedding anniversary. Sat outside, even though they can not control it, it was very funky having people walk by and smelling weed and seeing someone whose bottom was completely exposed. Service was great. Sever was Ann...and she was fantastic. Chatted with her for quite a while. My steak was very good. Had two appetizers that arrived cold. We sent them back and was returned cold again. Wife had fish with a miso sauce. Way too much miso on it and she couldn't really eat it. A pretty big disappointment overall.More

There are countless steakhouses in Chicago and I am on a mission to find the best ones. This one fell short for sure. I went with a friend and both our steaks were over-cooked. For the price you are paying for a sole piece of...meat, you expect close to perfection. The Japanese sweet potatoes and Caesar salad made up for what would have been a great disappointment.More

If I could give this restaurant 6 stars or more, I can honestly say it would have earned it. My husband and I love Chicago, with one of the reasons being the incredible food - RPM was no exception. We had a wagyu flight, and...everything was absolutely perfect. Our server was a gem, and was right there anytime we needed something. The sommelier was friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help. Nothing about the restaurant is stuffy, despite the high-end fare and excellent service. We will undoubtedly return to RPM on our visits to Chicago, and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.More

Based on my experience i found the food is really delicious, it was very crowded, i tried their dry aged burger and it was out of the World, as i didn’t have a reservation and just walked in and had the seat on the bar,...so the service was straight to the point as they were busy which was understood, i believe booking ahead would be much better to enjoy the real experience.More

Perfect night out in the city to celebrate and dress up a bit. The guest hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The place has a nice atmosphere and very good service. In addition, the food was bodaciously good! I recommend this restaurant to anyone-family, friends,...couples etc…More

RPM Steak was our best meal in Chicago!! We reserved RPM for a birthday celebration after careful review of many Chicago steakhouses and we were thrilled with our choice! We actually loved the food and hospitality so much that we changed our plans last minute...and came back a second time our last night in the city. Some of our highlights were the coal roasted king crab, Sakura strip, Japanese drunken wagyu, millionaire potato, and the 24K chocolate cake! A special thanks to Jason (GM?) and our gracious server, Taylor! They both made our experience and my birthday very memorable!More

I have spent a lot of time in Chicago and this was, by, far the worst place I have ever eaten. While the service was good, but the atmosphere was really uncomfortable. The clientele were loud, rude, and underdressed — I have never eaten dinner...with so many Kobe Bryants and LeBron James’. The food was overpriced crap. And, please, the wildly overpriced “Waygu” wasn’t even Waygu. For a stupid amount of money, they brought us six pieces of fatty beef. I know good Japanese beef, and this was not it. Do NOT waste your money, nor your time. If you want a good Chicago steak house, got to the Chicago Cut.More

This was our second visit to RPM. I have to say the food is always delicious even though a bit overpriced. The reason we came back was because of how great the service was the last time. They made you feel special, They were grateful...that you chose them to dine with. This time was completely different. Our waiter was very business like. He had many other tables to take care of and we felt forgotten. My wine glass and water glass had been empty for over 15 minutes by the time our Kobe Beef arrived at our table with the three sides we had ordered. Even then when we were served us all of those plates no one filled or offered to fill my glasses. I sat and waited for someone to notice while my food got cold. Very disappointed. I am sorry to say we will not be returning.More

It was 4 star service with 5 star food. The steak frites my wife had were some of the best and if you love crunchy fries then this is your dish! I had the Bernie Miller chop with the millionaire potatoes. It was spectacular.

The dress code is smart casual. I wore a dress shirt and a jacket, which seemed to be what most men were wearing.
