"Servers were slow and uniforms were stained and tattered Decor was very dated and while I understand it is the 1st steakhouse in Chicago, many more have opened and S&W still needs to keep up it's standard. Food was decent and price was good, I saw a couple of other places I would have prefererred had I been asked. It's ashame as I thought it would be good as the one in Rosemont is much better."

"During the course of the evening I sent two glasses of wine back because they had turned. Fillet steak was tough and the salmon was dry and over cooked. Carpacio had very little meat. Our three previous visits were fantastic and we were looking forward to another great evening; however, it turned out to be a very disappointing experience. I doubt if we will ever return.
Service and scenery were excellent."

"Our server was extremely slow - tables all around us turned over at least once. Once he got to us he was attentive and nice but certainly in no hurry to bring us anything. The food was good but not worth the steep pricing."

"Went to dinner for our anniversary and requested a river view. When we arrived, there was only one other table with people. Soon other people started arriving. There was an all male group that was seated a table away from us. They were loud and really ruined our attempt at a romantic dinner. They should have sat in he bar area.
Our server Kevin (I believe was his name) was very nice. He gave us each a glass of champagne to celebrate, which I believe we were charged for but did not order. My bone in filet was just ok. My husbands steak was better but nothing special. The wild mushroom side was flavorless. I guess we paid for the view because the food and ambiance was not worth the price. We don't usually treat ourselves to fancy dinners so we were disappointed.

"Having dined frequently at S&W, I have enjoyed everything from soups and salads to a decent size steak. The food is always first rate, but when you can enjoy it out on the patio on a sunny spring day - its glorious. The outstanding ambience spurred lively and humorous conversation."
