The food was very good, steak was tender, and breaded jumbo shrimp were a very nice size. The restaurant itself could use a little updating. The atmosphere was ok, but I feel with some updating it would match the quality of the food.

This restaurant is very nice to have a date night! The lighting and setting is low key and the food is amazing! I highly recommend saving room for dessert if you go here!

If you believe in polls and surveys--and what rational citizen would in the wake of the recent presidential election?--you have to wonder who rates steakhouses in Chicago. Select Cut Steak House at 2808 North Halsted Street in the Lakeview East neighborhood rarely is mentioned in any list of the top 10 steakhouses in the city. I wish someone would explain... More

It’s been four years since I’ve eaten at Select Cut Steak House and not much has changed. There’s nothing special about the décor but the food is very good – and reasonable. I had their Caesar Salad (though it was a bit more like romaine lettuce and croutons with a house-made Italian dressing) – not what I’d call a Caesar... More

Almost everything was really great! The stuffed mushroom caps were a little too "bready" but the crab cakes made up for them! One of my friends had a steak and she said it was flawless. It was a nice treat.

This place served the best steak I ever after in my life, and the server was great and funny and very helpful. He brought a glass of milk to one of the kids for free. Definitely if I get the chance I'll be coming back. First Egyptian there :)

Select Cut was recommended by Adrian at our hotel, The Willows, and he was spot on. Really great service, smallish but well-curated wine list (reasonably priced) and awesome meat. This is a neighborhood gem! My only comment was there was a bit too much dressing on the Caesar salad...but the bread was wonderful, as were all the other sides. The... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel (Days Inn on Diversey), so we stopped to check the menu and stayed for dinner. The steaks were out of this world. The chef knows how to cook a steak! And I like mine medium well. He likes his medium. I highly recommend the cherry martini AND the raspberry martini! Don't let the... More

What a great meal and experience! The food was delicious and the server was attentive. When he came to take our orders, he asked if we would like to see the specials. I thought he meant hear the specials. So we said yes. He left us for a moment and came back with a cutting board full of different steaks... More
