Chicago Oyster House
Already recommended this place to several friends. All appetizers and entrees were outstanding and the service was excellent. Oysters were outstanding but we also had steaks and pasta that were tasty and cooked to perfection.
Had a business dinner and this restaurant was fine. Drinks were ok. It was close to our hotel. Oysters were excellent and one of our group said Oysters Rockefeller were great as was the Chilean Sea Bass. The Hawaiian Tuna was ok and we had it very rare.
Bench was too low to the table not a good arrangement. Chair was a fine height.
Wine list was short and overpriced.
Great menu, and enjoyable evening.
The food was just okay for the price. I have no issues with spending extra when the food is awesome. The decor and ambiance was great but the food was just okay. I really wanted the food to be great because the restaurant is in my neighborhood, so I’m a little disappointed.
Dinner was outstanding. Service and food were great!
The bartender, served and owner were all extremely personable. The food and drinks were unique and prepared perfectly. I Highly recommend this restaurant.
Good food, good service
Waitress service was fine, but she should've warned us if the sushi bar was backed up so we would've ordered something else for appetizers. Our appetizers came out only minutes before our main course and we were really hungry by then.
First, it's a small intimate restaurant, so simply make a reservation on OpenTable and arrive and be seated promptly as we did. The interior design is fresh and modem but welcoming. We were greeted right away, taken to our table and our server was to our table to get drinks ordered right away. She was very helpful, recommending specials and assisting us in order from the raw bar. The oysters were excellent and of great variety. We added an edamame appetizer after ordering entrees and it arrived perfectly prepared, hot and wonderful. Our entrees arrived in a timely manner, not too fast but without delay. Our server returned frequently to check on us, top off our wine glasses.
Second, the food was exceptional. We each had a seafood entree that was very fresh, hot and flavourful. The desserts were top notch (Key Lime and tiramisu) with Expresso and Latte. It's not an inexpensive restaurant, but we found the pricing reasonable for our selection.
Finally, and maybe an unusual observation, but the addition of a sugar scrub hand soap in the restrooms was an excellent touch! Highly recommend the restaurant and would definitely return again.
Food is bland and service is mediocre. Expensive for what you get.
We are regulars and Oyster House hasn’t disappointed us yet. My hubby loves their Chilean Sea Bass and wasabi mashed potatoes. I love their sushi. Nice wines by the glass. Always a great experience!
Very nice scenery quiet and elegant great for a date
Loved this restaurant. The service was superb and so was the food. I will be making reservations soon. I highly recommend dining here. Great for anniversary or other special occasions.
Melt in the mouth food. The amazing quality doesn’t come cheaply but worth every cent.
Loved every mouthful.
Beautiful gem of a restaurant.
The oysters are excellent! Best oysters I have had away from a coast!
Outstanding, and it was mild.
I recommend it for a business lunch
Eingang muss gesucht werden, ALLE sehr freundlich, schneller Service, Essen sehr gut
Service was good very attentive service a little demeaning prices higher than a comparable to a restaurant inon the Las Vegas strip.
Atmosphere was good but lighting was bad and but food was not impressive. We all got different entrées, appetizers and desserts and none of us that any of food was good. We also got things that the staff had recommended. Unfortunately, the cost of the dinner was way more then I wanted to pay for food we didn’t even like. Our waitress and bus boy was very good though.
Grilled oysters were great! I’ll be back for more.
This visit to the Chicag Oyster House was my first of many. I personally highly recommend the delicious food we enjoyed at our table which was seasoned to perfection! I must add that it is in a nice location to travel to here in Chicago. The ambiance and the nice people who waited our table were very nice and helpful! Thank you!!!
Great service!!! Thank you
Great ambiance. Clean and friendly. We were in town for a convention. We loved what the menu had to offered and really enjoyed the experience.
Great bar service, table service and overall ambiance. I was a little apprehensive when I saw the photos online (looks like it is in a strip mall type space) but inside the restaurant was great! Food was excellent, steaks fish and oysters all top notch! Will be back!!
We enjoyed everything we ordered except the grilled calamari; it was overcooked so it was rubbery. The chef must have been busy.
The seafood platter had minuscule lobster claws, bland shrimp & too salty crab - utterly disappointing.
Great place to eat with a nice variety of dishes. Great service and friendly staff. Grilled oysters are a must!
Excellent service and quality food.
we had a really good time, food was great. great service. grilled oyster were a little over done but on a whole everything was delicious. seafood pasta was good. raw oysters were great.
Very good food! Good selection of fish and seafood. Excellent service!
This restaurant is an odd bird. For a "white tablecloth" presentation, the clientele was, well, more what you'd expect from a restaurant within 2 blocks of McCormick Place, which made for an odd cultural mix. But overall, our experience was a good one. The oysters, as you would expect, were simply wonderful. The pricing is mostly à la carte, which means it's pretty easy to burst past your budget. They also do not do fountain drinks, so you'll pay for every one of those individual small bottles of diet coke. I did the seafood pasta, which was very good. My wife got a bowl of the clam chowder, which was exceptional. We should have skipped the garlic bread -- it didn't add much to the meal. The service was quite good.
Great atmosphere and awesome service. I have already recommended it to my family
Just a great place for excellent seafood. We tried it all!
We enjoyed both raw oysters and oysters Rockefeller, the catch of the day (king fish)--one of us ordered the blackened and the other ordered the grilled. The blackened was slightly overcooked, but our waiter brought us sauce from the grilled fish, which greatly improved the taste. Our waitstaff were outstanding, from our main waiter to his assistants who were always there refilling our water. Thanks for a great evening.
Wonderful food ! Staff was excellent! Great place for that special occasion!
The food was great! Grilled oysters and sushi we're my favorite! Service could have been a little better but she was very nice and quick.
Excellent dining experience. As close as you can get to Drago’s in New Orleans for oysters!
