    Try the 40-Day Dry Aged Rib Eye - Medium Rare (via @Foodspotting)

    Jon Chan · October 17, 2015
  • John K.

    In town on business and instead of fighting traffic back to Rosemont at rush hour decided on dinner @ David Burke's. 50-day Rib Eye was excellent but I still prefer Gibson's! Mac n Cheese was great!

    Had the 50 day aged rib-eye which was excellent. Best cut is bone-in filet. Outstanding! Bring your wallet

    Steak and Red Velvet Cake must have!

    Amazing dry aged steaks AND kid friendly? You bet! If you ask, the tour of the dry aging room is worth a peek.

    Unique steak aging room imparting unique flavor. Specialty cocktails worthwhile.

    Love going here for lunch. I've ordered the burger every time because it's that good.

    Kate Schaffer · January 27, 2015
  • Adam L.

    Surprisingly good cocktail program here, including some barrel aged. You've never had anything like the Petit Confit (whistlepig, absinthe, duck infused white wine).

    Adam Laiacano · January 2, 2015
  • Chicago Tribune

    This spot has been named the #1 steakhouse in Chicago. Try the 55 or 75-day dry aged rib-eye steak or the 40-day prime steak burger. ProTip: Dry aged steaks can be purchased for home grilling. Read more

    Try the 55-day - I liked it better then the 75. If you're feeling ambitious, go for the cake in a can! Also fun to tour the aging room after.

    Jawwad Akhtar · October 17, 2014
  • Rebecca M.

    I'm still drooling over their red velvet cake in a can. You have to order it at the start of the meal because it takes about 40 minutes. It's worth the wait.

    The 55 day aged Ribeye is THE best steak in the US.

    Pumpkin Head · August 17, 2014
  • Jack S.

    The food is good here, but I wouldn't say this is the best steak house in the Midwest. Copper rock has cheaper steaks that blow this place's steaks out of the water! Staff wears jeans..looks so tacky

    Jack Schnell · August 10, 2014
  • Melissa A.

    My first aged steak ... absolutely delicious. I would come back here in a second. (And the seafood tower was pretty good! I'm spoiled with super fresh seafood in boston tho)

    Guy Meikle, chef of Charlie Baggs Culinary Innovations, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Himalayan salt dry-aged ribeye. Read more

    After your beef bacchanal, head upstairs and crash on the billion thread count sheets, then do it all over again tomorrow night. (Seriously, you’ll want to go back again and again). Read more

    You do taste the notes of blue cheese in the 55 day aged bone in ribeye. The bacon on a stick, more appropriately named pork belly on a stick, was also the epitome of smoky sweet goodness.

    Wonderful service from Corey D. Skip the 40, go for the 55. Be prepared to take some home.

  • Ata K.

    Mixed feelings. Tried the 55-day ribeye. It was quite good, and among the better cuts of meat I've tried. But service was awful and steaks are, IMHO, 20-30% overpriced. Caesar Salad was delicious.

    Ata Khan · April 16, 2014
  • Niket D.

    I felt like service was sub par for price point. But food is great so that's the final say on that.

    No place in Chicago dry ages beef with such passion as David Burke's.

    I found the 75 day aged ribeye disappointing. Tough, not particularly flavorful. Awesome Caesar, sides, muffins, service, wines.

    Pete Johnson · October 26, 2013
  • Kevin S.

    The bacon for appetizer was delicious!! Also love the cheesecake for dessert. Of you have a lot of guests and not enough room in your belly, these bite size cheesecakes are perfect.

    Kevin Sanchez · October 20, 2013
  • Sara M.

    Omg. The 55 day dry aged steak was undoubtably the best steak I've ever tasted in my life. And they even have a 75 day old! The mac&cheese was amazing. And the bread puffs. This place is so worth it.

    Service was a D. Food was good. I ate at bar can't comment on restaurant service. That said, bar was a bad enough service experience that I won't be back.

    Table side Caesar salad, bacon sticks and dry aged steaks. Can't go wrong here.

    Ask for the tour of the dry aging room. It's a great to see the process up close.

    If you're more of a burger person, get the burger. Its exactly what aged beef is supposed to taste.
