“A prime spotting place for local celebrities, political figures and even a few movie stars, Smith & Wollensky has long been considered a premier dining destination. Offering simple elegant food, attention to detail in service, a refined setting, the experience is uniquely American—and says unequivocally “YOU’VE ARRIVED™.”

Adjacent to the Loop on bustling State Street, our two-story Chicago location offers an impressive view of the Chicago River and features a large outdoor patio open during pleasant weather, spring through fall. Enjoy turn-of-the-century décor, and ample space for private events. For more casual fare or a relaxing cocktail hour, visit Wollensky’s Grill on the lower floor. Tours of the dry-aging room and on-site butcher shop may be arranged by special request. We proudly serve USDA Prime steaks, premium seafood and award-winning wines.

Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group owns and operates nine iconic Smith & Wollensky locations in Miami Beach, Chicago, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Columbus, Houston and two restaurants in Boston, as well as its new Wollensky’s Grill in Chicago, opened fall 2014.
