Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I tried this Ditka’s location a couple of years ago and really didn’t think it was worth the money nor worth re-visiting, so I hadn’t until recently when a friend who’d never been wanted to go, so we went… four of us as a business...dinner. The server was OK and the venue is nice, menu is decent too. But their execution of the food isn’t very good. I started with their crab bisque and it was tasty, but wasn’t hot, like soup normally is. We got their large nachos to share and the beef in them tasted interesting, but these were also not hot; in fact, they were somewhat cool. For my entrée I tried their twin filet medallions with crab cakes. The mashed potatoes were very flavorful, but cool. The green beans were tasty and hot. The filets I asked for medium, but they were well done. I couldn’t even eat the second was, sa it was too tough and dry. I cut into it and showed the server and she acknowledged and asked if I wanted new ones, but at that point, it wouldn’t have mattered, it’s very easy to get this right in the first place, they need to do that, rather than try to make up for it afterwards. Needless to say, we won’t be back.More

I asked for medium rare steak and it was perfectly cooked!! (I ordered the medallion cuts w/crab cakes and husband ordered New York steak) this IS the best steakhouse in my experience 🤗 The crème brûlée was irresistible 💕

prices were decent as well as service. where they lose it is in the quality of their dishes. food came out within 15 min. what does that tell you? Ribs must have been sitting around for while. completely dried out and tough. the chicken piccata...flavor was not that good. i dont recommend the short rib nachos as they were barely edible and their pork chop was dry and overcooked. chocolate layer cake was dry and did not have enough raspberry sauce. the cheesecake was the only item ordered was good. nice and creamy however the strawberries looked like they were previously frozen. try somewhere else for you hard earned $$. i give it 5/10More

We have either came for dinner or got take out once a week for years!! We moved and haven’t been here for about a year. We made a special trip for dinner. Honestly, I don’t know where to start… the food was marginal. All of...our favorites have changed and were not good! Our drinks took 20 Minutes. In fact, we got our salads first. And there was only 3 other tables filled in the whole dining room!! They were not busy! The waiter was inattentive and just rude. The manager was standing in the entry when we were leaving and never said a word. How about asking how was our dinner ? My husband went to the car and I used the restroom. When I left, There was 3 woman at the hostess area and the manager was talking to them. I walked past and smiled. They didn’t say, thank you, or have a good evening. Nothing!! The manager was at the door and didn’t open the door. Now, I am a grown adult and can open my own door but I am an older woman and it would of been nice to have the manager, That was standing next to the door, Open it and say something… Once again, We were weekly customers for Years!! Oh, and our bill was $175. Just a terrible place. We won’t be back!More

First impression; the place was very dark and cold (temp) somewhat upscale decor. Was greeted by the waitress promptly. She was brief like she was in a hurry and somewhat awkward. No specials, she explained that they were known for steaks that came all the...way from Chicago (wow). Ordered drinks, they came promptly then the appetizer which actually came way too fast. This is a red flag for me. Calamari was tasty but not at all special. No bread was brought to the table. Ordered dinner, all dinners are a la cart. Dinner was brought by a bus boy, never saw our waitress again until we were almost done eating (horrible). We were never asked if we needed anything until it was too late. No condiments or parmigiana cheese was offered. A younger companion got a Rocky Bleier Burger, it was very tasty but tiny with average fries for $19. Chili's would have been a better option for this meal. Shrimp Scampi over Linguine; Pasta portion was very small (seriously?), Very tasty, perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked however is was on the dry side needed more oil/butter? / but the waitress was no where to found to help. $28. NY strip; tasted outstanding perfectly cooked, was ordered with mushrooms that were excellent $58. Potato was $8. Bill with 4 drinks tax and tip was over $200. Table service was absolute minimal, worse than you would expect in a cheap diner. Sooo never again. I do not recommend. If it weren't for corporate spending accounts this restaurant would not exist.More

Service was very good. Drink selection wasn’t great. The food was average at best. I got a pork chop and one scoop of mashed potatoes. The food was average. Normally I don’t care about prices but 26$ for that is a lot!

We were in the Pittsburgh area for the night, from Baltimore, and followed the recommendations of a friend to give this place a shot while we were here. We arrived and were seated and introduced to our server. The atmosphere is quite nice and our...servers manners were impeccable. We ordered the signature nachos which came out promptly and packed a lot of flavor. I enjoyed the little kick in the shredded beef. I followed that up with a burger and everything came out hot and satisfying. Wife had the lobster Mac and ooohed and ahhhed over it. The other couple had great things to say about their meal and all of us salivated over the desserts. The cheesecake and crème brûlée was destroyed in our attempt to slip into a sugar induced state of mind. Overall great experience and excellent service for us.More

Sat at the bar, friendly server but very busy so not much in way of interaction or attentiveness. Surprising since it was 3:30 on a Friday and not peak dinner seating, but there was only 1 bartender. Ate the Mikes salad and the burger which...were both unbelievably delicious. Would go back in a heartbeat anytime I’m in the area. That burger was awesome.More

Took a few of my business colleagues to Ditkas for dinner last night. I've been there before and there was no doubt in my mind that service and food would be great. They always aim to please. Diane was our waitress and she went above...and beyond to accommodate us. Very pleased with our dinners and service. A definite favorite in my book.More

First off, Shannon, our server was exceptional! The entire staff was friendly, accommodating, and eager to please us. Now the food - unbelievably delicious! Coffee rubbed Delmonico was cooked to perfection, and quite honestly the best steak I ever had. The oysters on the half...shell were a bit small, but fresh and the cocktail sauce was perfect. The Day Boat Scallops again, were cooked to perfection. Not a fan of risotto, so I won't judge. And-do not pass up the Coconut Shrimp with a perfect bang bang sauce or the Raspberry Smash Martini. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary, and they threw in a delicious piece of Chocolate cake with ice cream that even my husband enjoyed (he's not a fan of chocolate). Expensive but worth every dime!More

Maybe, they are good, but not great. It sounds like they are memorable in Chicago. In Pittsburgh, they were not.
