Chicago is known for having some of the best Steak Houses in America and according to the online reviews, Chicago Cut is supposed to be one of the best.  We arrived a few minutes before our group and were greeted by a very friendly host staff.  They asked if we would like to sit in the bar and we said yes.  As soon as we entered the dimly lit bar area we were approached by several different people who welcomed us and offered to take our drink menu.  I asked for a glass of wine and the waitress brought over an iPad and guided me through the pages that list the wine.  Service in bar was exceptional, professional and as good as any place I have ever visited.  When time came to move into the dining room the first thing I noticed was how close the tables are to each other.  Barely enough room to walk to your seat.  The tables are packed in here so tightly that there is a confining feeling and no sense privacy.  Our waiter was a true pro with tons of knowledge about everything on the menu.  He took time to go over all of the fresh selections, specials and various cuts of meat.  He highly recommended the Bone In Rib Eye and explained in detail the aging process of their meats.  I wanted the Rib Eye so bad but it was like 16 oz of beef.  I knew that I could not possibly finish this much meat especially after Soup and Salad so I opted for the 8 oz Center Barrel Cut Filet Mignon ($46).  Prior to my steak I enjoyed the Soup of the Day which was a Crab Bisque.  The Soup was delicious and full of nice pieces of crab.  I followed the Soup up with a Wedge Salad ($15).  The Wedge was big enough for two people and the bacon on the salad was unbelievable.  I picked off every piece of bacon on the plate but could not possibly finish the entire salad.  This was not by favorite Wedge Salad in the world but it was not bad.  At $15 I would have expected a little better.  My steak was a huge disappointment.  It arrived looking very lonely on the large plate.  I looked at the morel of beef and questioned whether it was an 8 oz cut.  Looked like 6 oz to me.  The steak was very dry on the outside.  I had ordered it medium rare and when I cut in it looked more like medium well.  I took a bite and then another.  There was no taste and no seasoning.  I grabbed the salt shaker which I never ever do at most Steak Houses and sprinkled salt onto the steak.  The salt came out very fast so I thought that I had over salted my steak.  I took a bite with all the salt and still no taste.  The salt helped but putting this steak down was like eating an expensive piece of leather.  I did not finish it.  Bright side was the company I was with, Truffled Scalloped Potatoes and the desserts.  We tried an array of the desserts and they were all wonderful.
