At this point, most high-end, expensive steak restaurants all serve very good to excellent steaks, cooked perfectly (The Barn's steaks were very good...but didn't quite rise to excellent) so the differentiation comes with the appetizers, the sides, the cocktails/wine and the ambiance/service.  Here The Barn comes up a bit short.  The Little Gem Salad with dijon dressing was excellent, prepared table side, but very meager at $12 and the side of brussels sprouts were way undercooked and average tasting.  I ordered a classic daiquiri (rum, lime juice and simple syrup)...which is always a great test of a cocktail bar...I am not sure what I got but it didn't really taste like a daiquiri...maybe they used sour mix?  And the service was just average and the server wasn't especially friendly...there were 4 of us and the bill, with tip was $ you would expect the service to be top notch.  Finally, it doesn't help that Google lists the address as 1016 Church Street when in fact the entrance is in the alley behind Church, off of either Maple or Oak...and when you call the restaurant asking for directions they keep putting you on hold.
How did I not know about this place?! One of the best steaks i have had in greater Chicago area. Finely crafted cocktails, knowledgeable staff with superb help and suggestions. And really good service too.Get me back to The Barn! Soon
