    As a Bay Area guy, just have to say how much I enjoyed the food and service here. Many new restaurants can learn a few things about taking care of your patrons from these guys.

    For the first time I was let down with my meal. Pasta was overdone and no bread was offered. Service and ambiance was spot on as always and the service is great. I will be back. My wife’s dish was outstanding so may have been just a bad luck dish for me.

    Michelin guide needs to visit this place and explain why it is not highly rated. Every detail about Gene and Georgetti is outstanding. Ambiance (spacious tables, temperature, not noisy), Service (professional by servers that like and know what they are doing - we had Juan Munoz - he can write the book on how to be a server), food choices and quality (had Prosciutto wity buratta as appetizer - what a treat and Lamb chops, wife had Chilean Seabass - both awesome). Cocktails and wine selection 10+.

    Good service, nice atmosphere. Bottle of Wine was WAY overpriced. We give the steak a B rating. The girls had the eggplant Parmesan and maybe a 2 out of 5, no flavor but big portions. Apps were average. Shrimp with garlic a 2 out of 5. Been coming for years but last visit was 5+ years ago. Too many much better places , won’t be back. Too bad.

    When we walked in, no one greeted us. Our first time there so we didn't know where the host stand was. Had to ask the bartender where to go for our reservation. Calamari didn't taste fresh, steak was overcooked on the outside and chewy while the center was way undercooked. Asparagus didn't have any seasoning and you could tell the deserts weren't made fresh.

    It’s been quite a number of years since we’ve been there. Was very excited for a fabulous meal. Turned out to be disappointing for all attendees who were too gracious to say anything during the meal. The raw tuna appetizer gets a true thumbs up, it was excellent. The calamari was on the sauce under is. The people who had linguini dishes found the pasta was a big tangles dry ball underneath the toppings/sauce which confirmed nothing was mixed together and the pasta difficult to mix and not appetizing. Flavors fell short on what should be a fine dining experience. Ravioli had some type of metallic take, still don’t know if it was the utensil or perhaps something that made it’s was into the food. I will say the bread was nice, although, we did have to ask for it, it was not brought to the table…not sure if that is customary these days, although we did hear another table say the same thing. So, value was expensive for what we got. We all kindly decided to skip on desserts and coffee and found a fabulous local dessert place.

    For my birthday (while on biz travel)…we ate outside (street side)…the occasional L train added to the city ambiance and was not a real distraction. Great food and drinks, classic dinner spot in Chicago!!

    Do not go here unless you want to be spoiled. The service is impeccable. Professional and courteous. The food is amazing but not if you’re a vegetarian. Or maybe it is but I wouldn’t know because the steaks are unbelievably delicious and all our steaks were perfectly cooked. Not cheap but we’ll worth it. We sat in the bar which was a little noisy. I booked online and didn’t realize we should call to sit in the main ding area.
