Nice view. On the expensiveNice view. On the expensive side and a bit over priced.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Bradley CooperCité was fantastic! The service was very well established for the restaurant style. No over enthusiasm, and nothing but friendly from the host stand to the expo staff. (Not to mention, our server kind of looked like Bradley Cooper. I had taken my sister for her first time in Chicago and we both enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu, and I personally found the choice the greatest meal (except the tomato and basil garnished salad) to be something to tell everyone about. Even better was, when dessert came out the timing match perfectly with Navy Piers firework show (Wednesday and Saturday nights) and we were able to enjoy our creme brulèe while watching the fireworks burst over Lake Mighigan. Outstanding, absolutely outstanding.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view. Ordinary foodIs great to go about once every 7 years. Wonderful view of Chicago skyline, North Lake Shore Drive and setting sun.
Food is OK, but not at all worth what it costs. $230 meal was comparable to $120 ad dozens of other great Chicago restaurants. But the view? Cannot get that anywhere else, except perhaps the 95th.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view and great food togetherI was skeptical about Cite because they obviously have a great view. Most view restaurants do not need to have great food, because enough people come for the view. But once seated and given the menu, I was immediately impressed. The menu was fantastic, and almost every dish was appealing to me. The tasting menu was more than I wanted to spend for the night, but our server was able to hook us up with the main dish from it. It was Chilean sea bass and it was exquisite. One of the best seafood dishes I've ever had. The steak Diane appetizer was wonderful. The bread service was nice. The potato gratin with parmesan and truffles was divine. A great dinner and a great experience. Incredible service too. Only downside was the heat.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRomance on a towerJust go. Enough said. Think about VDays, the night you want to propose, or celebrating parents anniversary. Everything is amazing.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful sceneryRomantic restaurant for date with beautiful view of Chicago5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways loved CiteFrom our days when we lived in Lake Point Tower (1996-1999), until now when we visit our favorite city, we've always loved City!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff and food was exellent,The staff and food was exellent, no complaints, if anybody do they are the one with problems.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenalCité was the finest dining experience we have ever enjoyed. Our server, Ootsi, was very personable and knowledgeable. He really cared about making it an evening to remember. We started with a fantastic bottle of wine and Prawns DeJonghe. The chef sent out a tasting of garden fresh gazpacho. I opted for the Lobster Bisque and my husband chose the Baked French onion soup. We each had the Waygu Strip, mine Oscar style and the other with scallops. We chose lobster orecchiette and cheese and sautéed spinach with garlic and almonds. The food was phenomenal.
We could not actually make it to dessert however, Ootsi had the bartender prepare each of us a small ice cream cocktail. It was an evening we will always remember fondly. Highly recommended.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMloved itThis isw agreat restaurant to take out of towners to.

Vue exceptionnelle sur le lac Michigan et la ville de Chicago. Restaurant en cercle, mais non tournant. Les tables sont presque toutes sur le bord de la fenêtre. Demandez-en une! Brunch de Paques vraiment excellent. Brioches, muffins, Salades originales, saumon fume delicieux, pattes de stone crabe, poisson, jambon, boeuf, omelettes faites devant vous, fromage divers et le standard avec oeufs, bacon, saucisses. La table des desserts est limitee mais tous tres bons. On cherche le pain, il n'y a pas de table pour ca et c'est dommage.
Par ailleurs relativement cher, mais on paye pour la vue fantastique et une table originale et delicieuse. Attention au Mimosa a 16$!
Bon appetit!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful eveningI entertained a business group (of 7) on Saturday, March 16th and had a wonderful experience. Some of us ordered the Chef's menu which was 5 (or 6) courses. Each course was better than the last. Some ordered off the menu and said their menu items (steaks, scallops) were some of the best they had ever had. The food was phenomenal!! Even better than the food was the service. Our server was extremely knowledgable and timely; our bartender was helpful with wine selections, and the head chef and owner all stopped by our table. I would have liked some lower priced wine options ( the cheapest bottle was $56!) but this is the only negative I coud find for the entire evening.Don't forget your wallet...this place will set you back a bit.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
