Great food and service. TheGreat food and service. The people we dined with wanted to come back again the next day!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty GoodMostly everything was pretty good. The short rib ravioli and the beef carpachio was my favorite. Could have done without the risotto...had too much mint flavor to it. Cocktails were very good. I thought overall everything was a bit over priced. While everything was really good, still not the best of anything I've ever had to warrent the type of bill it did. Service was great. Would come back for a special occasion or maybe for lunch.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful place!Nice atomosphere. Pleasant people. Great food...pea/mint risotto makes a terrific appetizer for the the table. May be too rich for an entree. Beet salad a real winner, among the best I've had. Swordfish special outstanding.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a good place to "share"It's a good place to "share" & try a variety of food. The small plate, big plate idea is fun. Salads are good for 2 people to share.
The seafood grilled plate was outstanding. Never had calamari stuffed with sausage. It was very different and good.
I will return.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Probably the best Short Rib ravioli I've ever had. Unfortunately, the noise level made it difficult to hear. There were only four of us sitting at a booth and we had to talk loudly to hear each other on the other side of the table. Although the food was wonderful, I probably won't go back because of the noise level. Nothing against the restaurant; I just prefer to have a quiter atmosphere.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a favorite of ours.This is a favorite of ours.

Jamie was a great waiter.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dinner at Gemini,We had a great dinner at Gemini, and loved the menu set up in "small" "medium" and "large". Two of us ordered a Large each and a side to share. The Butternut Squash Au Gratin is an incredible side, but may be seasonal. Our main courses were the Pork Chop with Butternut Bread Pudding and Brussell Sprout leafs (OMG)...and the Lamb Chops. My hubby felt there should have been 3 Lamb Chops vs 2 and he would have been happier. But all the tastes were really excellent. Our waitress was perfect, showed up at the right times and very knowledgeable.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA group of went to celebrateA group of went to celebrate a birthday and to take part in Chicago Chef's week. 2 out of 5 went with the fixed menu while the rest saw other amazing things on the menu we had to try. The food was outstanding. The server helped pair a perfect wine with dinner. If there was a separate rating for bartender/drinks/mixology this place would get a 6 our of 5 stars! Highlights of the group's night included a cucumber mint gin drink, great martini, the crab cakes, steamed mussels, shortrib ravioli, and the swordfish.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSound was a big problem.Sound was a big problem.

Food was excellent and they accommodated substitutions and special cooking requests perfectly. Server was excellent, efficient and checked in at appropriate intervals without being overly solicitous.
