    Group concensus Food was good for the most part French onion soup - overpriced - broth consistency too thick made get have been a cheese issue- onions too hard. Perch was delicious.. light… not too fried- flaky Apple pie dessert was amazing!

    Initially we were seated in a very foot traffic heavy part of the restaurant, so we asked to be moved to the kitchen counter. They were very courteous and accommodating and quickly moved us. We got there before the brunch rush and server was very good at explaining things. The prep guy saw we had ordered a dish with the goat fondue cheese on the side, he kindly explained to us the importance of the sauce to the dish and gave us a small ramekin of the sauce to try. While I did not end up adding it to the dish, I was grateful for this and could see how it could affect to the dish. Unfortunately, I really dislike goat cheese and had each but had goat cheese flavor, I would not have been as happy with it. The kitchen guys were great, a well oiled machine, it was impressive watching them ramp thing up as the rush came and went.

    My partner and I were visiting Chicago for the first time and we were told that Gibsons is a MUST! We had an incredible experience to say the least. Our server, Angel was the best! Walked us through the menu and steak cuts plus the aging process and difference between them all. Gibsons is now a must do every time we return to Chicago. This was truly one of the best dining experiences all around for us and can’t wait to be back. Thank you Gibsons team for making our celebration so special!

    Le Colonial has the benefit of a 5 Star "starting point" simply because it is my wife's favorite restaurant in Chicago. To qualify this, my wife has excellent taste, so, you could argue that my 5 Star proclivity is warranted..... Beyond that though, the elegant environment with soft lighting, formal (but not stuffy) decor, and an overall soothing & seductive ambiance. The service is attentive & we have enjoyed exploring the menu which never fails to delight. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely wonderful! We particularly enjoyed the seafood tower and steak and eggs, both topped with generous helpings of caviar. Service and wine list were also impeccable. We’ll be back!

Discover Gold Coast

Located north of the Chicago River along the shores of Lake Michigan, the neighborhoods of Streeterville and the Gold Coast developed as affluent areas in the wake of the Chicago Fire in the late 19th century. Today, these neighborhoods boast family entertainment centers, fine museums and a variety of restaurants for everyone to enjoy. Families can delight in the fun and festivities along the Navy Pier with burgers, fish and fresh baked goods for nourishment. Going inland in Streeterville, the dining gets a bit more upscale with Chicago deep dish pizzerias and Polish sausage on every corner. Heading north to the Gold Coast will get you fine dining and international food territory. Tender steaks, tapas bars and French cuisine are among the hidden gems.
