Another outstanding dinner, even on the patio when the temp. outside was 46 degrees. With the heaters and the mostly enclosed structure, it was quite tolerable! The Seafood Cappellini was wonderful, as was the Apple Cake dessert.
It was amazing! The food was delicious, our drinks were really good and our waitress went above and beyond to make our experience special!
Great service and food! The outdoor seating was heated to a perfect temperature level, even in 40 degree weather. Five stars to the staff, management and owners for providing great food while keeping everyone safe!
Food was good as usual. This was our first dine-in experience here since the pandemic. We dined on the patio. The service was good, though our server was clearly tired. They were out of the desert on the special, but the bourbon pound cake was delicious.
It felt very safe to eat at in theses times. All the workers wore gloves and masked. The other dinners also wore mask when they weren’t at the table
While the outside dining felt appealing at first it proved to be a bad choice. Lighting was atrocious (had to use our phones flashlight feature to read the menu) and diners who came after us and sat right next to our table (when there was plenty of room to be socially distanced) were loud and obnoxious. Food was very good as was the service but apparently the pandemic has affected their profit margin since prices seemed to be quite higher than we remember versus the last time (pre-pandemic) we were here. I would recommend but with the caveats mentioned in this review.
Great way to celebrate the end of summer and closing of indoor dining. So sad, but hope back open again real soon.
This was our first time at City Gate Grille and it was to celebrate my wife's birthday. The staff if very friendly and out going. The food we had was delicious and are planning to go back.
Kristen was our waitress and she was awesome. She was very friendly and helpful she made our first view absolutely perfect. We have already recommended City Gate Grille to our family and friends.
Wow!!! I love this restaurant! Food was excellent. Our waiter Scott, should teach a class for serving 101, because he was beyond excellent! Made my sweeties date, so nice! Thank you
Food was amazing!! Got cold pretty quick due to us being out on the patio with high chilled winds..all in all it was great!! Still gets 5 STARS!!
The food at City Gate Grill was delicious! We celebrated our anniversary and the service was excellent! We will gladly return!
The food portions were extremely small. The food did not taste well.
Service was GREAT, food EXECELLENT, I think City Gate Grill is the best place to eat in Naperville.
Dine here a few times. The chef, Adam is wonderful. He makes sure you enjoy your meal. Will return.
Celebrating my birthday. Would have been nice to get a small slice of cake or scoop of ice cream but I understand business is slower now.
We were celebrating my birthday and wanted a restaurant with outdoor dining. The tent was perfect especially with the nearby heater. Food was delicious especially the Praline Pound Cake dessert!
Great waiter and wonderful meal and ambiance
Our meal was fantastic! Oysters were fresh and delish- scallops & steak were cooked to perfection. Atmosphere is nice but not stuffy. Our server was top notch- efficient while providing great service. Highly recommend
Food, atmosphere and service all outstanding as usual.
We enjoy going to City Gate Grille. The food for the most part was good. The main entree Steak & Mushroom Risotto had some flavor of burnt veggies that carried over into the majority of the dish. The butternut squash soup was wonderful. The waiter was very nice and accommodating but he appeared to have too many tables.
Service average. Food good. Atmosphere really nice, dined outside only 3 occupied tables.
The food at City Gate is amazing. We had the appetizers of tenderloin skewers and bacon shrimp. Both were delicious. The staff is even better. Our server Miguel was friendly and attentive. The Covid protocols are meticulously followed.
Always a consistent and pleasurable meal at CityGate.
Stopped in for lunch this time.
We’ll be Back!!!!
This was the first that me & my lady went out in months due to the Covid-19 situation & let me just say that I couldn’t be more impressed with the steps that they’ve made in order to not only adjust with the times that we find ourselves in, but the service that was provided could not have been better. When you first enter in, with a mask of course, you’ll step on this very cool machine that takes your temperature to make sure you’re not ill - takes about 10 seconds & then you’re good to go. I actually dined inside & it was a nice intimate setting & quite frankly, a nice change of pace from the usual noise that comes with being in a restaurant. The capacity was limited & other people were seated quite of bit of distance away from from me. Waiters/waitresses all had on masks & maintained their distance which was great to see them following protocol. Now with that out of the way, the food was absolutely delicious. Needless to say I’ll definitely be going back very soon because they truly deserve the support from everyone. 5 stars for sure.
Service and food is always top notch
Very pleasant experience. Excellent service. Beautifully prepared dishes and thoughtful food presentations. An oasis of fine dining. Highly recommend and will be back.
As always, this restaurant delivered delicious food and drinks! Service was excellent and it is one of our favorite go-to's whether it is just a night out for us or an occasion with friends or family. Highly recommend Citygate!
Delicious food and drinks! Our server was Miguel! He was fantastic! We are happy to come back and get outstanding service !!! Highly recommend it!!
While this restaurant can be expensive I have never found it to be overpriced. I always know that I am going to eat amazing quality food as well as very generous portions of side dishes including appraisers and salads. When I need to have a quiet romantic date night with my wife City Gate is always my go to.
Miguel was an awesome server, food was great! Will come back
It was great to see Miguel and Chef Adam again! The food and service is second to none! Great job to everyone at City Gate! See you soon.
We ate outside where they had a nice heater nearby. The service was excellent: the server got a cushion for me when I mentioned that the metal chair was very cold. We had a delicious meal and would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
Terrific restaurant! Wonderful food, excellent desserts, attentive and friendly service! We felt really safe with the Covid safety measures that they’ve taken.
Loved the lamb, the sirloin risotto, the salmon, and of course the steaks! The pecan cake was outstanding!
Great cocktails as well!
Returned for the midweek seafood special. Excellent seared tuna. Nice bottle of wine and pleasant temps on the patio. Pretty good finish to the day.
The calamari appetizer was perfectly fried - so tender and tasty! We both enjoyed our lunches and would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a nice lunch!
Bacon wrapped shrimp is a yummy appetizer! Outdoor patio is beautiful and they have warmers for those possible chilly evenings.
Outstanding as always! Our server Scott always does a great job!
Loved the service and excellent food.
Will be back.
Great family time, our waiter Miguel was very attentive and provided excellent service. Food was very good. My only complaint was allowing customers to come in shorts baseball hat and gym shoes. I understand that revenues are needed, however I have always dined here as it it was considered a little on the upscale side. Dress code should be enforced. Especially for the $$$ to dine. That was a turn off!
