    Best service I have seen in DuPage county. I love the location and how quiet this venue typically is. The staff is so good. The menu is deep and broad in comparison to other places for the same price point.

    Being a local premium steakhouse, CityGate provides a good dinning option for business setting and private occasion. Recent late night celebration dinner for our sporting event was good experience where the service is friendly, live music and decent menu options provided. while flounder can be more tender, the steak meat cooked just right, though the burger I wish they offered the cut, so it is easy for kids to manage.

    Unfortunately disappointed in this restaurant, although it has a nice atmosphere. Ordered the filet mignon ala Oscar style and steamed broccoli, meal was lukewarm nearly cold. When brought to the servers attention, he apologized mentioned they only had 2 runners on a Sat night and took my plate away. Mgr approached our table with apologies too and returned within minutes with the same steak which was reheated or seared to the point it now had a crunchy crust., btw Oscar sauce was still cold on the reseated steak. I’m was hoping for a beautiful dinner and unfortunately highly disappointed in how they handled this situation. We had to complain further with the mgr to which he agreed to compensate the meal entree. Not sure I’ll return, there are lots of better steak house options with exceptional service

    This is a great looking venue. It provides live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The music is generally jazz or popular played at a level which will not interfere with your dining experience. There is a small dance floor which allows for some limited dancing. It really isn't the place to go for dancing but, it is not discouraged. The food is outstanding as is the service.

    We had a table of 6 adults and a 9 month old! They accommodated us all with a great “ out of the way” table! Food was AMAZING! My husbands pork chop was over cooked to his liking so they immediately took it back and brought him another cooked perfectly! Not only that…. they then brought our table a bottle of wine compliments of them! Total CLASS ACT!

    After ordering our meal it took over an hour to receive it. Orders from the bar were slow in coming. When meal arrived, the fish was hot but vegetable side dishes were lukewarm, however the flavor was very good. Usually service is very good. Perhaps short staffed was the reason.

    My 1sr experience at CityGate. The steak was perfectly prepared, moist and and very tasteful. Same for the bacon wrapped shrimp. Great 1st experience and was pleased that they offered some nicer wines by the glass. Topped off with easy listening of jazz from the Lenny Capp Trio. Great evening and will definitely be back
