We were celebrating our Anniversary. Our server, Miguel, was outstanding. He helped to make the dinner special. The food was amazing. The scallop appetizer was incredible. We have fined here several times and have never been disappointed.

Our first time a CityGate Grille. Three of us had our Thanksgiving dinner there. The food was excellent. I loved the roasted Brussels sprouts and my sister and husband like the ham and green beans. Dessert was the delicious pumpkin pie for them, and I had the vanilla cheesecake. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We liked the design of the space. We plan to return soon.

Dinner at CityGate has always been a lovely surprise. Calamari was excellent, as was the beet salad and avgolemono soup! Lamb shank and rack of lamb were well prepared, as were the sides. Some of the entrees tend to be a bit pricey, but there are some lovely moderately priced dishes. Monday was a very quiet night, but other nights have music. All in all, another good dinner at CityGate.

When we first got there it was a long time between seating and drink orders. Then a long time between when they took drink orders and they were served. Then awhile until they took our orders and food was delivered. We stayed until they closed and music was lovely. Food good.

This is the perfect restaurant to make everyone happy. They have a wide variety of high quality food, from decadent to healthy. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. This environment blends the comforts of casual dining with the nuances of fine dining. Live music is also fun to enjoy in the bar area. Definitely a place you will want to return to again.

Not impressed. They called themselves a steak house yet I had to send mine back twice since they couldn't get medium rare correct. The view is either of the sports playing in the bar or the traffic on I88. They didnt even acknowledge our anniversary or apologize for me sitting there with no food for so long while my boyfriend was done eating. Then the manager was rude and condescending when I called them on it. They need to go to hospitality training.

We live nearby and have passed CityGate so many times coming on and off I-88 so we finally decided to give it a try. I must say we were missing out!! Not only is the restaurant itself a beautiful set up, but the service and food were both top level. The live music was wonderful in the background - not overpowering at all, just nice ambience to enjoy while eating our meal. Couldn’t have been more impressed with our first time here. The menu is on the pricey end but it’s no more expensive than any other higher end steak/seafood place we’ve been to in Naperville and I would say this is at the top of my list now. Definitely coming back again soon!

City Gate Grille was a perfect location for our friends get together. Our entrée choices varied from a seafood special, a meatloaf special, a hamburger platter and a salmon selection, All dishes were prepared to our taste. Our service was timed well and sufficient for our needs. We dine at City Gate Grille often, as it is located between our two groups of friends, and the pricing is an excellent value.

First time here at the suggestion of one of our dinner companions. I never knew this restaurant was in an area I frequently drive through. Menu was focused, but with a nice variety of options. We shared appetizers of stuffed shrimp, crab cakes & calamari. The calamari was a little small, but the shrimp & crab cakes were delicious. Two of us had the Cajun Mahi/Pasta dish, and our companion had the mousaka—fresh and large portions. Overall a solid meal, and I would definitely dine here again.

This was our first time there. It was our wedding anniversary. We were greeted by the hostess who wished us a happy anniversary. Service was great. Scott was our waiter and did a great job of answering questions about the menu and presenting specials. The food was excellent. We both had tenderloin medallions with garlic shrimp and fresh vegetables. Everything was cooked just right. They also gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. Definitely going back.

As always, CityGate Grille was a joy to visit. The food was outstanding, service was great. We had indicated that it was our anniversary when making our reservations. After our meal we were surprised with a complimentary dessert, which of course was delicious. We will certainly be back again.
