We had a fish dinner and a Greek dinner. Both were very good. The service was spot on, could not have been better.

We have lived in Naperville for the past 5 years. Hands down, City Gate Grille is our favorite for NUMEROUS reasons:
1) Chef Adam is amazing - the food is always excellent
2) The staff is fantastic - everyone makes us feel like we are welcome and with family (ask for Miguel if you want the best waiter in Naperville)
3) The ambience - very different from most of the other restaurants in Naperville. Often with great live music
4) Kid friendly - our daughter is 8 and LOVES City Gate. It is our "family date night" go-to!!!!

This was my first visit to Capital Grille and was very impressed. The waiter was friendly and pleasant. The menu was outstanding, and the food was very tasty. The ambiance was inviting and the jazz band had it going on. :) Overall, it was a nice experience and I will return.

I go here often for the service and food. The calming and relaxing environment are great as well which only makes for a better meal. I've been here once during the live music and a couple people got up to dance which was fun you watch as well. Highly recommend!

This is my favorite restaurant in Naperville. It is great all the way around. I hesitated to try it about 5 years ago but have always been glad I did. I tell many people about it . I even gave a favorite table. The host or hostess always knows where to seat me and my party.

There was a band playing in this wide open room. You could barely converse. The waitress was the bright spot of the evening. She was quick and friendly. The filet was expensive for the quality of the steak. It was undercooked, chewy, and FATTY. Which is surprising. Ive never had a filet that was fatty. Overall. SoSo experience. Expensive meal for a TGI F.... kind of steak.

We had a wonderful experience. The food was great but what really made our night special was our server John. He made us feel welcome and was very attentive in every way. Thanks so much. We’ll be back.

There are far many better steak houses. The 22 oz ribeye we ordered was underseasoned (even though we ordered it blackened) and over cooked. We ordered medium rare and it was barely medium. All of the food was underwhelming. Perry's Steakhouse in Oakbrook is a much better choice in my opinion. If you like live music, however, GityGate meets that bill. Not our cup of tea. Not a fan of loud music while dining. Very difficult to have a conversation. On the plus side, we were given a complimentary dessert for my birthday and the chocolate cake was delicious.

Selected this establishment based on the reviews. This was probably the worst steak I have had ever. We both ordered the 14 oz ribeye medium rare and salads. The salads arrived within 2 minutes of our orders being placed the steaks minutes later and they were both overcooked and we didn't even finish our salads. Apologies were made and new steaks prepared, which in the end were cooked fine. The problem is two-fold: 1. The steaks are cut to thin, so they cook fast. 2. The master steak chef they had recently left. The salad was fine, the bread and rosted garlic was a nice touch. But would I go back, NOPE. There are too many other choices in the area.

If you are an oyster freak, you must try the lightly grilled oysters on the half shell. I defy you to eat just six.

Service and food was excellent as always. Our server was Ben, his recommendations were spot on. Enjoyed the seafood chowder/soup with potatoes, carrots, and celery - it was fantastic. After dozens of meals with City Gate, I tried the Roasted Chicken, it was amazing!

The service was awesome. Never had to wait for a cocktail or water. Waitress was very attentive. Had great suggestions for appetizers and entrees. The steak was cooked beautifully and was very tasty. The risotto was to die for. The calamari was lightly breaded and very delicious. Will be back soon!
