The wife and I went on a date night and City Gate Grille was perfect choice for proximity, the great food selection, atmosphere, and service. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
When we want to go someplace special, we choose Citygate grille. The ambiance is perfect. We look for the nights with live jazz. The food is amazing! We got waited on hand and foot, but also were given space to enjoy our meal and the music.
Always a favorite for a romantic dinner, the food is always spectacular and well prepared. Its one of my favorite places for dinner no matter what the occasion. We also enjoy the $5 Burgers and $5 Mules on Monday nights.
Valentine’s Day. Food was really good. The atmosphere and table set up was not great. It was a little too bright, nothing interesting in decor, and some of the tables had table clothes and others didn’t. Also, on Valentine’s Day with a reservation for 2 people, they sat us at a slightly large table across from each other. Not a very intimate set up. There were smaller tables with cloths and candles all around the perimeter of the room, and then these clunky tables in the middle. Just sort of strange. Otherwise, food was really good, our server was nice and efficient , albeit talked a little too fast and too quiet. Overall it was a pretty good experience.
We enjoyed a nice Valentines Day dinner. Liked the guitarist in the bar before dinner!
We've never had a meal that failed to deliver here. Quality from starters to dessert.
We love CityGate Grille - now that our kids are older and pick their birthday dinner location - this is the spot - always delicious food and excellent service - as we were leaving the band was just getting started - so the vibe was picking up! My go to is either there duck (YUM!!) or their short ribs are always delicious - my 2 kids got the Lobster special and my wife had the branzino - all raved about their selections!
Loved this place! The staff were so accommodating and very attentive. The food was amazing. We both had the duck and it was cooked perfectly. Fair price for the quality and size of the meal. Will be back for sure!
Normally we love this place, but our last visit was a disappointment. Service was not up to par and we weren't really in love with the entertainment. The entertainment has a following we were told and so the restaurant was pretty busy. Maybe that is why our service was lacking? Not sure but we will stay away for a bit.
We love City Gate and we live in Warrenville so it's nice to have a really great restaurant a few minutes away. The food is fantastic and the music is always first rate.
