What Insiders Are Saying
No doubt Gilt Bar is sceney, but it's still delicious and a bit luxurious. Prepare yourself for a lot of meat, butter, and salt.
Food was excellent!
This was my first time here and had a great evening. The service was top notch and the food was good. Everything can be shared, so it's great for a group. We will be back.
Good food, just turn up the lights. It’s awfully dark in there. Awesome deboned and grilled half chicken.
The food and drinks were awesome. The only down side was that the hostess said she would seat us in the library after dinner, so the whole dinner we were so excited to get drinks there after. Unfortunately when we approached the hostess after dinner, she told us there was at least a 2 hour wait, so we were a bit bummed leaving the restaurant. Other than that, the evening was fantastic.
Really dark inside, decent food. Nice relaxing ambience.
This is by far my favorite restaurant in Chicago. Best service, best food, always ask to sit in the library & they always accommodate. My vegetarian husband loves it too which is a huge bonus.
Our service was awesome- our waitress gave us many recommendations around Chicago and the food was to die for! Unforgettable experience
Birthday. Thank you!
Carl our waiter was amazing!!!
We made a reservation at Gilt Bar before a show at the CIBC theater. They were efficient, service was wonderful, and the food was very good quality. The truffle pasta and the Gnocchi with butternut squash were both awesome. If you’re looking for dessert, I highly recommend the Brownies with Ice cream - it comes with 3 delicious warmed brownies and vanilla bean ice cream on top
delicious lobster roll, nice wine, but service was slow, and extremely loud, so difficult to converse
Great time, food was delicious, and the drinks were wonderful. My boyfriend and I loved the ambiance.
We sat outside. They forgot we were out there. I had to ask for a server. Took 30 min for appetizer. Overall service was very slow. Food was salty. No mention of birthday. Too bad as we just live down the block.
Beautiful interior, set, and ambience. Quick and on-point, excellent service.
Excellent evening. Service was great and the food was top notch.....
Amazing food. Great vibe. Will come back again in the near future!
Hostess was very outgoing and energetic, engaged with all of the customers very well. I also love the wine list and food menu. Since I work around the corner - this place gets frequented by me and my friends a lot.
The comfortable library ambiance, attentive (but not intrusive) service, the menu selections, and the nicely presented and delicious food were a hit. .. And don't miss the cornbread!
wait staff and management were extremely friendly and helpful. food was very good as well.
Great hosts very accommodating
Went to the Library at Gilt Bar with some friends. First time and loved the atmosphere! The Library is what I invision when I go to a great ambiance "old" feel Chicago lounge. Wonderful food, service and hand crafted cocktails! Would highly recommend if you're in the area and want a nice atmosphere to relax and have great conversations with friends and Lovey.
Cool spot. Service was great. Get the meatball!!
Fantastic experience dining in the Library. Great atmosphere and some of the best food we have had in Chicago.
The restaurant was extremely busy and very loud! It was difficult to have a conversation during dinner. However, the service was great and the food was very tasty with large portions.
Strong recommendation. We were on a date and seated towards the front. We asked to be moved to a quieter area and even though it was very busy, the staff went out of the way to make our evening special. Staff was outstanding! Food was outstanding! Ambience in the back was 5 star
Absolutely loved our experience! Everyone remembered it was our wedding anniversary and treated us to a glass of champagne and a free entree! Thank you so much for making our first wedding anniversary so special - we will be back!
Creative, well prepared great food, good service and an enchanting environment.
Excellent all around experience!
Truffle pasta & the Library. Beautiful.
Amazing food! You really can’t go wrong. However, the service is unbelievably slow.
Too dark. Too noisy. Greasy pasta. Medium fresh mussels. Better value elsewhere.
I couldn’t be happier about our experience at Gilt Bar! Everything was delicious. The service was incredible. They really go above and beyond here. We will definitely be back!
Too noisy and too salty.
It was a memorable evening of great mussels, memorable conversations, and phenomenal hospitality.
The food was delicious! The pork belly over grits dish is amazing!
Gilt Bar was great. I was actually there 2x this weekend and my only complaint is that the basement smelled like mold/mildew. I have never noticed it before but I was with someone that actually refused to eat there bc of the smell. He said if they can't keep the basement clean I don't want to know about the kitchen.
Good food, good ambiance and friendly service. Very good experience overall!
Great service and food. They even have a superb gluten free menu!
The service was phenomenal! The ambience is lovely. My only wish is there were more food options on the menu.
We are from California, came for a trade show.
Open table descriptions was right on.
Food fantastic, Carl our waiter was awesome!
Very helpful with dinner selections.
Hope to come back!
So much fun and great food!!!
