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.
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!!!
The food was very expensive yet poor quality. Tasteless!! The waiter was rude at the end of our ‘dining experience’!!
Cute booth for four people but loud and way too dark. Got apps and variety of entrees. All decent but nothing stood out. We came for the carrot cake as bday girl’s favorite dessert- it was pretty good. But Won’t be back as way too many good places to try out over this satisfactory dining spot
Food was very good. Marrow rich and must be shared. Foie gras was excellent. Accompanying bread fabulous. Gnocchi excellent as were the Brussels sprouts. Whitefish was good but could have benefited from a small garni. You must order the Lemon meringue pie!
Amazing dinner romantic setting great place for a date!
Had heard so many things about Gilt Bar and wanted to give it a try. The menu didn't offer any options if you're trying to eat healthy. I wound up ordering the chicken and it was very fatty. Nice vibe to go and get a drink but wouldn't go back here for dining.
Near perfect service - thank you for making my birthday special!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and we loved every aspect of this restaurant. The hostess was welcoming from the second we walked in, the service was great and we loved the food. The atmosphere was unique and romantic. We would definitely recommend!
Went to Chicago to celebrate wedding anniversary. A friend suggested we look at Gilt. Made the reservation and could not be happier. The food (jalapeno cornbread, smoked whitefish caesar and beef strogonoff) was phenomenal. The cocktails were great too - they do not skimp on the alcohol. The hostess and servers were friendly, polite and non-intrusive. Server checked on us accordingly and allowed us time to ourselves. Loved the neighborhood. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful spot for almost any occasion and the library downstairs is especially wonderful for more intimate meals. Ambiance is solid either upstairs or down, food is always great and the staff really knows their stuff
Servers are always great but the ladies greeting you at the door are blah. It won't hurt to smile and be a bit friendly guys
I've been to Guilt Bar a couple times now and have not been disappointed. It does get very loud when the restaurant is full, but the noise isn't bad on a week night. The food and drink are both really great. This last visit I brought my uncle and cousin who were visiting, and they both loved eating out at a place tourists wouldn't necessarily find. I would (and do!) highly recommend trying this restaurant out!
Interesting menu, phenomenal food/cocktails, and outstanding service. Will be back!
The food was excellent and the staff was very responsive and willing to help make our experience a great one
We arrived about 20 minutes early for our reservation, but they were able to seat us immediately. Cocktails and dishes were all quite enjoyable and prices are very reasonable. After dinner we went to the Library, the bar in the basement for more drinks. The mood downstairs was more subdued and relaxing. Date night was a success!
Me and three of my friends went just for some appetizers and everything was great! Came out quick, hot and the service was excellent!
Great vibes in downstairs library. Amazing menu and food that didn’t disappoint
We had just gotten engaged an hour ago and they made our dinner feel incredibly special!
Great food and great vibe
The food was outstanding but our initial greeting by an unhappy hostess put a damper on the rest of the experience. She needed an attitude adjustment and it was only 6:30!
Excellent food, great service! I will be back asap.
We had reservations and were seated right away.
The food was great and the service was wonderful. The waitress was able to modify our order to delete an ingredient we didn’t want.
The food was great! And our server surprised us with free dessert (as we were celebrating our anniversary). Very sweet
Amazing service and accommodations! They went above and beyond! Have complimentary sides and Champagne as we were celebrating! New go to date spot
