Wonderful view of the city and beautiful resturant. Very intimate and wonderful place for a date night/special occasion. The food is very good and staff was nice. There was also a photographer who will take your picture. They'll print you out a photo in a to go frame for $12. Not sure if it's an everytime thing or maybe only Saturday nights.

"I love the ambiance of this place – unpretentious yet very classy. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The lobster bisque soup was amazing and the Mediterranean salad was refreshing. The Filet mignon was perfectly cooked. Service was well-timed and friendly-- quite a notable wine list."

You walk in off the elevator and you are immediately hit with the Skyline Views of Chicago which are breath taking...truly stunning from the 70th Floor. It was a really cold night but the hostess that greeted us brought a warmth and a smile that made things really welcoming and comfortable. We were taken to our table and immediately greeted by our Captain who was very knowledgeable and made the perfect suggestions ...Food was delicious, loved the filet mignon and lobster mac n chez. Service was exceptional, we could have not have asked for a more perfect night. Old school unpretentious fine dining at it's best...

Rather disappointing, especially as a first-time visitor to Chicago. My wife and I rapidly skipped passed the first two courses due to taste or lack thereof. Even the drinks were poorly made.

Felt bamboozled, even apologized to my wife for the poor decision. You’ve been warned.

Cite was not exactly what we expected. The view was spectacular IF you were seated by the window.. in a certain section. Not all seats are windows seats. It was not made clear when booking reservations that window seats are “first come, first serve” however you must make a reservation? The service was very poor and unorganized, courses were forgotten and we had to remind our waiter what dish was next. On top of that, the food was sub- par. For this expensive of a meal you expect a certain quality and standard. The value of the meal was not there and not worth the money. Lastly, because it was valentines Day, we had to pre pay in “full” for the dinner weeks before only to be hit with another bill at the end of the night that included gratuity, taxes, and beverages. Customers should be made aware of the possibility of any additional costs before going. There were several other customers we could hear raising concern about this.

Overall, for a what evening up being a $500 dinner, the meal was not worth the money spent. The best thing about the evening was the view (once we asked to be moved to an ideal window spot) it really was beautiful but your chances of having a great view was about 20%.

We will not be coming back, we hope more organization and clarification can help Cite becomes better experience.

We are glad we could accommodate with a window seat; The restaurant is round however, and allows for a great view from every table. Because of high demand on Valentine's Day Prepayment is required. Service Charges, Taxes & Beverages are always additional to our pre-paid prix fix menu and is always made clear at reservation, on the menu & all our collateral.

Worst service and the worst food I have ever had! We decided to come to Cité, off a recommendation from a good friend. The young hostess whom initially greeted us, was incredibly friendly. Then came an older women dressed in red who just said to us, “come on” and showed us to a table not near a window. There was a table near the view I had asked her about, and she replied, “oh that’s taken.” We sat down and minutes later, she was sitting another couple and offered them that same table she had told us was “taken!” I hate to be confrontational, and we just wanted to enjoy a nice dinner together for Valentine’s Day. Other couples around us were offered to wait by the bar until a table with a view opened up, or were sat down and then moved to a better view once it was available. We weren’t offered any of these choices. The food was not worth the prepaid price either! We paid $175 per person for subpar food. The duck breast tasted awful and was undercooked. The lobster bisque was merely flakes of lobster on a plate, with watered down gravy! When the server came, he definitely noticed we did not enjoy our food, and said nothing. A couple behind us, left abruptly when they got their food and complained about the quality. It was the most bizarre experience! We both opted for the filet mignon, expecting a marvelous steak, and we’re sadly disappointed once again. Never were we asked how everything was. Our entree’s took 30 minutes in between each course to come. We ordered 2 drinks ($16 each) from the menu, and once our bill came, it said $77 on top of the $350 We had already PREPAID! I have dined in various restaurants throughout the city and do not mind spending the money for a great experience and great food, but this was NOT worth the dollar amount!

My girlfriend and I went here for Valentine's day. Reservations and the 5 course prix fixe menu cost us $350 dollars. The food was absolutely not worth it. It was bland, her steak was cooked medium when ordered medium-rare, and everything else just seemed cheap. Even the cocktails were mediocre. When we got our check, we were overcharged for a round of drinks, and our very absent server assured us there was nothing he could do to take it off the check, even with a manager's help. He offered us his own money, but that's not the outcome we wanted. At the end of the night, we handed the girl from coat check our tickets, and she looked confused. She laughed and asked us to "point out your coats". Overall this was one of the worst restaurant experiences we've ever had! The view of the city was lovely though!

For the price well over 500$ and including a unsuspected service charge the service, food and general attitude of staff it is definitely not worth it. The restaurant is cold and when approached staff about it the staff told us we should have known better because it is cold outside. Given this is an upscale restaurant didn't think i would need to bring a space heater with me. The food is not cooked well enough meat is raw and not seasoned. Sorbet portion was the size of my thumb. Staff spilled drinks on our bags and kept running over our feet while delivering food. Our orders got mistaken and we're delayed several times. When politely approaching staff to give them some feedback they gave us attitude and were very condiscending. This restaurant really should re think it's strategy it is a shame to let the good view go to waste with such bad service and food.

It was my second time at Cite'. My first visit was with Friends and it was very good. I was impressed with the Food and presentation. The ambiance was really nice too. Food was served with class even though it was Restaurant week. My second visit was with my husband. I took him there co'z I was impressed on my first visit. My husband and I were not impressed. We had to wait for our food for a long time, food was ok and the service was kind of bad. We were there for almost 3 hours just because the food took so long and the food wasn't that great. If I recommend this place it's because of the view but service and food was really disappointing.

Absolutely gorgeous view of the city!!! Rather disappointed with my lobster tail. It was a bit mushy in some areas. Definitely not what I expected from Cite'. I have eaten there before and thoroughly enjoyed everything I consumed. This time, not so much. The only reason I did not pursue a correction is because we were there to celebrate a birthday and I did not want to tarnish the evening. I will say, however, the ravioli that accompanied the lobster tail was absolutely delicious! It made the lobster tail more palatable.

Went to this location for a birthday dinner. It was quiet and empty at 8:45pm. We were approached for drinks. The following person was a lady selling photos and offering to take different poses. She was demanding more than asking if we would like a photo. The food came pretty quickly and the service was great. We gave them a ticket to validate the parking and paid our ticket. He took the money and advised us that the check and parking was taken care of. We paid a $20 tip for our check.

We went to retrieve our car and they charged us for parking again. They advised that they have heard this happen before, but the parking downstairs is not included in anything affiliated with the restaurant. So practically the servers got a $40 tip for a $120 check.

I would recommend for the view and the food, but not to be scammed.
