It was sub-par considering that I paid $160 per person for a special experience and the menu that is posted on the Cite website. When we arrived, the menu was pared down with less options. If I had known about this "bait and switch" strategy used by Cite, I would have never paid $320 for two which was a rip-off!

Cite Chicago was not worth $200 percent spent there ! The salad was a head of lettuce that they charge 16 with cheese and ceasar dressing. Something you could’ve made at home! The steak was tough and had a lot of fat on it ! You had no phone or internet reception at the 70th floor! Overall it is not worth the prices they charge you and better please to would be Steak 48

Our waiter was so amazing my girlfriend and I loved his enthusiasm and charisma. The food was amazing. The Fillet Mignon was perfectly done and the banana foster was exquisite as much as it was delicious; to top it off it was made right in front of us, it was quite the spectacle. Overall this was an amazing restaurant and I would definitely go there again.

Food was good but for the price, we would not do it again as a package. It was extremely hot in there which made it a little difficult to enjoy while pregnant but it was a nice view of the city.

I come here several times. And I love the view and ambiance. The only issue is, when it's hot out side. It's a suna inside. When it's 32 degrees outside, u feel the hawk inside. But overall, love this place because the food is excellent and the view is amazing

I hate to leave a bad response but I need to be honest! This was such a let down. I should have read the reviews and didn't so it was definitely my fault. The place had nice views of the city and the waitress, Evelyn, was really nice but other than that, it was a let down. The restaurant was very unpleasant to look at and the food was not good. I paid for the package that had rose petals on the table and roses and when we arrived, the hostess grabbed a takeout container of petals and snatched 2 roses off the hostess stand to set up the table. Are you kidding me? It was supposed to be a surprise for my husband. This experience was not worth the price. We swallowed our food so fast, and got the heck out of there. We weren't there a full hour! I have never left a restaurant so fast. Glad this wasn't our only dinner celebrating our anniversary. DON'T GO HERE!!

It was great! Food could have had more seasoning. And the menu needs more options. But overall it was nice! There was a photographer that could have been included with the reservation instead of paying extra. Also, the payment for reservations should go towards the meal

The ambiance is fantastic! Amazing views! Smooth music! Fun servers! The food was not worth the expensive romance reservation! I would have rather just had the drinks and enjoy the scenery. I recommend you change that menu or add more options. Definitely wasn’t worth the 160$ a person.

Pay that 20$ Per person reservation, save yourself 280$

Our table wasn’t set for the Romance Package when we got there, unfortunately, so they set it up while we were seated and then took a while to finally come back around and take our orders for food. Food was also *very* under seasoned. Other than that, staff was friendly, and view was great.

Everything was nice, but didn't see the point of a cover charge for the restaurant. Normally restaurant free to book... just have to reserve.

Cite
Responded on April 24, 2021

Dear LaShawn, Thank you for your feedback. The reasons for our cover charge are many. Due to Covid-19 we are at a forced capacity of 50%, this is main reason. The cover guarantees our guests will show as we buy food and staff according to the number of our reservations and if they do not show up we lose money. Last but not least we have the best views in Chicago and have been a fine dining icon in Chicago almost 50 years. There are other reasons operationally but these are the most relevant.

The restaurant was obviously an awesome location, and up scale feeling. The staff seemed friendly and very nice and helpful, the meal was amazing and delicious. The only issue is it seemed like there was some functional issues. You’d think having to pay a ticket fee to even get in, then make a reservation time, everything would be set perfectly and ready. When I arrived I was walked around to three different sections and tables trying to find a table for me to sit at. Finally they placed me at one that was dirty. After telling them, i was then placed at another table, a fourth time. The wait staff was very friendly and served right away, but seemed unorganized and unprepared. Not sure if it’s a management error or what.. the tables not having plates or silverware for food. Small things, but again seems like it should be all squared away before you arrive, considering it’s a $150 meal.

I have been going to Cite’ for over 20 years and it is just NOT the same, for this to be an upscale restaurant it has lost its “luster”. The last couple of times my food has been horrible. I ordered the NY strip and it was to thick and cold. The staff was pleasant but the uniformity for a high end restaurant was definitely missing. The servers were pleasant although at first we couldn’t tell who was who. Unfortunately for me this was my last visit. The views are still spectacular of course, but the amount of money spent on food that was not even mediocre is unacceptable.

The food was very dry and not ‘high end’ at all. The views on the 70th floor were nice. Also they are dishonest and charge you whatever they want on your card. Horrible place and horrible service and food. Overall I wouldn’t recommend If you are looking to get value for your money at this place.

Our table had a beautiful view of the city. And the service was amazing from the host to the server they went above and beyond. I would like to especially thank our server, Antonio. He did an amazing job at explaining what the dishes had, recommended us a wine that he enjoys as well, and had a very good energy that made feel really comfortable around him. Definitely will be asking for him when we go back!

We loved our server!Appetizers, main course of steak and lobster and our dessert were delicious as expected but I thought every veggie I had was either under cooked or over cooked and had no seasonings at all. I felt I could have made better at home which is disappointing with a bill over $500.
Also we love Cite but thought we got a crappy seat. We paid extra for rose petals which was worth the ambiance but I think a seat near the window would be expected.

My bf and I celebrsted our anniversary last Saturday. My friend recomnended this restaurant. While you don’t have to dress too formal, you can dress semi formal, dressy, and some guests dressed casual. We have a nice table with the best view close to the piano. The ambiance is very nice. I love the rose petals and roses on our table. The food was excellent. We are happy with the services. The food was pricey but its worth it when you celebrate it with the love of your life.
