It was Mother’s Day brunch. I made sure to get there on time. The experience was bad from the beginning. We got sat at a table that wasn’t what I requested. I noticed that there was no rose petals on the table that I paid $40 for. We got our order taken and were asked if we wanted any cocktails, but we didn’t. However, we weren’t offered anything else but the nasty tap water they were serving. I had asked for a medium rare steak and what I received was a very much rare steak. The chocolate covered strawberries were messy because the chocolate was melting. The waitress had not even checked on us to see how things were or if we needed anything. Between the main entree and dessert my mom almost fell because the front, left leg bent inward almost breaking. Pic attached. I was trying to order a pop. There was a gentlemen working that I had asked, but he asked who my waitress was instead. Not sure if he told her or not, but had my sister not stopped her while she walking by I wouldn’t have gotten it. Well I ordered a pop and it took a very long time to receive. When I finally received the pop, I noticed that there was something in the drink. Pic attached. By this time we were disappointed in everything and just wanted to leave so we asked some other man, who wasn’t our waiter, to take dessert to go. I wanted to make sure they knew of the chair and wanted to speak to the manager to receive my refund on the rose petal service that I didn’t receive. The host was giving me the run around telling me that I did receive it by the roses given. However, when I asked what the difference was in the tables that had rose petals on the table.. all she could tell me was,,“ it’s almost the same.” Made no sense to me. She then proceeded to tell me someone was going to call me the following day about my refund and it’s now Wednesday and I still haven’t received a call from “Cindy”. (Mother’s Day was Sunday) Now, if you ask me what we experienced was not worth $460.

Terrible experience in every way. Much like the Signature Room on top of the Hancock, Chicago locations with exceptionally good views end up being 'tied' up in agreements with friends of the owner, and therefore have no incentive to do anything well. Food was ok, but the service was the worst I have had in a restaurant in years. Too much negativity, I will top here. Great view, pathetic service.

Sampled the Mother's Day brunch. Great views and limited space make it quite pleasant. Some surprising waits for service. Vegetarians will have slim pickings, and vegans should eat before they arrive. Our party had a vegan -- a fact which was revealed at the time of the reservation, and upon arrival, and to two (or three?) other members of staff, but to little effect. On that score, the ineptitude was almost funny. Probably worth a visit for a special occasion.

Not impressed at all. Went for my fiancé’s birthday and was seated in a spot with a terrible view due to a structure underneath. Food was nothing special. There were two loud dehumidifiers running and in view - Wouldn’t recommend at all - Our waitress was very friendly.

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.

The setting, food and service were wonderful. Only negative is the cost/value side of things. However, this is the place you should go to treat yourself or those you love knowing it'll cost you a pretty penny. It is NOT meant to cater to those on a tight budget.

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

Beautiful view, excellent service but holy cow! It was super hot that it was very uncomfortable! No air conditioning, very humid place.
Evelyn our waitress was very nice but my gf had a horrible experience due to the heat. There was no fan but they had two coolers blowing on the other side.

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!!
