What Insiders Are Saying
Gemini Bistro is the kind of place where everyone feels like a regular, whether you actually are or not.
Gemini proves once again that it is at the top of its game. In a city where restaurants are the stars, Gemini is a stand out neighborhood spot and destination restaurant where one can dine again and again.
Very average. Eggs Benedict was tasteless and luke warm—needed seasoning. Latte came luke warm as well, even though I sent it back to be reheated.
Delicious food and really cute ambiance. Would return
Came for brunch on a Saturday early afternoon with my teen kids. We came here because they had a great dish at the GCM bbq. Service was rather cold, wouldn't know my server's name because she didn't provide it. Food was outstanding though. Will come for dinner and hope for a better service experience.
We love Gemini, but we did feel very rushed. Our server was great and we love the neighborhood ambiance with such great food. They brought over the starters two minutes before bringing out the main course and kept trying to clear before we were finished. Just felt very rushed.
Very good server. Food very fresh.
SUPERB as always!
If not for the noise level, this would be one of my favorite restaurants. The food and service are consistently excellent, but the noise level is more than uncomfortable. I feel like I can only go when I can sit outside. Too bad. It is a great restaurant.
Hidden neighborhood Gem(ini), one of the better all around restaurants in the city of Chicago
Our favorite dinner spot when we visit Chicago! Don’t pass on the homemade Oreo dessert.
Food was exquisite and our server could not have been more accommodating to my dietary restrictions. The brussel sprouts appetizer was great, and I try them everywhere :) And the burger was juicy and perfectly seasoned. Warm staff and great atmosphere for a date night but still busy and buzzing vibe! We loved it so much we stayed for lattes!
Gemini is our favorite go-to place, for any occasion. This was just a Friday dinner out and we love that they welcome our dog on the outside terrace. The staff is super nice and the food is always amazing. The drink assortment is awesome too!
We had a fantastic meal at Gemini last Sunday evening and enjoyed dining on the patio. Great service and delicious meals. We will be back!
This was our second visit in a few weeks to enjoy the Sunday special of fried chicken. Everything about this dish is phenomenal. We also had the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy their patio dining. The rest of the menu is always good, but this Sunday special is awesome.
So much fun for our Saturday night dinner!
We had the best experience at Gemini. I’ve been here quite a few times and I wanted to show my parents, who were visiting, some of my favorite spots. My dad, a big foodie, absolute loved the swordfish entree and my mom was ecstatic about her meal as well. Our server was super knowledgeable about the menu and times the dishes perfectly. Thanks for making this night a special one!
Amazing! Everyone enjoyed their food. Will be back!
We live in the neighborhood and Gemini is our go to during the week. With a busy holiday weekend coming up, we wanted to celebrate our 6-year anniversary fairly low-key, so figured what better place than Gemini. We made a 7:30pm reservation and requested outdoor seating. Outdoor seating is first come/first serve so we ended up waiting about 15 minutes for a table. We spent this time at the bar, where we sat at least 5-7 minutes without a bar tender even glancing at us, without a menu and obviously without drinks . Finally he realized be had missed us and came over and got us our drinks, but no apologies. He was also so slow and seeing that we were ready to pay, we had to flag alone else down. Once seated, our server was very nice. She recognized we were celebrating an anniversary and congratulated us. What happened from here is where things turned. We ordered an appetizer, salad and main to split. The appetizer and salad came fairly promptly. Both were delicious. We then went at least 30 minutes without any food coming, I had to flag down our waitress for another drink and when she got my drink order she said “let me bring you the dessert menu”. When she returned with the drink- maybe 10 minute later, I asked if she had reimbursed our burger (yes, our main was just the burger). And she said oh yes, I just checked on it. Long story short a dinner that should have taken an hour tops, dragged out 2.5 hours. No apologies, no complimentary items to make up for the wait, nothing. It was an extremely frustrating.
Favorite neighborhood spot. Consistently great food, service and ambiance.
Delicious food, lovely outdoor patio, fantastic service! Well done - Nice night!
We sat outside and the weather was perfect. Todd, our waiter, was as attentive as you would want him to be and our busboy, who did not give us his name, was awesome. The food, as always, was delicious. Not our first visit and certainly not our last.
Gemini's always a pleaser . . . Charlotte was a knowledgeable and friendly waitress.
We like Gemini quite a bit. Its a very nice neighborhood choice for us. The drinks and food and wine selections are all very good, However they are slightly pricier than many of our other similar favorites by about 15-20%. Whenever we dine there we say this place is great why don't we come here more often and then the bill comes . . .
Amazing food and staff!
Group of eight. Everyone loved it.
Food was very good but not enough vegan options for a restaurant if that caliber. Service was delightful and the place is lovely.
Service was terrible and everything took forever. We sat at our table for 30 mins before receiving our drinks. Food took even longer.
My pasta was not warm like usual
Service was average
Dinner at Gemini was fun, the food was delicious and our waiter was very nice. We had a lovely, fun dinner. There is a good vibe at Gemini. Loved it and will go back again.
LOVED everything. From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt welcomed and “part of the family”. This was our first visit and nothing disappointed. The food was wonderful; the staff was friendly and helped our party of five through the menu. His suggestions were spot on. Looking forward to a return visit.
Neighborhood gem. Reliable. Dependable. Great food that is also interesting.
Thank you Rebecca
Always so accommodating
Excellent server! We had a great time chatting with her and her service was excellent!
Awesome, you won’t be disappointed! Cocktails great, but beer menu could offer more variety.
Two weeks in a row. Still awesome!
Great food, server was knowledgeable. We did have to wait 25 mins for our reservation and since the atmosphere was so lively, we had to shout to hear each other in conversation.
Beautiful night, quiet sidewalk seating, very nice service & excellent food!!
We were able to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful night. Food and service was terrific
Uncomfortable seating, long wait for food, tiny portions. the place is overcrowded, with tables next to each other and lots of people standing all over.
Excellent food beautiful out on the terrace
