What Insiders Are Saying
Gemini Bistro is the kind of place where everyone feels like a regular, whether you actually are or not.
Normally I love Gemini’s food. First time for brunch. Food was lukewarm and not very tasty. Service was slow.
We just moved to the neighborhood and were thrilled to find such a delicious place within walking distance. We will absolutely be back!
Dinner was fabulous - service was excellent. We will be back!
It was St. Patrick's Day and I had corned beef and cabbage, probably the best I've ever had. My wife loved her short rib. Haven't been here for a long time and delighted that it remains first-rate. Only issue was that we were charged more for a bourbon on the rocks than for another one our party had straight up. We were told that's customary in Chicago. We've lived in Chicago all our lives and never had this experience before.
We’ve been to Gemini before and had a good meal. This time was completely disappointing: Great starters— nachos, beet salad and gem salad (although expensive for the portion size) but awful mains— eggs Benedict’s English muffins were hardly toasted and very soggy, hollandaise sauce was flavorless and the “hash” was two tablespoons of potatoes/onions and one chopped piece of a bell pepper in desperate need of seasoning. Such a waste of money - do not waste your time eating here.
Delicious options. A bit overpriced but worth it.
Amazing burger and the best wedge salad I’ve ever had. I’d definitely go back, after saving up a bit.
Everything was soooo savory. We had a great time in a booth in the back. The noise level was perfect. Regular voice levels. Their apps were fantastic, great portions, and you just kept going back for another bite.
Waiter was super friendly and provided excellent information on wines, food, tastes, you name it he could have answered it.
Everything was phenomenal from the food to the service!
We had the meatballs/octopus/and does chicken special.
Outstanding from start to finish!
Great place, very clean and monochromatic aesthetic, pleasant service. I only wish the menu had a few more options to choose from, I felt a little limited.
We love Gemini. It's the perfect place to go after our concert performances in Lincoln Park -- thanks for keeping the kitchen open late! We were glad to see it was busy on a Friday night, but we LOVE it on Thursday evenings when it's less busy.
Met a friend for dinner Ate at the bar. We all had burgers. Delicious! Service was tip top.
Gemini was delicious and the service was exceptional. We left with very full bellies and enjoyed every bit of food we ordered! I highly recommend Treating yourself to a night out!
We eat at Gemini often. It’s one of our favorite places. Love the Sunday fried chicken but the last 2 times I had it the biscuit and the potatoes were barely warm and not as good as usual. I feel like their service is slipping too. We had a new waiter and he was very inattentive. Disappointing
My husband and I ate at Gemini on a Saturday evening and had a wonderful experience! We ordered the proscuitto & burrata (which was incredible, I am drooling thinking about it and would go back to Gemini JUST for this dish), the brussel sprouts, the grilled octopus and the cesar salad with chicken. We finished the meal with the tarragon crem brulee. The brussel sprouts could have benefited from a little more crispiness, but the flavors were totally spot on. The octopus and the cesar were both delicious, the added chicken was a little dry and I would skip it next time and keep the salad as it is on the menu. The crem brulee was very unique and I would definitely recommend trying it! They have a nice selection of wines by the glass and bottle as well. 5 stars!
Gemini was great. The lamb shank special were outstanding. The grilled Spanish Octopus and the empanadas were great. The Thai Curry Mussels might have been the best I have had in a long time.
A wonderfully dependable and satisfying dining experience. Great service. Terrifically well-prepared entrees. Love this place!
Excellent service, ambiance and food. We had a great time.
Nice brunch spot! Very small menu for brunch options, but we were happy with what we ordered. Slightly quiet, so was a good spot for a casual Sunday brunch!
Brunch. Mediocre coffee.
Too much cream in everything.
Great brunch! Todd was our excellent waiter. Will certainly come back soon
It is my favorite neighborhood go to in Lincoln Park. Always friendly host/hostesses and wait staff. The food never disappoints. The truffle fries are actually addicting.
We loved the restaurant.. Food was outstanding..and Andrew our waiter was exceptional ... We will definitely be back ...
Table was not ready at time of reservation
The best valentines experience we ever had! Definitely will be back!
Food is fantastic, service is great, atmosphere is not over the top and is comfortable.
One of my all time absolute favorite neighborhood restaurants- great for brunch & dinner. Service always spot on and food delish. Love the chilliquiles for brunch and my daughter adores the waffle.
Great food! Unique dishes and very tasty.
It was simply amazing! Great food.
Surprisingly there were a lot of children there, which was a tab bit annoying. This did not ruin the amazing food and beautiful restaurant.
A favorite! Staff is so friendly and I love the neighborhood vibe!
Food is good, service was not what I would expect at such prices. We felt rushed and for our bill (went for the menu) I would have expected more both from food and their service.
The menu is not great. The food and menu used to be terrific but since the renovation it’s not the same. The only reason we keep coming is because on a week night it is convenient.
Our reservation was late by 15 minutes due to Restaurant week and to make up for it, they gave us an appetizer on the house!
Wonderful cozy atmosphere. Delicious burger! Great drinks! Love the booths. Tried special sea bass and it was terrific. Enjoyed the scallops. Loved the cauliflower.
Went for restaurant week. Large portions, accommodating staff, fun atmosphere and great for brunch.
The restaurant was nice and good value overall. Would go back again
Thank you Megan
Always a great evening at Gemini
