Love this place. The food is always great and the service is wonderful. Perfect balance of helpfulness without being overbearing. The restaurant does get loud when it is busy, but the room and ambiance are comfortable and lovely. It's a favorite.

I thought that the meal was very good. I eat out at a table service establishment about 2-4 times a week depending on the week. Food and ambiance were so much better than I had remembered it as Gemini Bistro, glad they made those changes. I did feel like the menu was kind of pricey for a neighborhood spot. My friend and I were just getting dinner on a Monday night. Had the restaurant week special and two glasses of wine and the bill was $160 plus tip. Again, Loved the food, but got the bill and was meh on the food because I felt it was good, but I probably won't be back. Unless with my husband on a "nice" meal date. Again, I'm totally aware of costs and dining, but this wasn't fine dining and the price seemed a little much for what we had, to think, what if I ordered everything I had in normal size, not on tasting special....

We live a block away and love this place, but it has definitely gotten crazy expensive for what used to feel more like a neighborhood, any day, sort of place. It's usually full, so I suppose that means they've priced it correctly, but I miss the slightly-more-reasonable days. You will *buy* bread & butter now. The food is really good though.

Went for Sunday brunch. The restaurant started to fill up after 11. We had the lox and crabcake versions of the egg Benedict which were delicious, and the lox platter. We were all very happy with what we ordered, but wished there were more breakfast choices. 90% of the menu choices were lunch foods. Very family friendly.

This restaurant seems to take criticism to heart noticed improvement when I brought up failings. Staff is always welcoming even though we are”senior” citizens. This is definitely a plus

We had reservations for 9pm and weren't seated until after 9:30pm, but Management was apologetic and treated us to an appetizer. The food was incredible and the staff was friendly.

Went during restaurant week & had to wait more than 15 min. for table even with reservation. Our food was served in a timely manner with little interaction with the waitress. In fact, she was blasé and uninvolved which was a big negative. Water was refilled by busses but she never returned for additional beverage orders. While our food was okay nothing impressed enough to warrant a return.

Gemini is one of my favorite Chicago restaurants. It’s always lively, the food is delicious, and the service is great. Everyone seems really happy you’re there!! I don’t live in that neighborhood anymore, but I’d go back any day of the week to enjoy a meal there!!
But if suggest making a reservation!!

The specials were great for appetizers, wine recommendation and the dessert was wonderful. The main entrees were just ok, and the value was not there.

Food was tasty and the atmosphere was nice. The only negative was they were a little too quick with service to want to remove plates. Better that than the other way around.
