Gemini Ratings and Reviews
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!!
We are regulars here but I've never left a review. Simply, the food and service are fantastic so what more do you need? The redesign of the interior from the old Bistro Gemini is lighter and more comfortable, with a larger bar to sit and eat if you desire. The menu is delicious top to bottom. Try the mussels, may be the best in the city now with an Indian flavor profile, and the short rib is the best thing on a menu of winners. The service is always spot on. We go early and take our kids and they are treated like adults (they are 12 and 16), we take friends and first timers always love it. We dine out a lot, and Gemini is our number one go to solid for an overall perfect dining experience (food, service, location and value).
Gemini Bistro used to be our go to spot. We always had a great meal. Something has happened since they reopened...we've been twice and, it pains me to say this, but the good is just not good. The first time I ordered short Ribs and they were so tough I had to eat it like a steak-was with a large group and felt embarrassed to send them back. On Friday, food was bland and just not good. Hopefully, this place gets back to where it was before the renovation.
Gemini is probably one of our favorites in Chicago. Today we enjoyed a wonderful brunch including a delicious tomato bisque which was perfectly seasoned. Gemini is great for dates, everyday dining and special occasions and the service is very attentive. I would highly recommend Gemini to those who value fresh and flavorful meals.
