Gemini Bistro is the kind of place where everyone feels like a regular, whether you actually are or not.
This was my first time dining at Gemini and was simply blown away by what was offered on the menu. The food was incredible - how all of the flavors worked together was truly a work of food art. The Crispy Lobster Spring Rolls were hands down my favorite app and the Korean BBQ Short Rib was out of this world; which, I would describe as a "Ratatouille" Disney tasting experience. I will definitely be going back soon.
I’d like to send a private note.
Small, friendly place to meet for a drink or a moderately priced meal. Great food.
My parents were in town, and we had an amazing meal. Everything we ate was delicious and the service was incredible.
Great neighbor restaurant with a nice flare.
We LOVE Gemini! The food is consistently amazing and we really enjoy exploring the menu. The cocktails are delicious as well and the staff is very nice- they really want to create a great experience.
Food was very tasty, even though the portions are small. I had the sea scallops which was really good, though leaving my hungry 2 hours later. We had a cocktail each and they were probably one of the worst cocktails I've ever had. My drink was watered down and 50% ice. Plenty other restaurants to try in Chicago, will not go back
Gemini is a great place with nice ambience. The food is good, but slightly overpriced, in my opinion. But, I would recommend it for special occasions.
Mother’s Day brunch was fabulous. Loved the lamb meatballs and the tuna Nicosie. Will try the S. fried chicken next. Server was very attentive, but unintuitive. Every meal we have ever had here has been delicious. Great day. Thanks!
We love Gemini. It's an airy, attractive room, the food is great and it also feels neighborhoody. We went on Mother's Day and they gave everyone a warm strawberry danish. The price point is such that you can go often, yet it's also worthy of a special occasion. One of our favorites.
The eggs Benedict, Gemini burger, and burrata/prosciutto appetizer were all excellent. The service and ambiance were excellent as well.
Great experience as always; we’ll be back
We love the atmosphere and the food at Gemini. The cinnamon roll was excellent.
While the food was quite good, there was not a lot of it , and with only 2 drinks each, we still spent $125 per person. I left hungry.
Great meal - a bit noisier than we expected
The food was very good and service was fine. But the noise level was excessive and we could not carry on a conversation without shouting. The high noise level seems to be the going thing these days. Whatever happened to doing things to reduce the noice - noise-deadening ceiling panels, drapes, carpeting
Gemini is one of the "go to" places for me and my wife. The food is excellent, the cocktails interesting and well made, and the room is a good place to relax, talk and chill out. No pretensions, just a great place to relax and enjoy a good meal.
Always one of my favorite spots
Great for every occasion
Enjoyed our anniversary dinner; quite pleased with the comfortable atmosphere combined with very well cooked apps and dinner. We had the prosciutto & burrata crostini, halibut and sirloin steak special. Cocktails were creative and tasty. Service was attentive but relaxed (without a sense of rush).
Amazing food, but noise level was overwhelmingly loud.
Love Gemini, especially the different sized dishes.
I love coming to Gemini for the neighborhood vibe, comfortable ambiance, and reliable food.
Kitchen slow. Service good. A little pricey.
Great service. Good food. Really loud.
A real neighborhood Gem
Ryan’s team does a great job
Always a pleasant experience!
Food was great, service was on point. Cocktails were also very tasty. I liked this place a lot, definitely going back.
Gemini never disappoints! It's one of my favorite spots to go when I have people visiting from out of town.
We loved everything about Gemini! Will be back soon!
Great neighborhood restaurant peddling solid french inspired food. Great wine list too boot.
Never disappoints, great service, ambiance, food!
Gemini far exceeded expectations. We picked the restaurant because of its location. But the appetizers were more creative than expected and delicious. The service was quick and knowledgeable. We would definitely go back again.
Overall, Gemini provided a pleasant dining experience with an easy atmosphere. It was an excellent juxtaposition to the typical Lincoln Park brunch experience, often characterized by drunken 20-somethings students trying to binge away their Sunday-Scaries. The environment was perfect for a calming, mid-morning experience. Crowd was primarily the 30-something bourgeois class that inhabits the neighborhood. Aesthetically, restaurant married an urban feel with traditional diner staples.
Love the food, service and place. Best place
One of the best restaurants in Lincoln Park. Great vibe and the food is exceptional.
Neighborhood gem that appeals to all age groups. Excellent seafood, great pasta, terrific beers that no one's every heard of. They have valet parking, a must in this busy Lincoln Park area A very lively bar scene. A bit noisy, but simply a sign that everyone's having a great time.
They are the best!!
Our local go to! Love it!
Great food, atmosphere and service. Enjoyed - couple drinks, wedge salads, chicken wrapped with pancetta, and lemon olive cake. Highly recommend.
This is a great addition to the neighborhood. It blends together good food, great atmosphere where you can actually hear other guest. I love the swordfish chop!
