Gemini Bistro is the kind of place where everyone feels like a regular, whether you actually are or not.
Friends since kindergarten 60+ year’s ago in Iowa came to Chicago from San Francisco. Shared a phenomenal dinner & conversation for nearly 3 hours in your fantastic restaurant!
Food quality was amazing. Great service. Menu was smaller but definitely something for everyone. They also have specials - when I went they had a Veal Parm and a seafood dish with clams, halibut, and lobster. All very good.
Awesome in every way! A little bit of a wait even though we had a reservation, but the front desk people kept checking in with us and were very apologetic. They do everything well here. Food is amazing and some reasonably priced wines as well. 10 thumbs up!
Amazing!!! Such helpful staff and incredible food
Everything was great!!
We have been going to Gemini for the past year and love it! It's our go-to local restaurant
that offers a great ambience, fun bar, very good service and very good food. There is definitely
a local feeling here which is nice....warm and friendly.
Our dinner was terrific so was the selection of wines....but best of all was the butterscotch sundae....their pastry chef is divine!
Great food, great service, great ambiance. Would definitely go back!
Price is steep for what you get but what you get is very good!
Really good food, excellent service and much better than the original menu. I only wish it were a little bit quieter
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.
We will be back:)
It was a great atmosphere with delicious food. It was a little overpriced, but the ambience and the staff made the experience very enjoyable. Great service. Great attention to detail. Will definitely be back.
Service was excellent
I live in Lincoln park and this restaurant is one of my favorites and a go to for us. Love to bring my friends from the burbs here.
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....
One of best Restaurant Week meals we have had over the years! Ample portions of food actually on regular menu.
Service was professional, friendly and attentive
Thanks much! Will return soon
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.
Service was fantastic and the menu had a variety of choices. Noise levels seemed to get very loud at times.
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.
The food is overrated. Don't
Sat 30 minutes after reservation. Food was mediocre. Service was cheesy
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.
We were here for restaurant week
Good food and service. Also was not overcrowded and noisy like other brunch places. Will be back again!
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.
Spencer was an exceptional waiter! Food is delicious, diverse and approachable.
Good find for the price. Noisy and not enough servers.
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.
Food delicious. Really enjoyed the restaurant, but we felt as if we were being rushed.
Food, ambiance and service was exceptional. We loved everything most notably the wedge salad, short rib and swordfish.
Great menu. Food and service are top notch.
My go-to place never disappoints. Great location, valet, excellent food, fun open atmosphere, beverages excellent. Servers are always courteous and well-versed. I try to get here as often as possible.
The food was delicious, the cocktails interesting and fun, and the wait staff and hosts went above and beyond to make us feel welcome on a very busy NYE dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would absolutely return again!
Took advantage of the prix fixe menu for NYE. We all felt rushed and our entree was a little cold. Not sure if it was worth the $85
No complaints! Food was delicious and drinks were awesome!
