Miguel and Jorge were great. We went for my son’s 21st birthday and they created a wonderful atmosphere for us. My son is a server and likes to ask questions to other servers about...server things? But they answered his questions and were just very hospitable the entire night. After we left, my son said he wants to come back but only if we can reserve a table with Miguel. Thank you Miguel and Jorge (and Juan) for creating a wonderful time for me and my family!
Great meal! Lovely experience. I do think they should bring back the salt and pepper shakers and not use plastic.
Food was excellent, we enjoyed everything we ordered from the appetizers, the cocktails, and the entrees. We will be back!
Very Good. Nice ambience and service
Would like to see more steak options.
took a long time to serve us despite having an 1.5 hour limit in the tent. but we had fun and food was good.
excellent food kept everyone 6 feet apart great job
One of the finest service teams I have ever had the pleasure dining with.
Cozy and quite. Great food, huge portions.
Great service, terrific food and fantastic classic ambiance
Outstanding great location
Food was awesome. Great ambiance.
We love this place but the 1.5 hour time limit does feel a bit rushed and just isn’t enough time for a nice, relaxing meal
Dinner and service was excellent. The only issue was that it was a very cold night and we were seated in the front. Every time the door opened it would freeze us. If you need to be warm ask for a table in the back room or upstairs.
Do not recommend making reservations for outside seating. I feel as if we were forgotten by the waiter, but other than that the food was amazing and would definitely eat there again.
Wonderful . Loved it
We booked for Valentine's Day lunch and ordered off the standard menu. It was over-priced and underwhelming.
From a COVID-19 perspective, my wife and I didn't get the feel that G&G's was fully adhering to the rules (which made us a little uncomfortable). Specifically, the host patted me on the back in a friendly gesture. While normally I'd have no problem with this, it made me uncomfortable and if he did that to me, I can only imagine how many other patrons he's touching (not ideal). Additionally, the first table they sat us at was squeezed in between 2 tables of 6 people. We were 2-3 feet from each table. We ask if we could be moved and they accommodated to a more socially distanced table. Later, another couple was sat down at our initial table and they also asked to be moved (so we were not alone in being uncomfortable there). I'm also pretty sure that they were reusing their paper menus as they were crinkled and had small stains on them (again not the most socially distanced protocol).
Aside from that, the food and service was good and everyone was friendly. In a non-COVID world, we'd go back, but will probably not recommend to others in the short term here.
THE most amazing flavor and service! Loves hearing the history of the restaurant and the ambiance was out of this world
Everything was great. Food was absolutely delicious and the service was great very on top of thing. However I did not appreciate the the other customers coming into the restaurant in lounge wear.
Everything was great except my wife’s filet was burnt on the bottom.
Quality food as always. Had to send back 1 steak but they were very courteous and brought us great replacement. Covid made service a little slower than we've had in past.
Very nice evening for a birthday celebration! Excellent food and drinks!
Old timey steak house. Very casual - not a high-end steak joint. Food is good and it’s fun to support a Chicago classic.
Very disappointing. G&G fell well short of it’s reputation as one of Chicago’s leading Italian steakhouses. The food was average and tremendously overpriced. The atmosphere was dismal. They are coasting on reputation, and need to raise their game a lot.
Quality homemade hands down the best meal. The best waiter Alex and staff were on point.
The calamari was delicious and tender. Meatballs make you keep asking for more. The ribeye grilled to perfection.
Vesuvio potatoes just liked Mom made. I will be at Gene and Georgetti’s again again and again.
Service and food were excellent!! All precautions taken during COVID, and we sat inside. Felt very safe. Thank you!
A classic Italian steak house. Great service and food. They've been doing it for 80 years and you know that you'll be treated well when you walk in the door.
It was our first time dining in since covid started. We just had a baby so it was a much needed night out and we felt very safe dining here. The service and food was amazing!
Excellent food and outstanding service
Very unimpressed. Steaks were mediocre at best.
We were originally scheduled to eat outside. They surprised us with inside seating upstairs! Loved my shrimp dinner light and spicy! My wife's sea bass was beautifully prepared!
Gene & Georgetti never disappoints and nice job with the apre's ski.
Everything was fabulous!
I really enjoyed the ambiance of the entire place. The inside looks like old time Chicago in a classy sense. Upon my entrance I walked right into the bar area and I was happy to see they were very COVID conscious. Hand sanitizer was readily available, all the employees were wearing masks not bad, it didn't have that kind of "damn, that's good" factor for me but I still enjoyed it. Service was solid & I will definitely be back to try more off the menu!
Gene and Georgetti’s never disappoints. The food was great, the service fantastic and everyone was so helpful.
Great experience! Food, ambiance, staff... everything was perfect. We went for a Birthday Celebration and ordered some appetizers, crabcake was my favorite. The steaks were cooked to our liking , very tender and flavorful. You must get s’mores for dessert, it was a fun experience and of course can’t go wrong.
