What Insiders Are Saying
Gene & Georgetti is a classic Chicago steakhouse that's as old-school as they come.
Excellent steak and wonderful service. Would recommend it to anyone.
Service was good and it is an "old school" style of steakhouse. But, the bread was brought out cold, butter was frozen and you don't get any side dishes included with your entree. They brought out some unseasoned, tough potato slices as a side? I've never heard of that. We were very hungry from a busy day but couldn't even finish them. We are from Omaha so we know what a steakhouse experience should be, especially for the prices you pay... garlic mashed potatoes, salad, soup, warm bread. I'm sure this place was top-notch in its day, but it left us disappointed at just over $100 for 2 people.
If you love steak, this is your place and if you love pasta, this is also your place! The food is excellent, the service is excellent. Great time!
Great food and service! Our waiter was the “rookie” with 22 years experience. A Chicago classic!
Great service and food!
One of the best steaks I’ve had in Chicago. Much better than RPM Steak
Exellent staff & food. Would recommend! Classic spot.
Great service and atmosphere, and best tiramisu I’ve had!
Service was excellent and the food was fantastic.
Great meal and service. We were seated immediately. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was great. I had the ribeye which was perfectly prepared and delicious. My son had the veal that he said was the best thing he’d ever eaten. But he still wanted to trade me for a piece of steak when he tried it. Ambience was also nice. Could hear the music without it interfering with the conversation. Wonderful meal.
Such a great old- school Chicago steakhouse. Very classic & the steaks are amazing.
Nice Oregon pinot noir with meal.
Bread was delicious — best part of the meal.
Salad was very fresh
Filet mignon was tasty as was NY strip although slightly overcooked. Mushrooms were very good and nice-sized baked potato.
Lemon cake for dessert was second best part of the meal.
Ambiance was lacking having been sat upstairs around loud/boisterous patrons
Excellent! Gerald our server was excellent. Food great, Ambiance wonderful! Worth the expense
I am an airline pilot who eats out all over the world. My experience in dining is defined by the server. Our server was superior in tending to our eclectic needs and in the pace he found for our table. Masterful job! I told him as much as I was leaving.
This was a bucket list visit for me and it did not disappoint. Old school ambiance and charm, fantastic food and drink, excellent service and attention. We unfortunately were seated by a couple who were totally inappropriate with their volume and vulgar conversation, but they left and didn't want that small glitch to ruin the experience. It is not cheap, but the finer things aren't. Excellent experience.
Old restaurant consistent with quality of food and ambiance. Rickety old stairs and furniture. Food is bad compared to the newer Italian restaurants in area. Although service was good, it doesn’t make up for the crummy food. Would never go back. Too many other better choices.
Old fashioned steak house ambiance. Good steaks, good service. Felt like we were in a friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar.
We felt like we went to a home for old people. Just depressing when we walked in...heard lots of great things over the years...must have great in the past. Would not recommend; lots of money for an ordinary place.
My favorite...Always exceptional! Best Ribeye in Chicago!
Gene & Georgetti is one of our must-haves when in Chicago. The food is fantastic, and is surpassed only by the service. This Italian steakhouse is second-to-none in Chicago!
I would give this restaurant 4.6 stars for service, ambience and food. The NY Strip and Pork Chop was massive and delicious. Our Waiter was awesome!
Outstanding food and service. Look the old school feel and atmosphere.
Excelente servicio y muy buenos Cortes
Great vibe. Friendly staff. Decent price for very tasty steaks and sides.
Not only my favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago but in my top 3 overall restaurants! Love the atmosphere and have been going here over 20 years.
Great food. Good service a little pretentious attitude but can’t be the food
I have been going there over 25 years. A classic.
Great steak. Ordered the white fish, generous portion, and well prepared.
Went for lunch on Sat to avoid the crowds.
Phenomenal experience from the bar to our table. Couldn’t have been a better place to celebrate our engagement. My parents loved everything. It was quite possibly the best steak most of us have ever had.
This is a very special place-great food, great service-impeccable surroundings and amazing history. One cannot do better in Chicago than Gene and Georgetti. Although I do not reside in Chicago any longer, I make it a point to dine at this marvelous establishment whenever I am in Chicago. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
We had another great meal at Gene & Georgetti’s the food was excellent and the service was friendly and it’s always a great place to run into old friends
Great service, awesome food (large portions) and a Fab ambiance. We love G&G!
Gene and Georgetti never fails to deliver! Our server was attentive, professional, knowledgeable and charming! Our food was superb! I highly recommend this as one of Chicago's best restaurants!
40th birthday. Was so excited and steak ended up being so not good. It was flavorless, tough and so were the other cuts that people ordered. What happened to G & G since the last time I was in Chicago? Will look forward to a better steak somewhere else... when I turn 50 I guess.
The food is very pricey; the salad with dinner is no longer included in the price of the entree. The place is slipping
It’s our favorite. Just like everything about it. And the wait staff is solid.
Sat at a table next to walkway ( second floor) where all guests passed by to be seated, leave or go to bathroom. Also all the wait staff had to pass by to reach kitchen/prep area.
Was just way too busy an area for any ambiance and noise really elevated.
I’m sure other areas would have been great for a pleasurable dining experience.
Old school and I enjoyed, was seated at reservation time and it was busy. My husbands rib eye was great, I ordered a med rare filet and it was overdone, but they took care of that. Good potatoes and breadsticks.
Overall a good experience
Great food and service and a nice crowd. Everyone having a great time in an old school steakhouse. Nothing fast or flashy, no stainless steel and glass. I look forward to going back.
I've been coming to G&G since the late 80's. Anytime I get to Chicago I TRY to go. Doesn't always work. But I managed to get a couple of friends from California to go with me on our last night in Chicago. Still the Classic Old School Italian Steakhouse! Great Service, Great Food, our service was spot on as always! It's Pricey? No Doubt! But if you appreciate a great Steakhouse, the way it is done best! Old School! This is a can't miss experience!
Now back to Maine. Where Lobster and Scallops like No Where else!! It's a trade off!!
Go here for a classic Chicago-steakhouse experience. They are the real thing, have been for decades, and haven't changed anything in that time. The rooms (several of them!) are comfortable and charming in an old-school way. Service and meats are excellent. Side dishes are OK, and the part of the order most likely to go awry. At peak times, the room can get noisy because they pack a lot of people in. But I would still prefer this over the newer steakhouses, especially because they do get their beef right, and that's what it's all about.
