The service was great! The steak was awful. $74 for a ribeye and I expected much better. Cooked too rare and I was too hungry to send it back. It’s supper outdated and I get that’s they thing, but I’ll spend my money at Steak 48 or somewhere else next time.

A Chicago institution for a reason. The food is straight forward with top shelf execution. The service is attentive with a sense of humor, the management checking in to make certain you have a special evening.

Literally the most Segregated restaurant in CHICAGO. They stuck every black family that came in for Mother’s Day in the back room secluded from the front of the restaurant which was ALL WHITE PEOPLE. I never felt so humiliated in my life. I bought a bottle of wine and took my family out of there and went to Morton’s steakhouse to enjoy a pleasant night. I will NEVER EVER GO BACK TO THAT GOD FORSAKEN RESTAURANT!!!!

We have been here several times and haven't been disappointed yet. Steaks are cooked to perfection and Pasta's are always excellent. We always go for the house salad as it's crisp and cold and so satisfying. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine along with a few cocktails. Looking forward to returning soon!

We came for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and it was an unforgettable experience. The staff all came over at the end of our meal just to chat and we had a great conversation with everyone. They also brought us a beautiful dessert and limoncello, which so beautiful and unexpected. I asked them if there was any way we could make this night special and everyone went above and beyond to ensure that they did. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate everything they did for us.

The noise level upstairs from a group of 8 men was terrible. The f bombs were flying. Service has deteriorated. First time back since 2019 due to Covid. Had to ask for bread. When we asked for the bread sticks were told no longer provided. Drinks small and expensive but we knew that from previous visits.

Everything ala carte. We had to ask about salad and the previously provided potatoes. Side dishes were excellent and priced reasonably. There was plenty for two or more persons. We took extra home. Tiramisu was very good with cappuccino.

Previously we always raved about the steaks. 16 once rib eyes done to perfection. Interestingly, no 16 once steaks on menu. My wife ordered the 8 once filet. At $44 that comes out to $88 a pound. I ordered the 20 ounce bone in rib eye. The bone did not look like it weighed 6 onces but it must have as the rib eye was the smallest rib eye that I ever ordered anywhere. The only thing exception was the $74 price.

Our annual trip to Chicago will not include Gene and Georgetti's in the future after 12 years of Chicago trips. If you are looking for a quiet place for a family meal, look else where.

Service was fantastic. Everyone seemed to be in a great mood and appreciated the fact you were there. Great experience. The food was superb. I thought the price on the ribeye was high for what you got since everything was a la carte. Nevertheless, food, service and valet parking was exceptional.

Was not impressed! The waiter was not very friendly nor did he introduce himself. Food was ok! A little bland for my taste. Not worth the price! I have had better paying less. Do not recommend! I listed on my reservation that I was celebrating two birthdays and that was not acknowledged. Service was poor!

Living on a past reputation. They have changed the menu and taken away many of the favorites. The portions are about 1/4 of what they used to be but the prices went up. The soup was cold and the food was luke warm. This was the 3rd time we had a bad experience. Tried to give them the benefit of the doubt thinking maybe it was an off day. We won't be going back.

They put us in a back room with no ambiance at all. It looked like a space where you host private events, but it was not ready for it. Really poor environment. The table was not even set for us. The portions are huge. The food is really low Italian standard. It is ridiculous that for such a low level dinner we had to pay ca 100 $ per person. There is nothing special about this place. It is totally over-rated. The servers were very kind. The pasta was pre-cooked and still and dry. The sea-food was overcooked and hard.
I will never go back again.
