Gene & Georgetti is a classic Chicago steakhouse that's as old-school as they come.
Worst Italian food in Chicago. My food was inedible and the service was inattentive. I could not leave fast enough.
Brought out-of-towners who were interested in steak AND Italian. They absolutely loved it.
How disappointing. Despite having made a reservation, and waiting patiently at the front desk, the woman was too busy looking at her Mobile phone to realize someone was waiting to be seated.
I ordered a steak. I'd been told the restaurant was good for steak. It was expensive on the menu, but I supposed it would be worth it. And ordered Medium Rare
It was cooked terribly. Burnt on the outside. I don't mean charred and sealed like a good steak. I mean burnt. And the centre was completely raw. The protein hadn't fused to Medium Rare. It was clear it had been blasted with heat and not cooked properly.
The salad was cheap ingredients. And with an appalling dressing. It made Kraft or Paul Newman's Own seem positively authentic. It was not freshly made but clearly bought by the barrel
The same goes with the desert. Expensive on the menu. And clearly not freshly made. Honestly, Jewel Osco made deserts were of a better quality.
I've given the restaurant 3 x goes. All hoping that, may be, I'd hit it on an off-day. Clearly not. They charge the earth. Then use the cheapest ingredients. And cook them terribly.
May be they think Tourists, whom I suppose are their main trade, will not notice? Who knows. But, nope, I will never go back again. And will never recommend the restaurant to clients, colleagues or friends.
Very good Italien cuisine
Took friends from out of town and had a nice experience. I, however, asked for my steak medallions to be cooked medium and they came out at least medium rare if not rare. Took quite a bit of time to get them redone after I sent them back. But still, all in all, it was a very nice dinner and our friends enjoyed it. It was our first time at this restaurant.
Excellent service and food generous and tasty!
I generally try to get to Gene and Georgetti's at least once a year. The neighborhood feel of this establishment makes it an effective alternative to very high priced, trendy, nouveau cuisine places. The restaurant and food are old school Italian.
On my most recent visit I had an outstanding minestrone and steak. The service was friendly and very efficient. The waitstaff acts as a great team.
Their linguine with clam sauce is killer. Have never had a bad meal there.
G&G never disappoints. I've been coming for over 20 years, always a stop when in town. The menu covers plenty of classic options, but you come for the steak. Best filet I've ever had and the sides are perfect.
Wow what an amazing meal from veal parmigiana to the New York. But how do you they have good food? Order the meatballs and cannoli! For sides recommend the broccoli and mushrooms.
This Restaurant excels in high quality service and excellent food. I highly recommend it for your next visit to Chicago.
Solid restaurant. Great service and quality meat, seafood and Italian dishes.
We all enjoyed out meals. Steaks were good. Prime rib was huge. Boy liked his chicken vesuvio. Service was excellent. Checked with us regularly to see if we needed anything.
I can always count on Gene & Georgetti for a great meal, wonderful service and terrific ambiance. Whether it is to take out of towers, family or a meal with friends, I know it is where I can go to have a wonderful experience....either for lunch or dinner. Thanks to the amazing staff at Gene’s for another great evening.
All of the food was amazing. Go for the broiled scallops.
I wouldn't recommend the "gelato," though - pretty sure it was just regular vanilla ice cream. at least they give you a lot of it.
Food was fresh and cooked to perfection. From the scallop appetizer to the creamed spinach and perfectly prepared filet. Black crust on the steak without any taste of being burnt or charred. I don't know how they do that but I was pleased and amazed. Highly recommended.
Excellent food, superb wait staff, great ambience
Classic steak house with classic service and food.
G and G has delicious food and friendly, attentive service. Grilled calamari and chocolate martini are just 2 suggested ways to start your meal. Quiet, relaxing atmosphere to enjoy conversation with your friends over dinner. You won't be disappointed by this authentic restaurant!
Whitefish Escabechie t OVERCOOKED- Grilled Seafood OVERCOOKED. Im a regular , so surprised, Im sure it was a bad day for CHEF.
Excellent meal, fried ravioli with sauce to die for. Steak cooked perfectly! Wait staff very attentive.
My dad used to be a regular here since the '50's and IT'S STILL GREAT...i'm almost a regular, every few months...
50th birthday dinner with a group. Servers were very attentive, food was delicious. Overall great experience.
Gene and Georgetti's never fails to please. We like to say it is a perfect example of a Chicago style Italian Steak House. Lively, but not overbearing. Service is always impeccable (efficient but not rushed), and food is outstanding. Whether you are in the mood for great pasta, veal, or a good steak, you will not be disappointed. Be sure to make reservations for dinner, but you can usually get in for lunch without a problem. Same great menu and service. We will look forward to our next visit.
This is a great place. As an ex Chicagoan it has been 20 years since I have been there. It hasn't changed a bit. Service was exceptional. Food was good. I would definitely return next time I am in Chicago.
The service was phenomenal. The food exceeded expectations. I will definitely return!
The service all-around was excellent, I put on my open table reservation that it was my daughters birthday, they brought out a dessert and sang to her without any reminders, I really appreciated that!! The garbage salad and clam chowder were delicious, I could have eaten just that and been super happy. The steaks are charred, they are cooked well but not everyone likes charred, so FYI. My only real criticism was the mushroom side. They were canned and not much was done with them. I was disappointed with that. But overall, a good experience.
Awesome old school Chicago
While this is a famous spot in Chicago and I can appreciate the effort in maintaining the feel of the original restaurant, this restaurant needs a makeover. The carpet is dingy and stained, and the feel is depressing and old. The food and service was excellent, but I would not go back simply based on the old and unimpressive state of the decor.
We were heading to Hamilton ... it’s our spring vacation. We were told by friends to have dinner here.
It was so delicious and staff was very attentive!
Great service!! Amazing service really. The complimentary salad and potatoes aren’t great, just pay for a side salad and an actual side.
Angelo the Maitre D’ greeted us upon our arrival and asked how we liked our table to which we said, great. He then said he would reserve it for us from now on when we visit. Our waiter Orfeus then picked where Angelo left off and was very helpful and attentive. My wife and I split the 20oz bone in ribeye steak cooked to perfection! I particularly liked the rye bread sticks. G&G is the best old school steakhouse in Chicago.
AMAZING. AMAZING. AMAZING. The best meal we had during our weeks stay in Chicago. May we highly recommend the 20 oz ribeye and the 24 oz porterhouse. The ambiance and old Italian feel made the meal even better. Our server was Juan and from the minute we arrived until we left he took care of us and we felt we were his only clients. The entire time there was over the top because of Juan!! Can't wait to go back!!
Always great. Service, food, vibe. A Chicago classic that just gets better
We had a great dinner and a great time. The service was fantastic.
Great for those appreciate a classic atmosphere and old school service with a mix of traditional Italian dishes modified for the modern palate.
Food and service were excellent!
Everything was great.
Traditional Chicago. Great steak, great italian food, great creamed spinach.
Had a great time, great service. Great feed back from all the guests.
