Gene and Georgetti - Rosemont
Francine was one of the best servers ever.
After this last visit, I cannot say that I would recommend Gene and Georgetti in Rosemont to a friend. We've eaten at this location on several occasions and it's always been good, but this visit was quite disappointing. First, we asked for parmesan cheese to go with our minestrone soup, but that was never brought by our waiter. I had rigatoni in a tomato cream sauce which was served hot and was very good. The problem was with the sides that my husband and son ordered. My husband ordered onion rings for the table and they came out cold or at least, not warm. So we sent them back. My son ordered a twice baked potato that was cold on the inside. It seemed as though it had been microwaved because there were spots that were warm and spots that were extremely cold. Again, sent it back.
This dinner for 3 was over $350 with two cocktails and 1 bottle of wine, which I think is quite expensive considering the service was lack luster and portions of our food was cold and needed to be sent back. It will be awhile before we return, and even then, we may not at all.
Outstanding (although too much) food. Service impeccable.
The menu is getting a little old. Need to shake it up a little
Great service, delicious food.
The food was excellent. Francine, our server, while very busy, was able to give us the attention we needed, and she was most friendly. Sergio, one of the managers, selected a great bottle of wine for us, and the chef, Cristiano, came to the table to make sure all was right. All in all, it was an excellent dining experience.
Greeted at the door by the host and immediately our party was seated. The atmosphere was great. Never rushed and our waitress Francene was outstanding.
With all of the food establishments in the area I did not think the food was that good based on price.
Seen the bartender top off our grey goose martinis with rail vodka when the grey goose bottle was emptied. Ordered a specialty dish and it was not even edible way to salty.
Good food, excellent service. A bit overpriced
amazing food and great service
It was a busy Saturday night so service was just a little slow. But we could see the staff was hustling. Never felt rushed. Food was delicious, nice portions. Great wine list
The calamari and caesar salad were awesome. Then 20 minutes passed and the server started apologizing because the entrees were taking longer than expected. No worries I told him. The food did arrive and the filet my mouth was watering for just didn’t meet my expectations. I know filet can be tricky so I wasn’t upset and didn’t complain. I would still give GandG another try. I just think they had an off night.
Four friends who hadn’t been together in over 40 years were pleased not to be rushed or hassled for taking our sweet time! Our waiter was great and we will be back next year!
First time diners. Service was excellent. Portions for appropriate in size.
The steaks were just ok. Other steak houses provide better quality for the $$$.
I had a bone in sirloin which was great. My fried had veal which I am told was excellent. So, good choice for dinner.
My wife ordered Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesan then came out. Took forever to redo. When it came, my filet was rare and not medium. Had to leave by the time the steak arrived; gave us a desert and never saw a manager or anyone else apologize. waiter was nice enough, but had too many tables at once. Won't be going back.
Love the food and the service is amazing. Shout out to Francine who made our experience even more enjoyable!
I had the distinct pleasure of hosting my cousin and her husband’s first ever trip to the Midwest and Chicago. They currently live in Powell Butte, Oregon but are originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. Actually, I decided upon Gene & Georgetti’s for steaks as I had never been there before and the Rosemont location was more convenient for us than the original River North restaurant. Having visited pretty much all the reputable and popular steakhouses in the city, Gene & Georgetti’s was put on a bucket list. My family and out of town guests were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and quality of food and service provided on our visit. The steaks and accompanying dishes all were top quality and exactly prepared. A big thank you goes out to our server, Phillip, who was especially professional and personable which added to our enjoyable dining experience at Gene & Georgetti’s. Everything exceeded our expectations. Indeed, very impressive!
Place was relatively empty, but they sat us next to a small private room that was very noisy. Hard liquor drink was almost an empty glass. Entrees only come with sliced potatoes. Salad was wrong one and lettuce was wilted, but we kept it. Busboy tried several times to clean off the table while several were still eating.
We were very disappointed in our dinner at Gene and Georgetti. We had dined there a few years ago in Chicago and had an excellent dinner. Unfortunately my husband’s ribeye steak was over done ,the bread was hard and stale, the plate of potato’s looked like they had been served before and refried. Paying $58.00 for a steak, it should be prepared to perfection. My whitefish was ok but way overprice! The service was very good and atmosphere was nice, unfortunately we will not be returning.
Great food, friendly service. Will definitely return.
The food is quite good and there is a lot of options to choose from. The service is really outstanding. The key point one needs to know is that the noise is extremely loud and one can hardly hear yourself think.
Husband’s birthday dinner
The waiter was awesome, knowledgeable and funny!
Very pretty restaurant- great ambiance. Dined in the bar which is relatively quiet. My only disappointment was the change in the menu to all ‘alacarte items. No more salad with an entree, and you have to ask for bread. The food is always quite good, but a bit pricey.
Gene and Georgetti’s is our favorite place to eat. We go there a lot to have dinner. Servers are always kind and courteous. I have food allergies and they go above and beyond to make sure that my food is prepared correctly.
A wonderful dining experience! Overall, I highly recommend this restaurant. My only complaint and it is a minor one is the timing of the meal. I would prefer a shorter dining experience and a faster delivery of my meal. Prepare to spend at least 2 hours here.
We had a prime rib and rib-eye steak both were delicious and enough to take some home for lunch the next day. I'm sorry I forgot my server's name but he was outstanding. Will definitely return again.
Great service, excellent description of menu items. Perfect service. Table next door was a bit loud, constant chatter.
This was not our first rodeo. We love meeting our very closest friends at Gene and Georgetti to have a wonderful evening. The service is as good as it gets. My ribeye steak was the best steak I’ve had in memory. That’s saying a lot because I love steak. Everything was wonderful I highly recommend it
Went there for lunch. Great service great food. Seemed a little bit expensive. $24 dollar for shrimp appetizer only received 4 shrimp. While very good seems overpriced
Steaks were phenomenal- service was outstanding!
I honestly don’t think I would, which makes me feel bad. However, we ordered 3 steaks none of which were cooked the way we ordered them. Had to keep asking for more cottage potatoes, brought them on a salad plate. Knowing we told waitress that we wanted a large portion initially. Have been going to this restaurant for many many years, the one downtown, this was quite disappointing.
Our waiter George was amazing. Food was extraordinary!! Would definitely go there again
The food is always great! Good variety of food and drinks. Breadsticks are always a hit with our group too. Waiter was very attentive. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer meal with great friends!
Excellent service by David. Cocktails were perfectly prepared. And the food was high quality and expertly cooked. All dishes were delicious and the ambiance was perfect for our visit with long-time friends.
