Loved the food but was very disappointed in the wine pairings. Would choose to order a bottle instead.

Probably the most outstanding meal we’ve enjoyed in the Chicago area. The creative dishes, perfectly prepared and presentations with dinnerware and timing make George Trois a premier addition to our Chicago restaurant scene. Chef Michael not only prepares the dishes, he comes over to each table for each course to explain both the inspiration and the preparation... I suggest making reservations and consider their wine pairings-

We dined at the new George Trois to celebrate a milestone birthday for my husband. It was a lovely evening the food was very good and the service was impeccable and good-natured. The chef served each course. We tried the Platinum wine pairings, and we were not disappointed. We will definitely return for another special occasion dinner.

Probably the best dining experience I've had in Chicago, as well as many other places. Service was impeccable, food was indescribably delicious and delightful to the eye. Looking forward to our next visit already. Sorry they are going to be closed for updates till some time in May. Seems like a long time to wait! :-)

Every course was delicious, attractive to see, and creative. The flow and rhythm of flavor intensity, plate weight, texture was like a gentle warm wave... of pleasure. Service was impeccable and gracious.
Room was cozy yet elegant and intimate. We will be back as soon as they reopen. I expect a second Michelin Star is not far behind.

We were so impressed on our first visit to George Trois last Friday evening! Chef Michael has elevated his amazing cuisine to its ultimate level of taste, presentation, and elegance. The inspiration for each dish was mesmerizing and memorable, and Chef Michael's personal attention in presenting each course provided a most captivating dining experience. The service was elegant and perfectly timed, and we highly recommend the premium wine flight which was the perfect complement to the various courses of the menu. The ambiance was intimate, elegant, and tasteful. Congratulations to Chef Michael and his gracious team for creating and executing one of the most memorable evenings in the Chicago restaurant scene.

An outstanding 12-course meal, with each course presented by the chef, who is friendly and accessible. A small, white room (5 tables) inside Restaurant Michael makes for quiet focus on conversation and the food. The courses were all delicious, though for us the weakest was dessert ... hated to end on a soft note! Everything else was excellent though. Staff is efficient and friendly, and not pretentious. However, this is one pricey meal (which doesn't include tip).

We greatly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at George Trois. Our expectations were high, and those expectations were exceeded. The ambiance, knowledgeable service, quality and creativity of the food, and personal attention made the evening special. After being seated in a private room separate from the main dining area at Restaurant Michael (which is co-located with George Trois), you are welcomed by Alfredo and Chef Michael and given an introduction to what the evening will include. Twelve courses unique to George Trois are prepared and presented at a comfortable pace, served with excellent wine pairings (three levels available) if you choose. Courses vary with season and the chef's inspirations. Everything we had was elegantly presented and tasted wonderful. Flavors were well balanced. This is truly a extraordinary dining experience suited to special occasions, special friends, and those who enjoy first-class French food and world-class service.

What a beautiful evening we had. Our second visit and we plan for a third. Chef Michael's experience, passion and culinary creativity and playfulness are poured and placed in front of you as he delivers and describes each dish nearly poetically. The intimate room of six tables allows for quiet conversation and intimacy, yet accomodates laughter and comraderie. Don't want to ruin the surprise of what the menu entails, so here's a few spoilers. A hot buttered rum cider arrives after you are seated. On a cold November night, it instantly warms and welcomes you. From there, chestnut soup (with a foie gras cracker that we shall not forget), caviar with another notable cracker, duck (and it's the only duck I'd ever request again), chicken, halibut, delightful palate cleanser, lamb that must be worshiped. There is a huckleberry/lamb side dish that I've requested as a component of my last meal, an unusual cheese course that I'd love to replicate, and then dessert, dessert and more dessert. We opted for the wine pairings which Sergio, GM/sommelier, pours with a good nature, a story if you like, and a beaming smile. There are several choices for the pairings for all budgets and livers. This was a flawless night. Have not ceased thinking about how well we were taken care of from arrival to hugs good by, to the gasps when each item was placed in front of us, to the sighs as we began to taste. This is a very special and not to be missed gem. Our Christmas wish is to have the good fortune to sit in Chef Michael's kitchen to watch and learn how to compose any of these masterful, delicious and stunning courses. But we'll settle for a return visit, knowing the next time will (hard to imagine) be even better and leave us wanting to return yet again. It's rare to see a Chef's heart and soul present itself as you do here as you have the good fortune to interact with him throughout the evening and it makes the experience that much deeper and eye opening.

To celebrate My husband’s birthday, I took him to a four-hour, 12-course prix fixe dinner at George Trois in Winnetka. It is in a separate room in the same building as Michael’s. There are only six tables in this private room, and Chef Michael Lachowicz personally served every course (with an appropriate and interesting explanation) at each of the six tables. It is classic French dining.

It's been two weeks since we had this meal and I think enough time has passed for me to validate my opinion of our experience. Since I've given myself enough space to reflect, here is the single word I can use to describe our experience:

Pedestrian

Service: Pedestrian - We've had better service at virtually every mid-price restaurant in Chicagoland we've ever visited.

Food: Pedestrian - We've had a lot of fine dining meals over the years throughout Chicago and elsewhere in the world. As far as I am concerned, every single dish here could have been prepared by a non-professional home cook at least as well and, for one course, it actually entered my mind that I was in an episode of Children's Chopped that had gone seriously awry.

Wine: Pedestrian - The flights menu had no details, just prices. We avoid flights anymore because they are usually comprised of uninspired wines with maybe one that is a wonderful surprise. I asked for some guidance on a Burgundy in the $250 range and after a chat with the server I accepted his recommendation and as he was walking away he told me that the wine I selected was one that was drinking very well on their wine flights. Ugh! I was right. The wine was...you guessed it, pedestrian.

Price: Offensive - For the food and experience we had, $190 per person was appalling. Our total bill for this meal was not exceptionally high relative to what we typically pay for fine dining but the value was simply terrible. It was so bad that once we reached the sidewalk after the meal we both laughed and said "So. Oriole next week for a meal where the food is actually good?"

Special occasion and appreciated the time, attention and explanation of each course by Chef Michael! 9-courses exceeded expectations with caviar, foie gras, Dover sole and lamb as stand-outs with truffles incorporated into many dishes thoughtfully presented in a "matching" serving vessel. Beautiful all-white room with limited 5 tables and extremely attentive service. Did not feel the wine pairings - 4 for $116 - met expectations, so would forego next time. Thanks for the lovely evening!

Overall the savory dishes were great (minus the fondue). The ravioli was define. The burre rouge was amazing with the beef. The delicate potatoes on the fish was amazing. The savory dishes were really on point.

There were a few dishes that weren’t as successful. The fondue opening was too small to dip and it wasn’t that good. The sweets also need further refinement. The best dessert was the banana bread pistachio. The macron,chocolate truffle combo wasn’t as good. The soufflé didn’t need the addition of truffle.

Overall this was a great meal. With further refinement of the sweets, the meal would of been even better.

Simply fantastic. The truffle menu was creative, presented beautifully, and delivered a range of flavors and textures. The wine pairings were spot on. Chef Michael personally served and introduced every course (9, I think?), and his love and enthusiasm for the cuisine was evident. The service was impeccable, and the banter with staff was good humored, witty and fun - Daniel is an excellent foil for Michael.

This is not a cheap date night, however you absolutely get what you pay for. We highly recommend, and will be back.
