My fiancee and I went here for her birthday dinner. I loved it! The seafood was great, and the dessert (20-layer crepe cake with sweet corn ice cream) was delicious and unique. The service was excellent, there when we needed but not hovering or obtrusive.

Weather forced us to move our patio reservation to the bar, but the staff made it a wonderful night all the same. Excellent recommendations both for food and drink, fantastic service, and everything was delicious. A great dining experience start to finish.

Was really bummed to come back here and not have the same experience we’ve had many times before. The service was outstanding - so no complaints there! Such amazing and friendly people who made us feel welcome and at home. The mains were just so disappointing. We did love the oyster and the desserts but everything else we were just not loving. I’ll be back for a drink and dessert but sadly this place isn’t what it used to be. Hopefully it’ll change or you diner, will have a better food experience!

Every food item we had: octopus, crabcake, oysters, clam chowder was fantastic. The service was impeccable. In fact, my girlfriend spilled her wine accidentally when most it was gone and they immediately brought a replacement glass. Really a great dining experience!

One of the best spots for seafood anywhere in Chicago!

Fish & Chips, the value on the champagne selection, and the oyster menu are all especially top notch.

Two thumbs up!

I was in town for work conference and brought my team here as it’s one of my favorites. I was a big fan of their po boy sliders when i used to live here. Everyone loved their meal! One of the best octopus!!

I sat outside street side which is why I gave 3 stars in some areas. If I wanted to sit inside they would have been 5 stars. Food and service were awesome.

Great food and service. Tables are kind of small for 2 but a manager noticed and offered to move us to a bigger table which we kindly declined but appreciated very much. Definitely recommend and will be going back soon. Caviar was delicious and I'm not too big on seafood.

Restaurant is very old and tired , chairs cracked and worn, air conditioning poor or not working . We arrived and were promptly seated , but than treated to a lecture to make sure we wore our masks if we needed to use the restroom . As we are from Chicago and well aware on the mask rules , wore our masks into the restaurant , we felt this lecture was not needed . After looking around and seeing the condition of the restaurant and experiencing the lack of a proper working air conditioning system we politely left .

Did not enjoy the food. It was pretty basic. Wine list was large, but for the prices, the food itself is unexceptional. Will not be returning.

The food was very good...although the Clam Chowder was overly spicy, no warning or reason to be that spicy. The service was great and the entrees were delicious. I have been here before and I will go again.

Limited menu
Slow service
Sitting on the sidewalk without sufficient planters to create a nice ambiance

All impacted the experience … but it is COVID times and I “get it”….

They tried the best they could and didn’t charge a “COVID surcharge” which we appreciated!

Love the food here. Eating outside was very enjoyable, with a moderate amount of street noise. But happy to be able to eat outside due to Covid. Service was great. Will go back!

Have been coming to GT for 9 years, initially for much needed M&D date nights, but the past 3 years with our teen and tween boys as well. Always delicious fish and seafood. Creative preparations. Elevated dining but not pretentious. Favorite dishes were the spicy mussels, Spanish octopus and chocolate-hazelnut dessert. We LOVE coming here.

Food was great, but you felt a little cramped in the dining room. There was a large group by us, so they probably had to rework the tables to fit them and that could be why I felt cramped. Noisy too, but again, this could've been from the large group next to us! Service was a bit slow last night.

While the ingredients were fresh, our main dishes were terribly bland. I had the swordfish and my wife had the halibut. Mine had a good texture and was presented well, but had no flavor at all. The halibut had a touch more flavor, but was overcooked.

On the bright side, the restaurant staff were great and very helpful.

That being said, we don't plan on coming back any time soon.
