Business dinner with five people. It was a little early and not packed. Service was professional and attentive. Liked the wine list. Everyone enjoyed their food. Would definitely go back. Was a little expensive but probably appropriate given quality and River North.

GT Fish and Oyster is truly fantastic! The food was absolutely delicious and we highly recommend the oysters (of course), smoked salmon, clam chowder and trout. We decided that we would order the smoked platter next time. Our server was Katie and she made the experience even more special. She was knowledgeable and seemed to want to make sure we were taken care of especially since we were celebrating my husband's birthday. I already know that I want to return for my birthday because the night was perfect!

Clam Chowder was watery and we’ve had canned chowders that tasted better. It was a small cup and was priced like an entree! The tuna crudo was almost tasteless and again, not worth the price. Was not impressed by the fish and chip entree we had either. The fries were good but the fish was flavorless. Overall nice ambiance and pleasant service - but a definite no-repeat because the food is underwhelming and over priced. I guess it’s a nice place for a bland business dinner.

Waitress and staff so lovely and accommodating. Just my personal input since you asked: not a fan of the waitstaff pitching certain (expensive) items. I understand they’re probably told do it so I’m not blaming the staff. Our waitress was extremely professional. Food was delicious-but for the price there are seafood places with ambiance. I will return in summer when the weather seems more in line.

The food and service in this place has always been great but the noise level was high. They must have remodeled because it was just fine this time. Always good to come back to GT.

This was the loudest music I have ever experienced at such an expensive restaurant. I guess because the restaurant is in a neighborhood frequented by many affluent young people, management uses intrusive music as a way to try to draw them. They should realize it can drive others out. Also, $95 for king crab is nothing less than a gouge. The food was good, as was our main server, but some other members of the service staff were not very attentive. Two of us enjoyed it; two of us found it meh.

If you enjoy fresh seafood, this is a great place to checkout. I was surprised at the number of children present and that is definitely a deterrent for future visits. If I go back I’ll opt for bar seating.

Early evening New Years Eve dinner. The room was decorated festively for New Years in a very tasteful fashion. The staff was attentive and our server outstanding.

I purchased a voucher for this restaurant for my parents who were visiting Chicago over Christmas/New Years. The whole process from purchasing the voucher from New Zealand, to their experience in the restaurant, was awesome! They were very happy with the food and the service, definitely recommend! Will be visiting myself when I come to Chicago.

We were a party of six eclectics celebrating a birthday, but we are of one accord that our experience at GT was exceptional. First of all our server, Hilary, went above and beyond to find the perfect wine/cocktail to suit the birthday girl. We even had the sommelier at table for quite a while. And the food! Between us we had shrimp bruschetta, sea bass, fish tacos, fish & chips, and gnocchi and each dish was excellent. And you’ll want to save room for the chocolate cake or carrot cake - both were creative executions of flavor and textures. Finally, the service was impeccable. Although the restaurant was full, it felt like we had a small staff dedicated solely to our table. Thank you!

Service was great! Food was just ok, but for the price, not great. Lobster bisque was watery, oysters were great, rest was good, not great. Restaurant and service were outstanding, just wish the food had followed.

We were seated in the lower level, which worked out nicely because we were able to talk. The overall bill was more than I expected, but everything tasted good.

It’s one of our favorite places. We hadn’t been in a long time though... was a little disappointed to see how small the menu seems to have gotten, but understand why and the overall food and service was still amazing and fulfilling.
Our server was so kind and lovely.
