Our go to spot in Chicago. Nice way to end a busy buying trip. We sat by the window and enjoyed watching the streets. The wait staff was outstanding. We each had a soup, clam chowder and coconut curry. They were Devine. The.entrees were superb as well- salmon was cooked perfectly. We will be back the next time we’re in Chicago..

I thought the restaurant had gone down from when I was there previously.
The raw oysters were delicious. The Thai Soup was outstanding. The whole trout was outstanding. Everything else was good but not exceptional. The prices have gone up and the restaurant was very noisy. The kitchen held up several of our courses.

The Oysers were wonderfully fresh, briny, and delicious. The trout was one of the best preparations that I have ever had - wonderful. Topped off with the chocolate marshmallow cake it was a delicious meal. and the champagne was a really good accompaniment to it all.

We went here for restaurant week. The set menu was ok nothing special. The service was very nice but I wouldn’t go back here. There are too many other restaurants to try and this one didn’t stand out.

Service was excellent. Alexandra was very attentive, she was also on point with the timing and pace of the meal. Cocktails were done well. We would go back for oysters and cocktails but not for dinner. Price points a bit much.

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.

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.

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.
