Great location and atmosphere. The service was really attentive and made for a good experience. We ordered 7 different items and all were good. However, it was WAY over priced, especially for portions. Glad we experienced it once.

Tony fish joint in upscale Chicago hood. food was excellent and service attentive. A little pricey but overall an amusing experience. A little light on the entrees and heavy on the sides. Lobster roll was excellent, drinks upscale, Lobster bisque well done.

Every time we go here we are treated very well. Excellent service, delicious food. Love the west coast oysters, and the shrimp avocado bruschetta is really tasty! Random, but their fries are really good too! My fiancé got the bass and it was cooked perfectly—highly recommend this place!!

Food and service good. Noise: way too loud. Adding to the noise level was the pounding music. Suggestion: you can’t do anything about the noise level but at least soften the ambience with music that isn’t also irritating.

Our advice. Start with a dozen oysters, 2 of each, three varieties from both the East and West coasts on the daily oyster menu (keep this card to make notes). As a couple, work your way “around the clock” both tasting each variety together, commenting on your taste, mouth, brininess, size, if it matters) 🤔. Cleanse palate between each variety with a sip of recommended wine. When done attempt to rank order them individually, then together. This is the start of a great date. Repeat once during each month ending in “R”. Then, ask for the. Steel head trout. (Best done with the widow of a famous NOLA chef!) That’s GT. ~Mike

Food was amazing. Had oysters, snow crab and shrimp to start. For mains we shared a lobster roll and fish tacos. The taste of the lobster roll was unreal. Reasonably priced for the quality of food.

This was a great find in downtown Milwaukee. I was impressed by the friendly service, the restaurant was clean, modern and sleek. Loved the vibe the in this place. Now the food....I had the Lobster Pot Pie and it did not disappoint. Honestly it could feed two people but I did my best to eat as much as I could. The flaky crust on top was light but flavorful. This is a must dish.

Oysters were small and one of them had a very funny lingering taste. Smoked trout platter was small and not much smoke flavor. Salmon main didn't have any flavors that made me happy. kind of oily and creamy with strong taste of greens underneath. I used to love this place, but was completely unimpressed with my last visit. Still very expensive also.

Excellent service. Waiter was very helpful with food and wine selection. Outstanding steelhead trout, large enough for shareable entre, paired with unique and delicious eggplant side dish.

Our group had a nice time and thought the food was delicious overall. The server was efficient but interrupted rather than waiting a beat before cutting into our conversation. At these prices I would expect service to be a little more refined. I would definitely go back though as overall it was a good experience.

I'm so sorry! I'm not a big foodie, but was very excited to take my associates in from Dallas to dinner... and the food was not good. There was no single item we ordered that was standout, and two entree's were (again, sorry!) terrible. We were very surprised. The restaurant is lovely and the ambiance was perfect if we'd been there simply for a drink and socializing. I mentioned the food to a friend who said he no longer goes there because his food experiences were so poor. Ugh! I feel terrible.. but you asked.
Peace.

I'm so sad I didn't get our server's name! He was AMAZING!!! I'm a very difficult vegetarian but my family loves all things from the sea/ocean so our server went to great lengths to ensure we were all delighted! The entire evening was just delicious! Thank you♥️

The Steelhead trout was amazing. Unusual and perfect with the frites. I also enjoyed the crostini and my husband had oysters. Millefeuille lovely and lighter than it looks. Pricey but delicious

My wife and I did a date night/birthday combo. Food at GT Fish and Oyster is the best, service is the best. The experience is the best. Jasmine, the Assistant General Manager, is the best at her job. The team approach to service is the best. Superlatives aside, here are some details. Oyster selection and quality dominates the world, mussels are fresh, delicious and perfected with Fresno peppers. Seafood is masterfully integrated into both hot and cold appetizers, specifically shrimp and avocado bruschetta and a cauliflower crab cake. Wine list is packed with high quality selections for every palate and the cocktails will disrupt your subconscious programming of what is possible. We will be back again as soon as possible.

My first visit to GT Fish and Oyster. I chose it because my visiting friends love seafood. All three of us were 100% pleased with every aspect of our dinner and our evening at GT. Thank you!
