GT went above and beyond. Food was spectacular! The chef even came out to say hi and thank us for coming. Given everything going on in the World they truly did a remarkable job making us feel safe. Every precaution was thought of and their staff was great. Highly recommend.

The food is exceptional! Everything has so much flavor! The restaurant is tight for seating if you’re in the row of two seaters. Overall though, the food is so good we will keep coming back!

A superb meal in a lovely setting with outstanding attentive but not obtrusive service from very knowledgeable wait staff. Very highly recommended. GT Fish & Oyster is not inexpensive but you get what you pay for and more.

Everything but caviar service was excellent. Nothing wrong with the caviar itself, it was the bilinis. Bilinis should be thin, tasteless, & soft. GT’s tasted like it was made with pancake mix. They also were too thick. The sweetness of the bilinis overpowered the delicate taste of the eggs.

Always a great time and good food here. Menu seems to be the same from about a year ago. Maybe needs a update.

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.
