What Insiders Are Saying
GT Fish & Oyster is ideal for those who like all the pleasures of the sea. Mandatory oysters to start.
great spot. bartenders and servers really know how to communicate a great experience using the food, wine, drinks, service, and ambience.. highly recommend.. the oysters are the best in the city and the main dishes are so pleasant and so elegant and tasty.. do not miss!.. you won't regret!
Food was mediocre at best and overpriced. Fries were soggy, lobster mac had that grainy over cooked/old texture and the crab cake was a pan fried shredded crab concoction you’d expect from Joe’s Crab Shack. We must have caught them on a bad day/time. Strange meal after reading all of the glowing reviews.
Our server Hannah was great! All of the food was delicious and fresh and we look forward to coming back!
Oysters and mussels were fantastic.
We ordered the snapper ceviche, where it mostly tasted like avocado and not snapper. Would recommend either larger bites of avocado, less avocado, and more fish.
We also got the whole smoked fish which was just okay. Wasn't too much meat on it and the korean sauce seemed like an odd compliment that didn't go very well. We know that Korean food is hot right now but it doesn't have to be incorporated just because it is hot. Recommend having other sauces to choose from. Just tasted like mayo, ketchup, and sirrachi.
It was nice but wouldn't go back.
Cody was an amazing server. His recommendations for soft shell crab and lobster roll were perfect. We loved that he was gracious with our young toddler and entertained him with the funniest faces ever. Thanks GT Fish and Oyster, we can’t wait to come back!
I’ve been to this restaurant 4 times and this time I felt the quality of food was not even close to being on par with my previous dining experiences. Portions were skimpy for the price and taste and presentation were marginal. I will not be back.
Geana was on point with her recommendations. The green tea soba noodles and mussels were our favorites. The chocolate cake and pana cotta were both delicious desserts. Attentive service, delicious food. Really enjoyed our first time here.
Our server, Jeana was excellent. Provided good wine recommendations; anticipated our needs, and generally made us feel very well taken care of.
Amazing service and food. Elegant and outstanding.
We went for an early Saturday dinner before a play at the Goodman. The food was very good and the portions reasonable size. Server was OK but runners who brought the food were quite good. I would definitely go back.
Loved the whole meal and experience. Amazing fish and chips.
Well located seafood restaurant with some good dishes like the fish and chips, soba noodles and clam chowder. Halibut and grilled shrimp were so-so. Didn't order the oysters which given the restaurant name should have been tried.
This restaurant is one of my all time favorites. I have never had a bad experience and been multiple times. The service, food and atmosphere are always spot on. Highly recommend.
Food was awesome. Service was even better. All the right food and wine recommendations. And even a cocktail bar for later. Excellent overall experience. Go. Go. Go.
Delicious food and the service was extraordinary . I would definitely recommend to others.
Made me wait for my table even though I had a reservation. The food was mediocre at best and the attitude of the staff was even worse. Won’t ever eat there again.
The food absolutely DELISH ! Best wedge salad ever. Rather loud but food made up for it. Nice manager very professionally came by and checked on us.
Kathy and I really enjoyed our dinner and the staff was wonderful as always.
I realize that it was a hot day (in the 90s), but i spent close to $300 to sweat in the bar area. I also did not want to sit in the bar area because its very loud. I had a reservation. If they had told me then they only had room in the bar, then I would have picked a different restaurant. If you are going to charge those prices make sure your a/c works and you have enough room in the dining room to seat those with reservations (or let them know ahead of being seated.)
We went for brunch and everything we ordered was delicious. I ordered an omelette that was served traditional french style and loved it. Someone else in our group ordered the shrimp Bruschetta which did not fail to impress in taste and appearance. Being a seafood restaurant I expected to spend more than usual on brunch but in retrospect that was not the case as there are plenty of items on the menu that were moderately priced. The price each person paid was between $12-$16 which is comparable if not better than any other restaurant in the area. Although if you wish to splurge on seafood and caviar, the opportunity is there. Someday I will go back for the seafood tower.
Deviled egg with salmon appetizer absolutely divine! We ordered more for the table after placing our initial order.
Our first dining experience, I hope not the last. The shrimp avocado bruschetta was fabulous, as was the rest of the meal. The service was impeccable. We arrived late due to traffic & parking issues and were attending the theater afterwards. The waiters made sure we were served promptly, attentively without feeling rushed. The next time we will allow more time to savor the experience.
It was my first time at this restaurant and it was very good.
Excellent service, food, drinks and ambiance. You’ll love the selection of appetizers and dishes.
While visiting Chicago, we were recommended GT by a local chef colleague and it lived up to its billing in every way.
Great food, great service and we can't wait to go back.

Lovely place, food was great and the drinks were awesome!
Treated my mother to a special dinner. GT never fails to deliver. Great food, great service.
I absolutely love this place! I visited Chicago recently and had to come back again with this last trip. This is certainly a neighborhood gem - excellent food and customer service, vibrant scene.
Great service, drinks and food! Always a treat!
Lobster rolls are killer!
They celebrated our birthday with a candle in the oysters... love!
Took business associates here for business dinner. Service and food was good. My only issue was that the table they sat us at was so close to another table, we had to move it out (luckily we were on the end). It was weird how the hostess took us to the table and didn't seem to notice that there was no room to get in, or take any action herself, so that my coworkers could sit.
Out of town dinner
We love GT Fish & Oyster. The Oysters are to die fo and the rest of the menu is just as good! Great fish served in unique ways!
Great Father’s Day brunch. Everything was excellent
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here. Very attentive servers, waitstaff and managers. We shared several small plates and then ordered 1 branzino and a lobster mac and cheese which was plenty and we certainly didn't walk out hungry. Oh I must mention the key lime pie...delicious. What a fun evening!
Such a nice place. Great food, amazing service. We went for our anniversary and it was phenomenal. Really made it a special night for us. Highly recommend. Seafood tower was small but very very good as well!
Excellent ,friendly service, nice ambiance,good food and a nice Happy Hour if you like Oysters.
Fantastic food and atmosphere. The whole fish was great and would be strongly recommend.
Wow. How have I not been here before?!? What a great experience. Chloe was a fantastic bartender (divine drinks) and dinner was simply superb. We will be back!!
Great quality meal and friendly service! Cool vibe, casual but sophisticated
