What Insiders Are Saying
GT Fish & Oyster is ideal for those who like all the pleasures of the sea. Mandatory oysters to start.
Had a lovely evening here! Server Scott was incredible and gave some wonderful recommendations! Food was great!
This restaurant disappointed on food. I had fish tacos which were lacking in imagination and execution, flabby and dull where they should have been tasty and zestful. My companion's fish and chips were a mere ghost of what they should have been - there was no crispy crunch of batter, no succulent fish.
Service was warm and welcoming however a restaurant with such an interesting wine list deserves knowledgeable wine staff.
Whenever my husband I visit Chicago we always make it a point to go to GT Fish and Oyster. Not only are the oysters the best in the Midwest, but the cocktails are great, the service is phenomenal, and all of the food surpasses our expectations each time we go. Even after seven years, it is still our favorite spot for dinner in Chicago!
Delicious and fresh seafood. Excellent service. Nice menu selections the Lobster Roll, Clam Chowder and Tuna Poke were very good. Recommend it.
Fresh oysters, clams and fishes. One of the best I've had in years. Our server was really nice and gave suggestions on what we should try.
Dined recently for a business lunch. We had oysters to start (creamy, tasty, just right) and the shrimp bruschetta. The shrimp bruschetta are small bites so we ordered so each of us can enjoy one piece (one order is 2 pieces). So glad we did since it was a memorable bite with big shrimp, creamy tasty guac and subtle fruity grapefruit! My lunch was the chowder and oyster slider combo. This is a calorie splurge but portions are not over-the-top so you don't feel loaded. The chowder was thick, bacon-y and had chunky clams. The sliders were amazing and good thing they small so you can enjoy each bite. My colleague order the halibut and he said it was very tasty. It was beautifully plated. Well done, GT Fish and Oyster!
We had such a great time. Both of us haven’t been here in a while and it just so happened to be Taste of River North Week. We got a dozen oysters, wedge salad, lobster roll, linguini and clams and finally finished off with the chocolate cake. Being from New England, I never order lobster here but it happened to be one of the best lobster rolls I ever had. My family is coming to visit this weekend and we decided to take them there on Friday. Can’t wait to go back! This will definitely be a regular spot for us for now on.
Very impressed waitress was sweet bus staff was on top of everything
I took a client to GT for lunch. The service was outstanding, and the ambiance was appropriate for a business meal. The soft crab sandwich was out of this world, as was the shrimp brushetta. The client was impressed by the offerings and left satisfied. I would definitely plan another business lunch at GT.
Definitely will return.
Great food and service!!
Great food. We ordered another round of oysters before we had finished the first round! Great cocktails.
Excellent fresh seafood. Staff super friendly. I was on crutches and everyone was so accommodating (not always the case in other places).
Scott was our waiter and he was terrific. I was not a big oyster eater, so he suggested the New Brunswick oysters which were delicious! Scott was attentive and the food and service was excellent. Cannot wait to go back.
The food was perfect. Soft shell crab was expertly finished. The mussels tasted great with the rich sauce.
Service and attention were fantastic. The patio was great and quieter than inside.
Wonderful food and service in a great setting. In a city with phenomenal restaurants, this is a stand out!
Arrived early for pre-theatre dinner. Restaurant was only 30% full but already seemed chaotic. Food was interesting, creative and delicious. The service was terrible which was frustrating because there was an army of staff. Seems to be organized in a hierarchal system to reduce personal service.
Manager apologized and took some $ off the bill.
Awesome service and outstanding food.
We have has a wonderful experience at GT the last two times we have been! The service and food is fantastic! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do yourself a favor and visit GT. You won't be disappointed, and if you are there could be something wrong with you. Just sayin'.
Excellent service. Great food. Restaurant staff were all friendly and accommodating.
The absolute best wait person who made the evening ever more enjoyable and memorable.
Food was outstanding! The clam linguine is off the charts!
Super fresh and innovative seafood! A treasure in the city!
Having just had dinner at Boka a month or so ago, I want to try all of the Boka group spots and this place was a real treat. It's upscale but not uppity and delicious but not drowning in theatrics. I loved it here and will definitely return.
This was a place to try after being bored of all the steakhouses in the City. The seafood was fresh and the service was EXCELLENT.
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.
