A nice place - lighting was great - the service was superb - they went out of their way to fill our water glasses constantly - the server(s) were al pleasant and seemed happy to deal with and did their jobs perfectly. I would recommend anytime for those that want seafood however a good atmosphere and great drinks as well!

GT never disappoints. The oyster selection is on point and the wine list offers excellent seafood pairings. Dishes that have been on the menu since they opened taste as good as they did 10 years ago. You can’t ever go wrong at GT.

Tried all the oysters. Disliked the sweet watermelon flavor of one but the rest were nice to try. Had a crab cake, it was tasty.
We did kind of feel rushed because people kept coming by the table asking if we were done with our plates, even though there was still food on the plates.
I would come back for the oysters again but I would hope to have a better experience if I do return.

A boutique-like restaurant that makes you feel like you stepped into New England. Fantastic food and trendy feel. High-end wine and specialty drinks. A must if you are looking to eat in style and quaint.

First “just us” date in yrs (kids!). An avg restaurant, falls in line with what you’d expect for a slightly overpriced seafood restaurant. Nothing spectacular. Service was fine. We went specifically for the red snapper ceviche (menu fav), but was told they cut it (and a lot of the menu) due to pandemic affecting supply/demand. They also upcharge a 3-4% fee on every check in order to “provide health insurance to employees”…. So odd. Sounds like their trying to brag or excuse it? But if wait staff still smoke, etc, why am I paying extra for their insurance on my dinner date? I am self-employed bro — I’m paying this myself & for my fam!

Service was great, and food and drink choices were fantastic! I would recommend the lobster roll, and definitely try dessert with a paired drink.

Wow. That was the best service and experience that I have had in a while. I literally can not wait to return. This was amazing. There weren’t enough stars to give. My server was the best! The staff was the best. 11/10

First off, service was fantastic. Couldn't have been better. Some of the oysters that were served probably shouldn't have been plated. Cocktails tasted a bit vague and too sweet. Will give this place another shot, for sure.

My fiancee and I went here for her birthday dinner. I loved it! The seafood was great, and the dessert (20-layer crepe cake with sweet corn ice cream) was delicious and unique. The service was excellent, there when we needed but not hovering or obtrusive.

Weather forced us to move our patio reservation to the bar, but the staff made it a wonderful night all the same. Excellent recommendations both for food and drink, fantastic service, and everything was delicious. A great dining experience start to finish.

Was really bummed to come back here and not have the same experience we’ve had many times before. The service was outstanding - so no complaints there! Such amazing and friendly people who made us feel welcome and at home. The mains were just so disappointing. We did love the oyster and the desserts but everything else we were just not loving. I’ll be back for a drink and dessert but sadly this place isn’t what it used to be. Hopefully it’ll change or you diner, will have a better food experience!

Every food item we had: octopus, crabcake, oysters, clam chowder was fantastic. The service was impeccable. In fact, my girlfriend spilled her wine accidentally when most it was gone and they immediately brought a replacement glass. Really a great dining experience!

One of the best spots for seafood anywhere in Chicago!

Fish & Chips, the value on the champagne selection, and the oyster menu are all especially top notch.

Two thumbs up!
