What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

GT Prime feels your typical steakhouse in River North, but it serves a lot more than just steak. That’s why we like it.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Have been a few times to GT, excellent cocktails and service...this time however, the food was very disappointing. We ordered the ribeye which is my go to and usually a winner, but it was chewy, not cooked to our request and not very tasty.

The Maitre D was brilliant and apologetic and also didn’t charge us for the meat element of our meal.

I think we won’t be rushing back any time soon though...

Everything was great. The only complaint is with the smell of smoke in the restaurant from the wood burning grill. My clothes smelled of smoke and had to go to the cleaners.

It was our anniversary and we started with a menu that said “Happy Anniversary”- nice touch! Then our very friendly waiter also wish us the same greeting. This immediately set us at ease to enjoy our dining experience.
And the food- outstanding from the salads to the steak and chops.
Wonderful evening in a lovely setting.

I was very disappointed by the preparation of my steak. The other elements of my meal were very good but my steak and my table mate's steak were overcooked. I also think the dining experience could be slowed down a bit to give patrons a chance to relax.

My first time at GT Prime. There were three of us. We ordered a variety of salads, sides and steaks. All of them were outstanding except, oddly, the steaks. There was sooooo much fat on the ribeyes, about 1/3 of it was wasted. The filet was cooked to perfection but it was difficult to even cut. The decor at this restaurant was just stunning. Loved everything about the vibe here.

I really wanted to love GT Prime and mostly did. The ambience was great, with a really nice interior. The service was very friendly and attentive. The appetizer was creative and fantastic. But the steak, the main event, was over cooked and under seasoned. I ordered a 12 oz bone-in filet medium rare but received it closer to medium well. My wife’s 8 oz filet was ordered medium but delivered medium rare with more appropriate seasoning. Too expensive for an overdone steak...

The meat was undercooked and not what we expected. The flavor wasn’t good and we feel as if it was overpriced for what it was. The lamb was prepared poorly and our son didn’t enjoy it, which is unusual for him as he loves lamb. Wouldn’t go back or recommend. Server never came by to check how the food was until the absolute end.

We celebrated a birthday with a group of eight people. We were seated in a round table in the lounge area called the Chef’s Table. It was next to the kitchen so the noise level was a little higher than normal but not bad. The steaks were excellent and the service was exceptional. Kudo’s to the staff for creating a wonderful evening. Even the Birthday girl’s menu was personalized with her name printed at the top...nice touch 👍

Came in for our anniversary - learned that they have valet, and the dress code is relaxed. GT’s was an experience before we even sat down - the entrance and interior have so much character! The staff was attentive, polite and not pretentious. I enjoyed oysters, and after mentioning a gluten sensitivity was given toasted cumin-spiced flax crackers while my husband had ciabatta. So nice to have that offered! Husband enjoyed octopus, the most tender ribeye ever, and honestly the best corn (with shishito peppers) I’ve ever tasted. I had the duck breast, which was cooked perfectly, but I was a little disappointed with the choice of flavors (it tasted like teriyaki). The creamy, buttery French mashed potatoes made up for it. We tried a few scoops of ice cream (cinnamon sesame / malt), they were not memorable for us. Overall - We’re not easily impressed these days, but I’d go back in a heartbeat! It was a really nice experience for a special occasion.

The staff handled it correctly but I was served a steak that had such a large vein of gristle that it was basically inedible. Ultimately, they took the steak I was served off of our bill and the manager and chef apologized. Add to that that I only went to the restaurant because I had checked online earlier that day and they still advertised sliced trimmed cuts of beef in four varieties. But, not available. If I'd known that I would have gone to any of the reliable high quality steakhouses in our neighborhood.

Our evening was special and we were made to feel like valued guests from the minute we walked in - the host / hostess station set the vibe for the evening. We were going to be treated like a valued guests, with expert service, drink, wine and food knowledge. Thank you to all! As a side note, it does matter - we have recently stopped going to a few restaurants in the city as we have received the impression that we were imposing on their time/day.

As important was the menu, how our waiter was able to answer questions deftly and made outstanding recommendations. Our food was prepared perfectly - nothing was amiss. I can’t help but call out the gentleman who assisted our waiter - he truly made you feel well cared for without being intrusive - European style....thank you to the whole team who made our evening special. We can’t wait to return; tell our friends; family and colleagues that we have a new favorite.

I really like the menu concepts, but execution is poor. GT is wildly expensive but the taste and quality of the food do not match. Also at this price point, you would expect the wait staff to be better trained to provide fresh plates, silverware and not to clear plates at the wrong time. I hope they can improve...
