Stopped in for lunch before seeing a play and celebrating my birthday. Shawn was our server. He did an outstanding job. He told me he was new at the Gage. He acted like a seasoned employee. He had all the answers, checked on our table often introduced himself and wished me a happy birthday. We will definitely ask for him when we are back the end of February .

We have been here several times and loved it! The server, on this particular occasion, could not have been less interested in us and it was quite disappointing.

The Gage is one of my faves and for good reason. Not only is the food impeccable, so is the service.

It was a great experience. Was met by a friendly greeter and immediately seated. Server introduced himself and was very friendly. His overall service was great. The food here is always inventive and so fresh. I had lobster roll and it was delicious as was the accompanying salad. Can’t wait to return.

Stopped in at the Gage for lunch on a Saturday following a visit to the Art Institute and grabbed two seats at the bar. Turns out they serve brunch on weekends til 4P and the menu was really limited - a few breakfast options, a burger, chicken sandwich type stuff. Bartender doubled as a server - never cracked a smile or offered up any conversation. Cocktails were good, not great. Food was good, not great. Service was efficient, but clearly just going through the motions. Not terribly expensive or it would have been really disappointing.
