The Gage has a great outdoor patio with lots of warming towers. A great place for a delightful meal or a couple of drinks — or both. Awesome Millennium Park views, too.

One of the best venison burgers I have had - with a bit of spice. The service was very attentive. The weather was nice and they had a nice outdoor seating area along Michigan Ave.

I am a long time fan of The Gage. It was great to enjoy lunch outside on a glorious day in Chicago. As always, the food and service were terrific.

We really like the Gage and live nearby. However, the service on our most recent visit was extremely rushed to the point of being asked if we wanted dessert while my husband was still eating his entree. We felt that was bad form and didn’t enjoy the rushed vibe on a pricier meal.

Always great food and service. They have outside seating for the pandemic. Tables were well spaced and sanitized before seating. Nicely landscaped seating area with lots of heaters. Scanned menu or paper option. I had the roasted chicken Coq au vin style. Just delicious! It was the nicest way to celebrate fall and forget ( for a moment) all the craziness.

Excellent food and great service. We felt like we were glamping while eating next to the heaters. The servers put the cutlery on a plate instead of the table, this was noticed and appreciated. Everything was delicious. That cinnamon roll heats up well and Is just as good the next day as it was in the restaurant. Order one to take home or to a friend.

With all that said, the huevos rancheros needed a well seasoned pico to make it great, and the pancakes were too tough to cut with a fork. I suspect they were over mixed. They were tasty but tough. If ordering for a kid, do so Possibly sans berries and berry sauce.

We will be back sir sure.

A great dining experience all around. The setting is very comfortable with tables shielded from the sidewalk by planter boxes. The heaters work so well that I had to take my jacket off. The menu items the we had included Beef Bourguignon, fish and chips, and several very tasty appetizers. Everything was delicious. The service was as it should be - very attentive and accommodating..

Decent American bistro food. Nothing outstanding. The noise level was moderate but that may have been due to covid-19 restrictions. Could be a fun place once the pandemic is over

It was nice to finally get out! We were going to sit outside but it wasn't too crowded
so we went in. Our waitress was wonderful the Somalia recommended a delicious wine we don't usually order; we'll order again! Kale salad with lobster for me and Lobster BLT for my husband delicious!

I know it's Covid. I ordered soup and a salad. The soup was bland, bland, bland. Because there are no salt and pepper shakers on table, I couldn't improve it. The salad--mixed greens was fine--over dressed. M friend ordered beets which she said were good but her pasta dish was very light on pasta.

We need places like the Gage to stay open. It starts with the kitchen.
