The gage was the first place we went when we got off the train to Chicago and they welcomed us with open arms and great food!! We loved it. We sat outside under the warm heat lamps and it was a perfect little lunch right before going to take pictures at the Bean! 🤗
Tables are a little close together, but the food and service is phenomenal.
Food was excellent. Service was quite slow, although the quality of the service was excellent. Very noisy, however we were seated near a table of 8 that was a bit boisterous. Overall, I would definitely go back.
One of the best restaurants anywhere. Great food and attentive service superbly managed to provide a wonderful dining experience, even if you have a hamburger. Can't be beat!
This was my second time enjoying the cuisine for brunch in the past two months. My party this time received subpar service, and the food was warm not hot and sadly not to the standard that was enjoyed in the past. I honestly cannot say the 150.00 spent was well worth 2 adults and 2 children.
Great spot. Good location across from millennial park. Food is always tasty. Upscale Irish spot.
Broiled green beans with Guanciale ( server should not say its with bacon ) ,
Guanciale is meat that comes from the jowl of the pig! ! There is no substitute!
Just educate the servers please. It was a delicious dish, loved it!
We enjoyed the food and service at the gage. We found it very noisy and difficult to carry a conversation.
wonderful food and diverse offering, desserts especially. the location made it a great choice for anytime.
All was perfect. Food. Ambiance. Service. Location. Looking forward to next time.
My cousin and her husband were staying nearby, so the Gage was a convenient choice. Our reserved table was in the extremely loud bar area. Observing our unease ( we awe all over 60 and 2 have hearing problems) our hostess offered to move us to a quieter table in the back which was very much appreciated.
We had the special mahi-mahi. It was a generous portion and nicely presented. Service was excellent. Beware it’s very noisy.
Loved the food we ordered especially the Calamari starter!
Always good and reliable. We enjoy this before every symphony .
Good food and service, somewhat overpriced wines, and a deafening noise level. Not the place to take a date or for a business dinner at which it is important to communicate.
I ate at The Gage with my husband and kids ages12,10, and 8, at the urging of a local. We were visiting Chicago for our fall break. I was a little concerned that my picky eaters wouldn’t have any options to choose from, but they offer off menu mac and cheese and grilled cheese. Our dinners were really tasty. Seevice was great. I recommend making a reservation. Wine was pricey. Great dinner!
Dinner at The Gage was nice once we got to the table. Even with a reservation, the hostess kept saying "Your table is still finishing up dinner", as though there was only one table in the restaurant where we would be seated. Finally after 20 minutes of waiting, I said "We are ready now." and she sat us.
Waiter, Wes?, was helpful, attentive and humorous. We enjoyed him.
Food was respectable however nothing to write home about.
I came here for a business dinner and The Gage met my needs and expectations.
We went to The Gage to bring family together. Service was attentive and upbeat. We were happy with entrees but a little disappointed in the Gage's ability to adapt to various allergies (and among our group we had quite a few).
Overall, we were happy and well satisfied.
I read the reviews and looked at the menu outside and decided to give it a try. The Lamb Loin was cooked to perfection and is served Mediterranean style with feta, tomato, cucumber, peppers and should have has watermelon and potatoes but I asked for them to be left off and instead had Brussels sprouts. It was delicious.
The restaurant is loud, if noise bothers you not the place for you.
We had an engaging server who was not intrusive. Really enjoyed our quick lunch before the CSO matinee performance. The house green salad with chicken was especially delicious.
One of my favorite places but a bit overcrowded today and even louder than usual.
Had lunch before our play. Very crowded but Allison had our table ready. Service was good even with the place almost full.
Neve disappoints, great food and wonderful service. Close to all downtown attractions.
Always a great place to meet up with friends and family.
Great food, impeccable service! Had an amazing anniversary dinner, thanks The Gage!
We went for an early pre symphony dinner. Service and food were very good.
I have eaten at Gage many, many times. It is one of my favorite places to eat. I was willing to overlook Thomas’ rudeness as we were on a schedule; however, when a couple sat next to us & he explained the specials, talked about the menu, & asked what they were doing in town, & then brought us the bill without even asking if we were interested in dessert, that was upsetting. Anyway, I have never experienced that before at Gage & hope I din’t in the future.
We had a group of 8 and had a wait just long enough for a cocktail at the bar. We scored the table in the front window and were able to people watch inside and out. Food was great for all. We would recommend to others.
Arrived early seated nine minutes late
Love the Gage! Great food, great service, and a great time!
Quite a surprise. A pleasant place to have lunch. The staff was friendly.
A pre-theater meal. We were running late. Called, and the reservation was held 15 minutes. Very much appreciated. I recommend the Gage Salad. Roasted brussel sprouts were also a hit. The bread served at every table is almost a meal in itself. Absolutely packed at 6 p.m. on a Thursday, so make a reservation. Moderate prices for really great food. Faaaaaaasssssttttt service...after finding out we had 7:30 theater tickets, the meal was out and served in about 10 minutes. Excellent, all around.
Enjoyed Avocado Crab Toast, Burger, and Curry Rice Dish. All were delicious. Service by our waiter, Trent, was excellent. All in all a fun girls night out!
Great service, good food. We took customers here for a meal - a bit loud, but still a good environment for a business meal.
Can't say that I have ever had a bad meal at the Gage. Keep it up Billy!
Our food was very good, however they ran out of the special fish and it was only 6:30. The place is very noisy even though we were in the quiet section. Service was good although we had to ask for bread. But would go back.
Great dinner -- fabulous wait staff! Go to The Gage!
Very nice BUT too damn loud!
The Gage was a nice place, but for someone who avoids touristy heavy food places I somehow wound up here anyway. It was super convenient and the people there were friendly and warm. I just have to say as a spoiled foodie, I would not go back for dinner again. Perhaps a nibble and a cocktail before a show nearby.
If food is not your number one reason for heading out, then by all means, it is a great atmosphere with very nice people working there. At our table we had a decent burger, some coconut vegetarian curry that was very heavy and soupy, and the truffle fries which were nice. The two sides, one of green beans and another of root vegetables tasted like something my grandma would make. Simple and bland with no highlights to their natural deliciousness at all.
