Always great food and service.
Excellent food, excellent service, we got the pork chop and cheeseburger. Definitely make reservations ahead of time, as it was still very busy on a Monday night at 9:30.
Our server was beyond rude. She cut us off when we weren’t done speaking, we tried asking questions and she seemed annoyed about everything. She was acting as if she was doing us a favor, didn’t even say hello, we were baffled by the service. The food was decent and liked the atmosphere outdoor but the overall experience was disappointing.
Excellent service and food. Ate at The Gage several times while in Chicago.
We had a great dining experience after we moved from the darkest corner of the restaurant where we couldn’t see our menus. Food was excellent and we had a friendly and attentive server.
Excellent food and service, even when it was really busy. Will be back.
Food and drinks were delicious, service was outstanding. We left our phone at the table and we got a call informing us of this before we even knew we didn't have our phone! Would absolutely recommend
Always enjoy The Gage. Menu is still a bit limited but the food is excellent and the service great.
First time there, just wanted a glass of sparkling something by the glass (.Prosecco, champagne,etc) and dessert. Server was ok, clearly very new and inexperienced. Offered us rose, it was dark red and very strong tasting with very little effervescence - almost like box wine in flavor. We asked for something else and she suggested brut champagne but we failed to ask the price. As we weren’t getting a bottle assumed similar price to rose by the glass.
Ordered chef’s sampling for dessert. Desserts were very dry and somewhat flavorless. Like they’d been sitting around for a long time.
My friend went to the washroom and after telling a server who happened to be in the washroom herself that there was a lot of water on the floor the server said “I don’t care about any of this sh*t, I’m just waiting to go home. I’ve been here since 7am.” It was around 8:30pm at this time.
We got the bill and discovered that our two glasses of champagne were $48 total. Our tab for two drinks, fries and one dessert $85 before tip.
The cocktails were very watery with no flavor. Too pricy for a glass of ice cubes.
The food was good but not exceptional.
Excellent meal, excellent service -awesome experience!
Everything was amazing !! Absolutely amazing !
We always enjoy dining at the Gage. Excellent service and topnotch food. Highly recommend!
The Gage is consistently great. We were seated in a booth, a request of mine that was granted. Our server Archie was excellent! Practically across the street from the Art Museum. Can't go wrong.
I always enjoy eating at Gage and Billy Lawless is the consummate owner and host.
Always an awesome time at The Gage... Scotch eggs and steak tartar very good!
Great food, delightful service. Great location for pre-theater meal. Charming and private outside seating on Michigan Avenue. Highly recommend
The Gage is my go to restaurant when meeting friends for lunch. A shout out to the Pulled Ham sandwich and the Coconut Cauliflower soup. So good! A few things have dropped off the menu though, that I really miss. The Poutine, the half sandwich and soup option, and the baked cheese and garlic toast appetizer. Hope to see them on the menu again.
we were so glad The Gage has survived. It has been one of our go-to spots in Chicago for years
Cousins in town for their anniversary. We got a lovely booth near the fireplace and had an incredible dinner. The historic cocktails were fantastic and really fun to read the descriptions and we were delighted with the etched glassware.
We ordered several appetizers and entrees and everything was beautiful and well prepared. We tried the Michigan apple cobbler for two and you could have easily served four! A warm skillet full of cobbler, a pitcher of dulce de leche, and bourbon ice cream. A perfect ending to a lovely night!
The Gage is a great place to dine with friends and family. My wife and I have been here 4 times and never once have we have been disappointed. The food is incredible. I am a foody and love to try different restaurants and find this place to meet my needs for variety. Every dish is incredibly tasty and satisfying to the palate. The wait staff is also very prompt, knowledgeable and very friendly. Will obviously be back to dine here again.
Great place to meet with out of town visitors since it's right on Michigan Avenue and has something for everyone.
Attentive, knowledgable, cordial service. The food exceeded our expectations.
Nice place with good food. Our server was excellent and sensitive to our time restrictions. Place is a little overpriced for lunch, even in downtown Chicago. Would like to see more options for salads and lighter fare.
Not a wide variety of items to select from. Nice vibe tho
In every good review there is an aspect (or aspects) of the visit that makes it so; for this visit, it was the Maitre D. Admittedly, I erred in thinking that the reservation was for outside seating. He kindly and quickly was able to save our family's Sunday evening dining experience. Also, try the "Gage G&T” one of the best cocktails I've had in awhile.
Terrific food and great service. Went after the Marathon and it was fantastic. Would highly recommend.
Thanks to the wonderful hostess who was so accommodating for us. It was right at the end of the Chicago Marathon, so that part of the city was crazy. Nonetheless she managed to accommodate our slight change in reservation. We were treated wonderfully and managed even to get a seat outside. Thanks so much. Was so grateful for their gracious service on that day.
Service was average. Food decent. Great location.
Gage is in a prime location to access the CSO, Millennium Park and other attractions. The food is excellent, the drinks are first rate and the service is friendly and efficient.
Wonderful food and great service! Perfect location!!!
Perfect fried cod fish. Nice ambience and good service.
Great brunch - always love The Gage!
Food & service were amazing. Highly recommend!
The quality is excellent. Service was extremely slow. Very nice place though.
We ate at The Gage 11 years ago on a visit to Chicago. We dined there again last night and found it to be the wonderful restaurant that we recalled. From the time we entered until we left, the personnel were friendly, caring and thoughtful. Food was excellent.
Overall very good experience. Great atmosphere. Enjoyed sitting in bar area. Arrived 10 minutes and unfortunately it took another 25 minutes to get seated BUT the hostess and management made it right - comped a few drinks and dessert and paid plenty of attention to us. We went for the Fish & Chips and it was wonderful. Appetizers were great. All 4 in our party loved it. Highly recommend.
Excellent cuisine, service, ambience. Thank you for a great experience! Can't wait to return.
Pork chop cooked perfectly and apple crumb dessert was delicious
Had an amazing time at the Gage! Great drinks and friendly staff!!
