a little pricey and noisy but good food and location for downtown. So many downtown places are dumps. This one is not.
The Gage never disappoints. Great food and great service.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambiance. My only complaint is that I noted via Open Table that we were celebrating a birthday. I even mentioned the name of the person in my note. There was no acknowledgement whatsoever of the person’s birthday from the hostess or waiter. That was a huge bummer.
Maggie was very friendly and professional. We had a wonderful time with her. The food was excellent.
Salad wasn’t that great, but the gluten free and vegan pana cotta was the best one I have ever tried!
My fiancé and i were here from outta town visiting and didnt have a great experience. Our server rushed us to order and then never saw here again until she wanted to drop off a dessert menu then disappeared again and we waited along time which resulted in us getting our check and leaving. If service was better we definitely would have ordered more
Always great service and great food!
Best French toast!!!!
Staff very accommodating to my guest who is vegan.
Delicious as always! Loved everything from hamachi ceviche to fried pickles to crab cake to chocolate cake.
Our reservation was moved to the bar instead of outside table. Venison burger was DELICIOUS. Nice bar.
Patio dining means summer in the City at its best. Michael was our Server. He brought the magic. The Gage provided the setting for our leisurely evening of cocktails followed by 3 courses with wine. Flavors were exceptional. The classic cocktails have been recreated and made wonderfully new. We couldn’t leave until we had dessert and a lovely coffee. Do yourself a favor and check out The Gage for a posh lunch or dinner with a real neighborhood feel.
Seated promptly with a 1:30 reservation. Excellent drinks and food quality. Nice menu choices. Very good location if you are visiting the Art Institiute or Millennium Park. Venue is a bit noisy. Always crowded. Reservation are needed unless you want to wait or eat at the bar.
I have never had a bad meal here... a goto lunch/dinner/drinks spot when in Chicago.
Excellent food and drinks!
The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive.
Had a great evening at The Gage.
Quality of the food is excellent, the service is great, the atmosphere wonderful.
Maggy,, our waitress was super nice and friendly and made great recommendations. Music was nice and not too loud.
Will definitely come back.
Great service! Staff is friendly and accommodating! Central location across from the park and right on Michigan! Food is good!
Thank you so much for the wonderful food and service.
Just great food. Short menu, great atmosphere, attentive service. I already want to return.
Went to celebrate my engagement after proposing, great meal and drinks to remember forever.
Great service and great G&T. The asparagus soup and crab cake were the perfect afternoon meal.
Love the atmosphere.
A lovely alfresco summer evening of drinks and dinner!
Excellent fish and chips outstanding wait service. Special request for specific seating area was honored.
This is Chicago's most hospitable restaurant. Incredible service, excellent food, great location. Something for everyone. Love the Habanero Margarita!
Love this place. It's awesome every time. Highly recommend it.
Excellent beet and fig salad. Pork Chop tender and cooked to perfection. Halibut crust a bit too thick. Sat in the back where it is quieter and we could talk. Very personable waiter.
Good food and service. Nice atmosphere outside covered patio. Pricey. Downtown prices
In town for a visit and we always try to visit the Gage - food and service are great. The location makes it perfect for a visit to some of the great spots in Chicago - before or after a meal.
Tables too close. People next to us loud and distracting talking. Waiting too long for ticket. Dessert was outstanding though!
Wonderful ambience, food and service. When we asked for a booth because of a hard -of-hearing person, we were immediately moved to a booth where we could converse perfectly. Server and busperson were both top-notch and very attentive. The mussels, beet/fig salad, salmon and creme brûlée were all fabulous! A fantastic birthday celebration; we’ll return for many more.
Our waiter was wonderful! Took a while for the food to get to us, but the waiter handled it so well by explaining why and offered an additional drink on the house.
There’s no better place than the Gage for lunch in the Loop.
We have been to the Gage several times. The menu seems tired and the food options are just okay. There is not much to choose from. The food was pretty good but not impressive in comparison to other nearby restaurants at this price point. The bar is a nice place to meet a friend for a drink, but would not recommend this place for dinner.
SERVED ALCOHOL TO MY MINOR DAUGHTER! We ordered her a virgin cocktail but when the bill came it was priced as an actual cocktail. The waitress admitted the mistake with very little apology. I asked her to remove it. When the check came back she not only left it on there but charged my credit card for it. I then went to the manager who seemed to have very little interest in the matter as well. When I finally said I was going to issue a complaint her reply then became “What can I do for you now?” We completely understand mistakes can be made but to be so callous about such an error and then insist on charging a 16 year old for it boggles the mind.
Rosie was great!
Great brunch - food was fresh and well prepared. The berries on my French toast were piled high and delectable. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Great location for a bite when visiting the Loop.
