Magnificent.

Another great visit to the Tortoise Club. From top to bottom, the greeting, the table service, the apps, the entrees AND the desserts - ALL terrific. Ambiance and quality here is second to none.

If you're looking for a place to go in Chicago that will leave you wanting to come back again and again, look no further, you've found your spot.

Did I say magnificent? I meant truly Magnificent.

What a treat! My husband and I tried this restaurant since they happened to have an opening before the show we were seeing at the Chicago Theater. The place was packed, yet they were still able to seat us right at our reservation time. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. There was live jazz playing in the bar which we could hear from our table in the dining area. I am looking forward to going back sometime.

Great atmosphere. Actually had a terrific singer come sing to my wife for her birthday. Service was very attentive, informative, and polite. Champagne lead off for the birthday and a Grasshopper compliments of the waitress at the end of the Birthday dinner. Only problem was my N.Y. Strip was not good. Tough and poor flavor. Will go back but avoid the NT Strip.

Excellent place for a business lunch. Tables are nicely spaced and it has a comfortable noise level. It is one of my favorite lunch spots, because it is easy to hear those at my table, without being overheard by other tables. Food is always good, service is nicely paced and always friendly and efficient.

3big parties around us having raucous Monday dinner and lots of booze.
Waiter- Crinbie??— was amazing. Made it worthwhile even if we couldn’t hear each other talk!

Like TTC for quiet dining. Disappointed this time but will try again.

The special was blackened halibut but i was able to order it not blackened and with the sauce on the side. It was very good. I love the ambiance of 50's supper club. The live misic added to the experience.

Loved our dinner. Amazing that the owner (who was there and told us some of the history of the place) looks just like his grandfather, whose portrait was hanging in the dining room! I wish I could remember our server’s name. She was fantastic. The food was wonderful - the meatloaf was as good as everyone says. Loved the non-corporate, family feel of this place. One of our guests who had never been before then took other guests there the following weekend. Will be back for sure.

This visit was for lunch with a couple of business colleagues. I've been to the Tortoise Club for dinner a couple of times and I would rate it 5 stars across the board for that. But for lunch the place is kind of dead. Nonetheless the service is outstanding and the food is great, especially their burger and their fries. Also be forewarned that the lunch menu is extremely limited.

The food was impeccable. The cocktail was the best of its kind that I had ever had. The staff was very accommodating for us being late (I called ahead) and provided a special touch for my wife's birthday. Our waiter was very sincere in his desire to serve us. It was my first time, but we will be back. Overall, it was a top notch experience.

A little jewel. Open Sundays (after opera). A variety of non-alcoholic beverages as well as old school cocktails and very respectable wine choices. Comfort food as well as some unusual offerings. Great, friendly service and an ambience of a true old-school supper club complete with a cozy fireplace. Loved it!!
