Tortoise Supper Club
Book your next event with us
We were there before a show. Our server was wonderful pointing out what to order so we could be on time.
Top notch service. Good food with nice menu. Good drinks. Great room and atmosphere, nice but not pretentious. Would definitely return in the future.
Before visiting the theater. Great food, and wine.
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.
Tortoise Supper Club is one of our favorites. The food and service are wonderful - always.
Great date location! Music was a little loud, but he ambiance and character made up for it! Will return.
Super blown away by the menu, our waiter and the ambiance of this restaurant. This is seriously such a gem in River North! If you’re debating about making a reservation, just do it - Tortoise Supper Club does not disappoint.
This was not my first trip to Tortoise Club, but it was the best. Our waiter, Chad, went above and beyond with his service, recommendations, explanations, and patience. Well done.
My meal was below average and the grasshopper milk shake tasted artificial
My birthday. The owners were thoughtful enough to give me a birthday card. This is a family owned restaurant with lots of class and attention to the customer needs.
Just what we were looking for! Excellent food, terrific service (shout out to Cameron) and live music! Great location too!
This place is great! Lauren, our waitress, was so knowledgeable and considerate. Everything came out when we were ready and not when the kitchen staff was ready. Food was amazing. Strongly recommend! Thanks for a great night!
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.
A great time as always. Waiter made some great recommendations that we loved. Definitely a great experience in dining as it used to be. A throw back to the good old days.
We had an excellent dinner. Our waiter was extremely attentive and gave good recommendations about the wine and food options.
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.
Great ambience! Attentive servers. Great food! Moderately priced. They had a nice live band. Overall, our party of 7 had a great experience! Btw, the tortoise pie was DELICIOUS!! My guy enjoyed his birthday dinner. Thanks!!!
We had a fantastic time at the Tortoise Supper Club. Our waiter, Chad, was outstanding and really made the evening fun for us. He had great recommendations but was not at all pushy. The food was incredible as well. We will definitely be going back.
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.
Great old world atmosphere - superior service - creative cocktails
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.
Exellent food. Good lamb.
Excellent food & service as the main dining room was fairly quiet with a private party in one of the banquet rooms. Nice selection and excellent service.
We had a wonderful meal and the service was exceptional.
What a wonderful restaurant. It is a true supper club. Great device, great ambiance, and wonderful food! Definitely will be back!
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.
First time dining. Food was fantastic. Live jazz was a real treat. Our server was fun and attentive. Will definitely be back!
Florentino was great. We were not rushed. Good food, good music. Will definitely return.
They were so nice to split everything we ordered so we could try allllll the dishes! Even played the entrees half and half for us. Loved it!
Great espresso martinis!
Tortoise Club is consistently the perfect blend of service, food, and atmosphere.
A wonderful dining experience.
Fabulous location, great service and food. Reminds me of an "old boys club" with the darkness and leather.
Had dinner with 2 dear friends to celebrate our birthdays- couldn’t have asked for better food and service. Kendra was wonderful. Started with a cocktail at the bar - fantastic. Love Tortoise Supper Club- has that classic feel! Will be back!
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!!
