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!!

I've passed this place many times and always wanted to stop in, but never had until this past weekend! It was fantastic and only wish I would have gone there much sooner. This is a must go place in Chicago!

Nice place to take clients or staff. More Chicago business vs. tourist! But, if you want authentic Chicago supper club experience this is the place. Upscale with jazz!

You will not be disappointed visiting for family or business.

Should be a “go-to” place half a block from the river.

The drinks were good. So was the shrimp cocktail. My steak was good but not great for the cost, $40. There are better places to eat steak in Chicago. Cherry pie was excellent.

Why didn’t I find this place earlier?? Been in Chicago for 4 years and just discovered this gem! I love this place. Cool supper club vibe, lively bar, great service and delicious food

Kelly was an awesome server. Knowledgeable and infectiously positive! The bone marrow app was awesome as was the walleye and the meatloaf. The wine list was good and also reasonably priced. Only thing that could use a little improvement was the cocktail list. I had a blood orange drink and it just wasn’t balanced. Too overpowering on the citrus. Could have used something to smooth it out. All in all it was awesome though!!!

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night to celebrate some birthdays. It did not disappoint!! We had Chad as a waiter, he was awesome! Every course from apps, soups, dinner and dessert were fabulous. Excellent recommendations from Chad and everything definitely over exceeded expectations. 100% will be returning the next time I'm in Chicago!

We came here before going to see a comedy show at the Chicago Theater since it was within walking distance. The ambiance is very "old-fashioned" but it was very nice! We both had VERY good martinis and had great service from Luke. I had a cup of the french onion soup and it was amazing! We both ordered the 8oz filet and it was good! We didn't love the cherry glaze on top but we should've just asked for it on the side. Would definitely come back!

I’ve had two delightful dining experiences here. if you’re looking for a clubby atmosphere with a nice variety of lunch options — including a delicious kale-quinoa salad — give Tortoise Club a try.

This was our first, but definitely not last trip to the Tortoise Supper Club. While the food and drinks were fabulous, the highlight of the experience was our waiter, Chime. The passion and excitement in which he presented the specials was that of a narrator setting the stage before a Broadway show - so much so that if you weren’t hungry before he started you certainly were by the time he was done. In a city full of amazing restaurants a great dining experience sets restaurants apart from each other and the Tortoise Supper Club certainly has that in Chime!

The restaurant is quite nice inside, we had 5pm reservation so was not so crowdy and noisy. We ordered grilled octopus, ahi tuna poke for appetizers. Grilled octopus was quite chewy, could be of better taste and texture. Ahi tuna itself was delicious except those blackened potato chips on the side. For main entrees - pan seared scallops, whitefish, 45 day dry-aged bone-in ribeye. Scallops and whitefish were tasty. Ribeye as medium rare was perfect, soft and melting, absolutely needless of marrow butter. Overall, it was quite nice dinner, except of annoying waiter and unpalatable Long Island cocktail.

Celebrating colleague’s birthday. Lovely card welcoming him @ the table. Sat us right by fireplace. Nice ambience.

Specials were delish! I had the smoked salmon & avocado toast. Filling but a great lighter fare for when you have go back to the office and work. Prime rib sandwich & grilled salmon plank with asparagus for birthday guy! He enjoyed his key lime pie!

The service is outstanding!! Definitely will be back. Charming old school vibe.
