Excellent staff, food, and great food prices. Wine pricing is overly
This is a great place! The atmosphere is classy and cozy, the live jazz in the bar is a great complement to a manhattan or old fashioned and the service is outstanding. I've been here a few times and it's always wonderful. The only downside to this last visit was...my food was luke-warm. I had the scallops and felt they could have been cooked a bit more but the whole plate, the risotto as well, was just warm, not hot. Other than that, loved it.
Kendra the server was amazing! We love the food and experience!
Thank you so much for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club and sharing your experience. We certainly appreciate your mention of Kendra. We're quite proud of the level of service we offer here. All the best from the Tortoise family
Always, always, always a great choice....the Beef Wellington was the best I have ever had. Keep it up!!
Hello and thank you so much for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club! It's so great to hear our Friday Night Beef Wellington is such a hit. Thank you also for mentioning that we are "always a great choice", we appreciate that. Just a reminder that Chicago Restaurant Week is beginning January 24 and we have a fantastic menu offering for you. All the best from the Tortoise family
We visited the Tortoise Supper Club to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. The server and restaurant took great care in celebrating with us and making us feel special. Thank you!
Thank you so much for making the Tortoise Supper Club part of your anniversary celebration. We are happy to do everything we can to make celebrations special for our guest and its great to hear we hit the mark with you. All the best from the Tortoise family.
In North America’s best food city, this place has quickly become one of my favorites.. I’ve been twice in the last month, and will continue to frequent both the restaurant and lounge.
Everything was spot on with dinner: from wine/cocktails to every course, to the after dinner drink in the lounge with great live jazz... perfect for a date, or group of friends.
Service is top notch and very friendly.
Thank you, Michael, for becoming a regular here at the Tortoise Supper Club. We love when our guests take full advantage of both our dining room and our lounge for our live music. We look forward to seeing you again and again. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Great atmosphere. Food was excellent, servers were were attentive, helpful and engaging. Went into the bar for a drink after dinner as they had a jazz trio playing in the bar. Very nice way to finish up the evening.
Thank you, Brad, for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club this weekend. Hearing how you enjoyed your evening makes us very proud to be able to offer guests a full experience. We hope you'll join us again soon...Chicago Restaurant Week is coming up! all the best from the Tortoise family.
I really appreciate Tortoise Club; the ambiance, the service the delicious food and cocktails! And I appreciate the music in the bar area, and that while trying to have a conversation at the table you can hear each other! I love coming here!
Hello Lori, and thank you for your appreciation. It's very gratifying for us at the Tortoise Super Club to hear we hit the mark with our guests and they return again and again. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Always consistently good. Excellent service! I would like them to serve rolls or bread prior to the entrees.
Thank you, Jeff, for your feedback on your visits to the Tortoise Supper Club. We always value our guests suggestions. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Phenomenal restaurant. The food, service and ambiance is incredible. One of my favorites.
Thank you, Tiffany, for listing the Tortoise supper Club as one of your favorites. We hope to see you again and again. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Long time lover of this place. I send everyone I know here from business to dates to parties. Overall great price point, everything is cooked perfectly and the vibe is top notch. Our last server dropped a bit of an attitude for a min but quickly recovered so nothing that would deter me from coming back.
I love the steaks and the lamb, but my husband swears by the pork chop. My brother tried the meatloaf and told me a second time how great it was when we spoke again. So I’m guessing that should be a must order item. The seafood platter is different them most I have had and my fav from that was the octopus and hummus.
Don’t pass this place up. It’s a hidden gem and should be tried by all.
Thank you so much joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club again and again, and a special thanks to your recommending us to friends and business associates alike. Your brother is right, by the way, the meatloaf is extremely popular! We're also gratified to here you enjoyed our new Seafood Platter. We hope to see again soon, after all, Chicago Restaurant Week is just a short time away. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Our trip to the Tortoise was outstanding - food was great, ambiance was great and the service was superb. Kendra helped us out and she was a delight.
Thank you so so much, Julia, for deciding to spend your New Year's Eve with us at the Tortoise Supper Club. Thank you also for mentioning Kendra. We're a family-owned and operated restaurant and we're very proud of our staff. We hope to see you again soon. All the best in the new year from the Tortoise family!
The food and the service was great! I would go back again.
Thank you, Steven, for making the Tortoise Supper Club part of your New Years celebration. We hope you do join us again in the near future. All the best to you in the new year from the Tortoise family!
This place is fabulous!!!!
Florentino took amazing care of us and the food was phenomenal. The ambiance cannot be beat.
Thank you so much for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club on New Year's Eve, aand thank you for compliments to Floretino. We really appreciate the feedback on our staff. All the best to you in the new year from the Tortoise family.
Top notch service. Great intimate feeling. Food unbelievable.
Thank you, Shannon, for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Happy New Year from the Tortoise family!
The food was ok. There are far too many good restaurants in Chicago for me to ever go back. My steak wasn’t very good. The sides were fine. Service wasn’t great. I would go back for a drink and the live jazz but that’s about it.
We were greeted very warmly by all the staff and had a card on our table acknowledging our wedding anniversary. Food was great, service was exceptional. My only "negative" critique was that the pace was extremely efficient which was a bit faster than I expected, I wished the time there lasted a bit longer. As for my wife, she rates efficiency over everything else. That's what I get for marrying a life long engineer. Thanks for making our anniversary a great evening.
Thank you, Janice, for making the Tortoise Supper Club part of your anniversary celebration. We really appreciate you taking your time to give us your feedback on your evening. We're happy to have made your anniversary a great evening. All the best to you in the new year from the Tortoise family!
Fantastic experience all around.
This place never disappoints. Always a greasy time, with great food and ambiance too.
Thank you for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club and making us one of your regular stops. Happy New Year from the Tortoise family!
It was holiday time so our experience was probably influenced by the number of big parties around us making conversation almost impossible. Otherwise it was a fabulous place, specify your needs up front and perhaps you can be seated in a quieter area. We did not want to make a big deal as 2 of our guests had the time of the reservation wrong and arrived very late. Everyone was very accommodating and worked around late arrivals. We will go back when in Chicago again!
Hello Denise. Thank you so much for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club. Yes, the Hholidays are hectic and we're sorry the bustle complicated your conversation. Thank you for understanding and we're so glad you had a good time. We can't wait for your return to Chicago. All the best to you in the new year from the Tortoise family.
Our server, Sergio, was terrific, very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Food was wonderful, exception steak, ordered"very rare" came more like medium. Still good though. The Branzino was magnificent. Deserts were out of this world and too tempting. We'll be back again and again.
The restaurant was SO HOT it was unbearable.
Amazing from the food to the service to the ambience. Huge portions! Great special night!
Great food and experience. Will definitely go back
We were a party of 4 celebrating a birthday. This is a special occasion restaurant! The wait staff was happy ,helpful, and obviously wanted us to have a great evening. The food is excellent. Our table ordered salmon, cheese burger, beef Wellington, and vegetarian plate. Everyone was pleased. Save room for the creative desserts! Great cocktails and wine selections. The birthday serenade was very special.
Thank you, Nancy, for making the Tortoise Supper Club your birthday destination this time. We’re so glad you came on Beef Wellington night, and thank you for the shout-out for our desserts. We employ a full-time pastry chef and we’re very proud of her and her offerings. Happy Holidays from the Tortoise family!
We had a late lunch/early dinner and were there during the transition from lunch to dinner. This delayed the service and the food somewhat. Fortunately we had good camaraderie and the food was excellent.
Hello and thank you for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club, Steve. Yes, the transition between lunch and dinner is always difficult in every restaurant and we appreciate your understanding. Please do join us again for a leisurely dinner. Happy Holidays from the Tortoise family.
This place is family owned and the owner was the one taking us to the table and welcoming us into the place like it was his home. That’s a rare experience in Chicago. Food was amazing, waiter was amazing, 10/10 would recommend.
Thank you, Lauren, for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club. A true family-owned and operated restaurant IS a rare thing in downtown Chicago and we’re so glad our food and service hit the mark with you. Happy Holidays from the Tortoise family!
Food is good but nothing that interesting. Price is typical downtown business price so a bit higher. Had an ice tea, soup and a sandwich with tip it was $42.00
Our server was amazing!
Thank you joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club, Mark, and thank you for the thumbs-up to your server. We really appreciate the recognition of our staff and their efforts. Happy Holidays from the Tortoise family!
Really wonderful experience! I love how cozy and festive it is around Christmas time. It's old school Chicago vibes, mahogany bar and crown molding, beautiful wrap around leather booths. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you, Jessica, for the comments on our holiday ambiance. We hope to see you again soon, maybe for our weekend live jazz. Happy Holidays from the Tortoise family!
Service was slow 2 hour work lunch we all had to move meetings.
Great food, great service. It was loud, but in a good way if you like a lot of energy. Live jazz band in the bar area was really good but not loud at all in the dining area. Loved the ambiance.
Been here three times prior with a much better experience. Our group of four was seated in the corner of the bar service area. The noise level made conversation difficult and we were continuously being bumped by bar patrons and those waiting to be seated. There was a walk-in cooler for the bar that was directly across from us that provided a blast of cold air throughout the entire evening. Prime rib was tough and lacking flavor! As I mentioned, we've had much better dinners here in the past. Our reservations were made several weeks in advance, so I feel we should have had a better seating location than in the back corner of the bar.
Our server, Matt, was exceptional. He was incredibly thorough and attentive.
Our waiter never register my friend’s need for a vegetarian menu even though my friend had asked for a vegetarian menu for 5 times
Hello there and thank you for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club this weekend. We're very sorry about the misunderstanding over the vegetarian options we offer. With your permission I'd like to put you in touch with our owner, Keene Addington to discuss your experience. If you could please send and email address and/or phone number to: george@tortoiseclub. c o m
A perfect birthday dinner- impeccable service, cocktails, and food, family-owned hospitality that is hard to come by, and enough dim, jazzy, Old Chicago ambiance to take you back in time. Cannot believe I have lived in Chicago all my life and this was my first visit to the Tortoise Supper Club. Absolutely will not be my last.
Absolutely the best in every respect!! From the front of the house to the back everyone made it a magical experience!! Hats off to those who work so incredibly hard to provide the patrons an incredible evening!!!!
I love this place. Only thing is that it's super dark. Be ready to use your phone to read the menu.
