It’s sad but it’s not what it used to be..steaks are still top notch but while there is a old time ambiance, it needs a facelift. prices are high by comparison to the competition.

Little kid screaming throughout our meal at the table next to us. Expired Diet Coke with no flavor. It took 4 bottles of Diet Coke until I received one in code.

My group was in town for business and we wanted to have Italian before we left Chicago. Gene and Georgetti's came highly recommended by locals, so we gave it a shot. The meals were delicious (enough to share) and service was impeccable. Our waiter and his assistant were readily available but unobtrusive, ensuring that our group enjoyed the wonderful food. I highly recommend the Italian Lemon Creme Cake!!

Our first visit to Gene & Georgetti. The filet mignon steak was like butter. Just delicious! We also enjoyed the creamed spinach and potatoes. The wait staff were helpful and very friendly. Our water glasses never went empty! We truly enjoyed this restaurant. A real classic Chicago steakhouse.

Went for my wife's birthday last week and the food was subpar at best. The manager took care of my wife's steak because it was undercooked at first and after putting it back on the grill it came back covered in char and almost completely black on top. Not what we expected from a well established steakhouse. Wait staff and manager were great and apologetic but we won't go back.

Our fillets under-cooked. Medium was medium-rare, and my medium-rare was rare (blood-red, not pink). However, the meat was delicious. Lettuce was not fresh. Overall our meal was not as great as I was expecting. I will try to find another downtown steakhouse in the future.

Not sure how they keep doing it, but this place never fails. Great steaks, outstanding service and fair pricing make this Chicago landmark a “go-to” place for dinner at least once a month. None of the frills you get at today’s modern steakhouse, just good food and your treated like family. Doesn’t get any better than that.

When I googled upscale steakhouse Gene and Georgetti popped up. This place is not upscale in any way. The steaks were not cooked like a steakhouse. In fact the porterhouses was thin and came out so fast it had to be precooked. The steak was. It tender and the table next to me the guy was struggling to cut through his t-bone. Bread wasn’t even good. Didn’t stay for dessert because enough is enough. Service was excellent. Front of the house not very friendly and inviting. Tourist trap.
