We ordered the Roasted Bone Marrow, Asparagus, and the cookie desert, which were all amazing! The drinks are nice too, and the atmosphere is a huge plus :)

My husband and I have been coming here once or twice a year for years. We both agree that it gets better everytime. The sides are AMAZING.

You have to ask for "The Library" to be shown to the private and cozy downstairs room with candles, heavy wood paneling, and the atmosphere of a Prohibition-era speakeasy. It's hidden behind an unmarked door down the hallway past the restrooms. Cool vibes, great bartender,...More

This is the darkest restaurant any of us had ever been to! We all had to pull out our cellphones to light the menus so we could decide what to eat. We ordered the bone marrow, which was very good. The steak tartar is fantastic...More

This restaurant is a great place to visit. There were three of us for dinner and we shared most items. The only dish lacking was the burger which was fine except for lacking enough salt and pepper in the meat. We had the beet salad...More

I admit I was concerned taking our kids (10 & 8) with us to Gilt but we had a great experience. After being reseated to a table with a better view of the restaurant we had a great meal! James was our waiter and took...More

While on a business trip, my librarian colleagues and I decided to investigate one of the "hidden bars" of Chicago--a speakeasy aptly named "The Library," found in the basement of The Gilt. Sadly, it is closed on Monday (the day of our visit, of course)...More
