Gene & Georgetti's never fails to please. We have been in Chicago 4 days and eaten some seriously mediocre overpriced meals... This restaurant was once again the dining highlight of the trip. Every course was over the top. Service was amazing. Worth every penny. Options...More

They may not have the best steak in the entire city, but they have something that other steakhouses simply don't have. History and tradition. When you walk in here you really feel like you are walking back to a simpler time. The bar area is...More

We had recommendations to eat here during our visit. This is definitely a well known and loved restaurant in Chicago. It has an atmosphere of a movie set during the 50's (to me). Our waiter had been there 47 years! We ordered the filet mignon,...More

This place oozes old school cool. Nothing trendy or pretentious about the entire experience. Food was ridiculously good ... Sinatra and Bennett playing in the background ... Waiters ans Bartenders who gave a damn ... Perfect! Like going back in time!

Went here based on the recommendation of a local. The wait staff were classic and a wonder. Everyone was so attractive. We all ordered steak of various sorts. Word of warning, they do not season the steaks, that is up to you. The genuineness of...More

On a recent visit to Chitown 8 of us supped at this great joint. The service was tops, as expected and the food was as exceptional as in the past 50 years of going here. Can't wait to go again!

Having dined at the location in Chicago but not at the Rosemont location, we decided to give this a try. I have always loved the downtown location with the “old school” type charm. Although known for the steaks, I decided to try other dishes on...More
