"I had an opportunity to revisit the Franklin St location after a 30 year absence. I have looked forward to the occasion after returning to the Midwest after a long time.
The meal was as great as I remember and the atmosphere just as warming..
Thank you for a memorable special occasion for me and my wife.

"You would think a mature restaurant would make a good old fashion. But that's not the case here starting with the poor drink and continuing on with poor service, by the end of my meal an hour and a half later I only had a glass full of melted ice never not a fresh drink or a wine list . I will never return."

"In going to Gene & Georgetti, I was fulfilling an experience on my significant other's bucket list. She has lived here all her life and had never been to the restaurant. I have been there a number of times, but it had also been quite a few years since the last. The occasion was her 60th birthday and felt it so appropriate to take her there. Upon pulling up to the valet parking spot and her seeing the restaurant sign, I wish I could have had a camera trained on her face. She was so excited to see where we were going.
The food was exceptional starting with the magnificent bread, through the incredible grilled calamari (a first for both of us) and then the entrees. She had bone-in strip and I had boneless strip. Both were grilled to perfection and the taste was wonderful.
The ambiance was all that I remembered it to be.
A totally exciting and enjoyable evening."

"The word Outstanding doesn't begin to describe the quality of the service we got at Gene and Georgetti. It is so nice to be taken care by such a good staff. The food was classic, authentic and delicious (very generous portions, that allowed us to savor the food next morning).
The room is so elegant yet comfortable and the wine list has great choices too.
No doubt that after all this years and many trend restaurants Gene and Georgetti are still one of the best choices.
It was a real treat to dine here!
Gracias,"

"Over the decades - the place, the people, the food -- all the same! Delicious. Generous. Historical. Perfect for those who enjoy experiencing what was - because it still is! Waiters (yes - all men) make their careers here. Ours - Jose - has been there 31 years. They read your mind and make you feel welcome, special and pampered. It's the real deal worthy of the Chicago food hall of fame."

"With USDA prime steak no matter where you go. The food was Grade A high-end steakhouse fare--blue cheese dressing and sauteed mushrooms were very good, in addition to the steaks. However, service was surprisingly average. Our middle-aged and theoretically professional waiter, while generally observant, was clueless as to who ordered what at our table. When we arrived during the peak of Friday evening rush, there was no valet to be found. During our only encounter he was slurping noodles out of a cup. Seemed to fit the bill for a relative seeking a Lugar experience in Chicago."

"It was our first visit - there to celebrate my wife's promotion - we found a friendly place loaded with good eats and Chicago being Chicago. Efficient, courteous table service enhanced by great before and after bar chat. Bravo, G&G."

"Took my dad to to G&G's after about 30 years (i have been before myself). The food and table side service was great, not a cheap dinner but the value for what you get it right up there with most similiar type restaurants in Chicago.
We did have to wait about 20 minutes past our reservation (on a Wednesday) but they may have had a bunch of random walk ins...but that gave us a little but if a rush feeling internally once seated."
