"Overall most of the dishes we ordered were pretty good, but the Winter Gratin was not. I did ask our server how it was, beforehand ,and she said good. She was wrong. Her service was good otherwise."

"We were at GEB last Saturday with friends to celebrate my birthday. The atmosphere is relaxed and vibrant. The waitstaff wears jeans but the service is impeccable. We enjoyed popcorn with truffles, fries with bacon butter, salads, and crispy salmon. We also shared a bistro burger - all were exceptional! We will definitely go back; probably when the weather is warm and we can sit outside!"

"We had to wait nearly a week for our week night reservation, but it was worth the wait. The staff is friendly and very efficient. Everyone pitches in and water glasses were never empty. The prix fixe menu was very nice. We added on the Wisconsin Cheddar Risotto because it seemed to be the "IT" item. The risotto was tasty but very rich. I would definitely bring a friend back to try the risotto. I'd shoot for summer to try and snag an outdoor table. Excited to have checked Chef Elliot's place off my list!"

"You can tell this is a high end restaurant run by a renowned chef who cares about every detail of his guests experience. The space, service and experience are all top notch. Once the courses start coming out, it only gets better. And with the open kitchen layout, diners are lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Graham working with his staff in his own kitchen during the night. Truly amazing. It is on the expensive side, and maybe best fit for special occasions, but definitely a must-try in the west loop."

"Our server, Patrick, was super cool- knowledgeable, friendly, and laid back as we never felt rushed with food or with our check at the end of the night. It was great to see Chef appear to oversee how the kitchen was operating. Owning only 1 restaurant allows him to make sure it's putting out the food that he wants to represent him. Patrick said he comes in almost daily, when he's not traveling.
Atmosphere- a little bizarre in the set-up, although being able to see in the open kitchen was a plus. Tiny restaurant- but made the most of it.
Looking forward to dining on the patio in the warmer months!"

"Went to sample the Tasting Menu offered as a part of Chicago Restaurant Week. We were surprised by the presence of the Master Chef Junior winners and Graham Elliot himself!
Tops on the list was the Shortrib Stroganoff, tender, flavorful with a truffle infused mushroom puree at its base. The dish was both homey and sophisticated. Potato and leek soup was comforting, but less exciting. Service was excellent and timely, in spite of a very crowded and bustling scene. We ordered a domestic porter ale and a hard cider as beverages, both complemented the meal very well.

"We were very excited to visit GEB, as we are big fans of his. It was rather disappointing to be honest. Asking the waitress questions about her favorites or popular items was very irritating. She seemed annoyed that I would ask for what she recommends and said the bare minimum. The waiter a few tables over was being so helpful and descriptive I tried to eavesdrop. I was exceptionally surprised given it was restaurant week and early in the evening, so no real excuse like it was a long tiring night. The food came and it was lackluster. Completely paying for the Graham Elliott name. Speaking of which, he did come in. Stood facing the kitchen and texting for about 15 minutes and disappeared into the back. It was odd at best. Even the table beside us mentioned it. Overall, we would have been better off going to Chili's that's how exciting the ambiance and food was... and it wasn't cheap!"

"We went on a Thursday night pre-Theater time. Service and drinks were excellent. App of Salmon Pastrami (?) was not very special, but the Cheddar Risotto was terrific. Loved the rustic taste of it with plenty of cheese. My dinner partner found it a tad salty. We ordered the 2 pound pork entree for two. The pork of ribs and loins were excellently cooked and presented on a tasty bed of farro with fennel salad topping. Only problem was that they never mentioned the price. Turned out to be $65. Not too outrageous, but I might have gone with something else had I known."

"When I made the reservations I had very high expectations for someone who's earned 2 Michelin stars. I have to say that my expectations were exceeded. Beginning with the greeting when I entered the restaurant to being asked multiple times if I had any food issues (I don't but I know many who do). The food was outstanding. The shaved brussels sprouts were a great start to the meal. The horseradish vinaigrette was light handed and really set off the blue cheese.
The Wisconsin Cheddar Risotto was outstanding -- by adding some apple to the mix some of the saltiness of the bacon was offset. This could be a meal unto itself. The main courses of both the whole fish (I loved the crispy skin) and the hanger steak with pommes frites were killer.
Of course no dinner would be complete without dessert. Graham Elliot's signature Banana Split was incredible. Paired with the 10 year old tawny port it was a delightful end to a great evening. My taste buds were singing the whole night.
The wine list has a nice cross section of wines -- many quite affordable. This is one of my new go-to spots."

"We had a great time here celebrating our friends birthday. Everything we tried was yummy. We tend to share food with the group we went with so we got to try a lot!
We had an excellent server who answered all our questions and was warm and engaging. It is a little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion. My only criticism is that it was quite warm in there for for the first half of our meal. It got more comfortable as the meal progressed, but we started a little hot. Dress in layers!"
