This place hasn't been remodeled or updated since the 40's, but the food is amazing. We started out with calamari and a half order of fried ravioli - both delicious. We both had the bone-in filets. When they arrived, they looked somewhat charred on the outside, but the flavor was exceptional. We ordered the mashed potatoes for our side, and... More

Went to this restaurant for a large family dinner. There was no children's menu but they graciously split a spaghetti dinner for the two children. The service was good and served in a timely fashion. Food was good, but the price high and portions way to large. The portion size should be reduced and the price reduced to match. The... More

It was a big birthday year for my spouse, and dinner at Gene and Georgetti's was what he wanted. The meal was up to the challenge. He had a perfectly prepared steak and I enjoyed a wonderful seafood dish. The caprese salad is not to be missed! Even if you are not a bread person, try the rye breadsticks. You... More

This restaurant had to be one of the best for steaks that I have eaten in , the steaks are so big but tender and flavoursome at the same time , the atmosphere is buzzing , the decor feels like you are back in the 1950s ,the staff we're excellent too . Booking is advised as it's ALWAYS busy .... More

If you want the old Chicago, you need to eat here. Great steaks, potatoes, and old waiters. This place has it all. Food was great, cocktails were just okay, but nice wine selection. We sat upstairs...very steep stairs. great time

Much like Peter Luger in Brooklyn, this steakhouse has stood for decades in what used to be a rougher neighborhood, but is now getting hipper by the minute. They haven't let any of the new seep inside, however, which makes it all the more charming. The dining room is up a narrow staircase, and is no-frills in a good way.... More

We travel to Chicago annually and there are so many steak houses to choose from. We had been here many years ago and were never disappointed so we decided to give it a try again this year. There were 8 in our party, and only a couple of us ordered the same thing. Mine was a bone-in rib-eye that I... More

A group of 11 friends dined at Gene and Georgetti's last Thursday night. As we were from out of town, this restaurant was recommended to us by a Chicagoan, as we wanted to have a wonderful steak and pasta menu and NOT DESIGNER FOOD. This location hit the spot - an old established restaurant since 1941 exuded character and charm... More
