Old school charm!

I will preface my review by saying I don't eat meat. So why,you ask, would I go to a steakhouse? Because I was with my lovely daughter who is finishing her phd and she wanted to go to G&G on our long weekend trip to Chicago. We hade a wonderful meal. My daughter raved about the small filet.

If you judge how good a dinner is by how long you stay there enjoying it, then three hours for dinner would earn you five dots. We had early reservations with plans to catch a show at Second City, but the show was cancelled. That worked out well, because we ended up enjoying an amazing dinner with friends all that... More

My first visit to G&G was quite a few years ago as a guest of a friend. I was very impressed at that time and nothing has changed. We opted to have a table on the first floor. We were a little early on a Saturday night and the place was filling when we left before 6 pm. G&G has... More

OMG! Another stop I have to make during my trips to Chicago! A true old school gem with waiters that have been serving for over 30 years. The lamb chops are absolutely my go to entree along with the mussels in red sauce but don't leave without trying some of the pasta as well. It's all delish!

Was there for dinner this past week. Was highly recommended to us. We were wanting a nice steak dinner during our week in Chicago. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is cozy. The servers very professional and attentive. My filet was probably the best I have ever eaten. My husband ordered a bone-in ribeye and it was cooked to perfection... More

I haven't rated any resturant a 5 yet, here it is. Took a customer and co-workers out last night to find a good steak. There were 7 of us and we ended up ordering 5 different cuts. Sides were enough to share, service was very good, my pork chop (which was actually two) was spot on. Cooked perfectly and the... More

We enjoyed a great meal and the Chicago ambience.We. Celebrated our 52 anniversary with a fantastic steak dinner that we shared and took home enough for an additional dinner at home the next day. As usual the waiter was exceptional and treated us to a celebratory dessert. We try to dine there each anniversary as the food is consistently good... More

Good steak, could have used more salt/seasoning. The salad was very 70s but the Italian dressing is good. The potatoes that came with the steak weren't evenly cooked---not crisp on one end and overdone on the other. The service was good and I had a great super Tuscan red wine by the glass.

Ok, lets start by saying we showed up 10 minutes early for our reservation at 7:15 pm only to be told we booked into the Rosemont location. The host was imperious and despite available tables would not seat us until the 7:30 reservations were all seated. He shooed us away. So we went outside and signed onto open table where... More

Whether you are a tourist, here on business, or dining alone at the great albeit small bar, G & G is the quintessential old Chicago steakhouse. It is off the beaten path to a degree, but worth the trouble of getting there. You imagine a lot of deals/decisions were made and memorialized on napkins at this place back in the... More
