Top notch

The food and service were amazing. I recommend it to anyone that's looking for delicious steak. We sat outside and the view was a nice touch.

Amazing crab cakes and best desserts ever. The desserts are huge though, so don't order too many.

Excellent fresh seafood! Drinks was good and if you go before 6pm they have one dollar oysters deal! We had seafood for the night but heard the sirloin with bone steak is really good too! Will def come back again!! 10/10 satisfaction if you want no fuss, really fresh seafood cooked to perfection.

I visited this place with my co-workers and really liked it. One of my favorites in Chicago since I really appreciate sea food. Lobster was awesome, especially with a combination of good white wine. I would recommend to try this plus to enjoy nice atmosphere.

We have been here before and the food is very good. If you're not a fish lover, you can have steaks from Gibson's, which is the steakhouse next door. Love their New England clam chowder. Definitely recommend it!

NOT inexpensive but well worth it. The Hawaiian Sesame crusted Yellowfin Tuna was superb. Complimented with a Riesling wine and a twice baked potato with cheese topping (the size of Rhode Island) was enough to make me sufficiently satisfied. This is THE place to be on the weekend. Entrance on the weekend is by reservation only. Very attentive wait staff....not... More

as we enjoyed our bread basket we sipped on wine and decided to begin with escargot . We both opted for the salmon entree . Our water was attentive. We sat on the patio and it was so much fun !

Took a group of ten out to dinner. Wine selection was exceptional. Many options for the dollar. Had almost all of the appetizers. I would pass on the frog legs. The oysters were spot on. The filet was very good. I spit the halibut and it too was exceptional. The only negative is that the place is very load but... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
