We arrived late in Chicago and was able to get dinner at the Gage. Food was excellent! We ended up just ordering appetizers and dessert due to the late hour. The Poutine is a must!!! It is a large portion which is a meal in itself. Great flavors with a kick to it. We also ordered the fried pickles and... More

In Chicago for a weekend visit and took the family and some friends from Oregon. Every meal the party of 8 ordered was outstanding. The sauces were great, the wine selection was great, service was great and the atmosphere was excellent. Make sure you save room for dessert. Keep doing what you are doing and don't slack off on anything.... More

It is our last day before we take off to the airport, we were a bit of a rush. One of the managers spotted our eagerness to order, she provided us 100% attention and ensure our food and drinks are promptly arrive without delay....so we managed to finish our lunch without wasting any waiting time. Excellent food.

Went to the Art Institute and Millennium Park --- and was very hungry so went the the closest place that had good reviews on TA. I pat myself on the back because this place was just perfect on a very cold day. The staff were so nice (very helpful accommodating our 15 month daughter) and us. The wait staff were... More

Located just off of Millennium Park this is a great local place for foods, drinks and desserts before or after a meal. Opened late and full of locals, we greatly enjoyed the atmosphere, hot spiked apple cider, and desserts. Very good and informative service on a new menu. The carrot cake donut came stuffed with cream cheese icing and a... More

I have nothing bad to say about this place. The food (I had the fish and chips and scallops with pork belly) was magnificent in both presentation as well as flavor. My scallops were cooked perfectly and paired well with the pork belly and garnish. The fish and chips came wrapped in newspaper which was fun and were the most... More

Had a business dinner for 20 and the downstairs room was perfect for the event. The food was very good and the staff very attentive. Easy to get to on S. Michigan Ave.

We had an excellent dinner at The Gage. Our server was truly knowledgeable, patient, and took his time to help us craft a wonderful meal. It was a bit noisy but we settled in and had no problem with our conversation. After reviewing the menu and the specials, we decided to eat family style. After selecting 2 excellent appetizers, we...
