Food was good. Oysters were great. A bit over priced. Service was slow. It was really hot inside, didn’t seem like the air conditioning was working. It is super loud too - not conducive for quality conversation.

A truly great lunch offer, $25 for 3 courses - and what courses. Fresh, beautiful, great tasting. Kind and attentive service, nice place - I will definitely come back if I ever visit Chicago again.

Offers small plates to share, hot and cold. We ordered at least 7-8 different dishes and all so creative and delicious. Really loved the scallops, eggplant and halibut!

I've eaten a lot of oysters in my 68 years in too many locations to list here. Your Sunset Beach selection were the best I've ever had! I also thought the Monk Fish was simply superb. Will definitely be back for more of each.

As yet another fantastic Boka Restaurant Group endeavor, GT Fish & Oyster opened in March of 2011, and has helped redefine the American seafood restaurant. Michelin starred, and Food and Wines Best New Chef 2008, Giuseppe Tentori, has developed a menu that's half-traditional, half modern, in an everchanging small plates format. The restaurant received three stars from the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times, and 4 stars from Time Out Chicago.
