Went here recently for dinner and ordered a ribeye. Steak was very good and cooked well. Had some apps and sides like creamed spinach which I loved. Nutmeg stood out which I liked. This is an old school type of place. They serve meat cooked well and a nice selection of pasta and other dishes. So, not just a steak... More

We just had dinner here last week. It was very unspectacular...average at best. Everything was nondescript,not a single item that we had stood out. While it is "old school" and the service was quite good there are far better choices in a carnivore town like Chicago.

Bone-in rib-eye and filet mignon were excellent as was the service. Choice of potatoes--cannot go wrong.

This was my first trip to Chicago and was recommended G&G's by several people. We traditionally love historic/long established restaurants and we love steakhouses. The ambiance of the restaurant is excellent. Packed, lively. Our waiter was friendly and provided excellent service. Unfortunately, we ordered the food and it went down hill from there. The crab cakes were funny tasting, I... More

We were in town for my husband's work trip recently and someone took several of us out here for dinner one night. Is it expensive? Yes. Are the portions generous? Absolutely. Please bring your appetite - or at least bring some home. I drooled over the Chicken Parm - it looked like enough to feed 2 or 3 people -... More

I went to Gene & Georgetti's on a Bucket List expedition to Chicago; my dad ate there in the 40's. I also enjoyed a T.V. review on the food channel that raved about the T-Bone steak entrée; no arguments from me, this place is the bomb! Gene & Georgitti's is a downtown place near the Elevated MTA train, extremely classic... More

Walking into Gene & Georgetti's I felt like I was 10 years old again. Restaurant decor was from late 60's, but boy was food good! Ribeyes and filets we had were perfect.

Old world charming Italian steak house with terrific food and service. Good wine list and "BIG" Cocktails. Steaks are exceptional as are Chicken Parm & pasta. Sides are huge and can easily be shared. Salads are OK but drowned in dressing. Request dressing on the side. Desserts were delicious.
