I personally had the pleasure of joining my husband for lunches & Dinners for many years. They always greeted us with love, sat us at a particular table that they held for us, & posted framed pictures of my husband and many of his friends which, at time to be placed around a table that would accommodate whoever wished to...

Ordered filet medium. Came back rare and server agreed. Sent it back. Brought steak I had cut in half and refired which means all the juices have left the steak and it is dry. Sent it back again and told them that for over $40 I expected them to cook a med steak correctly. Well, they did it again, and... More

The city of big shoulders is known for its beef and of course Italian food. This place is a testament to the city's heritage and its roots go back to the 40's. The place its deceptively large and you feel like you've entered a time warp (in a very good way). Went here with a large group for a business... More

This place has great Italian food and will give you lots of it! A bit high-class for my tastes, but very delicious. The waiters keep an eye on you to fulfill your every wish and need.

Need a reservation but very high end dining! The staff is very friendly & accomodating! Great to see the waiters in white shirts/ties/and aprons! Bit on the pricey side but worth every cent!

Like travelling to another era, Gene and Georgetti brings back the memory of going out for a special meal, a la the 1950's , and the vision of lots of meat- American style- giant steaks and chops overflowing the platter. A half portion means one chop versus two or more. A harbinger of the old Chicago of stockyards and meat... More

Stopped in with a client on a Tuesday night. Lots of Italian and steak options on the menu. Large portions. Great service. Good privea. Classic old school Italian decor. Absolutely love this place. I'll be back on my next trip to Chicago! Don't be afraid to split portions. You will not be hungry.

I don't get into downtown Chicago often but when I do G & G is the place for me. Great lunch. Service as usual is impeccable. Bread and butter to start. Clam Chowder and a prime rib sandwich. Great Au jus. Even the ginger ale is great!

The steaks are amazing and the service is second to none. Get two or three of the sides to share if you have a large party.
