Chicago always means a great steakhouse to us. This visit was Gene & Georgetti's and it didn't disappoint. Classic Italian/steakhouse, good service, prompt seating on reservation time (8:15pm) wonderful wine, delicious steaks, spaghetti, blue cheese dressing and desserts.

Wonderful food and service! Our waiter was very attentive on a busy packed Friday night right before Christmas. My husband and I went here because it was close to the theater and it more than exceeded our expectations

Went here for lunch on Saturday knowing we'd have beef we wanted to eat earlier in the day. We each ordered the 10 oz filet, a side of Roasted Broccoli (I had to get the recipe and the waiter told me how to prepare....it was that good that on Sunday I made some at home to mix with the leftovers)....

Group of 10 on a Saturday night with a reservation at 7:30, seated at 8:20. It was packed, no where really to even stand without running into a table, a waiter or someone at the bar. Server was very good, fried ravioli, calamari and salads were also good. The steaks, the very thing G & G is known for, is... More

I went with my adult sons on a Saturday night and the restaurant was busy but not packed. The walls are wood-paneled, tables are set with white tablecloths, and the waiters were mostly older gentlemen who seemed to be long-term employees. We had a crab cake and fried calamari as appetizers. I had a 7-ounce filet mignon, and both of... More

I haven't been here for a very long time but this place is still one of Chicago's best restaurants. The food is outstanding, along with a great wine list. Beside that, you will find the lunch crowd full of the old Daley Era Machine cronies wining and dining away.

The Classic Chicago Steak House in Rosemont very near O'Hare was busy tonight as my wife and I enjoyed dinner with two friends. Two out of Three of our steaks ordered came out incorrectly cooked---a significant mistake for a famous Steak House--even on a busy night! Our server apologetically fixed this mistake as quickly as possible while two of us... More

This is a good place for Steak. Good quality, cooked to perfection. Sides and salad are okay but not up to the level of the steak. Appears more like a neighborhood restaurant than a fancy steak place. I enjoyed that. Worth s visit.

We were recommended this place by some friends and so we thought we would check it out. Honestly it was much better than we were expecting! We had a reservation and they seated us right away at lunch on a Saturday. We were greeted and taken care of immediately. The wedge salad was the best I've had in Chicago! Even... More
