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

Went here with my parents and girlfriend for a nice evening out. The building and interior is simple, but just like you would expect and want from a old Chicago steakhouse. The waiter was helpful and funny. Everything we had was excellent--from the ribeye to the chicken and we all ended up saying that while the meat was fantastic, we... More

If you love steak (I certainly do), Gene & Georgetti's is a great place for a steak dinner with an Old-School flair. They offer a wide variety of cuts; as well as some great seafood, appetizers, and family style sides. Their service is impeccable, and dressed up in the old-school white coats, ties, and aprons. They've been around for over... More

Have wanted to go here the several times I have visited to Chicago. This last visit, I went and was glad I did. I was always interested in going to this resturant because of its staying power. Any place that has a long history in a city like Chicago, I figured was worth a visit. Overall, it was what I... More

If you're only in Chicago for a short time, don't bother with this so-so restaurant. It is rather shabby and would make a better pub than steak/Italian restaurant. The bread served is absurdly huge. Two people do not Ned a loaf of Italian bread and about 16 breadsticks. The thick bacon with blue cheese appetizer was delicious and is enough... More

Went with my wife on Christmas trip to shop. We love the atmosphere and the great steaks. A lovely evening. Italian sausage with peppers for an appetizer was delicious. Her filet was excellent. My bone in rib eye was more rare than medium, a disappointment. It was seared black on one side but still...I ate the cooked parts and took... More

Went for a Christmas get together with friends for dinner. Food was good. Have had much better at some of the other steakhouses in Chicago. All our steaks were undercooked. I had to send mine back to be cooked a little longer. I like mine medium but the center was almost raw!Can't review any of their Italian dishes as we... More
