Excellent service, very friendly wait staff. Delicious steaks and sides. You can't go wrong!! My fillet looked like a baseball, and it was cooked to perfection!

Great Italian steak house. Wet aged prime beef cooked in a 1300 degree furnace that comes out perfectly. Service is the best and the rib eye I had was cooked to perfection. A must if you're coming to Chicago.

I went to G&G's fairly often 35 years ago when I worked in the area. I was in Chicago this week and tried it again. It was not what I remembered. We were seated in the back room, on the first floor which is outside of the dishwashing return station. The clatter of dishes was overwhelming and constant. I had... More

In Chicago with my wife who had worked in Chicago many years ago. G&G fit the bill for a throw back night. Comfort food, comfort atmosphere, old fancy....now an antique, most will say outdated. Great old guys waiting on you (hey, I miss my grandfathers).... very efficient, good service...drinks came out fast and I was thirsty. Not a lot of... More

I don't get to chi town often but from the last time I have been here it's a little run down. They seated us right away upstairs and the wine and the food were great. I had the regular size veal chop(which is two whole veal chops) and it was way too much for one person. It was cooked perfectly... More

Nice old style Chicago place with a HUGE menu. Lotsa steaks & chops...lotsa Italian. Dining rooms are open, and tables are close, so expect to hear every conversation around you. Service was good: waiter new all the ins and louts of the menu, but he did tend to hover, I.e., it was impossible to have a half inch of space... More

It's going to be busy. I assure you. We went on a Thursday night at 845 and the place was packed. That doesn't mean that you won't get great service though. We were taken care of so well. The food was delicious, we both got steaks that were cooked perfectly and twice baked potatoes. They bring you out a loaf... More

We visited on a Thursday evening - in a group of 12. The service was frantic but efficient. My wife had the lobster tail which was overcooked and not very appetizing. I had the chicken parmigiana which was average at best. For the money - about $160 per couple including tip - it was not a great value either. There... More
