We had the pleasure of enjoying lunch on a beautiful summer day and can't wait to go back!! Housed in a former millinery factory, we enjoyed the fabulous fondue and then the poutine for appetizers and split the special BLT of the day followed by a divine peach cobbler topped with lemon/thyme ice cream. Our server, Katie, was amazing...ever smiling and couldn't do enough for us! Bravo!!

Great food and service in a laid back atmosphere. Generous portions, very nice bar area and whatever you do, don't sleep on the dessert menu.

The menu is quite fancy yet affordable, I had an awesome spicy coconut scallops soup with a fabulous chicken sandwich. We had lunch here and it was great, probably very nice for dinner as well

A business lunch in Chicago? Try the Venison burger at The Gage! This has got to be one of the most amazing variations on the traditional burger there is! Dripping with melted onions and deeply smoked Gouda cheese topped with woodland mushrooms and fried jalapenos served with a side of red wine ketchup and mustard aioli this burger is NOT to be missed!!

I tied this feast to a standard side of fries and a pint of Smithwick's for a perfect lunch experience!

A very different and fun menu including a variety of wild meats. All our meals were delicious. Gourmet in preparation, presentation, and taste. Service was excellent.
