I have been to Gene & Georgettis several times over several years. I am not anybody special just a person that loves to visit Chicago. You would never know it from the service I have gotten. I have never been treated poorly and if I had to wait it wasn't very long. The waiters are 2nd to none and I have never had a sub par meal. I tell my friends next time you are in Chi-town you have to go to this place. It's a must for my family and I everytime we visit Chicago!

I chose to go here because of the reputation, no this is not a ponderosa or a more modern looking food establishment, this is a old Chicago style facility, as you walk in the small front doors, the dim lit area is greeted by older men to seat you, or you can sit at the old style bar, and fade back into the 40, 50 and 60s, the room is lined with signed patrons from many many famous people who have dined here from president Obama, to Hollywood stars both past and present, and the old mobsters as well.. the place reeks with history laden atmosphere!! the small but quaint area is just as it should be of the era of that time frame, I was seated and the older waiter too the order, simple, fast and to the point, im sure the staff have had years and years of fine tuning their style, they are good at service!! the drinks and meal came as expected and the steak, the way they store, age and prepare it was fantastic, over large portions, and the large slices of golden brown potato's, mmmmmm if you like old school traditional styles and great food, this place will take you back right to the era of Chicago's past history, its like a nostalgic ride into the past, you can almost feel the electricity and im sure the lurking souls still linger about.

Took staff there last night and was embarrassed. Had 8:00 reservations and was seated at nine, all the while standing at the crowded bar. The food was the worst disappointment. The liver and onions was not fit to eat. I actually ate only the onions. The portions were very large but so what. This place should never be rated 4stars. I would give it one star compared to the great restaurants in Chicago.

In town for a conference, and was told that Gene & Georgetti was highly recommended. What a crock. This was the worst steakhouse I have been to in 10 years. I took 5 other executives with me and I was embarrassed for recommending this restaurant. The steaks had no flavor and the "sautéd" mushrooms did not have either butter or wine on them. They tasted like they had been microwaved. The cost of the meal did not reflect the quality of the food. Don't get sucked in by the "reputation" because obviously the quality of the food no longer meets the level of the reputation.

I was here last week and visited several Chicago noted steakhouses. The place was too busy which made the service very poor and all the staff was a bit rude. I asked waiter for their best steak prepared the best way possible and it was not that good. The food was overpriced and the drinks were water-filled. My whole experience was much less than desireable. The best steak house in Chicgo is found on Erie St.

I dropped into downtown Chicago on my first overnighter on business there and asked the cab driver for his steakhouse of choice. He drove me up to Gene and Goergetti and said I could not go wrong. I stepped out into Old Chicago. Great atmoshpere and even better service. I enjoyed one of the very best end cut t-bones ever and it makes my mouth water thinking about this cut today. Filled the plate, and I mean a big plate. ( I serve Turkey at Thanksgiving on a plate this big.) The steak was perfect, and the sides were very good. The restuarant was crowded, but the waiters made me feel comfortable and important. They served quickly, but not so quick that you got the sense that they were pushing for tables. They were efficiently and attentive without compromise. I recommend G&G's to everyone who gets out to the windy city. I will make this my dinner stop whenever I find myself in Chicago.
