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.

Our visit to Gene and Georgetti was an excellent dining experience. At the start we were greeted in a friendly manner and promptly taken to our table. No wait, even though it was at prime time. Our server was professional. We had the right amount of time for drinks and apps before ordering dinner. Service was prompt, the food good and the portions large. The price was fair. The restrooms were clean as well. In summary, this was a fun place to have dinner. Despite what the other reviews say, we were treated as well or better than a Chicago alderman.

If you love old world style restaurant atmosphere, Gene & Georgetti's greets you in style! You walk in the front door to the long wood bar with a 'true' bartender to greet you. Table clothes on the tables and waiters who are truly professional. The food is outstanding from the salads to the entrees (amazing steaks!), the sides and don't forget dessert! Gene & Georgetti's is a Chicago icon. If you love steaks, veal or fish and you want the best, this is the place! By the way, their chopped steak is out of this world! It's worth having at least once.

I was in search for a great Chicago steak. Look elsewhere. Unless you are a regular they treat you like dirt. Sat upstairs , and led past empty tables on the bar level. When I asked about one of those empty tables, the employee looked at me and LAUGHED while shaking his head! Food was on par with what one would find at your local Ponderosa or Sizzler. Steak tough and overcooked, side were average.( better sides at your local Golden Corral) All in all a HUGE waste of $. Did notice that the food served to the tables for the "regulars" looked much better than ours,guess the newbies get the leftovers. PLace was a total waste of time. Would of rather eaten at a fast food joint, at least they treat you decent(most of the time)
