I challenged some business colleagues to find us a unique, top notch place for dinner while we were in Chicago and this was their suggestion. I am a big fan of “old school” places with character and this place didn’t miss a beat. From the service to the food, it was all excellent!
Couple of highlights…
– the grilled calamari and was some of the best I have ever had
– the garbage salad is a must try
– the steaks were good, nothing remarkable…(I tried a bit from one of the others)
– the Chilean sea bass and as phenomenal
– the carrot cake was excellent!
All in all, if you are looking for a classic place for a good dinner, this is your place!
If you are going out and planning to spend $100 + per person, I expect it to be special. This place is.
Our server and bus staff could not have been more attentive…2 managers stopped by to make sure all was well and the meal was everything I could hope for.
Old school Italian Steakhouse dining at it’s best with a wide range of choices to satisfy any appetite. We’ll be back.
This place was spot on. Old fashion table side service like a steakhouse or supper club should be. The server was extremely knowledgeable with the manager costing the table to ensure everything was to your expectation. My steak was aged and cooked perfectly. Try the grilled octopus as an app with a nice glass of red. Enjoy.
Had one of the finer dining experiences of my life here last night. Amazing food and the staff went above and beyond to take care of us. From the girl who took our reservation and made a table of 4 work at the last minute, to our server, to the floor manager who made sure our wine glasses never went empty. 5 stars all around.
Hands down, THE best restaurant in Rosemont and the entire O’Hare area. My son and I dined early and we could not have been treated better. Really nice people with the utmost professionalism. My son’s t-bone was prepared perfectly and the first word out of his mouth after the first bite was “delicious”. My lamb chops had a perfect blend of oregano and a hint of lemon and cooked exquisitely with just the right amount of charrimg. Francine is a hall of fame waitress and Rich, the owner, was so warm and hospitable. So, if you want to take your son out for a steak and enjoy a truly special experience, Gene and Georgetti is the place to go!
This Italian staple in the Chicago suburb is just as good as the classic downtown location. If you want an authentic Italian dinner or a fab steak, this is our favorite.
The Bone-in Ribeye was excellent, add the vesuvio potatoes and a few glasses of Merlot and you have a wonderful evening of celebration. Great service, attentive, friendly, and looking always to offer a first class experience. Ranks right up there with the best Steakhouses, they also offer some Italian specialties that looked great at nearby tables.
Fantastic! Classic Rat Pack charm.
Step back in time once you walk in the door but don’t let that feeling fool you. The host meets you at the door with his handheld technology making sure you are ready to be served properly from start to finish. Get there a little early for a classic cocktail served by formally dressed, professional bartenders. Gaze at the walls covered with photos of celebrities enjoying the restaurant over the years. Mind boggling who has shared the same space you now occupy.
Don’t worry about being rushed, but if ready, the true gentlemen seaters will politely carry your lady’s cocktail to the table. The experience has only just begun
Enormous menu of any type of Italian or Steak food you like. Overwhelmed? Ask the waiter. He will make recommendations that I have found to be 100% reliable every visit here. But, must try the fried ravioli as a starter. A mystery man has come in at 4am every day for 40 years to hand craft the marinara and bolognese sauces. Amazing.
If you are a 20-something hipster with a man bun who’s idea of a perfect dinner involves a mojito and free-range chicken, you probably wont like it. However if you are over 30 and appreciate old school class, a steak knife that weighs a pound, and an environment of what dining used to be…you’ll love it. Great wine selection. Our steaks were excellent and cooked perfect. Staff equally good. Enjoy!
Old world charm. We felt very welcome as soon as we walked in. Sat at the bar for a cocktail then the waiter took my drink to the table instead of having me carry it, such a gentleman! We were treated like famiglia and the food was amazing. I felt like this was a place Frank Sinatra or Al Capone would have visited, very quaint. Juan, our waiter asked what we liked and gave suggestions accordingly. Love this place and will definitely go back!
We walked into this place and it screams Old Chicago. It has a speakeasy feel, dark woods, random doors, old school decorative carpet. This place is old, but really that doesn’t give the correct connotation. It’s the oldest steakhouse in Chicago. It’s vintage, it’s a relic, it is FANTASTIC. The place was crowded with people at the bar, many you can tell are regulars and are like family. The staff treats everyone like family, and their reservations were spot on timewise. We didn’t make reservations at 7:30 and get sat at 8. We made reservations at 7:30 and were sat at 7:30.
Their bar cocktails are old school delicious. They make them by hand, muddle the ingredients (ie in the Old Old fashioned) its fresh and delicious and generous pours both in cocktails and wines.
Let’s get right to it…The best Bone-in Ribeye in Chicago! I travel and eat all over the USA and world and by far one of the best I have had. But let’s back it up and start with the freshly sliced bread and bread sticks. Watch out I almost wasted my meal on eating all of it (it’s that good).
Best steak in Chicago. And nothing ever changes here. It doesn’t need to. That waiter that served you your first time in twenty years ago or more might be the waiter you get tonight. It’s stepping back in time to go through the doors to enjoy something timeless in itself, great steaks and great food in general.
