It was a great experience, good food but didn't love the drinks. The atmosphere is for older people but still relaxed. I recommend it for a casual dinner with friends.

We were about to walk out... we asked for a table for 7 at 2:30 on a Saturday, the two ladies at the front desk were not very accommodating.. told us it would be a 30 minute wait. (We could see plenty of empty tables.) As we were about to leave, the manager came over and asked us not to... More

Visited on a busy Saturday night. They were able to accommodate two extra guests to our original reservation for six at the last minute. While the menu may not be the biggest, it contained a variety so that everyone had choices. Everyone raved about their dishes. A couple of standouts were the Alaskan King Crab bisque and the Steak Frittes.... More

Excellent service that is very attentive. In warm months they have excellent outside seating. Its location is the heart of the Gold Coast with a great of people watching. The numerous meals we had the pleasure of tasting throughout the past several years. This is place to go especially if you are staying in the Rush Street area.

Stopped in Friday night for a quick meal before a concert. No reservations, but got one of the last seats, near a window, at about 6:15. From outside-- and judging by name-- it may look like a sleek, ultramodern bar, but inside the wood-paneled walls, tile floor and furniture create a more traditional (though contemporary) feel and relaxed vibe. Anyone... More

The location is fantastic if you are staying in the Gold Coast area. The outside restaurant design is very modern from the outside, but going inside felt a little dated. Service was good, but food was just average. There are better places to dine in Chicago.

Bourbon heaven! Stopped in for a quick drink to kill some time before having dinner. The ambience of this bar was awesome. Beautiful bar and decor. We sat at the bar and I was quickly overwhelmed by the selection of bourbon behind the bar. I was given a list of the bourbons and made a selection. The list had all... More

Gibsons Restaurant Group has a stranglehold on the restaurant/bar mecca at State and Rush Streets in Chicago's Gold Coast. It owns and operates Gibson's Steakhouse, Hugo's Frog Bar, Ristorante Quartino and Luxbar. Because my wife and I aren't drinkers or club-goers, Luxbar was our last visit. We're sorry we didn't choose to go earlier. For lunch or brunch or just... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
