Go have fun at this restaurant. We loved the starters. The mussels we zesty and delicious with a great sauce. The service was top notch with the large number of customers they had. I was very happy with the experience.
Consistently amazing experience every time I dine at Gemini. From the moment, I walk in the door to every staff member, the organization makes all of their diners feel like they’re apart of the family and you’re dining in their private home. Exquisite food pairings while offering the comforts of home.
This is always one of our FAVORITE places to dine in Lincoln Park, the food and drinks are always outstanding and ambiance is always on point! Never disappointing here! Definitely be back!
Loved this place, great brunch! I had the lox and bagel platter. It was delicious. Quiet for a Saturday morning, which was nice. Great service and I loved the French bistro feel.
Gemini has never let us down. We always love the food and atmosphere. We will be back!
Have dined several times at Gemini - food is always great - but service was outstanding!
Best swordfish steak in town! Was nice to come in on a snowy night, very warm and cozy place.
What a charming restaurant nestled in Lincoln Park! Food, service, ambience & beverage were fantastic! Thank you Gemini for making a girls night out with family & belated birthday celebration special. Will be back!
All great. One wish. We were all the way in the back, away from the front door and it was cold! in that place.
Very good first time experience. Service was great! We had lunch today and hopefully will return for dinner at one point because the menus are different.
Appetizers were excellent - we had the octopus, lamb meatballs and mussels. We had a second order of lamb meatballs. Main course was mainly salads( the beats one) with steak and chicken variations. A bit more dressing might have been better but overall the salad was good. The chicken was super tasty but on the dry side .The steak was great. Drinks were excellent. We had a lovely afternoon and we will be back.
We were seated a booth. The noise level was very loud! Hard to have a conversation. The food and service were excellent. Good restaurant week deal.
Great place for a date or dinner with friends! Service is very good too!
Always a good time at Gemini.
It was a great evening, my friends and I really enjoyed ourselves.
Gemini has been my family’s go to Restraunte for so long - that my kids have gone from strollers to college. The food - wait and bartender staff are top notch. I have never written a review for them - because their popularity has grown so much within the neighborhood- that I fear I won’t get a table - but after years of loving them - I need to sing their praises !!!!!!
Delicious food and great restaurant week menu. Love the ambience, very cozy.
Great neighborhood place with superb menu. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall a great finds!
My absolute favorite restaurant in the city. Amazing food and exceptional service.
We find Gemini to be reliably good. My favorite dish is the swordfish chop.
Gemini was delicious as usual. I highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
Always high quality. Only issue that occurs regularly is when table not ready they send you to the bar which is packed and no room and in the way of servers going to kitchen.
limited brunch menu- nothing special, will not return
Great food and service
At the end of the night we looked at our bill. One had ordered a salad with salmon added on top. The server charged us for a king salmon entree meal instead. Also the chicken we ordered was very very undercooked. It was taken back and re cooked. No compensation was offered. The meal ended up being more expensive due to the mistakes of the restaurant and servers. will not be taking family there again unfortunately. Never had issues before.
Great service--friendly and attentive but not too much. Food was delicious!
We waited for our table after making a reservation. We had gotten there early, but then still waited 20 min after our reservation time. They tried to make up for the wait by bringing us out a gift from the kitchen (nachos) but then still added it on our bill at the end. It was fixed, but attention to detail even during a busy service would have made celebrating our mom's birthday a little more enjoyable. They also didn't bring out anything special for a birthday, which I thought was a little odd. We ordered dessert for the table, but didn't do anything specific for the birthday and just put a candle in one of the desserts we ordered.
Super disappointed in the food overall. I’ve heard so many good thing but the steak was pretty bland.
The New Year’s Eve menu was a great sampling of a variety of foods! The atmosphere was festive for the new year and the service was as good as can be with it being a holiday. Highly recommend!
I had never visited this restaurant before and imagined it to be a neighborhood spot serving good food at fair prices. I think that my perception was pretty spot on. We booked fairly last minute for new years eve and planned to then walk over to Zoo Lights at LPZ. It felt a bit like an assembly line and the food came out quickly but often times the wines from the accompanying wine pairings were not at the same pace. My husband enjoyed his beef wellington but I had to work hard to find much meat in the grilled lobster. The wine pours were fair but certainly not generous. I thought it was only okay but my husband enjoyed it more than I did.
The noise level is horrendous.
No coat check or coat room. Just a few hooks by the front door for all of the coats.
We sat in a curved corner small booth and had a great experience at Gemini. We enjoyed rainbow trout nicely prepared with fresh toppings, and the well prepared salmon. Our toddler meal is the best we’ve seen as it was served on a board offering a nice variety of food to keep our little one interested. Our waitress recommended a great Pinot noir.
Food was excellent per usual. That said, we did feel a little rushed. As soon as we sat we were asked what we wanted and as soon as something was taken from a plate the plate was immediately taken away. Overall, solid experience.
The service level was fantastic and the quality of the food was very good. A bit pricey but we definitely were happy we visited Gemini.
Our night at Gemini Bistro was very nice. The appetizers—burrata with prosciutto and melon and beet salads—were both excellent. And the pork shank and swordfish steak mains were both huge and perfectly cooked. The chocolate dessert was a nice way to end the meal. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the ambience was convivial. The menu is diverse with something for every taste. We definitely will return soon.
The food is very good as is the service and compares better than favorably with virtually any restaurant downtown. But so do the prices. Beware that this is very much a neighborhood family place in addition to being a good place to go with friends so you may be stepping over strollers and energetic children.
Great for Zoo lights! Service was exceptional! Food was delicious, but thought it was expensive. $12 for a kids meal is steep. $12 for a soup, yikes! Least expensive glass of wine $14. Likely not be back due to prices.
Fantastic sea bass paired with a perfect rose, attentive & knowledgeable service, great ambiance! Well done! Highly recommend!
Food and service were good.
Had a group of friends - everyone raved about the food.
Also, very gluten free- friendly with a menu that was simple but had something for everyone.
Food was very good as well as service. Good atmosphere generated by a conservative leaning crowd. If you’re into that.
