What Insiders Are Saying
GT Fish & Oyster is ideal for those who like all the pleasures of the sea. Mandatory oysters to start.
A great dining experience. The contemporary room reflects the contemporary food coming out of the kitchen. The elegant preparation of buttery Hamache crudo paired with radish had the perfect melt in your mouth and crunch combination. The shared octupus starter also blended flavors and textures enhanced by the subtle harrissa sauce beneath each piece of octopus. Mussels were plump and plentiful in a wondrful tomato/basil sauce accompanied by toasted thick slices of excellent bread.
Service ws attentive without being intrusive.
It's a popular place so expect it to be busy and for service to be on the slower side. We sat at our table for at least 10m before anyone came by. Given the pricepoint one would expect more attentive staff. Regardless, the food quality is exceptional and good ambiance.
This is a place we visit every time we're in Chicago. The server we had (really wish I could remember her name) was one of the best I've ever had - extremely attentive, let us know why there was a delay, and even brought us a complimentary appetizer while we waited. Excellent customer service all around. We'll be back again.
The food is always incredible along with the service.
Great starters: oysters, poke, octopus and hamachi
Main courses were pretty good: fish well-prepared with good sauces
Deserts -- mille feuiles and ice cream -- were both delicious.
Our waitress, Katie I believe, was wonderful. Great service and the food was delicious. She had great recommendations and they were all so yummy!
Very poor front desk/reception staff and seating. Was not made to feel welcome, and when I requested a table not by the bar, my request was ignored. Very snobby. Waiter was excellent and food was good. I would however not recommend.
Really enjoy this place! Service is on point and food is fantastic and fresh
We went to GT Fish & Oyster to celebrate our anniversary, and we couldn't have picked a better place to go for our meal! We had theater tickets so we were limited on time, but the server, Becky, paced our meal perfectly so that we could get out on time but still enjoy a lovely dinner.
We started with a half dozen oysters which were fresh and delicious. We also got the green tea soba noodles and wedge salad w/crab. The soba noodles were interesting, and I am glad I tried them; however, I will probably skip them in future. The wedge salad is a definite a repeat though! The crisp bacon, house-made blue cheese dressing, and crab made this simple salad super memorable.
For our mains, my husband got the fish & chips, and I got the fideo. My husband's fish & chips were absolutely perfect! There wasn't too much batter on the crisp cod, and the dipping sauce was a perfect compliment. Also, the fresh fries were crispy which can sometimes be an issue when having fresh fries. I like them crispy. He said that he thought they were the best fish & chips he has ever had, even better than what we have had in England and Ireland. My fideo didn't disappoint either! Often times in dishes like fideo, restaurants will skimp on the seafood and add more starch to compensate. This was not the case at GT. They were extremely generous with the seafood, and the fideo was absolutely delicious! They ended our meal with a complimentary dessert for anniversary. It was a lovely vanilla cream with compressed apples served in an oyster shell - a perfect ending!
The food was wonderful, but the service was even better! Becky did a wonderful job with pacing, and she was friendly and helpful. The bussers never let our water glass go empty and promptly cleared plates. All in all the service and food was on point, and it was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary!
Food was really good, but it took aprox 40min to arrive. Too much time.
The whole trout was seasoned perfectly with medium/sweet hot peppers and endive and sautéed exactly the way Iike it, not too soft. The over all flavor was citrus/szechuan without the heavy oils.
The octopus was nicely sautéed and deliciously tender.
The waiter was very help with the wine selection and offers us taste samples.
Great food. Place is terrffic for dates. Service can be more attentive
Meal was delicious, fresh and well seasoned. Will be back!
Great food and service. Plenty of seafood options. A bit on the loud side for easy conversation.
Scott was awesome!
Needed a nice restaurant, not too expensive, and not too formal, where we could talk. GT fit the bill.

Great seafood place in Chicago, very fresh and high quality seafood. Really nice ambiance and service too!
Loved our sever! Great time.
Great food, great service, great drinks, only bad thing was that we had to wait about 20 minutes past original reservation.
Our three appetizers were so bad (mushy fish, hammered trout, watery wedge salad) that we opted not to order main courses and instead fled to a competent restaurant that served edible food. Don't know what's going on with this place, but dine there at your own peril.
The food and atmosphere was excellent. The octopus appetizer was excellent . Very tasty and fresh seafood!
We loved the very fresh seafood -- and tried all the oyster offerings -- so delicious! The clam chowder and Thai coconut soup were outstanding. We also had the fish and chips. The chips were excellent -- the breading on the fish was a little heavy. We sat at the bar and received excellent service and had a good view of the oyster shucking.
Good and Nice manager 😘
Good dishies, Wine, ambiance...
Nothing wrong with the food.The service is rude and all they want to do is turn tables.It is noisy and the tables are very close to each other. Certainly not for a date night or a conversation.We were in and out in 45 minutes on a Saturday evening.
Jerrod provides excellent service and the food was spectacular! Love GT Fish & Oyster!
Very expensive for small portions and not so great food
Great service and wonderful food. Never disappoints.
Everything about this place is 5 stars!! Best trout, best shrimp bruschetta, best buckwheat pear mouse dessert imaginable. Service, chef, manager all exceptional. Totally memorable experience!
loved the trout! and the best part....a party of 2 fab ladies were seated at a table for 4
The service is outstanding and we love the food.
Got sat next to another couple when there was many other tables open which was kind of awkward. Service was good and food was okay. Reasonably priced.
Had maybe the best trout ever. The service was great. A wonderful evening!
Great happy hour. Very accommodating for gluten free. Oysters amazing.
Wonderful food and attentive staff. Highly recommended
Wonderful restaurant! Great for a group since you can share almost everything!
Such a great place for a brunch. My boyfriend and I went for the first time and the service was awesome! Everything from the time we walked in and were greeted at the door was perfect!
Excellent service with delicious food and a perfect ambiance that is energetic yet you can easily hold a conversation. We will definitely return!
