    Oysters are fresh, po boy sliders with fried oysters and Kimchi was amazing. Everything monkey bread was okay. There is a generous amount of meat in the lobster roll and the clam chowder was delish!

    Nothing shy of fabulous! Amazing service, atmosphere, perfect hand crafted cocktails, excellent food! A must for the first course are the Po' Boy sliders and seafood platter for the table.

    If the Oyster Po' Boy Sliders came in a crave case, we'd buy it. There's no question as to why fried oysters with kimchi and peanuts are simply the best. Two words: flavor explosion. Read more

    On the raw side, you can order an iced tray of East and West Coast oysters or the decadent caviar service. GT focuses as much attention on its sweets as it does its seafood. Read more

    Try the squid-ink gnocchi in carrot broth from our 100 Best list: Chef Giuseppe Tentori is first and foremost an Italian & where he really shines is with pastas such as this rich yet delicate gnocchi.

    The oysters are fabulous. Great selection of fresh shucked oysters. The mussels in tomato basil are delicious as well. They are expensive but it's worth it.

    Everything was delicious - and by everything I mean we tried 90% of the menu. Must tries: oysters, fish tacos, ravioli, shrimp bruschetta, white chocolate cheesecake. The service was outstanding too.

    Amazing and inexpensive - loved the sunfish ceviche, tuna poke, shooters, eggplant and insanely delicious oyster po' boy. Also the cocktails with raspberry vinegar were nice without being too sweet.

    Hip and happening place. Nice table spacing and great looking bar area. Eclectic crowd so appeal is broad. Style is small plates to share. Menu on the small side but choices interesting and tasty.

    Many people think Midwestern cuisine is all about meat and potatoes, but GT Fish & Oyster proves them wrong. The seafood dishes are excellent (don’t miss the bacon clam chowder).

    Cold bites such as Baja shrimp bruschetta & sunfish ceviche are served alongside a variety of oysters & hot items such as Tasmanian ocean trout & lobster pot pie. Non-fish items also available. Read more

    This hot new fish bar from chef Giuseppe Tentori and Boka Group is an easy contender for one of the best openings of the year. Don't miss the lobster roll or cheap late-night oysters on Weds.

    I absolutely am obsessed with the fried oyster po'boy sliders here! The lobster roll connecticut style (with butter, no mayo) is downright sinful! After 9 pm there's half-priced oysters.

    Beautiful open space. Tried the fish and chips, lobster roll, lobster mac 'n cheese, and broccoli salad. Didn't love the food but the lobster roll and broccoli salad stood out.

    Sunfish ceviche sparkles with acidity but never drowned by it, barbecue eel is geniusly paired with a potato-and-octopus salad, and pastas (squid-ink gnocchi; crawfish tortellini) are masterful. Read more

    You really can't go wrong here! Don't overlook their clam chowder though, it may seem a little too simple for a place like this, but it will redefine how you look at chowder!

    Delicious lobster rolls. Don't skip them when you visit, even though the rest of the menu looks awesome. At least order one for the table and sit with your friends

    Really well decorated place. Love the mussels in rustic tomato broth and the bread that comes along with the dish. Also try the eggplant! Pork belly was notable as well.

    You can't go wrong here. Oyster shooters are a must as are the halibut, grilled Caesar salad, fish tacos and lobster mac. Sparkling Rose is a wonderful accompaniment.

    Must try the tuna poke with mango, barbecue eel with wasabi, sunfish seviche with chimichurri, lobster roll with fried onions, and carrot cake with cream cheese gelato. Skip on the crab cakes. Read more
  • Marines M.
    Lobster roll is highly recommended! Large chunks of lobster with a very slight amount of dressing ... just enough to give a great taste. Crab cake also recommended

    Highly recommend if you love innovative, fresh seafood. Crab cake, scallops, lobster roll, and tuna are all outstanding. Don't even think about skipping dessert either.

    Small plates meant for sharing. Best to order bottles of wine and work your way down the menu. It's ALL delicious. Save room for dessert. The Cheesecake Panna Cotta is amazing.

    Great place to go for shared plate seafood, loved the food and lively ambiance. Had many great dishes but my fav was definitely the scallops, best I've ever had.

    The lobster breakfast burrito, chilaquiles & churro were all delicious and the peach belini was light, fresh and refreshing.

    GT Fish and Oyster because it is a great seafood option in a city filled with great meat restaurants.The dishes are smaller in size so it's good for sharing.

    The restaurant’s communal tables are heaped with golden brandade croquettes crowning a fennel–orange salad, lobster rolls paired with fried onions, a changing selection of raw oysters & barbecued eel

    With every order of oysters—cool and plump and ocean-kissed—comes two bottles of GT-branded hot sauce, in packaging that leads me to believe we’ll soon see the stuff at Jewel. Read more

    The lineup at this Mother's Day prix fixe (biscuits with shrimp, mini lobster rolls) sounds better than fine, but if you really love your mom, you'll tack on the optional caviar service.

    Delish appetizers-- shrimp bruschetta, crab cakes, oysters, ceviche. Pork belly a bit on the sweet side. The whale room downstairs good for private parties.

    One of the best seafood spots in Chicago. Go here if you want high quality, fresh seafood. Scallops are amazing and great wine selections.

    Try the crab cake - Has a spicy kick, and it is loaded with fresh crab & light in filler. Might the best I've had.

    All the entrees were tasty, but the standouts were (unsurprisingly) the oysters but also the key lime pie. Great cocktails too.
