    The Gage has been a Michigan Avenue mainstay for nearly ten years. And no wonder: We could come back every day for the grilled hanger steak with a fried farm egg. Read more

    Food was very good and they have some fantastic 2007 vintage wines on their list right now for their 10th anniversary. What really made the meal enjoyable was the exceptional service.

    Everything is so delicious! If I have to pick two - the venison burger and smoked mushroom soup of the day.

    And the fish and chips are really crispy and stay crispy even with a lot of malt vinegar.

    V. disappointing venison burger. Ate 1/4 before not being able to continue. Over cooked (Not medium-rare) and simply poor quality meat. Taste like Walmart value mince. a lovely atmosphere and bar!

    Skip the beef tartare. They ruin it by putting some strange aioli. Leave a good thing to stand for itself!
