CityGate Grille Ratings and Reviews
Executive Assistants Day
I have booked many business luncheons here. It was very nice to actually have an opportunity to dine there myself. Beautiful dining room with great food. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon lunch!
Great Food and Service. Just a Bit Loud
My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The recommended food was outstanding. We both loved our steaks and the sides that we ordered. Service was A+. Waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. The only nit was that the jazz band in the bar made conversation a little difficult. Loved the music - but at times it was very hard to hear. Probably would have been fine if our table was a little farther away. Overall a very nice place to spend an evening.

One of our favorite places for a nice dinner out in the Naperville area. It's nice, modern and has a city vibe.

Great food! I appreciated that the portions weren't out of control. It allowed room for appetizers, dinner, AND dessert :)
Our dinner at City Gate was probably the best dinner we had for the price level. From the appetizer to the entrée, the sides, and desert, each dish was perfectly prepared, presented, and served at the perfect temperature to eat. I was a little surprised to see a revised wine list and my favorite wasn't listed. But, the wine I chose to replace my favorite was even better. Our server was attentive, prompt, friendly and well versed in the menu. Along with his sense to let us relax and enjoy our meal, it added to the overall experience.

Good food/ nice atmosphere/ poor service
Food was very good but server was not. We waited for a long time before he ever came to our table. He apologized and said he didn't realize he was assigned our table. We said no worries. Unfortunately service went down hill from there. He tried to bring us steak knives half way through the meal - it was too late, we had gotten them already. Then we didn't see him again. When we were finally able to hunt down the server to request our check, he brought us the wrong one.
First time visit
We went on 3/4/16 which was a Friday night. 8:00 reservations. Restaurant was barely filled which was a little surprising for a Friday night. Ambiance is great. Our server didn't get to us for about 7 mins after we were sat down, was a little overly chatty but very friendly. Food was delicious and about what I would expect to pay. I would come back.
Beautiful and unique! Everyone was extremely friendly and made me feel welcome. I was even "escorted" to where the washroom was. Wonderful live music and an overall relaxing vibe. My only negative would be I felt there was a lot of salt in my dish. However I still ate everything because it was good!! My steak was cooked perfectly and my husband enjoyed his chicken as well!

Our server Chris was wonderful! This restaurant was gorgeous. My daughter had some dietary restrictions and they were most accommodating. The steaks were fabulous! On a par with Ruth's Chris!
Wonderful birthday celebration!
We have been to City Gate several times and always have a great time. This time was no different. There were 6 in our party, we were celebrating my birthday and the staff made sure we had a great time. The service was wonderful.
Very good food and service!
My girfriend and I went there for a night out to catch up.It was the perfect place,we can actualy hear each other,the view from the our table was beautifful.The food was great and the service too.We will definately go there again.
Great last minute find.
I waiting too late to make reservations for Valentines Day, so finding a time still available at City Gate Grille was perfect. The atmosphere, food, bartenders, and servers were all great. Live music added just the right amount as well. Will go back for sure.
Great Date Night
The entire experience was amazing! From the valet to the coat check to the knowledgeable wait staff on the different drinks and food choices that they had. I would highly recommend to try. There was great music and friendly staff just made the entire dinner wonderful!
Great, but squished!
Very nice, however seating was less than desirable. Just us two for dinner, but was 12 inches shoulder to shoulder to next table on both sides. Food was excellent, live entertainment, guitar, was very nice. Enjoyed music with after dinner cordial at the bar.
Not sure anymore....
I've been coming here for many, many years. The view and ambiance is fantastic. Unfortunately, I feel the menu is extremely limited and rather on the pricey side. It Valentines Day, it wasn't that busy at 6:30pm. Our waiter never did bring us the additional bread and garlic we asked for (realized this at home). When we were finished eating, our dishes sat there, for like 15 minutes, before someone finally came and picked them up. It's a beautiful place but every time I go there, I have the same complaint - it's understaffed and menu is very limiting.
City gate grill
We have been here for 4 of last 5 Valentine's Day dinners. Have always been able to get a table.. i word hasn't got out. Food has always been excellent. Highly recommend.
classy place but food not great at all
I took by boyfriend out for dinner at City Gate Grille hoping for a great steak for him. Mi d you we had a 9:30 reservation so when we got our well done steak it was charred and definitely tasted like the whole nights steak particles were stuck to my steak. My boyfriends steak was the same. We asked for well done and like I said it was charred on the outside and still pink in the middle. I also asked for a glass of Pinot Grigio and when I got my drink I could have sworn they pick a shot of Tequila mixed into it. They place is pretty nice to look at but definitely not going back.

I thought it was a little loud but it was Valentine's Day and was very busy. The food was excellent. Wait staff was wonderful! Wine was great! Had a reservation and was seated immediately.
Great service and food, sometimes loud atmosphere
I went to this restaurant on February 13th. The food my date and I got was excellent and our waiter was splendid. The restaurant was a bit noisy likely because it was very crowded being Valentine's Day weekend, but the experience was great! Would definitely go again!

The service was great. Our waitress had a good attitude and was very attentive. The food was fantastic. Everything we ate was good quality and cooked perfectly. I would definitely return for another meal.
Great DATE night!
Love that we were able to bring our own wine and pay a small corkage fee. Although, the wine list is extensive and I had the BEST French Martini at the bar while waiting for our table. Our food was AMAZING and service was impeccable. We will definitely be back and often!

Always good food at this restaurant. Miguel and the rest of the staff gave us great service.
It would be helpful if the bartender could make a champagne cocktail for the future.
Food was OK the place was very nice had a great view friendly staff and overall just a good dinner for two couples or the group. When I say the food was OK it's just a little more fancier than your typical food that you would order in the portions are very large so that's good . I apologize for this review but doing it through my phone makes it harder to type for sentence.
Dinner, Music and Dancing
Great food and service. Live music was playing in the bar that provided a wonderful atmosphere for the entire dinning area. The food was tastefully prepared and portion size was more than ample. After dinner the dance floor was rocking with wonderful music to dance to. My compliments to the owners for have a great venue.

The soup and salad are a good option for lunch. The fresh bread is very good.
One of my favorites!
The food, service and ambiance is top notch! Although pricey we are never disappointed when we eat there. The staff is always very attentive and really understand the menu. Going there is always a special night out.
