While the food was really good as usual, we felt rushed when the entre arrived before we were finished with our appetizer. the server offered to return it to the kitchen to keep warm but that is not ideal. The rest of the service was good.

My husband and I were at Cite for a special anniversary celebration. It was very good. For me the ambience was very important and in that regard, it did not disappoint. The food was good, although I felt they were skimpy on the veggies. I think I had a half carrot cut up.... not sure why! The service was good, although the waiter got lost at the end, and we waited a while for dessert. Overall... very good, and yes I would recommend!

A friend was visiting and she has no hi-rise dining where she lives. So I surprised her with dinner & a view. We loved everything! Atmosphere, cuisine, wine and service were all incredible. I highly recommend a visit to this oasis in the sky!

The staff and waiters on duty came off a little judgmental about our race/ skin color and was not professional. There was a waiter who reached over me instead of reaching around and spilled a dirty fork on to my white brand new shirt.

You’re definitely paying for the view. Food was poor. Lobster bisque was really salty and thin. Sides for filet were undercooked baby carrots and overcooked baby potatoes, both without any seasoning. Bread was stale. Shrimp cocktail and risotto was ok. Desert pana cotta was really sweet, and there was a hair on it.

Brutal. That’s about the only way to put it. Should have known it would be considering when you enter the building there is a huge sign that says the restaurant is for sale. The views are nice however every outside window is completely covered with spider webs and large spiders so good luck with that. Service was very slow. Asked for a steak medium well butterfly....gave up after two failed attempts since they couldn’t get it right at all.

Booked the location because of the view. So i wrote “window view” on my reservation. Upon arrival the elevator was out and i had to walk up the stairs and to the back door.
They did not have any window seatings. Eventually, the handled it.
Filet Mignon salmon and asparagus were not good. The lobster Mac was amazing. They had no red wine that was sweet. I doubt I’ll go back again.

The Ambiance and Staff made the food that much More enjoyable. The staff was attentive , friendly, and accommodating. Not to mention the chef sent over a complimentary soup that was soooo delicious. I will recommend cite to anyone for fine dining. I, couldn’t wait to return to Advocate Christ Hospital to rave about Cite’s to my fellow nurses. Our Anniversary Dinner was definitely a successful one.

The views are fantastic and some of the best you can get in the city. The price to food ratio is good as you receive enough to be full for what you paid.

Called ahead to ask for dessert to be brought immediately after, hostess failed to relay the message to the server even after being reminded once we arrived. They weren’t busy, honestly no excuse for them forgetting. Once they were reminded 20 mins later still nothing so we paid the bill and left. They truly dropped the ball.
