As we entered the restaurant we were seated at the bar to wait. It was extremely noisy but I wasn't concerned until we were taken to George Trois. The noise followed us into George Trois and we were immediately worried that the extreme noise outside would ruin our very expensive evening!!!! Our hearts sank.
However, as the first hour progressed, the noise outside became less of an issue with the help of piped in music that was right over our table. But.......every time a guest left the room and returned, the noise followed.
We wish that the management would find a way to insulate George Trois from the invasive noise of the other two restaurants.

My husband and I have been here many times. It has become exceptional. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The service is above and beyond perfect. We have been to Alinea where you go hungry because each course is only a bite. Everest is good but Michael has exceeded it. And why drive downtown? We have been to Michelin star restaurants in Amsterdam and Paris. I am name dropping so you know that we know of which we speak

Quite frankly, this was the best tasting menu food wise I've ever had. And in the last year and a half I've experienced 10 Michelin stars plus worth of tasting menus. The food was simply exquisite from darn near start to finish. The stumbles were courses that were just great.

George Trois
Magnifique
Well, let’s get this out of the way - George Trois is an expensive restaurant, however, for that really special occasion, it was well worth it. After my girlfriend’s 66th birthday dinner, she walked away saying that the entire meal was ‘Magnificent”. I had made reservations almost two months in advance. The restaurant did make a phone call and send an e-mail as a reminder, which is always nice when the reservation was that far in advance. When you walk in to the door of the restaurant, you actually have three restaurants. Once we advised the host, we were seated at the bar in Aboyer. We actually observed them preparing our soon to be sipped - mojitos. Shortly after 6 p.m., we were taken in to the dining area (restaurant) that is George Trois. It is stark, white and everything is perfectly presented and placed. We were seated directly in front of the fireplace which was nicely light up. There are only five tables, though the evening that we were there, only four were utilized. There are 12 total courses and the total length of time was about 3 ½ hrs. Oh, and yes, there are no menus. We were seated by Alfredo, who was very personable, attentive & efficient during the entire meal. The cuisiniere, Chef Michael Lachowicz, serves each of the five tables individually and some of the courses, are actually prepared and describe while he is at the table. The sommelier assisted us in a wine selection and a riesling was chosen. We are not huge wine drinkers, so we decided not to go with any type of individual wine pairing for each of the courses. Chef Michael came to the table and introduced himself and started our dining experience with a huckleberry-jito, That was delicious and was the perfect start of the evening. I almost felt guilty having the Diet Coke from the bar still sitting on the table! The second course presented was white asparagus beignet with a spring pea soup. Each of the courses was perfectly timed and paced. The

If Michelin stars were awarded on the north shore, Georg Trois would be in consideration for two. This was a truly exceptional dining experience. As it should be, the food was the star of the show - inventive, flavorful, interesting, beautiful. Chef Michael's personal presentation each course added so much to the enjoyment. And the dining room as as lovely and as intimate as any I have had the pleasure of enjoying. This is a restaurant too good to be reserved for special occasions.

Probably the most outstanding meal we’ve enjoyed in the Chicago area. The creative dishes, perfectly prepared and presentations with dinnerware and timing make George Trois a premier addition to our Chicago restaurant scene. Chef Michael not only prepares the dishes, he comes over to each table for each course to explain both the inspiration and the preparation... I suggest making reservations and consider their wine pairings-

We dined at the new George Trois to celebrate a milestone birthday for my husband. It was a lovely evening the food was very good and the service was impeccable and good-natured. The chef served each course. We tried the Platinum wine pairings, and we were not disappointed. We will definitely return for another special occasion dinner.

Room was cozy yet elegant and intimate. We will be back as soon as they reopen. I expect a second Michelin Star is not far behind.

We were so impressed on our first visit to George Trois last Friday evening! Chef Michael has elevated his amazing cuisine to its ultimate level of taste, presentation, and elegance. The inspiration for each dish was mesmerizing and memorable, and Chef Michael's personal attention in presenting each course provided a most captivating dining experience. The service was elegant and perfectly timed, and we highly recommend the premium wine flight which was the perfect complement to the various courses of the menu. The ambiance was intimate, elegant, and tasteful. Congratulations to Chef Michael and his gracious team for creating and executing one of the most memorable evenings in the Chicago restaurant scene.

An outstanding 12-course meal, with each course presented by the chef, who is friendly and accessible. A small, white room (5 tables) inside Restaurant Michael makes for quiet focus on conversation and the food. The courses were all delicious, though for us the weakest was dessert ... hated to end on a soft note! Everything else was excellent though. Staff is efficient and friendly, and not pretentious. However, this is one pricey meal (which doesn't include tip).

We greatly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at George Trois. Our expectations were high, and those expectations were exceeded. The ambiance, knowledgeable service, quality and creativity of the food, and personal attention made the evening special. After being seated in a private room separate from the main dining area at Restaurant Michael (which is co-located with George Trois), you are welcomed by Alfredo and Chef Michael and given an introduction to what the evening will include. Twelve courses unique to George Trois are prepared and presented at a comfortable pace, served with excellent wine pairings (three levels available) if you choose. Courses vary with season and the chef's inspirations. Everything we had was elegantly presented and tasted wonderful. Flavors were well balanced. This is truly a extraordinary dining experience suited to special occasions, special friends, and those who enjoy first-class French food and world-class service.

To celebrate My husband’s birthday, I took him to a four-hour, 12-course prix fixe dinner at George Trois in Winnetka. It is in a separate room in the same building as Michael’s. There are only six tables in this private room, and Chef Michael Lachowicz personally served every course (with an appropriate and interesting explanation) at each of the six tables. It is classic French dining.

What a beautiful evening we had. Our second visit and we plan for a third. Chef Michael's experience, passion and culinary creativity and playfulness are poured and placed in front of you as he delivers and describes each dish nearly poetically. The intimate room of six tables allows for quiet conversation and intimacy, yet accomodates laughter and comraderie. Don't want to ruin the surprise of what the menu entails, so here's a few spoilers. A hot buttered rum cider arrives after you are seated. On a cold November night, it instantly warms and welcomes you. From there, chestnut soup (with a foie gras cracker that we shall not forget), caviar with another notable cracker, duck (and it's the only duck I'd ever request again), chicken, halibut, delightful palate cleanser, lamb that must be worshiped. There is a huckleberry/lamb side dish that I've requested as a component of my last meal, an unusual cheese course that I'd love to replicate, and then dessert, dessert and more dessert. We opted for the wine pairings which Sergio, GM/sommelier, pours with a good nature, a story if you like, and a beaming smile. There are several choices for the pairings for all budgets and livers. This was a flawless night. Have not ceased thinking about how well we were taken care of from arrival to hugs good by, to the gasps when each item was placed in front of us, to the sighs as we began to taste. This is a very special and not to be missed gem. Our Christmas wish is to have the good fortune to sit in Chef Michael's kitchen to watch and learn how to compose any of these masterful, delicious and stunning courses. But we'll settle for a return visit, knowing the next time will (hard to imagine) be even better and leave us wanting to return yet again. It's rare to see a Chef's heart and soul present itself as you do here as you have the good fortune to interact with him throughout the evening and it makes the experience that much deeper and eye opening.

It's been two weeks since we had this meal and I think enough time has passed for me to validate my opinion of our experience. Since I've given myself enough space to reflect, here is the single word I can use to describe our experience:

Pedestrian

Service: Pedestrian - We've had better service at virtually every mid-price restaurant in Chicagoland we've ever visited.

Food: Pedestrian - We've had a lot of fine dining meals over the years throughout Chicago and elsewhere in the world. As far as I am concerned, every single dish here could have been prepared by a non-professional home cook at least as well and, for one course, it actually entered my mind that I was in an episode of Children's Chopped that had gone seriously awry.

Wine: Pedestrian - The flights menu had no details, just prices. We avoid flights anymore because they are usually comprised of uninspired wines with maybe one that is a wonderful surprise. I asked for some guidance on a Burgundy in the $250 range and after a chat with the server I accepted his recommendation and as he was walking away he told me that the wine I selected was one that was drinking very well on their wine flights. Ugh! I was right. The wine was...you guessed it, pedestrian.

Price: Offensive - For the food and experience we had, $190 per person was appalling. Our total bill for this meal was not exceptionally high relative to what we typically pay for fine dining but the value was simply terrible. It was so bad that once we reached the sidewalk after the meal we both laughed and said "So. Oriole next week for a meal where the food is actually good?"

Special occasion and appreciated the time, attention and explanation of each course by Chef Michael! 9-courses exceeded expectations with caviar, foie gras, Dover sole and lamb as stand-outs with truffles incorporated into many dishes thoughtfully presented in a "matching" serving vessel. Beautiful all-white room with limited 5 tables and extremely attentive service. Did not feel the wine pairings - 4 for $116 - met expectations, so would forego next time. Thanks for the lovely evening!
