Tortoise Supper Club
Definitely a great environment to eat out at service was wonderful had the pleasure of having the 12 oz steak my date had the fillet mignon both were fantastic an the experience is definitely worth it reservations went through excellent an seating was immediate will definitely be back an will definitely recommend the experience to everyone
Loved the live jazz music very cool speak easy place!
I hosted 10 people for a private dinner. It was a fantastic evening for everyone. Everything was done to make this a very special evening. The graciousness of Keane, the owner, was complimented by the knowledge and good suggestions of Bruce, the sommelier, and by the very entertaining and personable Service of Chimmy.
Everyone asked that I thank all of you, including your whole staff, for making this such an incredible evening for us all.
Joe and Rudy Barrett
Wow, and thank you, Joe and Rudy, for choosing the Tortoise Supper Club for your celebration. It was our honor to have you and we are so glad we lived up to your expectations and were able to give you an incredible evening. We so look forward to seeing you again soon! All the best from the Tortoise family.
Excellent! Loved the experience.
The manager gave away our table and made us wait 20 minutes until he could get another one. We had to rush our entire meal in order to make our show. The manager offered nothing to us for this act of unprofessionalism and overall disregard for our experience. The food is great and server was wonderful. 9/10 times this will be a good experience. However the manager or the restaurant maintains a “deal with it” attitude when the restaurant makes a mistake. With proper management this restaurant can be one of the best in Chicago!
This is my second time at the Tortoise Supper Club. Did not disappoint. We met up with friends. Nobody ordered the same thing - and everyone raved about how delicious their meal was. Great atmosphere, service and meal!
Hello, Lynn, and thank you for returning to the Tortoise Supper Club. We're delighted to hear your whole group loved their meals and everyone had a great time. We hope you'll keep coming back to enjoy the service and ambiance of restaurant in the future. All the best from the Tortoise family.
The Tortoise Supper Club is a rare treat. The ambiance is elegant, yet comfortable. All of the food is freshly made and the beverages are hand-crafted. The meat is local, '250," meaning that no meat is purchased beyond 250 miles of the restaurant. Portions are good size; the specialties are excellent. The Friday menu offers beef Wellington. It appears that each dish is thoughtfully developed and paired with sides that compliment the flavors. We absolutely savored every morsel. Karli, our server, was so knowledgeable and engaging without being over bearing. Save room for dessert--decadent. A serving can be shared among four easily. On the weekends live jazz adds to the overall experience. Truly a must-do if you want local faire with midwest flair.

Chicago Neighbored Gem! Outstanding food and service combined with amazing family owned management bring an amazing experience. Thank you
We had reservations for 7PM and were seated immediately. The decor is so rich with deep reds and dark wood, but it is not intimidating in the least. Our server was attentive and and the food was fantastic. Will definitely eat there again when we are in town.
Hello there and thank you for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club. It's so good to know appreciated old old-style atmosphere and had a fantastic meal. Please drop in again anytime you are in Chicago. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Food was good. We were seated towards the bathrooms so there was heavy traffic the entire evening and it kind of felt like we were put in a spot that an extra table would be put on a busy night to fit another table in. Overall the lighting was low, service was good and food was excellent. Overall it was a nice restaurant and thought that the value was good for a nice place to eat in Chicago. I would visit this place again but try to request a table away from the back bathroom area.
Thank you, Brent, for joining us this weekend at the Tortoise Supper Club. We're Sorry your table was not ideal, but thank you for letting us know the service and excellent food won you over. We hope you'll be joining us again soon. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Excellent food (Seabass and Osso Buco were fantastic). As appetizer I recommend the grilled octopus. Service was very friendly and attentive.
Thank you, Peter, for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club over the weekend. Thank you for the nice review of our Veal Osso Buco Special as well as our Chilean Seabass. We'll be sure to save your favorite table for your return visit! All the best from the Tortoise family.
Pre theater dinner, love the ambiance - hubby had salmom and I had chicken - only issue w food was there was only one chicken option and it was smothered in tomato sauce. Food good otherwise, best wedge salad and dessert

Valentine’s Day dinner it was wonderful the Jazz band was nice and they gave out roses the food was amazing
Hello there and thank you joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club for your Valentine's celebration. It's so good to know your dinner was amazing and you took your time to enjoy our live jazz band in the lounge. We hope to have you back again soon. All the best from the Tortoise family.
Great ambiance, delicious dessert - highly recommend the Tortoise Pie!
Thank you, Adrian, for joining us at the Tortoise Supper Club on Valentine's Day. Thank you also for the shout out to our desserts, as we employ our own full time pastry chef to be certain our meals end perfectly. All the best from the Tortoise family.
I planned a dinner date with my girlfriend for Valentine's Day and this place totally nailed the romantic atmosphere. Our server was great and provided some good suggestions and answered our questions. Food arrived fairly quick.
I do think the beef wellington could have been better and after hearing the raving reviews about the cherry pie I was surprised it was served cold. But the experience was exactly what I hoped for overall and my girlfriend loved her Chicken entree. We could still hear ourselves talk in the portion of the room they put us in which was a plus.
We will probably go back especially on a night with live jazz.
Hello and thank you, Denny, for choosing the Tortoise Supper Club for your Valentine's Day date. We're so glad you had a good time and thank you for letting us know we nailed the romance element. We hope you'll be back soon to enjoy our live music in the lounge. All the best from the tortoise family.

Club is good. Service is great! My food (lamb chops were not, I ordered medium and they came out rare. I had to send them back. The sides just didn't seem homemade or high end to fit the price of dinner.
Even the house wine was $$$, $16 a glass for house???
No bread offered, and my wife's appetizer (shrimp scampi dip was served with Ritz crackers...really?
Her meal was good, so it wasn't a total disaster on Valentines . We had homemade ice cream which was absolutely great, however not great portions (two small scoops). Coffee good.
Again, service was excellent!!!

The restaurant was very loud. My spouse and I practically had to shout to each other across the table. Service was attentive. We were not impressed by the food.
It has been a little bit since having our daughter to get somewhere, and this was perfect! Food was great, service was better, I wish I could pinpoint server, it was nice to have that level of service again! It's not everywhere. Well done! I def will be back!

Food is delicious!
Service is fantastic!
Live jazz in the lounge!
What more do you need?
The Chilean Sea Bass was UNBELIEVEABLY Delicious!!!! The Ambience reminded me of the Frank Sinatra era.
We had a fantastic time! Our server was exceptional, offering great recommendations for food and wine. He was also very pleasant and engaging. The music was great - not so loud that you couldn’t hear yourself, but nice to hear in the background. The food was A-MAZING! So many great options to choose from and our selections were mouth-watering! This is generally one of our favorite restaurants, but last night exceeded already high expectations. So love everything about the Tortoise Club!! Thanks for a great experience!

Top notch meal. Multiple delicious entrees and old school cocktails that you won’t find on just any menu in the city. Everything is cooked to perfection. The desserts are to die for and service is excellent as well. Fernando took care of us and didn’t rush any of the courses of the meal. We can’t wait to go back.
