Fun spot to go with friends for some good music. Our meal was delicious and the servers were very friendly. I will go back, maybe on a weekday when it's not so crowded.

Pros: Locale

Cons: Everything

Hot and cold. There are too many TVs and it was kind of crazy. This place have definitely gone down hill. the staff is the only saving grace - they were nice. But the owners were a bit sketchy. you get the feeling that they were hiding out back counting money. I hear that they are slum lords. I wanted to speak with them about my experience in their establishment and they would not come out to talk.

I will never go here again..

Pros: snobby

Cons: vermin

FINALLY! the place is closed (no surprise) The idea and concept is GREAT! but the the same owners, management that never cared much for their employees, much less for their customers.

Sam Minnetti, and the Family Albanian PRICKS!!!! nothing but THUG!! when it comes to taking peoples money. The General Manager is no different. They all bunch of CROOKS.

The Community and neighbors cannot stand the arrogance and lack of professionalism of Sam Minnetti. I would never drop a penny in that place ever again. I will spit in your face if i see in the street!! i hope you burn in HELL!

This might be a good place to go hang out and have some drinks and enjoy music, but don't dress up or you may become a target. They overserved my partner alcohol to the point where his evening was blacked out, 2 iPhones went missing (one went missing from a jacket when the staff were ushuring us out around last call and barely let someone go back for the jacket), and one pair of expensive frames went missing. Ecstacy and Cocaine seemed to be readily available at the establishment. Additionally the manager lied to me over the phone about the whereabouts of a missing person. So if you're going to go here know that its overpriced, and to dress and act like you're poor or else you will be.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Nice outdoor eating area overlooking river.
Very Happy to find this gem of a restaurant in my new neighborhood. After living downtown and growing used to a certain level of quality and service

Okay so I went to Green Dolphin last Saturday (club).... First of all they charge $20.00 to get in which it is not worth at all. 1) Trashy!!!!!!! 2) Trashy 3)Trashy!!!!!!!!!
People dress so scrubby, I seen some people with gym shoes. Yuck! People are rude and guys are perves and they have a tendency to grab what they are not supposed to!
I don't understand how can you charge $20 for admission, this club should just be called "The Trashy clowns" and it should just let the homeless in might as well because they sure will blend in with the people anyway!

I will never ever go there again!

I have been to the Green Dolphine quite a few times. My reason for my return is the diversity in people and the entertainment. I usually go on club nights; the music is good and the crowd is decent. Nice place to hang out and meet new people.

Hello everyone, this is my first time writing a review but anyway my 1st time every going to green dolphin street was this past Friday and I had so so so much fun! I could say this was my 1st time every enjoying myself to the fullest going to a club. I didn't know it was actually a restaurant until reading the other reviews but I went after the restaurant hrs were over but the atmosphere was excellent, it was spacious through out the club and there were about 5 bars and 3 different areas of the club played different music so the atmosphere was never boring. The main dance floor did get kind of extra crowded but it was still fun and they even opened up the VIP area for everyone. And people don't take forever to show up, there was a line out the door @ 11:30 when I arrived and it stays open til 4 AM. I would recommend anyone to go to this club on a FRIDAY night if you want to have a good time, young or middle-aged, and don't have to worry about it being super crowded, rude people or annoying men or women. BUT be prepared to spend money on drinks, they all average about $10 a piece and that's just for reg. drinks ex: long island ice tea or remy and coke.

Pros: The atmosphere and the ample amount of bars

Cons: Having one of the coat checks in the ladies bathroom

Steak was raw and came back hard as a hockey puck after being sent back. Despite telling waiter we were in a hurry and wanted to see the show, food took forever and they did everything they could to sell us more despite knowing we were in a hurry, including after i gave mycredit card to close out the tab. convinced by hostess to have dinner in the dining room so we could get in to see the show and then told it was too crowded and we had to sit in adjacent room and see the show from a distance. $1,000 for a SH#$ty MEAL and bad view of the show. hated it. never go back and tell everyone to stay away.

I had made reservations there for Valentines Day. This was one of the most outstanding meals I have ever eaten in my life! The service was equally outstanding; and let's not forget the convenience of walking into the next room after dinner and listening to some great Jazz.

Pros: Great Food, Better Music

Cons: can be expensive (along with any other good restaurant in this city)

Last week I ate at this restaurant and found it to be only of average quality for the price. First, service was friendly, but very slow. My friend found a hair in her Coke. My New York stip streak was tasty, but tough and very grissely. The steamed asparagus was tough and appaeared to be canned, not fresh. My sister ordered a cheese and fruit plate, which was missing the fontina cheese that the menu said it had and the cheddar was dried out. I ordered the white cake with blackberries, mascarpone and lemon ice cream. The cake was so dry that I thought it was several days old. It was actually stale and there was no mascarpone accompanying it. I ended up leaving it on the plate. Although some things were good, the overall experience was mediocre at best. I won't be eating here again and I doubt I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Nice outdoor eating area overlooking river.
I had a great time last week when I was there. Abundant parking, friendly staff.
I will definitely go here again.

I have only been to green dolphin street once, but it was such a fun experience. we went to the green dolphin street on a Sunday night and it happened to be free! we thought that this was wonderful. the entertainment was so great and enjoyable, the atmosphere was laid-back, but also chic, and the drinks were tasty!

We threw a bachelor party for a friend of ours at this place. We had confirmation but when we arrived the bouncers didn't have a clue. We told them to get the list, didn't know who had it, we told them to get the manager, they wouldn't. Well suffice to say this ruined my friends bachelor party, we had to wait in line, pay full price and when we got in we talked to the manager and we were on the list. No champaing, no private booth, we got in later than we expected. NEVER, EVER AGAIN

The Green Dolphin offers a full night's entertainment--dinner in their restaurant, drinks and dancing and live performances after. The crowd is attractive because people in their 20s as well as people in their 60s+ go there. When the weather is nice, they open it up so you can sit outside and listen to the jazz and talk . . .. Everyone I have taken there has been favorably impressed. A nice date place.

Although this is a restuarant, I have only been in the bar area for jazz performances. It's a fun atmosphere and the performances have always been excellent. Since it is in the bar area, there is a good chance it will get smokey. A slightly older crowd.

PROS: A fun time for a group
CONS: Seats are often reserved

Looking for a place to dine with a Jazz Club atmosphere, we decided to check out the Green Dolphin. Take note: the Jazz band plays in the Bar area and dinner is served in the Dinning room. We were treated to prerecorded, piped in Jazz via speakers in the dinning room, which competed with the ensemble playing in the bar. Unless you want to dine in the bar, the Jazz sound while dining is conflicting & confusing. Although both our meals were very good, the portions are SMALL, and the server got our orders wrong to boot. Will we be back? I dont think so

I went to Green Dolphin Street last Thursday evening and had a fantastic time. I will not forget my meal! We started our meal with an amuse send out by the chef. Then we moved on to an intense foie gras served with grilled pineapple and a crab salad that was fresh and full of flavor. I chose the venison for my entree when my server assured me it would be flavorful and tender. She was right! Also, the wine list was so comprehensive, I could have spent all night reading it.
After dinner, we had our dessert and after dinner drinks in the bar area, where the most incredible trio was playing. I didn't get their names, but I look forward to seeing them again (hopefully at Green Dolphin Street!)

Green Dolphin boasts an elegant decor and atmosphere. While Tues evenings unfold, the crowd evolves from older refined Jazz afficianados to flashy and hot-footed salseros. The salsa music spun by a DJ energizes everyone who stick around until the late hour and enjoy the large dancefloor - Usually even those who arrive early on to catch the free one salsa hour lesson.

A bunch of friends and I went to green dolphin to listen to a band (don't know who). It was so much fun. Everyone was up and dancing and not obnoxioulsy like at the clubs with a bunch of 18-21 year olds. It was so much fun. We had a table and a great waitress and were free to just enjoy the evening with friends and dancing. I want to be able to come back here for dinner sometime too, really looking foward to it.

I started going to GDS about 5+ years ago. The restaurant is fabulous, the wine list wonderful, the staff very helpful and attentive. The best place for a dinner with that special person and/or group of friends.

The music is the best and a wonderful way to end a perfect evening!

The owners only want your evening to be perfect and make sure you are 100% satisfied!!!

I lived in Chicago for about a year, but everytime I visit I HAVE to go to The Green Dolphin. It is absolutely the best. Can't go wrong with the great food, great drinks and great music. A must for tourists and Chicagoans.

In Short
The spruced-up dining room seems worlds away from the frenetic club. A coat of chartreuse softens the exposed brick walls. Dark, cushy banquettes and white-clothed tables encircle the square room. With its raised stage,…
