This place is for special occasion. Food and service is very good. Appetizer portions are very small, I would skip them and go to the main course which are decently portioned and very tasty. Expensive but great value if combined with Wednesday/Saturday night fireworks.

We had some much fun i love this place , the view is just beautiful !!!!! We spent $170 for a dinner for 2 plus bottle of vine , but the groupon deal said that will give us 50 % cash back but we got only 20 $ back that was a little confused 🤔

Memorizing the order was difficult but they made up for it in service.

What You'll Get

Some restaurants go to great lengths for a scenic view, such as the coffee shop onboard the International Space Station and the diner balancing atop the Washington Monument. Dine with a splendid view and no threat of tipping with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of steaks, scallops, salads, and more at Cité, located downtown on the 70th floor of Lake Point Tower. This Groupon is valid toward the chef's tasting menu but not toward Sunday brunch.

Cité offers an unbeatable one-two punch: a panoramic 360-degree view of the Chicago skyline and lakefront and finely crafted steak and seafood dishes. Chef Oscar Ornelas has worked with some of the world's most renowned chefs, including France's Claude Bernard. Start with a delectable appetizer, such as crab-stuffed gnocchi ($14) or escargot François ($13). Entrees include filet mignon ($40), prime New York strip au poivre ($45), and butter-poached Maine lobster (market price), which is served with whipped Yukon Gold potatoes mined during the 1850 potato rush. Herbivores can have the tasting of vegetables, a medley of Israeli couscous, goat-cheese-stuffed portabella, grape tomatoes, and seasonal selections ($26). Finish with a conspicuously captivating dessert, such as bananas foster served as a flaming tableside treat for two ($12 per person).

Several signature cocktails ($12–$16), such as the hybrid sangria margarita and the ginger-infused cosmopolitan, can enhance Cité's breathtaking views of Navy Pier, Lake Shore Drive, and Michigan's 875-foot-tall statue of Bruce Lee. With its stunning views, crisp white tablecloths, and plushy seating, Cité is a superb spot for a romantic or gigantic dinner. Reservations are required.


OpenTable reviewers named Cité a Diners’ Choice Winner for Scenic View and Romantic. USA Today named it one of the best restaurants in Chicago with a good view. Reviews are varied on service and food, but reviewers love the spectacular lakefront views. Zagat rated the food “very good to excellent” and the décor “extraordinary to perfection.” Centerstage Chicago reviewed the restaurant. Yelpers and Citysearchers give it an average of 3.5 stars.

  • City-dwellers and “tourists” alike seek out this “quiet”, “elegant” (jackets suggested) New American – towering 70 stories above Streeterville since 1969 – “for a romantic dinner or special occasion” complete with a “phenomenal” 360-degree panorama – Zagat
  • …even the most seasoned Chicago veterans will get cramps craning their necks for a glimpse of the city through the floor-to-ceiling windows. – Centerstage Chicago

About Cité

Guests at Cité bask in a 360-degree view of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, and Chicago—along with an eye-level view of summer fireworks—from the 70th floor of Lake Point Tower.

The menu includes the Cured Alaskan Wild King Salmon, Berkshire Pork Chop, Tomahawk 32 oz. Steak, Award wining Lobster Mac n' Cheese and for dessert, the Flaming Banana Foster made table-side. The wine menu ,which spans the New and Old World, and the customized cocktails provides another reason for guests to linger in the eatery's bar area, aptly named the Sky Lounge.

Cité also often hosts special events, like Valentine's Day and Chicago Restaurant Week Prex-Fixe Menu, enabling diners to celebrate and mingle with their loved ones and fellow foodies in high style. The eatery is also open for corporate and family events with a private space. Click here for more details.
