Still a Class Act Restaurant! Really enjoyed

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. But that shouldn't distract from what's on the tables there. Chef Oscar Ornelas creates dishes worthy of the adventurous space. Cured salmon pulls in an unexpected splash of yuzu vinaigrette, and tempura-battered apples and dried cherries add some hint of the forest to Berkshire pork. And the wine menu, which spans the New and Old World, provides another reason to linger over the skyline vista.
