I was going to recommend the two places listed above.
I used to like Berghoff but I haven't been there since his kids took it over - shut it down - fired everyone - then reopened and made everyone reapply.. might not be the same.

No it's not.
Don't believe them.
Average at best.. Unless you're taking into account drinking.. in which case 3.5 stars.. maybe 4 depending on the server.

I never understood the big deal with that place.

Go to Millers.. It's old school mafia style.. and it appears you know something about the city.. Rather than the pseudo british chain place..

Or Russian Tea Room.. but it's a bit pricey and a bit of a more specific taste (liver pate might not be everyones cup of tea.. but those who like it tend to love it)

I like The Gage -- used to go there a lot after horrid corporate tax exams in college. relaxed atmosphere. yummy food -- the fondue and the scallops were both good. a tad on the expensive side though. gets busy during lunch -- so go early or opt for a late lunch if you can. idk if you'll be drinking, but the Amalfi Dream was my fave.
