My friend and I decided to try out a fairly new restaurant located right off one of the main highways in our area – I-88.  Located in a fairly new office complex, City Gate Grille was a very nice surprise.  While our area has tons of restaurants from your major franchise chains to small family places they are normally located in strip malls or in or near the downtown areas, such as Naperville, Aurora, Oswego, etc.

City Gate Grill is located in the Calamos Investment office building.  Modern and imposing on the corner of RT. 59 and Warrenville Road down from the Nicor Gas and the new Hotel Arista this complex has a variety of businesses.

Modern with silver and dark wood, bench seating as well as regular tables the service is good, quick and understated.  A perfect place for a celebratory dinner or just a night out with friends you can’t go wrong.  We were lucky and had live music from a duet singing old standards as well as some of the latest songs.  People were dancing and enjoying themselves as we sat with views of the I-88 traffic on a Friday night.

From the appetizers to dessert it was hard to find fault with the food. A nice wine list and specialty martini’s plus all the regular bar drinks your liquid libations were well covered.  Great ambiance, great music , great food and great service…a fun night was had by all.

American Mediterranean for those who enjoy an eclectic dining experience is what they advertise so for those special and not so special evenings out with friends, take a short trip past the Westfield Shopping Center down Rt. 59  and stop and visit…my friend recommends the Mango Martini!

It’s rare to find a professional like her – reliable, trustworthy and honest. She went to bat for me on the sale of my house, and didn’t stop until every last paper was signed. Her persistence and willingness to get the job done for her clients is a welcome delight. Jean R. -"
