We ate the Cite on the 28th for our 45th anniversary. Although we have been in Chicago many many times, we wanted a different eatery that was not a steak house, yet served decent food. I would say this restaurant definitely out did itself. On the 70th floor just off Navy Pier, it is very small with only 2 rows so every table has a great view of either the city, Lake Michigan or a combo of those in the circular setting. A few tables have you sitting directly above the lower building roof, but you can "look out" for a great view. Personally I liked the city view. Every Sat there are fireworks over Navy Pier and if you don't have that view, you simply get up to walk over to view them. Food: Started with a Seafood sampler ($20 shared) and when my husband saw the tiniest oysters ever he was so disappointed - until he tasted them. Thought they were the best he has ever had. The ceviche was fantastic - so tender and then were the 2 huge prawns. Worth it! The lobster bisque was so rich and excellent ($12) and then I had the most tender duck ever and DH said the lamb was amazing. Ordered a $60ish bottle of wine which was fine. Between the excellent food, serve and unbeatable view, why pay more to sit in a closed-in ground floor restaurant like every other city.
