Diner Reviews
  • "The service for a higher end (price wise) restaurant was not polished enough. Busboys slid silverware off my plate so I would keep it for the next course and the waiter seemed like he was trained in a breakfast diner. The ribeye was more like a strip steak and the chicken avacado salad was flavorless. The place only had a few tables in it at 7:00 on a Friday night, our first indication that something was wrong. I will not be returning here."

  • "I set the reservation with my wife to reconnect and fall in love again and I believe it hit the spot. We drive 3.5 hours and were not disappointed one but. We made our plans afterwards and had the most amazing day/evening out in the Chicago area! Thank you very much!!"

  • "The restaurant lighting is fairly bright. I think they could turn that down a notch. We ordered martinis and they were out of martini glasses - which is fine, except the martinis they made were incredibly strong. The waiter was more than accommodating and tried to make the drink less strong after we asked. The food was great! No complaints there."

  • "It is now 94 West Bar & Grille and has a different menu. There were several items that were hold overs from the previous menu and the food we had was good. The new wine list is not as deep as the previous list but is very reasonably priced. Service was a touch uneven but the restaurant had a huge private party that night."

  • "If you haven't been here, don't go! If you have, I hope you're like me and don't plan on going again! So the girlfriend and are seated. After 10 minutes the waiter finally came over. He was overwhelmed and flustered. Mind you there was 7 tables seated at the time we sat with 3 servers on the floor. He took our drink order. Drinks came and my gf's martini was supposed to have frozen grapes that they didn't have. We got the caprese app that was very good and timely. Then we ordered dinner and that took about 35 minutes to get. I ordered a medium rare steak (which they are "known" for). Steak was covered in salt and burned on the outside. My gf's burger ordered medium was barely rare. Don't waste your money here!"

  • "94 West offers great variety in food and atmosphere. There is a fine dining side to the restaurant, outdoor seating, and the sports bar area. There is also a range of food you can order from appetizers and sandwiches to their signature steaks. Very welcoming staff as well."

  • "Met for a business lunch to reveiw various forms and paperwork. Table was more then spacious. Server was not pushy but attentive. Overall noise level was comfortable and it was easy to communicate within our group. Food portion was generous and the meal was great (rib eye steak sandwich). Many lunch and dinner selections availble."

  • "Our experience at 94 West was truly made memorable by the owner. He bends over backwards to please his customers. He is friendly and his enthusiasm is contagious. Not so his wife. She is better kept behind the scenes. As for the food, it is good and nicely presented. Our grilled calamari came with white beans and it was a delicious dish. My husband's steak was tender and flavorful. The other couple in our party also enjoyed their dinners. I ordered the white fish and couldn't eat it because of a strong ammonia taste. I didn't say anything, but the owner found out and was beside himself. He brought complimentary dessert and comped my dinner. We would like to go back to try the breakfast served on Saturdays and Sundays."

  • "Ran out of short ribs of beef. The snow crab legs were half hot/ half cold. Terrible seating arrangement. Mediocre customer service. By it being mother's day, they should have planned better. Then have the nerve to request a $5 per person deposit for reservations. "

  • "I've been here several times and each time, the place changes a little. They seem to keep trying new things and while that's not bad, they often change out something good for something bad and vice versa (for example, they took crab legs off the brunch and charged extra for them, but next time, they added them back to the buffet and put tacky brown paper over the table cloths). What is consistent is the food. I've never been disappointed with the meals here. In the past, I've had problems with the service and with the hostess, but all that seems to be a thing of the past. Maybe they're still figuring out what works best for this restaurant, but in the end, they always serve great food and their service has gotten to be quite impressive!"

  • "The food and service was great. I shared with our server that my husband and I was celebrating our 17th year anniversary and all we received was a congrats by the server Not that anything special was expected but many restaurants would have given a free dessert or even an acknowledgement from the manager. Oh well, overall we enjoyed the food"

  • "Our family dined at 94 West for my mothers birthday. We decided to do the buffet since we all enjoy crab legs. The crab legs were not fresh at all. The overall experience was good however since there was live music which we did enjoy. If we decide to dine here in the future we will not choose the buffet."

  • "My SO and I chose to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and my acceptance to medical school here. Both of us loved the food and the environment. The waiter was super attentive and very helpful with the menu. There was absolutely nothing about our meal to complain about, except possibly the price. We knew it was going to be expensive going in and like I said we were celebrating so we didn't mind but I don't know that I would normally pay that much money for a meal. Overall, it was a fantastic dinner and we would definitely go back."

  • "Went on the recommendation of a friend whom I have since unfriended. I know it's a steak place but I wasn't in the mood. I had the ribs and shrimp while my date had the chicken. I didn't expect Famous Dave but these ribs were BAD. The dry rub they use was so overpowering you couldn't taste the meat. Not worth the price. Won't return."

  • "Their prime rib was thick cut and outstanding, super tender and a very big array of items to choose from on the buffet. Crab legs, mahi mahi, their Mac and cheese was awesome too. I would definitely come back here"

  • "A group of friends and I had dinner at 94 West Saturday night. Our reservations were for 4:00 and 2 of the 8 people in my party arrived 30 min late so we had drinks at the bar. The bar attendant was nice and friendly. However one of the hostesses mentioned we were going to lose our reservations since some of the guests were late. However, no one else was at the restaurant when we first got there! Had it been packed and busy, I would have understood, but since the place was empty, I didn't see the issue. Our waitress was okay, but some of her comments were rude. Also the ambiance was not great. Will not return again."

  • "I frequent 94 West regularly. I went to celebrate a friend's birthday, which is the day after Valentine's Day. We were told upon seating that out entrees would take 45 minutes because they were so busy. We order appetizers that came out in 20 minutes and our food came out an hour later. Our lamb chops were small and burned. I am going to attribute this horrible experience to Valentine's Day falling on the weekend. I do plan on returning."

  • "My husband and I went here for valentines day. First time here for a special occasion and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The one downfall of the whole experience was that my husband got the 22 oz prone rib and he asked for it medium well but it ended up being more pink all around. Of course he despised sending any food back so he ate it. I also tried his and it was pretty amazing just wish it was cooked a little more. Besides that experience was great considering how packed the place was. Thanks for a great experience we will definitely be back soon !"
