    Warmly greeted, taken directly to table, superb service by Shane - attentive but not hovering. Nicely varied menu. Calamari appetizer was tender and tasty. Opted to go with items from the Prix Fixe offering. Filet Medallions and Maryland Crab Cakes were well presented and delicious.

    Enjoyed our dinner at Ditka's - Oakbrook. All the staff was very accommodating and especially our server Katie. I asked for information about a private party room while we were there and was shown the room and given information about menus etc. without me making a prior appointment. Seafood appetizer platter was a hit, and our server arranged for a dessert sampler platter as well, since one of our party was celebrating a birthday. Room was more noisy than I prefer, but still had a great evening with great food!

    We had a brunch with 7 friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. Some friends had lunch, some breakfast and many tried some of the new menu items. The organic blueberry pancakes were a big hit as well as the new cuban pork salad. It was a fun celebration made extra special by the staff. The whole team at Ditka's Oakbrook really enjoys their jobs and it shows.

    The salads were chilled, the entrees were hot, and the Jennifer was an awesome server. We ordered off the pre fixe menu as the price was right! Ditkas exceeded our expectations with the size of the portions. And we dine as often as we can here as the food, atmosphere, and service will never disappoint.

    I drove from Lake Forest to meet a friend and we were very disappointed. I had the seafood cobb salad which was very bland. Our server was probably one of the least attentive I have ever experienced. She served our drinks and did not come back to take our order for 10 minutes and I believe we were her only table. It was 230 p.m. and there were only 2 tables full and another server was taking care of them. I must say they were being taken care of well. We had to have her track down our server 2x. Once she brought our food, again she did not check back. We were not offered bread and I had to ask the busboy for more salad dressing. We will not return not recommend!

    Dined on 9/2/2014
    We visited Ditka's for our anniversary. All I can say is you should add dinner at Ditka'a to your bucket list, along with their Pot Roast Nachos!!! They are the BEST!!!! At $17 bucks it is WELL WORTH IT, enough to feed 4 people. I had the ribs they were good they have a smoked mesquite flavor to them. My wife had the New York Strip steak, it was very tender and done to perfection. Most dinners are served ala carte so if you want a potato or veggies, plan on spending a few extra bucks for that. You may pay extra for that but there is enough for at least 2 people. We did not have any drinks (alcohol) so plan on spending at least $100. Worth every penny!! Our server was very polite, and gave us exceptional service!! We Will Be BACK!!!

    Any excuse to visit Ditka's works for me. On Saturday I met a friend for brunch. She'd never visited the restaurant before so we were more thoroughly going thru the menu more than I usually do since I'm quite familiar with it. Suddenly she looked up and said: Chicken & Waffles! I only heard about Chicken & Waffles about 4 or 4 years ago but had never had it before. I thought I'd be adventurous. I was NOT disappointed. Sure enough it was WONDERFUL. I say try it; you'll love it. Our waitress, Alice, was a delight --- friendly and attentive without being intrusive --- as were the rest of the staff. Thanks again, Coach, for a lovely brunch.

    The crab bisque was delicious, the filets were perfect, the service was excellent. Everything was great, except that had hoped for a special evening together and, even with a small party, couldn't hear each other over the din. Even with a reservation on a Sunday evening when the restaurant didn't seem very busy, they seated us in the noisiest booth in the house - in the bar right by the bustling open kitchen. Probably should have asked to be moved, but that would have been awkward with our party. So if you want to enjoy conversation as well as food, ask for a quieter area when you make your reservation. Not sure it's very quiet anywhere, but don't get stuck where we did.

    Our 34th anniversary, asked for a booth, got a table way in the back, dropped items off the menu we wanted, disappointed, Our waitress Meagan was rushing us through the entire meal, I was still eating my salad when the entrée came, she kept on trying to close out the check with us, then to really insult us, she brought over 2 glasses of bad champagne!! Needless to say we left the champagne and left the restaurant. We have patronized Ditka's 50+ times and this was the absolute worse meal I have had. I don't think we will be back any time soon, not that Mgmt even cares. Did I bring this to the attention of the Manager, No, they wanted to closed the section we were seated in, our bus boy was more attentive and courteous then the waitress.

    Been here several times, no complaints on food or service. It is so noisy though. Back part is so large that everything echoes and it is hard to have a conversation at the table without constantly having to shout. That's the only reason we don't come here more often. That and they are terrible at being on time with reservations.

    Not a good experience this time. Had to wait over an hour for our food. Had three children ages 7, 5, and 2, always well behaved, but because they were hungry, they became irritable. Waiter came three times to say the kitchen was behind and we finally asked for bread which I then found out we had to request it - thought they could have done that without asking since there was a delay. I am sure the business patrons did not wait an hour for their lunch.
