    I would recommend a dozen other places before this place. Way over priced for what you get. My pork chop (named after Ditka) was like eating beef jerky...for $34 I would expect more. Weak service overall.

    The food is very good and so was the service but the restaurant is too noisy to have a good conversation. Also, conversations at nearby tables wafted over to ours. Generally though, the experience was very good.

    Made reserv. with note that we were celebrating a birthday. Got stuck in traffic. CALLED and asked them not to give our table up. Got there 10 min late - was told the only table available was a booth in the bar, that there was a 30 minute wait if that wasn't agreeable. Not wanting to wait, we took what was offered. Bad choice. Noise level was LOUD, was difficult to have a conversation in the booth. Server was professional, but disappeared when we asked for a few min to look at the wine list. Bread wasn't brought to the table until AFTER we had ordered wine, FINISHED appetizers, ordered mains. No mention of the birthday by the server. This was our first visit, and with all the other fine dining options in Oakbrook area, will be the last.

    We were looking for a nice round table - they did it. Looking for a good Sunday meal with friends, they did it. Looking for efficient service and they flunked. Plus the place was too loud for conversation. With such good food, Durkas need to tone it down somewhere in the restaurant.

    Ditka's in Oakbrook IL is great. Took friends out for their anniversary and had a great time. The best food I have eaten at a restaurant in a long time, and I have been to several "good" restaurants recently. Service was excellent and although crowded it was still comfortable. My husband and I are planning to go back soon. We really were impressed with the quality of the food and cocktails. My husband had New York Strip, I had Shrimp Diavolo, our friends had pork chops and Chicken Piccata. Everyone was happy with their selections.

    It was a surprise for our Anniversary - it was a great experience and have already decided we are going back with the family. Would recommend to all that have not been to one of his restaurants. Even told family in Arizona to go and check it out. Priced well for any food lover and loved that they also have many items that are for allergies, these show up right on the menu and you do not have to ask what a way to gain more business.

    Ditka's made our 5 year anniversary celebration very special. The waiter started by saying happy anniversary, and ended our experience with 2 glasses of champagne and flour-less chocolate cake...complementary. Truly a spectacular evening from beginning to end. The meal was outstanding, from the DELICIOUS and FRESH seafood platter to start, the fresh bread, the AMAZING sea bass special and my husbands perfectly cooked filet, to the cocktails and wine, each bite was wonderful. We took a raspberry cheesecake home to eat the next day...also amazing. The staff was polite, attentive and made excellent recommendations the 4 times I asked!!! Our waiter William was awesome! we will definitely be going back.

    This was the first time I used the App. It was perfect! I was scared at first because I had 6 friends with me and I was talking about the app. So they told me take care of our reservations! It worked out Perfect! Our show we went to was done earlier than I thought so we arrived at Dika's 45 minutes early! We were told it would be closer to our reservation time. Within 15 we had our table! Too Cool!

    My wife and I went on a Saturday night at 7PM. The food was very good (steaks). My compliments to the chef. The restaurant was well maintained and very clean. However, the place was LOUD. Our waitress (looked barely old enough to drive) had to shout the specials because the ambient noise was overwhelming. It was worse than a bar full of rowdy twenty somethings. The wait staff was friendly, but young and inexperienced. The place isn't cheap. Should you have to ask 2-3 times for the same thing and be told "oh, yeah". There obviously isn't a dress code. Thinking it was upscale, we dressed accordingly. Others did as well. Then you have the t-shirt and flip-flop types. To each their own, just don't expect a fine dining experience.

    We went with friends, first time for them. I had chicken piccata, excellent, my husband had fried chicken, also excellent. Our friends both ordered the double bone in steak, he was not happy, she liked it. Complaint; out server told us bread would be out shortly after taking drink order, bread came out with our dinners. We love Oakbrook Ditla's, had grandson communion party and my 70 surprise birthday party there. Breakfast is the best. Thank you for a great place to dine.

    This place shows some wear & tear. It needs major refreshing. Don't look closely at the carpeting until after you eat! The chairs and even the menus are well into their final days. The room is very loud and it was very difficult to have a conversation with our party of four. The service was very good; attentive but not overly so. The food was so-so. The perch would be best described as fried thick breading stuffed with overcooked dried out perch. The crab cakes entrée was bland and served with equally bland rice. The halibut was good but it was breaded which masks the fish's flavor. The seafood pasta diavolo was very forgettable with two shrimp and an almost tasteless pasta diavolo sauce. The crab bisque soup was good but too salty.
