Gourmet food for less calories!This restaurant prides itself on all entrees being under 500 calories. Portions are hearty. All fresh ingredients, locally grown produce, etc. I had the Wild Alaskan copper salmon special with dill sauce and asparagus. It was outstanding!! Wine list is quite extensive with many small wineries listed. This may be my new favorite restaurant!! a great concept without skimping on portions or great food.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Find!I had heard about the Glen Prairie for quite a while, but never had a chance to try it out. My sister took me out to dinner for my birthday and said I could pick the place. We went on a Tuesday night. The food was outstanding! My sister has gluten issues, and almost everything on the menu was available gluten free. Her gluten free mac and cheese was a real treat for her, and it was delicious (I stole a bite!). My carmelized onion soup was wonderful. All in all a very nice experience.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA typically nice evening outThis restaurant is only disappointing when the food is just good and not spectacular. The pork tenderloin was good, but probably could have been seasoned a little bit more. The chicken was amazing. I wish I could remember what it was called. As an aside, I think it's a bad habit to get into to let your customers listen to their tablet computers without headphones. It sets a bad precedent where many patrons could be in the dining area, each listening to their own entertainment while sharing it with everyone else.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI love supporting businessesI love supporting businesses that rely on local, organic food. The fact that they accommodate gluten free diets is fantastic (which I must have)6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality IngredientsI went to eat at Glen Prairie with my fiancee and a couple friends for an early lunch. The restaurant is very clean and nice in appearance. The restaurant was surprisingly empty, which made me wonder how the food would be (you know a restaurant is good when it is packed full of people), but I was surprised at the menu. There were so many options, including vegetarian and gluten free options as well. This restaurant seems to use good quality ingredients. My friends and I were all very satisfied with our food and our service.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free HeavenI have to eat gluten free so finding a restaurant that has more than one or two gluten free items on the menu is wonderful. The first time I was there I had the Scallops and Mushroom Risotto and it was amazing. This time I had Espresso Rubbed Pork and it was fantastic. I want to keep going back so that I can try everything on the menu that is gluten free which is about 90% of the menu.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food good serviceWe really enjoyed our dinner at Glen Prairie. Very cool setting, great food and service.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful findA friend and I went because we saw on Chicago's Best. Our waitress was very personable and helpful. We had a beet bruschetta appetizer that was very good. I had a crusted pike that came with green beans and their signature mac and cheese. Delicious. My friend had a bbq pork served on top of a large bowl of mac and cheese. She said it was great. However, they didn't notice we had no bread until one of the staff walked by and asked if we wanted more and then brought it. We realized that our bread plates were left on the table next to us. They need to train the staff so that mistakes like that don't happen. I will definitely go back. I enjoyed it because it was not a run of the mill place.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this placeWe love this restaurant...menu changes by season, but also keeps excellent standbys. The staff is friendly, interacting...always willing to help you with a recommendation on food and drinks. The decor is great, relaxed, urban feel. I would recommend for couples, girls night out or any occasion. Also a great place to stop and have a cocktail and appetizer.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprise!We heard others mention this hotel - restaurant, but never really thought about eating at a restaurant inside a hotel when we live in a quaint town with other "cute" restaurants. We were surprised at how wonderful the service and food were. They offer gluten free and vegetarian options on most menu items. We had a large group and we loved it. We will definitely return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Brunch 2013The food was excellent. We will have to do it again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayBrunch on Mother's Day was great. It was our first time dining at Glen Prairie and we will definitely come back. The food was very good and a nice amount of variety was available. I especially enjoyed the Mac & Cheese & deserts. Thank you for a yummy and fun Mother's Day experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall very nice, but disappointinOverall very nice, but disappointing that the flatbread came out burnt.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationWe had a wonderful celebration. The food was great and the waitress was wonderful.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's easy to be gluten free here!Almost everything can be ordered gluten free and it still tastes amazing! BBQ Pork and gluten free Mac and Cheese is where its at! They even have gluten free beer!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOK, satisfying, but not spectacularFood was well prepared with blend of unusual flavors. Cheese stuffed mushroom appetizers were excellently balanced in flavor and texture and are not to be missed. Food presentation was uneven. Very noisy until the crowd left and it was a little hard to hear the waitress. Seating was cramped with multiple parties in either the bar area or in a long table/booth with chairs on one side. Overall, a nice experience. Price for four people with one shared appetizer, four salads, 3 entrees, one burger, split deserts and one craft beer each was about $200 including tip.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gluten free optionsWe had dinner with a couple who eat gluten free and Glen Prairie had a vast number of items from their menu that were either gluten free or could be made gluten free. My husband and I are not gluten free eaters and we marveled at how delicious the gluten free food was, primarily the gluten free flatbread crust and the cookie and chocolate cake. It was our second time there and we had the same waitress, Trudy. She was awesome! We will definitely eat there again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA convenient location forA convenient location for a small group of us to meet & have a good meal before heading off to another event is what we were looking for. What we found was a place that we'd all like to try again.
The wine & cocktail lists offered variety w/o being overwhelming & the menu followed suit. Some of us opted for specials of the day, others were equally pleased with the selections presented on the standard menu. The wine & food were fantastic & the bill fair.
Service started outstandingly, but as the place filled up our server was stretched to cover other parties - disappointing, but the food warrants giving them another try.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was busy.The restaurant was busy. We liked the menu selection and the variety of fresh ingredients.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!Amazing food!!

Very friendly & courtious staff ! The menu has something for everyone and the food is out of this world gooood !!! Great place for a date, or a casual night out with some friends . I Highly recomend Glen Prairie !4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe mac and cheese, soup (redThe mac and cheese, soup (red bell pepper bisque and an onion soup were both tried) were fabulous. Great steak and espresso pork tenderloin. I even tried a bit of my daughter's chicken tenders and they were delicious! Our server was excellent. We will definitely put this on our short list of places to return to in the western suburbs.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have now been to Glen PrairieWe have now been to Glen Prairie several times and it always is outstanding. Last night I had the special which was roasted sturgeon with caramelized leek risotto. Absolutely delicious. Also tried their skinny acai berry martini and was surprised how good that was as well. I have had "skinny" cocktails before and they are often watery. This had a nice sweet/sour flavor and packed a punch. Hope it really was the 110 calories listed on the menu! Great job Glen Prairie--we are lucky to have you in the neighborhood.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the Trip!!!It was our first visit. Our server and the Owner were friendly, helpful and accommodating. We had 3 appetizers and we'd order all again. The beet bruschetta was garlicky and flavorful with fresh wonderful beets. The stuffed mushrooms had a cheesy filling. The shrimp and grits was our favorite. We've never had grits prepared so well. Pulled pork sandwiches and the open faced braised short rib sandwich was shared by the 3 of us. The mac and cheese sides rocked and 2 of the 3 of us loved the rustic fries. The braised short rib was moist, tender and well-seasoned. And the mini desserts....brilliant! We will definitely go back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family of 6 adults attendedOur family of 6 adults attended the Easter Brunch for a late seting, 3 PM. Food offerings were excellent and all with a certain flair or variation that made them unique to Glen Prairie. We had selected this restaurant specifically for some of the items offered on the Easter Brunch, such as the rumchata french toast. Even though we were one of the last seatings for Brunch, the selections were all fresh and fully stocked for our many return visits. The dessert buffet was to die for and we OD on the numerous chocolate offerings. We will be returning to Glen Prairie for future dining.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing selection of optionsAmazing selection of options for every person. The food is unique and well prepared. Very accommodating to allergies especially those with gluten intolerance. This makes dining out for us easy, relaxing, and fun when it can often be a difficult and frustrating experience. Not only is their menu accommodating, but the food is AMAZING!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat small neighborhood placegreat small neighborhood place great food selection3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the scallop with risotto;Enjoyed the scallop with risotto; pike with mac/cheese; squash ravioli.

Be tempted by dessert, but go for the mini servings.
Will return - there was much more on the menu that needs to be tried.
Surprisingly great restaurant for one associated with a hotel.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food!After reading the positive reviews on this restaurant, we decided to give it a try and we really liked it. The appetizers were both really good - their signature mac n cheese and we also had the stuffed mushrooms. Both entries (espresso rubbed pork and braised beef were delicious as well. For desert we went with the chocolate chip cookie sundae. Everything we ate was very good and we want to go back to try other items on the menu that looked good as well. Highly recommend!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and well priced.

Surprising for a hotel restaurant; little too loud though; could talk to person directly across but one down much too hard to converse. Very "pretty place" reminded me of Perennial in Lincoln Park. Food tasty, although short ribs were a tad too fatty.
Eileen, our server was one of the best...personable and genuine!
I feel jeans should not be warn by the waitstaff. Takes away from ambiance...this is not a fast food place!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAll organic, local and glutenAll organic, local and gluten free options...plus taste is outstanding...and affordable. We've introduced many friends to this restaurant and they all love it3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGlen Prairie is a hidden gemGlen Prairie is a hidden gem in the western suburbs. It has the ambiance and unique menu that is more in line with a city restaurant than a suburban restaurant.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!We are never disappointed here. The food is freshly prepared, and they have unique accompaniments (roasted cauliflower, homemade mac 'n cheese, polenta, mashed sweet potatoes). I love their espresso-rubbed pork tenderloin.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique Lombard RestaurantWe visited on a quiet Monday night. We had excellant service. Though not a traditional set up for kids, they were very accomodating and were wonderful with my 16 month old son. The macaroni and cheese was fantastic. I enjoyed my beet salad and butternut squash ravioli very much. My mom seemed to like her burger. My husband had the pork chop which he said was a little bland. Overall, great atmosphere, wonderful service and solid food. A unique restaurant separate from the many national chains that dominate the area. We'll definitely be back!2/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost all food was divineAlmost all food was divine and Eileen an outstanding server. Sea scallops tremendously sandy with each and every bit. Everything else would bring us all back and I will recommend highly other than the scallops. Love the GF options and healthier food choices. It is a delight to dine out at a conscious restaurant. Thank you.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAgain, Glen Prairie was aAgain, Glen Prairie was a fantastic choice for a special occasion, and this time we brought our almost two year old daughter.
