Prasino - La Grange
Great Father's Day BrunchWe made a reservation for Father's day brunch and we needed to move the time earlier. It was a busy day and they were able to accomodate us as best as they could, we did have to wait, but that was understandable given it was a busy day. The food is always consistently great. We tend to order the same thing each time and is always the same in quality and taste. We love this restaurant and we are so glad that it is in La Grange.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great foodI had the lobster-stuff avocado again - fantastic, fresh tasting, and not too heavy. The two men both had the skirt steak. The orzo that accompanies it is delicious. Our fourth tried the squash ravioli. Good!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat double birthday dinnerWe came to Prasino with a party of five for a birthday dinner for my daughter and I. Heard about it from a friend who explained a little about the organic/local/gluten free philosophy. Since we own an organic livestock far, and I eat gluten free, this was our cup of tea. We had a leisurely dinner outside on the sidewalk, the staff was outstanding in serving us. We ordered: the cod with black beans, the black bean burger, the bricked chicken, and the short ribs and the fish tacos. All of these various dishes were delicious. We had one of the sushi appetizers which was fresh and good. The wine selection includes biodynamic and organic wines and is fairly large. Will return.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and serviceWe always enjoy good food and service at Prasino. Our dinner were excellent but the waitress told us that the menu would be changing this week so we are ready to go back and try the new stuff.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food as alwaysHad the black bean burger, which was great but didn't hold together well. Had to abandon the bun. Still enjoyed it!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. TheThe food was excellent. The beef barley soup was so delicious. Haven't had soup that good since a trip to Europe 12 years ago. Recommendation: Braised beef ribs and potato wedges. Loved the chai latte tea. Atmosphere was quiet, neat and clean with attention to detail. Definitely will return.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThursday DinerWent to Prasinos for dinner and our waiter, Luis was very friendly and attentive! He showed us how drinks and food choices where listed and explained portion sizes well. The sushi and mussels were delicious! The salmon was very moist! My bourbon fizz was very good too! It was a wonderful experience, and I look forward to trying the outdoor seating the next time I visit!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodService and food was great .. definitely going back!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant entrance and decorThe short ribs with cauliflower gratin and spinach was "melt in the mouth good." Butternut squash ravioli lived up to its rep: filling but light and attractive. Told that the "delicious" breads had been omitted from the menu we were sharply reminded of our low calorie intentions. We survived to lose another pound! And we passed on the dessert menu!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experience every time!!!This was my 3rd trip and I cannot say enough about Prasino!! The food is outstanding! I plan to go back again and again!! Wish they would open a location in Orland Park - it would be an instant hit !!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experienceThis visit was for a working lunch. We sat in a booth and were able to carry on our conversation without any trouble. The food was excellent. One member of our party is a vegetarian and was amazed at the number of selections that fit her needs. Everyone's food was excellent and the service perfect. I highly recommend Prasino.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMProvided a fantabulous Mother'sProvided a fantabulous Mother's Day meal and family get together5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgood choice but make reservationsGood food, nice menu, and interesting drink options. My wife and I had a good mothers day breakfast minus the water that got spilt by a waiter onto the floor and my coat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy & delicious foodLots of good healthy & tasty choices. Love the green and vegan options. Great presentation of food. It was mothers day and we found the noise level too high and the service level too low. It is well worth a return visit at a less chaotic time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommendThe menu and food were great. They included gratuity for our part of 7 and 3 of the party was small children. I think that was rude. We would of probably paid more than the 20%.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Beautiful, tastefulGood food. Beautiful, tasteful décor.

Must return to try other menu items5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWalkable and delectableDelightful early evening meal with wife and sister. We all loved it! Great service and advice from Brad! Nothing that was not delicious.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep Going Back!Prasino keeps impressing me every time I go. I have been there for several dinners and today was able to enjoy brunch. Sitting outside with my pomegranate iced tea (delicious) and enjoying the outdoors with my friend was perfect. The service was ideal- attentive, but not obnoxious. She ordered the fish tacos and loved them. I had the turkey club and swapped out the cheese and had it on multigrain bread instead of a croissant. The dressing and avocado on this sandwich made it awesome. Can't wait to go back!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Meal, Friendly ServiceI went on a sunny Saturday afternoon and had a delightful meal. I had made the reservation but my party was running very late. I called ahead and the hostess was very kind and forgiving because I gave her the heads up. When I arrived and my party still hadn't, she again as very accommodating. Finally, my party arrived and we sat outside. We each had something off the brunch menu and none of us were disappointed. The lobster-stuffed avocado was as decadent and luxurious as it sounds, but not too heavy for a Saturday afternoon. The mango salsa and verblanc sauce kept it from being stuffy and thick. My father had the smoked salmon platter and loved every morsel. Our server was attentive and friendly and we will definitely be returning.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI always have a great mealI always have a great meal at Prasinos, and the service is usually outstanding (on one past visit it wasn't the greatest). However, because of health concerns I recently started a gluten free diet. While there are some gluten free options on the menu, I wish there were more to keep me coming back regularly.
I do love that they list the type(s) of diet(s) each item adheres to (ie vegetarian, gluten free) - thank you for that!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have a wonderfulWe always have a wonderful male waiter-he is great and explains the food and is very attentive to all our needs!
We will be back!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were again pleased withWe were again pleased with our visit to Prasino in LaGrange. They never fail to get it right there between the food and the service and the atmosphere. They've got a great thing going and I'm thrilled it's so close to me that I get to enjoy it often!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPrasino is a wonderful reliefPrasino is a wonderful relief from the salty, cheese topped everything that is vogue today. To be able to actually see what you ordered in its natural form is wonderful. They have great teas, non-alcoholic drinks and alcoholic drinks. All are made with fresh "green" ingredients. The food is prepared this way as well. All ingredients are fresh and unadulterated. One of my friends had never been here and was very impressed and intends to return with her husband.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe savory "before 2PM" dishesThe savory "before 2PM" dishes were better than the sweet. We ordered the bananas foster crepes and carrot cake pancakes. Compared with our skillets they paled. They were tasty but not as deep and intricate as the skillets. Wish we had room and time for Omelets and Benedicts! Can't wait to go back for more!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been going here for severalI've been going here for several years. Four times in the last four weeks. Our latest favorites are the lobster-stuffed avocado - I usually have it as my entree - and the grilled skirt steak - the orzo that accompanies it is fantastic - wish you get it as a side. Tried the ribeye a few times, but it was always pretty fatty. Always a side of grilled bread. Great Bloody Marys.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is VERY diverse.The menu is VERY diverse.
