    I was celebrating my birthday with my husband and son. Everything sounded so yummy so we ordered several different items so we could all share and taste. My husband is very picky and likes plain simple foods. I got him to try different things that were out of the box for him and my son. They loved it all. This is my favorite restaurant. Can't wait to try it for brunch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/15/2014
    I travel to St. Charles for work occasionally and always make a point to stop at Prasino. I've always had a great experience. This last visit was unusually bad mainly due to painfully slow service. The waitress seemed to have a 2 second memory. It was unbearably slow service and the place was not busy at all. In fact we were the last ones in the dining area and still could not get our check even after having to ask twice. Even coffee took about 15-20 minutes to come out, no joke. No apologies, nada. Maybe she was training, but the back end of our meal went into no mans land and everything went into slow motion. Service was terrible.

    Unfortunately, many of the items on the menu were foods that I am allergic to. The salads are prepared using spring mixes and other choices had arugula as an ingredient or other ingredients that do not agree with me. The menu is small. I ordered the spinach stuffed crepes and that dish was excellent.

    This is the second time we have been to Prasino, and we will keep coming back. The menu is a bit limited with not a lot of choices compared to other places, but the food is exquisite, with amazing flavors and great presentation. This time I had the pretzel bread french toast with white chocolate and salted caramel topping and I literally savored every single bite. Prices are good--not cheap but not really expensive, but the servings are good sized. We will continue coming here when we get the chance. Also, the service is always top notch with people making sure your drinks are filled at all times, plates cleared, and food out quickly. The service is not overbearing. You still have your privacy and can enjoy your meal without feeling rushed.

    My scallops off menu "special" selection was perfectly prepared. The scallops were served on a bed of steamed rice with a sweet sauce spiced with grilled jalapeño bits. The mild sweet and spicy flavor blended perfectly with the mild tasting scallops. Our server, Taylor, was spot on as well. Another great meal at Prasino.

    I made a reservation online with open table. When I arrived 30 min early, they were busy, so I checked in with the hostess and told her I would be at the bar until my table was ready. 30 min goes by and I was forgotten about. I then noticed that people who were also waiting at the bar for their table were given pagers. I wasn't. At waiting 45 min I finally just ordered from the bar. The bartenders were phenomenal and quick to serve. I ate the lobster tail, hummus, and scallop and pork belly tacos. Amazing is all I can say. The tacos were so unbelievably good I'll be talking about them for a while. Other than the hostess situation, I would love to go back.

    This wonderful restaurant has something for everyone, especially those who are vegans, vegetarians, meat lovers or who are gluten intolerant. The menu is diverse, and the dishes are scrumptious! Three of us had the special - Alaskan sockeye salmon with gnocchi, green beans, shallots, tomatoes and a generous helping of onion rings sprinkled on top. We all loved it! The Heirloom Tomato Salad was also excellent, as was the fresh berry crepe for dessert. We keep on returning, and the food and service are superb each and every time.

    My oldest son is a seafood rep and knows all the great chefs in town. On his recommendation we chose Prasino for our 31st Anniversary Dinner. It was SO good!!! One pet peeve with Restaurants in modern commercial storefronts is that high ceilings can't be lowered and although it creates a huge space that seems extravagant, it kills the ambiance and intimacy and quadruples the noise levels. All in all, Great food (the freshness,organic and locally sourced items) the service and vibe for a Wednesday evening after a four day Holiday weekend and past dinner rush. We will be back.

    Prasino is one of my favorite places to visit with awesome food and love the quality and fresh choices. I think it has been my favorite place to bring friends and out of town visitors due to the freshness and also selections for vegan and gluten free foods. The only complaint from my new visitors has been the noise level due to the dining acoustics. I love the cleanliness and the service has always been according to my variety of friends I have visiting. Some things should never leave your menu like the beet salad and the morning egg benedict choices. So hope you keep up the good food and service. Thanks for a great new resturant.

    Food - The food is always incredible but the mixed drinks never seem to have alcohol. Any of the dishes with a Latin theme are surprisingly good. Service - Recently the service has been odd. We went for diner on Saturday and the waiter was annoyingly upbeat. Also multiple people kept serving our table. When we asked who our waiter was we were told they all serve the tables together. This means that I have to answer the same questions repeatedly. There were many visits to our table which meant many conversational interruptions. I also went for brunch and the waitress had no idea what she was doing. There was no sharing of the service on that day. Decor - The decor is modern but very loud. They really need some sound dampening.

    The food was great. The service was odd. The waiter gave me a hard time because I didn't order a drink besides water. I didn't want too, but finally had to tell him that I can't drink because I am pregnant. (none of his business) he also gave a friend a hard time because she wanted ice for her water. After we paid our bill, we talked for a while and no one came to our table and asked us if we needed anything else like more drinks. (we were there for over an hour.)

    We had dinner at Prasino previously and found the decor to be fresh, stark, and tasteful. The menu was interesting and the food was delicious. On this our second dinner, we attended as a party of 7. We ordered seven different entres. I preceded mine with their flagship salad (greens, red onions, berries, oranges, balsamic). The greens were bitter and the salad was nothing special. We all agreed that we probably would not be going back as we had to struggle to decide on an entre to try and none of use were enthused about the food when it was delivered.
