Diner Reviews
  • "First time dining here and everything was great! We came to brunch. The service was very attentive, food was pretty good, and the drinks were great! Loved how spacious the layout is, most places for brunch it feels like your on top of everyone, that wasn't the case here. Would come back!"

  • "My brother and I dined here a few nights ago - a first for both of us. He had the pork belly and scallop tacos and I had the short ribs. There were four small tacos to an order- tasty but not memorable. Three fork-tender portions of the short ribs were served - one was really fatty and almost unedible. The other two were leaner and much more enjoyable. The cauliflower gratin was creatively delicious. I appreciated the generous portion of Swiss chard however it was pretty sandy. A basic for any decent restaurant includes proper vegetable washing and prep and this was an obvious oversight. Service was standard."

  • "I visited here a few weeks ago with girlfriends for brunch and we ended up waiting an hour for a patio table-which was no problem we had a few of the amazing mimosas at the inside bar. So when I went back with my boyfriend this weekend for lunch around noon, I made a reservation and only had to wait about 5 minutes. Only downside is the host/hostesses aren't too friendly. Unless you go up and interrupt them speaking to each-other they wont ask to help you. As a previous restaurant hostess- good thing i'm pushy :)"

  • "Love the look and feel of this place. Contemporary and not pretentious. It feels a bit upscale while still being comfortable. There is a big outdoor patio and a lot of seating in the bar area. Food is really good. I had the lobster avocado which is unique and delicious and the fish tacos which were great. There's some fun summer drinks too."

  • "Went for late lunch and the menu was pretty expansive (incl beverages). Great quality ingredients made a killer, melt in your mouth pork belly BLT; a way flavorful flatbread; a warm Mediterranean chick pea side dish and some great cocktails. Prices were fine since the portions were so generous that 3 way sharing wouldn't be out of order. The sidewalk cafe is comfortable with some patio-like areas for groups. Breakfast menu looked incredibly decadent. I can't believe we missed out on this place for almost 3 years but we'll be back soon. So many other items to try and with a track record of tasting even better than described, we'll be back often."

  • "I have been to Prasino only 2x. The first time I loved it! The drinks were fantastic, food was good, service was great. My second time was not as good as the first. They changed the drink menu, I was jus there 3 weeks ago and the fabulous drink my friend wanted was no longer on the menu and they didn't have the ingredients to make it. They also changed the appetizer menu. We had guacamole and chips the last time we were there and those too are off the menu. Who stops serving chips and guacamole?! I am all for changing the menu up, seasonally, not weekly or monthly. The drinks they offered were still delicious. It started to rain on the patio and we had to go in, it was great that the tables in the bar were reserved for us. Classy!"

  • "Our waitress was horrible. I mean horrible. Sweet as pie with no clue how to properly attend to a table. We sat outside as a party of 4 for a long night of cocktails and dining only to have a great ambiance and good food be ruined by a waitress who's accent was so thick we had to constantly ask her to repeat what she was saying and constantly forgot we were there. Very disappointed. Where is the manager and how do that not properly train front of the house staff?"

  • "This is a great place to enjoy a variety of foods, most really tasty. The lobster avocado dish, bruschetta, salads are all tasty and creative. Not really sure why a restaurant needs tacos AND sushi but it's a nice place to take a group so that everyone can get something they like."

  • "Good place for eight of us, one being a two year old. Good service, interesting menu. A couple of us arrived early and had a good drink at the bar. A "happening" kind of place."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our Father's Day breakfast at Prasino's. Even our picky teenager had good things to say. The contemporary outdoor dining space was large and inviting on a warm weekend morning. The menu offered favorite breakfast items, but with a creative twist. Crab Cakes eggs benedict. Pretzel brioche french toast. Sweet potato hash....tasty little things that made the menu delightfully surprising. My first bite of the enormous HIppie Omelet (Basil, Spinach, Goat Cheese) was an explosion of fresh herb flavors. Fantastic. Recommended. (Easy parking on the weekends, by the way, as you can use the parking lot at the school right across the street. A big plus!)"

  • "Our food was just ok. Two of us had fish tacos and the fish was somewhat "fishy" tasting. So many places do fish tacos these days - if they are on a menu they should be excellent - or don't do them. However - love the atmosphere here. Comfortable and a great spot in the neighborhood."

  • "I expected a lot because I had heard such good things about Prasino. It's very attractive in all ways but the food was good, not great. Granted, I only had fish tacos, but they were kind of tasteless. The lobster and avocado appetizer was yummy and the drinks were very refreshing. I would go again and try something else."

  • "Went here for the first time with a friend from out of town last week, had a delicious brunch with drinks on Sunday. The food was amazing, fresh ingredients and everyone's dish was equally good. Decided to go back a few days later, they have a great drink special m-w and serve breakfast to 3 everyday! Seriously love this place nestled in wicker park."

  • "Food was decent, ambiance was nice, and plenty of outdoor seating. Interesting drink and menu sections. Ended up dropping $70 on brunch though which is $$$. Don't recommend this place a regular spot, more of a once in a while meet up spot."

  • "When my friends and ordered drinks, we were steered away from mimosas by our server because they hardly had alcohol in them. I didn't care about that, I cared about the taste. After we had ordered other drinks, my friend asked for split checks and the server said, "Relax, we are not there yet" I thought that was rude, because she was being polite. For food, my friends and I had chosen items on the breakfast menu. We first ordered the side of vegan pancakes. Our server said, "Guys, oh no, it's 3pm." He said he would ask the chef if he would consider making an exception, and the chef said it was okay. So we continued, and the server said, "Just the pancakes." At this point I was done with his tone and attitude. We stuck with drinks and left."

  • "The food we had was all excellent! From the butternut squash ravioli which was out of this world, to the short rib tacos, bacon flat bread and salmon - everyone said their food was outstanding and fresh and full of flavor! Love the idea of the outdoor patio and I was told that it rocks when it is open. The ambiance on the inside, was stark and somewhat cold - I would not say romantic or warm. But I would go back to this restaurant in a second. "

  • "Food was amazing, service was excellent, my only comment is that it was a bit loud but I don't personally mind that, and it had been raining so the patio was closed, otherwise I'm sure it would have been quieter. Overall excellent. "

  • "The food was good, but the service was AWFUL!!!:( I've been there before, but this was the absolute WORST SERVICE!! We needed many normal things. Even a fork!!! I mean come on!! We waited forever for someone to come take our order in the beginning & it got worse the rest of the night. I think we were there for 3 hours!:( "

  • "They try too hard to be hip. It was hard to order. You gotta be prelates for overly healthy options that taste like cardboard. And the service was smothering. We were constantly being interrupted by a multitude of servers and "is everything ok?" checks. I know that's a strange comment to maha, but it was a strange experience. "

  • "This is the second time I have been to Prasino. The first time was on a Friday night. It was energetic and loud and that was just fine. The many dishes the four of us had were all fantastic! Along with our service. This time was earlier Wednesday evening. It was still loud but because tons of kids were running around. My date and I truly love children but they and their families took over the place--it was rather nerve-wracking (all the difference being who controlled their parents and who controlled their kids!). Once again our meal was very good! Service was good but a little 'cold'. I was hoping for the quality and experience we had the first time but I still give Prasino a 4-star knowing my original experience was a 5-star."
