Cafe Aroma provides a nice alternative to nearby bar food restaurants. The menu is not vast but the selections are well-chosen, well-prepared, and delicious. We had an excellent Italian vegetable-sausage soup followed by entrees of scallops (fabulous) and grouper (a stand-in for redfish, and much better outcome!) Everything was fresh and reasonably priced. The wine list was limited, but sufficient, and provided value. Our server Ramon was so good, and so nice, but was overworked. We've been here before and will definitely come back.

Good addition to downtown Winnetka
Well prepared food, nicely priced. Just lose the Edith Piaf muzak.

Our server Ramon was outstanding. Flat iron steak with potatoes was first rate. With food this good, this place should be way more crowded at dinner!

This is a lovely place to dine right in the heart of Winnetka. The owners are anxious to please and the food is delicious.

We had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The place is small but very cute and the tables were well spaced so we were not too close to anyone else. We will definitely go back.

Wake up Winnetka!
my husband and I ate at Cafe Aroma on a Friday night. Scarcely anyone there. Usually that is a warning sign that something is wrong.
Boy were we surprised . We had lovely service and very good food, The apple salad was quite special. I think the chef lightly grilled the apples were lightly grilled. The fish was cooked just right, mine served on a bed of fennel .
The only thing that I missed was an extra vegetable, which many restaurants are serving as an extra side.
I gave ambience a 3 because, for my taste, the lights were too bright and it was too quiet, which won't be the case once the North Shore finds this little gem.

Friendly staff with quality food and the food had uniquel twists so not your run of the mill place.
