Great choices as well as fabulous vegetarian dishes. Kudos to the chef and David the floor manager for a great doing experience!

First time diner, I was very
First time diner, I was very happy with the food and the service. The food came quickly, I was dinng with someone who had many food restrictions, and they were easliy met without hesitation.
I was meeting my friend at 8:00 I arrived at 7:45 I gave the person at the podeum my friends name and said I would wait in the bar. My friend arrived about 5 minutes after I did but she had no idea I was there, she also gave the person at the podiem my name, and chose to be seated. It wasn't until 20 minutes later that we realized we were both there.

Went for lunch on a Thursday
Went for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. Not very busy but I could tell it was a swanky hangout.
Food was great. Service was great. Only drawback was that it was a bit pricey!

Went at 7:30 on a Saturday
Went at 7:30 on a Saturday night, everything was satisfactory. Had soup to start, arctic char and pot roast for dinner. The pot roast really is the best. The server was fine but I felt a bit rushed and he didn't smile haha... The manager came to talk to us to make sure everything was good which is always nice. Will return and hope to sit in the front of the restaurant instead of the back!

Great ambiance and food
the food was great as well as the room we ate in. All types of attire seemed to fit. My wife and dressed casual, but there were others who dressed even more relaxed and there were even a few sport jackets in the crowd. Nobody seemed out of place. Also the bar had an excellent choice of spirits. Lots of Gin types i've never heard of before.

Was there during the week
Was there during the week so it was fairly quiet. I went to meet a friend and we had a lot of catching up to do so appreciated that the server was attentive but did not hover. We both had the potato leek soup which was very good and dinner salads....which were good but make it hard to judge the menu. Nice ambiance. I would go there again.

This was our second time dining
This was our second time dining at this restaurant. Everything was 5 star, but a special mention was our waiter " Jeff "who definitely added to a very memorable evening. We will be adding "The Bank" to our favorite dining list.
4/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was well prepared and the portion sizes were just right. We enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and never felt rushed yet our food seemed to always arrive at the right time. Our server was very friendly and helpful as we made our selections. We were attracted by the local organic foods that were served and the attention paid to the way their food was either grown or raised.

It was a fun dining experience. The food was wonderful and I liked the presentation. We received very good service from our waiter and it was a very busy evening. We will definitely come back.

This is the third time we've dined at the Bank - an anniversary, Mother's Day and Easter. Each of those occasions has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. The food is first rate, the service exceptional and the dining room is just beautiful. Dining outdoors, on the deck, is fun too. Overall, highly recommend this local spot.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We really enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch at the Bank! Lots of options both on the breakfast and lunch side of things (which suits my family as my wife is a Breakfast person and I'm a Lunch). Kids found plenty of things they liked as well, and the dessert table was EXCELLENT!

I ordered something that I really didn't care for and they made me something else without a question! Awesome place!!!! Will go back again.

Found The Bank to be a great place. Went for a birthday date and had a great time. They emphasize simplicity in their menu. It was fresh and delicious. Just what we were looking for. Had the perfect meal to accompany a crisp white wine while enjoying the outdoor seating on a beautiful summer evening. We'll be back soon!
6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was absolutely fantastic! The price point for what you get was spot on. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and my wife and I plan on eating here again in the future!

This restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating, both providing a nice dining experience. The outdoor tables have an overhang awning allowing oyu to eat outside without being completely exposed to the sun. The waitress was fun adn informative and the food was great. It was our 1st time there and I would go back.
6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food itself was very good, but there really was nothing spectacular on the menu other than a caprese salad made with crab.

Great for Lunch
Our group of six each had something different off of the menu. Everyone was pleased and talked about how nice it will be to have a great lunch spot right down from our new offices in Wheaton.
My boss was saying he can't wait to walk to lunch in downtown Wheaton, we are moving from Warrenville. The locally grown menu is notable as you really taste the difference in fresh food. The wait staff is experienced and it shows.
We had a great experience and the only thing we would have liked to do was sit outside, it was just too hot for us.
I think the Bank is to be commended on keeping a consistently, high quality menu for lunch and dinner.
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service here is wonderful and I'm hoping to become a frequent diner at this establishment.

The noise level was high due
The noise level was high due to sitting by the outside patio. Inside by the booths is quieter. Love that locally sourced foods are used. Something for everyone on the menu.

Went for the outstanding lamb
Went for the outstanding lamb and pasta dish and our waitress, Debbie, told us how great the Mediterranean Rabbit was. Went with the rabbit and it was fantastic! Now we have the dilemma of which one to have next time - or maybe another fabulous dish! Can't wait!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
2nd time there, and it did not disappoint. Great service, food, and atmosphere. I was particularly taken by the servers' attentiveness to the menu and our experience. I would recommend The Bank to anyone.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Like that there are no surprises. We have been there 5 times and will continue to bring friends from out of town

Great spot in downtown Wheaton
I have always wanted to check this place out and now regret waiting so long. BlueCheese Mac N Cheese WOW! Great place and most important GREAT FOOD!

Our family's favorite restaurant.
Chef Patrick makes this restaurant's menu a treat, not only b/c it's delicious but it draws only from local farms, that he visits and chooses himself. We go there pretty much every Friday night and the food preparations are consistently delicious and done perfectly to our tastes. The staff now know us and some of them even remember our favorite wine! The ambiance is great, especially Friday evenings in the summer when the Old Car Show is going on outside on Front Street in downtown Wheaton. Their kid's menu also is great and it's our 8-yr old's favorite restaurant too.

Over The Top
This was our first visit and didn't expect the boisterous environment (which would have been enjoyable had we been looking for that experience). The manager and waiter went well beyond expectations and seated us in a more private setting which they had to specially prepare for us. The food was great and highly recommend The Bank Restaurant.

Good Gluten Free/Organic Find!
Great restaurant for people on Gluten Free Diet..Almost everything on the menu is organic and grass fed. The have a ton of gluten free food, they even brought gluten free bread to the table. Great find!!

Great value and quality for kids
The eclectic menu is satiating in all ways-and the kids menu is a strong value and offers some high quality choices. We tried 2 specials-chipotle shrimp pasta and rainbow trout w/pumpkin butter=both were very good.
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of first choices
The Bank continues its reputation for excellent service AND food. Soups are outstanding and the 'give and take' of the waitstafff makes the whole experience fund. We appreciate the beer selections and server's advice on what's new and good. The grilled calamari is excellent and we're glad to see it is back on the menu. Even when it wasn't, the chef still accommodated our request for grilled. Also like the fact that the menu is built around foods from local producers. Makes just one more reason to go to The Bank.

Oka, so it was a Thursday
Oka, so it was a Thursday night. The place was quiet, had a variety of diners - families, couples, and a group or two. The food was delicious, something for everyone. The wine and beer lists were extensive. Great desserts, too! Our server, Debby, was wonderful!

Exactly What We Were Looking For
One of my friends and I were just looking for a nice, quiet evening out for a much needed girls night. The Bank was the perfect place. Every person on the staff that we encountered was very polite and helpful. Our server was very sweet. He gave a lot of good suggestions from Wine all the way through dessert. The food was mouth-watering delicious and everything hit the spot! Neither of us walked away hungry. I would suggest this place to anyone! The prices weren't all that bad, a little higher than your normal chain restaurants, but everything we ordered was worth the price. They even had a live musician playing guitar and singing. It would be a nice, quaint spot for a date or even a girls night like we did.

family gset together
It was a good experience for our family group of five at a round table booth. Private enough for good conversation, although some noise interference, but not bad. The food was delicious, the service accommodating and pleasant. The only negative thing was that the pot roast was too salty - for the taste buds of both the senior and the teenager.

We had a terrific waiter,
We had a terrific waiter, Matt, who was the perfect balance of attentive and unobtrusive. The food was outstanding, fresh and prepared perfectly. Our first visit here, but we will be back. It is a bit pricey, so for us, it will have to be for a special occasion.

I decided not to cook for
I decided not to cook for Thanksgiving this year (2013) and I had been to the Bank twice before and times the experience was very good. This visit was no exception. The food: excellent. The wait staff was upbeat and friendly. The portions were a good size so we didn't miss out on have leftovers! I may just do this again next year!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding, per usual. Eat
Outstanding, per usual. Eat here several times a year. Had lunch Sunday, right after they opened. Great conversation with staff - always helpful on beer choices. Love that they use local producers for food. Said we really liked the calamari but not breaded - he said no problem, they would grill it and they did. We love it done that way. Squash bisque (just pureed squash and herbs) was outstanding. The creme brulee for dessert is outstanding. It should be on everyone's list - however, don't! I want there to be a place for us and our friends! It can get busy and a bit noisy, but fact that it's an old bank there isn't much to absorb noise. Not annoying. Can you tell? We LIKE it!

We got the best booth in the building- view of everything. Service and food was impeccable. Can't wait to go back - trust the chef's specials!
