Great experience by an enthusiastic staff. Food was creative and interesting. Pleasing visually and to the palate. Would recommend.

A unique experience
I have been to Eryie for lunch, which was delightful, so I wanted to try their Saturday prix fixe menu. It is the first and third Saturday, and you can view the menu on-line before making reservations. I really liked that it it BYOB with no corkage fee AND that since I knew what would be served, I could pair a nice bottle of wine.
It was a "Cinco de Mayo" theme, with tortilla soup, a cilantro-lime avocado and mango salad, and carne asada with quinoa stuffed squash- all presented beautifully and absolutely delicious. Very attentive and friendly staff. The tres leches cake was exceptional. Loved the place!

fabulous first impression
My first visit to Eyrie will not be my last. Outstanding food at a reasonable price. In lieu of tip, a request is made to contribute to the scholarship fund of Robert Morris. Classy.

2ce-monthly dinner=gourmet bargain
This mainly-lunch spot offers dinners the 1st and 3rd Saturdays each month. Dinners are a terrific deal if you don't mind a fixed menu (avaialble months ahead on their website); they accommodate food allergies and aversions if you tell them in advance. At $40 per person for an excellent four-course meal, it's hard to beat. Results at this in-training restaurant speak very well for the Robert Morris instructors--no signs of inexperience in a meal that I find to be right at the sweet spot between traditional and innovative. Service can occasionally be thrown off by non-routine requests a little more than more experienced staff might, but is at just the right level of friendliness and attentiveness. BYO only but no corkage fee. Nice!

The ones acting as servers seemed a bit nervous (one told me it was her first day). The food was a bit bland, but presented well. Always happy to support local culinary students. Green initiatives, so even more commendable.

You get the benefit of high-end dining without that price because the restaurant is a student-run testing ground. The experiments have all been successful every time I've gone.

great addition to the area!
The food and service were very good, modern and healthy. Staffed by culinary students at Robert Morris University, it gives them a great opportunity to interact with customers; nice decor, dishes, salt & pepper shakers, etc.

Have been here for lunch three times but never dinner. It was wonderful, and you can't beat the fact you can bring your own wine. The food was presented beautifully, just the right quantities and the staff very accommodating. We will be back

Nice place, excellent service, able to speak with companions without the din some more noted places have; happy to have found it!

Liked the food, but the ambience
Liked the food, but the ambience was a little lacking. Maybe flowers, table cloths, and/or draperies at the windows would add coziness and also help with the noise level.

Great place to meet in Oak Park
Oak Park was a halfway place to meet friends for the day, and we picked Eyrie after looking at the online menu. We were very happy with our choice and especially liked its association with a university culinary program. Not all the dishes were a hit, but I think the chefs in training did quite a nice job. We all liked the flatbread, with lots of arugula, though we thought it could have used less bacon and a little less blue cheese. The kale salad was nice with the light viniagrette, but I didn't think the roasted grapes added much, and again maybe use a little less bacon. The lamb sandwich had a nice portion of shaved rare lamb but I would have preferred a cheese with horseradish rather than fontina. Great coffee! We'd eat there again.

Great New Spot
This is a brilliant idea for a new restaurant created and run by culinary students of Robert Morris University open only a few months.
II's BYOB, limited menu reasonably priced and everything we tried was fantastic.
Pretty soon you'll have to wait in line for a table

Went here with the family
Went here with the family for my birthday. The food was good. I like that you can bring your own wine. My 12 year old loves to try new foods, so this will b our new spot. The service was a little slow but overall I would recommend. I'm glad I found this place. It truly is a hidden gem.

Food was very good. A little slow, but we knew that going in as it is a "classroom" for the University.
That said we will most definitely return there to enjoy another lunch.
Will try for a dinner on a Friday or Saturday evening.
