Celebrating a special occasion!
I'm a little late leaving this review but my husband and I got married by civil court and we decided we would do a small wedding brunch with our family. I have to say, they catered to our every needs! The staff was great! They gave us a complimentary champagne bottle, which was so unexpected and very thoughtful! It was the ideal place to have our little special occasion celebration. I would go back in a heartbeat just for lunch, brunch, or dinner! The food was amazing and my brother-in-law was really impressed with their wine list. Thank you again Winberies!

Great place - would go again!
Everything was excellent! We're new to Oak Park and are trying out all the restaurants. Winberie's was really nice inside, the service was friendly and prompt, and the food was wonderful. Great for a romantic dinner for two, or to go with friends. Nice bar and drink list, too.

Thank you Winberies Cafe. I set up a lunch meeting to discuss business because I knew the acoustics and ambience would perform well during a busy lunch rush. My company insulated the ceiling with SonaSpray "fc" to correct a previous noise problem. I try to return business to companies that hire my firm. I was in for a surprise becuase I had not had the opprotunity to dine here yet. The service was excellent from the moment we entered the door until the time we left. Our waitress Michelle made some very good recommendations from their menu and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the protions were a good size for the cost. I will use your business to conduct a quality lunch meeting anytime.

Last Tuesday our group of
Last Tuesday our group of retired teachers met for our monthly get together. We had a wonderful time at Winberies. Our lunches (sometimes lasting as long as 3 hours) are rather lengthy because everyone is talking. The waitstaff was wonderful and very aware that all we wanted to do was talk and not be interrupted. They sat us at a round table which made conversation so much easier, gave us our menus and left us alone! When we decided to order, the waitress was quick and efficient. The food (as usual) was delicious and everyone seemed full and satisfied. Had a great time!!

Nice Dining Experience
We were a group of six. Our server was so wonderful that we asked her name, Dorothy Reed. The food was excellent. My tuna was perfectly done, very rare. I have never had a bad meal at Winberie in Oak Park. It's a pleasant restaurant setting with good food, good wine list and it's conducive to being able to sit and visit.

Great experience, we had a
Great experience, we had a mix of appetizers. We had the fish tacos which were very tasty crunchy shell the tuna was seared on the outside and raw in the middle. Also had the crab cake which was delicious with a mustard sauce and cool crunchy salsa. And the dynamite sticks which were also very good, crunchy and the spicy sauce was just right with them. Would definitely go back when we are in the Oak Park area again.

I hadn't been to Winberies in years and comin back reminding me of why I used to frequent the restaurant often - everything was wonderful and it even impressed some "hard to impress" suburbanite friends of mine!

THUS FAR THE BEST!!!
i took my family to this restaurant and it was 7 of us altogether. the entire family loved the food and that has never happened, there has always been 2 or 3 people who complains about the food no being good or the service at other restaurants in the past---but NOT winberie's. ivy was our waitress and she was OUTSTANDING. we got greeted once we entered and received a warm goodbye. i highly recommend this restaurant and i will visit again soon, i traveled all the way from lansing, IL to eat here and loved it. BEST RESTAURANT THUS FAR I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!!!..:)

5 of us had drinks & dinner. Great service, yummy drinks & good food-the meatloaf was comfort food deluxe ! Friends had sea bass, chicken & pasta, bean burger (she said it was juicy & the best she has had in Oak Park). The server brought a martini with 7 olives in it to share. Shared creme brulee for dessert. $30/each.Worth it !!!

While I have dined at Winberie's numerous times, it has been several years since I attended the Sunday brunch. I am happy to report that there has been no decline in either the amount nor the quality of the food. There were numerous breakfast, salad, fruit and lunch choices. The dessert bar was nicely presented and the chocolate fondue a plus. There were also options of eggs benedict and omelets delivered to the table. Our waiter was quite pleasant and accommodating and professional. Dishes were cleared in a timely fashion. I would certainly go back again.,

Great outdoor experience
Had a wonderful lunch. Great menu full of choices. Loved the shaded outdoor area...perfect for a summer day!

Our night out
It was our night away from the kids and Winberies was an excellent choice. The food is always great the ambience was great and even though i am not a big drinker the Sangria was amazing. I highly recommend the dynamite sticks.

What a PERFECT find!
I made reservations through Open Table and arrived before the person I was meeting there, so I sat at the bar. Decent selection of beers on tap. Once seated, we were greeted and each got a great glass of red wine. I ordered their Mac & Cheese - it was HEAVEN. Seriously, It was one of those dishes that was incredible filling, but I didn't want the taste to stop! Reasonably priced, good service, excellent menu options, walking distance from the train and easy parking. Will definitely be going back!

Enjoyed our dinner
We hadn't been to Oak Park in a while, and had enjoyed Winberie's in the past, so decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. My husband had the meatloaf, which was delicious, with great smashed redskins. My daughter had a salad, which she loved. I had two appetizers -- pita chips with artichoke dip and a crab cake. Both were excellent! And the bread is to die for! The only mediocre item was the toll house pie for dessert -- kind of dry.

One of my favorites!
Winberies is my most favorite spot to dine in Oak Park! Whenever I am in that area my daughter always knows we are going there. The food is excellent and I love Sunday brunch! But I really love the server we always ask for, her name is Ivy, it seems she is always working when we dine and she is such a pleasant, energetic, happy , fun and caring person. To have her serve us is such a delight and the topping on my sundae when we experience this gem in Oak Park!

Nice Oak Park location
We met friends who came out on the green line to Oak Park station. It was very easy for them to walk over. The food was great and I was surprised how reasonably priced it was. There were five of us and we all wanted a little somethings sweet to share after the meal. The server suggested the chocolate fondue which was perfect and only $7.00.

Very good restaurant
Dinner with friends....food was delicious, good selection of wines. Very nice ambience, comfortable surroundings. Wait staff very attentive and pleasant. Would definitely go again and recommend to friends.

As good as I'd heard it was!
Although it's been around a long time, I finally made it there - and glad I did. Service was friendly and accommodating. Attentive but not annoyingly constant. And I must adhere to a gluten free diet and this place fits the bill very well. Great menu choices and the food was very delicious. Would definitely go back.
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
It has been a year since eating here and they have new and favorites on the menu. We were a party of 3 and enjoyed the steak frites, tilapia Rockefeller, and shrimp dinner. We all loved our dinners. Service was friendly and well paced. The dinner wine was good. The birthday girl got a complimentary toll house pie with ice cream and a lit candle. The rest of us were full but ordered from the little something desert selection. Loved the chocolate creme brûlée and cup of cappuccino served with chocolate biscotti. The restaurant was busy on a Friday night but we got seated right away with our reservation thru open table.

Nice for lunch
Great place if you want to engage in conversation over lunch as it is not noisy at all. Nice food at a reasonable price.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I met some prospects here for a "discovery" lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. The wait staff was spot on and handled everything very professionally yet with a friendly feel to it. The food was delicious and arrived in a timely matter.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had occasion to visit Winberie's again. It continues to be a great spot to go eat. Food was great!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took family there for a going away party for an uncle and an aunt. Needed to find a pleasant, conversation friendly environment that would provide food interesting enough for the adventurous among the group, but with enough staples to please the American basic element of our crowd. Winberie's fit the bill to a T and was reasonably priced. My wife had the cedar planked salmon; I had the salmon sandwich. Mine was great; my wife's was a little dry but still tasty; our uncle had the burger with bacon and onions and deemed it the best burger he'd ever had. Not where I'd go for a fancy dinner out, nor for a culinary adventure -- just reliable, interesting and tasty food.

Great brunch with friends
Great brunch with friends and they let us stay extra long to seek refuge from the storms that rolled through.

My wife and I had a wonderful time while dining at winberie's. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We will definately be going back.

One of our party of 8 is retiring. Winberie's was a logical choice as it is close by work and known for its good food. I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. On this occasion I had the best chopped salad I have ever had. It was perfectly dressed with a lighter dressing with many interesting chopped vegetables adding color and texture. I honestly didn't think I'd finish it but I ate it all! Others had a hamburger, chicken breast soup and tilapia which all looked very appealing and were presented nicely. Good service too, very attentive but not unctuous.
