Diner Reviews
  • "I tried this restaurant on a recent trip with my wife to Chicago and we had an amazing experience. We ordered a very nice piece of meat for 2, which was perfectly cooked and incredibly tasteful. The service was really professional and we even got a free plate of calamari since it was our first time here. Also the ambience was really nice. Definitely a restaurant to try in Chicago ! "

  • "What a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. Leave the kids at home and enjoy a lovely dinner for two or a small group. From the moment you walk in the service is spot on. The coat check person was so kind and extremely helpful. The waiter, Phil, made sure my birthday dinner was top-notch. Our water glasses were never empty, and our dirty plates and silverware were always taken care of. Phil was extremely helpful with recommendations for dinner and we ordered what he suggested. Could not ask for anything better. I look forward to going back over and over again. The little extras they did to make my day extra special was really special."

  • "We went here to celebrate our engagement. In the reservation notes, I asked if they could do anything to make it special. I didn't have high hopes but was pleasantly surprised. They had a great table for us with a Congratulations card signed by the staff. All the staff we dealt with congratulated us verbally. After our main course they brought out a custom dessert with the words 'Congratulations' made in chocolate and a nice flour free coffee cake and a cheesecake with a candle in, with two complimentary glasses of champagne. Then to round it off the waiter took our picture and presented us with a card with out picture in it as a keepsake. The food was excellent and the waiter knowledgeable and helpful. Can't say enough about this place."

  • "My girlfriend and I were at the restaurant for a belated celebration of her birthday. Our server, Charlet, was the greatest! She was very attentive to our every need and answered ALL our questions about the evening's specials, regular menu selections, as well as the Wine List. She was also VERY personable and pleasant coming often to chat and check on us. The food was exquisite as with the Lombard location which is our usual spot. Once Charlet found out we were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday, she made sure to go the extra mile by decorating our desserts and taking a picture for us to commemorate the evening. Thanks, again Charlet!"

  • "I entertained a party of six and had requested the wine cubby room which the maître de accommodated (very impressed). The service was spot on with over the top service to my guests. I dine at this establishment every year and its never a disappointment. Management always ensures you'll have a perfect dining experience and this was certainly the case. The slice filet was excellent, the lobster bisque soup had lots of lobster pieces and the desserts were amazing especially the coconut cheesecake."

This is a must go to place."

  • "Met at the Grille,, and loved it. We had the isolated booth in the back by the kitchen, so it was GREAT for discussion , As it is semicircle, and away from the general crowd. it would comfortably fit 5 , we had 4. Found Dave great to deal with, and timely in his checks of our table. Could vary the sides a bit more , and many are too starchy, and i think distract a bit from the emphasis, of their wine list and red meat selection . Staff at the front door, was outstanding, and cordial. They were more than on the ball, and i liked their greeting and enthusiasm."

  • "We went for restaurant week and it was a real treat! Restaurant week menu options were great. The filet mignon was perfect. My husband had the tournedos, also perfect. Sides were interesting and very tasty. The add-ons of shrimp or lobster tail were a nice option and a good value, and brought the meal to the next level. Chocolate espresso dessert was heavenly. I can't think of a single negative about the entire evening."

We both got the clam chowder, which was good but nothing to brag about, then we had filets....amazing and cooked to perfect temp. I adding on this lobster tail in a buttered sauce...now that was mind blowing. Completely tasty. And lastly we got the cheesecake and flourless cake for desserts they were very well also. I will totally come back again. Hopefully, next time I'm in town they will have restaurant week again."

This time it was restaurant week, and an elegant three-course meal for $33.00. Very hard to beat that. Superb small filet mignon, with appropriate accouterments, and a delightful small cheesecake dessert. We got a prize table in front that allowed us to sit next to each other on a couch."
