  • "Next time you want to enjoy a great meal and night out with friends or just the two of you give the Turf Room a try!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Service was great, as always. Food never disappoints. The owners care about their customers, and it shows. Martini's are the best anywhere. Treat yourself to a nice night out!"

  • "We've eaten here before, but took some friends who hadn't and they were very impressed. From the generously poured cocktails with the cool and ironic names, to the tasty food, it was a great evening out!"

  • "Wonderful food, service, ambiance.....wood burning fireplace.....very cozy, romantic.....but, if you have allergies (like I do) definitely ask to be seated in the "Wine Room". We're looking forward to summer when they serve on the patio."

  • "First visited in Nov 2013 and loved it. Honestly was a bit disappointed with recent massive menu update. Portions were very small. Many items on the menu had elements that I wasn't sure what they were. I called then menu a bit funky. Atmosphere and customer service remain great. On the loud side but not terrible. Great drinks! Felt it was quite pricey for what we ate."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Although the food was fresh and tasty, the portions were small and overpriced. The room was quite loud and was attached to a OTB, which was not disclosed in their website. Had I known it was an OTB, we probably would not have eaten there."

  • "Only ten minutes away from the Paramount Theater in Aurora, makes this a good pre or post show choice. Nothing else of this caliber in the area. Suggest the back 2 dining rooms if you want to have conversations without the noise competing too much. All menu items and specials were top notch and plan on bringing friends here soon."

  • "I don't get out to fancy places much, and the Turf Room was a great place to go! The martini I ordered had some ingredients that you would think don't go together, but it was delicious! My food was also great, and it got out quickly. I would recommend this place to everyone!"

  • "We went for dinner on a Friday night (date night). It was pretty busy and crowded but it felt more intimate because of the privacy curtains between some of the tables. It was still quite loud though. Drinks were delicious with an extensive choice. Bread was wonderful. Salad and entree were just so-so to me. I had the goat cheese and beet salad with Duck for the main course. The salad was rather bland, the duck was okay; the sauce didn't have a lot of flavor. I liked the tempura mushrooms! The service felt special, so I would go again for that."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal and the service was great. Our only concern is that we had a huge TV right in front of us. That was quite distracting but other than that it was a great dining experience."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "As always, The Turf Room delivered! Our most recent visit was to celebrate my husbands 30th bday. Our table was ready for us right away, next to the fireplace (our favorite). The attention to details and the service provided are the main reasons we love this restaurant so much..... Will return again and again!"

  • "Roaring Fireplace in the main dining room added warmth and ambiance. The wine room where we dined was very cozy and a little quieter than the main room although we loved the music and excitement of the entire restaurant. The food and service were excellent. We are looking forward to dining here again....maybe next week?"

  • "We went to the Turf Room for a late dinner following an afternoon play. The host and the waitress were both very friendly and polite with the several questions that we had. The waitress was able to provide excellent information to help us both make the right decision between the multiple items that looked interesting. The atmosphere is fantastic with the fireplace being our favorite part and the clever design of the bathrooms being second. The food was fantastic. Cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of food per serving: we didn't have leftovers nor did we leave feeling hungry. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Turf Room and, if we didn't live so far away, we would be going back again without hesitation."

  • "My husband and I venture here from Wheaton. It is a great restaurant to hit after going to the Aurora Outlet Mall which is only 6 minutes from there. The food is great, the restaurant is beautiful and the staff is friendly....I would highly recommend!"

  • "We were in town to see Rent and decided to try the Turf Room for dinner. It was absolutely outstanding. We wanted a 4 star restaurant and this was it. I would recommend it to anyone; the food was as good as it gets, comparable to the best in downtown Chicago. The Carpaccio was the best I've ever had; my dining partner had never had it and is now a huge fan. We knew if the starter was that good we were in a for a treat. The martini's shaken at the table was an awesome touch too."

  • "Every single time I come in I wonder if it's really as good as I remember, and every single time I'm still blown away at the quality of the food, it's simply brilliant and it gets better every single time."

  • "My girlfriend and I went there for the first time this weekend and I must say the food and setting were great. The hiccup I thought was the spacing of the appetizer, bread and entree. The bread should be on the table shortly after we sit, the appetizer on the table a little bit after the bread and of course the entree staggered enough so your stomach settles a bit from the appetizer. In our experience the bread was on the table 20 min after we sat and the loaf of bread literally 30 seconds later. Our entrees came out 5 min after that which we felt was not very good. We had to sit our entrees to the side so we could finish our appetizer which should never happen. Great food and I'm sure we'll be back, just on special occasions though."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This was our third time to the Turf Room, which is one of our favorite spots nearby. The ambiance is always good, and the food and drinks are even better. Every course was fantastic, from the appetizer to the main course to the dessert. Will definitely be back."

  • "Was the first time in several years of dining at this restaurant that I was disappointed and did not like our food. For whatever Reason the chef changed preparation on the sea bass which completely ruined it. I will not be ordering that anymore."

  • "Wonderful atmosphere, service was knowledgeable and very helpful, romantic indoor fireplace, our meal was one of the best I have had in a long time and I dine at high end restaurants frequently. We can't wait until our next visit!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of dining at regardless of state or country. the combination of ingredients are unique even in a seemingly simple sandwich for lunch. I had the brie cheese, portobello mushroom, greens, truffle oil sandwich. it is to die for. the lobster bisque was good and the french fries were awesome. the service was, as usual, excellent.I love this place!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Small cozy place. They have great appetizers-lobster corn dogs and calamari. Their flat breads are also very good. They have AMAZING martinis made with fresh ingredients."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "loved the food and the specialty drinks! the atmosphere was a bit odd though ... country western with areas that seemed like a typical bar and areas that were like a nice restaurant. Overall cool place but I prefer a more high end ambiance when I'm dining on food that is higher end."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "On all levels, The Turf Room knocks it out of the park. Great personal service, not overbearing. First rate dishes (the sea bass salad simply perfect). The cocktails are huge. Who could ask for more?"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Such an elegant and beautiful restaurant! Very attentive waitstaff who take their time with you and never rush you. Outstanding food and such an unusual assortment! The entire meal is an adventure and a wonderful treat. We love bringing new people with us just to watch their surprise. Five stars for food. Five stars for service. Five stars for decor/ambiance."

  • "Excellent service and awesome drinks The food was above average but not top notch. Gambling on the ponies in the back was a lot of fun."

  • "This was our third time dining at the Turf Room and always enjoyable. The food is outstanding! You always receive a complimentary chef's tasting before dinner which is always delicious. Love the atmosphere. We dine out at least twice a week and this is quickly becoming a favorite for my husband and I. The Turf Room is for all ages."

  • "My husband and I chose The Turf Room for our anniversary dinner because we had heard such good things from friends. Our experience was no different than what we had heard! I let them know it was our anniversary when I made the reservation, and when we were seated, there was a candle at our table along with two complimentary glasses of champagne waiting for us! We were also seated in the back of the restaurant, at a table surrounded by thick curtains on three sides. It was so quiet and romantic, something we have never had before at a nice restaurant like this!! The service was also outstanding, aside from our server being a little slow to return a couple of times...but that didn't matter much to us. The food was absolutely outstanding, too!"

  • "First visit and will not be the last. A little on the pricey side but still a great time. Had Saturday 7:30 PM reservations - had a 20 minute wait at the bar - seated in the wine room, very nice."

  • "I've been to the Turf Room many times. It is one of my favorite restaurants due to ambiance as well as the creative combinations of flavors and foods put into each beverage, appetizer, main course and dessert. The menu reads perfectly for foodies who enjoy the usual made in unusual ways as well as completely new ideas. The seafood, braised short ribs, meat-stuffed pork chop, butternut squash ravioli, calamari salad are all outstanding, and they always come with amazingly unique and delicious sides. But, you might want to go to this restaurant just for the amazingly fresh and unique martini's and the maple bacon ice cream over chocolate waffles. Service is outstanding, but plan to eat slowly and savor!"
