    TL's has a great mix of Chinese and Japanese food. Sushi is always fresh and portions are good size. Offerings from the Chinese side of the menu are always tasty and spiced to request (mild/hot). Service has always been top notch. My only real issue is they are pricey. A dinner for five - two adults, three kids and no alcohol - can run you $150 with tip if you do the Sushi Dinner for Two and a handful of Chinese entrees.

    Have eaten here many times, but this visit was very disappointing. Food was subpar, several pieces of chicken so disgusting I had to spit them out. They were inedible. Our early dinner included my 4 children. Inappropriate that the bartender was watching MTV for an hour right next to my table with displays of violence and inappropriate sexuality for us to see. Didn't want to make a scene while celebrating my wife's birthday and draw more attention to the TV so I tried to keep them distracted. Restaurant should be more in touch with what it is showing on TV. Also, we were seated between another large party and the take out staging area, while most of the restaurant was empty. Don't stack patrons on top of each other if you have a choice.

    Not quite happy with service received this visit. Starting with arrival, not sure if host even pulled our reservation up via open table. Waiter took our orders and brought our food out. Later came back and ask what soup we would like? I figured if you ordered Japanese food would it not be miso soup but we were given options for hot and sour, egg drop soup. After waiter brought our food we had to ask for our rice to eat with our teriyaki chicken. Instead of bringing individual bowls of rice waiter brought a big bowl of rice to serve as family style. No bowls or plates given to put our rice. Had to put rice in our bento box with our chicken to eat.

    First, I want to say the Open Table App is great and so easy to use. I have made reservations through the App about 3 times without any problems. I strongly recommend getting the App! Second, TL's is such a great restaurant. My family can be loud and demanding sometimes and the TL staff has been nothing but courteous and nice to us. They provide excellent service. In addition, the food is DELICIOUS! The sushi - the entrees - everything ... SO GOOD!

    we were not impressed upon entering the restaurant. both doors were wide open with a line of people so we were cold as well as those inside. upon arriving to the entry, we noticed that most of the people were picking up food. it would have been nice to have been able to check in and then move out of the way to wait for our table. when we did check in, the hostess did not see our reservation initially and then seemed to find it. even though we had a reservation, she sat two other tables before us. the hostess was not very pleasant. the bartender was very accommodating and the drinks were good. we sat after a short wait. the waiter was nice and the food came very quickly. the servings were large and the food was average and saucy.

    I thoroughly enjoy TL's and as a local we visit here quite frequently. On a recent Friday night with a party of five girls, we did feel a bit rushed even though we were drinking cocktails and the dining room was not jam packed. TL's wait staff can be hit or miss and this particular night was a bit of a miss. Jeff, the bartender, is fabulous! And the food makes mouths happy. I will continue to visit, but probably more with just my husband while we dine at the bar.

    Had reservations through Opentable for 9 people. When we walked in and stated we had reservations, the staff looked surprised. They didn't even look to see if there actually WAS a reservation nor ask the name. Seriously? Ordered appetizers, sushi, and lunch entrees. I was the first person to order my entree and didn't receive it until everyone finished their food. I had to say something to the server and he looked at me as if I had never ordered my meal. However other people seated next me confirmed that I DID order my dish.

    Dined on 2/28/2014
    I love their food! My adult children love their very fresh sushi! Now for the one big con, the service and waitstaff are not on par with their food. I have never once had a waiter that was not aloof and seemingly uncaring. There is no smile or greeting, they basically just walk up to your table with a totally blank stare and wait for you to order something. I understand that there may be a difference in culture so maybe that is what Is occurring. Also you have to ask for refills of soda or ice tea, they never approach you asking if you need anything.

    The vibe you get when you walk thru the door is total indifference. We were met with blank stares from the bartender and the hostess that made me a bit uncomfortable. Too late to turn back and after reading the reviews that the food was great I just brushed it off. Service was ok and so was the food. By ok I mean one step below good deeming it edible. Started with egg drop soup which was flavorless then we shared the Mongolian Beef. That again was just ok. Make the trip to their sister restaurant 8000 Miles. It is 10,000 miles better than this place in both food, service and ambiance.

    TL's Four Seasons is one of the best sushi places. The service is always outstanding - servers will take the time to explain the menu, offer suggestions/recommendations (especially if you have never been there before or if you are trying sushi for the first time), and are quick to replenish drinks and bring orders out. All I have ever ordered was sushi (and it was great), but I've been told by non-sushi eating friends that those menu items were good. I usually go for the lunch special, but have dined for dinner as well. I would make a reservation seeing as I have always had to wait for a table during the dinner rush on a Friday or Saturday night. Overall, I would hands down recommend this place. Food is good and prices are not high.

    Nine of us enjoyed a relaxing evening at TL's Four Seasons. The menu was varied enough for everyone to order the food they enjoy. The portions were good, the food was delicious and the presentation nicely done. The service was excellent and their accommodations for our group were good. We will definitely be returning.

    We call TL's our "Bartlett secret" and go there for special occasions. We had dinner on a snowy New Year's Day. We chose mainly Chinese food, but our fellow diners tended toward sushi. Every dish was tastefully presented and well worth a short wait. TL's wine list is not huge but offers excellent whites and reds to pair with any dish.

    We have been coming to TL's for several years and it never disappoints. The sushi is always fresh. This time we tried a mushroom and scallop appetizer and were really happy with it. I will definitely order that again. Parking in front can be tough to find but the Metra lot is nearby and you can park there for free in the evenings.

    My husband and I tried TL's for our mid-week anniversary. Despite the weather being cold and not a great night to be out, TL's was well attended (unlike another restaurant down the street which had no patrons). Except for the miso soup which was a little bland and only lukewarm, the sushi and sashimi we had were very fresh and the portions were large compared to similar places we've been. Our server seemed a little scattered: I had to remind him that a salad came with the meal. We would go back and want to try TL's for lunch.

    This restaurant was suggested to me by a friend as I was meeting someone in the Bartlett area. Generally, due to food sensitivities, I do not go to restaurants serving primarily Asian food. I was assured that I would enjoy this one. Their menu is quite extensive with many exciting offerings. Our meal was excellent and I was able to try numerous items. The ambience of the restaurant is really pleasing. Our waiter was really a nice gentleman, I just wish we could have communicated better. There was a slight language barrier, but it did somewhat add to the experience. I will definitely be going back soon.

    We had a 2 1/2 year old with us who ended up spilling water out of the glass because there were no kid cups and I forgot to bring one with. We mentioned this to the server and came back with a homemade kids cup out of a to-go soup cup with slits on the top. Food was fast to come out and yummy. Will be adding this to our list of restaurants we frequent.
