    I go to this restaurant every year on my birthday, and I have never been disappointed. I know this sounds crazy, but I LOVE their glazed carrots! I look forward to them every year! Their WCG salad is awesome. I loved my martini (orange vodka with other citrus juices...I think it was called a Vitamin C martini.) Their egg rolls are my favorite appetizer. Their portions are just right. I had a bleu cheese crusted filet which was delicious. The white chocolate brownie was out of this world! Virgil, our server, was awesome. A wonderful night. I'm looking forward to returning next year for my birthday!

    The ambiance was lively in the bar area. But we requested a table rather than a booth, so we were in a nondescript room. That was okay, since we were able to talk and hear one another with no problem. The food was good, but overpriced for what it was. It was not great, and we have had better food at lower prices in other restaurants. The service was good.

    Heard great things even about how was good for gluten-free folks. I have to say was unimpressed. The booth I was at near the bar was also a common drink holder for those waiting for their tables. The gluten-free was just normal menu items less whatever the offending thing was, there was not any attempt to create something that works there. The tomato and gin soup was good but the rest was just OK and nothing more. Couple that with the incredibly loud atmosphere and you have an experience that isn't worth repeating.

    We've dined here several times. The food is very good but the service has never been more than mediocre. Not bad, just not memorable. Very noisy. And the most annoying thing: every time we've gone to WCG we made a reservation through Open Table and every time we were made to wait even though many tables were visibly available.

    The menu has just the right number of selections, and everything we had was very good. The service is what really sold the place. We had an early dinner so it wasn't very busy, but at some places that gives the staff an excuse to slack off. Not here. I can't remember the last time I was as impressed with the service staff at a restaurant, outside of Gibson's in Chicago.

    The reservation process was wonderful and I was seated immediately even though many people were waiting without reservations. Restaurant was very noisy and didn't seem like a good place for anything romantic or for conversations. Food was unusual.....I had prime rib and it was served with the bone attached, a HUGE bone! I could not figure out what part of the meat attached to the bone was edible. The service was average to slow. It was the first time there and I don't think I will go back. It was also quite pricy

    After hearing so much about this place, I was excited to try it. While the building and decor have a modern/lodge feel, the food was nothing special. Everything I tried tasted OK and the average consumer, will like this place. However, for someone that has eaten at many outstanding restaurants, nothing that blew me away enough that I could really recommend to a friend. Service, however, was good and different people kept stopping by our table to make sure we had everything we needed. I always appreciate good service. However, the food here is forgettable and more like white noise than anything as delectable as white chocolate.

    My niece and I needed some quality time to catch up - White Chocolate was the perfect spot early on a Sunday afternoon. We never felt rushed, which was spectacular - the slight downside, we did feel a bit neglected by the server. I recognize there is a "dance" that all servers have to do, but it would have been better if the server popped by a little more often. Food was great - I had the shaved turkey sandwich with mushroom gravy - way tasty!

    My daughter recommended White Chocolate Grill. I treated my son and daughter in law to celebrate her birthday. the service was outstanding, food was excellent. My son commented the high bar stool chair felt out of place for him, but seemed to fit the table well. I enjoyed the experience so much so I purchased a gift certificate for a friend.

    We have been coming for years but find your sandwiches and salads prices are rising. The fish is too pricey or should offer at least 2 sides for the price. Love the desserts. Will still come in the future but maybe once or twice a year. We were in the side room next to the hostess stand and it was very noisy. In general, it can be very noisy.

    Whenever I visit Naperville I make sure to stop in for a meal. No other salad on the planet can do this for me but the WCG salad is that good. No one at the table complained of their food, they were too busy eating it up. Also, the server was excellent. He kept our water and Iced Tea topped off and was patient as we waited for our third member of our party.

    My mother and I like to have lunch at White Chocolate when we spend the day shopping. This is her favorite restaurant because she LOVES the chicken crepes with a Madeira and mushroom sauce with mashed potatoes! I had the grilled chicken with the same sauce on the side and the couscous, which was very good. Our food was very good, our server was attentive, making sure we had water and anything else we needed. This is a very nice restaurant. You can go casual or I would recommend business casual in the evening. They have a very nice bar area, so if you're looking for a place to meet friends, this may be the place to go. Overall, our experience was very nice and we will certainly return.

    Whether you make reservations via phone or open table, you will almost have to wait at least 20-30 minutes after you check in. The manager was very apologetic regarding this issue, however that issue needs to be worked on. We still frequent this restaurant and need to either go earlier before dinner hour or after the rush to avoid the long wait with or without reservations.

    My fiance and I went for our 5yr anniversary. I love the ambiance. The dim lighting made it relaxing. The food was good but the portion of the mashed potatoes could have been bigger. My fiance had the new York strip and was still hungry afterwards. Now for someone like me who needs portion control the potatoes were the perfect amount. The best part was the dessert, we shared the white chocolate brownie & it was to die for!!!! The steaks were really good but a bit on the pricey side.

    We went on a rainy day so it wasn't crowded and were seated right away. We were there to have lunch with my niece who was leaving for college the next day. The waitress shared her college experience and was very positive and fun. Our lunch entrees were all delicious and we had enough to take some home. We shared the White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake for dessert and it was huge and wonderful. Usually I don't like a lot of "stuff" on my cheesecake but the combo of raspberry, white chocolate crumbles and a little caramel all blended with the creamy cheesecake making it extra yummy! It was a real treat and a great sendoff for my niece!

    Our experience began with stale tortilla chips with our appetizers. Our steaks were dismal. This is NOT a steakhouse. Frugal portions. Poor presentation. Average quality beef. Very high price: $29 for a meager portion. I've had better Choice cut steaks from Costco or BJs that I cooked myself. Overall, a very poor value. White Chocolate Grill should be embarrassed. I've eaten at exceedingly better steakhouses in the Chicago area. White Chocolate Grill isn't in the same league. The only thing worthwhile at this restaurant is the desserts. Excellent desserts - especially if you like white chocolate. generous portions. Great place for late night dessert and coffee.

    The dining room has a low ceiling and no divider walls. It was very loud for a dinner restaurant. The food was good, the service as well, but the presentation was poor at best. The dinnerware used for our 30.00 entrees is more often seen at a pancake house where a 5.99 breakfast is served. Overall food presentation needs an upgrade.

    Again - a wonderful dining experience. We are rarely disappointed at WCG. We are somewhat "regulars", dining here about once per month. Food taste, quality, and friendly/professional service are consistently excellent. Can certainly recommend the filet mignon salad, the rotisserie chicken (with good gravy) and the steaks. The women loved the salmon.
