    We came to Winberie's to celebrate our mother's birthday. Every aspect of our experience was wonderful. They have really stepped up their game on specials. We were told that they recently hired a new chef. His style seems to be very creative and modern. And the "little something" desserts were great too. Would return again and again.

    I've been going to Winberie's Cafe for over 15 years. It is my "go-to" spot for any occasion but especially for my business meetings. The staff is delightful - from the time you walk in the door and throughout your dining experience. The food is great and very reasonable. It's an attractive venue , pleasant music (at a reasonable level for folk to hold conversation) and just all-around comfortable environment. Also, it's centrally located in beautiful Oak Park - what's not to like in Oak Park? I highly recommend Winberie's. It has been and continues to be a wonderful and delightful gem in the heart of Oak Park.

    Pleasant dinner at Winberie's. Good, not amazing. Our server was very nice but a little green, i.e. brought coffee, had to ask for cream, then had to ask for a spoon, then had to ask for sugar. One salad came without the dressing as requested. The other came drenched with dressing despite a request for dressing on the side.

    Sunday is an all you can eat brunch, but I chose the restaurant given their gluten free menu. They were very accommodating and allowed me to order off the menu although they said everything wouldn't be available as the kitchen wasn't prepped for the day given the brunch. I appreciated their flexibility and would definitely return if I'm int he area

    Wherever we move (and we move a lot), we look for that go to restaurant, and Winberie's earned that spot here in Oak Park. The server was friendly and attentive. The menu has a good selection, but not too crowded, and there are daily specials. Even the ordinary food, like mac and cheese, was extraordinary. Portions are generous, but not so much we needed doggie bags. I look forward to many more family meals at Winberie's.

    We'd never been here but decided to check it out for a last-minute birthday dinner. The staff was amazing. Not overly attentive but there when you needed them. The food was beyond delicious and the prices were very reasonable. The banana cream pie was one of the best desserts I've had in awhile - it was a mini-pie, not just a slice! Definitely a neighborhood gem and worth the drive if you're not in the area.

    Recently, we reserved a table for 7 for a Friday night. Our party included children with food allergies. The service was the best I have ever experienced. Attentive but not distracting and wonderfully helpful in regard to the food allergies. At all times we felt that the server was doing her best to ensure we had a wonderful evening with our friends.

    On Sunday I had to host a family group (13 people) who were meeting in area for special occasion. Winberie provided a delightful place for Brunch. A Buffet was served with diverse and ample array of great food to suit all palates. The Manager Dave who was covering for Gary was most helpful. The waitress Julie provided great service. Nice atmosphere, good food, and care. A real Home feeling

    First time for us. We met two other couples there and our group was well taken care of. Had a reservation - no waiting. Good food, very good service and great atmosphere. And best of all it was quiet enough that we could sit and visit without having to yell across the table. Other than parking being a little problematic it was great and we would definitely return.

    Winberie's never fails for its good food and great service. This experience was no exception. Separate checks take all the stress out of group dining at Winberie's. Taking large or small groups to Winberie's makes good dining easy. The waitress was very efficient - not overly solicitous, but consistent. The wide range of food options (I'm vegetarian.) makes selective dining easy too. I dine regularly at Winberie's and will continue to do so. I even changed my reservation to arrive 30 minutes earlier than planned. All went well!

    Decent restaurant near the Pleasant Home historic house and grounds. We had a chicken pasta dish. My wife was disappointed in the quality of the chicken breast. We showed the waitress. She apologized and was pleased we brought it to their attention. They offered additional chicken which we did not expect and did not accept. They did comp my wife's dessert.

    Brunch offerings were plentiful, however, the food was lackluster, at best. Scrambled eggs weren't seasoned; breakfast sausage and bacon were tasteless. Egg (one) Benedict was just okay. Sliced roast beef in au jus, on the other hand, was very good. Didn't try the waffles or french toast, so I can't comment. They were very crowded and the noise level was high. Service was hit and miss, although to be fair, there were two waitresses handling several tables. All in all, value for the money spent ($20/person) was acceptable. We've eaten at Winberies before, but after experiencing brunch, I don't think we'll do that again.

    We've been here several times and usually enjoy both the food and prompt service, but on this particular visit, our waitress was very rude, loud and inappropriate. She spoke to us and asked us questions that just.....you don't. A huge turn off. I don't know if it was a cultural thing (she had a thick Southern accent) but she didn't listen to a lot that we said, hovered over us when she wanted our plates, and left several small dirty appetizer plates on the table all night (I was about to take one to the hostess when we finally left). Just left a very, VERY bad taste in our mouth.

The food is fine -- not spectacular, but no real misses either. A nice touch was their response to one of our guests wanting fondue (not on the menu) and providing a really nice spread.

    This is a good, popular, standard, stand-by restaurant. Food is well prepared and the wine list offers good choices. The service is usually more attentive - it wasn't unfriendly, but there was something "off" compared to my many other visits - it seemed odd to have the bill envelope plunked down without a word on her way past the table, no one had done that to us before.
