    To start the evening, there was a wedding reception upstairs which is open and the noise level comes right into the restaurant, we were seated right next to the piano which we could hear fine and he did a great job, but were so distracted by the noise level above. Not that we had a problem with the music they were playing at the reception, it's from our generation, but not what you want to hear when you're trying to have a relaxing dinner/weekend. They have double doors at the restaurant entrance but they left them open; little details that made our dinner a little frustrating. The service is slow, mainly for the waitress to get to the table and then bring us our drinks. We had to send our Maple Bourbon Old Fashioneds back since they tasted like the bartender forgot the bourbon. -An old fashioned, c'mon, it's 90% bourbon in there, or supposed to be. Second one came out fine. The dry aged steak I ordered was predominantly tough and chewy, some sections were really nice but, this is an expensive cut of meat and I could only tolerate about half of it. Dessert and the martini's we had with it were the best part. The atmosphere was good but we thought it could've been a little more "decked out" for the holiday season. My wife used to frequent the Abbey before the pandemic and loved everything about it. She was really disappointed this time. We're both really hoping the resort and 240 West get back to a higher standard; like a lot of places, the pandemic seems to have lowered the quality of what some of these places once were. Side note: Sunday Brunch the next morning at 240 West was really good!

    My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience! The food was fantastic. We both ordered rare steaks (the bone-in New York) and they were perfectly cooked which is not very common when we order them that way. In fact, he said it was probably the best steak he ever had. We had the yukon mashed potatoes, asparagus and baked onion soup all of which were excellent. The creme brulee was a wonderful addition to celebrate our anniversary. The staff was very attentive and the gentleman playing piano was very talented. We will definitely be back.

    Hit or miss on the dishes, but flavor when they hit. Chicken in the Chicken & Pomegranate Gnocchi was a bit dry, but the gnocchi and sauce were INCREDIBLE! Prime rib was cold and the broccoli and other vegetables had seen better days. The Old Fashioned and wine selection were fantastic.

    I was seeking a place to enjoy a nice Prime Rib dinner. 240 West advertises their Saturday night special. From service to food it was not enjoyable. We were never asked if we wanted another drink after our first beverages sat empty during dinner. I asked for my Prime Rib to be Medium Rare, it came out to me gray and cold. We were never asked about our entries during our meal. Overall I was not impressed with my meal or service. I did not have an opportunity to inform anyone, because no one checked on us.

    Ambience is nice, live piano player on-site and good views of the harbor. Service was substandard, we were given rock-hard butter, server acknowledged they ran out of softened butter, why not soften this under a heat lamp or microwave before bringing it to us? When ordering we were not asked if we wanted a soup or salad with our entrees. Had to ask the server as she was walking away, too busy to even properly take our order. Food was average. Overpriced as expected for an on-premise resort restaurant. Overall, the convenience of the location and ambience make a decent choice when staying at the Abbey Resort.

    The ambiance and service were excellent at this Abbey Resort restaurant. We had a window table and thus a lovely view of the spectacular Fall scenery outdoors. We started off with an onion soup which was very tasty, the broth was just perfect and the amount of cheese plenty. We then ordered the salmon and the blackened cod. The salmon was exquisite, and I would order it again in a heartbeat, however the cod was just so, so. We were also not impressed with the sides and the bourbon sauce was just very, very thin. We do look forward to our next Abbey Resort visit and dining there again.

    We enjoyed each other’s company and most of the food was good but the dinner took over two hours for 4 of us. I think there were only 2 or 3 servers. Although the restaurant was mostly empty they sat all the tables close together. They could have skipped every other table to be more Covid friendly. My fillet was delicious but others said their salmon was bland.

    Service was excellent as it typically has been. The steak and lobster Friday night special is a great value at $49 but the lobster was cold and undercooked. The shrimp cocktail was excellent. The French onion soup, which is typically fantastic, was overly oil ladened. Overall the food is average, the service and ambiance are excellent.

    They charge $8 for Kraft Mac and cheese for kids. We ordered the charcuterie and fromage tray which came with canned mushrooms and a solid ball of mozzarella that looks like it just got dumped out of the package. Hardly any meat, all of 4 crackers, and nothing interesting like sauces, pickles, etc. For being in the cheese state, I was hopeful to get some really great cheese. But this was disappointing as a whole experience. The only saving grace was the old fashioned but it’s not enough for me to return. I almost asked for a refund for the meal.

    Our hostess and waiter were wonderful, unfortunately our meals were Sub standard. The short ribs had no flavor and weren't prepared properly and the chicken had an odd texture and the gnocchi was over cooked. we had to send the burnt creme Brulee back. we were so hoping it would be good because we like the Abbey.

    We have loved going to 240 West for years. We were the only table in there and was having a nice time, until all the law students from University of Chicago started parading through and disturbing most of the dinner. We had such a terrible time that we didn't have dessert and went home to have ice cream back in Chicago. Nothing was offered after I mentioned something. No one asked the students to take a different route in the restaurant (which was completely empty) so they don't disturb paying customers enjoying the view and food. Disappointing and we will consider going to a different restaurant next time we visit The Abbey Resort.

    Anniversary dinner meh…. Emma was an amazing server, very sweet. The food was forced. Trying to be high end but lacking. The risotto was not good-thick sticky overcooked mess, steaks were cooked well but as a frequent restaurant goer from Chicago, they were Ruth Chris pricing with average quality. The older lady who met us at the door appeared annoyed by our presence. When I placed the reservation I said it was our 26 year anniversary. The women who seated us never even looked at the reservation until after we were walking out the door. Then said, was it your anniversary? For $250 bill I’ll stick with Chicago area restaurants. It’s a shame because the Abbey is a great resort but needs to revamp this menu. Drop the average price to 25-50, shrink the giant meat options and go for quality. Don’t over sell what you can’t deliver.

    Service was very good. Food was only okay. Rice was weird. Steak was incredibly salty. Cod serving was minuscule and a major ripoff. Pappardelle was only average. Chicken was very good. Nobody at our table finished their plate. 240 West is trying to be upscale when it isn't. Just like The Abbey, it appears great but in reality leaves a lot to be desired.
