    Really dissapointing. This place used to be great. Service was inattentive at best, neglectful much of the time. We had a reservation. Restaurant was almost empty, but we had to wait for everything -- to be seated, order taken, food to come, boxes, check, pick up the payment. We were not told about a "special menu" until we tried to order off the menus provided when we told that all sides were mashed potatoes and veg. We were not offered the "special menu" (saw a buffet being broken down on the way out). The food was adequate. Edible, but not what I would have expected. The the cheese on the mac and cheese tasted like nacho cheese that should have been on chips. The mashed potatoes were cold (suspect they had been sitting on that buffet). We had to ask for boxes twice, beg for the check and for them to take the payment.

    I’m extremely dissatisfied with this place. It is not a restaurant!!! It is the hotel buffet trying to oversell themselves as fine dining. We spent $400 for 5 people. There was no gluten free options as I was told over the phone. Dishes were not restocked salad bar was neglected. We don’t even spend this much at Fogo de chao! Also since we used our card to book on open table we were told we could not cancel without a charge. We walked the buffet and wanted to leave after realizing we were catfished.

    We very much enjoyed our brunch on Mother"s Day. the food was very good, and our server was excellent! We also really love the table we have had for several years now. It looks out at a lovely fountain on the grounds.

    Ce here for Mother's day brunch. Everything was great from the moment we walked in. Greeted by friendly staff and seated right away. Food was amazing as well. Lots of different options and everything tastes good. Took advantage of the bottomless Mimosas.

    I was there at 1:30 PM . The food tasted like it sat around a long time . It was not fresh at all. Bacon was hard and cold . Sausage was dry and cold . Cesar salad was very wilted and soggy. Lot’s of the entries were cold . I spent a lot of money for a parry of 3 . But the meal was not worth what I paid .

    The Easter buffet was overpriced, food was just average and the additional costs to use a credit card was ridiculous! Never will eat there again.

    We came to Algauer's for an early Easter dinner but was shocked to find the entire restaurant only had 2 couples eating. Sat down and overheard one of the couple's send the food back because it was overcooked and inedible. We got drinks (pretty weak ones), slowly, which was amazing given no one was in the restaurant and decided that we weren't going to risk being disappointed at this price point. Settled up after the drinks and left for Hugo's in DesPlaines (which, as usual, was excellent). Don't know what is going on with Algauer's, but I'd think long and hard about going there.

    The entire restaurant was open. 50 tables open. I was on a date and they put the only other 3 tables right next to us. Don’t understand why anyone would do that.
