Allgauer's Restaurant - Doubletree Hotel Ratings and Reviews
We went to the restaurant for Thanksgiving. We had the last appointment time. It was a little early when we arrived, and we were seated immediately. The food was good. There was only one thing that I would like to mention. When we arrived, I asked the hostess if the tip was included in the price of the buffet. She said it was. When we got the check, it was not included but the tip was added to the bill. The hostess may have misunderstood what I was asking.
We have been to this restaurant in the past and had a better experience then. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly - the issue is more about the kitchen. Had my taste buds set on a med rare prime rib and my husband on the risotto. The kitchen had neither. It was explained they were out or never had risotto (can remember which) and they overcooked the prime rib so it was more on the well side. What are the chances of 2 dishes not being available? Again, this was a kitchen issue, not a server problem. She felt bad and comped a round of drinks. Ended up with a watered down tomato sauce pasta dish. Probably will not return.
If you have a special occasion to celebrate, you won't be disappointed with the food or the service. My birthday celebration was made all the more special by the warm greeting of the hostess when we arrived, the attentive service of our waiter (Jose), and the never-disappointing, excellent menu items (my choice was the prime rib)!
We can never say enough about this restaurant. We love the staff, from Liz their hostess, to Juan the overall all around guy! They always have our table ready, the wait staff is great and attentive to our every desire! Best NY Strip in town, The Ahi Tuna is delicious, what can I say, the Jambalaya - WOW, their soup is always exceptional, down to the dessert selections which are all just" out of this world".
I went on Friday fish fry. It was cod fried fresh or baked and brought to your table in a fish stick style but it was okay for $13. The first order came with fries, if you wanted some with your next order of cod you have to pay. There was an unlimited salad bar and THE BEST broccoli soup beside my own. Pretzel rolls was at the salad bar also. My waitress had a problem understanding me. I attend MANY buffets and she didnt come and check on the table. I always had to stop her as she was walking pass. They should hire people with waitress experience, not just customer service. I will return for the soup alone.
We had lake perch which was tasteless, boiled potatoes were very starchy tasting, sent the veggies back for carrots, cherry pie was the worst I ever had! I wouldn't feed the pie to a dog, it was so bad! The cherry filling was hard and jel like, not individual cherries. Just weird.
11/6 visit was disappointing - the manager Ron exceeded any expectation when our suggested seating in our Open Table reservation was not honored. Server forgot to bring our salads, meat was undercooked and very tasteless. Iced tea was refilled only upon 1 request, dessert was not suggested. Long wait times for any follow up service. My Allgauers card was not returned. I informed Dianna she was not her usual top notch server - she did not respond. I did not feel compelled to leave the mandatory 18% gratuity.
We choose Allgauers for special occasions and almost always does not disappoint. It may be the restaurant is not the most important aspect of the hotel.
Once again another great dinner from this restaurant. Allgauer's is a hidden gem tucked away in the Doubletree Hotel. I usually order their prime rib but this time I tried the ribeye. Great choice on my part. Seasoned and cooked perfectly. It was my birthday so my dinner was free when a second dinner was ordered. Allgauer's is a great place to go for a nice quiet dinner.
We needed a place in the area to get together for dinner,as my 101 year old uncle passed and wanted a quit , reasonable place to gather .
most of us had the Cod all you can eat special , kinda dry. Salad bar was good and the waitress was friendly .
I would go back and recommend it , my wife would recommend it but probably not go back for a normal dinner evening , but wouldn't go to Applebees either.
I love this place. It has a downtown Chicago feel to it, but right in my backyard. Located right off I-294, it is easy to find and just a quick drive. The cuisine is excellent and the decor is so inviting! I had the sweet & sour short ribs with spinach and horseradish mashed potatoes. The ribs were so tender and delicious. The spanish was cooked to perfection as well as the potatoes. You must try the cream of potato soup. They didn't have when I visited, but is absolutely scrumptious!
As much as I enjoy dining at Allgauers, it could even be better if they would reward the 1000 points that Open table claims this restaurant to be. They claim that if a reservation is made between 5-6pm any day of the week, you will be credited 1000 points. However, when you make the reservation during this time slot , it is rare that the little red box with a plus sign appears. I don't know if this is an Open Table problem or an Allgauer's problem! I have contacted Open Table but there only solution is to go on the community blog to see if anyone else is experiencing the same problem. Come on!.....someone needs to get their act together!!
They nailed it with the mashed potatoes though! .I ordered the Prime Rib and when I got it, I have never seen prime have the color it did. It was like a white kinda pink, not medium rare like I asked for. Almost as if it was soaked in water or something. Breakfast wasn't that good either. Bacon and fruit was great.
Thought we would try the Easter Brunch but were not impressed. The food was luke warm when you got it and cold when you started eating it. The food was ok nothing special and the wait staff had to be asked repeatedly to bring us coffee, water, etc. They needed more wait staff.
Everything was great -- food, had the prime rib special, service (waiter very attentive --made my drink, Hypnotic Martini, which is typically not on the drink list and usually not available), and a birthday meal is free with id proof of age and the purchase of two other meal entrees (this was honored as well). My concern, however, was the addition of the gratuity for a party of 3 when the sign at the hostess desk says it is added for parties of 4 or more? The reason sighted was the birthday meal? Also, the hostess came over after we had paid to kindly remind us that our server left early??? A strong hint to leave in an all but empty restaurant (we had an early reservation 5:00 p.m.) The point-- I ate at Ruth's Chris the night before the check was $200 and no gratuity was added in. The tip of $45 was graciously and gratefully given for excellent food and service. In short this waiter would have received more, a $20 tip, versus the $11.83 added to our bill prematurely. My friend who paid for my birthday dinner was kind enough to add $5 extra in cash for the waiter's tip. Morale of the story-- don't assume the diner of color who requests the birthday promotion will not tip you or will tip you poorly. This incident reminded of why I don't go to the restaurant often even though it is near my home. However, if you love prime rib do go there on Sunday between 5-9 pm for the Prime Rib Special. The food is good and the price is right. The tip??? that's your call and hopefully the hostess won't rush you out of a partially empty restaurant.
