OpenTable Diner (Chicago)
3.0  Dined 6 days ago

Was looking forward to this dinner. Given the reviews, we really thought it would be special. While the service (and our server) was excellent, our table was unusual by any standard, and the food was good but not great. So the good news is the service here is fabulous. Caring, attentive, and professional....every person we encountered was doing a first class job. That’s the good is the “meh”part. I made a mistake of not asking for a window table. This put us into a weird two person table directly at the entrance of the restaurant. It’s a very weird table.....where you feel on display and have to deal with every person popping their nose into the feel like you are half in and half out of the restaurant. A good lesson for me, to always ask for window....a poor choice to place a table..... Next was the food and dessert. It just wasn’t prepared husbands seared tuna was basically sashimi. While we love sashimi, he ordered seared tuna. Tuna was very high quality...however....some areas were not seared at all, and some had such a low sear, that it basically wasn’t done properly. My snapper was cold and dry. And the potato round it was on was unflavored, and very dense. For a restaurant with these ratings, to me it was surprisingly poor kitchen execution. Then came dessert. They clearly have a freeze thaw issue with their freezers. The crunchy crystals in the ice cream are a classic indicator of a poorly functioning freezer. I did mention this to our server....she thanked me for my input. So overall, it was a good, but not great evening.

Phenomenal. Went for the first time for my husband’s birthday. We had reservations and were seated right away. Customer service was exceptional. Food left us speechless; quality of ingredients were fresh, flavor hit the spot, beautiful presentation, good sized portions for fine dining establishment. Overall executed perfectly. We ordered a bottle of Malbec, Kung Pao Shrimp appetizer, Grouper Vince, the Beach Walk Filet, Banana Cream Pie, and the Cheesecake of the Day (butterfinger). They even put a candle in my husband’s desert for the occasion. We were so pleased with our experience and will definitely return and recommend to others. Reservations highly recommended as they seem booked and have an intimate space.

A lovely restaurant, especially for a special occasion. The food is delicious and the atmosphere just right. Our service was a little off this one time, but we loved having leftovers taken on to your valeted car !

Great freshly prepared and tasty food. Second year in a row going to dinner here on a Groupon (what a deal!) between Christmas and New Year’s during our Holiday beach visit. Excellent all the way around from the soups to the salads to the the fish entrees. Highly recommended and we will be back during our next beach visit!

Have been coming to Henderson Park Inn for a number of years and it is always special. The inn is always perfectly decorated for the season. The food Is excellent and the portions are ample. Service is top notch, friendly and you are never rushed. Used a Groupon this time which made the whole evening one to remember.
