Started out rough but manager made it right!
The food and service at Big Bowl never disappoint. I meet here with friends regularly. We love the large chicken salad plate with wontons and rice sticks.
Very nice place to go to celebrate anything. Great stir-fry bar
Casual dinner at the bar. Service and food were good.
Bland food. Very overpriced for what you get. Had chicken fried rice and Chinese noodles with beef. Chicken was tough and rubbery. Noodles had too much sauce. Would not return.
Food and Service was excellent. Brought a couple friends that had not been to Big Bowl before and they both really enjoyed it and plan to go back. Plenty of food also, we all had doggie bags to take home!
Server was AMAZING!
They were very busy for a Tuesday night, maybe because it was a Lettuce triple point day? Our server seemed overwhelmed or perhaps inexperienced but was friendly. Food good as always
Potstickers were cold. Remade and 2nd time also cold.
Consistently great food and service !
We always enjoy the variety of the specials
Our server was friendly, attentive, and thoughtful. I believe the problem was with the kitchen. We had a 6pm reservation and were seated at that time. While we did not order immediately, we also did not receive our dinners until 6:50. I noticed that our server was acting as expeditor, taking food to her tables who were waiting. When we told her that we need to leave fairly soon (we had allotted 1 1/4 hours to dine) she was quick to bring the check and make sure we got to the movies on time.
The meal felt rushed. Chicken in non-breaded wok-prepared orange chicken was so grisly I had to send it back. The waitress and manager were very nice about it but even the second dish seemed like a whole lot of rice with only the minimum added ingredients (chicken, red pepper and green pepper) they could get away with. The whole experience felt like a low-level chain restaurant. Spring roll appetizers were very good. But the overall experience was not what I expect from Lettuce.
My daughter has severe celiac with limited restaurant options she feels confident are safe to eat at. Big Bowl being one of them. We are never disappointed and love the food!
Great food. Service was amazing. Great job Rosemari
Had a great time celebrating a friend's birthday! food and service were fantastic! Will definitely be stopping by here more often.
Great food & the wait was not long. Good experience
Late Mother’s Day celebration. Great as always!
The food is always delicious and the servers are among the very best. It's one of my favorite go to restaurants.
The order was very late and it took more than 35 minutes which cannot be accepted during the office hours. One of the person ordered Veg (No Egg) but still food came with Egg where another five minutes of time went in vain. But the taste of food is good.
Excellent service and food came out quickly and correctly
Food was subpar compared to past visits. Sesame chicken was over cooked. Some of the vegetables in the other dishes were undercooked. Noise level was so loud our waiter had to ask us to repeat our orders. Not a great way to celebrate my daughter’s birthday.
Good was great as always. Service not so good; yes it was crowded for mother's day but we should have to ask for waters, to take our order, for check.... We asked for each thing we needed
I like Big Bowl because I like fried rise and u can order there cauliflower fried rise :)
Allways good food
Excellent, great tasting food with good service! Although it was busy, being Mothers Day, we were seated on time. When we requested that our ginger ale be re-done, it was done to our satisfaction without any attitude by our waiter. Big Bowl always seems to deliver on service and taste regardless of location. We have been happy with Lincolnshire, Chicago and Schaumburg. Keep up the great work.
Service is good and the food is OK, not great. The major problem with this restaurant is the noise. There is no acoustic insulation. Aside from the din created by the people, the overall background sound is tinny and hollow. Could not wait to get out of this restaurant. The noise ruined our dinner and we will not return.
Great place to dine with family, friend and colleagues.
Great meal, although a vegetable stir fry was delivered with unordered chicken!
As always, the food was great. Our server was very good.
Pearl is a wonderfully consistent server. We had a problem recently with the salmon being too rare for our taste and she and the manager handled it like champs!! Bravo Howard.
Mike our server is the best. We always ask for him when we go in. He always is very attentive and makes sure we know the specials. Please don’t ever let him leave
Food was good but service was less than par. I think our waiter had too many tables. He wasn’t able to ask of refills on drinks. This was disappointing because usually the waiters are excellent especially Mike and his brother.
terrific server, food was absolutely yummy and we never feel rushed thru dinners there. so good! great experience.
We started off with the fruit sangria of the month which is always, always a taste treat. We shared the ahi tuna and avocado spring rolls which were light and nutritious filled not only with tuna and avocado, but a good portion of crunchy greens and a light ginger soy dipping sauce to give it a bit of sweet tart bite. My friend had the Sweet and Sour Shrimp which is the best anywhere. I tried the Black Pepper Scallops with Bok Choy on the seasonal menu at the suggestion of our waitress and it, too, was fabulous. Black pepper sauce soaked the chopped bok choy and there were 7 or 8 good sized scallops on my plate, lighted coated with a hint of sweet potato flour (I think that's what the waitress said) and cooked lightly to perfection. I had expected a bit more bok choy and mentioned to my waitress, who immediately brought me a side dish with more bok choy. This is my favorite go to restaurant for Chinese food. Perhaps China Town has better, but I hardly ever make a trip down there.
Food was great and I love the cauliflower rice option.
Terrific food. We love the pad thai options and the appetizers
I am a huge fan of Big Bowl; however, the service the other night was awful. She might as well have worked at McDonald's. I mentioned it to the Manager on the way out and he didn't seem to care much.
I'll be back because the food is fresh and great and most other servers are good!
We were never offered drinks or appetizers and our food came ridiculously fast. We felt we were totally being rushed to leave even though the restaurant was not full. Food as always was excellent.
I love the food at Big Bowl. But tonight on two different occasions there where children eating dinner at the bar, and I feel that is highly inappropriate considering it’s illegal in the state of Illinois for minors to be sitting at a bar. Big Bowl needs to fix this problem now or we will NOT come back!!?
The food and service were good. The server although very busy was attentive
