Big Bowl - Schaumburg Ratings and Reviews
Everytime we have the pleasure of eating at Big Bowl we are so delighted! The food comes PIPING HOT, which is a huge deal to me! We all love going up to the stir fry area and choosing our own veggies! I love bok choy so love loading that right up! Great variety of veggies! My son is vegan and he's always very satisfied with the variety and selections! My only complaint is parking..nothing to be done about that!
The food was very good and the service was friendly and relatively fast. The only odd thing is that, I was dining alone, since I was on a business trip. Even though there were plenty of empty tables in the main room, they put me in the back room, by myself. It stayed that way until I was almost done when a man dining by himself was brought in the room and seated at the next table over. At that point, it felt kind of like they were quarantining us. I actually didn't mind being there as it's a bit more quiet and less busy, but it was definitely odd.
Wow! We started with vegetable potstickers. My friend then had spicy Thai food and I had a sesame chicken rice bowl. We were both very happy! Then, because of a birthday, we had our choice of desserts - - we went with the almond cookie sundae and it was FANTASTIC! The service was great with a server not afraid to suggest different things to try. Will go back!
My daughter and I went to Big Bowl because we'd been there before and really liked it. Her food looked great; she had the salmon. I was disappointed in my Orange Chicken. It was very sweet and the amount of greens and chicken was quite minimal. I don't appreciate when servings are plentiful on the cheaper ingredients, in this case rice, but low on the more expensive items: chicken. Even vegetables. Just a few more springs of onion? That wouldn't be terribly expensive! I might go back, but I'll never order that again.
Made reservations for 545 for birthday celebration. Waited 1/2 hour in crowded room. Many people who were walk ins were allowed in as I suppose available seating for larger parties were more important . Barely got our son to the college bus in time that leaves from woodfield. Also, credit card wasn’t returned and when we said that it hadn’t been, we were told it had been given back but would double check and there it was... nice waitress but experience was disappointing . Been big bowl fans for years till now. Sorry but not up to par .
Food was ok but not steamy like previous times.
Plenty of other restaurants and can’t take a chance on bringing guests .
Sorry but time to review what’s needed to bring you back to a 4 star or what we used to consider a 10.
First time back to Big Bowl in many years. Wasn't overly thrilled. food was good but not great, I had asked to have my dish spicy, was not spicy at all. Had 2 delicious martinis, $9.50 each and I wouldn't have known that I had any alcohol at all, didn't want to be hammered but would like to have felt relaxed. Server was very inattentive. Again not terrible, not anxious to return soon either.
Very disappointed, at a restaurant I have visited many time, and will never again. The server was completely inattentive, the staff was as well, to the point where the server lost my credit card. Management was also unattractive, and unsympathetic, at a time where i was getting married in a couple days, all my reservations were on that card. I cannot believe this place even stays in business compared to how they treat customers they inconvenienced. Terrible ratings and terrible service.
I frequently eat at Big Bowl. Our server was fantastic. The food fell short however. The soup was not hot, just warm, green bean tempura warm, beef warm pot stickers on the cold side.....I will say the apple dessert was hot. So this time I was disappointed.
Food was good as usual except for the dessert. We got the warm apple dessert with ice cream. It was good until I saw a piece of apple that still had the sticker on it from the grocery store. They left the sticker on when they sliced the apple and then baked it with the sticker on. I was almost done eating when I saw this. Ugh.
The bottle of red wine we ordered was great. The appetizers were awesome. The main entrées were all good; we shared all the dishes. The atmosphere was lively. It's a good thing we made a reservation in advance. I wish there were a location closer to us. You should open more restaurants. Overall, the cuisine and the dining experience were excellent. I will be making a return trip in the very near future. Keep up the good work!
We had a reservation for 8 and did not get seated until 8:20. They were taking bigger parties that were walk ins before us. We complained and got seated within 10 minutes. The waitress we had was beyond excellent but the wait to be seated was too much to overcome. I do not think we will be back
