Big taste, not too saucy!!
Cafe Pyrenees never disappoints. Lovely service, delicious food. Worth the drive and the slightly above average prices.
great dinner and the cost was amazingly low! we took advantage of the special 25 dollar menu..
we had escargo and cesar salad very good
salmon and mussels -- salmon was cooked perfect - no heavy sauce! was great!
mussels were very good - very fresh ..
finally - a banana ice cream that rocked... all home made..
Decent food, if you have two hours to expend in a meal. A delay is expected when waiting for an entree, but when you are not promptly greeted and then have to wait 20’ for the soup, 21’ for the entree and anther 15 for a pre-made dessert, another 15 for your check and an extra 10’ for the check to be pick up. You just feel neglected and the food experience in overrided but the uncomfortable feeling of been in a non efficient or caring production line.
As always, Cafe Pyrenees has great wines available and personable service. I appreciate that their meal portions aren't so huge that I can't finish and still have desserts and appetizers.
Went during Restaurant Week; the $25 price fixed menu was a great deal. The restauarant is a little more expensive normally but reasonable given the quality of the food. Very good wine menu.
Went for restaurant week. Enjoyed our meal. Good ambiance, service and great food. Bar is quite nice. Wish we had come earlier to listen to the live music before dinner. Creme brulee was amazing. My husband has escargot app and he lived it. Overall a great experience.
Wonderful food, great service. will definitely come again.
Awesome as always. Great ambience, service and food. Incredible dining experience
Food and ambience was outstanding...the little jewel we have been looking for in our area did not disappoint. Reasonable pricing especially in the bar. Next time we are going to enjoy the bar menu and the reasonably priced drink and wine offerings with friends in the bar area of the restaurant...wonderful quite space to enjoy appetizers and cocktails. Our new favorite French restaurant!
The food was amazing. The creme brulee is a MUST.
They double charged my card for the meal now I have to go through the hassle of getting it reversed. Basic service, huge fail.
This is a gem!! We have Ben patrons from the beginning on Rate 60. Made and Jean make one feel welcome. The holiday DJ certainly knows how to entertain an audience. We go often.
too expensive for the quality and variety of food. Very loud, slow service.
Will not recommend for a small group, unless you get a separate room for a special occasion.
We always enjoy Café Pyrnees. Good food, good service.
Very authentic French restaurant with a great wine list. Food was very good!
Great Valentine's night! My wife and I enjoyed the whole experience. Food was delicious (lamb shank) and the mushroom with brie app was amazing. Service was fantastic.
With exceptional service and very friendly staff and owners, this is a must go to restaurant for those who enjoy great food and excellent wine selections. The food selections is great with many dishes being over the top in taste and presentation. I recommend this to everyone who enjoys fine dining.
We were running late but we were graciously accommodated. Very well prepared and presented dishes all around.
Had a wonderful Valentine's night dinner. The food was interesting & excellent quality & fairly priced. The wine list was nice & well priced. We will return.
We have been to Cafe Pyrenees a number of times over the years and this was one of our best meals. Great service (thank you Nathan), great drinks, great Caesar and French Onion soup, and great entrees. No room for dessert. We will be back soon.
Charming French restaurant.
Meat and fish both excellent.
Portion size very good.
Recommend you try.
Went with friends and we chose the early bird special that offers appetizer,
entree and dessert for $20 on Tuesday-Thursday from 4-6pm.
Choices were good...food was delicious, especially the salmon. the wait staff was attentive and pleasant.
We will definitely return!
Another fine evening with Mari and her staff. Delicious traditional French preparations done to perfection.
Cafe Pyrenees is a tried and true destination for dinner. We have been eating at this restaurant beginning with their Vernon Hills location and then moving to their Libertyville location. It is authentic and delicious French food served by staff who are very well informed. The wine selection is excellent!
Ambiance and food was wonderful. The service was initially good but once the restaurant got busy, the service became sparse. Would go again with that in mind.
We used to love this place. The menu has changed from being a french bistro type of restaurant to a more international fare. The food was good. I took over an hour to get our entrees. The $28 Beef Bourguignon is overpriced. With the beef you a dollop of mashed potatoes and three miniature carrots (the kind they sell in plastic bags in the grocery store). You can't peel and cut your own carrots? I don't think we will return.
Service was good but food was good but not exceptional.
Very impressed. Authentic French cuisine. Very polite and friendly waiter.
This was not a good visit for me and three guests. Service was just OK and we were frustrated by the waiter who mumbled and was difficult to understand. We started with a charcuterie plate and one of the cheeses had a hair on it. The waiter came back with obviously the same platter saying it was a "fiber". Ugh. House salads were great. My wife's Risotto was OK. My snapper special was overcooked. The free range chicken was overcooked and there was another "fiber" in it which we didn't report. A salmon dish was good. My wife enjoyed her Creme Brulee. I found the Banana Bread Pudding oddly plated, but the taste was good. It looked a lot more like a pound cake. We have dined here three times and this restaurant appears to be going downhill. We were greatly disappointed since we were entertaining out of town guests who were foodies.
WE SAW-IN 2018 AT CAFE PYRENEES AND IT WAS A HAPPY, WELCOMING EVENING G, WAIT SERVICE WAS RIGHT ON. GREAT MENU . THE ENTIRE RESTAURANT SEEM TO FEEL THE ANTICIPATION OF A "NEW" YEAR MARI, JEAN AND THE FAB DJ MIGUEL MADE OUR VISIT ONE WE HOPE TO DO AGAIN. WE DINE THERE OFTEN, AS WE ARE LOCALS, BUT IT IS WELL WORTH A DRIVE TO DISCOVER THIS HIDDEN GEM IN LIBERTYVILLE IL
We usually go to Cafe Pyrenees about once or twice a year. This time the occasion was New Year's Eve. While the regular menu is interesting, the special menu for this occasion added some interesting options. Because Cafe Pyrenees is a short drive from where we live, it is a a favorite of ours for special occasions.
Solid French cuisine.
We had a nice evening of apps, dinner and wine, and it was very tasty. The food is always good and service is too.
We will be back! Had a great Christmas Eve dinner and the menu was spectacular, as well as the wine selection. Mari is always a gracious host and makes the dining experience that much better!
Been going here for 12 years and have never been let down by the Jean Marc’s food the wonderful front of house led by his wife Mari and the staff. Our usual server Jesus has been there the entire 27 years they’ve been open and is warm and charming, it’s nice to arrive at a restaurant and greeted by such a warm and friendly staff. Here’s to their continued success.
My favorite place! Always so accommodating, food always amazing, service always fantastic. Thank you for being consistently above the rest in every category!
It has been some time since Cafe Pyrenees has been open for lunch. As soon as I discovered that they were serving lunch in December, I made a reservation at once. The lunch menu is splendidly diverse, featuring things one normally expects and enjoys in the evening but also an impressive array of great things only available at lunchtime. Service, as usual, was impeccable, and Jean Marc is a gifted French chef.
This is a delightful place to dine. The food and service are excellent. Mari and team provide a personalized dining experience that gives you a family type environment. We will definitely return even though it is about an hour drive.
This was our first time here and will definitely return! Food was delicious, wine list great, and atmosphere very nice. All four in our group had different entrees and were all fantastic. The beef bourguignon was melt in your mouth....no need for a knife! Cafe Pyrenees was a great find!
One of my favorite restaurants. Great food, and the owner (Mari) is very accommodating.
