Excellent service and pleasant, knowledgeable waiter, David
Superb food, BEST food in the Chicagoland area
Highly recommend this restaurant
Very pricey, but food and atmosphere worth it. Only 4 stars for the Seabass , expensive and overcooked.
peas and onions and EJ's slaw awesome.
Always fantastic food and service! Celebrating DAd’s birthday with Mom. They had never been. Loved it.
Was for a birthday but we go all the time. Excellent food!
I guess everyone has an off night and this was it for EJ’s. Perhaps don’t go on a Monday before a holiday, but as it was my husband’s bday, not much choice of date. Started with a stale breadbasket and ended with key lime pie that had sat in a refrigerator too long and had that just off taste. At least that was on-the-house for his bday. In between, Chicken Oreganata’s all white meat was terribly overcooked and Dover Sole was dry, too. Even the always delicious cottage fries arrived cold, as if they sat awhile as the other items overcooked. Not writing EJ’s off, but I would be very sad if this is the new normal for them.
EJ's Place is so good that the kids visit us more often so they can go there.
Another great meal and Christian provides excellent service.The best bread sticks, cottage fries,
salad,steaks key lime pie....among many many other things.
Highly recommend and looking forward to returning.
Also, we had the pleasure of meeting Lucca - a real gentleman. EJ did real good...terrific family and restaurant.
Amazing!food and service were excellent!
We were very disappointed. The quality and quantity of food isn’t what we have become a custom to at EJs
Servce and the food was as good as it gets. Never had a bad steak yet. Been going there for 20 years.
School reunion of about 15 and it was all perfect: service, menu, food, table arrangements.
Always love this place!!!! Amazing food, service and staff :-)
Always a great choice with excellent, friendly service and excellent food.
Great service! Very accommodating and excellent food
Expensive, but you get what you pay for and more. Large portions of quality food and beverages.
Wait staff old school, aim to please, made us feel like we were the only persons in the room and they were there for us only.
It was super expensive for the overall experience. The steak was average and no thrills but will set you back over $50. The sides are nothing special, average at best. The service was good. The place advertises cocktails but they don’t have a cocktail menu. You can order your standby favorites though from the bar.
Great food and incredible service.
EJ’s never lets me down .
Always consistent service and food. Probably the best steakhouse on the Northshore!
EJ's has become a once a week place to go - that's how excellent it is!
We had the bone in strip - which was a special on the menu. Really good.
Christian was our waiter and the service was outstanding.
Overall food was amazing and the service was good, but our server got distracted by a bigger party and forgot about us. Not ideal when dining w a baby and timing counts.
Great food and David is the best!!! Never disappoints!!
The steaks along with the sides (sautéed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes) we had were delicious! Service was excellent as well. The decor didn’t quite match the cost of the food. Felt more like I was in a restaurant in the north woods where I would have a casual family meal rather than a place where they sell $60 steak dinners. That being said, I would probably go back to try some of the less costly items on their menu simply because the food is very good. Lastly, the noise level was pretty high. It made us rush through the meal just so we can get out and hear each other.
It’s great but very expensive
Awesome food and incredible service.
The best! Wonderful execution from the staff, as always.
Great every time
Lots of food. No one could finish their meal
Lots of leftovers
Way too expensive, but very good tasting food.
Food was good especially the seafood pasta was outstanding.The sea bass was good but not great. When you go to EJ’s you better expect to spend a few bucks because it is kind of pricey but very good for special occasions
Stopped in for the first time on Wednesday, before attending a play in Glencoe. Food and service were like being downtown Chicago!
Waiter was very good! Dover sole was excellent and moist, which isn't' always the case.
No better place on the North Shore. Food and Service are outstanding. They pour a good drink as well.
Delicious food, excellent t service. First time there and was very pleased. Will be back!
Delicious meats, wonderful cocktails, excellent service make this a great adult hangout. The key lime pie is scrumptious, too!
A traditional supper club with food and service that is a cut above.
Kid friendly but pricey.
Nicely aged steak and huge portions.
Overall a positive experience for all!
Food & service always good. A bit noisy where we were sitting.
Everything was amazing except for the 3 drunk women sitting at the table next to us. The food is incredible and the service is wonderfully attentive. We had a fabulous meal.
It was perfect. !
bone in strip was the finest steak we ever had.
there was not one bad cottage fry in the bunch.
2nd time in a row having Christian as our waiter...awesome job again!
One of the best.
Always highly recommend.
Great place for dinner on a special occasion or any time. The service is top notch.
BEST PLACE EVER. NO MATTER WHAT YOU ORDER, THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT; PLUS, A BONUS! YOU GET TO EAT THAT SAME MEAL FOR THE NEXT TWO DAYS AS WELL BECAUSE THEIR PORTIONS ARE HUGE. MY BROTHER AND NEPHEW SPLIT A SKIRT STEAK - AND COULD BARELY FINISH IT. I HAD ORDERED THE SKIRT STEAK ON ANOTHER OCCASION FOR MYSELF AND I HAD ENOUGH TO EAT FOR THREE DAYS FOLLOWING. THE DRINKS ARE STRONG. THE SERVICE BEYOND COMPARE. GO THERE. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
