Good restaurant, however, street parking is a challenge.

Food was outstanding. We were glad we were on upper level, noise level was better. Main floor was very crowded and noisy
Service good. We didn't have enough time to linger. Would have enjoyed coffee and dessert, I'm sure!
PS Complimentary valet parking was great because parking in downtown Hinsdale is difficult.

Went for lunch with friends, took us 20 minutes to get our drinks and take our order. Another 30 minutes until our food arrived, and one member of our group had to cancel her order because she had to leave. Drinks were not refilled, waitress was inattentive. Food was average, a bit on the expensive side.

We made a reservation for 6 for my freshman daughter's homecoming group. A week before Homecoming, the restaurant called and told us that due to the number of homecoming reservations, they would offer an optional $30 fixed menu (including tip and taxes) to the homecoming crowd to make sure everyone. I thought this was a great idea and strongly suggested to the girls in the group that they take advantage of this menu. On Homecoming Night, one of the girls was unable to make dinner due to a sports event which ran late. The restaurant charged the group of 5 girls an extra $30 for the "optional" price fixed menu for the missing girl. I could not believe the restaurant would do this to a group of young girls - it was embarrassing and upsetting to them, as some had only brought the $30 they needed for their own meal. In my opinion this was out of bounds, and the restaurant would never have tried to charge a group of adults for this. This restaurant took advantage of a group of young girls and ruined their homecoming dinner, and I can't in good faith recommend anyone go to a restaurant who would treat their young customers this poorly.

We come here fairly often and always enjoy our meal. It's a nice setting and it's consistently good food. I don't remember the wine by the glasses being so expensive in the past. It would be nice if there were a couple of moderately priced wine by the glass. I couldn't find one red I wanted that was less than $16 a glass. The new small plates seem a little pricey for what you get, as well. I had a tiny little salad to start and two scallops for my dinner. With my two drinks, our bill for two people was $175 with tip. Seemed a little excessive this time. Did the prices go up recently, I'm wondering.

We've had several great meals here, however service on Father's Day was horrible . We had to wait a long time to order and receive our food. Our water wasn't even refilled during the meal and we had to flag our waiter down to get an additional drink to have with our main meal. They were clearly overwhelmed with the crowd and couldn't take care of all of its patrons. Several other tables walked out because they weren't served in a timely manner. It's a shame because the food was good, but wth the prices you pay the service was unacceptable - AND on Father's Day! Sadly, we won't be going back.

Always fantastic but they didn't hit the mark tonight. The service staff was forgetful and it was oddly noisier than normal- was hard to hear sitting at a round table. The food was five star!
