Inovasi is a contemporary American restaurant that blurs the lines between casual and upscale dining. We believe in a natural harmony and honesty in every dish we prepare and work with local farms in our community to hand-select the freshest of sustainable ingredients to be used at our restaurant. Our wish is for you to experience the uncompromising quality of these ingredients that help create a layered depth and richness of flavors in the food we serve.
Great atmosphere, service and food. We ordered a dish that was a bit spicy for us (no fault of Chef). We did not request to return or exchange meal; however, we were given a wonderful salad on the house. We were also given a discount for our Navy graduate.
Excellent experience, Thank You
Great dinner and good wine!! Good place to celebrate a special occasion
Great food & seevice
Our waiter was great as was the food
Overall, our meal was fantastic, waiter was very nice and very knowledgeable, and everything went well. The food was phenomenal and the chef even made a “custom”
meal for our 7yr old who didn’t like anything on the children’s menu. I will say - our kids (5yrs and 7yrs) were the only kids in the restaurant. So it’s not super kid friendly but we did just fine.
Great, as always
Had the appetizers and drinks with my wife... great time with awesome food!
We went for early dinner for our anniversary. Food was excellent. Really nice staffs. Ambiance was great. Highly recommended.
This is becoming our favorite local restaurant. They gave us free sparkling wine for our anniversary and the food was delicious as always. We love the extensive gluten free choices.
Did not honor reservation time. 20 minutes beyond our reservation time still not seated. Sat at bar and it was very loud and disruptive. Food was under cooked and not spectacular as it has been in the past.
Inovasi is one of our favorites, and it never disappoints! The food is prepared in such a unique way, with ingredients and flavors you would not typically expect. The standouts this time would probably be the duck, the short rib, and the beets. There were 8 of us for dinner; we all shared appetizers and desserts (which is helpful when everything looks too good to make up your mind!) and we were all entirely pleased with our meal.
Got a table... No waiting
Impeccable service and a delicious, seasonal menu. We'll definitely be back.
Food was average and expensive. Waiter was great and on top of our needs
Entrees explained,prepared and presented by pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Adam is to be especially complemented for enhancing our dining experience!
Great night with my 3 kids for Christmas.
There was a temporary
Most of the menu is gluten free and delicious. Love the Duck, burgers, GF bread and butter, beet salad, brussel sprout ceaser salad.
We had a great night at Inovasi for our anniversary. Food was very good and service was outstanding. Great atmosphere and over-all great experience.
Absolutely amazing would definitely go back very friendly food is exquisite service impeccable
I have been a regular diner at Inovasi since it began ten years ago. I find it to be consistently inconsistent.
On this occasion the food was very, but the service/operation was particularly weak. Just 3-5 minutes after placing our orders, the first course arrived at our table. "My, that was fast," my guest instinctively said. Ten minutes later, while still eating the first course, our entrees were presented. We placed them to one side while we hurriedly finished the starters. This is not the first time I have had such an experience at Inovasi. While the restaurant is obviously not trying to provide a leisurely, multi-hour dining experience, neither should it try to provide fast food.
We are Lake Forest residents and have been to Inovasi on a regular basis. The food continues to impress. My husband had a terrific seasonal fig cocktail, and the merlot recommended to us by our waiter was fantastic. All of the food was delicious, and the service was knowledgeable.
Always a good experience here. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly and food is outstanding.
Amazing restaurant, impeccable service by our waitstaff Juan.Wine list very good .Food excellent!
We come back to Inovasi frequently for good food, prepared as ordered! Servers are courteous, knowledgeable and deferential.
Terrific delicious lovely menu in a great surrounding. Creative and just scrumptious
We eat at a lot of well-regarded restaurants throughout the North Shore, and we've concluded that Inovasi has the most consistently excellent food. On our most recent visit, my wife - who's very fussy about her fish - absolutely raved about her mahi mahi, and I loved my tri-tip in a bed of light mashed potatoes. We shared the beet salad, which was outstanding. And our waiter, Juan, could not have been more personable. Before dinner, we had a drink in the bar, where the bartender was very pleasant and made an excellent dirty Bombay Sapphire martini. On top of all that, the rest of the staff, including the hostess, were very warm and made us feel very welcome.
Great food and service
Efficient and knowledgeable staff, excellent food, nice ambience. Will definitely return!!
Delicious food and great wine list. The waiter really knew a lot about how everything was prepared, and was very friendly and helpful.
Great food and service! Highly recommend!
Wonderful restaurant with above average food. Such a gem in Lake Bluff. Chef John has done a wonderful job. Adam our server was amazing too! Hope to plan another visit soon!
It was great. Realized they did not acknowledge it was an anniversary til we left. I wish I would have said something. It was our guests not ours.
Michelin level dining without needing to go into a big city. I don’t know why Chef John des Rosiers chooses to grace the Northern Chicago suburbs with his brilliance but I’m thankful he does.
If you are a North shore foodie, look no further.
I have never walked out of Inovasi disappointed, unless being sad the meal inevitability had to end counts!
Four of us had a very nice dinner on Wednesday evening. The squash soup was excellent. I had the crunchy salmon roll which was very good. One of us had the calamari which was also good. Please add chocolate gelato or ice cream to the menu.
local/neighborhood "gem"..........i think i would eat everything on the menu........great Chef cooking with good ingredients...........one of the best restaurants in the far north suburbs/lake county.....
I love trying different dishes every time we come here!
Had 10 people for dinner. Service and food all great.
Very interesting and healthy food selections, compared to what is available locally. The food quality and choices are like city dining in the suburbs
An excellent restaurant: serving food with great flavors. Also, the staff was very good with suggesting options to avoid food allergies.
