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.
Wonderful food. Fresh ingredients. Interesting recipes. And love that they offer small portion sizes so u can try more things!
Lisa went out of her way to accommodate us and ensure a great experience for us.
We again did a 4 course mystery tasting menu . The only negative was that the first course had much too much bread : bread and butter— Barada with toast— bruschetta— and breaded calamari. We were stuffed by the 2nd course. I was dying for a salad! It was all delicious but too much bread!!
Disappointing overall. Nothing is really great about this restaurant. Service, food and ambiance are just ok. We haven't gone in a few years and had hoped things had improved since we were last there, but no such luck. We won't be back. Surprisingly average.
Our waiter, Adam, explained the menu and where the restaurant gets it provisions (meats, cheeses, spices and vegetables). His recommendations were spot on and delicious. My next visit will be for lunch.
I ordered the poached Cod, a featured dish. It was watery and without flavor. The presentation was unappetizing. My wife ordered the butternut squash with was without flavor or distinction.
My wife and I went here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We were greeted by the hostess with a “Happy Anniversary,” which made us both smile. Our waiter was the best waiter I’ve ever had at any restaurant! He was fun, very knowledgeable about all the food and drinks. The service from all the staff was excellent, and the food was even better. My wife and I both remarked as we were leaving that we’d like to make this apart of our yearly anniversary tradition. Thanks Inovasi!
Great food& service. Nice bar scene too. Great people watching inside & outside with windows in bar& dining room.
Order the burger and fries which was recommended by the waitress. Fries arrived cold, the burgers were not cooked to order. Finally got some warmer fries but were disappointed to be upcharged on the truffle fries after they arrived cold the first time and after we were done eating the second time. There are better options out there.
Food was outstanding and service was excellent. I had Salmon and it was fresh and perfect. Dessert was chocolate and delicious.
Another evening with excellent service, creative and flavorful food, including plenty of gluten free options. My only consistent complaint is the noise level which depending upon the spirits of other patrons can make conversation nearly impossible. Such was the case on this occasion.
Waiter messed up one of our orders so one persons entree never showed up. He was apologetic but it was disappointing at that price point.
Great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion!
We enjoyed trying some of the new dishes, including the trout and a selection from the Taco Tuesday menu. The burgers were really good as usual. Both desserts were nicely presented and delicious. We love the great beer selection.
This was our first visit to Inovasi and it won't be our last. Excellent food from appetizer to main dishes to dessert. Thoughtful and attentive service added to our experience. We also enjoyed the chance to walk around the little downtown area of Lake Bluff. A winner all around.
The food was excellent. I had the crunchy salmon roll and mushroom pasta and my mother had bruchetta and a fish dish. It was all very well prepared and the outdoor seating was very nice - and very much in demand! I'd like to see some more choices on the menu.
Inovasi continues to offer a exceptional food in a casual, hometown setting. Service was also strong.
Keys to a great night out for dinner with friends ....really creative menu, solid wine list and attentive service.
The staff; especially Adam, make Inovasi special again. If you don't go... someone else will be sitting in your seat tonight...its just that good. Great job John and thank you.
We had a great experience at Inovasi. The server was very knowledgeable and the food was delicious. Will definitely go back again.
A very nice, cozy restaurant with excellent food at reasonable prices. The menu is creative and well thought out, though small. The service was terrific - our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the food offerings, and it was nice to have the options of either a full entrée or a smaller size. Appetizers very good also.
Great food, great service!
I’m never disappointed when we dine here. It’s a special place. Five stars!
Outstanding dinner with 3 couples. The restaurant was very busy but the service, from Adam, was perfect ! He explained all the dishes and recommended the perfect wines to compliment our meal. The amount of food was enough to share for each dish. And the value of the dinner was spot on. Can't wait to go back. Soon !!!
