Rough outing, inattentive service at best, forgetful though pleasant staff, unclean bathrooms with used paper towels making their way into the dining/bar area, “medium” filet that was definitely well-done, sadly going to be a hard pass next time.

Our waiter was picking up crumbs and dirty dishes off other tables and should be washing his hands before touching things being served to other tables. The server at the table next to us was explaining the menu and talking about the preparation and seasoning ect we would have preferred him ( he has long dark hair and a beard). When we finished our bread, it was taken by the busman in a quick walk by without offering more. It wasn’t the best service but at least this time the food was hot.

It was my sons Birthday, put candles on cheese cake and charged for the cheesecake. We have celebrated birthdays at this restaurant in the past and they have present a free dessert to the birthday person. Charged me for coffee but never brought it. They did take it off the bill after mentioning it.
Two members of my party ordered ribs, in the past give those eating ribs were given hot towels after the meal not this time.
It was the worst service at this restaurant I have ever had. I will go back but was disappointed with the service, which is usually excellent.

My family and I have been visiting this restaurant since its opening long ago.
It is probably our favorite restaurant ... for the whole package that it offers ...
really good food and excellent service.

The Lettuce Entertainment restaurants in general offer many customer
friendly benefits, like their November/December gift cards and bonus
cards. I can't think of another restaurant chain that treats its customers
so well.

Congratulations and continued success.

Very much enjoyed our dinner there, and the food and service were excellent. I would downgrade the experience because it was frustrating to wait over 20 minutes to get our "reserved" table.

Ordered the Friday night perch fish special. We have had this numerous time but this time the fish filets were so thin and small you could not taste the fish. Very disappointing

This is always a great spot for lunch in the burbs. We love the chopped salad and creamed spinach. The special chicken pot pie was very good too. Our server was very kind. We’ve known him a long time. I appreciated that he asked how my aunt was doing, even though she hasn’t been there in 7 months.

Our dinner was delicious: the steak had a good sear, and both it and the brisket were nice and tender. We enjoyed our sides, too--au gratin potatoes and the baked beans that came with the Tuesday brisket special (those had a good, smoky flavor). The classic old-fashioned was nicely spirits-forward.

Went for brunch and was very disappointed.
Three items on the menu , so our group all ended up ordering off regular menu. We were all very underwhelmed.

We went as a REDOfor our anniversary;although we didn’t tell the restaurant. We had gone elsewhere & were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED @ the other place

Sandy B — our waitress was endearing... asked us several times if our dinner was alright... did we need anything.

She made our evening special; as does the atmosphere & food.

We will be back for our anniversary as well as many other meals.

Thank you

Food was so so way overpriced for what you get $16 for a brisket sandwich the size of a Whitecastle and only one side! How do you say Rip off!

Since moving to Skokie, L. Woods has quickly become our favorite restaurant in all of Chicago...and that includes the pricey ones. No other restaurant makes such consistently delicious dishes, or has the unique ambience of this establishment.

The food was good. The service was good. Our only complaint is that it was cold in the restaurant that day January 1, 2020. Cold air was blowing on us. We thought about moving but another patron said they moved from a different place in the restaurant for the same reason and it didn't make a difference. We asked if something could be done to improve the situation. Our server said they would work on it but the there was no change.

I don't make recommendations to friends. I went for lunch. L. Woods is one of the few restaurants that serve beef rib, and they are great. Sat in the bar area, and a little chilly; otherwise a great lunch.

L.Woods is consistently great food and wonderful service. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get a reservation as it was New Years Eve. It was super busy but the staff stayed on top of everything!

This is a great place. Our most recent experience was on New Year's Eve so it was a hectic evening with big crowds. Under those circumstances, you would have to appreciate the quality of service and food. we were very happy and look forward to a return visit.
