New Rebozo Oak Park
New Rebozo, which is run by Chef Paco, serves traditional Mexican dishes that have received awards for their authenticity. The menu is filled with a variety of spicy, sour and sweet flavors. These dishes are never prepared in heavy grease or pork fat, providing guests with healthier, more flavorful options to enjoy. Diners can stop by and sample one of the 21 different moles, or opt for the Fiesta Mole that features enchiladas covered in six different moles. New Rebozo also features seasonal dishes that use traditional spices and local ingredients, like the Chile Nogada that's only available between September and December.
Visitors to New Rebozo can also try a traditional margarita with their meals, or branch out and discover the pomegranate margarita for new and interesting tastes. From appetizers to dishes, such as carne tampiquena and enchiladas Frida, there is an option available that everyone can enjoy.
The only thing was that the service was not great. The chef is nice, but his staff brought out the wrong drinks and it was ridiculous.
We went for Valentine’s Day, weren’t told there was a special Valentine’s Day menu we were stuck with. Potatoes were not cooked through on the appetizer. Tilapia was not prepared well. Extremely small portions.
Went for Valentine’s Day. The only menu available was the prix fix menu. It was reasonably priced for a three course meal. The soup was outstanding however the puff pasty with the potatoes felt out of place as did the vegetarian option of mixed veggies with puff pastry. Repetitive and lacking substance. The portion sizes for the entrees were very small and I saw other tables with chips and salsa and tortillas so I felt the value of the meal was low. The protein sizes were appetizers size.
The flavors were amazing chef Paco was the best part of the experience. I want to go back to taste the regular menu and see chef Paco again.
Great food. I will come back soon. The chef is very friendly and talks to everyone that enters the restaurant.
I would recommend to a friend, but was disappointed at the lack of host service when I first arrived at the restaurant. I had made a reservation in advance and still ended up waiting 30 minutes for a table because there was no host to filter through the line. Therefore, customers that arrived ahead of me but did not have a reservation were seated prior to my group. New Robozo is typically packed during prime hours on Friday and Saturday nights, but the wait was excessive my last visit. Additionally, there's an extremely small waiting area right by the door, which contributed to my waiting displeasure.
The best food. Chef Paco specialized the dinner to meet our needs.
Paco and his food were great as always! Fun and delicious!
The chef is imaginative and knows how to showcase his wares - coming tableside to share the daily specials with us, and checking in with us often throughout the meal. Delicious food and welcoming atmosphere!
Paco never fail to deliver fantastic specials in addition to the main menu. We had lobster appetizer, which took us about 30 seconds to finish it was so delicious. Main dishes, complex but not overly done.
My new favorite restaurant. The food and drinks were amazing!
I know they’re famous for their moles but I absolutely love the steak tampiqueña here. My friend had the fiesta De mole and was also super happy. They also had an amazing appetizer special. I guess what I’m trying to say is everything here is great!
Fantastic place to eat. We loved it. The mole was phenomenal. The service was great. We will be returning.
I've always left New Rebozo with a smile. Chef Paco's personality, passion and enthusiasm shine as he greets every table and goes over the specials. For the first time in all of my visits, I brought my son and daughter. The day before was my daughters birthday that we spent with family, so wanted to celebrate with a nice, fun meal out. During Chef Paco's presentation of the specials, he asked my daughter (whom he called "preciosa") how old she was. She hesitated for a moment, because of her recent age change, to which we laughed, and mentioned it was her birthday yesterday. Chef immediately informed our waited of my daughters birthday (in Spanish). After dinner, Chef and our waiter came out w/ dessert for the kids and a candle in my daughters and sang her Feliz Cumpleanos. The food was fantastic as well. In all of my times there, I never tried the Chile Nogado... Big mistake - as I've missed out all these years. Its AMAZING! The walnut cream sauce is what dreams are made of, and the texture of the beef w/ the fruits and nuts mixed in is perfect. The kids both loved their food as well (off of the kids menu). The margaritas are not huge, but delicious, and one will definitely get you feeling good.
I really don't know how Chef Paco does it... He makes everyone feel so welcomed and like he's known them forever. I don't know if he actually remembers me, but the hug he gave to my family and I on our way out sure made us feel like VIP's.
Mole! Mole! Mole! Another great meal as usual
Amazing food created with passion. Chef Paco is such a brilliant and innovative Chef! Known for his Moles, you have to try them all!
The food is reliably good and fresh and chef paco makes it worth it.
Consistently Good ~ friendly staff! Authentic food where the Chef visits your table!
I love the fact Chef paco makes it a point to meet and talk to his customers. He explains the menu too! Good host!
Great authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices.
It was our first time here and it was a great experience. We where just seated when Chef Paco can to our table and cheerfully showed us what were the specials for the night. We where very happy with the service and food we had.
I just fell in love with this place. The food and the service is outstanding.
The service here was amazing. The chef personally came to our table and showed us his favorite items. His enthusiasm for his food got me to try something that I normally wouldn't have tried, and I'm so glad I did! Will definitely be back here if I'm in Oak Park!
Chef Paco and staff are great and set the tone for a great experience!
Always top notch! We brought friends who had never been - they raved and look forward to bring others to New Rebozo! Chef Paco never disappoints.
The food was def unique. It was good but nothing that really wow’ed us. The service was very great. Super nice staff. The chef also came out and walked table to table to check on the food etc.- that was cool to see!
Food was excellent. So were the margaritas. Friendly atmosphere and Paco, the owner, is a blast!
Chef Paco is the man. He greets your table and explains the specials, he will pour you water, he will cook the food, he will bring you drinks. Food is outstanding so many flavors and textures. The mojitos are off the hook. One app, two entries and four mojitos came out to $110. $40 of that was drinks. We each left with doggie bags. Worth every penny.
Chile en Nogada is to die for. Oh my God! The service is phenomenal. I appreciate Chef Paco stopping by the table and going over the specials. He is very charismatic.
So happy to have the stuffed poblano pepper and enchiladas. Moles delicious as always. Great service!
Wonderful as usual! We have been visiting Paco for years and took friends on Friday, a first time for them. They both loved it! Thanks to all the team at New Rebozo!
Exceptional and creative Mexico City style menu created by Chef Paco, who is a true showman as he describes daily specials. If you have been there once he will recognize you and make a bit of a fuss. Not cheap, this is quality and unique flavor combinations. Extensive varieties of moles. Czn't get enough of the New Rebozo!
I’m reviewing my dining experience and also the cooking class I attended at this restaurant. I recently went to New Rebozo on a Friday evening to introduce friends to Chef Paco and his wonderful food. It’s that time of the year when I can get the Chef’s special chile en nogado. I live for this dish! It’s a poblano pepper stuffed with a sweet and spicy beef mixture with dried fruit and topped with a wonderful creamy walnut sauce sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. It represents the colors of the Mexican flag, red, green and white. This creation is full of flavor, texture and is a party in my mouth. I love, love, love it! We also shared a guacamole and the mango and goat cheese tamale, as well as the jalapeño chocolate ice cream for dessert. The tamale is creamy and sweet with the mango and just plain delicious. While dining, I asked the chef about his cooking class and my husband and I signed up on the spot. Chef Paco’s cooking class is fantastic. It’s 4-5 hours of cooking, eating and drinking. There about 10 courses and each couple or individual gets to cook a course with the chef. Everything we made and ate was fantastic from the soup to the desserts. I highly recommend this experience. It was a fun way to spend a day with my husband and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Just make sure to take an Uber there and back because the drinks are flowing!
Food was excellent as always. Had the stuffed pepper special. Crunchy, sweet, spicy creamy all at once. A seasonal favorite that I could eat every week! Fabulous!
WONDERFUL! Chef Paco is amazing and the food is delicious!! You need to go here!
I've been visiting New Rebozo for almost 20 years now and it is consistently excellent. Chef Paco brings so much love and flavor to his dishes, and treats his customers like family. It is always my birthday celebration spot, that's how much I love it.
Owner Chef is aware of the lighting issues which led me to using my phone to read the menu. Of bigger concern was the poor service - The restaurant was neither crowded nor slammed. Patrons came in at a nice pace. We waited to be seated, we waited for menus, we waited to place a beverage order, our dinner order was timely. Our desert order was never offered/requested/taken. What we waited for the most. The check.
The food is wonderful.
My adult beverage was excellent.
Our water glasses were kept full
Not an easy feet for my family
It was delightful.
Very disappointed in the food...service was good to great, but the food was super bland. Not at all impressive. I would not go back. I'm used to Mexican food on the West Coast, and this place would never survive there. Also there as an incredibly loud party in the same room with us...classless and real jerks. The staff did finally tell them to "please tone it down," but that took too long. Just not that good a place, and where it is there are lots of better alternatives.
Great food and friendly staff. Drinks are delicious!! The fiesta mole is highly recommended.
