Great place to dine for a date or with a significant other.
Great food & great service! Will come again.
The fool was excellent and we really enjoyed the band on Saturday night, the Rhythm Rockets!
Great music, great service, good food, pricey.
Interesting that OpenTable believes we were seated and ate at Pete Miller's! We arrived about 5 minutes early for our 7:30 reservation. We had parked in the garage and walked ourselves because valet was stacked up 10 cars deep outside. I was feeling nervous, but hey, we had a reservation! We should be fine. Gave our name to one of the four young ladies at the desk, and she said it should be a few minutes. After standing there for a few minutes, it became quite clear there were a lot of unhappy people waiting around. I overheard a young man say to one of the hostesses that he and his date had a 7pm reservation- they'd been waiting for 35 minutes!!! I looked at my husband, pulled out my smartphone and called another restaurant around the corner that we'd always wanted to try anyway. They had one 2 top they could hold for us and it ended up being the best meal we'd had in a long time. So, thank you Pete Miller's for helping us discover a new restaurant! And in the future, there are other places to get a steak where a reservation means you'll be seated in a reasonable amount of time. As to the seating confirmation email that came through at 9:30pm that evening... maybe some poor person who'd been waiting benefited from our reservation. I don't know what to suggest- work on your reservation management?
Made a reservation two weeks prior to visit. Arrived on time . Shuffled aside for 20 minutes while others
arriving after us were being seated. Complained to hostess who talked to asst manager.
Asst manager immediately escorted us to a table and was apologetic for delay and made
sure we were taken care of by wait staff. Evening then went well. Service, drinks,music and
food were all very good. Will return on our next visit to Northwestern University.
Great jazz music at night friendly customer oriented atmosphere
The food was excellent from the appetizer to the steak. The waiter was attentive and friendly. Unfortunately. one of the reasons we go to Pete Miller's is to hear the live jazz. I asked for seats near the music and was refused. We were given a table next to a large table of people who were having a great time and made it impossible to listen to the music. When we arrived and when we left, there were many tables near the music. It is incomprehensible to me why you would hire a musician and then refuse to allow a customer who came to hear her sit where she could be heard. I don't know if it was an incompetent employee or a corporate policy, but I was considerably annoyed.
The food was very good! Service was excellent and very helpful and friendly. We ordered two hot fudge sundaes but they were very skimpy with the hot fudge. Only a dribble. I’d order extra on the side next time.
Fantastic place in Evanston. Live quartet and a great meal!
High marks for presentation and ambiance. Salmon and prawns excellent. Jumbo shrimp with orange sauce/risotto over cooked.
Good food and music, and I appreciated the waiter's recommendation on choices for the crusted filet. However, don't count on an Open Table note to get the message across that it's a special occasion. And I didn't appreciate the shilling (new happy hour menu, rewards program) in the middle of the meal. If you really must do that, save it for the end.
Food was incredibly good! Live music was awesome. However, despite being a repeat customer, I always feel that the prices are much too expensive. The place was empty on Friday night of a holiday weekend, and cost is likely the issue.
Good food and reasonable portions for the price. Excellent service and staff.
We were spending the night in Evanston and looking for a place to relax while enjoying some great food and drink. We found that and more at Pete Miller's. Live jazz was a plus, apparently they have that nightly. And while we were seated very close to their intimate stage, the music was never too loud for us to enjoy conversation. Everything about the experience there was top notch, from the service to the food to the music.
The jazz band for the evening was excellent. My friend and I enjoyed our dinner. Her crab cake was moist and well flavored. The lobster bisque was perfect. If you have space, get the carrot cake. Our server was non-existent for the first 45 minutes of the meal and I had to ask others to locate him to have water glasses refilled and wine. He did redeem himself at the end and was personable.
We’ll definitely go for second time! Delicious food, friendly service, blues music. Recommend Garlic Mashed Potato & Rib
The food was overpriced. Dissatsfaction is the result of poor preparation. The prawns were so dry I could not pull the meat from the shell. The lime tart crust could not be cut with the side of a fork. Will not return.
Wonderful food and music. Expensive but good.
Service was very attentive and food was terrific: enjoyed the calamari appetizer, lamb chops, filets, and an array of veggies: asparagus, broccoli, sautéed spinach and mushrooms. We asked to be seated away from the music to enable conversation which was perfect. Great music yet we could talk over it. The only little thing was that the nook we were in was a little cold for half of our party, but it didn't mare the good time we had. We'll be back.
Great food great service and a great time
Both steaks were not cooked to temperature. They were very accommodating though and didn’t charge for either.
Generally good but our server was somewhat mistaken in explaining the offerings available
Excellent music, service, and food that was worth every penny.
Waiter was over worked with too many tables, 15-20 minutes to get a drink at table, food came out at different times, restaurant was freezing, they had space heaters setup everywhere.
The place had a foul odor as well. Been going there for years, worst experience yet, chalking it up to an off night
I was disappointed in the service and food. Don’t remember it being bad on previous visits years ago. My $52 bone in ribeye was too chewy and lacked flavor, and my girlfriend’s scallops had a very bland sauce. Our seafood tower didn’t have $42 worth of seafood, either. Unfortunately, our server was not very attentive to our needs, either. He’d drop off food not realizing we needed new table settings or appetizer plates ...we had to ask for everything. Too bad. The ambiance and jazz band was excellent, but the food and service should match.
Pete Miller's is one of my favorite places to go with another couple or small group because you can talk to each other and the food is reliably good. However, they have changed their menu and 2 of my favorites are gone - seafood salad and hot fudge sundae. And their prices have taken a noticeable climb.
I came to celebrate my guy’s birthday. Our server were very attentive as soon as we arrived, but after we expressed that we needed time to review the menu the service level dropped. The place was not very busy, but our server walked by us several times. We were not told of any special menu items or recommendations which happens at every fine steakhouse I have been too. We called the restaurant (while dining there) to request out drinks. The manager handled our request immediately and with great kindness. I would definitely visit again because we enjoyed the ambiance, especially the live jazz, and the food.
Excellent service and fabulous, delicious food! A true “Chicago Steakhouse” ambiance. Fun live jazz.
We are always the last to leave but they are never rude or kick us out...thank you Pete Millers for great service!
We enjoyed our dinner at Pete Miller's restaurant Wednesday, Feb. 21st for our 31st anniversary. Pete Miller's has been a "go-to" for many a nice date. The food was good--meat tender and sides tasty. Our service was very good, and the atmosphere is always nice, even for a Wednesday evening. My only complaint is that the dessert was disappointing. I ordered a Key Lime Pie that was like a crusted pudding--not a firm consistency--and had several inches of cream on top hiding the 1/2 inch of key lime flavor. Otherwise, the meal was very satisfactory. We will be there again.
Went to celebrate friends B-Day. The service was great. We took advantage of the prix fix for restaurant month in the northshore. The meals was great, but the key lime pie meringue was way tooooo sweet.
Great place, live music is a nice touch on top of good food with good service
We loved our meal! The sauce on the bacon wrapped scallops was perfection. Loved the filet duo, generous portions of the delicious crust. The frites were so caramelized I was convinced they were fried in beef tallow.
Waiter was very good.
Had reservations for valentines dinner at 7:00. Arrived a little early and after waiting 10 minutes in the car for valet the manager came out and said there was no valet available at the moment because there were too many cars !!?? Husband dropped me off and went out searching for street parking which he found about 4 blocks away. After a cold walk back we were seated in the back room next to an exit door where you could feel the cold wind blowing through. No wonder that room was empty. Requested another table and were seated near the band because they pulled a 4 Top apart so we were basically sitting 2 inches away from strangers. Initial service was awful.. took about 15 minutes to put in our drink order. Food was average.. weak wine list. Just a disappointment for a special expensive dinner. Won’t be going back but the band was good!
Freezing cold!!!! Detracted from everything else. Food and service was great. Just too cold to enjoy it.
My wife and I enjoyed a superb meal during the week.
The entree, dessert, cocktail and wine excellent. We had a great female server who was right on target with her suggestions regarding entree choice and dessert.
All restaurant staff very nice including the valet.
Nice jazz ensemble and great ambiance.
This restaurant is a great asset to the Evanston area.
Our food was over cooked and some side dishes were warm not hot. The waitress offered to take our food back but I didn’t want to wait or have the wast.
Excellent service, great food. A go-to spot for the special occasion meals in our life.
