Sunday Brunch was good as always, though the number of choices seemed slightly smaller than in the past and empty dishes were not refilled as promptly. (5 minutes of empty dishes versus being refilled before empty in the past). Still not bad, but noticeable to semi-regulars.

The food and outdoor seating were awesome. The service was mediocre. I would recommend this restaurant still, as a family friendly, reasonably priced option, with fabulous outdoor dining and delicious gluten free options.

The waiter brought the WRONG Pepperoni Pizza to our table twice!!! We had ordered a Margarita Pizza for an appetizer. Then our dinner came immediately and could not even enjoy the right pizza. The manager did make a fresh one to take home. We were entertaining guest from out of town and would have liked a better experience!! We sat outside and that was the best part of the whole dinner. We have dined at your Northbrook location MANY times since it opened and have never had a problem!!

Although the pasta dishes were very good, the service outside was VERY slow. Our table for 4 was seated near the bocce court on a quiet Tuesday night. Only 2 tables were seated outside at 7:15pm and still it seemed that they forgot about us. It was beautiful weather though it had sprinkled about 5pm so perhaps the servers assumed they weren't seating outside? This was our first visit and chose Pinstripes based on food recommendations which didn't disappoint but they really need to work on training servers.

2 out of 3 meals were really good....the 3rd meal wasn't bad but certainly wasn't as advertised with very, very little meat in the pasta despite the claim that it would have 3 different types of meat, indicating a healthy amount would be there....the amount was almost imperceptible....from a drink with hair in it, to slow and inattentive service the occasion was nearly ruined....nice venue, and some good food, but service and attentiveness was lacking from beginning to end

We waited for over an hour for our food. There were only four of us, two being children. We never got water refills or were checked in on. Overall, some of the worst service ever.

Best service and meal that I've had in a very long time! Our waitress was excellent and so very friendly. Gavin, the manager in training, was helpful with his food & wine selections and a wealth of I formation about the restaurant as well as Chicago. Can't wait to for the Kansas City Pinstripes to open since it is much closer to me. But I can guarantee that the next time I'm in Chicago I will be dining at Pinstripes!! Thank you so much!!

Excellent food every time. Something for everyone. Happy hour prices are incredible. Outdoor patio is fabulous.

However, the service is inattentive, wait staff impossible to find, and they do not correct orders without several reminders. Water/bus staff has always been good and have tried to track them down. This has happened about 60-75% of the times we’ve come. Please hire more wait staff or train them.

Pinstripes Streeterville offers excellent food at reasonable prices. Wait/Bar Servers are consistently customer oriented. I love having Pinstripes in my Streeterville neighborhood. One of the best views of the River on their outdoor patio.

The biggest issue was that they couldn’t split our bill more than 3 ways. For us, this was problematic because we were in Chicago on business and required to submit individual receipts for reimbursement. Regarding food, our table had mixed feelings overall, but I did enjoy my chicken w/ goat cheese pasta. It was rich, but tasty.

Pinstripes is the best! great atmosphere. No matter where you sit in this restaurant I can guarantee you'll be comfortable. They're food is amazing especially the Italian Jambalaya. They have a good selection of drinks, I highly recommend the Old Fashioned and their whiskey sour. For dessert the S'mores are amazing. The carrot cake is to die for, lastly the caramelized cheesecake is the bomb. Great place!.

Highly recommended for informal dining. Very tasty food, good variety on the menu, friendly and efficient servers, reasonable prices. In good weather, al fresco dining overlooking the water of the Ogden Slip is a big plus.

The happy hour prices are great but you need to be seated in the bar, bowling, outdoor or bocce areas. They don’t tell you that when you check in 😕

Had 3 generations at the table for dinner and every one enjoyed their selections, from file, to ribs to salads. When outside seating was not available the manger set up a nice table inside and offered a complementary appetizer for the table. Service was responsive, timely and excellent.

We were very lucky that it was a nice evening and we were able to sit outside where it was relatively quiet. The late spring/early summer ambience was wonderful and the wait staff were attentive, helpful, but not overbearing. The lobster bisque was delicious. The rest of the meal - good. If you want a lovely place to chat with friends, I highly recommend Pinstripes.

Pinstripes in the Chicago Streeterville neighborhood is an ideal location, i.e., on the Riverwalk, nearby Navy Pier, Ohio Street Beach, bus stops, etc. I loved my caesar salad with the salmon filet. The complementary breadsticks with the delicious pesto/evoo is a special touch for the diner. Bar and Wait Servers are consistently efficient and customer oriented. Highly recommend Pinstripes Streeterville to both tourists and locals.

This restaurant was surprisingly great! I was wondering what kind of food a “bowling/bocce” alley could have. The restaurant was decorated beautifully and the food (and service ) was outstanding. Definitely a return spot. I can see it being a ton of fun with a bunch of people.
