Visiting friend in area from N.C. although we used to live in Northbrook and ate here many times in past. Good salads. Salmon adequate but overpriced for size of the entree. Friendly service

We ate a delicious meal & the service was excellent. Needless to say this was New Years Eve with many families having a super time, so it was noisy. No problem!

We had excellent service at our bowling lane. We were seated in a private area of the main dining area for dinner. Our waitress was completely unresponsive and never appeared once after our food was served for over 45 min. We always have very good service and food. It was an off night with an underwhelming waitress. We will be back. We know it was this individual not the restaurant as a whole.

I always enjoy my lunches at any Pinstripes because you can count on the food being good. Also, it's a good place to take your department for a celebration!

A busy, busy Friday night visit around the holidays. The whole place was hopping. Nice menu, decent food. Thanks for the half-priced wine bottles!

The bread and pesto served to every table is worth the trip alone! The restaurant is surprisingly cozy and not too noisy - particularly considering it's located in a bowling alley! Eating outside is fabulous - albeit limited by weather. Mozzarella balls delicious!

The food was delicious!! Our server was nice but a bit over the top. We've dined with you many times and he was really trying to sell us on different food items. Didn't seem very genuine about it.

Nice dining area. Salmon was done as requested, medium... excellent! Salad greens were fresh. Good artisan bread strips with pesto oil. Felt rushed with wait staff clearing plates, otherwise a nice place to have a casual dinner.

I am so thrilled that the Burrata and squash salad is back on the menu. Also that the eggplant and goat cheese flatbread made its way to the permanent menu!
We have been loyal diners since day one and we always love dining there.

Servers were very nice, however they took quite a bit of time taking our orders - long gaps between soup, entree and check. We had to get their attention.
So happy the tortilla soup is back on the menu!!

Flatbread soggy with hunks of unmelted cheese on top. Complained to management and they offered to replace it or just take it off the bill. We chose the latter.

This was our first visit to pinstripes for lunch. We have been there many times for dinner, and have always had a good experience. Our lunch experience was not up to our usual dinner experience. The food was overpriced, the service was mediocre, and most importantly the food was just average. I do not think we will return for lunch.

Our friends and I come here almost every Thursday night to sit on the patio - the patio is so beautiful in the summer. They have recently added music on the patio. This past week Julius was the musician and his acoustic guitar was fabulous. We always have bracelet wine and either old fashioned or manhattans. The waitstaff is very friendly. The hummus platter is great and so are the flatbreads. The gnocchi ahi tuna is really good too. We also love the fire pit.

We really love pinstripes. My mom loves the salad. Tonight we had a few issues with our real coming the way we ordered it. But the manager made it right. Our server wasn't the most attentive. But overall we had a nice evening
