The food and service was incredibly outstanding .. not to the great selection of wines. We celebrated out 32nd anniversary and wouldn't think of doing it anywhere else. We celebrated here last year too.

service was terrible. ordered a drink and after waiting for it for 20 minutes asked about it. server said oh yeah what did you want again? had to ask for the plates to be cleared. then paying the bill took 20 minutes as he could not get the check correct. when i received the bill it was wrong. rather than wait another 20 minutes i took the bill which was seperated incorrectly and paid it. when i stopped on the restroom on the way out it did not have any pAper towels.

We ate outside on a quiet night and enjoyed the ambiance of the patio. The food was good - I tried the Italian jambalaya, which was risotto with shrimp, sausage and grilled chicken. A little spicy for me, but tasty. They used to give you bread with your meals, but cut that out to save money I guess 😞. We were unfortunately disappointed with the service. The server seemed to be rushing us - can I enjoy my wine a few minutes before ordering? We ordered a salad, which she forgot. We decided to get dessert and we could see the server bringing it to our table. She stopped to clear some plates off another table and carried our dessert away with the dirty dishes. Came out a couple minutes later with it - ?? It was a very slow night, so this was unexpectedly poor service.

Took our kids out to eat on the outside patio. We played trivia while we ate and then had a few games of bowling after dinner. Our kids are 5 & 7 and they loved it!

I wanted to compliment the host that helped us to move our reservation outside so we could both play bocce and have dinner to celebrate my friend's birthday. She made it all happen with such a great attitude and helpfulness. Our servers were also great taking pictures and having bringing out a birthday dessert.
Thanks to all for a successful birthday celebration!

Our server was excellent! Said he was new.

Food was good, a little pricey. Nice that they had both gluten free and Vegan menus. Offering a Vegan dessert would be appreciated.

We have dined at Pinstripes on several occasions, and one factor that keeps us coming back is consistency. Food is excellent, servers are friendly and attentive. Depending on the day and time of day, the noise level can be high, but we had a late lunch, and conversation was easy.

Food, service and ambiance was great. However, there is a huge miscommunication on their website and menu with regards to pricing for beverages on their Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Led to a huge increase in our bill that we did not expect and brought the miscommunication to the manager who did not acknowledge anything...

We have been to Pibstripes often. The service is always attentive, the good delicious.

Just discovered Saturday brunch and love the lobster crostini.

Only one downside: at peak times, the noise level is high, so we usually our lunches early or later in the afternoon.

Not only did we have espresso in our mimosas (I guess they store the glasses next to the machine) but I found a hair baked into my meal and my friend’s gluten free pizza was not gluten free - she has celiac, informed the waiter of this condition, and ordered off the special gluten free menu, but was very sick following the meal. Although the manager talked to us and was apologetic about it all, I will not return to this restaurant ever again.

With family in from out of town, we made reservations for lunch and bowling. Well. our bowling reservation was totally messed up. The food was good and our waiter provided good service. We left without being able to bowl and not wanting to go back- poor service on the bowling side. Bummer!

I have been here before. So I know they had great food. This guy has stopped in for some appetizers with some friends. Even at this time the appetizers we're great. The service was a little slow. It took a while to get my bill after I had finished. This is my 5th time coming to this restaurant in Oakbrook Illinois.
