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.

This was not a pleasant dining experience. Very slow service .... food was just so so! Along with a problem trying to use Open Table with my reservations and checking in with it at the restaurant!

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.

Pinstripes has become our new go-to restaurant. The food is delicious, we order different items all the time and are never disappointed. In addition to the great eats, the service is outstanding. The servers are never far away if you need something, and not annoyingly in your face either; they have a great balance. This is one of the bright spots in Oak Brook. We like to come to Pinstripes, chill with a glass of wine, have a nice dinner and relax. And they never rush you out which is nice too.

Food was good-staff was delightful! The only down side was our table was inside (as requested) but we got huge gusts of wind when the outside doors were open. Frankly, it was actual a cooling "breeeze" and we decicded not to move and just agreed to catch our napkins when they took off in the breeze!

I have never been disappointed with Pinstripes as I have in my last 2 visits

Ordered each time the bottomless soup and salad combo. No croutons, no mozzarella, lobster bisque was salty and watery.

In the salad was corn - since when and why????

So disappointed

I will NOT go back to Oakbrook Pinstripes anymore

Food was good but not great. Enjoyed the brunch buffet much better than the full menu. Prices were what we expected. Service was excellent. I would go again but in a much more relaxed attire. The bowling and bocce are the stars of the place and thus teh noise is a little loud for conversation.
