I felt everything but the noise level and temperature were perfect. We were seated right off the door and a chilly draft came often. I am hard of hearing and that area also seemed a bit noisy. Waitress and food were great and the room is beautiful.

For god's sake be prepared to walk a long, long, long way to get to this restaurant.
Parking lot very small, not at all the size needed for this restaurant.
Good luck finding parking on the street or in the neighborhoods.
They need to do something about that mini-parking lot, especially on a busy day.

There’s hardly room for improvement at this fine restaurant! From the food and drinks to the great service, ambience and class, it’s our favorite. The outdoor patio is another extension of a nice dining experience when it’s open in late spring into summer and fall.

The food was just ok. We had (3) prime ribs. Pretty tough to chew. Seems the quality of the food went down and the prices went up. We sat in a cold room all by ourselves. The bar area has a nice ambiance.

A wonderful setting just 30 minutes from the western suburbs. The historic building with limestone walls and wooden beams matched the excellent service and delightful food. Pam, our server, made the evening more fun with her stories of the building, knowledge of the menu and good humor. Our dinner group stated that this is one of our favorite restaurants and we look forward to returning to this establishment.

Always our favorite place to bring our guests or just the two of us ! As usual they did not disappoint me! I gave the service a drop in stars as we waited a long time to give our order to waitress ! We actually had to try and get attention a bunch of times and then we also waited a few minutes longer then normal to pay the bill ! I actually went to the waitress stand and stood for a couple minutes and then went to the hostess area to get some One to help us ! Did not effect our overall review ! We love it here at Public Landing and will continue to visit our favorite upscale restaurant .

Tried this restaurant a few times because we like the ambiance, the service is good and prices are reasonable. We walk out each time disappointed in the mediocrity of the food. Despite trying various dishes, we generally describe the experience as “meh”.

I asked for a table by the window, but they put us at a table where there wasn't any light. It was an overcast day, and this restaurant is very dark, when the sun isn't out. They need to put a little better lighting at this particular table, because it just felt blah. I don't mean they should put spotlights on it but just do something to make it more cheery. Also, we were seated right across from a very large and loud table, which made it difficult to talk. My father-in-law is elderly; and, even if he has his hearing aids in, it is difficult for him to be part of the conversation. The food, though, was delicious, and we all enjoyed it a lot. We also had a very nice and attentive waiter.

Great building and interior space. Food was very good. Service was mediocre. I asked our server about the shrimp de jonghe. He said he never tried it. What kind of answer is that? How is your staff supposed to sell menu items if they can't describe it?
