There was a wine tasting going on in the bar/dining room area and it was so noisy we couldn’t even have a loud conversation. If it weren’t for the noise everything else was fine.

Service is superb! We ate during their happy hour. Great deal with draft beers at $4. We had their calamari and fried Brussel sprouts. Both were outstanding. I had their flat bread-bacon, Gorgonzola, green apple, spring greens and loved it. A friend with us had the pork chop and said it was really good. My husband had the charcuterie-pizza and said it was just ok. We sat at a table that was next to the walkway everyone uses to walk to the lobby. There is quite a wind tunnel there which made it cold to sit there. They couldn’t do much so we moved the table back ourselves and that helped a lot. If you are staying at the hotel and don’t want to leave to eat, the food is good and service really good.

Lovely, quiet farm to table restaurant located inside the Oakbrook Hilton. The cocktails were creative and very good. The food was fresh, very tasty and I had enough for leftovers. Service was well paced and allowed for a very relaxed meal. Would highly recommend.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into by coming here as I only looked at the menu. It is situated inside the Hilton hotel too. Our server Anna was great! Very polite and helpful when choosing a wine. The calamari as a starter was one of the best calamari I’ve had in awhile. The scallops were great as well with the corn and bacon. We tried the deconstructed waffle cone for dessert and it did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone and I will definitely be back.

The most outstanding feature of this restaurant was the excellent service we received. It was extremely attentive and friendly. The farm to table food was also very good. We had the salmon, which was prepared very moist, as we requested, that was topped with crispy skin that was excellent. We also had the burger that was made with chopped brisket meat. It was very tender, tasty, and devoid of any fat or gristle. The homemade potato chips were also delightful, but next time we'll order the chips as an appetizer which is then accompanied by blue cheese and another delectable-sounding something else I can't remember right now. We certainly will return to this restaurant.

I went with my family to B. for Sunday Brunch. Brunch starts at 11:00 a.m. and we were there at 10:45 a.m. so thankfully we were able to order off the menu because the Brunch price per person was crazy expensive. Plate portions off the menu were small and the food was very average. There was only a couple of families eating in the dining area where we were, but despite not that many customers the wait staff was slow and disappeared. I got up and got my own coffee. We chose this restaurant because it had high ratings. I will not be going back and I would not recommend it for Sunday breakfast or Brunch.

My husband and I enjoyed B Restaurant. We were seating near the window and the views of the fountains and golf course were so relaxing and calming. Our server was amazing! He was so upbeat and gave us perfect recommendations! I had the blackened salmon and my husband had the lamb chop. The evening, dinner, drinks, service and ambiance were truly wonderful!
We will be back!

We went with family and were pleasantly surprised with the food and the drinks. The cocktail list was very interesting and had a wide variety and the drinks were all delicious. They also had a good list of beers, some local. The food was good, my mom loved the beet salad with salmon and I think the best dish we had was the bacon & Gorgonzola flatbread. The only reason I gave the service 3 stars instead of 5 was the slowness of receiving our check and a to-go container. We were with a 3 year old so trying to get out quickly for everyone's sanity but that was a little tough. In all we'll definitely be back again and have already recommended to friends.

Food and service were exceptional!! I was celebrating a friend's birthday and they brought her a beautifully decorated (and delicious) chocolate cake... and brought me one, too (we are both cancer survivors and said that should be celebrated, too!). The manager came over to check on us and we couldn't rave enough about our wonderful and personable server! The manager was pretty great, too. Highly recommend this restaurant, especially in the spring/summer when the view of the golf course is spectacular. They grow their own garden and you can see it from the restaurant. It's not your typical hotel restaurant and is decorated very nicely and comfortably.

We had so much fun. My wife, kids & I came after Saturday evening Mass. It was a local place that had participated in the taste of Westmont I remembered it. Our waitress was excellent, the food was spot on. My wife had the pork chop with chimichurry sauce (nicely spicey) and I had the Lamb burger which was outstanding. My son went with a side of the mac & cheese with a bowl of the bone marrow soup. Both were great. Did I mention our waitress was excellent. A quality evening from start (blue cheese potato chips) to finish (triple chocolate cake).

Omg. Beyond impressed. Decided to check this place out after seeing they offered gluten free lamb meatballs which sounded amazing plus Andy wanted the venison chili. Service was prompt and courteous and the setting was very romantic. Especially loved the lit-up fountain that we could see through the picture windows. The drink menu was unique and definitely piqued our interest. Despite the cost of the drinks outweighing our meal, it was totally worth it. I had the XOXO which was comprised of patron silver, st germain, and lemon juice. It smelled super tart but the elderflower liqueur balanced the lemon perfectly. Absolutely divine. After that wonderful experience we just had to expand our horizons and try the bourbon sangria. Who’d have thought to pair makers, lemon juice, and malbec?! But it was AMAZING!!!! We will definitely be trying this at home. all of this awesomeness and that was just the drinks! Both dishes were also excellent and exceeded our expectations. Andy’s venison chili was perfectly seasoned with just the right amount of kick to make it interesting but not ward off people who don’t like spice. Same with the lamb meatballs. Tender, saucy, but not too tomatoey and the perfect amount of heat. Can’t say enough about how great everything was here. It’s a must for anyone in the area. be sure to check in because we were even more surprised when we got 20% off immediately just for checking in on yelp! It pays to be social 😉

We were having a dinner meeting to discuss an upcoming banquet we were planning for our high school swim team. While the service was good it took far too long for our food to arrive. Fortunately, we had plenty to talk about while we were waiting. Once the food arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The salmon was cooked perfectly and was a very nice size portion. The beet salad with goat cheese was also quite nice.

It is a beautiful environment with large windows and pleasant scenery. The menu offered interesting and good selections.

The only con is that since the area is so open there is a draft the comes through the entire seating area. So, bring a layer to wear if you eat here.

Despite the hyperbole and marketing designed to make you think this is a special restaurant, it is unfortunately the standard hotel lobby restaurant. Its not bad, its just not a destination restaurant as portrayed. The menu is simply the same old ordinary menu that you'd get in most nice hotels - the food is good but not superior and certainly not interesting. The patrons are families with tired, crying kids and loud trade show attendees. Hence, the restaurant is far from romantic, quiet or even relaxing. The seating is basically in the lobby of the hotel and though there's a wall of windows to look out over the golf course, there's the typical stream of foot traffic of guests / staff going back and forth down the main hallway that disrupt the view. The staff is very nice if you can get their attention, but getting their attention is often difficult, so expect to be largely ignored.

If I was a guest in the hotel, the convenience of the restaurant would make it worthwhile I guess. As a resident in the general area I wish I would've gone to one of the zillion more interesting restaurants with better food and service.

This is not your typical hotel restaurant. The theme revolves around the bees and
honey from the property. All the items are fresh and locally sourced.
I would recommend the salmon and the caesar salad. Very tasty.
Drinks are a little pricey at $10-13. Overall it was very good, the windows
overlook the water and the golf course.

Poor guest service from the start. Sat for 10 minutes before anyone came to the table. Then the entire meal came out at once. For the large check there should have been excellent service but it was extremely poor. When I complained to the manager nothing was done. I asked them to give me a call to speak to the boss and I still have not received a phone call. Never ever going back. Stay away unless you like awful service from staff and manager.
