    This is not a large restaurant, indoors. The ceilings are very high. It is a noisy place. We (group of 6) had a booth of young women behind us who were all enjoying themselves quite a bit and were incredibly noisy. One of our group got up and spoke to them and asked them if they could tone it down a bit, as one of our group is hard of hearing and wasn't able to hear any conversation. The food was very good (appetizers, entrees and dessert). Our server was attentive and personable. Delivery of food timing from the kitchen was fine, also.

    I’m hoping this place sticks around for awhile but everything was excellent. I only ate appetizers but the sliders were amazing, goat cheese balls were creamy and nicely sweetened. My friend raved about the shrimp tacos. Drinks were nice. I had a margarita and thought it could be a bit sweeter but a nice mix.

    We just moved to Naperville and went downtown for an early Sat dinner. The food did not disappoint. The Chilean sea bass was delicious and had a really nice carrot sauce with it that was perfection! The shrimp and grits and the flank steak special of the month were also enjoyed by my family. Our sever Will was cordial and patient with our various random requests and the manager Alyson was very welcoming and took some time to chat with us and give us some suggestions of places to walk around while we got our ice cream after dinner! They also have some great sides and a couple of vegetarian-friendly items (we had sweet potatoes fries and Japanese mushrooms), so we will be coming back with our in-laws in a few weeks! It is on the pricier side despite the casual atmosphere so just be prepared but great for a nice family dinner outing! :)

    I love the food at Bev's. Executive Chef Nadia makes innovative, creative and delicious food. The food is definitely 5 stars. Angie was our server, engaging and sweet. We sat in the dining room, and there also is an outside patio and bar area. This is not my 1st time as a patron, we love brunch here as well. On this visit, the service was dreadfully slow from receiving our cocktails to the food service. Even receiving our check warranted me getting up from our table to find our server to request the bill. I never experienced this lack of attention before at Bev's. We were the only table in the dining room for three-quarters of our time there. The patio was not full to capacity either. Off night? Last night our party of four shared the goat cheese balls and the lobster bao. The goat cheese balls were the perfect crispy bite with a creamy cheese filling. The lobster bao was ridiculously delish. The poached lobster on that little steamed bun...amazing! There was a little confusion, tho, when I asked for another bao so each of us could get a bun since there were only three on the plate. Usually, restaurants will up the items on a plate for an additional charge to give each diner a portion. Unfortunately, we were told the lobster couldn't be split so we paid $22 for another full lobster bao plate when it was brought to the table instead of one piece. I don't get that. The four of us had the monthly special, the grilled flat iron steak. The steaks were all cooked medium rare as requested. I enjoyed the steak flavor, the chimichurri sauce and the potato croquette. Very good! My friend's steak wasn't warm, tho, so he wasn't happy. He should've sent it back, but service was slow so... We also ordered the roasted carrots side dish, perfectly roasted and sweet. I wish I didn't share that dish. Yum. Like I said, the food and Chef Nadia are definitely 5 stars. Our experience this time was subpar as far as service and attention.

    The food was great. The restaurant decor and ambience didn’t match the food level. Everyone was very nice, but it wasn’t fun. It was also very hot in there. Granted the hottest day of the year, but the a/c didn’t work. Servers tried really hard and were nice. The extra deep booths are awkward to serve and bus. Our table was always full of used plates and glasses. Food was great. Just not what I was expecting for a celebration.

    Location is on a busy corner which we found fun as we ate outside on the patio. Our waiter was young and a little green. Service was OK. Food was pretty good. Felt the price of the food was good for the quality but a little high for the ambience outside. The inside bar looks really fun.

    For the money, serving sizes are very sparse. My filet mignon was literally charred hard on the outside and was well done inside- but ordered medium. My wife’s salmon was also over cooked. The waitress offered to have the plates remade but after dinner commitment limited our time. She mentioned that she told the manager who told her that they would come to our table to talk to us about it. Manager never showed up.

    We had brunch on Mother's Day, so the place was pretty busy. It was quite loud and at our corner table, it was pretty hard to have a conversation because of the noise level. The food was very good, but some of the items were pretty pricey for what it was. A shared plate of goat cheese balls only contained 4 olive-sized cheese balls for $12. Tasty but not worth the price! The short rib Benedict was a table favorite and very filling per two of our guests and a good value. The steak BLT was also tasty, but a sandwich with a side of truffles fries was $24. Again, good, but not worth the price. We all had cocktails and they were moderately priced and very enjoyable.

    Our food was excellent - two salmon entrees and a salad - and the cocktails were also very good. Our server, Eric, was very knowledgeable and attentive. When we first arrived, there was a very loud party in the bar, but they left about 10 minutes after we arrived. A very nice dinner in downtown Naperville, as is usual when we visit Bev's.
