What can I say, never a disappointment! I received the salmon special and it was delicious! Nick and both Brads gave incredible service, per usual, and it always feels like family when I go to Chrissoulas. I, truly had a fun and beautiful night w/ great drinks to match.

Wonderful meal. The spread apps and cerviche were excellent. Highly recommend the Greek Chicken and save room for the Bread Pudding dessert. Great time with the family. We will be back. One of our new favorites.

The gyros weren’t real gyros. We’re disappointed with the smoked meat we weren’t used to. The lemon soup was not what they generally served in Greek town. It had lumpy tight noodles in it and wouldn’t order it again. The lamb special was mostly all bone. The potatoes were great

My husband and I have eaten here many times, throughout the summer nearly weekly. We began to have inconsistency in the preparation of our order which was the same dish every single time. I spoke to the owner who was receptive to my feedback yet minimized my comments.
Last night we sat at the bar for the first time to eat. Not only was the service spotty as the bartender had to attend to those at the bar as well as the restaurant as a whole by himself, but then said to us he would take our order after taking the order of other customers who sat down at the bar after us. Once our food arrived we then had to flag the bartender down for utensils . I was disappointed to discover the dish we always order was no longer on the menu. What I ordered was tasty but not well prepared. The octopus appetizer was a small portion no less $18! & was NOT grilled but sautéed & served chopped in pieces on top of the Greek salad which was not a true salad as there was no lettuce. When my meal was served it came on a small plate making it tricky to cut & eat. $26 for what I was served was mind blowing. I left much salad behind….far too much raw vegetable once the meager octopus was gone. At Chrissoulas prices I expected a stellar meal & service. My husbands dish was delicious but we sadly left stunned & having been loyal customers are now saying goodbye!

Some really interesting dishes that are unique; especially to the Lake County area. Good food, good service, nice setting. Duck fat fries were awesome! Will definitely go back and try some other dishes.

Delicious meal full of fresh flavors. Shared a skordalia dip with pita as a starter with my friend. We also decided to share a Greek salad and Avgolemeno soup b/c there were so many things we wanted to try! For our mains, I had the Roasted Branzino which I ate every bite of. So delish. My friend had the Moussaka. Also well prepared! Creative cocktail menu. Restaurant was full on a Thursday evening which is a good sign. Will definitely be going back!

We had a wonderful dinner. The only gripe we had was there towards the end of the night, a group of 8 people stood behind us and were extremely loud. They only had drinks and stood there and chatted away. Unfortunately, we chose to end our night because we couldn’t hear one another at our table.

Octopus app was very good.
Burger was very good.
Fish and chips was not up to our past experience with your restaurant.
The fish was definitely over fried ……… burnt for sure. Both plates should have been sent back to kitchen.
Two pieces of bream were placed on top of a massive amount of fires that we all thought the kitchen was just trying to get rid of by the end of the night. Way way way too many fries that were burnt!

The best Greek restaurant in Chicago land. The food is always fresh and tasty. You would love everything on the menu. Oysters deal on Fridays and Saturdays is the best.
