It took 30 minutes for us to get our food then it was mixed with some items we did not pick. Bathroom was a pig sty but our server was sweet. Staff was friendly.

I ordered the scallops which I usually have but they are extremely fishy this time. I don't think I will order them again.

We went to celebrate a 21st birthday!
Other guests acknowledged her not even the servers. Really very disappointed
The meat was so over cooked it was dry and hard to chew and a second bowl took 45 minutes to be brought to our table.
Mixed drinks took a really long time. Oh and refills on drinks was almost impossible? None of the empty dishes or glasses were removed from the table. I literaly had to pile them on to another table.
This place was not very busy. NO ON working has any since of URGENCY. Woman's bathroom was dirty with toilet paper all over and only one toilet working. 5 people and we spent at lease $150.00
VERY DISAPPOINTED

It would have been helpful to have a sign on the door that the air conditioning was broken. It was very hot in the restaurant.

Honestly, I usually love Flat Top Grill but today was just a fail all around. The beef was over cooked and had zero flavor. Overall, the food was just off. The waiter just seemed all over the place. He forgot to bring water a couple of times. I won’t be back for a long time.

Food was good and plentiful, but $70 (with tip) for lunch for 4 adults with no alcohol is a bit steep!

Food ok. Not as good as it used to be. Server was nice but overall service elsewhere was poor or very slow.

It took 35 minutes to serve food after we left our food to get cooked, reason was she said it is vegetarian food need to cook separately so it will take longer then other customer.
Only one server was handling 7 to 9 table and few of the tables had more then 6 people.
For Vegetarian people you should add tofu just like meat at cooking time not to put it in bowl!

If you are missing Flat Top at Belmont & South Port. Go to the Lombard location. Avoid Evanston like the plague!

This was not the fault of Flat Top but the power had to be shut off since someone ran a car into the Comed box. I didn’t like that we had to wait on our food and eat in the dark. Again that’s not Flat Tops fault but there were not accommodations or suggestions made to the customers waiting on their food. I had to ask what’s going on for the waiter to then tell me why the lights just went out. The first thing the waiter should have done after finding out what happened is letting everyone else know what he knew. Also, a discount should have been applied to the bill due to the inconvenience to the customer. I will not be back to this location due to the lack of business professionalism.

The food was awful. The beef I ordered looked and tasted like a hamburger patty. The service was extremely slow as well.

Unfortunately they were running low on the Roti bread that is normally unlimited w/your meal so we were limited to one per person. That was disappointing.

I love this restaurant and location. They never cease to disappoint. Although we came close to closing time, the staff did not make us feel rushed. They were attentive and accommodating. The food was fresh and delicious. I will be a returning customer. Thank you for taking good care of my family and friends!

Went on Father's Day and it was our server's first day. Not a good idea. He tried his best though. We received our appetizers AFTER we got our food! Other servers were telling customers that "due to poor management, we are out of chicken." Food area was very messy. I also saw a server rummaging through someone's bowl with one of those sticks they use.

This is a good place for a quick unique meal. The steak was OK, but the shrimp was good and the bread is amazing. It was very hot in the restaurant though.

Food was ok, several items i did not.place in my mix of things were in my finished bowl. I think a better job of the cooks could.be done to control this.
I didnt like that you couldn't control the amount of protein you can have . Layout is poor and cramed into a small space.

This place was a disaster. It needs a total re-vamp. It was dirty, had fruit flies, and the servers just don’t seem to care. Won’t be going back.

Flat Top Grill has something for everyone. We had vegan, vegetarian and gluten free needs in our party and Flat Top was able to accommodate all of us. The service was friendly and the meal was a great value. I would definitely recommend Flat Top and will definitely come back again.

Went on Open Table and made a reservation for 10:30 P.M. Got to restaurant at 10:20 and was seated immediately. Server took our drink order and we went to pick our items for our bowls. When done we sat down a couple minutes and the server told us to go and pick items for our second bowl right away because the close at 10:30. When we went up there again our bowls from the first trip were still sitting there uncooked. They were the only bowls there. We picked our second bowls out and told them to make them to go. When they finally cooked our bowls they were burnt and tasted terrible.
Why do the take reservations for the same time as they close if they are going to rush you out?...
