    Everything was appreciated as a true diversion from stressful life. It could use a greater variety of coffees. A real jazz house would serve a coffee experience and a music experience.

    Hey NonnyResponded on November 26, 2022Hi James. We're happy that Hey Nonny could float away a little of the stress of the rest of the world. That, after all, is the meaning of Hey Nonny Nonny -- the feeling when you've let go of your troubles. We love your coffee idea, and we'll do it if we get more interest. Thank you!

    We went for the Sunday jazz brunch and LOVED it! Food was great, service was great and of course the music was wonderful! Cost was slightly higher than I would like, but for the music to be included - rather than paying extra for a ticket - was well worth it. Menu was not extensive, but everything we had was very tasty. Will absolutely be back soon!

    Hey NonnyResponded on November 26, 2022Thanks for the lovely comments, Amy! The brunch is always a blast.

    A tad bit pricy. Had to send back fries, they were warm. Price should match the food. Fries should always be made to order, never served warm/cold.

    We went for a birthday dinner and got a mixture of dishes. We ordered 4 main dishes plus one of the specials. We also got 3 appetizers. Not a single dish was seasoned. Not a grain of salt was used in the preparation of any of the items. Brussel sprouts were just ok, Croquettas had a bland mushy meat mixture inside, with a side of chipotleish mayo. The star of the appetizers however was the octopus. The two one-inch pieces of the octopus arrived accompanied by 6, extra-long fingerling potatoes, on a bed of the same mayo. The corn was strangely ok!($18 for the potato octopus) Nothing was seasoned. Let's move on to the main courses. Two short ribs were ordered, topped with what looked like chimichurri...zero flavors. Diver Scallops you ask? One scallop is sliced three ways, and another slice is from a separate scallop. Resting on a bed of nothing. The burger was just ok. The pasta was spicy, and tomatoey so that's ok, but the shrimp were so misshaped that it looked so bizarre. Now onto the amazing special of the day. The pride and joy of the chef, who spent hours debating what to create to wow his clientele? One undercooked(not al dente as our server stressed would arrive) stuck together, messy slop, with mushrooms and overdone beef. You guessed it no flavor! To the tune of $400 voila.

    Hey NonnyResponded on November 26, 2022Anna. We're very sorry - and surprised - that you had such a terrible experience. You had one of our best and most attentive servers at your table and you didn't mention a word of your troubles to her. We care a LOT about our food, our service, and making customers happy and it doesn't help anyone to appear to enjoy your evening (we noticed) and then to report so many issues (inaccurately in our view) days later. We wish you the best.

    This place is smoothly operated. Top notch service, food was incredible (butternut squash soup with pesto was my fav) and amazing cocktail menu. We ordered several rounds of Nonny’s Revenge which comes with a very dramatic presentation..you gotta see for yourself! Will definitely return.

    My husband and I went for an early Friday dinner and took advantage of live music and Happy hour specials. It wasn’t crowded when we got there and were were not rushed. We enjoyed a drink and music and then ordered our dinner! W The food was excellent! Squash soup was outstanding and the triple cut pork chop was very tasty! We enjoyed this restaurant and will be back! The restaurant filled up quickly after happy hour for dinner and evening comedy show.

    Made a reservation for dinner before a show. Food was delicious, service was great, and the price was higher but fairly decent for the quality. Braised short ribs were amazing! Pasta had great flavors with a slight to moderate spicy kick to it. Staff were friendly and responsive.

    Server was very attentive and knew we needed to be finished in time to see a show. We got our food quickly, but he coursed it enough that it was pleasant and not rushed. Everyone enjoyed their food. Scallops and risotto were ok, but chicken and salmon were really great. Nice to eat there and be able to walk 10 steps to see the show.

    Hey NonnyResponded on November 6, 2022Thanks, Ellen! We're happy that you enjoyed the full Hey Nonny experience -- a dinner in the Bistro and then a show in the Venue. Joe Robinson was great that night!

    We had a delicious dinner at Hey Nonny! We love their new menu - so many great choices! My husband had the salmon and I had the scallops. Our friends ordered the brick chicken and the chopped salad. We shared the brussel sprouts for an appetizer! We all loved everything we ordered! The Nonny's Revenge cocktail with the smoke was so good! Highly recommend dining at Hey Nonny!

    My wife asked for her soup and salad to come out together with my entree but she got hers right after drinks arrived. Our waitress took the soup back and comped us dessert. My pasta was very good. It was a little too loud and and high tops were not what we expected. Next time, we may eat outside.

    Our server made the experience amazing. I forgot his name, but he had braces and was so great! The food is over priced and mediocre. I’m from Chicago, so maybe I have higher expectations. The brunch menu was very small with zero lunch-ish things on it. It was all mainly breakfast foods.

    Hey Nonnys never disappoints! Menu is locally sourced fresh food. I’ve eaten here often and the food is delicious.This time I went with a group to hear live music and enjoy some cocktails and appetizers. The veggie empanadas were hot and delicious. The cocktails were a great value during happy hour and the ambience is perfect. The acoustics are great in the band room as well as the dining room. It was easy to hear the happy hour band in the main dining area and still converse with friends at our table. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. One of my favorite spots in downtown Arlington Heights.

    The venue at hey nonny is very nice and a quaint concert experience. We are dinner and ordered the kids grilled cheese ($9.00, $3.00 for a box chocolate milk) 1 beer, 1 cocktail, brussel sprouts and their burger. All of the food was under seasoned. The grilled cheese was just a piece of cheddar on bread, but my kid liked it fine enough. However the fries on both the kids meal and the burger we're greasy and inconsistently cooked, with some being still hard in the middle and had no salt on them. The burger toppings were delicious, but the meat itself was bland. The brussel sprouts were fine but also cooked unevenly. Lastly, we ordered a plate of scallops during the concert and they were good, but very small (3) for $15.00. Our food server was fantastic though. Knowledge, funny and fast! Would come back for a show and 🍷
