Make Room For Truman
Probably the best Houlihans experience I’ve had
We had a large group for dinner and on the whole it was good. I always felt very rushed by the service, like they v wanted to feed you and get you out quickly. I also ordered salmon, med to rare, it came very well done and dry. It seemed our waiter didn’t ‘hear’ or want to acknowledge special requests. My drink order was all wrong too. App orders were very small. The restaurant was just OK nothing I was very impressed with.
Outstanding Thanksgiving dinner.
Fantastic food at reasonable prices and wonderful servers.
Went on Thanksgiving Day. Great food, wonderful server, Erica, will go back soon.
Our local go to place for dinner. We've been here half a dozen times and have come away satisfied every time. Both the food and service have been very good and we enjoy the layout and overall atmosphere of Truman's. Would gladly recommend if you happen to be in the Park Ridge area.
Great place to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. Awesome food and signature cocktails.
We visited MRFT for our Thanksgiving meal. We were greeted immediately, seated promptly, and our server came right over. We started with a decanter of shared cocktails and a starter. The prix fixe meal was full of great choices, and abundant servings. We had a second round of cocktails, each choosing a different one, and they were all fabulous. I had the Park Ridge Tea and it was just perfection. The service was just right, as has been our previous experience there. Our server, whose name I can’t recall, was attentive and engaging, but not intrusive. She was quick to fill water glasses and anticipate needs, but also left us alone to engage in our conversation. All in all, a great experience. We will be back.
We went for Thanksgiving dinner but this was our second time dining at this restaurant. Staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The pace of the three course meal was great - not rushed and allowed us to relax for the holiday. The meal was pretty good. My son enjoyed his prime rib! Stuffing was dry and we missed having some sort of bread or roll like we would at a typical Thanksgiving meal. Value was good compared to most other restaurants for Thanksgiving. We would do the holiday again here!
Service was excellent. Food was excellent. I recommend trying the smoked Old Fashioned and, obviously, the Truman as well. We will definitely be coming back!
This was such an amazing dining experience! This was my first time there. I was meeting with my interns for my non profit, Empowering People with Invisible Chronic Illness-The EPIC Foundation. My interns are high school students and I wanted them to have a wonderful time during our meeting. I accomplished my goal and more. The food was delish! My daughter took my leftovers. Lol The ambience was so fresh and fun! The manager came to speak with me personally. Everything, from the front host, to our last desert was perfect! Mark, our server, was so impressive! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Dr. Karen
Nice place to meet up for drinks and catch up with friends. I only tried the French dip the dip was a bit salty but otherwise good. Service was good.
The service the atmosphere the good all were fantastic!
Everything was really good. Nice menu, service and food.
One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. Service excellent, and food was creative, innovative and delicious! Amazingly good
We ended up with 14 people for dinner, had to make several changes to the numbers and the restaurant was very accommodating. Service was very good, food was excellent, would definitely try again next time in the area.
We had a great time. The food was amazing. Surprisingly, we liked the main course MORE than the Truman but perhaps our expectations for the Truman were too high. Had a lot of fun with the staff as well. Great place to try for something new.
Great spot and glad I found it. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Will be back when I’m in town!
Smoky old'fashioned is simply the best crafted bourbon cocktail around. Starters included their yummy cornbread and the cauliflower grilled wedge. The short rib burger was so lean, delicious and done to order. Had the creamed corn side which is not your ordinary creamed corn. Love this place and the service!
Great food, service and atmosphere. Only drawback, not a single dark beer among their drafts. No porters, no stouts, not even a brown ale. Y’know, not everyone likes IPA’s.
Our server was excellent. Only complaint is that one of our guests is on a restricted diet and asked if his entree didn’t have any tomatoes in it. Unfortunately it came smothered in tomatoes. The wait time to get a new entree seemed excessive. Otherwise, we enjoyed the experience. Great apps and tots!
Great place, wonderful food and very attentive wait staff. We keep going back again and again.
Great service. But it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. I asked 3 times to lower heat. We all are and left. Very unenjoyable to spend 100 and rush out.
I have written a review before for this place. Again, amazing! We had a wonderful time and our server, Christine, was wonderful. This will certainly be put into rotation.
We all enjoyed the restaurant. The food was high quality and Jennifer was energetic and helpful. The rotisserie chicken and short rib burgers were yummy. The homemade hot apple cobbler with ice cream was delicious. Although we didn't have cocktails that night, people were enjoying the punch bowl drinks and smoked old fashioned. Definitely going back!
Excellent food. Lots of spirits, wine, beer and cocktails to choose from. The pork chop was fantastic. Truman is tasty but I'd be interested in trying other desserts. Absolutely will return.
Nice atmosphere and very good service.
A first time visit of a recommendation from our daughter. Did not disappoint, exceeded her recommendation. Cindy, our waitress was excellent in menu favorites and conversation. We will be back soon. Nothing negative about it. food was generous and well prepared.
Fantastic!!! Best restaurant in town! Ask for Cindy. She is a great. Food is perfect. Not overly seasoned. Reasonably priced too.
Best restaurant in Park Ridge!! Brought a friend who is visiting from London and she loved the food, tea and staff. We have been there before and really enjoy speaking with Casey who in my opinion is the BEST restaurant hostess I have ever met!! Planning on entertaining over the upcoming holiday season and bringing more friends to Make Room for Truman!
Great overall experience. The only quibble was that we had a 715 reservation and weren't seated until 745. But food was very good, service otherwise was excellent, and Truman is really a major addition to dining choices in the Park Ridge area.
Absolutely delicious food--fresh and and tasty. Server was was very professional and experienced, and worked hard to make sure I had a good experience even though I had to avoid dairy. We'll be back!
Our server Damien was very nice but overly attentive. He interrupted us several times to pour water. He even came by before our meal was served and cleaned our table. It was weird. We had not had any food yet, the table was clean.
From the moment we walked in the door, we saw that this restaurant has it together. They acknowledged we were there to celebrate a birthday, presenting the birthday girl with a handwritten notecard and after dinner, a complimentary dessert.
Unique cocktails served in old fashioned cut glass highball glasses. Great music.
Our server Kyle was fantastic! He was friendly, helpful, and provided outstanding service. Thank you, Kyle!
We will definitely be back!
This was our first visit and we really enjoyed it. Service was excellent and the food was quite good. I definitely recommend the rotisserie chicken. We loved the cozy and vibrant atmosphere. We will be back!
Looooved this place! If I lived in Chicago it would be my regular date night and girls’ night out place. Deeelicious! Try the Truman salad, the pork chop, poblano potatoes au gratin, and the Dutch baby pancake.
Everything was wonderful! Service, food, ambiance, everything.
Service was outstanding
Was in town with colleagues for a conference, came upon this on Opentable and was intrigued. To our delight, Tuesday’s are half off bottles of wine. Our server was friendly and very helpful. The tots are divine (I wish they sold the paprika ketchup!). I had the pork chop and it was so tender and juicy. My colleagues had the cauliflower steak and rotisserie salad. We all loved our choices. The ambiance was lovely. Note- there’s much more to the menu than what is on OT. You can download the full menu from their website. I’ll definitely come back when I am in town.
Shrimp appetizer was exceptional!
First visit, read other customer reviews, not disappointed, friendly staff care of diners, good portions, great flavors worth the visit, would reccommend
