We were disappointed. After being told all about buying local & seasonal changes, 2 items on the menu were no longer available when we went to order. We were told they were out of season. Take them off the menu!!! Food was good but not exceptional. The seasonal Old Fashion was amazing. Good job on that.

Our food was first delivered to the wrong table where it sat for awhile. Then it was brought to us and obviously arrived cold without replating or heating or anything. The hanger steak was cold, tough and chewy and the potatoes were cold. The meatball appetizer were very bland but the serving size was good.

The restaurant looked nice and the staff was courteous but in the end the food wasn’t good so we will not return.

First time here! Food was super yummy...had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. Our service was just "ok". Our appetizer never came out and it turned out it went to the table next to us. We feel like thy should have knocked some money or something to compensate. We did get it shortly after but then our main meals also took awhile to get to us.

You owe it to yourself to dine here if only to experience a modern dining establishment that KNOWS how discretely deploy sound-dampening devices. You know that "Yes-we're-three-feet-apart-and-under-40-and-you're-practically-yelling-but-I-still-can't-make-it-out" problem when you dine out? That doesn't happen here. You can actully dine with friends and converse and be social. Who knew? Food is very good. Service is better.

This is my favorite restaurant in Elmhurst because of the flavors and the foods. A culinary treat from drinks to dinner that is date night and friend get-together price friendly! The mixologist drink menu alone is worth the stop at the bar. But last night I had the most delicious (delightful, amazingly hood) salmon dish that I have ever had. Popcorn? Oh no...a delectable array of tastes on perfectly cooked salmon. The chef combines textures and flavors that make you want more. The wait staff is friendly and makes you feel at home. If you want your taste buds to thank you, you want to eat here.

One fifty one kitchen is an outstanding restaurant. Every dish that my girlfriend or i have tried there has been the epitome of a balanced dish. Beautiful presentation with all of the dishes as well. Perfect portions. Their booze is great and the quality of their drinks is synonymous to their food. Definitely a place worth checking out.

The atmosphere and food were excellent. The service, on the other hand, was a little slow. They weren't that busy, either. Our appetizers came out at the same time as our food. We sent back the appetizers and they took the apps off our bill. Our server was very bubbly and helpful.
I would try again sometime just to see if the service is better.

The food and service were excellent but the portions too small for the price. Also, unfortunately, although the restaurant was quite empty on a Saturday night, a couple with a small loud child was seated directly next to us. This was not necessary since there were many other seats available.

Farm to table authentic original cuisine! Chef Evan Sumrell is all about sustainability and it shows in his creative genius! From the marinated olives, lobster pasta, fried chicken and desserts, it is a seasonal culinary delight to eat there! Cocktails are fabulous as well. Whether you go for a drink and appetizer, or stay for the entire meal, you will not be disappointed! The staff are friendly and helpful. It is worth taking the train out of Chicago!

We went for ‘Lobsterfest’ and both ordered the lobster roll. It was delicious, but there was barely any filling - especially for $22 each! Regardless, it was extremely tasty! I just wish there was more of it. Our server was really nice and I loved the decor! This was our first visit. Due to the cost and lack of food, I’m not sure we’ll be back. Totally my kind of place, too.
