I would come back for the cocktails exclusively. The chicken in my salad was tough and overcooked, I regret not sending it back, but it took approx 45 min. to arrive from when we ordered, we were out of time. We adored our two drinks, though!

Was there for the first time Sunday Brunch the experience was outstanding! Food was well prepared, very imaginative, and well presented. The Fried Chicken and Corn Cake was delicious! A crisp, perfectly cooked chicken thigh, served with a light, fluffy, flavorful corn cake. The Baked Brie was to die for as well. Atmosphere was very pleasant, quiet, cozy, chic, yet non-pretentious. We had brunch at the bar and the bartender was outstanding. Would definitely go back!

This was our first visit to Fifty One Kitchen and Bar and we will definitely go back. We went for brunch and the food was great! Started with the pastry platter (amazing banana bread) and moved on to perfectly poached eggs on top of delicious biscuits with sausage gravy and crispy French toast with a side of bacon.

Our server was terrific and the look and feel of the restaurant was very comfortable.

I hope they do well and that this review helps...

The food was amazing. Chef Evan has created a city-caliber menu in the suburbs! From beef tartare to weekend specials (lamb shank which fell off the bone), there’s always some new. Complimented by creative cocktails from mixologist Johnny, 151 brings their best every time!

Loved this place! Great food, great atmosphere. I am not one to complain at all, but I did find it odd we sat for over 15 minutes with no one coming up to the table. The manager or owner caught my attention the most. Dressed up nicely, walked around to all tables, whether it was cleaning them off, straightening them, you name it, he did it! When he noticed us he came up and asked if we had been helped, we said "not yet", that's all we said and within in seconds we had a waitress. Again, we were fine, not upset, didn't say anything just found it odd we waited so long. After we received our drinks, the manager/owner came back up to us and said "your drinks are on me, you were not served in a timely manner and you should not be waiting, I apologize it shouldn't have happened." We were very surprised, it's rare these days for that to even happen, and we didn't even complain! I went to the bathroom and came back, my napkin was back on the table folded. My boyfriend said the manager/owner came back through and folded it for me. Again, you notice him! He does this for everyone, he gets his hands dirty even all dressed up. Beyond impressed! I rarely do reviews but I had to jump on and give a shout out. The waitress was very sweet. We had a great experience and will be back. The food is GREAT! Drinks are GREAT!

Great food except one meal came out cold. They took it back to warm up and that took about 20 min to get back. Waitress was very inattentive and had a hard time dealing with more than one table at a time. When brought to the attention of the management, they addressed the issue and made good on everything.

Very cool restaurant with creative cocktails (e.g. brown-butter infused bourbon) and one of the best burgers in town (with bacon jam on the bottom bun). Awesome place!

Dined there on a Friday night w another family and had a 6pm reservation. When we got there, we were one of just a few tables. We had a table for 8 ppl. The ambiance and decor is great in there and our server was decent, not great but decent. The problem lies with the kitchen. Those that ordered burgers were served their food first. Then about what seemed like forever later...and after we inquired and complained to our server, the others were finally served. That’s basic 101 that everyone is served together...or even a minute or two apart worst case. Then when the steaks were served, they were cold and raw and the manager was quick to step in. The people that ordered the burgers had almost finished before those of us with the steaks were served again. Manager was very apologetic and reactionary and partially comped our bill, but would be tough to try this again a second time. So many great places to dine but felt bad as we really wanted this restaurant to be a hit and recommend. If the kitchen can get it together, will be a good restaurant. Good luck!

My husband, myself and our daughter had a Sunday night dinner. The service was outstanding! Johnny could not have been nicer, informative and just made us feel it mattered we where there. The chef, Evan, came out to chat for a bit and, he is just a really nice guy that loves food. We had a couple of appetizers, the brussel sprouts and the smoked salmon poppers, both were delicious. Our entrees were so good! Ed had the salmon entree, Caitlin had the roast chicken which looked amazing and tasted the same and I had the beet salad with added grilled chicken. We declined dessert but the choices were tempting nonetheless.....next time for sure.
One Fifty Kitchen and Bar is definitely one I recommend without hesitation. We will look forward to going back soon.

This was our second visit. My husband likes the stroganoff. My guests said it was the best burger they had ever eaten. I was extremely disappointed in the lack of Gluten free choices and in the indifference. Waitress was not helpful, left me hanging. I had the salmon a second time, unfortunately it was quite dry and overdone.

The evening did not start out well with being seated under the heat vent and asking to be moved. Then pouring water into a glass that was cracked and spilled all over the table. It took well over 5 minutes for someone to come over to clean up. The Manager said it was the second time this week a glass was broken. I guess that is ok? No apologies - very strange.

When the dessert menus were brought out, the waitress promptly advised me there was nothing for me. Tell me what restaurant doesn't at least offer ice cream (which is on the menu along with something else) to someone who cannot order off the menu. Bad taste all the way around for me.

I noted it was my husband's birthday on the reservation. They brought out a complimentary large piece of chocolate cake and ice cream. I'm told it was outstanding.

Excellent restaurant for something a little different. Just not the place for a dietary restriction - they are not interested.

Food and Drinks are usually "over the top Great", however this time it was extremely busy (7pm on saturday)and our waiter seemed to find it hard to keep up with the level of service expected for a restaurant at this price point. He could have used additional support. Long waits for drinks, Appetiser & meal and though food was very good, one of the dishes came out cold (lobster pasta). My sister and I enjoyed it, though I can't say the same for our husbands.

Server was inattentive. Food took nearly an hour and meals were not served together for our party of five. One came out alone. Ten minutes later, two more arrived. It took 20 minutes before everyone was served. It was another 30 minutes before the first one served received the bread that was supposed to accompany his meal. My potatoes were piping hot but my steak was room temperature. I told the server and she returned it to the kitchen. When it was brought back to me, it was the same plate of food and the meat was still cold. The room we were in was very noisy. The manager comped two meals but it was still a disappointment overall. Not as good as it was in service or quality as it was a year ago.

Three friends for an early dinner. Two of the dishes and the appetiser tasted delicious, unfortunately one of the dishes (the salmon) was dry and overcooked. However the presentation was still beautiful and the service was excellent. The decor was modern and chic and I will come back even just to have a drink at the bar.

We have eaten here a number of times. The food is fresh and ingredients are locally sourced. It was a new menu when we ate there on Monday night and I must say it was the best meal yet. We started with the brie appetizer (which is so good I order it each and every time we are at 151) and then I had the Cavatelli Stroganoff, which was absolutely phenomenal. I am craving it, so I think we may be heading back to 151 in the next few days. Try it -- it's wonderful!

First time here. Went with friends. Their mixologist was very creative. The "One Fifty One" is particularly good and worth a return trip. Our server was attentive and informative. Menu selection was slightly limited but every item ordered at our table was tasty. The only drawback was the portion size. Most plates were creatively arranged where the meal only covered half the plate. I had just enough to eat (and I usually take home leftovers). But the price per plate was the same as any comparable restaurant.

We had a great ladies lunch at One Fifty One the day before my sister's wedding. The food was amazing and we loved this cozy spot in Elmhurst. We were one of two tables in the restaurant, in addition to a private party in a separate room. Our service was extremely slow and we waited a considerable time for our food. However, our server did tell us that it was his first day so I'm sure that contributed to it.

Things we liked:
Convenience. Elmhurst was a "ghost town" in the afternoon on Thanksgiving Day, so parking was slick and the restaurant was easy to access. We liked the glass tumblers made out of wine glasses.

Things we didn't like:
You have to fight off the fake grass dividers which need trimming/attention, so that the grass fronds are not interfering with guests.

Food/Bill:
Soup was served and tasty, but cold. Salad was ok...but wilted. Steak was tough...we reported it to the waiter who shrugged his shoulders, as did the manager. Not everyone likes mashed potatoes and the turkey was set on top of them, giving the diner no choice but to discretely remove the potatoes from the meat and ignore the green beans buried in the spuds. Salmon was ok. The dessert (titled on the Menu, "Pecan Pie") was actually a pecan tart that was 1/4" thin, tough and hard--it really was a cookie. We all wound up eating them with our hands. We were 3 diners (in Elmhurst) and were charged $135.00 + tip with no booze/drinks for all this "fun". Happy Thanksgiving.
