One Fifty One Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
We had such an amazing dinner at One Fifty One. The cocktail and wine list was had so many delicious options, the ambiance was modern but extremely cozy, the service was excellent, and the food was incredible. I had the best Caesar salad and tagliatelle pasta that I’ve had in years, and the dark chocolate cake was the perfect finish. Can’t wait to go back!
Hadn't been back in a long time since our last experience was awful. came with two friends. Service was very good and food was tasty. Good to see you there were some new things on the menu. It was kind of noisy and hard to have a conversation but it was a fun time and good food over all. Would go again.
Disappointed the first time and wanted to give it another try since it's so cute and I love the atmosphere. Second try... just as bad. How do you mess up a cheese plate, soup and salad... but neither of us liked anything. Go here for a cocktail, but that's about it.
Good food, but not worth the price. $27 for a pork chop that didn't even come with a potato or vegetable. It was served on a bed of relish and didn't even have soup or salad come with it. 2 of us ordered pasta and didn't even get bread with it. Seemed the waitress was eager to take our order but then didn't see her much after. Empty glass of wine sat for 10 minutes before someone took it off the table never asking if we wanted another glass. Nice atmosphere and food was good but again not a good value. Don't plan on going back.
I really, really want to love this place, but it's hit or miss. We have dined there twice and had great food and some not so great foods. The staff was accommodating both times the food was unsatisfactory (removed from our bill)... so no real complaints. I am hoping they work out the kinks because I would like them to succeed. They bring a great new dining option to Elmhurst!
Impressed with the updates they have made to their service (must faster with drinks) and recommendations and education on the menu. The wedge salad could use a bit more dressing and additions to it but it was a nice compliment to the tomato soup which was amazing. Glad they are still going strong in Elmhurst and happy to see the kinks they were dealing with at the beginning when they opened, appear to be ironed out.
This was a lovely meeting spot between Chicago and the western suburbs that I would definitely go to again. The staff was friendly and the place has a modern/rustic feel. There were 3 in our party so we shared the Baked Brie appetizer - very tasty, [but odd to have to order bread as there is nothing to spread it on], the Quinoa & Kale salad, the Grilled Lake Trout entree which had an interesting and tasty splash of cucumber juice poured over it at the table and the Pasta Prima Vera. All very tasty and would order again. While this was plenty of food for the 3 of us, we did indulge in the Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp. Our waiter let us know the dessert took about 15 minutes to cook, which was great as it allowed us more time to talk and to digest and make room for more. For a Friday night, it was a very relaxed atmosphere. Never felt rushed. If you have hearing issues, be sure to ask for a booth by the wall as I found it easy to hear my dinner companions there even though the place was filled.
