Loved it! Great food, great service, great atmosphere!
Our waitress really made us feel rushed. From the moment we sat down until we left. For a $200 dinner for two, that should not be the experience.
We went late on a Monday night. I was shocked to have live music on a Monday night and it was good. I had a filet and my wife had salmon. Both were very good. Sweet potato was just perfect. French onion soup was great as well. Restaurant was not busy so our service was excellent. We were quite pleased.
My medium rare 10oz filet had a lot of dry spots. 1/4 of my steak was dry. For $44, you’d expect better quality. My husbands $38 Chilean sea bass was not good at all. Tastes flaky, when sea bass is supposed to be melt in your mouth. The sides with the sea bass did not go together at all. Great server, but overall, horrible food for the money. Very disappointed.
Food was a little pricey, but overall very good. The service was wonderful. Nice alternative to the other higher priced steak houses in the area.
Not worth the cost
Other fine dining steakhouses are far superior
The food, service, and atmosphere were all great! I had the beef short rib ravioli and it was amazing! Just when you think you’ve had something fabulous and think you’ll never find anything that ever tastes better, well , the short rib ravioli beat out everything! From the short rib ravioli to the carrot purée they lay on and all the wonderful flavors in between, words cannot properly describe how great it was. I was especially thrilled that the brown butter sauce did not overpower it in the least. I almost didn’t get it because of that. Too many times Ive had ravioli with brown butter sauce and it was just too overpowering to enjoy! Every ingredient in the dish complimented every other ingredient. Perfection!
Sat next to the kitchens the noise level was high. Service was fair at best. Steak was good, salmon was very salty.
We really enjoy this restaurant, close to home and we love the live music. Great cocktails, only criticism is desserts. (0-3)
We will be back.
Saturday night dinner for two. Right from the start, waitstaff service was a bit off... and rather obvious some (more) server training is needed. Pete's Shanghai Calamari appetizer had good flavor. Lobster Bisque soup was uneventful. Twin Main Lobster Tails were good. 7 oz. Filet Mignon with Sauteed Mushrooms was initially served pretty undercooked. Sent back and came back from kitchen acceptable; a good piece of meat not cooked rather properly.
Not an inexpensive dinner out. At this price point, far better service and more consistent food quality is needed to succeed.
Our granddaughter was anxious to try out Pete Miller’s in Naperville where she lives. We had a wonderful time, delicious food and excellent service. I had asked for a quiet area (a booth would have been nice), but we were seated right next to a very noisy table. Otherwise, our experience was good, albeit pricey!
I travel weekly and eat at a lot of different restaurants. The quality of the food was below par for the price paid. I ordered from the Lent menu, and the mustard covered salmon came without the mustard. I ordered a sweet potato, which was relatively small. Others at the table ordered the snow crab, which was cooked too long, softening the external shell, resulting in difficulty cracking the external shell. From the four people at the table, the consensus was unimpressive. There are several other restaurants in the Naperville area that will score much higher for a fraction of the cost.
We checked in and sat at the bar for 10mins. Not one bartender acknowledged us. Mind you it wasen't very busy. A signed credit card receipt from another party was in front of us for the entire time. Not very safe leaving this info out. They sat us in the library room, i thought someone was going to come and read poetry to us. It was such a quite room we were able to hear everyone's conversations. Our server was a nice young man who i felt was still in training, but his customer service was good. The firey shrimp was very good but everything else was not. My steak was cooked correctly but had no flavor and was boring. Not like the steaks pictured on their site. What really sent me over the top....The scotch, was watered down. I know because this is the only scotch I drink and you can tell by the light color. Spent $220 + $40 for tip because I liked our server. Not worth the money at all. 1st and Last.
Loved the music - hard to hear group while eating. Service slow took a while to get a drink and food order at 830 pm.
Food was decent, but the service was sub par. Very loud in front dining room with the jazz music. Our party of 6 had a difficult time conversing. Ambience in bar was cozy. Would go back for drinks/appetizers in the bar, but that is probably it.
Food was good but service was abysmal. Long time to get served, wrong orders, forgot to wrap leftovers, half the desserts were not available. All the tables in our section experienced significant issues.
Horrible food, poorly made& not matching description. Waitress seemed more excited about pushing their punch card system than waiting on us. Steak & Frite was horrible quality steak, half of which was rare & half well done. Instead of shoestring “frites” they were thick fries. Won’t be going back
We literally waited 15 minutes before anyone came to our table, and that set the tone for the remainder of the dinner. The server made some excuse for the delay and didn’t offer to make amends. No manager to be seen. Food was ok, but it didn’t make up for the poor service. Will probably not go back.
This was the first time dining at this restaurant. I had read both good and bad reviews but went there with an open mind. We were seated immediately and our server Carol came over a few minutes later. She answered a question about wine and came back shortly to take our order. We enjoyed our dinner and will definitely come back. We did not experience any problems with our meal or service.
Lots of flaws in the interior (lights that didn’t work, decor that didn’t make sense). The appetizers were good, the protein was well seasoned, but it was just a seared steak. There were also many little kids running around the restaurant, so not a great place for a date.
If your going to compete with the premium steak houses and expect high priced food to entice one to come back, you really need to re evaluate how your doing business.
The waitress did not know her specials nor were we offered cracked pepper with our a la carte salads.
The utensils were dirty and the salt and pepper shakers on our table had food stains on them.
The food was ok but not warranted of the prices you seek.
Overall a bad experience and I will not recommend you to anyone.
Our server couldn't explain how the food was prepared he just said good. He spilled red wine on the table and splashed all over the glass. the crab cake tasted fishy and like vegetable oil. the lamb chops were hard to chew and smelled like burnt oil. I'm a salt lover but the food was even too salty for even me. The only item that was good was the truffle Parmesan fries but not that great that I would need to go back. The prices seemed very high too. I guess we went with expectation that it would be like a Sullivan's or Eddie Merlots but no where near the quality however similar prices.
The host Kimme made us feel very welcomed and comfortable....
Our first time here since morphing from an Irish pub into a steak house. The locally sourced steaks looked to be very high quality, and my dry-aged Kansas City strip was cooked to perfection. I ordered it with encrusted peppercorn coating, and it was bursting with flavor. I do have hearing trouble if there is any background noise, and while the dining room was quiet, there was enough loud music leaking in from the bar area that I had a bit of trouble hearing. It was not so loud that the average person would have any trouble at all with it.
Overall, I would say the food quality was equivalent to any good steak house, and priced accordingly.
This was the first visit to Pete Millers' in Naperville. The food was almost perfect, the vegetables were still crisp and done well.. The service was friendly, attentive and informative.. There was a small three piece combo in the lounge and the noise level was a bit high in the dining room, made conversation just a bit difficult.. We were greeted with a smile and left with a smile... Overall a very good experience.
I was very disappointed in our first experience at Pete's. We went to dinner for Valentine's Day with another couple. Our reservations were at 5:45, and my husband and I were there at that time. The couple we were dining with was late due to weather. The hostess would not seat us until all of us were present- 20 minutes later. The hostess and manager seemed rushed and not very friendly. The waiter was nice, but we could tell he was busy with Valentine's Day. We were placed near the outer part of the restaurant, so it seemed like we were sometimes forgotten. We all ordered the filet for dinner, and it was more like a regular steak--not tender like filet should be at a high end restaurant. Two of us ordered a baked potato with our meal. It did not come out with the meal. The waiter brought one of them out about 5-10 minutes after our meal was brought out, and then he had to go get another because he forgot we both ordered on. The broccoli side I ordered was cold by the time the potato came. Finally, we were not given our bill for a very long time. We did not see him to request the bill for at 15 minutes. All in all for higher end restaurant, I was not impressed at all.
Choose the Lobster bisque over a salad, as the Evanston location offers a great bisque. Not the same, lacked flavor and under cooked. The sea bass was a disaster with too much artichoke and
what looked like polenta was flavorless. Somewhat a disaster on Valentine day, server's were getting most orders to the wrong table. Manager was condescending.
Food and service was great. We went on Valentine's day and because of how busy they were, we were put into a back room that I think is normally used for private parties. We did not like this area, as we like to go and hear the live music and were unable to hear it in this room. Normally a wonderful time though with great tasting food and outstanding service.
Valentines Day was not what we had hoped for. We took our teenage boys to celebrate Valentines Day. We had a reservation, but watched many people who arrived after us be seated. After seated our server was great, but after appetizers were served our dinner ticket was lost and we waited well over an hour for our food which was eventually served cold and sent back. We waited again and spoke to the manager who comped our app and dessert. The food was okay, but not what I would expect for what we paid. Disappointed overall.
Went for Valentine’s Day and had a great dinner. Our server Joey, was awesome! Super attentive, personable, and knowledgeable about the menu. Kansas City strip was really tasty and done to perfection at medium rare. My wife’s sea bass was done perfectly and is a nice preparation, done more Mediterranean style than the typical Asian influenced prep. We will certainly be back.
Celebrated Valentines Day there. Overall good!
Our 2nd time here! Overall DELICIOUS, Romantic and love that they play live music (piano) very romantic. Nice job!!!!
Nice venue. Will return.
Great jazz entertainment in bar area. Great food and ambiance. Will recommend to friends!
The servers are amazing and respectful. They knew the menu and was able to recommend many suggestions.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Plenty of dinner options and great for night out of fine dining!
Pete Millers is a very welcome addition to the South Naperville scene! I would only add, as they are new to Naperville, to ensure to have better presentation skills of the various cuts of meat being served. (There was no presentation) Additionally, the selection of wine by the glass was minimal due to allocation issues with certain brands. One suggestion I would make is to then introduce a new wine or 2 off of your wine list to allow guests to maybe try a new wine. All pricing categories should be represented...i.e do not only have $15 single glass options.
Food was great! Our server, Xadrian, was very helpful. Would definitely go back.
2nd visit and it was much better this visit. Oysters and salads were very good. We both had steak and they were perfectly cooked. Our waiter was exceptional.
We went the 1st time right after they opened and we will be back. Price fix items plus some add ons were excellent.
A really great place, great food. It is fairly new (opened 3 months ago) . Really beautiful place and good jazz intertainment. You can experience it up front in the lounge, a little bit further in 2 of their formal dinning rooms, or if you prefer it much quieter, dine in the Library as we did.
Prices are a bit high, but worth going to. Only thing they need to change is to serve their fantastic food on hot or at least warm plates.
