It too bright for a supper restaurant and the jazz is great but very loud, waitress was lovely but slow.
Food was quite good. Scallops with linguini instead of risotto and trout were great.
Onion soup excellent.
Calamari good but beware it is spicy.

Pete Millers in Naperville was wonderful. I booked a reservation for my wife birthday. Our waitress and the manager gave us their undivided attention. The food and the service we received was awesome. The restaurant wasn’t crowded so it was extra special to have the gentleman playing the piano which seem like just for us . Thank you Pete Miller’s and your staff for a wonderful evening out .

Simply outstanding. From the welcome, drinks, appetizers, dinner, service. All was terrific. Our table had both fish and steaks as well as appetizers and desserts. All of it was very good. Service (Gina) was attentive and professional. We had a great time. Looking forward to returning.

We have been to this location 3 times because it is so close to our home we really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, the food and or service all three times was unacceptable especially for the price. We ordered the lobster stuffed mushrooms for the appetizer. They literally came out within 4 minutes of ordering. The mushrooms were dry and the filling was cold. The stuffed pork chop my husband ordered was also cold. I tried the steak sandwich which had so much fat on it, I couldn't eat it. We expressed our concerns to the waitress who in turn had the manager take my sandwich off the bill. At no time did a manager approach our table regarding our concerns. The place was dead too so it would have been easy for the manager to talk with us.

Had dined at Evanston restaurant before and was excellent. got to restaurant greeted enthusiastically, sat down ordered a bottle of wine. Restaurant Not Buishas, waitress was very nice but overwhelmed.....
Ordered bacon appetizer, great presentation, however tough & Way too salty to the point of uneatable. We both got salads which were fine. I had the Pete Miller rib eye medium rare, came out WELL None. She had filet which was cooked ok but vegetables were ICE cold.
Waitress came back once after dinner was done, noticed food wasn’t eaten. Asked if she could bring warm vegetables!
Beautiful restaurant; that is plagued with bad service and below average preparation of food. ( the quality was there)
The management should try to save this beautiful restaurant.

Food was good, except for the spinach which we sent back.
The waitress did not come by often enough. Didn’t even ask if we wanted a second drink. No one apologized for the food sent back.
This was our 2nd disappointing experience at Pete Millers and our last!

Went to check it out after theatre in Aurora. Seated immediately, drinks arrived soon after. Food was tasty, served hot or cold as required water replenished timely. Live music in bar. Mostly at good noise level but drums a bit loud at times, interferring with talk.

Love this place! My wife and I go frequently, whether for dinner, or just to sit at the bar enjoying great cocktails and listening to the live music/Jazz. Food and service are always awesome! Terry, the manager, and Dana (our frequent server/bartender), are always top-notch with their service--as is the rest of the staff. Very warm and friendly people, and they were amazing with my young daughter, who I recently brought there for a nice meal before the father-daughter dance. We will continue to be "regulars" at this place, and anyone who hasn't tried Pete Millers, should do so. Great to have a fantastic place like this in South Naperville, and so close to home.

I'd like to see this restaurant succeed because it's a great atmosphere and the food I've had on my 2 visits has been good, although a bit on the pricey side. The staff is very young and inexperienced though, which just doesn't suit the environment. We got a bit of an attitude from the hostess when she seated us and we asked for a table farther from the server's station. We were 1 of 3 tables in this huge restaurant, which was surprising. My martini was sub-par. We enjoyed the live piano music. Not wowed by the dining experience but holds a lot of promise. I will try it one more time.

Looked like 2 people working the restaurant and bar. Waited a few minutes at the front to check in but since I was early I left and went to the bar for a drink. Took 10 minutes before the bartender acknowledged us after that he started to replenish his Miller Lite and still after 15 minutes hadn’t taken our drink order so we left!

Myself and my fiance went in for dinner on a Saturday night around 6pm. Restaraunt was about 1/2 full. Our waitress was great and the restaraunt itself seemed great. I ordered steak with bearnaise sauce and shrimp, my fiance got the salmon. Salmon came out with no issues, my steak came without the $3 sauce. Not a big deal, asked for the sauce and got it on the side. The steak was average at best, not much seasoning if any at all, and my fiance said the same for the salmon. Then we went home for the night and that's when we both started to feel sick to our stomachs. This feeling lasted throughout the night and part of Sunday. Not sure what this feeling came from, but we did not eat anything out of the norm the entire week until we decided to try Pete Miller's.

This is a great local place! We highly recommend it and will be frequent diners! It was apparent that many of the customers were repeat. This is always a "marker" of a great restaurant.

Thank you to everyone at Pete Miller's Naperville for making my birthday dinner and our evening perfect.

Continued success!

The restaurant had a great ambiance and the live Jazz was amazing. However, our waitress was not the friendliest. We had her take the appetizer to box up for us to take the rest home and we saw her drop it on the floor as she was packaging. She had the chef make us a whole new one, but did not bother to tell us her mistake or why they would make a new one. The online menu stated they had crab legs for an entree and to add on to a steak entree. They did not offer this in house. That was one of the main reasons for trying this place out.

We were celebrating my husbands new job. The staff was great and brought out a candle with our dessert. Our food was excellent. We had filets cooked perfectly. The fresh cut fries were awesome. The French onion soup and wedge were delicious. We loved the live Jazz. The manager Terry makes the best cocktails and made sure we had great service! We will definitely return.

I really wanted to like his restaurant because it is so close to home. Rare that my wife and I get a date night, so we were trying this for dinner followed by a movie. From he start this restaurant was a disappointment. No record of our open table reservation, horrendous service, horrible food resulting in us eating an almost inedible, expensive meal followed by being late for our movie due to the horrible service. No apparent management on premises to insure staff was attending to patron’s needs. Had to ask for silverware, had to ask for bread, had to ask where our food was. Don’t waste your time and money.

This was our first visit. We had an Open Table reservation, so we were seated right away. We both ordered steak frites, which is a cut of the hanger steak. For some reason it came pre-sliced, which I thought was really strange. I’d really prefer to cut my own steak, and as a result it was a little dry. They had live jazz music with a vocalist that night – it was just ok—a bit distracting. Overall not a visit we were expecting.

My steak was cooked to perfection but I didn't care for the garlic mashed potatoes (too much garlic) and I didn't care for the Macaroni and cheese (wasn't bad I personally didn't care for it). My fiance loved both sides.

Wine was delicious but we were not served any bread

Great service and friendly

Pete Miller’s in Naperville turned out to be a disappointment for our first visit there. Mainly because the service was extremely slow. The sever was pleasant and professional but they were extremely understaffed and could not cover even alight load - 5 tables - in the dining room and 4 or 5 in the bar area.We have been going to Pete Milllers in Evanston for 15 years and love the experience. This was not what we expected.

Anniversary Reservation for 6:30 on a Saturday night. Nobody at reception area for almost 10 minutes. Host passed by several times looking for a specific wine. While waiting, one irate customer came forward looking for the manager and telling the trailing waitperson they should be fired. The host/manager finally arrived at the front desk and the irate customer instructed him to handle us first as we had been waiting. We were seated and the manager spent another five+ minutes or so in the back of the restaurant talking with the waitperson and avoiding the customer. Following seating, dinner for two (appetizer, salad, entrée, dessert) took 2 hours. Food was mostly good, service was very slow and poor. Ordering, drinks and appetizer were taken and delivered in reasonable time. Salad and entrees were 15+ minutes between courses. The table was never cleared of all used dinnerware between the courses and we had to ask for a steak knife for one of the entrees as it was not provided with the entrée. The serving staff was polite and responsive, but our waiter was very inattentive, paying attention to several large parties and neglecting others. Adjacent to us, two other parties of two were seated, served and departed after our arrival and prior to our being able to finish our entrees. The food was generally good. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was very good, the steaks were very good and the Brussel's sprouts were very good. The broccoli was barely cooked and could not be cut with a fork and the baked potato was offered only with butter and sour cream - no toppings. The carrot cake dessert was very good. During dinner, we noticed several steaks being sent back by adjoining diners. Summary: slow service end-to-end, inconsiderate manager, generally good quality of food but inconsistent, inattentive waiter and no notice or recognition of special event (Anniversary). Nice environment, live (too loud) music. Certainly not what was expected for $100+ dinner and special evening.

We really enjoyed our meal. We are local ang wanted to give it a try as we drive by this place all the time. I had steak and a wedge salad and we shared the calamari appetizer. My husband had the shrimp linguine and my 12 year old had the filet off the kids meal. While the food is expensive , we thought it was very good and the menu had many options. We were a bit nervous that it was not more crowded on a Friday night but it was filling up as we left. I would love to go back.
