Pete Miller's Steak & Seafood in Naperville Ratings and Reviews
Excellent food! Right up there with Sullivan's or Hugo's Frog Bar! I was surprised as they had only been open 5 days! The ribs fell right off the bone - no need to use hands! The GM was very friendly at the door! This place is pricey but I highly recommend it for special occasion/fine dining!
Pete Miller’s has a ways to go if it wants to compete as a local steakhouse, a long ways to go if wants to become a regional destination. I️ will give them a break as I️ went there on only the fourth night it was open.
The service was excellent as our waiter was experienced, knowledgeable about the new menu, engaging without being intrusive. My wife and I were very pleased.
I ordered the special, dry aged bone-in NY strip, creamed spinach, and salad to start. I️ find that Pete Miller’s suffers from the same problem many restaurants suffer from. The dry aged steak does not taste like a dry aged steak. For the premium price I️ expect a flavor that is nutty, beefy, almost gamey but not off putting. It was not. The creamed spinach was whole leaf spinach in a sauce more like buerre blanc than béchamel. Remarkably, it was void of flavor. The salad was a salad.
If Pete Miller’s is going to survive it needs to find a hook to keep diners coming back. Maybe a special seasoning, a unique broiled flavor, a huge baked potato maybe. The maple flavored thick cut bacon is a good idea but it needs better execution. The place needs something to separate from everyone else. Good luck guys. I’ll check back in a couple months.
I was excited for Pete Miller to open in Naperville. We made a reservation for Friday evening. When we arrived the place was crowded with diners and people waiting for their table. We were told that there would be a bit of a wait so we headed for the bar.
They have placed dining tables in every possible location leaving little room to stand near the bar. They have place settings at the bar requiring me to interrupt two diners to reach our drinks from the bar tender. I was given the bill and the bar tender forgot to make my drink. The order was for a glass of wine and a bourbon on the rocks. They charged me $8.00 for the bourbon and $4.00 for 2oz of rocks!
I sent a note to the contact email. It has been three days so; I guess they are not going to reply.
Let’s get to the good stuff, the food. It is primarily a steak place so we ordered two different steaks and sides. The creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes were very good.
When we ordered, my wife requested med-well, I asked for medium. Mine came out well done and hers med to med rare. Despite being cooked incorrectly, they were delicious. We shared one and took the other home for morning steak and eggs.
Our waiter was very nice and offered to replace our steaks but it was too late at that point.
Little things – Not clearing the table of extra place settings. Picking up only part of the dishes that had been used and set next to the edge. They need a better assortment of bourbon.
Not a big deal at a fish camp but a $$$ restaurant can do better.
Bottom line: We will go back because the food was that good and hoping that they get the logistics straightened out.
So, please go. Support this restaurant and help them practice.
Spouse’s birthday with our neighbors. Friday night dinner- only 3 days of experience for the staff. As a result, service was quite slow. However, the staff was quite pleasant. Unfortunately, our son’s ribs did not come out with the other meals. Actually everyone finished their meals prior to delivery of ribs. Apparently the ribs were burnt the first time. I guess it would be good quality control or standards. Bad timing though. Note- waitress did not charge the table for the ribs. A suitable gesture. My son did love the ribs. Overall a good dinner but just slow. Our table tried the Oyster dish and Tuna for Aps (awesome), dinner choices, Filet, NY Strip, Lobster, Trout, Caeser and of course the ribs. One other hint- order your bottle of wine early. The servers do not get the wine and are at the mercy of a manager. Growing pains. We will be going back.
I frequent fine dining places and steak-seafood joints such as Smith and Wollensky, Hugo Frogs, etc. This place has only one thing in common and that’s the price point. The ribeye (bone in) was ok for $50. But I had to ask twice for a steak knife. The wife ordered ginger ale and we received soda water. We ordered the seafood tower for two and the oysters were empty, the crab was so small we laughed and the there were two average size shrimp. My wife ordered the tuna and had to send it back because it tasted WAY too bitter. The server kept saying that the kinks needed to be worked out as they were only open for 4 days. Bottom line: no quality control from the kitchen, no supervision by managers, bar staff don’t know the difference between ginger ale and soda water and no one soliciting feedback from guests. After a $230 bill, we will NOT return even if the kinks do get worked out.
