    I was very disappointed. We have been to Suburban multiple times over the years and always had delicious and great experiences. Our appy of Pumpkin Perogies had no flavor, the Broccoli Rabe had a strange taste, the Ribeye was super fatty (like half the steak), and the Chicken Pot Pie was more like a stew and just ok. The Pretzel Appy was tasty, and the cocktails were good. The place was pretty empty, and our waitress was nowhere to be seen most of the time. We ended up going to another restaurant after since one of the people at our party couldn't even eat her meal. For the amount we spent on dinner, I was definitely disappointed in the quality & flavor of the food.

    Food was ok. with the exception of the Pumpkin Soup which was outstanding. Unfortunately our waitress was either new, or just had a hard time focusing. She was nice but not very attentive. The room was loud and not conducive to conversation.

    It was as if they were still learning how to be a restaurant. Made a reservation on OpenTable and they were surprised when I arrived and weren’t sure if they could accommodate my party. Also no hostess stand so I had to look for an employee to tell them we’d arrived so during this time another party (without a reservation) was sat before us! We had to ask several times for silverware and napkins, and eventually got it ourselves!! Did get food we didn’t order, didn’t get food we did order, it was really ridiculous. Everything took forever as well. Will never return.

    Place was mediocre … we had to keep telling the server to bring out our food and drinks. The food was just mediocre and pricy for what it was ,Nothing to write home about. They did have an extensive beer list which was nice. The atmosphere was decent but overall wouldn’t go back

    We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a wonderful brunch. Our food was delicious and the coffee was great. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and courteous. The waiter was happy to make adjustments to the menu offerings to accomodate the vegetarians in our party. Since we had two kids with us, we appreciated the games on the patio to keep them occupied. We will definitely return.

    We waited 20 minutes for a server to greet us at our table. There were tables being greeted by a server who came in after us and the restaurant was not busy. We eventually had to walk out because no one had come up to us. Very disappointed because we were excited to try this restaurant.

    Got the chicken quesadilla and it was delish. My husband got the bucatini and loved it. We didn’t get a specials menu which was a bummer, but we also didn’t ask because we didn’t know they had specials. We’ll know for next time!

    Food was very good, plan to go back again at some point. A bit too noisy but would be much better in cooler weather when they can open for alfresco dining (everything is a hard surface inside the restaurant). The big drawback is the service but that’s the bane of so many suburban (no pun intended restaurants) especially in the summer…ours was young, probably inexperienced and needed much more polish.

    We had a less than great experience at Suburban for brunch this past weekend. The food took almost an hour to come out and was cold when it did. We were charged for fries we didn’t order (we ordered truffle fries and regular fries were brought out - we were charged for both) and when the eggs were raw on one of our plates, we sent it back (and chose not to have anything else) and had to ask to take it off the bill which we thought was poor customer service. The server couldn’t be bothered. I’ve liked suburban in the past but we won’t be back after that expeorne.

    While the service and the food was very good the noise level is beyond belief. The music is way too loud and our pleas to reduce the volume resulted in a momentary changes followed by a return to what I assume is the normal level. Our order was incorrect because our server could not hear us clearly. Good beer, nice food but the noise level eliminates this spot for a return visit. Too bad.

    We came here on a Sunday evening and made a reservation just in case. However, when we arrived it was a much more dive bar/casual dining experience than we had expected (judging by the menu $$$). We sat outside while it was sunny and ordered some apps but then moved inside when it got chilly which wasn’t a problem because there were plenty of unclaimed tables. The service is where things felt off… nobody brought us waters and no one even acknowledged us sitting there fully ready to order entrees after almost 15-20 minutes until we had to flag down the server. This is something I HATE doing because I also work in the service industry so I getttt what it’s like to be weeded or busy and not be able to give 100% service at all times. But seriously it was not that busy and we just felt unwelcome to be honest. Nonetheless, we did end up getting the servers attention and placed our entree orders (these were all $25+ plates) and still never got any water until we specifically asked again. Food was tasty at least. But definitely not the dining experience you expect from a place charging $18 for bruschetta lol and $26 for tofu.

    Fabulous salads, tasty mushroom soup special and the mussels were divine! Brussel sprouts appetizer was also great! The soup wasn’t quite hot, although kudos for excellent presentation, and our entrees were brought out too soon, while we were still eating appetizers. The fries with crab seasoning were not good. Tiny little fry pieces coated so heavily on some of them that they were a deep, dark brown. Not great. Otherwise was a really good first experience here, overall the food was good, nice ambiance, and we’ll definitely return soon!

    Suburban for brunch is always lovely! I like the brunch cocktails and hash cream potatoes the best! They update their menu often, so be sure to check to see what the latest offerings are! My favorite dish is the creamed chipped beef, but now they have sausage and gravy instead. It was also good!
