The Chew Chew
Nice casual local dining spot. Generally, good food and lots of special and wine discounts.
It was Rib Week, and the ribs were cooked perfectly. They were NOT overcooked, but a marvelous smokey chew-off-the-bone meatiness. The sauces were divine - smokey bacon molasses was our favorite. Definitely worth a repeat.
Rib Week is not to be missed. Delicious, a steal at $19.95 for a full slab of smoked ribs +, great wine.
As usual, the food was absolutely outstanding! This time around I had the scallops with crab risotto; the scallops were tender and the crab risotto delicate but flavorful. Accompanied by an excellent pomegranate Cosmo and followed up with a lovely vanilla creme brulee. The table shared smoked trout as well as the boar Swedish meatballs, both of which were wonderful . I ordered the Steak Diane previously and it was cooked to perfection. The staff is very attentive and friendly, the decor warm and inviting. Highly recommended!
Always a warm and friendly place. We loved the dinner and our server!
Great food, wonderful service, charming ambience. Consistently good.
Great place for a family get together with a variety of menu choices for different tastes. Food was great and service was exceptional.
This is not my first review for this restaurant...we LOVE this place! The food we order is always amazing, the drinks are so good, and the service is perfectly timed. I dropped a star for the food on this trip because we were disappointed to find that one of our kids' favorite appetizers (edamame) had been taken off the menu. Bummer! And I dropped one star for the service because our waitress seemed a bit curt with us a couple of times. I don't think it was personal; I think she probably just wanted to get home to her family (we were there on Christmas Eve), but it was out of the ordinary behavior. But do NOT let this deter you from trying this place...it is a gem of a restaurant and is normally absolutely perfect in our eyes.
We love this place. If fact we are going again tomorrow to celebrate Christmas Eve!
Great service and awesome jambalaya!
Our tiny village is so very fortunate to have such a fine restaurant. Thank you for being here, Chew Chew!
Amazing food and service. Inventive cocktails.
We loved everything.
We had a reservation for 6pm on a Thursday night but had to wait about 15 minutes when they finally offered to sit us upstairs. No one else was upstairs as we were seated. Not exactly a nice ambiance.
Chew Chew never disappoints. The gracious waitstaff and the amazing food are consistently excellent. We especially like the specials as they are always delicious. The menu changes often to reflect the season, and this time we especially liked the Thai Lettuce Wraps and the Warm Farmers Salad.
Excellent food quality and value!!!!!
Nice menu options and food is really very good. LOVE the warm bread. Portions are large to say the least. Really a very nice place to go for dinner. Nice dessert menu also.
Always delicious food and gracious service!
Thank you for this neighborhood gem.
Great menu that evolves and is never boring.
The new Chicken Katsu sandwich was delicious! Thanks, Scott!
Always enjoy the Chew Chew food and service. Some changes to menu that we tried since last visit and they all were tasty. Had a new wait staff and she was able to answer questions about new menu items.
Chew Chew has been a favorite of my wife and mine since their previous location. They keep reinventing themselves and the quality is really high. You can tell Scott works really hard and takes pride in delivering delicious food and excellent service.
The other night was no exception--we were over the moon with how delicious the new Ahi Poke Bowl (my wife's) and Crab Risotto with Scallops (mine) were. It was one of those moments where all the flavors and freshness just blended together climactically for a wonderful dinner!
Food was exceptional in taste and presentation. The Service was spot on.
Great local place. Food and ambiance always great. Scott does an excellent job making certain the food you are served meets his high expectations, often found in the kitchen himself.
Yummy food and great service!
Outstanding as always!!! Great job on the new menu, keeps us coming back.
The food was great, as always. However, we had trouble getting the attention of our server..actually, any server, if we needed anything after she left our table or anyone was walking in the area (seemed they trained them not to make eye contact!).
Good food. Noise level is low so great for conversation. Great service.
It was nice to get together for a birthday celebration for one of our girlfriends.
Everything was done very well.
We will be sure to come back to the Chew Chew Cafe
We try to eat there a few times a month. Never a bad meal.
Enjoyed the Porcini Tortellini with Lemon Spinach; tortellini was the thin lighter type that just melted deliciously!
Always a pleasure to eat at The Chew Chew! Great food, pleasant atmosphere and wonderful service.
Love Chew Chew. Friendly and where we always go to celebrate.
One of our favorite west burb places. Scott always delivers outstanding evenings. Celebrated my moms 91st birthday and cant think of a better place to be..
Great food and happy hour. The ambiance is pleasant, servers are all kind along with the busboy who constantly kept our table clear of finished drinks, plates, etc...we love it there!
The atmosphere, service and food were excellent as always. This is a go to spot for us and friends.
Great service, great value, and great food. All around excellent dining experience. We’ll be back.
Good food and service!
Food was terrific. Love the new items on the menu. Service was gracious and excellent.
This is a very clean and neat neighborhood restaurant but can easily be a destination. Excellent food with a varied menu that periodically changes. Full bar with attractive seating. Always good fish, shellfish, steak, fries, burgers, salads and bowls. Highly recommended.
One of my favorite restaurants in the Chicago area! The food and drinks are excellent and the service is friendly.
