    Outstanding. The food, cocktails and service were impeccable. Kudos to the chef and management. Don't hesitate because of the park district golf course clubhouse location that's usually associated with "grill" food. The Lawn far surpasses high end establishments that proport to deliver a similiar food experience but fall short most of the time. I want this place to succeed, and stay true to its culinary mission and passion. My only suggestion is that a restaurant this good needs an ambiance upgrade if it stands a chance at being a dining destination 12 months a year. I will be back, hopefully in cozier, more comfortable surroundings. It will make dining there so much more pleasureable.

    While the restaurant was surprisingly empty for a Sunday evening, we had a wonderful meal. Everything was delicious - the mushroom risotto, prime rib dip, and the kids grilled cheese 😃. Impressive wine list. It was a little on the pricy side ($34 for the prime rib sandwich), but we will definitely return.

    I spent my birthday at The Lawn, and it was an absolutely perfect experience! A group of friends joined me for happy hour, and the team at the Lawn took amazing care of us. Many of my friends had never been there before and were blown away with the friendly service and the great food and awesome overall vibe. Later, I had dinner with my family and every dish is excellent. Pork chop is fantastic. Mussels are wonderful. Flatbreads, crab dip, short rib…you can’t go wrong. Can you tell I’m in love with The Lawn :)?

    We had a wonderful dinner last night at the Lawn! I came to the restaurant mainly for the phenomenal oysters but decided to try their fried chicken also. It was finger-licking good, and Brussels sprouts were also delicious! A Northshore well-kept secret the Lawn is. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful. Love this restaurant.

    This the second year my husband and I celebrated the end to a year and toasted to the new at The Lawn. First, we loved the free champaign! I asked to sit near the fireplace and the request was granted. The roasted brussels sprouts were the best I have ever had! All of the food was fabulous and served with a smile by a lovely young lady who is studying to become a chef. There was a large group of friends who were at the bar, but the noise level was not at all excessive. We will definitely be back and plan to bring more friends to this very special and beautiful restaurant.

    Service was horrible. I think the food is good but don’t know for sure as I had to take it home because my order was wrong and it took a really long time to finally get it. With no apology from the server. May go back if in the area as my husband liked his meal.

    Second time at the Lawn, first time for dinner and it did not disappoint! All four of us really enjoyed our meals- crab cake, mussels and the grilled shrimp risotto, all very delicious. I was the only one in our party who had dined there before, everyone was very happy with my suggestion! We’ll be back!

    The food at the Lawn was very good. The fried chicken was delicious, and it was gluten free which was a treat for me. The butternut squash soup was superb and the salads were excellent. My husband loved his short rib bolognese. Unfortunately, the noise level was off the charts. We couldn’t even hear the other people at our table. I would like to return to The Lawn. Perhaps the noise level is lower during the week.

    We were not warned that half the space was reserved for a private party and so the side we were on had a bunch of tables making lots of noise playing mahjong. Since we were there to chat over a nice lunch, it was very hard. We couldn't hear each other. How could I be sure this won't happen again. Not willing to recommend it under these circumstances.

    Squash soup excellent. Beet salad excellent. Had to order bread basket since no bread offered with soup or salad. Not a good look for the price of these items. Plus the rolls were over warmed and dry. Bread was fine. Service fine. Had to ask for refill on coke. Never offered. The decor is very pleasant.

    Second visit to the Lawn. Not impressed. We sat outside at a nice table. Asked for bread (even though they charged $4). Bread arrived ten minutes later. Server explained they had to bake it. Bread was suitable for croutons. Over baked and came without any butter or spread. My wife ordered a Caesar salad with salmon. I ordered some sort of protein salad with smoked salmon, couscous, greens and dried corn. The Caesar came without any cheese and the salmon was a bit fishy. My protein salad was interesting on the menu but not so much in taste and presentation. Had to get up and hunt down the server a couple of times. Overall, don’t think I’m going back…unfortunate because it’s close enough to walk to.

    Service was poor. Two wait staff for two tables. We asked for bread or crackers for the table. After 15 minutes, I had to get up to go ask for it again. He brought 3 packages of saltines. Never did the waiter come back to our table to ask if we wanted anything else. The food was just okay.
