The food is fresh, interesting & creatively presented. We enjoyed 2 apps, entrees, desserts & 2 drinks, all for $125 for lunch. So not inexpensive but well worth the treat. My friend has Celiacs & they easily accommodated. We will b back to enjoy the tea service!

Love the ambience of The Table! Delicious options and were very accommodating to all my food allergies, which is always appreciated. Service was attentive but not overly intrusive and had great recommendations. Will definitely be going back!

Visited for a late lunch and was very pleased to find multiple vegan dishes on the menu. The service was prompt and attentive to the needs of our table. The food was delicious and portions sized to allow several people to share multiple dishes.

I was pleasantly surprised with my meal. I had the Tomato-Basil soup and the Chicken BLT Tartine. The flavors were wonderful! I found myself trying to identify all of the wonderful, hidden flavors I was tasting. The staff were pleasant and the service was good. Chef Kim has a winner with this casual and inviting menu. I truly enjoyed every bite.

Sadly disappointing! Overpriced & nothing special. I had a Quinoa Poke Bowl with Shrimp 🍤 that was fine. My friend had a Banana Split dessert served on Banana Bread that was as hard & dry as a hockey puck. And get this - it was $11.00!! Don’t waste your time.

Been to The Table at Crate 2 times now. In the summer, we sat outside and had small bites. Food was good and the presentation was even better! Of course, because it is Crate and Barrel the glassware and tableware are amazing! This time, met a friend for dinner and sat inside. Absolutely so cozy and nice view of Oakbrook Mall and fountain outside even in the dead of winter. They have a Happy Hour which had a good choice of red and white wine at a good value. The appetizers we shared were small portions but we just ordered a bit more. Not a deal breaker. Definitely recommend for a quiet and cozy place to go to for a night out.

Service was very good. Server had lots of recommendations. Tomatoe basil soup and spinach artichoke dip were very yummy. Burger and fries were good but nothing special. It’s a different concept fir a restaurant.

We went for Wine Down Wednesday and got three bites and tastes of wine. It was wonderful! Then we went to our table had a lovely dinner and took home pasteries for later. It was a wonderful weekday date night.

Food was outstanding and fresh. Went for dinner with my girlfriends and everyone found something to try and loved what they ordered. However, it's more like a place to stop by for a nice early dinner after shopping. We were the last people there and left at 9:00. And it was clear they wanted us to leave. Service was OK...not great. Will go back, but probably for lunch.

Our waiter was absolutely fantastic. I think her name was Mia, really a wonderful waiter and great service. She deserves a raise. The food was very healthy, amazing, and the presentation of each dish really made a statement. The ambience of the restaurant is truly breathtaking as it in ties into the crate and barrel store. They have a great drink list, and a wine from New Zealand that no one else sells anywhere else. I had the champagne which was really great, and the best part about it is that they really chill their drinks. It was very nice being able to finish our meal, have a coffee, and walk around the store. What a fun experience. I highly recommend!

Today I took my mother for lunch and we shared everything. It was wonderful! The chicken was plump and juicy and the burger was cooked perfectly. In addition we took treats home from the coffee bar to try because they looked so good.

In celebration of my close friend's 60th birthday, we chose to dine with our mothers at this fabulous cafe. From the moment our stunning hostess, Gabriela, seated us, until our departure nearly three hours later, we were treated to the most delicious, exquisitely staged food and beverage we have ever enjoyed. It would be impossible for me to describe every item in the detail each deserves but I think I can sum up the experience this way...dining at The Table at Crate is a feast for the culinary senses. The beauty of the food, the incomparably unique flavors, the satisfying crunch of the fresh salad ingredients, the scent of every morsel as each approaches one's mouth and the steaming hot warmth of the day's special soup, intersect in a way that leaves the diner wishing the experience would never end! A heartfelt congratulations to Chef Bill Kim on the launch of this outstanding establishment. From the gorgeous interior appointments (everything can be found in the adjoining Crate & Barrel retail area) to the unparalleled table side attending provided by our dining service ambassador, Mathias (our waiter!), I would highly recommend you make it your 2020 New Year's Resolution to dine at this fantastic establishment. Just watching the line cooks, featuring Annamaria Leal and a cast of astutely artistic professionals will be well worth the visit! Enjoy!

The avocado toast was delish with generous amounts of avocado. The waitress wasn’t able answer our questions about the menu very well, so my husband was disappointed with his tiny $14.00 hamburger.

Although the food is very tasty, this is the place to go for a light meal. The portions are small. The service and ambiance are wonderful and it doesn't feel like you're eating in the middle of a store. The noise level is too high for serious conversation, but it's a happy, energetic place. I would definitely recommend it, with reservation.

The food was good, however, the portions were small and overpriced. One burger was very over cooked. We will probably give it one more try. Very convenient in the shopping center.

Love the decor and the food. We got the Mushroom Fricasse, the Shishito peppers, and the lemon chicken. The mushroom fricasse was so good in terms of overall flavor. Order more than less - the portions are not that big.

This was my second visit. On both occasions, I found the food descriptions somewhat misleading. The tartines turned out to be open-faced sandwiches. On this visit, I ordered Lettuce Tacos, which turned out to be poached shrimp on a bed of baby greens. I ordered a Phat cookie for dessert and it turned out to be stale. The atmosphere is cool and modern, but the menu needs an overhaul.

Menu wasn't overwhelming but still a fair amount of eclectic options. There were some staples that would satisfy some finicky eaters. Waffle fries and aioli a very good starter. Service was personable and outstanding. A little pricey but worth it.

It was a lot of fun sitting at the window and watching the world go by. My cocktail was great, but my friend did not care for the Bloody Crate - too much dill(?). My chicken was wonderful, but my friend did not care for the cauliflower lasagna at all. The hot chocolate bar was fun. Our server was great and attentive. Thought the food was a bit expensive for what you got. Would probably go back for drinks and appetizers, but probably not a meal. The artichoke appetizer was wonderful. It came with rice cakes. I get that we are supposed to be cleaner in our eating, but I just ate it without any dippers.

Wonderful experience for our first time at The Table at Crate.
The setting was warm and inviting and our server Karyn could not have been nicer! The food and drinks were flavorful and arrived timely and our overall service was attentive and thorough.
I would definitely return to dine here and would recommend it to others for a pleasurable experience.

I really wanted to love The Table, but unfortunately, I found it extremely overpriced and the food reminded me of an overpriced airport restaurant. There are so many other options at Oak Brook, that have better food and are better priced.
