Not what I expected...the menu goes way beyond pirogies, borscht and goulash. Great cocktails, great service, feels real, not like a concept restaurant. And the pirogies, borscht and goulash are just amazing,

We recently decided to move to Ukrainian Village and prior to our move, try out some authentic Ukrainian cuisine. Tryzub was a perfect first choice. We popped in for brunch with my father-in-law and his wife. The brunch menu is a small add on menu, but the lunch/dinner menu is more than satisfactory to anyone needs. They have a wide variety of goulash, perogi’s and pot pies just to name a view. I ordered their goulash pot pie and the meat was tender and plentiful with a very delicious hearty flavor. The prices are fair in comparison with the portion size. It’s got a great updated Ukrainian ambience. Service was a bit slower than what you normally get but that was not an issue since all my needs were taken care of. Highly recommended - it’s a great cultural feeding and feeling.

We were very pleasantly surprised! Went for an impromptu Valentine's Day dinner and loved the slightly cheezy, giant crackling projection-screen fireplace, Ukrainian music videos, live piano player and especially (no kidding) the friendly staff and warm family atmosphere. The food was delicious classic Cossak comfort cuisine and definitely worth a repeat visit!

Tryzub is a very nice authentic and cozy Ukrainian restaurant right in the heart of Chicago’s Ukrainian village. We were captivated by the decor and lights they had set up throughout the interior. Very classy and yet again cozy to say the least. Went here for my birthday dinner in hopes to find food just as good as my Ukrainian grandmothers. The winter borszcz is perfect for the winter season and the Chicken paprikash was an explosion of flavor. The only thing I was disappointed by was the pierogi. There was not much flavor to the filling or carmelized onions... but despite that we had a great meal. Finished off with a deliciously hot served apple strudel with some vanilla ice cream. Will be returning ASAP.

Service left a little bit to be desired - they forgot to bring my tea, little recommendation from server or interaction. For the menu, more vegetarian or vegan options would be great. That being said, my family really enjoyed themselves. Especially the dish in an entire pumpkin!

Great food, good portions. Their service was abysmal, though. Very nice people, but you were constantly looking around trying to hail ANY server to get refills or even just to order your meal. I might try getting takeout next time since the food WAS really tasty. The tables aren’t spaced adequately either — people were constantly bumping or shimmying around our table to get by. Super annoying.

Our dining experience was good. But soon after dining there we found that the credit card we used was stolen. This was the last purchase we made with that card before the car numbers were stolen. Before this we haven’t used the card in a few days and only used it at places that we frequented.

We had a problem with the service - our waitress was new and one half of the table was served first, the second half sometime later. That said, the owner was extremely apologetic and offered to comp us the wine and threw in some amazing horseradish vodka. The food, when it came, was outstanding. So we understand why professional restaurant critics make sure to come three or more times to a restaurant before passing judgement. We would certainly come back, assuming that the service experience we had was a one-off.


We had the chicken kebabs and green pierogi. The pierogi were fantastic. Just fantastic. The kebabs were great too.


This restaurant is in the neighborhood of dear friends with whom we often stay when we're in Chicago. We do look forward to coming back and trying it again. And thanks to the owner for being so responsive once he became aware of the problem.

We were a group of 13. The service was very slow. Next time we visit your restaurant I will ask how long it will be until we get our food. We had arranged for a tour of Ukrainian Village and the slow service caused us to b late for the tour.

We’ve been here several times, though not recently, and it remains a great place to eat. I was there with my wife and two friends, all of whom were born in Ukraine and raved about the food. The offerings are slightly modernized takes on traditional favorites made with high quality ingredients.
