This was my first experience in a Ukrainian restaurant and my friend and I had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the server was informative and cared that we were enjoying the food. Another server was helpful telling about her favorite dishes while we were waiting for our table. All in all, a fabulous experience and I know my friend and I will return with more friends. We did watch Check Please which was why we decided to try the restaurant.

Service and ambience was great, although the large screen TV is quite intrusive. Food was very good, but borsch when delivered was not hot, but merely lukewarm.

I very much love the Tryzub. It makes me feel like I am eating in Kyiv with beautiful waitresses and wonderful Ukrainian music and designs.

This charming spot is able to be both authentic to its traditional culture while providing fresh interpretations to the food. For example, stuffed cabbage has bison and black rice and is lean and tasty, not heavy at all. Summer borscht was served in an upside down goblet and was bright and tangy.
Service was excellent.
The space is charmingly filled with photos, family mementos, books and the earthy yet bold colors of the Ukraine while bright large windows add cheer and sunshine. I was there for lunch but will go back to sample the house infused vodkas in the future.

This review is only based on service. We were seated immediately. Once at our table, no one acknowledged us for 30 minutes. We were ready to place our food and drink order but it was impossible to flag down a server because they never came near our table or made eye contact with us. We eventually had to get up and leave which is uncharacteristic of us. It was very disappointing because we were very excited to try the cuisine but we felt invisible. Will not be going back, which is a bummer.

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,

Tryzub is always an amazing experience and I would recommend this friendly and welcoming restaurant for anyone. I go once a year and I always enjoy the food, ambiance and friendly service. If you have not yet tried the Tryzub Kitchen, I recommend that you do. You will not be disappointed.

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!

Great experience. Totally unexpected. Hidden neighborhood gem. Tried to arrange a dinner for the following Monday but it’s closed on Monday. Sad. We will be back and bring lots of others. Be sure to make a reservation.

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.

We took my son and his wife, who is from Ukraine, here for his birthday. The food was tasty, the portions good-sized, the prices reasonable, and the service friendly. My daughter-in-law had dined here previously and pronounced the cuisine authentic. I am sure we will visit again.

The three of us enjoyed the Ukrainian charcouterie, Pierogis, Chicken Paprikas, Rouladen and
Nut cake and it was all delicious. Can't wait to come back and try some of the other items on the menu.
