                                      No valet parking and parking lot was not real close. No signs indicating where the brunch was . Food selection was very limited and the choices were very unusual combinations. Wait staff did not remove used plates from table unless you asked them to. A small offering of desserts were brought to your table as you were handed your check.

                                      Have gone to this restaurant for many years for Easter Brunch and will go again. So please take this as constructive comments and not criticism. After this event not taking place because of Covid we were very excited to go to our loved buffet again. A couple things that were new/missing that you may want to reconsider for next year. When we first entered the Lodge, the very strong smell of garlic was ... overpowering. And could be smelled the whole time we were here. Just an FYI but not everyone can eat garlic and/or enjoy the smell. We stayed away from the new pasta bar. And not having the sushi bar was definitely missed. It is one of the reasons I'm willing to pay the price of the buffet. Please bring it back. Along with waffles and breakfast sweets (only blueberry muffins) at the breakfast bar. Overall, the food was a good as usual and we will go back. But please consider my comments as constructive.

                                      We had a delicious Easter brunch. The food was plentiful, yet unlike many buffets, the food at Water Edge was delicious, of high quality and a good variety. The service was friendly and helpful. The ambiance was beautiful, with windows overlooking the beautiful grounds. They had a very good 3 person band playing live music, which added to the festive feeling. There was an Easter bunny for pictures and to greet the guests. The price was a bit steep. We had invited friends to join us but they declined due to the high price. We could have gone elsewhere for less, but the quality of food would have not been the same.

                                      too expensive for an average brunch. I thought, at a hundred dollars a person there would be more upscale selections. Like beef tenderloin instead of roast beef. Baked ham would have been a nice addition. The pasta station can be eliminated or limited.

                                      After no luck with other restaurants in the area, we decided to stop into Hearths Lounge the sister restaurant to Waters Edge and the food did not disappoint! The staff was so friendly and accommodating and our waitress Cari was very attentive and hospitable! 10/10 we’d definitely recommend.

                                      Some of the best food we've ever had. The hearth lounge feels intimate and cozy. The acoustics we're great. We could hardly hear the table next to us. Tables were spread out so it felt private. Service was great. Would absolutely recommend.

                                      Our veggies and pasta came out cold but they immediately took it back and replaced it with fresh & hot product. Our server was very nice & attentive.

                                      Laid back spot for drinks and/or dining. The menu is small and pretty limited, but I knew that going in. I absolutely love the atmosphere here; it is a great place to go when you actually want to have conversation and not feel rushed. I think it's a hidden gem in Oak Brook and a welcomed departure from the noise and crowds.

                                      My bad for not thoroughly reading the reviews, but the profile on open table was a bit misleading. This is not a restaurant with brunch, but rather the breakfast area of a hotel. There is no way our reservation could have been accommodated had they been busy at the time. Most of our group got the American breakfast plate which was fine, the Benedict, however, was served cold with eggs overcooked to the extent that they were soft boiled. Additionally, they sold us an espresso, never brought it out, then when we asked said the machine was down to be cleaned. Cleaning the machine is great, but it would make more sense to either tell your customer that when they try to order or to finish your orders first. The machine was not operational until we had finished our meal.

                                      Unfortunately, there’s nothing to tell because when we went to the restaurant it was closed. We didn’t have any idea why, and no one notified us of the closing. Not good from a customer service standpoint.

                                      We went in the evening, and sat outside, there was no lighting on the table, we had to use our phone to read menus. The food took a very long time to come out. Maybe I'll revisit during the day hours.

                                      The view, especially outside on the lake, is relaxing and scenic. There's swans swimming around and lots of trees. However the menu is (as often mentioned) quite limited - its basically hamburgers and few sandwiches. The fare is good, not great. The service is average, not particularly friendly. The cocktails are good, not special. If it were not for eating outside on the terrace enjoying a peaceful afternoon, the restaurant would actually be disappointing. If you go there, realize that its just (probably overpriced) lunch sandwiches in a pleasant setting.

                                      Water's Edge is the hotel cafe and bar, but given that the food and service were subpar. Drinks were on point.

                                      Pre pandemic, I had gone to Water's Edge numerous times. The menu was much more varied and the food delicious. This visit, the menu was vastly depleted. I was so disappointed there were no entrees; only sandwiches and appetizers. That would have been ok, but nothing looked amazing on the menu; only ordinary. Although we went for dinner, we decided on drinks and an appetizer; nachos. I have had better nachos at Taco Bell (no, I am not exaggerating). There were no jalapeños, the cheese was blah. They forgot the sour cream, although the host had to check the menu to make sure it said sour cream, which it did. We also saw a wait staff serving a nacho dish to another table and it did have sour cream. I have to give the host credit though because he did take the nachos off the bill. There were very few people there. It was really sad and disappointing. Hyatt needs to step it up, although hotel restaurant food typically isn't the best. In the past, as I stated, the food had been delicious (I don' remember if Hyatt owned it then). The inside designs looks worn and dated, especially the rugs. The view remains spectacular. This could again be an amazing spot, if Hyatt looked into this and took care of it.

                                      The food selection was very limited and felt like it’s fast food. We had to get up to go pay our bill. Once we got our food, no one checked if we were doing ok and if we needed anything else. The salmon was raw and I couldn’t find the server to let him know. It was understaffed for the amount of people that were there. It wasn’t worth the money I paid for.

                                      The bar area has great ambiance. The food is fine but the selection is lacking.

                                      I have very mixed emotions about Water's Edge. It is what is perhaps the most scenic restaurant in DuPage county. It is located in the Hyatt Lodge on the former McDonalds campus in Oakbrook. The restaurant itself overlooks a large pond (complete with swans) and a mostly wooded area. So much for the good parts. Water's Edge is literally a white table cloth restaurant. But also a restaurant where you have to order from the counter, and they bring you the food, kind of like Culver's. Apparently Water's Edge is only open for Breakfast/Brunch. Food wasn't bad but disappointing for the price. Service was friendly and helpful. I will certainly go back if they turn the place into a full service restaurant. The location and view will be worth it.
