    Culinary Service was inadequate to meet the needs of a full restaurant. The food was well seasoned but, for several of our group, was not cooked to order or was not what was ordered. Service was very slow and the servers gave no explanation. I believe the restaurant has great potential but management has to up its game.

    We stumbled upon this place via a recommendation from someone we met at the beach in Winnetka. The group I was with are all from the UK and we were just trying to see a bit of the nicer Chicago suburbs. We have since made another trip from downtown Chicago up to Wilmette with the main reason for traveling that far (well it's pretty far for an Uber) being this place. We couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Such a fun place and the guys running it are awesome. The food is really, really good. Lot of meat based dishes (unsurprisingly) cooked beautifully. I know one member of the party who previously worked as a chef at a fairly prestigious UK restaurant said the octopus was literally one of the best things he had ever had! The steak was delicious as were all the sides we tried. Well worth a visit if you are ever in the area.

    Went to the chop house for the first time and last I might add! Got there around 7 pm on a Saturday night, should of known then as there were only a total of four tables with people at them. Service was decent at first, but got bad very fast. Our salad never arrived, but our meals did. Asked if we could have our salad first and they sent back the food. The food came after we had our salad, my pork chop was cold. Obviously, they just let our food sit in the back while it was fully cooked. My dates fish was at proper heat. She ate her meal completely before my pork chop even came back. After at least ten minutes of waiting the pork chop came back. Thought maybe they were cooking a new one, however, it was the same one as evidenced by the few bites I took before returning it were still missing from the chop. The pork chop tasted just like ham, Really not very good at all. Time to pay and wanting to get out of this place, gave the waiter a coupon that says it expires 12 31 2015. He said they no longer accept that coupon. Unreal! The owner came out and this guy was just rude and could not believe the way he talked to us. We told him about the missing salad and the cold food and he said sorry we are short handed. Really! Only 6 tables had people sitting at them. Bottom line: bad service, rude owner, overpriced and the food not very good.

    It was so nice to get a first-class steak, cooked perfectly, without the noise and drama that we often find at the high-end steak chains. Nice desserts (bananas Foster!) and wine list seemed fine; I noticed no corkage fee on Wednesdays. We have been twice and both times left happy and relaxed. The proprietor is right there to help wait tables and really was gracious with everybody. We were glad to have made a reservation; this is not a big restaurant and walk-ins were being turned away...not a bad sign either.

    This was a real treat for my wife and I. We had one of the greatest waiters ever and he was amazing in his service. We ate scallop appetizers, heirloom tomatoes salad and then my wife the cobia whitefish and I had the smoked pork chop. Their food was outstanding. It was incredible. We had the lava cake for desert so we were bloated like ticks when we left. Btw, it was Thursday, which was bourbon night. I had excellent bourbon for five bucks a glass. Strongly recommend this place.

    Creative but pricey. Several items were sold out from a very limited menu. I reconciled the limited menu based on the fact that the restaurant is small and intimate. The items we did order were all very good.

    Food was decent, however service was bad. My steak was very good, but my husband ordered a steak medium and it came out rare. He did not bother to complain because the service was slow the entire night except when we first walked in and sat down. They brought bread and wine immediately and then after that they stopped by a few times but always seemed in a hurry . The waiter told us about the deserts as he walked away and was talking to another waiter. I would not recommend this place.

    We really wanted to like this place, since despite the increasing number of restaurants in Wilmette there still aren't many good choices. It was quiet and very pleasant inside. The main service people (owners? managers?) were OK, but the chef-in-training more than made up for it. He was lively, had a great sense of humor, was very attentive and capable. The food was definitely OK, but seemed like it was trying too hard (too much sauce/dressing, etc). Guildhouse in Glencoe was a somewhat similar style, but with a much lighter touch. For the price, Chop House wasn't worth it.
