Great food and an attentive owner who has a lot of pride in the food. Would return the next time I'm back in town.
Food was good and the staff was very accommodating.
We came to Sarajevo Restaurant to try authentic Bosnian cuisine and were not disappointed. We were greeted by the son of the owners who established the restaurant. He was very engaging and knowledgable of not only the menu but also answered our questions about his homeland. We are considering a visit to Sarajevo and found his information very informative. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to taste authentic and well prepared Bosnian cuisine!
Very good , authentic Bosnian food - owners (servers) are friendly and humorous. Ambience is pleasant, street parking available - The lamb shank is memorable. Highly recommended.
The owners (husband and wife) are from Bosnia and the food is authentic. The portions are large and they encourage sharing a main course between 2 people. The restaurant is attractive and parking is easy. It is a real gem if you like ethnic food.
For a Saturday night the restaurant was almost empty. After eating I could see why. Almost all of the meals were over cooked and not very well flavored. Our family and friends are very adventurous; we will try any cuisine but this place gives Bosnian food a bad name.
Easy parking. Walked in greeted by the owner with a smile and got a table right away. Ordered an appetizer and got it in just couple minutes. Entrée was served 15-20 minutes from the order time. I mean what else could I ask for. Food is very delicious and very reasonably priced. I will be back again. Thank you.
Excellent BYOB ethnic restaurant and a great value. Large servings. Fish done as nicely as ethnic meats. Home made bread with herbed olive oil outstanding.
Wonderful family run place. Good food, good value.
We were warmly welcomed when we arrived at Restaurant Sarajevo. There were three in our party. Our waitress was very helpful in guiding us through the menu. We started off with the Cold Appetizer Plate and the fried Calamari. We enjoyed these dishes very much. We also enjoyed the Garden Salad to share. Everything tasted very fresh! Salad dressing was minimal, perfect.
We then decided to share two entrees among the three of us so we could share different items. They had a special that night of Lamb Shank with vegetables, slow cooked, fall off the bone, description. We decided to order the Lamb Shank and the Bosnian Mixed Plate. The lamb shank arrived on the combination platter and was so small for a lamb shank and very dry, not fall off the bone, reminded me of a leftover one that was heated up in the oven. It was not juicy at all. The mixed plate included some nice sausages and a good chicken schnitzel, but the chicken medallions were also very dry.
We shared our disappointment with the waitress and asked her to pass it on to the chef. We also told her that she had shown us great service, no reflection on her for the entrees.
We would go back again but perhaps only go with appetizers to share.
Lovely neighborhood gem! If you live in the Ravenswood Manor/East Albany Park area this place is a must! The owner's daughter was our server and she was great! She made us feel comfortable and was very accommodating to our needs. The bread and cheese that it is brought to the table is delicious! The lamb and beef sausages were very flavorful and cooked perfectly! FYI it's BYOB.
My dining partner and I split three dishes: a cold meats & cheese appetizer, a feta salad, and a mix plate. The food was very tasty, and the service was excellent. Complimentary bread and farmer's cheese were served to start. The appetizer, salad, and entree followed at a nice pace. I particularly recommend anything with the feta cheese in it -- I loved it on the plate and on the salad. The farmer's cheese was great too.
Great food, ambience and staff. Quick am definitely fresh food. Excited to go back soon
Loved the food, service was excellent, and the owner made us feel part of the family even though it was our first time there.
Always a good time, great food and friendly family service.
Made to order food that tastes homemade and not assembly line
This was my third visit and I find Sarajevo to be consistently good food. The service is excellent. The owner, his wife and daughter all work together to make your experience very pleasant. I will return to this warm and comfy room with great tasting European style food. It's BYOB so the dinner is very reasonably priced.
Great dining experience....food is always great & the service top notch !!
Almost always have the chicken and never disappointed.
Friendly family; quality food well prepared. Comfortable, well appointed. A good place.
We cam here because of the good reviews and to explore a new area of the city and try Bosnian food... we were very hesitant walking up to the quiet lonely looking place on a Saturday afternoon.. BUT to our delight it smelled SO GOOD and had good reviews on the wall from the Chicago Tribune and the staff was so friendly. We sat by the little window and had the chicken medallions, which were awesome. A unique flavor for sure, but great! The Feta salad was perfect to share as a starter.. we would go back if we were in the neighborhood.. and glad we tried it!
