Great place to stop for a quick bite while shopping
The food and service was very good. The restaurant was dirty. The wood atop all the booths had a layer of dust on them. Restaurant needs a good clean.
Service was great!
Not crowded but Poor service, forgot to bring soup & juice for kids. Food mediocre. Disappointing experience.
Dined there for lunch and the food was good, especially the lobster bisque. Overall, I would highly recommend for good food and service. Only drawbacks- interior is a bit dated and the restaurant does not have its own restroom. You have to exit and use Nordstrom’s restroom in the store. But, would dine there again.
Amazing experience, great staff
I made a reservation for 6:30pm. We got there and they didn’t seat us because they closed at 7pm. I’m not sure I understand why they allowed us to make a reservation in the first place. They could have called us and informed us of the situation. By the restaurant refusing to let us sit I have now lost 100 points on open table because “I didn’t show up” according to the app.
Make on line reservation for Father’s Day and showed up for reservation and restaurant is closed :(
Our server was very attentive. Food was delicious.
It could of been better for the price of the dishes
Nice lunch. good food. our server, Brandon was awesome! Nice wine selection.
It was our first visit for suddenly planned early Mother’s Day dinner.
We had very pleasant experience, tasty food & efficient service. Thanks.
The service was phenomenal! We were greeted right away and our orders were in a timely manner.
Looking for a mid-way meeting place for dining with our sons for Mother's Day, Ruscello fit the bill perfectly. Their Covid accommodations allowed us to feel safe while dining in a quaint setting. Our entire party were pleased with their selections for entrees and desserts.
As a vegetarian, I found a few wonderful dishes which were adapted for us. There was also a Beyond burger. Lunch in a department store has a bit of bustle and noise but the service was excellent. Our server made certain we did not get any non-vegetarian sauce or ingredient. It was a very satisfying experience despite the limited veggie items. Prices are moderate for the ample portions. It was a good respite from Oakbrook shopping.
The food options are always great! I ordered and enjoyed the blackened tacos. I also ordered the lemon cookies to go! They are tge absolute best! Can't wait until their lobster avocado toast is back on the menu!
Unfortunately, Ruscello Oak Brook has wrong hours in Opentable and is not seating at all the times that one can make reservations. The host’s attitude on customers making a fairly long drive to have dinner there and be told by the host that we could not be seated, with indifference or worse, was sad and not up to Nordstrom, or even basic, standards. Those wrong hours on Opentable continue.
Always a pleasant, tasty meal at Nordstrom's Ruscello. And the Shrimp & Arugula Salad with Sweet Corn (and polenta croutons) might be the best salad anywhere, anytime.
This is one of our favorite places to eat at oak brook mall located in one of our favorite stores! The dining staff are all kind, efficient and attentive. The food here is always delicious. (We always come back for the shrimp & arugula with sweet corn salad - it is incredible!)
Wonderful experience! The food was amazing! I had my newborn baby and they made accommodations for us to sit in a tucked away corner for easy breastfeeding! My friend and I had an enjoyable experience!
I would highly recommend Ruscello, the service is amazing, just the right amount of attention without being too pushy. Great menu with seasonal specials. I've had the Cilantro Lime Chicken salad many times and never once was it anything but fresh! Pastas are delicious, appetizers as well. Great atmosphere too.
It was just mediocre. The level of service has declined.
Delicious salads and soups. Love the food. Great server who was friendly and knowledgeable.Will be back soon!!
Have eaten here many times. Great for lunch after shopping
The food always tastes fresh and is very good. The restaurant was clean and service was quick. I will definitely go back.
It was closed even though we were able to make reservations
Great service and good food. Menu is limited but there were some specials. We were seated in a booth with guests filling booths on either side of us. They had placed manicure plexi glass barriers between the booth with holes near head level in them. This does not seem like an adequate public health measure.
The Tuscan salmon was good. There were to be Brussel sprout included in this dish, but I only found half of one on my plate. Caramel cheesecake was good. Service was good. Nice atmosphere, quiet.
Our server (Luis) was very professional, friendly and hard working. We enjoyed our dining experience.
Delicious lunch with a friend. Entrees were wonderful. Server prompt and friendly. Downside, had the warm cookie with ice cream dessert and my friend burned her finger on the iron serving dish. Let customers know how hot it is or better yet remove from cooking dish before serving. Especially if serving to children.
My order was so wrong. I paid $20 for a salad that was just greens!
One of our favorite places, we are so happy to be eating there again. Great food & great service!
My wife had her best-ever Old Fashioned. The food was better than anticipated, and our server was especially wonderful. Our new Oak Brook "late lunch and a shopping beverage" go-to.
Had a very nice table next to the window, the food and service were great
Great offering of healthy dishes and variety with seasonal specials
Not sure what I expected from this place but it looked like a cafeteria upon arrival. Very few options for non meat eaters. Prices were in my opinion very high for what you get. A salad was $14 and it was nothing special. On a plus side our waiter was very good. Went with friends for dinner but was not impressed. Maybe it would be better for lunch
Seated next to 2 kids Running around the table and yelling for 45 minutes
Nordstrom's high quality for product and service. A little pricey for quantity of food but about on par with rest of Oakbrook dining.
Food was terrible.
Live for and love this place!!
