Not many Old School places like this any more. We love going here!!
Terrific service. Quality ingredients. Wide variety menu. Delicious. Recommend for romance.
Mentioned birthday when I made the reservation but no sparkling desert like others... musicians did sing happy birthday!
Hope got credit for my reservation here.
Wedding anniversary for me and my wife. Food was solid but the service was fair. I pretty much only seen the waiter while delivering food. The best part of the night was the music (violinist and accordionist playing)
Been going here since I was a kid with my father and family, the food and the interior is like walking into another time when restaurants were welcoming and family run! LOve this place and hope it sticks around for another 40 years!
I like flaming deserts and they have 3 cherries jubilee, banana foster and peach flambé .
All delicious all fun all gone
Food was good. Could do without the music. I can appreciate employing aging musicians, but they were terrible.
This place was wonderful! Im surprised it took us this long to venture over there. Will be back soon!
Enjoyed a weeknight dinner with friends. We're glad our friend suggested it because we were trying to find a place in between near north Chicago and the north suburbs. The place was decorated in dark Italian pieces with a baby grand piano next to the bar. There were also musicians such as an accordion and violinist who stopped by tables to play songs. We were pleased with the menu choices. Meals were priced fairly especially entrees included salad, soup AND potato or pasta. There was also food leftover for us to take home. We also liked the pizza bread starters which they offered free along with the Italian loaf bread. All in all, the restaurant served comfort Italian food that was plentiful and flavorful.
I had high expectations since this restaurant uses OpenTable and I have always had good experiences dining at restaurants using your service. However, it was not to be the case this time. The service was horrible although the waitress was nice enough. It took 20 minutes to get waited on! It took 40 MINUTES to get a bottle of wine!! The food came before the wine, one entree was lukewarm and another's sauce was too salty to even enjoy. To add to the menagerie of miseries, the waitress messed up one of the charges for the credit card. I'm not sure how this
restaurant has so many good reviews, but I will NEVER go back again. Perhaps some staff from OpenTable can visit and see how they fare.
Excellent food and service. It have been quite some time since I had been there due to a job change and I really enjoyed it. Old Chicago style restaurant
Love this place. ❤️
Loved the food and the ambiance!!!
The service was a little slow, but otherwise very friendly waiters and a good experience. :)
THE EVENING WAS FABULOUS FOR MY HUSBAND AND HIS BEST FRIENDS BIRTHDAY DINNER. WE HAD OYSTER ROCKEFELLER, CALAMARI AND BRUSCHETTA FOR APPETIZERS. WE HAD SOUP AND SALAD WITH OUR DINNER. THE ZUPPA DE MARE WITH ALL THE SEAFOOD WITH AWESOME. AND ALSO THE RICHES SPECIAL YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG. THE BAKE ALASKA WAS SO REFRESHING FOR DESSERT. GREAT TIME!!!
First time at Sabatino's, but it won't be the last. My husband and I had a fantastic meal. I also thought the price was excellent, considering the entrees include soup, salad, bread and pizza bread. You won't got away hungry!!! Worth the trip. Consider this restaurant, when you want some authentic Italian food. You won't be disappointed.
5 Star service with AMAZING authentic Italian food!
There was a hair in our Oysters Rockefeller, but they promptly brought out a full additional order at no charge. I filled up on bread too much before my meal so I missed out on the bananas foster, but I saw another table enjoying theirs and I only wished my stomach had another compartment. The portions were very good and the place was quite busy, which added to the energy.
The piano man was outstanding, and we sang a few songs with the crowd. It trailed off a bit just before midnight, but everyone was friendly tastefully ill-mannered (alcohol will do that to you). I recommend this restaurant!
Has long been a restaurant of consistent quality both in food and service.
Classic good eats!
We have been to Sabatino's many times and are NEVER disappointed!
i love old school places and good solid comfort food. You cannot do better than this place. i would eat here all the time if i could.
As always the meal the service theoutstanding attention to detail was outstanding!!
Wonderful service and Excellent Food. We haven't been there in so long because we moved out of the area but went for a special birthday dinner and forgot how much we love this place.
They give you more than enough food and the quality is superb.
We were celebrating my wife's and her friends birthdays, they are a day apart. Was welcomed at the bar as we walked in, my wife and i enjoyed a drink and a lively conversation at the bar as we waited for the other couple to arrive. We were seated as soon as they arrived, within a few minutes the servers arrived with an order of pizza bread and complimentary bruschetta, all was good in the world! The meals were amazing, I had the Rick's special. We were not rushed at all, spent 2 hours eating and drinking. Then off to the piano bar where we spent hours singing with other "groupies" enjoying great cocktails and fellowship. All in all, the perfect night out!!
We have dined here many times and are always completely satisfied with our experience. It's a place where we know we can take family/friends and be assured they will be happy.
Old world Italian at its best! Love the food and the creepy guys who sing and play the hilariously out-of-tune violins.
This is one of the best restaurants in the City of Chicago, and has been for many years.
The only complaint was waiting 45 min after having a reservation. Overall everything else was great and food excellent.
Old fashioned but charming and fabulous, great food; strolling violin player.
Wonderful service and great food! The food is absolutely delicious and the portions are generous! All entrees come with soup and salad. The Stracciatella soup is to die for. They also serve bread and pizza bread complimentary before your meal. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. You will definitely leave here with a full stomach and food for tomorrow night! You can also get tableside cherries jubilee or banana fosters. So fun to see the fire by your table, and it's only $12! Can't be beat.
Always wonderful and consistently good. I love the pork chops and the pasta.
Enzo make a spectacular dessert, never a miss. This the reason that we come here.
Absolutely wonderful service, very attentive and helpful. Food was delicious as always. We were celebrating our anniversary and had the delight of dining in their private booth so it was the perfect level of private but still enjoyable and a good noise level. One of our favorites ❤️
Had dinner with friends we had not seen in a while, it was recommended by my daughter. Menu has a lot of choices, if you cannot find something you like you are way to particular. This is a great Italian restaurant, it has a very comfortable feeling and the service is very good. Be prepared for a large meal and the wine list is very good. For beer drinkers there is nothing on tap, only bottles.
Great appetizers, wonderful soup, salad and crusty loaf of bread. However, the main dish was flavorless, very bland. Even the butter for my wife's lobster was weak and tasteless.
Great food in generous portions and wonderful service. A Chicago classic. Don't ever change.
Server was excellent. Very attentive. We had a very good timr
Great food and service! Wish the piano player was there!
It was wonderful as always.
My friends and I had a wonderful meal. We also enjoyed the Cherries Jubilee.
