Shakou Libertyville Ratings and Reviews
Good and ambiance was excellent. I celebrated my birthday with my daughters.
However, the service was very slow. It took a long time for the waitress to attend to us once seated. After that it felt like the waitress disappeared.
A bit more attention to customers by staff would make the experience better. It was not very busy so not sure why the service was not great.
went for my boyfriends 21st and our anniversary which happened to fall on the same day. we requested a booth in our online reservation but showed up an hour early, i said we didn't need a booth as the restaurant seemed full and i did t want to inconvenience anyone but they were very adamant and kind about getting us a booth and we got accommodated and sat immediately. our waitress was so sweet as well.
Great atmospheres make the food taste better and the dining experience more pleasurable, this place does that! Great for date night or night out with friends. We took our 10 year old with us (a very picky eater) and even she loved the place. Can’t wait to go back.
Love the food, service, staff and decor. The menu is overwhelming but the wait staff can make great recommendations. Highly suggest engaging in this conversation with your server to find the perfect appetizer, entree and cocktail. Wish there was valet parking though!
The diver scallop dinner was so heavy sodium laden I couldn't get the taste out of my mouth until next day. Someone has to tell the cook to back off on loading up the dishes on salt. I'm not sure if they're covering something up (fishy smell) or it's part of the process to way over salt things. 2 thumbs way down!!!
So disappointing. We used to love going to Shakou- unfortunately the food quality and service has deteriorated. My husband had to wait 10 minutes for a knife to cut his steak. By the time it arrived the steak was cold. For the price, the quality is just not there. My beef and fried rice was very greasy and my husband’s steak, though cold, was flavorless. It was interesting, too, that there were quite a few empty tables around us for a Friday night.
We had made a reservation and a table was reserved right in the front area - where it is noisy - we were accommodated with a different table (booth) quickly upon our request. ( we are 3 hearing impaired folks & a booth help reduce surrounding noise for us).
