Beautiful bar, smallish restaurant space. Wine and drinks were excellent. My dinner was excellent; salmon with couscous and asparagus. My wife’s steak frites lacked seasoning. The staff took care of that issue and could not have been nicer about fixing the issue. We enjoyed the restaurant and will come back soon.

We tried the restaurant as part of Naperville Restaurant week. The portion size was perfect for my Salmon entree. The flatbread appetizer had a tricker crust than expected. The mousse was wonderful.

When this restaurant opened the menu struck us as too frou frou and too pricey for the entrees. A recent visit for lunch proved that the menu has been revised to be much more comfortable in all areas. A very nice selection of food which was presented very capably by the staff. We will make a visit for dinner in the future since that menu looks enticing. The restaurant is conveniently located in the Hotel Arista (a boutique hotel) with a parking garage nearby that makes a winter journey super convenient -- just a short trip up an elevator if you park on the ground floor and then a walk past two hallways to the small restaurant decorated in black tones. Only two other tables were occupied, but it was New Year's Day and very quiet. Recommended for a subdued lunch with a good selection of sandwiches and soups. A good selection of beverages as well. The room might get noisier if more guests come since the tables for two are set rather close together.

The menu is very appealing. However, they didn't have what I ordered. The baked onion soup was inedible...lukewarm and badly seasoned. The sandwich lacked substance. Service was pleasant. Ambiance was good.

The hotel is new, Atria, and convenient off of rt59 and north of I88. Waitress was very polite. Food was quite good and reasonably priced.

Food was good, well prepare, visually appealing but then we noticed that the fruit served in our brunch was moldy. The manager was very gracious however that left a lasting impression especially as a first visit experience. I would come back but would have my critical eye on every bite.

Visiting family and selected Sugar Toad for dinner. My wife and I are Vegan and the kitchen team created a very tasty dish of polenta with a wild mushroom ragout. Nicely done!! Thanks team!!!

Enjoyed everything from the atmosphere to the service to the meal. Was meeting with a friend and we did a lot a of chatting, but didn’t feel pressured to hurry through the meal.

We went for a Thursday lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. Hotel is hard to find, parking is difficult. There were only 4 customers, including us, during the entire lunch hour, although there was one couple that took food out. I would have to stand up and wave to get the waitress' attention. She stationed herself at the bar, and we were out of her sight much of the time. There was also a bus boy who couldn't have cared less. The food was excellent -- worthy of a crowd, but they couldn't handle more than 3 diners with the staff they currently have. We won't go back -- there are far better restaurants in the Naperville area.

My Saturday breakfast the the Sugar Toad was the perfect compliment to a glorious weekend wedding. The salmon Benedict was unforgettable. The heaping helping of smoked salmon was perfectly cooked and season and proved a great pairing with the breakfast potatoes, which were a tender, flavorful surprise. The coffee was bold, but not overpowering. The delightful servers made sure my cup was never empty. This is one instance when I wish I had two stomachs.

One of the worst restaurants I have ever eaten at. French Onion soup tasted like water, cheese wasn't melted correctly. The grilled calamari was the most repulsive food item my wife and I have ever seen/tasted. Absolutely disgusting.

I was looking for a special restaurant for Father's Day brunch. Decided on Sugartoad since we'd never been and I'd heard good things. When we arrived, was so disappointed to find out that it was just an ordinary hotel restaurant. No view. No ambiance. We ended up pulling two tables together (ourselves) and sitting in the bar since the dining room was packed with kids and dirty tables.

Food was disappointing as well. Eggs Benedict tasted like someone had mistakenly dumped the whole salt shaker in the sauce. Bloody Mary was a glass of tomato juice with ice.

All in all, a very disappointing first visit. Will not be back.

Went for brunch but they didn't have their brunch menu just the breakfast menu. Super disappointing.

Excellent service with attentive staff. The food and cocktails were imaginative and wonderfully flavorful. I love this gem of a place. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and had our 1 year old child with us and our waitress was so thoughtful and good with her. We enjoyed our meal without feeling rushed and they went the extra step to really making us feel special. The food was superb and the drinks were incredible! My drink even had smoke in the glass!

I was pretty disappointed with Sugar Toad. The reviews I read were very positive...I did not find this to be the case.
