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.

Service was slow and food was cold. Wait staff friendly and helpful.

The food was very average. Definitely not worth the prices they charged.

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!!!
