Had a great meal here. The salmon dish was very unusual and delicious. The server was attentive and helpful with suggestions. I'll be back!

Not a good place to eat. The Chopped Salad was missing avocado and hard-boiled egg. I ordered the Italian Herb-Roasted Portobello sandwich, and was told they no longer offer it. They suggested a French-Dip sandwich instead. Now, I'm not a vegetarian, but if someone orders a portobello sandwich, wouldn't you ask if they'd like another vegetarian option before making suggestions? Anyhow, I got the French-dip, which was TINY. It was served on a dinner roll. Weak. I don't think we'll go back.

We had been after the remodel and didn't love it and found it to be over priced but decided to give it another shot. This time we had a great time, food was great and reasonably priced. Service was good but not excellent. We will be back again.

We thought we would try a new restaurant for dinner after an evening out. We enjoyed the friendly service and good food. Their beer selection appealed to my husband, who is fussy about his brews. Lovely place.

We went on a Sunday for lunch. We arrived at 1. It looked like they had not cleaned from the night before. The floor was dirty as were several tables. We went to sit at what appeared to be an available booth, but the seats were dirty and there were fries all over the floor. We found a table that was clean. Service was good, but the food was just average, and for the price definitely not worth it. We had burgers, which were good, but at $13.00 for a plain burger they should be. We had soup, which was not very good, priced at $5.00 a cup and $10.00 a bowl. Also not worth it. I think if you were going just to sit at the bar without eating it woudl be fine, but not very good for lunch.

This was a casual lunch to discuss family Secret Santa plans - a meeting between past and present organizers. We had a fabulous waiter who listened to each of us and fit the restaurant's menus and offerings to our needs.
He used his knowledge of the Glenview House's capabilities and adapted them to our desires. Forinstance, one of our party suggested Goose Island Matilda beer. Two of us had never tasted it, so our waiter offered to bring three glasses and we shared the beer. Tasty. Then we each ordered a bottle. Similar things happened with the main meal and dessert.
His service and the great food will bring us back again.

We thought we were making a reservation for the upstairs dining room. Instead we were seated in the bar due to a private party upstairs. Open Table either wasn’t aware of this or chose not to mention it. The bar was noisy, crowded, and the service was very slow. We were very overdressed.

Ruth & I had an nice window table to people-watch the people eating on the deck and the weekend traffic in Glenview ... Our sever and service was fine and relaxed. I enjoyed my Kobe sliders. Ruth had the fish tacos, previously very good, but not this time ... The fish and vegies were just fine, but the tacos were mushy and it was useless to try and pick up the taco to eat. Even scraping the taco with a spoon was unrewarding ... Bleagh !!!

We discussed this with the server but did not hear back from anyone in the kitchen. Often with our previous meals we get a table check from someone in the kitchen or at least a greeting ...

Took my two grandchildren, ages 6 and 9. They love watching the trains from the outdoor seating area. Cuban sandwich was great! And the kids enjoyed the mac & cheese and burgers. Pleasant attentive waitstaff. Always a stop for us when in Glenview.

We liked going to Glenview House the few times we were there before but this time it was different and not such a good experience. Never go at 6 p.m. On a Saturday night. They said it was a shift change and that was why we were ignored for so long while the servers each felt like we were NOT their table.

THE NOISE LEVEL WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE TO DECREASE THE NOISE, LIKE ACOUSTICAL CEILING TILES, WINDOW DRAPERIES, ETC.
IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CONVERSE. CONSULT A SOUND ENGINEER.

It had been a while since we were last at Glenview House. The reasons we hadn't been back were mediocre, overpriced food and ho-hum service. The good news is service was better this time around but nothing else has changed. We'd hoped with the new seasonal menu, things would be different. Instead, skimpy portions of whatever the Sysco truck delivered, devoid of presentation, priced at a level to expect much better. It's a shame too because the Glenview House has a cool pub vibe and is in a great location. Oh well.

I was a first timer at The Glenview House and I confess, was taken in by the photos of the dining room and lounge found on the restaurant web site. This shows an attractive dining room, and a different level of style than that found in the street level bar. So I was a little surprised to learn when I arrived that dinner was served in the bar/back room only. I suppose there is some sort of disclaimer/explanation that I would have seen had I read the fine print on the website. But I didn't. Oh well, live and learn. Anyway, the food was good, not great. The prices though were reasonable, so no complaints. And the beer selection was impressive and the service friendly. All in all, its a nice neighborhood joint...a legitimate restaurant and by no means a dive...but nothing out of the ordinary either.

Service was terrible. Hoatess was awkward and after mishearing my name walked away. Then a man I assume was the manager came over and asked me if I was the party whom the hostess had mistaken me for, and then he seemed bothered. I had to ask over and over to get water. Food was mediocre. Won't be back.

We went the night before Thanksgiving - the bar area was bustling when we arrived a bit before our 6:30pm reservation. A mix of families in booths and singles at the bar. We were seated in the back dining room, with one other party already present. We started with the lobster dip, a very rich combination of gruyere cheese and bits of lobster, served with garlic toast. The appetizer came out of the kitchen very quickly. Next up was the three beef hamburger (braised short rib, prime rib, ground chuck) ordered medium, and an order of chicken wings with buffalo sauce. The back dining room had gotten more crowded at this point, which may have explained the surprisingly long wait for the order. However, the burger was cooked perfectly and the chicken wings were temperature hot and had plenty of spice. Service was attentive throughout. The only quibble is prices seem a few dollars high for what you receive, but it has been this way here for awhile.
