I first visited The Stained Glass last year with a friend who, sadly, has since died. I was there again over the weekend with my wife and several family members. We has a WONDERFUL dinner -- perfect in every way.
The salad/appetizer course were superb -- especially the shaved Brussel sprouts salad.
The entrees were great, with special praise for the duck, the whitefish, and the scallops.
Desserts were awesome, with the warm pecan tart w/saboyan gelato leading the pack.
Service was attentive, and all the fine details were also perfect.
We'll definitely be back!
An off night. Been there plenty, but the service was horrible. Our apps got there before our beverage. Server disappeared. She was PLENTY nice, but BAD.
We went there for a friend’s birthday and had a wonderful time! The food was terrific and the service was great.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. We have been coming for years like that the wait staff is stable and knowledgeable.
Our favorite spot in Evanston did not disappoint. Wonderful food expertly prepared. BLT and pecan tart were stand outs. Avoid the silk tart which was soggy and flavorless.
Excellent food in a well-run establishment. Creative menu items with gluten free and vegan options. Best choice in Evanston for a business dinner.
Crabcake was disappointing for the price. Tasted like lots of breadcrumbs, very little crabmeat.
Had rack of lamb. Tasty n tender but presentation was not up to level for level of restaurant. Food runner not properly trained to put plate on table properly. I had expected better service for a nice restaurant.
Our server Joe was very nice.
It’s clear that this a place that cares about food. And the service was wonderful too.
Food good, women bad!!
Excellent meal for our 21st wedding anniversary. Starter course, the Brussels sprouts was interesting but raw shredded sprouts are a little hard to adjust to when you are used to cooked sprouts. Our main courses, the whitefish and the scallops, were excellent, especially the risotto that came as a bed for the scallops. Desert of three different types of crime brûlée was also great. I had asked that two glasses of. Hampagne be on the table when we were seated. They were. Lovely meal and very nice setting.
Good service. Food was tasty & arrived timely. Enjoyed the crab cake..could have used a bit more sauce which was quite tasty. Disappointed when my husband ordered a Southern Comfort manhattan they did not have Southern Comfort. The scallots and whitefish were both good. Creme bruele sampler didn't live up to our expectations.
Wonderful meals. Fish perfectly cooked. Delicious French wine. My only disappointment was where we were seated. We had specifically asked for a quiet table to celebrate a anniversary. 6:30 reservation so there were many tables to choose from. Next thing we know there was a party of 20 being seated in the room directly behind my chair and the patrons spilling out of the room standing practically on top of our table and I am getting elbowed and knocked in the head with purses. Very hard to hear each other so it really spoiled the romantic mood we had in the beginning.
Mother’s Day brunch
My wife did not care for the chili special. Our 2 top table was too close to a loud 4 top, so they were distracting to our conversation.
Menus was a little contrived & very rich
Service was warm ,friendly & attentive
We were greeted with graciousness and felt appreciated
The dinner was good and service was great. Just too much noise from the next (large) party.
Our favorite place to dine! Kevin and his staff are the best! Everything is delicious, and the wine flights are amazing. Whether you stop by the bar for a drink and appetizers, and settle in for a lovely dinner in the beautiful dining room, you'll have a wonderful experience.
Good food. Attentive but slow service. Waiter could not keep the order straight and forgot several things. Noisy
The steak and the chicken were excellent, As was the brussels sprouts salad. One of the best restaurants in downtown Evanston. Worth a visit.
Easter Sunday brunch was just average, friends recommended the restaurant but it was just ok
Food was incredible. It is the M-star(not officially) place to take the parents when they’re in town!
Very tasty food! I loved the combination of flavors in the dishes.
Overall great place. I thought my meal could have been much hotter it was barely warm but the quality was great. Beer was excellent.
Prices were a bit on the high side and I thought the specials were overpriced. We had the warm pecan tart with gelato, it was really really good.
Great wine selections, try the flights! Servings are so generous , we had salad, truffled eggs and dessert(to share). The entrees were great last time, but very large for us.
Food was well done, not a huge variety of entrees but enough to have several options. Wide wine list with option for flights.
The food is always fantastic and the server was great.
Loved this little gem! Food was so delish. I had the butter lettuce salad and the Burrata Ravioli. Both were outstanding. The hubs had the Steak Frites which came in a sauce that was darn near drinkable, it was that good. Wine flights are fun and reasonably priced. We weren't thrilled with our creme brulee trio which lacked pizazz/flavour. Definitely a place to visit again.
Outstanding whitefish preparation and salad. Service was beautiful also. The regular creme brulee in the sampler was the best; the others were more a good idea than a successful concoction. But on the whole, a most enjoyable evening!
Food did not live up to expectations, heavily salted, and flavors just not there for every dish. Would not go back
Our entrees we're excellent, this is definitely a place fit for foodies. Vibe and cocktails we're a lot of fun. Worth the drive to Evanston
Great food and service. A little on the pricey side but enjoyable
For my birthday food was excellent & we received great service
Chicken outstanding. Service fantastic. Wine list solid. Great overall dinner
Excellent food from the cheese selection to the pistachio crusted mahi mahi and the decadent chocolate cake. Also love the sparkling sampler
Very nice place with good service. Food was overpriced for quality. We both ordered steak and frites with the same cook and they came out noticeably different and for the cut it should have been cheaper. Overall a nice place for a fancy date.
The duck was great. The chicken was great, too. So were the seafood bisque and the house charcutirie.
As I say each time, a steadfast great restaurant!
The restaurant, was empty and were placed at a small table up against the wall with the pillar sticking out between me and my wife. The whole other side was wide open and noticed many nicer tables were open as we left.
Thus is the second time I have visited. The first was for a holiday buffet. Tonight was just dinner. Food and service are consistently top notch. Now on my favorites list.
Nice place to eat. Food was very good and wine selection perfect. Restaurant is a bit noisy.
