Established in 1952, the William Tell Restaurant quickly became a landmark place to dine in the Western Suburbs. We were renown for our elegant dining room, old world charm and European style menu. In 2005, the restaurant was completely remodeled and the menus totally redone. Now the new William Tell still maintains the flavor of its old world charm, but offers a slightly more casual elegance. With the new menu, our customers will find a mixture of old masterpieces and some new classic and modern offerings. As always, great hospitality, superb cuisine and wonderful ambience will insure that you have a fantastic dining experience here at the William Tell.

We were celebrating my parents 60th wedding anniversary. We arrived and there was no wait, our table was ready. It was NYE, so complimentary champagne. The waitress was AMAZING. We had my two great nephews - ages 2 and 4 and she bent over backwards to keep them happy as well as the rest of us. The food was wonderful, the ambiance beautiful - especially the pianist playing requests.

We were a party of 8 on Saturday December 23. We were seated, I believe, in the
lounge where the bar is. The meal was by far the worst I have had in years in any place in any location. My expensive Delmonico steak was old and badly cooked. The others at the table universally reported terrible food. I have, in the past, had buffets there that have been very good. BUT, this was a meal unworthy of any reputable restaurant.

They only had one room open for Mother's Day Brunch. The line was long and it was very cramped. I've gone there for many years but will not return.

We had an early afternoon reservation for my wife's birthday before attending a concert show. Maureen was an attentive server, and a friendly staff assisted her as a team. The Hostess made a conscious effort to acknowledge the occasion! The food was well-prepared with the price commensurate to the idea of a special occasion splurge. A prearranged partner florist delivery awaited us at our table and created the desired mood. Perfect evening dinner offering!

We chose William Tell Restaurant for an early Monther's Day celebration. Sunday brunch, unlimited champagne, seafood filled buffet style meal was more than we expected. If you don't mind the old-style interior - the food, service and overall experience was great!

Kinda a bridge from the past of supper club/restaurants of yesteryear. Some things they continue to do well and some need improvement. Vegetables were a tad overcooked. Wonderful warm bread with hard ice cold butter. I was not impressed with my martini. My steak was very good. Great cut and well prepared. I think they need to step up their game in certain areas to be more congruent with their pricing. Not a bad meal, but neither was it great...other than the steak

We were there early but no one entered the restaurant the entire time we were there so that always concerns me about freshness of food. Don't get me wrong, the food was fresh.

Between the grilled Salmon and the Prime Rib special, there was more than enough food. The food was prepared very well and came out in good time. It helped that our 6pm Saturday reservation was at a slow time. It was great to see that when you order a meal, you get soup/salad, main course, side(s), and a desert (at least with the special). Our server, Stefani, was fantastic. She was more than accommodating. If she even thought there was something we were not happy with, she offered to make the exchange. Overall, great experience.

The waitstaff although pleasant and kind were overbearing and because there's very little business in there they are constantly at your table standing there staring and asking if you need anything. It was definitely overkill. The salad was mediocre for the price and the waitress brought us tiny little onions soups and never asked us what size we really wanted. The onion soup was fine although nothing to write home about. The roles were warmed but the butter was frozen. I was there once before and had the same experience and forgot. Now I know I will not be back. The restaurant needs to up the ante big time if they want to attract customers. You need to change the menu, change the cook, update the decor and retrain the staff. Best of luck

William Tell has been in this location forever. I believe they get a bad rap because earlier their food wasn't great and the service was marginal. We have now been to the restaurant 3 times in the last 7 or 8 months. The food each time was excellent. The servers are very attentive. Since there are not a lot of patrons in the restaurant, if you don't want the servers hovering, you just need to gently let them know. They are doing their best to provide you with an excellent experience. The last time we went, three of us had the filet mignon. It was cooked completely to each of our specifications, each of us wanting a little different. I wanted the blue cheese topping and it came with just the right amount, which other restaurants I find totally overwhelm the filet with the blue cheese. I believe it is worth trying William Tell again if you haven't for a long time. It's a tad on the pricey side but if you are going for a Friday or Saturday dinner or special occasion...certainly not out of line.
