I was looking for a place to go after my wife's graduate school commencement ceremony and found this place. I hadn't heard much about it firsthand from customers, but I was impressed by the photos and menu and took a chance. I'm glad I did, because the food was outstanding, the service was great, and the cost was more than reasonable. For starters, everything we ate/drank was either as expected or better, and that says a lot because our group had a pretty diverse range of orders, including London broils, risottos, and vegetable dishes. The service was top-notch. When our order of appetizers came in, the individual delivering informed us that a single piece (one item from a stack of 10) fell on the ground and that he would be bringing us a replacement shortly. Not only did none of us even notice that anything was amiss when he first arrived, but he returned with three more pieces instead of just one. Finally, about the value: if you asked me to find a place in a Chicagoland neighborhood that competently and confidently serves large prime rib specials for around $30, I would have called you 'uninformed' to say the least.

Now, something to keep in mind. This restaurant has less of a fine dining feel and more of a relaxed, almost cafe-type of vibe, at least towards the back where the larger tables are. Don't get me wrong, we were wearing suits and dresses and didn't feel out of place for a second, but if you're looking for a romantic candlelit dinner for two, either ask to sit towards the front door or consider another establishment. HOWEVER. If you want to enjoy a quality meal at a friendly place, where you won't have to fight for a table or take out a loan to cover the tab (5:30pm Saturday reservations were somehow unnecessary; around $200 for six entrees, multiple rounds of drinks, and appetizers), this should be top of the list.

Personal recommendations: Kentucky Mule (drink), Dynamite Sticks (appetizer), Signature Meat Loaf (entree).

Our dinners were good. The waiter forgot the Pelegrino water with lime I ordered. I don't know if we were charged for it or not. I liked the roomy table placement in that we weren't sitting "on top" of each other. Being there for dinner this past Saturday night, it would have been nice if there were more washrooms! The person I was waiting in line with to use the washroom remarked that he could see waiting to use a washroom in a dive bar, but not in a nice restaurant.

Food was delicious and service was outstanding as usual. I had the veggie burger and my husband ordered the London Broil. Both tasted great. He also ordered the homemade banana cream pie. He love it especially the crust. We can't wait to go back. We always love the food and the servers are so friendly.

We went for the breakfast buffet. It is small and strangely arranged in a dim hallway behind the dining rooms. The selections were rather limited and the food was just ok. Not sure why this gets such good reviews. The people who work there are very nice.

Winberie's has been in Oak Park, IL for a number of years and they haven't lost their touch. The food was delicious and each person in our party of four was happy with their dinner selection. The salmon was fabulous! We all opted for desserts including a key lime pie tart, flourless chocolate cake and the Nestle's Tollhouse cookie pie - yum! We were there on a Tuesday night and were meeting friends from out of town - fortunately it wasn't a busy night at Winberie's because we spent over three hours visiting with each other. We never felt rushed and truly had a delightful evening.

Two issues--server was gone for long periods of time and one of the dinners the Chicken Marsala just did not taste good. Chicken seemed to have an almost sweet teriyaki flavor rather than the traditional wine and mushroom. Haricot verts were tough and bland.

Hangar Steak was very good but could have used more of the horseradish butter to soak into the frites.

Will go again, but probably stick with FO Soup and the Steak.

We went for brunch on a Sunday. There was a nice selection of foods. Loved the freshly made waffles and the French Toast was very good. I was disappointed with the dessert selection. They seemed like they came out of a box from Jewel. Overall nice environment. I would go again.
