a favorite of my sister's family and they took us there for our anniversary dinner. We had a great time, four of us shared 5 plates and two sides. Great flavors, fun presentation and atmosphere (loud and festive really). Not sure how anybody really thinks $10/plate is really that expensive. they now have a second side to the restaurant that...

Been here 3 times and can't wait to go back! Great food and great service. Drinks are good too. They use fresh fruits and other fresh ingredients. Very tasty. Great place to share and try many different dishes. They don't take reservations... So sometimes you must wait. But it's worth it.

This is one of those places where you can have a fantastic, extremely flavorful meal while still eating (somewhat light). Be sure to try the salsa sampler and the side of roasted corn. The food is fantastic. Good margaritas as well. Don't be surprised with a long wait for a seat. Finally, if you don't like a loud environment, this... More

Dined there with two other couples. Seating ended up being good after dire warnings about how cramped we would be. For those that like margaritas this is a good place I am told. I like a different kind of alcohol and initially they did not have it but some was found in another part of restaurant. My friend wanteed scotch... More

Don't let the architecture fool you. Located in a nondescript building on a busy street, Bien Trucha is an incredibly upscale restaurant with a remarkable menu. Nominally a Mexican Restaurant, this one defies pigeon-holing. Absolutely everything that we tried was spectacular! Appetizers sound very mundane - Ceviche and a Guacamole dish. These were anything but mundane. For entrees, we focused... More

I went to Bien Trucha with a few friends and we had an great experience. The space is very small which I think provides a nice intimate ambiance. There were 4 of us and of course we started out with margarita's. All were craft style and freshly made with no mixes! I had the Don Lujo which is their modern... More

With friends went out for Dinner. Nice atmosphere in downtown Geneva. Clientele was mixed, young, middle aged and older crowd. It was very busy but expected as much for a Saturday night. The energy was good but not overly revved up so felt comfortable right a way. There was a wait, so went into the bar area which was a... More

ok for a one time meal..overpriced, small portions, you cant really have your "own" dish as they only bring out one thing at a time, and whisk your plate away while food still in hand...more than likely wont return

The tacos are great and the margarita's good. However, guessing whether they have a table for you and then paying $80 for three tacos each and a couple of drinks seems a little heavy. I am not convinced that the gourmet Mexican tacos are worth that. It also seems to be trying too hard to be a Chicago downtown restaurant... More
