The food here is really nice. The restaurant unfortunately has heating and air conditioning issues. Winter is really cool for dining, but if you put on a shawl or sweater and stay away from the window table it is a lovely restaurant with interesting food.

My wife and I went to Cabs last night. I had the beef tenderloin with blue cheese and andouille and my wife had the salmon. We split the Cabs signature salad. Everything was awesome. Great food, reasonably priced, and great atmosphere. Easily the best restaurant in Glen Ellyn, without question. Will definitely be back.

It has been an extended period of time since we last visited Cab's but decided to give it a try for New Year's Eve. It was a pleasant surprise to be at a very dynamic venue that made an excellent presentation both in atmosphere and in food. Much better than we have had in the past. We will be back... More

Food is very good. love the paealla and some other dishes. The service is decent and ambience is pretty relaxed. If you are looking for good food, you can't go wrong with this place. I visit once every few months for dinner.

We hadn't been to Cab's since the ownership changed so we were curious. Chef Luis Allyon is still making some great food. We grazed on the tuna tartare which is still fabulous. We also tried the Beef and Sweet Potato Taco which is ground hanger steak, queso fresco,roasted tomatillo salsa, onion, & cilantro between two soft corn tortillas. We tasted... More

I had looked forward to dining at Cab's for quite some time and finally had the opportunity last night. It was disappointing. I'm not going to belabor the point and wax eloquent but here are the reasons: 1) We made on-line reservations, had an e-mail confirmation but they had no record. Not a big deal, the staff rolled with it... More

We love Cab's. My wife and I have a very special connection to the restaurant. I asked my wife to marry me (she excepted) and we brought our youngest child with us when she was very young. It has a very special place in our family.

We have made this our go to place for a great casual meal. We like trying new venues, but it is good to know this restaurant is there. We dined on a very busy Saturday night. Service was slightly slow, but we expect that when a place is packed . The wait staff provided realistic times for drinks and food.... More

This place is great to pop in for a quick bite and a drink. The tapas are quite tasty and unique. We had the tacos and kefta slider. The beef taco was bland but the lamb taco and slider were very good. The atmosphere was less than desired with a crowded bar in the center of the room. The bartender... More
