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

Food is average to good, though plate presentation is a mess. Duck with cabbage was nice, but looks like a pile of slop. Pork was not thrilling. Pear salad was selling nothing; blah and pricey for its size.The interior needs redecorating and the ambiance suffers mightily. Sitting in the back near the ugly wire mesh kitchen window is depressing (block... More

We have visited here a few times. We enjoy sitting at the bar, enjoying the wine and appetizer or tapas menu. Service is friendly, attentive, and relaxed. This is a restaurant too so you can have a full dinner at bar or at tables. Wine by glass or bottle is enjoyable. Beer and drinks also available. Food is good, soup... More

We intended to visit a different restaurant in downtown Glen Ellyn, but the wait there was crazy so we walked across the street. We did not regret our decision. The place has a nice, relaxing vibe with just enough bustle. We were there on a Saturday night. Food was very good!

They have the best martini's in Glen Ellyn! The cheese flight is great. They also have an assortment of unusual items. Great place for a date night.

I hadn't been to Cab's in quite a few years, but I had a great birthday dinner here on a Thursday evening in November. We had reservations for 6:15 and were seated right away. I had a well-made martini, salad with beets, crab cakes/forbidden rice/squash, and split a creme brulee. The creme brulee is served cold, which is correct according... More

This is a great date place. Small restaurant and bar, but wonderful food. The wine selection is great and simi-reasonable in price.
