Not impressed.

My friend and I waited over 15 minutes before anybody acknowledged we were even at the table. Water was not re-filled throughout our dinner and no one came by to see how we were doing. We even needed to place another order to go but we had to request the hostess to have our waiter come back to... read more

Contemporary decor, cool bar, good atmosphere. Sometimes a hiccup with service, and the room is small but I like the place and it generally has a very positive vibe.

A nice little gem in downtown Libertville. Clean and comfortable and tasty food offerings. I recommend the steak salad (generous portion), the BLT and the Reuben sandwich. Go and enjoy!

It was a cold evening but our 50th high school reunion group was comfortable on the rear outdoor patio that had been enclosed with plastic walls and ceiling, had a fireplace and outdoor heaters. This was a 'pub crawl' and part of Libertyville's First Friday monthly event. The appetizers were delish...chicken satay w/peanut sauce, quesidillas, quartered Reuben sandwiches that didn't... More

On a quiet Tuesday me and a friend met at 545 for dinner. Upon arrival the hostess was friendly, sat us quickly (it wasn't crowded), and our server quickly approached us with menus and water and we were off. The menu wasn't the same as what the website showed so instead of hangar steak that they didn't have we opted... More

So so food served in a press setting. I wasn't impressed at all. Had the Classic Burger and it is decent - but there are better burgers nearby. Companion had the 1/2 Chicken and pronounced it "tasty" and would order again worthy. Food seems expensive for the quality of what you get. Might give them another try, but I doubt... More

Sorry you weren't 100% satisfied with your meal at our restaurant. Should you return, I'd like to suggest you try our Tuna Tartare, Bacon Wrapped Scallops or Mini Pork Tostadas--all are packed with unique flavors and some of our most popular dishes. Our Reuben sandwich featuring our housemade Corned Beef is the best in Libertyville. Thanks for your feedback, we... More

Thought this would be more of a gastropub-bistro type of restaurant. It's a bar for older adults that also serves food. The menu isn't terribly interesting and it is pricey. I got a steak salad that was very good but my husband got the salmon and that is all it was. One piece of fish. All the sides, unless you... More
