We love this charming restaurant situated in the heart of downtown Lombard. The dog friendly patio is surrounded by flower boxes and umbrella tables many lattice metal and some plastic. All are set with cloth napkins and woven placemats. Inside is more formal but still has a casual welcoming feel... read more

We now live in NC and decided we wanted to eat at Praga while in Chicago. We had been there several times over the years and had always enjoyed our meals. Chef's menu and kitchen execution have always been outstanding. Not only are they still on top of their game but we found a considerably expanded menu thanks to a... More

I was ringing out 2014 after many months of health issues, with the last treatment scheduled on New Year's Eve. I didn't anticipate feeling well enough to go out so failed to make reservations in advance. At the last minute, I thought a good dinner was exactly what I needed to end the year. I got lucky when I called... More

5th trip to Praga and still not a bad or even less than perfect experience! This time I tried the Escargot. I am by no means a snail lover but I had to find something wrong with this restaurant, wrong on my part. They were utterly amazing!!! I had the veal Marsala and it was the best I've had. Well...

The entrees are always special, and the wine selections are extensive. They have half price wine nights, and outdoor seating in the summer. We have been to Praga's many times and have always come away very pleased with the meals and experience.

We with my family. We ordered the calamari, it was over cooked. It was like chewing on rubber bands. I ordered the short ribs. Should have been called short rib. For $15 I got 1 rib, about 4 Brussel sprouts and a half cup of parsnip puree. The bone from the rib was bigger than my piece of meat. I... More

Yes, the food is good but they have added too many tables to a small area. We dined, with another couple, last night and it was extremely difficult to maintain a normal conversation. They did not have enough menus for the four of us. You could hear the conversation from the next table. Not a relaxing experience. We will definitely... More

Pavel and his wife are excellent chefs and hosts. We have eaten dinner there many times and have reserved the entire restaurant for a family celebration. They are attentive to every detail and treat their customers as valued guests. every dish is delicious!

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating dinner at this well run and tasty restaurant. They have a very good variety of entrees to choose from, and the service was as great as the food. Not fancy, but 5 star food and service. You will spend a bit, but worth every penny.
