Excellent food

I've been to Praga many times and each time the food is excellent. The menu has a wide selection including some European style specialties in addition to typical American fare. The filet with roasted purple potatoes, wilted spinach and a mushroom sauce is outstanding. The white chocolate... read more

First visit to Praga and I was delightfully surprised. The menu is quite varied and our server helped us pick out the best dishes for the day. Every one of our 6 enjoyed their meal. I found the prices to be very reasonable for the high quality. The wine list is also extensive and very reasonably priced. I will definitely... More

Nice place when sitting outside. Two problems, the menu does not very much, in fact it's almost always the same, and even though we go there quit frequently the owner is rather unfriendly. But we keep going back so it can't be that bad.

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. Our server presented our little dog with a bowl of... 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
