For our first visit to Retro Bistro, we made last-minute reservations for Bastille Day. The food and service were wonderful. We shared a tasty cheesy ravioli as an appetizer and our entrees: rolled Mediterranean chicken and the duck were very good, but filling. We really liked this place so we took my parents there the following Saturday evening. This time,... More

My wife and I have dined at Retro Bistro more than a half dozen times, and consistently, our meals have been wonderful. The menu offers a wide variety of options, the wine choices are solid, the wait-staff is friendly and enthusiastic, and the fixed price menu is very reasonable. Chef Christopher Barth is always on hand to greet us, which... More

Fixed price dinner at $45 gives you a 3 course menu with multiple choices of very good food Generous portions usually a turn off but this place is the exception At $45 definitely a best buy

Nothing better than an 80th Birthday party at the honorees favorite restaurant. 18 of us had a wonderful experience from tasty appetizers, fine drinks and a choice of three great entrees. Our server Kara did a wonderful job with all the family.. Great neighborhood spot in a non discript strip mall.

We decided to meet friends at this restaurant for a leisurely dinner since we hadn't seen each other in over a year. The staff was very attentive but at no time did we feel rushed. The tables filled but no one was waiting so we enjoyed a 2 1/2 hour dinner on a Saturday evening. The food was delicious with... More

We had a groupon so we gave it a try. The waiter was so attentive and he seemed to be knowledgeable about the menu. The bread with pate and butter was delicious. Both meals were extremely tasty. desert was great. Prix Fix was also a great deal.

My family lives in Mt Prospect but we don't go to Retro Bistro much for dinner - maybe sometimes for a glass of wine and an appetizer. After our meal on Mother's Day though, we will definitely make a point to return. We had reservations at 4:30pm this past Sunday. There was a prix fixe menu that you could order... More

I ate there awoke ago as I had heard many good things about this place. Sorry, but the wait staff was unfriendly, the food was over priced, the portions were minimal with nothing included, and in my opinion, was just mediocre.
