Breakfast and dinner were very disappointing. The atmosphere is great, but the service personnel and the food lack the earmarks of a fine restaurant. The restaurant is co-located with the Hilton, and I don't know their relationship, but I expected more of the Hilton. This is not a "Chicago Class" restaurant.

We've been going to the Friday night seafood buffet here on and off for years and the most recent offering was not up to snuff. Sure, it's good value for $40 with all you can eat Alaskan crab legs, oysters (raw and Rockefeller) salads of all kinds - from traditional greens to all kinds of shrimp and seafood offerings, fresh...

I did not like that a clean table during the breakfast hour was hard to find. The tables were not being reset after previous guests left. Dinner was good, but expensive

This was a very nice location for a luncheon for about 65 people following a family celebration. I enjoyed the traditional service by the waiters. A wine was recommended and the waiter went out of his way to bring me a small glass to sample following up with a glass when he checked back with me to see if I... More

The quality of their food is excellent, and the staff just runs for you. Just b/c they ran out of eggs one time for someone--means absolutely Nothing!! Please! The selection on their holiday menu, is wonderful,and if you just dine during the week, their entrees' are delicious! ie: I'm not crazy about turkey, BUT at Allgauers--it is not to be... More

Only ate at this establishment for breakfast and the Best option for breakfast is the buffet. Good mix of quality hot and cold items. Hotel staff was attentive to the guests, but a little slow in making sure that all food items were in place and in ample amounts (i.e. one more ran out of Eggs Benedict and not replenished... More

if you don't want to go out after arriving at the Hilton, Allgauers is fine. The service was not great, but it is attractive, with lots of windows, and is quiet, on a couple of levels.

If you have a car skip the buffet or walk somewhere else. Service is slow and the hostess and manager are clueless even when issues are brought to their attention. The buffet during the week was fabulous - smoked salmon , pastries, stuffed french toast and eggs Benedict . On the weekend they pare down to scrambled eggs, french toast,... More

The nearly empty dining room should have been our cue. While the 6-ounce filet was well-prepared, the accompanying baked potato was very dry and the "chef's selection of vegetables" (brown broccoli, crispy carrots, mushed squash and string beans) was bathed in oil. Not with the $30 price tag.

Allgauer’s on the Riverfront, Northbrook, IL Not a disaster, but close. The good: A handsome dining room with a beautiful view of the Des Plaines River through the window. The bad: As the twilight descended, the outdoor lights went on, only to darken a few minutes later. The air conditioning was inadequate, even though the outdoor temperature was only 72°.... More
