I have eaten here so many times. Ordinarily it's 3 1/2-4 stars. Got seated under a vent blowing cold air& ceiling tiles fell. Had to be reseated as we were freezing. Kind ruined the food experience. Lots of commotion around the falling tiles due to condensation.

My wife and I went with another couple. Everyone ordered seafood, from scallops to sea bass. All were cooked perfectly. The sauces and coatings were uniformly excellent. The side dishes were pretty ordinary, however. Desserts were mostly pies (boring), but the Mounds (vanilla ice cream, coconut and chocolate) was quite good.

Best Hamburger ever! Large, juicy, couldn't put it down. Sushi also very good. Staff very nice, and attentive.

Went for lunch and got the chicken and wasn't too impressed. My friend ordered the trout and it was delicious. The roasted beet salad was great also. The cheese puffs that replace the bread are wonderful and they even give out the recipe.

This place screamed mediocre even from the wine special which turned out to be overly complicated. I had the lobster risotto and it was a pool of butter. I've even risotto for 30 years and never seen that before. Their famed cheese rolls were odd to the point of trying to figure out what they really were--except you knew they... More

I'm often in this area of the Chicago burbs for business and love to eat at the Reel. I was just there last week and it did not disappoint. It just so happens that on Monday nights their daily special is a seafood Cioppino and it was out of this world. I've had lots of Cioppinos and this was one... More

Our family found the food here to be very good. We had a 6:30 PM reservation for a party of 9 and were seated promptly. The tables in the restaurant are pretty close together as space is limited in the dining room and you find yourselves sitting very close to other restaurant patrons. The table adjacent to us struck up... More

Delicious value - great for business lunch and possibly late night dining with a significant other. The positioning of this restaurant is horrible for parking - be sure to take advantage of the valet and tip well (those guys really work for their money in this location). Tip 1: Get the sushi - it is fresh and delicious Tip 2:... More

Great bar scene. Excellent food and cocktails. Great service. You wouldn't even know you were in a mall.

I ordered the Wild Alaskan Salmon grilled medium rare. It was served too hot to touch in the center and drying out. The filet piece was fresh but over-portion-controlled (thin and too small). The green beans were basically raw even though requested "well done". The risotto was swimming in a half-ladle of added butter. It seems that the kitchen completely... More
