This is a awesome place to eat if you know what to order. Next time you want to go to Olive Garden STOP! Go to Gaston. Order any pasta dish and go home full, happy and with enough left overs for the next days lunch. The BYO make this even better. Don't order a chicken sandwich. Get any of these:... More

Get to Café Gaston. Location? Orland Park Strip mall. Ambience? Converted storefront chic- order at the counter, pick a table, food brought to you! Food? I challenge you to find anything better at this price point! Have tasted nearly everything- still think bow-tie pasta chicken and salads are the best! Portion size fantastic! BYOB encouraged. Limited outdoor seating overlooking the... More

Start off by saying this place is great. I am sad that I have never known about this place before, but am happy I found it on Chicago's Best. It is a small cafe in a strip mall and the food was awesome. You order at the counter, no waitress or waiter, and they bring the food out to you.... More

Ok if you drive by you might miss the place as it is in a local strip center on a secondary street, but it is worth finding. The food is French Bistro style and it is absolutely fantastic. Their Shrimp New Orleans is my favorite. With plenty of shrimp over a penne type pasta that is perfectly cooked, and is... More

Phenomenal food: something for everyone. Warm and homemade. Great pasta and giant bowls of yummy soup. My girlfriends and I meet here 1-2 times per month and we stay late and they never kick us out. The best part aside from the food is the great service. They make us feel like we our family stopping by for dinner.

I was a little hesitant about going to this cafe because I don't really love French food, and then when I waslked in and saw that you just go up to a counter to order, I wasn't sure how much I'd like it. Well, the staff was extremely friendly, and it seemed like they really wanted their customers to be... More

I went there with my family and everyone absolutely loved the food. I ordered the chicken florentine pasta which was prepared with all fresh ingredients from the chef. It was the best pasta I have had and if your looking for great authentic french food for a good value than this is the place to try. The food is amazing... More

My daughter and I stopped for lunch. We had a grilled chicken and tex mex sandwich that were excellent. The home made pasta salad is something we wanted more of it was so good. Nice people, too.

Great food, made fresh, but not a traditional restaurant. You order at the counter & they bring out the food, self serve soft drinks too. The same recipes from when Chef Gaston was there many years ago but now different chefs prepare the food. Good value but may be difficult for some to find on Humphry Drive.
