A gem in downtown Skokie

We ordered a few different items to share. All of the items were tasty. It was very loud so hard to carry on a conversation. It is very small inside, so everyone was very close together.

The only downside on this great neighborhood restaurant is the size (tiny even with the outside back part). The dishes are very creative Latin cuisine which blends typical dishes in a new creative way! Do not think this is your typical Mexican restaurant in any way shape or form. The wine list is a little small and I wish they... More

No one will ever believe this but I swear on my life it's true. I arrived at the restaurant at 6:15 on Saturday night. We did not have reservations. The "host" said she couldn't take us until 9:00 pm. I asked if she could take my number if a cancellation or no show would open a table; she did. I... More

Good food, very nice staff, but way way too noisy. Eat outside if you can. The menu was refreshingly brief and included vegetarian dishes, all very well prepared.

I was surprised to learn that this restaurant became pretty much full at 7 PM on one Thursday. I was glad that I came early. I noticed that the age of customers spanned quite widely (young couples to grandparents). My wait staff was named Lizzette - one of the most attentive and professional worker I have ever been served by.... More

This restaurant looked to be very interesting from the reviews and we went on a nice Friday for lunch, hoping to sit on the patio that is talked about. The place was closed and we were there between 12:00 and 12:30 p.m. Considering that it supposedly is open on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., you may want to... More

This wonderful restaurant offers something for the adventurous eater as well as those who love the tried and true. We went for the more unusual dishes per our waiters recommendation and loved everything! The plates are designed to be shared although the pulpo I wanted to keep to myself. Cocktails are fun and delicious.

Libertad is so amazing. I have been several times and each time I am amazed at the food, presentation and service. If you like fu-fu drinks, they have a ton and they are all really delicious. The hummus and the bread that comes with it, is amazing. The scallops, steak, octopus, everything is so good. Make reservations well in advance.... More

This restaurant deserves six stars! The first thing to say is that this restaurant should be in Chicago, not Skokie, but I'm glad it's here and convenient for us suburbanites. The menu and drinks are well thought out, well prepared, and unique. Our group had five ladies, all over 50, and we loved everything we ate. We shared two salads,... More

Wonderful gem in Skokie---totally worth your time and visit! A tiny little restaurant with an open air cooking kitchen--Latin cuisine with a gourmet flair. Visit this Summer and enjoy the back patio while tasting delicious freshly made entrees. Brunch on Sunday is fantastic--but their dinner entrees are worth coming back for anytime. Wonderful service. Dedicated culinary crew. Incredible reviews and... More
