Suburban Surprise

Very enjoyable dining experience. Hard to believe it's in Skokie. Need a reservation as its a small venue. Always crowded, gives it an upscale city like vibe. Small plates shareable and really good. Cocktails are creative.

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening, since we were in the neighborhood, and found it on the map, with good reviews. The food was great, and so were the drinks. The server was quick and polite. We had a table on a small cozy patio, it felt almost home-like. The dinner, however, was quite expensive, more than we... More

I went here a few days ago for dinner for the first time and it was really outstanding. A complementary amuse bouche of a light creamy corn and serrano pepper soup was a nice introduction. We tried the aguacate salad, chipotle hummus, octopus, scallops, and 2 asadas for a total of 3 adults. The one salad was plenty for the... More

....because then everyone will be there and we will never get a reservation! Libertad is wonderful-small plates, so three are good for a couple. Try the perfectly seared scallops over black rice in a beurre blanc sauce infused with yuzu and habanero, the octopus with fried chick peas, the perfect carne asada, tender duck and great cocktails. Service is very... More

This is a small and very interesting place in Skokie, Il that not so many people know about. We've been there a few times with our friends and enjoyed ourselves.

No offense, Skokie, but this place will instantly transport you to a hip spot worthy of any big-city location. The food is wonderful, smaller portions of very inventive cuisine. We always get the hummus and the stuffed pepper to start and go crazy from there. We've never been disappointed. The cocktails are also several cuts above the usual. Don't miss... More

Very unique "gourmet" style tapas restaurant. Each dish more delicious than the previous one tried. Not inexpensive, but absolutely worth the price. The goat cheese stuffed pepper, the Skate fish, the shrimp, the pork.....all delicious. The chef came to our table and we were able to thank him personally for creating such an awesome dining experience! The service was great... More

Wanting to meet my sister somewhere between her Loop condo and my suburban house, we agreed to meet at Libertad. What a wonderfully pleasant find! The service was excellent, from the owner and hostess who greeted us when we arrived, to our delightful server, to the busboys. Everyone was SO friendly and pleasant. And the food was excellent! My sister... More

This place is excellent. Yes, it's expensive. It's a Bib Gourmand rated restaurant. It's sophisticated. The cocktails are $10, yes, but they are hand crafted cocktails! It's not a crappy whiskey and coke. They are as thoughtfully prepared as the food... AND AMAZING! Plus, the level of attention you get from the bartenders is top notch. They always remember who...

Vibrant atmosphere, delicious food, family friendly. Interesting wine and cocktail list. My husband and I had a great meal here with our 10-year-old son. We had watercress salad, fried poblano stuffed with goat cheese, a Latin take on a crab cake, a pork chop with greens and sweet potato, octopus and chocolate cake to finish. All the dishes were good.
