My kids took me out for Father's Day. We had a gift card, and that always helps struggling students. We arrived at about 2:15 and we were told a half hour wait, but it was more like 15 minutes. While we waited we had a look at the pastry case and admired all the fabulous looking desserts. We also went... More

Decided to have my daughter's post law school graduation lunch here. Have had wonderful food & service at all other locations in Metro Chicago but our experience here was awful. Food was not tasty and at the wrong temp. In our party of 8 only 2 were satisfied. Called the Mgr later in the week and received apologies but will... More

It's not a cheap outing but it is usually crowded with a 10 to 15 minute wait, sometimes more so. The chicken soup is really good otherwise it has a diverse menu that fits just about everyone's tastes,

Located in oldorchard. Very friendly wait staff,with a very nice atmosphere. The restaurant is located up a very high stairway in side, but there is also an elevator to gain excess to the restaurant. There is a counter with all different types of cheese cakes.

The best thing they have to offer - other than cheesecake - is their salads. But beware... prices are a bit high.

Don't forget your reading glasses or your appetite. Huge menu with lots of choices, this chain offers something for everyone. The portions are nice sized and you might even end up not finishing your selection. The food doesn't disappoint either. Fresh, well prepared, nicely presented, with a good wait staff that doesn't leave you waiting for more water or for... More

My husband and I came here the day before Valentine's to beat the love rush. We were seated quickly and the service was great. I ordered the Oriental Chicken Salad and my husband got a burger. Overall, it was a good experience.

Once you get in it is great but the wait can be hard on a hungry person. The portions used to be huge but not any more. The cheese cake is the best.

I've eaten here a few times in the past and always found it reasonably good. This last time was no exception. The menu has is diverse and there is even an alternative health-conscious menu offering, well, health-conscious alternatives. Our waitress was helpful. Prices seemed to be on par with other restaurants in the area.
