The food and service were excellent. The wine was good, but overpriced. The back room was much preferable as its quieter and allowed conversation. The staff was VERY good in not rushing us to turn over the table.

We love Mecenat Bistro! This small, intimate, casual, friendly restaurant is just what the near west suburbs needed. Kelly and her staff are very warm and welcoming. We have eaten here 15+ times and never had a bad meal. The waitstaff are knowledgeable, the wine list is pretty good, and the food never disapppoints. Portions are good-sized and come with... More

We have been here multiple times since it is so close to where we live. We found it by accident and keep coming back during the week. Nicely appointed and a very casual and inviting way. Conversation friendly. We've tried many things and the food is high end comfort style. With a huge range from Creole crab cakes to Thai... More

Mecenat has been a consistently strong restaurant. The meals have been well prepared, well presented, and well seasoned. Whether sole with artichoke/capers/potatoes/spinach, grilled asparagus with sugar snap pea risotto, crabcakes, grilled yellowfin tuna, a filet, or one of the many delicious desserts, each visit to this restaurant has been a 'we'll-come-back-here' experience. Definitely recommend.

We were in Western Springs for a quick business trip and chose Mecenet for lunch. We had great blackened sole sandwiches and salad. This will be our go to restaurant for our next time in town!

They have a Tuesday night $5 burgers that are really good. Of course, you could order something other than a burger, but why?

I have visited Mecenat many times but this is my first review. I have often gone just for drinks and maybe an app or two. great wine list, very good apps. I have had one sit down dinner and have done a few carry outs. Always enjoyed the food. So it was an obvious choice for a 40th birthday party... More

Have eaten here twice in about a week's time. I know that early reviews had a lot of trouble with the service but we have not. I will say that the service staff may be a bit small but that seems to be being worked on. But the positive is that the food is imaginative and very good. I also... More

The food here is delicious. I was in a group of 4 and we ordered appetizers, main courses, and dessert. For appetizers we ordered the baked Brie with apricots, truffle fries, and chicken and chorizo quesadilla. All of the appetizers were to die for. For dinner we ordered the duck, the pork chop, the beef sliders, and the butterfish. Everything... More
