Great dinner, at a hotel Restuarant.

This particular space has been occupied by several different eateries of different types, but this one is a real winner. Our server was terrific and also had a great sense of humor. The dining areas are nicely designed and appointed...warm and upscale. The food is basically Italian, but include... read more

This restaurant is attached to the Westin hotel in Wheeling, Illinois. The atmosphere is excellent, the food choices varied, and the service was great. Initially, my meal was a little cool, but they were fine having it sent back to be redone.

Let's start with we did have an open table reservation and they sat us early. From there it was downhill. So I asked the waitress what this chicken dish was (sorry I can't remember but it began with a "G") The waitress told us "it is chicken with sweet peppers". I replied "just peppers" she answered "and some olive oil"... More

We were part of a large group attending a family gathering in a private dining room. The food was served family style and had been preselected by the hosts. My husband and I both have food allergies and the servers were very good about modifying our meals to accommodate us. Often when we ask for a special meal that does... More

Saranellos is one of the Lettuce Entertain You restaurants which means a consistency in offering good service and food. I was there with my wife for dinner on a Friday evening and we chose the house specialties: eggplant and meat lasagna. The portions were ample and while they were all right there nothing that made them distinctive from any other... More

This restaurant could stand alone without the anchor of a hotel. The food is wonderful, offering a wide variety of choices. Great service and wine offerings. Beautiful, warm environment and bustling with patrons. Friendly bar. The eggplant parmigiana was the best I ever ate. The bread and olive oil were hugely tempting, and worth abandoning the current craze for avoiding... More

Always a GREAT meal. There is nothing on the menu that isnt GREAT. From Chicken Parm to Lasagna to a healthier option of fresh fish. Dont forget the Banana Tiramasu

best food,never a bad meal. Service can be erratic and the first drink takes a long time to come.But the food is always hot and tasty. I loved the braised rib ravioli baked the best. my husband loves all their chicken dishes. Nice atmosphere but the tables are a little to close together.

Pulled in the parking lot of the Westin Hotel where the restaurant is located. Used the valet service for the parking. Highly recommend using them as parking is not so easy. Friendly staff outside. Any Lettuce Entertain U restaurant is worth the visit. They all have been nothing short of dependable with superb food. The restaurant inside is very large... More
