This is one of my favorite places on the North Shore. It's a great space, with a nice simple menu with plenty of margarita options.

I come from Puerto Rico and visit Wilmette several times a year, so I was thrilled to find a Latin-themed restaurant in the neighborhood that is so excellent. Besides great food and seating on the huge wraparound terrace, the service is AWESOME. The staff is so incredibly attentive and friendly, too. Charles, John, Brian, Kyle, David & Nicki are fantastic... More

Depot Nuevo remains our favorite place to eat in Wilmette, even after several other good restaurants have opened recently within walking distance. The food is fresh and flavorful, the service is friendly and knowledgable, and the margaritas are fantastic. In the summer it's very nice to sit outside on the open or screened in porch, or sip a margarita on... More

Depot Nuevo is time-tested and shows Wilmette what's possible when a restaurant is run by experienced restauranteurs. Chips/salsa/water as soon as you sit down? Check. No quibbles about replacing drinks not to your liking? Check. Specials that truly change daily? Check. And all in a historic charming location. Food is really good. You can get something no matter your price... More

Probably out of 10 different south American restaurant from downtown Chicago to up north to Lake Forest, this is my favorite Central/South American dish. Absolutely perfect seasoning every single time for the past 5 years since I've start to come here. There variety of Magrietas are just so mouth watering not just summer, all year around.

This is a go to place for us. Not everyday, because with a margarita or two it can get a little pricey. But the food quality is excellent and the cuisine innovative. Try it if you're in our little town.

We made a reservation for an early dinner, I had the shrimp and spinach quesadilla but I also tasted the tacos and the fajitas. Every thing just perfect, not too spicy, just fine. The food was served in a reasonable time. What was really perfect was this man Pedro, that was always refilling water looking for any thing we needed.... More

Our return visit left us wanting - wanting to come back again. Nice, warm atmosphere with attentive staff who new how to not be pesty. Great pomegranate margarita to set the stage for a nice dinner. Paella and fajitas did us in - no room for dessert.
