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.

We've been patronizing Depot Nuevo for four years as locals and eat here 2-3 times per month. We have ALWAYS had top notch food with freshly prepared ingredients and unique and exciting flavors. Staff is consistently kind and attentive and knowledgeable about menu and drink options. DN was also rated one of the Top 25 Tequila bars in the US... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Wilmette because of its friendly staff and casual atmosphere. We always order off the appetizer list to make it more of a tapas evening and we love the Escalade margaritas, especially if Charlie is there to make them. I cannot say how authentic the cuisine is, but it is consistently good. It can get... More

We have three teenage boys and we all enjoy eating here - there's something for everyone (even for the picky one who just wants meat and cheese on a tortilla.) The chips are great. The food is consistently good. The service is always friendly. On week nights it's much less crowded and there is rarely a wait. The outdoor porch... More

On one of the nicest evenings of the year, we hoped to get an outside table - so we were willing to wait 30 minutes for a table.... and then another 15 minutes and another 15..... until we finally were seated. It took another 10 minutes before someone finally asked us if we wanted a drink - we would have... More

I've been to Depot Nuevo a handful of times over the past two years and I think they finally got the memo to improve their food/menu, because it's much better today than it was last year - possibly new chef? The restaurant is super cute inside and out with a great wrap around deck for outside seating. The tacos are... More
