It had been a year since we were at Jerry's in Winnetka. We should have waited much longer. This was one of the most disappointing experiences that we have had dining out. First, they require a credit card to hold a reservation. They don't trust their customers, and we should not have trusted them. It was Saturday night and there... More

Jerry's has always been one of our favorite restaurants. But ever since Ed left, the food and the service is lackluster. Time between courses is absurd, especially given that the nights we've been there, the restaurant is less than half full. Wine list isn't nearly as good as it used to be; many wines are virtual duplicates. Meager pours aggravate... More

The cuisine at Jerry's is really tops; flavorful, unique, and abundant portions. They also run a cooking school, and the night we were there it was in full force. The diners were all squeezed into the small front room (the cooking school enjoys the better view on Chestnut Court.) OK, but the waiter and busboys were very distracted - running... More

We needed to be in Winnetka for an appointment and decided to look for lunch there first. Jerry's was near our appointment so we stopped in and were lucky to find two seats at their small bar. We were well served there since the waiter behind the bar spent a good deal of his time there. Our food was wonderful:... More

Food was fantastic! Host was not at all friendly (bring back Ed)! Busboys repeatedly passed by tables containing dirty dishes (empty-handed) on their way back to the kitchen. Some serious staff training is needed. No one seemed to be in charge. The last few times we have been here the servers all seem like they were new. Wondering what the... More

I like Jerry's. I've recommended it to many friends. We've eaten there several times. I took my family there for Valentine's dinner. Our waitress was on us like oxygen right up until the time our first course was delivered. Then poof! she was gone. The guy who poured the water was there every five minutes, or less, but our waitress... More

I love going to Jerry's/Corner Cooks. The team is very nice, the service is great - and the food is just so good that people keep flocking in. It is always crowded, so reservations are recommended. They are also very accommodating with group reservations. The place is quite cozy but nevertheless, very charming. They also have outside seating. I highly... More

We have been to Jerry's a number of times over the last couple years. The atmosphere is upscale casual. The wait staff is attentive but not obtrusive. The food is always good. It isn't overly fancy or unusual in the way a foodie might crave, but always done well. The prices for the North Shore of Chicago are pretty decent.... More

It was Valentine's night for this quaint restaurant in Winnetka. It's not really built for a large crowd to descend on it at about the same time. Our waiter was excellent. Steered us through the menu and drinks as exactly as you would like, ie. not so good/very good/great drink for college sorority sisters/stuff like that. Our appetizers - shrimp... More

We've been to Jerry's for dinner several times and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently delicious, interesting and well-prepared, the service is always excellent, and the experience always positive. This time we enjoyed their fried chicken and the short ribs - both excellent. It is so easy to get to and to park, the staff is friendly, the... More
