Party of eight...they put us in the back room and it seemed they forgot about us. Took 45 minutes and four trips back and forth by the server to the bar for the drink order to arrive at our table. NOT an exaggeration. The servers seemed to disappear for long periods of time and it, therefore, took us a long... More

Stumbled into this place while on a labor day trip to Chicago on our way back from the city to the inlaw's places in the suburbs. Came by at 5 pm on a Sunday. Staff were very accommodating and welcoming to us. We ordered a range of dishes including some of the small plates. Absolutely fantastic was the short ribs.... More

Nice upscale, modern decor with outdoor seating. Service was good. I had the sirloin burger which comes dressed with average tasting BBQ sauce and a handful of french fried onion pieces. It also comes with three bacon-potato balls which consisted of a deep fried ball of mashed potato with bacon bits. I felt the burger was pretty good but the... More

Trendy and fun! Small plates and a serve yourself wine bar! Good food in a cool atmosphere! Choices are very interesting, and everything is prepared well!

This place has lots of energy for a neighborhood eatery. Food is creatively made and very appealing, the quality was great!

I just hosted a rehearsal dinner here and had an overall very pleasant experience. Planning a large dinner event on top of a wedding can be stressful, and the staff at Trifecta Grill made it easy for me with their exceptionally friendly service. They always returned phone calls promptly, and I could tell that they were eager to help make... More

If you like pretentious eating locations you may want to try this one. Appeals to the NYC crowd ( or NYC visiting crowd) which is not all bad, just not necessarily what you would expect to find in a Chicago suburb.

This was the third time at this restaurant and we will never go back. We've had good experiences previously but this place has gone downhill. We were seated in an extra room at a high boy table with cheap, backless bar-type chairs. Our waiter was virtually non-existent. He never took our drink order, came by to take our food order... More

Brought our 3 year old here, staff was welcoming, atmosphere filled with area moms out for girls night, couples and some families. Very good food. Excellent staff, our waiter actually told us when we thought we had enough food for sharing. I groused a bit because I was very hungry, but he was exactly right (and saved us about $18).... More

I'm not sure why but it was nicer when it was in Winnetka. Food is just okay, nothing really homemade. I had spaghetti one night (seemed harmless enough) and when it came the meatballs looked to dense to be homemade -- I asked if they were made there and got two different answers at the same time. Nobody knows. Pizza... More
