Alfresco dining at its best

We return to the Carriage House each summer to experience one of the best settings for dining outdoors. A quite garden on one side with plenty of shade at the tables. Reservations a must due to limited seating. Fantastic food. Full bar is available. We started with a pizza appetizer. Later we... read more

My daughter's birthday present for me was a Groupon for dinner for me and my husband. We arrived, we gave the manager the Groupon printout, and we were left to wait for 20 min even though the restaurant was almost empty. Then we were seated at a very small table - it looked like a service table- and it was... More

We were looking for a place to celebrate our recent engagement and some friends suggested The Carriage House. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed a romantic evening in a country garden setting after eating a terrific meal. Our first course was a delicious sweet corn risotto followed by a Caesar salad and the most tender flavorful filet I've ever ate.... More

Great food very tasty but you will not be full very small portions and be prepared to pay downtown Chicago prices including drinks as well..

This restaurant is not closed, as the previous review suggests - I ate here their opening week. They are now open under new ownership - same name, same classy atmosphere, same fine dining experience.

This was an excellent restaurant. Fine dinning out in the country . The only complaint we ever had is they took way too long to get the different courses. The food was always good but slow service is not good. Unfortunately they have closed. There may be a new restaurant coming in to the same location per the newspaper.

My wife and I have dined both inside and out and the food has always been delicious. Our favorite is the warm weather patio dining experience. Great surroundings with a nice selection of entrées!

Not only does the interior need updating, but the food has remained the same for years. Although it is ok, there is nothing new and/or innovative to make me want to return.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at the Carriage House just before the New Year. I usually go by myself, which can be awkward and sometimes embarrassing but not at the Carriage House. The beauty of the Carriage House is its location. You are out in the country, it is quiet, removed from the daily grind. Yes, it is... More
