Great food, great presentation and staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Very slow paced so plan on spending 2 hours there. Petite portions so you won't over eat.

Consistent in taste and service. Love the Trio of Soups; foie gras (salad or entree) paired with a delicious port; assortment combo (I swear they have chix in the back that specifically lay the parmesan devilled egg) and yummy desserts. Excellent wine selection. Laid back but elegant atmosphere(check out the ceramics on display upon entering). Staff quite attentive and helpful... More

My wife and I hadn't been here in a couple of years and, frankly, we were afraid they may have lost interest. It takes a lot of energy to stay among the top restaurants in one of the best dining cities in the country. There were four of us. We all had a different entree, but we shared. There wasn't... More

Let me preface this review by saying, we love to eat. We love to eat out. We love to eat at fine dining establishments, so are fairly experienced in eating at higher end restaurants. My in-laws gave us a gift certificate to Tallgrass (not knowing that we didn't love our first experience there). We decided to give it another try... More

Have known about this place for many years live 15 minutes away but never tried till now which was my wife's birthday. A truly wonderful experience from the service to the wine to each course. We both did 3 courses and it was perfect. I had the rack of lamb and the wife had the pork tenderloin both cooked to... More

Tallgrass has been heralded as the best, upscale restaurant in the suburbs. They definitely had high end food relative to other suburban restaurants, but it didn't always compare to the places in the city for the same price point. The atmosphere seemed a little stuffy and the clientele was significantly older than what you would see at the best city... More

Having found this hidden wonder a few years ago I must say we are never dissapointed in the food, ambiance or the staff. As a suburbanite, finding a restaurant like this in the area is a blessing. The seasonal choices are always wonderful as are the staples on the menu, I cannot sing their praises highly enough. You will not... More

I enjoyed my meal and dining experience at the Tallgrass. I had been wanting to visit the city of Lockport for a little while and this was my first time in the city. The restaurant had been picked by some friends. We had the earlier seating of the two seatings they offer each night. We arrived about 10 minutes early... More

You would have a hard time finding a better restaurant in Chicago. Unique meals and spectacular desserts. In my opinion, close the the dining experience at the French Laundry
