Gave it another go….

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... read 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

My husband, daughter and I spent a pleasant evening enjoying delicious food in the quiet and pleasant atmosphere at Tallgrass. We selected the 4-course dinner and savored each dish as it was brought out. We all tried a variety of choices and were always pleased. We look forward to returning to this special gem.

Tallgrass is without a doubt one of the finest restaurants I have ever been to.If you fancy yourself a foodie you owe it to yourself to go before it's gone. One of the few restaurants I can compare it to is Victoria and Albert's at the Grand Floridian in Disney World. One of the unique things I enjoy is you... More

I'll start on the positive...my husband and I were able to try new foods and flavors that we would not normally have had (capon, lobster lasagna, French wine, etc,.). It is for that reason that we chose this restaurant. We had the option of choosing a 3, 4, 5, or 7 course dinner and we chose 5 (a friend told... More
