“Busy, Crowded, Nice Menu and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We came at the tail of the dinner rush, and the restaurant and staff looked a little exhausted from the evening. Our table was short on personal space. There were tables being disassembled around us as the emptied out. I had the feeling the place must be optimized for quick turnover and a good profit margin, but at the expense of a peaceful dining experience. The food, though, was very good, except for the caesar salad which was swimming in too much of the otherwise good dressing.

“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We have eaten at this restaurant many times for both lunch and dinner and on date nights, with other couples and with our 4 kids, and I have also been to many birthday lunches with other women. The food is consistently good and in particular, the tomato soup is excellent. It can get very busy, so make a reservation. The tables are tight together and it can be noisy, so not the place to take your hard of hearing grandmother, but it also has a lively atmosphere, great service and excellent food choices. You can also eat at the tables in the bar area and there are some nice booths in that area if you are having a ladies lunch. Try their drink specialties - some are fantastic!

“Good for lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

I took a client to this restaurant, which is attached to the Northbrook Court mall. It is a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant and was very good for lunch. Lots of options, good service, prices were as expected.

“Beyond lame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012 via mobile

This place is absolutely awful. Slow service, mediocre food in uninspiring decor. Save your money and try something like nearby Francesco's Hole in the Wall, Next Door Bistro or Charlie Beinlich's.
