Due to the bad weather the 2016 Wine Fest was shut down, good thing there is one of the best hotel bars at SugarToad. Even though it was crowded we had excellent service and a wonderful choice of wines.

Dear ShellieB50 Thank you for the wonderful review! I am glad that you were able to take shelter out of the rain in the SugarToad restaurant. We were extremely busy that night and I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and that the service met your expectations. We hope to have you join us again... More

I ordered a simple breakfast and service was fast and efficient. Server was attentive but not hovering.

I know this place is in a hotel BUT DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU!!!!!! This is one of the best places I have ever been to eat.

Was introduced to this restaurant through Chef Geoff Rhyne. Have to admit, we were crushed when he left. Haven't dined here as much as we used to when he was still the chef. He always created perfect portions. I hope they still have the anchovy butter. May sound disgusting but it's delicious when paired with their warm brioche bread

The main restaurant at Hotel Arista. Breakfast comes with many tasty choices. Service is great and the atmosphere is nice.

While on business in Naperville, we decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant. The menu looked interesting, and we really didn't want to get back in our rental cars and explore the area. Unfortunately, they were short-handed that evening. The bartender was having to act as the waiter/server, and also as the food runner. So the delays in getting... More

I do not like the Sugar Toad for dinner. The food is weird and not normal for a business hotel. Too expensive. And the service in that I mean the time it takes to get your food is just out of bounds. I would not recommend this place for dinner. Which is bad because I love the hotel. Need a... More

Stopped for a late lunch between lunch and dinner. The all day dining menu didn't appeal to us so we had a drink and went to the CityGate Grille instead. The restaurant is gorgeous, clean, and quiet. We stayed at Hotel Arista for four nights and SugarToad always appeared to be providing relaxed meal service along with chic contemporary ambiance.
