Our waiter was professional but aloof, the room was echoing and dim and since almost empty on a Thursday night, on the depressing side of quiet. The prices were high but the food not worth the money; the menu promised creativity while the food was run-of-the-mill. For guests staying at the hotel, the frozen meals behind reception are just as... More

I am staying in the Hilton, and I have went to the bar 3 nights because convenience. The service is horrendous, their organization is horrid, and their shear lack of knowledge of a bar is quite apparent. Not a great experience, no plans on going back.

But you probably won't look forward to it. I got a ribeye (medium rare) and baked potato. It would have been an OKAY steak if I'd been at Golden Corral. For $42 (the special says 19.99 but that's for the chicken) it was not good at all. Service was okay - couldn't manage to get a beer list to save... More

I took my wife there for a romantic dinner as we first visited Allgauers when we were newlyweds. It was not the same fine dinning we remembered. There were eight people seated in the dinning room; including a family of six. My steak was not the prime rare beef it should have been. Choice maybe and the chef must have... More

This restaurant, while fine dining prices, has amazing food and interesting selections. We were there on an extremely quiet Tuesday evening. We ordered Scallops and Salmon along with some great sides. Everyone was friendly. We had food left over and ate it for breakfast. Actually got breakfast there the next morning. Same great food and friendly service. If you are... More

Once again dining alone while on business the evening before heading home I find myself with no other option but to have dinner at Allgauer's in the Hilton Northbrook hotel. It is not a bad option, I just would have rather dined away from the hotel. The restaurant had hardly anyone in there so the service for my table was... More

Great place to eat. Offers from higher end entrees to sandwiches, salads, and other 'pub food'. The waitstaff is wonderful and always making certain that you're well taken care of! Thank you Angel!

We dined one morning at Allgauers for breakfast during our stay at the Hilton Northbrook. The rather large restaurant was full of people and there appeared to be only one man serving every table. When we were seated, he came to our table to inform us that we could either eat from the buffet or there was a 30-40 minute... More
