I have been here on a couple of occasions before and had been pretty pleased. But this time, not so much. First off, it was 84 degrees in the dining room. That's just way too hot to be comfortable and this was the first day that it was a little cooler outside. Second, I had a turkey sandwich which was... More

Awful. We we not told that no pork is sold so the bacon was something else and not tasty. This was originally a French place now absolutely not

I live in town and I frequent this place for their breakfast or lunch. Their specialty drinks are great and their soups are very tasty. My favorite soup is the French onion and my favorite breakfast dish is the omelette. Gaston is not a chain and the owners are very nice, always willing to make accommodations when needed. Must check... More

This is a café (has outdoor seating), not large but roomy enough. You place your order at counter and they bring food out to you. Quite a selection of breakfast items and lunch items. They have a "side of the day" - today was creamy pasta salad w/peas, corn, etc. - very good. Have specials each day as well as... More

Cafe Gaston may not have much of an atmosphere but don't let that fool you. There food is great for breakfast, lunch or even supper. The food with its French theme is all homemade. Haven't had anything I didn't like.

Gaston used to be an affordable, non chain restaurant, an exciting alternative to mid day Orland Park restaurants. I hadn't eaten there for a couple years as our family moved out of town. We were excited to go back when we returned to town. It was terrible. The food was not okay. It was bad. The crab cakes were inedible.... More

Visited on Tuesday 8/25/15. Usually order at counter and get food quickly. Was told they changed and to sit at any table and a waitress would take our order. Sat down and waited for 10 mins and no waitress even acknowledged my wife and I. Only 2 customers were in the restaurant so it was not busy. Finally left. Was... More

I went here in 2010. It was great. Five minutes ago, I left after going there for dinner with my wife and two small kids. I didn't like the food at all. Puff pastry appetizer and the "combo" entre, which was sliced chicken pieces, palenta, and a crab cake. Crab cake had no crab taste, no lemon taste, and quite... More

Usually while shopping around town in Orland Park, we are apt to stop for a quick bite at any of the fast foods, but the other day, we passed by Cafe Gaston, and thought we would stop to enjoy a little nicer lunch that day, and we were not in any hurry. This restaurant has been here for a long... More
