I VERY rarely give negative reviews, but I'm making an exception tonight. We decided to stop by Simon's Restaurant in Villa Park to grab some dinner. We've eaten there many times before and the service and food have always been very good. Until tonight apparently....We arrive about 7:15 - 7:20 and were seated quickly. The waitress took our drink order and left (even though we we ready to order). Afterseveral minutes, she returned (without our drinks) to take our order. I went to order the fried chicken (Which is one of my favorites). I was told I couldn't have it because the kitchen was closing at 7:45 and it would take too long to make. (There was NOTHING in the menu that stated that it wasn't available after X time.). I was upset, but ordered something else. Ultimately the food showed up, but we had to remind the server that we still didn't have our drinks. She finally brought our drinks and we finished our meal. I went to the manager to complain about everything and the 20 - something ex-bus boy, now manager said he would talk to the server. I said fine, but what about the rest of our evening? He could not possibly have cared any less, other than to offer more lame excuses. And then he made us pay the whole check without as much as even comping our drinks. He said the owner wouldn't let him take anything off the bill. Needless to say, we won't be returning to Simon's. I urge all my friends to do the same and spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere. Because apparently, Simon sez "F You!"More

I was confused after receiving my bill and the price for 4 eggs with cheese was $14, I asked the waitress if there had been a mistake and she politely respond "no", and referred me to the manager, I politely asked the manager the same...question regarding the price of eggs, and he said the prices increased due to the price of the eggs and cheese. I said to him that was too much for 4 eggs, the next thing I knew the manager told me to stop B**CHING!!!!! At that point I was out done that the manager would talk to his customer like that, REALLY!!! And this is supposed to be a family restaurant, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THIS THE WAY A CUSTOMER SHOULD'VE BEEN TRIED!!!!!?More

This has been the go to restaurant for my family for 20 years. They have the best breakfast menu. We get their steak skillets, chocolate chip pancakes and the paninis are out of this world.

I picked up an order and noticed Simon, the owner, and all the waitresses I saw were not wearing masks. When I got home I called them and was told they let their customers decide if they want to wear a mask. Use at your...own risk!More

I have been a big fan of Simons for years. It is a stand alone, family owned Greek restaurant with great staff and consistently good food. The food and staff are not the problem. The problem is that most of the servers, cooks and owner...are no longer wearing masks and either are the patrons. Even though their signs as that patrons wear a mask. So, if this is going to bother you, you might want to consider eating elsewhere for a while.More

Place was packed on a Sunday am which was a good sign so in we went. Menu featured a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and entrees with some nice combinations - crepes with fresh strawberries, a bowl of soup with every lunch item (cream of...chicken was yummy). The plates of food were huge. Service was professional and fast- turning over tables. Indoor dining was pretty crowded - no covid precautions but ooutdoor dining was an option.More

My wife and I drove to Simons for dinner on Sunday. I ordered the SUNDAY SPECIAL "Pot Roast". When the order arrived I was confused and asked the waitress why I received sliced Roast Beef when I ordered the Pot Roast? The reply was that...was the way the chef sliced his pot roast! What, really that is not pot roast? The boss walked by and I asked him the same question and his reply was that the chef makes it in a triangle? What is that, treated me like I was an idiot! Not: I am sorry or with covid I ran out of Pot roast or I will remove it from the check or can I offer a free dessert, NOTHING, just that is our Chefs way? Well I am sorry that is not pot roast and more importantly I was made to be to feel like a victim! I was scammed, haha. Then when we paid the bill his only comment was "what are going to do this evening"? I told him go out and get some food. He snickered over his face mask that not over his nose ad gave me receipt. WOW never again will I eat here and neither should you !!!!!More

This place has been around for a while and I’ve always meant to try it. I did this morning and it lived up to my expectations. It was a breakfast trip and the place was not too busy for a weekday. The restaurant is clean...and well decorated. Very warm interior and inviting. Eggs, sausage, toast and hash browns were hot and delicious. The portion size was big but not too big. Fresh squeezed orange juice hit the spot. The true gem was the server, Barb. Very friendly and attentive with a great attitude and was a gem to meet. This place was great. Definitely a must stop if you’re in the area.More

We just happened on Simon's. It is well appointed, clean, with good prices and excellent food. I had a Strawberry Crepes. Excellent flavor with fresh strawberries! The sausage was just right with spices. Shout out to Christina! Excellent server who aimed to please with frequent...asking if all was well.More

My husband and I found Simons one day while waiting for a doctor's appointment. I'm a very picky eater. The fresh orange juice is always fantastic. The Denver's omelet is hands down the best I have ever had. The Greek toast is always fresh and...toasted to perfection. They give you a preserve of I believe raspberry and its amazing. The coffee is off the charts. I normally would have a half a cup, but Simon's coffee is so good. That I have two or three cups and sometimes take one to go. We live all the way in Hampshire and drive all the way just for the breakfast. I told my husband I would move just to be closer to Simon's. Not only is the good outstanding. The owner and staff are always super friendly and service is always top notch.More

Usually I really like Simon's, but this time I ordered the Simmons Chicken Salad and asked for it on a salad. The Chicken Salad was excellent, but the salad greens were really wilted.

Met with family at Simons recently. We’ve been here before for lunch and enjoyed it. Menu selection is huge. I chose the ham & cheddar omelette, which was hot and delicious. My bro had the French Toast and took some home. Others had pancakes or...crepes, which they enjoyed. Our waitress was patient and friendly. Highly recommend Simons!More
