“Second try”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I recently gave Tiffany's a bad review, and Nick, the new manager offered to comp me a meal. So I took him up on it.

The new owners have improved things, the place was pretty busy on a Saturday morning, and most of us were happy with our food. A fresh coat of paint in cheerful colors, new menu, (mostly) new waitstaff -- and the bathroom is no longer falling apart and freezing! The new crew is doing a good job with turning the restaurant around. We're willing to give it another try. Thanks, Nick.

“Surprisingly good, great value.”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Tiffany's looked like a cheap small-town restaurant, but a bit bigger. It is not haute cuisine, but it has an extensive menu, something for anybody. The food was good, the portions LARGE - the biggest piece of salmon I have ever attempted to eat. and the prices are small. Our waitress, Gina , was an old pro, great service and personality. An excellent value and nice experience.

“A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE!!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We stayed at the nearby Comfort Inn where we left our car and flew to California.

It was snowing hard, and we ate a delicious meal there for the evening before the flight. Upon returning, we picked up our car and also ate lunch before driving home.

This place has recently changed ownership, and for the price, the food was absolutely TOPS!

It was fresh, well prepared, and served by friendly, courteous personnel. We felt like honored guests, and instant friends, which is not always the case.

WE HEARTILY RECOMMEND THIS AS WELL AS THE NEARBY COMFORT INN, ESPECIALLY WHEN TRAVELING THROUGH O'HARE.

“Convenient Location and Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We ate here because it was across the Parking lot from our Park/Sleep/Fly hotel. The food is average and the prices were great - the grilled whitefish special with very good fresh vegetables, baked potato and soup or salad for $12. They also serve a hot breakfast.

One tip - I think they lock the doors a bit early - 9:00 p. on a Sunday night when the hotel was filling up with tired and hungry travelers whose flights from O'Hare had been cancelled.

“We've had it”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Not sure where all the glowing, great ratings come from on this place.

We've been coming here for years for our quarterly networking meetings. It had personable waitresses who were a lot of fun, good (inexpensive) food, meeting room, etc.

Since the new management took over about a year ago, the quality has seriously dropped off. The fun waitstaff are no longer there, service is slow and impersonal, few people there, multiple messed-up orders, tables not properly set (we had to forage for salt, pepper, flatware), reservation for meeting room messed up. We'll not be back.

I apologize for your experience. Tiffany's Restaurant has recently been renovated and is now under new management. The standards have changed and so has the food. Please let me know when you can return so I can buy you lunch. Please ask for Nick, General Manager.
