“A perfect lunch spot when visiting Northwestern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Been here a number of times and am never disappointed. Lunches come with salad or soup and the entrees are well-made and ample.

“overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

we have eaten lunch and dinner here, but mainly have used it as a carry-out source. the restaurant ambiance is kind of dark and depressing. you can see these people are trying hard in a thin-margin business, and they always look exhausted and lifeless. the food is not bad, if unremarkable, in a crowded evanston field, lunch is the better deal.
however,this past week we carried out dinner from them for the last time. we ordered 1 appetizer and 1 entree, and the bill was $30. i will pay for exceptional food, but this was ridiculous. there are too many other good choices at far less cost from which to choose. the carry-out food is always in cheap styrofoam containers...not the kind of presentation you would expect after charging such high prices.

“Good food but a diner atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

Don't go here for the ambiance. It feels like a glorified diner, and the service matches, but the food is very good and the portions are generous.

“Good brunches and comfort food dinners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Nice comfortable neighborhood restaurant adjacent to the "L" tracks and Noyes Street station. They usually do a decent job on broiled fish entrees. Wine list has a fair variety although maybe a bit overpriced. It is the North Shore , however, so to be expected. Otherwise one can dine here with a glass of wine and get out for $25-35 including tip. Salads could use some better mixture of lettuces for flavor--their Ceasar dressing hints at anchovies but seemed heavy. Service is very good and efficient.
