I am fortunate to have this great restaurant right in my neighborhood. Stoney River is consistently excellent on service and the meals they serve.

On this visit we started with the Market (huge) and Caesar salads and they were both great. We really enjoy the little round poppyseed buns with honey butter. They pour a great Hendricks martini too. They have great steaks. I especially like the coffee rubbed filet. The burgundy mushrooms are yummy with your steaks. We were sitting in a booth by a fire which provided a very nice, romantic ambience.

It's an expensive meal but it was worth it!

Ciao Baby!

Reviewed By Kim G - West Dundee, Illinois, United States

My brothers and I met for dinner on Saturday night. We made reservations for 5pm and we were seated promptly. the front of the restaurant seems small and quaint, but it extends into a whole other room with plenty of seating. I was expecting more of an extensive wine list but they had they basics. We order the calamari fires which were excellent. the side salads left something to be desired. I felt like they threw all the ingredients into a blender on high. My brother hates tomatoes and had a hard time digging them out. I built my own pasta with penne, marinara, mushrooms and spinach. the marinara was bland but the meal was huge. I can always spice up the leftovers. My brothers had... one was a fish dish with linguine he said it was excellent, the other was a chicken breast with spinach, prosciutto and angel hair. Also very good. The 3 of us split a HUGE piece of Banana Cake! 2 thumbs up!

Artistic Cuisine

Reviewed By mary c - Evanston, Illinois

We chose Artistic Cuisine based on TA recommendations and were not disappointed! We all enjoyed our dinners very much- salmon, pot roast and steak! Our server was really nice and gave the birthday girl a complimentary tiramisu with a candle for dessert! We had a great time and would definitely recommend to family and friends!

Gianni's Cafe

Reviewed By Mike W - Palatine, Illinois

Have been to the Gianni's in Palatine and love it, decided to try the Kildeer location. We were not disappointed. Our server Allie L. was friendly and attentive. The food was on par with Palatine, delicious and big portions. The Kildeer location is smaller, and a bit louder, but that doesn't take away from the experience. Really like Gianni's, either location!

Spunky Dunkers Donuts

Reviewed By Charles C - Buffalo Grove, Illinois

Their Boston Creme filled donuts are amazing. the cream is rich and has wonderful flavor. The double chocolate donuts are very good, as are the red velvet.They make two types of glazed donuts, with the cake as my favorite. They have all types of powdered sugar, jelly filled donuts. My favorite is the blackberry. They are very generous on all of the fillings.

They bake all of the donuts on site. They are open 24 Hours a day. as this is a stand-alone facility, they have plenty of parking. 6 donuts are under $6. They also have day old donuts for 1/2 price. There is some space at a counter to have coffee and your donuts.

Tacos El Norte

Reviewed By tedkirby - Lexington, Massachusetts

Went here on a Saturday night. Place was crowded but there were still plenty of empty tables so I got seated right away. Got the Fajita burrito, it was delicious! Like one of the best burritos I've ever had. Chips it came with were good too. The margarita was OK, but was a big size for the price which was good.

Service, it started out fine. However when I had finished half my burrito and all of my margarita, they only asked if I wanted a box for burrito, not if I wanted another drink, which I did. Well, if they wanted me to leave and not give them more money, then I was happy to oblige them.

Casual Italian restaurant offering an extensive selection of housemade and imported pastas, soups and salads, pizza, steaks, seafood and desserts. Large portions of affordably priced menu selections are prepared with the freshest ingredients available.

Reviewed By Deborah T - Chicago, Illinois

I stop by Biaggi's a few times a month as it is very close to my house. I started with a Wedge Salad served with blue cheese dressing. Yummy. I had the Shrimp Oreganata that was excellent. It's served with a small serving of angel hair pasta at the center of the dish that's surrounded by perfectly cooked shrimp. This is now one of my favorite dishes. Service was excellent.

Tsukasa Of Tokyo

Reviewed By Anuj S - Chicago, Illinois

We went for family dinner on daughter's birthday, as she love Hibachi food and all the antics chef does while preparing the food. Our first impression when we entered the restaurant was not that great, it was looking very dull and empty inside that too on Friday night. We ordered for hibachi and teriyaki chicken dishes along with traditional soup. Food was good and chef and support staff kept us in good humor. But overall this place looks very dull. We have been to another Tsukasa restaurant, few miles away in Vernon Hills, and that is much better and bigger and lively, than this one.
