I don't know about anything "ancient" here. The pasta is hand-crafte dso it's certainly not ancient. And the people are a nice mix of young, old and families. All nationalities. A cute little birthday girl with a sparkler. Buzzing but not noisy.
In the first floor of Oak Brook Center office building. Convenient to garage. Staff is knowledgeable, quick and welcoming. For us, quick seating. Near window. Lots of action.
I had the scallops in angel hair. Very good. Our family members all had three plates of shrimp linguini.They offer brick oven pizzas. Margueritas pizzas are specialities. Pistachio gellato is delicious.

This is really a fantastic restaurant with fancy desserts and food! They gives you a lot of food to eat, in which, you can take the rest of it home. We celebrated my cousin birthday. The restaurant provided a platter with different desserts to choose from; however, he could select one free for his birthday. The Seafood Platter, Fish and Potatoes, Pasta Mardi Gras, and Shrimp & Cajun Chicken Tenderloins were delicious. Please make your reservation early, otherwise, you might have to wait. However, we were in a private section. This was very nice celebration!!!

The Cheesecake Factory offers something for everyone featuring a wide variety of over 200 menu items prepared fresh to order each day, plus over 30 legendary varieties of the Finest Cheesecake.
We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful opportunity to dine here! Our other place is the Cheese Cake Factory at Mayfair in Milwaukee, Wi.
There's a wait here but we decided to have lunch at the bar! What a wonderful time we had doing that. People were very great and friendly conversations were pleasant complete with fantastic suggestions for dinning. The Cajun Pasta was incredibly delicious along with a salad which included beets and blue cheese. We really like spicy foods so the pasta hit the spot! A lovely lemon tart was shared for a great treat and many at the bar inquired about the taste. Lovely presentation for the entire meal and a generous portion as well!
We don't dine here or at any of these restaurants often yet each time we have in the past three visits, we've been very pleased! Love the ambiance, cleanliness and services. Consistency is a must for the chain sites and we can verify that they are absolutely fantastic!

Cozy, warm, clubby decor makes The Capital Grille a comforting venue for patrons looking for a generous sized meal in an upscale atmosphere. Valet parking is offered, and self-parkers will find ample spots since the restaurant is adjacent to a shopping mall.
The Capital Grille's wine list is extensive and its menu is varied. In particular, their steaks are phenomenal, with many types from which to choose, from a manageable-sized filet mignon to much larger cuts. Lobster is prepared nicely without overcooking; the soups are delicious, ranging from bisques to a delicious crock of traditional onion topped with grill-melted cheese.
My husband and I split the Buratta salad with poached pears, pesto sauce and arugula: delightful.
For a special occasion such as an anniversary, not only will the diners be greeted with a handwritten card at a rose petal-strewn table, but your photo will be taken and a mouthwatering free dessert will arrive on a platter hand lettered in chocolate with good wishes! Our molten chocolate cake with ice cream and blueberries was out of this world.
We have sat in various spots in this restaurant, from a round near the open kitchen to a large corner booth to a small table in a cozy room with only two other parties nearby. Each offers its own experience, but our preference is always for more privacy.
Service is attentive but not exceptional, and unfortunately, occasionally irritating. For the high price point of this restaurant, this reviewer would not expect to be addressed as "you two", asked if one were "still nibbling", or be prompted in an evaluative direction by being asked if our food was tasting fantastic. Every restaurant has room for improvement, however, and the food more than makes up for the service shortfalls at The Capital Grille.

We moved away from the Hinsdale area in 2013. Visiting for the weekend and we were looking forward to the usual exceptional dinning experience at Egg Harbor Hinsdale. We left a little disappointed. I ordered the Door County Melt; looking forward to the wonderful combination of flavors. Gone were the potato pancakes. No apple sauce and sour cream to spread. Salad was served dry - no dressing. Even the multi-grain bread had changed. My wife shared that she was not "wow'd" by her breakfast either.

With an indulgent menu focused on superior quality seafood, Devon Seafood + Steak crafts its dishes with exacting standards & pampers its guests in a comfortable atmosphere. Featuring a generous cellar selection, an oyster bar & creative cuisine, Devon delivers culinary excellence at a surprising value. Open for lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch.
This restaurant is located in a busy strip mall. We were meeting friends so we sat a high top in the bar (it was quieter.) We split a calamari, tune poke, spicy tuna roll and half a dozen oysters to start. One couple split the walleye and the other the mixed seafood grill. Service was spotty. We were not offered their signature biscuits until after we completed all of our appetizers. (boo!) We washed it all down with a couple of bottles of Miner Viognier. We have had better experiences. Total bill for 4 including tip and wine was $245.

When we visit Chicago, there are 3 "musts"; bakery from Vesecky (in Berwyn), sausage pizza from Home Run Inn, and roast duck dinners at the Bohemian Crystal.
Start with one of the homemade soups, especially the split-pea, goulash or potato options (there is salad--but that's available anywhere).
If it's ones 1st time here; try a sampler platter; but definitely have at least one person get the 1/2 duck dinner (there's a 1/4 duck dinner, but even the leftovers are great).
After ones initiation; the pork tenderloin, smoke butt, fruit dumplings, etc...are all worthy contenders.
And, don't forget the sides; dumplings, boiled potatoes, sweet cabbage...all take one on an Eastern European culinary treat odyssey.
The kolacky make for a tasty ending (and a few for the road is always a good idea).
Leftovers are expected; and the staff are friendly and very accommodating with helping one box up& carry out what's left. (A special shout out to the busing team who constantly keep the tables clean and organized).
At one time, there were many great Czech restaurants throughout the Chicago area; today, the numbers have dwindled. The Bohemian Crystal carries on the old-school tradition.
Short of having a babi (grandma), tucked away at home cooking up great recipes from the family archive; visit here, and enjoy a mini Eastern European taste bud vacation.

Parkers' Restaurant & Bar is a chef-driven, full service, contemporary American restaurant and bar serving lunch, dinner, and private functions. The restaurant features fresh fish and seafood along with high quality meat and pasta preparations. The restaurant is housed in a transformed New England-style building on Highland Avenue at 31st, just north of I88 in Downers Grove, a western suburb of Chicago. The ambiance is casual-upscale with a mosaic tiled, open kitchen adjacent to a 150 seat dining room featuring a polished hardwood decor. The cozy, 50 seat bar and cocktail lounge area features a dramatic, wood vaulted ceiling and live piano entertainment, in the evening.
Overall, food choices were good and our guests enjoyed what they ordered. Desserts were creative and excellent. Service was relatively slow probably due to the crowd/service ratio. What was purportedly Boulliabaise was more of a Cioppino given the heavy tomato flavor. Would not order it again but those in the party that ordered steaks were very happy with their choices.

We had met some other people here for lunch. My wife had a combination plate and I ordered the Gyro sandwich. The wife munch enjoyed her plate although the Gyro for me fell short big time. The meat was dry and seemed to be overcooked. The pita did not seem fresh. On top of that they charge $15.00 for it! I have had much better Gyro sandwiches at other places for half that cost. Unfortunately, I was not impressed with the sandwich and certainly not the price. I wish I would have ordered something else off the menu and think I would have most likely had a much better experience.
The server although got us what we needed did not seem very personable.
