Was treated terribly by manager/owner. It was hard to get a reservations: first they wouldn't take one, then I had to have one to use groupon. Then treated like poor relation. We live in Wilmette and eat out frequently at similarly priced establishments. We will never go to Fuel again after how we were treated.

I live a distance feom this restaurant and I never would have known or tried it without Groupon, however managers policy abd attitude really sets the tone. It was obvious that there was an air of ingratitude and also unwelcoming by owner alone. The rest of the experience was pleasant but patronage here to benefit this man is not something I feel good about.

Why accept reservations if you make the guests wait 25 minutes once they arrive? We won't be back.

They were unreasonably difficult with their first round of dinner groupons. We weren't able to get in using it, and then they didn't honor the amount paid after the expiration date, which groupon guarantees. We'd already bought the lunch one, so we had to go back. I felt they vastly inflated the potential value of the groupon-I think they said it could be worth $58?! It felt like we didn't get a good deal for using the groupon. Paid just about what we would've paid if we went there for lunch.

As loyal fans of Fuel, we came away feeling like we were ripped off by the Groupon. Our bill, after adding in all the items not covered (a bowl of soup, a side of bacon) was about what we usually spend at the restaurant, notwithstanding what we payed for the Groupon (and I understand wine is not included, no beef with that). As well, the extensive list of "not included in the Groupon" menu items was disappointing given that the menu is already of modest length (though consistently excellent). My point is, if you send loyal customers away feeling like they've been sold a bill of goods, you are probably not achieving your goals for the Groupn offering.

It was a little too expensive for my taste. I would go back if there were other promotions.
