Went for special family occassion, was wonderful. Met Lawrence the new owner and chef who was very interested in our feedback on every course, and we had them all. Marcello our waiter could not have been more attentive. Great experience and meal.

Food: Their chicken parmesan might be the worst we ever had. Service: We waited more than half an hour after we asked for the check and mentioned we had a groupon to use... The server was busy with other tables (there were only 4 tables of people at that time) and seemed to totally forget about us. Eventually he came back and said that he could only deduct $30 from our bill (we had a $60 groupon), because we did not order three-course meals. There's no such requirement in our groupon at all!!! The server said he will show us his version of groupon, for which we waited for another five minutes or so. The end of the story is he deduct $60 with no explanation at all. Would not go again.

Was previously "our special place." New owners have let us down. The lamb was tough and had lots of waste. The server lacked complete knowledge of food prep. And the piano bar which made this so much more special was gone.

From Our Editors

For Chef Rob, cooking fine cuisine is a family affair. He learned his skills at the knee of his Sicilian grandmother, who taught him everything he knows about how to run a kitchen. Today, he still hones his recipes in a similar setting, cooking furiously as his wife and daughter stand ready to dutifully taste his creations. After finishing his at-home experiments with the daily haul from the local market, he heads to Wilmette Chop House to begin preparing food for that night‘s hungry customers.

During the dinner rush, Rob welcomes many of the same faces that he laughed and joked with at the market that morning. He oversees a grill filled with filet mignon, lobster tails, and his signature double-cut bone-in smoked pork chops. These delicious proteins come out hot on the heels of fresh-baked bread, acquired from Heavenly Hearth Bakery just around the corner. To wash down Chef Rob’s creations, bartenders mix up the restaurant’s signature cocktail—the Thin Mintini. In addition to describing the drink's refreshing taste, the beverage’s name also hints at the building’s history; the venue once served as the original bakery for the Girl Scouts of the USA.

Not content to cater only to two of the five senses, Rob also retains the services of professional musicians at his piano bar on most evenings, who wow audiences and reviewers with their skill at the keys and with catching food tossed at their mouths.
