Contemporary American
The Zagat Survey says, "There's much to like about this Washington Park Italian-New American: "good food", a "great patio" & "cheerful" service & ambiance."
An upscale age-diverse crowd mingles at this popular neighborhood restaurant & gathering place east of Wash Park.
A covered strip on the south and west side with heat and misters makes for convivial outdoor seating (you just might see a neighbor). A beautiful lounge is off to the side. 11 beers on tap, 15 in bottles and an excellent wine list at the elegant U-shaped bar. A roomy & elegant banquet room with its own patio and a presentation compatible 80” HDTV complete this restaurant for every occasion.
Dinners are mid-priced, with a nice selection of grilled seafood & steaks & several fancy pasta dishes. The lunch offerings include sandwiches, pizza, salads & pasta.

    5:30pm reservation on a Friday. The table wait staff throughout were professional and very pleasant. Service was marred however by delays in delivering ordered cocktails and the wine wasn’t served until dinner entrees were nearly finished. One of the cocktails was served in a glass with lipstick on it . That guest took a few sips and then noticed that the glass wasn’t clean. That guest does not wear lipstick. The wine “pours” were very skimpy. Perhaps the bar staff was lean that night. The short-ribs were overcooked - meat was mushy and the gravy sauce was like pudding.

    Since most restaurants seem to be chains anymore, this is our favorite local restaurant. It’s in a fun location, the menu is varied and the prices are very reasonable. It is a tad noisy but it almost adds to the casual, neighborhood vibe. We’ve been there many times and never left disappointed.

    I had a reservation. I requested a table in the room where live music was scheduled when I made the reservation, but when we arrived for our reservation, I was told there was a private party and we weren’t allowed into the music room AT ALL! I should have been notified of this prior to 7:00 on a Friday night. We decided to take a table anyway in the dining room, but when I requested my favorite salad, I was told the Lobster Club salad was no longer available and had been replaced with lamb. That is not a substitute for lobster! The seared tuna salad I ordered arrived with just lettuce and the tuna - nothing else, none of the other ingredients listed on the menu. What a huge dining disappointment.

    Seating was right next to the hostess stand. It’s was a teiget space and took several minutes longer then expected to have gotten any attention after seated. The tape was small but worked for the two of us. When we did get our order it was fantastic. Temp. Taste and overall amazing. Makes up for the slower service. In my experience I would at they where short staffed for the floor that day. We will go back as wash park grill is still one of our favorites

    5 stars for service! Ambience is nice and cocktails were great! Salmon salad was excellent as was the chicken pasta. My main complaint is with the bolognese. There was maybe 2 small shredded pieces of meat in the sauce, very little pasta and a pile of arugula on top to try to fill the bowl. If you are going to charge $26 for a bowl of pasta, please fill it with the main ingredients of the pasta.

    Good little neighborhood place. We go often because the price is right for what you get. I like the vibe better than the food. But it is "good". The drinks are great. Usually the wait staff is friendly and good. Last night was more of a miss.

    I had their Daily Pasta Special which was ravioli it was delicious. Salad very good and the garlic bread is just okay, I like soft breads and this one was toasted and gets hard quickly but some folks may really like it. Service was excellent.

    We went on a Saturday evening. It was very busy and noisy, but lively and people seemed to be enjoying themselves. Waitstaff was super busy, so not as attentive as we would have liked. Our food was quite good, but overpriced for what you got. I ordered a wine spritzer and found out when I got the check it cost $14! Yikes, that’s pricey for white wine with soda water. Overall, it was good and I would recommend it.

The chicken and waffles were the best I’ve eaten! I took an order of them to go for my husband! He loved them too! I am looking forward to going back!

    My chicken sandwich was undercooked in one area. Their brunch is a mere shadow of its former self. I don't like the growing trend of waiters with machines brought to your table with the minimum tip shown as 18% that is also miscalculated to include tax which it shouldn't be.

    Soda was flat and weak and they couldn’t fix it. They cram too many people in that space so it’s feels over crowded. Tables are sticky. Food was ok, but they could source better ingredients. Tomatoes had no flavor. Won’t go back.

    They were out of multiple "Specials" i.e. Halibut. Service was extremely sold, multiple tables got up and left prior to receiving food. We waited almost an hr for food, then the steaks were all cooked wrong and food was cold. The drawn butter for the grilled artichokes was rancid and had a blue cheese quality that was very off putting. Later in the evening all our guests that ate the drawn butter at all were ill. Saddest part is this was for a special birthday, the place could care less. The ambiance and location is very nice and could be a great place that was recommended - Unfortunately our experience was a disaster on multiple levels.
