    They didn’t have our reservation.We waited for 15min until someone came to our table. Menus differs online & in house. Food was good but we were missing some veggies to choose from. This place definitely needs some improvement on their service. Our server (Tamara T)didn’t know what she was doing.

    Valet parking is mandatory and the service is excellent. The food was superb. The waitress we had goofed up a few items and was extremely SLOW. She liked chit chatting with the other staff and you just couldn't find her or flag her down. She virtually ruined the dinner for us. I would recommend this place for a great meal.

    We had a reservation but when we entered the restaurant, no one greeted us for about 15 minutes and then they said that I did not have a reservation. They did seat us, however in the bar. It was very noisy and then they turned up the music even louder. Meal was very slow coming out and in odd order (salad first, then appetizer). They were incapable of making a gin martini, even when I gave explicit instructions (no vermouth - pretty much got a glass of vermouth and they upcharged us for that). Food was okay but would never go back.

    Beautiful patio...if you don’t mind sitting with all the smokers. Walking up to the front door are more tables filled with ashtrays, so the entry smells like smoke. Huge turnoff. My husband enjoyed his food but my burger tasted like it was all filler (breadcrumbs) and was super salty. I wouldn’t go back.

    The Sunday brunch buffet is excellent. You need to go there several times, because there is no way you can try everything in one sitting. They also have live music.

    This is an interesting restaurant. My husband and I visited for dinner with another couple. We booked on open table for 6:45 because nothing was available after 7:00 so I expected a full restaurant. We arrived and there is a required valet service. When we walked in the restaurant was pretty empty. It was clean and the decor and ambience was beautiful. We ordered the feta cheese as an appetizer and three glasses of various wines. The cheese was delicious. The wine wasn't great. We ordered the meal platter for four which was various meats served on top of fries. The meats were AMAZING! So well cooked and seasoned. The fries were not great and almost cheapened the meal. The restaurant never filled up and the waitress was nice but not very attentive to us. When we got our bill, we were shocked at how inexpensive the meal was for everything we got. Definitely worth a visit!!

    Jelena was awesome! We are super American & had no idea what to expect but heard that “the Serbian restaurant down the street was fantastic”...it truly was! She helped us get through the menu and order the most amazing dishes. There were three of us but we ordered four entrees to have our own little buffet to try a little bit of everything she recommended ... The stuffed chicken with mushroom sauce was out of this world. The “pillows” were delicious. We also tried stuffed peppers-amazing and pork kabobs. So impressed. Cannot wait to go back! We are so full & cannot wait for left over lunch tomorrow! Thanks Jelena & Chef!

    On a Saturday night only a couple tables were filled. A family, apparently known to the staff, allowed their three young children to use the restaurant as a playground. Cute kids, but not shy about making noise and moving furniture. Service was friendly, slow, and not helpful in describing dishes on the menu. Food is fine, but not a good dining experience.

    The PEARL of Ogden Ave. is what I call this restaurant after dining here. EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE and EXCEPTIONAL FOOD are what a person will find at SKADARLIYA. We started with the "FETA CHEESE" doused in olive oil and oregano topped with black and green olives as well as onions along with a "MACEDONIAN" Red Blend Wine recommended by our waitress. We were presented a basket of "SERBIAN" Bread that was fresh, warm and not a hard crust as some restaurants present where you can break a tooth. The "SHOPSKA" salad was firm even with grated FETA Cheese sprinkeld on top. Onto dinner! "TROUT" at it's FINEST! Broiled to perfection served on a bed of rice and the flesh of the fish melting like butter in your mouth followed by a Fruit Filled "CREPE" that was pleasing to the sweet tooth. The ONLY drawback we had was our HOSTESS. You don't seat four and give ONE MENU and walk away and not say a word other than "I don't speak English". Had to interupt her after she sat another couple who were given two menus by her in the cafe section. She had three menus she was ready to give to another group outside and I pointed to those menus as I wanted them and took them back to my table. When we left, her English became FLAWLESS. "Hope you had a great evening and thank you, please come again." As long as the manager(s) guide her to do things RIGHT, from the moment the patrons come in you won't have a problem. SKADARLIYA is a GEM and I know that I will be back for the Food, the Drink, the SERVICE and the Entertainment.

    Food was delicious and so inexpensive. Waitress was nice and reasonably attentive given the size of her section. It was a little cold seated under the a/c vents, but most of us brought sweaters/sweatshirts to layer, and the rest of us ordered Serbian beers, so we were fine. It is a hidden gem in Brookfield and will become one of our regular go-to spots for delicious food at great prices! Also, we sat inside, but the outdoor seating looked beautiful, we’ll try it next time.

    First time dining for my mother's birthday. Our group of six enjoyed the fried cheese appetizer, a cucumber and tomato salad and the skardilya meal for 6. Food was great and we left with enough food for dinner the next night. Would love to go back and try some other offerings.

    A big open space with many tables available for big groups makes this place a good choice for families and groups. The service was fast and friendly and the food beautifully presented and plentiful. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends. (as an aside, though the reservation was confirmed by Open Table, the restaurant seemed unaware or maybe confused about this option. Perhaps, not many of their costumers use the app yet, but this could be an issue on busy nights)
