Food was great (lamb sausage, cheese, salads), service average, dining room outdated and a bit run down. Very overpriced considering a fairly standard menu and below average atmosphere.

Very disappointed that your menu offers lamb sausage again but in a mix with vegetables. Did not want to even try it. Also the kitchen was out of a special salad with Ravinia lettuce Etc but it wasn’t even 6:45! Plus my husband said his fish was fair...won’t be coming back anytime soon..

We meet with friends who were in from out of town. None of us had been to Prairie Grass in a number of years. We all had good memories from past visits and were not disappointed on this visit.

We dine multiple times per year at Prairie Grass.

Always highly satisfying

We enjoy fact that it’s menu offerings vary from one visit to the next.

As well, service is exemplary.

Service and food were excellent. Burger and skirt steak live up to their top notch reputation. Banana cream pie was delectable. Even the coffee was delicious and the warm complimentary bread was to die for!

We came for dinner and a birthday celebration. We had an excellent dinner and the service was excellent. Our server was very attentive and friendly as well as professional.
I had arranged for a birthday cupcake to come to our table and it was beautifully presented.
We really enjoyed our dinner.

We had a pleasant dinner after attending the Botanic Garden's Lightscape. If we go to the CBG again and want an alternative to their restaurants, we will go back to Prairie Grass.

We love Prairie Grass, and enjoy it. Our server, as well as the back waiters, food runners, etc are always pleasant. We arrived and were taken to a table in the back room, in a corner, next to an emergency exit and fire extinguisher. It was a bit cramped. When I asked the hostess if we could move to a table in a more open area, she became quite huffy with us. She spun on her heels and marched, very quickly, to another, more desirable, table. She never said “sure, or please follow me”. She dealt out the menus in a very brusk manner, and quickly said “enjoy your meal” and marched off. It was a bit off putting. Lucky for her, we know the restaurant well enough to know that this isn’t typical, and also, our server was delightful, as she always is, which diffused the initial bad feelings.

Chef George’s cooking is phenomenal and the service just lifts up an already amazing dining experience. I highly recommend Jose as your server. He offered our table a delicious glass of Rose along with our arugula salad. Bread service and water refill was prompt and seemless. I’m enjoying a conversation with my guest and bam, more bread, an extra coke, and a refill on my cocktail. I had their ancho skirt steak as my entree and it was delightful. 10/10 recommend.

The food was wonderful-we had a mix of specials (chicken Caesar flatbread) and regular menu items (burger and crispy chicken). The restaurant was packed (congrats) so we ate at the bar. We didn’t realize it at the time, but the bartender was gone for our first 15 minutes so we didn’t get drinks for the first 10, then we got our water and sodas (from what turned out to be a hard-working non-bartender), then we got a beer when the bartender returned. From then on, service was great.

We came to Prairie Grass for our 1st time 2 weeks ago. Our experience from food to service was not good. When we left, the next day the owner, George called to express his sincerest apology for our experience. He said he was going to send us a gift certificate to come back and try Prairie Grass again, and he said he was going to reimburse our meal as well. George, not only sent us a $100.00 gift certificate, he reimbursed our $77.00 meal from 2 weeks prior. He also comped the remainder of the bill this evening, that was over $100.00 . That being said, our meal, service and ambiance was perfection. From the minute we sat down until we left, our evening out at Prairie grass was amazing. We will be back. Thank you George for treating your customers with such great care.

Excellent dinner for our party of 8 to celebrate the holidays. 7 of us had the fabulous sirloin burger, one person had a fish selection. Thought the single wine glass prices were high, and the pour rather skimpy. Will probably return but order wine.

Chicken rice soup tasty, but why have potatoes in it? Ordered half crispy boneless chicken. Serving is a breast & thigh. In what universe is that a half chicken? Where's the wing & leg? Since I don't eat dark meat only had the breast. Extremely dry & not at all crispy. Tasted very much like a reheated piece of meat. The rice was good and squash mediocre. Extremely poor value for price of meal.

Very busy early Sunday night, seated promptly, service uneven. We had barely sat down when our server wanted to take our order. We said we needed a minute, then it was quite a few minutes before he returned. Then our entrees were brought out before we had finished our appetizers. We ordered a bottle of wine and server never returned to pour more. Not a big deal, we can pour our own wine, but a little more attention would have been nice. But, as I said, it was very busy. Food was delicious. I had the duck, my husband had a filet, both were perfectly cooked.

The food was just ok and the dessert was bland..... the banana cream pie had no taste and presentation ... it was basically dried crust and whipped cream.

Not worth the $$. Will not plan to return.
