One Fifty One Kitchen & Bar
We were a group of 5 adults and 2 children. Our server was friendly and professional. Our drinks and appetizers came out quickly. Our entrees were another story - the server was very good about letting us know the status of the food, such as telling us when it was plated, but it took quite a while for the entrees to come out. It wasn't even terribly busy. The food, when it arrived, was overall very good. P.S> Do not miss the banana bread appetizer!
The scallops were outrageously expensive at $29.00 for three small sized scallops and the accompanying risotto tasted like paste. The iced tea was $4.00 for a very medium size glass. The service was not the best as the server did not come over once during the whole meal to see if either party wanted a refill or new item. I️ personally will not eat at this restaurant again and will not recommend to anyone
Great place - ambiance is wonderful! Food was so good the appetizer were awesome.
We tried several of them and all of them were so flavorful and fresh! Service was excellent.
We came to One Fifty One to celebrate our friend's upcoming wedding. We had planned to eat dinner here, which we did not. I had to ask the hostess to send over my server after waiting for 15 minutes for her to stop by the table. It took 20 minutes to receive my drink order. The service was beyond slow so we decided we would not eat dinner there. We did order a few appetizers, which came out before everyone else received their drinks. The restaurant was somewhat busy but not every table was filled. Even if every table was filled, it should not take 15 minutes for a server to come to the table or 20 minutes to get a drink.
Hi Katie. Im sorry to hear that you had to wait longer than is appropriate for your sever. We did do over 250 covers that evening so the restaurant was in full swish and a bit hectic, which I apologize for. I hope your will come back and give us another try during a non-event weekend! Thanks for the feedback, I will share with my team. All the best.
We will never go back
We were charged for 3 drinks we didn’t order
Brought it to managers attention and they didn’t even apologize
Will not recommend to anyone
Hi Karen. The gentlemen at the table did come speak to me away from the table, which I did apologize for and immediately removed from the tab, no questions asked. As for your service review, you did join us during Rock The Block, our street festival, things tend to get a bit hectic, which I do apologize for. I hope you will give us another try on a normal weekend so we can show you how terrific our service normally is. Take Care.
Meghan was fantastic connecting with us as customers. Authentically friendly! I definitely will recommend this restaurant: food was fantastic at well!
some things would need to change to recommend. Food always need flavoring, our meals were bland. We were there during Rock the Block which we were unaware of making it a stressful experience. It was also an anniversary dinner and we were seated in the main aisle to the kitchen....not very romantic. Our waitress disappeared for almost 20 minutes during middle of meal, I had to get busboy to get us drinks. other than that...……….I had high hopes which were not achieved.
Hi Steve. You are correct, it was a very busy Rock the Block. We always try to accommodate guests with celebrations, however, it's not always obtainable on very busy nights. We always recommend a call in advance to ensure we can accommodate special needs in regards to seating. Of course, it was not our intention to provide your with a stressful experience. I hope you will give us another try in the near future. Take Care.
Food very good but service was lethargic
Hubs & I wanted to try One Fifty One as we are thinking of moving nearby. Our server was awesome, attentive, and our appetizers were very tasty.
Great food and atmosphere. I’d go again to try more items on the gluten free menu!
Food was just fair. Outside dining smelly and noisy
We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal as much as we would have hoped! Would love to hear more about what you dined on.....151elmhurst@gmail Unfortunately we cannot control traffic or smells from the outside. I would suggest dining indoors next time. Thanks in advance.
Great atmosphere, food and drinks were delicious. Had a terrific server named Megan, she took great care of us.
Great food, nice menu and excellent service. The only negative was the outside patio was very tight quarters.
The waitress and staff were very attentive and made recommendations.
I was looking for a place to celebrate my birthday with my family and I was told this would be a nice place.
Everyone was so nice
The food was excellent
Would come back when back in town 😁😊
Started with pork belly, incredible flavor & cooked to perfection. Also had the baked beer with figs, walnuts & jalapeno honey (don't let the name scare you - it was not HOT)
The place looks great, food is awesome, but I did not feel welcomed when I walked in and being served. I was alone but I did not think this fact will play a difference. Next time I will bring manikin with me maybe I will be treated a bit better. No, just kidding, there will be no next time. I ordered the most expensive dish on the menu, I left a handsome tip., I am not coming back there again. I love good food, I don't mind spending ridiculous money on good food but I do care for the atmosphere as much as I do food!
We ate outside so we had outside noice. But it is perfect. I love Elmhurst and it is right in the center of town. The food is fabulous and the service was on point. Wonderful experience.
I loved the ambience. One Fifty One Kitchen is in a good location, downtown Elmhurst. Good food, good service. No complaints.
The menu was not appetizing the way we had thought it was going to be.
Delightful! We were celebrating two birthdays with four of us who had different tastes and we all thought our meal selection was the best. Knowing we were celebrating two birthdays, we were given the choice of two scrumptious desserts on the house. Actually just one of these desserts was enough for all four of us to share.
Our server was great, loved the atmosphere and the cocktails, but the food was a fairly overpriced for what you get. Not sure I’ll be back.
Wonderful restaurant in charming downtown Elmhurst. I loved the food and beverage choices and found the atmosphere to be most pleasant as well.
Nice atmosphere and good service, but the steak was not cooked properly for a couple of us at the table.
Such a cute modern restaurant! Fried chicken sandwich was tasty, but is kind of messy (starts falling apart with each bite). The frosé was another highlight!
I ordered an beet salad that only contained 2 thin slices of a raw beet and a few raw chunks. The salad was limp, with ok grilled chicken. The tomato soup was good. My lunch companion didn't eat much of her crispy chicken sandwich. Big disappointment.
The food was delicious, our server was fantastic, and the drinks were great too!
Food and service was excellent,noise level Was moderate everything was very good except the prices for drinks were a little on the high side.
Best meal I’ve had in a long time. ♥️
It was a great dinner spot for our family. Everyone loved the starters and their own entrees. The food was great, service was spot on, and we liked the look of the place. Will definitely come back.
Interesting menu........no executed well. Overpriced. Inexperienced servers
Food was so good. We had the pork belly with risotto- excellent, house made gardiniera- omg! That dish is perfect! Then we had the baked brie. That also was fabulous and we did not all the extra bread. Ryan was our server and he was wonderful. Sitting outside was quite a treat! Definitely be back.
Great frozen drinks, delicious food and great service. I will definitely go back.
It was an awesome fathers day experience! Melissa was knowledgeable, polite and kept us informed of obvious kitchen delays as a result of the holiday. We hadn't ever been to 151 before, so she took the extra time to run through what the place was about. The crabby Benedict was perfect...outstanding job from the kitchen. The server took amazing care of us and we will be back.
I had a hamburger
Very good service. Quite loud. Very small portion on a pasta dish. Great grits. Beet salad disappointing. I didn’t like the steak as, although it was a ribeye, it was more fat than meat, however, another person at the table likes hers.
Went for my birthday celebration and was pleasantly surprised that we were sat in the front room, so cozy since we were only six people. From the hostess to our server, Andrea, a busboy named Connor and later another tall young man, where so attentive it made my celebration so memorable. They were on top of their game when taking our orders, checking to see how we were on our drinks, to keeping our table clean. So friendly and that shows they are happy to be working there.
I enjoyed the hangar steak and fingerling potatoes. Very tasty!
This was a very good spot for a business lunch. The menu was diverse; the farm-to-table entrees received a thumbs-up from everyone in our group; it was not overly formal, but nice; and it is located conveniently downtown, with ample public parking nearby.
