It was a pleasant experience overall. Our server did forget to bring our salad dressing as we did ask for it on the side. Also, my daughter has a mushroom allergy and we asked for no mushrooms in her bowl but they were put in anyway. I know the server wrote it down but for some reason the kitchen did not follow the note. Very scary but we did see them before she ate them. So important to read each note on the ordering ticket.

I am dairy sensitive. I was thrilled to have several vegan options. And they were clearly marked on the menu. I had the pizza with butternut squash and ricotta, as well as the cauliflower appetizer. Both were delicious! Our waiter was attentive overall, and paid special attention to my dairy sensitive dietary needs. I liked the vibe of the place. I will be back!

I was looking forward to dining at this new establishment in the Oakbrook Mall. The atmosphere was very light, bright and inviting. Service was prompt and accommodating while we waited for the rest of the group to arrive. The menu selection was varied and hard to make a decision since everything looked delicious. We had the Herb Hummas starter to hold the party over. It was very good with lots of garlic but not overpowering!! The entrees were all excellent. We had the Grilled Chicken Avocado Wrap, Teriyaki Quinoa and Cauliflower Polenta. Portions were very satisfying and flavorful. We did not have room for dessert but will be sure to have some on my next visit. The kids menu was refreshing and I was delighted not to see the dreaded chicken fingers, grilled cheese or PBJ choices. And the full service bar was an extra bonus for any skeptical diners. 5 stars all around and will return!! Thank you for offering a healthy and delicious dining option.

Had to wait quite a while past our reservation time. Service was not good however food was, albeit pretty small portions. Entirely too loud to have a private conversation. Very few vegan choices in the area, had much higher hopes. Disappointed.

We normally have a great experience here. Unfortunately this time 3/4 of our orders were delivered wrong, and the sweet potato’s were burnt. The waitress brought replacement potatoes but they too were burnt. The kitchen forgot the mushrooms on my dish, and put ingredients on my son’s and husband’s orders that they had asked to be removed. It was a busy night but that is no excuse for poor attention to detail!

the butternut suqash pizza was a bit undercooked. Had hard butternut squash and the center of the pizza was a bit soft. It is usually the best thing on the menu but seemed to be off its game that night. The quinoa bowl was more brown rice than anything. For the cost, i would of wanted it the other way around. The sauce for the bowl was a bit bland but ok.

Gluten free and dairy free options were amazing! We had the Korean bowl and butternut squash pizza on GF crust. The pizza crust was crunchy and had a nice buttery taste even though it was dairy free.

The service wasn't great and we had to keep asking for our server.

Great concept and location, BUT- we waited 20 min to place our order.
We ordered salads and it took 40 minutes to get our dinner. The server forgot our appetizer. They offered free dessert, but we were already late for our show. Maybe better for lunch.
It was also way over erpriced.

Mom & I lunched here & our experience was nothing short of perfection! The natural and organic interior made us feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space. Our server was very friendly and made awesome suggestions. We started with a pomegranate and ginger concoctions-very refreshing & delicious. Next up our edamame guacamole with homemade pita chips followed by the teriyaki bowl for Mom & the Ancient Grains Bowl pour moi. All I can say is what the chef did to those bowls was beyond!!! They were healthy, full of flavor and we enjoyed them thoroughly! I can’t wait to try everything on the menu. Thank you for bringing this amazing clean whole food restaurant to illinois!!!!!!

I was there with a couple of friends on a weeknight. They had a good selection of wines and cocktails as well as food to accommodate the diet restrictions of one person in our group. I had the skinny margarita with no simple syrup and shared a bottle of wine. The server was open to all our questions and if he didn’t have an answer, he went and got one.
We were able to share some appetizers and have some entrees. We had the edamame dumplings and cauliflower for apps and then pizza, salad and fish tacos for dinner. Everything was really good, so good I was still thinking about it the next day! :)
We were surprised how early it closes during the week, would have an earlier dinner next time so we can spend a little more time there. Definitely want to come back and try more of the menu.

We were celebrating a birthday, just 3 gals. The food was wonderful - refreshingly different! Nothing weird but special touches/additions. We had an appetizer, salad, and a main course. And we loved each of them. The waitress was so attentive and had a wonderful sense of humor. We stayed a very long time and they didn't seem to care! I will go back for sure. We enjoyed a bottle of wine. Next time maybe we will have a cocktail. And they treated my friend to a dessert of her choice as a birthday treat!
