Central Illinois's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
Spectacular! Recommend for special occasions Threw a surprise 30th for a dear friend. Laurie, the GM/owner was superb. She arranged the best table in the house for us. Invited us to arrive early to decorate & get ready. And, she continued to check in on our table throughout the evening. Waitstaff excellent & attentive. Five stars for service. They couldn't have been more accomodating. We lacked for nothing ALL night. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Indigo is a great place for an intimate dining experience. It's very easy to sit and converse with your companion(s). The food is always very tasteful and presentation very appealing. The first glass of wine I ordered did not taste right and I could tell the bottle had been open a little too long (the bouquet and taste were just off). They opened a new bottle for me--which I truly appreciated! MoreOpenTable Diner -
I had requested a window seat for myself and my husband and our two friends for our 40th birthday celebration. The restaurant was elegant. The view of the city was awesome. The food was delicious and the waiter was on point from beginning to end. He was very attentive. The whole experience was worth the money. MoreOpenTable Diner -
