The new (?) owners have kept up the quality although the wine list has been shrunk down dramatically (No access of the wine store next door).

Service is excellent and attentive, better than what you typically get in the burbs. Pacing is very good and you usually do not wait between courses.

Menu selection is excellent with some interesting game entrees. Salads are excellent and deserts are also wonderful. My only complaint is that I would like to see a bit more rotation in the overall menu. But the preperation, plating and portions are excellent and a good value.

Check out sundays where they have a jazz band and their wine maker dinners.

A con I used to have was the entry way used to blast cold air into the restaurant during the winter, that has been fixed.

Pros: menu, parking, ambience

Cons: noise, smoking

This is one of the most consistently excellent places in Glen Ellyn. The menu is diverse, interesting and takes risks to be exceptional; the wine list is extensive and reasonably priced; and the ambience is city-like and sophisticated. The staff works hard to create an enjoyable experience, and if you have a problem, the owners are accesible to listen and resolve. It's a wonderful special-occasion place that has impressed my out -of towner guests.

Pros: diverse menu, wine list, pro staff

Cons: stuck in the suburbs

Time and again, I have found Cab's to be a wonderfully delightful experience. Upon entering, one is struck at once with both the genuine friendliness of the staff and the chic, modern decor. One is quickly enveloped in the festive mood, where laughter and cheery conversation flow freely over tasty appetizers, main courses and wines. The ecclectic menu is a delight to ones tastebuds, often surprising with an astute justapositioning of flavors to great effect. Clearly, Chef Luis Ayllon is one of Chicagoland's best kept secrets!

Pros: Great food, Excellent Winelist, Friendly atmosphere

.

The wine list has a terribly small upcharge from the wine store next door. Incredible selection (it's more of a book than a list) at great prices.

Menu is good, with recent changes to the dessert menu really making it more well rounded. Comfortable for individuals to dine at the bar and space upstairs for larger groups. Groups of up to 8 can be seated easily in the main dining area.

Pros: Wine Value, Extensive Wine List

What an entirely remarkable dining experience. Don't miss this one, you'll want to come back! This is one of those "A-List" restaurants that we often think of first when deciding where to eat.

My wife and I have been frequenting Cab's for four years or so, and it is always my choice for great wine selection, excellent meal and always made to feel special.

Pros: Excellent Wine Select, Easy Parking, Welcoming

Cons: Wish I lived closer

Cab's has some of the best food that I have ever had. Chef Luis has mastered fish and how to prepare it. His sauces are outstanding, the flavors that he incorporates together are amazing. The wine list is nothing to sneeze at, it is over 14 pages long, with over 4 pages dedicated to just Cabernet Sauvignons. They have over 25 different wines by the glass too. If you like beer, this place has a selection of micro beers that is not found very often, even in bars.

Once inside this charming bistro, patrons are welcomed with a seasonal, inviting enough menu that may include a starter of steamed mussels in tomato-saffron broth or escargots encased in puff pastry. Among main courses, get cozy with…
