Greeted at the door by a strawberry blond woman who said, "Welcome to Tallgrass and just for future reference, no jeans." I thought a jacket and smart jeans wouldn't be

I've eaten at TallGrass restaurant twice, both times while I was in training at culinary school. I have found it to be one of the most wonderful experiences in life. I ring a bell and wait for an answer with a certain anticipation that soon, I will only have the best of the best. When the door is answered I am led down and up stairs to a small room surrounded with mirrors, nothing like a carnival, but something much more sincere. The server comes to the table and I don't remember anything about that first experience, except of how wonderful the person standing before of me is. You choose how many courses and stare at the menu for a while. Everything sounds good...`can i have one of everything please?` is all you can think. You finally choose what to eat, and order your wine based on the server's opinion. What comes out next is perfect; perfect in every way, shape and form. It remains this way for the next few courses, depending, of course on how many you choose. After all this, the print on the bill seems like someone must have forgotten to put something, anything, on it. I thank the chef, and happily think on my way home, one day i hope to be as great as the people who just served me one of the best meals of my life.

I love the atmosphere here, the waiters could not be friendlier and the food comes pretty fast. It is kind of pricey but well worth it. My favorite part of my dinner was the dessert! I would not go there again without ordering something for dessert.

I'll make this short, because no words can describe the wondrous dining experience you'll experience at Tallgrass.

I was floored by their exceptional level of cuisine..the textures, the aromas, the sauces, the pairings... just brilliant.

The best food in the suburbs... and possibly all of chicago....period.

Pros: Exceptional Food, Decent Service, Romantic Setting

Cons: in an unlikely neighborhood, but this adds to its charm.

Simply Outstanding... It was our first time at this fine establishment, which provided a mouth-watering symphony of flavors for us on Mother's Day. One of us got the four course meal, and the other two the five course meal. They don't serve anything mediocre at this establishment.. everything is either great or extraordinary...a rare find in the restaurant market. Everything we tried was unique and held us captivated for the two radiant hours spent there. Tallgrass instantly became one of my favorite restaurants in the suburbs, along with Courtright's, Salbute (well, they're out of business), Vie, and Sunflower Bistro. Tallgrass is brilliant.

Tallgrass is a diamond in the rough. The innocuous exterior belies the wonderful dining experience hiding inside. The staff was helpful yet unobtrusive, allowing time for conversation and digestion. However, it was the food that took center stage.
With a selection of three courses or more, it was easy to sample different tastes.
My favorite part of the appetizer sampler was an eggshell filled with a creamy delight that both pleased the eye and the palate. I chose pork tenderloin for my main course along with a spinach salad served with pears and walnuts. It was the best. From the dessert sampler, (enough for two) I loved the rum cake, but also enjoyed the chocolate and lace cookies served with coffee.
It was a higher priced restaurant for this neck of the woods, but certainly appropriate for the quality of the dining experience. I can't wait to return.

Tallgrass restaraunt is a must for someone seeking a dining experience out of the ordinary. It is definitely pricey, but well worth it. It is very quiet and intimate, making it a good place for a romantic evening. The waitstaff is courteous and knowledgeable, explaing the extensive menu and answering any questions. The also have an extensive wine list. Be prepared to eat alot when you go, as the meal consists of many courses, each more delicious than the last! Their desserts are to die for! The best thing to do is to get the dessert sampler- you get to try several different things.

Expect to drop some bucks at this hidden-away gem, but in return expect to be thrilled and to return! Tallgrass is in a wonderful old building in downtown Lockport and has a great old country feel.

The food, which has French accent, is superb. There will be a wait before the food comes out, as it is all cooked to order, but this allows for a great evening of conversation, drinking wines, and striking up interesting conversations with the most agreeable staff. I've eaten here 5 times in the past 2 years, and can't say enough good things about the creativity of the chefs, the freshness of the preparations, the dynamite deserts, the wine list (and wine knowledge of the staff), and the ambience.

Editorial from

The simple, refined, historic dining room---nestled into a circa 1895 building---is of another time and place, what with its paneled wood walls, hushed tone and top-tier (yet graciously unstuffy) service. And although Tallgrass has been on…
