Steakhouse | Evanston, North Suburbs

We arrived a bit before 7 p.m. on a Friday night, just before the crowds. The noise level kept building from there, not annoying, but dynamic. Lots of people enjoying the place. Service was attentive, but slowed as the room filled. Food was quite good, especially branzino and Manhattan cut steak. Cheese plate was a great appetizer, and the wine list is good. Nice desserts, and the coffee is great, served in a small French press. Sadly, the magic ends when they bring the check and ask that you part with a rather large sum. While we dined inside, the patio looked pretty comfortable. It’s on an alleyway, next to a parking lot, but it’s not a busy traffic area. All in all, the Barn is a fine place for a special occasion.

For large groups, this place is super easy to enjoy a nice meal at! There are vegetarian options, I made my bowl with tofu. The prices are a little steep but the food was very good, especially since I could choose what I wanted and how much of it I wanted. Make sure to fill your bowl to the top and get a piece of their bread! It's amazing. Also there's a student discount. More

Our fourth time here, and it's good and getting better. Especially like the chicken lettuce wraps, Manchurian cauliflower, ANY lamb or fish dish. Some dishes are very spicy, but they're happy to adjust for you. We'll be back. Very friendly service. More

Have been to Koi numerous times when in Evanston since food and service has always been good. Many other choices in Evanston, but keep coming back to Koi since we know we will always get a good meal. Both of us got the three course meal with different items and we shared each and all was good. Very busy on Friday night so would recommend reservations which we had and got seated promptly. More

I finished everything on my plate and that doesn’t happen usually because I get bored with the flavor. I can say everything I’ve had was interesting both the flavor and texture which I love. You will not be disappointed in the food or service. Thank you for making us feel so welcomed 😘 More

Italian | Evanston, North Suburbs

The food was good. The service was great. We were confused by the music choice when your restaurant has the name rock in it and your menu items are named after rock stars and you have pictures of rock stars on the wall. I think your restaurant would be more cohesive and original if you played rock music. I would come back. More
