I recently took my vegetarian daughter to Flat Top Grill for a late dinner. We enjoyed our meal immensely. Once upon a time, the protein remained on the bar, but I guess they changed the format. You pick your protein prior to going to the bar now. After choosing your protein with the waiter, you are given a bowl with... More

Great concept -- you fill your bowl with grains, veggies, and sauce, tell the server which protein you want, and the food is heated on the grill and delivered to your table. Extremely allergy friendly (clearly identified allergens and had a simple system for notifying the cooks to keep your food away from others if necessary). The food was good... More

The last time that we went to Flat Top Grill we thought that they did a great job, as we were there with a group for a birthday. This time, I was a bit disappointed with Flat Top Grill. The saddest part is that this is one of three Flat Top Grills that are left in the Chicago area. Why... More

Since I became a vegetarian going out to dinner has become more of a challenge. That's what attracted me to Flat Top Grill, large selection of fresh veggies and non-meat options with your choice of garnish, stir fried and served to you. After the hostess seats you, your waitress explains how the place works and your drink order is taken.... More

We went to flat top grill with the kids in the early evening; the place was not very busy which was great when navigating this concept with 2 curious kids...so you choose your protein (chicken/beef/pork/calamari/sausage/whitefish/shrimp or salmon). Then you fill your bowl with your carb (rice, noodles, quinoa) and your choice of a plethora of vegetables. I felt the bowl... More

Kind of dark and noisy but I guess that's to be expected in a college town. food was excellent and it was a nice way to be sure to get what you want.

The only bad thing about eating here is that parking can be a bit "iffy". Make sure that you do park legally, it's like Evanston has zero tolerance for parking violations. But once you enter and you're seated, you can begin to choose what you want. Whether you use a base of rice or noodles, you then add in any... More

Good place to eat in Evanston! You put in what you want grilled and you do the seasoning for the most part so was a satisfying dish, but, the meat was a bit over cooked and too chewy.With a student ID, you get a discount-- I believe 5%. Only street parking is available nearby and it is a hassle so... More

We are very frequent guests in this restaurant. Children 10 and under eat FREE every Monday (I believe with the purchase of adult entree). Make your own stir-fry. Must try the bread (insert a blue stick to your bowl) before placing it on the grill for the cooks to prepare it for you. Fun for young kids (5-12). Extremely friendly... More
