although the food and service were fine, this interior is in need of updating, also you can sit at the bar and they NEVER buy you a drink

We finally had a chance to use our gift certificates. Dinner was awesome. Ordered filet mignon and seafood platter. It was fantastic! Place fills up fast! A glioma olio a must as well along with drinks.

Dined at Syl's last night with a group 8. Our waitress could not have been nicer giving us plenty of time to enjoy cocktails and conversation before ordering our meal. She even gave us separate checks for each couple even though it was the busy holiday season. The pork chops were really large and perfectly prepared, the ladies 8 oz... More

I attended a recent party at Syl's and it was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Although externally it appears to be an older building, the inside reminds you of a classy Chicago restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. You can hardly receive such great service anymore. If you are seeking a relaxing, elegant dining atmosphere outside... More

Was there with my family for Thanksgiving dinner buffet. It was horrible. The worst dinner for Thanksgiving I have ever had. Everything I ate was terrible and the list is long. We will give one more try just for a steak dinner. Depending on how that goes depends on whether we will EVER go back there for a meal.

My girlfriend gave me a surprise birthday party which included dinning at this establishment. The wine was excellent and very reasonable by the bottle. Prime Rib was chewy and shrimp was excellent.

I am visiting my parents for a few days and we went to Syl's. They are frequent customers, back to when we were kids and went out for a special night. Ryan was our server and he amazed me. Knew my parents drinks, how they liked their food and was very attentive and kind. My parents split the filet and... More

We went for my Mom's birthday. My daughter asked for vegetables instead of potatoes. She asked for asparagus. No they had broccoli, carrots, cauliflower. She asked if she could just have the broccoli and was told rudely I said its all three. The vegetables are frozen and the double baked potatoes are not real I do believe. To pay $20.00... More
