We found Grille 43 online when my wife noticed the Salmon listed for dinner. We checked them out over a long weekend and although a bit pricey for the area the food (two dinners w/ deserts = around $100) was totally worth it. My wife...More

Great spot for...More

Both my chicken mole and spouses flatbread were dry. Charging $24 for the chicken and $8.50 for a bottled beer seems excessive for Lake Bluff. Wait staff was friendly and the place seemed fresh and clean.

A few friends and I went to Grille 43 for dinner, and while the vibe was somewhat upscale, the food was a disappointment. We had a pretty large group, so we tried out a lot of different options. The calamari appetizer was probably the best...More
