The food was ok, but the service was very disappointing and unfriendly. Had to also wait much more than usual time to get the bill and get out of there. I have never given less than 20% tip and continue to receive bad service. Unfortunat...ely, my wife likes the food otherwise i would never step in this restaurant.More

Years ago I used to eat at Rezas near downtown Chicago. Food was always fresh and delicious. I was super excited to try the restaurant in Oakbrook. Not sure what happened but this is not anything like the restaurant I remembered. We were there on...Sunday so all they had was the buffet. We decided to give it a try. Big mistake. None of the food was labeled so you had to guess at what you were eating, several of the chafing dishes had missing handles, plates did not look clean and worst of all the food was barely warm. Restrooms had not been cleaned from the night before and at least one stall was missing toilet paper. Once they seat you, you will never see a human again. Dirty dishes weren’t bussed, and nobody refilled our water. I am usually a generous tipper but did not see our waiter until we went to leave. So...no service no tip. This restaurant is on the first floor and their windows were dirty. Whoever manages this place quit giving a darn years ago. It is a shame cause they really used to be a star in Chicago. I am surprised the health department lets them stay open.More

I came here for dinner with my father. The entrance is run down and ugly, we should have left after the first impression. The young lady who served us was friendly but very unprofessional. She said the wine list is outdated and should have been...thrown out. The food was very average, the baklava was the worst I ever had. All in all a run down restaurant with zero ambition...More

Heard a lot about this restaurant so last Sunday finally went there to try their Sunday brunch buffet. It was more like a lunch buffet. First thing that was a turn off was dirty plates and cutlery. Food is not worth the amount we paid....Overall bad experience and would not recommend.More

Went to Reza's in Oakbrook for my daughter-in-laws birthday. We checked out their web site and found out they had a Saturday buffet. They touted Mediterranean foods and an array of regular breakfast foods including shrimp and a glass of champagne. They said the Sunday...buffet was so popular they were repeating it on Saturdays. We'll, we arrived with my Son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. When asked for our drinks, we said we would like their champagne. They said that was no longer option and they were sorry their web site had not been updated. We asked for milk for the children, oh they don't serve milk. We want to the buffet stations, Mediterranean food was blah and no regular breakfast foods or shrimp. We were told they were sorry but their web site had not been updated. I wanted to leave immediately, unfortunately my daughter-in-law is way too sweet and didn't want to offend them. Anyway, the kids had about two bites of something. My husband the same as the kids and I opted for some salad. My Son and Daughter-in-law ate a little, but they weren't impressed by any of the items. Such a waste of money and all because of their false advertising. If you are smart you will steer clear of this restaurantMore

Simple touches like grilling vegetables to a perfect tender crisp or homemade flatbread make this a favorite repeat spot. The vegetarian platter is an economical way to sample 5 selections at a time. Hummus is a common item, but nicely done. Shami is falafel with...an exquisite pomegranate sauce. Alternatively, the weekday brunch includes flavorful beef, lamb and chicken, grilled vegetables, lentil soup, herbed rice and simple desserts. Sunday brunch is the full spread including fish selections. Compatible drinks include wine and coffee (American or Turkish style.) Prices are moderate and service is attentive. Atmosphere is comfortable, quiet and sometimes with appropriate Middle Eastern background music.More

My first time here and was surprised it was not busy for the lunch time buffet. Joined two other friends for the lunch buffet. It is a bit confusing on where to park, but I read the signs that directed me to the parking area....Wait staff was friendly and attentive. They had plenty of choices to pick from on the buffet tables and I did think the choices I made were tasty being the first time I have eaten here, I wasn't disappointed stepping out of my comfort zone.More

I know it just snowed....but by 1pm I figured a plow may come through. Parking is far from the front door. They do offer Valet. The food was not marked. I had to do 3 laps just to get a general idea of what the...basics we're. Still, there we're things I wanted to try...but had no idea what they were. I didn't want to be wasteful, so I passed. There were some good things here...but I couldn't tell you what they were. The thing that bugged me the most is when. I walked in...I just stood there for 3 minutes (which feels like forever) without anyone even acknowledging me. I could understand that is there was nobody there. But there were three people just standing around, one on their phone. Food, a solid 3 for a buffet...everything else was just not great.More

We came here on a Wednesday evening to celebrate a birthday. The server was prompt in taking our order. The vegetarian platter did not come with any bread for the hummus. The server never asked if we wanted beverages. When he brought our food I...asked for a beer for my husband. They were all out of alcohol. After we got our food, they didn’t check on us again. It’s not the cleanest restaurant. There was salt spilled on the windowsill. It wasn’t busy at all, so they should have noticed things like that. The flavor of the food was not good at all. It’s definitely not worth it to come here.More

Nothing out of a standard Persian restaurant. Food was ok but nothing out of common. I won't get back.
