Nirvana Wine & Grillerie
Easily one of the hidden gems of the northshore. The wine list is beyond "notable" with exceptional values hidden among the great cabs, pinots, red blends and great whites. The food is beyond amazing, and you will never regret a visit!
First time we've been back since the lockdown and Nirvana is still the best! Great food, great wine, great service. Great live music! Thanks to Mike, Patrick, Alan, Rubin, Greg, and Danny for making our anniversary special. It was really good to be back!
The Gem of Vernon Hills, IL
Great time eating outdoors. Fabulous Wine!! You always have great recommendations. Service was great. Food was great. Need mother nature to keep up the temp so we can continue to eat outside.
Started out wonderful but then service was non existent. They did comp us a glass of wine but disappointing! No communication. Wine very good food ok
I love their creative menu and, as one who dines here regularly, appreciate how consistently superb they prepare every dish. Their wine list is probably the best on the north shore! Danny and his staff treat guests like family always ensuring a fabulous experience. Go on the weekend and enjoy the talented guitar player who covers all the songs we know and love. This is a hidden gem that shouldn’t be missed!
We will definitely be back! With multiple friends!
Love this place. Delicious, fresh inventive food with joyful service. And great wine! One of our favorite local spots.
Fantastic menu and wine list. One of the best Old Fashioned's around. Top notch wine club too!
Delicious food, great service, good selection of wine
Another wonderful meal at this fabulous restaurant! The food, service, ambiance and entertainment is terrific! We highly recommend this restaurant. We’re already looking forward to our next visit!
Excellent wine & food selection. Outdoor dining, music, spacious seating. Service Superb. Greg was quite a good host.
good food . only hiccup was ordered French press coffee and they made it like tea, so weak, not enough coffee. other than that will gladly come back
Nice patio area set up and service was excellent.
Wonderful evening for dining outside, and the outdoor space was well laid out - no Covid issues from our perspective. Food and wine were, of course, great as always. We haven't been able to drop in as frequently as we did pre-shutdown; it was nice to have a meal there again!
Loved the shrimp and scallops special and the flatbreads.
Had a spectacular evening with Danny and team. They were very accommodating and provided my mom with soft food for her dental issues, me with my keto diet, my dog with extras from my mom, and a tasty meal for my husband. Every bite was flavorful. Our waiter even took the time to teach my husband how to make a proper lemon twist for his cocktail. 4 star outdoor dining with relaxing live music. Followed all COVID protocols. Could not have a better experience during this crazy pandemic.
Nirvana never disappoints! Always consistently impeccable service, food and wine! Danny and his staff are fantastic!! Will be back again and again.
Very nice experience. It was our first time at Nirvana.
The food was very good. Wine was excellent.
The service was outstanding.
Had a great catch up with a friend at Nirvana. We got to sit outside and were socially distance from other tables. Also had live music! Loved it!
One of our favorite local places. Great food, excellent wine at good prices. Hidden gem.
The absolute best spot in Vernon Hills! After moving to the suburbs from downtown Chicago we struggled to find restaurants of the same caliber! This place takes you to another place. Great wine and the ambiance with the music is perfect. Will be back very often !
Fabulous dinner outside. Food was terrific and service was wonderful and of course the wine was spectacular.
As usual the service and dining was excellent.
The best kept secret in the suburbs for elegant dining!
One of our favorites.
Great wine and amazing service! Reserve a seat at the bar, the bartenders are very friendly as are the other regulars!
There is a lot I like about Nirvana. It's comfortable, good menu and tasty food plus live music. However, this visit was off - the waiter inattentive and slow, the food pricey for what we got and the bill incorrect(it was later fixed). It was $4 off all wine by the glass but that was not reflected on the bill until we pointed it out plus they charged us for a higher priced mixed drink than ordered. The first drink order was spilled on the way to the table so it was 1/2 full. We had to remind them several times about that and it was replaced finally. While the food was tasty, the salads use to come with a roll which they no longer do.
Music was quite bad
Walked in to live music which was a nice surprise! Sat right in front of musician and wasn't too loud to talk and hear the server. The staff was very inviting and checked in on us at the right times and kept the table well. Food was delicious and served at the proper time. As always the wine at Nirvana never ceases to impress.
Nirvana is one of our favor restaurants! We had excellent service from Ruben. Danny, the manager, is always first-rate. The stuffed mushrooms special was amazing. The live music made for an extra special night!!! We’ll be back again soon!!!
We had a reservation, and when we first arrived they were a little snarky about giving us a table we wanted. We asked for one away from the front door and there were several open. But they said we were assigned a specific table and it couldn’t be changed. So we sat right by the front door on a cold night. However, it wasn’t too bad after all. We enjoyed the food and wine very much. A very nice cheese and charcuterie plate. Not cheap but what we expected. And our server was good. So except for our initial negative impression we enjoyed it.
Great food paired with excellent wine in a relaxing atmosphere. I recommend this restaurant!
Love this place!! Food is always amazing, service is wonderful
The charcuterie was amazing. The wine selection is superb and we loved the desserts.
The food and service was terrific!
the menu items were plentiful but execution was lacking. The flatbread was not seasoned properly, had to get extra salt. The wine selection was great but overpriced. Service was good there was a live performer who was great.
Always a great evening,..,Mike takes good care of us!
Need to add gluten free pasta or rice noodles/pasta to your menu...
As always, myself and my staff were looking forward to a wonderful evening getting together for our after-holiday party. Nirvana did not disappoint! It was our third year coming together here, and I am certain we will be back again! Everything was spot on!
Always love it here! Great to hang out, have awesome food, wine and listen to some mellow tunes.
Mike is the best ! His title may be server, but really he is the host/concierge/local tour guide/sommelier who makes a nice place seem dynamic and extra fun!! Food was very good - just perfectly seasoned, excellent quality ingredients. We will definitely go again.
