Make Room For Truman
we drove out there only to find that the restaurant closed but did not bother to call and let us know.
This restaurant is permanently closed .
We arrived for our reservation and found a handwritten letter on the door saying that they closed yesterday due to a bankruptcy estate filing. I would have appreciated a notification to reservation holders. We loved MRFT and have been there many times. We are very sad to see it go and we feel sorry for the excellent staff.
Truman is great for a quick bite or a nice meal. Food and service are excellent. I really like the menu choices, and the unique variety they serve.
Came here on a recommendation from son and daughter in law. Also got negative from friends. Well I don't know what my friends ate...they're very picky. But the food was very good and reasonably priced. I had Kansas city steak, wife had filet. Service a bit slow, and it's noisy, but I'll be back...
We went with 3 other couples. We found the food to be good but a little pricey for what you got. The service was excellent.
Was super busy. Server was nice, but probably had too many tables. Should expand appetizer list. Food was ok. This restaurant would not make it downtown, but not many restaurants in the Park Ridge or Edison Park area, so probably will stay open. If you don't mind driving about 15 minutes away, go to BarTucci on Harlem/Belmont--it is downtown worthy and great food.
Unique take on lunch fare. Had the carnivore grilled cheese and tortilla soup. Delicious food.
Our friendly and efficient waitress was a loud talker. I kinda dreaded her coming to the table. It was almost like a comedy routine. She was trying hard but needs to tone it down.
And she really stumbled when I asked if I could substitute something for the pork rinds that came with my dish (They were bad it turns out... tasteless) .
But everything else was real good (Chicken, ribs, fish, crab cakes, carrot cake and "The Truman". But if you like pork rinds don't get excited about these.
The place is very well run which itself adds to a nice dining experience.
Had to wait a bit longer than we expected to be seated, especially with a reservation. Also super disappointed they no longer have the complimentary pickled veggies they use to put on the tables. The pickled veggies were my favorite part.
Love the artichoke dip, and I had a yummy short rib burger with tots.
Kudos to our server Kyle who took superb care of our party.
Service was exceptional. Great concept! Food was delicious! The pork chop and mustard sauce were outstanding. White Sangria hit the spot! Will definitely be back to try more of the menu items!
Great food and service!! I would recommend MRFT again and again!!
The waitstaff was very nice and attentive. The food was OK, but expensive. I did not feel enough kid friendly food selections. Pretty disappointing.
Waitress was great, tots were superb, the brisket burger was a bit over but still perfectly tender - and that seasoning though
Great location and pleasant setting. The food was very good but the temperature of the food could have been hotter. Our server was very nice and helpful. The signature dessert was fun. For the most part we were able to hear our dinner companions ok. There was a guy at the next table that for some reason got very loud and animated for a while, must have been a good story🤷♀️. Looks like they would have great outdoor seating in the summer. MRFT is just halfway between our suburban home and our daughter in Chicago and is very near the train station so we will be back.
Our server was pleasant one minute, impatient the next. The food was generally good, but uneven.
Great ambiance, even greater food, and the service was on point. Try the smoked old fashioned, AWESOME!
I would go back to make room for Truman. The food and drinks were excellent. The service was very good.
Pre Christmas dinner. 3 out of 4 dinners were good. 1 meal was unacceptable & brought to attention of management. They offered to redo meal or a free dessert. No offer was taken but would not order same entree again! On whole nice restaurant w good food and service.
Food was great,server very friendly and nice!We’ll come back again for sure!
Probably the best Houlihans experience I’ve had
We had a large group for dinner and on the whole it was good. I always felt very rushed by the service, like they v wanted to feed you and get you out quickly. I also ordered salmon, med to rare, it came very well done and dry. It seemed our waiter didn’t ‘hear’ or want to acknowledge special requests. My drink order was all wrong too. App orders were very small. The restaurant was just OK nothing I was very impressed with.
Outstanding Thanksgiving dinner.
Fantastic food at reasonable prices and wonderful servers.
Went on Thanksgiving Day. Great food, wonderful server, Erica, will go back soon.
Our local go to place for dinner. We've been here half a dozen times and have come away satisfied every time. Both the food and service have been very good and we enjoy the layout and overall atmosphere of Truman's. Would gladly recommend if you happen to be in the Park Ridge area.
Great place to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. Awesome food and signature cocktails.
We visited MRFT for our Thanksgiving meal. We were greeted immediately, seated promptly, and our server came right over. We started with a decanter of shared cocktails and a starter. The prix fixe meal was full of great choices, and abundant servings. We had a second round of cocktails, each choosing a different one, and they were all fabulous. I had the Park Ridge Tea and it was just perfection. The service was just right, as has been our previous experience there. Our server, whose name I can’t recall, was attentive and engaging, but not intrusive. She was quick to fill water glasses and anticipate needs, but also left us alone to engage in our conversation. All in all, a great experience. We will be back.
We went for Thanksgiving dinner but this was our second time dining at this restaurant. Staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The pace of the three course meal was great - not rushed and allowed us to relax for the holiday. The meal was pretty good. My son enjoyed his prime rib! Stuffing was dry and we missed having some sort of bread or roll like we would at a typical Thanksgiving meal. Value was good compared to most other restaurants for Thanksgiving. We would do the holiday again here!
Service was excellent. Food was excellent. I recommend trying the smoked Old Fashioned and, obviously, the Truman as well. We will definitely be coming back!
This was such an amazing dining experience! This was my first time there. I was meeting with my interns for my non profit, Empowering People with Invisible Chronic Illness-The EPIC Foundation. My interns are high school students and I wanted them to have a wonderful time during our meeting. I accomplished my goal and more. The food was delish! My daughter took my leftovers. Lol The ambience was so fresh and fun! The manager came to speak with me personally. Everything, from the front host, to our last desert was perfect! Mark, our server, was so impressive! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Dr. Karen
Nice place to meet up for drinks and catch up with friends. I only tried the French dip the dip was a bit salty but otherwise good. Service was good.
The service the atmosphere the good all were fantastic!
Went with friends after a show in Rosemont. They didn’t know how to make a Negroni. My water glass had old food stuck inside, wine glass had lipstick from former customer. Food was just ok.
Everything was really good. Nice menu, service and food.
One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. Service excellent, and food was creative, innovative and delicious! Amazingly good
My career is in foodservice marketing, and Make Room for Truman was recommended to one of my chef clients as a dining option during his long layover at O'Hare heading home. More important than my own opinion, my chef was very pleased--which is saying a lot. We ordered more than two people usually do, which is our wont when we get together, as we both love to taste. The food is excellent. Friendly and competent service, nice ambience for chatting across the table on a weeknight. I hope to visit this restaurant again soon--perhaps with another chef client who hasn't yet enjoyed this experience.
We ended up with 14 people for dinner, had to make several changes to the numbers and the restaurant was very accommodating. Service was very good, food was excellent, would definitely try again next time in the area.
