Love the cocktails, wine list, food but they could improve the dessert menu. Not many selections and none appealed to me.

Fantastic food and service. Creative, modern-day (gf, v, etc.) options with so much flavor. The sweet potatoes with maple glaze from the appetizers are very unique. Appetizer portions are big. The entree portions are just the right size. I’ll definitely be going back to try more from the menu. Make reservations as the walk-in wait is long.

Just love the casual, yet classy vibe at the restaurant. Chef Bill Kim has done it again - perfect flavors, perfectly executed, along with a great wait staff and management. Who says that Retail Stores can't complete with stand alone restaurants?

We enjoyed the tea but it was a little pricey—$20 for a glass of champagne?? Maybe more finger sandwiches vs. mashed potatoes & chkn salad. Service was great. Great ambiance. Prob wouldn’t do the tea again but maybe stop by for cofffee/dessert or wine/appetizers.

Restaurant is conveniently located in Oak Brook Mall. I thought that the menu was diverse and offered a lot of fun options- I really enjoyed the different cocktails. The plating was beautiful and the food was good. I felt like the service was a little slow and when we ordered coffee it came out ice cold which was disappointing.

The food is absolutely delicious - I had the Niçoise salad which I found a little pricey at $25 for lunch. My husband had the burger which he loved. Setting and service are wonderful. The featured sparking rose was also fantastic.

The Table at Crate was upscale and a nice ambiance. Very fresh and modern. The foos choices appealed to many. We had a shrimp poke bowl that was keto-friendly. The specialty drink selection was small but had some interesting options.

Had Saturday lunch here with a friend before shopping. Drinks and food were delicious. I am vegan and they had vegan options which is perfect. You would be surprised at how many places cannot accommodate this but they were well prepared with menu items. I wanted to just live there I love all the glassware and dinnerware they have (obviously all from the store) I would definitely dine again.

The prices are a bit high. I visit restaurants in the city all the time but this is Oakbrook and it’s part of the Crate and Barrel store. Prices could come down a few bucks

The spinach artichoke dip is really good and the lemon chicken was sooo yummy! Definitely recommend. I did not like the cookies as a dessert because they tasted like biscuits, almost stale.

The food is fresh, interesting & creatively presented. We enjoyed 2 apps, entrees, desserts & 2 drinks, all for $125 for lunch. So not inexpensive but well worth the treat. My friend has Celiacs & they easily accommodated. We will b back to enjoy the tea service!

Visited for a late lunch and was very pleased to find multiple vegan dishes on the menu. The service was prompt and attentive to the needs of our table. The food was delicious and portions sized to allow several people to share multiple dishes.

I was pleasantly surprised with my meal. I had the Tomato-Basil soup and the Chicken BLT Tartine. The flavors were wonderful! I found myself trying to identify all of the wonderful, hidden flavors I was tasting. The staff were pleasant and the service was good. Chef Kim has a winner with this casual and inviting menu. I truly enjoyed every bite.

Sadly disappointing! Overpriced & nothing special. I had a Quinoa Poke Bowl with Shrimp 🍤 that was fine. My friend had a Banana Split dessert served on Banana Bread that was as hard & dry as a hockey puck. And get this - it was $11.00!! Don’t waste your time.

Been to The Table at Crate 2 times now. In the summer, we sat outside and had small bites. Food was good and the presentation was even better! Of course, because it is Crate and Barrel the glassware and tableware are amazing! This time, met a friend for dinner and sat inside. Absolutely so cozy and nice view of Oakbrook Mall and fountain outside even in the dead of winter. They have a Happy Hour which had a good choice of red and white wine at a good value. The appetizers we shared were small portions but we just ordered a bit more. Not a deal breaker. Definitely recommend for a quiet and cozy place to go to for a night out.

We went for Wine Down Wednesday and got three bites and tastes of wine. It was wonderful! Then we went to our table had a lovely dinner and took home pasteries for later. It was a wonderful weekday date night.

Food was outstanding and fresh. Went for dinner with my girlfriends and everyone found something to try and loved what they ordered. However, it's more like a place to stop by for a nice early dinner after shopping. We were the last people there and left at 9:00. And it was clear they wanted us to leave. Service was OK...not great. Will go back, but probably for lunch.

Our waiter was absolutely fantastic. I think her name was Mia, really a wonderful waiter and great service. She deserves a raise. The food was very healthy, amazing, and the presentation of each dish really made a statement. The ambience of the restaurant is truly breathtaking as it in ties into the crate and barrel store. They have a great drink list, and a wine from New Zealand that no one else sells anywhere else. I had the champagne which was really great, and the best part about it is that they really chill their drinks. It was very nice being able to finish our meal, have a coffee, and walk around the store. What a fun experience. I highly recommend!

Today I took my mother for lunch and we shared everything. It was wonderful! The chicken was plump and juicy and the burger was cooked perfectly. In addition we took treats home from the coffee bar to try because they looked so good.

In celebration of my close friend's 60th birthday, we chose to dine with our mothers at this fabulous cafe. From the moment our stunning hostess, Gabriela, seated us, until our departure nearly three hours later, we were treated to the most delicious, exquisitely staged food and beverage we have ever enjoyed. It would be impossible for me to describe every item in the detail each deserves but I think I can sum up the experience this way...dining at The Table at Crate is a feast for the culinary senses. The beauty of the food, the incomparably unique flavors, the satisfying crunch of the fresh salad ingredients, the scent of every morsel as each approaches one's mouth and the steaming hot warmth of the day's special soup, intersect in a way that leaves the diner wishing the experience would never end! A heartfelt congratulations to Chef Bill Kim on the launch of this outstanding establishment. From the gorgeous interior appointments (everything can be found in the adjoining Crate & Barrel retail area) to the unparalleled table side attending provided by our dining service ambassador, Mathias (our waiter!), I would highly recommend you make it your 2020 New Year's Resolution to dine at this fantastic establishment. Just watching the line cooks, featuring Annamaria Leal and a cast of astutely artistic professionals will be well worth the visit! Enjoy!

The avocado toast was delish with generous amounts of avocado. The waitress wasn’t able answer our questions about the menu very well, so my husband was disappointed with his tiny $14.00 hamburger.
