I walked in to celebrate my anniversary and was told it would be 75 minute wait. If the line was out the door and people hustling I would have considered waiting. However only one couple was standing and waiting, the bar was empty and there were at least 4 to 5 empty tables that I could actually see. I handed... More

Wow! What a discovery we made a couple of years ago. Although located in a strip mall you would never know it inside. Outstanding service with fine french cuisine delivered consistantly. The owners are always on premesis to ensure an excellent dining experience each night. Don't miss Cafe Pyrenees.

We were able to meet long-time friends at this restaurant one evening. We were seated in a quiet room where we enjoyed a wonderful 3-course meal, good wine, attentive service and conversation for as long as we cared to stay. Very much wish there was a Cafe Pyrenees in the southwest suburbs!

Went her for a business function. The steak was perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect for a french themed restaurant. The owner told me to try the "hockey puck" for dessert. It was really tasty!

Met a friend here and had a wonderful dinner. The food was delicious. Especially enjoyed their early bird dinner special that was three wonderful courses at a great price. Service was outstanding. Nice wine selection. A great place for a relaxing dinner, to enjoy fantastic food and service. Highly recommend!

We were given a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant and went on a weeknight. Warmly greeted, sat down and found the atmosphere pleasant but subdued. Reasonable service. Very good special on wine by the glass with a nice pinot noir served. Bread was good but not excellent. Then came their specialty seafood platter: average at best with the scallops... More

although it is in a strip mall, Cafe Pyrenees is a wonderful restaurant, highlighting the foods of southern France and northern Spain. The chef/owner prepares his meals by hand, his wife is hostess, somellier, and wait staff. We were looking for a special experience, to celebrate our daughters graduation from US Navy boot camp, and the reviews of Cafe Pyrenees... More

Cafe Pyrenees is the best restaurant in Libertyville by a long way. It is an excellent place with great service and a changing menu that is fresh. The owners are excellent and personally involved in the front of house and kitchen. Highly recommended.

I have had dinner here on several occasions over the last few years, and my experience here this past week (two nights in a row) has prompted me to review Cafe Pyrenees. The waiters are knowledgeable, courteous, and always attentive without being intrusive. The soups are superb- the French onion, and especially the clam chowder which was so tasty--thanks Nathan...

One of my favorites for a nice dinner out. Whether I am entertaining a good client, taking my wife out to dinner, or thinking about a fine meal around the holidays to impress my Dad... Cafe Pyrenees is on the short list. Great food and a really, really good wine selection. I am partial to the duck quesadilla appetizer and... More
