Had a wonderful meal as always. The Escargots "en Barquette" was delicious as was the stuffed pear with gorgonzola, mixed Greens, honey roasted walnuts and walnut vinaigrette. The "Veal Praga" - strips of veal sauteed with shallots, forest mushrooms cognac flambee with spatzle, red cabbage is one of the best dishes on the menu. BTW, the wild mushroom soup is... More

We had dinner at Praga this evening with another couple. Celebrating birthdays of our husbands. The food was excellent. Our party had the onion soup, lobster bisque, pear stuffed with Gorgonzola salad, and roasted beet salad for first courses. Everything was very fresh and beautifully arranged. For main courses two of our party had the beef stroganoff ( these were... More

Downtown Lombard - who would have thought? Many years ago, I lived in Lombard, but when asked, I said I couldn't remember a downtown. This is a nice little find, and if I was still close we would be frequent customers. Food: very good, try the short rib/butternut squash ravioli. The wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable and responsive. The decor... More

This has become the favorite of my Wife and I . It is a delight to eat alfresco here in the summer. The menu is varied and the prices reasonable. I have beef stroganoff and sea bass and it was excellent. My wife enjoyed the meddelians and recently the stuffed chicken breast. The tomato and mozzrala with greens is fresh... More

Service was slow despite the lack of customers in the place, but friendly. The food was meh. I had the pork tenderloin with gnocchi. The gnocchi was fine, but the pork was not flavorful. The sauce served with it was too salty for my tastes. My wife got the beef tips with ravioli. While she liked the sauce very much,... More

Owners Pavel and Martina treat their customers like guests in their home. Personal attention, great service, and superlative food will make your meal outstanding. Veal Praga is a specialty, comfort food made into haute cuisine. The fish is always fresh, and while I am not a fish-lover, this is the one place I can order it and it is always... More

The best wine for the $. Best food for the $. Best venue for the $. Best device for the $. My wife and I have been to every establishment in DuPage Cty. Nothing offers ALL of what Praga offers. Right on a main thoroughfare, but you still hear the music over the cars. Backs to a train track. Never... More

My wife's favorite restaurant. Actually reminds us of restaurants in Europe. Great Bar and Patio. Besides an occasional stop there, We go every year for their Mothers Day Fixed Price Lunch/Dinner - EXCEPTIONAL. They have Martini specials every Thursday. Great freshly prepared food!

great bar attached to restaurant for meeting someone and just having a cocktail and talking. from there it is easy to have dinner and sit on patio or in restaurant. large menu and range of cocktails makes it easy for everyone to find something they like. Just a really nice place to enjoy a nice night, date or get together.
