I had heard about this place for years and when we finally got the chance to eat here I was disappointed. It was very crowded on a Sat night ( expected) but the seating is so tight and close ( unexpected ) you can barely move and must hear all of the conversations of the tables next to you. Food...

Little Zagreb is a wonderful place to enjoy the best steaks you'll have outside upscale metropolitan restaurants. The charm of this place is the unquestioned quality of their beef and lamb along with a cozy, unpretentious atmosphere. Yes, the prices are a bit steep but not compared to other places with similar cuts of meat and preparation. I would have... More

We went with a group of 6 adults during the week for dinner. The meatballs were amazing, definitely have a kick, and the sauce you just want to drink it up! Actually, our waitress Laura recommended the sauce with the steak and a couple people tried it and said it was good. Everyone got steaks and they were cooked to... More

Everything is ala carte here, so watch your pennies. The steaks are expensive but they're also the best in town. I highly recommend Little Zagreb and I've been dining here for 30 years.

My wife and I had dinner at Janko's during a nostalgic return to see the IU campus again. Janko's is a steakhouse with a bistro atmosphere. The food was quite good. My wife raved about the stuffed pepper and raved about the East European paprika based sauce. I had the pork chop which was quite good though not great. The... More

Well finally got to Janko's, a restaurant I had always heard good things about. Wonderful atmosphere, a great place for a table of two or a party of twenty. The steaks are amazing! They are cooked to your liking, great salads and sides. This place is very pricey.

From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were rushed. We had a 5:30 reservation but didn't get seated until 6. Our server didn't give us a chance to finish our food....our shrimp cocktail and bacon wrapped dates were swiped before we even had a chance to finish. Ordered a ribeye and filet mignon medium rare-the ribeye was fine... More

Wonderful steak for high prices but the red checked table clothes, tubs of lettuce in plain view, loud chatter, and wait staff moving you on make it a place we will not return to. I gave it 3 stars as the steaks were superb. It is a Bloomington must do but once was enough.

Haven't been in a few years, was anxious to return, as I love steak!! Ordered prime rib special, full of fat & inedible tissue. My child picked up the last shrimp of the shrimp cocktail, had it in her hand, turned to speak with a friend, waitress grabbed the dish without asking if she was done. $110 for two (... More

I'm not easy to impress and this was absolutely fantastic. Great service, even better food. I had the gypsy kabob with some ribs as an appetizer and both were the best I've EVER had. 100% recommend.
