Unless you've been to Tallgrass in Lockport, you aren't going to find too many upscale, fine dining restaurants in the Chicago suburbs. Palm Court in Arlington Heights doesn't qualify in the fine dining category but it doesn't have to. Angelo and John Sellis, a couple of Greek immigrants to found a home in Arlington Heights, have been satisfying hungry customers for more than 30 years. That's a record that bettors at nearly Arlington race track would envy. According to Tripadvisor, it is the No. 1 restaurant in Arlington Heights, which is something to cheer about. Its crisp Long Island duckling has won awards. There are three dining rooms, a bar and a cocktail lounge. And live entertainment Monday through Saturday. All in all, it's a big-time venue. Critics rave about the luncheon menu, which includes shrimp cocktail, oysters Rockefeller, escargot, smoked salmon and baked French onion soup for starters, roast turkey and Swiss, half-pound hamburger and grilled chicken for sandwiches and fried shrimp, whitefish, tilapia, Atlantic salmon, Dover sole, breast of chicken piccata, pasta primavera and filet mignon for entrees. But we came for dinner. Like lunch, the dinner menu is filled with delicious and filling options. I ordered shrimp cocktail and Atlantic salmon. My wife opted for escargot and veal Scallopini. For dessert, we each had a slice of key lime pie, which was as good or better than any we've had in Florida. By the way, how often do you find Dover sole or veal Oscar or oysters Rockefeller or New Zealand baby rack of lamb on anyone's menu, even a downtown Chicago restaurant? On top of that, the service and atmosphere also were first-rate, making for a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience.

A established restaurant in Arlington Heights, Il., where the food, staff and atmosphere are the best. The wait staff is the most knowledgeable about the menu items of any staff you will ever meet. Attentive and smart, excellent personalities combined with the finest food, equals a top notch dining experience. If in the area or not, either way give it a try, you will be very happy with the result.

Very nice lunch menu, the food was cooked perfectly and generous portions. This restaurant also had great service for a business lunch. I was able to get in and out in an hour.

This is not fine dining, but it's about as fine as you find around here. The service is great. I recommend our server, Eva...she made some good recommendations. We all loved our food, from my daughter's half pound hamburger, to my chicken piccata, and my husband's chicken Florentine. The soups and salads are good (but not particularly remarkable).Oh, and the key lime pie is the BEST I ever had--even better then what you get in Key West. It's a nice place to go for an occasion. Not too pricey, either.

One of the best supper clubs in the northern suburbs. We both enjoyed a lovely pinot grigio that was perfectly chilled along with a basket of freshly baked rolls. Salads were crisp and dressings made from scratch and served on the side. The blue cheese dressing is "OMG". Our entrees were beautifully plated and served with fresh asparagus spears, broccoli and cauliflower. The server, Tyler was friendly and very attentive. Palm Court never disappoints and seems to get better with age, like a fine wine.
