Suzette's Honored with Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence 2017
Our list includes 188 wine selections
Having an all-French wine list made us a little nervous that the Wine Spectator Magazine would even consider our small French Bistro in a little town in the middle of the country. But with 188 selections and over 800 bottles in our cellar, we caught their eye, and we made their list. The goal of our cellar has always been to have a broad selection of wines from all regions of France. Moderately priced bottles and boutique vineyards have been our focus. And, of course, we choose wines that complement our food.
Judy performed in the London House Trio, back when jazz was hot in Chicago, and that was the place to be. Her crowd-pleasing presence will be accompanied by the rich tones of Greg Fishman on saxophone and flute. Come out and enjoy incredible renditions of popular songs like La Vie en Rose, It Had to Be You and a long list of other favorites!

Suzette's, Winner, 2017 OpenTable Diners’ Choice Award
OpenTable Diners’ Choice winners are selected
according to real feedback from diners
who booked through OpenTable. After their meal,
they are asked to take a moment and review
the restaurant at which they dined.
Recent OpenTable diners commented:
A wonderful place to catch up with a friend over lunch. The beef bourguignon crepes are to die for, as is the Bananas foster crepe dessert. And a glass of Bordeaux wine is just the right accompaniment.
A perfect romantic evening or a great afternoon tea.
Everything was great. We will be back|| The ambiance, the food , the service was exceptional. The western suburbs really needed a French restaurant like this.
We had a lovely evening at Suzette's. The service was very gracious and the wine steward was very helpful without being intrusive. My friend had the delicious salmon, and the lamb ragout that I ordered was mouthwatering. It was one of the most delectable meals I have had in a long time, and we eat out regularly. The chocolate mousse cake was also terrific but we could only eat a bite because our entrees had been so filling. The staff is warm and welcoming, too. Another great meal at this local gem!
