Crisp - Heights Ratings and Reviews
Maybe we're just too old for this spot, but our ears were ringing when we left. We couldn't hear the waiter or the person sitting next to us. It wasn't what we had experienced on our previous visit at all. The pork belly appeteiser wasn't good (had it before and it was awesome) but the waiter took it off the bill and was very nice all around. I think the bottom line is this place is for the younger crowd who don't mind yelling at each other.
Crisp is our go-to place in the Timbergrove/Oak Forest/Heights area. Wide local/craft beer selection, terrific wood-fired pizza, a delicious chicken saltimbocca sandwich and excellent salads including the Organic Orchard (with or without the grilled chicken) with peach vinaigrette. Large area for kids to play and a nice outdoor area that could use a little sunscreen on the west fence at about 6-7pm in the summer. We'll be back time and again and recommend it often, even at the risk of making it too crowded...
poor service, food was lukewarm, had to ask for refills repeatedly for drinks, and all condiments.., salt and pepper were not on the table nothing was addressed as a courtesy, .. we felt we had to ask for way to much to even try to enjoy the meal.
would not go again. server had a chip on her shoulder . didn't want to be there for Sunday brunch. poor dining experience.
Great food, great time, great music. Had the fried appetizer, it was awesome, melting short ribs very yummy. Daughter had pizza which was really good. The Mushroom fondue was a little rich for my tastes, but I don't like rich things. Red wine was server cold which was odd. Too cold, had to warm it up to open up.
Good service and great music. Just what we were looking for.
Our waitress was pretty awful BUT the food was awesome and I have to say the back patio was really cool! I am from out of town but I would definitely come back for pizza or the Wed/Thurs 50% off night. Besides our server the others were super nice and helpful.
Food was part good, part not good...
* Arancini - Excellent, surprisingly good combination with a very odd orange vinaigrette
* Short Ribs - Meat, good; polenta, ok; too much sauce though, and too liquid
* Pizza with potatoes and arugula - Terrible. Despite high quality ingredients (very fresh arugula, good cheese) the crust was awful, the potatoes were undercooked and the pizza was too salty (crust had enough salt but they put coarse salt on top)
My family really enjoyed the food and the service. We started with the *AMAZING* goat cheese appetizer, and my husband and I split the green salad and buffalo chicken pizza. Both were solid choices and I'd order again. My 4 year old shared her spaghetti & meatball with her 9 month old sister, who had a great time! We also had a cheesecake dessert that was solid, but not as amazing as that appetizer. Service was attentive and very accommodating of the small children. Their food came out very quickly (as did the rest of the meal). Worth mentioning the restaurant was rather loud so it's great for kids, unless they are sensitive to the noise.
This was our first visit, picked it up by looking on OpenTable and it was the best. We enjoyed everything we eat. We didn't come for the beer options and wine, and the food did not disappoint. I had the steamed Mussels and they were amazing. We had a pizza which was great as well as my husband burger. Our waitress, Kayla was so friendly and courteous and helped us with dishes and our dessert. We'd ask for her again if we returned. The service from her and the team who helped her was very nice. Can't wait to go back and recommend it. My sister is Gluten Free and I can't wait to bring her to Crisp, so many options. Thank you for an unexpected and wonderful evening.
Very underwhelming in terms of food. Pork belly appetizer overcooked, mussel appetizer also overcooked. Main dish I got the burger, also overcooked, dry, and underseasoned. We also got the short rib dish which was very low on flavor with a runny broth (not reduced down like with typical short rib dishes).
The scene was pretty good though, especially with outdoor seating. Would be great for HH or drinks, but food definitely needed improvement.
