May St. Cafe
Posted by Anonymous on 04/27/2013
Don't know where the other reviewers ate but I love May Street. Guac is great as are the margarita drinks. Pork is terrific. Yup it's small and it is pricier than other neighborhood places in Pilsen but I think it's well worth it. Nice wines and the flan is to die for.

The place is small, staff is good, food was not good beans looked like they came out a can, guacamole not tasty, our main course had little portions and charged double the amount you can get elsewhere...if you go there get ready to be flabbergasted with bill and dissatisfied with the food and don't get me started on the drinks ridiculous.

Food: Wasn't bad, but wasn't the 4 star quality it was hyped up to be. Atmosphere: Cramped and our large party was seated at separate tables. Service: Waitstaff was pleasant, but not overly attentive. Value: Some menu items were overpriced and we discovered hidden charges on the bill. We were billed $20 for everyone who did not order an entree (They ate appetizers and soup & salad) and $20 for a few guests who did not show for the reservation (two thirds of the reserved party was present). These addtional charges were not disclosed at any time prior to or during the meal. Owner Mario was not accomodating when we disputed these hidden fees.

I went to the May St. Cafe after seeing excellent reviews on Check Please. Although we didn't have reservations at 5:30 on a Saturday we were seated albeit with a little hesitation. The waitress was friendly and informative. However, the food was expensive and not worth the price. For instance, we had the Lechon and it was nearly twenty dollars for a plate of food that I could have purchased in a restaurant in Humboldt Park for half the price and would have tasted a lot better. The pear brie quesadillas were really good but I can't really go back to a restaurant based on one delicious appetizer. Finally, although the restaurant is located in Pilsen, not one person in the restaurant looked like they lived in the neighborhood. They were mostly middle to upper class individuals who appeared to have little knowledge about good Latino cuisine.
