Cafe Pyrenees is tucked inside the Adler Square Shopping Plaza in Libertyville, IL. Once you step inside you're treated to warm color tones, greenery, a myriad of wine bottles, hearty brick features, and fresh smells of the featured dishes. Customers rave about the mouth watering dessert delight Chocolate Feuilletine, A.k.a. “The Hockey Puck” which is a crispy praline topped with dark chocolate mousse and then covered with dark chocolate ganache. If you aren't ready to start your meal with a dessert customers suggest to begin with a simple order of Escargot drenched in herbed butter or give the Duck Quesadilla a try with it's blended flavors of melted cheese, duck confit and a homemade cherry mango chutney. Some of the traditional entree staples you will find are Steak Frites, Beef Bourguignon, Seafood Ravioli filled with shrimp, scallops, crab meat and lobster sauce, Chicken Paillarde and Sauteed Calves Liver. Weekly drink specials Wild Wine Wednesday, 1/2 price Martini Fridays!

Great Valentine's night! My wife and I enjoyed the whole experience. Food was delicious (lamb shank) and the mushroom with brie app was amazing. Service was fantastic.

We have been to Cafe Pyrenees a number of times over the years and this was one of our best meals. Great service (thank you Nathan), great drinks, great Caesar and French Onion soup, and great entrees. No room for dessert. We will be back soon.

Cafe Pyrenees is a tried and true destination for dinner. We have been eating at this restaurant beginning with their Vernon Hills location and then moving to their Libertyville location. It is authentic and delicious French food served by staff who are very well informed. The wine selection is excellent!

Ambiance and food was wonderful. The service was initially good but once the restaurant got busy, the service became sparse. Would go again with that in mind.

We used to love this place. The menu has changed from being a french bistro type of restaurant to a more international fare. The food was good. I took over an hour to get our entrees. The $28 Beef Bourguignon is overpriced. With the beef you a dollop of mashed potatoes and three miniature carrots (the kind they sell in plastic bags in the grocery store). You can't peel and cut your own carrots? I don't think we will return.

This was not a good visit for me and three guests. Service was just OK and we were frustrated by the waiter who mumbled and was difficult to understand. We started with a charcuterie plate and one of the cheeses had a hair on it. The waiter came back with obviously the same platter saying it was a "fiber". Ugh. House salads were great. My wife's Risotto was OK. My snapper special was overcooked. The free range chicken was overcooked and there was another "fiber" in it which we didn't report. A salmon dish was good. My wife enjoyed her Creme Brulee. I found the Banana Bread Pudding oddly plated, but the taste was good. It looked a lot more like a pound cake. We have dined here three times and this restaurant appears to be going downhill. We were greatly disappointed since we were entertaining out of town guests who were foodies.
