Try the Mayan Goddess margaritas! Yum Yum!! Also the chips (super thin and crunchy with just the right amount of salt) and salsa are delicious too! The menu offers a lot of variety and everything is fresh and delicious! Very friendly and fun staff too!

The atmosphere is warm and lively with a menu inspired by many Latin countries as well as eclectic American twists. The bar can claim to be the first with an outstanding beer called Delitches and the cocktails can't be beat.

Food is consistently good, and the staff is like family. Tough to get in during the summer, but ALWAYS worth the wait. Winter months, it is cozy inside. Excellent wine list.

My husband called ahead to ask about accommodating my food allergies. The manager on the phone and the server were both knowledgeable and reassuring about the chef's ability to accommodate my needs (and I did not suffer a reaction afterwards). All portions were big and the food was fantastic. It was fun to sit on the wrap around porch on... More

We were visiting the Botanic Gardens and the question of where to eat for dinner arose. My trusty trip advisor app guided us to Depot Nuevo. From the moment we walked in we felt the superior customer service. Since we are not big eaters and the portions were more than adequate for a single person we mentioned we would share... More

Bottom line, i'm giving Depot Nuevo a 3 for the food, and a 5 for the atmosphere (atmosphere weighs heavily in my reviews), and a 4 for service. Therefore, it averages out to a 4. I love places like this---located in a old train depot, nice moody lighting, beautiful outside eating area, and located in [historic] downtown Wilmette, one of... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it - not an absolute culinary delight but reasonably good food at reasonable prices. We ate there 2 nights ago and both my wife and I found the food tasteless and barely 1 step above institutional fare. Any restaurant can have a bad night but this seemed beyond that.... More

I don't know why, but we didn't go to Depot Nuevo for a couple of years, but when we did go back, we realized that it's the best restaurant in Wilmette. Great atmosphere - especially on the porch, awesome margaritas & delicious food.
