Venue was way too loud. Very crowded. Too little space between tables. Squash salad was very good. Crab cakes were more appetizer size. Whitefish was good, but over prepared!!! All food ale carte!! Difficult being gluten free.

It was really noisy but it was Saturday night so I get it. My favorite dish is the scallops and risotto but this visit I found it under seasoned and overall lacking it’s normal flavor. We also had the pork chop and it was dry. We have had it previously and it’s been tender and cooked perfectly. There was also confusion in regards to our bill. We received a call that we had been charged the incorrect amount. It wasn’t the best meal I have had but I can chalk it up to it being busy.

Great date night place. City vibe in the burbs. Whitefish is AMAZING. Chicken entree... not so much. 🍸 cocktails were outstanding. Overall... pricey. But nice place for date night or special occasion. Our server.... meh. Neither here nor there.

Very average and unimaginative food. My wife’s meal was cold. Every part of the experience was just ok, which is frustrating given the prices. We liked the decor and style - the place has potential but doesn’t come through.

My salad was good it was the autumn salad although I told them to add beets to it which made it better than it probably would’ve been
My meal which was on that night’s special of steak and lobster was horrible
sauce way too salty lobster wasn’t done was like eating sushi and I sent it back
My friends dinner which was a pasta with shrimp stuffed with crab meat was horrible Buttered noodles with no taste What we would give to our kids and grandchildren and the shrimp was tough the crabmeat was not pleasant tasting.
All I ate that night was salad, bread and butter a glass of wine for $14 and was there for a special birthday for my friend and so they did bring out a special bread pudding with vanilla ice cream for her birthday dessert I’ve had a lot better than that one
I was around there the next day was so upset about the meal that I stopped in there to ask for the manager and all I got was we did give you credit for your meal the table next to yours thought it was good. I told her the other meal wasn’t good either that’s why I didn’t order anything when they asked me to order another meal. Then she said well if it wasn’t good why did your girlfriend bring her leftovers home ??!! Rude. So I told her her grandson who is seven was coming over the next day and he would eat the bland buttered noodles.
Not very happy and either was my girlfriend except for her small hand crafted pomegranate margarita
Was not going to write anything like this until I went back in there to tell her how I felt And she made me feel like it was my fault
Too many other great restaurants with good food out there

I found House 406 about a year ago and I have been a regular every since then. I have never had a bad experience and the food is excellent. I take all of my clients, colleagues and customers here when they come in to town. House 406 is my favorite restaurant on the North Shore of Chicago.

The food was not as good as in previous visits here and service was not as attentive as it has been in the past, but my major complaint is how the NewYear’s Eve “celebration” was handled. We had an 8:30 reservation and by 9:30 we were one of two parties left in the restaurant. It’s not management’s fault that people left early, but what I found unforgivable was the decision to start taking down and boxing up the New Year’s decorations at 9:45. Talk about a buzz kill!

We went to House 406 with another couple for New Year's Eve dinner. It was our first time dining at the restaurant and we will certainly be back. The menu is diverse and interesting and each dish that we ordered was prepared beautifully. The server was friendly, attentive and professional. We had a lovely evening! Happy 2019!

Love coming to House 406, food is wonderful, service is awesome, special shout out to Scott our waiter who has served us on previous occasions. Only thing we missed is the owner's special carrot cake. We celebrated my father-in-laws 95th birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Top notch restaurant! Service was outstanding. Will definitely go back. Food was excellent, although I ordered my filet medium rare plus & unfortunately it came out closer to rare, so I had to send it back & it was only the ends that were cooked more, middle was still almost rare. Still delicious though!

We found this place by pure luck as it's off the beaten path and located in a strip shopping center. However, don't be fooled by the location. The food was fantastic, the service exceptional and the prices extremely reasonable. The cocktails were not only creative, but excellent. We can't wait to go back again!

The food is fresh, locally-sourced, and organic, whenever possible. It is genuinely delicious, and interesting.

Drinks are fabulous and a bit novel (try the raspberry margarita).

Staff is friendly, helpful, attentive, and fun.

Several excellent experiences, in the past 6 months.

Comfortable venue, nice inside. Excellent service. Huge choice of select bourbon, whisky, gin and scotch. Menu pretty diverse with good selection. Walleye pike dish was a bit fishy and under-cooked, filet and lobster combo was delicious. Burger was under-cooked and impossible to manage--stacked with stuff that came squirting out of the bun as soon as you picked it up. Burger meat was unseasoned so undistinguished meat on its own once burger contents dumped out on your plate. We'll give it another try.

Excellent food, superb service. This owner operated establishment is a diamond hidden in the Suburbs. Wine and menu selections were great. Total bill including steak and salmon choices, appetizers, drinks and a bottle of wine was under $175 for two. Great place for a date, romantic evening or just a really good meal with ambiance suited for conversation.
