We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this restaurant! The food was excellent, fresh, and creative. The wait staff and manager were friendly and attentive but did not interfere with our conversation. We would highly recommend this restaurant!

We sat outside for lunch. It was a lovely day and the restaurant does an excellent job of visually blocking out the parking lot.

However, the mall blasts a terrible radio station with voices, "music" that is most incompatible with conversation, and sprinkled with static. The waiter told me they have no control over what the mall blasts through its speakers, but they should b=get together with others in the mall and jointly complain.
I will gladly go back there when I want to dine indoors, assuming they choose better and quieter music.

We took our relatives out to dinner to recognize their hosting our recent vacation/visit. We need organic/farm-to-table as much as possible to manage husband’s autoimmune issue. Weren’t sure if our relatives would enjoy that (their taste is more traditional steakhouse.) Every bite was delicious. The service was great. We went early and sat inside (too much west sun at the early dinner hour.) So we had a wonderful, quiet place and didn’t notice the restaurant filling up as we dined. Wedge salads, steak, fish, steak & lobster - each delicious and every bite cleaned up! For me, a nice list of wines by the glass. We’ll be back. Loved it.

My friend and I met for dinner at House 406 and really enjoyed our experience. The bartender made me a drink based on some general likes/dislikes and it was delicious. We were able to sit outside on the patio (on a lovely summer night) which was so relaxing. I had the halibut special which was delicious although it was a rather small portion of halibut. My friend had the scallops with risotto. The scallops were a little chewy but the risotto was delicious and the flavors in the sauce and other vegetables was delicious. Our waiter picked a perfect wine to go with our seafood entrees.

The first time that we were at the restaurant with our whole family we had a waiter that was absolutely fabulous! He made the whole experience for us. When we returned recently, our waiter was not so great, but not terrible either. We were there for the great food anyway and it was just that ... great!

First time here; service was a little slow at times but food was delicious. Very noisy because it was almost full the entire time we were there. Waiter brought the wrong dessert so he comped it. Mushroom soup was outstanding as was the lobster appetizer!

We went there for my birthday dinner and arrived on Friday at 5:30. We were the first ones there . I ordered an old fashioned ( like a Manhattan) which is their specialty and it was really good. For dinner my husband had the lamb chops with a scrumptious sauce and tender broccoli. He loved it! I had the 6 ounce filet which was perfectly cooked medium rare and scrumptious. It came paired with a lobster tail which was topped with buttery spices YUM!
Then they surprised me with some warm apple cobbler
and ice cream with a candle!! Our waiter was very attentive
asking how our food was, and filling our bread basket and water. It was a very special night.

House 406 has an outstanding, very diverse gluten free menu. The options we ordered, the pork chop and lamb chops were prepared in a very delicious manner. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Very nice for a romantic couples evening (we celebrated our anniversary). They even prepared a proper whiskey sour, with egg white.

The fish tacos, ordered without sauces, were so salty— as if they poured the whole salt shaker on the food. Otherwise, we were quite pleased with our visit.

First time there. My daughter and I took my husband for dinner on Father’s Day & were not disappointed. We were not previously familiar with this restaurant and were so impressed! Everything was exquisite. Drinks, appetizers, main dish, desserts as well as the service were great. Only thing that bothered us was a long table that was there perhaps celebrating Father’s Day that had about 4 kids that were loud and running a bit wild at times with no one controlling them. Our waiter said that was very unusual for the restaurant. We will definitely go back.

We sat at the bar before our reservation and had a drink. They were wonderful. We sat outside for dinner and had the specials of the night, an 8oz filet and lemon ricotta gnocchi. The steak was wonderful. Cooked perfectly and had great flavor. My wife’s gnocchi was tender, but it was missing the lemon flavor. We had the chocolate lava cake for dessert. Amazing! We love dining here since we live close and can walk here. Thanks House 406 for your attentive service, high quality food, and provide a date night close to home.

Food is amazing and so is the bartender!!!
Not too big not too small and you can usually get a seat at the bar.
Waiters are well trained so service is excellent.
I'm always surprised I can get a reservation, it really is 5 star.

Our first time there. Pork chop was one of the best, as were the onion rings. Bread service was a little underwhelming and the tables were a little too close together. Noise level was moderate. Prices a little on the high side so we will probably only consider for special occasions.

Great meal and nice cozy atmosphere. Very loud, but I didn’t mind it. I had a great Filet, very rich and delicious. Waiter didn’t come to our table very much, and we didn’t even order our food until after we finished our appetizers because he didn’t come over. Never got any water refills either. Food came out relatively fast though. Overall good experience.
