    The service and food were both exceptional. The ambiance is lovely with upscaled decor. I tasted the Burrata, Ceviche, Octopus a La Plancha, and the Brussels sprouts. All noteworthy dishes with the Brussels sprouts and the Octopus a La Plancha being among my favorites.

    Exceptional customer service and food experience. We had someone in our party with food allergies, and 2 birthdays. The waiter was so knowledgeable, kind & competent. And the birthday surprise from The Dearborn went above and beyond. This place is the best; thank you!

    We were meeting our nephew and his girl friend for lunch before the Goodman Theater matinee. The service was ok but the food was not as good as at other times we’ve been there. The hamburger was too greasy, the added sautéed onions were mushy and the hamburger was undercooked for “medium”. The quiche was ok except the crust was a little burnt. The Brussel sprouts were fantastic! The funny thing is the walleye was excellent. When I asked the server “how was the walleye “ she steered us away because she said “it’s served with the skin” and she didn’t make that sound appealing. My nephew ordered it anyway and said it was excellent and it did look so good I wished I had ordered it. My husband doesn’t want to ever go back but I think we will give it another chance sometime.

    Most of the cocktails are batched so can't substitute alcohols BUT they are VERY well made. The "thrice cooked" octopus is phenomenal. And the (not pictured) duck rillettes is some of the best I've. My dinner companion and I ordered 2 starters and a side plus 1 cocktail each and it was *about* $50 a person with tip. A lovely dinner experience.

    Enjoyed listening to live music - Sundays 12:00-2:00pm. Excellent breakfast foods. Quiche was good but unfortunately burnt on the bottom. Lovely place to go before a Sunday performance at the Goodman Theater.

    Celebrated our anniversary with a dinner here (and show at the theater). The cocktails were incredible. The Noble House came out with an applewood chip on fire sitting on top of the ice cube. The burger and the walleye were both cooked well and tasted great! Server was very friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought out a hand-written card for us and a free small pour of champaign.

    This was my first time here, and I only chose it because I was going to The Goodman. It turned out to be a very good experience. Our waitperson was personable and attentive. He did a great job of describing the food. The oysters were some of the best I've even had, and the Halibut was outstanding. I really never order dessert, but the Root Beer Float Cake was just too enticing, and it did not disappoint. My only complaint would be the noise level. It was not conversation friendly, but that may have been due to the large group of rowdy guys seated next to us. Will definitely return.
