    D4 has a varied menu and moderate prices. Service is consistently good. On this occasion we brought three couples to join us after a downtown Chicago outing. All eight had little trouble finding items on the menu to pick from. Service was prompt and sufficiently attentive. Everyone enjoyed their entree.

    This was our second visit to D4 (once with adults only, this time with kids), and once again we were not disappointed. The menu is typical pub fare with some home-style cooking mixed in . The portions are large and the prices are very good for the city. The kids and adults loved the chicken tenders (one order could probably feed 2 kids under the age of 10), and the shepard's pie, chicken pot pie, fish and chips, and burgers are very good. If you are looking for gourmet food, this isn't the place. But if you are looking for some of the best pub food in town at very reasonable prices, D4 will not disappoint.

    There were 8 of us in our party and we wanted a spot near Navy Pier that would take 8 people at 7pm. They were wonderful! The food was fantastic and prompt and the waitstaff was very attentive. We ordered to appetizers to share and they were delicious. We ordered the loaded tater tots and the home made potato chips with dip. I had the D4 Burger, 2 people ordered the fish and chips, one person had the lobster mac and cheese.

    D4 is a pretty authentic Irish bar serving a terrific selection of very good food. The large interior pub is very spacious featuring a dining room and a bar area. There is outdoor seating amidst a pretty urban garden which is a very nice place to be on a beautiful summer evening. The waitstaff is terrific, very accommodating and friendly. The menu selections are vast with great burgers as you would expect but also include fish tacos, quinoa and kale salads, a range of sandwiches and cooked meat, chicken and fish. All plates are nicely presented with quick service. I have always had a great experience at D4, it is dependable, friendly and the food is delicious. Will return.

    We've been to D4 a few times and have always liked their food. Our waitress on our most recent visit was one of the worst I've ever had. Very rude and her timing was awful. She came to our table 4 times asking if we were ready to order when we had just arrived and then after we had our food we never saw her again. She also made a big production out of taking the signed check while we were still at the table talking. Does she really need it right away? Wish I had gotten her name so I could let you know who to avoid.

    We dined at D4 on a Saturday evening at about 9:30pm with a group of 5 and we had an excellent time! The food was absolutely delicious, the service was great and the prices were incredibly reasonable for Chicago. We were so thrilled with our meal that I can't wait to come back next time we are in the area! Thanks D4!

    Went there with my family of five and we were treated very well. Good outdoor seating as well as a good five indoors. All food was brought in a timely manner and was cooked well. Pretty solid menu but not too overwhelming. My kids enjoyed the meals my wife and I were happy with our meals and their drink selection.

    I always enjoy lunch at D4, I love the corn beef sandwich, jicama cole slaw, which has a zing. The french fries are great. For desert I had Tiramisue with berries, yum. Staff and service is always fiendly and inviting. Love the ambiance, fireplace, great bar, and windows all around. This could be my favorite casual restaurant, and I invite everyone to try it, something for everyone. Cheers!

    This was my second visit to D4 and my impressions are consistent: comfortable pub, good service and really good pub-style food. No, D4 will never earn a Michelin star, but that's just fine. The hostess and wait staff are friendly, the drinks are good and the beer selection is extensive. The grilled cheese triangles are delicious, as are each of the 3 available styles of slider. The D4 burger is really good, with lots of beef and just enough pretzel roll to hold on to. Great fries. The walnut Manhattan was a great riff on a classic cocktail.

    Pretty good food overall, but fish and chips should never run $14 in Chicago... even in in tourist centric Streeterville. I also expected a better beer list, at least a more interesting assortment of what's on draught. They do have a cool outdoor patio, a nice spacious interior, and can accommodate large groups.

    We have never had a bad meal at D4. The food is wonderful, the service is terrific, and the owner, Mr. O'Neal takes great pride in the ambiance of the venue. It's decor is beautiful - can be loud at times - but, the feel and comfort of the restaurant far exceeds the noise level. The new menu offers something for everyone...my husband loves the burgers - for me, the bourban salmon is my favorite. And for Irish, the Guiness pour is top notch!

    We discovered D4 a few weeks back as a great place to go before heading next door to AMC. The food is AMAZING, the drinks are great, they have a great beer selection, and the service is attentive. We have been back at least 4 times in less than a month. They have a patio - which I'm sure we will be on all summer. The home made chips are a MUST as are the chicken tenders!

    I made Reservations 4 days before. When arriving the host informed me that there was only one area that i can sit in , because thay had 2 big parties booked. and they were pretty full. I did not like being told this since i made reservations before hand and i should of been made aware at that time at that time so i could of decided if i wanted to keep my reservations. or go else where. The waiter i had sucked !!!! he never smiled brought a glass of water with no ice. just sat it on the table without making my party aware!!! . food 5 stars, atmosphere 5 stars , employees 1 star. for the few that did not wait on my table and actually was nice.
