    We had brunch here and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits. Delish! The service was great, but it was SO loud in there, the server was hard to hear and had to lean in to hear. It's a shame....I'd love to have the shrimp and grits again, but I can't handle that noise.

    I went with a group of 4. We made reservations and were seated right away. All the staff was very freindly. From viewing what others had selected at surrounding tables. Everything looked great! We each selected something diffeerent and loved our choices. Brunch was a total sucess! Thanks!

    My experience at Hutch was phenomenal! The food was amazing and the ambiance was very peaceful. Our service was impeccable and the staff was very attentive. I made reservations as an out of town guest for my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They surprised me with a bottle of wine, lava cake dessert, and a $10 gift card for a future visit! My girls and I had a wonderful dinner experience.

    My friends and I all liked our meals. I got the horseradish encrusted salmon which was delicious but slightly over cooked for my medium-rare request. The gents loved their steaks and my bestie loves her lobster Mac n cheese. The table are a bit close together but we only noticed it walking to our table and when the bus boys would come to our table. Overall great place though!!

    The restaurant was very crowded, per normal Sunday Brunch, but the tables were much too close to each other, causing the dining experience to be less than intimate. Definitely not good for crowds over 6 due to space, but the wait staff was very friendly, even with the crowded space & high demand. I really liked the fact that a reservation could be made to accommodate a large group, such as the one I was with. My two complaints would be that my food order was messed up, but resolved within 10 minutes & the wait staff was overworked, causing the wait time to get him back to the table to be longer than we would have liked (for refills & such).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 11/4/2014
    The place has a bit of a "hipster" vibe, but not annoyingly so. I was quite comfortable there and the staff made us feel very welcome. The service was spectacular, the meatball & pork belly appetizer is a MUST and the steak & fries were delicious and unlike any I've had in the city. Definitely worth the trip. The only negatives are that it got a bit loud, they don't carry my particular brand of gin and the horseradish crusted salmon seemed like a rather confused dish, with too many elements that clashed. It doesn't have a great view, but with two walls that are almost entirely made of windows and on a corner, I can't wait to sit there on a winter's night with a cocktail and steak while watching the snow fall. Worth another visit!

    I took my 90 year old mother to Hutch for Sunday brunch. It was extremely busy and really loud, but she loved it. She uses a walker and it's difficult to navigate stairs and even ramps. Even though I requested "walker accessible" for the table, we were seated in a "step up" area. That turned out not to be a problem; busman, and even the patrons, couldn't have been more helpful if they had actually picked my mother up and carried her to the table. Even the valet was totally into helping me with Mom. It was very impressive. The food was yummy. We started with blood orange Mimosas, and we had the corn waffle with fried chicken and a smoked salmon flatbread (both recommendation of our server, who was great). We enjoyed every morsel!

    We had a great experience here the first time so brought a group of 6 with us this past Saturday night. The food was inconsistent and half right (didn't totally match description, burger was dry, steak was overdone). The cornbread is wonderful, but they melted the bacon butter on top of both orders much to the dismay of the 2 vegetarians in our party. The last time we ordered cornbread the bacon butter came on the side so I didn't think it was going to be an issue this time. It gets VERY loud in there to the point where we were having a hard time hearing each other. The night wasn't ruined, but it wasn't great either.

    This was our first time to Hutch. Had the tuna and Hutch fries for appetizers, the grilled meatloaf and steak and fries for dinner and the white chocolate bread pudding for desert. All were delicious and perfectly prepared. We will definitely return. Service was just ok ... took a while even though it wasn't very busy when we got there. But overall this place is a gem.

    The food was delicious! We will be back.The dining room has nice tall windows so you can see all the "action" outside. Lighting inside is a little dim. Bar looked nice but went straight to the table. My husband had scallops which he loved. I had a hamburger with mashed potatoes which was top quality. We also had roasted brussel sproats which I would go back just for them.Good beer and wine list.So Good

    Hutch has become such a great go-to spot for a nice dinner. Classy, but casual, dim, but not dark, and great food/drinks with reasonable prices. We have taken family and friends here, and it's always won praises for it's unpretentious attitude and solid menu. If there is a model for a great, neighborhood restaurant, these guys are it.

    Based on it's location and previous reviews, we opted to try this neighborhood gem in the Lakeview neighborhood. It was within walking distance too for us from our destination. We were there on a Sunday evening, it wasn't super busy but steady. Everything went fine. Service and food was excellent. Lived up to the descriptions on the menu. Recommend for anyone looking for a nice dinner spot in this area without being too fancy, but still quite nice.

    Went in for my first time, the drink menue was limited band has a lot of mandarin and orange drinks - not my favorite but they were able to accommodate and took one if the non alcohol drinks and made it alcoholic. We started with the chips and onion dip which was amazing, homemade chips and dip. Then for dinner had the new York strip, it was perfectly cooked and had a great flavor.

    We've been to Hutch a few times and once again, great meal! You cannot beat the skillet shrimp with dunking sauce appetizer, I had the lobster mac and cheese which was wonderful (not heavy and very smooth) and my husband had the short ribs - they were great! Our server was very good and timely but once the restaurant filled up and became very busy, service was a bit inconsistent but we understood. Hutch is a great neighborhood restaurant - we'll be back!

    We tried Hutch for the first time earlier this week and will be back to try other items. We had a light sharing meal. The Hutch Salad was perfectly dressed. We followed it up with the Salmon. The salmon was perfectly cooked and we loved the polenta cake and the roasted corn and pepper relish. The Barrique Rrussian River Valley Ppinot Noir paired well with the meal. Anne was very helpful, informative and fun to talk to. The restaurant is on a busy corner and offers great people watching. At 5:30 on a week night the restaurant was very conversation friendly. We'll be back again to try other items.

    The menu is diverse and all the selections are very good (we had trout, chicken, and French dip amongst us). The only downside is that it is VERY noisy to the point where I had to ask friend sitting next to me to repeat themselves. And it may be my problem, but I had to use the Flashlight app to read the details on the menu.

    Great brunch spot, can't really beat $8 karafes of mimosas. (avail. in white peach, blood orange and regular) The food is delicious, the service is attentive and even when the place is packed your food comes out so quickly. The only negative is it does get a bit loud in there since there's no wall to break up the sound in the open dining space.

    I have been to Hutch many times for dinner and brunch and it never disappoints. Notable selections on their brunch menu are shrimp and grits and chilaquiles. These two are some of my favorites. The dinner menu is also great. I especially love the wasabi crusted salmon and the braised short-ribs. I absolutely love this place. I live in the neighborhood and frequently dine at Hutch and it has always been delicious. The only "bad" thing is that I wish they had a more varied beer selection.

    We have become regulars at Hutch because it does everything so right. Firstly, the atmosphere is comfortable, accessible and inviting. Secondly, the food is consistently enjoyable. The menu is updated seasonally and I think I've tried just about everything! (Had the Panko Crusted Chicken last night...DELICIOUS!) Thirdly, and most importantly, the people at Hutch are some of the friendliest hospitality professionals I've encountered while dining in Chicago. Management on down; everyone is working together seamlessly to ensure your experience is top notch. Lindsey the GM is awesome. Jeneva (our fav!) is sunny and hilarious! Marvin, Ally...the list goes on and on. Go for the food, stay for the awesome people. Thanks Hutch!!

    Discovered Hutch with a good friend about 7 months ago. First time was amazing food and cocktails (blood orange margarita) were awesome.Take advantage of the weekly deals, took my mom there for mothers day...the waitress gave me a $10 coupon not necessary but very great service, and just planned a friend surprise get together there. When I meet with my friend who I discovered Hutch with 7 months ago we usual decide to go back here. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT FOR ANY Occasion..please bring back the bacon brussell sprouts soon!
