I've been to the Hubbard in
I've been to the Hubbard in a few times and I always enjoy it. The food, service and ambiance are great. I had a friend in from Kansas City and he really enjoyed it too. He'll be back on business in a couple weeks and mentioned that he'd like to go back. The chicken thighs and the bacon wrapped dates were really good. The scallops were just ok. The rest of our food was great!

Had a great dinner in a great atmosphere. It was very loud, however. We left dinner still shouting at each other.

Food was very good, service was good just not prompt since we waited a bit longer after being seated before our server made it to the table.

We had 8:45 reservations, but no tables were available (no one was leaving probably due to the Bulls game being televised). Staff was very polite in the matter. After waiting about 20-30 minutes, I went back to check and they said our group was next, before I could get a word out. Once a table was available, we were seated. I'd still say our experience was great.

Great food & service
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Hubbard Inn on a rare night downtown without kids. The waitress was friendly and checked in regularly without being overwhelming, and the food was terrific. We went with a selection of small plates to share (more food than an appetizer, but less than a full-size entree), and didn't have a dud in the bunch. We particularly enjoyed the pork belly risotto and the seared scallops.

Wish I'd found this gem earlier!
Visiting Chicago for 5 days and tried Hubbard on my last night in town. Loved everything about it! It has a nice pubby feel to it but is clearly upscale in its creative food, craft drinks, and gracious service. It was a Monday night and the place was buzzing with happy people having a good time. Quite a range of music playing, from Rihanna to Oasis to the Stones to Sinatra. I had the lobster bisque, lamb burger and crème brulee, and everything was delicious! My server was extremely attentive and responsive, and the prices were reasonable as well. Wish Hubbard Inn was in my home town--lucky Chicagoans!

I loved their food. This place has been on my list for some time now. The food was wonderful. My boyfriend and I ordered several small plates to share. They're drinks are amazing. A bartender who meddles herb and fruits, as well as uses real citrus juices is a winner hands down. Highly recommend.

The lunch was fantastic and the service pleasant. A definite place to repeat.

Hepburn's are my fave!
Drinks here are FANTASTIC! So is the ambiance. Very good spot for a group of girls- Friday night girls night out!! The mussels were overcooked, which was disappointing but the short ribs were AWESOME, so was the tuna tartar. I love this place and will definitely be back! GREAT place to take a group of people in the heart of River North and all the fun!

The food is great, not SUPER fancy but very delicious.
Service is always good cocktails are great.
The atmosphere is energetic and slightly posh but not pompous.

Hubbard Inn always has a great vibe - have been there now on a Saturday night for dinner and Thursday Happy Hour and it was great for both. Food is small plates to share and everything we have ordered on either occassion was unique and delicious!

We went to Hubbard Inn for brunch. Everything we ordered was delicious. We had the Lobster Omelet and Breakfast Burger and both were excellent. They were short on staff, therefore service was a little slow but the staff was apologetic about it. The space is beautifully decorated.

Came here for Halloween's Fall Harvest menu. The first observation we made was the interior - Hubbard Inn is a beautiful space that truly takes you back in time (especially with Hemingway greeting you on your way in). Love the tile on the walls and lighting fixtures. From the menu we chose the pear/goat blue cheese salad (generous portion of cheese and whole poached pear!), scallops (perfectly cooked in a delicious sauce and great size portion), and pumpkin creme brulee (half warm, half cold). We also ordered the grilled octopus salad off the regular menu and highly highly highly recommend it. In a very unique preparation, the octopus is cut up into pieces and served at room temperature with a delicious vinaigrette and bursting tomatoes.

Fun venue and great service!
Hubbard Inn has been on "must check out" list for awhile and I finally found an opportunity to visit -- for my birthday. I invited about 10 friends for drinks and planned to meet in the couch area in the back. I hadn't reserved it but thought that if I got there early enough it would be open. Unfortunately it was not when I arrived but the hostess was very friendly and said she could seat us at a table, would keep an eye on the couch area for us and alert us when the other party vacated. Right as we were ordering our drinks I noticed that the party vacated and we quickly switched to that area. Our original waitress stayed with us and was absolutely great (along with the busboys and servers) -- very attentive and responsive. Kudos!

Warm atmoshere great food
celebrated my wife's birthday in a great window seat. Warm atmosphere on a cold damp Chicago night. We had a combination of large and small plates, the short rib and lamb meatballs were exceptional. Great craft beers on tap, pretty good wine list and great service. A really enjoyable night
