Delicious menu- food was outstanding! From the appetizers (Brussels, Parker house rolls) to salads (gem salad and dandelions with quinoa) to entrees (salmon, chilaquilles, roast chicken) all amazing flavors! Service was a bit slow, though very friendly.
The menu options aren't extensive but they offer excellent choices for meat, fish and vegetarian meals. All menu items are locally sourced and freshly prepared.
Wonderful service, food was a simply amazing!!!
Fun menu and tasty food with interesting textures and tastes. Service was excellent.
I love this restaurant. The outdoor patio is nice. The food and cocktails are interesting and good, and the service is wonderful.
Always have a great experience here. The food never disappoints, and the atmosphere is unique. You feel like you are eating in your own dining room. The waitstaff is always attentive and welcoming. The hostess, Kira, is a real asset since she makes you feel as though you are the most important person in the restaurant.
We have been coming here since they opened, and we have never had a bad meal or experience.
This is such a lovely spot. We were celebrating our anniversary, and the whole experience really felt special and celebratory. The wonderful staff has a way of making you feel like you're one of the club, right at home. They are full of super helpful recommendations and guidance on what is a truly amazing menu. We're vegetarian and there were so many fun and new options. The cocktails are innovative and delicious, the room feels warm and magical. We loved it and thank you Found for making our day even more special.
Fantastic, can't wait to comes back!! Food was great, wonderful service.
Dear DianaeR, Thank you so much for reviewing!! We are so happy you enjoyed!
Our server was superb & made sure we were taken care of during our dining window. I hadn’t been for years and really appreciated the updated seasonal menu. It was very attentive to GF and Vegan. And it was easy to remove gluten & diary from many of the other plates. Great flavors & textures!
Dear anon, Thank you so much for returning! We are so happy you had a great time!
Friendliest and best service I think I’ve ever experienced.
Kyra runs the place like her own kitchen.
Trout burrito was delish, as were Brussels and mushroom sides were both as well.
One note, A POX ON THE CITY OF EVANSTON FOR APPLYING ITS ALCOHOL TAX. An affluent town further crushing local businesses.
Dear gpbyc, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review!!

Dear Pickylady, We are thrilled you loved!!! Thank you you so much we can't wait to you soon!
Beautiful ambiance and over-the-top amazing service. Great downtown Evanston spot!
Dear AnnC, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review!! We appreciate your support!
We had a wonderful experience with the most attentive and warm service. Food is outstanding and carefully prepared and presented. We were celebrating a birthday and the entire staff joined the celebration in a very sweet and subtle manner. The birthday celebrant was glowing from the evening onward
Food was excellent and huge variety. Above and beyond that, our server, Mikey, was extremely attentive and easy to chat with and just made our entire time at Found just absolutely wonderful.
Going back for sure and requesting Mikey.
Thanks a lot.
Dear KevinG, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! We are so happy you enjoyed Mikey as much as we do!!! We can't wait to see you again!!! Cheers!
Second time dining there and it did not disappoint! The food is fabulous (kung pao brussel sprouts are a must) the service is attentive and the ambience is spectacular. So happy to have this place in Evanston!
This was our 4th visit, and we had thoroughly enjoyed Found all 3 prior times. They were short staffed, as every place is these days, but the service was fine. Two of our party enjoyed their meals, but my wife had the vegetarian chard meal, which really had little flavor. I had the steak, which had a flavorful sauce and the dish was aesthetically appealing and cooked as I asked, but the beef was as tough as any I’d ever eaten, and seemed cheap. As this was our daughter’s birthday dinner - we didn’t tell staff as we don’t like extra attention- we were especially disappointed. Luckily our daughter did enjoy her meal.
Found always has great food and great service.
Great food, beautifully presented; warm and inviting atmosphere.
Dear KateM, Wow!! Thank you so much for your kind review!! We appreciate your support!! Cheers!
There were only 5 entree selections, far less than our last visit. No flat bread pizzas, no Hewn bread. They need to update the menu and go back to Farm-to-Table concepts with nightly specials as well.
Excellent service and great atmosphere, but the food was too expensive in relation to its quality.
Excellent food and accommodating service! Staff was helpful in switching us to an inside table before it rained, and helped my senior parents to the new table with ease and aplomb!
Dear EricF, We are so happy you had a great night dining with us!! Thank you so much for taking the time to review...we hope to see you again....hopefully outside while the weather is still nice! Cheers!
Found is a great find in Evanston (sorry, couldn't resist) Great service, super cool vibe and wonderful food. We shared 3 small plates, all were delicious.

Dear AshleyB, Thank you so very much for taking the time to review!! We are thrilled you enjoyed!
Went with a couple friends for cocktails and some small plates. The sazerac was top-notch, as expected from Found. And, of course, the brussel sprouts were delicious. Wonderful service from the people working there, too. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for your 5 star review!
The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding.
Dear ChelseagirlNY, Thank you so much for reviewing!! We are so grateful!! We are thrilled you enjoyed!
So lovely. The music, food, staff and outdoor seating
Great service and unique décor. The mashed Brussel sprouts, that came with the steak, were so salty I couldn't eat them. There is no way the chef could have tasted those. My friend also got the steak and Brussel sprouts and the same. Unfortunately, but would not go back for that reason. $$$$ 3 entrees, 1 shareable, 1 dessert and only 1 alcoholic drink $145 before tip. oh well
We had a fantastic dinner. Everything about the food was delicious. There were gluten free options, and the service was great!
Dear BrittanyB, Thank you so much for your 5 star review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your evening!!!
