We chose Found for tonight's dinner because of its requirement that guests show proof of vaccination. The icing on the cake was that the food, service and ambience are outstanding. A pleasant dinner in every respect.

We have dined here several times, always have a great experience. Their food is nutritious, inventive, and flavorful. We especially appreciate that now they require proof of Covid vaccination. That helps protect customers as well as staff.

Lovely experience. They were training new staff and we still had an amazing time with all our needs met, that can be difficult and they pulled it off beautifully.
Elotes, Gem salad, Steak and Second Chakra.
Perfect meal, exactly what we were hoping for and more.
Thank you!

Found is the stalwart of Evanston dining and sets the bar high for all of the north shore. You can go casual or dress up and it’s great both ways. First time sitting at the bar and it was amazing. I love the seating couches for the bar. Makes it way more intimate. Wednesday Jazz night is not the be missed. Fantastic addition to a stunning restaurant. If there is one of their handmade sodas on the menu, just order it. With or without booze, doesn’t matter, just order it. They are always fantastic.

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.

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.

Recommend.

One note, A POX ON THE CITY OF EVANSTON FOR APPLYING ITS ALCOHOL TAX. An affluent town further crushing local businesses.

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.

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.
