The food was delicious (I ordered the fish tacos) and service friendly and enthusiastic. The ambiance is lively but not at all frantic, and the music wasn't noticeable which is such a rarity at restaurants these days. We were able to have a conversation at normal volume of speech.

In September, I spent a few weeks touring Ireland. My kids were jealous. So this weekend, after Blue Man group, I took them to D4 to try some Irish fare. Let me say that the interior and atmosphere at D4 was classy and very comfortable. Staff was friendly too. The food was excellent, but the only Irish fare I saw on the menu was Shepard's Pie and Fish & Chips. My kids ordered American, so it obviously didn't matter haha! The highlight of my meal was the Crispy Brussel Sprouts with melted Brie and Bacon. Heavenly! I would definately visit D4 again.

We were in Chicago for New Years Eve. I booked D4 online from England a couple of months ago, after a lot of research to find a venue for NYE. We weren’t disappointed. A lovely warm welcoming atmosphere when we arrived, led to a cosy table by a real fire. The food was tasty and the service was excellent, friendly and just the right amount of attention.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at D4 and would definitely recommend to friends...

Salads were only made with kale. That us OK but we should have been told this. I have eaten at this restaurant many times and the salad greens were not only kale.
I love kale m, but was not appropriate for the Niçoise salad and the side salad.

We had brunch here again after a movie at the AMC River East. Again, we were very satisfied. The food was very good, the portions large, and the cost was still less than most other places we have eaten. The BBQ pork sandwich was large, unique, and delicious. It included a layer of kale, giving it the unique taste. We were seated next to the fireplace, a perfect location for a cold Chicago day.

Arrived for our reservation and had to wait ten minutes for them to get our table ready. When we were seated, the hostess says to us, "We have a private party in this area in an hour. Will you be done by then?" French onion soup, adult grilled cheese, and baked brie was delicious. Skip the stuffed avacado - not good.

D4 is truly one of my family's favorite restaurant. We love how the restaurant is always decorated so nicely for the Holidays. It reminds us of our visits to Ireland. And it is always so clean! The food is terrific and the servers are delightful. We are never rushed! Always a wonderful time. Thank You, Kathy

After working at a convention all day, it was a good place to get good food and good drinks. The prices were reasonable for downtown and the portions were nice sized too. It was a lively place with friendly wait staff but not too noisy, conversation across the table was easy.

I had 3 sliders, which can be mixed or matched. I had 3 different ones--cheeseburger, crab cake and pulled pork. They're enough for me to eat as a smaller meal. D4 has numerous choices of beer and adequate choices of wine. My friend chose the veggie burger and fries, but reported that the burger was somewhat tasteless. Would recommend that D4 make this item more tasty, as well as offering a turkey burger.

EXCELLENT As always D4 offers wonderful outdoor seating surrounded by flowers, great ppl watching, great service & of course Delicious Food, fresh, cooked accordingly. Have ordered most items on the menu, always consistent. Inside bar, HiTop, LowTop great to sit at & perhaps meet new friends. Owner, Brendan always a delight to meet & greet. Forever takes the time to welcome old & new patrons & makes sure all his customers are very well taken care of. Definitely would recommend D4 for any occasion. Obviously an asset to Streeterville. Oops!! don't forget to order their desserts....to die for.
