Meal was great- Key Lime Cheesecake the best. Tables a bit too close to each other. Don’t want to be able to hear my neighbors discussion. Other than that great ambiance

Food is always good here. Seating is tight if you’re not in a booth and door was stuck open so cold air hit our backs while dining. Not all that pleasant.

Sunday at 11 am and no brunch menu. Disappointing, especially since the River North location has brunch. Turkey burger was very dry, everything else was fine. Waitress was nice, even though she couldn’t do anything about the lack of brunch dishes.

Come here often. This has to be one of our worst experiences. They messed up one of the meals, but did comp it, which was great. The managers always make sure everything is good. Came in for a 16th Birthday dinner, put it in the notes and pointed it out to the hostess. She said she would let the server know, nothing at all. Also didn’t see much of the waitress either. We will be back, this night just seemed to be an off night.

My wife and I are in town for a few days to explore the city. We chose Doc Bs because of the vegan options for my wife. She ordered “The Plate” and was extremely pleased! Kale salad with avocado vinaigrette was her favorite. I got the Steak Frites which was cooked perfectly and packed a lot of flavor. Service was phenomenal, I can’t remember the gentleman’s name but his service was exactly what we wanted. He was there when we needed him and he never interrupted during our conversation. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

This was my second visit. Excellent welcome and service. Meagan was very prompt, friendly and professional. Food was somewhat a disappointment for the cost. Was served the seared tuna sandwich which was delicious but it was served with one half toppled over and I had to reconstruct the sandwich to eat it. The server who brought it to me should have taken it back to the kitchen. Meagan to her credit noticed this and apologized. The tuna was well prepared although it had a streak of sinew or something in one half that made it hard to eat. The sandwich was not much bigger than a slider and cost $20 so not a good value. But I think they do a good job and the food is generally good. Just some things to think about.

I really like Doc B’s but had a very bad experience recently. I got the matza ball soup at lunch on a Saturday, and the matza balls were either frozen/old/or frost bitten. Either way they were inedible. I didn’t say anything about it, but it was clear something was wrong when I cut all of them in half and only one bite was taken. The manager noticed and brought it to the chef (the kitchen is open) they all gathered around concerned, my waitress also joined. Eventually they had a discussion and went back to work. Unfortunately the manager who knew the soup was inedible, and conferred with his chefs said absolutely nothing to me, and they still charged me for the soup. I’m not one to complain, so I didn’t mind that but I was fully expecting at least an apology seeing they knew food they served was not consumable. Point is, their food is usually very good, and I wasn’t even mad about the mistake, but the lack of decent/incredibly obvious costumer service from the restaurant and its managers was surprising to say the least.

We love the food here! Our second time and we will go back the next time we are in Chicago. Food is healthy and great vegetarian options which can be hard to find. Drinks are great as well. The service has been super both times we have been here. Can't say enough about our satisfaction and enjoyment here.

The food was great, and my Open Table reservation (which I'd made for their other location) was quickly and professionally handled in time for my two guests, who had no idea upon arrival. The first server to our table took a drink order and was very friendly and agreeable, while our dinner server was a little officious. We had a nice table near the window, which cut down on some of the noise in the middle of the restaurant. The hostess was very friendly, as well.

The food was excellent and tasty. I had the corned beef sandwich, and it was very filling. The restaurant is pretty small, but we made reservations ahead of time, although we still had to wait 5 minutes for a table to open up. Highly recommended!

The waiter did a great job selling me on the day’s special. Then 5 minutes later someone,not our waiter comes by and says he has some “bad news”. The machine that makes tuna burger special broke and I needed to order something else and it would be available tomorrow- seems like a silly way to explain the problem

We stopped in here for lunch after browsing around downtown. The place was packed for lunch! We started with the guacamole and chips- would highly recommended. I tried the Wok Out Bowl which had fresh vegetables and fish. I would love to come back for dinner and see what the place is really all about! But this was perfect for a girls lunch.
