The short ribs were the highlight of the meal. The salmon appetizer tasted good, but it tasted more like a fancy egg salad than salmon, which was a miss.
Food was delicious and staff went above and beyond to make sure our entire evening including seeing the Strumbellas went off without a hitch!
Duseks is a casual restaurant with great food. Our braised shortribs and our gnocchi appetizer were top notch. If you are going to a concert upstairs at Thalia Hall, Duseks is a must!
Great place to go prior to seeing a show at Thalia Hall. Great food, great cocktails, great ambience.
They said they no longer accept open table reservations, so it was quite embarrassing that my reservation wasn’t valid. They need to be removed from your site immediately.
We were out to see Mandolin Orange at Thalia Hall and decided to have dinner before the show at Duseks for the convenience. We were very pleasantly surprised with a really great restaurant and a wonderful concert venue. We had really well prepaired food and saw a very good show. We'll be back to Duseks and Thalia Hall.
We were visiting Chicago and very excited to eat at Dusek's. This restaurant has the makings of something great, but the service is terrible. We waited at least 1/2 hour to receive our appetizers and then at least another 1/2 hour for our entrees. The appetizers arrived hot and were delicious. Our entrees would have been amazing but for the fact that they were barely warm when we received them. By that point, I was starving and not in the mood to delay my dinner longer by having the waiter send them back (plus just getting the waited to come to our table was a chore). There was never any apology for how long everything took (the restaurant wasn't terribly crowded from 8-10 p.m. on a Sunday night). We left feeling disappointed by the whole experience.
My husband and I visited Dusek's for the second time, to celebrate his recent promotion. I love this restaurant. It is casual, yet high end at the same time. The food and drinks are fantastic, anf the atmosphere is really nice.
Service was great, the server was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. The only downside was the lack of vegetarian options on the menu. Only one vegetarian entree, which felt slightly disappointing. Appetizers and dessert were fantastic.
Food is amazing
Overall we enjoyed the experience here. We did have some temperature issues with the food, but our server and the manager were great and made things 100%. So fantastic service recovery.
I do enjoy their food alot and the ambience is very chill. We'll be back
Everything was amazing!
The initial server we had was not nice. He came across as smug and handed us off to another waiter when he realized that he had upset us with his behavior. The food was very bad. Poor taste and presentation.
Food was great, but the restaurant was almost empty. Unfortunately only one server working which still made the service really slow for our larger party of 8
