With a nod to the building's history, Dusek’s hopes to bring a comfortable food experience to this re-established corner tavern. Our corner spot echos the same neighborhood spirit of Mr. Dusek’s time where his family tavern once lived and breathed.

We went for my birthday, and everything was wonderful! I wouldn’t change anything about it.
So delicious! The music was top! Diana is the most sweet person.
Really excellent food and cocktails, a beautiful and romantic ambiance. Great place to eat before catching a show at Thalia Hall.
Awesome experience! Worth the trip!
Try the desserts!
As usual, Dusek's delivers. Post-covid reopening the food seemed a bit off, but now the kitchen seems to have gotten back in stride. All items we ordered - apple salad, green salad, pimento cheese & ham, fried cauliflower and strip steak were all fabulous.
Concert pre dining experience
Our table of 5 had an outstanding meal and excellent time last night. Johnny, our server, is a true professional. His knowledge of the drink and food menus is very strong. He was fun and on his game. The rest of the wait staff left us wanting for nothing as well. We had fresh water and clean plates throughout our entire chef's tasting menu experience. Drinks were made to perfection and we never waited long for those to arrive after ordering another round. We had such a good experience and can't wait to go back. It's very obvious that the service industry is struggling to be fully staffed at most places I've eaten at recently, but not last night at Dusek's. The entire restaurant looked to be running at smooth as smooth gets and we really felt like it mattered to everyone that we had a wonderful meal and nice time. Well done 👏
The food was delicious and a bit unusual. Ricotta dumpling soup with a bit of sauerkraut. Rock fish in a great tomato/ olive sauce. A terrific shot of finished rye. And, we had a wonderful waiter to give us guidance. Then, we went upstairs to Thalia Hall for a benefit concert headlined by Mavis Staples! What a wonderful holiday kickoff
Such a great cozy place to stop for dinner & drinks prior to a show at Thalia Hall. Or anytime for that matter!
Incredible & attentive service, scrumptious food & creative drinks.
It was not the best experience. From the food to the drink . It was off
The eggplant is absurd. Wonderful quick caring service. Great value as well for the quality of dishes.
Everything was AMAZING but the Buttered rolls, Tartare and Kentucky cake were to die for.
LOVED our dinner here! Everything was fabulous. The food, the wine, the service, the ambiance. If you haven’t been here, GO.
Food was fabulous! Eggplant is to die for. Pappardelle also delicious. Squid a little spicy for us. Also had avocado salad and bronzino. Butter cake is scrumptious. Excellent waitstaff--fresh plates frequently and responsive. Friendly and enthusiastic. Our first time and it was impressive. Also felt like table spread out enough for anxiety free dining.
Great dinner pre-Thalia show. Appreciated facilitated access to concert entry. Will always think of Dusek's on concert days- and will return just for the food on other occasions!
Please keep the mussels and cauliflower on the menu always! They were fabulous. Our server was knowledgeable about the food and even told us the history of the building.
We appreciated them recognizing our special occasion too!
One of the best meals I’ve had. The ribeye was absolutely phenomenal. Get the side of squash. Normally not a huge squash fan but whatever they do to this side dish is incredible. So tasty.
Our experience was great! As usual, the food was delicious!
Alex, our server was extremely arrogant and rude. He brought our ribeye and mentioned something about the lemon that I didn’t hear. My question back was, do you recommend squirting the lemon over the steak. His response…”Wow, you must have done well in school!!!”
Very rude and condescending. I won’t be going back again. We just wanted a fun night out and his arrogance and rudeness ruined it.
We had the tasting menu, and the food was mostly good, but a few of the dishes fell flat. The combination of dishes also felt incongruent and not completely thought through. Surprisingly, because we have good appetites, the quantity also felt excessive, to the point where by the last course, we weren't able to fully enjoy the remaining dishes.
Beet salad and squid were especially good; rockfish was underwhelming. Next time we would just order from main menu.
Service was great. Our server made thoughtful beverage suggestions and was overall very warm, generous, and attentive. Support staff the same.
Diana is a phenomenal waitress! It was an anniversary night from my Fiancée and I, and she made it better than could have expected. The food is out of this world, and the cocktails are superb! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Dusek’s was amazing! Our first time there and certainly NOT our last. The waitstaff was excellent. Food equally as awesome. A great place to dine!!
Great restaurant. Would love the music to be a little less loud, but that was my only area for improvement. It was a great meal and lovely warm spot to catch up with friends.
Our server was incredible!!! Such attention to detail sharing menu: recommendations/ exactly when the food should come out etc. loved it! A bit rowdy in terms of noise but great dining experience.
So glad they have survived the pandemic! We ate there last night before a concert...the new menu is creative, flavorful, and very well priced. I had the Lassen trout, which might be the best fish I have ever had at a restaurant!
Keep up the good work...acoustics could be better by the oven area..a bit hard to have conversation...
A great experience! Dusek’s is a beautiful environment. The staff was pleasant and attentive to our every need and the food was tasty and expertly prepared. We highly recommend Dusek’s and will be back in the future.
Our waitress was amazing!! Food was amazing!
Duseks has really upped their food gam since last I was there! And the service was great too!
Very nice experience. Wish I knew our server’s name because she was excellent and made us feel welcome and took great care of us. Everyone there was great.
Absolutely fantastic! Every food item was delicious, the drinks were all amazing, our server was so kind and knowledgeable, and they even brought up complimentary champagne because we went for an anniversary. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!
Awesome vibe and great food
I was looking for somewhere to go for my bf bday and was afraid this wasn’t “special” enough. But the ambiance was perfect. Nice place.
Lovely Michelin star experience
We sat outside and the food was delicious as always. Also our waitress was great and informative.
Absolutely delicious food and a beautiful spot! Can’t wait to go back.
Excellent service, and the all the food was cooked perfectly. The cocktails paired nicely with the entrees.
Everything we tried was delicious. We’re definitely going back.
Food and drinks were great. Music and service were equally as good. A bit on the dark side for me, but will definitely go back.
The dinner menu was amazing and the food was so good. A great date night or spot for homies.
Love it here.
