We came for sunday brunch on a gameday. We were there very early so the upstairs was empty and quiet. I'm guessing it can get pretty loud. The weather was gorgeous and the windows were open so you could see the marquis and feel a part of the bustle below. It was amazing. The food left a little to be desired. Maybe I'm just not a fan of texas toast as a platform for egg/sausage sandwiches. The kids french toast was soggy. My son loved the mac n cheese. My husband and FIL liked the avocado toast. So it was hit or miss. But I'd go back for the atmosphere for sure.

Batched cocktails even on a non-Cubs game night. For $13-15 each, handcrafted is expected. Mediocre food at best, significantly overpriced. For example: beef burger with bacon $16, make that vegetarian friendly $2 up charge. Vegetarian options are extremely limited.

My girlfriend and I went here for brunch. The breakfast sammy was delicious (stay away if you don’t like spicy food). It is a little pricey, but it’s a nice place and brand new right in Wrigleyville.

Went for brunch with friends on a Sunday - service was excellent. We requested to have a blind taste test of the impossible burger and their standard burger, which the kitchen pulled off - and the waiters were all interested and engaged on the outcome.

Great food and drinks and excellent value.

Food was amazing. I had the usual suspect Benedict and I was blown away on how great it was. Price was fair for the great quality also kids eat for free (not on game day) that's a plus. We went there on a Sunday for brunch.

Overall a great restaurant. Drinks are expensive for the area but the neighborhood is changing (which is sad). I like the place but do think the drinks are more expensive than they should be in wrigleyville.

Service was slow. Menu constantly changes on a wholesale basis and as a result, I never know if I am going to like anything on the menu and have found multiple times that there were limited things I liked. Frustrating and honestly, tired of that.

Ambiance is wonderful. Super cool space. Drinks were not the best, asked for a dirty martini with no vermouth, got vermouth. Food was ok. Steak was very under cooked. No need to go back again for us.

Service was great, but I always like the food at a Boka group restaurant, but not here. Batter on fish and ships was very good, but the tarter had garlic. I don't have problems with garlic, but the combo was very off putting. Pork sandwich, while well cooked, was lacking in flavors/contrast. I heard it was modeled after the one at Little Goat, but they should have just stuck with that one. Overall very bland Others at table who tasted it agreed. Cocktails were a plus, albeit a little small for the price.

We won't be back.

Menu is very limited.
Each chicken dish had mustard and my friend has mustard allergy.
We were seated in a back room which was noisy and full of families.
We are in our 70s and felt we were seated in family and “old people” seating.
We live in the neighborhood and were eager to try a new restaurant.
Never again.

We came here for a work/team dinner for 10 people and were sat in the semi-private room facing Clark Street and Wrigley Field. The view and design of the space was very cool which is what I've come to expect from a Boka establishment. I was a little disappointed with the service unfortunately. The room was freezing and we asked to have the heat turned up but it never happened. Our server didn't clear the plates from our appetizers until I asked him, I had an empty wine glass and coffee cup in front of me that I asked to have removed multiple times. We had one member of the team who didn't get their entree and we had to go looking for our server to get his attention which isn't acceptable in my opinion.

Waiting on a large group requires a different level of service, someone who can take control and make recommendations for the table, keep the drinks full and be available. I've come to expect more from Kevin's restaurants and am sure this was an isolated incident.

The food was good, the restaurant is very well designed and I'll definitely give it another try.

Mussels were tiny and over cooked. Strip steak was very tough. Fish and chips were good but not exceptional. Being that it is a Boka restaurant we expected more and were underwhelmed. Maybe it was just a bad night.

The "pastries for the table" part of the brunch menu was quite terrible. There were far too few and both the sticky buns and scone (yes, singular for two meals) were too hard. The mains were fantastic. I highly recommend the Serrano ham Benedict and the potato sides were fabulous. Both the atmosphere and the service was great!

I was very pleasantly surprised by Dutch & Doc's brunch for Restaurant Week! I'm used to the typical Wrigleyville restaurants/bars with dark interiors and with menus heavy on fried food and sandwiches. Dutch & Doc's interior is light, bright, clean and gorgeous -- and the food was delicious. The brunch was very generous (brunch cocktail, plate of breakfast pastries, and an entree for $24?!? unreal) for the price, and we loved our server. I will definitely be back when the weather warms up and the garage door-style windows are open!

This place is a mixed bag. I think the place itself is gorgeous. Beautiful, airy, filled with light. The food is good but overpriced for what it is: the dishes are simple, American cuisine. Nothing is fancy, there is no real creativity to any of the dishes, nothing to truly justify the prices. For example - I ordered a plain latte. They brought it to me and it was about 8 ounces and in a dirty mug (lipstick from another patron). I sent it back and they brought me another one. That 8 ounce latte cost me $6. That's insane. Additionally, it would have been nice for them to comp it for me considering they served it to me in a dirty mug. Our waitress was very nice but service was very slow. Not sure if it is always like that or if they were understaffed. Overall if you are nearby and hungry for some basic American then by all means stop hear, but don't go out of your way for it.

We went for brunch during restaurant week. Food was great. Drinks were expensive 9$ for a pint. Crying babies. I'm sure the vibe will be completely different during game days. Lots of natural light. Huge windows are perfect for people watching. Large bar. Seating was comfortable.

A disappointing experience for my wife and I on a friday evening. The food was overly salty and lacked any real imagination. The service from Zack was exceptional, the bright spot of the evening.

Additionally, our experience had both my wife and I indisposed for the evening and following morning. Something was clearly amiss as this was our only shared dining experience for the day.

Their about us on the menu says it all: in the warm glow of the marquee at the friendly confines. During baseball season this place is packed! Good food, good drink and a great location. During the off season it is a great place to take a Cubs fan, or any human being for that matter, to a spectacular restaurant in a very cool location.
