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.

My friend and I went on a Sunday a little before brunch ended. We were able to get our table right away. Food was delicious, ambiance was very nice. Our waitress was very helpful and nice. We had a great experience.

Our second time at Dutch & Doc's and it was excellent both times! Loved the Breakfast Sammy, coffee and small donuts. Others loved the burger and the avocado toast with smoked salmon. Great food, atmosphere and service - what more could you want?

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.

The menu is very misleading and my server did not make up for it. I asked the server about the Apple and Brussel Sprout salad, wondering what the ratio was between brussel sprouts and apples, assuming it would be mainly shaved brussel sprouts and some small garnish of shaved or diced apples. The server confirmed that, saying that there are some apples, but mostly brussel sprouts. What I received was about 95% apples...there had to be at least 2 whole apples in this salad. There were hardly any brussel sprouts at all. I was extremely disappointed, as this was not what I thought I had ordered, and was not a salad to me at all. It also was not satisfying. I could have just eaten two plain apples and it would have been the same. I was upset, because not only was it not a good dish, but I was still hungry. For a $23 salad, this should not be the case. I told my server that the dish was either misleading, or it was made improperly, and that I was disappointed, and he simply said “oh, sorry to hear that” and went on his merry way. After seeing that I basically left an entire cut up apple on my plate (having already eaten the other one), and hearing that I was disappointed that the dish was misleading and had no brussel sprouts, my server didn’t offer to bring something else instead, or to comp the dish, nothing. I felt it was distasteful and I left with a bad feeling about the restaurant.

We’ve been to Dutch and Doc’s a few times now- before a game, for weekend brunch and on a weeknight with the kids. It’s become a new favorite in the neighborhood. The space is beautiful, the service is fantastic and the kids love their clean plate club. The food is straightforward and well-prepared. We’ll be going back again and again.

I was very disappointed by the food and the service. We went for the family night on Sunday for spaghetti and meatballs. It was served family style and there was not enough food. For 5 of us, there were 2 regular size pieces of garlic bread cut in half for example. The meatballs were funky as I believe they were seasoned with taco seasoning. It also took us 90 minutes from start to end with all of eating the spaghetti special. Way too long with kids. Overall, great location, but I would not recommend beyond that.

Menu is a bit limited and mostly heavy Chicago foods. Starters and share plate items were expensive (the same cost as an entree), which hindered our group from trying more items (budget and portion reasons). Cocktails were delicious. Decor is nice and it's nice to have street side seating plus the area in the back that is kind of cozy. The salad I had was decent but a bit bland and lots of roughage (brussels salad) - and I didn't get much of the mustard dressing until the very end so it didn't quite come together. Entree serving sizes varied as well; one of our group finished his food in minutes where it took others twice as long due to size/quantity. Server was attentive. Quality of ingredients was good. Overall decent.

The food was unique and amazing. We tried a few apps along with main dishes and the chef clearly knows their way around flavors! I will say it ain’t cheap but a nice splurge for a higher end place in the neighborhood which was something we really needed. The deviled eggs were great as well as the malt aioli fries which we shared as the portion was large. I had the chicken which had amazing flavor and they were able to accommodate another person with dairy allergies which was nice.
