We had a bachelorette party of 9 people , and the team at Dutch and Doc's took great care of us! Our waitress even brought us a free round of appetizers and cocktails on the house! Thank you for a great night!

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.

I loved my visit to Dutch & Doc's! I had been recommended to come here by a friend and it was great! The server was wonderful. We were the first reservation of the day for brunch and we got to sit in a cozy booth. The cinnamon donut holes are a must! They have a very generous brunch menu which I liked. It's nice to have lots of options. Highly recommend this spot.

My partner and I went here for NYE dinner hoping to have a special experience. I made 9pm reservations, we arrived 15 minutes early and the hostess neglected to inform us that we would receive a text message when our table was ready. When I'm out to dinner, I usually put my phone away which I had done that night. Luckily I checked my phone to get up for the ladies room, and they sent a text about our table being ready (albeit 10 minutes later). Table was ready at 9:15 and I didn't notice the text until 10 minutes later (strike one). Our server seemed flustered, was pleasant but didn't take the time to let us know about the special menu and always seemed rushed. We ordered dinner and I asked about ordering a half order of mac n cheese since they offer it as a full size dinner portion and my partner and I wanted to share as a side dish. Our server said that he didn't think they could do that and didn't bother to check with the manager. After ordering, I noticed on the special NYE menu that in fact there was a smaller portion of mac n cheese being offered for less (strike two). Being a special occasion, I ordered the $49 filet mignon and was excited for such a treat. Having been to many of the great steak restaurants in Chicago and ordering a filet, I was expecting the best for such a high price point. I was extremely disappointed as the filet was definitely NOT worth the $49 price tag (strike three). My dinner companion enjoyed his pasta dish, the mashed potatoes were exceptional but my caeser salad was overly dressed. I understand that this restaurant is fairly new and perhaps they were working out the kinks with service and food, but I'm lukewarm about whether or not to return. The ambience at the bar was great as it's a beautiful restaurant so maybe I would go back and sit at the bar, have drinks and try the appetizers. For a New Year's dinner, I was very disappointed and really wanted to like this place. Maybe I will give them one more chance...

Being that this is a Boka establishment I expected the service and food to be of a higher caliber. That said, the service was extremely slow for such an empty restaurant. It was as if we needed to order multiple drinks at a time. As far as the food, it wasn’t bad by any means, but certain menu items such as the brussels sprouts and apple salad came with egg when the menu had no mention it, and it came without apple. This was odd given egg is a common food allergy, so it should have been mentioned if it wasn’t a simple error in the kitchen. While they brought a new salad, most guests had already eaten half their meal, so some sort of comp would have been appreciated. Overall, while it wasn’t a bad experience it certainly wasn’t like other Boka experiences.

The location and neighborhood view is spectacular and the ambiance convivial and friendly. I was a little disappointed that the menu wasn't broader, offering more choices of appetizers and main courses. The baked brie and brussel sprouts appetizers were good, not great, and the main courses of salmon and tagliatelle with ragu also were good, but not great. Desserts of three baked cookies and chocolate sundae were better. Wine list had lots of moderately-priced selections. Based on a variety of reviews that I had seen before we went, I was expecting better. As long as your expectations are not too high, Dutch & Doc's is a good choice.

Boka group hits Wrigleyville! Yay! Ok- everything my family ordered was excellent. Wrigleyville is a tough area for a restaurant at this level of food, but we are grateful it is here. Fun restaurants around it too. The cookie griddle at the end of the meal sealed the deal. Great food and cozy restaurant with lots of little rooms and big rooms.

We went for Brunch for my husbands birthday. I didn’t realize it was more of a “green” restaurant. More low calorie foods and small menu for a brunch unfortunately. Potatoes that we got were very under cooked per my husband... he didn’t like the biscuits and gravy either. We were a bit sad on the menu. To top it the Wrigley Field was being worked on as well. Lol not that they could help that. But overall the experience was disappointing

We were excited to go for dinner at this location as we had been meaning to try it since they opened. We found the restaurant was mostly empty and the space was filled with the noise from background music and hockey game audio. The menu is not large and has few options. The food was bland/oily and greasy.

There is so much to like about Dutch and Doc's however the poor service almost overshadows all the positives. That said, the restaurant has a great atmosphere and is a beautiful space. The food is excellent and the menu has a nice mix. Our service was terrible!! EVERYTHING took FOREVER and we continually had to ask for our table to be cleared and for orders to be placed. Service needs to improve significantly.

The food was very good. We were seated immediately but not seen by a waiter for a very long time. They made up for it with free drinks and an appetizer though and were very apologetic. We were seated in the back room next to a huge very loud party which was not ideal. Would definitely go back though because overall the food was great and the atmosphere was fun.

Delightful place for a post Mecury Theater dinner. We had deviled eggs and pate for appetizers. Both were delicious. We needed more bread for the pate which our waitress brought right away. The shaved Brussels sprouts and Apple salad had the right amount of dressing and was perfect. We all had pasta entrees and were impressed with the quality of the pasta. Our waitresses was attentive and accommodating. The view of the Cubs marquee was fun. I probably would not come here during a Cubs game just because I wouldn't want to deal with the crowds but it is a wonderful restaurant

The menu has been downsized from what was showing on Open Table and the prices went up. The manager gave us the price we saw on Open Table and told us that it was due to Cubs being off season. We were very disappointed and will not return. Wine list is way overpriced...really a bad choice for dinner.

We wanted to love this experience as we have many times at other Boka Group restaurants. Unfortunately, the food and service do not live up to this companies reputation. The standout dish was the roasted chicken. It was outstanding but the ceasar salad, the pastas and the dessert were ordinary at best. The staff was friendly but attention to detail was not a priority. It feels like this restaurant is geared towards tourists who may not know there are many other options nearby that provide better food and service at better prices.

Dutch and Doc’s is not like its description on the Open Table app. I had dinner with a friend there last night, and I had expected to see an upscale restaurant with a sports theme (which made sense given its location). Instead I got an overpriced sports bar that serves badly cooked food. It’s been a while since I have been so disappointed in a restaurant, and I can’t believe Boka is associating its good name with this place. There were problems both with the starter and my entree (which I found impossible to finish). My friend and I felt we hand no privacy; we were literally seated right next to two other people and could hear every single word they said. The people who work there are professional and nice, so at least that’s good.
