Worst $55 ribeye I’ve eaten. Claimed a 16 oz ribeye. I ordered medium rare. What arrived was a very thin steak that they somehow still managed to undercook. I don’t say that lightly as I would eat rare. This was raw. When I finally got the waiters attention, he took it to the kitchen and returned with a now overcooked remainder of the steak I had been served. He didn’t wait to see if it was acceptable. The waiter did the minimum of handing us menus, take our order and bring the bill. I know masks are making life hell but we had a very hard time understanding a word he was saying. Because we had room for dessert, we thought we’d share one that was a warm bread pudding which was barely warm. The coffee I ordered would have been nice with dessert, but it arrived when we had finished.

House 406 is wonderful. The ambience is relaxed and warm. The menu is small but more than adequate with an array of delicious sounding choices.
The food is creative, delicious and very substantial. I personally also love their raspberry margarita with frozen balls of raspberry liquid slowly melting into the delectable drink.

I my experience was great. The service, food, ambience was great. Above all, the bourbon selection is phenomenal. This is one of the few places where I found Weller CYPB and other gems.

Wonderful server. Made the experience special despite covid precautions.
The tent worked well given the heaters inside on a relatively mild Chicago evening.
The food was generally good. Onion rings was not a fav. The vegetarian fettuccine was very good.

The food was ok, my pasta dish was good, my husbands steak was definitely over priced and kind of chewy, not much flavor. We were charged 11.00 for brussel sprouts that the waiter never brought. Our cocktails were delicious and very well made. We were just happy to be eating indoors in these Covid times! I would go back for cocktails and maybe an appetizer and eat somewhere else

Great food, ambience etc. The menu is limited, but choices to please everyone, from prime steaks to salmon to vegetarian options. Plus they have the Best Bar program on the North Shore - unusual beers, great cocktails, and an extensive wine list. Plus carryout wine & bourbon available

House 406 has become our go to for a nice night out. The food is always exceptionally fresh and well prepared. Their service is impeccable. Top that with one of the best selections of rare bourbons and this place is a winner.

Excellent creative and delicious higher end menu especially for the Northshore that was very well executed. This place is a gem.

Only issue is it was a cool windy evening and we ate outside. Heaters were provided, but we were still pretty cold as they were not working well, have seen others figure out better options.

As a retired chef and restauranteur I commend all food service establishments for pushing through these trying times.
As for my pre meal cocktail, I ordered a Manhatten, it was well thought out and refined.
The autumn salad was well constructed, unfortunately the salads micro-bite sized pieces made it difficult to stab with a fork.
The main dish was a 16 oz cut of prime rib. It was sub par at best. It lacked flavor and texture for the price listed. When you charge $55 for a piece of prime rib it better melt in the mouth. The Brussel sprouts that I ordered as a side were served charred, it was not written as such in the menu, but I was willing to give it a try since I love Brussel sprouts. There is a difference between charred and burnt. These were so bitter I regret not saying anything about it.
At this point we didn't even bother with dessert as we had lost our appetite.
Our service overall was not what I would consider as attentive. As soon as we received our meal our server lost interest in us. He was not engaging nor did he offer any suggestions or even attempt to up sell us on anything.
I am more than willing to help out the F&B industry in these trying times. But don't overcharge me for a mediocre meal.
Unfortunately I will not be returning to House 406.

The ambience was great and the alcohol list extensive. Did take quite some time for us to get service. Main dish (shrimp lobster pasta) had SO much garlic. But we did thoroughly enjoy the meal.
