Great gem of a restaurant! Food was great. Steak cooked to perfection and the lobster was cooked perfectly. My wife usually has to send the lobster back for being over cooked, but not here! The only thing that wasn't perfect was the couscous. Other than that a great time.

Halibut was excellent! My husband had the Frenced Beef Ribeye that he said was very flavorful but a little tough. They have an unconventional Raspberry Margarita that is original and delicious; it has raspberry liquor-infused ice cubes, instead of crushed ice.

Ordered the special at 6:30 to find out it was sold out. My guest said that the mushrooms which were a side dish didn’t taste right – sweet. Not very many vegetarian dishes. In fact, only one and that was under seasoned.
I have been at the restaurant several times, and always enjoyed the food. This time, generally speaking, it was not up to par.

Prices are high!! $18 burger ordered medium rare was delivered medium well, fries have a funny flavor. Shrimp flatbread good, salads fine. We sat outside so it was quiet. Our server was probably the best I’ve had anywhere. Even though we were last group by far (long time friends on a night out), we were NEVER hurried and and the staff was so gracious. For that reason alone I may go back.

One of our favorite restaurants closed about a year ago and we were looking for a replacement. House 406 was recommended and we had our birdie dinners there. Outstanding food and ambiance. The cocktails were wonderful as well. Thank you for a great meal and memorable evening.

I’ve been here twice now in the last month for celebrations and both times the food was incredible. The first visit was inside and this past visit we sat outside on the patio. Different vibes for sure, but both were relaxed, cozy and comfortable. The lobster tail is the best lobster I’ve ever had—I ordered it both times because it was incredible, as was the filet, potatoes and veggies with it. I previously had the cream of mushroom soup (so yummy!), and my SO had the vegetarian French onion soup. It is uncommon to have that option for a vegetarian and he was delighted by how delicious it was. Overall, terrific food, great attentive staff, fun vibe. We had Scott serving us this week and he was fantastic and fun. Will definitely be repeat customers, and I’m so glad Northbrook has this wonderful spot! Jen the owner is doing a wonderful job!

We went to House 406 for Mother's Day brunch. It was our first experience dining there. The food was exceptional and a service was very friendly and professional.

We will be meeting out of town friends there in 2 weeks. We look forward to House 406's dinner menu!

2nd time at this restaurant and we were all blown away by the quality of the cocktails and dinner. Went with another couple on a busy Saturday night and had a very nice experience. It started with the hostess getting us cocktails since the bar was jammed. The drinks were added to our dinner tab so that was seamless. Dinner was really very good. Learned that the "406" in the name is a reference to Montana from the woman who owns the restaurant. That's why the meat courses are highlighted. I had salmon while the others had beef. All was very good and everyone commented on how happy they were with their meals. My wife's mushrooms that came with her strip steak were my highlight. Only weakness was a quiet and not very helpful waiter. That said, we'll be back.

The food was not good. The server dropped off my French onion soup and said, “it’s very hot” when really the bowl was hot but the soup was not. We ordered the shrimp & cilantro flatbread and it was basically pizza with shrimp on it. Had red sauce, no cilantro and was not very good. It was not as advertised. The crab cakes were ok but not hot. The service was good and our server felt bad the food was not good. I had high hopes but this was over priced and needs work.

First time ever at the restaurant and was very impressed. The food was really quite good. I had the crab cakes and they were some of the best in the area with more crab than usual and really good flavor. My husband had the white fish and the portion was plentiful. Like the warm home made rolls served with appetizers. We did not have any desert. Drinks were good but not great. Service was good. Great place to meet another couple and enjoy the food and conversation. Will definitely try again!

This place is beautiful and the service, when there, is great. But the servers are like the restaurant - just “missing” at the times and places when you’d want them to deliver. Menu looks great - food is bland and lacking. Servers are delightful but seldom around. This place has potential - just needs a bit more effort to get it to where it could be.

I enjoyed the food and drinks a lot. However, our server was almost condescending in his remarks to our table, possibly because it was a younger group of women? Our server was Scott. His attitude definitely took away from the experience.

It's a nice, relatively small, upscale restaurant and the food is quite good. Enjoyed Mushroom soup, mussels, Horseradish crusted whitefish, etc. The problem was our waiter who seemed to be rushing us to place our orders (and perhaps not understanding English very well) but most of all - THE NOISE level is just too much. Maybe we're just getting too old - just don't feel like shouting to communicate.

I always go for the Lobster Crostini, One of the best, most decadent appetizers there is. If they made it a main course I would order that too. My wife had the mushroom soup w/a drizzle of truffle oil in it. Very good! Main courses were the Seafood Risotto for my wife and I had the Brisket/Short Rib Burger. Risotto had delicious flavor but I thought the rice was a little to al dente. Burger was delicous, great combo of the 2 meats.
