    All our food was mediocre at best. The whitefish was overcooked and SMOTHERED in the lemon cream sauce…which was more like thick goo. Salad dressing was pleasant, but flavoring was undetectable. A forgettable experience altogether.

    Very enjoyable evening. The drinks were just right. The food was delicious. We had the lollipop lamb chops for appetizer. I would order those for a main course. Scrumptious! One of us had the parmesan encrusted whitefish. The other had the Hawaiian halibut. Both entries were prepared well and presented very beautifully. Thank you for a nice evening.

    Our food was great but service was lacklustre. Our waiter disappeared, and no one even filled our water. Also, the hostess was dressed very inappropriately and unprofessionally. She looked like a teenager in a skimpy beach outfit. We were shocked that a restaurant would allow an employee to wear that attire.

    We had a wonderful anniversary celebration at House 406. It was our first time there and we really enjoyed the food. We were treated to a tasting of Champagne because it was our anniversary. And, they had soft shell crab on the menu! What a delicious surprise! A very nice special occasion restaurant!

    There were four of us and everything that we had was absolutely excellent, our waiter was amazing, don’t remember his name but he had a beard. The raspberry margarita he suggested is the best I’ve ever had. The Lobster Crostini is to die for and the Lamb lollipops also just as good

    This was our first time at the restaurant and everything was great. Scott our waiter was awesome and he answered all questions we had and had a great attitude and personality. The raspberry martini was fantastic and the food was delicious. This restaurant is on our list of favorite places to dine. We came here for my husband’s birthday and he just loved it. We can’t wait to go back!

    Our first time dining at House 406. We took my 10 year old granddaughter for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent and service was very good. Noise level was a little high even though we were outside. This was probably because we were under an aluminum portico and a table of 3 senior couples were speaking loudly for all in their party to hear.

    We ate at House 406 on a Wednesday night, so it was fairly empty. Our service was great and the food was amazing! The horse radish crusted whitefish didn’t disappoint and the carrot cake was delicious.

    For casual outdoor dining, albeit overlooking a parking lot, a nice add to our repertoire . Limited menu, limited flavor creativity, but solid fare fairly priced. Extensive and reasonably priced wine and spirits list.

    We returned to House 406 after not having been there for a while, because it was a very nice day and we were able to sit outside on their patio out front. Service was very good and the menu has a number of interesting and reasonably priced items. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star the whole way was that the special halibut (which was delicious) was very expensive, comparatively, and they were out of the featured white at our early dining hour on a Saturday. We really enjoyed the halibut and the generous shaved Brussels sprout salad that we were able to share. Also I was really interested to see that most of their regular menu is listed as gluten free! I would definitely recommend it and plan to return.
