Food was just ok slightly bland salad dressings
Also the main dishes lacked bold flavors and filet was not a high grade. The sides were not bad but not to brag about. The service was attentive but there was only 3 tables in the dining room so I would hope it would be
The price point for the quality was not worth it.
Good luck to you.

Food was amazing! - we ordered lamb chops along with eggplant couscous and it was so good that my bf, someone who usually don’t like eggplant, are the whole plate and craved for more!

Service was outstanding! - I put in request to let House 406 know that the dinner was to celebrate my bf’s birthday and I hoped they could add a candle on the dessert. Not only that the seating staff gave us a large comfortable table, our waiter served the cake and candle without me reminding! They are truly awesome staff who completed the perfect bday dinner. So big thank you!

Food and expletive was great. Location was a bit different walking into what appeared to be a strip mall. But that is just a location difference from my point of view. Great food, great service.

A much-needed addition to the NB restaurant scene. The food is different than other places, more interesting. Our service was perfect and the value for money is high. Try it! Especially on a nice day when you can sit outside.

House 406 has it all: an interesting, eclectic menu at various price points; delectable specials; great promotions (like half-price wine bottle nights on Mondays that includes the vast majority of their extensive stock); expertly-prepared food; conversation-friendly atmosphere, even when the restaurant gets busy; incredibly friendly, patient and helpful employees, from the hostess to the waitstaff; plenty of parking; and outdoor seating. The kitchen is also very accommodating with dietary/allergy issues.

The only nit I have is that the chairs are way too soft, so I sink way down into them. (I'm actually a thin guy). On each of my last three visits, I tried a handful of other chairs, thinking that just the one at our table had worn-out cushions, but they were all that way. The booth seating is just fine.

Nice ambiance. Delicious cocktails. Our server was knowledgeable and personable. Attentive, but not pushy. Did not feel rushed - which I'm finding more and more in many restaurants. Food was delicious.

Fine dining in Northbrook? Whooda thunk it! My wife and I enjoy dining out and we both agreed the food was top notch from beginning to end. Burger was divine, perfectly cooked with nice smoke and extra creaminess from avocado. Scallops perfectly cooked with a tasty risotto that was earthy and not overly dense. We shall return.

Service for lunch on a recent Tuesday was 'relaxed'. Had to wait for our waiter longer than I cared for. Other than that my friend and I enjoyed a tasty sandwich and hamburger in the pleasant shaded patio. I will return to this Northbrook jewel again.

Small restaurant that prepares food very well. The menu is not extensive but everyone should be able to find something they will enjoy. Everyone at our table ordered fish and everyone was very pleased with the preparation of their entree. We did not have dessert. Wine list was good. Service was attentive. All in all a very nice evening.

The lettuce on the salad was actually warm so we
sent it back and they brought us another salad that was just a little better. Main course was good. The warm was too warm.

Despite having sat someone in our party moments before we arrived, the hostess claimed she could not find our reservation. It was a very uncomfortable few minutes. We found the menu to be somewhat limited and not a good value for what was delivered. A $58 strip steak was tough and thinly sliced. The filet and lobster was a huge disappointment. It was a two-bite piece of overcooked lobster, not 4 ounces of meat. It felt like it missed the mark in almost every dish and every area. Pricey meal for four and we walked away feeling unhappy about it.

Our second time here, what a disappointment from the first time. Bruschetta appetizer soggy and inedible. The Mahi Mahi was cold, we informed the waiter who brought it to the kitchen and back to the table- it was cut in pieces and the toppings mixed in- and still cold, I didn’t eat it. The good-The waiter was personable and polite. The whiskey was a good deal. Doubt we will be back.

We love it there! Me an my daughter have now taken guests on three occasions and every single time the service and the food were spot on! Every thing from the lobster crostini to the Caesar salad to the filet or fresh fish were to die for! A little pricey, but worth it on occasion! Wish we cld splurge there more often!
