    I have been here several times. Food is outstanding and service is excellent. My favorites for the night were the Lobster Crostini appetizer and the Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad (dressing was delicious). I feel like it is such a treat to dine here.

    The food was just average. The portion of scallops(4) in their main dish was small for $50. We were sitting near the window and it was chilly even though it was only 40 outside. The restaurant is loud, so be prepared to talk loud enough to hear each other. The service was very good. Overall, not good enough to recommend.

    Excellent food, everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. There’s a real master of their craft chef behind this food, it’s exceptional and memorable. The beer selection was incredible and I’ve found my new favorite brewery in Chicago. A++ across the board.

    After hearing some positive things about House 406 - my wife and I had a date night with another couple. We were very impressed with every element. The restaurant itself is located in a non-descript strip mall but has a great clean but upscale vibe. Our waiter Scott (big guy with a beard) was one of the best we’ve had in the north shore! He was helpful in descriptions and recommendations, patient with any modifications, as well as funny - he absolutely added to and enhanced our evening. The food was also stellar! Everything is made in house with as many local ingredients as possible (e.g. all the meat comes from local small farms). The lobster crostini was a+ as was the burger, scallops and risotto, and skirt steak. Then desserts…save room for dessert! The pumpkin olive oil cake and peanut butter chocolate lava cake were both 10/10! We will be back!

    This was such a lovely dining experience. We were on the outdoor patio on a warm Fall evening, so the breeze was lovely. I was thinking, though, that festive lights on the patio would have been the perfect addition. The food was excellent. We split a few dishes, and across the board, the food was delish.

    We enjoy our experience every time we dine at House 406. There is something for everyone even though their menu is small. Each item is prepared impeccably including their raspberry margarita. Along with our favorite server, House 406 is always a win.

    Not a pleasant experience. We left halfway through our meal due to the rude and obnoxious guests seated 2 tables away. They were exceeding loud and one man was bellowing (practically yelling) throughout our short visit. Yet none of the staff seemed to notice or perhaps even care. I realize the place isn’t billed as “fine dining” but you have a right to expect a certain amount of decorum at any restaurant. A manager came over after we’d paid our check and offered to move us. I wasn’t even remotely interested in staying in this disappointing place. In the hospitality business you are expected to have your head on a swivel and manage the ambiance of the room. This place has all the ambience of a truck stop diner. The food - what we ate of it was only so-so.

    We went for our 34th anniversary. They greeted us with champagne when we were seated which was very nice. We loved the food - everything was delicious. Great cocktails and my husband had the octopus (special) and I had the horseradish Parmesan crusted whitefish and we enjoyed them both very much! We did have an early reservation which worked out well as it was quieter and felt more private. A lovely evening - we will be back!

    What a GEM! Great wine selection, extensive whiskey selection if that’s your thing. The menu was outstanding. Great variety with seasonal produce. Highly recommend the lamb lollipops and whitefish. Our sever Scott also deserves a shout out, he was fantastic! The environment was so welcoming, beautifully decorated, can’t say enough good things about this restaurant.
