We always come to the Dearborn when we see a show. Service is excellent. Brussels Sprouts were very good. We’ve had the chicken and fish/chips before and both were delicious again.

Delicious food, great service! I've been a few times, and each experience has been fantastic. Prices are reasonable, especially with respect to quality. Their cocktail menu has some interesting options and seems to rotate (Bring back that lovely infused Catan Pisco drink!). I also enjoy supporting a woman-owned local business with a diverse staff. Highly recommend!

Went for lunch one day and enjoyed the fish and chips, which we upgraded the fries to truffle and Parmesan fries and added a side of the Everthing Parkerhouse rolls with Boursin cream cheese. Both were so delicious! The fish was super crispy and crunchy and the fries were super delicious with the addition of truffle oil and Parmesan! The Parkerhouse rolls with Everything seasoning were over the top and then you spread the Boursin cream and we were in foodie heaven. The service was impeccable! Loved it so much we came back the second day for brunch and enjoyed their fried chicken with a side of Baker’s bacon! Again the service was impeccable! We will be returning the next time we’re in Chicago!

Food and Service were outstanding! Had the Fish & Chips that "Beat Bobby Flay" and it did not disappoint. Server was super attentive and management did their table touch to make sure all was well. Always enjoy coming here, especially before the theater.

We think the attending staff can do better and can be attentive to guest. The busser (done cleaning and organizing the table back) did a great job for he was more attentive than the one who take orders. However we are pleased to get a bday card that you put it on (thank you), food was great indeed it gives our palate sophisticated taste. The ambience is majestic and romantic so classic and modern type which we love it though.

The food was delicious, service great. We really enjoyed the specials. The only downside was that we were seated next to another table for 2 that was so close we may as well have been dining WITH them. What is normally a bonus- the fact that the restaurant isn’t terribly loud and you can easily hear your own conversation- also meant you heard the peoples next to you and vice versa. We didn’t let that spoil our evening though- enjoyed the night.

Good atmosphere. Noise level was satisfactory. Food was average to below average for the price.

Found it hard to believe the waiter was telling the truth when he attempted to sell me “the last steak” (managers special) and it was only 5:55 PM.

Overall recommendation would be to try somewhere else.

We had a wonderful experience at The Dearborn. We were sat in a beautiful corner table. Our food was delicious and the service was amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us a free dessert and a hand written note. It was an unforgettable experience.
