The Dearborn is a top-rate bistro, run by an excellent management team. They keep the menu changing seasonally. The customer service is the best in the Loop. It's also always clean and safe. I highly encourage everyone to get back to The Dearborn as soon as possible.

Great food and great service. Amy the owner stopped by and chatted with us. The Dearborn Meze plate was awesome. I had the porcelet which was so good, my companion had the paella (his first) and loved it. I’ll be back.

We went for brunch and had the bone marrow and soft scrambled eggs as well as the burger. Both were fantastic. Highly recommended.

The service was out of this world. Every restaurant needs to take serious notes about their service. The food portions could be better.

A group of us working on a community project met for lunch recently, and what a treat! Beginning with where we were seated as it was a bit more private and allowed for clear communication between us! The service was consistent, professional and very present. Finally and most importantly, the food was marvelous. The seafood chowder was nuanced and hardy, we had it with milk bread- a delicacy! The chicken soup with udon noodles was hearty and delicious. Finally, the salads were rich in proteins, plentiful and delicious as well. Coffees and teas were all plentiful and the teas were a variety. Can’t wait to return!
