As usual the management went above and beyond to move us from a big table (there were only two of us) next to a large loud party in the bar area to a lovely quieter table for two in the back (red room) area. Couldn’t have been happier. Wait staff was as always wonderful.
Perfect pre-theatre spot, as well as, any night of the week! The food is magnificent, as is the service and vibe. Highly recommended!
It was my wife and I's first visit, we sat at a high boy in the bar. We were going to a show and were a bit late for the reservation. The host , after checking vax creds which was very seamless, sat us right away. Jay the server was welcoming and knowledgeable. He was attentive but never pushed our rushed us. Every cocktail and dish was great. There were two different managers that stopped by the table. One very kindly guided me to the restroom and the other was clearing plates and working the room. The whole place had a very positive vibe and we will most certainly be back again.
Always a good choice prior to the theatre. So glad you're still open. We love to have dinner with you.
Stopped at the Dearborn at 5 before seeing a show at 7 pm. With the 1.5 hour table hold, timing was perfect for a couple of drinks and a relaxed dinner and We had a great table at the bar.
Our waiter was fine but both my partner and I comments that we felt like the staff was trying to turn over the table quickly. We easily would’ve been finished by 5:45 unless we forced ourselves to slow down the pace. Additionally, out waiter brought the check unprompted at 5:50 without checking to see if we wanted another drink (which we did and did order). Overall it was just a meh experience — for the amount of money spent, to feel rushed isn’t a pleasant dining experience.
Pedro, server, brings the dining experience to life.
The service was great and the food was delicious!
I will definitely be going back.
The service was quick but the burger lacked flavor Salt and pepper on the table was the only saving grace. The ice cream cookie was fabulous. Highly recommended
Outstanding food and great service. Our server, Victor, was awesome.
Wonderful duck dish included appetizer, salad, and reasonably sized portion of duck breast. While the price seems steep, for $50, you get a complete meal. We appreciated our server's suggestions for wine, all reasonably priced. Definitely a place to go before the theater
Overall nice dining experience. We have extremely little interaction with our waiter, who came by once to get our drink and food order and once to deliver our check. Other than that, we never interacted with him (not even to check and see how our food was or if we wanted anything else). The food was good, and I am definitely interested in trying more food on the menu. Also- its such a cute restaurant with a nice vibe. It's a great place to go on a date.
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.
Theatre night. Restaurant is 1 block to the Cadillac palace theatre
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!
Great Brunch with fantastic live music!!
The waiter was super friendly, and they gave my mom a lovely card for her birthday. The food was fantastic, service was quick and ambiance was amazing.
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!
Delicious mushrooms Flatbread but cocktails were bit pricey for size and quality
The food was absolutely amazing and the staff were the best. Our waiter, Cooper made our experience so amazing. He made great suggestions and was so attentive and funny. Joey the bartender was also amazing. Great drinks and great service. Can not wait to go back
Great Fish and chips!
Had a great dinner celebrating a Birthday
Great food and service. Safe dining. Comfy booth.
Our server was really nice, the food was amazing and the ambiance was beautiful.
As usual, the food was outstanding. The service was perfect… thank you Victor for taking such great care of us!! We had a lovely evening!
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.
Nice celebration with a personal card and dessert
Great food, and INCREDIBLE STAFF!
Wonderful , as always! 🤗 They are the best fish and chips/fries in town ! Yummy and Fluffy not greasy !!
Server was kinda judgmental.
Good experience, Taylor the waiter was nice, nice ambience
The staff-reception & wait were very courteous & pleasant. Service & food were good. There was music, but it was not too loud & was enjoyable.
Excellent food, flavors and service. Much more expensive than it used to be.
Perfect lunch spot before the Frozen musical with daughter. Great atmosphere and food/service were wonderful. Definitely would recommend.
GREAT. I love the professionalism and the care shown.
Our server was wonderful (unfortunately can’t remember his name). Midwest chicken was amazing as well as the carrot cake.
The waiter was warm and friendly! We had a great chat about living in Chicago.
The fish and chips, for this the restaurant is known for, was very good, highly recommended.
Overpriced for quality of food and the loud hip hop music was very distracting.
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.
Great food, nice atmosphere! I would definitely recommend visiting!
