Wonderful!! Everything was great about it!! Will be coming back again!!!
Excellent food and service! Thank you to Jay for great service and your recommendations
Great location(just steps from Goodman Theatre). Excellent service by waitstaff along with really good food with generous portions. I highly recommend the tomato bisque as well as the fish and chips(that beat Bobby Flay). All in all a wonderful dining experience.
We have eaten at the Dearborn several times and haven't been disappointed. Service was great, drinks were good, food was good.
Excellent food, service, and beautiful restaurant! Perfect location for pre or post theatre!!
GREAT service! Manager even stopped by our table to thank us for coming in. Had such a nice time. Will definitely be back.
Love the ambience and decor of the restaurant. Looks very small from the outside but inside offered a lot of seating. Fast service and great food! We will definitely come back!
The Dearborn is one of my favorite places for lunch in the city. This time we both had the special grilled cheese with caramelized onion and pear. We finished our lunches with the house made pistachio ice cream and the house made plum gelato. I have a rule: save room for a scoop of the special ice cream! Service was most attentive. Care is paid to allergies and food sensitivities. Customers come first at the Dearborn.
Best roasted brussel sprouts I've ever had! Market salad was generous size but just okay in terms of taste. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Our server was just terrific - super attentive and sweet - and we were his only table outside on the sidewalk. I would eat there again!
The service was outstanding and the staff very accommodating! Arik was a really attentive server who was easy to speak with and gave great recommendations. The food was excellent!
We were celebrating that someone in our party finished the marathon! Joe our server made our night. The food was great but the service was incomparable. Thanks Joe for making our night extra special!
The food was outstanding, the fish and chips were cooked perfectly crisp on the outside while moist on the inside. Service was great very attentive but not overwhelming
Horrible reception. We had reservations, arrived early and asked to sit at the bar until our table was ready. The woman said she'd get us, which she NEVER did. While we were ordering drinks and apps at the bar, the crew changed and our 2nd bartender ignored us. When we asked about our table, she asked if we'd checked our phones. We asked why, and she said that's how we'd know -- we'd get a text, even though the reception folks said they'd get us. Then we were sat in a noisy, draft, unpleasant table. Food was fair, but fo what we received, overpriced. Would never go back. Truly the left hand had no idea what the right hand was doing. Irritating for a restaurant with their prices.
Great service by Nico
The Dearborn is our absolute favorite place to take people who come to visit Chicago. It is so hard to find non-chain non-touristy food in the Loop, and this place far surpasses anything else you could get within a six block radius. The atmosphere is trendy and relaxed, the waitstaff are funny and friendly, and the food is truly to die for. Definitely try the brussel sprouts and, if it’s still on the menu, the orange-pecan fritters are the best dessert I’ve ever had. Easy to access via transit, and no matter the time of day you go, you can’t go wrong.
The food, the wine selecting, and the service was excellent. The only complaint I had was the fact that we were early and the refused to seat us early even though the place had many open tables. Not really sure why the hostess decided to make us wait 10 minutes.
Sunday Brunch a The Dearborn is second to none. On our second visit, we had the famous Fish and Chips and the Egg and Avocado BLT with a shared side of Crispy Brussels Sprouts. They were delicious!
The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. Taylor did a great job taking care of us and allowed us time to listen to the live music coming from the bar area.
The Dearborn is a must every time we visit the city. Looking forward to our next visit!
Delicious food, charismatic employees, book a table through @opentable for your next night out! Back story I’ve been having an eye on @thedearbornchi about a month so it was on my to-do list. Booked a table for 3 a couple weeks ago for a pre musical dinner with my girls @anabelslove and @katyas10. From the outside the establishment strikes you as a home town bar, the windows were open to the street, completely taking advantage of the beautiful weather we are having in Chicago right now. We walk in are greeted promptly by a gentleman in a powder blue suit, right away I knew the service was going to be fantastic. He was welcoming and inviting, he led us through the first dining area, the bar and we were sat in the back dining area. Perfect seating with reduced noise level compared to the front of the house, great for catching up with friends. Our waiter was Nikola, he was amazing to say the least! Wonderful service, all food ordered was brought out at the same time, drinks were topped off at all times and he was great to strike a conversation with. Nikola really make us feel at home. Food was a 10/10. Ambiance 10/10. Service 10/10. Parking 10/10.
Food Ordered: Midwest Fried Chicken, Fish & Chips *As seen on Bobby Flay*, Crispy Brussels Sprouts.
Drink Ordered: Zardetto Prosecco (Veneto, Italy), Morningstar.
4 of us ate 4 different meals and they were all delicious! I had the special which was a filet and got a side of mashed ootatoes which came in a small cast iron pan. Then we had an absolutely amazing espresso martini and the orange truffles for dessert.
Also our waiter Michael was superb. Will definitely be back!
Wow! Had a wonderful lunch! We had the salmon gravlax plate - gorgeous presentation and delicious! Also had the fish and chips - again great presentation and tasted great! Our server was very attentive and the restaurant had a wonderful ambiance. We’ll be back!
The Mezze plate with house made pita was AMAZING!! All the food was great. The service was on point. Overall I highly recommend!
I had fish and chips. Fish was cooked well but lacked flavor. Midwest fried chicken was delicious.
This is a great place to eat! Menu had many different choices, I settled on the duck breast and it was delicious. Wait staff was great. Sommelier was friendly and made good suggestions. I would definitely return here if I was in Chicago again.
We headed to The Dearborn before going to see a show at the theater. The staff was attentive, the food came quickly, and everything tasted delicious. I will definitely be returning.
Dearborn was good. Walked past many times, and the food always looked good. Got seated when we arrived, but it took our waiter a full 10+ minutes to come over. We were seeing a show after so we were a bit hyper about getting started with the evening. After that, things went smoothly. Food was good, drinks were better. It's kinda hard - it wasn't bad enough to not recommend, but it wasn't great either. I will recommend - maybe this experience was a fluke.
The Parker house rolls are my absolute fave and the fried chicken in maple with homemade hot sauce is a great combination!!
Excellent service and great food!
Server was great and food was good as usual
Service was great. Rolls were awesome. Will go back
The market salad is awesome!!!
Felt very Covid-safe in their outdoor seating area with heat lamps for the Fall.
Great burger, and amazing truffle fries.
Met old coworker for lunch. Delicious food and excellent service. Always a great place.
Food was basic. Nothing special at all. I don't mind paying good money for good food. But this was nothing to write home about. Also waiter told me there was a childrens menu with a cheese pizza. Turns out its just their regular size cheese pizza at thier regular price. An 8 year with a whole pizza is a too much. Just another tourist trap
We have lived in the Chicago area for thirteen years and fell in love with The Dearborn when it opened several years ago. It was a staple for before Mar 2020 and we were elated to return tonight to a vibrant scene where the cocktails and food are as delectable as ever. This week we move back to NC and made The Dearborn our farewell venue for our last night out. Truly a unique comforting experience right in the heart of the Loop.
The ceasar sald was mediocre and quite expensive
The Dearborn never disappoints. Good food. Great cocktails. Friendly servers.
I loved my Curry Chicken salad and the music was GREAT...especially since we were in an adjoining room. One person in my party ordered the omelet with brie cheese and said she was disappointed in the small amount of cheese included.
Great experience, server gave great options for vegetarian food.
Limited dinner menu. Was looking for some sandwiches besides burgers. Brussels sprouts OK have had a lot better. Burger was good.
We had an incredible dinner and will be back very soon!
