    We ordered the fried chicken the burger and the ice cream sandwich. The chicken was over cooked and the sauce on the chicken is overly sweet. The ice cream is smoked and the smoke while interesting is overpowering not complimentary.

    What a delight The Dearborne continues to be. After all of the time in Chicago’s Loop the restaurant continues to reinvent itself in all fabulous ways. Obviously the vibe and decor bring a great energetic vibe, but the food - always on point! Can’t say enough good things about the restaurant.

    The food we ate was good. However, the menu is very small. I could hardly put together a salad and entree. The only salad was the caesar. It was very good. However, very large and filling for a side salad. Suggestion: Have more typical items on the menu, such as, hambuger, chicken sandwiches, other kinds of salads.....

    The place is very welcoming. If you would like a more quiet table I advise sitting not at the bar area. We sat down and there was a very loud crowd right behind us and we asked to me moved and the wait staff was very nice to accommodate us and it was like night and day. Our service was really slow. Took a while to get a new waiter and then after we placed our drink orders it took longer than we hoped. The only saving grace was the food as it was excellent. Would come back but service has to be better

    Amazing, as usual. Grabbed a quick dinner before a play down the street. Food and service was great (get the chicken appetizer) - asked for and received a quiet booth. Got the fish and chips - also amazing. We arrived a half hour before our reservation and were seated within just a few minutes. EXCELLENT experience!

    Nice breakfast spot open a Sunday when many restaurants are closed in the financial district. We had fish and chips and it was spectacular. Huge piece of moist cod lightly battered. Fries and coleslaw great too. It’s $24 which seems a bit pricey but it delicious indeed. Place is a little worn on the inside but one can get over that with excellent food and service!

    Excellent food and unique menu. We sat across from each other with other two-somes lined up next to us in a row in that seating area. Need to wait for some other seating which they had plenty. That was fine with us, but not for private conversations. Waitress was prompt even though they had a full house. This is our third time there and will definitely go back again. Also, very convenient to theaters.

    The food and service were absolutely wonderful! The server was very helpful with our indecisiveness and very knowledgeable of the menu as one of us has a food allergy. The food came out looking amazing and tasting fabulous. None of us were disappointed with our choices and cannot wait to go back for another great dining experience.

    We had a really nice dinner before the Opera. Service was attentive without rushing us. Room is nice with floor to ceiling view of the street. It was nice to see some life again! We ate a lot of seafood and we are kinda picky about it but was fresh and served up hot.
