I love lunching at the Dearborn. This time I had the grilled cheese, caramelized onion and pear sandwich with a side salad. The sandwich is delicious as the flavors blend into slightly sweet heavenly bites. The salad was crisp, more than greens, and prepared with care. For dessert I chose the in-house made chocolate cherry ice cream. My advice: save room for the ice cream or sorbet. They are spectacular!
PS They are very attentive to food allergies/sensitivities. If you suffer as I do, you can be comfortable knowing "they've got you"!

Great location. Great staff. Two salads, one cup of soup, and two teas. $63.00 plus tip. Food was good, but not sure it was worth the price.

Cool vibe, good food but small portions for the price. Would go back and sit at bar for some cocktails and appetizers next time. We went for Mother’s Day dinner so it was with the $$!

Great food in a beautiful dining area. Only complaint was their website menu was not current to what they had on offer in the restaurant. All around an excellent choice for brunch!

Misleading menu names such as poutine and Dutch apple pancakes. Some items were very expensive for seemingly no reason, like a side of bacon for $9. Music was loud and confusing process to order coffee- iced coffee was room temperature. Pancakes were burned as well. Not worth the price

Our server was so nice and professional , the salmon could’ve been seasoned better but it made do with the sauces. The music could’ve been a little more urban as well

Food was good. Fish and chips looks huge but it's a lot of breading.
Manhatten was solid. Service was great!

We were greeted warmly even though we arrived a little early. Promptly sat and brought beverages. Our main server was very friendly and gave good tips on things to do during our maiden stay in Chicago. Throughout the meal a variety of staff checked in with us and assisted in providing elements of the meal. They worked as a professional cohesive hospitality team! And the food was great!!!

Great attentive staff and nicely done restaurant. Just found the music to be very very loud and did not fit the restaurant. Heard the same song multiple times, food was a bit overpriced but overall was a good experience. Not dying to go back but also wouldn’t be against trying it again

We sat outside. Service was very slow, and the tables were not cleaned. One wipe with a wet tissue turned it black.

I’ve heard great things about this place, but after visiting I wasn’t impressed. I seen this place on a chicago tv show and I was was able to catch a table one night. We tried the maple glazed buttermilk friend chicken, which literally came out in 5 min. Which couldn’t have been freshly made. The chicken had potential if it was made fresh, but the ambience was pretty cool. Place is really nice overall. I don’t have to go back anytime soon tho.

I like the Dearborn because it offers some meals that are not found elsewhere. They are well prepared and flavorful. Some dishes have too many carbs but I try to avoid those. The owners care about their customers.

I will say the menu or at least the Mains were limited. However I ordered the prosciutto pizza and got the Hot Girl Summer cocktail and all of it was amazing. Can’t remember our server name unfortunately but service was great as well.

We started out trying the 3 different prosciuttos and they were out of this world. Then we had the Roasted Rohan Duck and Fresh Fish. Both dishes were excellent.

My best friend & I enjoyed a girls night at The Dearborn. The drinks were delicious as was the burrata (you can’t go out and NOT order burrata).

We had the filet with Brussels, both cooked perfectly.

Dessert was amazing and worth every bite!

The delightful server, manager, and ambiance made for a wonderful evening. We will definitely be back!

The manager talked to every table except ours which I assumed was because of our age. We were probably the youngest in the bar and were assumed to be bad patrons. Food and server were good but the vibe was too touristy and the manager put me off
