Red Door is a restaurant and bar located in Chicago, Illinois. The dining room has a classic vibe with dark wood, warm colors and simple decor. However, it is the large outdoor patio space, a rarity in the large city, that is most popular with frequent visitors. The full bar at Red Door features a variety of great wine, craft beer and spirits.
Chef Troy Graves strives to create flavorful dishes sure to please any customer. Munch on bacon wrapped artichokes or truffle fries if you are just looking for something light. Share items chicken confit poutine or avocado toast with the whole table. For dinner, enjoy the kimchi reuben, spaghetti carbonara or the hangar steak for a delicious entree.
We had reservation for a party of 8 for Sunday Brunch and they were ready for us; seated right away. Staff was amazing, outdoor dog friendly patio is a super plus! Delicious food, great portions for price point! The pork belly, it is one of the best thing on the menu, get it... you will not regret!!! Spicy fried chicken and waffle, great balance of flavors. The chicken breast was juicy and tender with the correct amount of fried goodness!
Great team from the host, bartenders, chefs and to our waitress patty. Rare date night for us and we loved our time dining outside. Ginger beer on tap is excellent!
The food and atmosphere at Red Door is amazing. I have never been disappointed with a meal here. There patio seating is great for a nice summer night and the service is phenomenal!
Delicious food, but at the prices they offer for the portion size I felt like the place was very over-priced. I got the prime rib melt, plenty of food, but the rest of my group got different meals, the avocado toast looked very interesting and creative but the portions were meager. The plus side was both the bar area and outdoor patio were beautifully designed and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. Our server was very laid back and friendly, hardly in sight but would check in on us every so often and if we ever needed any help she was no more than 5 feet away. I never felt rushed to eat my food and leave, nor did I feel ignored by the staff. More so a place for a light dinner and drinking than a full dinner date.
Red Door is easily my top pick for brunch in Chicago. Between the incredible food, awesome drink selection, and friendly wait staff, it's nearly impossible to go wrong!
Service was awful, took 40 minutes for our food (salad and a burger) this made us late to our show. Staff wasn't apologetic and were rude.
Food was delicious, but service was absolutely awful. Took several hours to get through a few courses, we frequently had empty water and wine glasses and had to get up and find servers to get their attention.
Didn't think to much about it. Ended up being pretty great. Great food, excellent craft cocktails, more than excellent beer list. Looking forward to my next visit.
Still not sure what qualifies as a Gastro-Pub, but I found Red Door while searching for a Gastro -Pub and I must like them. I was having trouble finding a parking spot, and the Host came outside and pointed me in the right direction. Very helpful service. Efficient but not too pushy. Food was great! We split a pasta appetizer and then split a Burger. Very well prepared on both accounts. Strong beer list.
Looking forward to going back when we can see it in the summer.
The new back room is awful. Food lacked flavor. Moscow mules were still amazing. I've been here 5 or 6 times but unfortunately Red Door has lost my business after this past experience.
