House 406 Ratings and Reviews

A true neighborhood gem tucked into a small spot in a strip center in Northbrook. The owner is always on site to make sure everything is perfect.
The food is over the top delicious.
Highly recommended. Stop by once a month to see what's new. Prices fair. ad crusted whitefish and it was great. Had salads, soups and they are always very tasteful.
You gotta go

House 406 has been maintaining high level now after so-so opening. Lucky with being able to use outdoor seating in the middle of October, we took full advantage. Food was good, just a tad shy of really outstanding. Short rib with mashed potatoes were particularly good.

The food was as good or better than any place on the North Shore. Creative menu, great cuts of meat and fish with a strong wine list.
Only wish is that we had more time to try more things!
We'll be back soon though.

The service was good although our server didn't really seem to know much about the food or drinks. We always ask the server for recommendations and when they are genuinely excited about a dish or a cocktail that's a good sign. We got cocktails and the presentation was great but the flavors were not that exciting. The food was all very good but again, nothing too exciting or unique.

There was a terrible "pine" odor periodically in the restaurant. It smelled like Pine Sol. Staff informed us that it was some pine item used in preparing a cocktail. Seemed like I was dining in a disinfected hospital room.

We went to House 406 on a whim and it was a golden whim. This is one of those "it's in a mall" restaurants and his hidden in a corner of the mall, but do not be mislead -- this is a seriously good restaurant that instantly rose to the top of our "best food, best value" north shore restaurants. Every dish (from cocktail to appetizer to entree to desert) was flavored a little different, a little unusually, and always in a new, intriguing way. There is a creative force inside. We ate outside on a beautiful day; the patio is pleasant and quiet. Our waitress was attentive and thoughtful and we enjoyed her attention.

A fantastic restaurant!! A real gem and a standout in the Northbrook area. The food is wonderful - tasty and creative - and the service is top notch. Our waiter was a bourbon aficionado and we really enjoyed talking with him. He stopped by our table multiple times to chat and see how we were doing. Highly recommended!

I have been to 406 a handful of times. The food is terrific. The ambiance is warm and it is pretty quiet compared to most restaurants these days.
I love the feel of the place. The staff is warm and friendly and has been most accommodating . Highly recommend.

Excellent dinner as always. Very knowledgeable staff. Excellent bar.
I had the wedge salad and burger and my wife had the fish entree. Both were perfect.
Always a pleasure to eat here.

We had a terrific dinner and cocktails. The service was outstanding and the first time I've been asked if we had any restrictions due to allergies. A rather loud party of 8 were seated not far away, which was a shame as we had a very cozy table for two! The cocktail was a brandy raspberry ice cubes with tequila poured over it. Fantastic!!

We had a beautiful anniversary dinner last week at House 406. The scallops, crab cakes and wedge salad were absolutely perfect and the cocktails were so unique and creative. Our server was lovely. We will definitely be back for another dinner.

Dinner was very good. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his pasta and I had the whitefish which was really delicious.
This restaurant can be rather pricy once you add appetizers, wine and dessert. But overall it his fine dining without having to go downtown.
We will be back!

This was 4 star gourmet cooking at reasonable prices – – for lunch.
I had onion soup and a salmon dish – – both created by an extremely creative chef.
I cannot wait to go back there and try something else.

Our dinner was awful! I ordered seared scallops over Risotto. First of all it came about 5 minutes after we ordered so I am sure it was not made to order. The scallops were not brown at all and on top of the risotto it looked like oatmeal. Instead of offering to re-do they just had me order a new entree. I got the seafood fettuccini which also came in 5 minutes with so much sauce it was awful. It was also a different temperature in places so I am sure it was microwaved. I can do that at home-I don't want to pay $30.00 for an entree like that. Don't go!!!!

The entres were overpriced for what they were. The Kitchen could not accommodate my wife's garlic allergy except on two of the entres. Wines were overpriced. The puree on my entre was undistinguishedEd. Comm. Why to American chefs feel they have to use garlic on all dishes

We were there on a Friday night but able to make reservations that same afternoon. The food was excellent, right size portions and very nicely presented. Waiter was very attentive and the the overall service was great. A very nice bonus is the extremely quiet atmosphere. This is one of our go-to restaurants for the two of us or with friends.

We really enjoyed our appetizers very much. But when we got the bass we ordered, it was supposed to be with bok choy and mushrooms and when I took a bite into it, it was shrimp and mussels. I don't eat shellfish and was pretty upset about it. They kept saying that the new dish was coming soon, but never compensated me for anything. The bill was almost $100 for 2 appetizers, 2 fish, and a cauliflower and their kitchen messed up big time. Nothing was done to revise the bill for their error.
Honestly, I wouldn't have minded paying the money, if they got it right.

I'm only sorry that we didn't visit House 406 sooner! The food was excellent, service superior and the drinks were delicious and inventive! We ate inside which was quiet (and perfect) - outside seemed a little livelier.

We rarely dine in the suburbs since most restaurants are either chains or "chain like." House 406 could easily fit in River North or the Gold Coast. The food is flavorable and the drinks are excellent and unique.

This restaurant opened a couple of years ago, and it was somewhat unique in the suburbs; a dining experience that emulated city dining with a sophisticated drink and food menu. The drinks are creative and the food is excellent; among the few really good places to eat in the northern suburbs. It's so much better than the chains like Wildfire and Di Pescara that it should be fully booked every night.
