House 406 Ratings and Reviews
Their Brussels sprouts/kale salad (don’t remember the name) was excellent and the service was very attentive, but everything else... My overpriced scallops did not flake and were rather rubbery. Brussels sprouts were fair as were my wife’s fries. Her overpriced burger was undercooked (rare vs medium rare). We didn’t bother with dessert.
We dined for lunch, the first time I had tried lunch at House 406. We started with my favorite cocktail, when the clock strikes midnight. Looking forward to the winter when the fir branch reappears in the glass. I had the fish tacos, which were exactly what I had wanted and a generous serving. We lingered well past lunchtime and were made to feel at home the entire time.
Had dinner Friday night. This was our second time. The food was outstanding and our waiter was probably one of the best we ever had. I like bourbon and he was very knowledgeable and a great help in recommending from their extensive offerings. The meal was topped off with a delicious peach crisp that was excellent. We will be going back soon.
This place is really busy on the weekends, but during the week it can be a terrific location for great food and conversation. Our only minor nit was that several of our choices didn't match the menu description, e.g., missing/different ingredients, but everything was really yummy nonetheless. Unobtrusive, non-hurried service too. Friendly and welcoming when we walked in.
This was our first visit to the restaurant. We hadn't talked to anyone about it. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu and food we ordered. The weather was great, so we could eat outside, the service was wonderful, and the wine was great also. We will be back!
We thought the entries were a bit over priced for the portions that we received. My wife had the scallop's and they were awful gritty. I had the white fish which was the better choice....very flavorful. We also shared a desert that was just marginal, chocolate cake served with some vanilla ice cream and a peanut butter cup........nothing special.
Would like to love this place, because it is conveniently located, and good for a neighborhood go to spot. The food, while creative, needs to be better executed. Was there on a not busy week night, and the salmon was way overcooked, and dry. The steaks were fair, though slightly over done. The scallops were good, and though there were only three, they were large. Salads were good, and the peach cobbler is excellent. We were waiting a very long time after ordering dessert, and then the waiter brought our bill, completely forgetting the dessert, in spite of having brought us each a plate and fork to share the cobbler. We had already asked twice about our dessert, but still, he forgot, so he grabbed the bill back, and then brought out the cobbler. He probably shouldn't have added that to the bill! So, the kitchen and the staff need to step it up if they want return business. This place charges too much to have these mistakes tolerated.
My second visit after almost a year. Brought a friend who shares a passion for good, healthy ingredients prepared in interesting ways that highlight the fresh ingredients. The fish tacos were amazing and the shaved brussel sprout salad perfect for a summer lunch! The waiter was knowledgeable about preparation and was willing to make recommendations. The service was spot on. We dined outdoors and even though it fronts a parking lot, the arrangement conceals the noise and the visual distraction. Both of us look forward to another visit soon!
Please, Jennifer, keep this going!
The atmosphere was nice and I had the burata salad and my husband had the mussels for our first course. Both of those were excellent. We were both disappointed with our entrees. I had the potato gnocchi and it did not resemble gnocchi at all. The taste was okay, but it was too rich to eat very much and it was mushy. I really didn't get the gnocchi part it was like very rich gooey mashed potatoes. My husband had the blackened whitefish. He was disappointed that it wasn't more blackened and the cauliflower/spinach dish that was served with it tasted okay, but again it was very rich and did not compliment the fish. We had the peach cobbler for dessert and it was excellent. I would be willing to give it another try, but when you spend that kind of money you expect the entrees to be very good.
While there are a number of mainstay entries on the menu remain, farm to table concept dictates changes. Accordingly, a few notable current options are cream of mushrooms soup with truffle oil, a peach anchored salad, oysters, and scallops with risotto. After coming here 3 times I am convinced their entires offer the worst value. For example, the scallops dish had 3 (three) scallops, and smaller than u12 size, more like 12-15, toward 15 size. That combined with smallish lump of risotto (don't get me wrong- all tasty and cooked right) goes for $31. A bit much.
That is why I took a star off.
We loved our dining experience here which was consistently top notch. We had a couple of fish dishes including a miso sauced red snapper with scrumptious black rice, a chicken Marsala, burrata salad with great touches like grilled peaches. The cream of mushroom soup was decedent even before the truffle oil garnish. Our server was helpful and attentive, and was happy to tweak my whitefish from blackened to "unblackened"!
The atmosphere is "grown up" and cozy. We are looking forward to our next meal there. It's great to have House 406, independently owned and nicely creative.
I was excited to try this place as it seemed to be an upscale neighborhood gem including farm to table delights. We ordered the oysters and mushroom soup to start....the soup was most delectable and flavorful, really amazing. Each oyster tasted worse than the last until I couldn't even eat anymore :( I ordered the lamb chops which were extremely small, over seasoned and dry. My fiancé ordered the pork chop, it was a nice size and good but nothing I couldn't grill at home. The deserts were meh - chamomile flan, choc lava cake with ice cream...nothing special, the only thing that stuck out in our minds was the price of our meal vs the quality & flavor.......ridiculous!
Went on a Saturday night during the dinner hour. We were waited on quickly. Once we got our food, we both ordered fish, one cod and one halibut - both deliciously prepared, it seemed we fell off our waiters radar. Without even asking us if we were interested in having dessert, he presented us with our check. Also, the restaurant got so loud we could hardly hear each other's conversation. But, the food was delicious. So, we left with mixed feelings about returning.
All of our food exceeded expectations. Our only complaint (very minimal) was that it was a little noisy when we first arrived, but as the night went on and people filtered out, the noise level re-adjusted to a more date-friendly level. If you plan on coming here for a date and noise is a concern of yours, I suggest coming later in the night to avoid this problem (it quieted down by 8:15).
