House 406 Ratings and Reviews
Kate the owner was great. They seated us right away. The noise level was through the roof. Food was very good but a bit less than I am used too. Especially at these prices. Jill our server was a bit dismissive, did not come by for a while to check on things, and tossed the bill on our table on the way to another. Not a bad experience but not great either.
While they are trying to be an upscale restaurant, these are the things I noticed.
The soup was not hot, only warm. While the salmon listed spinach, it wasn't a leaf spinach, but a blended spinach. The quinoa, plate, and coulis on the plate were cold, only the salmon on top was hot. The molten cake, while tasty, was not molten (slightly liquidy) in the center, but cooked all the way through.
I think the most uncomfortable thing was the waiter returned the paid check and left it on the table without saying a word, like thank you? Or have a nice evening. I've lived in this town 34 years and was hoping for a good restaurant. We won't return .
It was excellent as always. There Good Hunting cocktail is worth the trip by itself. Scallops dish you will be licking the plate clean. The filet and lobster was cooked to perfection. We have eaten here half a dozen times and never been disappointed. Highly recommended
Well, I will keep it short. Mother's Day brunch for 3= $150. Way overpriced in my opinion, they also took the liberty of adding 21% gratuity for a buffet. Wouldn't complain about the price, but the only real proteins they had were cheap, short ribs and whitefish, the bacon was a soggy mess. Salads were good, but again for $50 a head the spread was lackluster. Won't be patronizing for brunch in the future!! Not even shrimp or prime rib. Very disappointed
Food was cooked perfectly but completely over flavored. The lobster appetizer had a piece of cheese on it, literally a piece of melted cheese on top. Many dishes had bacon in them?? Scallops were perfectly prepared but was saturated with a heavy cream butter cheese sauce. You couldn't taste the actually entree. My stomach hurt when we left. Has potential if they kept the food simplified. Cheese, butter and cream not necessary if you are serving good quality lobster, scallops and other fish. Disappointed And was expensive.
Great spot. Our meal started with a surprise of complementary proseco as we were celebrating an anniversary. Then we split a 1/2 dozen Kusshi oysters that were fantastic. The wine list is very good, thought could benefit from some better options in the less than $50/btl range. Our Ripasso Valpolicella choice at $57/btl was very good, though. We then each ordered an entree. Mine was a special that consisted of a 12oz strip steak and grilled asparagus and hers was seared Boston scallops over an asparagus rissotto. Both were fantastic. We also split an order of super tasty brussels sprouts with lemon and bacon that were probably the best I've ever had. I happen to be a very good cook when it comes to making great steak and prefer a steak charred on the outside but rare to medium rare on the inside and that is often tricky for restaurants that don't specialize in steak to create but I will state that my steak at House 406 was better tasting and cooked better than a steak I had at a famous downtown amphibian bar on Rush Street a few days earlier. This was a really good meal and was topped off with a really delicious strawberry rhubarb cobbler with vanilla gelato and two coffees. We will be back for sure. Our only regret was waiting so long to try this place!
I had the halibut, which was very good, but not hot. I think the fruit on top (which was very tasty), cooled the fish. My friend had pasta with shrimp, which she enjoyed. They served two rolls (one pretzel and one white) ... I think the basket should have had more than 2 rolls. I also had to ask for more butter ... very little was given. I felt that a little salad/soup would have been nice for the price of the entrée. Would I go back ... I'm not sure.
The brussel sprout salad was good, not great. I ordered scallops that came w/risotto. The risotto was good but the scallops were overcooked & were like rubber! My husband enjoyed his burger. He had a burata salad first, thought it was small. The wine by the glass was very good. Overall, for what we had it was very expensive. Would not go back.
This was my 4th time at House 406, and it seems that some of the creative presentation is missing in their entrees. Also, the appetizers are very thin at best - only 5 were listed, and two of those were soups. Service was attentive, but it seems like House 406 has slipped a bit with their delivery.
Our second visit- can't figure out why it took us so long to return.
Love House 406- the server patiently explained many dishes to us- she was excellent in every way
menu varied and very interesting
salads all sound yummy, but I loved the Caesar and others had the mixed greens with pear
kitchen was willing to prepare a simple mixed green salad without the fruit
expansive choices of salad dressings
the Chilean Sea Bass was a huge portion- the vegetable cake that it sits on is absolutely delicious and is perfect with the fish
two people had the chicken and enjoyed
and I heard the crab cakes were delicious
unfortunately we did not have dessert- the Academy Awards were calling
We went to House 406 to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. I indicated that when I made the reservation, not thinking that they'd do something, and to my surprise they gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne! It was very nice of them. We both had the fish, salmon and the whitefish and both dishes were DELICIOUS!
Friends and I stopped by early one Friday night for only cocktails. While we did consider having some food, we were a bit astounded by the high prices, so we held back. $46 for a steak entree?! The space was small and intimate, dimly lit, furnished in dark woods. A couple of us love martini cocktails and were disappointed there were little to choose from, however, they did offer to make whatever we wanted. I wish they could offer a list to choose from as I really couldn't list the ingredients of my favorite martinis. Service was excellent though, waiter and staff were attentive and kind.
I had high hopes for this place since it had been well-rated. Not sure what the fuss is about. Charging high-end prices doesn't always mean the experience is going to be worth it. Some of the wines by the glass are well-priced, some not. They have some very, very pricey bottles on their wine list! So, we had the burrata salad - nice, simple (not the one they have online) and then the Chilean sea bass ($36), which was very good, if a bit bland, and the scallops ($31), which had a slight bitter taste, though the prep was artistic. I think they were very busy this evening, as we were asked if we would like some bread, and after 4 trips by the waiter to the table next to us without bringing the bread, I had to ask for it when he delivered the salad. We had a reservation for 730p and had to wait by the door and bar for about 20 minutes. It was just not the gracious dining we were looking forward to.
