Food was terrible

There were only a few other tables of patrons when we visited on a Sunday for brunch. The ambiance and service are pleasant, but the food is not good. The biscuits in the biscuits and gravy were stiff and stale and served with an only passable gravy that was neither creamy nor peppery. I had the pastrami hash. It's a hot, greasy, overcooked mess that looks and tastes nothing like a real breakfast hash. It came with a number of ingredients - like mushrooms, nearly carbonized roasted brussels sprouts, and a harissa topping - that weren't on the menu. The pastrami was scarce and the poached eggs on top were cooked hard. The only diner in my party who mostly liked his meal had the huevos - and one of his huevos tasted off - which is where he quit eating. We won't be back here.

The service was terrible. We waited an hour for our food and the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. When the food arrived they only had 4 of the 6 meals and we waited an additional 30 mins for the last two meals. Insanely terrible experience would never go back.

Excellent!!! We haven’t eaten here in years (only get to Chicago a few times a year), but this visit reminded us why we love Hubbard Inn. The food is amazing, creative, and delicious. The bacon wrapped goat cheese stuffed dates are simply out of this world! My only regret is that our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and we ordered way too much food. Drinks were also fun and original.

Parts of the meal were fantastic, while other parts flopped. Maybe a different menu item would have been ok? But for a downtown Chicago meal costing $100, I expect the meal to be on point.
Great ambiance, maybe better for a cocktail stop.

I was looking for a nice, last minute restaurant for a party of five people and the Hubbard Inn was the choice. The food was subpar. They burned one of my entrees. They repeatedly got one of my friend's orders wrong, so much so they had to remove everything from the bill. There are plenty of other restaurants in the Chicago Loop to patronize, and the Hubbard Inn is not one of them. I, unfortunately, will never be back nor recommend the Hubbard Inn to anyone I know. It was a poor way to end the night.

Drinks and food were good. Service needed some work. When someone at the table asked for a second side of dressing, we were asked if we could just share. Not appropriate.

Great lunch spot with a lot of tasty options on the menu. I chose the 1/2 lobster roll & soup--it was a lot of food! My friend selected the cobb salad--ditto. However both were very good. Will definitely drop by when in the neighborhood.

I went here for a birthday dinner with a few friends. It took our server a while to even approach the table when we were one of the only ones in the restaurant. We ordered an appetizer which we were very displeased with. The server didn’t know some of the items that came with the appetizer and for $25 we were very disappointed. It sat on the table till the entrees came and then it was finally cleared. Not once during our visit was anything mentioned about there being a special occasion, we had a reservation and I even specified we were celebrating a birthday. Overall the atmosphere was probably the best thing about this restaurant.

We had a 10am reservation and the door was locked and not opened until 10:40 with minimal apology. Short staffed, long wait for drinks and coffee. The corned beef hash was all fat. We were really looking forward to the dining experience and disappointed. On a positive note, cool atmosphere and the turkey crepes were awesome. Hoping it was just an off day for them.

I have come to Hubbard Inn many times for their good food, beautiful décor, and good service. This weekend was a little disappointing based on past experiences.
They must have JUST started a new menu, because when I looked online while booking the reservation the menu was different than the menu we were given at the restaurant. This was disappointing, as I was entertaining family from out of town that are quite picky and I wouldn't have picked the restaurant based on the new menu. Additionally, our "Truffle Sliders" were missing the truffle aioli that they are named for...quite disappointing.
Aside from issues with the new menu, we had a good experience and enjoyed ourselves.

We had a reservation for 11, the host sat us at a table for 8. She tried to claim the reservation was for 8 (Don’t know how she thought she’d win that battle. It was on my phone.) She kept not trying to fix the situation and making me have the same conversation over with the server how there was no way we would all fit. After 30 min of awkwardly being jammed in a small table, they found another table to add on. The host never took accountability for her eff up and the manger never came by to address the situation even though the server reported it multiple times. Terrible experience. I don’t recommend coming here if you don’t want to deal with people who can’t do their job.

I needed a place for brunch for a group of 9 people and due to procrastination only had 2 hrs to book a reservation on opentable. Needless to say, there weren’t many options open for such a large group with short notice but Hubbard Inn luckily had openings. The menu had something for everyone and was pretty spot on and quick. Unfortunately, the service lacked quite a bit where we were sitting without coffee/water throughout the meal..and it took quite a bit of time to receive our check after finishing our meal. Despite the spotty service I would probably go back again.

My lobster omelet was delicious and so were the potatoes. However, my husband asked for his steak to be cooked medium, but it was served rare and had to be sent back.

My boyfriend and I went to Hubbard in on a date. Great food, fun, energetic music, and a rich ambiance. While a little loud, we enjoyed the energy of the restaurant and dinned on well prepared unique dishes! I highly recommend checking Hubbard Inn out!

The food was great here, and the ambiance is fine. But boy, the kitchen took a long time to bring our food. We only ordered 5 appetizers for lunch and they didn't bring us our food until almost an hour after we were seated, and we ordered just a few minutes after we sat down. This nearly made us late for our meeting after lunch.

The waitress said there was a party going on upstairs, but that seems like a weak excuse because you can plan ahead for parties and for a weekday lunch demand.

I was disappointed in what appeared to be poor planning on the part of the restaurant.

Very cute and stylish place but service and food do not live up to the decor. Constantly hunting down the server to ask for things, sent food back b/c not what ordered and still getting it wrong. Too bad - nice vibe but won't be back soon.

Stumbling upon Hubbard Inn ended up being the best way to end the evening in Chicago. The atmosphere is cozy, and chic without trying too hard. Staff was welcoming and friendly and got us to our table right away. The cocktail list is very fresh and would be a great reason to visit on it's own. We had the salmon deviled eggs as a snack to share, and we all really enjoyed them. After we ordered our dinners we didn't wait too long for them to show up. There was one mistake on an order, but the server noticed it before it even was placed on the table and had it corrected right away. The only drawback was that our server was given another large table and didn't have as much time for us so we were not able to order another round of drinks. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
