The food was not very good. Which is unusual. I’ve been here before and the food was great. The fries were burnt and we were one of two tables in the restaurant, but the food took over 40 minutes to come out of the kitchen. This experience was not good.

I was greeted by the staff. I had good come to me quickly. I had a feeling the workers were trying hard to make the place a solid restraunt. I over heard the waiter telling a couple at the next table that they had just redone the place, and it looked like a mesuem.

I've been here before, but not for dinner, only for happy hour and for brunch. This time we came for a light dinner. We shared an Italian Flatbread which was disappointing. Merely a not great small cheese pizza with red pepper flakes. The Ahi tartare (ordered 2) was excellent and a decedent portion size. The spring green cassolette was a fresh mixed bean cold salad that was quite good with a nice vinagrette although the ratio of starchy beans (eg edamame and lima beans) was too high. They should add another vegetable or use more green beans and pea shoots. Cocktails are excellent and the bar tenders are an asset there, but the drinks are very pricey (mostly $14 each, G&T were $11). So this light dinner of 4 starters, no entrees, and 2 drinks each for 3 people cost $180 including gratuity.

Coffee was excellent and refills were frequent. Four of us split an order of sticky buns and it was just the right amount of food for each.
We each ordered a make your own omelette. Everyone liked their selection.

Could not hear my beau even though we sat right next to one another & the 1st floor was not packed. Music was good though.

Flatbread did not list olives as an ingredient ... yeah I absolutely despise olives. Chicken Wings were soggy & fell apart ... only half of each was crispy. Felt forgotten by our server. Too dark to read the menu.

But Fries were delish.

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.

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.
