I always enjoy dining at Dusek’s for the creative menu. Don’t get the corn salad though. It tastes like from a can. The broccoli was great and the cauliflower looked and smelled super if you like fried food.
Great food. A little pricey on the larger meals. Great for sharing smaller plates. The new chef is amazing.
Everything we had at Dusek’s was SO DELICIOUS! The staff there, along with the service was excellent. Everyone was so friendly & helpful! We had a great night out.
Great atmosphere, attentive staff, innovative menu & excellent cocktails- super find!
Excellent food, drinks, and service! thank you for a memorable meal on a beautiful evening!
Just one of our favorites for a million reasons. Such creative & delicious fare. Top notch service. ❤️
really great food and service. their internet was down and they still made it a great experience.
Sat next to a stairwell that led to the downstairs bar, could sometimes hear the music. The food was outstanding. The branzino was delicious and easily splittable, but I needed to try that burger. Was not disappointed with that choice and had some good leftovers. Diane was a treat helping us, highly recommend.
Food was excellent. Outside dining less than favorable. Tables are minuscule.
Place is pretty cool, nice decorations and lighting. Music level was just right.
Our waitress must have been pretty inexperienced as nothing really flowed nor did she really have us on her radar to check on. One entree out of two came out way before the other, and when the other did arrive, it was the wrong dish. The waiter seemed nice though. I had the pork chop, and they deboned it into strips, instead of keeping it whole, didn’t like that as it didn’t let the juices stay in and the last few bites were really dry. Deere list is meager pickings, and the wines were not very good.
The whole building is very cool, with the Hall and Punch bowl, but Dusek’s prob won’t be on the list of places to return to.
Wonderful experience. Food was amazing. Great service. Outdoor seat was nothing special but the roof over us was nice when it started to rain. You have to try the cauliflower tempura!
After living right down the block for over 5 years, I finally decided to give this place a try. The service was amazing. The drinks and food are very good. The servers made sure to keep my water full at all times. I will definitely be coming back.
From the service to the food, dining at Dusek’s Tavern was exceptional! Highly recommend.
My experience there was amazing. Food was awesome and the drinks were top notch. But what stood out was fast service and amazing food. Also thanks for the birthday treat.
Very nice meal! We had the fried cauliflower, the mussels, the pork chop, and Kentucky butter cake for dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was top notch! Multiple other items looked great as well so we will be back to try them. Make sure to stop next door at tack room for some after dinner drinks when the piano starts!
Friendly and knowledgeable service. Wonderful and clever menu selections. Great ambiance. Parking was a mild hassle but we dealt with it. We’ll be back.
Have tried almost everything on the menu and haven't had a thing I don't like. One of our favorite spots in Chicago!
Whenever friends and family come to town they ask about Dusek’s. For years, all I hear about is Dusek’s! New Years Eve- Dusek’s. Covid-19 carry out- Dusek’s. Brunch- Dusek’s. The frequent menu changes allow for an amazing new experience each time. I just love Dusek’s.
All good but the service was very very slow and they got the order wrong. Sat down at 6:30 and left after 9.
Need more parking options. Valet was completely full and there is no street parking easily available
Great service with good veggie options. Certainly will come back again
Great experience. Found out I got to skip the line for the show at Thalia Hall by dining here. That was awesome!
We were visiting Chicago and after extensive research on local faves, settled on Dusek’s for dinner. I marked “special occasion” on my reservation just because it kind of was, but I had no idea what was in store!
We were seated at the one end of the open kitchen, a chef’s table, of sorts, as well as being given two complimentary glasses of bubbly! We felt so special and I had no expectation of anything special so it was a LOVELY surprise!
The food was spectacular! We had a special heirloom tomato salad which wasn’t on the regular menu, the corn salad and the rockfish and shared it all. Everything was seasoned perfectly and thoughtfully constructed. Dessert was a berry cobbler with sweet corn ice cream. Honestly, it was one of the best meals of our lives. I wish we lived closer; we’d be there all the time!
Cannot say enough good about this place. HIGHLY recommend!
Every dish-from the special heirloom tomato salad through the corn salad, ricotta dumplings, pork chop and half chicken on wilted escarole-was flavorful, perfectly presented and proportioned and uniquely seasoned with fresh herbs.
Our server Alex was attentive and very knowledgeable/helpful as we navigated the intriguing menu.
Will definitely return! Dusek’s is a gem in every way.
Really great experience. We sat on the patio before a show and it was excellent people watching.
Servers were super nice. Food was excellent as always.
Super yummy food, great service, but it WAS really loud. We were surrounded by some birthday parties, so it was hard to hear each other sometimes. Other than that, great experience and we’ll be back again soon.
Very lovely and flexible staff. Great menu. Loved the food.
I've been here before with a friend who has celiac and a relatively common allergy and the staff was prepared with a marked up menu and suggestions for alterations. This time, despite our excellent and conscientious server, the kitchen was unwilling to provide any information about what dishes were safe to eat or make minor alterations to dishes (like leaving off a sauce that contained the allergen, we weren't asking for a bespoke meal or anything). My friend was able to eat two appetizers, then despite the several discussions about celiac with the server, the runner brought her ice cream with a cookie on it. The food was good and the server was excellent, but their lack of allergen awareness and the clear frustration of the chef at having to consider accommodation for people with particular sensitivities was extremely disappointing. I won't return, even without my celiac friend.
It was my birthday.
Neutiful place, great vibe. Service was slow but waitress was really good.
Never again... Overpriced uninspired food... The drinks were amazing though!!!
Never ceases to impress me. Unpretentious but tasty, tasteful, and teste-bud-worthy food in a comfortable, cool atmosphere. Everyone you encounter here is so pleasant, too. We love celebrating at Dusek's.
This place is amazing and the food was delicious!! Definitely coming back again 🥰
During dinner last night, I told my wife that I've decided that Dusek's is my favorite Chicago restaurant. I love everything about it.
They were super accommodating and thoughtful with a small gift for my friend’s birthday. Everything was great.
don't sleep on the chicken. it's amazing. i'll have two .
cool atmosphere , drink, and food could be better
We love the new menu! Flavor profiles were spot on, unique and delicious. Tempura cauliflower definitely a highlight. Our server Lydia was absolutely delightful and super knowledgeable about the menu; we will be asking for her section next time for sure. Service was fast and prices insanely reasonable for the amount of food and drink we had! Thanks so much and looking forward to the next visit.
It was a delightful experience! There are so many pockets of fun conjoined to the restaurant, including thalia hall downstairs, tockroom next door, and punchhouse upstairs? lots of choices
