Dawson was incredible with great great service and yummy food!
I went to the Dawson with my girlfriend and our kids. It was really good service and food. Thank you!
Really satisfied. Food was delicious. We had the fish tacos and the Dawson salad. Tacos were not assembled. You’re supposed to do that yourself from a big fish fillet, perfect for sharing. Cocktails were good too.
We celebrated my husbands birthday outside
Fun vibey place- good food, large plates! Service was fantastic
The staff was very accommodating
Great food and nice outdoor seating options. Special shout out to J'Quan a cook there who put so much thought and effort into the preparation of the dishes and gave us personalized explanations and recommendations on what each option offered. We all loved our food!
Wonderful service and great outdoor space!
It was a fantastic expirience. We celebrate my girlfriend birthday with her family and everyone enjoyed it. The service was top class and the food was marvelous. We can’t wait to go back. Thank you for accommodating the party so it was outside and beautiful!
very nice ambiance and location. drinks were very good! service was great
My boyfriend and I had dinner at the Dawson to celebrate our anniversary and we had a great experience! We were sat on the outdoor patio near a heat lamp and distanced from other tables. Our server, Kayla, was professional, friendly, and so sweet; she offered champagne for our anniversary. I was disappointed that the menu is limited right now due to COVID-19, but the food quality was still very good. I look forward to dining at the Dawson again.
The Dawson used to have a great menu with quality foods and ingredients Pre-Covid. I have been there twice now and both times I was disappointed. They are currently serving bar food with poor quality of ingredients and variety on the menu but charging double the price.
I like this place and wanted to keep supporting it. However, I will not be dining there. Drinks are decent but pricey. Do yourself a favor and go to Picollo Signo across the street for better food, good wine and good food at the reasonable price.
Ordered the fried chicken sandwich...came out raw and sent back. Service recovery was good.
Delicious food and the ambience is adorable!
Great! Great drinks and every dish was awesome.
Went there for Sunday lunch/brunch and it was just what we were looking for! Love the outdoor patio area. And they were very good about Covid related measures!
Great for everything drinks food atmosphere 100% recommend
Pleasant evening for my husbands birthday, very nice patio area, I have food allergies and they were wonderful about it, highly recommend, we always enjoy our dinners here
Food good, wine expensive, patio amazing and service really good with 1.5 hour max on the patio, but our food came out so quick, we were in and out in less than an hour.
For the price of items on the menu I expected a much better experience. We sat without water for 15 minutes mid meal.
In my eight years of living in and dining out in Chicago, the service at Dawson yesterday was the worst. Server came by three times-for our drink order, food order and the check (after hailing down a bus boy and been finished with our meal for nearly 30 minutes). While the restaurant was moderately busy and the server did have several tables, we observed him to stop by each of the tables adjacent to ours with the exception of us. We felt completely ignored. Food and outdoor patio ambiance was very good. Will never return due to the horrific service.
They went out of their way to make my friends birthday special! Great service, food and drinks.
We had a wonderful server. Tall handsome Black guy. The food was really good. We had the seared tuna and the steak kabob and barb cauliflower.
Environment is fantastic. Beautiful restaurant and great outdoor patio. Service was excellent. Food was just OK and it was a bit pricey for an American-style meal. I would go back but it won't be a place I go regularly.
The outdoor experience was awesome. The food was perfect. Great way to start off my weekend.
Love the ambiance and good food and service. But the patio was quite crowded, with many tables within 6 feet of each other. So something to be mindful of in this Covid environment.
Our server John was great! We made our dinner extra special.
It's just a rock solid place with rock solid food, ambience, quality, etc. Definitely a "safe" choice if you're looking to dine with New American. However, with each passing time I go there, I am seeing less and less value in the amount of $ I am paying for dishes vs. what I am actually getting. I am no longer going to order brunch dishes as I feel they are just high margin items being pushed at too high of prices, and limited portions. You're better off ordering their known quantities, lunch, and dinner options.
The GTO is one of my favorite drinks in the city, but even that I feel is overpriced since it comes out of a keg and they have the advantages of economies of scale with that one. I'm sure it is homemade too.
Great place for date night. The food was excellent with service to match. Highly recommend this spot
Service was outstanding! Food was horrible. Sent back one dish and just didn’t eat the second.
The Dawson has a beautiful patio and friendly service!
I love the decor and vibe of The Dawson. As well, the food is outstanding along with very attentive service. I did feel there were a few too many people in the outside patio space for current safety standards but otherwise have no complaints. It's a beautiful space that fulfills its mission.
It was for fun
Our server was great as the first time. Little bit expensive. Nice Sunday brunch options. I lived my ahí tuna with papaya salad. Nice beer selection. Great outdoor patio for this pandemic
Celebrating a recent wedding.
The chicken and waffles were 💣! Sooo good. Perfect balance of salty and sweet.
Delicious food, beautiful decor and ambiance, and bubbly! It was the perfect Sunday afternoon.
Loved our whole meal. Shared the empanadas and the fish tacos, both great recommendations from our waiter. Lovely patio. High energy.
I am so impressed with The Dawson. My husband and I were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and the service was absolutely amazing. From being seated on the patio to the complimentary glass of champagne and our awesome Server wishing us a happy anniversary, it was all amazing. And the food, oh my goodness, the fried lobster, just mouth watering. Thank you for an amazing experience!
Good wine, beautiful patio, food was nothing crazy but would go back to have drinks on the patio!
