From the team behind Chicago Q and Art Smith's Blue Door Kitchen, Blue Door Farm Stand dishes out globally inspired, farm-to-table American fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Reclaimed wood, a marble bar, and vintage chandeliers create a chic yet relaxed setting.

We want consumers to view Blue Door Farm Stand as more than just a restaurant—we want them to become a BELIEVER in our philosophy.

We believe the seasons should dictate what is on the table. We are committed to being part of our community and to having personal relationships with our purveyors. We believe in providing a warm and welcoming space for our guests to enjoy wholesome delicious food.

Our customers should associate Blue Door with top quality service and products in an environment that harkens back to simpler times when seasons dictated what was on the table, when people shared a sense of community, and when the human element was present in every aspect of the brand experience.

We were a party of 8 people with two little girls (one 4 year old, one 2.5 years old). The food for the girls arrived at the same time as the appetizers. The girls finished the appetizers and their dinners while we waited for the food for the adults. The problem being that we literally sat and watched them make the dinner for the adults and then watch the food go cold until we asked the waiter to serve our food (and even then had to wait). By the time the food arrived for the adults, what could go cold did. My hamburger was good, but didn't have all the fixings, but again, it was cold so I didn't bother asking for it to be redone and wait another 30 minutes for it to arrive.

I think the restaurant just isn't capable of handling large parties of greater than 5 which is sad considering how small the restaurant is.

It was a birthday in our group and it took 10 minutes for the waiter to come around for drinks and then another 15 to take the order. Food took 30 minutes to come out and apps took 20. It was decently loud and made it difficult to talk.

The lunch menu was very disappointing. Ordered the sesame chicken salad and the chicken was fridge cold. The side dishes are overpriced. We won’t be going back there.

Even though they were closing out upstairs seating, they accommodated my daughters request for upstairs by the window. We all enjoyed our food and the girls can’t wait to go back for more tomato soup!

We sat down and it took us about 20 minutes to order our food. Then, it took us about 40 minutes to get our food. The food itself was extremely mediocre. I ordered the farmstand burger, which was OK, but the fries were rock hard. Our waiter forgot to put in our order of shrimp, which we ended up cancelling. Ambiance was nice - restaurant is pretty.

Stay away and spend your money elsewhere. 2/10

I stumbled upon this restaurant and am very glad I went for dinner! The decor and ambiance is tasteful and well done. The service was quick and everyone was extremely kind. Furthermore, the food was amazing and priced very well. I'm excited to return to try more food on the menu!

This was on our list for a long time and we finally got to go for brunch. We sat for a good 20 minutes with no server to offer us coffee or anything. The rest of the meal continued with slow service, which was disappointing. Someone at our table ordered a pancake and when the rest of the food came, she asked if the pancake was coming and the server said, “do you still want it?”
It is a beautiful space and the food was ok, but overall I was disappointed with our experience.

Food was excellent. Space was inviting. Restaurant was two thirds to three quarters full but empty tables present. Service was very rushed. We felt as if they couldn’t wait for us to leave. We were in and out in a little more than an hour for a Saturday night date. Quality of food good enough that we will give it another try.

Super cute place with an interesting menu, but they just don't have it together yet to deal with the Sunday Brunch crowd. Not enough servers, probably. We had a reservation but had to wait more than half an hour. It happens. I'm sure they'll improve over time.

Great menu and fun cocktails. Staff was nice and polite but service was slow. Music was a bit too loud for how crowded it was inside. A/C blasting with door open is a waste. We’ll definitely return.

We had two different servers and the second one wrote down our order incorrectly. We were brought the wrong food so we had to wait the additional time for the kitchen to prepare our entrees correctly. They did apologize and paid for our iced tea. I love the ambiance here and the food is really outstanding, so I would go back and recommend it to my friends.

I’ve eaten lunch at Blue Door on two recent occasions. All was enjoyable and the food very good. Unfortunately the noise level makes it impossible to have a good conversation with friends. With loud, booming music as background the customers are shouting to be heard. Highly annoying loud noise may keep me from returning.

This restaurant is very cute and I’m so disappointed that they treated my fiancé and I really bad! They hostess was so rude, she said there were no open tables when clearly there were and when I checked online to make a reservation there were so many slots open! We made a reservation on the spot and she had no choice but to seat us. I don’t know what her problem was but never going back that’s for sure!

Great décor and ambiance, very cute place for brunch or lunch with friends. The food is fresh and there are many healthy/veggie based options.

The music was great... one of our lunch members mentioned that it was the best restaurant playlist he had ever heard.

Their classic breakfast was literally the BEST classic breakfast I’ve ever had. My only complaint is that our table was ridiculously tiny and the food took a while to prepare. However, the ambiance and quality of the food more than makes up for it.

Lovely interior...very nice service staff. Food...eh. Roast chicken was dry. No sauce. cooked carrots not too flavorful. If roast chicken comes out in 15 mins you know it has been re-heated. Large portion.
empanadas had great sauces but they were hard as if re-heated. My husband's salmon was a little dry too he said. NO bread . My friend has a very nice veggie burger with sumptuous salad on the side.
Nice place but needs a little work.
