Another great meal at Kiki's! we went for dinner on Friday to celebrate my birthday. A fine time was had by all and the staff found a delicious last minute birthay cake. I always enjoy this very special place!
I have been here a few times and have enjoyed it. Food was very good as usual; however, the service was off this time. We were there on a Friday night and felt rushed throughout our meal. We weren't finished eating our meal and dessert and plates were whisked away so quickly. For dessert we were able to stop the waiter from taking the plates as we weren't finished. When we were done with dessert we wanted didn't want coffee but wanted to order another drink and felt like the waiter didn't want us to do that and and wanted our table to be free even though there were still empty tables available. We felt rushed out of there so we paid our bill and went somewhere else for another drink.
Fabulous French onion soup. Kiki’s is a wonderful place!
The ambiance was delightful, the service was very good and attentive, the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and relatives.
We were at Kiki’s to celebrate a birthday and they went out of their way to make it special. The food was delicious and authentic - such a rare treat.
Have enjoyed Kiki's for over 40 years. Always a great experience.
Alway delicious food. A great place to celebrate!
One of those rare finds that only locals know about. You could be in a small bistro in Paris. The food is wonderful.
As a former Chicagoan it is a must that I have dinner a Kiki's. Excellent service and fantastic food. I am looking forward to my next visit.
If you haven't gone in a while, Go. If you've never gone, Go Now. Kiki's hospitality and reliably delicious French classics can't be beat. We were there with an out of town friend, "closed the place" on a week night, and never felt anything but warm hospitality. Skate was especially delicious and well balanced in flavor profile. Guest loved his foie gras. Kiki's deserves to be on everyone's short list.
We keep going back. Love the place. Kiki is cool and the martini's are good.
Disappointing. KiKi's was recommended by a friend. Service was friendly, but slow for our table. Food was mediocre. My duck leg was overcooked (dry) and my date's steak was thin and without much flavor. Apparently their was a large private party this evening, which may account for the situation, but we were not impressed.
Outstanding as usual
Love, love Kiki's...mom and dad's favorite past time. Good French food, warm family atmosphere.
Love Kiki’s!! The atmosphere and patrons are both refined yet comfortable, and you can have a real conversation without having to shout and/or overhear your neighbors. The escargot and French onion soup are my favorites, but there are always interesting specials to consider. In the depths of Chicago’s “winter in April” they kept some of their heartier entries on the menu too. The service is impeccable, and on this busy Saturday night that had our waiter scurrying, it was Kiki himself who made sure our wine glasses were refilled. I look forward to trying their outdoor patio space this summer!
Kiki's is a lovely place and I and my wife enjoy it immensely. The drinks are good and the food is excellent.
very disappointing. 2 in our party of 4 ordered the Fix Price meal Steak and Chips. The meet was not eatable - overcooked, could not cut, bad taste. They took off the stake from the bill but kept the cost of first course and desert that resulted in $6 saving per person with no main course.
Kiki's is still the best! Our favorite place anytime.
Classic French bistro cuisine and service, lovely ambiance, well done!
What a fantastic evening.....starting with the French Onion Soup, onto Steak Pommes Frites and finishing with a warm Apple Tart with Ice Cream !! Great atmosphere, great French Foods in a relaxing setting. Thanks Kiki !!
My new favorite restaurant in all of Chicagoland ...Escargot is a mood setter, amazing
Always a pleasure at Kikis
I have been dining at Kiki‘s for more than two decades. This time I took a group of nine others with me. We adored each and every hors d’oeuvre, entrée and dessert that we had. The kir was disappointing. I highly recommend Kiki’s as the best French cuisine in Chicago.
Two vegetarian options were nice. More to come? Fantastic bread. Creative salad. Reliably outstanding French Onion Soup. Every entree (six in our group) was rated delicious. Wonderful lemon tart. Well-paced meal. Excellent service!
Kiki's is always a great place to eat. You never have to wait if you have reservations. Just good food and service! It is a great go to type of place!
It was excellent as one expected - very reliable with food and service.
We enjoyed very much. Good location as it is a walking distance from my home, too.
Always a pleasure to dine at KiKi’s. We’ve been coming to this charming restaurant for 35 years. This particular evening we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary!
You will recall this was Julia Child’s go to restsurant when in Chicago....
The food was simply excellent, and our waiter was very experienced and provided outstanding service. Kiki's is probably a bit more noisy that it was on the Tuesday evening when we visited.
excellent table service
complimentary valet parking
best martini ever
Wonderful, reasonably priced prix fixe menu with many options before 6:30. Try the mussels.
Kiki's is a classic French bistro. It's been consistently consistent over the years, staying within the bounds of what you expect from a good Parisian bistro. It's always worth returning to if you prefer your food to be real and flavorful. The classics are all there: steak e frites, cassoulet, tarte aux pommes and more. And none of it comes served with foam, dry ice or a piece of Scandinavian driftwood for your amuse bouche.
My favorite French Bistro. Always perfect! Perfect food! Perfect ambience! Perfect staff! Love!
Always a solid, fine meal. The food is really good but I only gave it 3 stars this time as the steak frites could have been a little more seared (we get spoiled by steaks at the steak houses) and a little less done (ordered Medium rare, was medium well . Their other more classic french dishes were great as are the appetizers. They are very consistent and its a great atmosphere. Classic restaurant that feels like a French Bistro.
foie gras was excellent. Main course was very good, authentic cassoulet. Dessert was bad. Espresso Ice Cream Cake was frozen, fresh out of the freezer, had to ask for a knife and still couldn’t eat it. Mousse au chocolat was average.
Food was very average and over priced.
Wine was excellent.
Cozy spot. Decent food. Good service. Been in business for many years.
This is an authentic French Bistro that transports you to a side street in Paris or the countryside of Burgundy or Bordeaux. If you are looking for a cool hip place, this is not it; however, if you want authentic, outstanding French food with phenomenal service, then Kikis is your place. First, Kiki greets you at the door and seats you at your table. Then a friendly, knowledgeable waiter warmly welcomes you. Ask away, they know the menu and wines inside and out. My wife and I celebrated Valentines with a romantic dinner here. We had the seared Fois Gras and French onion soup, followed by the steak au poivre and rack of lamb, and topped it all off with profiteroles for dessert. OUTSTANDING!
This is truly a perfect French bistro filled with ambiance, charm, and amazing food and service.
The food was very good, the room is beautiful, the service is exceptional and the price is affordable.
Kiki ran a restaurant in the Loop in the 1980's a half block from my office and it became my favorite --and frequent-- lunch spot. We are now retired and live in a distant burb but when a friend or an opera or play brings us to Chicago KIKI's Bistro is where we go for a perfect dinner. DZ
The restaurant was closed and they did not call or email to tell us they would not be open on a Friday evening. We showed up to a dark restaurant.
First time here and WOW was I impressed. The service, food, and cocktails were all amazing, enhanced by the wonderful ambiance. Looking forward to a future visit!
