We came here for our Anniversary, and we had a fabulous time. Our 1st round of drinks were slow, but everyone in the service industry is short staffed…having said that, our server Anthony was one of the best we’ve had in a long time! He was extremely attentive, thoughtful, and never made us feel rushed. We love Kimi’s and always like to support a great local spot, but Anthony really elevated our experience and we will be requesting him upon return.

We tried several different appetizers as well as a soup.
Everything was terrific.
The clam chowder was different from any I'd ever had, and wonderfully spicy.
The crab cakes were meaty and full of flavor.

I had the toast smögen Wich was enjoyable and yellow beets with an orange dressing topped with beet sprouts. Had nice cava brut to drink.
I'd hoped to have scallops but not available that evening😒. Unfortunately many of the other dishes on the menu that night which seemed appealing had jalapeno which is too picante for me.

We had a wonderful experience. Most of us (a group of 5 friends) had never been to Kimi’s before. We requested a patio table which was a lovely place to get together and have drinks…..Very nicecocktail menu. Though it would also have been just great to have our dinner there too, a sudden thunderstorm came up and the staff, without missing a beat… seated all of us (I mean all who were at outdoor tables.. not just our table) within a couple of minutes. The remainder of dinner went without a hitch even though they they had at least two very large groups also to take care of in addition to the usual diners. Food was great. Ambiance is lovely. Can’t wait to come here again. Thank you for the very attentive service and the wonderful evening.

Second time we’ve been there. Last review I mentioned Oysters were the best thing. Can’t say it this time because they didn’t have Oysters due to a recall. Calamari was ok. Their meatballs are awful, awful, awful. My wife ordered the pasta dish with added shrimp. The server forgot to add shrimp when she sent the order so it isn’t the kitchen’s fault. The pasta was very good. The server forgot our drinks and they sat at the bar for 15 minutes. Best thing I ordered was Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc … would have been better if it was served cold. Not sure we are coming back.

Enjoyed our second visit here, overall. Started off rocky since they said they had power issues and wouldn't let our party order appetizers before our meals (half the party arrived 30 min earlier than the other). The ambiance is beautiful and seating is great. Make a reservation beforehand. I especially enjoy their outdoor dining and whenever they have live music going on. The pork chop was a little over cooked but the sauce it came in was exceptional, making the cook of the meat obsolete. Definitely give this place a try, and I'm sure we will be back.

I wanted to take my daughter somewhere nice, and Kimi's was close and convenient. We ordered mushroom soup, Swedish mac and cheese, fried chicken. All superb, and service was excellent. They helped make me a hero to my daughter, which was what I wanted.

Service was good. Food was not good at all. No taste in either of our dishes. Even my mojito was not good (how can you mess that up?) Very disappointed, especially given the price.

Our server Jeremy provided a great experience for our table. Literally everything we selected on the menu was top notch! I will definitely visit this restaurant on my next visit to SLC.

Food very good. Service excellent. Good wine list. (Disappointed that no oysters available, but that's due to less supply from ocean acidification caused by climate change--not the restaurant's fault; hope they get re-supplied soon.)

We are traveling through from SC and made it a point to eat here again based on the great food and ambiance we experienced last year! This year did not disappoint and already want to go back. The inside is gorgeous, food is delicious and the wait staff are professional ans courteous! Thank you for a great evening!

I was excited to try this restaurant when I heard about it. I have this memory of the amazing food at her previous restaurant Absolute. The building and general appearance of the restaurant are very upscale feeling besides the men’s restroom stall door that won’t latch and has duct tape all over it. There were things about this restaurant that weren’t up to the standards of the price point of the food. The service was very standard, nothing like I’ve had at expensive or even less expensive places. I really should not need to ask for a refill on any beverage, the place was not overly busy. I’ve noticed a handful of servers at expensive restaurants are possibly trying to act upscale, but honestly come off as rude or like they have better things to do with their time. Just smile, be personable and nice. I sort of regret the 20 percent I left. Even the host made me feel like I couldn’t stand out front to wait for the rest of our party, even though there wasn’t a soul on the outdoor patio yet. When they seated us it was not personable at all. At most restaurants at any price point the host will speak with you even if just a little bit and make you feel welcome. There were 6 of us and half of us thought the food was only decent. Presentation was excellent, so much so that I took a couple of pictures. The pork chop was dry and way too generously covered in sugary jam. The chanterelle mushroom soup was great and one in our party loved the portobello entree. Nothing else really seemed to wow us. Normally at a place like this someone is saying, this is the best I’ve ever had of a particular dish. This was not the case. One in our party had been before and warned it was not great. We still gave it a chance because some of us were so fond of the previous restaurant from the owner. Not even close to the excellent food I was expecting for the price point. Sorry to say I don’t think any of us will be back. Funny how most places on open table have so many stars.
