Seafood
Nestled in the heart of Sugarhouse, you’ll find Salt Lake City's newest, freshest, hippest, sexiest Oyster Bar in town! We source our Oyster's, Fish & Seafood directly from Seattle, Prime & Wagu Beef from Snake River Farms in Idaho, Morgan Valley Lamb along with numerous other locally owned small farmers and cheese artisans.
What isn't new about this restaurant concept is local restaurateur, Kimi Eklund and her long time Chef, Matt Anderson. With superior quality restaurants under their belts, "Absolute! Restaurant, Dijon Bistro Provencal and Kimi's Mountainside Bistro" this new culinary delight is their best hit ever!
Warm, glowing fire pits welcome their guests as they walk up to the front of the restaurant. Entering the Oyster Bar the stage turns elegant and chic, welcoming you to the most delightful ambiance to devour your chops & oysters!

A pleasant surprise. Food was very nice. They made good use of the large rooms with high ceilings. Decor was attractive. Met Kimi. She seems a little shy about talking with guests, but nice person. Waiter Anthony took good care of us.

We love this place. Have never had a bad meal here. It’s a little pricey but food and service are excellent. Good wine options, nicely appointed interior and good background music. Space can feel a little cavernous at times but certainly makes having a conversation easy as folks are spread out. We go once a month.

Kimi's is a favorite of ours. The food, service, and ambiance are top notch. We love the toast smogen, shrimp mac and cheese (the chef somehow prepares the shrimp so it has the feel/texture of lobster), ceviche, filet, ribeye, etc. Their oysters are wonderful af well. It's pricey but worth it.

We love Kimi’s! The food and drinks are five star and more often than not you’ll find Kimi herself come to your table to check on you. I love it when an owner takes that much pride in your experience. This is the place to go for a great date night in Sugarhouse.

Our server was a little lacking.
The appetizers were too, but everyone's main course was delicious!
The shrimp ball appetizer didn't really seem to involve much shrimp.
The swedish meat ball appetizer also was just okay.
Calamari is always great, and a safe bet.

This was out first time at Kimi's with family. Excellent service. If you like mundane food do not go to Kimi's. Unusual and great food. Our waiter , "The Weekend Warier" was excellent and made some great suggestions.

We just had our office dinner at Kimi's two weeks earlier and its was so good that I decided to return for a birthday dinner with my family. My son-in-laws family is flying in this weekend and he will take his parents to Kimi's on Saturday right after they arrive. Highly recommended.

Wife ordered the surf and turf which was to die for. 5 year old son ordered the coconut balls which we enjoyed as well. I ordered the turkey special which was delectable. Wife ordered 3 oysters which in turn she wished she ordered more. Highly recommend this establishment for a special night out. We will be returning as we live in the Sugarhouse area.

Service, drinks, and food was excellent. Oysters weren’t amazing, but to be somewhat expected in UT - decor and ambience was nice if not slightly out dated. Bartender was great!

We had a Saturday 5 PM reservation prompted by a gift card from the Hogle Zoo auction but came at 4 PM after our meeting ended early. A bit quiet as most guests do not arrive until about 6-8 pm. Food is not served until 5 PM but there is a great selection of appetizers. We chose the cheese fondue (haven't had fondue in years) with Brussel sprouts, peppers and bread along with a couple of drinks. Tasted outstanding. At 5 we moved into the dining room for dinner and ordered seared tuna and the halibut special. Again both delicious. Service was prompt and attentive and we had a great conversation with JB, our waiter. Finally, we had to leave as we had eaten all the food, but will definitely be back. Parking is conveniently just outside the restaurant.

It always is discouraging to see the mark up on wine, makes it hard to buy a bottle when it's marked up over 100%. But everything else was lovely.

My husband and I enjoyed a date night at Kimi's. We chose to dine at the bar and the bartender, Kenn, was fantastic. He's a great bartender, but knows the menu well and made great recommendations.

Beautiful space, atrocious food. The menu sounds wonderful but the food was just no good. Portions were large, service was fine but we couldn’t finish any dish. It all tasted horrible. All on the cook, weird herds, bad combinations, heavy, just weird.

I almost never write bad reviews. I normally want to support the many restaurants I’m privileged to visit. Here I am simply perplexed. How could all the food taste that bad. I feel a responsibility to at least post this warning. I’m sorry to do it.

If you do go start small with one dish and a drink. You’ll know what to do from there.

Enjoyed another great dinner at Kimi's with a friend. We shared appetizers-clams, fondue, calamari and wedge salad. I love that they split the salad on two plates. The tables are well spaced and the noise level made it easy to talk.

Kimi's was a fantastic experience. My girlfriend and I were seated next to each other on a very comfortable love seat at a large table perfect for a romantic dinner. We started with a delicious fish and bread plate and cocktails, and then had a pork chop and salmon for the main course. Our server did a great job of timing our courses and keeping our drinks full.
