Kimi's Chop & Oyster House
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.
Good job for a busy New Years Eve. Could have had more wait staff.
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.
My husband and I had a wonderful date at Kimi's. The service was great, the atmosphere and the flavors of the food were my favorite part about this dining experience.
Excellent! Our server was a little too chatty, but delivered timely and well. Food was great. Room was lovely. Able to chat with no trouble hearing. A great special night out.
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.
Great food. Great atmosphere.
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah merdier. Merde chiant
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.
Fantastic ambiance and food was on point!! We loved it and will continue to come back! Thanks Kimi!!
Great service- our group was very we’ll attended to and the menu selections were great. The appetizers including oysters were very good. Our group of eight was more than satisfied- we highly recommend Kimi’s.
Memorable Thanksgiving meal. Kimi has the room looking spectacular for the holidays. One of our local fine dinning gems. Romantic; delicious!
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.
We held a customer lunch at Kimi's and it could not of worked out better, the service, food, and ambience made the customer feel important and appreciated the lunch.
Amazing food and very polite staff who were friendly and helpful with the menu. Will def be coming back
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!
Kimi was lovely. The staff and food were perfect. This is a wonderful venue for a special occasion. And free parking to boot!
Loved it. Service and food were excellent! Kimi was clearly highly engaged and making sure all was well!
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.
Good was delicious and service was prompt and lovely. It was very quiet, not a busy night. I hope this business stays in Sugarhouse!!
It is always one of our favorite places. Excellent food, excellent ambiance.
The food was great and the Mixologist makes the best Old Fashion in Salt Lake!
Fantastic! Highly recommend server Michelle and her hilarious personality! Best oysters in Utah!
What a Great evening, my girl friend has said we need to go back at least once a day since we ate here. Very enjoyable from the moment we walked in.
We went to Kimi’s ‘s for our anniversary dinner after Reading reviews. We were not disappointed! We loved the atmosphere, our service was great, and the food was delicious we will definitely be going back!
Absolutely love this place - the only complaint was that the weather was not nice enough to sit on the patio ;)
One of my new favorites when I come into town! Kimi was so sweet! She has done an amazing job!!!
Kimi’s always has great food and outstanding service. My favorite SLC restaurant.
Absolutely amazing!! Kimi knows how to make things perfect!
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.
BY FAR THE BEST FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE IN UTAH!
Brought my Mom here for her birthday. Wonderful food and service. Cozy seating made it easy to chat. Will definitely be recommending Kimi's to friends!
Excellent service and delicious food! The fondue was amazing. Our first visit and will definitely be back!
