While I hope tonight was a fluke, my experience at this restaurant was the worst I have ever had. The menus state that they don’t have oysters available, they ran out of bread, told us 30-45 minutes after ordering that there was no branzino (special), and then forgot to put in the order for one of the replacement meals of the unavailable branzino. The waitress and managers offered endless soups in place of the bread, but this was over an hour after we were seated. Our food was mediocre across the board - one of the filet mignons was cooked too much, chicken was dry, mac & cheese was bland. The manager and waitress apologized for the slow service due to staffing shortages, and the two meals that replaced the branzino along with the soups were compensated. However, forgetting the replacement meal on top of the sheer length of time due to slow service and messy management were immensely frustrating. I would have preferred to be turned away at the door rather than sit starving at this restaurant for 2 hours, only to leave with a soured appetite.
This was a pretty disappointing experience. We arrived at 730pm. The restaurant was 3-4 full. Our appetizers were good and promptly delivered to our table. We waited over an hour for our entrees and the waiter disappeared for 40 mins until I asked another server to have him come to our table. The restaurant was about 1/2 full then. He claimed the kitchen was “slammed” and apologized, but that our food was being plated. Two other tables who ordered after us received their food while we waited another 10 minutes. Then our food came, and it was good and he again apologized that the kitchen was “slammed.” The live music in the loft was too loud and overpowered conversation with melancholy selections. We paid a normal 20% tip because the waiter claimed the problem was with the kitchen. For $220 for three people, I won’t be back any time soon when it takes over an hour to receive our three entrees.
Another wonderful dining experience with Kimi and her team.
My first time there with my girlfriend. It was absolutely wonderful from the food, drinks and service. Spacing was nice making us feel safe. It was and will be a very nice memory for us.
Overall portions were nice size, but no oysters for an Oyster House. The rib-eye wasn’t worth $64.
Kimis chop house has become one of my favorite places to eat don’t go out much but when I do this restaurant always come through with a great meal and service
Kimi’s never disappoints! Everyone I take, or go there with has the same reaction. This place is incredible. Delicious food with a variety of options, always great service in a beautiful environment. Add to that a wonderful host, Kimi!, and you have a wonderful dining experience! I love this place.
Kimi’s is our favorite restaurant in Salt Lake City. No question about it. We dine there every month.
Great place on a Friday evening. Live band, great energy. My steak came out cold but I ate it anyway.
Been walking by this place for months, finally had dinner and boy was it worth the anticipation. Atmosphere, Art, live Music playing, beautiful bar, cozy but spacious. Seriously my new fav place. The oysters- out of this world. The pork chop, omg best ever!
Great service, beautiful restaurant, loved the live music trio and fabulous food.
Steak was burnt on the outside, wife spit it out after one bite. Worse service and food we have ever eaten. Would never pay that much for so terrible food. On the positive side the ambiance is amazing, if they could get a good food this would be a great restaurant.
The ambiance was perfection. I have Found few restaurants in salt lake that have that level of comfort and Beauty. The live band was amazing and the perfect noise level. We were seated on a super comfy loveseat that made the experience so enjoyable. The food was top quality and extremely tasty. Cocktail selection was a bit boring but our bloody marys were great. Food is pricey, but better than most you can find.
Kim is fantastic and she’s created a top notch restaurant with a chic and relaxed atmosphere.
The food is always on spot and loved the live music.
Service was great. Food was good. Ambiance was nice. Price was not consistent with food and taste.
New years eve dinner was awesome.
Kimi’s has been a favourite of ours since the first time we went there due to the amazing service we have received there. Kimi is a hands-on owner and you will see her there gliding throughout the restaurant chatting to diners to make sure everything is as as good as it can possibly be. We hadn’t been there since February 2021 and when we went back this New Years Eve we were astounded that our waiter, Jeremy, who we have only had maybe twice before, greeted us warmly as if he had served us just the night before and even knew what drinks we had ordered 10 months ago. The prices are not outrageous for a fine dining experience but we reserve Kimi’s for special occasions. Enjoy!!!
Thanks for a lovely birthday dinner!
This was our second visit to Kimi's and had another very pleasant dining experience. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was very pleasant as they had a solo guitarist providing live music which was very good and at a great background noise level. I would highly recommend Kimi's to anyone looking for a nice place to have a meal or even enjoy a cocktail in a nice upscale setting. You have definitely earned a fan!
Great service & food. All around a wonderful experience. Mushroom soup, bruschetta, & wedge salad were all delicious!
The only problem was they were out of oysters. Other than that, it was perfect!!
We were celebrating our anniversary and Kimi's Chop House was the perfect place to mark the occasion. Our server, Angeliya was so attentive and helpful. She answered all of our questions and made recommendations on everything from drinks, to desserts and they were all delicious. The Creme Brulee was outstanding as was the halibut, salmon and pork chop. We could not have been more pleased with the delicious food that we received. It was well worth the money we spent. The atmosphere cannot be beat. The space is absolutely beautiful and Kimi's will now be our go to place when celebrating special events. We will absolutely be back. Thank you for the best anniversary celebratory dinner we have ever had.
Anniversary dinner. Delicious seafood, relaxing ambiance.
Great food and attentive service. Thanks Kimi!
Fantastic food, excellent service, and they make the best Cosmo in town! One of my favorite places to eat to celebrate a special occasion or the holidays!
Awesome atmosphere!! The food is excellent, and no one leaves hungry. Ken mixes the best dirty martinis in Salt Lake!
Great ambience and friendly and attentive service. The toast smögen was a great starter. I had the filet mignon, which was melt-in-your-mouth fantastic, and my girlfriend enjoyed her pork chop. The place was a bit louder than usual due to two largish tables having Christmas festivities, but nothing annoying.
Unfortunately that beautiful pork chop that they show on the website was very tough, chewy, and tasted sour. According to the waitress they switched their people that they get their pork from. The ribeye was excellent. The special that night was halibut that also was excellent. The macaroni and cheese was dry.It was my parents 44th wedding anniversary which we said to them in advance and nothing was acknowledged about that. If I would’ve known I would’ve done something myself.
Phenomenal!! The band was great too!
Delicious food! Great service! Food was out very quickly. Beautiful ambience. Will absolutely be making Kimi's a regular spot!
The food was great and our server was wonderful. They could use more staff but I get it that everywhere is struggling with staff shortages.
Wonderful food warm and inviting restaurant, great service
Great food and ambiance.
My dining at Kimi’s was a wonderful experience.
The ambiance is perfection.
The staff equally so.
The Wine & Cocktail list inticeing,
I really wanted to try them all.
Then there is the food. My partner had the Pork Chop and loved it, as did I.
I chose the Scallops, I’m so glad I did.
Every taste on the plate hit every note on my palette.
Yum. I will return.
Great food, many gf options. Great service. Beautiful building and ambiance.
Amazing food. Our service was fantastic. The space is beautiful. We will definitely be going back.
Amazing as always. Favorite place to celebrate special occasions.
We got a variety of things at our table including apps, entrees, dessert and alcohol. We came for our wedding anniversary with another couple and would definitely go again.
Wow. Walking into Kimi’s was like waking into an art gallery with fine dining. I was completely caught off guard by the overall ambiance…so elegant and classy. The live music was a nice touch and the service was outstanding. The food was excellent and even though the menu is somewhat small, I felt like there was plenty of variety (in addition to seafood). Overall, I am giving this a five star review…Kimi’s definitely earned it.
