This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Kinmont is the very first sustainable fish and seafood restaurant in Chicago. We believe in ethical fishing practices, and feature rough fish — some of the most sustainable on the planet. Our menu is ever-changing, as we source seafood daily and supplement local fish with ethically sourced product from both coasts. While seafood is our focus, there's still plenty of food for landlubbers, including vegetables, meats and our celebrated burger.

New Year's Eve prix fixe dinner. The seafood appetizer was delicious. There was a choice of additional courses and the main was either a filet mignon or skate wing. It was all good, though a little expensive. It is good for a splurge once in a while.

My fiance and I decided to check out Kinmont after receiving a Groupon for the restaurant. I'm an avid seafood lover & my fiance is just starting out so after reading plenty of wonderful reviews, we decided it out be a great spot! The location of the restaurant is a bit secluded so it was no surprise that we were asked several times how we had heard of Kinmont upon arrival. We were taken to our table & cold tap water (with the option for sparkling) was brought swiftly to the table. I could see the waiter giving my fiance a quizzical look & he proceed to refer to us both as "ladies" for the remainder of the evening. Deeply embarrassed by the slip, my baby-faced MALE fiance didn't want to correct our waiter and let it slide for the rest of the night (mostly because we didn't realize we would be addressed as such each and every time our waiter approached the table).
We took advantage of half-off bottles of wine night (most week nights have pretty awesome specials) and I enjoyed a really fabulous Eric Louis sauvignon blanc, chilled table side. To eat we agreed to share the King Crab legs and lobster roll. For an unexplained reason the Crab came out quite a bit later than the roll (even though we asked that they be brought together) but our server was apologetic and the food was tremendous regardless. The roll was buttery and fresh, the crab leg meat was nestled nicely in shell and the mustard that accompanied them was DIVINE. The bill would have been steep had it not been for the wine special, but each item was priced in a way that reflected its quality.
Kinmont would have easily been given a 5 star review if it were based on food alone, however; the snaffu with our waiter put a bit of a damper on the evening for us. Service was otherwise wonderful and I would highly recommend dining at Kinmont and will most likely return again - all I would say is that servers should adopt more gender neutral language when addressing guests especially if a guest has you guessing!

Great cozy spot. Overall an excellent dining experience. We had to wait a bit early on for the waiter to attend to us, but the GM noticed and immediately took care of us and the service after that was awesome. Food was very good! Get the crab hush puppies!

It was quiet but wouldn't recommend for a date night. Service was okay. Good for dollar oyster night. Menu was limited.

This was our third visit to Kinmont, and it was better than any previous visit. Our server was fabulous, the atmosphere cozy, the food lovely. I'll be returning until I figure out the story of how Margo the fox who sits above the bar got her name.

Went to Kinmont to celebrate a birthday. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. Entrees were creative and delicious and the beignets were to die for. Would recommend to a friend and would go there again.

My wife and I came on a date night and enjoyed our time very much. We were welcomed warmly and led to our table where our server was very kind and personable to us. My wife ordered oysters and the squid ink gnocchi, I had the autumn soup and the catch of the day (Lake Michigan Trout). The food was delicious, though it did take a tiny bit longer than I would have liked. However, it was worth the wait. The evening manager was a little pushy about dessert, but all in all, it didn't bother me much. We will certainly be coming back again!

It's was my birthday an I had a party of 13, they were able to comfortably accommodate a us. It was the perfect choice for my friends who don't eat beef or pork, everyone was happy with their meal! I had the oysters, crabs legs an trout all were absolutely amazing the trout was to die for an the black eyed peas were a perfect compliment to the dish! I will be back very soon!
