Went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. There were seven of us. We couldn't have been treated better. The experience was quite special. Awesome Table. Fantastic service. Waiter was extremely attentive and friendly. You'll be back. We've been to the Gibson's and Fleming's in this was by far the best

My 8 oz. Filet, ordered as "Medium well" was thoroughly well done and a bit bland from a seasoning perspective. My wife's 6 oz. Filet, ordered as "Medium" was medium-rare and also a bit bland. For our Anniversary (43 yrs) they did provide a delightful dessert at no charge.

To start off our evening we had the Kalahari which was very good... had it gotten there sooner it might have been a tad bit better. The food over all was very good but the service is rough. For being a “high end” restaurant the service does not meet the price of the food. The atmosphere was pretty food. The food was nothing to complain about but the service just wasn’t good. I mean you could go to a lot cheaper restaurants for the price and have 10x better service.

Had a very nice lung at Kinzie Chophouse. They have an array of sandwiches at lunch time. The meatball sandwich was quite good. Don't miss the calamari appetizer as they were well done - very light and airy.

Steak was cold and didn’t taste right. Broccoli was great, but was way too much - not a side dish. Tables way too close together - difficult to walk. Server was great.

This local but famous stakhouse serves prime steaks, wet or dry aged. I had dry aged, and my friend chose wet one. Delicious either.
Caveat against amazing appetizers!
We took Gorgonzola mushroom pie, pictured, and fried calamari. It was too much portion for us, but we could not stop eating.
Desserts were average alike other prime steakhouses serve.
Receptionist and servers were very friendly and attentive.
Recommend.

Had not been to Kinzie Chop House in probably 5 years. Don't know why I waited so long to return! Food was phenomenal. Service was exceptional. We sat in the bar for dinner. Granted, we were the only table on a Sunday night, but Craig, the bartender/server was great. Answered all are questions on food and wine. Make a couple recommendations, that were spot on. Will definitely put Kinzie Chop House back in the rotation!

Kinzies’ did not disappoint! We were greeted quickly and were able to sit on the patio to enjoy the evening. The wait staff was prompt and courteous. Chase was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations while relating with us. We were treated like part of the family which was refreshing.
I had guests in from out of town who are picky about their meat. They were in heaven. The Mac and Cheese was out of this world. The premium ingredients and meats used was evident.
Our only disappointment was that we had no room left for dessert!!!

The food was excellent and you got a lot of bang for your buck considering this is a nice high end restaurant, the wedge salad is very good and quite substantial, I had the short ribs very good, one of has had the prime rib and it was very good and the grilled meat loaf also a good choice. The service was also very good.

It took ages to pick up the order. Tables are packed and it is noisy. Waiting time also long and cold air blowing from the ceiling. This was at least switched off on request.

On the positive side, the food was very good and our waiter, Insung, was very nice and tried hard. However, there are insufficient number of waiters in the restaurant. They work under permanent stress.

The Delmonico steak was excellent and I appreciate the server recommending it even though it was among the least expensive cuts on the menu.

I happily sat in the bar area which was fine until a large office group gathered. They did nothing wrong, but this accounts for it being way too loud for my preferences.

We both got the spring tasting menu, and the Wagyu steak was delicious and cooked to perfection. Portions on this menu did not leave enough for leftovers, but neither of us were hungry at the end of the meal. Service was great; my water glass was never less than half full the entire meal. Excited to go back again soon!

We were very pleased with Kinzie Chophouse... The host was very gracious, the server was lively and fun. They had a special mother's day gift which was absolutely lovely, nothing skimpy and a nice glass of champagne as well. We had soups, steaks, salmon and a children's meal. Not to mention wine, beer and dessert. Very impressed that they are able to make a steak well done without charring that comes out tender. They also did not put through excuses like lots of steak houses often do when they are incapable of guaranteeing a steak without charring. We asked for a bake finish, no pink, no char and it was perfect. Each person has their preference and for them to do this so well, we will be recommending them. Sure, people will say that a steak should not be well done, but that's their taste and opinion, when there are many of us that like ours well done and will ask for med well because we don't want it charred. Kinzie pays attention. Everything was well done, will return and highly recommend.
