I had an 8:30pm at 10:30pm we still did not have our meals. When the food finally arrived steak were burnt. We got up and walked out the slowest most unorganized place ever.

Went there for Valentine’s Day. Wait for food was way too long. The manager and 2 other girls kept checking to see if we received our food yet which was another red flag. steak was undercooked- They recooked it and gave us 2 complimentary truffle cookies. Overall not much of an “I’m sorry.” But overall don’t waste your time and money on this place. We live around the corner from this place and have wanted to come for over a year. Sad to say we will not be back.

We went to Kenzie for Valentine’s Day and overall had a really good time. The restaurant was busy, but had a nice noise level and overall vibe to it. The service was very good - we were taken care of and enjoyed our waiter’s friendly approach very much. The drinks were good, and we enjoyed the complimentary bread. Unfortunately, both of our steaks were overdone. We both ordered medium rare, and ended up with dinner that was much more medium well. Not sure if that was due to the business of the holiday or not, but both were over cooked. We also thought it was a bit expensive for what you got especially given that the meat wasn’t prepared properly. Overall it was a good meal, but we aren’t sure if we will be back.

Kinzie has become one of my "must visit" every time I get a chance to be in Chicago. From the minute you walk in the door you know you are "at the right place." Always a very warm welcome. If you have a reservation they always have your table ready. You will NEVER hear "welcome your table will be ready soon" NO they plan perfectly and it just makes you feel at home.

The wait staff is second to none. The staff is trained and know how to make you feel welcome. They are never to far away but never in your face. And, their knowledge of the both the food menu and the wine list is amazing.

Finally, a little about the food. They take great pride making every dish custom ordered. They are open to changes and only wants to ensure your dining experience is perfect. Of course the steaks are amazing and flavorful but so are the other options and sides.

This is worth the trip to downtown. You will not be disappointed.

All six of us enjoyed our business lunch and all of our various entrees varying from meatloaf, the reuben, herb chicken breast to Salads. We also chose the shrimp & beef meatballs for appetizers, as well as the crispy fried calamari. Not being a fan of calamari, I thought this calamari was excellent. Kinzie Chophouse - never a disappointment.

The service was very good and very attentive. Thank you Jose. Adding one more extension of gratitude; Jose brought a lovely cheese cake with happy birthday written on the plate for one our persons in our party. Very sweet.

I made reservations for my birthday dinner and everything was great. I’ve been to Kinzie a few times and order delivery from them as well. Great food, our waiter was great and I’m positive that I’ll be back! If you’re looking for a steak have them bring out the steak plate and they’ll go over their cuts and even tell you where the meat comes from.

I hadn't been to Kinzie Chophouse for dinner in some time - probably because there are so many new steak places. Put simply, everything about the evening was first class. The staff was incredibly attentive and the food was excellent. If you haven't been recently, it is well worth a return visit.

My husband and I went for our second New Year's Eve in a row. We have been to many steakhouses in Chicago, and Kinzie Chophouse is a very comfortable, non-pretentious restaurant with great food. The staff are all incredible personable and attentive, the food is excellent, and the value is amazing. You will not regret dining here.

We always enjoy dining at Kinzie Chophouse, never disappointed. This time my wife and I ordered one of the specials; a filet of beef with two scallops and mashed potatoes.
As always, the steak was done to perfection as were the scallops. We feel that when it comes to having a steak in Chicago, Kinzie hands down is probably the best!!! But their meatloaf and jalapeño pork tenderloin is equally delicious. Don’t forget the mushroom tart as a appetizer! Outstanding wine selection and unique cocktails!
The hostess couldn’t have nicer or friendlier, our waiter was spot on!

Have not been here in a while but WOW, what an amazing dinner ….. They never disappoint, the chef and crew where "spot on" for our dinner …. The sauces are a bonus to your food experience, and you must try at least two {2} ….. So full we had to pass on desert, but I'm sure that would have been an explosion of taste as well …. Great service too … The whole package …. Must try if you haven't already …..

An amazing combination of hospitality, professional service, and incredibly delicious food! The host immediately greeted me, seated me, and signaled the wait staff that I was at my table. Instantly I was approached by a waiter whose professional demeanor almost made me do a double-take, as I had forgotten professional service of this caliber still existed! As this was my first visit, and I had come to this restaurant precisely for a steak, I asked about the various steak selections. The choices were described in clear, simple detail, and when I had made my selection, various side dishes were suggested which would pair well with my entree. The steak was done perfectly to my specification, the sides paired magnificently, the wine was outstanding. When I left, I thought to myself, there was nothing about this meal that could possibly have been improved upon. This is now my absolute "go to" steakhouse in Chicago!
