Steakhouse
The classic Chicago steakhouse with Greek/Mediterranean flair. Female owned, non-corporate restaurant that was again awarded the 2019 wine spectator award of excellence.

For over 28 years Kinzie has been a Chicago institution for locals and visitors alike. Many of our staff have been with us for over 20 years. We welcome guests to a warm and cozy dining room—complete with excellent service, impeccable food and jazzy background tunes to blend together for a true Chicago experience. Recently the baton was passed to Nicole Flevaris and Andreas Tsakonas, the new owners at Kinzie. Andreas has owned and operated restaurants in Nafplio Greece for over 25 years and has inspired some of the new additions to the menu. From our salmon pastrami, seafood puzzle, vegan and vegetarian options we feel that there is something for everyone on the menu, not to mention what we are famous for, STEAKS! Come break bread with us !

Private dining rooms are available - contact us for more information.

Loved our waiter!!! Extremely personable and was very attentive to us especially when our steaks were delivered to our table. He asked us to cut into the steak to make sure they were prepared to our satisfaction. Could have used more seasoning in the potatoes and the mixed vegetables but overall excellent experience! Steaks were wonderful

My experience was a complete disaster. I ordered a grilled greek salad with seared tuna and waited well over 45 minutes for my food. When it arrived it had grilled tomatoes, scallions, onion bread and tuna that was cooked beyond seared. It was missing feta mousse, pickled cucumber and bell peppers as outlined on the menu. We asked about our order multiple times before it was finally brought out. The table next to us ordered and were told 20 minutes after they ordered that they were out of turkey for the turkey sandwich. There was obviously a significant kitchen issue, but rather than owning it and trying to see what they could do to help, the staff was completely oblivious.

We took my son hear for his birthday. He want Ed a good steak. He ended up getting the prime rib. It was perfect. Cooked just how he lines and a generous portion. I had the delmonaco ribeye. It was dry aged. My steak had plenty of flavor and was also cooked perfectly. I tried the creamy gorgonzola for dipping. It was delicious. We shared and order of mushrooms that were also very good. The service was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I recommend this place for a great dinning experience.

Our server was great! Food was phenomenal. My wife’s steak wasn’t originally cooked to her liking and they didn’t hesitate to have it remade, which she loved. It was an overall great experience.

No one was eating in the restaurant part. Everyone was in the bar part. That's where I ate. I asked the waiter/bartender between three options, and he was clear on going with the NY Strip. It was one of the best I've ever had. It's not cheap, but that's the way it is for most all the Chicago steak houses.

We enjoyed our meal at the Kinzie Chophouse. However, I asked for my steak to be medium rare to rare and it was more or less medium well. I couldn't really see because the lighting was too dim. The waiter asked me to check, so I cut into the middle of the steak and it was medium, but the sides were more on the well done side. I should have sent the steak back, but I wasn't sure, so I kept it and regretted that decision. I would try a different steakhouse next time I'm in Chicago.

Food was so slow to come out that we couldn’t finish our lunch before having to leave for our next meetings. Server had too many tables to serve so he couldn’t pay us any attention. No bread was offered. Only one drink refill the entire lunch. I’m hoping we just got there on an understaffed day and it’s not always like this.

Great food and fantastic service. Every time I come to Chicago I make sure to stop in for dinner. My favorite waiter/somm is Rafi. He's always giving me a taste of a new wine which is always delicious.

Not sure why the menu has changed a little bit. Always a fan but some of the menu changes do not seem consistent with a traditional steak and American fare restaurant.

The food was very poorly executed. We live 1/2 a block away, and despite the convenience, we will not be returning. Wish we hadn’t brought guests our first go.

We went here as an over night date night. Never been before n never will go back. They sat us in a booth across from the bar. Took forever for water n the server to come by. We were never asked about the specials (if they even had any). Never talked about the different items on the menu nor the different cuts of meat. Not a whole lot of selection either. Wasn’t impressed at all. Being rated 4.6 was over rated. I’d say more 4.4. Didn’t feel like a special night out. Also the server never asked if we like another glass of wine. Very disappointed. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone I know. Also we were very close to other ppl next to us & I felt like I was in their convo. One thing was nice was the hostess noticed we had no more water n went n got some for us towards the end of our meal.

Kinzie Chophouse did not disappoint. Second time around was equal to the high quality the first time I ate there. Steak and scallop were prepared spot on and the spinach risotto was sublime as was the salad.

Good job

We always go to Kinzie's when we are in Chicago so we took our 15-year old grandson there last week. The staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was terrific. Unfortunately the food was not up to the usual standard. The beef was over cooked and not as flavorful as usual. We will give Kinzie's another try the next time we are in Chicago and hopefully things will be better.

Great food and service. The sides were amazing along with the steak. My mom had the halibut and she said it was one of the best fish dishes she’s ever had. It’s elegant and quiet, the perfect ambience for a lovely dinner.
