Wonderful place for about any type of food. Pastas, steaks, seafood... All good. Best sea scallops I have found anywhere. Most tender calamari also.

I've liked Kinzie Chophouse for sometime. The location is great for us suburbanites who don't like the fuss of finding parking, and the craziness of downtown. The food is always good and the service is top-notched. On this visit, I brought a physician mentor of mine who was in-town for a meeting. She said she would bring others there. I said the risotto was my favorite and she agreed it was delicious. Its a great choice and its very reasonable for the quality of food you receive.

Still the BEST!
There are thousands of fantastic restaurants in the city of Chicago, however, Kinzie Chophouse is the BEST! The service is friendly and efficient.
The food is OUTSTANDING! They always have a prix fixe meal option that is superb. The food is tasty and cooked to perfection.
The steaks are fantastic, and they have vegan options! The meatball appetizer is a delicious surprise!
I highly recommend you put this restaurant on your list!

I really wanted to like this place after so many good reviews. I realize restaurants have bad nights and this was one of them. 20 minutes for a waiter to come by after being seated. Slow service with little attention to the details. Food was just ok. In a city packed with great restaurants they need to do much better for me to return

The evening started out with very slow service, but once that was addressed with front desk, never had a problem again. Christine the manager was great explaining the confusion and the evening turned out great. I can highly recommend the blackened scallops as an appetizer. Steaks were cooked perfectly and the homemade Limoncello was fantastic. I would certainly go back agin.

We spent Spring Break in Chicago. Our family (kids 9, 13, 17, and 19) likes to eat. During this trip we went to Frontera Grill, Au Cheval, Girl and the Goat, Roister, Sunda and Kinzie Chophouse. All were great- but Kinzie Chophouse was the BEST meal of our trip. Rafael was our server and he was fantastic. The place is cool- really nice atmosphere, but not snooty. We were welcomed at the bar and everyone was pleasant. The food was ridiculously good. We had several apps, filets, strips, lobster, and 4-5 sides. Not one dish disappointed. Next time in Chicago- this is the one place we will definitely go back to. I don't write reviews ... but this meal/experience was that good.

We had one dinner opportunity to thank our friends/hosts in Chicago, see our college-going son, and reminisce about our own time living in the city several years ago. Kinzie Chophouse was the perfect venue for all those objectives. Service was outstanding, food was delicious (even for the non-meat-eaters), and our meal brought back memories, not just of great meals we've had there in the past, but of many things we continue to love about being in Chicago.

We were there once before, and it was stellar—nice neighborhood Chicago steakhouse experience. Excellent food, expensive but not ridiculous.

This time, not so much. Service was slow—long absences followed by rushed interactions. Food seemed perfunctory. Meat was tough (I ordered dry aged steak), and undercooked compared to other steakhouses. The waiter was inattentive, made more than one mistake, including the type of steak one of us ordered. They did do service recovery ok.

At this price point, and in Chicago, they need to do better. It was not crowded. Desserts were good. Adequate, but I can no longer recommend it to my friends.

Food was great, unfortunately the service, wasn't. The steaks were prepared incorrectly, my GF steak was cooked the way I wanted it and vice versa. My GF's side was forgotten and arrived 10 minutes after the steak. Waiter no where around, never asked for us if we'd like more wine etc. Long wait times for the waiter to come post dinner, asked for a dessert menu, waited, ordered a chocolate/hazelnut desert, got a different chocolate cake desert than we ordered... All the food was good once it arrived... Unfortunate.

After reading several reviews thought we might give it a try. Our server Rob was delightful. We ordered steaks that were over cooked and they remade them for us and gave us an appetizer while they remade our meal. They brought us a few aperitifs and a desert later on. Silly mistake on the cooks part but the staff made it a great reason to return.

This is a well established Chicago Steakhouse. The service is competent, friendly, and experienced. The beef comes in all the usual sizes and shapes - to satisfy your mood. They are appropriately proud of the way their steaks are prepared. Split a salad to get started! It is a conversation-friendly atmosphere which is a scarce treasure! The tables are just a tad too crowded - my only environmental problem.

The food and both steaks we had were delicious, you can get dry aged and wet steak.

Dessert is a good price and Their VIP program is a good idea.

I’m a steak professional. The meat here was not as thick as I would have preferred, but it was expertly cooked and presented. The side was perfect, as was the accoutrement.

Great atmosphere - sublime service. I’ve been to Chicago Cut and Chop within the last 6 months - this ranks.
