I said we were celebrating a birthday when I made the reservations but our server or the staff never acknowledged it. I was waiting the entire night and it never happened. I was so disappointed.

Amazing meal. From the cocktails to salads and steaks to sides the food was outstanding. Prices were as you’d expect from a steakhouse in the city. The disappointing part was the service. While the staff was very friendly, we had to continually ask for water refills, a fresh cocktail, etc. overall it was a great experience, but I believe they have a bit of work to do to support the amazing meal with more attentive service.

We had a reservation for 7pm so we wnt to teh bar area and orderd a drink. Space was limited so it was a bit awkward to stand right where people were seated at tables. We were seated approximately 20 minutes later. We really liked the food and the service by Emilie was outstanding - HIGHLY recommend her. She didn't rush us at all and was just great. My biggest complaint about dinner was being seated at a table that was too small for 4. The table would have been appropriate for 2, that made it uncomfortable and we were there for quite some time. The other recommendation I'd give is thta when we called about parking, we were told to park across the street and they would validate the ticket. When we paid for parking, we only received a $3 discount. Parking was over $50 so plan accordingly!

For three of us food was mostly on point however my steak was a little over cooked and I didn’t send it back. Try the Brussels! Creamed Spinach has too much liquid. Drinks were slow to get to the table. Not sure why but service was off!

This was our first visit to Kinzie Chophouse and we will return! The service from Troy was impeccable and Susan Frasca delivers a creative, flavorful twist on classic entrees. The 25th anniversary Gold cut Ribeye filet rivals any steak! The Italian herb dinner rolls are perfect. Just a delicious experience

My boyfriend loves steak so for his birthday I gave him 2 options and he chose Kinzie Chop House. The food was AMAZING! Perfect portions and priced reasonably. The only thing I was not impressed with, was I had motioned to the server it was his birthday, and she clearly understood, and nothing was done. I don't know if Kinzie does stuff for birthdays but either way, that was a little disappointing. Otherwise it was a great experience and I've already spread the word. I would definitely return!

I had the crab cake sandwich for lunch and it was the best I've had. The remoulade had just enough spice (it comes on the side) and the pretzel bun was a good twist. I came here for a business lunch with a few clients and it was a good location with good food options, very respectable yet friendly -- I just thought it was a little on the noisy side. I'd give it a 4.5 if possible.

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.
