Excellent food and service. In town for business, and this is the perfect spot for a group of 8 colleagues to get a traditional Chicago steak dinner in a quiet atmosphere where the whole group can converse and hear each other at both ends of the table.

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!

Went to the Chophouse for my father’s 65th birthday. My father is not big on dining out so I was a little hesitant about choosing this spot, but the staff and chef made this experience a really memorable one for us. They were patient and attentive throughout the whole meal and really made the night a great one.

We live in the neighborhood and go regularly. Food is always great, service is attentive, and a nice, quiet atmosphere. We are inevitably pleased. It's reasonably priced for a steakhouse, but it's a little expensive for a neighborhood spot--although that's pretty much how we use it. Still, it would equally well for a special occasion.

My boyfriend and I were very happy with our experience. Our waiter was very energetic, friendly, and helpful. The food tasted great, got a steak, the halibut, and the cheese potato puff. The waiter did accidentally forget our side and then brought the wrong one. He was very apologetic and nice and we eventually got it and enjoyed it but I was pretty full at that point so didn’t eat much of it. We shared the carrot cake for dessert and polished that off, so good! Definitely enjoyed the dinner and would go back again.

Great food and service. Sides are an addition when ordering a steak meal and therefore price can mount up very quickly and
make it expensive overall.

and the Delmonico's had tough lines of Grizzle that their knives couldn't cut.

Came here for my birthday dinner and it was a great experience! The ambiance is very cozy and the service was excellent! Our steaks were great and very tender. We started with deviled eggs they were not our favorite but still tasty will refinery try a different starter next time but can’t wait to go back!

Though the food was absolutely delicious, the service was atrocious. For starters, we had a 7:15pm reservation. We arrived at 7:00pm and checked in. After checking back with the hostess 2 times, they finally sat us down at 8:55pm. Of course they apologized profusely and sat us at a wonderful cozy booth. When making our reservations we said we were there celebrating our Anniversary. No one said a word. Not a congratulations or anything.
Our waiter, Troy, came by to take our drink order. He then disappeared for so long that my husband was going to get up to grab our drinks that were waiting at the bar. We ordered our appetizers and again he disappeared. When we got our appetizers i asked for some extra crackers because the feta/olive dip only came with 4 crostini’s. By the time he showed up again, we had to remind him about the crackers because he had never brought them by the first time we asked. He finally took our dinner order after we had eaten all our appetizers. We had asked for a side of mashed potatoes and they never showed up. Thankfully just as he forgot them, he forgot to add them to the bill. Whenever he’d resurface, he’d apologize as if he meant it. The problem was you could see him be overly attentive to the 2 tables behind us and completely ignore our table of 4. When dinner was over we asked to see the dessert menu, but nothing caught our eye. We also had to ask for water because our cups had run dry. I would have thought they would have brought a little something sweet for our Anniversary, but like I said, they never even acknowledged that it was our anniversary. At any rate, the service, from the time we got there and were left waiting way too long for having had a reservation, was below par. Not sure we will return. We did leave Troy a note saying, “It would have been nice if you would have paid a little attention to us!!”
