It took ages to pick up the order. Tables are packed and it is noisy. Waiting time also long and cold air blowing from the ceiling. This was at least switched off on request.

On the positive side, the food was very good and our waiter, Insung, was very nice and tried hard. However, there are insufficient number of waiters in the restaurant. They work under permanent stress.

The Delmonico steak was excellent and I appreciate the server recommending it even though it was among the least expensive cuts on the menu.

I happily sat in the bar area which was fine until a large office group gathered. They did nothing wrong, but this accounts for it being way too loud for my preferences.

We both got the spring tasting menu, and the Wagyu steak was delicious and cooked to perfection. Portions on this menu did not leave enough for leftovers, but neither of us were hungry at the end of the meal. Service was great; my water glass was never less than half full the entire meal. Excited to go back again soon!

Went for Mother’s Day/my birthday. They gave great, adorable goodies to all the mothers for Mother’s Day. It was super and thoughtful. However, I felt as though my birthday was completely disregarded. Food was very good. Price was even better. Our waiter did a good job.

We were very pleased with Kinzie Chophouse... The host was very gracious, the server was lively and fun. They had a special mother's day gift which was absolutely lovely, nothing skimpy and a nice glass of champagne as well. We had soups, steaks, salmon and a children's meal. Not to mention wine, beer and dessert. Very impressed that they are able to make a steak well done without charring that comes out tender. They also did not put through excuses like lots of steak houses often do when they are incapable of guaranteeing a steak without charring. We asked for a bake finish, no pink, no char and it was perfect. Each person has their preference and for them to do this so well, we will be recommending them. Sure, people will say that a steak should not be well done, but that's their taste and opinion, when there are many of us that like ours well done and will ask for med well because we don't want it charred. Kinzie pays attention. Everything was well done, will return and highly recommend.

Normally Kinzie Chop House is a great and wonderful experience
On this occasion on 4/28/2018; we were set close to the door, it was very cold. when we said something, nothing was done.
We were not given the normal greeting as in the past. our salads & food was late, the food was not done the way we asked, people who were seated after us were served beverages, salads and deserts before we were, they were finished with their meal before we received our Main course. (They had ordered basically the same as our party "Steak"; I believe they simply forgot about us, and forgot to enter our order.
I am hoping that they improve their attentiveness to service , detail and quality food That we have enjoyed in the past and is what they are known for. As for this last visit they get a grade of D-.

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.
