Kinzie Chophouse Ratings and Reviews
Ate here for a business dinner while in town for a conference. The food was AMAZING! The dry aged Kansas City steak was out of this world and the shaved brussel sprouts with bacon maple demi-glaze were a serious trip to flavor town. One of our party had the special which came with a soup, steak, and dessert. She raved about the golden soup (cauliflower and turmeric) the rest of the night. Prices are comparable or slightly less than more well-known steakhouses in Chicago.The decor is clean and inviting with soft lighting that sets a very relaxed atmosphere. The wait staff was very attentive albeit somewhat cold and they did take longer than we would have liked to greet us after being seated, hence the four stars. I also must mention that the bread basket they bring has the most unique bread I have ever had at a "we give free bread" restaurant. Delightful little, yet oddly shaped, rolls with a touch of sweetness and crispy shards of baked phyllo or pastry crust. just a fun, original touch to a great restaurant with excellent food.
Outstanding service...there was a fairly loud party in the back private dining room near where we were originally seated. The staff realized it was too loud for our small family and they moved us to a quieter area without us asking. Our waiter was extremely friendly and accommodating to our menu requests. The room is casually elegant but not stuffy. The meal itself was very good. Our second time here and we will definitely return.
We have come to Kinzie for years. For ourselves and we have brought friends from outside the area.
Kinzie is my wife's "Bad day restaurant". Sometimes she gets in the car and says she has had an awful day and all she wants is a martini and a veal chop. This is her favorite meal at Kinzie. 45 to 60 minutes later, she is a much happier woman with an improved view.
I can't say enough good things about Kinzie Chophouse. My fiance and I have become regulars at this spot and this past weekend, we brought another couple with us and had an incredible experience. Our server was super knowledgeable on wine and let us try one of his favorites from the tasting refrigerator on the side of the lounge. On top of that, he gave our table a complimentary dessert to celebrate both of our recent engagements :) Love this spot for so many reasons! Can't wait for patio season!
Spent the evening here post theatre for a second anniversary dinner. The staff promptly seated us at our reserved, semi-private table that we requested/reserved.
The server provided extreme detail of the daily special and chef's choice. Allowed us time to review the menu, and also staggered our appetizers and entrees from being served too close together. The menu is quite vast with an array of pastas, seafood, and steaks. They even give a steak replica presentation of the steak cuts available that night.
Candlelight, white table cloth environment. Clothing may need to be business casual to formal. I would not suggest jeans unless paired with a button down and blazer, or sweater and tie. They did not, however, make this a requirement; so come as you please!
Ambiance started fairly quite with only 3 party of guest in the house. Got a little more noisy, but still bearable for intimate conversation as the restaurant filled. Would definitely recommend making a reservation for quick seating.
This was our first visit to Kinzie Chophouse. It was a perfect meal for a great occasion. Craig our waiter- in the bar area- was attentive and very helpful talking us through the wine, cocktail and dinner menu. 3 of us ordered steak- a filet, a Dry aged Delmonico and a Dry Aged KC Strip. All cooked to perfection- between Medium and Rare +. My wife had the halibut which she said was delicious- no surprise! My son enjoyed his Nutty Rider Mixed drink which Craig indicated was new to the menu- and one created by he and the team. A wonderful evening! Thanks. Have a safe and successful week.
Our waiter was super attentive and made us feel very comfortable during our dining experience. Our waiter warned us that the prime rib that evening was at a medium, my boyfriend initially wanted a medium rare cook, which was very kind of him but the medium prime rib was very tough to eat (very dry and bland). So we will probably be avoiding the prime rib next time.
KscH is knocking it out of he park ..... Steaks are top notch and the sauces are to die for .... I don't work downtown anymore, so when I do and it is dinner time Kinzie is my first choice .... The staff is also A+ for there attentiveness and knowledge of the steaks and menu ....
From the time we walked into the restaurant, the service was outstanding. The hostess gave a warm greeting and a woman came up to us in the bar area asking us if she could help us get a drink. The steaks and lamb chops were excellent. I wanted to make sure that the lamb chops were rib, not loin, and the waiter went and showed me so I could make the decision. The autumn tasting menu was a great value and the scallops were very tasty. The menu is very diverse and the pricing is reasonable for what you get. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit again!
This has been our go to place for several years when we attend the One of a Kind Show across the street at the Mart. As a matter of fact, I make these reservations before I secure seats on the AMTRAK from western Illinois. Great service, welcoming greeting at the door, and a menu that appeals to our variety of tastes. Kinzie Chop House is a refreshing respite from all the hustle and bustle of the show. See you next year!
Although our food was excellent dining here was a frustrating experience. We arrived 20 minutes prior to our 9:00 pm reservation and were not seated until 9:20. We were not acknowledged by our waiter until 9:48 pm. We had to request the bread baskets that are normally brought when water is served. Our waiter was not friendly and seemed annoyed with waiting on us. We had to ask questions about the menu, he did not offer suggestions, specials, etc. After finally serving our drinks, he disappeared for another 10 minutes although we told him we were ready to order. Finally received our food at 10:30 pm. When paying he shorted one of our party $40.00 change. When called on it he replied, oh yeah. We asked for the manager when leaving and she didn't seem to care much for our complaints. Our party was 8 women ages 50 - 60 on a week-end shopping trip. Kinzie Chop House came highly recommended and we were very disappointed with the service.
Wonderful restaurant. We come to Chicago often and this will be one of our "go to" places for sure! We had the rib eye & it was very tender and flavorful , also tried the broccoli w/ gouda & highly recommend the mac & cheese. Everything we tried was very good.
