Haven't been here a awhile. Was very underwhelmed by the food, the price was high. Felt like I could have gotten way better brunch somewhere else a lot cheaper.

This was our first time trying Hell's Kitchen. I had placed a reservation so we didn't have to wait, which was great. We were seated next to people that had a crying child... so we definately didn't have a peaceful meal. My lemon pancakes were good, but he forgot the syrup and then I had asked for a refill and was almost through with my meal when I received it. Just the little things, but they all add up.

Absolutely delightful. I really appreciate Hell's Kitchen. It took awhile to get used to the larger location. I do miss the old tiny space but I'm getting to love the newer location too.

I enjoy the Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar. I was a little frustrated with the young man working the bloody bar. There were 4 people ahead of me It took him eight minutes to put whatever they wanted on the rim of the glasses. When it was finally my turn be wanted to do mine in a group with folks behind me. I told him to please do mine so I can get back to my table. He tried to do it in a group still. The line continued to grow. I insisted then he finally did mine alone. By the time I got back to the table my meal was waiting for me. How frustrating.

It was our first time in Minneapolis and first time at Hells kitchen. We had no issues at all. We were excepted 15 minutes ahead of our reservation our waiter probably took care of us for drinks and took care of our order for hors d’oeuvres and food

Huge private party in the large dining area, so when we arrived for our reservations, we were sat in the small restaurant on the side .This was a huge bummer to us as we had friends visiting from out of state and told them how cool the restaurant décor and live music is- only to experience neither. Since the smaller dining room was packed it was super loud which made it hard for us to chat/talk with our server. I ordered a breakfast dish for dinner and it was great- as expected, our two guests ordered burgers and they were underwhelming. The juicy lucy cheese in the middle was only lukewarm at best and therefore made the burger a bit cooler than expected. Our server was great and recommended some great seasonal brews. We will definitely be back as we are huge fans of this place, but just did not have a good experience this last time- which made it our guests' least favorite meal of the weekend in comparison to other places we went. Would have loved to have heard there was a private party ahead of time so we could have maybe picked a different time or day to dine in.

Food overall was fantastic, I am celiac and they have a separate fryer for gluten free options. They also have gluten free buns. The food was all outstanding.. my only dissapointment was my bison Benedict was so cold when I got it!

We had a great birthday brunch at Hell's Kitchen. The server was friendly and attentive. The variety of food satisfied everyone in our party. And we enjoyed the jazz trio that was performing. It was a little noisy but we could still converse.

Historically I have had excellent food and service. This occasion the waiter clearly did not want to be there that day. He did not check on how our food was once served . My huevous rancheros was delicious but frankly room temperature. Another plate of eggs Benedict was about the same. That was disappointing but overall a good experience. Servers should be friendly and a bit out going in my mind.

Food was yummy as always. My second time. I had the nearly classic eggs Benedict and the hollandaise was nice and fluffy. I did the bison Benedict last time and was yummy. Both are my favorites. I did the Bloody Mary bar and love all the options. Only one recommendation is add shrimp cocktail as an option.
My boyfriend did the lemon ricotta like last time and had the mimosa bar. He got a free signature cocktail for his bday. Don’t forget to mention it’s a bday. Can’t deny yourself a free cocktail. I will definitely come back maybe for lunch time

I’ve always enjoyed this place. Authentic. Had a neat local proud Minneapolis character to it. Unique food items that use ingredients that are local to Minnesota. Affordable beers. Neat “random” cocktail options (or hey choose from the menu). I’ll continue to go there!

We were 1 of 3 groups waiting for a table. After about 25 minutes I walked around the restaurant and there was literally 15 open tables. We waited until exactly 8:00pm and were seated. The host acted like a real diva. By 8:30 we still hadn’t ordered. Cheese curds and ribs were good but the rest of the food was gross. Mixed greens were soggy. Cheese pear sandwich was cold. Even the Bloody Mary was bad. They had a band playing which was nice. Our server was nice enough but we won’t be back for dinner.

Our food was delicious! We had the lemon ricotta hot cakes, as well as the Ruben with gluten free bread! Our only complaint was the noise level. We were seated very close to the live music and had to yell to hear each other, which got old.

The prices were too high. The food quality was average, nothing special. Would not go back based on experience today. Expectations completely shattered once we received our Eggs Benedict with a completely hard yolk and over cooked bison. For a $14.95 price tag you think they would be able to serve a decent Eggs Benedict. When brought to the attention of our server, the remedy was to bring another egg which meant the rest of your food would get cold by the time they brought another egg or we could get something off the bill. The something off the bill amounted to $3 and some change off a $68 bill. The only food I enjoyed eating was the sausage bread. Everything else fell short. The Bloody Mary had too much salt in it. And $14.95 for a nothing special BLT sandwich is ridiculous.

Every New Year’s Eve, my kids and I go to Hell’s Kitchen for a year-end get-together. Even though they’re adults now, with their own busy lives, we pick a time that day we can all go. It’s always a great experience.
