Lemon Ricotta Waffle
Our famous Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes, but a Waffle. Crisp, fluffy, light and delicious. Comes with mixed berries and powdered sugar.
Lemon Ricotta isn't just for hotcakes anymore! All the flavors of our signature breakfast dish, in a perfectly creamy cheesecake.
We went on a Sunday morning for a music brunch. Sarah Morris and her group were amazing to listen to in that space. Love the vibe with a modern feel. I had the huevos rancheros and was disappointed how much onion was in the dish. Others were happy with their food. Bloody mary was exceptional in spice. Would go again for the music!
Thank you for visiting and for sharing your kind words and thoughts. We love having local musicians grace our stage (Sarah Morris really is a treasure, isn't she?) during brunch; it's such a unique experience! We're glad you enjoyed your time in Hell's Kitchen and hope we get the chance to see you again for a future live music brunch.
Excellent food a service. We came two days in a row! Live music during breakfast made this meal out with friends extra special. Love the renovations, too!
Thank you so much! It always makes our hearts sing to hear when people enjoy our restaurant so much that they visit twice in a row--we're thrilled that you had a great time with your friends, and we hope we get the chance to see you again in the future.
So much fun being there, great service, very accommodating. my sister had a birthday, I am having my birthday, were full after the meal, but still offered the token for the photo booth. That worked nicely for us. Great food to end our girls weekend on, thanks!
Thank you for joining us for such a special occasion; we're glad we could make this birthday celebration memorable and we hope you'll consider returning for future events or just regular meals out to eat!
Great array of gluten free options and great service.
Thanks for visiting and for trusting us to offer a great gluten-free-friendly dining experience. While we're not a dedicated GF facility, our staff is dedicated to offering as safe and comfortable an experience as we reasonably can. We hope we get the chance to serve you again!
Great food and great service! The sausage bread is amazing!
Thank you for visiting and for sharing your kind words about our service and our sausage bread--we hope we get to serve you again in the future!
Great brunch. The bison Benedict was nom.
Thanks so much for your kind words and for visiting our restaurant. We're so happy you loved the Bison Benedict (it's been on our menu since we opened in 2002), and we hope you'll consider returning in the future!
Beautiful place beautiful bar nice ambiance and great service but I was expecting better food 👎🏼
Thank you for taking the time to visit us and share your thoughts. We're so happy that you felt our restaurant was beautiful and offered great service, but we're dismayed to hear that you left disappointed in the food. We always appreciate honest feedback, as it helps us live up to our award-winning standards, so if you wouldn't mind sharing more detailed info about how you felt your food could have been improved, we're all ears!
Great spot! Great food, service and location. Highly recommend!
Thanks so much for your kind words and enthusiastic recommendation; we hope we get the chance to serve you again!
The cuisine is top notch. Highly recommend! Love the Ham and Pear Crisp with Tots!
Thank you for visiting and sharing your recommendation; we're thrilled you loved the Ham & Pear Crisp and the tots, and we hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
An interesting place to be "the most booked" in the area. Needs a little updating. The main dish (Walleye) was pretty boring, a sentiment corroborated by my local guest.
Credit where credit is due: The cheese curds were outstanding. The ham and pear grilled cheese sandwich was awesome according my guests. Also - our server was great.
Thank you for visiting and sharing what you felt we knocked out of the park, as well as where you felt we could improve! We actually just finished a DIY refresh of our underground restaurant, but if there are any specific details you felt needed a further update, please don't hesitate to let us know. We hope you'll consider giving us another shot in the future!
Great food! Great service! Great attention to detail. Haven't been here in a while and boy, have we been missing out. Bloody Marys and mimosas to start, poutine, then on to brunch! Great attention to dietary needs.
We always appreciate it when people who haven't visited us in a while make their way back, and we're thrilled to hear you had an awesome time. We hope we get the chance to serve you again soon!
love an employee owned restaurant!! staff was efficient, friendly and had fun with photo booth for birthday guest. And the food? Best in metro area.
Thanks so much for visiting and for including us in this birthday celebration! We hope we get the chance to serve you again soon, whether it be for another special occasion or just a regular meal out!
The service was fantastic! We were seated immediately and the server was very attentive. The food came quickly and was delicious!
Thank you for visiting and sharing your kind words about your food and service. We hope we get the chance to see you again in the future!
The staff was very kind and attentive. They had a great band you could listen to if you liked. Food came quickly and was fresh and very tasty
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your kind words about our food, staff, and live music. We're glad you enjoyed everything and hope to serve you again in the future!
We tried this place for brunch and loved it so much we came back for dinner. Wait staff is outstanding and food was excellent!
Oh we LOVE to hear it when people enjoy our restaurant so much they turn around and come right back. Thank you so much!
Oh those lemon ricotta flapjacks! So delicious and filling. Also sampled some of the walleye fish and chips that were delicious, though pricey at $22. The decaf coffee was so strong it was undrinkable, but guessing someone just made a bad pot. I will dream of those flapjacks until I return.
Thank you for your very kind words! Our Lemon-Ricotta Hotcakes have been a guest favorite since we first opened our doors back in 2002 (fun fact: our co-founder Cyn used to LITERALLY have dreams about them... so you're not the only one), and it's always a pleasure hearing they're still winning fans. We hope we get the chance to serve you again soon!
Good lunch visit with 6 people- something tasty for everyone. The little extra chef touches are what make this place so good - homemade pent butter, jam and pickled vegetables. Good news choices too,
Thanks so much for visiting and for sharing your kind words. Those little "chef touches" and a focus on from-scratch cooking have been our modus operandi for nearly 2 decades, and we love hearing when people appreciate it. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
We loved our brunch at Hell's Kitchen! The live music was a perfect sound level to enjoy while we ate Sunday at 10:45. Service was outstanding and the food was great too! Our kids age 10 &12 enjoyed the smores waffles and the country fried steak was a hit. The only bummer was the room was filled with Packers fans - Ha!
Thank you for visiting us and for sharing your kind words! We're thrilled that you loved the music and that you and your kids enjoyed the food and service. As for the Packers fans? Well... we welcome everyone into our restaurant, and even our staff is split when it comes to team loyalty, ha! We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Hell's kitchen never disappoints! Staff fully "vaxxed and masked" helps alleviate concerns and our server was very prompt and helpful. Food always so good! We will be back!
Thank you for your kind words about our food and service; we're so glad we could help make you feel safe and give you a great meal, and we can't wait to serve you again.
Sat for a long time before getting service. No mention of the QR menu, had to ask for a menu as our
phones wouldn't upload fast enough . Menu is sadly limited to mostly breakfast and cafe food. App was brought to the table without plates. Check took forever to come. Very confused about the 15% built in charge. Not a gratuity? Yes, it is. Were we supposed to add a bit more to make it 20%? Add nothing? Pay your staff competitive wages so we don't have to make up the difference. Not the Hell's Kitchen we used to know.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts. We try to make sure our QR menus and our service charge are explained up-front so as to avoid any confusion. We've always done our best to do pay our staff competitive wages, and 100% of the service charge is split equally (based on hours worked) amongst our entire staff to compensate for lost wages during the pandemic. It is not a gratuity, but some people choose to leave a tip alongside it. We hope this helps clarify!
I love to come for brunch in the winter. You guys have the best food and drink specials.
Thank you so much! We're glad that Hell can be a nice warm place for people to enjoy a winter brunch, and we hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future.
High quality food, great ombiance and live jazz music, friendly and attentive staff, 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your kind words; we're thrilled you had a great brunch with us and enjoyed the food, service, and music, and we hope to see you again.
The food is great. The lemon ricota pancakes was amazing. Everything was good up until we got the bill and we noticed a 15% service charge was added to our bill for front and back employees. This service charge was not considered the tip for our server. This did not sit well with us. We should have known ahead of time that we would be imposed this charge. We shouldn't have to be required to pay this sort of service fee for just 2 people dining. The tip for our server is all we should be required to give.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts. 100% of the service charge is split equally (based on hours worked) amongst our entire staff to compensate for lost wages during the pandemic. Transparency is hugely important to us, which is why we mention this service charge clearly at the top of every one of our menus (physical and digital) as well as on the front page of our website so that it doesn't come as a surprise to anybody when they receive their bill. We hope this makes sense!
Had a great birthday dinner with a friend and my husband. The servers were super accommodating and friendly, the food and drinks tasted wonderful, and they even gave us a token for the photo booth. I had lots of fun and would definitely recommend Hell's Kitchen.
Thank you for your kind words and recommendation! We're so happy we could be a part of your birthday celebration, and we hope you'll consider us for future special occasions, or even regular nights out!
Amazing food and great service!
Thank you! We're thrilled you chose to visit us, and of course happy to hear you had amazing food and service. We hope you'll consider returning in the future!
Great food and servic. Very pleased with the whole experience
Thank you for visiting and sharing your very kind words; we hope we get the chance to serve you again!
Hell's Kitchen is a great space with two full bars and lots of tables. Delicious walleye, tater tots, wraps, salad, and burgers. One of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis.
Thank you for your kind words and continued support of our restaurant. With so many wonderful places to eat in Minneapolis, we're so happy that you consider us one of your favorites, and we hope we can continue serving you great food in the future.
Great place for dinner, breakfast, or lunch with a good amount of options!!
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your kind words; we're so happy you enjoy our options for every meal and we can't wait to serve you again.
Staff was friendly and attentive without being pushy. Was not rushed to finish our bottle of wine and able to sit and enjoy ourselves at the table for an hour and a half while we waited for our concert to begin seating at the next stop in our date night.
Thank you so much for making us a part of your date night; we're thrilled that our restaurant gave you the opportunity to relax and enjoy yourselves before your concern. We hope you'll consider joining us again in the future!
The food was amazing, as was the service. The bill was quite a shock however!
Thank you for visiting; we're glad you had great food and amazing service. As for the bill, we're always striving to provide damn good food for a fair price, and we always take guest feedback into account when setting menu prices. If you feel like sharing more details, we encourage you to do so, and hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Everything was great.
However I was charged for the reservation in which was not refunded to me!!!
$30.39. Should have been refunded!!!
Thank you for visiting; we're glad you had a great meal! Do you mind emailing me directly about the reservation charge (including details such as the name/date/time on the reservation)? It sounds like there may have been some sort of mistake, and if there was, we'd of course like to rectify that as quickly and painlessly as possible. I can be contacted directly at NathanGerdes@HellsKitchenInc.c om.
