The service was wonderful! The server was able to make some recommendations for us since we hadn't been there before. The bloody mary and the mimosa bar's were pretty cool with very good options. We were next to a rather large party, which was noisy, but that wasn't their fault! It was a great experience and I can't wait to go back to try more menu items!
We loved this place! Everything was delicious and very unique things on the menu!
Love the ambiance of Hell’s Kitchen! It’s a great place to enjoy with family, kids, grandparents or just your cool friends.
Only disappointment is there lack of champagne selection being such a huge brunch destination I’d like more options than Wycliffe or Prosecco for delightful bubbles
Thank you so much for your kind words about our restaurant; we're so happy to hear that we're a comfortable, fun place for you to hang out with so many different people. We also appreciate your constructive feedback about our bubbly selection; I'll be sure to share that with our bar manager so they can take it into account next time we update our bar menu. We can't wait to serve you again! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Once again, a fantastic experience. And they graciously accommodated our last minute +1 party change. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your kind words and for coming back into our restaurant! We're so thrilled that we could accommodate your group and that everyone had a fantastic time; we hope to see you again soon. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
no thanks. I don't do open ended questions. Not happy that you're requiring me to answer this. Not nice.
Thank you for visiting us! Neither us nor Opentable requires anybody to answer open-ended questions... we have plenty of people either just leave a star rating or not leave any rating at all. Having said that, we do always encourage feedback about our restaurant, and if you do have any to share, we're open to hearing it! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Food is always great...service was a little rough...each person from the restaurant we interacted with seemed very edgy
Thank you for supporting us and thank you for your feedback! We're happy you think our food is great, but we'd love to hear a bit more detail and clarification on what you mean when you say our service staff are "rough" and "edgy." If there's anything that could be improved on the service side of things, we want to know so we can make those changes! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Only negative was kitchen goofed and sent out fries that turned out to be not gluten free to my Friend with celiac disease☹️
Thank you for visiting and for sharing your experience. We're so sorry about that kitchen goof; our team is normally incredibly careful about GF preparation and respecting of Celiac diners (it's the whole reason we have a dedicated GF fryer!), and I promise that this mistake is not indicative of our normal levels of care and attention. Beyond that, we're glad you had a great time and hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Pretty pleased all around. Had reservations and was seated right away. Was there early morning for brunch. Would go back again.
Thank you for coming in and for sharing your kind words; we're thrilled you had a great early brunch and we can't wait to see you again. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Fun place, first time for brunch. We got there just ahead of the crowd. Our server, Jordan, was a pro in all waya, outstanding. Try the peanut butter! Sooo good!
Thank you for visiting and for the incredibly kind words about our peanut butter and about our staff! We'll be sure to share your compliments with Jordan, and we hope we get the chance to serve you again soon. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
I made reservations for my daughters birthday. She loved it. Great atmosphere, food, and service. Will definitely come back next time I’m in town.
Thank you so much for including us as part of your daughter's birthday celebration; we're so glad she loved it and we can't wait to serve you two again! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
The service was amazing! Super friendly - from the host, to our waiter who offered info on the menu including the non-alcoholic cocktails, to the person who noticed I was about to scoop the yummy tartar sauce into my to-go box and swiftly offered me a small ramekin for it. Great experience!
Thank you so much for your compliments! I’m sure biased but I must agree with your comments about our staff; as an employee-owned business, our team has an even greater dedication to giving a unique, delicious experience to each and every guest that comes through our doors. I hope you’ll consider coming again next time you’re in the area! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Poor management, very disappointing. The Bloody Mary bar was half empty, the lady there apologized and directed us to tell the waitress and they will take care of us, when we told the waitress, she said that the manager did not approve it. We asked to talk to the manager, and we she came to us (10 minutes later), she was very rude about it, and didn’t want to charge us a price of a regular Bloody Mary and insisted on a full price... we were a returning customers- never again. We completely under that you may run out of things in the restaurant, what we don’t understand is: 1. How come you don’t update the staff? And most important- 2. How do you allow yourself to charge full price for half a serving??
Fun atmosphere and great food! I recommend the mimosa bar.
Thank you for your kind words; we're so happy that you enjoyed the food, the ambiance, and the mimosa bar. I hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
I would definitely recommend for breakfast! The ranchero is amazing! This last time, we decided to do lunch, my husband's cuban sandwich was very dry and I got the burger with cheese in the middle, I was actually surprised how small it was, I was thinking I would be taking half home, not! Because of that, over priced! Server was awesome!
Thank you for your support and your honest appraisal of your experiences, both about what you loved (our service, our breakfast) as well as what you felt could have been improved. We really do value candid feedback and use it to ensure that we're always living up to our reputation. If you have anything else you'd like to add, please don't hesitate to reach out, and I hope you'll consider returning in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Outstanding place and service we absolutely love going here when we make it to the cities! It’s a Sunday morning must! Reservations are recommended
Thank you for your kind words and continued support; we love knowing that we're your go-to for Sunday Brunch when you're in the cities, and we hope we can continue serving you well into the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
This is a must visit restaurant! Service, food and atmosphere are second to none. If you are visiting Minneapolis you should make this part of your trip! You will love it.
Thank you so much for your very kind words and your wonderful recommendation. We hope we get the chance to serve you again next time you're in our neck of the woods! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Our server was great but our meal took forever to come out to the point it ruined our experience.
Thank you for visiting and for sharing your feedback with us; I'm so sorry that your meal took so long to come out! We'll be up-front that this particular Saturday was record-shatteringly busy for us and even with the intense prepwork our staff does for our busy weekend services, we got a bit bogged down at times. Please accept our honest apologies and know that this is not our usual standard of service efficiency. I hope you'll consider giving us another shot! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Valentines weekend, with a private party in the bar but it was still fairly quiet and service fantastic.
Thank you so much for joining us this past weekend; we're thrilled to hear that you had fantastic service and I hope you'll consider returning in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Love the ambiance and excellent service, but where are the vegan options? Offering the Impossible burger is not enough.
Thank you for visiting and for your kind words about our ambiance and our service, but I'm sorry you felt there weren't enough vegan options. While it's true that we don't have a vast array of options for vegans, we do offer items other than the Impossible Burger that can be prepared vegan with minor omissions or substitutions. Beyond that, we're always looking for menu feedback so we can better serve our guests, and we'll take your request to heart. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Very cute place. The service was wonderful and the food was great too! Juicy Lucifer and tater tots were delicious. The cheese curds with the hot pepper jelly was amazing. We also enjoyed the Pecan Caramel roll for dessert, that is a show stopper.
Wish we lived closer.
Thank you so much for your kind words about our food, our service, and our restaurant in general. Even if you don't live nearby, we sincerely appreciate you choosing to visit us and we hope you'll consider returning next time you do find yourself in our neck of the woods. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen

My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day a day late and we whent for the Bloody Mary bar and a breakfast item. I have never experienced anything but the best at Hells Kitchen. We were sat right in front of the stage and the band was amazing, we didn’t have to scream or even at an elevated level. I will always enjoy going.
Thank you so much for your continued support, and for including our brunch as part of your Valentine's celebration. We love helping couples celebrate even outside of the day itself, and we're thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful time. I hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
We went for the Bloody Mary bar. Was fun, maybe a touch overpriced, but fun! I read many reviews about the lemon ricotta pancakes, so we had to try them. At $14.95 for just three pancakes, a bit steep for pricing and they were just ok. They didn’t come with anything either so it was just these for breakfast.
Service was great. Music was fine.
Thank you so much for visiting and for sharing your experience. We're thrilled that you had a fun time overall, but we also appreciate you taking the time to share what you thought was great as well as where you saw room for improvement. Honest feedback is how we make sure we're always at the top of our game, and it's a huge help for us. I hope you'll consider returning again in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Wonderful as usual
Thank you for your continued support; we hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
My only negative is I wish this was located in Chicago! Hostess awesome! Waitress amazing! Food was so good I wish I ate here every meal! Great decor, great service, awesome food. Great vibe here. What an amazing place! Great job!
Wow, what incredible compliments! We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to visit us and to share your experience, and I'll be sure to pass these wonderfully kind words on to our entire staff, including your server. I hope we get the chance to serve you again next time you're in Minneapolis! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Huevos Rancheros were AMAZING!! Jerk chicken wings, walleye Tacos!! We love food and it was such a good idea to come here for our 1st time
Thank you so much for your kind words, and for giving us a try in the first place! We're thrilled that you were able to finally make it in and see what we're all about, and even happier that you left having loved the food. I hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
1st time there , we were super excited but at the end of the night weren’t really impressed. The atmosphere was pretty cool, waiter was nice. The food was maybe a 2 out of 5. It looked amazing but was definitely missing some flavor. For dessert we had ice cream and the brownie heart. Ice cream with the red sauce was pretty damn delicious but the brownie was too dry. The appetizers were our favorite. We may go back and give it a 2nd chance though.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us and to share your feelings, both about what was great and about what we could do better! We try our best to meet and exceed our customer's expectations and comments like this help us continue to strive to be exceptional. We do sincerely appreciate your consideration of coming back a second time, and we hope we get another chance to prove ourselves to you! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
It was awesome my fiancé also really loved it, very different but a great place for a date night out of the norm
Thanks to both you and your fiancé for visiting us; we do like to think of ourselves as a bit out of the ordinary, and we're so glad the two of you had a nice Valentine's date with us. I hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Not the best service and the food was just okay. I would definitely go agin for the ambiance but it would not be my first choice. I loved the live music!
Thanks for taking the time to visit us and give us your rating. I hope your experience was good on the whole, but we try our best to be exceptional, and we never want to settle for average. If there are any ways we can improve I'd love to hear more detail - we sincerely appreciate customer feedback and use it to directly improve our guests' experience. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Great restaurant! Wonderful food and unique ambiance that you can't get other places. Drinks are also amazing and unique. I always request to be seated in the live music area because the bands they have are always great.
Thanks so much for your kind words and for your continued support. We're so glad you love our food, drinks, ambiance, and live music, and we can't wait to serve you again. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Sound quality of the music is excellent. Food is incredible. I applaud the staff for accommodating last minute reservations on Valentine's Day.
We're so glad you were able to get in for a Valentine's celebration! We're usually pretty full on that evening, but our staff always does their best to accommodate people if and when space is available. Thank you for your kind words and we hope we get the chance to serve you again! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Excellent food and service on Valentine's evening! We were astonished at how quickly our dinner came out, especially since it was a busy night. Prime rib and ribeye steak were made to order and very flavorful. The kitchen seemed well staffed and tables were turning comfortably. We never felt rushed or crowded. The peanut butter ice cream was delicious as a small dessert. We were very pleased with everything about our dining experience!
Thank you so much for choosing us as part of your Valentine's celebration. Our staff has a lot of experience making Valentine's Day special and they know how to truly give an unforgettable dinner on such a special occasion. I hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
