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??

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 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

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.

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.

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.

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!

I ordered the Linguine and I don't eat much but when they brought me back the plate it wasn't even enough to feed my 3 year old. We also ordered the BBQ nachos and there was literally a teaspoon full of meat that was on the plate (they hid it under the cheese). Lastly my husband ordered the chicken and that was burnt we had to pill off the crust and ask for barbecue sauce to take off some of the burnt flavor, we ate it because we were hungry and had a show to catch so we didn't have enough time to leave and find some where else and wait for it to be prepared.
I was so disappointed in the food at Hell Kitchen I literally felt like it was Hell in that kitchen. I will never go back there and I do not recommend anyone to go there. Despite the food our waiter was nice that was the only good experience that we had.
