The food and service is unparalleled, we were seated exactly at my reservation time, the server was knowledgeable and quick with suggestions but I opted for my standby sausage bread and homemade peanut butter as an appetizer and Lemon Ricotta hot cakes as the main course accompanied by the masterpiece Bloody Mary served with a dill pickle slice and sausage link stirrer and a lager sidecar. The cinnamon roll, Eggs Benedict and the French Toast should not be overlooked. Don’t forget to bring a jar of peanut butter home.

Mediocre place. Went there for dinner but they only have 4 items on the menu for dinner unless you want a burger or waffle. Not the place to go for a special occasion. Had an appetizer of cheese curds which were good. Overall I would go somewhere else which we did. Went to the steakhouse across the street. Way better!! They require a credit card to make a reservation which was stupid IMO as there was only a couple others there. Not worth it. Go elsewhere.

Thank you for visiting, although we're dismayed that you didn't stay for your whole meal! While it's true that we're not looking to offer a high-end steakhouse experience (we made our name on the back of our breakfast and brunch), we're thankful that we do have many guests who return to us for their special occasion dinners. We're happy that you found a dinner that worked for your special occasion, even if it wasn't with us, and we hope you'll give us another shot during our famous brunch!

We sat right beside the door to the kitchen, so that was pretty annoying. We made a reservation the day before going and when we got there, they said they couldn’t find our reservation. They said they found it after we had already eaten and told us they would’ve put us at a better table if they knew it was our anniversary, which we stated on our reservation. The food was okay but wasn’t as good as we imagined.

We went for brunch and had the Bloody Mary, Bison Waffle and Country Friend Steak Waffle. The bloodies were awesome. The bison waffle was ok but over priced. Ultimately it didn’t seem like there was much bison. The Country Fried Steak had an unappetizing texture and was disappointing. Also, they included a 15% service charge that they said was not the tip and was not stated until after the meal, on the bill. That seems misleading and I would have preferred they were upfront with that.

Hell's Kitchen Minneapolis
Responded on September 6, 2021

Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts, both about what you enjoyed as well as what you felt could have been improved. Our waffles are still relatively new menu items and honest feedback helps us make sure that every single one comes out just right. As for the service charge, we do our best to inform diners of the service charge up-front, which is why it's clearly labeled on our website, our online ordering platforms, our online menus, and our physical menus.

Overall it wasn’t a terrible experience considering that they’re short staffed due to COVID. We ordered the Huevos Rancheros which were delicious, however, I gave the food a 3/5 because my mom ordered the Caesar salad and it was terrible. There was WAY too much anchovy paste in the dressing that it tasted like old fish. She couldn’t even get through it.

Hell's Kitchen is a festive place to dine and the wait staff are excellent. The food is well prepared and tasty. Beware the hellish pictures in the bathrooms which can be a bit unsettling, but maybe it was because it was also a night with a big thunderstorm going on outide.
