"Rather than rave on, let us just say if you're in Minnesota and want to wow your tastebuds, go to Hell's Kitchen. It is inspired and inspiring." (Jane & Michael Stern, NPR)

Three soft flour tortillas with Cajun-seasoned walleye, housemade salsa, shredded purple cabbage, and black beans. The Cajun seasoning really does have a kick, so if you're not into spicy, just ask us to leave the heat off.
This isn't a standard deli-sliced French dip sandwich. At Hell's Kitchen, we slow-roast a prime rib for hours until it's so tender, it falls apart with a fork. We'll serve yours piled with mounds of thin slices on a grilled ciabatta bun with plenty of roasted garlic au jus for dipping

It is 6/1. My reservation for 5/29 did not happen. Couple things i would like to share for the history books. Hell’s Kitchen was not open on 5/29 for my party of 7. We were in a freaking pandemic. They are responsible and thoughtful HUMANS who continue to wait for the ALL CLEAR that we all are so pained to hear.
But on top of that, 5/29 was a night of continued violence and mayhem in the wake of yet another black man. George Floyd died at the hands of a poisoned mind and when the good people of minneapolis showed up to protest, a whole different slate of poisoned minds showed up to sow fear and destruction.
If we weren’t all in a corner 2 months ago, these clowns tried to push us in that corner a little tighter. But we won’t go. We’re cleaning up, we’re sharing food and clithing and hope. And a smile for anyone who’ll take it. And i am writing a review to say i freaking love Hell’s Kitchen and Angel Food and the food trucks and Birch and D’Amico and Nong’s and Theresa’s and PAMP and all our friends who are just trying to hold it together a little bit longer.
Please. Hold it together a little bit longer. We need you as much as you need us. It’s a message to the whole twin cities.
Hang on, hang on, we can do this.
Kitchen closed 1.5 hours early due to there being few patrons. I wanted to place a to go order at 8:45 and was told the kitchen closed at 8:30. It would have been nice for the waiter to come to us to make sure we didn’t want anything else and explaining that the kitchen would be closing early.
Outstanding! Can’t wait to return after the Coronavirus settles. Love this place!
Our favorite breakfast place around! Great food, great drinks, great service!
We love this place. The food, as always, was amazing!
The French dip was phenomenal! Highly recommend!
Ham, cheese and pear sandwich excellent!!!!
We found hair in our food. The food was not great. We had heard such great things about this place. But we were not impressed. After finding hair in the food. It just ruined the rest of the visit.
Tasty food, great service, awesome atmosphere!
Great atmosphere and great food!! Will definitely be back again!
Went for birthday dinner, food as always was great, only drawback was noisier night and they were out of one dish but the replacement was still delish!
Thank you so much for joining us on your special day! We try our best to not run out of any dishes, but it does happen on rare occasions and for that we do apologize... but 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
Love this place, always lively. Service and food are top notch too.
Thank you for your kind words and compliments about our food, service, and atmosphere. We can't thank you enough for your continued support and hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Great experience! Had a 6pm reservation , got right in and seated at a nice high top table. Nice view of the live music!! Waiter took care of us. Food came right out and was very tasty! Definitely going back!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and to share your very kind words. You enjoying the music, the service, and of course your meal makes us so happy and we love hearing when we get everything just right. We can't wait to serve you again! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
We went there for our anniversary. It was during Lent and I gave up meat, I rolled the diced and attempted the "Impossible". WOW.
Advice, try the peanut butter and get you an ice cream; a wonderful small dessert at a great price and it is out of the world.
Thank you so much for choosing to include us in your anniversary celebration; we're thrilled that you had a great meal and were able to find a tasty option during Lent. The Impossible Burger really is awesome, and we’re so proud to have been the first restaurant in MN to carry it (and even happier that this great product has spread across the Twin Cities). I hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
The Mahnomin porridge is amazing. Be sure to order at least one for the table. The bison sausage is delicious as well and packs some nice heat, and the lemon ricotta pancakes are the stuff of legend.
The decor might be a bit kitschy, but it's fun. This is a lively, energetic place where the waitstaff is consistently outstanding and often comes to work in jammies (at least for the breakfast shift). They also host music on weekends.
Thank you so much for all your kind words; we appreciate you taking the time to not only support us, but to share your feelings about our restaurant and the dishes you love so much. I hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Fish and chips were slightly soggy and not seasoned. Ambiance was fine, and the band was good...but the food was the real disappointment.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us; I'm so sorry you left disappointed in your meal! We try our best to make sure every plate that leaves our kitchen is up to our standards, but on the off-chance that something less-than-stellar slips out, we appreciate candid feedback so we can turn around and make sure it doesn't happen again. If you have any more details to share, we're all ears. Other than that, I hope you'll consider giving us a second chance! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Came here for my birthday. Really cool vibe, Scott our server was great, and I enjoyed the food. Overall recommend 😁
Thank you for joining us (and happy birthday); we're so glad you had a great experience. Scott is a wonderful server and we'll be sure to share your compliments with him. I hope you'll consider us for future celebrations! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
The food and drinks were great. Service was excellent. Drink and food prices were way too high. But we love the place!
Thanks so much for your kind words; we're thrilled that you love our food, our drinks, and our service! As for the prices, we do our best to price our menu accordingly to cover our costs while still offering a fair value, but we're always open to specific feedback from guests and use it whenever we adjust our menus. I hope we get the chance to serve you again! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
our waiter was fantastic. very polite and energetic! food was above average and the feeling of being in down below was spot on.
I’m so glad you enjoyed your experience here at Hell’s Kitchen, and thank you for choosing to visit us! From our food and drinks to our service and our ambiance, everything we do is done to ensure that anyone who comes into our restaurant has a blast. I hope you’ll consider coming again next time you’re in the area! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Great service and really good food! Wish we were in Minneapolis longer so we could try more food!
Thank you so much for visiting while you were in town! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your time with us and we hope to see you again next time you're in the area! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
The bloody mary’s are impossible to beat and the huevos rancheros are the best in the cities.
Thank you for visiting and thank you for the compliments! We built our success on a great breakfast and brunch (including our Bloody Marys and our Huevos Rancheros), and it makes our day to hear that we’re living up to our reputation. I hope you’ll consider coming again next time you’re in the area! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Way too kitschy decor, food not good and overpriced for what it is and service only ok. Will not return. Trying too hard.
Thank you for visiting us and for sharing your thoughts. We know our style isn't for everyone, although we do sincerely appreciate you giving us a shot. If you have any specific details about how the food, service, or prices could have been better, we truly do value honest and candid feedback as it only helps us improve and live up to the reputation we've built over the years. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Waiter brought me prime rib instead of ribeye. He comped our drinks, a beer and a soda. The food was good.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your experience; I'm sorry for the mix-up with the order, but I'm also happy to hear that your server worked hard to make things right and that you ended up with an enjoyable meal. I hope you'll consider returning next time you're in the area! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
We had never been here before, but we were absolutely astonished by the atmosphere, the reasonable prices, and the fantastic quality of food. 10/10 would definitely go back.
Thank you so much for such very kind words, and for taking the leap and trying us out for the first time! We're thrilled that you had such a great time and we can't wait to serve you again. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
We enjoyed experiencing the mimosa bar but really look forward to trying the bloody Mary bar next time. I'm not a fan of blood Mary's but it's a whole meal to build in that line!!
Thank you so much for coming in and for trying out the Mimosa Bar; we can't wait to see you again and hear what you think about the Bloody Mary! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Fun place to eat Service was very good especially having a 2-year old ! Everyone left happy!
Thank you so much for visiting; we're thrilled that your party (including your young one) were able to have a great meal with nice service and leave happy. I hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Always a fun place to eat and great for bringing out of town friends to, especially with the “MN Icon” note on certain menu items!
Thank you so much for your kind words, and especially for your support and for showing us off to your friends. The people who help spread the "gospel of Hell" mean so much to us, and we're so happy that we can be the type of place that makes for a fun destination. I hope we get to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
Delicious food and good service! My husbands favorite spot in Minneapolis.
Thank you so much to you and your husband for your kind words and continued support; we hope we get the chance to serve you again soon! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
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!
Thank you for your kind words and for choosing to visit us for our weekend brunch. We're so happy to learn that you had great service, great food, and great drinks, and we can't wait to see you again soon. -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
We loved this place! Everything was delicious and very unique things on the menu!
Thank you so much for visiting and for sharing your very kind words; we're thrilled to know that you loved your experience and had a unique and tasty meal. I hope you'll consider returning in the future! -Nate Gerdes Hell's Kitchen
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
