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.

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,

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!

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.

Hell's Kitchen Minneapolis
Responded 7 days ago

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!

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!

They’ve redecorated and to me it now feels the the waiting room for hell. Whitewashed the brick walls, put in some plastic, white, acrylic light fixtures, took out the curtains and all dark ambiance. I tried the new breakfast burrito on the menu. The hash browns in it were underdone and soft, the “fajita veggies” were sparse diced bell peppers. Generally tasteless. I told my server and she was wonderful. Took it back and brought me their wonderful Huevos Rancheros which were up to the quality I expected. My brunch companion had the Walleye Hash. It was also amazing. We loved this place before and always went when I had guests in town or for something extra fun. Not sure when/if I’ll be back, but it definitely won’t be my go-to any more.

Thank you for your support and your candid, honest feedback! While most people have told us they like our recent space refresh, we understand it may not be to everyone's tastes and we never mind hearing differing opinions. It sounds like (other than the Breakfast Burrito issue) you still enjoyed our food and our service, and we hope you'll consider returning in the future even in this new, brighter version of Hell.

Thank you for your kind words; we're glad you enjoyed your meal! Just to clarify, our Bloody Mary/Mimosa Bar is only missing temporarily--we don't feel comfortable putting so many people in such a tight hallway right now, but once we feel the covid numbers make it safe to do so, we'll absolutely be reopening the bar so people can make the Bloodys and Mimosas of their dreams once again!
