I would give them a 2nd chance. I ordered a Specialty item (Lemon Ricotta Pancakes) and they weren't that good (just my opinion), but as I looked around the dining room, every other dish looked fantastic. I made reservation for 1145am. The hostess and I were a bit surprised to find another couple enjoying my RESERVED table. The hostess was polite, asked them did they have THIS particular table reserved and then asked them to move on. I should have taken that as an omen. My waiter arrived and I ordered coffee and the pancakes. The coffee arrived (horrible) and shortly thereafter so did the pancakes. I won't dwell on it. I didn't like them, so I didn't eat them. I ate my dry, overcooked bacon, listened to live music (nice duo), Marco Polo'd my wife and when the waiter checked on me, told him I didn't like the meal and to please bring me my check. The manager came over, apologized, offered to comp the pancakes, which was a very nice gesture, thank you, so I will visit again and order something totally different. Overall, this is a highly sought after dining spot. Definitely check it out when in town

I don't live very near to Hell's Kitchen, and you have to pay to park in a ramp or find on street parking, metered, as it is in downtown Mpls. It is a nearly half hour drive for me when there is no traffic. But, despite all this, Hell's Kitchen is my favorite hands' down place for brunch. The food is always excellent, and the service is, too. I have to be disappointed. The huevos rancheros is out of this world good. The flavors just mesh perfectly, so amazingly good. I never finish it, but it reheats fine. The lemon ricotta pancakes are also very good as is the bison sausage and the classic eggs benny.

Hell's Kitchen has been our favorite brunch spot for close to 10 years. I love everything I have had, but the best things on the brunch menu IMO are the Wild Rice Porridge, Lemon Riccata Pancakes, the Walleye Hash, and anything that has their homemade peanut butter on it.

Loved the live music and great service. Despite running late, they were very friendly both on the phone and once we arrived. Not only did they grant my request to be seated in the room with live music, they gave me a perfect table to watch it from. Bloody Mary bar was impressive with fun choices like chicken wings and shrimp. Had not heard of the musician prior to dining there, but really enjoyed the music, and I never felt rushed by the waitress, felt very comfortable and relaxed. Food was good, bacon was cooked perfectly, berries were delicious. Only drawback was it felt a little expensive (I thought the lemon ricotta pancakes tasted great, but still feel $15 is steep for 3 pancakes and some berries on top), but I knew this ahead of time. Overall I had a great experience and would definitely come back if I am ever in the area again!!

Food is phenomenal...especially the lemon ricotta pancakes, and service was pretty good as well. My only complaint would be the bloody Mary bar. Loved the bloody mix itself, but the pics on their website are misleading as they show crab legs and mini sandwiches as garnishes, which there were neither. What they did have was ok...the bbq chicken wing was really good, but I guess I was just expecting more. Despite the small disappointment we will definitely be back!

I would recommend for breakfast but was not impressed with their dinner menu. My son got the fish and chips - breading was soggy, fish was not seasoned.
