All were pleased with their food. I ordered the Hellburger, and realized once I was done and had left, I didn't notice any heat. I had the lettuce, tomato, and onion added. Maybe next time I will skip all that. Maybe that hid the hotness. It was a good burger, it just didn't burn.

Awesome food as usual. His is always a staple stop for brunch when we have company in town. The Bloody Mary bar on the weekends is a must! Gotta try the walleye hash, lemon ricotta pancakes, sausage bread, and the porridge!

I asked our server to provide a carmel roll with candle to help celebrate our anniversary. This was very last minute. She handled the surprise wonderfully and when we received our check, she informed us that the roll was on the house. That's how to get your guests back! Thanks so much.

As always at Hell's Kitchen, had a great meal and a good time. My Cosmo was perfect, and 8-oz. prime rib perfectly cooked. Hubby enjoyed the pork and poached pear sandwich, and the lemon ricotta cheesecake is terrific. Great atmosphere, attentive service, fun atmosphere. Very highly recommended - if in Minneapolis for a visit, it's a must-see.

WOW! the impossible burger is outstanding! I haven't eaten meat in 33 years but this sure tasted like what I remember. But in a good way. My mom who was with me also had one and she eats burgers regularly. She said it was delicious as well. I definitely cannot wait to go back and get another!

I was here for a business lunch, and the server did a great job of checking in unobtrusively, and really went with the flow when we took 30 minutes to get around to ordering. He really did a great job.

Interesting location downstairs. There was an elevator but it took us a while to find it. The ambience was a little dark the service was very good. My fish tacos were OK I would’ve preferred the fish a little more crispy. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. The Ruben was very good and the tater tot‘s were exceptional. Overall it was a good experience.

We found Hell's Kithen while browsing for local fun restaurant and the name jumped up at us. We were looking for something different and fun for our trip and we definitely found it! The atmosphere, while loud, was exciting and fun! Every room was decorated differently and the Bloody Mary bar was a blast! The food was delicious to boot!

Always enjoy going to Hell's Kitchen, especially for music. Menu has changed a bit since my last visit. Sadly, No more bison burger, but the hell burger is really spicy and delicious. have always ordered cole slaw...one of the few places I order coleslaw because it was creamy and had a nice bite to it , tasted home made. Was not offered on the menu as a side, but I asked and server said they still had cole slaw. This time, it tasted like generic , commercial coleslaw.

I have dined with a date here many times. Enjoy the early hour weekend live music. The bar is lively, thus enjoyable. The staff is outstanding; customers are well served. The ramp parking above the bar is a slick deal. Just get out of the car and take the elevator to Hells Kitchen. Open Table reservations are great.

I ordered the pesto, It arrived with the rest of my group's meal but was lukewarm at best. The dish tasted fine, but seemed light on the amount of pesto. After about 3 minutes my dish was cold and unsatisfying to eat.

One other thing to note, my favorite thing about Hell's Kitchen was their homemade ketchup. They've since stopped making it and now use store bought.

The people at the desk that took my reservation when I got there were really nice. Smiles and polite. We got seated and and it all kind of fell apart from there. Drinks were quick, but time took forever to get our order in. My ribs were completely different then what I had last month when I was there. My friends prime rib was a bit rarer than she liked. The lemonade I think was just lemon juice and water. That was a real letdown. I really liked the lemonade I had last time I was there. It was fizzy and we'll balanced. Overall, it was ok. I will be back to see if it was just an off night or if it's time to move onto another place.

I have enjoyed Hells Kitchen for a long time and I saw that they added the #impossibleburger to the menu and went as soon as possible. It was delicious 😋. The only issue we had was the waiter didn’t get the order correct, that was disappointing but the Impossible Burger 🍔 was fantastic.

Went as they touted launch of the vegan Impossible burger only to find out they didn't offer a vegan bun. Also staff had to check on just about every part of the meal to accommodate. It was first night of option but poorly executed.

Made a reservation for Sunday Brunch on New Year's Day. We couldn't make a reservation through the app until later than we really wanted, but it was worth the wait! Had the basil lemonade mimosas, a 'breakfast' shot, and split a few entrees. The Lemon Riccotta pancakes were delicious! I was tempted to try the elaborate Bloody Mary bar, but my brunch companion warned me that if i did that I probably wouldn't be able to eat my meal!

A group of us went for Sunday brunch and the Jacked Up Bloody Mary bar. Everything was fabulous! I’ve never had a dish i didn’t like at HK. I’m grateful i had a reservation in advance because they were so booked they were turning away walk-ins. The back room wasn’t as loud as the front room where they had live music.

Love this place for brunch. Cool and unique. Really love the Bloody Mary bar where you can jack up your Bloody Mary to an Uber Mary! Usually things are close to perfection there, but this time the timing of the food was so off and resulted in a cold breakfast--which is not good. Felt like they were rushing us out since it was holiday and a rush . Been there a few times a year when we come to the Cities over several years and this is the first time I have been a bit disappointed--thinking it was a fluke....hoping.
