Lemon Ricotta Waffle
Our famous Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes, but a Waffle. Crisp, fluffy, light and delicious. Comes with mixed berries and powdered sugar.
Lemon Ricotta isn't just for hotcakes anymore! All the flavors of our signature breakfast dish, in a perfectly creamy cheesecake.
Great food! Great service! Great attention to detail. Haven't been here in a while and boy, have we been missing out. Bloody Marys and mimosas to start, poutine, then on to brunch! Great attention to dietary needs.
love an employee owned restaurant!! staff was efficient, friendly and had fun with photo booth for birthday guest. And the food? Best in metro area.
The service was fantastic! We were seated immediately and the server was very attentive. The food came quickly and was delicious!
Thank you for visiting and sharing your kind words about your food and service. We hope we get the chance to see you again in the future!
The staff was very kind and attentive. They had a great band you could listen to if you liked. Food came quickly and was fresh and very tasty
We tried this place for brunch and loved it so much we came back for dinner. Wait staff is outstanding and food was excellent!
Oh we LOVE to hear it when people enjoy our restaurant so much they turn around and come right back. Thank you so much!
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.
Thank you for your very kind words! Our Lemon-Ricotta Hotcakes have been a guest favorite since we first opened our doors back in 2002 (fun fact: our co-founder Cyn used to LITERALLY have dreams about them... so you're not the only one), and it's always a pleasure hearing they're still winning fans. We hope we get the chance to serve you again soon!
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,
Thanks so much for visiting and for sharing your kind words. Those little "chef touches" and a focus on from-scratch cooking have been our modus operandi for nearly 2 decades, and we love hearing when people appreciate it. We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
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!
Thank you for visiting us and for sharing your kind words! We're thrilled that you loved the music and that you and your kids enjoyed the food and service. As for the Packers fans? Well... we welcome everyone into our restaurant, and even our staff is split when it comes to team loyalty, ha! We hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Hell's kitchen never disappoints! Staff fully "vaxxed and masked" helps alleviate concerns and our server was very prompt and helpful. Food always so good! We will be back!
Thank you for your kind words about our food and service; we're so glad we could help make you feel safe and give you a great meal, and we can't wait to serve you again.
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.
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!
I love to come for brunch in the winter. You guys have the best food and drink specials.
Thank you so much! We're glad that Hell can be a nice warm place for people to enjoy a winter brunch, and we hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future.
High quality food, great ombiance and live jazz music, friendly and attentive staff, 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your kind words; we're thrilled you had a great brunch with us and enjoyed the food, service, and music, and we hope to see you again.
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!
Had a great birthday dinner with a friend and my husband. The servers were super accommodating and friendly, the food and drinks tasted wonderful, and they even gave us a token for the photo booth. I had lots of fun and would definitely recommend Hell's Kitchen.
Thank you for your kind words and recommendation! We're so happy we could be a part of your birthday celebration, and we hope you'll consider us for future special occasions, or even regular nights out!
Amazing food and great service!
Thank you! We're thrilled you chose to visit us, and of course happy to hear you had amazing food and service. We hope you'll consider returning in the future!
Great food and servic. Very pleased with the whole experience
Thank you for visiting and sharing your very kind words; we hope we get the chance to serve you again!
Hell's Kitchen is a great space with two full bars and lots of tables. Delicious walleye, tater tots, wraps, salad, and burgers. One of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis.
Thank you for your kind words and continued support of our restaurant. With so many wonderful places to eat in Minneapolis, we're so happy that you consider us one of your favorites, and we hope we can continue serving you great food in the future.
Great place for dinner, breakfast, or lunch with a good amount of options!!
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your kind words; we're so happy you enjoy our options for every meal and we can't wait to serve you again.
Staff was friendly and attentive without being pushy. Was not rushed to finish our bottle of wine and able to sit and enjoy ourselves at the table for an hour and a half while we waited for our concert to begin seating at the next stop in our date night.
Thank you so much for making us a part of your date night; we're thrilled that our restaurant gave you the opportunity to relax and enjoy yourselves before your concern. We hope you'll consider joining us again in the future!
The food was amazing, as was the service. The bill was quite a shock however!
Thank you for visiting; we're glad you had great food and amazing service. As for the bill, we're always striving to provide damn good food for a fair price, and we always take guest feedback into account when setting menu prices. If you feel like sharing more details, we encourage you to do so, and hope we get the chance to serve you again in the future!
Everything was great.
However I was charged for the reservation in which was not refunded to me!!!
$30.39. Should have been refunded!!!
Thank you for visiting; we're glad you had a great meal! Do you mind emailing me directly about the reservation charge (including details such as the name/date/time on the reservation)? It sounds like there may have been some sort of mistake, and if there was, we'd of course like to rectify that as quickly and painlessly as possible. I can be contacted directly at NathanGerdes@HellsKitchenInc.c om.
Friendly staff, great decor, great grill food, whether breakfast or burgers. Bison meat option for the win.
Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your kind words, especially about our bison--we've had it on our menu since 2001, well before "non-traditional" and game meats became trendy, and we have no intention of ever getting rid of this beautiful, lean option. We hope to see you again soon!
Fun atmosphere with really food! The staff were super attentive and friendly. Would go again.
Thank you for visiting and sharing your kind words; we're thrilled you had a fun time and we can't wait to serve you again!
We have visited in the past and service has always been on point this time around our order got messed up asked for things they were forgotten and the energy was just not there anymore.
Thank you for your honest feedback and your past support. We're glad we've impressed you in the past, although we're dismayed to hear that we missed the mark this time. We pride ourselves in great service with great energy and "getting things right the first time," and we hope you'll consider giving us another shot in the future to show that your recent experience was a one-off issue and not indicative of how we currently run our restaurant.
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.
Disappointed the Bloody Mary bar was gone but everything else was excellent. Our server was very friendly, prompt and our food came quickly.
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!
Excellent! Great food and service!
Thank you! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the food and the service, and we can't wait to serve you again.
My husband and I enjoyed our experience here very much! We can't wait to go back one day. Everything and everyone was awesome!
Thanks so much to you and your husband for visiting, and for sharing your kind words. We can't wait to see you again too, whenever that may be!
The good is fantastic! I wish they would just raise the prices instead of adding 15% to the bill. It just meant we tipped less.
The best- but bring back deviled eggs
Thank you for your kind words and your suggestion. Our deviled egg recipe really has been a guest favorite over the years and--while we can't make any promises--as we continue to move forward after a difficult two years, we hope we can bring back more dishes onto our menu.
