Excellent service and very engaging. Food was excellent and very nice ambiance. Most of us had steaks but a couple had fish and said it was excellent. The Mushroom Risotto was very good too.

My husband I visited Kinzie Chophouse on Father's Day. It was a disappointing experience. The loud, contemporary, gym type music was annoying and obnoxious. It cheapened the entire experience. The inside of the restaurant is less than elegant. It is definitely nothing special. Entering and...More
