Kinmont is a gem! The food is always amazing, the burger is the best I have ever tasted, yes it's better than Au Cheval, the fish is always fresh, the oysters are always delicious! Their wine menu is awesome and the people that work there are the BEST! Greg, the manager, is magic, he always makes us feel welcome, and we get a 5 star treatment every time we go there! Greg and his team, create a wonderful dining experience every time! An absolute must, hidden gem!

Branzino, Hush Puppies, and Scallops were great. Would recommend stressing severly if you have dietary restrictions, or allergies, as mine were over-looked. I was appalled when I noticed bacon in my dish after asking multiple times for NO bacon.

We made a last minute reservation here because it was close to where we lived and we were very impressed with our experience. The service and the food were fantastic and we would recommend this place to anyone. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere.

As always, Kinmont does not disappoint. The service, food, and drinks were great.
I tried their lobster roll for the first time and it was delish! It came with chips, which were also amazing! Kudos to Dennis and the team!
Food was great. Was craving oysters for my birthday and this place delivered. They had a large variety of oysters which was fantastic. Only problem I had was that they ran out of certain fish that were on the menu, but I guess that is expected when there is a certain quantity of fresh coming in each day. The Lobster Rolls could also have used a little more lobster meat. It was more heavy on the bread side, which was delicious by the way, but a little more lobster meat goes a long way. Service was great. Waiters were very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a few old fashion's that were delicious. Overall great experience.

We had visited Kinmont once in the past and we were very excited to come back. Superior service, our waitress was helpful and knowledgeable. The menu offered many options including kid friendly alternatives. Main dishes were well executed. However (and very sorry, there were flaws), French fries that were cold and soggy also made their way into the table. Definitely not the worst thing ever. We will certainly come back, get another evil doer ready.
The service was outstanding and our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable, food was delicious, and ambiance was great.
The only thing I could possibly include as negative from this experience was that one of our party complained of the chair being a bit uncomfortable. I will definitely be returning.
The shellfish and fish were superb. We got a Kinmont tower and it was outstanding. The whole Branzino was fabulous. The staff could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. The wine list is good not great, but they have very reasonable corkage. Overall we were very pleasantly surprised by this place.
Both my husband and I got food poisoning from here so I can't recommend it.
If we hadn't, I'd probably rate the food a 3.5, service was and ambience were very good.
Fish charcuterie was pretty good, I liked the trout spread, tuna was decent and the salmon wasn't very good.
Parker house rolls were decent but were room temp even though they come out in a cast iron pan.
Ordered white fish with a caper lemon beurre blanc sauce which was awful. Tasted like they poured a jar of capers over it and called it a day. Fish decently cooked but fishy.
Crab roll was good on nice warm bread.
Beignets were the highlight- warm and pillowy.

The drink special and quality of those drinks was great! $5 specialty cocktails on Thursdays, and they were quite tasty - my boyfriend and I tried 6 different ones (3 each) and I think we liked 5 of the 6. The crab hush puppy starter was actually really good. I was hesitant to order it but my boyfriend wanted it. They were well fried with a yummy toppings. For dinner I got the gnocchi and he got the crawfish. Both tasted great, but neither was enough food. We both left feeling a little hungry. We finished it off with key lime pie, which is my favorite dessert and it was delicious!
Dinner before the Show
Nice location, service was great and the food was exceptional. We all sort of went out on a limb with our fish selections, i.e. not what fish we normally pick, and everyone was pleased with their selection. The trout and the Lake Superior White fish were both outstanding.

Every time I go here, and I like their food, they are always out of something on the menu. The most recent visit--they were out of carrots; the time before they were out of one the fish dishes.
This visit, they screwed up two of our four entries. Although they eventually got it right and apologized, it took 15minutes to get the correct entries, so two of our diners were almost done with their meals by the time the other two correct entries were delivered. For out trouble, they should have offered us something at least like a free desert.
Kenmont fresh fish restaurant
Celebrated our 36th anniversary at Kenmont and enjoyed every minute. Our son recommended it to us and he wasn't wrong. Saturday night 7pm reservations, plenty of street parking right out front, blue jeans and a dark shirt for the staff, our "business casual" dress felt right in place. Our waitress was very friendly. My wife had the white fish catch of the day and I had the crab with gnocchi pasta. Both items were to die for. On top of that they comped us a dessert plate which include a slice of Key Lime pie. The best!
A distinct style, not for us
My husband and I are pescetarians, and we like to eat lowfat. So there weren't too many options for us here because they even put meat in some of the side dishes, such as pork in the collard greens. The trout I ordered came with a creamy risotto. The salmon my husband ordered came with cheese and an egg and some kind of Spanish onion, green pepper and tomato sauce. The only salad on the menu came with an onion cider vinaigrette, the onion flavor was overpowering. The prep style here seems a bit fussy (over prepped?) for our taste, a lot of the entrees and sides come with cheese or butter or sauce or onions. Just not our style. Service was very good, though :-)
Solid food and bar offerings
We went on a Saturday around 8 and at least three of the things we not available as they had sold out. With that said, we still really enjoyed our food -hush puppies were outstanding and the catch of the day was perfectly cooked. The cocktails were spot on and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. It was noisy though, as there was a private party in the back half of the restaurant.
Whatever you are thinking, do not waste your money and time. We waited 15 minutes for a seat, we saw several open tables on the way to our seating. Sat down, ordered the boquerones appetizer that was more of a bland bread spread than anything else. No spiciness or unique taste , just bland. I ordered the burger (NOTHING SPECIAL) and my date ordered the whitefish. It might have been 3 oz. small helping, no taste just fish. I know-, it’s whitefish. Dining out should include something different then what you get @ White Castle. Somehow the General Manager must have figured out our displeasure (we didn’t complain) he came over and attempted small talk. Don’t waste your time. The waiter was casual, and the decor was nice. But really they need to redo the menu and offer more than bland small portions.
Great fish average sides
My husband and I both ordered the white fish and were very happy with it. He found the filet to be pretty small but it was the right size for me. We also had the potatoes and the carrots. Both were good but not as great as the fish. I would want to go back for the fish but the sides would need to be a little better as the fish is not enough by itself. The service was slow but the waiter had the entire back room. I am not sure if they were understaffed or if that is normal. It clearly was not his fault as he had too much on his plate, but it did put a slight damper on the evening when we were sitting with empty drinks. The dessert sounded delicious, but I was full from the meal so did not get a chance to try. Would like to go back and try the burger as it looked appealing at the table next to me.
Too much fluff, not enough to back it up
We came here for my wife's birthday and let our server know this when we arrived. He said it was several other people's birthday as well that night. The drinks were very small, even the glassware, but the prices were the same if not higher than most other Chicago restaurants/bars. The listing for the restaurant hyped that they had a lobster tail and that it was included in the package we purchased. We had a 7:45 reservation and they were already out of the lobster and another side item. The appetizer, bisque, and both entrees we ordered were fine but were nothing great or that I would mention again to anyone. After dinner, as I mentioned it was my wife's birthday, we did not see a dessert we loved but the waiter did not bring or offer anything for her birthday. Although, we saw the "other birthday" sundays going out to other tables. This was just a very lack luster experience. Do not recommend.

I attended the Valentine's Day event. The prix fixe meal was beyond amazing, and also was at a great price! This was my introduction to Kinmont, and I will most definitely be a regular now when I crave seafood. Every dish was phenomenal, especially the scallop ceviche (it's a must have). Service was also wonderful, both our server and the GM who came by to chat and introduce himself.
