Been here a while, but Kevin is still a good choice in dining. The food is fresh and the service is outstanding. The tuna appetizer is a citywide favorite.

Pros: Excellent food.

Cons: Worst, most arrogant service ever encountered. Have you ever had a waiter bring you the wrong entree and tell you that you ordered it?

I do a lot of business traveling, and always am "up" for new restaurants, preferably French, in the cities I go to. Kevin was highly recommended by a business colleague and I have to say it totally exceeded my high expectations.

I hesitate to even tell you about Kevin because there's a limit to the number of people they can accomodate in any one evening. This is probably our favorite restaurant in all of Chicago. The food is amazing; it's consistent,

Pros: Fresh and delicious food preparations; nice ambiance.

Cons: Can be loud at times -- but that's easily forgiven once the food starts arriving.

The chef does a great job with the menu here. They have a really nice private room for a group of up to about 30. Food is very good, reasonable prices

I love this place! When I visit, I usually order two to three appetizers and skip the entrees. The appetizer portions are just perfect and the menu is so exciting. The entrees are good as well, but more common and large portioned. Try

After all I had heard of the food at Kevin, the four of us were disappointed. The food was good, but not exceptional, especially for the high price. More than the food disappointing us was the service. The busboy literally threw down

After seeing so many Bistros & Chains off Michigan Ave, what a delight to discover Kevin's.

We arrived to a mostly empty restaurant at 5:45PM. Leaving around 7:30, the place was packed, and folks were lined up at the bar. MAKE
