I have been to KiKi's several times and it remains a solid "go to" place for great food, service and atmosphere! As a self confessed foodie, I try many of Chicago's new and upcoming restaurants and many I leave with the "one and done" mantra. Not so with KiKi's. It continues to serve outstanding food while not breaking the bank.... More

Kiki's Bistro never fails! The menu selections are what you would typically find in a bistrot in France. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Some are French speaking also. Every time I have dinner there, I feel like I am back dining in Paris!

Great service and wine list. The food was good. The interior is warm and inviting. At 50, we were the youngest patrons. Nice to visit once.

This restaurant has been here over 25 years, but I just found it. Any trip to Chicago should include a visit here if you love French food. The atmosphere pulls you out of the busy city and places you in a quaint French country bistro. Very attentive staff who are knowledgeable and friendly. We started with French Martinis, which were...

This is a gem of a spot. Great vibe, fabulous food and the service was PERFECT! Two of us had the Steak Frite and one had the Bouillabaisse. Everything was delicious. Can't wait to go back.

The attention by the owner was over the top! The food was great as normal. This is a great place. The escargot was great, the duck with red cabbage is back for the fall menu, and we took a side order home. We had to take some more red cabbage home.... The profiteroles and Lemon tart would allow you to... More

When I think French bistro and cannot go to Paris, we go to Kikis, no thought process or other places are talked about as an alternative. Over the years we've gone to many French bistros in chicago and suburbs but they always fall short. You know a good bistro by the wine list. In Paris bistros serve Cabernet Franc wines...... More

A meal at Kiki's is on the to-do list every time we take a girls' trip to Chicago. Classic French cooking, deliciously executed. Between the liver pate or beet salad appetizers, or the duck, chicken, lamb, and filet, I've never had a meal here that wasn't perfectly cooked and delicious. For dessert, treat yourself have the chocolate mousse!

Have been wanting to try this place for a while and was not disappointed. Had the escargot for an appetizer and it was wonderful. Trout almondine for my entrée was delicious and chocolate mousse for dessert was good. Mousse appeared pre-plated which was a bit of a let down. Wine by the glass selection was decent and I enjoyed a... More
