Kiki's has always been a great place for dining. You are meet inside by the owners, it makes you feel like a guest in there home. Servers are well informed and helpful in ordering, we have never had a bad meal or service.

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....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....More
