    Have some friends up from Canada and fatter a days’ excursion wanted somewhere we know to be reliably good. Unfortunately our guests thought that his dish was overly salty but when mentioned to the waitress she said the kitchen could be a bit heavy handed with the salt and she’d mention it to them. Not really the response appropriate in my view. The wine ordered wasn’t available although it was the most expensive white in the list, a chilled bottle wasn’t available. Bit sloppy overall which was a disappointment but my fish and chips was delicious, so some pints scored. Nice cocktails and still better than a lot of places in Anchorage.

    The food was great and the service was good. I was a little disappointed in that I indicated we'd be celebrating our anniversary when I made the reservation, but nothing about that was mentioned during our visit. A simple "Happy Anniversary" would have been nice.

    Visited Kinley’s while on vacation from TX. We really enjoyed the meals: Scallop special and Duck Breast. Prices were a little less than we were expecting and service was fine. Place was pretty crowded with a sign saying no walk-in accepted on the Tuesday evening - so best to use Open Table for an advance reservation. Would definitely come again.

    We ordered the halibut dish. But I could swear that what we got was fried Cod with the cherry sauce. I’m a long-term Alaskan and I know the difference between Cod and Halibut.

    Kinley's Restaurant and BarResponded on July 15, 2022We assure you that we serve halibut. Kinley's would not try to serve something that is not what we tell you it is.

    We have loved Kinley’s since our first meal there in 2013. Their menu and dining room has been updated, yet remains reliable and comfortable. The drink menu is legit. The food is killer. The staff is family to each other and it shows. We have celebrated wedding anniversaries six through 15 with Kinley’s and we aim to celebrate 16 through 50.

    Found this restaurant on Open Table and easily got reservations for a Saturday night. We were a half hour early and table was ready for us. The appetizer of bacon wrapped dates were really good. Crab cakes were very fresh. Everything was delicious. Great variety on the menu and nice wine selection. Naomi was our server and she was fantastic. Great personality, friendly and quick. I would definitely recommend Kinley's for dinner!

    While there were some minor 'misses' on the food overall it was an extraordinary experience. Standouts: Appetizers and waitress. Forget our server's name but the entire wait staff was very attentive. The appetizers were among the best I've had anywhere. The oysters were fresh, cold and well-shucked (a rarity that people don't talk enough about IMHO. I want the liquor still in the shell, it's half the flavor). The 'calamari steak' was hands down the best calamari I have ever eaten - exquisite sauce on it that we sopped up with the garlic bread. The dessert was sweet and flavorful, we had the chocolate cake with the ganache. Opportunities: Duck lacked flavor and wasn't quite seared right, the corn fitters were a bit overdone, and the strawberry mignonette for the oysters was ambitious but a bit bland - easily fixed with some cocktail sauce they brought right out to us.

    I had the special for the evening. Scallops with a pork belly, pineapple and cherry sauce. The dish was amazing. I would absolutely recommend that it be added to the menu when ever the scallops are available. Paired with great wine and great service it was a perfect night out.

    Kinley’s is among the best restaurants in Anchorage. Whether you are feeling like the royal Filet Mignon or a soul satisfying Beer Battered Halibut - they have several items you and your party will enjoy! The price is consistent with the menu selections and presents solid value for the cuisine they serve. Good service and ambiance are always part of the dining experience, as well. Don’t forget to order the bacon wrapped dates!

    Fantastic food. Calamari steak was phenomenal. Halibut cheeks and halibut filet were cooked to perfection. Enjoyed a wine flight and several cocktails. Came here for my birthday and was an added surprise that they gave me a dessert on the house! Will definitely be back and recommend to our friends.

    From the oysters and bacon wrapped dates, to the salmon and halibut dinners, and then the crème brulee and cheese cake for desert -- I can't say enough! And the wine worked wonderfully with everything. The staff were very attentive and made excellent suggestions. I had last been in in February and was so happy to share dinner with a first time visitor from out of State who really enjoyed the food too!

    Wonderful, creative food in a quiet, safe environment. Low noise level, good spacing. I had fantastic duck with corn fritters, broccolini, and sausage. My husband, of German ancestry, loved the bratwurst. My cocktail was refreshing and the drinks available were perfect. I couldn’t recommend it more highly. Note that when reservations in the restaurant area are not available, “bar seating” gets you a nice comfortable booth. A third category gets the high-topped chairs.

    Our server was great. Very kind and accommodating. The "special" was bad. Returned it because the mushrooms were filled with sand. The response was, "the cooks said they are natural and can come with soil in them". I've never had sand or soil in a mushroom, especially in a nice restaurant. Medium rare steak came well-done. Vegetables were raw. We decided we will never go again. Not because of the service, it was great. The food was not prepared well for the price.

    Kinley's Restaurant and BarResponded on June 18, 2022At Kinley's we do hold our food and service to high expectations. We are truly disappointed in our shortcomings in your visit last night. We are always striving for a great experience for everyone. It is also disappointing that you do not state that we apologized and took both items off your bill, as we should have. No charge= no price.

    Kinley's. If you don't eat anywhere else in Anchorage, eat here. Foodie delight. We didn't even take pix. We had fried brie with fig puree, pistachios, grapes, and basalmic reduction (A), crab and scallop cakes with aioli and tomato/scallion salad (A-), grilled scallops with wild blueberry beur blanc and red potato/red onion/zuchinni saute (A+), halibut cheeks, lightly fried with green pea risotto, olive oil and basalmic (A+), and a chicken bacon ranch pub sammy with crispy seasoned fries (A-). Brought home dessert because it wouldn't fit, but I have a mocha pecan torte sitting next to me right now and calling my name.
