    This was our second time and first for our guest. The food was perfectly seasoned. Love the jerk in particular. It was excellent on both the lamb and chicken. Greens were good, but small portion for a relatively inexpensive ingredient. Cocktails were lovely. Desserts, banana pudding, sweet potato pie and peach cobbler were all perfect finishes. Our service was spotty at best. No plates for the appetizer and when asked 3 were plopped on the table. Dishes were very slow to be cleared. One of our sides didn’t arrive until quite late into the entree. We had a 6:30 reservation so don’t know how the evening had gone for staff earlier, but I hoped we’d have better service. We will definitely be back as the food and drinks are excellent.

    Food is definitely delicious but service still is super lackluster! Takes entirely too long to get water, your food, your drinks, everything. Our waitress never smiled, just basic customer service is lacking here.

    We came for brunch and were seated well before the 2pm brunch ends. Our serve came but then told us we would have another server come help us. We waited, server came over took drink orders and we informed him we wanted to order brunch. He said let me place drink orders and then I’ll come back for food. It was before 1:30. Server went to cash out another table but they were having an issue so it took him a while to return. He came back to take out order , we begin to order brunch and he said oh it’s after 1:30 and it’s no longer on the menu, it was 1:32. He sis not try to work with us or anything. He just told us to look at the dinner menu and he would be back. We came for brunch not dinner. There are no signs posted that you just order before 1:30. We also could have ordered before that time but due to server taking a while to come to us we missed that window.

    Our waitress was sweet& knowledgeable! Our Food was served as requested, and very tasty! The time stipulation is a turn off! People gather to enjoy, and to set a timer upon sitting is obsurd!I'm sure there are many reasons why the restaurant uses this policy, but for the price you're paying- I disagree with it! People go to establishments to chat with long time friends, business and social events! The idea that people are timed while eating heavy meals and drinking adult beverages is a bit off-putting! Most tables are spending @ best $ 300 to $400. Please rethink the timer!

    This is my second time visiting this restaurant just like the last review the food was delicious. The service was OK. Our waitress wasn’t as on point as I would have liked her to be and this time go around we were sitting in a very low light VERY dem area there wasn’t even enough lighting to not only see your food but take pictures. I would definitely recommend them putting more lights in the back and fix the lightbulb that was broken .

    My family came in from California and I raved about this place, as this was my 2nd time visiting. The service was slow, everyone’s food was really salty. We ordered cocktails and did not receive them. Hopefully my 3rd time around will be as great as the first time

    Had reservations for 2 on Thanksgiving Day. Both ordered catfish it was great. Dressing consistency was bad - too thick. Had good flavor. 1st time guests- like the ambience but too pricey! Side prices outlandish for the amount served. Drink prices too much as well. Recommend with caveat that it is very pricey

    Man, to eat thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant, you just pray and hope it’s delicious. My aunt and uncle came in from San Jose and like supporting black owned businesses. I love Kk but warned them that sometimes the service is subpar. Well I was shocked that Yazmine, our waitress was not only amazing but she was so happy. The food was next level and I was proud to bring my family there for a thanksgiving meal!!! So delicious!!

    My waiter was amazing! He was knowledgeably and very attentive! The food and drink were amazing also! I was looking forward to the chicken and waffles but the menu was limited due to it being Thanksgiving Day. I ended up having the fried catchup and okra was great! I look forward to trying the chicken and waffles on my next visit!

    We enjoyed our girls trip there but I would not recommend for a quiet romantic dinner because the music was very loud like a club. The food was excellent as well as the service, but the drinks were expensive and they had some hidden charges for flavors on some of the food .

    My son and I made a reservation for Kitchen and Kocktails late Saturday night because it was one of the only places that met our criteria: easy access given where we were coming from separately as we are not from this immediate area, easy access to the Meyerson, gluten free offerings, and creative drink options. Several of my friends in the area had recommendations that either looked boring or were booked. Finding Kitchen and Kocktails was just an internet stroke of luck! I saw the shrimp and grits, and I was IN! Everything was absolutely fabulous. Our server (Bri) was very attentive and kind with a gentle sense of humor, which we greatly appreciated. The food was wonderful, the drinks were beautifully presented and yummy. The atmosphere was like an ongoing party (yes, you can read LOUD!), but that was fine ~ we enjoyed it. It was a fun and welcoming atmosphere, with very professional standards. Most tables seemed to be there for some type of celebration, but since we were there for just a bite before heading to a performance, we were able to watch the function of the restaurant a bit. It seems to be highly efficient, turning over tables quickly and effectively without being rushed at all. The only negative is for what we ordered (2 entrees, 2 drinks), we can usually feed an entire family for that ticket! But we had a wonderful experience, and get that we were paying for the experience as much as the product. If we find ourselves back in the area, we would jump at the chance to go back and bring the family! Thanks for being part of a day we will talk about for a long time!

    I’ve been to Kitchen + Kocktails, multiple times and the food and drinks are alway GREAT! But the food is literally all you should good for. The service sucks so you’ll be waiting 1hr and 30mins for food.. oh and I also wanted to reserve a large party reservation, I tried scheduling about 3 weeks in advance and never heard back for anyone. To save you some frustration have no expectations or just go when you literally have nothing to do for the day.. 3/10 for me overall

    Service was extremely slow, over charged on tip, and the food was super salty. Not a good value as you had to order sides and main separately. Drink were the best part of the dinner. Automatic 20% tip was not appreciated as I usually tip that amount for good service, not bad service.

    We had a large party and had a good overall experience. Food was great, but I don’t like the menu restructuring. Everything is “A la carte” so be prepared for that. Dress code isn’t enforced anymore and the music is super loud.
