    this is a black owned restaurant that i’ve been wanting to come to for a while now & finally today i went! this business IS WORTH IT, my king & i went in & our server was Micah (girl, i hope i spelled your name right!!) & she was personable, assertive, professional, & just was honestly a truly nice person (you know energy can be detected lol). we ordered caesar shrimp salad, Mississippi catfish, yams, Mac n’ chz & a frozen strawberry Remy something (i forgot, but it was good). FOOD 10/10, SERVICE 10/10, MUSIC was def a good vibe. I’ll def come back, this place is beautiful…a variety of employees…flavorful food…& parking is right across the street (not a complex area at all). also, ALWAYS tip ur ppl, we talk so much about “black ownership”, but want to complain about prices when present, DON’T DO THAT! ppl “invest” a lot into an establishment, if u don’t have the common respect, consideration, or financial means to tip…than stay at home.

    The food was excellent. Everything we ordered was a hit. I got the shrimp and grits, the frozen strawberry remy, and a side of greens. My husband got the Cajun pasta and we both shared the chicken and waffles. Needless to say, we didn’t finish the food but it was sooo good and the vibe was on point. The first waitress we had wasn’t very attentive but we ended up getting another waitress that was great and we overall experienced good service. I would definitely be back again!

    I'd never been to Kitchen & Kocktails and I had friends coming to town, so I figured it was be a great place for dinner. I was very impressed when I walked in. The place looks great and the music was on point. My friends were running late so my boyfriend and I sat at the bar. We both had the Dusse frozen drink and it was big and delicious. Once my friends arrived, we were seated at a table inside a room next to the larger dining area. We ordered shrimp and grits, Asian Hennessy chicken, fried catfish and smothered porkchops. Everything was delicious. The chicken was so tender it could be cut with a butter knife. I must say that Kitchen & Koctails made a very good first impression.

    Great food…Service could use improvements. This is my second time visiting and both times they seem to forget to input my order with the kitchen after I’ve place it which resulted in a hour wait each time for my food.

    The food was delicious and I don’t mind paying more for great food but the sides were 11 a piece for a very small bowl. Should have had a good serving for the price. Other than that it was great

    Angel was our server and she was amazing! The ambiance was great in Kitchen and Koctails, and food was great as well. The only thing I would recommend is to not have the music so loud and if music is playing for it to be the same music playing for the front of the resturant and the closed off area with the glass doors and bar. Overall great experience and will definitely recommend to friends and family!

    Everything was realny good. The live band and DJ were both really awesome as well. Now for some odd reason it was really hot in there. It kind of remind me of a club. Now this was the first time I’ve had deviled eggs and they were delicious. The 4 stars came from there was only 3 people in my party and we were charged gratuity that none of us recognized until The following day & we all left pretty nice tips. So just look out for that. Other than that, we have a great time

    Food and service were good. Initially Music was nice volume what I’m use to when dinning out. Once DJ arrived Music was way to loud to have conversation during dinner. Don’t like yelling across the table to communicate.

    The music is much too loud, you can't even hear the ppl at your table talking! The food and drinks are good, but a bit pricey for my taste as this is not what I would call UPSCALE.

    Our server was very friendly although a little slow to check back and pick up empty plates / refill water. The food was delicious and the drinks were absolutely amazing. A bit noisy / raunchy for an intimate dinner date because of a birthday crowd but nonetheless it was an energetic and fun environment!

    OMG! What an experience 💥 It was my mother-n-love’s 76th birthday celebration and what a celebration it was. The food was GREAT and the drinks were WONDERFUL! I had been trying to get reservations that was conducive to my schedule and what a surprise when I was able to get reservations for the birthday celebration. I definitely will be coming back. The STAFF was PHENOMENAL and well trained. Keep doing what cha doing because it’s working! It was obvious by the CROWD and those waiting to get in the establishment speaks volumes of how wonderful this place is! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🙌🏽

    Order placed with server, as we waited for our food, two other groups came in ordered received their food and we are still waiting. In fact one table had to go boxes brought to them. Unfortunately the waitress attempted to blame the kitchen, but none of her excuses made sense. It was a horrible showing for my out of town guest to experience. I hadn't been in over two years, probably won't be going back.

    In spite of the rainy day Kitchen + Kocktails provided a great experience for my friend’s birthday. Our waitress, Ashley, was both knowledgeable of the menu, friendly and timely with our requests and order! She gave complimentary drink tastings which enriched our experience! I would definitely recommend this Dallas spot! The food and drinks were TOP TIER!

    As always the food was very good. We went on a Tuesday evening before Thanksgiving so it wasn't very crowded. We were sent a text that our table was ready before time which was a first for us. The hostess was ok but the wait staff was very nice. The food was delicious. We ordered the salmon bites for an appetizer. I ordered the catfish and grits and mac n cheese. The fish and grits weren't hot but it wasn't cold either. Maybe it sat while they waited for my friend's food to be finished. She ordered fried pork chops, yams, and greens. She loved all of her food. I also ordered the Jose Cuervo margarita. I do wish they had a smaller frozen margarita option. They only have the really big ones for $30 and I wasn't able to finish it.

    Great music but just a tad too loud. No paper towels or hand dryer in tge lady's room, and server a little slow bringing the check. Despite these hiccups, I will go back again and recommend to others.
