I gotta say that the place is quite beautiful, we was just seated in front of the bay and we had that nice view of the sunset while eating. The food was just awesome! If you are in the Bay Area, it's not a place you can avoid. Plus the staff is so nice.

Love this restaurant. I know this restaurant is known for its seafood but I go for their prime rib. Absolutely the most perfectly prepared prime rib ever! Service is impeccable. Ressies are sometimes hard to come by at the last minute but a walk-in sometimes pays off. Word of advice--- it's expensive and noisy but that's all part of the... More

Kincaid's has a lot going for it. The 2 most important things are great food and great location. Located 20 feet From San Francisco Bay, Kincaid's offers a full menu and wine list. Prices are mid to mid high but worth it. A nice place for a date or business dinner.

We went for happy hour and our waitress was great and friendly once we got one. But it literally took 25 minutes for someone to greet us at our table and another 30 minutes for our drinks to be delivered and by that time happy hour was over. Fortunately, the waitress went to bat for us with management and got... More

Over the years, I have taken many customers to Kincaid's for lunch. Each and every time, the impression Kincaid's made on my customers was outstanding. The view is great. If you like watching airplanes pass by on final approach that makes the view even better. Then then is the excellent service, excellent food and a menu that changes to provide... More

Consistently good food and service. A favorite place for business lunch or casual dinner with a date. Bar service is excellent as well.

We chose a table overlooking the bay and the jets landing at SFO. We watched the sailboards and sailboats. Since they were not yet crowded we got lavish attention. A major attraction was that Kincaid's is a short walk from the Embassy Suites where we were staying before our early morning flight.

The recommended dish was the halibut cheeks. I have to say I never knew a fish has cheeks nor could they taste so good. Very good service.

We have gone to Kincaid's a few times in the past and enjoyed wonderful meals in a beautiful setting. Our last experience was extremely disappointing. We dined at 6:30 on Wednesday, June 4. Our visit started out great with a wonderful bay view table, excellent martinis, delicious fresh oysters and scrumptious lobster bisque soup. It was all downhill from there.... More

Have not been here in a while and like that old pair of shoes it still "feels " comfortable ! While the view of the Bay really sells this place the food and always competent wait staff really makes Kincaid's. The seafood is always fresh and varied in offering. One of my clients had a steak and he thought is... More
