We booked for an 830pm dinner, but were easily accommodated at 8pm.the staff were delightful and it was obvious from their greetings to the patrons that this was a place with a regular clientele . There was a tasting menu available but we decided on the a la carte. The place was not crowded and we had had a choice... More

Went to an early dinner before a show and had a great first time experience. Wide variety of menu options for all, huge wine list, very good specialty cocktails! Appreciated that they asked if we had any food allergies. Bar was out of frangelico and the manager came over to apologize and take personal responsibility. All of our food was... More

Had not been to MK for several years, and it was again a wonderful experience We celebrated our anniversary as well as our granddaughters start of her new school year. They printed a special commemorative menu for our dinner, as well as a special personalized desert for her. At 7yrs old, am sure this will also become her favorite restaurant!... More

As a family of 6 adults we have been here several times and have always enjoyed the service, the food and the atmosphere. At times, it can be somewhat conversation challenged due to the high ceilings. In any event I would highly recommend MK for a date night, family celebration or a business dinner to impress a prospective client.

Every part of our evening there was spectacular. The decor is modern and trendy but the room is not overly noisy like most successful restaurants these days. The service was friendly and good. The food was amazing. Every bite exploded with flavor. the octopus was grilled to perfection, the duck was tender, and the frites (French fries), delicious. Desserts were... More

I liked the menu, the ambience and the level of service. Disliked the fact that tables were very close to each other and you don't have a enough space so not the romantic kind of place. Value for money but of course I am talking about fine dining.

For the seventh year running, my husband and I came from Michigan to celebrate our summer birthdays at our favorite restaurant, MK. As always, the dinner was outstanding, and the service truly unparalleled. As she has done each year, Megan customized our menus with a birthday greeting, and had the chef write "Happy Birthday" on our dessert plates. She even... More

I had long leisurely dinner with my girlfriends after a long day of shopping. MK definitely lives up to the hype. The food was fabulous. For appetizers, I had the crab toast with truffle oil and house made fettucine with wild mushrooms. My main course was the roast duck breast and dessert for the table was the Big Chocolate.
