This place was amazing! So very delicious. Jen, our server, was great. So sweet and hospitable. The food was spectacular. Get ready to take home left overs because the portions are enormous! Perfect for sharing! The tuna tartare was the freshest and yummiest I’ve ever...had. The short ribs were literally falling off the bone, served with delicious homemade mashed potatoes, and steamed veggies cooked to perfection. The Lomein was also fabulous. Can’t wait to come back and try some more menu options.More
The menu was available for takeout due to Coronavirus - so we did. Everything was packed neatly with condiments included.Huge portions - each dish easily fed three people. The menu was extensive and delicious.
Kitchen 18 is superb. There are numerous daily specials. Items on the regular menu are also very good. You can't lose with this one unless you happen to visit when the restaurant is packed and can't get a table. Really a nice place to have...a great meal.More
So after all the hoopla about Kitchen 18 in Scottsdale, Arizona I had to go and check it out while vacationing in the area.
Here’s my review -
Service - A+
Portion Sizes - A+
Prices - A
Quality of food- A
Flavor - B-...The service is outstanding. They are SO friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Even the woman who poured our water what beyond lovely and helpful.
The portion sizes are gargantuan. There’s no way to leave there hungry.
The prices, especially for kosher food, were very reasonable and fair.
The flavor of the food is my only complaint. It was totally inconsistent.
Some of the dishes were outstanding and some were the blandest food I’ve ever eaten. As if there were two different chefs in the kitchen!
Chicken matzo ball soup - amazing.
Crispy beef - out of this world.
BBQ Ribs Platter - fall off the bone, flavorful and delicious.
Spaghetti Bolognese - my 5 year old son devoured it. (Disclaimer: I didn’t taste it, but he is a very picky eater)
Their French fries were great.
The side salad was very good.
Ribeye steak platter - bland as can be. How do you ruin steak?? Salt & pepper. Grill. I make it at home all the time and have never left it unfinished. I actually left steak over when we left. It was that bad. ZERO flavor. I’m still shaking my head wondering who cooked this thing.
Beef lo-mein - must be the same chef as the one who cooked the ribeye. Flavorless. lo-mein was greasy and so disappointing.
Egg rolls - three tasteless egg rolls with tasteless, unflavored cabbage filling. The dipping sauce was decent.
The waiter was amazing. He brought me a homemade sauce to doctor up my blond dinner so I could choke it down. Very accommodating and a great personality to boot. (Shout our to Carlos!).
All in all, if there weren’t so many other restaurants in the area, I’d go back and keep trying things on the menu. But since there are, I’m going to pass on a return visit before heading back home.More
The menu lists a vast selection of dishes ranging from traditional Jewish style, sushi, chinese and hamburgers. Everything ordered at our table of 4 was good to very good. The prices, considering the generous portions are reasonable.
The service is another story. We had a...6:30 reservation and were seated immediately. It was another 20 minutes before we received menus or any other service. Our order was taken after another 10-15 minutes and our dinners were served in reasonable time thereafter but once the food was on the table, we were ignored. if we wanted ketchup, salt & pepper or more water, we had to get up and get it ourselves as you would in a fast food place. A server did come by to see if everything was OK but not until we were almost done eating.
I have been to this restaurant a few times with friends and family who only eat Kosher food. I would consider going there more often if it had real restaurant service and wasn't so noisy.More
This restaurant has fish, chicken, beef, steak, wraps, Chinese food, Mexican food, and then some. You could come here 5 times and have 5 very different meals. We ate here 3 times during our 5-day visit.
My wife loved the lamb stew. We both enjoyed...the sweet potato fries, beef tacos, pecan pear salad, and chicken schnitzel. The Eggplant beef was fabulous.
Desserts were pedestrian. Service was excellent.More
