A family supper before the four became two.... to mark a wonderful Californian holiday, so Kincaid’s it was. Delicious food, good cocktails and wonderful views.

The atmosphere is upscale and relaxed. Think business casual. The food is good but not stellar. Service and the view are fabulous. I like taking visitors from the Midwest here. They like the food and are always wowed by the place.

Kincaid’s service and menu options were excellent. My cousin had the sole dish and I had the seafood fettuccini and we enjoyed every bite. Our server was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Food arrived in a timely manner and was hot when we were served. The...More
