I enjoyed the food & my mom did not. It was her first time and she felt it was overpriced and not that great. The service was so-so.

Been there multiples times and it's always great food and friendly vibe. A tried & true gem. Seafood, steaks, & burgers are all wonderful. And they have a great bar where you can get food if you don't have a reservation

Great experience! I have celiac and need gluten free options. Our server, Erin, was wonderful in pointing out options. A couple great local cider options. I highly recommend K&L Bistro!

There was a lot of hype about this place when it opened. It was compared to Bistro des Copains in Occidental which, sadly, is now gone. The food at K&L is really okay, especially if you pick simpler country fare. But there is no trained...More

I had a solo dinner here. The menu is wide ranging and has an attractive choice. The oysters were great, there were three kinds. The sole in a traditional butter sauce was very good. Service was “functional”. A good wine list by the glass and...More
