I chose Kenny's for my birthday dinner. I had a group of 23 and couldn't afford the thousands it costs at other restaurants to have this big of a group. Right away when I called Kenny's for my reservation they were accommodating and asked questions to decipher what I might need. We were placed in a back room that pretty much felt private! I loved the environment when I stepped in. It seems like your neighborhood local italian place and felt extremely homey. It quickly became crowded as the night when on. The staff were friendly and the restaurant smelt amazing!! The staff made it look effortless to serve my table of 23. We didn't have a long wait for anything!! We ordered the garlic bread. This was not ordinary bread, though. There was something unique about it and it was devoured by the table. I was recommended the lamb with a wine reduction and parmesan risotto for my meal and I cannot recommend it enough! I still dream about the meal. It was so decadent. The flavors just blended perfectly together. This restaurant is just perfect for a fun weekend night or a special occasion. Kenny's can do it all! I will be coming back throughout the year and most likely for my birthday this year as well.

Our family of 4 stopped in for dinner and was very pleased with the menu offerings. The staff are all very pleasant/friendly and from the moment you walk in you can tell locals like to dine here. The italian bread served was warm and tasty, not hard and chewy. I enjoyed the East Coast Linguini which was one of the best butter garlic sauces I have ever had!! Generous portion of shell fish too. Other entrees ordered were Lasagna, Chicken Parm, and Pizza all very good. The Bellini Martini was superb. Observations that doesn’t get this restaurant 5 stars is 1: the ambience is conflicted: With picnic styled tablecloths, many many framed pictures on the wall (overkill to be honest) it screams “down home” family/neighborhood flare but then there’s is dim lighting almost dark atmosphere for some odd reason, but this is definitely not a setting for a romantic date night dining experience. 2: Bathroom also needs more frequent checks as trash was overflowing and tissue debris all over the floor.

Absolutely amazing. I came with a friend I had not seen in many years. The staff was friendly and asked us what brought us there and we explained that this was the first time we had seen each other since 1983. They brought us a complimentary appetizer (bruschetta) and it was some of the best I have ever had. We were encouraged to order two half orders if we were undecided between two items so we definitely did this. The portions were large and I can guarantee we did not leave hungry. Our waiter was attentive and kept our glasses filled. Even though we sat and talked for over 3 hours, we were never rushed. Can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend Sammy’s ravioli with fettuccine sauce.

Even though you don't need a reservation, the person seating me put my info into the computer like I had one anyway. Time consuming. Took me about a minute to get away from the "wait to be seated booth". I know it's not much time, but should've been only seconds. Waited 20 minutes for someone to take my order. When I got here, the place had only been open 10 minutes, and had only 2 tables in use. By the time I got my order placed, tables were almost full, and other guests that came in after me were already eating. Waiter took my order, then asked about my salad and bread. I saw nothing on the menu about those coming with my meal, so I asked. Those cost extra. The way he asked was like they came with the meal. So, if I hadn't inquired about those, my bill would've been about $7 more than expected. $4.99 was the cheapest salad on the menu. Received my food almost 15 minutes after ordering. Came out fresh and hot. Although the lasagna tasted great, I couldn't eat whole thing. (bottom pasta was so hard, I couldn't even cut it with the butter knife at the table). When I got done with the eatable portion, you could see the bottom was burnt. Not just overdone, but black al around the edges about a quarter inch. This was fine dining, NOT at its finest. I let the wait staff know about pasta, they gave me a $10 dining certificate for next time. And overt charged me for the lasagna from what the menu price was.

Specially drove 18 miles out of our way to eat here because of the rating. So disappointing. The food was bland . Requested lots of veggies and our pasta got 3 broccolini pieces and one mushroom cut in two and lots of tomatoes as our veggies. I had a to go order and when we got back we found that a lot of liquid leaked out of the box. Also no napkins or forks were provided. I guess we could eat with our hands. Would not recommend this place

We have been going to Kenny’s for many years since he opened his first restaurant at this location. He now has several other restaurants but this is our favorite. All of his food is delicious from a great burger to a gourmet dinner meal. Always busy so go at off peak times.

My husband and teenage daughter were traveling into Dallas from Colorado for a soccer tournament and I was researching food options and came across Kenny’s. My daughter has several allergies (Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Shellfish), so as you can imagine, eating, while traveling, can be quite difficult for her/us. I emailed Elizabeth Mardeda, Managing Partner, at Kenny’s, to find out if there was anything on their menu that may accommodate her restrictions. Not only was Liz willing to go above and beyond to accommodate our families needs, but she was also so sweet! Kenny’s was willing to make a special batch of Gluten Free meatballs, create a salad specifically to her liking, and Liz even went to the local grocery store to purchase the special Gluten/dairy/soy free Ranch dressing my daughter loves to have with her Salads!! She said she “loves seeing great Mom's going above and beyond for their children!” Liz, you can’t imagine what this meant for our family. The burden and anxiety of food allergies, especially while traveling out of state, can make any trip stressful. However, because of you, not only did my daughter have an AMAZING meal (she said it was the BEST, EVER!!), but you made our trip to Dallas an unforgettable one!! Thank you!

Waited 45 minutes for a table at 6 o’clock on a Thursday. Bar service was subpar because they were so busy, but happy hour prices last until 7. The food was very good, large portions, and table service was fine. The best deal is ordering half and half entrees, so that you can try two dishes at once. All four of us enjoyed the opportunity to taste two+ entrees. No room for dessert… Looking forward to a return visit.

My wife and I visited Kenny’s East Coast Pizza for lunch. We regularly frequented Kenny’s other local restaurants. Kenny’s ECP has the worst service of any restaurant I’ve ever patronized. The food is mediocre, and certainly not worth putting up with the horrendous service.

When you find a place that offers excellent food (the three of us had and highly recommend the Gnocchi, Fettuccine Carbonara and the Lasagna although we're pretty sure everything else on the menu is just as good) along with attentive but unobtrusive service and reasonable prices you just have to go back again and again. We certainly will! Oh, and leave some room to try the Tiramisu and Cannoli. You'll be glad you did!

Had a reservation but still had to wait awhile but Monday night martini specials made up for it. Food was delicious from bruschetta to pasta to shrimp to tiramisu. Really good Italian food. A little pricey and waitress could have been friendlier but food made up for it.

My friend loves this place and wanted to take me there for lunch. It was a bit crowded, but we were seated within 10 minutes. The hostess was very nice. Our waiter came to our table and took our drink order and stated he would bring us some bread while we decided on our meal. He returned, minus our bread, and took our order. Our food arrived promptly. I highly recommend the bolognese, it is excellent. Our waiter did stop by in passing to check on us. We both laughed about no bread. My friend described our waiter as nervous. When he brought our check and returned, he told us to have a good night, then corrected and said afternoon. I guess I can sample the bread on my next visit.

This place is worth it 100%. The food was excellent & the server was so nice & to top it off we had a special occasion (a graduation) & the owner came over & acknowledged the graduate & even gave her a congratulations card. She was so nice & treated us like we were someone special. We all left smiling.

Great Atmosphere, Service outstanding, and good food. We had Calamari as an appetizer, Sicilian Shrimp, Eggplant Parmigiana, and Shrimp Scampi as entrees. Food is outstanding and portions are huge. The service is excellent.

Amazing food and service! A Friday night Italian feast. Amazing service by Key - someone else recommended him as a server and he did not disappoint! Excellent menu suggestions. Kenny’s allows you to split order most entrees so I tried gnocchi and eggplant. Amazing. We will be back.
