I took my boyfriend here for his birthday earlier this week. This was the first time we had been to this restaurant. I never knew such a place existed in Whitby. This restaurant is fabulous. The food was wonderful from start to finish; the ambience was perfect; and the service was remarkable. Our meal for the two of us including tip was over $150, but worth every penny. The staff made my boyfriend's birthday feel very special and I am very grateful for that. Thank you to all at KB for a perfect birthday evening. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back.

I have now eaten at KB four times, and have literally enjoyed every single bite. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and their Thursday wine special is terrific. Chef Kevin Brown makes painstaking efforts to make almost everything in-house, even desserts. And, though a chef of his skill may not want to be remembered for a burger, his, with house-made sour-dough bun, puts all the recent high-end burger chains to shame! His effort to use local ingredients is also notable. I've done the comparison with all the other finer dining establishments in Durham, and there are a few of note, but if you START at KB, it goes downhill from there.

I was quite surprised at the quality of the meal at KB Food. The menu is quite unique, and everything is made with good quality ingredients. There seems to be no processed foods anywhere other than sugars used in the desserts. While a bit louder than I'd have liked, the food is more than enough to make up for the ambient noise level. Prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the food. Definitely a repeat restaurant for me. It's higher on the price point for Whitby, but it's a very relaxed atmosphere.

Hello Ray,

thank you for your feedback, I am very happy to hear you enjoyed our restaurant!

It does get a bit loud - some of our friends are really fun - but I am glad to hear it didn't ruin your evening. Sometimes the back room is a bit quieter, if you ask we will try to find a quieter area for you.

Hope to see you soon,

Kevin Brown

An incredibly unique and enjoyable dining experience. The menu changes weekly - sometimes daily - based on the availability of the locally sourced food this place is known for. We have been a dozen times and never had the same thing twice - all of it has been pretty superior to anything around here. Great wine selection (as always we want more VQA but hardly a dealbreaker), the staff is surprisingly on top of the ever-changing food selection and make great suggestions every time. Simply stellar.
