Dinner for 7 May 10, 2012. We sat in a large area of the restaurant that was serviced by only one waiter. He took and delivered the drink, food and wine orders for the entire area so the service was spotty at best. He tried hard but he was simply overworked. The menu sounded pretty good--nothing off the charts--just steaks, chicken and seafood all prepared in traditional ways. Nothing inventive or interesting coming out of the kitchen. The prices were at the upper range for this type of food. In fact, at the prices being charged one would expect a more exciting range of food options. It took us almost 3 hours to have drinks with appetizers and then our entrees and we served our own wine. Drinks and 3 bottles of wine totaled $200 and the food bill was $350 for 7 people--about $50 each for the food which was two appetizer platters at $28 each (way overpriced for what you got) and then the entrees, which all topped $35 apiece, whether it was fish, chicken or steak. Disappointing overall and I wouldn't go back. By the way, the location is right downtown and they don't valet park so you have to locate the public parking in the basement of the building, find a space then wind your way up two sets of escalators and then find the door to the restaurant. They stamp your parking ticket but the parking alone is enough to make me never go back. Coupled with the ordinary presentations and the high prices, this is a no go. This is my first Kincaid's experience and it seems they are a Morton's wanna be but can't pull it off.

Me and my spouse recently dined here on a weekend trip to Phoenix. Our server was Great. She even showed us the scallops before we ordered because we asked what size they were. We ended up getting the prime rib and it was EXCELLENT. I loved the upscale, yet casual feel of the place..very comfortable. The manager comped all of our drinks because their wasn't a rare cut of prime rib, which was understandable..and mine was perfect anyways. It showed they cared and knew their food. Very cool people and lovely food!!! Thanks for making us feel special!

I went there and got the Prime Rib. Not too many places you can get Prime Rib on a week day. It was excellent, though small. They have a happy hour menu and the cranberry mojito was excellent. The burgers looked terrific. It seems a bit overpriced and nothing extraordinary. It is similar to high end steak place in any major city.

Okay, it's a chop house. And a nice one at that. Great atmosphere, service and food. I had a burger, which was really good, however pricey. I've had better burgers at the same price. If you walk away hungry after eating at this place, you've got some appetite....or a tape worm. :)
