Some Friends here in the Valley of the Moon wanted to take us to a place of our choice, and I was eager to try the "new" Kenwood Resturant and Bar. So, we went on a Saturday night to see what kind of crowd was also checking out this newly re-opened eatery.
Things seemed to be busy enough and the staff was very friendly. We decided to eat in the bar, as they had a nice fire going. They offer several beers on tap, which we liked, but most are odd ones. The ambiance was fine and the decor looked like it was still evolving; they need some plants and more art to cozy things up.
The food came in a timely manner and the presentation was well done. We had a lamb combo dish and the lamb steak (leg slice?) was dry. The sausage and the little chop were delicious. We also ordered a beef noodle dish rather like a bourguignon, and the burger. Overall, we were satisfied.
We all agreed on a few points: the food was good, the service was great, the menu didn't offer enough options, and overall, the prices are too high. To elaborate a little, we felt that it was too expensive not only for what we got but for the area as well. Being locals, we really, really want (and need!) a place that doesn't just cater to tourists. There are some GREAT places around here that offer GREAT food and GREAT value, so we are due for one that takes things up a notch....not 5 notches! $33 for an entree? Well, if you must, but then offer several other options in the $18 - $25 range so we can enjoy an appetizer or two as well (appetizers were $14+).
Good luck to them, and we hope they modify things enough so that on cold rainy nights in the winter, the locals can support them too.
