What an exceptional experience for a graduation celebration! Our special thanks to Anthony for planning the dinner reception and to Sarah and Jake for over the top service. The food and atmosphere were perfect for our group of eleven (11). I highly recommend Kincaid's for a night out or any special occasion. A perfect 10 for us! Everyone raved about their food.

“Great food, high prices”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

What sets Kincaid's apart is the service. The waitstaff is fantastic. The food is good, and the prices are high.

“Good Food, Overrated Reputation”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Enjoyable, but this place frustrates me. People tell me "you have to try Kincaid's, it's a great steak house." I guess I have a different opinion. If by great, you mean overpriced and full of itself, then that is accurate. Only certain people can afford it, therefore it is wonderful. Um, no. At the root, this restaurant is just yet another restaurant that sells steak and seafood. Ho hum. Nothing about this place validates its reputation. Good food. Good wine selection and top shelf alcohol selection. Good service. And that is fine. It's not a bad place.

Would I go back? Yeah, if you pick up the bill. Otherwise, I'll find another steak house that has at least the equal food quality minus the white glove upcharge.

Thank you for the valuable feedback. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know. I would like to talk to you about your experience-since we certainly didn't deliver on a great experience. I will be back in the restaurant on Friday and would love to give you a call,

I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to let us know.

“Manager saved the evening”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Dined last night at Kincaid's with another couple. We had reservations at 7 PM just after the pre-theatre rush. The evening started well with just a small hiccup when we found out that they had run out of prime rib. We thought it unusual to be out so early on a Friday night, but the aforementioned theatre rush may well have cleaned them out.

We moved on to share the artichoke dip appetizer (very good) and then ordered. Three of us had the NY strip and prawns, while one ordered the filet. The two ladies requested their streaks at medium well, while the guys went for medium rare.

Here is where things took a strange turn. When the meals arrived, three of the four were cooked incorrectly, they quickly took the plates back to the kitchen and offered to make sure that they one that was cooked correctly "stayed fresh". Soon new plates appeared and the three incorrectly cooked staeks were now done as requested, but the one that was returned to the kitchen to "stay fresh" was now ice cold. Back it went. The Manager quickly appeared and acknowledged the error and said that they would take care of us. Soon the fourth meal appeared and was cooked as ordered. The Manager stopped by again to see how things were going and to let us know that all four entrees would be taken off the bill. We all appreciated that the Manager did acknowledge the mistake, apologized for same and then made things right.

We all agreed that they handled the situation as well as they could once the mistake was pointed out. All four of us enjoy Kincaid's and will return, however, next time we will come early enough to enjoy the prime rib.

The Manager, (I believe his name was Anthony) did turn a bad situation into one where we left satisfied.

Took mother to Kincaid's for brunch on Mother's Day. The complimentary muffins were warm and moist, a true taste treat. The Strata, Beef Welington, and Eggs Benedict were a treat to the taste buds. The service was exceptional. We will be back soon.
