Great portions, presentation,Great portions, presentation, selection, favors! Very nice that dinner was included in hotel package! We wouldn't have eaten there otherwise. Monkfish was very good!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSensational SunsetWe went to Kimballs Kitchen on 6/11/13, We arrived with a party of 4 at 6 PM and had an amazing dinner. Jenna was our server and she did a excellent job, not too pushy or rushing us. The steaks were great as well as everything else, however, the best part of the night was the amazing sunset view from the large windows of the restaurant. It is an expensive place to eat but the food, setting, service, and sunsets are more than worth the money!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial occasion in the outer banksFood is excellent and atmosphere is top notch. We ate as we watched the sun set and it was gorgeous. Great cocktails and wine. The drive is about 25 minutes from nags head but the trip through duck was also beautiful.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStunning RestaurantThis is one of the most beautiful restaurants on the island with incredible views of the sound and sunsets. The wine list is incredible! However, I did miss the elegance of the food that was part of The Left Bank before new management and name change. I much prefer the cleaner food with subtle flavors that meld elegantly together. Kimball's Kitchen has not yet achieved this and seems to be leaning more toward the "steak house" feel, with heavier options and few vegetarian ones. The staff was incredibly attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Refuge From The StormIt may have been windy and wet outside but our dinner at Kimball's could not have been nicer! The staff was knowledgable, service was excellent and the food was supurb! Paired with a wonderful bottle of red, our special occasion was celebrated in style. We recommend Kimball's highly!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGuarenteed great timeMy wife and I go here every year while on vacation and every year we are more than impressed with the food and service. Frank took care of us all night. Frank see you next year!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh ClassVery classy; great staff; beautiful view; great food, well prepared.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome sunset view!Kimball's Kitchen is elegant, quiet and the staff is very attentive. The scallops & filet were delicious. The sunset view on the sound is awesome. Just what my husband & I were looking for in a restaurant that is not "big box, crowded & noisy". Def would go back!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAhhhh the view....Kimball's was a very pleasant experience. The atmosphere is wonderful and one of the few restaurants where you can take advantage of the amazing sunsets in the OBX. Service wonderful. Food great, but being a more upscale restaurant win upscale prices, they could have added SOMETHING else to the plate with the wonderful local tuna. Pricey enough that I won't go often, but overall great!!!!!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missedFor our one night out during our vacation, we could not have chosen a better place! Completely Devine experience. Don't waste anymore time reading the reviews, make a reservation and enjoy.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual EligenceThe setting on the Sound with the sun setting is world class. The wait staff was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.
The kitchen seemed a bit slow in getting the food out but the flavor of the food was generally very good. They rebranded themselves as a steakhouse type of restaurant. I ordered their highest price steak, the Prime NY Strip. It was properly cooked but the meat was lacking in flavor and tough as leather through out.
The wife's crab cakes were delicious. The wait staff tried to make amends by commping a desert and after dinner drink.
Agood experience but not the great one I was expecting.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view in the Outer Banks.Best view in the Outer Banks. Sunset was AMAZING. The hostess, bartender, and waiter were all tremendous. They were all very personable and quite charming. This is our new favorite place.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining Option in DuckMy husband and I were frequent diners at the Left Bank and looked forward with trepidation to its replacement. We dined at Kimball's Kitchen last week and had a memorable experience. While different from the Left Bank, the food was excellent. The ambience and views, of course, remained incredible. Despite the fact that the restaurant was completely full, the service was fantastic. Our waiter, Matt did a superb job, as did the remainder of the staff. We look forward to continuing to eat at Kimball's Kitchen whenever we are in the Outer Banks (which is quite frequent). Our only disappointment is the fact that the restaurant is only open May through Oct. Hopefully, it will be so successful that management will rethink this decision.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at Sanderling is backAfter several years of declining food at Sanderling, Kimball's Kitchen brings dining back. The setting is phenomenal overlooking the Pamlico Sound, and the sunset view makes for a most romantic evening. The oyster bar is a wonderful addition. Our soft shell crabs were well prepared. The salad was fresh and inviting, and the wine list notable, but pricey like everything at Sanderling. This is a great restaurant for a special Outer Banks experience.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss Kimballs KitchenKimballs Kitchen was a wonderful experience with a wonderful staff, excellent food and beutifull restaurant with unmatched views of the Currituck Sound.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant locationWe had a 7:30 reservation so could watch the sunset from our table. The food is served in very small portions, fine with me, but just so you are aware. The $28 scallop dish had only four scallops though for me that was enough. The sides were extra and a la carte which was surprising. The service is very good, all in all, I don't think we'd go again but we did enjoy the evening.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
