Diner Reviews
  • "I have been coming here for over 20 years and have seen it go up and down in terms of quality and my enjoyment eating there. I keep coming back because I have a large reserve of goodwill for Kincaids and generally the experience is good. Today was a good day. Our server Sage was friendly and helpful. Our entrees of salmon and mahi mahi were both hot and well prepared. The lobster bisque was good, as was the key lime pie. Add in a beautiful day over the bay and we were glad we went."

  • "It was a delightful experience. The food was beautifully served and everything was fresh. We had a waiter named Noel, who was helpful in suggesting items and extremely polite. We even had a sample dessert of creme brûlée. Lovely. All in all, a very nice place for lunch with a open air view near the airport but you do not hear the planes."

  • "I often take family and visiting friends to your restaurant for a special dinner. The staff is always courteous and knowledgeable, the food on this night was exceptional. 3 of us had the salmon and one had the beef short ribs. The next day my wife and I received sincere thank you notes from our guests (who were visiting from London England). One would think we had prepared the dinner rather than leaving all the work to your wonderful restaurant. I try to go to dinner there at least once every 6 weeks, more often when we are entertaining visiting guests. Thank you, thank your chefs, thank your wait staff."

  • "Good food, good service & great views!! One of my favorite place to eat in the peninsula. Not overly priced this restaurant is a good place to celebrate any occasion. It's not too noisy and I love the ambience. If you come for a late dinner you can watch the sunset during the summer."

  • "We dine here all of the time...kind of our go to until our last visit. The air conditioning system was blowing directly on us...we asked the server if she could do anything and she happily was able to have it turned off. Our experience got better however our food was cold as a result. Not 5 minutes later the air was back on. Our server noticed it right away and called a manager over to us. This is where it went bad to worse. The manager kept saying "I don't know what happened" no apology, just confrontational. I told him that we eat there all of the time and this is the worse experience we have ever had and because of his attitude...we will not be back."

  • "Waiter was very nice. No view where we sat. Size of the Prime Rib (regular cut) was small for price paid. String beans were tough. Prices were very high. Didn't get any real value going there. Will not return to Kincaid's again."

  • "We come here once in a while because we always enjoy the food, the service and the location. However our lunches today were a bit on the salty side, my husband had fish and chips and I had open faced crab sandwich. The service is always great here!! As for the desert, the key lime pie was a flop...too much whipped cream on top and the taste was bland."

  • "Took a good friend here for a farewell lunch--she is retiring from her job and I wanted a nice memory for both of us. Service a bit slow/spotty altho server was pleasant. Food was excellent--my friend had Mahi Mahi with roasted vegetables that was presented very well and delicious and I had burger and yummy house made chips---but we had to wait 40 minutes after ordering to be served. We did come in at end of lunch crowd (reservations were for 12:45pm) but good thing we were not on a regular lunch hour or we would not have made it back to office in time. So---great food, great location, okay service but long wait for food."

  • "Our last dining experience at Kincaid was A+. Return on June 22, with a party of seven to celebrate a birthday dinner. The foods where salty and over cooked. Kincaid has high standards. What happen 2 the Kincaid chefs??? I would like a refund."

  • "We had a reservation and were seated right away. We waited 10 minutes before anyone came to our table and offered us water. Young Waitress little to no experience. Salad was served before our wine arrived. Waitress couldn't answer questions about the menu. We had a birthday celebration, they brought out a small complimentary creme brulee with a candle in it but hadn't brought any desert menus to the table, so our guest ate alone while everyone watched. Food was average. Portions are big. Sauces didn't work on any of the entrees."

  • "My husband and I LOVE Kincaids and our last visit did not disappoint. I had the Halibut Cheeks (to die for) and got a side of the mac & cheese with truffle oil. My husband ate 1/2 my mac and cheese (he is normally not a fan). We started with the Artichoke Crab dip. I love this dip. I had the pear bread pudding for dessert; wasn't the greatest, but wasn't bad. I would stick with the crème brulee in the future."

  • "The food was good as it usually is. I was disappointed int the service and I had made a reservation days before going and asked for a window seat. We were not seated anywhere near the window seating area. What is up with that?"

  • "I went to Kincaid's for lunch after a long flight home from Richmond, VA. My waiter took my drink order shortly after I was seated, but then he disappeared for 20 minutes with no drink and no water. I got the manager and he took my food order after sitting about 25 minutes. I got my drink after a half hour, but I did not receive my food after sitting for 45 minutes. I ordered one of their lunch specials, so it should not have taken this long. Since it took a half hour to get my drink and 45 minutes with no food, I left the restaurant. This is one of my worst dining experiences I've had in a while and I travel and eat out frequently. I won't be going back to Kincaid's any time soon!"

  • "The lunch salad was unbelievably small plus I added salmon to it You charged too much for what I received. Those blue cheese and cream cheese "egg rolls" were not what I wanted- however, they seemed to be the focus. I wanted more vegetables"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We chose a late lunch time (1:30 p.m.) when the restaurant was relatively quiet and we could enjoy our lunch while talking quietly. The lunch was super and the location was perfect for my guests who had just arrived at SFO airport."

  • "We were a party of 9 that ate here on a busy Father's Day weekend. The experience started out great. We were escorted to a table by the window and the waiter took our drink orders while the rest of our party parked. The food was great. They were accommodating about bringing high chairs. But at the conclusion of the meal there was no waiter. My husband had to walk into the kitchen to find the waiter who abandoned us. No offer of coffee or dessert. I understand that 18% is put on to a check of large parties and normally we tip on top of that. In this case it was a rip off. Too bad. The service ruined an otherwise good impression. We won't be back any time soon."

  • "We arrived about 15 minutes late for an already late dinner reservation. The staff was gracious and we never felt rushed. We were offered everything on the menu, including drinks and last call from the bar. We were given great service, ate delicious food in comfort and even though no one else was left in the restaurant, we never felt pressured to leave. I have been to this restaurant many times and would come again many times."

  • "We have dined at Kincaid's several times in the past and had excellent experiences. This time started out great with a beautiful bay view table, delicious martinis, scrumptious raw oysters and amazing lobster bisque soup. The trouble began shortly thereafter. They were out of everything from the special Copper River salmon, to the Argyle Pinot we wanted, to the Porterhouse Steak Option. We ordered the stuffed Sole, Maine Lobster special, and the T bone steak medium rare. The lobster was tiny. The steak was way overcooked and very thin. It was sent back. They were out of T-bones, so substituted a New York properly cooked but thin and arriving after the other two diners had almost finished. I doubt we will be dining at Kincaid's again."

  • "Great fresh fish with very nice preparations; a view of the bay and the planes landing at SFO; creative drinks and several wine choices; and of course my favorite, a fresh pea salad! The prices are respectable for good quality food and a selection for everyone and which they will prepare any way you request. My go to place on the peninsula. "

  • "We love Kincaid's for it's good food and fabulous view, but it is FREEZING in there everytime we go. It is difficult to enjoy your meal when you are cold. The management should do a better job controlling the A/C so that the customers are comfortable, not their kitchen staff. "

  • "This is the last time I went there. The place is expensive and has a stunning bay view. However every time I go there there is at least one item that is simply inedible. This time it was a cocktail, last time it was an entree. Given the price level, there are better places to spend your money"

  • "I ordered the Blue Maytag Salad with Prawns added with dressing on the side. Waiter brought the greens salad with prawns and dressing on the side. I asked what it was and he said I ordered that. My friend spoke up and we both corrected him. He said he would bring the correct salad which would only take a few minutes. Salad came drenched in dressing. I didn't say anything and ate it but it was overdressed with dressing. We had to ask for water refillls and when I ordered a Latte with lite Vanilla flavoring it came just in a cup, no saucer, no spoon and no Vanilla!!! I had to ask for sugar and a spoon. Very disappointed on this visit. I can see why he is not a waiter in the evening or at least I hope not!! "

  • "Kincaid's is one of the few (if only) restaurant I'm aware of that has Copper River Salmon. CRS has a very short season - less than 6 weeks long. Kincaid's does it right -- simply grilled with salt and pepper. Everything was wonderful and we had a great server. "

  • "When I arrived and met my friend, we discovered that they were closed. Yes, I'd received an email from Open Table, but w/o any "subject line" that could have gotten my attention vs the appearance of just another ad. Very disappointed in both you and the restaurant. While I would recommend Kinkaid's, when I went to their website to make my reservation, I was intercepted by Open Table. Open Table is a useful tool, but this experience was very disappointing."
