    It's been a few years since our first visit to Kincaids. The decor has changed, not as nautical as before, more relaxing. It was a busy night, fun atmosphere. We had a table next to the windows and able to watch the planes landing and taking off at the San Francisco Airport. The staff was very friendly and made sure that all of our needs were taken care of. The food, from appetizers to dessert was excellent. The Crab Cakes were some of the best I've had, crispy on the outside, moist and full of crab on the inside, not lots of filler. My partner had the Prime rib and I tried one of the Chef's Specials that evening, Citrus Brined Pork and Scallops, wonderful flavor on both. We shared a dessert, Warm Pear Bread Pudding. Just Great!

    We've always love Kincaid's for the exceptional. In-service not to mention the great views. For this visit, we brought an exchange student would just arrived from Poland for dinner. It's much better to wait out the traffic if you Kays and actually sitting in traffic! Of course, now she's going to hold all American restaurants to the "Kincaid's" standard. Most won't measure up!

    This is a lovely large room, noisey, congested, well organized, with a great view from all corners. The quality of food is good. The quantity not over-portioned. Wait staff attentive and friendly. This is an "old-school" 50's style surf n turf place that we can reccommend.

    My wife and daughters went here for our wedding anniversary. Upon arriving and checking in, we were seated within 5 minutes. We put our drink orders in, which came out shortly, followed by our entrees. I ordered the baby back ribs, my wife prime rib, eldest daughter bacon wrapped meatloaf, and my youngest daughter the chicken fingers off the kids menu. They brought out bread and calamari (which we also ordered) while we were waiting for our main courses to come out which only took 15 minutes. Unfortunately they thought my eldest daughter also ordered the baby back ribs. I mentioned this to one of the other servers and they replaced the dish within 2 minutes. It was complete with presentation. Very impressive.

    This is not the first time we visited Kincaid's and it won't be the last. The view of the bay is wonderful, with the planes taking off and landing at SFO. The server was very attentive. The food was a bit pricey, but is consistently good. We had the wild salmon, meatloaf, and prime rib. Everything was flavorful, portions were good, and the presentation was excellent.

    We went here to celebrate a family birthday. The view is nice, although the placement of the tables doesn't really take full advantage of it. However, I have to say that the food was a disappointment. Everything on the menu sounded great, although expensive. What we got were plates of over-rich seafood. Each item was either breaded or "pan-seared" in a vat of butter. A side of wild rice was cold, a side of baked sweet potato was swimming in butter, and the Ahi was served without wasbi and soy sauce. The best item was the seafood louie. The best desert was the brule. The crust on the peach cobbler was bordering on stale and over cooked. The service was excellent; too bad the food wasn't as good.

    I took my mom to Kincaid's for her birthday. The server, while attentive to us when he was at the table, was sometimes 'MIA' - didn't see him on the floor and was difficult to get his attention. The mahi mahi was a little overcooked. However, the seafood fettucine was absolutely delicious - there was tons of seafood!!!! Nice touch was the creme brulee that was brought out with a candle in it to celebrate her birthday. Was light and creamy - nice complement to finish the meal.

    The artichoke/crab dip is getting way too expensive. They need to update their salads. Had the seared ahi on wasabi rice and it was very good but for 30 dollars they could have given me more than two chunks that were about an inch and a quarter square and more than 3/4 of a cup of rice. Wine by the glass was very expensive (8.50 for a quarter or third of a glass), while the wine list is very reasonably priced. On a plus note, the crème brule was huge.

    Kincaid's offers some wonderful views of the SF Bay while dining in an open, semi-casual restaurant. The servers were extremely attentive without being disruptive and offered good advice on wine. The food, while a tad expensive, was delicious and the portions were ample. It was our anniversary and only a word to the greeter at the entrance was all it took for Kincaid's to offer us a free creme brûlée. Nice touch!

    The overall quality of the restaurant, the food, the atmosphere, wait staff, the friendly cheerful greeting (by name) is such that this is our (my wife and I) favorite place to take friends for a special night, birthday's, anniversaries, promotions or any other reason we can find to take friends there. But it is also a place where my wife and I go for a special evening, it is romantic, charming and an absolute delight to dine there, just the two of us or with friends.

    I had to invite VIPs and asked the restaurant to reserve the table beside the windows. When we arrived at the restaurant, most of the tabels were already occupied. And the nice table was kept for us. I appreciate this kind of service for the special request from the customer. The one thing I have to mention is that in the past we could order only appetizer first and start enjoying the dinner, and later we could order the main dishes. However we were told that we had to order everything at the same time including main dishes and dessert. This change ordering system was a little uncomfirtable. And it took a longer time than expected when we ask something to the staff.

    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.

    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.
