Kincaid's Bayhouse - Burlingame
Food and Service First RateI absolutely loved this restaurant. The staff with first-rate - top notch and trained in their craft. The food was amazing from start to finish. Views were beautiful. The only thing I would remark on, and it has nothing to do with food or service - is there is a dire need to make the entrance more attractive and welcoming. The entrance was not clearly maked and my friend walked half-way around the other side to find the front door. The parking lot needed re-striping, the sign in front was very worn an weathered, and shrubbery very overgrown. It needs new landscaping and a coat of paint - would make it much more appealing.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable and enjoyable-every time!I've visited Kincaid's many times over the years for business lunches, afternoon working sessions while awaiting flight time at SFO (in the bar area), friend's college graduation, and this time, dinner with family visiting from CT. The service was superb, the food delicious and the visitors (who paid for dinner) "had a blast." Thank you, Kincaid's for being a place we could share family news and poignant memories while enjoying a delicious meal with a spectacular view, extremely well attended by amiable and professional wait staff.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch better than previous visitI was reluctant to book this restaurant because of a mediocre experience last time around. But I was in a hurry and took a chance. Turned out the food and service was much better this time.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBay area stapleA well-oiled machine. Delicious food, excellent service, and based on both, it's always a pleasant surprise to see the check.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day GemWe went here for brunch on Mother's Day. We had a lovely window seat and the chairs were extremely comfortable. We ordered eggs benedict, crab benedict, and the bartlett pear french toast. All were excellent! Our server was very attentive and our experience was superb! This was a Mother's Day gem!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMKincaid's ExperienceThis is the 4th time for me and it has been outstanding each time, food, service and ambiance5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAll round gemFirst time for me, second time for my wife. Can't fault the service, food quality or the ambience. Very pleased.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful!This review is from my last dining experience, a year to the day of when I discovered this gem. I live 3 1/2 hours away and have found excuses to to drag my husband and friends there 5 times over the last year. The service has always been wonderful and the food is great. The view is beautiful My only regret this visit was that I didn't go both nights that I was in town. If you don't want one of the huge meals they offer, go to the bar and have some of their appetizers, they are unusual, tasty and more than enough for a meal. Enjoy this wonderful place, just please leave a table for me.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for GroupsI ususally book this restaurant when I have a visitors from outside US.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat small dishesThree of us split several appitizers and dessert but did not order any entrees.
We were not disappointed by any dish.
The appitizer of 4 small portions of filet mignon were superb, drawing exclamations of joy at first bite. Scallops with ahi tuna topping were taste treats.
Server was helpful and friendly and always brought us clean utensils with each dish.
We made reservations via OpenTable and we found our table already set for three as we stepped in front of parties that were waiting for a table. Very professional compared to places that don't set your table until you are on site. Kudos to management!
This is the first time we didn't order entrees, but it was so successful this time we will do it again.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Hour had wonderful appetizerHappy Hour had wonderful appetizer choices, lunch was fabulous with great view of the water.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful menu.

Our party of four was quickly seated and perusing the many offerings on the menu. Baked brie, clam chowder only whetted our appetites for more excellent offerings. The entrees were presented with flourish and silence fell over the table as we avidly ate the delicious offerings.
A great location for that celebratory or romantic lunch or dinner. Relaxed, comfortable venue with a great view of the bay. The bar itself is spectacular with the wall of liquor with its tantalizing offerings.
Guaranteed to invite many return visits.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful service andAlways wonderful service and delicious food. Very relaxing yet elegant and classy. Love this place.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMKincaid's has a beautifulKincaid's has a beautiful view and a wonderful, minimalist design. The food was a wonderful surprise: with all of the great Asian restaurants and "American" food represented by things like fast food restaurants, it's easy to forget what great American cuisine is like.
Finally, the wait staff was very nice and helpful. Overall, it was a great meal & night.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways friendly greeting.Always friendly greeting. Seated right away.

Food was not very good considering that the prices weren't cheap.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood taste with a view!We dined at 5:30pm ahead of the full house on a Saturday evening. Our waiter "Robert" was very nice and attentive, especially since it was HIS Friday night! He helped us with our selections of appetizers, main course and desserts. Robert made our evening wonderful! The view was nice overlooking the south bay. We were comfortable and protected from the wind and chill.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to KincaidsWe have been going to Kincaids for years.

Definitely a HOT SPOT near h airport.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AM1st Happy Hour Experience @KincaidsI have dined for lunch or dinner many times, but this was my first Happy Hour experience at Kincaid's. It was delightful. A good test of a Great Wait staff is a pleasant smile & attentiveness to clientele at busiest of times. It was certainly BUSY, but received quick service with a smile & friendly demeanor. The happy hour times are fewer than many other establishments, but definitely a terrific overall experience. I have already recommended it to many other friends & associates who also have gone & agreed. This may be the best happy hours in the bay area covering all bases of quality food in great portions, good view & service. A walk along the water after is fun. Once you have been to a happy hour, you will want to come back to dine.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMStopped by for dinner on theStopped by for dinner on the way to SFO. The prime rib was fantastic!!!
