Diner Reviews
  • "We ate early on a Saturday evening prior to concert attendance. Chose to eat on the patio, a very lovely outdoor seating area,we began the meal with the crab/artichoke dip - a timeless favorite, once again enjoyed by all. The Seafood Louie Salad was fresh and delicious, a meal that would be ordered again without hesitation. Always enjoyed and never disappointing was the signature salad with blue cheese dressing - delicious once again! The grilled salmon was, well, grilled salmon- not a disappointment, but not impressive either, & slightly overcooked, but we really had no time to send the food back for adjustment. Kincaid's is certainly a place to return for a great food - especially when the weather allows for enjoying the outdoor area"

  • "We're new to the area and received a gift card for Kincaids. Decided to try the Bloomington location since it's closest to us. Biggest disappointment was the location. They are located on the main floor of an office building complex. The feeling was like the restaurant inside of a hotel. Had to hunt to find parking but once inside, the food and service were great. I went cheap with a burger and my wife had fish. Went for the chocolate cake for desert... very good. All in all was a good experience but kind of felt like I was still at work!"

  • "This restaurant sits at the bottom of an office tower in the midst of a complex of such structures. Yet, once inside the work a day world is no more. The service is good, the portions adequate and the ambience superb. The patio is small, but shady and sheltered from the wind."

  • "This restaurant accepts reservations up to 10 PM. However the main kitchen closes before 9, so depending what time you get there, the menu you see may not be accurate. We made reservations on OpenTable for 9:30, only to get there and find a very limited bar menu. Not what was shown for the online menu."

  • "I live in Florida however I've been coming to the twin cities since 1988 on business. I always held my holiday parties for over 10 years at kincaids. You have excellent food and wonderful staff to serve everyone I again a lunch with a new friend from St. Paul who had never been there before. Thank you"

  • "Kincaids is a "go to" destination when we want a quiet dinner in a very pretty setting. Food is always good. Service is usually good, too. Really enjoy underground parking and cleanliness of the restaurant and restroom"

  • "I booked a reservation for a very special luncheon with out of town and aging family. We wanted a nice place where they would be able to be a part of the conversation. Making the reservation and having the confirmation was very comforting because it was a sign Kincaid's was on top of their game. We arrived quiet early for our reservation but were promptly seated at a nice round table so all 9 of us could be a part of the conversation. The food was delicious. There were plenty of offerings on the menu that have already invited me back so I can try them. Our service was absolutely 5-star! Our server was sweet, fun, prompt and courteous. Fabulous experience! Thank you Kincaids!!!"

  • "I ordered the scallops that came with sauteed greens. This may be a new thing, but I found the greens to be tough and hard to chew."

  • "Let me start by saying that the service was very good. Our server was very friendly, efficient and did a nice job. The food on the other hand...meh. I ordered the Lobser Bisque which was outstanding, should have stuck with that and a wedge salad, but I opted for the fish and chips. The fish was overcooked, greasy and sort of rubbery with no flavor. I have had better fish and chips at Culver's. For the price this was very disappointing. The colleague I was dining with stated he felt Kinkaid's is overrated...I disagreed until after our lunch. He was right. I think Kinkaid's is in need of a menu overhaul and remodel."

  • "Kincaids is a classic--steak & chops place but without the '50's feel....great decor; spacious so nice sense of privacy; the prime rib was mouth watering good.(the 4th of July special $20 for prime rib (w/ accompaniments ) & a glass of wine-WOW Great deal...."

  • "Excellent: Mahi-mahi w fresh fruit salsa, generous portion, firm, flavorful, perfectly matched fruity salsa, side well-dressed greens. Key lime pie w lemon sorbet=pucker, sweet, yum. Chalk Hill Chard=superb! Good/bad: Host very friendly, conversational, but seated us next to large table with kids birthday party--in a basically empty restaurant. Crab cakes small, but same flavorful/crispy garnishes of asparagus, tomato, bitter greens. Server not very present - when she was, she was great with recommendations for entrees and liquor, but she wasn't around much on a very low-key evening . . . didn't offer bread, someone else checked by to see how things were, we waited for the check, . . . mixed bag. Up, down, overall=good OK."

  • "We visited on the Saturday following 4th of July and it was pretty quiet, as we expected. We brought another couple with us who had not been to Kincaid's before. We were seated immediately but our waiter did not see us right away, so we chatted. When he did see us he apologized profusely for our wait and then brought us a complimentary hors d'oeuvre to make up for it. We all ordered the prime rib, which was done perfectly and very tasty. I had asked for a window table and we were seated close, but not next to, a window. The view was lovely, with all the pink flowers surrounding the patio area. All in all, a lovely evening with good friends and good food."

  • "We were treated to a friendly reception, and prompt seating. Our waiter appeared in very short time with a description of several dinner items, and a choice of beverage. The fish dinners were excellent. The complementary desert for our anniversary was very nice on the part of Kincaid's."

  • "I met three girlfriends for a birthday celebration. We wanted to go someplace special so we chose Kincaids. One of the women has several food issues and the server went out of her way to insure that the restrictions could be met. At one point the Chef even came to the table to make sure my friend was comfortable with her food selection. We all ended up ordering the Maple Chicken Salad and every one of us raved about it. Two of the women had not been to Kincaids in several years and said they had forgotten how beautiful the restaurant was and how great the food tasted. It was the perfect place for a special celebration."

  • "Took three colleagues for dinner and all enjoyed their meals........except me. I ordered short ribs which were totally bland and tasteless. Also they were out of our first selection from the wine list. Otherwise, very nice service, ambiance and quiet enough for a nice dinner conversation."

  • "This was my first meal @ Kincaid's in over ten years and well worth the wait. Kudos to the staff, who held my reservation for a half hour as my dining companion was running late. Our waiter Rhett found the wine she requested and his meal suggestions were spot on. We were both impressed and look forward to our next experience with you."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "When we want to feel pampered but still relaxed, Kincaids is always our go to. The staff treat us like family, always smiling. Food is fantastic, as always. Strawberry-rhubarb cobbler, exceptional and lighter for dessert than you'd think. All great."

  • "I have never had halibut cheeks............they were very thin, small and tough. the server replaced them with halibut special...which was awesome...."

  • "We love going to Kincaid's for special occasions and birthday celebrations but unfortunately we had a bit of a disappointing experience with the service during our last visit. The food was delicious (as always!!) however we were in a bit of a rush to get to a play downtown and we told this to our waitress and she seemed to understand. Things moved pretty quickly at first but during the meal and thereafter she was nowhere to be found and we had to skip out on dessert and ask another waiter to find our waitress to bring the check. We ended up leaving later than we hoped and were late for the show. Again, the food was amazing but service was not up to par from what we usually experience at Kincaide's."

  • "We have been going to Kincaids for our anniversary almost ever since we moved to MN in 1974. It had become a tradition for us because of the consistently good food, ambiance and service. This year was out 50th anniversary and we hope to celebrate many more at Kincaids. Thank you for a job well done over the years."

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We wanted a great meal to celebrate our anniversary. Unfortunately, Kincaid's (Bloomington location) is no longer great. Prime rib and "Copper River" salmon were slightly below average. The appetizer (toasted Brie) was the lone bright spot. Still exceptional service, and dessert (chocolate cake) was excellent. Overall, not worth $125 or so (before tip, and without a single alcohol beverage). We sat on the patio, which was lovely- except for the "happy hour" music running through the outdoor loudspeakers. It was clearly targeted at a younger audience, with non-stop dance beat. Some light jazz would have been much more appreciated. By us, anyway."

  • "I made a dinner reservation for 5 for 8pm last Thursday for my family and an old friend whom I only see once a year. We arrived at 8:04 to be told that a table was not ready, except a table for 4 on which they could squeeze another chair. I said we would wait. At 8:30 we were told that a table was ready. The food was great, but the service was a little rushed, as it was getting late and our waitress was ready to go home. (I don't blame her). The restaurant is beautiful and great for a quiet dinner or meeting, if you don't mind waiting. The restaurant called me about my experience and I was told me a manager would call to discuss. Never happened."

  • "I go to kin aids a lot and this was a disappointing experience as the prime rib wasn't up to par The waitress was very good and took it off our bill and gave a gift card to come in again They shouldn't serve the meat if it isn't as good as normal"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Have eaten many times at Kincaid's. This time it was disappointing, especially the inattentive service (from Yolanda). A couple came into the restaurant 15 minutes after us and finished 15 minutes before us. An hour & 50 mins. for dinner is much too long. My salmon was very good, but my wife's prime rib was over-cooked. She asked for medium-rare and the server said that this would mean "red." What she got was medium to medium-well -- pink. The Thursday "date night" prix fixe menu was a good value with soup or salad, main course and a dessert to share @ $60 was a good value. The salad option should include a tossed salad without the cheese. Getting a Father's Day "present" of a $15 coupon was very nice."

  • "The great thing about Kincaid's is not only food and atmosphere, the service is the best in class and amiable interaction is genuine! I love dining here as a loyal customer and friend for both personal leisure and critical business events since all of the elements provided here make the statement. Jennifer is great for my late afternoon visit today and all are beyond the expectation! This made my day."
