    I took my husband to Kincaid's for his birthday. We ordered a drink and a glass of wine before dinner. They have a good bourbon selection and a very nice wine list. Our server, Jay, was amazing. He recommended food choices based on our conversation and was spot on! The special that night was asiago halibut over smashed potatoes and asparagus that was absolutely terrific. I will definitely go back.

    Everything was wonderful, friendly service, Best steak I ever had. It was perfect fit for our anniversary date. Thank you for making this special. The only bad thing was the use of garlic was a little over powering, not during the meal, but 3 hours later it was still with us and in a way that a simple breath mint could not fix. I think it may of been the garlic butter on the bread. but not sure. We will be back.

    Comfortable table for five. Service and food were excellent as usual. My wife's father was celebrating his 92nd birthday and Kincaids has become a tradition for our birthday and anniversary celebrations. The staff greeted us upon arrival and immediately wished my father-in-law a happy birthday. Nice touch!

    The six of us enjoyed our experience at Kincaid's! The service was perfect, we always had everything we wanted, yet she was very subtle. The meal itself was excellent and timed perfectly. We also appreciated the ramp parking on that rainy evening. This is one of our go to places in the Bloomington area and we look forward to next time!

    Kincaids in Bloomington always provides a reliable business lunch experience. I recommend going a little early 11:30AM before the big crowds show up. Easy parking is a plus as is the location close to Hwy 100 and 494.

    We had a reservation for 4 at 7:00 but our table was not ready when we arrived. When we were finally seated, we discovered little shards of glass all over the table. When we were finally able to our waiter's attention, it was cleaned up promptly. Service was pretty slow overall. It seemed they were understaffed on the holiday weekend. The food was very good. We will return.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and we couldn't have chosen a better spot. The menu had wonderful choices of food and beverages. Our server was there when we needed her but did not hang around when not needed. Our dinners were generous and delicious. At the end of our meal we were given a complementary crème brûléet, which was lovely. We look forward to dining at Kincaid's again very soon.

    Great solid experience all around. Inventive dishes (pesto crusted walleye with heirloom tomato risotto, crab cakes with Asian style garnishes) well executed. Attentive, interactive and very helpful service, our server was willing to go above and beyond. Setting is relaxing and beautiful. Truly the only complaint was the small size of the walleye portion - but the wonderful flavors of the accompaniments on the plate made up for that.

    We would never ever come back, we drove 500 miles because it was highly recommended, and we ended up paying for our 2 drinks, and walked across the street to a place called, PARMA'S. They took us in, and they were packed, and we were immediately waited on, we had a great time, and would go back to PARMA'S IN A HEARTBEAT. not ever to a broken heart as presented by Kincaid's. Never! Keith P. Besch and Erin, my dear Sweetheart of 10 years, we did our Romantic Evening across the street.. Thanks for listening, KB & E

    We come here on special occasions. This time for my wife's birthday. She always gets the Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Braised Short Ribs. Delicious!!! I have had their Short Ribs which are excellent. This time I ordered the pork chop with garlic mashed potatoes. Well seasoned and prepared. The server let us sample a couple Champaign's before purchasing which was very nice. Their dirty martini's are excellent too.

    Lunch was solid. If I had a recommendation it would be for a couple options that are less expensive, in case someone wants to have a more upscale lunch without spending a lot of money. I didn't think we splurged, and after tip I had spent nearly $50 (for 2). Getting out at $30 didn't seem feasible. But, still, a good meal.

    We took our grand daughter to dinner on Thursday and had a very good meal and terrific service. We had the prime rib on the date night menu ($60) and our grand daughter had a kid's meal consisting of oranges and strawberries, pasta with red sauce, lemonade, and a hot fudge sunday ($9). The server was super helpful and very kind to our grand daughter. Will definitely be back.

    We celebrated my sisters' birthday on "date night" and had a fabulous meal and experience from beginning to end. The chef came out and spoke with us and recommended a couple items for us. Our server, Sarah, was a delight with a great sense of humor. The evening was perfect, the scenery is perfect, and the host and staff are excellent. I would come there again and again. Thank you.

    My two friends and I came here on a whim and enjoyed ourselves very much. They were from Baltimore, staying nearby; I'm from St. Paul. I've eaten at other Kincaid restaurants so knew the food would be good. We really liked the ambiance and our waiter (Carl) was so friendly, thoughtful and helpful and made us very comfortable. I don't know about outdoor dining since we didn't do that; or the late-night or bar scene stuff since I'm past that age. I'd definitely come for a special occasion.

    I ordered a rare hamburger, it was seared and then baked. It was as any well done piece of meat with the baking of it. I ate little of it. I ordered short ribs for my wife, and this was like pot roast. It was disappointing. We waited at least 20 minutes for the check when we were done. It certainly looked like the restaurant was understaffed at 6:30 pm.

    Made reservation on Monday for Thursday 6:15 pm requested a quiet table for dinner meeting. seated where there was a view of kitchen entrance with servers constantly walking by our table and in and out of kitchen. Our service professional was pleasant but on the slow side (restaurant quite busy) Considered the food average. My past experience at Kincaid's have been positive but this was several years past and I realize that restaurants do change over time.

    This one went really lousy. An extra loud group of the Bloomington Chamber of Commerce made plenty of noise and ruined the ambience. The food was prepared incorrectly and turned a potentially romantic evening into a major flop. It will be a long time before returning to Kincaids; and we certainly cannot recommend the food to friends and business acquaintances. We've seen it turn from good service and great food, to now just great glitz. We paid our $100+ for a pretty poor supper. A recent night out a the nearby Good Earth far exceeded Kincaid's service, quality, and price.

    I can always count on Kincaids (& have for many years). Tucked into lower ground level of office complex, it doesn't sound like much. But the ambience is romantic, warm and welcoming....The menu features classic meat & seafood dishes...I usually go for the salmon but the prime rib is delectable. Prices are reasonable and fair. choclabannie 8/14

    As always, the food was perfectly prepared and presented. Everything from the maytag blue cheese salad to the fresh halibut right through the bread pudding was delicious. The srrvice was attentive, but not to the point of annoyance. This has been our family's favorite restaurant for years. We had moved from the Twin Cities, but are happy Kinkaids has remained & continues to deliver great food & service.

    Interesting location- on the ground level of a bldg in a large office complex. Even with GPS, I drove by it twice. Free parking in the attached garage, though (on a Saturday). Wanted to give it a try based on internet recs. Nice ambience, elegant but laid back, casual attire, comfortable noise level. Was seated by a window with a view of the garden. Service was courteous , not overbearing. Appetizer crab cakes were good, although they appeared premade. Had the wild rice soup which was also tasty, although somewhat salty for me. Reasonable beer selection. Main course Seafood Louie salad, was good, but not memorable. The choice of greens was a little uninspired. Overall a decent meal. Would be willing to return to try a different dish.

    I've dined at both the Bloomington and St Paul Kinkaids and had an especially great server this time at Bloomington. He knew the menu and was just that perfect amount of attentive--not too noticeable but quietly anticipating what you would like. Good setting. The food is very expensive and I'm not sure it's quite that good.
