Kincaid's - Bloomington
Wonderful BrunchWe had the French Toast with Pears and Creme Brule and it was amazing.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBD ClebrtionExcellent food, atmosphere, staff! Made it fun place for a party!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to DineKincaid's is always great. The waiters are wonderful, and the food is always excellent. I have a hard time deciding what to order, but am never disappointed. I love it for brunch, lunch and dinner.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery PleasedWe have been to Kinkaids quite a few times. We are always pleased. We like the service, and the food is very well prepared. We like the special attention given for birthdays and anniversaries. That is a nice idea. The greeters and the service are always cordial, and professional in appearance and attitude. Usually very helpful and questions are answered promptly. It is by some standards pretty pricey, but my opinion is that we get what we pay for each time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionsThis restaurant is always a "special occasion" hot spot. Food and service are always excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMKincaids continues to deliverKincaids continues to deliver excellence in a refined atmosphere. We have been here many times, and we never tire of good service and hearty food. They have a nice birthday special, a huge creme brulee that is done perfectly. We also use the Kincaids rewards program which gives substantial dollar credits. Ramp parking (free) is another big plus.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReview of Kincaid'sWe were promptly seated, and they honored our wishes for a very good table. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient.
It was my husband's 80th birthday, and his request was dinner out at Kincaid's. It isn't very convenient from where we live, but worth the drive. The food was excellent, and of course the complimentary dessert was appreciated.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn to Kincaids after 15 years!Mary and I used to dine at Kincaid's by ourselves, with friends, with clients and with our growing sons. Always loved the food, service, atmosphere, martinis, and wine.
This trip, we found the staff to be wonderful, kudos to Tammi. The birthday card and desert (perfect!) were classy and appreciated! We found that the food was not as great as the 'old days' as the sauces were weak & mildly flavorful, and too small portions. I found the ribeye to be very gristly - even though I like gristle! Sadly, we both found the veggies to be a tad undone - not bad, but not per the old Kincaids. My martini was fabulous - wish I could have had 3 or 4, and the wine was good. We had a great time, but wouldn't spend the money next time.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCHEERS-FINALLY!!!!!Perfect Table and Delicious Food, BUT, Please have the servers BRING the COCKTAILS before going over the long list of the evening Specials....
Thank You!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Celebration Destination!One of the most beautiful dining rooms around - our favorite restaurant - perfect for my birthday! Smoked salmon appetizer was unique and delicious. Halibut special was the best halibut preparation my husband said he'd ever eaten. My go-to dish is lobster tail. Gotta have it. Great wine by the glass selection. Complementary crème brulee was the perfect finishing touch - and I don't like crème brulee! Our server Jay offered to exchange it for another dessert but it was too good to pass on - creamy with no egg taste. Service was outstanding - food was perfectly paced to allow us to have a relaxing dinner. Exceptional evening from start to finish!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy dining at Kincaids.Always enjoy dining at Kincaids. It makes an evening a very special occasion!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe frequent Kincaid's often,We frequent Kincaid's often, and we always can count on good food and great service. I thought the food prices were higher than in the past and the quality of my NY steak was not up to par. My wife loved the grilled prawns and the smashed potatoes; she will order next time if it is on the menu. My other guests enjoyed their food, but I paid the bill!We appreciated the table for 6 out of the main area. All in all we had a great family gathering.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat setting and outstanding foodA "typical" - for Kincaids - lunch. In other words OUTSTANDING. The beautiful glass-enclosed greenhouse-like plant filled setting was very bright with the first sunshine we'd seen in a week, and we noticed one diner happily wearing his sunglasses. Other groups were intentionally seated by staff at booth-shaded tables. The food was perfectly prepared with enough spice twists to keep it interesting without overwhelming the core flavors. We had a tender steak-bites appetizer on a bed of sticky rice with dried pineapple & just a touch of red pepper flakes. The lemon mustard sauce for the steelhead also enhanced the sauteed fresh veggies accompanying it. Our server kept water glasses & the oversized (two-hands needed) coffee cup filled.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHalibut was wonderful. SalmonHalibut was wonderful. Salmon was very good. Walleye tasted fishy - won't order that again.
My mother wears hearing aids and it was a bit too noisy for her to hear us. I did ask for a quiet table but there were five of us so we couldn't fit into a corner where I think it would be quieter.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were out for a 21st BirthdayWe were out for a 21st Birthday dinner, the food and service were great! The guest of honor recieved a complimentary Creme Brulee and the recipe for it. A nice little detail.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was just ok. There wereIt was just ok. There were not a lot of menu choices that appealed to us. The potatoes had way too much garlic on them and I like garlic. Coffee not great.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for our 50thWe were there for our 50th wedding anniversary. My daughter-in-law had a special cake made for us and brought it in the morning. It had to be refrigerated, and they took care of everything. We were even able to get a big round table back away from the crowd. Our waiter was helpful and efficient. Since part of our family came as a surprise from Houston, everyone at Kincaid's helped make it a very enjoyable evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst, I want to start withFirst, I want to start with the positive. The service was outstanding as always but we were disappointed at our latest return to Kincaids ( our special occasion go to spot). I took forever to get our oysters. Our server kept apologizing for the delay. The food was ok at best. The signature peppercorn steak has changed and not for the good. The sauce overwhelmed the halibut. Just not what we have come to expect from one of our favorite places4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch!Took my wife there for our anniversary - 21 years. Used to go religiously each year to celebrate anniversary, but have not been for a couple years. Missed it big time. The service was superb, the food is excellent and I've never had a bad experience there. The bar area has a nice layout (very open and energetic), and the appetizers in the bar are great. My wife had the Filet Mignon and I had the Halibut special - best I've ever had! Kudos!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd visit. First was 2 years2nd visit. First was 2 years ago. We couldn't remember the name this time so we Googled "Minneapolis steak house". As soon as we saw Kincaid's we remembered that it was what we were looking for. Great food, ambiance, service. Will be back again next time I'm in Minneapolis.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb service alive and well!A pleasure. Server was outstanding, pacing courses to match our leisurely evening, maintaining a watchful but not intrusive eye--plus she greeted me by asking if I'd like the cocktail that I had asked about via my OpenTable reservation--so nice to know a restaruant that actually still pays attention to these details. Love the setting, too, beautiful wood and glass, warm/comfortable and exciting at the same time. Crabcakes & garnishes great play of textures/tastes. Spring green salad w little spring-roll-like crunchy batons of blue cheese/walnuts-fantastic. Wine choices by the glass better than most. Prime rib done exactly to order. My client said best creme brulee she had ever had. Nice range of cognac & tawny port options.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunchWent for a birthday brunch. I really appreciate the extras that Kincaid's provides, such as the muffins, the mimosas etc. Service was fantastic. Good kids' meals also.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is known for aThis place is known for a great night out, especially when celebrating. But I wouldn't put all their food at the top, especially given the prices. The price does not match the quality, in my estimation. The bottle of wine we ordered was 400% over the price we usually pay at the store. We do not frequent this place because of the prices. But it is a unique and pretty atmosphere, and the bar can be fun with their appetizers. If you order dessert, be sure to share. They are too big for one person.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFemale bartender very friendly.Female bartender very friendly.
