    We enjoyed our after-movie dinner on Saturday. The restaurant is convenient to the Ward Theaters, and we have enjoyed dining here on many occasions. This dinner was our typical experience of good food and service, with prompt seating for our 6:45 pm reservation. We took advantage of a free garlic shrimp appetizer via their restaurant card special...free membership gets you dining points that can be redeemed for gift cards!

    Celebrated my birthday with an excellent meal (thick, juicy pork chop and opah prepared perfectly); couldn't ask for more, great food, Rea provided terrific service, given special attention when meat was not cooked as requested. Kendra, manager apologized and offered a salad or soup during the wait. Free Bday dessert "Hit the spot!" Mahalo, Kincaid's; We will be back!

    I have had lunch several times at Kincaid's and have always found the food and service to be very good. On this visit I had the steak salad and it was probably one of the best steak salads I have ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection and the greens were fresh. My friend and I ended up talking for 2 hours and the staff continued to refill our tea and water. Very pleasant experience.

    I had not seen my older relatives in 30+ years and wanted to meet, eat and chat in a pleasant setting with great tasting sea food that is always super well prepared. Uncle & aunty had never been to Kincaid's and they had not had Opah before - they loved the food and the eatery, though we had no room for your wonderful desserts, sigh.

    As soon as I got the email giving me money on my card for my birthday I told my husband I wanted to go. The food was great as usual and the waitress terrific. When she found out my birthday was this month and that I would be in California she insisted on bringing me a birthday small creme brûlée. That's why I love Kincaid's. Always treated great and good food as well. Hope all the new building in that area doesn't affect it. It's one of my faves.

    We ate here for Labor Day, I had the ribeye, my wife had the fish special and my son had the prime rib & shrimp. All of us were very happy with the food (as always). Service was also excellent (as always). It is a shame that they will be closing when Ward Warehouse is demolished. I hope they intend to find a new location.

    My friend and I went to Kincaid's for my birthday, and I was happy to catch the happy hour menu. However, the happy hour menu was not available on the dining room side, where our table was reserved, so that was a bit annoying that we had to move to the bar side. Thankfully we could order from the full menu there or I would have been more upset. The happy hour menu had some great drinks, which I got a couple of, and those were great. However, I always feel disappointed that this restaurant does not cater very well to vegetarians, so I find myself always ordering the same salad every time I eat here. It would be nice if they would at least change the menu up a little, because the drinks shouldn't be the best part of the meal.

    Kicaid's, always one of my favorites. My wife and I stop in maybe every other month and always on special occasions. For the past couple years we've did our anniversary there. Recently we did lunch there for our anniversary. As always, it was pleasant, beautiful view, not too crowded, not noisy, and awesome service. I was only disappointed with my appetizer...the lobster bisque. All the previous times we came, this was the highlight and surely keeps us coming back. This time, I was forcing a few spoonfuls down just because I felt bad for throwing it away. My wife still ate hers, but the first thing she said was..."its not like it use to be". I agreed as I pushed the bowl to the side. Hope it gets back to how it was. Great fish!

    I ordered their prime rib medium rare, it came out blood red. Had to send it back. They must have popped it in a microwave, so the end result was a rubbery tasteless blob. Appetizers, soup, desserts were EXCELLENT. Party of 8 were close by which caused the noise level to rise considerably, party of 5 next to us came straight from the beach, hard to enjoy a romantic evening in a sports bar environment. Waiter Josh was FANTASTIC, articulate, caring, gave us space. Was there when we needed something but never intrusive.

It would have been nice to have the Happy Hour apply to cocktails AND those of us who were sitting in the dinning area.

    Two of us were dining on Wed. evening Aug. 20. It was prime rib Wed. The prime rib was not anything to rave about, it was tough and chewy, but it was nice to just be out. What really made the evening was our server, Julie ?(Blond and friendly and perceptive). She really is an excellent server with just enough friendliness and professionalism. We would be back, but maybe not for prime rib. But, must admit that the promotion appeared to be successful as far as getting Oahu out to dine.

    We had a grand meal. Several cocktails, appetizers, soup, dinner, and desert. Cocktails were good, nothing special. Appetizers - Oysters were great, Beef Carpaccio was average Soup - Lobster bisque - very good Dinner - Prime Rib - Horrible, I can't recommend this to anybody. Scallops were good. Salmon special was average. Desert - Burnt cream was so-so. Bread pudding - good Overall, we've never tried Kincaids and gave it a shot. It's not worth the price of admission. Service was very good, BTW. Our server was great and earned a well deserved tip. Unfortunately, you dine for the food and I won't be back.

    Food was tasty. Cooked well. Special requests done. Only problem was waiting a long time to get iced tea refilled. Waiter nice but cup empty for a long time, more than 20 minutes with him busy attending to tables next to us, behind us, in front of us. Would have expected a refill without having to wait or flag someone down. Went to Bubba Gump a recently. Waiter was busy but able to check on us and refill sinks without asking, and even before empty. When you pay more than $2 for cup of 1/2 iced tea, I expect an automatic refill or a whole new cup of tea while I'm eating. Not at end when it's time for the bill.
