    2 times is a trend. At our last 2 visits, some of the entrees in our party were very delayed in being served. At the prior visit, my husband's meal did not arrive until at least 15-20 minutes after my daughter and I finished ours. The waiter and manager were appropriately apologetic so we gave Kincaid's another try. At this most recent visit, 1 entree arrived in a timely manner (~45 min after sitting down, after drinks and appetizers). The other entrees did not arrive until > 30 min after the first entree was served (& the waiter was nonchalant about it). Had to rush to finish meals, no time for dessert. Such a disparity in when the meals are served really dampens the enjoyment of the dinner experience.

    Normally we LOVE Kincaids and go there several times a year especially for celebrations. We live in the area and love being near the water. This time we weren't as impressed with the food - we were treating a friend for his birthday. My husband ordered the steak medium, and it came very rare, almost mooing and he had to send it back. My chicken penne pasta was tasty but by the time I was able to get the server's attention to bring me parmesan it was cold. But it heated well in the microwave for breakfast the next day. Wait staff was friendly and bread fabulous. We'll be back as we are assuming it was just an off night.

    We had an exceptional dining experience at Kincaid's last night for my birthday. Our server, Lupe, made a recommendation for dinner that turned out to be spot on for us. Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer led to sensational rib eye steak and key lime pie for dessert. All in a relaxed, no-hurry atmosphere.

    It's not a restaurant that I would normally go to for dinner, but I had had some of the best crabcakes there on three other luncheons, so I planned to order crabcakes for dinner. I ordered the crabcakes and added a 6 oz. lobster tail. The crabcakes were salty and dry and tasted 'fishy'. Really odd, since the past three times I had ordered them at lunch they were divine. Not sure if it was a bad night, bad crab, a new chef, or new recipe, but I was very disappointed and did not eat them. My lobster tail was a bit chewy (overcooked) and what appeared to be and tasted like season salt on it. This ruined much of the lobster taste which is why you order lobster in the first place. I was disappointed and will probably not go back anytime soon.

    After years of patronizing this restaurant (mostly because of the location), our recent may very well be our last. Food was cold, waiter was totally frazzled (and was very vocal about it!); and for a Sunday brunch - over a holiday weekend - the restaurant wait staff was completely understaffed. No excuses for such an upscale restaurant, where the menu items are anything but inexpensive, to be this badly managed.

    The pier has a new parking system since we last visited where you pay at centrally located machines by estimating how long you'll be there. The restaurant was very crowded and the hostess was very busy but very pleasant and we were seated within 10 minutes of our 5:45 reservation time. I felt the service was slow but the place was crowded but I felt like our waiter forgot about us after the beverages were served. The food was OK. My salmon came with roasted potatoes and veggies. I couldn't find the potatoes because there were only 2 small wedges! They brought a small dish of additional potatoes after I was almost done with the salmon. Our favorite place to eat is Trump in Palos Verdes. The ambiance, noise level and food are 100% better

    We've dined at Kincaids on several occasions. A week ago, the food for brunch/lunch was outstanding. This past weekend, it was very disappointing. Was told the Prime Rib was the best around, so ordered French Dip sandwich. Asked for rare beef & was told that was not possible. It came with well done beef, probably left over from diner. A skimpy sandwich that cost $16.00; could have had a better sandwich for 7.95 at a deli. We also had the Fish & Chips which came looking almost burnt, but soggy & just OK. Also had the Roasted Chicken Dijon which looked OK, but a thin chicken breast for $16.00. The deserts were outstanding. Just wish the food was consistant because we really like Kincaids and the service is always outstanding.

    My wife and I went for dinner here after spending the day at the beach. We made reservations and we're promptly seated when we arrived. We chose to eat on the patio to enjoy the ocean view. Service was great, not overbearing and not where you had to hunt down the server. The drinks we got were well made and our food was excellent. We will definitely be coming back in the future.

Whether it's a business lunch, a Birthday dinner with family or a night out with girlfriends, Kincaid's is the perfect choice. Their menu offers enough variety to satisfy even the pickiest eater and the staff are always pleasant and efficient. As a new mother, I especially appreciate Kincaid's kid-friendliness. It is the ideal place to start teaching my toddler the rules of "fine dining." Thank you!

    We went to kincades for dinner with friends when we we in California for a vacation. The restaurant is difficult to find because it is at the far end of the pier be prepared to get confused on how to get to the correct parking lot on the pier. The overall atmosphere is very touristy, the food wasn't bad but I did think it was a tad on the expesniveling side.

    We have been going to Kincaid's for years, and the food and service have been very good. But on a couple of occasions, the food has been a letdown, and last visit was one of those occasions. Our Open-Face Crab Sandwiches had been left waiting for too long so that they had cooled down, and the final products were too rich on mayonnaise and low on crab meat. There was a mixup between the servers and never got the corn bread; instead, the table next to us got both our and their own servings. Our server was friendly and the location is always spectacular. The new gray paint inside seems to help make the restaurant look and feel with the times. Just wish the food was more consistent.

Our server Leonardo even went out of his way to go to the parking machine and add an extra hour to our parking spot so as not to disrupt our amazing dinner. The food was amazing and perfect portions to leave just enough room for the creme brûlée. I've never had a creme brûlée like this one. Kincaid's is a must!

    We love Kincaids, but not this time. Took a friend to celebrate his birthday. I noted the birthday in the reservation, and I gave the host an order for a brownie sundae dessert, and a description of the birthday boy to whom it should be presented. He later assured me that he had given that order to the waiter. Not only did it never come, the waiter came and asked if we wanted dessert. Thinking he had our order, I said no. Then, he gave the check to the birthday boy. Also, never offer soda refills. And when asked, waiter said the salmon in the prime rib and salmon combo was wild King salmon. It was not! We'll be back but if we get the same waiter we'll refuse the table. And, presented dining cub card ($236 tab) and got no points.

    My prime rib was overcooked and not warm, the veggies were completely under cooked and not warm. The mashed potatoes were good and I had a wonder pea salad to start. Our server was somewhat sufficient however, only passed by very quickly and never gave me enough time to clear my mouth to ask for a second glass of wine. The view, as always, was spectacular but it just wasn't the kind of experience I expected to have when paying that kind of money.

    The menu, location, and high prices, connote a great restaurant. The quality of the food, and the wine list however, say quite another. Steak was decent at best...Super fatty. Veggies were soggy. crab cakes were decent but not a lot of taste. The wine list was straight off of a Walmart or Albertson's shelf. Mashed potatoes were a redeeming dish and the view was nice. But not enough to justify the high prices.
