    As usual, a great experience at Kincaid's. A quiet night, and service was even more prompt and attentive than usual. Over time we've had many of the fish specials and my favorite, prime rib, but please save room for the key lime pie. By far the best I've had anywhere.

    Kincaids used to be very good, with very good service and food. Now it's mediocre food with immature and inexperienced staff. I made a reservation for an outdoor table. We were led through the bar to the patio by the overtly complimenting bar waitress, shown options of a table facing the parking lot or another table which could be arranged to face the building wall! Not being pleased with either option, we requested a table inside and was led through the empty restaurant by the bar waitress who kept trying to get us to sit in her section. After much insisting on our part we were able to secure a window table in the dining room. The food was very salty and oily. Drinks were brought to the table after the entree was finished. Disappointing!

    Kincaid's is conveniently located at the second level parking at the Redondo Beach pier. The price commanded for the food yield above-average tasting dishes for the most part. My almond crusted scallops were delicious, but the scallops were ridiculously small - it would've been perfect had big plump diver's scallops been used to prepare the dish. The wife's prime rib was cooked to perfection, but the meat was a bit rougher than we're accustomed to for a prime rib. We still had a great time. What really shined at Kincaid's were the cocktail drinks and service. Our server Leo took fantastic care of us. We would definitely return.

    The only problem I had is that I wanted to make reservations for the Lobster Festival. So I called Kincaids in Redondo Beach and was tole I had to do this online, which I did. I called Kincaids to make sure this worked out OK, They told me the reservations I want should have been for an affiliated restaurant, but were given to us for Kincaids. So I kept them not knowing what to do. We never got our lobster dinner as indicated in your email.

    Brought my friend there for his Birthday. His food was good he had the Salmon and Prime Rib. I ordered the 48.95 Special Trio. The steak was ok, only 2 tiny prawns the lobster tail was terrible. There was literally 3 small pieces of lobster, it was all dried out. I was quite disappointed for the price. New Chef!!

    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.
