    My husband and I wanted a place close to the Landmark where we were attending a musical event. We also had a very generous gift certificate from our children so decided this was the night. From check in to leaving, the attention of the staff was excellent. Our waiter was very helpful in a very comfortable way. Our food was presented beautifully and cooked exactly as we wanted it and in a timely manner.

    I always look forward to a night at the Ordway, but especially when we have dinner at Kincaid's before the show. I can't wait to go back and try the rest of their new fall specials (paired with squash, sweet potatoes, and roasted beets). The food was exceptional, the service was great, and I'm looking forward to our next dinner at Kincaid's!

    We celebrated our parents' 50th Anniversary and had a wonderful dinner. The prime rib was amazing and done perfectly and the mahi mahi was spectacular. Our server was knowledgeable and very nice, especially to my 5 year old (much appreciated). We had a great evening!

    While in town visiting a college student, his one request for a meal was "a great steak with potatoes!" This was a suggestion we received and although we were dressed a bit too casual for this fine dining experience, we did not feel awkward. The service was great. The cocktail and wine list was bountiful, and each one of our meals from steak to salmon to stuffed chicken was melt-in-your mouth delicious! We will go back and be prepared to dress for it next time!

    Have been dining at Kincaid's for 7 years and always looked forward to it. However, this past week we were rushed out if the more-than-half-empty restaurant after we had finished our meals. "Here's your check," said our server. There was no offer of coffee or a chance to look at a dessert menu. So, we headed down the street to Meritage for dessert and coffee.

    Kincaid's is not a destination restaurant for foodies, but if you are looking for an upscale restaurant with good service, a variety of well-made seafood, beef, chicken and pasta, this is a solid choice. The shrimp cocktail came with two excellent sauces. The baked brie could have used a little more time in the oven - it was barely warm. The garlic and rosemary-butter bread is really good. Mushroom ravioli with short ribs was a little spicier than expected, but rich and tasty. Prime Rib was good, juicy, tasty and delivered at the requested medium-rare, but not special. The wine list is big enough and pretty well chosen, but there are no vintages listed - a major omission on my book.

    Every year, I look forward to coming from Canada and going to St. Paul to dine at Kincaid's, mainly for (what was once) the best prime rib in the Twin Cities. This year, it was absolutely horrible. I don't know what my "prime rib" really was...more like a brisket than prime rib! It will be quite a while before my wife and I go there again.

    Two couples went there this past Monday night. After enjoying a Happy Hour drink first in the bar, we went into the dining room for dinner. We had a nice window table. Two of us ordered the Minday night date night special dinner, which was excellent. We had crab artichoke dip appetizer, one had prime rib and one had beef short ribs, both complete and excellent dinners, and a burnt crime (the best!) for dessert. We also enjoyed the INCLUDED bottle of wine and it was $60 total for the two if us. The other two both had NY strip steaks, which they enjoyed immensely. We will definitely return!

    Kincaids is one of our favorites spots for celebrating a special occasion or after a trip to the theatre. The menu offers an extensive selection of both meat and seafood entrees, presented in a creative manner. The Monday "date night" special represents an incredible bargain. For $30 per person, couples are treated to a shared appetizer (such as artichoke/crab dip,) a generous entree per person (we both enjoyed prime rib, although not required to choose the same entree) a shared dessert, and bottle of red or white wine. Although the "special" is limited to a few specific items, there is sufficient variety to choose from. The quality of food at Kincaids is excellent, all freshly prepared. Service is always efficient and personable.
