  • A special treat
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    Our experience at Kincaids was outstanding. Their focus on customer service is obvious from the time we checked in until the time we had to leave. This is what you expect for a top level restaurant such as this but often do not receive. We took advantage of the Date Night offering on Monday's that included an appetizer to share, an entrée from a very good list of options, a dessert to share and a bottle of wine to share. All aspects of the meal were outstanding. We will definitely be back for our next special occasion.

    My (grown up) children and I went to celebrate their birthdays. Although we did not mention this, our server made a point to ask us what brought us to the restaurant that evening and later follow-up with a birthday treat - complete with candles! The menu had a wide range of selections, and all three of us greatly enjoyed our meals. The ambiance was nice. Excellent service, not rushed, but attentive.

    My wife and I came to celebrate our anniversary. We picked Kincaid's based on proximity to the Ordway and because their menu had many relatively affordable entree options despite the high end environment. The service was about the best I can remember ever having. My wife and I joked that although we discussed what we were thinking with our waiter, we weren't sure if we had officially ordered. Enough time passed that we figured we must have. We also joked that the place had a bit of an 80s stock market boom vibe, in a good way. There was a good mix of clientele, including just a mom and her kid as well as some guy ordering a rare high-end whiskey, we he was very glad they had. Our waiter observed that we must be celebrating our anniversary, although we didn't broadcast it. My wife and I agree that it was the best creme brulee we'd ever had. I got the pea salad and the meatloaf. My wife got the maytag blue salad and the ravioli with braised rib. We were both satisfied. I would like to come back and try some other menu options, especially just for lunch or something.

    Kincaid's was recommended to us by a couple of foodie friends so we decided to give it a try. The squash soup was amazingly delicious, however the entrees were good at best. I asked for medium well/no pink so she said she was going to write down well done. I guess the chef interpreted well done/"no pink"to mean red/bloody. The wait staff cheerfully brought the steak back and it returned as I ordered. The other entrees - salmon and scallops - were good, but not great. Dessert was missing the pumpkin brittle (which sold me on getting the pumpkin ice cream initially.) We had a nice time and overall, enjoyed the experience. But, for $250, I had an expectation of awesome food, which they did not quite deliver on.

    We ordered the large fillet. It appeared more llike it had been in a steam oven rather than a crisp crust and tender and juicy on the inside. The taste was good and the sauce that came with it was good. It just didn't look that appealing.

    We couldn't have asked for a worse experience at Kincaid's prior to a concert - never, never go there prior to a concert. We had reservations one hour, 45 minutes prior to concert. At one hour, 15 minutes, we still didn't have a table - are they still learning how to manage for things like this? We ordered immediately because of the situation . . . at 20 minutes prior to concert - we had to get up and leave and STILL did not have our food. Most of the front staff indicated that there wasn't anything they could do when asked when we would get a seat - no 'sorry' or anything - just 'it is what it is'. From a positive perspective - there was someone who finally took charge and tried to help - she was awesome - but unfortunately, a failure.

    Kincaid's is one of those constants - you know you'll get great food with great service. Wonderful for special occasions and those pre-show dinners. We liked the new menu, but miss the traditional walleye dinner that has been a favorite of ours for years.

    We had concert tickets for the XEC, and wanted to enjoy a special evening out prior to the performance. Kincaid's definitely delivered. Our table was near the windows where we could see Rice Park and the Landmark Center. The crab cake appetizer was excellent, and the food was superbly cooked (steaks exactly as we ordered them, scallops had a nice sear).

    I had the prime rib and added shrimp. The prime ribs flavor was the best I have had and it was so tender. I have already recommended it to family and friends. The lobster bisque was outstanding my wife and I just loved it. My wife had the banana foster sunday and loved it. I had the pumpkin cheese cake and I loved it.

    We arrived a half an hour early expecting to grab a cocktail in the bar area prior to dining. The bar was packed due to the Wild game. The hostess was happy to seat us early and we were not rushed throughout the evening. The service was pretty standard for upscale dining. I got the filet mignon Kincaid's cut and it was excellent! They were happy to make a special meal for me MIL who wanted something not on the menu. Everyone seemed happy with their food and the experience was very good all in all.

    We have always enjoyed Kincaid's in St. Paul as a dependably delightful place. This time was no exception. In fact, it might have been even better than usual. Our party had four different entres, and all four were excellent. We all raved about our dishes. Our waitress was wonderful, helpful, professional, and yet unobtrusive. She and all the staff were just right. Finally, the setting was exactly what we wanted, comfortable and quiet, so we were able to have wonderful conversation while enjoying good company and great food and drink.

    Was here for restaurant week. At first only regular menu presented which had us worried a bit, but also allowed us to see the great variety Kincaids has. (It's more than just a steakhouse). RW menu easily available upon request. Portions were not downsized due to RW. Clam chowder and kicked up butternut squash soup were excellent. Prime rib was seasoned just right and done just right at medium. Short ribs were ultra tender and good. Chicken Dijon was done perfectly - light breading and good sear on bottom. (That's not a burn as other reviewer complained). Decor was better than Cap Grille. Service was impeccable - expect a very leisurely, old school, pace that allows plenty of conversation. This restaurant is on our "top five" list.

    We had a group of seven, seated at a round table. It was actually possible to communicate with people on the opposite side of the table. The noise level was a healthy moderate, so this could occur. The ambience was great for our special occasion. I suspect that it would be a nice romantic evening setting as well. Our server was excellent, as was the food!

The food was super good - with the exception of my prime rib that I ordered. It was pretty tough. I will say though, the service was impeccable and everything else was awesome.

    My partner and I went for Restaurant Week, which I thought was a great deal ($30 for a 3-course meal) because their menu is a bit on the pricey side. Service was a little slow, but it was busy, the the floor to ceiling windows made for great scenery. They did run out of both the Prime Rib option as well as the Burnt Creme for dessert (on a Tuesday night), which was a bummer, but the other things we got (organic greens salad/chicken dijon for me, butternut squash soup/bacon wrapped meatloaf for him) were so delicious we didn't mind. I thought everything was seasoned perfectly. Since it's a chop house, I bet the Prime Rib was awesome. I'd go back, esp since they always run specials for restaurant week. But go early if you want the steak!

    Our server, Sarah, was very good and pretty efficient. But we think she had too many tables as she and another server were waiting on a large group probably 12-14 people. We think that things got a little hectic, but Sarah did a great job finally getting our dessert as, apparently, someone else took the one for us.
