King's Landing reviews from OpenTable diners
  • I been here a couple of times
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 3/19/2013
    I been here a couple of times but the kitchen had some problems on this visit. We were told after the order that today's pesto sauce was incorrectly made so we would have to accept it as is or try another sauce. When the meal arrived, a steak that was ordered medium rare was well done. The server took the steak back immediately but obviously the rest of the group was half finished with their meals before it returned. When the bill arrived, there were no adjustments so I had to ask why. An appetizer was taken off the bill and we were told the next time we would be given a free glass of wine. It will be awhile before I return.

    While experience was not horrific for our family's occasional dining, I would expect some things would be handled better. Live music was enjoyable and ambient but sometimes noisy. Service was so-so: our waiter was not attentive and we had to remind her on several occasions. Food was good 1 out of 3: out of 3 different dishes we ordered one was really good but 2 were not. Steak ordered well-done came prepared medium inside but burned from outside. Food availability was somewhat limited - they were out of some dressings for salads, and selection of potatoes was restricted. We spent 150 with tips and taxes for dinner of 5 without dessert but with wine - not exclusive but with some expectations of service and food quality.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/9/2013
    We have been here many times the food is very good. They had a great band. Our reservation was at 7:30pm we arrived early and the hostess was very pleasant and was able to seat us early. So they were not over crowded yet our service was one of the worst waitress's we have ever encountered. Once we finally placed our orders and we finally received our food she never once came back to our table to ask how our food was or if we needed anything. Thank goodness there was a guy filling our drinks and asked if we needed anything once he saw us trying to get her attention. Once she dropped our check at the table she stated thank you for our patience??? Like we had a choice?? This will not stop us from going back as we like this place.

    We went on valentine's day. Took 50 minutes for a burger and an appetizer when we told them we only had an hour. Food was overdone and without flavor. I've heard great things but this was definately not their night. Live music was too loud to talk to each other. They were not even packed. I would not recommend for anything beyond bottled drinks.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    I will start by saying that I think i will have to give this restaurant one more try. We went on valentines day and I think things were a little more hectic than they would normally be. We were seated literally one foot away from the speakers set up for the band that performed throughout dinner which certainly took away from the intimiate dinner we had been hoping for. From there, our server was very flustered and forgetful. she had to be asked 3 different times over the course of about 15 minute just to refill a soda. When our food came, long after the food at the next table that was seated well after us, it seemed that it may have been sitting quite a while before being deliverd. The sauce on the Marsala seemed to have congealed.

    Overall it's a good place . I could not substitute a soup for a salad which I thought was odd . The waitress was good but did not know the menu very well, she said it was a new menu. The food was good, not great but good enough to go back for. It would be nice to add more entrees and maybe less sandwichs on the dinner menu

    Great spot, nice food choices for the area, and a very good drink menu, cocktails, wine, and a beer list is in the works. Our server Deedee was great, very attentive, and some very nice holiday music by a local group was an added bonus. Great local find!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/15/2012
    I had the grouper fish and my spouse had the grilled stacked chicken, both were good. The fish was served hot and moist with a light lemon sauce. The service was prompt, attentive and respectful. The wine choices were sufficient. The jazz combo played with a muted horn, and without annoying announcements, permitting my spouse and I to have a conversation in normal speaking voices, while appreciating the music. The decor was warm and comfortable, like a restaurant on Damon, Clark or Lincoln Avenue in town, but without the congestion. Parking was easy. We will be back soon.

    The portioms were generous and the menu was varied. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Thelive music was a welcomed addition, although at times, a bit loud for the size of the room. It was our first visit but I can see us returning again.

    All the people that said this place was fit for a foodie were lying. One person in our group order the "special" the lamb was incredibly dry and tough the mashed potatoes were cold. I had the shrimp risotto. Which came higy recommended on here and by our waitress. I can make a pretty good risotto but I love trying it at restraunts. This risotto had more cheese in than I would put in Mac and cheese (some people maybe that but it was so overpowering it wasn't good). Also there was almost no rice in the dish, at first I thought they forgot it but then the meal had a very very grainy texture too it. I think the rice was just severely over cooked to the point where the rice was falling apart and loosing its integrity. Nice service and location.

    My family and I went here for dinner on November 4th. We waited at our table for over 20 minutes before being acknowledged. After we ordered our food we waited over another hour to be served. I went up the counter to talk with the manager and he said they were busy and seemed not interested in what I had to say. I felt very insulted by this and will never be back here again. After that my server admitted to being new and that she forgot to put the order in.

    I want to note a problem we had with the service. We were waited on quickly. Ordered our drinks and also gave her our order, which we shouldn't have. We waited about :15 for drinks. We received our salads first and had to ask the waitress where our drinks were. She went up to the bar and waited for them. We wanted to have some of our drinks before eating. Then our food came before we finished our salads. By the time we finished the salads the dinner was not very warm. We decided to eat anyway.

Our friends have always commented favorably about this local restaurant. We plan on continuing our visits. Fox Lake needed a restaurant like this.

    Second time at King's Landing. We had a great experience the first time and this time was very good. Apparently the waitress assigned to us was jammed and didn't get to us for a while. Just when I started to get inpatient (probably too early but that is a fault of mine) a waitress came to us, apologized profusely, gave us a free appetizer because of the wait, and took care of us from then on. The manager also came over and apologized -- all very unusual -- in a good way. They obviously care about their service. The food was excellent again. We will keep going back, though I have to try something different next time -- I loved the osso bucco so much that I've gotten it twice.

    My girlfriend and I went there for the first time based upon reviews I saw on here. I had osso bucco and she had one of the specials, which was a beef kebob. I loved mine. I tasted her kebob, which I expected to be tough, but it was very tender. I think they actually have an owner and a chef who are trying to do things right. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable. They had a wine special with a bottle of wine that was pretty good for $15, which is unbelievable. I really enjoyed the whole experience -- more than I expected to. We will go back.

    We went here for Fathers Day and had a great first time experience. My wife deemed this place a "keeper". The only negative was the person assisting our young but very competent waitress with our wine selection. He was very condescending to her and made us somewhat uncomfortable for her. Her service was excellent and we will be back.

    This was my first visit to Kings Landing and it was an exterely pleasent surprise. It was recommended to me by a friend who has being going there for years. What really made the night was the floor show provided by two very accomplished musicians that couldn't have offered better entertainment and created an atmosphere of elegant dining that an ordinary resturaunt could not compete with. Kudos to the band!
