  • Disappointing

    Took another couple for his birthday. We were seated in the main dining room where because of the live music and the ceiling design, it was too loud to talk. Asked twice for the volume to be reduced and then they moved us to another room where it was quiet. But food was disappointing. Two of the steaks were significantly overcooked and one was under cooked-rare instead of medium. Sides were under salted. But we didn't send anything back because we were tired and ready to go. Our server, Christine, was very nice and attentive.

    This was our second visit to Kirby's. Still not impressed. The steak is good. Mashed potatoes are wonderful! Service was lacking. First course of Poblano chicken soup was good. My wifes house salad had big 3 chunks of rusty stem lettuce on it. Very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber. Plus the first course took forever. Water glass seemed to never get refilled. Cream Brule was good. The coffee was hot this time, compared to the last visit but a refill would have been nice. When it was time to pay, the book sat what felt like forever to get paid out. My card was clearly sticking out of the book. Kirby's isn't cheap and I don't mind spending the money, but not for that kind of experience.

    Be sure to try Happy Hour -- the drink prices are extremely reasonable and the appetizer selections are both unique and very fairly priced. The shrimp cocktail, especially, is a treat. Plus, the bartender makes a perfect martini.

    The restaurant was wonderful I will be going back again. The. Best steak I have ever had. It was my first time going but I think it was a excellent choice I took my best friend out for her birthday at the end the brought out a cake and a card for her. She loved it. Our waiter was the best he explained everything and made us feel at home whatever we needed he was right there.

    Great food, service, and experience! We went to Kirby's to celebrate our son's 16th birthday. The filet mignon was outstanding as well as the service. The waiter was great - good suggestions, outgoing personlaity, and timely. Start to finish everything was top notch.

    We've been here before and it was great. Went back for our anniversary. the chef had trouble cooking a med rare steak, sent it back twice and it still wasn't cooked correctly. ate it anyway because our waiter was busy with a 20 person table that they sat us in front of even though we told them it was our anniversary. I had to flag down another waiter to help us. the fillet was very tough for a high end steak place. there are many other high end steak places here, we wont ever go back to kirbys after that experience.

    Steaks were cooked perfectly, sauces and dressings were great, and sides selected were fresh and flavorful. Only drawback was that we were too full to try dessert! Get the house garlic dressing if you get a salad!

    The best thing about my meal was the jalapeno macaroni and cheese. Filet medallions lacked seasoning (no salt), duck confit was not crisp or flavorful at all (again lacking flavor) and the honey glaze was simply terrible. I was very disappointed in my meal overall. I expected a steakhouse to nail the steak. My friend seemed to enjoy her shrimp and angel hair pasta. I doubt I'll return for steak.

    Had a great business dinner with our financial advisor. Food was excellent and service was very good as well. Wine list was very nice but since I was the only one drinking wine didn't have a chance to sample much of it. Noise level was a little high for a business meeting but acceptable. Overall, a very nice dinner and evening.

    I would say that our wait staff was the best I have ever had. We were lucky enough to have Ellen as our main waitress, but she had a couple of other helpers as well. They were very informative, and Knowledgeable on all the food choices. They also had a great sense of humor, and our guests had a wonderful time!

    Tonight my wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at our favorite restaurant, Kirby's. This visit was by far the greatest and most wonderful experience we have had at Kirby's, each visit has always been great but tonight was absolutely amazing. Robyn, the chefs and the great waitstaff made this occasion almost as delicious and memorable as our actual wedding. This was a truly great experience, we thank the staff at Kirby's and we have found our home away from home and we will never go anywhere else for our special occasions.

    Although the food was delicious and the service was great, there was nothing about this place that sets it apart from the others. You're buying overpriced food and drinks, sitting at a four top, in an average looking restaurant. The restaurant lacked any unique character, but the food and service was very good....expensive, but good.

  • Going out of business?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    It was 100+ degrees outside. Asked for sparkling water. They don't have any sparkling water. Ordered a Bloody Mary and it was too hot/spicy to drink. They brought another with just tomato juice, pretty lame. Ordered their signature dish with beefsteak tomatoes. They don't have any beefsteak tomatoes today. Ordered a salad instead. Got a tiny handful of iceberg lettuce with brown edges and ONE measly cherry tomato cut into four pieces. No other garnish. Nasty! Ordered a cappuccino. Guess what? Machine is broken and will be sometime fixed next week. My guess if you don't got the $$ for water and tomatoes or cash to fix the coffee machine - you are going out of business. Nuff said.

The food was fantastic, I had Sea Bass and my father had a NY Strip, cooked perfectly!! At the end of out meal, it was just my father and I, Billy brought a fabulous chocolate, cinnamon cake w/ice cream topped w/a chocolate ribbon w/Happy Birthday written on it as well as a glass of port and dessert wine for my father. It was vey thoughtful and made the occasion!! I would highly recommend Kirby's.

Greeted in the dining room by Billly. Very knowledgable and patient with us on our first time. Tempted to try some of the specials but stuck with the Culinaria menu.

    Kirby's should just stay out of Restaurant Week. We had to ask for that menu, then the waiter steered us away from the better entree. The floor manager then insulted me when I said the tenderloin on a skewer was too tough to eat, perhaps I was trying to cut through the skewer! They did comp my meal, but their offerings did not compare with the other upscale restaurants we visited during Restaurant Week.

    Our service in the dining room was very good, but in the bar was not good, too many people not enough staff, also, very noisy. Happy hour wine choices was basically one white one red. The happy hour menu looked interesting, but due to noise level not sure we would go back and spend much time in the bar.

    We went to Kirby's this time as part of Restaurant Week and chose from the offered menu. Some restaurants can disappoint in their menu selection for this week but not Kirby's - it was wonderful. Food, service and ambience were nothing less than excellent. We both had the beef tenderloin spring rolls with spicy sauce and it was so tasty. My New York Strip - medium rare - was just that, with never a hint of being over or undercooked. Desserts were innovative, right sized and truly just right to end the meal with. This was a great dining experience.
