My wife and I were able to
My wife and I were able to go dine here last night around 8pm and we had the opposite experience of Jordan. Kitchens can be like that I guess...
We began with the mole canole which was filled with a spiced braised short rib that had elements of what I can only guess was nutmeg or something, the same spice note you find in pumpkin pie which really made the toasted pumpkin seeds on top jump out and complimente the meat nicely. Presented well, delicious.
I had the lamb shank which was moist and easy to pull off the bone but still had plenty of integrity. The gnocchi and vegetables, which were served around and under the sizable piece of meat, carried a wonderful smokiness present especially in the artichoke hearts.
Our waiter was very pleas

It's a must if you like fine dining
The Mocha Bourbon Pecan Torte was the most amazing dessert we've ever had. (If you like chocolate it's a must). We were so full from the delicious calamari app, and smoked salmon soup du jour, the steak for my husband with delicious fresh herb risotto & my scallops finished elegantly that we took the dessert to go...and didn't realize how good it was til we got home an hour later!

Kinley's: Great Food and Ambience
Great restaurant. The Calamari is our Friday night staple. Desserts are beautiful and amazing -- often works of art. Regular serving staff who are professional and not hovering. The bar is a good place to meet for drinks and appetizers with friends.

This has become a favorite
This has become a favorite for fine dining and special occasions. In addition to excellent seasonal menu offerings, consistent quality and creative presentations, the customer service of the wait-staff is without equal.

The food will NOT disappoint!
We received excellent attention from the moment we arrived through check out. Will definitely be back! The service was very accommodating due to my guest's particular requests.

Solid selections, good variety
I was dining with someone who doesn't frequent sit-down style restaurants so it was a real treat to be able to introduce her to the fabulous lobster ravioli and creme brulee for the first time. I didn't recognize one of the specials as "chicken and waffles" until the waiter brought it to my attention- way to class it up. I ordered a stand by Chef's BLT which was good, the bun was charred more than my taste, but it was still good. The balsamic cheesecake with strawberry compote was a standout that I would recommend to others.

Unfortunately the kitchen
Unfortunately the kitchen was slow the night we were there. The waiters, water boys, etc were all attentive. We will still be back!

Awesome eats and service!
I always enjoy dining at Kinley's, the service is always good and the food is always great! Everyone I've ever brought to Kinley's has enjoyed it too. My husband said "I didn't ever expect food I've that clinic in Anchorage". Good job!
4/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
This my wife and I's second time at Kinley's. We went back because our first experience was so good. We don't have a lot of money so the price point is definately a factor for us and, in turn, we expect a lot out of the food. It did not disappoint. She had the Filet Mignon (again) and I had the Rockfish. Both were fantastic and plenty of food. She had a large mound of potatoes and vegetables with here piece of meat. I had plenty on my plate as well with the fish, vegetables and rice. I started with the squash soup w/ roasted pumpkin seeds (fantastic). I have seen reviews that say the portions are not large enough... those people probably eat too much. I run 30-50 miles a week and consume the calories to match and left very full. Savor it!

Food great, service uneven
The food & wine were excellent. The service was uneven.

Halibut cheeks amazing!
Wonderful food and good service. A friendlier host who sat us in better seating for 2 without a request to be moved would make this exceptional service. There was never a smile from the host...so sad...
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best for Gourmet Food.
The Chef, a James Beard winner prepares outstanding food. We had amazing copper river salmon, NY Strip, Halibut and Tuna. It couldn't have been any better.

The food was terrific! The stuffed chicken was to die for , service was awesome, and
I can't wait to go back!

Kinley's never disappoints
I have been going to Kinley's for about 5 years for special occasion lunches with my favorite coworkers. In that time we have never been disappointed by the service or the food.

The food and service was excellent. Need to keep up on the wine. They only had one bottle of the one we wanted. One bottle of wine for 6 people just doesn't work.

Did a group event at Kinley's and as always, great food and service!!

Simply excellent. Kinley's is a favorite of mine. The food, the service, the atmosphere- if you are looking for a good time, call them.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Kinley's has been impressively thoughtful in their approach to dining. My husband is gluten & dairy free; they have created GF/DF sauces & entrees for anything he prefers- the chefs seem to enjoy the challenge. We greatly appreciate this perspective of service to the customer. So often at other restaurants, my husband's dietary restrictions are seen as a hinderance. At Kinley's, we can enjoy our dining experience & feel appreciated for choosing to be there. Also, when we ordered dessert, they so thoughtfully had "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate around the plate; whether this is for everyone or just us, we felt special. It is details like this that will keep us coming back.

From the appetizers to dessert, it was fantastic. Unique offerings make this restaurant special.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We made a reservation for 7:30 on a Saturday evening and were seated right away. (The restaurant was pretty empty.) The lobster ravioli appetizer was quite good (although borderline rich). I'd order it again. The almond crusted halibut was good; the cherry and apple cider sauce made for an interesting accompaniment. The salmon special was very good and had a nice Southwestern spiced sauce with rice and corn. The chocolate creme brulee was served as a large portion and tasted / looked more like mousse, but it was very good. Would've been nice to see the waiter once between meal service and finishing dinner, but overall service was good. Nice wine list, with something to accompany everything on the menu.

Great Food and Service
Celebrated my girlfriend's birthday here. The food is great and the service is excellent!
Calamari steak, Carnitas, Brisket, and NY Strip were amazing dishes to have eaten!

great lunch spot
This is a great spot for a special lunch. The chef is very creative with his/her sauces. I recently had rockfish tostadas, and every bite was delicious. I finished with a pistachio cheesecake, perhaps the best cheesecake I've ever had. Very light and very unique.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went here for our date night dinner. Brisket and filet were absolutely amazing, as was the wine list! Will come back again!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was very happy with the dinner from the appetizers(bacon wrapped dates and salmon tartare tacos) I like that they offer individual oysters and they are always excellent. We ordered the special and brisket...tasted fabulous and accompanying vegetables were perfect. The pumpkin cheesecake for dessert was heaven. The service was outstanding.

First time, won't be the last!
I had an outstanding first dining experience at Kinley's. The food was truly outstanding, with great colors, flavors and thoughtful preparation. In addition the waitstaff were on the ball and our server was very knowledgeable about the wines and made good recommendations. I am looking forward to going back.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We did not have high expectations when making our reservation; there were openings at every time slot, and it wasn't on the Open Table top 10 list. Well, it should be! The restaurant is quite large, so although there were lots of tables filled, there were still many open. And the food and service were great. The menu was varied, the dishes beautifully presented and the food delicious. The restaurant does not serve cocktails, but the wine and beer lists are fine.
Definitely a keeper!
