KC American Bistro
The character of each dish represents the history, culture, and ethnicities of a particular region: the Heartland, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Pacific.
Tracing his culinary philosophy to training at the Culinary Institute of America and work with Roy Yamaguchi and Larry Forgione, Keith delivers a unique and memorable dining experience every night.
The food was excellent, service poor our dinner took over 45 minutes to get served. Patrons that entered the restaurant after us was served before us. We don’t know if the kitchen was at fault or the waiter. We were given a free dessert for the problems.
We used to love KC American Bistro, gave a 5 stars rating and take all our friends to there. Saturday night we went with another couple at 5:30. Only about half dozen tables there. We ordered almost immediately after we sat down because we're familiar with the menu. Got our drinks but no appetizer or salad until we asked the hostess around 6:20. Our entrees didn't show up until 6:45 - 75 minutes wait at a not so busy restaurant!
No one refilled our water. We had to ask and get water refilled only ONE time. When the glasses were empty again, no one came. When we asked to have more bread, our server asked us how many of us wanted more. We have no idea they started "ration" bread, it never happened before. Bread came cold. Again, never happened before.
The table behind us came after us but ate and left just when we got our entrees. KC, the chef/owner, usually walks around to checks every table. I guess he's too busy at their second location and no one else asked about how's our food or services. Frankly, even their signature Grouper was good but not "excellent" like use to.
It's a shame when a restaurant expanded it's business, it's quality of the original one went down. We're not sure we'll go back because we lost our confidence.
Food is good, accompaniments very weak.
Food was a little better than avg but there are a lot of places for 35 to 40 a plate better in Naples. Grouper was like a fancy fried piece with little to no sides.
The Beet salad was spectacular also the Porkchop was perfect!
KC American Bistro is one of Naples finest restaurants . The menu is delightful and any dish you choose will be delicious. My favorite dish is the pumpkin encrusted salmon. Their dick is yummy too, and their salads are beyond outstanding. The service is excellent and the decor is lovely.
KC's serves the best quality cuisine, professionally prepared and served. Our group enjoyed , the romaine BLT, the apple and blue cheese salad.....the crab souffle , the lobster sliders,....the scallop entree ( read absolutely delicious every bite) and the ahi tuna.....all fantastic and greatly enjoyed.
Great food, professional service and a discount coupon. What more can you say but a very pleasant evening. KC’s is one of our favorite places to dine.
Love the medgool (so?) dates appetizer. Food is good quality for a fair price.
This was my first visit after receiving 2 recommendations. The food was outstanding as was the presentation!
I will be returning.
Food was delicious - especially the BLT salad. Would definitely come back.
Twice in less than a week. A service at KC's that was not up to its usual standards. Ahi Tuna was a very thin piece of fish which couldn't be cooked rare under any circumstance (can't blame the kitchen for being given a piece of fish that wasn't useful), Short Rib was dry ... can blame the kitchen. Perhaps we should just avoid KC during Naples Restaurant Week.
There were 3 of us. We each had the 3 course special. As we placed our orders, we learned the chef had added the ocean scallops and pork chop to the special menu. Two of us had the scallops; our other friend ordered the pork chops. Everything was delicious. We are quite fortunate to have this consistently excellent restaurant in naples.
What a great place, food was fantastic. Joined them for the food week here in Naples. 3 courses for $36, what a great deal, while other places give smaller potions for the even KC American Bistro gave plenty of food. Very happy with our meals and will definitely go back again. Thank you.
The grouper entree was very good. The watermelon salad is so refreshing.
We went there during restaurant week. Food and service was outstanding thanks to our waitress Victoria. We would definetly go back again. Menu is limited but from appetizer to dessert was awesome! Try the salmon or swordfish..delicious
Usually love KC's. The last visit however, the food (1 shortrib / 1 duck) was overcooked and dry. I think the server forgot our order and left it under the heat lamps too long. One bad day. But we'll go back.
Good every time. Never disappointed.
Food was excellent! I do wish the chef would vary his menu perhaps with some specials.
Always outstanding. Worth the trip for us to come up from Lely
We have been dining at KC’s since he originally opened restaurant and have never had a bad meal. I always order the grouper with ritz crackers but the other night it was awful. The breading was burnt and looked like skin on the fish. It wasn’t even edible we had a waiter that was not very attentive. My son also asked for a patron Margarita and watched the water use another tequila. We sent it back. Just very disappointed!!
Excellent food and service. Wine pour could be more generous for the price. Beautiful food presentation. Will go back.
The menu on Open Table is not the one in the restaurant. We were going to order the blackened red fish and the mani mahi. Neither was on the menu. Open Table menu offered a split of Prosecco for $9. They did not have a split so brought two very small bottles of Prosecco and charged $18. The food itself was quite good along with the 2 for 1.
Over-priced. No quality or quantity. 2 for 1 is a big gimmick.
You can not go wrong on their summer bogo deal. We've been there many times and never disappointed about their food and services. The best Grouper we've ever have and always enjoy their short ribs. We tried very hard but the warm bread just too good to not to order the refill. One of our favorite restaurant in Naples.
Drinks with friends always enjoyable here. Food, service, and atmosphere outstanding.
One of our favorite “go to’s” whether it is for a dinner of apps and wine at the bar or, to entertain guests and friends. The service is a delight; we are never rushed and always feel that we are as important as any other table. The food is unique and delicious and, the kitchen is very accommodating. I dislike most vegetables in general and substituting a side with another that is already on the menu is never a problem. Definitely worth a visit (or 2, or 3, or more).
Great food , highest quality,service was perfect. Mushroom soup not to be missed.
Going again in a week. You will be a happy diner.
Meal was good,nice presentation, well prepared. Too expensive but worth it if you use a summer coupon.
Food is usually good, but the menu hasn’t changed for a long time. Needs new dishes.
The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Will definitely go back!!
We had a wonderful server, great food, some of the best in Naples! Highly recommend!
Thanks, we enjoyed ourselves with the dinner
Excellent food quality, service and atmosphere. Fair price for value received. Great attention to detail.
Our first visit but not our last. The menu emphasizes fresh seafood and we were very pleased with both the presentation and taste.
It is really good food. It is expensive but there is a coupon in the paper for buy 1 entree get one free.
Sometimes the coupon is buy 1 entree get 1 half off. It is worth it.
A great restaurant, unfortunately the parking at the plaza is a nightmare, the reason why we only go to KC before and after Season
Service and food both perfect! Only suggestion would be bigger selection of red wines. Not many that aren’t quite expensive!!
KC AMERICAN Bistro is always excellent! We were there a few nights ago with friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our delicious dinners. My favorite dish there is the pumpkin seed encrusted salmon. My friend had scallops which were yummy and her husband ordered the short ribs which he said were delish.The service is very attentive and we think the decor is lovely.
