Service was excellent. Food was very good for the most part. The Filet Mignon steaks were very charred on the outside and not very moist. For the price, all food should be excellent - the steaks should be "melt in your mouth". Side dishes should be served in single servings instead of servings for two or three so you do not have to collaborate as a group on side dishes.

The food was phenomenal: the wild mushroom toast with truffle cream sauce is to die for. The scallops were prepared perfectly. The Chilean Sea-bass itself was a superb piece of fish, however the miso soy sauce seemed to overpower the fish’ natural flavor a bit too much, but was very good regardless. The espresso cheesecake was a fantastic cap to a delightful meal. It’s only the second time I’ve gone, but was even better the second to e around and I will most definitely be going back when I next want a u Iquitos gourmet meal along with the classy ambience.

Very disappointing! The salad was a joke. The steak was in some bizarre sauce that was funky and not described properly. I couldn't identify what it was I was eating. I was a candied walnut that turned into damn near rocks. Very disappointing dining experience. I have been to the lodge many times and love it there so this caught me off guard.

First time, Heidi was amazing!! Only problem I had was with the steak, I ordered a N.Y. cab strip well done, it was awfully day and hard to eat. But everything else was wonderful just wouldn’t go for that steak again.

Two 30-year-olds thought that it was The general lighting was too dim, and in the booth it was nearly in adequate. Loved everything else about the place, the food was spectacular, But my parents as they are a bit older would definitely get flustered trying to read the menu in that lighting.

Overall, our experience was very good. The appetizers and salad were excellent. We felt a little bit rushed because the server kept asking for our order while we were enjoying our wine and appetizers. And, my Medium steak was over cooked -- no pink center, probably closer to well done. The rest of the meal made up for it and we enjoyed our outing.

Like your favorite pair of shoes Ken Stewart’s is comfortable and your don’t want it to change. We ordered heavily off the special’s menu with Burrata cheese, Sashimi and Chilean Seabass. We also had Beef Tartare and the most amazing cashew encrusted chicken breast ever. Fantastic service. I have been coming to the Grille since late 80’s. Very rarely disappointed.

The lunch entrees were good but the potatoes (shoestring fries and sliced potato chips) were too well done and were not edible. Should use thicker potato fries and chips and not overcook them.

This restaurant is by far one of the best places to dine in the Akron area. It was my parents 60th anniversary and my mother just had surgery, so we could not have a large party. When we arrived, they had a fusion in the seat for my mother, superior service, delicious food, fabulous desert for my parents, but the key to such a successful evening was in the details I.e. the cushion for seat, making my parents feel very special, a wait staff that exceeded expectations. My parents left and said they were so grateful they did not have a big party because the intimsteceetting made it one of their best anniversaries. Thank you. Thank you Ken Stewarts!!!

Weve heard about KS for years, and weve been wanting to go. So we finally made it. The server was outstanding. Really knew his stuff. Restaurant was nice. The menu however was extremely limited and way over priced for what you were getting. Weve dined at many high end restaraunts in the area. The money isnt the issue. It's the value. Very high price, small portions, small selection. The food was good of course, but no better than less expensive steak places in the area. For less money i could get the same if not better food, more selection and larger portions. Im glad i got it marked off my list of places to try, but unfortunately i would not go back again, nor would i recommend it. I just felt that i greatly overpaid for an above average meal..
