Kenmore Inn Ratings and Reviews
The food was really great. We had the crab bisque, filet mignon, chocolate strawberries, and tiramisu. Everything was amazing with only one exception, the tiramisu.
Our waitress was perfect, she always showed up at the right moment, but didn’t intrude.
The atmosphere was really beautiful, and quiet even though there is a bar in the next room.
We will visit again.
I made reservations for Valentine’s Day. We were seated at 815pm and bread was brought to the table at 9:00pm. Our meal followed around 930pm. At this point we would have left, but it was Valentine’s Day. We ordered the filet medium. When it arrived it was very well done and hard to chew. They had no steak knives, not that you should need one for a filet, but it honestly was like a chewy roast. The carrots that came with the dish hadn’t been cooked and were very hard. For dessert we ordered the chocolate cake. I promise we are not difficult people, but there is no mistaking Betty Crocker brownie mix. I grew up on the stuff!
The couple beside us had sent their steaks back twice and had caused a bit of a scene. It was Valentine’s Day and we enjoyed our wine so I chose not to complain. I think it’s safe to say the place simply struggles. The meal came to $140 for the two of us. It simply wasn’t even close to that quality. Honestly, it didn’t reach Texas Roadhouse quality.
The house was very pretty and made for a nice atmosphere. I would suggest maybe getting a drink in the bar sometime if you’re visiting, but would say with everything in me, stay away from the restaurant.
Best menu for restaurant week! Everything we ordered was delicious. Steak was perfectly cooked. Pulled pork melt was exceptional! Hope they keep it on the regular menu. And
although the service was slow for the number of guests dining, the wait staff were friendly, familiar with the menu choices, and were helpful with recommendations. We've always enjoyed great food at the Inn, and this most recent visit confirmed its still one of our favorites in Fredericksburg.
We thought we would be sitting in the dining room and specifically asked for a table in the front dining room. The website shows photos of the "dining rooms" but apparently all restaurant dining is in the basement. Not the atmosphere we were looking for. Should be clearer in the description.
Also, service was very slow. 45 mins for an appetizer, another 30 for dinner. There were no other diners in our room so it did not appear they were busy. Had to get up to find our server at one point to get a second glass of wine.
We has been here for a company Christmas party a few weeks earlier and had a very nice impression of the place. Maybe better for events than as a restaurant.
We found this place by searching on Google for a restaurant in Fredericksburg. What a gem we found. Cozy atmosphere, excellent food, exceptional service and a great cocktails. The scallops were huge and cooked to perfection. The men got the short ribs and pasta and loved it too. After our meal, we sat at the bar and tried different cocktails which were all really good. The people here are very friendly. We will definitely come back and also tell our friends.
Loved the setting. The food was subpar though. We had high hopes and were underwhelmed. The watermelon salad looked like it was just thrown on the plate, the gazpacho had very little taste and the filet mignon was overcooked (although it was a nice cut of meat). We didn't get dessert given we weren't impressed with the meal. I would recommend going to the bar or sitting outside for a drink but for the price, there are better tasting restaurants in the area.
My mother, sister, and I were hunting for a quiet but special place to have dinner, since we were only reunited for one night and had a lot of catching up to do. Being last-minute on an extremely busy Saturday night, we went to several restaurants and were turned away. We stumbled across this gem, and what a wonderful experience it was! Sit outside - the atmosphere is quiet, cozy, and charming out there, and the live music can still be enjoyed, without it being too loud for conversation. Would definitely visit here again!
We ate in the courtyard, because the inside dining areas were quite noisy. Glad we did, as the weather was just wonderful and the ambiance delightful. The choices for Restaurant Week were very good-- 4 of us each got a different entrée, and all of them were delicious.
We had a reservation & were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server greeted us & took our drink orders then disappeared. After 5 or 10 minutes, a group of seven arrived & was seated @ a table near us. They placed drink orders & WERE SERVED BEFORE US. We didn't order anything strange (I had the 'special' cocktail & my husband a beer), so this was really frustrating. My husband actually went over to the bar (our server was no where in sight) & we finally got our drinks. Our food order was taken & food was served, but I'm afraid our server wasn't please with us & she didn't apologize for our sitting @ the table drinking water (that our hostess provided) for TWENTY minutes (while the diners near us who arrived & ordered drinks AFTER us enjoyed their cocktails). We have always enjoyed this restaurant, but aren't planning to return.
Went for a wedding anniversary. Ended up being restaurant week. Very disappointed in almost every way. Nice ambiance and outdoor patio. Menu was lackluster and the food subpar, even taking into account restaurant week. Took 20 minutes to get a glass of wine when there were, maybe, 7 other tables. Will not be back
We were greeted at the door and escorted to our table. We enjoyed the tail end of a instrumental quartet. Our drinks came quickly. We had the opportunity to enjoy the restaurant week menu. We thoroughly enjoyed the grilled watermelon, prosciutto, arugula salad. The braised short ribs with green beans and mashed potatoes were fantastic. The trio of desert samples of key lime pie, bread pudding, and white chocolate mouse were perfect. We had attentive service that gave us time to enjoy each course.
The Hostess, waitress, and chef/sous chef were welcoming, friendly, and attentive. The dishes we selected were some of THE BEST dinners we've ever tasted! The overall dining experience made our Anniversary Celebration that much more special. Many thanks to the Kenmore Inn staff!
Easter Sunday brunch with reservations and a moderate crowd, the wait time for the food was unacceptable (1.5 hours). The food ranged from very good to excellent. Of the three desert items offered, two were very good and one was uneatable. The Macaroons were so hard, they could not be cut with a knife .
Overall experience was good. Will return, but will be much more selective with menu selections.
2 of 3 entrees were unsatisfactory. Fried chicken seemed to be dredged in as much salt as flour. Did not eat the coating. Ordered ribeye was well done not medium as requested and portion was small for the price . Salads ordered were the size of side salad and priced at what a full salad would cost at similar restaurants. Kitchen is very slow. More than 30 minutes elapsed between end of first course and serving of second (entrée) course. There are better restaurants within walking distance of this one in F'bg VA.
We dined with two other couples. We arrived early and went to the bar. Very quaint and friendly atmosphere. Specialty drinks were delicious. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. When all arrived we moved to the dining room. Service was exemplary and food wonderful. A salad was forgotten and it was brought out free of charge so our dining experience would be complete. We would highly recommend the Kenmore Inn!
