Great food and atmosphere. Our waitress was really nice and gave excellent recommendations for my dietary restrictions.
Food was tasty, atmosphere was great. Server was rude, didn't even crack a smile, and barely spoke to us throughout our visit. Portions were far too small - we all left hungry!
We loved our meal at Kensington Quarters! Our table ordered a variety of small plates, a pasta, and a few mains and shared and enjoyed every single dish! The only (mild) disappointment was dessert. The selection was small, and the one we ordered to share (chocolate pudding) was fine but not up to the level of the rest of the meal.
Great experience from start to finish. Beer list and cocktails were interesting and good! The service was timely and friendly. The food was fantastic. The prices were reasonable. Will definitely be back.
The KQ was very good. Service was top notch and ambiance is cool. Decent layout, and overall enjoyable.
Unfortunately our meals and coffee were all cold! All of the flavors were great though. Love this place and I’ve never had a bad meal, but today wasn’t the day :(
Very pleasantly surprised! Highly recommended.
Fantastic food, highlighted by a squash salad, beet salad, gnocchi and best in philly burger!!!
Was delicious and service was great.
What a great place. The decor and ambience is really great, welcoming yet trendy. The servers were all extremely friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and products, with good suggestions. The food was spectacular - the MP ribeye was expensive, but completely worth it, cooked perfectly and the lamb sausage was incredible. We would definitely go back.
Service amazing, food amazing. Really good restaurant! Only thing is portions are a bit small.
Fantastic food with innovative flavors and outstanding service! Can’t wait to go back
Im not sure if it was sitting outside that caused the issues or not, but our service was poor. We were never told that there were any specials and came to find out that there was. Also our waitress dissapeared for a while in the middle of our meal. The pasta we ordered actually came out after our other main, which didnt make much sense either, almost as if it was forgotten. Our steak came out cold, and the sides came out after we had already had the steak for about 10 mins. The food was good, but would need to see improvements in service to come back.
Good food, service was good. Expensive, coffee service was abysmal.
Fantastic food, gorgeous patio, lovely wait staff.
Brunch was excellent! 👍
This was our first time at Kensington Quarters and we had been looking forward to it. When we walked in, we were impressed by the friendly vibe, views of the butchers at work in the meat locker, chefs at work in the kitchen, and a local crowd dining amicably. Our table on the first floor was nicely located and we were anticipating a good meal. Unfortunately, all of our meals fell short. First, the charcuterie appetizer was meager, not tasty, and uninspiring. Next, the pasta platter was small with just four tortellinis, a few cut up vegetables, and too much sauce. The hamburgers were tasty, but at $20, not a good value. The potatoes that accompanied the hamburger were the best item in our meal, and were quite delicious. Overall, though, we felt our meals were not a good value; the food was not appetizing, and we wouldn't return.
What a great experience we had! We had listed on our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and they really went out of their way to make my husband feel special! We enjoyed a few appetizers which were all incredible! They were still running the meat and 3 Wednesday special which was so great! My husband got a steak. All of the food was cooked perfectly! The wine was great. The staff could not have been more helpful, pleasant, and kind. We thought this would be too pricy and a special occasion that we'd be unlikely to repeat. After such a great experience I know we will be back!
Interesting new spot in a fun neighborhood. Food is excellent and service is attentive and knowledgeable.
We spent a beautiful fall evening on the garden styled back patio. The staff lighted candled lanterns as the sun set that lent coziness to the surroundings. We arrived just as happy hour was ending, but were offered the opportunity to order from the happy hour menu. We tried the scrapple and fell in love with the salty crunchy savory bites. And all agreed the pate on the charcuterie plate was some of the best we have had. I ordered a burger, my table mates ordered the duck and tile fish respectively. My burger was delicious - juicy and flavorful, but the duck and tile fish entrees were outstanding. No need to get fancy drinks, the house wine is food friendly and reminiscent of something you would be served with your meal in a small European cafe, exceptionally good without pretension. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. Kensington Quarters absolutely deserves its spot in Philly Mag's Top 50 Philly restaurants.
The food was good, but the service was extraordinary. Friendly vibes, great atmosphere, the bartender made me feel very welcome and right at home for Saturday brunch. Definitely a good visit, and will go again next time I am in town.
Great for brunch
Nice beer selection
Great place.....would recommend, especially if you are a meat lover
nice place in fishtown...park on street...good service....good for meateaters which unfortunately I am not....
I could eat the chef's dirty farro for breakfast, lunch and dinner! And that's not even a main course! The duck breast is superb, as is the market-priced ribeye. The sear on the ribeye is amazing. The waitstaff is very attentive and helpful. KQ is my favorite restaurant in the city.
We liked this place a lot; great ambience and good food. But we ordered the tasting menu and didn't feel like it was a great value. If you go, I'd recommend you pick what you'd like from the menu.
Took 40 minutes to have our drinks brought to us. Everyone's good was sooo salty. 3 of us that had a steak or burger was all under cooked! Potato cakes so to speak were flipped over so you couldn't tell they were burnt!! But it was nice of the manager to come out and tell us that every place cooks meat differently and she would do us a do us a favor and shave 10 % off!. Ok! Disappointed and dissatisfied!
The food was delicious! Maybe the best burger I've ever had. The "large" charcuterie plate was not larger. The wine (by the glass) was so so. It took our friend almost 30 minutes to get ONE signature cocktail, and the place wasn't even busy. Said the bartender was "backed up" - it's 1 drink. I would give it another chance because the burger was so good.
We were seated in the garden, it was a beautiful night. Goat cheese tortellini and ham tasting were fantastic, as was the drink list. Kq burger is deserving of its reputation.
Great diverse menu. Food & service was excellent.
Always a great meal there. Best small beer list in the city (Tim’s influence). Nick was great server.
Good food and service.
Great devices. Excellent quality food.
Wow! Amazing experience tonight at Kensington Quarters. Our service was amazing, along with the food (seriously we did not have one bad thing). We did not know that they had a happy hour, and are so happy we stumbled upon this gem. Excellent healthy, but yet still hearty food and proportions. Cocktails on their happy hour were excellent. We also got to see the meat being cut while we were dining - what an awesome experience! Can’t wait to dine here again.
Must have been an off night in the kitchen! Dinner with the wife and kids. Steaks were not cooked to requested temperatures and had to be returned TWICE. Waitress tried to make up for it by offering free desserts. Unfortunately, desserts weren’t very good. Overall dining experience was very disappointing. Will not be returning.
My daughter suggested this place for brunch and I was not disappointed.
I ordered their eggs Benedict that included fresh sliced ham and the best potato I have had in a long time. The eggs were cooked to perfection and hollandaise sauce was delicate and smooth.
The ham was moist, not to salty. Service great and attentive.
I want to go back for dinner the next time I’m in Philadelphia.
Excellent food and great service! Burger was one of the best in philly!
Everything was delicious. The cucumber salad was really good and the dry aged ribeye was incredible. Drinks were good too.
