All good except food wasn’t as good as the other reviewers said
Our party of four opted for the tasting menu... it was fantastic but absolutely more food than four of us could eat so large doggie bags were included.....
Amazing food!!! Drink selection is very one sided (not for the sweeter taste) but was so distracted by food that I didn’t even care!! Highly recommend!
AMAZING! Everything was simply amazing
Service was good. Food was a little too salty in some places, too bland in other places - not very consistent. But I would come again just for the brussel sprouts. Not sure if I would come back, but I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
We had reservations, but it took a minute for us to be seated, so the chef brought out a pastry as an acknowledgement of our patience :)
The food is amazing! I don't know if $20 for a burger, $5 to add bacon and $4.50 for a glass of gingerale is worth it but... if you have money to burn their burger is amazing and would definitely recommend. I did not like that the restaurant canceled my opentable reservation without contacting me or telling me why but when we arrived there was a table available anyway so we got to be seated right away.
Loved absolutely everything!!! Can’t wait to return
Really good food and service, tables are a little close together, which makes the conversation a little difficult. Will definitely come back
Always a solid spot for brunch
While the food is amazing, I was a little disappointed with the charcuterie - 3x3 thin slices (like pepperoni sized) of meats, 3 pickle slices, a smear of mustard, and some bread for $18, with no cheese in sight. Granted, the meats were very tasty, but it was a scant charcuterie for full dinner menu... it seemed like happy hour portions. They have probably the best burger in philly. Great spot and fun energy but you’re better off for happy hour here
This place is a favorite of ours. We always have great food and drinks. Our recent visit, we did the Chef's tasting menu. WOW. One of the very best meals I've ever had. I highly recommend it. Our service was friendly, informed, professional, and appropriately attentive. Evan, as always, made great craft cocktails!!!
The "lump crab" and "grits" were not lump crab or grits. The burger I had was not good. I was very disappointed considering the rating. Then to be approached and followed by a pan handler from the moment we stepped out of the restaurant was just the nail in the coffin so to say.
My husband's my strip was tasty but very fatty. There are many other great restaurants in the area that I would recommend over this one.
Excellent strip steak. Everything was great!
Although we enjoyed the food, it took 30 minutes to come to the table and our server was also extremely slow.
My server was amazing and the bartenders were friendly. However, the portion size of the food was extremely small especially for the prices.
Amazing food! Everything was so tasty. The atmosphere was nice as well.
Had visitors from Germany in town and since the burger was rated within the top 10 burgers on some platform online, we went and loved not only the KQ burger, but also the drinks. Great bartender, made a fantastic Manhattan and got very creative on some non-alcoholic cocktails for the kids. Will be back soon.
🎂 it was a great place for a big group for birthday
Great service, cocktails and atmosphere. I understand the emphasis on meat (which was delicious) but would like a few more fish/vegetarian options.
We enjoyed our meal, servers were attentive, good options even for vegetarians. The cocktail/wine/beer list was good and prices were fair.
Good food and excellent service spoiled by loud music forcing diners into even louder conversations. Overall noise level so excessive that, rather than stay for desert after dinner or more drinks, we had to leave.
Great time. Thanks!
Date night with the wife during the week was a treat! Crowd was very small, easily booked a table. Ambiance and vibes were definitely nice. Appetizers that were recommended by the waitress were tasty. Drinks were very enjoyable as well. I would say the only part of the meal that I wasn't completely satisfied with was the 30 day dry aged ribeye. For $80, I wasn't too impressed. The Mrs. seemed to enjoy it, that's all that matters!
Food and drink were great, but mains did take a long time to come out. Super cool building too!
Excellent food with great service! Loved the wine our waiter selected and loved even more that it was poured from the barrel, reducing packaging and waste. Only complaint was the portions were so small, I left craving a big mac! Our table of six shared three starters, we each had a pasta main and shared two desserts and we were all still hungry!
The service and atmosphere are great and the food was superb. I had the best duck entree of my life, hands down.
The New Years Eve dinner and wine pairing was fantastic!
Wonderful brunch with family. That apple nut whatever bread with the cream on top was out of this world. We had to order a second for the table.
This was unarguably the best dining experience I have had in the city in recent memory. The atmosphere was great, the food was beyond delicious, and our bartender/server/excellent human being, Jason, was unparalleled. The experience would have been great regardless, but his knowledge, shared opinions of the menu, and personality made this more than a five star experience. Cannot wait to return.
Food was cold and under seasoned. Was really disappointed
We’re regulars and always enjoy KQ. It is winter, of course, but it was rather cold in the dining room. Drinks are kind of pricey. Other than that, food and service are always excellent.
It was simply a great experience- great service and awesome food and wine!
Birthday dinner for 6 on a Friday night. Server checked with chef about making a custom meat tasting app, serving up several meats from the butcher family style, in addition to several vegetable based smaller plates(beets with mole, Brussels sprouts, apple/radish salad) that we ordered. This was really nice and set the right mood, allowed good conversation and an experience that was about our group and slower pacing, vs about the restaurant. Brought an outside cake and the plating fee was modest, and the server added candles, nice touch. Overall this is a somewhat pricey establishment given the more casual vibe and casual presentation of the food(presentation only, the flavors and execution were very pleasing and seemed to take some successful risk), but overall delivered good value for money spent.
The KQ burger was saturated in oil and pretty much not eatable. However the skirt steak my father in law got and the Brussel sprouts made up for it, and were both delicious!
I've been to this restaurant before and the food is always super tasted as are the cocktails. I made a reservation for a large group and called ahead since one person in our party was vegan. They noted it in our reservation and mentioned it on the phone when they called to confirm. When we arrived at the restaurant the wait staff worked with my friend and the kitchen to craft a bespoke dish that she loved and when we ordered starters to share the wait staff consulted with her on how and what to modify with the apps to accommodate her. Overall our entire party was super thrilled with their meal and no one felt like they had to compromise!
Food was great! We really enjoyed dinner here
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.
