    We used to frequent Kincaids but it had been a while since we were there last. Entering the parking lot there is a security guard with a strobe flashlight that was very particular on where you park. He shined his flashlight in the back of my car (at my kids) to see how many people we brought. He had us park at the red curb and even micromanaged how much we pulled forward all while continually pointing the strobe light up to our eye level. There were plenty of parking spaces we could have used and didn’t need assistance in finding a spot. It was strange and felt pushy but for no reason. Food and service were fine. I had to flag our server down a few times. Once to order drinks when ours were all empty (waters empty too) and once to remind him I asked for cracked pepper and was sitting with my salad for a good 5 min waiting before enjoying. Salad was delicious though. Sides on the steak and seafood dishes we ordered weren’t warm but they replaced them with hot sides with no problems. The security guard then entered the dining room. With strobe light flashlight still on and seemed to deliver food to a table? Maybe his break or family members? I couldn’t tell but that flashlight was shining at diners faces as he walked around. Thought that was strange and probably won’t be back for another long while.

    Staying at the Hilton San Francisco airport hotel, this was the only restaurant in walking distance, but looked interesting from the hotel with a scenic bayfront location. We showed up 10 minutes early for our reservation well dressed with a sports coat after walking about 150 yards in the rain from the hotel and the restaurant looked about half full. The receptionist was moderately unfriendly and told us to take a seat to wait for our appointment. After a few minutes another woman entered indicating she had the same appointment time as we did and was immediately seated. Service was prompt and good. The menu looked good but the food was okay at best. The 12 ounce prime rib was at least 25% solid fat and the herb crusting over seasoned and overpowering. The pork chop was very good and tender. Overall, an okay meal but I don't think I will return on future visits. First impressions make a difference and I suspect the flat and chilly reception at the front desk influenced my meal.

    If you frequently dine there, the menu gets old, but we go there on special occasions, so we never get tired of the same menu. The views, especially if you get a window table, are wonderful. I became a member of Landry's Select Club several years ago. My wife thought it was a waste and a gimmick, but we found that we often get a decent table and occasional great discounts off our check by showing my member card. My wife doesn't think it was a stupid gimmick now. I can't recall ever having a bad dining experience. Always had a great meal with wonderful and caring servers.

    Kincaid’s has been my favorite place to eat to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions. Their Valentines special was exceptional. Food prices has steadily increased which gives me pause to celebrate here less often. If your present more specials like early bird before 6 helps. Thank you and see you soon.

    The food was excellent. My steak was cooked medium rare instead of rare. I asked for water four times before I got it. We never got our bread and our dessert was served halfway through our meal before we were done. The noise level that night was high, because there was a screaming infant, the mother was trying to quiet it down as best as possible but she would walk around the restaurant with the child screaming and it still wasn’t working so that’s why the noise level in the restaurant was really high that night. Kincaids is our special restaurant that we go to for birthdays, anniversaries, and any other special events . Never disappoints even during the pandemic.

    The servers all looked like they didn’t want to be there. Ours was just borderline rude, he even put down what people were ordering. We wanted to eat our dessert with a fork and he did not like that at all. It was just almost weird. The fish and chips they said was good. I had prime rib “medium” that had no pink in it and really no flavor at all. Little crust - and that is in the name…. Potatoes were meh…. It seems very dated for a high end place. Dessert “Molton lava cake” was cold inside so no lava more like pudding. And then you thought we cussed when we asked to split checks. We’re here for work so that would have been nice. Anyway…. Never again, they got me once won’t happen again. Such a disappointment…

    Definitely not the higher end restaurant it used to be. When you first walk in you would expect a warm greeting with a smile but that was lacking. As with every other restaurant, Kinkaids seems to be short staffed. Food and service were good but could be better.

    We went to this place for a special occasion because of large number of glowing reviews. Great view, but ambience lacking, dated and drab, charmless lighting and high noise level. Caesar salad way overdressed. Main courses ordered seafood which was fresh but overall dish ok but flavor not interesting and too heavy for me. Black cod sauce too sweet, but fish was very fresh. Eggnog cheesecake was light and tasty. Service very good.

    Wonderful bar drinks (Manhattans and then fabulous and affordably priced red wine of the day) and my wife loved to find the page on the Bar menu: "Absence of Proof" -- so aptly named, she ordered off it instead of just water. crab-artichoke dip appetizer is enough to draw anybody in to stay a while and munch. Dining room was not as noisy as it sometimes has been.

    Kincaids is our favorite dinner spot when we're starting our travels from SFO. Freshest seafood, more-than-basic salads, excellent wine list. My grilled Mahi was perfect, "torched fig" salad: yum. Outstanding Bay views.

    Over the years I have eaten here when on a trip to San Francisco and staying at a hotel in Burlingame. The food is always excellent, but this time the service was so slow. It took forever to get our salads and soups and had to ask for some bread, as it was not brought out while we were waiting. This was a group of 8 guests and was my recommendation and I felt bad about the service, even though everyone did enjoy the food.

    The food was delicious!! The only thing was I ordered my steak middle well and they brought it more medium, but the waiter took it back with a smile. It's not the cheapest place, but the food is the best I've tasted from a high-end restaurant in a very long time! The waiter Eric was phenomenal!! Hats off to the chef(s) there.

    The New Year's Eve prix fixe dinner menu was fantastic. Highly recommend the lobster bisque and seafood trio! We also ordered the larger crusted prime rib with mashed potatoes, and the blue cheese salad. Also fantastic! It was SO much food, and everything was absolutely delicious. The staff were so accommodating and helpful and polite and professional, and wished us "Happy New Year", it felt like exactly the right place to come for NYE! This is a beautiful venue, and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and well cared for!
