Steak was so overdone and my wife’s was rare and should have been medium plus. Server heard and confirmed and it was dry and cool when served. We just ate what we could and enjoyed the wine. Should have been better for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner

The service was very good at our table. I was a little disappointed by the calamari/archichoke appetizer - very greasy. The ceasar salad with salmon was good.

My meat was too salty when it was delivered. Desert took so long to wait for that we had to leave without it so we could get to our performance.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable and honest. My meal was especially good, except the vegetables were a little tasteless and chewy. I had the halibut special and it was fabulous. The waiter was personality plus and attentive but not overly attentive. It was a lovely meal.

Not on a holiday where they scale back the menu. We were disappointed in the limited menu for Mother's Day. Lobster Bisque soup was luke warm and did not have any big chuck of lobster in it has it has in the past where they make it at your table. Salad...usually served on a cold plate had just come out of the dishwasher. With the limited menu they were also out of two of the items listed that were items we wished we could have ordered. Instead of getting a free desert for a birthday, we got a certificate to come back for an crab dip appetizer. Service was nothing great...but fine.

Compared to our previous experience this one did not live up to expectations. First off, how did I not notice the outdated and not very nice bathrooms? Not only is it tucked to the side of the kitchen which confuses everyone the first time, but it's small and had people waiting in line with the door open for the beige colored toilets. Secondly, we decided to sit in the lounge as we were able to get a nice booth by the window which is an enjoyable spot. The table top was in such poor shape - we used a plate to cover one area where the laminate was completely chipped away. Just not very elegant at all. Our waitress, while nice, was quite slow on serving us our drinks - slow enough to have my husband's head swiveling around to determine what might be going on. My husband ordered his prime rib medium - there was little to no pink in the cut at all. He also was a little turned off that the dollop of horseradish was sitting on top of a blob of fat. As we walked out, the person at a neighboring table was being served an incredibly better looking slice of prime rib - could see pink, it looked bigger (my husband ordered the largest cut), and the horseradish was not sitting on a blob of fat.

The food and service were wonderful. It was especially nice to be able to dine where the "music" doesn't drown out the conversation! How refreshing! The cocktails are extremely well done. We do wish a good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc would be offered, but then, we have lived in N.Z. and know how delicious these wines can be - at a good price too! I suggest you find a different supplier!
We expect to come - with friends- many times. And we live in Mpls!

Kincaid's is that rare upscale restaurant in which you can actually hear and converse with the people at your table. I hadn't been there for years and was pleasantly surprised. Many tables are separated by partial walls, which also keeps the noise down. My steelhead trout was absolutely delicious, maybe the best I've ever had. Desserts were also great. Our server was polite and attentive. My only disappointment was the vegetables. A pea puree was runny and didn't taste fresh. A slaw with jicama and red peppers turned out to be soggy. Had the vegetables been as superb as the trout, I would have given an outstanding rating.

It is a great place for a nice upscale dinner. It was very busy and our server was apologetic for not getting to our table in a timely manner. She had another server get our drink order and because it took a while to deliver them, she comped our drinks. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There are only 3 tables for 4 by the window so chances of getting one are very slim. I had requested one and we were seated "close" to the window which was disappointing. All in all though, a very nice place with great servers and outstanding food!

The service was excellent, the drinks were good, the salad was fine but the steak and mash potatoes were sub par.

I chose the New York strip and found it to be a bit hard to chew. It reminded me of something I might get at an Outback Steakhouse or Texas Roadhouse type restaurant.

The mash potatoes were very bland.

Food was great and our server (Rick) was fantastic! I asked him how he recommended the rack of lamb and he took the time to explain what the restaurants medium rare was. He said that the medium rare plus maybe better, it was perfect. The hostess on the other hand was rude, I mentioned that we had reserved a table for 7:45, she made us wait another 15-20 minutes to be seated. What is the point of a reservation (wasn't that busy) if we can't be seated near our reservation time?
