We had an early dining reservation. The service was good, truly enjoyed our salad which we split. The toasted quinoa was a great nutty addition. Our entrees were very tasty. The chocolate gateau was wonderful as a tasty option to finish our dining experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at kindred. The ambience is fun with a cool vibe. The food was exceptional. My husband and I both had the duck and we highly recommend it. Our waitress, Trish, was wonderful and we had a great conversation with her about other things to do in the area. We may go back while we’re here for a few days. It was that good.

While having breakfast in Geneva, we asked our waitress for dinner recommendations. Two separate patrons nearby approached us after and highly recommended Kindred Fare. Wow! We were not disappointed. All around-5 stars.

Drove 30 miles to get here on the advice of a friend and we can't wait to go back again! Food was fresh and flavorful. Nice attention to the balance of flavors. At the bar before dinner we had cocktails. That bartender knew what he was doing! If we lived closer I would go there for drinks and appetizers! I had the salmon special and it was one of the best I have ever eaten. Fish perfectly cooked and the snap peas and chimichurri were excellent too. My wife had the chicken and on the advice of one of the other reviewers had the honey sauce on the side. It was too hot for our taste and next time I would just delete it. The chicken without it was great. Also had the beans almandine. Portion was large and I thought expensive, that being said, they were so good I would order them again too. We had come brûlée and coffee...it was a perfect evening!

Creative farm to table fare. We really enjoyed trying new and interesting offerings. Great wine list. Some vegetarian choices, generous offerings. I did find a short black hair in my pizza topping, suggest hair coverings for food prep. It won't stop me from returning though as I would definitely give it another chance.

Food and ambiance were outstanding. From out of town and mighta been a teeny bit skeptical of place being in our hotel parking lot and rocking a 'shopping plaza' storefront. But it really was outstanding food, atmosphere and vibe. Would absolutely return and recommend. Only potential negative was felt a little hurried along by wait staff, and we're not lingerers, but that was definitely overshadowed by overall positive experience and he was absolutely a nice guy and really knowledgeable. Just a little constructive feedback.

Admittedly we were late for our reservation, but we called and had a new time approved by the hostess. We showed up late for the new time as well, but again touched based to make sure it was OK we still came in. When we arrived, a little before 9pm, the restaurant had plenty of availability, and only a few parties remained seated. Our server, a muscular gentleman, really could care less that we were there. It seemed like an inconvenience that we were there, in fact. Food and drink came - drinks better than the food by far which was average to below average at best. Us and a couple other parties were the last in the restaurant along with a decent size bar crowd. As we were finishing up, servers were stacking chairs on tables around us and the remaining guests. We were in and out of there in a little over an hour, right around 10pm. Food, service, rushed feeling, likely will not be returning - Too many better options in such a small town.
