We have dined at Kindred Fare several times and have never been disappointed. We brought friends this time as we thought they would enjoy it (they did) and we knew the low noise level would allow for easy conversation at the table. The food was excellent; I enjoyed the Rabbit Pot Pie and others enjoyed the Duck Breast and the burger. Service was friendly and attentive. We'll be back again soon.

We made a reservation on Valentine's day, and upon arrival, waited about 15 minutes to be seated. It was disappointing, but the hostess was very kind and accommodating and brought us a complimentary glass of sparkling when we were seated. The server was outstanding--very energetic, fun, and knowledgeable. We were excited to come here and have been meaning to for years. Places that TRULY commit to 'farm to table' are hard to come by, and this is a place that clearly values sourcing local and expressing the region.

The menu design and execution were disappointing, however. I had a panko crusted pork entree that was pretty salty, tough, and dense, without much on the plate to balance it out, and the potatoes and peppers with it just seemed sort of plopped on there in a sort of gravy that just didn't taste very good. The portion size was generous, however. My partner got an 8oz. steak with fries and aoili and the fries were great, but the steak was also sort of tough, and came with a ramekin of sauce that looked and tasted a lot like Heinz 57.

The highlight of the meal was probably the cheese plate we started with. It came with some really nice and fun pickled vegetables, mustard, breads, and surprisingly delicious gluten free crackers.

Outstanding food and service as always. I’ve recommended many times to clients and friends alike and they all agree. We dine out often and make the 1 hr drive without blinking an eye. Staff is wine savvy and eager to learn and share experiences. Highly recommended!!!

We went here for the second time with some family who had not ever eaten here. It was just as good as the first. The menu is short, but everything is delicious and they have something for everyone. My duck breast was absolutely delicious and I even tried some of the other plates on our table as well such as the beet salad, the crabcake, seared scallops, beef carpaccio, and the homemade ragu pasta. Everything was incredible. The drink menu is also quite extensive. I would recommend the cocktails to anyone and if you like wine or liquor, they have everything you could want. The interesting thing about this place is that it fits somewhere in between fancy and casual. There were some college students nearby us who came here for a better dinner than they could get on campus and then there were some ladies who came together for a nice dinner out. It seems you can come here for any occasion. Overall, highly recommend!

The food was excellent. The calamari was nicely cooked and the bread that we ordered was wonderful. I liked that many menu choices could be made gluten-free. However, we wouldn’t mind seeing some pasta choices. The wine list was long, but I thought it was a bit over-priced. The service was very good; we had an affable and well-informed waitress. An enjoyable experience.

Third time I've been here. Food is always fantastic. We had kale salad, roasted beet salad, veggie burger and regular burger along with cheese plate. Our service was not what we've experienced nor would expect at a place like this. The waitress was attentive until we placed our order. She did not circle back to table to see if we needed additional drinks, etc. We watched her talk at cooking counter with other staff for well over 10 minutes. At one point she came around and checked on a table but walked past ours. We would've at least appreciated a check in to see if we needed anything. This won't stop us from going back but reminds us the importance of customer service.

We've been there a few times. The food can be great or not so great. NYE dinner was not good. They ran out of food early and what was served was not very good. It was a disappointment on a special night. I do recommend that everyone tries the restaurant though. We've had enough good meals there to not yet write it off.

The handcrafted cocktails are unique and delicious. The cheese board with homemade crackers and bread are out of this world particularly the beet whole-grain mustard. You can't go wrong here! Our server Jude was excellent and attentive.

One of our favorite food-to-table restaurants. Hostess and servers attentive and friendly. Fun and fantastic drinks. Delicious oysters, creamy lobster bisque and autumn squash soup, perfectly grilled rare beef tenderloin. Try the cornmeal crispy chicken with a southern flair!

We came for the Star Wars themed meal...clever names for pretty ordinary meals. I thought more creativity might have been put into the meal options. Food was good, not outstanding. Atmosphere was wonderful, we were placed in the side room and noise level was perfect for hearing conversations at our table. The bigger room sounded loud from where we were, my husband is bothered by that kind of noise...we commented that we were lucky to be where we were. Our server was great. Overall I would recommend but was a bit underwhelmed with the menu for the themed night.

We much enjoyed our dinner, especially having Vegan/Vegetarian options (more of some would be nice). Really like the dimmed lights instead of the usually harshly lit ambiance of most restaurants who don't "get" atmosphere. One problem was that the noise level is high--especially with "energized" (loud) music -- so would like softer music as the rooms fill up. Thanks.

This place is a favorite! Great food and great service. Quaint and trendy atmosphere. On Mondays they offer a 3 course “ price fix” menu that always has enough choices to satisfy every diner. Also on Mondays they wave the corkage fee when you bring in your own bottle! Don’t want a 3 course..no problem there are plenty of menu choices . The pork belly rice bowl and the fried chicken are my favorites.

Food was good but too heavy. I got the scallop special and didn't particularly think the flavors went well with the scallops. Kind of pricey for how not-Earth-shattering the food was. Very cute place though with good people.
