We requested outdoor seating and were granted the request. The measures taken to ensure our safety were followed and enforced by all the employees (mask, distancing and proper sanitization). This was much appreciated to see. We've always enjoyed the food and ambiance at King+Duke but had not been since the pandemic. We felt safe there and look forward to our next visit.

King & Duke was good. My one complaint would be our table location. They put us in a really awkward spot at the front of the restaurant where there was way too much traffic to place a table.

Frustrating for sure

There was hardly ANY items on the menu that was vegetarian friendly. Even the salads and side dishes that are normally vegetarian, had meat. Value for the money was pitiful.

We love King and Duke and have been many times. The menu had been significantly reduced, and the only things left were fairly unimaginative, bare bones entrees... pretty disappointed, and quite different from our past experiences there. Food was good, but didn’t leave me yearning to come back as I had in the past. Probably will consider another place for our next big occasion.

Service was good as always, and still love sitting outside on the patio.

From the drinks, to the appetizers, to the meal, to the service, our group of 9 all had a great time and likely had tried more than half the items on the menu, which were all spot on. Our servers also did a great job, all around good time.

We have been going to K & D since it opened and has always been consistent. I think the food quality was definitely nothing like before. They need to go back to their old menu. Also we were excited to sit outside on the patio, unfortunately with construction we had a view of a bulldozer. It would of been nice if they had mentioned it when they confirmed the reservation.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and we are so happy we went to K&D! We split an appetizer, entree, side and dessert and we were both so full and so happy with everything we ate. The octopus was outstanding, halibut was beautifully prepared, the gratin potatoes were wonderful - and we are suckers for sticky toffee pudding. Everything was delish!

Great food- once we were finally seated. Had reservations specifically for outdoor patio and upon arrival hostess did not feel comfortable seating us at the table she reserved for us due to some wetness from the rain in their covered patio. We were then told we had to wait all over again and it would be 45mins to 1 hour since outdoor tables were first come first serve and they had several walk-ins waiting. What was the point of the reservation? And how is that our fault that you assigned us an inappropriate table? Terrible customer service and embarrassing, especially since I was hosting friends visiting from NYC/FL. Ambiance was nice, but that whole ordeal dampened our vibe.

I absolutely loved this place! The dinner menu was a little different but i like trying new things. Our server was phenomenal (sorry i forgot his name) and very accommodating. He even served us a special treat for our birthday. The host was very welcoming and offered masks to those in the party that did not have them. I really like all the precautions they are taking to serve a safe dining experience. I will definitely be back! 😄
