Cool atmosphere and drinks were goods Dinner was ok. Unfortunately we ordered a medium rare steak and it was pretty tough and not medium rare. We had trouble cutting the steak even with our steak knives. A little disappointing.

Was with my wife for a date night. Had a great time, but did not like being in the row of couple seats. Would have liked to have a choice of a private table or seat with other couples

We came here for Valentine’s Day dinner. The menu was prefixed but had some good choices.
All in all, I would recommend.

Our experience at King + Duke was fantastic! We enjoyed a pre fixe menu and wine pairing for Valentine's Day, and we were very impressed with the options. The lobster toast and the pressed lamb were especially delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The overall ambiance was vibrant, welcoming and fun. I can't wait to go back!

I took my parents out for Valentine’s Day and enjoyed the fixed price offerings with the wine pairing. The lobster toast was all claw meat on a wonderful thick piece of toast with mornay sauce. Loved it.

My mother had the most tender NY strip we’d ever had. Beautifully prepared.

The fish entree was spectacular.

Chris, our server, was as present as we needed and provided excellent service and sound advice.

I look forward to enjoying regular menu offering in future.

Almost perfect! The place is cute and the menu is really fun. Cocktails were up there with some of the best I've had. The only thing is that my sick breast was med well when I asked for med rare. (Still delicious though) looking forward to coming back eventually!

Denise was always smiling and provided us excellent service. Food and ambiance amazing and they sat me at a moderately noisy area in the back so it was good. Try the Baked Alaskan! My husband and I devoured that thing.

Took 10 minutes to place our first drink order. Only got two of the three sides that were ordered. Octopus appetizer tasted like pure vinegar and lobster hush puppies were mushy. Pork chop was tough and dry. Poor experience and cost too high for such poor service and food.

We made reservations here for Sunday brunch and we were pleasantly surprised with how nice the place and dining experience was. The restaurant is very soothing and cozy. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. I had the omelet with bacon and my husband had the duke. The coffee was fresh and hot. We finished the meal with the cinnamon rolls which were even better. We loved the entire experience.

The food was good but not outstanding. The kale salad was quite oily, which was disappointing when you think you are choosing a healthy option. Service was great. So overall i would recommend it.

We had scallops, octopus and side of potatoes. All three were great! The potatoes were my favourite. Scallops was very small portion compared to its price. Octopus was good size and very delicious.
The ambiance and service was great.
It is a little pricey in compare to similar restaurants nearby, but a good spot for a date night.

We didn't like the first table and it was so hard to get another table. It was noon on Sunday and there were many tables around, and they had this excuse and that excuse not to seat us on our preferred table. Finally, we were seated right in front of kitchen at a table too small for 4 of us. The maitre d'i and the staff should know that seating taints the meal experience to begin with no matter how good the food is. I have been to King and Duke for dinner, and loved it, but the brunch was not to come back to.

We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation. One of our dishes (lamb) came out cold and my 26 dollar burger came with extremely overcooked. Absolutely would not recommend.
