Reasonable place with reasonable food. We've been there on Jan 1st 2019 - expected a little more for a brunch meal option - Ordered steak and eggs - Scramble eggs underseasoned, steak ordered medium but burned taste and lacking salt and pepper, the chimichurri sauce saved the steak taste (although they forgot to bring the sauce).

I was excited to go here but the food was actually bland. The bucatini and hummus both lacked salt and flavor. The rest was great, the restaurant is great and ambiance is nice. I was disappointed with the food but perhaps I should try other things on the menu,

Service was a bit slow. We were in time, but took a bit to get our table ready, but understandable given the holidays. We had a group of 7, including 4 kids, so big order, but the waiter didn’t miss anything. Only knock was that my buddy wanted cream for his coffee, that took a while to come out. Almost 10 mins. He just ended up using his daughter’s milk, just as the cream finally came out. Overall, good experience and would recommend for brunch to friends.

Kingston has a very "light" menu which is great before going to CArnegie Hall or theater. The food was sushi focused or healthy focusted with quinoa and simply cooked chicken . Price is a bit high for the food but it is a pleasant restauarnt to dine at...

Our waiter had all of his table sat at one time and they completely forgot about us. After 15 min of no return I had to go get him. Then they just tried to ply us with free dessert and they were even out of that. The space is cool, the food is just so so. Don’t waste your time.

Please note due to kitchen issues (per the Kingside team), there is a significantly limited menu consisting of items that do not required to be cooked.

12:30 reservation on thanksgiving. Was looking for lunch food. We got the brunch menu . Lunch started at 12:00. They wouldn’t offer anything else. So our choose we’re pretty much all breakfast food. Nothing on the menu to feed my children besides eggs and pancakes which they had for breakfast already there. Service was horrible. Waited 20 mintiea for drinks and another 15 to order. Asked for a cappuccino with cinnamon and the server gave me cinnamon sticks on the side. I didn’t think asking for cinnamon with a cappuccino was such an odd request.

Service is a major issue at this restaurant. Everyone is polite and helpful, but that's only if your ever server shows up, and then comes back again.

Only brunch served Saturday midday. So limited options. Only about 8 tables filled yet service between courses extremely slow. Servers were perfectly pleasant but inexplicably leisurely. Food was hot, which we appreciated, but lacked body/flavor. Great look but would appreciate more ‘oomph.’

The food was outstanding but the service was VERY slow. We ate at Kingside the Saturday of Labor Day weekend and were one of only two occupied tables...but the service was excruciatingly slow. Hope that's not the norm.

Great place to share several dishes.
Service was very attentive if not a bit subservient. The waiter practically bowed.


Food and drinks were great. Their in-house tonic makes a big diff in the cocktails.

Very disappointed ! We have wanted to try this restaurant for a while.
My food cane when my husband was already done
And I finished my glass of wine .
The idea of going out for dinner with my husband was to eat dinner together not watch each other .
I asked fir my salad with shrimp and dressing on the side. It came with so much dressing on it. I had to wait for a new salad. The waiter just made like it was no big deal. We left it alone and did not complain .
Wish we picked another restaurant .

Did not love. First went when it opened for brunch. Had bad experience with service and food. Gave it another chance (a year or so later) and was not impressed. Waiter didn't pay much attention to us, forgot our fries, seemed disinterested. The food was mediocre as the best.

The menu is very limited and is not the same as posted on the Open Table site. The sushi was good and very fresh. The chef likes to combine fruit with savory items which is not my preference. We couldn’t get a salt and pepper grinder that worked. After 3 attempts, some were empty and others were broken. GF items are very limited.

good location for Carnegie Hall visits.
We had Breakfast, the breakfast menu has enough choices, but nothing special/remarkable.
The desert was good, but expensive for the amount and quality we got.
Alcoholic Drinks are expensive, compared to other locations.
Overall I can recommend it.

Service was really nice but the chef had a heavy hand with the salt shaker. My fish was fine but my husband had the farrow bowl and it was way too salty. It’s supposed to be a healthy dish, but not when you load it up with salt!
