W found the food to be very good but the place was quite empty for brunch which makes me wonder.
Server was aloof, and inattentive.
Food--Eggs Benedict came with cold meat and cold hollandaise sauce.
Manager did take the cost of the Eggs Benedict off our bill, and I left a meager tip for the server.
Best advice is to stay away from this place.
We had been here a year ago and everything was good. Something has changed and not for the better.
The front bar is so loud as to be teeth-jarring, but don't let that put you off, as the rear dining room noise is at a tolerable level, and the delicious house-made pastas are worth it.
Food was fine and priced for mid town, but the service was simply unacceptable. We had a different waiter each of the four times we interacted with someone. Water came with the food. Appetizer came after main course. Just bad.
Unfortunately one of the meals had a hair in the salad greens. Did not make a fuss with the server but was not pleased to see such.
All the staff made our night so special! Thank you so much for helping us celebrate.
I do a lot of business lunches, and the last two times I've been to Kingside the service has been awful. I've done several lunches at Kingside before, and have even booked small events there, and have never had issues, so I'm not sure what changed. The first "bad" experience I had, two of us were seated in a corner and it took at least 10 minutes for someone to notice we were there. After we ordered it took 40 minutes for our food to arrive - with no apology. It took forever again to get our check, again with no apology. We could help but laugh at how neglected we were - it was almost comical. Deciding that must have been a fluke, I returned a couple of weeks later to give them another chance. It was a little better, but when the time came to get the check, I had to ask for it multiple times. I finally stood up and walked back to find our server and ask him to give us our check (nicely), at which point he printed it and dropped it on our table without even looking at us or saying anything. All our jaws dropped. It was VERY rude. Needless to say, I won't be back.
Overall it was an Okay place. I have to say I was disappointed due to the fact that the menu online is vastly different from the one actually being used In the restaurant which is what I based my decision on as whether to go or not. The service was fast (too fast for me as I had planned for the pre-fixe menu which they no longer provide) and efficient. The ambiance is dim/cozy, and the seating area is spacious. The food (strictly speaking on what I ordered the pasta ragu) was tasty if minimal in size for the price and did not come with any side/table bread.
Service was terrible. Insanely slow. It took an hour and half to complete our breakfast experience here. Avoid.
I had a frittata and it was tasteless. Service was so-so.
