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.

6 for Brunch at Kingside on a slow Saturday. Unbelievably slow service, very inattentive waiter, and the food was disappointing - for example, the eggs benedict were overdone. Will not return.

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!

Came for breakfast on a Sunday with a reservation. Eggs took 42 minutes to get there and the restaurant was not even a quarter full. Barely an apology from the server about the slow service and not a single cent taken off the $50.00 bill when it arrived (2 breakfasts, a coffee & a cappuccino).

Food was nothing special; omelet with goat cheese was something I could have made at home and the side salad it came with had an oil dressing on and not much else (no flavour).

With all the fantastic places to have breakfast/brunch in NYC, I would recommend you skip this place. There is better food and customer service elsewhere.

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.

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.

I eat here frequently and was a HUGE fan, but I'm sorry to report that the quality of the food has declined. The BLT w/ maple bacon was a rare treat - but no more maple bacon☹️; the grilled chicken sandwich used to come on a beautiful firm roll - now a pedestrian hamburger bun. Unless change come to Kingside, I won't be back.
