A venerable favorite slips a notch. Friday night for dinner out -- hardly a sole. The kitchen staff and servers resembled crows lined up on a power line -- staring out at the handful of guests -- a little bit eerie. Burgers (and even the bacon topping) was very bland (and overdone). Server was cheery, helpful and pleasant. We'll have a good hard think before coming back to the Kingston. Too bad...
We enjoyed our brunch. The server, Jessica, was very pleasant and attentive. The food is a great price and filling. Some more options would be nice though.
The Health Salad is fabulous but I really missed the Beer Cheddar Soup!
I've been to the Kingston many times and was underwhelmed by the service which made the meal just average for me. We certainly didn't need to reserve as the restaurant was quite empty. When shown to our table we were in a two seater that had pub chairs. I was with a friend who has back issues and felt more comfortable in a booth. When asking for a booth ( there were many around us ..again, not busy ) the hostess took us to the back of the restaurant right beside the server / kitchen / bathroom area...felt like a bit of a punishment for asking for a booth however I thanked her and she just walked away abruptly like we were an inconvenience. Having a bad day??? Secondly, we waited over 10 minutes for a server to approach us - remember, we were right beside the server area and kitchen. They seemed to not have time for us until my friend finally called over to see if we could be served. Once our server arrived he provided the service I was accustomed to at the Kingston..friendly! All in all, the food was good..it's a great area close to shopping and the Orpheum / Commodore so I would still recommend...just sad to see people having a bad day...if your unhappy in your job, find another...the Kingston will thank you!!
Great atmosphere although a bit noisy. Our waiter was fantastic (forgot his name).
Server completely ignored us for first 20 minutes, like we weren't there and let all the glasses get empty. When I called to increase my reservation a week in advance from 6-10, the person on the phone gave the impression I was asking something unreasonable, should have been a simple yes or no and positive but was not.
Good place to go for a bite to eat before a game. Favourite stop before a BC Lions game
Excellent service from Jackie. More Happy Hour options and a few additions to the menu would be appreciated.
All good. Great friendly service and good eats
I had the BLT, which sounds simple enough but it was heavenly!!! Great atmosphere! Will definitely be back!
