As I arrived ahead of the reservation time on a ,blustery, cold night, I was seated in the lounge next to a fireplace and offered a cup of warm mulled cider. The meal we shared with long-time, dear friends was spectacular and totally blew them away. This is no mean feat considering they travel and dine frequently in this country and many others. We had Lobster French Toast, Foie Gras Torchons, Quuince salad, Paupiette de Veau, and Cassoulet. All were painstakingly prepared and delicious. The service was exemplary. And we will never stop admiring the interior designed by Darryl Carter and the owners. Bravo Kinship!!

A very warm welcome. Got there at 6 on a weeknight and not noisy. Server was excellent and food choices were "something for everyone
usually take home food but this time I ate every bite.
Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for

Beautiful Décor and extremely good food! We had the Maine Lobster French toast, shared the KabKabou (with the out of this world mini tear apart bread baked in an iron pan). The Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte w/Peanut Butter Ice Cream for dessert was so worth the calories!

I would recommend for business or a special occasion.

We had dinner at Kinship to celebrate my birthday. It was amazing! We have been here before with larger groups, so this time we didn’t order the chicken since it takes a while. Instead we ordered steak and fish. They both were delicious. My only small disappointment was the dessert. We weren’t blown away. They should add a cookie plate.

The creativity at Kinship did not disappoint, but, alas the kitchen loses a star because the chef on duty--despite all the creative juices in the house--couldn't invent a halfway decent halibut dish without butter or cream for the one lactose intolerant member of our party. The lobster french toast was decadent, yes, and lobster was cooked perfectly, but we all agreed the ravioli with cabbage and veal tongue was the superior dish. We opted for the roast chicken, which serves three. Truly one of the best chicken dishes I've had. Outstanding, and a great value at $56. The desserts were all excellent, worthy of a michelin star or near-michelin. The kinship sauerkraut (shoat) was superbly tender beautifully prepared, though the crispy langos didn't win us over. The mackerel mulligatawny is also an inspired way to prepare an unpopular fish: we were all surprised at how well the dish worked, and agreed that we'd have to try something like that at home. Unfortunately the halibut, normally served with lobster butter, was a bland preparation, modest in flavor, and completely underwhelmed. Footnote--we ate at Plume about a month ago and the kitchen there prepared dishes for this same butter and dairy free guest EVERY BIT AS GOOD as the decadent creations on the menu across four separate courses. That's what a michelin rated kitchen should be able to do. All in all, I would and will go back to Kinship because I thought the food was excellent and not,even for the high end market, insanely priced. We had a lot of food--four appetizers, two entrees and one full table entree, plus four desserts and two bottles of wine for $250 per couple. I was expecting to pay a lot more, especially with the liquor. I'm truly grateful for this, because eating at CityZen, I could never even find a decent bottle of wine for under $120 to go with the incredible food!

An absolutely superb dining experience. Waiter was friendly and had great recommendations. The vibe was nice. Lively but not too loud. The food was just amazing. Ordered the cassoulet, braised pumpkin and cabbage ravioli. Couldn't have been happier with the meal. It's worth noting that with those items, a bottle of red and two starter cocktails the bill was reasonable. 10/10 would recommend. Very satisfied customer.

We went for dinner recently (week night) to celebrate my wife's birthday. The dinner was superb. All of aspect of the dining experience were superb; the ambience, the service, the cocktails, the wine, the meal, and the dessert.

We had some excellent food that we recommend: 1. Pineapple Quince salad, 2. Lobster French Toast, 3. Tuna (almost raw) 4. Halibut, 5. Rack of Lamb 6. Carrot Cake 7. Chocolate Cake for Birthday Celebration...

The wine served with the Pineapple Quince Salad (Sancerre) and the Halibut (French/White Burgundy) was delicious. The mocktail was soda water and a fresh orange was also excellent.

Our server was helpful, pleasant, articulate, and available; but not overwhelming the table...

We salute the Chef, the wait staff, the serving staff, and all for an excellent Birthday dinner!

I had high expectations for this restaurant given the price but the food is not worth it. My short ribs with risotto were subpar. Risotto lack the consistency and was bland. The short ribs were unimpressive. The cauliflower soup was tasty. The empanada that comes with the soup despite well cooked the ingredients did not matched the flavor. The dough seems like was corn made like an arepa. I could no taste the chorizo. I also tried the heart with pistachio pesto sauce . The heart was chewy and the pistachio pesto sauce tasted like the Argentinian chimichurri.

The deserts were fenomenal. I tried the carrot cake, doughnuts and chocolate cake. Love the carrot cake!
One of the waiter drop the soup plate to floor while serving. Everyone was very apologetic about it. Staff overall were attentive and nice.
The ambience of the restaurant is intimate and cozy.

Kinship is a beautiful space, with exceptional food. The servers are very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, even though we arrived in time for our 6:30 reservation, we were not seated until 7 pm, with no explanation or apology or acknowledgement. It made for a frustrating start to the evening. Again-amazing food and space.

Drinks were good and wine list was okay. Started out very nice with 2 excellent appetizers. Two average appetizers. Recommend the lobster and waffles. Great flavor. Also the halibut with chanterelles was fantastic. The beef heart was not so good but the tater tots were excellent. The mulligatawny was disappointing and would not recommend.
Main course was steak that was very good but the cassoulet was bad. I love a good cassoulet and this was not it. The flavors did not meld together and was over salted and watery. The worst cassoulet I ever had and can not believe it would be served. Service was below average. We had lots of cassoulet left over and it was packaged up and delivered to us to take home. Surprise we had someone else left overs in the bag. I can not believe this restaurant got a Michelin star. No one ever asked us how tings were and never sought feedback. I have been out of country for several years. I loved cityzen but this place needs work.

Fantastic restaurant for ambience, furnishings, menu options and service. Staff is always very attentive and informative. On this visit, we were in a hurry to see a show in DC, and the staff watched the clock for us and prepared food very timely. It is best to take your time upstairs or downstairs in Metier. The chef for Kinship recently earned a Michelin Star which is downstairs in the same building, so when you eat at Kinship, it is food prepared by a Michelin Starred Chef! The menu choices are creative and delicious with many choices for all food preferences. Enjoy!

The food is consistently divine. The roast chicken is just ridiculously good. The lobster french toast? Sinfully divine. The pastry chef is creative but not crazy. I can't say enough. Just go.
