Went on thanksgiving for casual dinner And to watch football in the bar. Our server was MIA most of the time and they weren’t that busy! Okay food, but poor service made it an unsatisfactory experience. They had beautiful photos of cosmos on their Facebook page but clearly bartender on duty did not know how to make one. Would have sent it back, but took 15 minutes just to get it.

We went for Thanksgiving. It was out first visit, but we’ll definitely be returning! The venue itself is lovely. Open, well decorated, quality furniture. We were greeted by 2 very nice hostesses who seated us immediately even though we were early. The food was phenomenal! We ordered from the Thanksgiving menu (19.95 for a 3 course meal- 3 choices!) We both ordered the steak, with roasted potato and mixed vegetables, and were blown away by the quality and the taste. The salads were enormous and delicious. The plating was beautiful. Our server was super friendly and knowledgeable. Even though it was pretty busy, we never felt rushed nor forgotten. We enjoyed the late 80s and 90s background music. The volume was ideal- lots of conversations happening, but we weren’t struggling to hear each other. The pumpkin martini was strong and completely on point. Both the apple pie and the pumpkin cheesecake were superb. This may be our new date night place!

The Ahi tuna salad is very good. It's so good I went back and had the same thing 3 nights later. Both nights I had tickets to see a show at the Keswick Theater in Glenside, which is only about 10 minutes away. We were able to have dinner here and catch the show, so I can recommend it as a pre-theater event. The mussels appetizer is also generous enough to share, and was delicious.

It was my first time at Kitchen Bar and I was impress with the service and the food. I am please that they offer reservations because my and I went their to celebrate my birthday. To my surprise the waiter came out with a slice of cake for me to celebrate the day. My youngest daughter recommended this place to me and I am glad she did. We are had a wonderful time.

I love the very varied menu here. I also like that you are not crowded in. It was very conducive for our extended family Sunday dinner to relax and catch up with good food and drink. Our food was well prepared, and exactly what we ordered. Our server Elizabeth was knowledgeable about the menu, and so pleasant. We will be back.

Service was extremely slow and then their computers went down and we had to wait a long time for our check. No communication about the computers going down, just avoidance until we finally flagged down someone for our check. Poor, poor service. Won’t go back.

Treated granddaughter to dinner wanted to sit , eat and catch up in a comfortable dining atmosphere. Kitchen Bar was the perfect environment. The waiter (Peter) was very polite and the food was delicious with the exception of the grilled chicken Cesar salad my wife and I ordered ( the dressing was sweet) it was terrible. This is why I could only rate our overall experience and the food at four stars. Hopefully the chef will make the corrections and I would revisit this establishment again.

The food was extremely disappointing. I’ve had the dish several times and it was typically good. The server was not focused which left us many times waiting to either ask him for something or to actually receive what we asked him for. The restaurant wasn’t busy at all.

The food was adequate, but nothing special. The mashed potatoes were tasteless. The hummus was delicious, and the cream of broccoli soup tasted like canned chicken broth, a few bits of broccoli, and a bit of cream. My friend had a hamburger and said it was okay. The ambience was fine and the service was excellent. I would call it just an ordinary restaurant with a vibrant bar scene.

From what I have heard, the drinks are excellent.

We ended up here as there were no restaurants in the area with seats at the time we needed. We arrived and the place was empty at 7:00 on a Friday. Food was acceptable but far below what you would expect for the prices. Mr Hulayev needs to step up the game here or this place is going under.

The vegetable wrap was extremely salty and we had to return it go get another item. The vegetable flatbread pizza was very good and would recommend that. The service was a bit slow, as the waitress had several tables on the other side of the room and was unable to get over to our table very often.
