                                                        Very pricy for what we got. No vegetables, no bread, nothing but a small steak, about 8 oz. that was very tasty but a bit tough, a few very small potatoes and four or five onion rings. That's it. Very disappointing. Ambiance was close to horrible. Plain hard surface table, chairs -- nothing else. No table cloth, no condiments, minimal art work/writing on the walls, just advertisements for local breweries.

                                                        Food was inventive and very fresh. Loved oyster appetizer - wish they had larger plate for entree. Disappointed that they could not make any substitutions.

                                                        It was better than my previous dinner experience however nothing is seasoned. And a lot of people don't eat pork so it would be nice to offer a mac n cheese where the pork can be taken out yet still taste appealing. I try to give people 2nd, even 3rd chances but it seems as though they don't care about your suggestions.

                                                        The food was very good however we spent a lot of money and left hungry. The portions are much too small to be considered a meal..especially for the cost. The service was exceptional!

                                                        The food was good, but we were really disappointed there was no kids items on the menu (though they had high chairs). When we asked our server if they could make a plain grilled cheese (when there was a grilled cheese and pork belly sandwich already on the menu) he told us no at first but then checked with a manager. When he came back he told us they would do it, however it would be the same price as the other sandwich (which was $11) pretty ridiculous for a 18 month old baby who will only eat a small amount and we are only talking about 2 slices of bread and some cheese. Even though we enjoyed the food, we will definitely not go back. There are plenty of other restaurants with good food and are more accommodating to those with children and we would rather spend our money there.

                                                        Very limited menu. 5-6 entrees. They had run out of hamburgers? Very hard to believe! No longer served hanger steak. Only three toast points with an appetizer. Asked for more and we were charged additional.

                                                        Third time at The Kitchen. Have not been disappointed with anything we have ordered and we have tried to order different menu items on each visit. We have ordered the Candied Bacon twice though ;) So Good. New favorite from this visit has to be the Charcuterie Board. Whole cooked fish has been two separate friends favorite. We will be back.

                                                        Good food a little disappointed in the amount of pork and Reb meat on the menu wasn't expecting that. Once I found something I could eat though I really enjoyed it

                                                        I've been to the Kitchen several times. I had hoped for better things! The drinks are done well. The menu is small and overpriced. The "foodie" specials lack originality and are not good. The charcuterie plate is the best thing on the menu. It was placed in front of me with no discussion of the cheeses or meats. I like the decor and bar/drinks. However the menu needs some serious help or this is going to crash.

                                                        The grilled Spring onions were the special and they were not worth the $12.00. Difficult to eat but the red pesto that accompanied them was very good. The beet salad did not have the yellow beets which really make the salad. I will ask next time if the yellow beets are available. The visit fell flat compared to our previous visit. If the park jowls are available they are a must do, I wish they had been there, they are worth a 40 minute drive.

                                                        The food was very good. We had 2 problems...One of the dishes came with vegetable puree. When it came there was so little on the plate I don't know why it was advertised with the dish. When we asked for a little more, they charged us $2 for each. This was a special and one of the highest priced dishes to begin with. Not very good customer service!! We ordered dessert and one of the diners asked for just the ice cream and not the entire dessert. We were told we could not have just the dessert as they might run out of it for other orders....We were the only table in the restaurant at the time and it was rather late in the evening. I don't think there were going to run out of ice cream....Poor customer again!!! They finally brought the ice cream but a little too late!! There are too many other great restaurants to eat in and server and customer service are important to an excellent dining experience!!

                                                        One of my favorite restaurants in Jacksonville. We are new to town and the staff, especially my favorite waiter/bar tender JD makes us feel like family. The chef is creative and intimately involved , not only the menu but the patrons satisfaction. I can't say enough about this little gem!

                                                        Since moving from Los Angeles, I have been looking for a gastropub experience that brought that "feel" that I have been missing so much. I found it. I really appreciated the farm to table mission, and the commitment to creating all of the menu items, in house. I'm a bit of a cocktail snob, and found that their cocktails are a bit novice and reaching to mix too many flavors together. A few tweaks in their mixology department, and they are golden. However, the beers? Totally on point. But don't go expecting a stein or mug of beer. There is going to be a sense of style and class, which raises the bar (no pun intended) on brews.

                                                        Very disappointing meal. The beet salad was so overly salted that it was sent back. The yellow tail snapper was over priced and had little flavor. The pork was okay and the pancakes were the best part of the meal. This restaurant aspires to be a lot more than it is. Yes it is farm to table but so are most restaurants nowadays. There is a particular problem with seasoning and not sure if they taste the food before it goes out.

                                                        We came Valentines night and were very pleased. Another guest surprised her partner with 4 acapella singing women we were able to enjoy for a few songs. The service was outstanding from arrival to end. My whole baked snapper and his short ribs were perfectly cooked. The charcuterie tray was one of the best in town.

                                                        The lamb shank with hoecakes is back and better than ever. I give the bone a gentle twist and a fork is all you need to separate the meat. The chef obviously considers this dish from farm to table. The steak is beautifully delivered but the grilled meat tastes of charcoal briquettes and was not my favorite. We settled our palette with double blonde brownies drizzled in caramel with a tasty scoop of ice cream on top. The server J.D. treated us as VIP's and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

                                                        Food and service was great but way too expensive for the amount of food you get. I understand it's all fresh and from local farms.
