This was my choice for my annual birthday outing. I was not disappointed. The drinks were very good and the food was delicious. We had a slight glitch with my filet being overdone, but they took it back and the second one was perfection. I swapped out the mashed potatoes for the horseradish mashed potatoes and they were happy to accommodate. Totally enjoyable experience

We started our meal experience with the mussels and a beautiful wine, available by the glass. Next we shared the MK wedge salad, a crispy half of romaine with tart apples, bacon and blue cheese finished with a buttermilk dressing....loved it! DH had the ravioli for his entree and I the braised short ribs. Melt in your mouth! Served with mashed potatoes with a hint of horseradish and unbelievably tender, fresh, green beans. So sad that we did not have room for dessert!

We dined here in March 2021 at the end of the whole COVID thing (I hope). This kind of ruined the experience with table spacing and ridiculous mask thing. The food was ok, I didn't think the selection was that great. Prices were steep for an average experience. My wife really enjoyed it and that is the reason I go out to begin with.

First time having the MK burger & fries. They were fantastic! Burger on the buttery brioche bun was amazing and the crispy seasoned French fries were the best I’ve experienced in years!

Restaurant week menu was outstanding! The flan was the best we’ve ever had. The noise level is high so the person at our table with hearing problems felt it was extremely difficult to converse without leaning over the table and talking loudly. Some sound dampening would be greatly appreciated as conversation over a meal is another reason we eat out. Thanks

We were seated right on time for our 6:30 reservation. The wait staff were extremely friendly.
We ordered off the restaurant week menu and it was just amazing. The MK salad was HUGE and my wife and I shared that. We each had the pasta and it was cooked perfectly! We love this place and were very impressed with the COVID safety as well. We will be going back soon for a glass of wine at the bar

As always they deliver. We never choose the ‘deal’ during restaurant week because the options are typically so limited. This time, we both went for the three-course option because both salads, the bolognese and haddock, the flan and chocolate mousse were available. Everything was delicious as were the cocktails and bottle of wine we shared. Our only hesitation was about people sitting unmasked at the bar while the bartender worked in tight quarters. There weren’t many people at the bar but it didn’t seem as safe there as elsewhere. We will be back.

We went for Maine restaurant week. The food was great! An amazing clam chowder which is very unique -- not creamy like most but a wonderfully flavorful broth.
The pasta was incredible -- homemade and cooked perfectly. I am a big Bolognese fan and this was among the best I have ever had!

I found this restaurant very expensive for portion sizes offered. There were literally 6-8 normal sized ravioli on the plate and it was about $20. I was also disappointed in the vegan option(s) they stated would be available during restaurant week. They didn't have a vegan dessert included so I opted out of the 3 course menu and chose the quinoa dish. It was overwhelmingly salty though. My daughter had the ziti with bolognese and liked it. But for about $20, I feel like we shouldn't have left still hungry.

Great food and atmosphere! Tables spaced well in this current environment! Service was great! Attentive without being overly so. We had the short rib, bolognese for entrees and the stuffed dates and wedge for apps. The wedge was done with romaine and buttermilk dressing- fabulous! Dates app was good also....but was a little too sweet fir me as an app! Looking forward to coming here again soon!

This is the fourth time we have gone to MK Kitchen and have loved every visit. The food is unusual in its preparation and attractive in its presentation. The staff is attentive without being obsequious. the wine list, although small has bottles of excellent variety and are fairly priced We were surprised, on a Tuesday evening that the tables were all taken- a tribute to the quality of the place, considering the caution that most people use because of the pandemic.

Staff was great, easy to make a reservation even though it was last min thus a preferred time wasn’t available, not MKs fault. The menu was limited with more drink choices then food, not sure if it was COVID or normal menu as this was my wife’s and I first time. Main meal portions were small, and they were ok, wife’s food sides were cold. This was ok as we were already full from the fondue and Brussels sprouts that were amazing. Bill wasn’t to bad what you’d expect for a date night dinner. All in all good experience, ok to great food, solid 4 stars, would recommend to a friend for drinks and appetizers. Wife and I will have to go back and try something different to get a good gauge on main meal.

We took our young girls for a “fancy” dinner and do something different. They had such a great time and the staff were amazing in making sure they felt special. The food was amazing, especially the chocolate cake and short ribs. Overall, we cannot wait to go back.
