As always, the service and food/drinks were excellent. We were able to walk in and get a table on a Sat night, which is unusual but much appreciated.

We went to MK for our 10th anniversary dinner, joined by another couple. we had a fantastic time. Food was amazing, as always. What I loved best is that we had appetizers, entrée and dessert with coffee and spent almost 3 1/2 hours talking, laughing and eating. Its so nice to not feel rushed. He had a fantastic anniversary.

Thanks, Patty and Keith Cook

What a disappointment. The menu looked so promising, but unfortunately dinner turned out to be expensive and only so-so. The duck liver pate was the better of the dishes, but the gathered greens salad was unremarkable except for the strangely textured cheese on top. The scallops themselves were well-cooked, but the pairing of sweet roasted vegetables overwhelmed them. And everything had grapes, which is never a good sign. The only high point was the service which was excellent on a Thursday night.

Delightful, friendly service and really good food. It was crowded on a recent Saturday night, which attests to its appeal to off season locals. I hope they'll be around for a long time.

I made a reservation for a party of five to celebrate my birthday 10/23. We received a warm greeting from the host and were immediately seated at a rather large, round table close to the front desk. There was a card on the table with a hand written greeting acknowledging my birthday, that was a nice touch. The restaurant was very loud due to the dance class that was taking place in the studio upstairs. After sitting for several minutes, the host poured water. We had been sitting for at least 10 minutes before our server approached. We ordered drinks and a cheese board when we finally had his attention. The drinks and appetizer were served in a timely fashion along with a small portion of bread. We were offered more bread, and it wasn’t served. The cheese board was delicious, as was my specialty cocktail. We ate the entire thing without a check-back from the server. A few minutes after the cheese board had been cleared, the server returned to take our entree order. I order first—a filet mignon, medium rare, which was the most expensive entree on the menu. The server replied, “no appetizer?” I found this to be very rude—we had already had an appetizer, and the server should have asked in a way that doesn’t make the guest feel that the order is inadequate. (Such as, “would you care to have a salad before entrées?”) We placed our order, and the food arrived in a timely fashion. Every dish was done to absolute perfection. The server checked in with us after a few bites, as he should have. Our server was generally absent, performing as if he had one table too many, and there was a lack of hospitality on his part. He could use some coaching in the way of speaking to guests and up selling techniques—always speak in the positive, “may I offer you a _____? We do have ____ which may compliment your meal. Would you like to choose—?” For the prices, the service paled in comparison to the food. It was an exquisite meal. But, I would ask for a different server next time.

We went for my birthday, and had an excellent experience. They even had a little happy birthday card on the table. The fois gras and date apps were very good. The salmon and the gnocci were well cooked, not over done. The risotto wasn't outstanding, but also not bad. My only complaint was location, which they can't help. A busy intersection is near by, and lots of great windows also mean lots of headlights in your eyes while you eat at night. And the parking situation was really bad. But the food was great and the server was outstanding. I will definitely be back. I do wish their dessert menu was as creative as the rest of their menu.

We go to MK’s when we are in town. Food is incredible. On this trip I had paella which is truly the best paella I have ever had. My wife had the mushroom risotto and loved it. We also had the onion tart and lobster cones. Both delicious. I highly recommend this place to anyone that loves great food!!!

The food and atmosphere were wonderful. The service and attention to detail were amazing. We tried the grilled romaine salad, lamb and gnocchi ragout, bolognese ziti dish. All smaller portions. Perfect. I was using a knee stroller because of foot surgery and they made sure I was comfortable. Very attentive staff. Will be going back again very soon.

When I made my reservation, I noted that I wanted a table that was tucked away a bit for my husband's birthday dinner. When we arrived they greeted us by wishing my husband a happy birthday and even had a hand written birthday card for him. When our server arrived she also wished him a happy birthday. The food was amazing! My husband had the duck and I had the salmon. We each had a different risotto with our meals and they were equally amazing. They were great portions and cooked perfectly. For dessert they brought out the flour-less chocolate cake we ordered with a candle and Happy Birthday written in chocolate. Thank you for making his birthday dinner so special.
