Severely overpriced, mediocre food and very unattentive waitress.
We selected location due to proximity to Second City and had reserved a table. Service was marginal, had to ask host for a server to wait on us and menu was limited, but tasty.
Great service, good food, delish cocktails, easy fun.
All I can say is the food and the service was beyond awful. AWFUL.
The service was excellent. The location is great. Very convenient. We attended a Second City Show and didn't need to brave the show to get good food. The food itself was okay. Not great, but far from bad. The desserts were AWESOME!!! The churro with vodka infused hot chocolate made up for the tasteless burger (my friends did enjoy the tacos and shrimp and grits). I will go back.
The table we got seated at was barely large enough for 2 plates. I was expecting a decent seat because I had reservations 3 weeks in advance. The food came very quickly and was pretty good, nothing extremely special.
Decor, Service, and food flavor were all top notch.
I went after a Second City show, and it was excellent. Just what we wanted!
Mac and cheese had very little flavor and tasted watery. Nashville hot chicken was bland and underseasoned. Bottle of beer was served with glass that smelled like it had been cleaned with a dirty or musty-smelling towel. The decor was very cool and the service was good but I wouldn't recommend getting anything to eat or drink here. Better off eating at the Chipotle or Starbucks downstairs (or wide range of restaurants in the neighborhood) before a show at Second City.
Great food, fun atmosphere, & convenient location when visiting SCTC!
The food was very good and came out fast. Just wished there was a little bit more to choose from on the menu. Staff was pleasant and very attentive.
Night out with my wife. Love this place for a bite before some sketch comedy at second city
Absolutely amazing! People were great! Food was amazing!!
Great ambiance and food, however since it's called Kitchen & Bar, I expected a better cocktail menu. It lacked variety and the drinks were just okay.
Ideal for a pre-theater meal. We shared a dish of brussel sprouts and ordered fried chicken, short rib tacos, and roasted pork belly as entrees. We were warned by our server that the entrees might not arrive together, but we were lucky and got them all at the same time, perhaps because the restaurant was not very busy. The pork belly was particularly delicious! There was a good selection of beers, though the wine and cocktails were a little pricy. We would definitely go back.
Lindo lugar , comida rica y bebidas muy buenas . Solo les falto un cambiador para bebés en los baños . Pero en general muy bueno .
Food was average and drinks were nothing to write home about. Nothing healthy on the menu. Only came because we had tickets to second city that night. Will go somewhere else in oldtown before the next show we go to
Definitely a pre or post spot for Second City. Was there for dinner at 8, only one other table filled. Filled up as soon as Second City let out. Limited menu, food was good but wouldn't go back unless I was going to Second City
Hard to give any feedback since we couldn’t dine there. Made the reservation through the OpenTable app at 6:15 for 8pm. Arrived 45 minutes early to find out that entire restaurant was closed for a private party. Never received a call or email stating that the restaurant was closed. Very poor of the restaurant to allow reservations when they weren’t taking them.
Came here for drinks and dinner before a Second City show on a Friday night. We had a reservation for 2 and they sat us at the bar, which really was fine, but the host insisted on comping our first drinks because it was a little cramped. Really appreciated that, as it certainly was not necessary. Overall a convenient spot for drinks and small bites before a show.
Food and drinks were not very good...only reason to come here is if you are going to a Second City show prior to.
Good vibe, but I wish there were more food options! Lots of drink choices which was nice.
Order the Brussels Sprouts!! Even if you don’t ordinarily like brussel sprouts, you will love this perfect share plate! Yum!!
Limited menu but well done. The Old Fashioned is much better here than at the show. Drink here first! We had fried chicken and French fries. Would eat here again.
Very casual restaurant before going to Second City for a show. Food was very tasty and service quick and friendly. Full bar with limited wine menu.
Average to below average food. Horrible Crab Rangoon.
went to 1959 before a Second City show, since it's RIGHT NEXT DOOR! staff was great, friendly and very helpful. There are games to play, uno, trivia and such, and they had no problem letting us sit there for a while after finishing our meal, waiting for time to go to the show, which was hilarious! If you don't go to 1959 before a Second City event, you have shorted yourself for the evening.
We chose because we had tickets to Second City. Had reservations but our table was taken by someone walking in without reservations. We did get another table but it was dirty so we moved to a cocktail table to eat. We ordered Lobster Sliders, Beef Brisket Sliders and Fries. The beef came first, the Lobster at least 15 minutes later and never got the fries. The waiter did his best but it seemed he was clearly very busy with lots of customers. Kitchen must be terribly disorganized. Folks arriving after we ordered got their food ahead of us at the bar. It was convenient for Second City... and the beef was very good. The Lobster so so... but the timing of food service was bad. Not the waiter's fault... he did not keep us informed or seem overly concerned about our plight.
Food was overpriced and not of great quality.
Loved this place! Great drinks! Great food! We split everything so we were all able to try many dishes! Small menu, but everything was a hit!
The space and decor created a great atmosphere where you could take your time and enjoy the experience. The waitstaff was amazing! Our serve was knowledgeable in the menu, but she also gave great insight to Second City.
Great experience and will be back!
Small menu, but very good food. Variety of drink options. Nice, relaxed atmosphere.
The sign said "wait to be seated". So we waited. And we waited. The bar staff glanced over since we were standing there awkwardly but said nothing. When I motioned to get there attention to perhaps call a hostess, the look was quickly darted to something else. Seems like a bar where u have to know someone to get service. We went across the street to Qdoba (not the fast food place) and had a nice meal. Wont ever go back to 1959
We were looking for a spot in the area and found Kitchen 1959 on Yelp. We didn't know it was part of Second City. It's probably a fun place to grab a drink or snack before a show, but it was an underwhelming dinner experience. Our food didn't come out at the same time, one of our drinks was bad, and the check was really high overall.
Convenient to the Comedy Club right next door. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant.
We couldn't make it. I tried for 20 minutes Saturday afternoon to cancel but couldn't navigate the OT site to do so. Asked for forgotten password, but email never came. I will try again in the future. Please don't hold missed reservation against me.
We ate dinner before seeing a show at Second City. We sat at the bar and didn't have a bartender who was very attentive to us. Service was average - not particularly bad, not particularly good. I wish there was a larger menu to order from.
good food, tasty appetizers, small tables, good service
Went prior to Second City show. Food was better than expected. And especially liked the cocktails. Just wished we were able to get the same cocktails during the show. However, there is a separate kitchen/bar for the theater, unfortunately.
