Nonetheless, we enjoyed a tasty brunch with decent cocktails and enjoyed saying farewell.

The food was underwhelming. I really wanted to like it, but It was just astonishingly bad. Our waiter didn’t complement the experience either. There was maybe a small effort put forth, but sadly, in the wrong direction. I only wish that I was told before we dined here, that they were closing in one week... this comes as no surprise, now that I’ve had it. However, I would have appreciated the opportunity to decide against what was a very bad meal.

New chef turned away food allergy requests, many things on menu and wine list were unavailable, and service was poor - waiter even dropped check off midway during the meal. So disappointing for what had been a regular and reliable great neighborhood night out before the change in the kitchen.

I mentioned it to our waitress, who apologized and actually relayed my dismay to him. He came and apologized and adjusted our drink prices and comped our desserts. Great customer service and total redemption! We enjoyed all of our food and look forward to returning.

When we walked in, we had to go find someone to seat us. They were shocked we had a res. The waitress took a few minutes to reach us. We ordered immediately. The oyster sliders, deviled eggs and charred snap peas. The bread was toasted but cold, making the oyster slider cool instead of piping hot. The deviled were fine. Only 1/4 of the peas were charred and cold. The waitress never came to ask if everything was ok. Huge disappointment

Five hugs from staff members made me feel the love. Started with yummy fresh oysters expertly opened and presented by Phu. Next came deviled eggs with roe ( thank you for not making these with bacon). And, finally, Gulf fish Pontchartrain with a very light crab burre blanc. The only changes I'd make would be add something green to the plate and cut down on salt. I can always add salt but you can never take it away. The fish is a wonderful dish I'd order routinely. Staff is always great-- Yuri, Jamie, James, Kiley. We're getting to be family. Current Chardonnay is good ( not as good as the french one but acceptable). Keep up the good work !

Fish had no accompanying food on the plate —and nothing was offered. Those that served seemed to be serving for the first time. BUT we chose this restaurant because we liked the ambiance, previous meals outdoors (drinks and hors d’oeuvres) and the well written emails—-spelling, grammar and inviting ideas.

It is lovely inside but the service and food were disappointing. We did not order appetizers or salads, but it took an inordinate amount of time to get our entrees. My entree, fried chicken with collard greens, consisted of three large lumps of batter covering three very small chicken thighs! While the chicken meat was very moist, wading through all of the batter to find the little bit of meat was not worthwhile. We cannot recommend this restaurant particularly if someone is interested in eating fried chicken.

From the wonderful shrimp toast to start... followed by fresh salads... and then a perfectly grilled red fish and a creative bologna sandwich... to the final desserts... buttermilk sorbet and chocolate ice cream.... everything tasted delicious! Our server, Emily, was especially gracious and attentive. I must add the selection of whiskey and bourbon is stellar, as well as excellent wines and spirits. We’ll be back! Cheers!

Drinks are completely out before they ask if you want another. They are not attentive to other needs... utensils, condiments etc... food is good, but lack of service out weighs the experience. This is not the first time we’ve been to Kenton’s and it has been a similar experience on previous visits.

And one of our guest was lactose intolerant and this seemed to annoy her. The restaurant had NOTHING on the menu for a main course to serve our guest. With the exception of a whole trout. I enquired if the kitchen could debone it for us. The waitress immediately replied NO the kitchen will not.

My friend and I just laughed when we saw the timy portion that was the wedge salad for $14. I have never complained about portion size before as I don't need a lot of food but wow, it was a bit of a stretch. We were starving after, and I had had the deviled eggs as well, so we ordered cornbread. For $16 I should have gotten the burger. I don't mind expense if I feel like it's a good value. I feel like the server should have let us know thi was not an entree size salad, but an appetizer portion.

They have a great bar with good selection of bourbon. They have weekly menu specials and also there is an onsite bourbon specialist that holds bourbon tasting events. The atmosphere is good and if you go try the duck mousse if it is on the menu. Also, the smoked bologna is outstanding. A must visit for lunch or dinner. Patio outside is a great place to enjoy dinner and people watch. My favorite Friday night place!!!

All were expertly shucked by Brenden. I followed with my usual fried oyster sliders-- very good with pickles and jalapeño mayo. The French chard is delicious! There's a new head chef and new items on the menu. I hope that there will be a vegetarian option, a cheese plate, and perhaps a shrimp and pasta small plate. The menu itself has been revamped and I don't find it especially easy to read or organized but haven't discussed with my good friend Yuri yet. This restaurant is on my weekly list

Our service was excellent - perfect balance of attention yet allowing us time to visit. Grilled oysters were delicious, followed by salads & roasted brocoli. Unfortunately the vinaigrette was too salty & bitter! That was turned around by a fabulous creme brulee. I like the atmosphere of Kenton's & will return again.

Kind of cold. The service was great. Ambiance was lovely. I just felt that for what we paid i wasn’t really wowed. I’ve had better dishes elsewhere for a fraction of the price. I don’t mind paying $$$ for a great dinner. I just left feeling like that’s it?

We would have preferred a more relaxed service.
