Great place for a date or evening with friends. Attentive yet not overwhelming wait staff. Nice spacing between courses so you don't feel rushed. Great evening out and away from the kids.

While my husband and I visit Kevin‘s regularly, for a good reason of course, this time we decided to do a tableside Cesar and several appetizers instead of entrees. This was of course another success!! The manager Bill does the tableside Cesar and you can tell he is an old hand at this, it was perfectly dressed with fresh ingredients and the portion was perfect for our intention. Are other appetizers including my husband‘s oysters were also on point. Of course we will go back!

I came in for dinner with my 5 year old son and husband. They offered chicken fingers for children and when my sons chicken was served to him it was raw inside. They were quick to apologize for it and brought out a better batch. Then my food came out, I ordered the filet medium and what I received was a steak that must’ve touched the grill for 1 minute and nothing more. It was completely raw inside and instead of complaining since we already had one huge problem happen,I just saved it to cook it longer at home. I would expect much more for a $140 meal, meaning everything be fully cooked. I have eaten in many high end restaurants before and this one definitely disappointed. My server was excellent though.

Everything was just absolutely classy... from the moment we were greeted and taken to our table until we finished our dessert. Our server (Gabrielle), the runners and the manager (Michael) frequently went above and beyond to make our experience perfect. Food proportions were appropriate, salads were chilled and entrees were temperature perfect. Just an overall great night out with my wife. Thank you everyone at Kevin's!

French onion soup was excellent - not too salty. Shrimp and crab claws were delicious. The fresh pasta should not be missed - particularly the pasta with shrimp, scallops and sun dried tomatoes - hum hum! All pasta and desserts are made on site - so come hungry! Great thing is they are open Monday's. Definitely a keeper.

Great evening. It was my wife and I's anniversary so I set up a charcuterie board and champagne to greet our party. Service was great all night, though once drinks were a little late in arriving. All in all a great night. The Frenchtoast bread pudding was outstanding.

Never a bad meal. Order the table side Caesar salad. Fantastic. Steak is awesome, seafood is great. Love the shrimp cocktail. Desserts are fantastic. Drinks are never empty. COVID restrictions are in full force and cleanliness is top notch.

First time under the new management. Outstanding food. The crab cocktail was the best. Veal special melted in your mouth. The wine list is a great value - no doubt due to the Manager Bill being a wine expert. You can not go wrong with anything he selects or recommends.

definitely one of the top restaurants in the Scranton-WB-Hazleton area and beyond! Great cocktail list, warm interior setting, unique (but not try-hard exotic) menu with great variety of choices. Servings could be slightly larger. Staff attentive, knowledgable.

We had a 6pm res that was for a bday dinner, we did not get our salad until 7:20 the offering of table side salad is wonderful but clearly there are times when this should not be offered as he kept running back & forth to the bar to wipe sweat & fix his glasses, this was very disturbing to the guests who had never been there before & not a mention of the guests birthday. Just an off night I’m sure but we left at 8:30 not the best service for a Tuesday night.

Ordered chicken Marsala. One piece of chicken was boiled with no seasoning and the other had seasoning. Chicken was over cooked and over linguine. Marsala sauce was so heavily diluted it was essentially discolored and flavorless water. The dinner was swimming in it. When we commented the server noted that it looked wrong when they served it. No one should have let it out of the kitchen much less served it. It was boiled chicken and pasta in water.

They brought me a new plate of linguine with marinara sauce (what I asked for as a replacement.) Marinara Sauce was old and over cooked.

My guest had meatball appetizer as dinner. Meatballs were cold.

Place was empty and service took forever.

This place used to be good but it’s off our list.
