    While the food is visually beautiful at Kin, overall we felt that they were trying too hard and didn't quite hit the mark of an excellent tasting menu experience. None of the dishes hit the "oh my God, this is amazing" mark. There seemed to be too much going on in the dishes,, too many flavors and/or ingredients. The closest dish to this was the dessert, a kind of a Pavlova with fall fruits. The non-alcoholic beverages were very good, but again there were a lot of flavors competing for attention. The good news is that, compared to LA or NY prices, Kin is very reasonable for a very good dinner.

    I had heard such amazing things about Kin and had been looking forward to going for a long while. Maybe it was this particular menu or maybe it was an off night, or maybe our expectations were too high, but we were quite disappointed. The service was outstanding. The food was quite inventive and presentation exquisite, but honestly not particularly tasty. While it was a pleasure to the eye, it was bland to the tongue, really lacking flavor, quite underwhelming. The dining room is also quite stark. You feel like you're in a hotel conference room rather than a comfortable, personal space. The modern aesthetic is fine, but this felt cold. I'm glad we went, but we won't be returning.

    I was initially a bit apprehensive about going to KIN. I knew we would be dining at a communal table with approximately twenty-eight strangers…an introvert’s worst nightmare. My worrying was all for nothing. At my request, my guest and I were seated at the end of the table. We happened to be seated at the end near the open kitchen area and got to see the staff prepare our plates. It was great fun to watch! The food was excellent. The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating. The service was impeccable. I also loved the Art Haus Cocktail Bar. I look forward to stopping in for drinks with friends. I am happy to recommend KIN to anyone who would like a unique and delicious dining experience.

    The food was absolutely outstanding. Every bite was the delight. Really, really great experience start to finish. Only issue is you are required to socialize with your table mates as seating is at a communal table. Not a problem per se, it was just incredibly loud and difficult to hear. Can’t wait for our next visit.

    We always enjoyed our dinners at Kin. It is quite a production! We love the staff and how they explain the reasoning behind each dish and the ingredients they use. The food is always excellent and the presentation is amazing. It’s like eating food art! We definitely recommend going with friends, since the communal table makes it more conducive to sharing the meal with others.

    We were blown away by our Saturday night Supper Club experience. As a gluten free dinner (over 20 years) it was amazing to feel safely accommodated and not miss out on anything! The teff bread was easily the BEST gluten free bread I have ever had, I can’t stop talking/thinking about it! The NA beverage pairings were just insanely incredible too, so imaginative and complex, beyond my wildest dreams and unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Each course was an absolute masterpiece, we are still in awe. Definitely one of the best meals of our lives and I am so grateful for the experience!!!

    Come early, check out the art and have a cocktail in the lounge area. The tasting menu changes every five weeks so find one that sounds good and reserve. On the current menu (early Sept) the melon soup stood out as especially good. Service is relaxed and informative...they provide an overview at the start of each dish. The wine pairings were good...but you can also opt for the non-alcohol drinks...a friend did and she found them to be enjoyable as well. Communal seating at long tables. They sent us home with cookies for our morning coffee. Very nice evening in a beautiful space. It is clear the team enjoys their work creating innovative dishes for happy diners.

    I went to KIN with a friend to celebrate my 32nd birthday and it was BY FAR one of the best experiences I've ever had. We met so many lovely people and the ambiance, art and storytelling were beyond beautiful. This was my first time experiencing a chefs tasting and it was such a memorable experience. There's a reason KIN is winning awards. All of their employees were kind and accommodating, the building is beautiful and the stories behind each meal helped me fall in love with what food was meant to do, nourish your body AND soul. Thank you again, KIN!

    I expected great going in but the whole experience, right at arrival until leaving, was outstanding. The staff respected my food issues and with each dish placed in front of me, I was informed what ingredient was NOT included. Delicious food prepared beautifully. My husband and I were very impressed. We will definitely plan a future date night at KIN.

    Amazing food and fantastic services. The albacore dish was the best dish of the night. the service was well thought out and I felt like I was having a meal at an old friends house. Only criticism is I wish the lighting was a little better. I loved each dish and was very impressed to learn that each dish was prepared by a different person on the kitchen team. The chef was approachable and very generous with his time. The meal was well put together and each dish felt like it was a needed step in the progression of the meal. The execution of individual elements of each dish were almost flawless. The Albacore dish was amazing each bite I was discovering something new. The melon soup had refreshing, clean, crisp flavors, with amazing textures added with the melon balls and crispy prosciutto. The mushroom dish was my least favorite dish the chard mushrooms were dry and the broth needed to be more balanced with a little more salt and less heat. The beef dish was the most straight forward dish of the night. It had amazing textures with the different preparations of corn. The beef was cooked to a medium to mid-rare level. It was slightly one note and need an additional element of spice or acid in the dish but I am being very picky. The desert was gorgeous and filled with different textures from the fresh fruit, flaky tart crust, and balanced tart filling. Overall a wonderful meal. I made friends and memories and I will be back but next time with my husband to share this wonderful experience with.

    My first time at Kin with my sister in town to visit. It was amazing food with a five course meal that was exquisite in all courses. Really enjoyed trying different things that I wouldn’t have even thought of, and hello gooseberries where have you been? The service was excellent, with the staff very attentive. Communal tables were fun to potentially meet new people. Great for special occasions!

    Dining at Kin was one of the most unforgettable dining experiences I've had...anywhere. The food is inspired and exquisite. The rabbit was most memorable and absolutely delicious. We were a little curious about how the community table element would be. However, it quickly became one of our favorite parts of the experience. We met lovely couples and even ended up exchanging contact information after dinner. Remi McManus and Kris Komori have created a truly unique culinary oasis in Boise. Absolutely worth every penny. Highly recommend.
