    Extremely loud. The entrees were well seasoned (salty), but the sides were bland. The drinks were expensive and watered down. Not worth what you spend.

    Very good food. Was very thrown off about charging my wife and I separate checks, and adding gratuity to each check. Not sure if I would dine again for that reason.

    The floor was dirty, trash on the floor, my table had fingers prints on it, the music was too loud, I had to yell to talk to my husband, and my drink glass had a label on it. It just wasn't clean looking, I noticed the bartender wiping his nose and fixing drinks, that part was super nasty!!!! The food was delicious! First and last visit!

    The worst experience I think I have ever had. I wait an hour for a appetizer and when I asked the bartender "Does it take 40 mins for a appetizer?" He says "it's only been 30 min My boy Relax" I almost lost it. No manager around just pure disorganization. On top of me having a reservation at 830 I left outta there at 10 and hadn't gotten anything but a water. We just got up and walked out. And nobody cared. I hope the owner reads this because I don't think he has any idea what is going on in his business. And if he does and it goes unattended then shame on him. I would give it less stars if I could. That was just plain dispicable service . Completely ruined our evening.

    I booked this restaurant for my sister’s birthday and was completely disappointed. Where do I begin? Reservation was at 7:45 pm and we were sat literally next to the door. Manager wouldn’t move us. Dress code is a joke! Website and open table insinuates very strict dress code. We were completely overdressed. Even the baby was in his Sunday’s best. However the other customers were dressed like they just left a late night club. The restaurant was out of stuff. The bartender walked out on them. Table was dirty. They kept bringing us dirty plates. It was over an hour wait just for appetizers and cocktails, food took at least another 30 minutes. Manager came to the table once after the bartender walked out on them. Service was trash except for LaTia. She was amazing and really tried her best to fix all the issues. Website says 15% gratuity. Bill had added 20% and had three other suggested percentages. Manager refused to come back out to address why I have a mandatory gratuity with no mandatory customer service. Do not waste your time or money!!! Go elsewhere.

    I brought my daughter here for her birthday expecting a wonderful experience just like any other time I come. This is the 1st time I was very disappointed with the service. We literally had to wait 2hrs before we received our food. We got there at 4:15 we didn’t get our food until a little after 6. Then once I got my food for it had taken so long I was expecting some mouth watering chicken not at all. It was dry af. I don’t know what was going but it was people who came pretty much around the same time and they had ate there food and was leaving by the time we got a update on where our food was and when it was coming. Can’t blame the waitress but whom ever was running the kitchen drop the ball big time. Only reason I have 2 stars is because the waitress was nice. Definitely would have given the kitchen a 1 star if it would have given me the option to rate the kitchen and waitress separately.

    The food was amazing, flavorful and presented well! We ordered the steak and eggs (steak was so tender it cut with a butter knife) and the chicken & peach cobbler waffles. The frozen peach Dusse totally set off the meal. Our server CJ was friendly and insightful. The whole place is a vibe and we definitley can't wait to return.

    The food took over an hour to come out. Then my entree and sides came out 45 minutes apart. I even mentioned it to a manager who did nothing. Extremely over priced for the level of service and quality of food. I wouldn’t recommend dining here. Your money would be better spent at a true fine dining establishment such as Eddie V’s or Nick and Sams.

    We sat for 7 mins before being greeted by our server. The server, Jailyn, did not exceed our expectations. She took our order and didn't come back until we were halfway done with our meal. We ordered drinks and we watched our drinks sit at the bar for at least 5 mins until the bartender himself brought them to us. Not to mention she went to the bar while our drinks were there and didn't even bring them to us. The bartender was so kind that he gave us a free shot due to the lack of service Jailyn gave us. Once Jailyn saw we both had a shot, she decided to come to our table to ask where we got them from. All she provided us with was napkins and a glass of water our entire stay. Her service was complete trash. We asked to speak to a manager and we couldn't even get a manger. Jaily told us he was preparing for closing so he couldn't attend to his paying customers! The customers that are keeping his restaurant open. That's not very manager like, but I will never be back nor recommending anyone to Kitchen + Kocktails.
