Our waiter was great. Food was on point. The frozen patron margaritas had me feeling myself. Sat down at 5 ate and was out by 630. Fast service and great food can’t beat it. Highly recommend.

The food was everything I expected, DELICIOUS!! The music very tasteful set the ambiance. The service was mediocre. The waiter forgot to put our order in for crab cakes and its
kinda like a one drink minimum because they only returned to the table to bring our entrees and then our ticket.

From the way in until the way out everyone was kind and welcoming! This is our first time at this establishment even though I don’t have a reservation the helpful security guard out front was able to help me make my reservation and get me right on it! As soon as I made my reservation online less than three minutes later my reservation was set and ready to go! Shadà and the team at the bar made made my fiancé and I feel like exclusive guest as it was our first time amazing drinks great service it was busy but what can you expect with such a “IT” place! Will definitely be going back thank you everyone for making our experience one to remember!

I will definitely come back and visit again. Kitchen and Kocktails is a nice chill spot to come with family or friends. The macaroni and cheese was my favorite. The D’USSE was bomb!!!!!!!!!!

Great food. I drove from San Antonio just for the experience. The service this time was not as stellar. My food was not complete when it arrived and I was also brought the wrong food

I’ve eaten here multiple times and yesterday was one of the worst times ever. I ordered the fried chicken and the batter was horrible and tasted like oil
I had a side of yams that weren’t cooked all the way so still hard
I had two sides of Mac n cheese both tasted like Kraft boiled Mac n cheese not baked at all just rushed.
Also had the cornbread that was crusty af and cold
Lastly the frozen douse peach drink was watery and came after my food.

So mad I wasted my time

Great food and drinks. Flavors burst in your mouth. It’s kind of loud so not a great place for catching up in conversation unless in a smaller area of the restaurant. My only complaint is that when you rsvp at anything you should not be asked to wait for 20-25 minutes to be seated; especially when you are on time for reservations AND especially when you have no indoors waiting area and it’s hot outside. Other than the one complaint I’d visit again and suggest to friends. It’s worth the visit as far as food and drinks; I was pleasantly surprised.

Everything was the bomb. I was diggin the whole vibe. Music from the DJ was crisp. Food was great. My only negative was I didn't get enough to eat for the price I paid. That's my only thing. I left still feeling a little hungry.

I had my doubts based on the mixed reviews but I really wanted to give this place a try. I made a reservation for 2, Sunday at 11:15 since that was the only slot available. Courtney was our server she was really friendly and helpful with food recommendations. We received our drinks and food right away, it was all delicious. My only complaint was the music it was way too loud inside because of the DJ. We were originally going to be seated in front of the DJ but asked if they had a quieter area. The hostess accommodated us and sat us in a second area on the side where the music was not too loud. My husband and I had a great experience will definitely return.

As always, the ambiance is great. Food is outstanding. Service is a little slow, but it's to be expected with the quality of food that comes out of the kitchen. Been several times and will return - as soon as I can get reservations.

I was finally able to get a reservation. I thoroughly enjoyed the service, food, and the environment. We will definitely go back and this time we will try the brunch. I wish they had a wider variety on the menu. The kocktails are fire and I do not drink very often. Will be back!!

The staff was extremely polite. The customer service was excellent. The food was amazing. There was a DJ there. That place is too small for the music to be as loud as it was. My Husband and I had to scream at each other

At first we were seated by the DJ and it was too loud. However they were able to move us towards the back. It was better, however the air circulation wasn’t that good in that area. Overall, food, service and ambiance was great!

I will say the reservation was ready on time. The music was so loud in a small building that we could not even talk because we could not hear each other. The waitress seemed to be extremely friendly with men more so than women. She would rub the men on their shoulders and back not knowing if the table had spouses there or just friends. Many seemed offended around us. My husband let it be known it made him uncomfortable. The food was okay. Sides not great, but protein cooked and seasoned well. More than likely will not return unless for take out

Food was good, just on the salty side. I had fried chicken, 2 sides, and a drink. It was overpriced in my opinion, especially the drink. I would still go back though to support. I enjoyed the band.

I went a week ago before my last reservation. I had an awesome waiter that made sure everything was good. This experience was much different. The drinks taste different. Not in a good way. I order grilled Lobster and the Hennessy season and I received a fry lobster and no seasoning I asked for. It was remade and still did not get the Hennessy season. I didn’t even complain again. I normally don’t have to send items back to the kitchen. One of my guest ordered fried pork chops and she said here were over cooked and too dry. When she made her complaint to the waiter the response is not what I expected. Instead of remaking it or offering something new she was only charge for one pork chop. When we come out and spend your money you want to be happy with and enjoy your food. This was my third visit and first not enjoying my food and drinks. Each visit I’m so spending at least $80-$100 dollars. Sadly I have to take a break from coming. When I return I hope to see the one waiter that was so awesome. Ladarius is respectful and made sure all of my items were perfect and we were good. My last visit I had to repeat and ask for the extra side of Mac N cheese I ordered the first time. I was so excited about each reservation I made and brought first timers out and they didn’t experience when I bragged about the first two time. Not knocking the restaurant just sharing my last experience and I hope this helps to improve services for guest.
Thanks

Cornbread was dry, pork chops were too thin to be fried hard, I do not recommend. Fish was delicious, other sides were good.

First time going after hearing about it from two friends. One recommended the catfish which I had blackened. It was very delicious. The collard greens and black-eye peas were disappointing. The fried cauliflower was tasty. Ended the meal with a Peach Dusse. It was so good! Packs a punch! The waiter quoted $10.00 for the small size but was charged $14.00. Even though there is not a set dress code, the website did specify certain apparel not allowed but we saw some of the female customers wearing questionable outfits.
