Great choice of healthy options, the presentation of the meal was very good. The entire table ordered the same thing Blackened (Grilled) Mahi Mahi. Wine pairings were okay, would have like to have seen a wine pairing idea from either the chef or staff.
The bread was almost a version of a pau de queso which was very good.

Overall recommend this for anyone with certain allergies or dietary restrictions, lots of options.

The restaurant is clean and bright, with comfortable seating and lots of room between tables. Heather, our server, was very knowledgeable about different dietary requirements and was able to configure our selections to meet those needs. The food was delicious and came in generous portions. Service throughout the meal was attentive but not overbearing. And the prices were quite reasonable. Combine all of this with the convenient location downtown and parking upstairs, and it results in a very successful enterprise.

Love your diverse selection of vegan and veggie options and use of fresh and many organic produce items. Was disappointed, however, that you would use a processed (with soy, no less) vegan burger. I was hoping for a nice homemade patty. Fortunately, I asked before ordering.

Hope you will work on that.

Thanks.

We were pleased with our first visit with you new menu. I believe the kitchen was a little backed up at a busy time. Not sure why.

We will return.

We had a 6:15 reservation and were seated immediately. The waiter came promptly to take our drink and food orders. We told him that we needed to be out by 7:45 to make a show. At 7:15, we called the manager to say that we had been there for 1 hour and had not received our food. At 7:30 our order was delivered to the table. I ordered their signature burger Medium Well. I received it RARE. I sent it back! Someone at the table shared some of their food with me. When the checks came, I was given a check for my Diet Coke...someone at my table took the check and ripped it up. THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE! I'm told by those at my table who were eating that their food was mediocre.

We were impressed the moment we walked in - color scheme, decorations, ambiance all impressive. Our waitress was skilled and very hospitable and able to answer all of our questions about menu items with ease. The food was excellent - we were especially pleased to see (we are vegans) that they have gone to the trouble to indicate on the menu if an item is Vegan, Vegetarian or Gluten-free. The vegan options we sampled left us eager to come back and try others. All six of our party were very pleased with our entire dining experience. Can't wait to go back to YTK.

Thank you for this awesome feedback! This is exactly what we were hoping for. A group of guests able to all eat at one table where there is food available for every type of dining. We will pass along your review to our teams as they love to hear from our guests. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

All the issues of a new restaurant and staff have not been smoothed out yet. Some good food, some undercooked food. Uneven service. Menu is promising for the future if they can execute well.

I think they will work out the kinks and get better. They seemed understaffed and some of the appetizer portions were very small for the price.

This was one of our favorite places to go frequently. Classy ,Table cloths & without being stuffy, & great food (Buratta). Jeffery at the door & coming around making sure everything was OK.
Now it’s nothing special. A step above 1st Watch. No Jeffery No Buratta. What were they thinking. Good Luck

My first time at LTK. I used to come to its predecessor Louis Modern. Wine was pricey ($11 for a modest pour of a modest Pinot noir). I ordered the BLT salad for $15. It consisted of some butter lettuce leaves, three slices of tomato, a dollop of buttermilk dressing and four slices of nice pepper bacon. While it was tasty, it's definitely not worth $15. These were lunch prices. The music was too loud. All in all, a disappointment.

I enjoyed the health conscious menu and modern marketplace decor. The space needs more lighting.
