    The food was good! It was delicious and the portions were huge. I ordered a seasonal bourbon cocktail that I had to send back because not only did it taste like a glass of lime juice, the glass was half way filled. I then ordered an old fashioned that was good, but the glass was less than half way filled which was disappointing. With the ice cube taking up most of the glass, I only got a few sips of the $13 drink. The service was not the best. The server could not give details on any menu items. She spoke in an almost whisper, and had to be asked to repeat herself several times. The meal I ordered was a "gameday special" but I was charged the normal price. She told me she could not fix it and to call the manager for a refund..

    This was our first time dining here. What I liked was that if you wanted a salad, but, didn't want a GIANT salad, you could get 1/2 of a salad, at a very reasonable price. The Southern Quinoa Salad was good. and plenty to eat. The other person with me got the hand breaded Kenwood chicken breast. It was good also. The fries are nice and thin and crisp, not soggy at all. We will definitely go back. Our service was excellent.

    I was excited to try a new place but I was very disappointed with the outcome. After we were seated, we waited almost 5 minutes for a server to come to our table. I should have followed my urge to get up and leave. Drinks took a while to get. Food didn’t take too long. I was told the wings were very popular and tasty. They tasted like they came out of a bag from the freezer. I ordered the hot garlic sauce and it was pretty spicy. I ran out of my drink while eating the spicy wings. I could not find our server. She did not walk past our table for over 10 minutes. After our food was delivered, no one ever came back to check how it was or if we needed anything. We did. We were not given ketchup for our fries or the refills we so desperately needed. Once I finally got a drink, it took a very long time after that to get our check. I was shocked at the $80+ for an appetizer, two entrees and two drinks. I am usually pretty forgiving when it comes to service and understaffed restaurants (not sure if they were or not). But the less than par service was never addressed. We were not apologized to for the wait or thanked for our patience, which made me think this is how it normally is there. We will not return.

    Service was very nice. Atmosphere was urban without a lot of decor. We sat inside, while outside dining looked better. Appetizers were very good, but entree (steak frites) was dry and tough and not worth the cost. Food needed more seasoning in general.

    Food was just ok for what it was, very overpriced. I could have gotten a better meal for somewhere else for the same price. Basically just some tables in a bar. Some crazy wrestling show on the TV, very weird while I am eating my overpriced food. My son didn’t even finish his food or take to go, just left it. Server very absent, didn’t seem to care if we were there. Some other guy took over mid way, no explanation. Again, none of this would bother me, if I were at a bar, but was paying for a restaurant experience. And of course, we tipped 25% because apparently that is the norm now, even for bad service and you get dirty looks if you don’t…..

    Service was great. Nachos were out of this world. I got the fish and chips special and just was not impressed with the fish. It was very fishy and overly salty batter. Not a complainer, I just want them to do well! Love the place and the vibe. Service and all staff we encountered while in the restaurant were amazing. My husband absolutely loved his burger. Really good fries too. Looking forward to going back!

    Great drinks, great service. Three of us ordered salads, which were good. A friend ordered pasta primavera and didn’t have a pleasant experience, but the manager/chef discounted the meal for her. We were happy overall with our experience and it was the perfect noise level for us to talk and catch up. It was also 80s night, so music was great.

    We had reservations but they told us they didn’t have any space inside for that (even though I could see that they did). We had to cram ourselves into a booth. My husband had a hair in his sandwich which was comped. The food was good but I had a much better experience the first time I dined here

    Loved the outdoor area and vibes of this place! Service was great and food and drink came out quick. I ordered the Paloma which was delicious! Food was subpar—ordered the fettuccine carbonara which wasn’t good. Pasta in a soupy no taste sauce with a lot of onions and little bacon. Not what I would think of when ordering a carbonara! I would come again but probably order something else to eat in hopes it might be a better experience.

    We came to check out North high Kitchen & Bar on Sunday for lunch. They had a good menu for food and cocktails. Plus, good beer selections with IPAs. We sat outside on the patio. Went for the Hopes West Coast IPA, Breezy cocktail, and Prosecco. All were perfect on the patio. We decided to start with some appetizers: the jar-a-pickles, blistered Brussels, and beer battered pickles. It was a lot of food for 4 people. That was almost a meal itself. The Brussel sprouts were good - bit oily. My husband loved the pickles. For lunch order - that’s where the issues occurred- burrata caprese with meat, a burrata caprese with salmon; a burger with side salad and a yellowfin tuna. The server left and then came back - no salmon We were the first part of lunch. How could you be out of salmon? Go get some more or tell people before they order. After lunch, the server came back, we told her we wanted to get their donuts for dessert. The server said “ they don’t have any.” My response, “it’s your only dessert” If you don’t have that dessert offer another or offer a coupon to come back. For a new restaurant not to have menu items is not a good sign. Or servers must tell people when they sit down what items they don’t have on the menu - prior to ordering.

    The Fried Pickle app was way too greasy & salty. I got the Hot Nash with Brussel Sprouts. The sandwich was just okay. I expected it to be spicy but it was also really salty, & the Brussel Sprouts were dry and over cooked. The wine pours were so, so small. There was supposed to be music on the patio, starting at 7p. We left at 7:30p & the band was still setting up. Hopefully others have a much better experience! Personally, not worth the prices & I will not be going back.

    Hanging out with friends on a Friday evening and decided to try the new restaurant in Kenwood..We made a reservation on Open Table but the hostess at the desk told us we would have to wait because they were busy (that part was confusing but I just assume they were young and their inexperience played a role with that). Our server was nice. We were very happy with our food. From the flavor to the presentation was awesome..Chef Miles even came out to greet a few of the guests and to get feed back..We even saw him bringing food out to the guests (helping the servers). The ambiance was nice, it would be nice if they arranged the inside tables/chairs that are sitting by the door to the outside seating a different way or not sit anyone there at all. That’s a high traffic walking area and the people sitting their are continually being bumped and people are standing over their food while eating..I will definitely return because the food was great and the manager was even walking around greeting guest and serving also..Great team work..
