Fantastic meal and experience. Thank you!
Outstanding evening, music a little loud.
Waitress extremely accommodating, pleasant, and as she noted-just finished training.
Complementary salad(anniversary) was wonderful as was entrees, oysters and wine.
We will be back!
Great first time experience, delicious food and excellent service! Can't wait to go again!
The Kennedy is always a wonderful experience with fresh and local produce! All staff is adhering to all the regulations of Covid 19 which I also appreciate!
It was a great dinner. Great cocktails. Great service. Good farm to table small plates and large plates. Just as good as anything in Greenville and you don’t have to drive!
This was our first time at your establishment! The service was excellent! And the food was amazing! We will most definitely return.
Very underwhelmed. First we ate in the outside covered parking lot.....noisy, flies so that didn't help. Ordered brussel sprouts and crab fried rice. Sprouts were too soaked in balsalmic and very salty. Fried rice lacked egg and was very mushy and had celery...ugh. My son had ribeye which was good and cooked well. My duck confit was marginal. Small and not very good at all. Best part of my meal was the dessert. Would not return as overpriced and really not very good.
Excellent selection of Bourbons and rye whiskies as well as a very trendy, locally based menu. The staff was most welcoming and excellent in their service. We just had 3 small plates and that was enough for the two of us. We will definitely be back to try other things on the menu. Chris, the bartender was a stand out!
Wow - what a great experience. Wonderful service and food was delightful. Savored eat bit with a unique blend of flavors. We could not of had a better experience.
Chris at the bar was awesome, friendly and a wealth of knowledge - A great bartender !!!
Always a lovely experience, great service and hands down best oysters in the upstate!
First time dining at The Kennedy and can for sure say this is going to be a regular dining destination from now on. The drinks, food, and service were nothing less than perfect. Thanks to the bartender Chris and the manager Franco for their incredible hospitality. Can’t wait to see you guys again soon.
The food was delicious, our fish came out not completely cooked.. but the chef recooked it and it was perfect. Wine service is lacking, presentation is always a must. 1/2 priced bottles of wine though, and ours was delicious. Will return, excited to return.
The most awesome food!! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the food is delicious and the ambiance is perfect!
We loved everything we were served including the grilled octopus and the scallops. In fact at the chef was able to make the scallops dish a keto meal by substituting the starch with mushrooms. The meal was absolutely fabulous and will return there every time we are in Spartanburg, SC
We loved our dining experience at The Kennedy. We always do. The food - its preparation, presentation, and taste - is superb. And, this time, Jaime made a special dessert, which was delicious!
Very cute space, the drinks were good, food left something to be desired, the service was great and the staff was friendly.
Great Service, Even Better Food. Ambiance was Perfect. Excited about next Visit.
We enjoyed our entire experience - we went on a Tuesday evening, and it was very quiet. The bartender, Chris was very engaging and table service was excellent. The dishes were creative and the dessert was light and sweet. We will be back!
So delicious and creative! Chef Jamie is not afraid to bring the flavor. The whole experience far exceeded my expectations. Our server, Evan was extremely attentive and accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are anywhere near Spartanburg.
The Trout Appetizer and Apple Upside Down cake were really good. I had the fried chicken special. I didn’t think it was cooked enough, so they cooked it a little more and it was really good. When they brought back the plate, they had given me a fresh biscuit and vegetables which was a nice touch.
The food was delicious and the staff very attentive. Definitely worth the trip!
Great food, even better service! Always a pleasure to dine here. And... the best craft cocktails in Spartanburg!
Celebrating an engagement
The food and service were great. The portions were bigger than we were expecting and filling. I highly recommend the crispy potatoes and the grilled ribeye.
The menu was a bit pricey but very good food.
On time seating for my reservation and very friendly place.
My husband and I absolutely love The Kennedy. After we discovered this place a year ago, it has become our go to date night place. The chef’s table is by far the BEST seat in the house. Being able to interact with the chefs who are making your food and watching the magic happen is an incredible experience. The food is delicious, the portions are perfect, the decor is gorgeous, and the staff is phenomenal.
Amazing food and service. High quality. You get what you pay for. Very special place and wonderful for a special occasion for two or four people.
Great food and awesome service. Our second visit and we were not disappointed.
Very cool restaurant, enjoyed a great Valentine's dinner there this week. Decorated with a cool art deco vibe, nice craft cocktails list, the food was fabulous and service very good as well. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion or with a group where you can share plates and enjoy all the delicious menu items. Will definitely be back soon.
Our first time dining at the Kennedy. Options were innovative but not weird. Wine list was focused with good options. Service was attentive. We look forward to returning.
Very knowledgeable staff and wonderful service.
Delicious as always! I love the lighting and the atmosphere!!
I had never been here before but wanted to find a special place for my mom’s birthday and retirement celebration dinner. Anna was our server and was, hands down, one of the best servers we’ve ever had. Her recommendations were SPOT ON. I had the duck confit special and my mom had the bass special. She then recommended the spoon bread.....let me tell you....it has no right being that good! I’m not a dessert person, but oh my word.....it was divine. And the coffee!!! Do yourself a favor and just go check it out. A big plus for us was the mocktails which made my mom feel extra special (since she doesn’t drink).
The only reason I didn’t give the food 5 stars was because the duck confit and crispy brussel sprouts were pretty salty, like to the point I couldn’t finish the whole plate. No, I didn’t tell the waitress because everything else was soooo spot on. Everyone can have an off night on one part of a dish!! But still good, nonetheless.
My mom and I had a memorable evening and definitely plan on coming back. 10/10 would recommend.
The Kennedy is arguably the best Dining experience in Spartanburg. The quality and care that goes into each dish is second to none in the area. During 4 visits across nearly 2 years I have never had something that wasn't delicious or left me regretting my choice. Make no mistakes, it can be expensive to dine here. But the quality of the product and the experience has made it worth it every time. I only wish I could afford to dine here regularly, but for now special occasions will suffice. From this most recent experience I recommend the crispy potatoes, the pork belly, and the Chocolate spoon bread.
Excellent choice of entrees (fish. etc) and preparation
Great restaurant. The food was delicious and Allister was great. Top notch service and we will definitely go back again!!!
The food was excellent. Our waitress was superb. I've been there many times, however this time I experienced the old wine by the glass scheme. (I am familiar with this from some other bars). I ordered a Malbec by the glass. It was excellent. The second one was vinegar as if the bartender was trying to finish off another bottle of something. I sent it back. The waitress smelled it and agreed. The third glass was again my Malbec. I order one more and got something entirely different. Not what I expect from one of my favorite restaurants.
