    We dined before an event we were attending. We had several appetizers, tuna tartar, beef tartar, oysters and the burrata salad and finished with the burger and baby back short ribs. Presentation of the food was amazing and the serving size was perfect.

    The service was non-existent and the restaurant was half empty …. Took 35 minutes for a server to come to the table. Didn’t have drinks until after an hour - and they didn’t have half of the cocktails listed on their menu. And then 1.5 hours for the first sign of food. The manager stepped in and tried to save our experience which was appreciated, but way too late. It was a terrible experience for a special 40th bday brunch.

    We made a reso inside. When we arrived 15 mins early we were told the inside section wasn’t open yet and we’d have to sit outside to start. I was assured we’d be moved inside before our reso start time. 10 min after our reso start time I had to ask 4 times to be moved inside. It was clear they had seated many others indoors before moving us despite me asking several people to move us. The hostess told me she had to “clear the line” before we could be seated and I reminded her we had a reso which she didn’t seem to care about. Service was slow and again we had to ask multiple times for our table to be wiped. The saving grace was lovely server who stepped in to get us our bill and was super kind when our server had clearly forgotten about us. I recognized him from times before when he served my husband and I, and was grateful he made the end of the meal smooth. I was so looking forward to eating at KŌST again but the was not at all the experience I have come to expect. Disappointing, save the one server.

    It is definitely high end. The outdoor view is beautiful and great for pictures. The service was a slow, there's were kids in the pool splashing water which got on our clothes and shoes, and was a bit loud. The food didn't have the greatest proportions but some elements of the food were good. Waited around 25 minutes to get our bill and the machine didn't work because connectivity issues 4 times. Overall the place is great for pictures and made me feel like i was at a resort but the food and service was not that great.
