"I really wanted to like this place. The decor and ambiance are great, staff are friendly, the (new?) menu looks excellent with lots of seafood, steaks, and chops, with prices that suggest you're in for a nice meal. Unfortunately, our experience was nothing but. Our waiter, while very nice and professional, seemed over worked with just too many tables to attend to. It was very hard to get his attention and when you did, he clearly was in a rush with so many other tables trying to flag him down. We ordered two of the Sirloin Steaks with "frites," medium doneness. What we got were too overly-charred pieces of meat that tasted like...burned meat. The char was so thick it gave me heartburn after the first bite. Maybe people like their steaks this way (?) but not me. My wife ordered the foie gras up-charge to go with the steak but it never came, the waiter claiming he did not hear her when she ordered. When asked whether we'd like to have them bring it out to go with the steak, we said yes....but again it never came. An appetizer we ordered also never came and at that point I told the waiter to just cancel the order and make sure it wasn't on the bill. I wanted to have a few more beers to drown out the char taste in my mouth but it was just too hard to get the waiter's attention to order...so we just got the check and left. I've been here a few times and each time is the same...guess I'll take this one off my list at this point."

"WOW!!! A newly remodeled Kingfish is absolutely terrific!!! We heard from friends that they did a remodel so we wanted to check it out. The restaurant interior is beautiful, chic, modern and cool. The bar is huge with seats going all the way around it. We had tons of choices with bourbons, and whiskeys. The Sazerac with Remy VSOP felt right for the occasion and with the New Orleans folk art. We had a prawn cocktail with HUGE jumbo prawns, I mean it was like we were in SF or NY. We tried the Foie Gras and it was delicious, cooked perfectly. We also had the Bone-in Ribeye and added Alaskan King Crab Legs. This is an absolute must try if you want to indulge. Melt in your mouth steak and wonderful King crab, enough said. We finished with the server's recommendation(Bri) and had Banana's Foster with Bread Pudding. She said they make each dessert's sauce to order and sure enough they did, caramel rum and cinnamon with some bananas. Service was attentive and the place was packed! Thank you guys, great job!"

"Service was extremely slow, items were forgotten or added when instructions were to omit. Drinks were not what was ordered and took a long time to correct. When food was brought out they did not know which one in the group ordered which dish. We had a party of seven and they did accommodate when the reservation was for 6 guests."

"I have been going to Kingfish for quite awhile and the quality of the food and service has started to be hit or miss. This time the dining experience was sub-par. The appetizers were over salty and one dish was cold. Plus they were out of one appetizer which is also a bad sign. The service was extremely slow. The place was fairly empty when we arrived and it took 30 minutes for the first dish to arrive and our cocktails were drained by that time. Our server was too busy chatting to the staff to notice that our cocktails were finished and that the knives had been removed after the first dishes so we were forced to attack the rock-hard butter with our forks. Unfortunately I bought two gift cards for the restaurant so will have to return to use the second one. Otherwise, I would not go back. The restaurant business is a tough one but there are so many dining choices that a business has to really maintain consistently good food and service in order to survive. I give places a few chances before I resort to calling it quits and Kingfish has sadly reached the limit."

"Michael has served us ( and me) both in groups and as a couple. He is not shy about making recommendations and letting you know what is new. We just let him pick the courses and surprise us. He asked what are tastes run to; and then he did a very nice job with the each dish. He also doesn't over-serve. He gives you the room and space; but is ready to come right back when you let him know you need something.
Of course, he couldn't do it without an excellent kitchen, chef and warm ambience. I have never been disappointed at Kingfish.

"I normally like Octopus, but this was awful and chewy, and definitely will not be ordering that again. On the other hand, the salad and oysters were very good.
The Brussels Sprouts were overrated, and the Warm Cabbage Salad was good."

"We went there for our anniversary - a little different for us as we go as a family with our 6 year old. The environment and waiter were incredibly kid friendly. One item of note we took an older bottle of wine a 2007 Justin, as the waiter was opening it the cork cracked; the waiter did an excellent job of still opening the bottle without loosing any of the cork into the bottle."

"We went for the New Year's Eve special and the food was amazing! The wine list is quite extensive and the wine we ordered was fantastic. As a New Orleans native-raised fan of food, I found the atmosphere was somewhat reminiscent of my hometown without necessarily labeling itself as a "New Orleans Restaurant". I think this place is a good take on the "New Orleans Restaurant Genre" . This is because New Orleans cooking really is a hodgepodge of different style and cultures, notably French and African. In modern times, most folks legitimately have trouble avoiding the addition of their own cooking style into "New Orleans cooking", hence its really hard to have a restaurant categorized as "New Orleans style" in the same way its a bit silly to have a restaurant done "Chicago" or "New York" style."

"The food was real good but the service attention by the wait staff was not good.
There was no sense of anticipation of our needs and Yesr when we asked for things. The came very slow.
The salads and entrees were brought out all at one time so you were eating everything at once.
Need better service and timing in good!"
