Kingside Ratings and Reviews
Server was aloof, and inattentive.
Food--Eggs Benedict came with cold meat and cold hollandaise sauce.
Manager did take the cost of the Eggs Benedict off our bill, and I left a meager tip for the server.
Best advice is to stay away from this place.
We had been here a year ago and everything was good. Something has changed and not for the better.
I do a lot of business lunches, and the last two times I've been to Kingside the service has been awful. I've done several lunches at Kingside before, and have even booked small events there, and have never had issues, so I'm not sure what changed. The first "bad" experience I had, two of us were seated in a corner and it took at least 10 minutes for someone to notice we were there. After we ordered it took 40 minutes for our food to arrive - with no apology. It took forever again to get our check, again with no apology. We could help but laugh at how neglected we were - it was almost comical. Deciding that must have been a fluke, I returned a couple of weeks later to give them another chance. It was a little better, but when the time came to get the check, I had to ask for it multiple times. I finally stood up and walked back to find our server and ask him to give us our check (nicely), at which point he printed it and dropped it on our table without even looking at us or saying anything. All our jaws dropped. It was VERY rude. Needless to say, I won't be back.
Overall it was an Okay place. I have to say I was disappointed due to the fact that the menu online is vastly different from the one actually being used In the restaurant which is what I based my decision on as whether to go or not. The service was fast (too fast for me as I had planned for the pre-fixe menu which they no longer provide) and efficient. The ambiance is dim/cozy, and the seating area is spacious. The food (strictly speaking on what I ordered the pasta ragu) was tasty if minimal in size for the price and did not come with any side/table bread.
I eat here frequently and was a HUGE fan, but I'm sorry to report that the quality of the food has declined. The BLT w/ maple bacon was a rare treat - but no more maple bacon☹️; the grilled chicken sandwich used to come on a beautiful firm roll - now a pedestrian hamburger bun. Unless change come to Kingside, I won't be back.
Even though the restaurant was barely a quarter full, it took so long for our order that the server brought us an additional appetizer. The food is okay, not spectacular-- but more importantly, there just seems to be no management presence at all, and the staff is sloppy. Despite us checking in at the desk when we arrived, the restaurant then sent an email saying that I hadn't showed up for my reservation. It just doesn't appear that they know what they're doing.
Food was ok but service was terrible. Our waiter could not be bothered. Other tables around us were served first and we had to ask other servers to please bring our drinks, water, etc
I was staying at the Viceroy so I had a quick bite at the bar Thursday evening and it was a much better experience. Food was great and the bartender was amazing.
Had an exceptional Kale + Chicken Salad. The only negative was the noise level. The restaurant was virtually empty with the exception of 3 tables. However, one table was so loud we could not even hear ourselves speak. The sound proofing is clearly very bad...
This is a solid hotel dining room which does everything reasonably well and not as expensive as say Marea. But then the food and the service are not as good. The tables are reasonably spaced and if you want a place for an Ok lunch and a conversation with a friend it is a good option.
Had to wait 10 minutes until a server actually came to the table. There were a total of 6 employees talking to each other before anyone actually came to the table. The restaurant was not busy only had 3 tables. We almost left when the server finally came to the table.
The meal I ordered was not correct. And the excuse given was that the menu changed and the kitchen wasn't informed. Since we were going to a broadway show we didn't have time to have the kitchen remake the order. The meal was removed from the bill but the waiter's apology was not very sincere.
Service: waitress was attenive at first then no where to be found when it was time to get the check or to pick up our credit cards. The half chicken was very over priced and could have been split between two people. Very salty! I was so thirsty for the rest of the evening.
Went for a light evening meal. The hummus dip was great. Rest of our meal was salads and all of these were excellent. Good wine list. Service was so so. Had the treat of going to the rooftop bar after dinner and were able to take our wine from dinner up for the view. Would return again.
Cool bar area, great atmosphere. Great neighborhood place to meet a date for a drink or for drinks with friends after work, would definitely come here again for that. I'd pass on dinner, though. Place was not crowded but service was slow. I had a kale salad and a skirt steak, my friend had a ceasar and the fish. All was just OK, not horrible but not noteworthy. The food quality did not justify the price. Too many other dinner options in NYC with much better food.
Absolutely the most horrific "high end" resty I have been to. Their dinner menu lacks creativity and fails to offer their most popular items according to Yelp ( brined fried chicken and lobster Cobb salad). Available menu choices were very restrictive in terms of substitutions. It got to the point where I honestly thought the waitress was putting pre-made meals into a microwave. Tear it down and start all over. From my understanding chef Mike Murphy left long ago anyway.
