Kingside Ratings and Reviews
The food was mediocre at best. Three people at our table sent the burger back. The burger had zero flavor and the meat wasn't seasoned at all. The crispy artichokes came out soggy and there was no sauce to go with it. Would've been great with an aioli instead of just lemon. The lemon made it even more soggy. The kids pasta with butter and cheese came out drenched in butter and the pasta was all stuck together and hard. Service lacked as well. We had to hunt down our server because she brought all the apps out and no sharing plates. I have worked for Scott Gerber at one of his bars and was shocked that the service was so bad. We went through a lot of training before we were even allowed on to the floor. Service was always number one at all of his bars. Needless to say, we won't be back.
Very frustrating. Even with reservation, getting seated was slow with plenty of empty tables. Host was completely rude. Had 3 different waiters for reasons that were never explained. And in nearly empty restaurant they sat us by the only other tables with people.
The panacakes and bacon are delicious but not cheap....we ordered 3 coffees upon arrival and they took about 20 minutes to make despite there only being a handful of people in the restaurant. The almond croissant was poor, and service was really terrible for the price you pay.....
How I’m treated during Restaurant Week or at a special prix fixe meal determines whether or not I return to a place. At Kingside, the two-item $29 prix fixe lunch did not limit the hospitality or curtail the service. We enjoyed cauliflower soup to start and then I had a scrumptious serving of roasted scallops; my companion relished her perfectly cooked skirt steak. Service was pleasant, not overbearing. We’ll return for more.
Totally enjoyed our Sunday brunch at Kingside--fantastic, fresh food--good portions, cooked perfectly. Had plenty of room, and the noise level was just right so we could talk and hear each other. The eggs florentine, eggs benedict and the fritatta were all winners (and came with a small salad on the side). Loved that the hollandaise was hot, not too heavy, and served on the side. Fresh fruit cup was generous and included blueberries, blackberries and strawberries--yum. Maple bacon, breakfast potatoes and the sausage were also delicious. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly. We felt welcome and totally unrushed, which was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend!
I've been here a few times in the past and had better food. Salad and sides were not as evenly seasoned as they should be, couldn't really taste my Brussels sprout salad, and the mushrooms and roasted sprouts were over-sauced and salted. Our server was nice, place was mostly empty on a Friday at lunch, kind of weird for midtown. Better for Happy Hour and dinner I think.
Arrived to practically empty restaurant. Maitre d greeted us then immediately walked away and dealt with other stuff (including refilling somebody's coffee). Then dealt with a customer issue....then dealt with another customer who came in after our party (he'd left something behind)...then walked away again without speaking to us...in the end I walked to other member of staff and asked for us to be seated (5 minutes waiting by now). All the while 2 or 3 other members of staff were wandering around. We were finally seated...no apology. Ambience not great. No music. Food was great. Pancakes excellent. But lame, rude greeting left a bad taste: If we had known another place in the neighborhood we would have walked, but were with family and didn't want to make it unpleasant for them. Overall a sorry experience.
I always enjoy going to Kingside. In the past I have dined at breakfast but this was my first lunch. The menu is nice, great options and good value. My salad could have used a bit more seasoning but was otherwise fresh and tasty. The standout was the kind service. Our server was a pro and was quite friendly and warm. And the bartender jumped up to seat us and the host team was outgoing and so nice! Impressed by this team, they give great service and should be proud.
Chose this restaurant for Christmas dinner and service was shockingly disappointing. Thirty minutes after ordering a bottle of wine, our appetizers arrived before anyone at the table had a beverage. Plates of finished courses we not cleared. Scallops and steak were amazing, but something needs to be done with service.
Made rsvp and host told us she wasn't honoring our reservation. Had to ask for manager. Said they were too busy. Then manager seated us. Felt like host wanted to go home. I get it. It was xmas day. But there were other restaurants I could have chosen that were open. If you don't want to work just close the shop.
We go to the Landmarc regularly and were expecting more of the same great food and service. What a disappointment. The real problem had to do with the deplorable service, which affected our entrees and our whole experience. As we sat down, another table was loudly complaining about the fact that their waiter had gone MIA and their orders were wrong. Their food came out shortly after, but they left. Then it was out turn to be ignored. It took forever for our server to take our drink orders. We asked three times for water. He managed the coffee but forgot the other two drinks until prompted again. Then he disappeared. Once our food finally did show up, one dish was cold--it was the egg sandwich, which was supposed to have melted pimento cheese and hot sausage. And one of the side dishes didn't come out. Usually, a server will check back in on you once entrees have been served...and if anything, that happens too often. Not this guy. I left the table to find him--to find anyone, honestly. The staff were completely inattentive and largely absent. After finally tracking him down, he didn't apologize or anything. I'd thought he would follow me back to my table, pick up the cold food and take it back to the kitchen. Instead, he kept talking to another server. So after a few minutes, I got up and went back over again. After several attempts, I did finally get our forgotten side dish (bacon) and a replacement entree... They clearly microwaved the egg sandwich. The brioche turned hard, and the whole thing reminded me of a sad, vending machine sandwich. "Disgusting" is too complimentary a word to describe it. For $18, the vending machine version would have been more palatable. The bacon--it was cold and greasy once we finally got it. Like that other table, we just wanted to cut our losses and leave. But of course... We couldn't track down anyone for our bill. We did finally spot someone, but she was dealing with the table behind us, who were also complaining. Avoid this place.
We arrived at 10:54 am with a reservation for brunch. We were told to wait as brunch didn't start till 11. This took over 20 minutes. Once we were finally seated & greeted, we ordered the avocado toast, egg pizza & fruit salad (Nothing crazy). The food took forever to come out. The food was amazing when it did finally come out. However, yet again our check took forever.
This was such a disappointing experience. Service was absolutely horrible, the staff was not only rude but extremely slow and inattentive. I've been to Kingside many times for dinner, this was my first time having brunch there. It was very underwhelming and I would not go back. There was lack of staff, tables needed to be bused and things were left unattended.
Group of four needed a place to eat quickly before a show at Carnegie hall. We made a reservation for 7 but called to see if we could get a spot at the bar to eat quickly. Even though we arrived at 7:15 the hostess made sure to get us a table in the bar and took our order very quickly so that we would make our show. Burger was very good and the kale and quinoa salad was excellent. Also had an amazing drink. Hot tequila with cider since it was freezing out. Very cool vibe. Beautiful bar design. Extremely accommodating staff. Will definitely be back
