Kingside Ratings and Reviews

Discerning native New Yorkers beware! Really disappointing all around. I have come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a few occasions and can finally say that it really is a huge disappointment. One would expect more from Marc Murphy.
At 9:30 PM with the bar fairly full with hotel guests the restaurant was empty and we waited 15 minutes to find a hostess. Server seemed busy but only a handful of tables were occupied. Ordered an appetizer, two entrees and a side. Entrees came, empty appetizer plate(s) remained throughout our meal, and the side came after the check arrived. The serve said he wondered what happened to our fried? Isn't that his job? No apology at all from the server. This is a must miss!
Delay in service of drinks and food appr ...
Delay in service of drinks and food approached ridiculous levels. It took 30 minutes to receive our drink order. The food took 1 hour and 15 minutes to deliver (from the time we ordered until it was placed on our table). The restaurant was not even busy. We have been to Kingside multiple times. It is conveniently located and never busy. But after this experience, I don't believe we will be back.

Restaurant was empty yet we had to wait for our reservation. Every single thing we ordered was wrong. They brought the appetizer along with entree and then waited an uncomfortably long time for the entree to be brought out again. All this the privilege of paying $36 for 3 small pieces of chicken. Very expensive. Next time I'll stick to Red Eye Grill or Molyvos.

We arrived at the Viceroy on thanksgiving day. We figured that after a full day of travel, eating in the hotel restaurant was a great idea. Our server was very kind, but when the kitchen became slow and nothing was coming out, he wouldn't really make eye contact with us. I did not eat, but my husband sort of nibbled around and did his best to not gag at the coagulated, cold gravy served with the turkey. We did notice that our plate was free of mashed potatoes, so we asked where they were and after he was done pushing his food around, they PR ought a dish of runny purée. Terribly disappointing, and this, our first night of a near week's stay at the hotel. Needless to say, we won't go back.

Poor service - waiter was either uninformed, disinterested, or both. Never checked on us to see if the food was ok. Starters and drinks were pretty unspecial. The entrees were tasty but the poor service overshadowed the evening.

Very much enjoyed our early dinner before a show at Carnegie Hall. Very reasonably priced, absolutely delicious food & cocktails and very cute decor. I will gladly go back and try the many other menu items I had trouble deciding between and will happily recommend to my friends & family looking for a good restaurant near Carnegie Hall.

We chose Kingside for a post TCS NYC Marathon get together. Kingside is ascetically attractive and looks to have a very fun vibe. The bar area is beautify and the decor is clean and sharp looking!! Sadly that is where it stopped for us. We were (are) a family of 6. We were getting together from far and wide to celebrate 2/6 of the family running the marathon; a big day in NYC. The excitement stopped there. The restaurant was less than 1/4 full with plenty of wait staff (not meant to bash them) but the food took forEVER to arrive. The orders were simple (as is the menu, which was why we chose Kingside) and we had hoped for faster/better service. After asking when would the food arrive, we pushed our chairs back and bonded with the next table (the only other marathoners in the restaurant). Line would be around the block if this issue could be repaired. Too many other options in Manhattan for a repeat; sorry Kingside.

I am not sure in what world this place would be recommended but WARNING: this is not a place to go if you want service, food, or a smile. People were leaving the restaurant as we walked in. There were three groups in front of us and no server, hostess, or employee to be found for 25 minutes. Finally a server walked by and ignored everyone who had reservations asking about being seated. There were people standing up waiting for someone to take their order. They had actually been seated and were waiting 30 minutes to have their order taken. Beyond ridiculous.

I have wanted to try Kingside for a while. So when a friend was visiting from London and staying in a hotel nearby, it seemed like a good place to meet for Sunday brunch. And I was not disappointed. The bartender was friendly and fun and the restaurant was not overcrowded as some Manhattan brunch spots can be. In fact, it was a little light on the brunch crowd, but that probably made the dining experience better. We had such a nice time at the bar that we forwent the table and had brunch at the bar. I recommend the passion fruit Bellini and the frittata (bacon & cheddar). My friend had the breakfast pizza and the house gin & tonic. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. I definitely will go back even if just for the chance to have a quiet u-n-rushed brunch (and a passion fruit bellini!).

The atmosphere was fun, the music was great. The lights were turned down too low -- romantic setting which contrasts with the casual tiled room. The food was very good, but overall the meal was pricey for what it was. Recommend the charcuterie and cheese plates, the crispy artichokes (though lose the soggy fried zucchini that came with), the kale salad, the steak for two (though too expensive). We went for pre-theatre, and it was a good choice with a short walk to our destination.

I wasn't happy with the value or service. Waitress took our order and was nice but not that helpful. A different server plopped the food on the table with no eye contact or presentation. We had a big bill for 2 prix fixe dinners and half bottle wine. The "big" plate only had 3 scallops. They were delicious. Spent $80. Lucky husbands weren't with us or they would be hungry. Desserts were big and out of proportion to the meal, too big and too sweet. Unable to eat. Soup starter tomato soup acidic but no bread or crackers offered, had to flag down waitress at bottom of bowl to get bread. I will not be returning . Meal was overpriced.

Although we were excited to have lunch at a Marc Murphy restaurant, we were extremely underwhelmed by our experience at Kingside. Our waiter was nonchalant and we had to flag him down on several occasions to get service that would normally be provided at any restaurant that was functional. The food while tasty was sparse - a $29 prix-fixe lunch choice of tomato-eggplant soup came in a small half-filled cup and the main course consisted of two medium size scallops in a sauce. Definitely not a good value for the money. Will not return.

Went there for brunch with friends. The restaurant was very well decorated and had a pleasant interior - however the atmosphere was dull and we were one of the only tables there. The food varied a lot, certain dishes were pretty good others not so much. However neither the size nor the quality of any of the dishes we had lived up to their respective price tags. Overall average experience.

All the food was excellent, from the black truffle pasta, to the pork chop to the roasted chicken. However the service was a bit off with food not arriving together and the venue was exceptionally loud, despite being rather empty.

Loved my experience here so much! the Food was incredible. The restaurant is beautiful. I'm torn, I want everyone to know about it because its amazing, but I don't want anyone to know about it because I don't want to have a "wait time". You can't have your cake and eat it too!

Marc Murphy needs to go back to culinary school. Kingside's food is lousy. The kale salad tasted like a plate of grass, the seafood brodo was tasteless and the peach in the peach pie tasted like canned apples with tons of cinnamon added to cover up a tinned flavor. The thin, unripe peach slices that accompanied it were an insult. Murphy needs to spend less time on TV and more in the kitchen, if he can cook at all.

I had the restaurant week menu -- kale salad, chicken, peach pie for $42.00. I also had a glass of Pinot Grigio. My friend ordered scallops @$36.00 and received 3 small scallops. She also ordered a side of Asparagus. Food was good, but should have been a larger portion of scallops. Total bill with tip was close to $150.00. A little pricey for the amount of food served.

I love Kingside. However, I found it very stingy of the restaurant not to include ANY sides with the steak and salmon main courses. The protein was served on the plate solo... and the price point was not low. Just a few fries and green beans would have been sufficient. This is not the kind of restaurant that should be charging for every extra side dish.
The cost of the food was not equivalent ...
The cost of the food was not equivalent to the taste. Nice presentation but lacked taste or quality. It seems everyone in the neighborhood knew not to patronize this restaurant except my party as we were the only ones there and were prevented from going anywhere else because of the credit card hold.

Overall a great dinner date here. Pros - delicious food, friendly wait staff and nice décor. Cons - portions were on the small side (okay with me, just meant I got dessert) and there was no one in the restaurant. This was not surprising when we sat down (6:30 on a Saturday night) but I would have expected things to pick up by the time we left (8pm). This actually wasn't a con for us since we were having a quiet date night but for those looking for more of scene it may not be the place. A shame because the food was quite good so I hope business picks up! The space has great potential too.

I had guests from LA staying near the restaurant so it was convenient. The waitstaff were pleasant but need additional training when it comes to table settings. The wine list was good and we ordered a bottle, but they don't stock more than 1 bottle of the same wine?
Breakfast is Better than Lunch
I made a lunch reservation at Kingside with great anticipation. Early in the morning of the day of my meal, I walked from my hotel to the restaurant to make sure I knew its exact location. When I discovered it was open I went inside and ate breakfast, an egg and sausage sandwich. Although it took a bit longer than I expected to get my food (considering there were very few diners in the restaurant at that time of day) it was well worth the wait. It was excellent. It made me even more excited for what I would eat later at lunch. As good as my breakfast was, my lunch was very disappointing. Again, the wait time for the food was bothersome. However, unlike my breakfast, the food I ate at lunch was mediocre at best. A nondescript salad, an overly seasoned roasted artichoke dish, and a disappointing lobster toast. In summary, with all the good food options in Manhattan to choose from, I cannot recommend this to a fellow diner with the exception of breakfast.
a disappointing business lunch
I've been to Kingside about half a dozen times, and I'm writing because I was disappointed this time. The tuna nicoise salad ingredients were all so raw and hard that they were difficult to cut with a knife, tho the tuna itself, what there was of it, was nice. No bread was brought to the table until we asked for it twice. When we finished our lunch a big smear of butter was left in the middle of the table, and neither the bus person nor our wait person thought it was their job to clean it up, tho the wait person brought the bill and the bus person returned to the table to refill our water glasses. The butter just sat there. This was a business meeting and the butter was distracting so finally I used my napkin to clean it up myself. I like the venue, it's a lovely room, but the service and food this last time (April 26, 2016) were a letdown. Don't think I'll go back really soon.
