Kingside Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
