My fiance and I decided to check out Kinmont after receiving a Groupon for the restaurant. I'm an avid seafood lover & my fiance is just starting out so after reading plenty of wonderful reviews, we decided it out be a great spot! The location of the restaurant is a bit secluded so it was no surprise that we were asked several times how we had heard of Kinmont upon arrival. We were taken to our table & cold tap water (with the option for sparkling) was brought swiftly to the table. I could see the waiter giving my fiance a quizzical look & he proceed to refer to us both as "ladies" for the remainder of the evening. Deeply embarrassed by the slip, my baby-faced MALE fiance didn't want to correct our waiter and let it slide for the rest of the night (mostly because we didn't realize we would be addressed as such each and every time our waiter approached the table).
We took advantage of half-off bottles of wine night (most week nights have pretty awesome specials) and I enjoyed a really fabulous Eric Louis sauvignon blanc, chilled table side. To eat we agreed to share the King Crab legs and lobster roll. For an unexplained reason the Crab came out quite a bit later than the roll (even though we asked that they be brought together) but our server was apologetic and the food was tremendous regardless. The roll was buttery and fresh, the crab leg meat was nestled nicely in shell and the mustard that accompanied them was DIVINE. The bill would have been steep had it not been for the wine special, but each item was priced in a way that reflected its quality.
Kinmont would have easily been given a 5 star review if it were based on food alone, however; the snaffu with our waiter put a bit of a damper on the evening for us. Service was otherwise wonderful and I would highly recommend dining at Kinmont and will most likely return again - all I would say is that servers should adopt more gender neutral language when addressing guests especially if a guest has you guessing!
