Kitchen on Cary Ratings and Reviews
This was a delicious lunch. Some of the appetizer portions were not big enough for a group of 8 (the asparagus) and the dining experience put us over our time limit while waiting for the check but overall a great dining experience.
As always our experience at Kitchen on Cary was remarkable! The food was delicious, service was amazing and the manager (on both visits) came over towards the end of our meal to make sure we had a great time. We will definitely be going back!
We had a business meal for 7 at Kitchen on Cary. Our waitress was attentive without being bothersome and the food was fantastic. We shared a couple of appetizers and then I got the short rib beef Street Tacos - absolutely delicious!
Went for Mother's Day brunch. The Prix Fixe menu was grossly overpriced for the quality of food served. Most of us around the table gave our meals about a 5/10. The cocktails were not so great either. In the RVA foodie, craft cocktail scene, you have to be on top of your game at all times. This restaurant misses the mark compared to other local restaurants.
We went for Mother's Day brunch and were very pleased with the selections.We were with friends.The spacing out of our food being served was perfect,which allowed great conversations and relaxation.Everyone was pleased with the taste of the food.Great mohitas!!
Special event dinner for my son's graduation from college. Seated quickly, nice table, very good noise level. But, our sever seemed very inexperienced. Spilled a drink on my mother. Couldn't keep orders straight. Appetizers were good. I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf which sounded amazing to a meat lover. It was tasteless and boring to be blunt. Other guests did enjoy their meals. After dinner no offer of coffee or dessert, I was just handed the check? Never had that experience before. We were certainly quiet and not a troublesome group so not sure why. Will not return.
First time eating here. It was surprisingly slow and quiet for a Friday evening. The atmosphere was a bit boring. Too much beige paint: the walls, the ceiling, the bar, the brick we're all the same color. The service was very good, the food was average. We had the Oscar fillet and bacon wrapped meatloaf. Glad we tried it out though we will not return.
What a fantastic experience, from the time we entered until we paid the check. Service was attentive, and also knowledgeable regarding the menu, which is rare these days. Great opportunity to take advantage of Richmond Restaurant Week, and try a new place for us. I would highly recommend this phenomenal restaurant. A hidden gem in the Slip.
Great meal at KonC. It was Restaurant week and the menu was fabulous. The Lamb Ragu was the winner and it was fantastic. The bread pudding dessert was also outstanding. Really great meal and we cannot wait to return for the full menu.
We went for restaurant week. Food was pretty good overall (crab cake, pimento cheese with pork rinds, filet, lamb ragu, bread pudding, and pound cake) although the lamb ragu was a little flavorless. The desserts were definitely the best part. The cocktails were good. It was worth the restaurant week price but we won't be rushing back too soon.
Taking advantage of restaurant week at an outstanding restaurant. We started off with fried oysters accompanied by a delicious sauce. Then, again, we both had the petite filet topped with crab meat over asparagus. Dessert was chocolate bread pudding. Everything was great. Kudos to Casey, our server. Kitchen on Cary is now one of our go to places.
We wanted to support the Richmond Restaurant Week endeavor and chose Kitchen on Cary as our dining place. Extraordinary care and preparation showed through in every morsel! Am anxious to visit again and experience the whole menu!
I was amazed at the number of local farmers that were used for this one restaurant. The food was outstanding. I've passed by the restaurant many times and always wondered how strategically located it was. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and the ambiance. I am not looking forward to experiencing the happy hour setting.
Have had dinner here several times now and I cannot say enough great things about this RVA gem! Menu has a small number of equally delicious entrees prepared with farm fresh sides. The bread pudding is the best we have ever had anywhere. It is now a challenge to try it everywhere to see if Kitchen on Cary remains our favorite.
Nice selection of appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. Good wine and beer list. We had the grilled salmon special, the gnocchi, and the crab cakes. All were delightful. I also had the apple salad which had nice assortment of apple, gorgonzola cheese, greens and a nice vinagrette. For dessert we had the bread pudding - amazing and the goat cheese cheesecake - light but tasty.
Was looking for a "hip" place in Richmond to have dinner with my family. I settled on Kitchen on Cary as it was in the Historic Slip and looked interesting. I honestly couldn't understand why this place wasn't packed for Thursday night. We had the duck confit egg rolls and the curried oyster apps, and we all got the lamb chops. Everything was fantastic. They had a nice 1/2 price wine list value priced. Live acoustical guitar. We had a great dinner and would recommend checking out this gem.
Went with a large group of people. Staff was very accommodating and efficient. Shared 5 appetizers among us and all were delicious, especially the warm bacon bourbon dip. The small plate option of shrimp and grits was a perfect portion. Shrimp was cooked perfectly and the grits were not overly cheesy. The andouile sausage had a nice kick to it and complemented the shrimp perfectly. The special dessert, an Irish trifle with Jameson cake and Bailey's whipped cream was amazing. By far the best dessert at the table.
