Kitchen on Cary Ratings and Reviews
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.
I have wanted to come to Kitchen on Cary ever since I found their Instagram! Luckily my parents where in town this past week and my husband and I were able to have a date night. We went on a Tuesday so that I could partake in their wine pairing menu, which was amazing. My husband had their special for the day which was lamb chops. The wine pairing menu is a GREAT value as it is 3 courses and you get a nice size glass of wine with all courses all for $30.00. The staff was great and the manager was very pleasant and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening there and will for sure go back in the near future.
Great place for an intimate dinner or fun group get together, as was the occasion of our dinner. The menu provides several options and there was no disappointment with any of the selections made. Service was fantastic both at the bar (a couple of us had drinks while waiting for the rest of our party) and our waitress. I have already recommended this spot to several friends and plan to return myself in the very near future!
Really creative food--my friend and I sat by the front window, which was perfect for conversation and noise level and a two person experience. I had delicious salmon tacos. We devoured fries with truffles. My friend had meatloaf wrapped in bacon which she said was good but wouldn't order again. We liked our apple dessert though the apples were a bit under cooked. Though tasty, the menu seemed overpriced. All in all, pluses and minuses.
We went here for New Year's Eve and it was delicious! The only downside was the ambiance- it was very bright and our table was wobbly. Our table was also a high top which I was not happy about. There are few things I hate more than spending a bunch of money at a restaurant and having it tainted by the atmosphere.
As always, the food does not disappoint. It is a nice place to go for a special occasion but it was very crowded and very loud. Thankfully someone finally turned down the Christmas music, but it was still hard to here with all of the people talking at all of the different tables. Had the special - Street tacos, made with blackened salmon - yummy!
We had a large group and they were excellent! They were very understanding when we were running a bit late. Great appetizers for splitting and delicious. The eggroll appetizer, pork entree and steak entree were particular hits! They also have really well priced wine. Perfect place for a large group (10) and so accommodating. We will be back!
Was in Richmond for a soccer tournament with my son. Instead of heading to Chipotle for a quick bight with some team mates, we decided to venture out for a good meal. It was well worth it! Delicious, unique local food. Great service. We would have come back the next night, but they were booked for a local event. Definitely try this place! We even bought the preserves made by the sous chef.
Every item we ordered was delicious. Best shrimp & grits ever, wonderful rabbit papperdelle and roasted Brussels sprouts with fresh farm taste. Incredible light but soo rich bread pudding with juicy melt in your mouth blackberries. Attentive service, great advice and a warm, relaxing ambience. I will be going to Richmond just to dine there!!
Amazing! Ended up sitting at the bar for apps and it was so comfortable, that we stayed there for dinner. The food was terrific - everything we tried was delish. We had several apps from the bar menu....all were great but the brussel sprouts and truffle fries were both so yummy. My husband had the rabbit and he loved it! The bartender and staff were helpful and friendly, and it was an all around great experience. Highly recommend!
I have been to this restaurant several times. The food flavors were very good. They ran out of chicken and we were the first people in the restaurant for dinner. The desserts were very good. But there was no chocolate option. Several people at my table got the salmon and they thought it was very good. I had the meatloaf which was very good.l. We got the empanadas small plates. Our waitress was working the bar and our table so I feel like our service was slow but she was pleasant and friendly.
5 friends tried Kitchen for Restaurant Week. We tried 4 four apps and 4 dinners all were outstanding. Dessert had opportunities. Atmosphere was comfortable and not too loud. Service from Rachel was outstanding...not too much and not too little. We all enjoyed it greatly and have already recommended to friends. Thank you!
My son and I enjoy trying new restaurants during Richmond Restaurant Week. We chose Kitchen on Cary for the menu offered and because we had heard good things about it. We were not disappointed. The dinner was delicious, the staff very cordial and the overall décor pleasant, though a bit cold with no carpet to soften the interior space. However, I welcome to chance to return.
Wonderful food preparation. Great and unique cocktails. Comfortable setting with friendly, attentive wait servers.
Free parking in the garage across the street. Live music and 1/2 price bottles of wine on the night (Thursday) we dined. What a value in the heart of RVA.
To make it more cozy, I would like the lighting to be dimmed.
Great choice for taking family members and friends for dinner. Seasonal menu, everyone enjoyed their dish; mine was tasteless and needed seasoning on the salmon and sweet potato puree, nevertheless, I'll still visit again. Great service and atmosphere and would love to try the brunch.
I was in town for the weekend with a friend and we decided to stop by Kitchen on Cary for brunch as it was close to our hotel and the brunch menu looked delicious. The Bloody Marys were great and they accommodated me and my friend (both vegetarians) by leaving out the beer brined bacon, although that sounds pretty cool for the meat eaters out there. Our waitress was very sweet and even checked with the chef to make recommendations to my friend about which dishes could be altered to be vegetarian. Overall, we both loved our meals and the great service we received. I would definitely come back the next time I'm in Richmond!
