Kitchen on Cary Ratings and Reviews
Great food, great staff and great location. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd what the hell else can I say to use 50 characters.
I was curious about this restaurant for many years, but because we are not locals I couldn't resist going to my favorites when in the aria in stead of trying new choices.
This time I made sure I try this place, but unfortunately can not say I am glad I did.
To me restaurants bring you different levels of experience: a)WOW, b)GREAT, c) GOOD, d)NOT SO GOOD, e)NOT GOOD, & f)BAD.
This place fits to experience c) which is GOOD. But for people who have just few days to spend in Richmond, it's a pity to experience just GOOD, when you know the places that give you a WOW experience. And that's why we are not planing to return. But If I'd live nearby I would come here once in a while.
We had a great time for my husband's birthday ! The service was phenomenal. We had Brussels sprouts and the apple salad to start. My husband had the special of NY strip and shrimp with horseradish mashed potatoes and sugar snap beans. I had the other special of Tennessee hot chicken with Mac n cheese. We also had great drinks - their old fashioned is unbelievable!!
The server was very nice but obviously not updated on all specials on menu. I had wanted to go to The Kitchen on Cary for the hot chicken special that was a Tuesday dinner I missed but decided to check out on next Friday. The other waiter mentioned Nashville hot chicken as part of special which we weren't given, if I had known, I would have ordered. I had already ordered another meal and didn't want to change since already done, such a waste of food and $$ to change after one dish done so I ordered the chicken to go. The hanger steak I had was delicious!
Stopped in for late lunch. The brussel sprouts are AMAZING!! Service was great and very accommodating. I didn't love the quiche....it was more like brioche but I appreciated the server warning me that it wasn't a typical quiche. I really enjoy this restaurant. It was my second visit and I will go back!
Excellent!! Food was outstanding beginning with the appetitizers (fried green tomatoes and fried pimiento fritters), scallops and fried oysters entres and ending with delicious desserts (bread pudding with hard wiskey sauce or peach cobbler). Well worth the hour and half drive to Richmond. Highly recommend.
The mixologist served a delicious Ruby Slipper Cocktail of Moonshine,Champagne,Cranberry liquer....delicious.
The local Trout was very good. The scallops were attractively served with a special Risotto...generous!!
One friend loved the Beef appetizer as a meal!!
All good and well recommended!!
We enjoyed a delightful meal from grilled asparagus and crispy brussel sprouts to open to peach cobbler and a Macaroon nightcap to close. Food was delicious, if the dinner portions modest in size. Service was great. We enjoyed the experience tremendously. We were glad we'd made a reservation. It was full on a Saturday night.
Our bartender/waitress, Rachael was great!She made really good drinks and provided great service throughout the evening.The food was outstanding.There were 3 couples who were all satisfied and felt that it was a great experience.We try a different restaurant each month.Have been doing for 5 years and haven't missed once.Kitchen on Cary is one of our favorite.
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.
