Kinley's Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews

Paid $100 per person for the Prix fixe Valentine's Day meal. 5 course meal with paired wine. The plates were all presented well, but 90% of the food was either bland, boring, overcooked, tough, dry, or a combination of those. The atmosphere was pleasant, the wait staff was friendly and attentive. But I could not get over the disappointment of the food. Not what I was expecting out of a $200 meal for 2. It may have been an off night so I would be willing to try this place again, if someone else is paying.

For $130 in dinner, I felt none of the dishes were spectacular. Good, but not great. Bread pudding was awesome, tenderloin was cooked well but lacking flavor, halibut very tender but the breading overpowered the fish.

We had reservations and were seated immediately when we showed up. we had prompt attention. Rhonda was a fantastic server. Water glasses were kept filled - my pet peeve if they aren't. The menu choices were great and the food was served as we asked and hot. very attentive waitstaff! We were there for an anniversary and birthday in the family. great experience!

We were out for a Saturday evening dinner and chose to return to Kinley's since it had been many months since our last time there. We were not disappointed and found our entrees (evening pork special & tempura cod) to be excellent. The beer (local) and wine selections paired well with our meals. The attentive service personnel were appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Kinley's and look forward to our next visit.

This restaurant was not busy on a Saturday at 645pm which was great. The server was OK but it took a while for him to warm up. 2 dishes that we ordered were missing items and bread was promised to our table but it took 2 reminders to get it delivered. The food was good and we were not rushed to eat. The calamari steak was amazing and I couldn't get enough of that sauce! The Beet Salad was really good as well. We thought the rockfish would have the wasabi in it but it did not. It was an OK dish.

We celebrated New Years Eve with the Kinleys special dinner, it was absolutely FANTASTIC! The service was excellent, the server was friendly, the 5 course meal and wine pairing was superb! I can't wait to go back for dinner or lunch! I would highly recommend Kinleys !

I am re-sending this as the first try I missed some questions and don't think my review went through. The best thing about our dining experience was our food server. He was very kind and offered suggestions for the things I could eat. He was aware of my allergies and actually cared. He made our 30th Anniversary a good one. It was first time there as I have many food allergies and rarely eat out. A friend recommended your restaurant. Please thank our server for giving us a very lovely evening.

Bacon wrapped dates were tasty. Caesar salad comes with anchovies. 👍🏼Wine selection limited. Ambience is poor. We were seated in a room in the back which was very cold. They were nice enough to reseat us in the bar near the wood stove, however, the whole place reminded me of my college apartment from the eighties. So, meh, I probably wouldn't go there on a date again.

Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable! The main course took a little while but I knew this and was in no hurry to dine and dash. The meals were good, but I think next time I'd just do small plates and appetizers with wine pairing.

This was our first visit to Kinley's and it definitely won't be the last. The wait staff was very nice and always attentive. I had the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the halibut and he loved it. We decided to splurge and each get a dessert, and they were both magnificent.
Great food! We will definitely be coming back!!

Kinley's always serves excellent food. I had a new item this time, a Thai Fried Chicken with Thigh meat. Sweet and Spicy. Very good. The deserts had to be taken home when half done due to the richness. I like the addition of small plates. It gives a few excellent options for more choices and not more food.

I had the salmon and quinoa dish, salmon cooked just right and a large portion. My husband had the halibut cheeks, nice portion and very tasty also! Our server Rhonda was very good, pretty impressed by the staff. Will go again when it's just us two (no kiddos).

Good service. Three of our party of eight were not able to join. Our waiter was accommodating to our request to be moved to smaller seating. We all enjoyed our meals from refreshing salads to spicy Thai chicken. Next time we will have to save room for dessert.
