Rustic Kitchen Bistro & Bar Ratings and Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised, great food and great service. There is something for everyone on the menu and they have a nice drink/wine menu as well. Had dinner and went back the next day for a late lunch. Prices are mid-range and totally worth it, I was not disappointed.
Atmosphere and service was very nice. Menu was pricey. Got a $27 "hanger" steak that was worth at the most $18. It was good but not that good. The drinks are fabulous, ordered a Manhattan, and it was good in a nice goblet type glass. Overall we really enjoy it there.
Dined there for the first time in September on my last visit home and loved it. Decided to go for my sisters birthday and to celebrate Father's Day. Received a call to confirm the reservation and told them we were celebrating a birthday and told them upon arrival the same, nothing was done or offered.
The server was not attentive, didn't really offer refills on cocktails, I sat with no cocktail for 20 minutes. She didn't mention the daily specials, although we heard her tell the table next to us after we already ordered. She seemed annoyed to be waiting on us and made no effort to engage us. The food runner with the curly reddish brown hair was so incredibly pleasant and smiling every time she delivered our food or walked by and would make a great server.
We split several different appetizers and all had salads and entrees. The food was excellent and we enjoyed everything. It was an absolute value for the quality of food and selection. The limited number of cocktails that we had were great, it would have been nice to try other selections had they been offered.
If the server was more attentive and engaging I would give a 5 star rating. I'll give it another shot on my next visit home and hopefully service will be better. The only other issue was the music was too low
Went for a Fathers Day dinner. The RK never disappoints! I had the Grilled Pork Chop special and it was done to perfection! My husband had the red snapper special and was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Pretty neat! always love the drink menu as well. don't forget to make reservations. Great for dinner with friends or a just looking for a place for two.
My daughter graduated from the University of Scranton- and the ceremony was at Mohegan Sun Arena- beautiful day and excellent choice for my family to celebrate all her accomplishments. Sat us right on time- got there a little early and waited until our reservation time. Sat at the bar until table ready. Apps and food delicious. Didn't feel rushed. Food brought out at a good pace. Will definitely visit again if in the area
