The Knick Ratings and Reviews
Met two friends for lunch during Downtown Dining. The Knick offers both inside and outside seating, westher permitting. The menu for this event had great options from which to select. I had a delicous Gazpacho for starters, followed by grilled salmon salad also excellent.
Service was a bit slow, so we requested dessert to go.
I would recommend this restaurant for lunch. Be sure to let your waitress know if you have a time constraint.
I had forgotten what a great venue the Knick is, with it's outdoor seating and views of the park, and the lake! They have creative items on the menu, and you can eat as healthy as you choose. Try their gazpacho.....delicious! Then try a grilled salmon salad with citrus Asian dressing, to die for! There is a nice local feel to the restaurant, and if I recall correctly they have nice wines to select from.
The restaurant was full for our 1 o'clock lunch. Mostly pairs of ladies or small work groups had the place requiring louder than converstional volume to be heard across the table. The staff communication was barely intelligible but worked because nothing special was required.
Courses came slowly, but food was good and tables slowly emptied making the end of the meal much more comfortable and allowed a good wrapup to the event. Would do it all again.
Went for downtown dining week and knew it would be busy so I made a reservation. No point in doing so since they couldn't accommodate. We had to sit outside and it was very windy and chilly.
I understand they were extra busy for downtown dining week but then don't offer reservations if you cannot fulfill them. Especially when people are coming during their lunch hour from work and have a limited time. If you offer reservations you should know how many tables you can offer for what times and if people walk-in they should have to wait, not the other way around.
I went during Downtown Dining 2017 for dinner. I didn't feel like the food was worth the $25 a person, the portions seemed small. The server was a little over the top. Each time she came over she said "it's delicious, right?!" The Brussels sprouts were good and the wings messy. The salmon was ok and the pasta very creamy. The cheesecake was soft and the flour less cake chocolate was delicious. I would try lunch during Downtown Dining but would pass on dinner again.
We were there the Saturday during Downtown Dining Week for lunch. Upon arriving we learned that on Saturday they were not doing the Dining Week Lunch because they did breakfast from 9 to 2. We were disappointed, but we stay for breakfast and were very happy with the breakfast we ordered. When we made the reservation on Open Table, there was not any notification of the lunch not being available on Saturday. We will be back on a Saturday for breakfast or Sunday for brunch.
Even a rainy night didn't stop people from dining out here. Such a versatile menu that it's hard to choose. Our dinners ranged from the special which was mahi mahi, to scallops, and also ravioli. We started with the crab appetizer. Piping hot served with an abundant amount of crackers ...very good. Ravioli with porcini mushrooms was a bit too soupy for me, but flavor was nice. The others were satisfied with their entrees and practically licked their plates clean. Our waitress, Grace, was attentive, engaging and helpful.
While not a quiet and romantic brunch, it was amazing people watching, the coffee was comforting, the brunch beverage list diverse, the food was filling and well presented plus a good value. The potatoes could've been seasoned but the rest of the entree was extremely delicious (smoked salmon omelette, crab cake eggs Benedict, pecan Belgian waffles)
In general our meal was very good, however both of the soups were very weak and watery. The Lobster was especially lacking in flavor, almost like they just boiled the lobster shells in the broth. For $5.95 a bowl, we expected a much better product with taste and body. Although we were dining in the evening and ordered entrees , many of the guests ordered the sandwiches, which was probably the better choice at the Knick. If we come back, it would be for the sandwiches.
