Is such goodness so close?!? – I was very impressed with the overall quality & 'feel' here! We started off with the house salad, which was absolutely flavorful. If any of it was frozen before it got to me, they must know an incredible secret for keeping the 'fresh' taste intact! The Rock Salt Roasted Prime Rib of Beef was simply incredible! I really didn't need the steakknife to be able to cut it. My ladyfriend's Grilled Center-Cut Fillet Mignon was, acording to her, "very salty". Not sure if it had anything to do with the Bearnaise she had them add to it or not. They had no problem preparing her another one, without the sauce.
DON'T EAT HERE! – POOR SERVICE, OBNOXIOUS WAIT STAFF, INCOMPETENT HOSTS, AND VERY INFERIOR FOOD.
Not the food court – I have taken all of the friends and family who visit me to Kincaid's. The food is excellent and the service is great. It is a bit expensive but with the convenience of shopping at a great mall, unlimited parking and the atmosphere that makes you forget you are at a mall, it is worth the money. Make sure you try the appetizers.
Great Restaurant – Excellent quality food, service, atmosphere, etc. My Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes were flavorful if a little salty, but my wife's petite filet mignon was top notch. Somewhat expensive, but I believe it is still a good value in terms of the excellent service and food. Even the house salad and garlic/rosemary breadsticks were very good.
SOMEWHAT OVERRATED – I've been to Kincaids three times and I've been DISAPPOINTED each time.
1. The food is 'artsy' (read: pretentious) in it's preparation and presentation. Dishes are over-seasoned; perhaps this is done to hide the fact that the portions are SMALL ?
2. Service is 'iffy', especially on Fridays and Saturday nights (when the place is PACKED). We once had to wait TWO HOURS for meals to arrive at our table !
Kincaids is popular and has a well-stocked bar. The staff and management are very polite and helpful.
This is basically a restaurant in a shopping mall, where college kids, the yuppie crowd... and assorted wannabees can mingle and hang out.
If you like hanging out in a chic, trendy 'yuppie' restaurant, and enjoy 'people watching', this is the place for you. If you seek a TRUE fine dining experience, there are FAR better choices in the Hampton Roads area.
My favorite restaurant – This place has undoubtedly captured my loyalty. If you want the best meal of your life, I suggest you head over to Kincaids. I have never been disappointed in all of my many visits. The last rating was correct in that the prices are a bit on the high side however...you get what you pay for. If you want low prices, go out for fast food. If you want TOP QUALITY cuisine, outstanding atmosphere and superb service, then Kincaids is your best bet. Try the Key Lime Pie Martini!!
EXTREMELY GOOD but expensive – the food, the ambience, everything is wonderful at kincaid's (although the service is kind of iffy), but it is a bit overpriced. it's worth it once in while, but the prices keep me from going more often. and that's the ONLY thing that keeps me away. oh, and there's no kids menu, but i'd rather leave the kids at home for this one.
Located inside the area's newest mall, Kincaid's brings a big city feel to a small downtown. – The Scene:
On the stroll to the table, diners pass an open kitchen where cooks grill meats including aged beef, lamb, venison, and fresh fish over hardwood-fired broilers. If you can't decide which meat you're in the mood for, never fear --Kincaid's also offers combination entrees such as prime rib and grilled salmon. Salads tend to lack the freshness found at other nearby restaurants, but the Granny Smith apple tart and Chocolate Indulgence are reliably delicious.
If you order one thing:
End the meal with a Chocolate Indulgence.
Excellent, but pricey – Kinkaids is truly as good as all the previous reviews have indicated...superb food, outstanding service, wonderful atmosphere. The "but" in all this is that you really pay for it. An average dinner for two with two glasses of wine and tip can easily come to $130.00. It's not for everyone.
Best restaurant in HR – It was almost like Europe. The waiters are very polite and competent.
