My favorite place to eat in NOrfolk. – fine dining prices but you get a fine dining experience, the best service, atmosphere and food in town!
Most Beautiful Restaurant Downtown Hands Down! – Pretty is an understatement when describing Kincaid's. Breathtaking is more like it. Not to mention that it's located inside a mall. I guess that's what takes you by surprise. The food and service are just as fantastic as the decor, but as a true woman I was sold on the ambience. The bar is huge and appears to be stocked with about every bottle you can think of. It's very "Frank Sinatra" with dark wood and club chairs. The dining room carries the same wood with deep, high back booths and intimate tables. As far as food and wine goes, they have a expansive wine list with options in any price range and, believe it or not, their own sommelier. His name is Sam. He's very approachable and not what you picture when you think wine guy. He was able to guide us to a couple of great steals on the menu. He also suggested the chocolate torte with a ruby port. It was an amazing pairing and I'm not even a fan of port. If you go, be sure to try the prime rib. It's rock salt roasted, a concept pretty new to me, but it definitely made a difference in taste. It was moist, tender, juicy and came with garlic mashed potatoes. My husband had the asiago halibut with white wine butter sauce. Amazing. All in all, it was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. We will be back.
California Dining on the East Coast – We were in town from southern California and were so pleased to find a Kincaid's here. The service and quality of our dinner was just perfect! My husband and I had our first date at Kincaid's and he proposed there. It's a very upscale restaurant and we visit it often. We love the bread pudding!!!
A Gem in Downtown Norfolk – This restaurant is beautiful and clean. Right from the start you know that you are in for a special treat because the host will greet you with a big smile and promptly show you to a beautiful table. There are a wide variety of different styles of tables so you can usually always have the type of seat you prefer. Next, the service, the waitstaff is always on point and you will never have to wait very long for your drinks or dinner because they are always helping each other out on the floor! They are all very kind and genuine and really care about creating a delightful experience for their guests. I always ask for Audrey or Scott! When something is wrong (which very rarely happens when I eat there) they are gracious and expedient in implementing a solution. The managers really want the best for their guests and are willing to accommodate any reasonable requests.
Finally, the food! That's only one part of the picture but it is an important one! The food at Kincaid's is amazing. It isn't pretentious, it's just great food with a great taste that you would make for yourself at home if you had the time! They have all kinds of choices from fish, poultry, beef and pork! Also, the salads would make your healthy eating choices so easy and delicious! Try the Maple Chicken Salad!
I cannot say enough about how awesome the fully stocked bar is at Kincaid's! It's the LARGEST bar back in all of Norfolk! The bar tenders are experienced and knowledgeable which means they make the signature sips at Kincaid's the BEST drinks you can buy! I HIGHLY recommend the Vanilla Sky martini, and make sure you ask that Kim make your drink for you. She is THE BEST!
If you combine all three factors: the ambiance, the service and the food/drinks, you have an unbeatable dining experience awaiting you! This is a great place for large parties, celebrations (especially birthdays *hint*hint*), romantic dining and entertaining out of town guests.
One of Norfolk's Finest! Enjoy!
very nice – I love Kincaids. Have eaten there many times. A good place to take out of town guests. Never had a bad meal there and some have been extraordinary. The prices are on par with other good steak places. Have almost always had excellent service and the one time I didn't the manager made it up to me by not letting me pay for my meal.
The Best Prime Rib in Downtown! – Great service, great drinks, great food! Hands down the best Prime Rib we have had in years. Our dinner waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive, the hostess friendly and helpful. Kincaid's was a pleasant surprise! And we will return!
Not a quality restaurant – I have eaten at almost every nice restaurant in the Norfolk area and this should definitely NOT be considered one of those. It has good drinks and is good for a quick bite while shopping, but does not compare with other nice restaurants in the area (Bobbywood, Todd Jurich, Byrd and Baldwin steakhouse). The food is priced as expected for a nicer restaurant, but the flavor is just not there. As another reviewer mentioned this restaurant is in the mall and the quality shows that. Trust me if you love food and are in the Norfolk area then spend your money at one of the other restaurants mentioned. This is meant for people shopping not for dining as they lead you to believe.
Awesome place! – I always feel that I am treated very well by the staff here. The hostesses are very nice, the waiters are wonderful - it's nice to be treated with respect. The food is WONDERFUL. I have tried a lot of different things and have loved it all. As long as you know ahead of time that you are going to spend a good bit of money, this is a great place. My husband and I come here for every special occasion.
Great lunch specials... – I had lunch recently at Kincaid's. The server who waited on me, Scott D. was very warm, inviting, had a GENUINE smile and very courteous. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to order and he took the time to explain some of the lunch favorites and even told me about some of their specialty dishes. I ended up ordering the Caribbean Ahi Tuna, which I ordered rare. Scott came back after putting in my order to make sure I really wanted the dish rare. He really seemed to want to satisfy his dining guests, myself and the tables he waited on that surrounded me. I NEVER had to ask for any refills on my beverage. He came back often to check on me but never hovered. All-in-all I had a wonderful experience. If you ever dine at Kincaid's for lunch, I suggest you ask for Scott D. He is AWESOME!
Disapppointing for the money – Poor service; the waiter couldn't remember our drink orders, and got the steaks wrong; it was only 3 of us! We could hardly find him when we needed refills, too. The salad tomatoes were "food service" grade. I'd expect the buyer to pick out the best ones, not plastic, mushy, pink ones, for the cost of a meal at Kincaid's.
