Not the best place to go for BBQ – I have never written a review before about a restaurant but I had to because it was the worst BBQ I have ever had.
My husband and I went there and we wasted $27.00. We ordered brisket, ribs, turkey and 2 sides. We could not eat anything. The ribs were so fatty, and salty I could not even bite into them. The brisket was 80 % FAT, we got our food tried to eat it and left not too long after. No one even came to see how our meal was.
We are not chain restaurant people and were very excited about having a good BBQ experience, That was not it.
We have had BBQ in many states and this was the worst.
Good food, horrible wait... – The food is excellent. The service is good. The place itself is great. Dining for 3 hours and 45 minutes was shocking and made the experience not so great. Each new course takes 25-30 minutes. Not sure we'd return because of this.
Beware the nay sayers! This place is incredible. – This restaurant is touted as one of the finest in the state...believe it. My wife and I went to the Cookery for a special occasion and we were not disappointed, we were in awe. We came up from the cities for a midweek get away, and kicked it off with a trip to the Cookery. We had the most wonderful time. The staff did a beautiful job arranging the special event, and the food was amazing. This is a place were food is transformed into art. The flavors and textures create compositions. What people need to understand is that the chef is not simply cooking, this is about creating a sensual experience for your palate, so full of originality and creativity that you will want to shake his hand by the time dinner is over. I have read some of the reviews and I am surprised that people are taken aback by the prices. Is it not indicated, clear as day, on the web what dinner a dinner can cost? Isn't the 3,5,& 9 course dining all clearly priced? Total disclosure is what I recall. It is well worth the price for such a delicious experience.
PErfect for a special occasion – The food is incredible. The menu changes with the season, we were there for the garlic menu. My girlfriend does not eat meat except for fish and they were happy to accommodate. We did 5 coures paired with wine. Each course they brought a new glass of wine. The service was what it should be for this kind of restaurant.
Amazing food – one of the more pleasurable dining experiences we've had in the cities - Amazing quality of food - European pacing with excellent wine pairings for each course - we never felt rushed and could enjoy each and every taste sensation the kitchen popped our way - highly recommended, even with the drive!
The food is flawless and the ambience hopelessly romantic at this Bayport treasure. – In Short
This is a restaurant for lovers--of each other, food and fine wine. With its Mission-style furniture, rich floral wallpaper and soft classical music, you'll feel as though you're in an elegant home. What's for dinner depends on the mood of owner/chef Jim Kyndberg. He offers a fixed-price three-, five-, or nine-course meal featuring seasonal delicacies and locally grown produce. Among Chef Kyndberg's creations are sweet corn bisque and braised veal cheeks with morel mushrooms.
Not worth the price. – I have been to the "Cookery" in the past, back when Kirk was the chef and the food was worth every dollar. If the wine paring dinner, 5 coarse, was $55 it would have been worth it. But, when they charge an extra $30 for the wine to go with the food it is not. The food was above average but, not the knock your sensations out that they use to have.
Mushroom night – We took our 15 year old daughter to this restaurant for the morel mushroom feast. The food was GREAT! BUT-ambiance??? We sat by a drafty door-in the middle of a room FULL of people-could you get any more in there?? Nice idea of having theme dinners. I would gladly pay $75-$90 per person for a full dinner and wine BUT not with 30-45 people staring over my shoulder.
It's all about quality. – Disregard previous viewer's comments. They are irrelevant to what is happening at Bayport Cookery this year!
Well it was our 5th year anniversary, and we had the worst experience in our lives. Expecting to wow my wife we I ended up with a lighter wallet and worst an empty stomach! Our silverware was dirty, our meals came out slower than Dennys, and my wifes main dish came out uncooked and mine was as hard as a rock. After telling the server about it, 20mins later he brought us another dish with a look of hate on his face as if we were to blame. As for dessert, just skip it and go home! Our bill was $135.00! We stoppep at a fast food restaurant on the way home...............
