My manz and them were raving about this place. So I took my shawdy for birthday. The ambience is definitely great. The wings were hittin. But the menu was limited because of the COVID restriction but we would definitely visit again when this pandemic is over.
Food was good with a limited menu due to COVID. It was nice location
Great food and service and extremely adherent to safety
The food is rally good. The menu has limited options, but that is the point of the restaurant. There are about 4 drink options and 4 options for menu items.
I reserved for outdoor seating but because of the rain we were seated indoor, I would have appreciated a notice on this change. It was stressful for me as it was my first dine out experience. The menu was very limited, understandable because of current situation. Nothing extraordinary with the food. Much was written about this place, but I was not impressed.
It was a great Sunday lunch date. The food was so good and flavorful. I loved my curry chicken, and my boyfriend is addicted the smoked jerk wings. Our servers were nice, it was peaceful and relaxing.
This place is awesome!
I was expecting to order the oxtails, but of course due to COVID the menu is limited.
Due to a change in chefs or limiting the menu due toCOVID19 - not sure, but we had a choice of two entrees, one salad, no dessert. My reason for going was to experience the variety of African or Caribbean food. But no such luck. Had the Trinidad curry w/goat shoulder- not exciting, and Brussels sprouts - too sweet. Abundant safety precautions and spacing so felt comfortable. However, I doubt we’ll try fine dining again anytime soon. Just too awkward. Not relaxing. Sorry to have missed their normal menu and service.
Food and drinks were wonderful and it felt very safe!
Very nice restaurant on the wharf. We will visit again. Food was fantastic and the service was excellent!
We were highly disappointed in the menu, food, atmosphere and service. Since the original Chef departed this restaurant has died.
Amazing food, great staff, perfect and on point. I highly recommend this place
Sooopo good! Food was fantastic. Amazing and unique mix of flavors, loved every bite. So highly recommend.
Expensively priced sub par food. The best part of this restaurant is the decorum, would not return.
The food was absolutely delicious, great outdoor seating right on the Wharf. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal- especially careful of COVID restrictions
Very accommodating. My friend has many allergies, and they made sure she was taken care of. The food was very good.
Things are certainly different in this COVID-19 reality for restaurants, and you could feel every bit of it at Kith and Kin. After making a reservation for 8:15, I waited until 8:45 before being seated at my table.
While I certainly understand things being difficult to manage right now, that was something I couldn't quite reconcile considering the tools available to staff to assist in managing tables.
However, once we sat down, things flowed from there. The menu is abbreviated due to staffing issues, so it's not the usual Kith and Kin offering, but the food was amazing and so was the service.
I have been here twice before and this time was not a great experience. We were made to wait longer for our reservation, the menu was very restricted, my wife’s food had an insect in it which really made it really bad as she couldn’t even re-order her meal since they only allowed us an hour dinning. To end, the bill was incorrect with items on there that we didn’t order. Over wall very disappointed for a date night we were truly looking forward to.
COVID restrictions had a big impct on our dinner, so I can't fault the restaurant for that. The menu was very limited, I assume due to COVID. Staff seemed to struggle to bring enough utensils for self-serving from dishes. The brussel sprouts weren't quite as good as usual. Jerk wings were outstanding, however. All this is said with the knowledge that COVID has probably made it difficult for restaurants to deliver at top performance. The manager was exceptionally professional and kind.
Great atmosphere. Great customer service. Food was outstanding
Reservations are for one hour only. The food was ok. I had the Trinidadian curry goat. As a Trinidadian I didn’t find it to be close to home at all. The meat was waaaaay over cooked, as was the coconut rice. It could’ve used some chana and potato also. Ambiance was nice and server was great as well. Chef Kwame isn’t the Executive Chef anymore so it’ll be interesting to see what the menu will become now that he’s gone.
Sat outside, very nice. Great food. Wings were super. Coconut sorbet was also great.
I didn't like spending that much money on a meal and being told my hour was up before my desert was even served. We weren't wasting time or loitering. We were simply eating a meal. The food was very good but that part was extremely disappointing.
The food was excellent!
Waitstaff is friendly and attentive. Tbe decor is lovely and very classy and chic. Great location on the Wharf.
Understanding that the restaurant was operating on a limited menu, the overall experience was good. The service was just ok considering that they only served us one entree instead of the two we ordered and the appetizer was somewhat sparse. Looking forward to them being fully operational and getting a chance to enjoy the full experience!
We had a wonderful time eating great food and having fun with friends. The staff was attentive and anticipated our needs.
As usual the food was outstanding the service was professional and impeccable we had a big table by the window everything was perfect except I really wanted a margarita from Master Mixer Dimitri but he was working upstairs at the pool bar However the margarita I had was still good
The food was good. But the ambiance was a bit corporate. Don’t know if there is anything to be done about that.
The food was amazing. I brought my sisters and they all loved it.
Curry goat entree was phenomenal. Manager was able to clearly articulate the ingredients. Entire staff was amazing and kind.
The time duration at the outside table needs reviewing. 1hr for a appetizers, entree and drinks is simple not enough.
For the current situation in providing service this place was outstanding. Great food and great service. Did I mention great food? Will definitely be back.
Great food!! I love Kith Kin. It's one of my favorites.
Phenomenal service. The new menu has limited yet great options! The food was amazing.
Great food and ambiance. Just had a long wait even though we had a reservation. Waited about 30 mins past our reservation time to be seated. It was pretty warm in the restaurant as well. Felt like we were sitting outside. Food was very good.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I will visit again soon! I really hope to meet Chef Kwame on my next visit!
I believe Kith & Kin was operating at a limited menu due to COVID19. Food didn't taste as before. I will give it a pass due to the current conditions of Covid, but they need to go back to the pre-covid19 taste.
Went to kith/kin for my husband’s 40th birthday and everything was exceptional! Could not have asked for a better dinner in the middle of a pandemic.
Only two options on the menu to choose from. And the food was cold. Our first experience before Covid was awesome. This time, we were very caught off guard with the limitation of options on the menu and the food was cold.
the serving size of the side dishes were too small. Also a nice soft background music will be nice.
