    Great atmosphere, great food, above average service. However, prices are astronomic. I was just in Switzerland where we have been conditioned to think prices are high but going out to eat in the US is now far more expensive and this restaurant certainly supports that argument.

    Went for the first time for anniversary. The atmosphere was awesome! The staff was very courteous and the lay out was beautiful. Food was delicious and our server very clearly explained specials of the day as well as specifics with the general menu. Server also stopped by the table with excellent timing throughout the night. Although I am not used to spending that much at dinner regularly, was absolutely worth the price.

    We love the outstanding menu selection at Kmi's. We have been there before. Our waiter, Taylor, was superb. My only suggestion is that if the gratuity is added to the bill, that it be mentioned when the bill is presented. Thanks Taylor for super service.

    This restaurant was great but a little pricey! Expect to pay 150-200 for a diner for two with two drinks , two entrees and splitting a dessert. The food tasted great but was bit expensive for the quantity. The staff , service and atmosphere was amazing. ! It’s a beautiful restaurant and great for a romantic dinner.

    The food was good, the service could have been much better. I found out after the dinner that my stepmom had informed the waiter that the dinner was for my birthday celebration. The waiter did nothing special for me, even though we saw that other patrons were getting special birthday treatment. He also just seemed irritated the whole time. We asked him to separate the check and he acted really put off. For us spending the amount of money that we did, we shouldn’t have received the lazy and disinterested treatment that we did from our server.

    Celebrating a birthday is a once a year experience, so you’re always hopeful all will be special. Kimi’s was a delightful experience, exceeding all expectations. Their menu offers interesting, well thought out entrees with a balance of complexity yet not losing sight of fresh flavors of ingredients. Only difficult part for us was making our choices, especially from the appetizers. Fortunately we had time to decide over a perfect martini. We won’t wait for a birthday to return.

    Waiter was casual , the li d who walked thru the station and took the whole rooms order in one sweep .. we ordered a dix smallest (of 3 types) , brought out wrong oysters (4 each of the 3 types) and upon questioning told us we were wrong , … 6 mins later he dropped salads before clearing oysters and less than five minutes later brought mains , and as we pushed our salad plates around said “too fast”? I said yes and he still put them down on the table. From oyster arrival to main courses arrival was 11 minutes total. Presentation of each plate sloppy and rushed , steak and lamb (both $60 ) were cooked to temp correctly Absolutely the single worst dining experience I’ve had in the US in 30 years … he took one salad off the check because we “did not have time to finish them “ still $275 with no alcohol. Extremely poor value in addition to unacceptable service and food
