    Amazing meal, everything cooked to perfection. Service was great even though it was busy for a Tuesday. It’s very loud and hard to hear but apart from that wonderful.

    Great first time here! My friend has a number of allergies and it was great that the waiter had an ingredient list on hand. He was super attentive to her requests and questions and she appreciated it. Everyone enjoyed all the food/drinks. It’s expensive for what it is, but a fun spot nonetheless!

    Our server didn't let us know that 5 items on the menu were unavailable until we tried to order each one. Very frustrating - can't you just say that off the bat? Additionally, something was wrong with their ovens and the entire restaurant smelled smokey and was very hot. Some dishes were good, others were average. Think they need more time to work out the kinks.

    The food was outstanding but the noise level (ie music) will keep us for going back. We asked to have it turned down and we’re told to speak to the Manager who never showed up.

    I struggled with the review on this. The food was good and the service was good, but the prices don’t justify the experience. We had a reservation but had to wait a half hour to be seated, probably because it just opened and is popular but still disappointing. Main plates are $40-50 and don’t include sides. A few items were not authentically Greek, however I appreciate trying to put a spin on it. For example, one of the sides we ordered was was Caico E Pepe orzo. Caico e Pepe is a solidly Italian pasta dish. Kini’s version was more cheese than orzo. For two people we had four cocktails, two side dishes and two main dishes which was about $210 before tip. This is extravagant to me and I would not describe the food or experience as extravagant. I will likely not come back unless the prices come down a bit.

    I was more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of this restaurant. I tried because I heard it was a new restaurant. They opened 6 weeks ago but operated as though they’ve been going for years. Get the meatballs, beet muhammara, and spanikopita!! Definitely going back soon.

    The restaurant labels itself as Greek but failed to serve anything that remotely reminded you of the traditional foods of Greece. The meatballs were over cooked the spanakopita looked more like a wonton Feta cheese wasn’t on menu,as was the traditional Greek salad and lamb was made with mint something that is unhear of in parts of Greece.I should know lived there for 10 years. The desserts weren’t even Greek. Yogurt with olive and lemon doesn’t even sound appetizing. The Horta wasn’t even like Swiss chard or dandelions it was Kale I don’t even think Greece produces Kale . Overall would not recommend sorry to be so harsh. They need to hire a chef from Greece.

    I found Kini’s on Tik Tok and was instantly drawn in by the ambience shown through the video. It’s in the Clayton Hotel and has beautiful seating / lighting. Perfect for a date night or dinner night with friends. Our waiter Micheal was a delight! He went through the menu with us and all of his suggestions were AMAZING. I ordered the spring chicken along which was probably the best chicken I’ve ever had. The Brussels were glazed in a yummy sauce and even the fries were perfectly thick. I will 100% be visiting Kini’s again!!

    This was a memorable meal. We loved the cocktails, dips, the flaming cheese, the brussel sprouts and the sea bass wrapped in grape leaves. The sticky pudding dessert was also memorable. We were too busy chatting with other diners and forgot to take photos. The filet kebab was amazing according to the diners at the table next to us. the waitstaff were fun, appropriately attentive and helpful! I look forward to returning very soon.

    Great food, great service! Staff always kept my water glass full. It wasn’t too loud, but it was loud enough that you felt privacy within your own table, and that the next table over was not a part of your conversations. I was a little disappointed at first that of a kind restaurant was no longer there. But decided to try the new place and I had such a good time and delicious food that instead of missing the old place, I’m really excited to dine in here again. I forgot the name of my server, but he has a long, black ponytail I was very knowledgeable about the menu, ingredients, as well as friendly and attentive. Also, loved using the lobby area to finish chatting with my friend after we had long finished our meal inside the restaurant.

    Staff was super and attentive. Food was delicious. Great atmosphere. Portion sizes for meal entrees were huge. Seafood items were appropriate, but other items listed as single serving could have easily fed two, and “for two” items could have fed three. Expensive, so sharing would help keep costs down. Would return.

    We were anxious to try the new concept at Kini’s: I would call it Mediterranean/Greek-influenced. Every dish was delicious, especially the octopus! We loved it with the lemon tahini sauce. My husband and I remarked that it’s wonderful when a meal that is so tasty is good for you, too! Our server, Yvonne, was welcoming and knowledgeable. Her descriptions of the dishes were spot on.

    I had such high hopes for this place! Our server was top notch, but the food and cocktails just did not measure up. We ordered the five dip sampler and it came out beautifully presented, but the flavors were just ok. And my sole was $50 and was totally lackluster and didn’t even have a side dish other than the herbs and olive oil to brush over it. We spent a ton of money and did not feel the food was worth the price.
