Probably one of the most tasty dining spots in Fishtown. Has been open for a few years and only gotten better. Excellent staff, from greeters to servers, make the experience one you are happy to share with newbies. Beers and wine selection go very well with this “farm to table” menu. This place never disappoints!!
Food well prepared and nice variety to choose from.
Ambiance was nice. Energetic vibe. Outdoor seating in the back
Staff was prompt and courteous. Would definitely come back.
Loud, small space. Service wasn’t great, the hostess had to take my drink order. Food was ok, small dishes. Drinks were not great.
We had a lovely table in-between the kitchen expeditor and the brightest florescent-lighted butcher room I’ve ever seen. Food prices were way too high for not much food.
One of the best brunches I've had. The potatoes were glorious!
Excellent experience !!! I highly recommend this restaurant.The service was really good, from the seating hosts to our waitress, who was very knowledgeable and really made our experience so good, she was right on point with her recommendations. My wife Naomi had the ribs and I had the duck. OMG, both dishes were delicious. We also had dessert, Naomi had the honey Russian cake and I had the blondie, ice cream on top of a brownie, I must say, they were a nice ending to a very delicious dinner. Thank you and we will definitely return.
The food was decent, but very over-priced for what it was. The service was great though.
The food was great. However, we did the KQ family style meal and at $65 pp, it was definitely not worth it. Portion sizes were small except for the meat tray but still not nearly worth our total bill. It would have been cheaper for us to get individual appetizers, pasta, and meat entrees. We have been here before and gotten the mixed grill tray and that came with 3x the meat at only $100 total and I would say that deal is well worth it.
I would highly recommend Kensington Quarters for brunch! The service from the beginning was fantastic and friendly. The restaurant itself has a cool ambiance with the combined butcher shop aesthetic. As far as food and drinks go, everything was delicious. I'd highly recommend the bloody mary (I personally like them spicy, and the bar was accommodating to my request) and the scrapple tartine. The beer list is also extensive and has very interesting options from local breweries.
Food was delicious! Server was lovely ~ was helpful suggesting wine and offering a tasting. Only complaint was that service was extremely slow. I do not liked to be rushed what so ever but it took forever to get that first drink!
This place was amazing. I was blown away with how good everything was even the vegetables which were the best prepared I have probably ever had in my life.
Service is exceptional. Makes the difference. Food is amazing, and service makes it better.
The food was really good and offered some unique takes on veggie and meat dishes.
Our server Jason... hands down one of, if not thee best server we have ever had.
Personality for days, funny, on point, knew his menu, had amazing recommendations including drinks; kept us informed especially when the kitchen started getting busier (even though we could visually see it from our high top ).
Food: Phenomenal.. I had beef tartare and bone marrow for the first time and loved it... the fried chicken was some of the best I ever had... and then we splurged and chose the “all grill” which was all the meats and an assortment of veggies ... all of which were great portions and fantastic... the potatoes were .... wow ... yes I know potatoes ... really?! But yes they were amazing... the steak and lamb and sausage and chicken omg
My boyfriend loved the ribs on the plate as well...
The dessert ... also spot on
I had the dark chocolate pudding .... which thank god wasn’t too rich ... it was so perfectly balanced ... and my boyfriend had the honey cake which was also great just not my preference
The bartender was excellent... she was calm cool and collected and was a one woman show taking care of the entire restaurant ... she has skills
The chef... (we thought he was an owner that’s how spectacular he was) he was almost like the chefs you see on tv it was that efficient and smooth and well done and well organized and very good communication lines
Also I thought it was interesting that everyone from hostess to manager to bartender helped out... took food to tables and cleaned /bussed the tables (I don’t know if they were short staffed or if it’s by design by it was very smooth
The restaurant was very cozy
I can’t say enough good and amazing things about this place
I wish it was closer... I’d be there so much more it was phenomenal
Nice setting,location & service. Burger was good. Over cooked the pork tenderloin.
This was our first visit and it's definitely a return visit. The food was interesting, imaginative and simply put...delicious. It was quiet when we arrived for an early dinner. Our wait person / bartender was helpful and knowledgeable of every aspect of the menu. It soon became busy and service started to get uneven. Every plate brought to the table was placed incorrectly. The wait staff who brought the entrée course brought everyone the wrong dish. They need a bit more service help upstairs. That being said the food was great and worth a return visit.
It was my second birthday dinner here, my dad's first time. We were both disappointed by the portion size of the brussel sprouts and the beets were shaved so thin they were literal shavings and pretty underwhelming.
Both entrees came out barely warm - our reservation was at 6pm and there were not many diners ahead of us.
The first time I went the server was excellent - offered all of the information needed to navigate your nontraditional menu. Our server Friday did not and we had to pull the way it works out of her. Her description of portion size with regards to how many we should eat for a decent meal was also way off, hence our surprise at how minimal the two veg dishes were. We should have just gotten the mixed grill because we both were hungry later. Not the best experience for my father given how much I loved it the first time I went. And you ran out of duck the night before but it was listed on the menu. That's really why I chose KQ for my birthday dinner. And no mention of it being a special occasion despite it being noted on-line when making the reservation, at your request.
We have been going since it opened in 2014. We love food, staff, and ambiance.
We have been long time customers of KQ but i am very disappointed to say that the past two times we have been it has really gone down hill. Our last trip for brunch was very upsetting from start to finish. It took 20+ minutes to get our orders taken, seemed as if the food had been sitting a long time before it was delivered to us (30+ minutes) and when we got it things were very blah. It was obvious that they were very busy and staff was way short handed but it was a 2 hour experience and not a good one :(
I wish the short rib was available. Wine on draft was ok
Had a really good time and enjoyed food
Great food and excellent wait staff
Such a great experience! Food was delicious, superb drinks, great service, and they even gave my boyfriend and I some champagne because I had mentioned it was our anniversary. Would absolutely recommend; we can't wait to go back!
Super meal at this meat-centric place. Warm, professional wait staff. Food was delish, with a sharp presentation, especially the beef tar tar, served on a split, roasted femur bone, marrow and all - Flintstone style - just great. 24 oz rib eye for two was perfect. Crepinetta and schnitzel rounded out our order. Only down-tick was a lack of more reasonably priced bottles of wine. All in all, though - super meal.
Food was exquisite and fairly priced. Portion size was just right. Great value for high quality. Everyone in my group agreed that everything was delicious.
Great gluten free options. The duck, bone marrow and sweet potatoes were amazing. My partner had the burger, and was disappointed.
Beautiful place, great food and friendly service. What else could one ask for?
Everything tasted very well and the service was amazing, the people there are very sweet and do everything the can to help with a good night dining out!
Amazing food and great atmosphere
Chicken Pot Pie had wonderful flavor and nice crust but inside was more like soup than pot pie; only two pieces of chicken and tiny vegetables.
If you like meat. You will love KQ. Great service. Casual and fun.
One of my favorite restaurants in the city. The "top tier" restaurant for the 13th Street Kitchen groups and by far some of the best entrees and plates being served in the city. The entire staff is well versed in the menu and general pairings. The restaurant is also an actual butcher shop where the meats, poultry, and fish are prepared and cut fresh on the spot. For a restaurant primarily focusing on "meat", the vegetables are also some of the best in the city.
Highly recommend for any event, birthday, anniversary, celebration, or general evening dining!
Creative food and very reasonably priced. Had a great time!
Loved the food, service and great atmosphere (although it is a bit noisy). We shared a few small plates as appetizers and then shared the large meat sampler. Something for everyone and fantastic. Definitely will go back!
Great food and drink as usual wait staff was good overly eager to help us but a little less knowledgeable than what I would expect highly recommend get all the meats if you go with a group it's wonderful
We sat at the bar, which I love. Food and drinks were both great!
I went for my birthday and they made my night so beautiful, and so special. I am so so grateful for their kindness and hospitality. The food was incredible and made my day all the more special.
Weird pricing, items went from a $20 hamburger to a $100 steak, nothing in between
