Service was so friendly and attentive! We ordered multiple sharing plates, all were very good, but some were items I wouldn’t rush back to order and the portions were small. The tuna poke was fine, not very distinctive esp for the price. Oyster poor boy was very tasty with wonderful flavor and texture although the bread was over toasted so there was a definite burnt taste. Octopus was good but not a must order. The highlight was the Thai coconut soup, would go back just for this item, it was outstanding!!! Plus I highly recommend the Brooks Pinot noir, delicious. More

Such a fun place for a ladies night out! But saw a lot of people there just for a nice dinner out, date night, etc. It is a beautiful restaurant, great ambiance, a good variety of seating (tables, booths, bar, private dining areas). I was pleasantly surprised by the food. There is a wide variety of food on the menu so it can be overwhelming. But I would recommend ordering many dishes to share with your group. Definitely get the pork dumplings as one of your starters. The branzino was incredible. The triple pork fried rice was also amazing. We wanted to try a beef dish but they're all $$$ which is understandable given the quality of beef they use. You must get dessert. The warm chocolate cake was amazing! More

Overall the place is nice, staff is friendly. Not at all impressed with the $18 lunch steak salad. It looked like it was put together by a 5 year old, avocado was missing, the cherry tomatoes where whole, the size of a walnut. Attempt to cut them and you would squirt tomato juice all over yourself.. Plus the 25 min waiting time... for a salad??? Would give it another try, as I said the place is lovely, staff is very nice.

Great food, and we tried 8 different items, all outstanding! Service , by Mark, was exceptional. I noticed that even when two large parties were sat for Mark to serve, his pace went up rather than our service level going down and yet Mark never looked 'hurried or rushed'. We will be back. More

Kiki’s is always terrific. The onion soup and salad lyonnaise were both outstanding. The duck, poli roti, and steak were equally satisfying. And the apple tarte and profiteroles desserts were wonderful. And the wine list is very reasonably priced. Great menu, excellent service, nice vibe—-very reliable. We visit Kiki’s regularly. More

Such a unique, fun place! My friend and I shared a drink and there didn’t seem to be much in it the waitress checked it and it was frozen to the side and comped us the drink without me asking. We stayed in ordering more due to the great service and delicious food on the Pu pu platter. More

Five of us were attending a professional conference, and wanted a quiet place to eat and talk with good food. Benny's was perfect, with probably the best steak I have ever had! Paul our server helped ensure that our evening was enjoyable and pleasant. He was so knowledgeable about the sources and types of meats and wines. Truly a delightful evening. I would highly recommend Benny's if you are looking for an exceptional dining experience! More
