    The food was delicious, the restaurant is beautiful, and the staff were wonderful. We were incredibly well attended to. I will be dreaming about the popcorn octopus for months to come. Definitely made taking my friend out for her birthday a great experience.

    There are several elements that constitute a great restaurant experience, and it starts at the door, flows to the table and the server, the ambience around you, and of course the food. Kama has been on my "must go" list for a while now as my son has been raving about it. He described the food as "some of the best he's had in the city" and so I waited until we could go together. My first experience with Kama was Nya as we walked in. Bigger than life personality, million-watt smile and exuding confidence, poise and pride in her role. WOW. Once seated we were greeted by our server, offered water and drinks and while waiting, I let my son dive into the menu. What fist made me wonder about our service was how the sangria was presented and "served". Wine glasses and a huge pitcher filled with sangria and a bucket-load of ice. Our server did not pour the first glass (odd) nor was the sangria served with some kind of stopper to prevent the ice from escaping. I poured our first glass without too much drama but later on, trying to get the second refill out turned into a nightmare. Ice everywhere, sangria spilled. I asked our server for something to block the ice, and while we were provided a spoon, I'm unsure if it was intended to be in the pitcher originally, or something from the kitchen. Although we kept the same plates throughout the entire session, our server failed to notice the ice cubes, then the pool of water that had accumulated in them. I really wanted him to notice. I wonder if plate changes might be a part of service later. Moving onto the menu - My son ordered his "hits" - the grilled Halloumi (great simple execution), Cucumber Salad (love the flavors, especially the cucumber), Beef Kefta (awesome flavors and textures), fries with Feta Bagna Cauta (i would have licked the bowl) and closing with the Halibut Cheeks (cooked right and with great flavors). Overall, was worth the wait and looking forward to coming back soon, if only to be greeted by Nya.

    Had an amazing birthday dinner in their private dinning area. The ambience at Kama is always intimate and cozy. The food and drinks are phenomenal. The beef kafta is ALWAYS a must.

    The food was fantastic but came too quickly...order one thing at a time...otherwise it all comes and you dont have time to truly enjoy. The pasta was great...but was not enough to share with 4. Could have easily had more noodles for the meat and sauce. what we got was not worth the price. Same with the fish cheeks... Our server was amazing and knew just what we needed. Washrooms are outside the restaurant in the building. No security, no nothing...did not feel safe.

    Good food, negative experience with hostess starting the experience by saying we needed to be out by an hour after our reso to accommodate another reservation and then leaving when multiple tables were open. Definitely started the evening off on the wrong foot.

    Lovely addition to the Beltline District, beautiful ambience, and tasty bites. Portions are small, so expect to order more than you would normally. Service was great! The patio faces inward to a courtyard, muffling the busy traffic of 11th & 12th Ave. We visited during happy hour, but to come for a full dinner, expect to pay $$$$ to leave satisfied. I’d add this restaurant to a special occasions list; it’s a bit too pricy to call it a everyday goto spot.

    It was our third visit to Kama. We enjoyed every dish our first two times. We usually order octopus (very good), halloumi was very good. I really enjoyed gnocchi. The last time we ordered fish (pickerel)- it was too salty; Gambas was just ok and too pricey for the taste you get. Lamb sirloin was also just ok. Charred brocoolini was kind of tasteless. For desert we had halva creme brulee-and it was lovely.
