    So disappointed! I much rather a review centered around compliments but Sunday was not the day. We heard about this restaurant offering vets a free meal & the rest of the group was to receive 50% off. We had a noon reservation & they were not ready for the 6 of us. Once we (6) got seated we let Sergio out server know we had 2 vets at our table (all of us over 65 years old). We did not receive the discount- Sergio said we although we arrived by noon we had not ordered even tho he said he’d make sure to take care of us He didn’t & never said a word. I asked when we received the check “what happened “ he explained the manager would not approve. So we were charged full price minus $30 ($10 off each vets meal & comp’d a birthday dessert) & they of course added the full 20% gratuity. $285 later - we will not be back.

    This was our first time dining at Kitchen 86. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic and the prices were in line and better than most other places we have been. We went for breakfast but will definitely be back for dinner soon.
