Krafty Kitchen did not disappoint!! We had a larger group reservation and the service was on point, the food was incredible (do NOT miss out on the duck fat fries) and the hip hop brunch elevated the whole experience. Will be back ASAP.

Love this place other than it is hard to resist the Chef’s Table! Have had it 4 times and Krafty continues to impress! Drinks and menu items all delicious.

Food was great. Service was excellent. As the evening wore on the ambient sound increased to the point of we could no longer carry on a conversation.

This was our second visit to Krafty kitchen. We were so thrilled with the service the first time that we took friends with us the second time. Unfortunately the service was lacklustre and at times non existent. The food is good but service is not consistent

Was disappointed in our first experience as there was a Christmas party taking place and our waitress discouraged us from ordering entrees as a result of a slammed kitchen. The event was so loud we could not even hear to talk at our table. Would suggest when there is a special event don’t accept reservations... can’t imagine this is the type of service you want to offer.

Food was great!
A group of us went for brunch.

The only issue was our friend ordered coffee and Baileys, we were told by the waitress they don't have Baileys and then watched the bartender pour multiple Baileys :/

Not sure I would have the chef's table, again. Found the wine pairings less than optimal. Would recommend something from the menu and your own wine selection. Table items ok.

Billed as having one of the best burgers in town... for $23
Burger was not cooked per request and it took forever to have it served again, even then it was still not cooked as ordered.
The noise level was so high that we had to shout at each other all night to have a conversation.
Hard surfaces everywhere make the noise escalate to very uncomfortable levels.
Server Zach was terrific, all other dishes were very good.
Too bad they couldn't get a simple burger right.

Servers were great and the theme is amazing, undoubtedly a Greta brunch spot. Unfortunately my food was too salty to eat, they took it off the bill and were great about it. I was a return customer and super happy with everything else.

We had dinner here, the service was a little slow but our server was awesome. We had the crab cakes and pork belly and they were great. I had the chili something drink and it was SO good.

Delicious cocktails (we had cherry manhattans and Caesars). Tasty appies (rice wraps, General Tsao's tofu). Excellent entrees (wagyu beef was nice and tender, braised beef was flavourful, char was flaky and buttery). Enjoyed the desserts (brownies, cookies, parfait). I had a really nice americano. Not sure what happened tonight in the kitchen, but it seemed to take forever with our entrees and no indication as to why it was taking so long. Drinks, appies and desserts all came in a reasonable time, but it did seem to take about an hour and a half to get our mains. Luckily, we were catching up with old friends we hadn't seen in ages and had much to talk about, but it certainly would have been much harder if we were looking for a relatively everyday dining type of experience. The waitress was lovely and explained the dishes nicely. The very young teen waiter was adorable and enthusiastic; a keen learner.

The food was fabulous, the drinks were fabulous but sadly the service was slow. Had we not been so hungry it would have been fine to wait but we were famished so I think our experience didn't end up being perfect - close but not perfect!

The review would have been higher but the dessert was disappointing. My wife had the burger and I had the fish and it was amazing! :) Flavor combinations that were exciting, yet fitting... the main course was incredible.

We always thoroughly enjoy our meal at Krafty Kitchen, the people are great and the food is so good and creative. Not your average steak and potato dishes...always interesting and unique. I think the one area that could be improved is the wine selection. We have so many amazing local wineries but I feel the list is way too small and does not showcase within that small list the best there is to offer in the region.

This was my second time at Krafty Kitchen and this time I had their Burger and some cocktails.
Both cocktails and the burger were really very good and my rating would have been better if it wasn't for the fries which I really found sub-par and disappointing. I also don't like their policy of not making any substitutions. Can't even choose a salad as replacement for the fries that come with the burger? Really???

We really enjoyed our evening! The staff were friendly, extremely knowledgeable and unobtrusive and the food was truly delicious.
We ate on the patio which, in itself, was quiet but the neighborhood is quite noisy with motorcycles, and emergency responder sirens. Nothing the restaurant can do about that.

We have considered going to Krafty several times but this was our first visit. The décor is a bit rustic industrial. I am not a fan of the closeness of the tables but overall we had a great evening. Interesting menu and a couple of decent beers on tap. We will go back again.
