State & Main Kitchen + Bar - Kitchener
Our entrees were very tasty, highly recommend the salmon however bit pricey. Fish tacos were delicious & just enough for the price. Service was great.
Menu has changed and not as good.
We chose the Valentine's Day four course meal offering. It provided excellent choice, within a set menu. Delicious and properly filling. Luke and ensemble staff provided terrific service. Fantastic dining experience.
The food was over cooked and cold. I have been at many State & Main locations and never had an experience like this one.
Starters are almost as expensive as a meal! My steak was only warm and had quite a bit of fat and grisel. Very thin, hard to believe it was 10oz. The potatoes and asparagus were quite hot in comparison.
Easy to make on line reservation. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Nice raised booth. Atmosphere was good....not too noisy. Server was very nice and efficient. Food quality was good. Overall good dining experience. Will definitely return.
Until this evening, I had only had lunch at your restaurant so decided to try a dinner. So glad I did. The meal was absolutely delicious and our waiter Parker provided excellent service!
We booked a reservation 30 days in advance. However, we didn’t know all tables were high-boys. After some discussion we moved to what seemed like one of the few regular height tables. We then waited about 90 minutes to receive our meal when other tables, who arrived after us, were served. Not sure what the issue was but they were definitely short staffed.
Had a great meal for 9. Food was good and all came out at the same time. Kudos to cooks and servers.
Very loud and server not very attentive. Food was so so.
Will not be going back any time soon
Saturday November 2
1-took 30 minutes to get our drinks. When we got the drinks 2 of them were incorrect.
2-took 1 hour to get food. When the food came one of the meals was incorrect and another (the burrito bowl) did not contain hardly any ingredients that are specified in the menu other than a lot of rice!
3-Asked for water for the table at least 3 times.
We sat for over 10 minutes before we saw anyone to even take drink orders. We were considering leaving but then someone stopped by.
When we got our bills, 6 out of 8 bills were wrong.
The food was good, so that saved the experience
Great place, good food, quite enjoyable
Chipotle dip for sweet potato fries needs to be improved. Severely lacks flavour and spice.
I am sad because my favourite applewood salmon burger is not on the menu anymore.
Six guests, dinners arrived together, service was excellent!
Our waitress was amazing and so friendly. We ordered 2 Margaritas and they were terrible. We told our waitress and she took them back ... no problem! She agreed that something was wrong with them. Our food was very good!! We had a party of 4 and their was no complaints on the food! Again ... our waitress was amazing!!
overall it was a disappointing night. The chicken bites had significantly cooled down by the time they were served. The French onion soup was ok. I found the menu lacking in interesting choices. I would not choose to return. At one point the music was significantly turned up and was too loud.
My husband and I came in late for some light food and a drink on a Tuesday night. Our waitress was super friendly. However, the food was disappointing for the price. I ordered the French Onion Soup and a side Cesar salad. The soup alone was over $9 for a very small bowl that was mostly filled with bread pieces which soaked up most of the broth and a thick layer of cheese that was a little overbearing. I love cheese, but this was excessive. The proportions of broth, bread and cheese could be more balanced and a slightly bigger bowl for that price. My husband got the Tuna Poke Bowl and had to send it back to the kitchen for being drenched in way too much soy sauce. All you could taste is salt. He asked for the soy sauce on the side and didn’t end up using any of it. The bowl already comes with some sauce mixed in and didn’t need the extra soy. Maybe we didn’t order any of their signature dishes, but our meal was disappointing. The friendly and helpful service was great through. Definitely 5-stars for service staff!
Hi there, We're so sorry you felt that way about your meals. We are doing a menu change in a month and we will be sure to take your thoughts into consideration. Very glad to hear you enjoyed your service, hopefully on your next visit the food will be more on par with service. Thank you for your feedback.
Husband had the salmon burger with apple smoked bacon. He doesn't usually like bacon in burgers but he said it was really good. My son had the fish and chips and it was a large piece of fish. Nicely fried not too oily. My chicken enchiladas was good but there was so much cheese!
Waiter was great and attentive. Awfully quiet for a Friday evening.
Enjoyed the experience. For a lunch timeslot, I did find the noise level high and a bit hard to talk to my guest.
Not sure what was going on there tonight, but service was SO SLOW. It took ONE HOUR for our family of 4 to get our meal, and when it finally arrived, my husband's burger was cold. AND this was my husband's birthday dinner, to boot!! Definitely not returning anytime soon. Or ever. We'll see.

Went to celebrate a graduation. Food was great! Service was great! A little slow but it was busy so we understood.
Service time was very long between sitting, ordering a drink and delivery of drink. Initially not all parties where asked for their meal order, 3 out of 4 people.
Excuse was that kitchen was swamped. Restaurant 50% full.

Kim was awesome! Our food was hot and came quickly! I was disappointed in my drink. It was a frozen drink, and wouldn't thaw enough for me to drink it! I left over half of it. Next time, I won't order that drink.
WE were the problem with the noise level, apparently! A couple of ladies moved away from us gals because of our laughter. (ooops!) But our server told us not to worry about it. Great experience. Excellent food!
So glad you had a good time, we always love see groups enjoy themselves! Hope to see you again soon!
It was much of what one would expect from a sports bar.
The food was good with lots of great vegetarian options and the service was outstanding!
Service was exceptional. The steak and the calamari were tasty. The butter chicken bowl and the tuna poke bowl were disappointing. The chicken was not tender and it didn’t taste like it was simmered. The person eating the meal said it looked like they put cubes of chicken breast over rice and just covered it with sauce. The poke bowl had very little ingredients; it was 80% rice. Usually, at a sushi restaurant, the rice is 50% of the bowl. I would recommend the restaurant for their service, steak and calamari. I would not order either of those bowls again.
Had a great time. Our server was great. Love the pretzels.
Overall the experience was good. Upon being seated however; one menu given to us had an unknown greasy-like substance smeared on it. (Kind of gross) Our server (Emily) did a great job !!
Waited long time to get service and then drinks and then cutulery
The hostess and server were very friendly. The good was great. Only minor thing is that I ordered the early bird special but was charged full price for it so I didn't get the discount. Didn't notice it until I got home because I wasn't paying attention while I paid.
Regular fries were cold and soggy, sweet potato fries excellent
Great food and drink. Caesars are a must have.
Hubby took me to State and Main for my birthday. Was a very enjoyable evening. Food was really good, a bit noisy but otherwise a great experience. Our server Kim was amazing.
So glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with us! We'll be sure to recognize Kim for her outstanding service! Hope to see you again soon.
Kitchen service was slow it took over 1 hour for our food to arrive

We got the smallest table ? Or a desk?(near the washroom)
We ordered burgers - Bison and french dip.
Bison burger is dry and the French burger is good but the gravy is salty.
And i’ve got a soggy - limp sweet potato fries.
We’re done at state and main. adios !!
Sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience, We would love to speak more with you about your evening with us. If you would like to email us at email@example.com, I would appreciate the opportunity to make it right. Thank you for your feedback
The interior did not look upscale like the exterior and the food was not to the level I expected.

One of the friendliest and most attentive waitresses I’ve ever had. If I didn’t live 45 minutes away I would have offered her a job in sales in my company. Food was excellent and atmosphere was awesome.
So glad you enjoyed your experience with us! Do you happen to remember your server's name? We'd love to pass your appreciation along to her. Hope to see you again when you're next in the area!
