    First time coming here from a different city, the food was nothing special and drinks took a while to come we had to ask after we were almost done our food that they forgot the drinks. Service was absent overall the view is the main thing here!

    Decor and view, both nice. Food was average. You should know that the music is very very loud and intrusive. We had breakfast there on a Monday morning at 9am and they were blaring club music. It’s like, read the room. I get it if it’s a weekend or at night but this isn’t Ibiza. Couldn’t hear each other talk, it made our breakfast unbearable. Be prepared for extremely loud music any time of day here.

    The food was underwhelming. My eggs were cold and the coffee the worst I’ve ever drank. The view was amazing, but definitely not worth the nasty horribly overpriced food. Was given a coffee cup that had lipstick on it and the server treated it like it was nothing.

    Occasion: Graduation dinner celebration Ambiance, air, service staff & bar were all awesome. Not wanting to be a complainer; however, spending over a hundred each with a group, we expected hot coffee (not lukewarm), not overly charred & super salty broccolini …& green, not yellow, kale. We laughed at the reason why our salad was sent back to the table because the Chef apparently said it’s the kale variety when it was clearly old yellowed leaves. The broccolini was replaced to which we were grateful. The coffee; however, we just left if be and left it untouched. PLUS: the round bread was fresh off the oven and it was devoured in no time. The oysters were a delight!! Seems the appetizers’ servings were the same as the Main’s and better price SO one gets a better value. The evening we went, only some of the website menu options were presented to us on hard copy menu. We did, however, see other food being served such as burgers, ice cream & meatballs (not on the hard copy menu. One big plus: the staff was very accommodating to move us out to the patio after the pool carpet has been removed AND then to another table before we placed our order because we were seated inadvertently in a very windy spot we couldn’t even hold our menu steady. I’d rate the experience 5* if not for the quality of food. We expected better prepared/cooked/ presented meals in a quality restaurant like Kost. Everything else is 5* The quality of food gets 3* PS. Adding satisfactory images of LIKED plates

    The food, service and view was amazing! Bill was more on the expensive side but nothing crazy. I really enjoyed the overall vibe of the place, will be returning very soon. If your planning on visiting KOST soon, remember to get the octopus as an appetizer, it was the best app I’ve had in over a year.

    Our reservation was at 10:30am and we were seated at 10:50am. This is not respectful from the restaurant. There were a lot of empty tables and I really don’t get why we had to wait for so long. Service was slow and we had to wait 10 minutes to get water. My impression was that the restaurant was understaffed and under poor management. Very bad experience.

    We had reservation at 9:30am. When we get there they asked us to wait in the lobby until 10:10am. Then we went to resturant it took around 1 hour to bring the food on table. We asked for more bread but it took a long time again so we finished or breakfast whithout bread. We really expected sth better and we really disappointed. It wasted our time especially it was my husband birthday that I really liked to surprise him but it was an awful surprise...the only positive point was the nice staffs behaviour.

    I know the service industry is struggling right now but the service we received at KOST was inexcusable. Over 90 minutes wait for food and when it came out the orders were wrong, 5 different staff members were serving us at different times of our stay and each one would ask the same questions (they were not communicating), ordered one round of drinks and waited 2 hours for another round (we never ended up getting that second round) and overall a really disappointing experience for the price of the menu. When we were leaving we had to chase down multiple staff members to pay and even then the machines weren't working and we were standing at the exit for close to 30 mins.

    highly overpriced and food was mediocre at best. Servers snobby - we had three and the last one inside was the best. If it wasn't for the view, I wouldn't have recommended it. Next time I'll come for drinks but don't plan on dinner again.

    Food quality was definitely not something they focus on. The tuna sandwich was missing seasonings and did not taste special, waitress misadvertised The fries as "oh the fried is good" but really it actually just like any other fries you can get at a pub. The steak was cooked fine though, good sauce with it. View was great. Service was not the greatest, they only check on us only when they remembered to, the waiters/waitresses were monotone and did not look like they care about being there.
