Good service and very good food. Braised ribs were excellent. My wife had seared scallops and she found them very good.

KC American Bistro is a perfect place to enjoy very good food in a comfortable setting. The menu isnt large but there's a good selection of appetizers and entrees to choose from. The chef/owner is on site and must pay careful attention in the kitchen judging by the quality of the food. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere... More

Staff was very friendly and courteous. Snapper was excellent, but duck had good flavor but very small portion with way to many beans to fill the plate. Figs has much better duck and portion size. We would go back.

I was part of a large group so the service was a little slow and flustered because we all showed up at once. Chaos at the bar. The wine prices are fair. The kale salad was delicious but could have used some more of the listed manchego cheese. The halibut was fresh and tasty and the redfish and salmon were... More

We were seated at 6 PM, per our reservation, in the back of a relative empty restaurant. Once again, it appears that reservations made on Open Table get less advantaged seating, a similar experience we have had at other restaurants. Our server came immediately, asked us if we wanted a drink and also asked us if we wanted to order... More

KC American Bistro offers an education in dining and sumptuous meals impossible to find elsewhere in this area. I have to travel to Miami for the equivalent in Florida. Try the dates appetizer, pork chops, and caramel cheesecake or the kale caesar salad, scallops, and crème brulee for starters to experience just the start of their range of amazing food.... More

With their liquor license there is no reason KC's shouldn't be the hot spot. It tripped over itself last week. Poor waitstaff can leave the best food with a sour taste. That's what happened. Server was indifferent and at times invisible. When we asked for more time to review the wine list, she left the table and didn't return for... More

Four of us ordered different salads and entrees. The only memorable items were the salads, especially the arugula with apple slices. The rest of the food was average at best. We were seated right away, but waited 45 minutes between the salad and entree. Not sure what the problem was because the restaurant was not full. One entree had to... More

fit for foodies also for wine lovers. you can bring your bottle but there is a $25 corkage fee. I can't tell you what to eat, the appetizers are terrific. One of people at my table had two. The menu is is not overwhelming. I had the grouper for my main. I observed plates coming from the kitchen and everything... More

KC's is a terrific place for dinner. The menu is large and varies; the service is pleasant and efficient,; the food is very good, and the space is comfortable. Try the Ahi.
