Upscale new American restaurant. Come here with an open mind because they have a very short but interesting menu. You work you way down the menu from appetizers to entrees then deserts. We ordered their beef tartare and the trout. Both are raw but freshly delicious. The restaurant is filled with natural sunlight in the afternoon and the inside is beautiful. Would go again.
One of its kind restaurant with one of its kind menu items. The staff was courteous and polite and did accommodate special requests. The server explicitly asked for dietary restrictions upfront and accommodated modifications. We tried the roasted butternut squash, it certainly is a must try if you plan on having a no meat day :). It had the perfect combination of cream and nuts. We couldnt try the dessert but they looked real yummy.
We had the pleasure of dining at Kindred Restaurant in Davidson, North Carolina and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed. The food was truly amazing and exceeded all of my expectations. The standout dish for me was the duck fat potatoes with crab fat mayo. It was a flavor explosion and something I will never forget. The cauliflower soup and ricotta occhi were both delicious and well executed, and the lettuce salad was incredibly flavorful. What made the experience even better was the exceptional service. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to all of our needs. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time and I felt well taken care of. I highly recommend Kindred to anyone looking for a memorable dining experience. The food, service, and atmosphere were all top notch and I can't wait to go back and try more of their menu. If you're in the Davidson area, be sure to check out Kindred, you won't regret it!
Kindred was an ideal dining experience for our group of five including out-of-towners and our 10-year old son. The food was incredible (only one miss out of eleven dishes), the drinks superb, and the service and ambiance were top tier. Our experience felt fun, relaxed, and luxurious. We will return again and again from Concord to enjoy all seasons via the Kindred menu.
We had an amazing experience. Set outside so we didnt have to wait, and we never had to wait for anything. Our server Mallory was amazing. The food was five star! Cannot blame them for the heat or the bugs but they kept the ice coming!
