Kindred was absolutely amazing! The ambiance was modern art deco and although we didn't sit outside, the side patio looked lovely as well. We started with the pickles and duck fat potatoes and split the gnocchi ragu and mushroom tagliatelle. All of which were stunning - we literally ate every morsel of food they served it was so good. Our server was also well informed about the menu, attentive, and friendly. Bonus that you could scan a QR code on the bill and pay virtually! We will definitely return and recommend to our friends!

I proposed to my girlfriend last night. Manager Tammy and waitperson Abigail were absolutely perfect in executing everything I'd asked for ahead of time. They were generous, flawlessly professional in all ways, and celebrated along with us. The food was amazing, as always. We will carry fond memories of this night and cherish our evening for years. Bravo Kindred!

This was an extremely disappointing dining experience. My husband and I have been coming here for years and most recently decided to go for my birthday. The food which has been excellent in the past is now hardly edible. The blue cheese salad tasted like a bowl of lettuce. Once we were able to get a side of the salad dressing to put on the salad it was pretty tasty. The beef tartare was overwhelming salty and was sent back. The okra tasted burnt and was also very salty and sent back. The lobster gnocchi was okay but definitely not worth the price. One of the coolest things about Kindred was they would give you cake on your birthday, making it a great place to celebrate, but we were told they no longer do slices of birthday cake for birthdays due to an increase in food prices. We left with a bill over $100, still hungry, and extremely disappointed. Dont think we will be back.

Excellent food and service! Worth the trip from Charlotte! Ample seating outside. Parking can be challenging on weekends. Must try the 'out of office' cocktails! Highly recommended

Wow Wow.. Thats all I can say. Everything about Kindred is absolutely splendid. The dining was an experience. And an outstanding one. The food is amazing. The drinks are amazing. The service was amazing. Wow Please go here. They were very busy when we went but its so worth it. And when you do, order the oysters, pickles, and fries. Truly 3 of my favorite small plates. 100000/10 would recommend this to everyone and anyone. I was not expecting such a superb experience.
