In a nutshell we went to celebrate for a friends' birthday. We were the only people in the restaurant eating and drinking at a table, there was a show going on. Our server was obviously inexperienced and incredibly slow. Food took forever to come out and when it did the quality was poor. As a reference our reservation was at... More

I hit up this lounge by chance while in Ottawa with my daughter for a basketball tournament. It was a pretty late dinner and I heard live music so I decided to go in. Boy was I surprised! The ambiance was exceptional. It was casual sheek and the wait staff were super cool. I had the chicken wrap and my... More

I was in town for a meeting and a friend and I went in search of sushi in the market. Kinki had been recommended so I checked the reviews and to be honest they were all over the place but we decided to give it a shot. It was empty when we arrived on a Tuesday night at 6pm so... More

Went here on a late Saturday afternoon with a Groupon. There was no one in the restaurant when we arrived so we were a little leery. Excellent service, superb sushi and the sushi nachos were fabulous. Extremely fresh food and decent portions (we added a few extra items) and the cocktails were also tasty. All around a great place and... More

I really love this venue and all the staff. Very welcoming and cozy. I've had some issues with customer service when it came to private events but with management. The staff who work day in and day out are amazing and truly make the place what it is!

The service is very slow; we were the only table there and we waited about one hour for our brunch order. The food did not come at the same time for the whole table and some people's food was cold. The bathroom was very dirty as well. I will not go back there, total disappointments.

When you have your own family, the opportunities for going out to lunch with a sibling are few and precious. So it was, that spending a day with my brother from Calgary, who loves sushi, we cam to be seated at Kinki at 1 o'clock on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. The fact there was only one table occupied should have... More

Arrived at 7:00 pm as a part of a group of 20 kids and parents to have dinner. Nice atmosphere but we were told immediately menu had changed and we could only order a small selection of the food in the menu. Ordered food at 7:20. At 9:00 the waiter came by again to reconfirm our order from almost two... More

Restaurant was dead. 2 tables. Waited over an hour for salad to arrive and sushi. Brutal. Never again. Glasses filthy. Service terrible.
