I understand that a restaurant needs to turnover enough to be profitable so you can only sit for 2 hours and the portions are Tapas size. I ordered the Icelandic cod siting on 2 slices of bread with nothing else on the plate. This $20...plate was finished in 2-3 bites and though the fish was well cooked, it was so salty that you couldn’t taste the fish. If you live in the area, the 2 hour time window makes sense but not worth it for me coming from out of town to come just for this restaurant.More

We ordered five dishes and four of them were up to the Main’s normal high standard. Of particular note was the dish of lamb chops with the delicious zucchini feta salad. The only dish we didn’t like was a “special” surf and turf consisting of...pulled beef over a cod and sweet potato cake, topped with foie gras. Sounded great but to my taste it didn’t work. The flavouring of the beef was middle eastern, which I normally love, but not in this dish. The fish cake was nothing special and was overwhelmed by the beef. Foie gras was like three lumps of fat. Texture and tastes did not work for me.More

got to say the food was great,the service was also ok but having said that a couple of servings were cold the waitresses attitude….had no interaction what so ever never smiled. She never went the extra mile and even had the nerf of charging a...automatic 18% tip without even telling us. That’s probably the reason she doesn’t smile or go th3 extra mile.More

This Tapas restaurant is worth crossing the bridge for, if you don't already live off island. Creative dishes served up in a lovely ambiance, with attentive service. Don't forget to bring along your own wine and make reservations so you're not disappointed - the locals...love this place too, so it's usually booked up!More

Wonderful meal yesterday evening at Main Kitchen. Warm yet cool atmosphere and engaging staff from the hostess, waitress to the chef. Menu was diverse and delicious. Separate gourmet store was fun to shop.

Unfortunately they completely ruined my great experience with them!!Was amazed by the food and ambiance, but after I advertised this place to so many of my clients and friends they made me very disappointed!!We called Thursday night to reserve for table of 4 and got...lucky to reserve the table for Saturday. Friday my friend, who made reservation got call from the restaurant and didn't answer, because she was at work and couldn't pick up the phone. She didn't call back, because it was late,so next morning when she called back the reservation manager sad that our reservation has canceled, because we didn't confirm Friday!!Seriously from one day to next you have to confirm, and if you can't answer, or you lost your phone or something else, they just going to cancel your reservation and you wouldn't even know!!!!!First time I see thing like that!!!We have left with no other place to reserve the table, because it was too late on the Saturday!!!Very disappointed!!!More

Great food for take-away or dining-in. I'm a regular patron and highly recommend it. However, when seated inside a full house of customers is too loud to have normal conversation. I love the food and service but loud echoing decor is a negative.

A friend had organized a group dinner for Friday March 13 at the Main Kitchen . my wife and I had confirmed we would attend. Unfortunately This turned out to be the day the gov’t announced the precautionary measures due to covid-19 and we cancelled...after hearing their recommendations to avoid crowds and public places. Apparently so did a few other invitees. The restaurant charged the organizer of our dinner $55.00 per cancellation. These are tough times for all and particularly the restaurant industry but the cancellation charge was equal to a 3 course dinner with taxes and tip. I realize this was a late cancellation and the restaurant deserves some compensation but the not the cost of a full meal . I reimbursed the organizer of the dinner $ 110.00 as she did pay the restaurant but can’t understand how they feel this was fair . I hope their food is easier to digest than their cancellation fee. As a side note they have posted on their website that they are their to support the community during these tough times . This was definitely not the case in this instance.More

Visited The main kitchen for the first time last night, enjoyed the open kitchen concept and liked the fact that it felt like we were dinning in a little market store :) Coming from the industry I do have a little constructive cristisim regarding the...service, the waitress was very nice and had a positive attitude but did not once do a quality check on the food or askhow we were doing. Once we had finished our first dishes we had pilled them at the corner of the table where they remained untouched for over 20 minutes. Food was amazing and loved the tapas style selection , great choices to please all tastebuds. I just feel that the service was not up to standards of what it could be. She was very nice but lacked on the steps needed to make it a great dinning experience.More

Very quaint little restaurant nestled in the heart of Hudson village ... from the out side you would walk right by it and that would be a mistake !! They say it’s a Tapas Menu ??well great bang for your buck, don’t be fooled what...they call Tapas are actually almost full size plates Had Squid Gnocchi with a fried Egg on top just UNBELIEVABLE !!! A must visit but you’d better reserve the restaurant holds from what I saw 20 seats Service is awesome waitress knew menu like the back of her hand and very friendly It’s bring your own wine and nobody pushes you out the door to turn a table ! check it out you won’t de disappointed !!More

Have not dined in yet, but did host a dinner party at Easter where the main portions of the menu were from The Main Kitchen. Also had the cannoli for dessert. They were filled just prior to pick-up. Utterly amazing. Thank-you MJ!!!
