The restaurant was tastefully decorated for Thanksgiving. My husband and I ordered the featured, Thanksgiving Day multi-course dinner special. The appetizer...squash soup presented in a real pumpkin bowl was absolutely delicious. The entree and dessert were equally pleasing. The quality of the food is very high. They even grow their own herbs on the patio when possible. This was the... More

I had the Pubnico haddock and originally being from the area I can tell it was perfect.....my friend had a Mango Asiago Chicken and I really could have eaten that as well......good wine prices, fair to good choices in wine and great servers. All in all....really is a five star.....

Great atmosphere, great staff, great food! I liked how you could walk from the hotel to the restaurant within minutes. The prices are average and portions a good size. Very tasty and good for family's and for business travelers.

I really enjoyed my meal both times I have ate at Kiju's. The wait staff is professional, helpful, and very friendly. The atmosphere of the restaraunt is suitable for a lunch with friends or dinner for a couple. And of course the food is great!

I guess from the look of the place I expected more. Now don't get me wrong the food was good and the service was fine but you get the impression from the decor and menu that it would be a little different. It was a late supper so it was not busy and the service like I said was pretty... More

My wife and I were quite anxious to try this place as we heard good things. The food was good but not over the top great as we had anticipated. The service was not good at all for this type of restaurant. We had to keep asking for water,drinks,etc. I doubt that we will go back.

This is a wonderful restaurant, The decor and ambiance are pleasant and modern - light and airy. The menu offers a nice variety of selections and, from what we saw, all are nicely presented. There are main courses like steak and sea food as well as pub-style items like fish & chips and liver & onions. We had the hamburgers... More

We came here a few times as we were staying in the Connected hotel (Hampton). Food is good (especially the Seafood Choder). But the service is just average. This could be so much better if they just focused more on service.
