KB is a great place to have a special birthday luncheon, with friends!! I enjoyed celebrating my birthday with family and friends and Kevin, Jamie and all of their staff made a lasting impression. We were given a choice of two appetizers ( the pear...and onion bruschetta was delicious), four entrées, all of which were good and two desserts: carrot cake and they made it without coconut, as some guests had allergies and a flavourful chocolate torte. Overall, the service and food was excellent!!!More

Have been meaning to go here for quite some time, we finally made and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing. The grilled Octopus starter followed by the Tuna I was in heaven. The rest of my group who love pasta devoured the pasta...with lamb ragout. It nice to know I have another go to restaurant in Durham.More

What has happened to this restaurant? Ordered calamari…so chewy couldn’t eat it and had to send it back. Our first bottle of wine was off. Ordered the duck. Big disappointment…the fat was not rendered and the skin was not crispy. Very underwhelmed with the duck.

Was looking forward to a birthday dinner out as KB had so many good reviews. Starters the lobster bisque was so salty it was inedible. No lobster near it, I think chef opened a tin of tomato soup and added salt. The manager suggested some...bread to go with, but 10 minutes later he came back with 3 burnt pieces of toast. We also tried the whipped feta appetizer. No where on the menu did it say with white anchovies. But there they were yuck. Were told that's how it comes. No one ate it. The mains were just ok, my pasta dish was also too salty to eat but I didn't want to complain again so I had a few bites of my daughters dinner and came home and had a sandwich. If there is a chef in the kitchen he needs to go back for a refresher course as that was one of the worst meals I have had, and it wasn't cheap. Not even a slice of pie for the birthday boyMore

I find the menu a hit/miss. The menu sounds fantastic but I am a little disappointed half of my visits there. The atmosphere is nice but always a little cold. Staff are lovely. Good wine selection.

Love this restaurant and happy to support in these times even though we have moved to Port Hope. We had the take out Father’s Day menu today. Lamb shanks and all the trimmings. It was fantastic. Quality of the food is outstanding. Thanks for making...a lovely Father’s Day for our familyMore

We are from Pickering and we ordered the Veal Two Ways for four. The portions are generous and the food was amazing. We have eaten at KB before and were not disappointed by this takeout. It is not easy to run a restaurant during this...time but KB is doing it with great efficiency, quality and safety.More

We have eaten at KB many times and felt confident that ordering one of their Take Out meals during Covid 19 would provide us with the same quality as their dine-in options. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The Veal ribeye was nicely done, but...definitely needed more jus. The rapini was burnt. Most of the ravioli was tasty but needed more sauce and some of them had overdone hard edges and were inedible. Salad was fresh and the dressing was great but should have been separate on the side. Fortunately we also ordered their amazing duck pate and it was as delicious as always! I'm sure that preparing Take Out is trickier than in-house, but I'm sure you could do better.More

We enjoyed their Sunday roast beef dinner, recently. Order online or by phone (Jamie thanks for being helpful) in the afternoon and pick it up at the window. The dinner consisted of perfectly cooked beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, side salad, freshly baked bread and...dessert. You can order 2or 4 portions. We ordered two and had leftovers the next day. We always enjoy our meals at Kevin's restaurant, where attention to detail and great service, make it special.More

KB really is as close as you can get to perfection in the restaurant industry. There is nowhere better for special occasions, casual dining with your friends and family or business meetings. Every time we visit, we get TOP quality food and excellent service. The...owner, management and staff are truly wonderful people. Whether we are doing a casual dinner, or Saturday cocktails, it is truly a memorable experience.More
