We spent last weekend in Norfolk with four friends to attend the NATO Festival and Tattoo. We had a delightful time. We stayed at the Marriott in rooms overlooking the water. Everything was up to Marriott's usual standards. Before the Tattoo, we had dinner at Kincaid's. It is within walking distance of the Tattoo. Dinner was very good. Those that ordered the special "meatloaf" were particularly pleased with their meals. The Tattoo is always wonderful and inspiring. We had attended the Tattoo in Edinburg last August and Norfolk's is, while not as big, was just as enjoyable. We always leave with our feelings of patriotism renewed. The parade was even better than last year and we especially enjoyed the performance of the Celtic singers. After the parade we visited the Botanical Gardens, riding the tram around the grounds. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Although the azaleas were not in full bloom, the gardens are still beautiful. We were sorry to hear the sad story of the eagles that were displaced from their nest in the gardens by the airport and of the female that was run over by a plane. It is sad that we cannot co-exist with such beautiful representations of our nation.

On Sunday, 28th April, after having seen the spectacular Virginia International Tattoo, my boyfriend and I were looking for someplace nice to have dinner. He is an attractive man (if I do say so :) ), dressed in a blazer and tie, and I was wearing a pretty skirt and top. As we were walking down Granby St., we approached Kincaid's and I suggested we stop in-it was about 5:00 PM. We came in thru a side door into the bar, and didn't find anyone to speak to about a table, so we walked toward the front of the restaurant-past a young man changing a baby-on what apparently was the hostess station. We walked past and went to the front entrance area, only to realize that there was no hostess in that area either. Somewhat surprised, we turned around and walked back toward the bar-past the man changing the baby-and looked for the hostess in the bar area. No luck there either. As we turned to head back toward the front entrance, a woman appeared, looked at us and said "yes-can I help you?"--we're not talking welcoming, thanks for coming to Kincaid's here...we're talking "hey-you're obviously lost and I'm busy--whaddya want?" At that point, my boyfriend said that we were looking for a table for two. The response was a rude "do you have reservations? If you don't have reservations you can see if there's something open in the bar.".
I like to think that I'm a reasonable human being, and I understand that restaurants are busy-and it's probably been crazy with the Tattoo going on since Thurs., but this woman's job is literally Customer Service. I've only been to Kincaid's once before, and believe me-it wasn't even close to being good enough to overcome this person's attitude. I know there are others who've enjoyed it--but we won't be back.

We visited during the Christmas holidays and the atmosphere was wonderful. The waiters were very attentive and the food was great!

Visited ODU this past weekend....stayed in downtown Norfolk.....went to dinner here from hotel recommendation. Empty for Friday night approx. 9 pm....staff very nice/attentive. Ordered calamari/salad/Prime Rib/Grilled shrimp...all cooked well and seasoned well. The BIG problem was getting into the place...its attached to the mall.....huge unruly teenage crowd hanging around the outside entrance. Not safe at all.....8-10 police patrolling street across from restaurant where there was a "teen" club. Fights breaking out/kids "punks" verbally threatening. We/my family are pretty "street" wise (live DC area) and we felt uncomfortable. Would not go here again because of this.

They do salmon here like nobody's business. That's what I odered last time. Try it any way they serve it! When the Copper River salmon are running, Kincaid's flies them in fresh. But only for a week or two in late Summer, I believe. Not to be missed! Love the complimentary garlic buttered ciabatta, the artichoke and crab dip, the meatloaf and the seasonal bread puddings and cobblers. Oh, and if you want to be a "regular," just ask for some simple syrup to sweeten your tea. What an old-fashioned touch! Casual elegance and skillfully-prepared seafood, chops and steaks define this fine establishment. Outdoor seating available. Fantastic bar/lounge area transports you to NYC or Chicago!
