“Awesome meal!!!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

First time at Kil@Wat was a really great experience, from all the staff (especially our server Graham), to the tasty dishes, and very relaxing ambiance. Don't be fooled by this being in a hotel - they do a top-notch dinner.

Ate dinner and breakfast at Kil@wat's.
All meals were delicious.
Our servers at all meals knew their menus inside and out.
They made great suggestions.
Without questions will be going back.

“Very Nice restaurant.”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We only had breakfast here every morning since this was located in the hotel we stayed at. Service and food were very good. Prices were acceptable. I would eat here again. Next time i will try them for dinner.

“Chance in the menu”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Recent changes to the menu make's it more traditional. However the quality is still outstanding. Smaller quality portions with fresh ingredients. More of a steak and chicken menu, less fusion, but more local ingredients and mixing of flavors exist. Only drawback was he experienced at least 5 servers and appeared to be some confusion and overlap ( appetizers came out twice). However, drink service was slow. As in the past, Great quality meal.

“Hidden Gem in Milw”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

First, Intercontinental hotel is modern and elegant, there are 3 nice bars, all is upscale and modern and staff is in tune and excellent...Kilowat restaurant compliments this, not sure why more comments about their dinners, we had an excellent dinner (salads, scallops, Lamb, etc...) and perfect wine pairings from Grahm (sommelier) recommended, chef Richard came out, impressive all the way around with really nice atmosphere, staff and views, nice breakfast next morning too...hotel and restaurant also a perfect pairing, well worth it...5 stars.
