Kincaids on the Redondo Beach Pier was quite the experience. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful with its décor and ocean views. The food and service was spectacular. Matt our server was extremely knowledgeable and one of the few servers who NEVER interrupts you in mid speech. 5 stars for that alone.

We started with the crab cakes with 2 different sauces…lemon butter and sweet chili, both delicious along with the delicioussmoked salmon appetizer with a great presentation. It was served with a side of fresh gerkins atop grain mustard. The salmon is mixed with caviar, capers. To be scooped up with hand made potato chips Enjoy some of their specialty cocktails such as the Blueberry crush cocktail is amazing with crushed whole blueberries and Skinny margarita- one of the best I’ve ever had.

For entrees, go for the Halibut cheeks if they have them in as they are seasonal…excellent but don’t order if you’re not a fan of cheese with fish as they’re crusted with Asiago and panko crumbs. The halibut cheeks are served with thin asparagus stalks with an unbelievable butter sauce and Lobster tail was broiled to perfection, served with drawn butter, steamed asparagus and Yukon mashed potatoes. The Yukon potatoes although probably fattening are worth the splurge, trust me.   Other dishes we saw and took photos of were the salmon and halibut below.

Although Kincaid’s signature desserts are the Key Lime pie and Burnt cream…. You have to try their Pear Bread Pudding….topped with vanilla ice cream and a bourbon sauce…. delivered direct from heaven. This desert is especially good for people who don’t want an over indulgent super sweet finish to their dinner. Overall, a fantastic experience and chef Ramon (picture below serving our desserts), who worked at Palamino in Westwood for a long time, is the head chef.

I recently dined at the Kincaids in Oakland right near the water.  What a beautiful view right on the water.  The service and staff were so hospitable and the food was very good.  Don’t miss the steamed clams and smoked salmon appetizers.  They have a nice variety of soups and salads along with a nice cocktail/wine list.  Try the blueberry crush martini as it was delicious.  For my entree, I went for the seafood ettoufee, which is their signature shellfish dinner of prawns, scallops and clams on top of cheese grits.  A very nice different option you don’t see everyday.
