  • Try the cake and shake, a slice of layered buttermilk chocolate cake paired with a vanilla malted milkshake served in a double shot glass.
  • This place is a bit overrated. The service is great, but the food is just decent. You can definitely take your $$ and go somewhere else. I would go back only if I was already around the neighborhood.
  • Try the Food!
  • You pay a price for service, which was phenomenal! Celebrating a special occasion? They go out of their way to make it memorable. Must try the fried olives stuffed with chorizo. Wine list is huge.
  • Classy and trendy environment. Good place for a date.
  • The olives at mk are one of the 100 best things we ate this year.
  • Pumpkin soup and the white fish with lobster are a must.
  • Ask to sit upstairs! It's a bit more intimate for a date night.
  • Octopus. And fries with truffle butter
  • The MK Anniversary CockTail is a refreshing grapefruity way to begin the festivities!
  • great modern american food. little pricey, but worth it. location kind of sucks though. worth the trip.
  • Amazing meal... Def get whitefish/lobster, salmon, octopus and tarter apps, and two bananas dessert (must). Ask for Armando as server
  • Get the Lobster Salad! So good and they put a lot of lobster in it :)
  • They have got one of the bests. Sauvignon blancs on earth... Claude bay from New Zealand
  • Like the food, the stylish bi-level dining room achieves a balance between elegant and easygoing. Make sure to save room for dessert - pastry chef Kate Neumann is sure to be a rising star.
  • Try Tony's new dessert! Orange Basil! It's light and delicious!
  • Chef Erick Williams creative American cuisine never fails to impress, whether you order a la carte or tasting menu even the simple bar bites menu is thoughtful.
  • Nice atmosphere with great food selections
