WOW. In the neigborhood on a Friday night for dinner and gravitated toward Kevin's because of the b.y.o.b feature, this place impressed me from start to finish. The mussels were excellent. Never had I had them in a broth with so many floating vegetables. Delicious and healthy. The complimentary eggplant concoction on toast was delightful. But the pièce de résistance, the papparedelle with shrimp in lobster cream sauce was otherworldly! Having lived in Italy for a few years, I am skeptical about ordering Italian food in this city for the main reason that it's not cost effective. I guess NY restaurateurs presume that the smaller the portion, the more authentic it is to what you find in Italy...but not necessarily true. At least they're not THAT small in Italy. The other reason is that I'm very rarely impressed with pasta in this city; it's never more than mediocre, at best. Kevin's pappardelle were a very pleasant suprise. Simply put, the dish was phenomenal. For the first time in my life, I paid my compliments to the chef...whom I presume to be Kevin himself. Good thing O'barone went out of business or I may have never discovered this place.

I came all the way from the midwest for a seafood fix and it was well worth it! There were six of us and I think we enjoyed almost everything on the menu. The food was delicious,fresh and cooked to perfection. I can't wait to come back for brunch!

My friend took me there Saturday night. The place is small, but really cute, funky and homey. I tasted the pappardella, the paella and the scallops...All delish. It's a little out of the way but worth the trip. Nice to find a new unpretentious restaurant with great food. Not so easy to find these days.

Kevin's would be the best brunch in Redhook if the waitstaff would pay attention.I have been there twice, the food has been excellent both times. No doubt in my mind, it's one of the best kitchens in Brooklyn. But the waitstaff needs management. The first time our waitress was flustered and running. She made a mess on the bar and couldn't handle all the orders around even though the restaurant is tiny. The second time our waitress gave our order to another table. We waited for 45 minutes and she never noticed we hadn't received our food. She didn't apologize or even smile to make up for her mistake. She spent most of the time texting. The food was great.....once we got it.

What a gem. This is what the NY food scene is all about; finding a culinary master in the places you would least expect it. If this joint was easily accessible there would be a two hour wait all the time. I haven't had dinner there yet but, judging by the three times I have been for brunch, I would wager it's spectacular. Brunch highlights include the shrimp corn chowder, BLT ( best I've had), blueberry pancakes, hallah French toast, and of course the coffee which is from Stumptown's roastery right down the street.
