Meet Our Team

Kenwood's Restaurant & Tap is a family-owned and operated restaurant and a full bar serving American comfort food and seasonal dishes in a casual upscale environment, located in the heart of Costa Mesa's Mesa Verde neighborhood. 

The chef-driven menu is crafted with local and seasonal ingredients by Le Cordon Bleu-trained Johnny Martinez, who leads the culinary team as executive chef.  

The full bar features 18 draft beers along with a curated wine selection and signature craft cocktails from our mixologist.

The dining area features a community table, intimate tables, and bar area seating. Additionally, a small stage will often host local acoustical performers. The relaxing outdoor patio includes comfortable lounge seating, sofas, and an outdoor community table. 

Dan Kenwood, Ken’s brother will lead as director of operations. 

Our family looks forward to welcoming your family!
