First of all, if you think that you can just make a reservation the day of, you are sorely mistaken. This restaurant books months in advance, so plan ahead!! It is a pre-pay set up and pricey, but so worth it! Alcohol is additional money if you want it when you get there. If you are a small group, most... More

This was a perfect birthday celebration. Both of us enjoy cooking, good food, learning about culinary techniques, and live entertainment... what a combination in one experience. The chefs are all very friendly and willing to share techniques, etc. so be sure to walk around while they prepare the courses. Act like it is a friend's house, go into the main... More

The Kitchen is an excellent restaurant. It is a fun experience and I recommend going with another couple or group of friends. The food is excellent and they have excellent wine choices. You many want to check the menu before you make reservations as they have a set menu. With that said- if you want a Friday or Saturday night... More

Excellent food, entertaining food preparation. Multiple courses of excellent and perfectly prepared food. Culinary masterpieces that everyone must try for a special occasion at least once.

We have been to all of the "5 star" restaurants and by far, this tops all of them. While others have equally wonderful food, these guys put the food together with a fun and enjoyable attitude. You cannot be in a hurry - it's a FOUR HOUR dinner, but (a) the time will fly and (b) you won't leave hungry.... More

First time to dine in the kitchen recommended by my co-worker. Such a pleasant experienced. The restaurant is clean and what I like best is you are allowed to walk or tour around the kitchen. Mingle with the crew while they are preparing the food. Also my favorite spot the wine cellar/closet :) Chef John Griffiths is very knowledgeable, entertaining... More

It is a 3.5 hours dining experience like I've never had before. The best was the sommelier who was very knowledgeable and did some great pairings! The food was good, although not great, some very good dishes and some quite not. I would not return, not a good valué proposition.

We chose the recommended wine pairings and were very happy with the selection.The executive chef John Griffiths was informative, friendly and entertaining.
