Superb service, excellent food, sweet ambience, what's not to like? Wine parings enhance the meal greatly but are not necessary. My husband had Canadian whiskey and survived just fine. The intermission with tables located on the patio as well as inside make it easy to eat more, fresh seafood, between the main courses if you want...of course we wanted... It's... More

This is one of the ultimate dining experiences in Sacramento. From the minute you walk in the door until the moment you leave the staff pampers with great food, awesome drinks, great theater, and a bevy of knowledge regarding all the ingredients and drinks being served.

We celebrated our anniversary at The Kitchen this past year. A short review: Wow! There's one sitting and they decide the menu. Service, food, preparation are all A+. A buffet table helps forestall hunger pangs between courses. The kitchen is open for all to see, and watch the food preparation. Questions about the food and cooking are cheerfully answered. Adult...

This was our third visit to the Kitchen. Always different farm to table. Better than French Laundry and not pretentious. One seating of about 50 people. It is a 4 hour experience with an intermission that includes many exotic dishes. the staff is incredible, friendly and know their food. See pictures for descriptions of food served.

My husband and I wanted to go to this restaurant for a long time. The atmosphere was great, friendly staff, great food...and you can ask for seconds! Research drinking options before going..."house" flight or "premium" flight, additional $85-$135each, corkage is $50. Most economical is not to drink...the chefs know what they are doing and the food was awesome, not sure... More

To celebrate my wife's birthday and based upon a slew of favorable reviews we booked reservations at The Kitchen. The stated price was $175 per person. We arrived at the designated 6:30 pm time and along with 48 others were seated and served a glass of champagne. Then Chavez the Chef, master of the big top, made his "Welcome to... More

We have visited a number of times. Years ago the experience was wow but now clearly it is slumping. Last year was so so but the breakout to the food stations was a highlight.
