When making reservations def ask to be seated at the counter so you are closer to the action. Good craft beers too. At about $200/pp it's def for special occasions only, but I will return!

I've eaten at the Kitchen a few times and every time I am amazed at how fabulous it is. It's always awhile between visits because it's so hard to get a reservation!! If you are lucky enough to have it be a night that Randall, the owner, is there, it's a particular treat. It's truly an experience to have him... More

Our family had dinner there in December, it was expensive but well worth it. Food was outstanding - the demonstration style dining is very unique. Try to get a place on the counter to get a close up view of the cooking.

I could, of course, go on and on about the show, the service, the food, the experience, but I think that's been done numerous times before. Instead, I want to note one positive and one negative from our last visit. First the positive: The intermission has changed for the better. Instead of all 50 guests crammed outside on the patio...

My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a late birthday dinner here, we met 2 of our friends in advanced and headed over. We brought our own wine under the assumption of the $30 corkage fee, turns out the fee was $50 so we decided to just order bottles of wine from the menu. Before dinner starts, they encourage you...

From the first greeting, The Kitchen is a treat for the senses. It's rather difficult to call it a restaurant because the feeling and atmosphere is unlike the standard fine dining experience. There are very few choices to be made as The Kitchen provides a Prix Fixe affair and numerous courses. The dining room is literally part of the kitchen,... More

My husband & I came here on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday dinner and it was by far the best dining experience I have ever had. Each dish was simple, yet so complex on the palette; it was amazing! I loved their use of seasonal fruits & veggies (I was surprised at how colorful the wintertime fruits were)... More

I'm not sure the room at The Kitchen is big enough for Chef Selland's ego! This dining event is billed as a hands-on diner experience. It turned out to be more of a listen to Randall Selland talk about himself experience. The notes about the dinner indicated that diners were supposed to feel free to move about the space and... More

We've eaten at The Kitchen on six different occasions in the last 3 years and each has been a wonderful occasion. We've sat at the counter where you get an intimate look at the food preparation as well as surrounding tables. However, the food doesn't seem to be as tasty as it once was. I would still recommend The Kitchen... More
