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. In addition to the five course meal, they provide a great "intermission" in which... More

This restaurant with executive chef John Griffiths is one of the top five restaurants we have eaten at anywhere in the world. Located ina building with no signage, It is so popular that you will need to make reservations two months in advance. You are allowed to walk into the kitchen at any time and talk to the chefs and...

Loved celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary at The Kitchen!. It was like being at a private dinner party. You are encouraged to mingle and walk all over the kitchen--to talk with the chefs and browse the wine closet, etc. We were seated at the bar area where they prep the plates--very fun to watch. Everyone was in a celebratory mood... More

For years my wife and I had heard about The Kitchen and with our anniversary coming up, I thought it would be an extra special treat for us to celebrate it there. Since The Kitchen has only one seating limited to 50 people per night, you either need to call weeks in advance if you are looking to make a... More

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!
