Randall Selland is a show in an of himself and then add scumptious food and you've got a memorable evening to remember! There's a large selection of dishes and they will accommodate "picky" palates. I was able to get 2nd's on one dish because I wasn't a fish fan, etc. So, you truly get a unique experience that ensures that... More

I was treated for my birthday. The food was wonderful. The chef even made me a special dessert since I have allergies and could not eat what they were serving. Lots of choices, and unlimited food. The only downside was the cost of additional wine. Way too expensive. Tip: BYOB and pay the corkage fee!

The Kitchen is the epitome of fine dining and fun. Each dish is prepared in front of a small audience of diners who are regaled with stories of the chef and his partners. The master chef also has a penchant for humor and breaks it out often. Not only do you get a healthy dose of comedy, but you are... More

Dinner lasted 4 hours and we were entertained at all times. The Chef was great and the food excellent. It is very pricey but everyone should go there at least once. You have to make reservations far in advance as thry only have one seating. Everything about the Kitchen is first class. So happy I was able to go.

This was a Christmas present given to us by our children. It was a wonderful first time experience for us. There were eight of us and when the doors opened at 6:30 PM. we were immediately seated at a well appointed table. Within a very few minutes our drink orders were taken and a staff member explained what was going... More

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
