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

We went to dinner at The Kitchen after a weeklong food and drink trip throughout San Francisco and Napa. I started to think I'd be fooded out by the time we got to go here, but boy was I wrong. We sat at the counter which I would recommend to everyone and got a front row seat to the show.... More

I have been to The Kitchen a half of dozen times. Top quality from start to finish. Arrive around 6:30p.m. and get ready for a fun long night. This establishment is still my personal favorite to dine in the country. Enjoy!!!

THE best dining experience EVER!!! Celebrated my wife's birthday here at THE KITCHEN. The person that called to confirm my reservation was really nice and helpful. I asked if they do anything for birthday and she said she would help me set that up and make it memorable. Well all I can say is she went above and beyond to... More

The bad news: The Kitchen is ridiculously expensive. The good news: The Kitchen is the best restaurant in Sacramento; beyond that, it's as good as any restaurant I've ever dined in. That includes places like the French Laundry in Napa and Chez Panisse in Berkeley. I'm always surprised that it doesn't garner greater acclaim. Maybe it's the price, but every... More

I had been wanting to go here for years, and The Kitchen did not disappoint. Everything was fabulous and we had an unforgettable experience. The food was actually some of the best I have ever had. Employees and the owner can be seen at our local Farmers Markets in Sacramento purchasing produce, etc fresh from the growers. I really enjoyed... More
