This is probably the most expensive restaurant I've ever eaten in, but well worth the experience. I love restaurants with super friendly staff, and The Kitchen did not disappoint. My favorite part of the evening was touring the wine cellar. I had 2nds and 3rds of the lobster if you can believe that. Chef Noah is quite an entertaining fellow... More

You may have been to other top restaurant, but you've never had an experience like this. There is one sitting, and the meal lasts 4+ hours with a break mid way through dinner. The experience starts with a presentation by the executive chef, Noah. (If you ever get a chance to watch Randall do the show, though, do it; he... More

Ok - this is THE place to have dinner in Sacramento. The chefs prepare an amazing menu that varies each week. Wines are paired with food, appetizers you would never believe, main courses interesting foods you may not have tried before, and of course dessert. A whole evening of food, and fun. Can't recommend enough. You will need reservations far... More

I have been here three times. The first time, I couldn't have been more pleased with all aspects of my dining experience. However, the second time it was merely a nice dinner. The last time, was probably closer to somewhere in the middle; better than nice, but not great. I haven't been back, since, but I would take a 'new'... More
