This is a true dining experience

If there's one place I would suggest to go for a special occasion it would be A Chef's Kitchen. Like others have said, you do have to plan ahead and call for a reservation in advance.

Others have said it is hard to get a reservation, the key is to just book the reservation a couple of months in advance, the menu may not be available. When the menu does become available and you don't like the selection, just change your reservation to the next month. We often go with friends who have dietary restrictions and... More

This is a great place to have a dinning experience. The setting is of a classroom, the chef teaches the crowd what he is cooking. Jokes and a nice conversation entails. HOWEVER, it is absolutely TERRIBLE to make a reservation. You have to call, no online reservation which is a HUGE downside, and good luck getting them to answer the... More

What a wonderful way to have one of the best meals of our lives. A true dining experience with fun, laughter and great food. Enjoyed the services of the chef as well as his assistants. Knew from the start of the doors being opened at 6:30 it was going to be a wonderful dining experience. The food and the pairing... More

What a great meal! Thanks to our concierge at the hotel for getting us reservations. Truly one of the best meals we have ever had and the "show" is a true learning experience. A totally awesome evening.

Had dinner at Chef's Kitchen on 12/31. What a great way to celebrate New Year's Eve! Arrived about 6:15 to check-in and pay ($85.50 + tax per person). Cherie does a great job welcoming folks and serving throughout the evening! Doors opened at 6:30 with champagne, apps of blue cheese, ham nibbles and caviar. Seating was great and tables were...

A great evening! Chef John and his assistants turn out a spectacular meal, while teaching and entertaining. The dinner was outstanding, the wine pairings were perfect. A tremendous value! I would highly recommend A Chef's Kitchen.

If in the area, this is a must, Chef John is absolutely awesome. I have been to A Chef's Kitchen 3 times, each visit is the 'best'... I can't say enough good about the evening, atmosphere, and most of all the delicious cuisine. Do yourself a favor and call for a reservation. You will be well on pleased!
