The unique experience of stadium seating dining, while being wonderfully fed and educated at the same time, makes this place stand out in a crowd. John Gonzales is personable, knowledgeable and accommodating to any special dietary concerns you may have. The menu is set for the month, and reservations are hard to get, so plan way ahead. He serves his... More

Chef John Gonzales is very amusing as he cooks for you and explains all the steps he takes. In addition, he provides copies of his recipes (some of which you really could cook at home). He gives tips on things to buy, and the meals are excellent. He also tries to have $10 bottles of wine that are quite good,... More

Chef Gonzales constantly entertains and serves some of the best meals any where. Go with friends. It is the kind of place you have to share!

A unique dining experience. On the order of Food Channel classics, such as Emeril's Live. Menu changes every 4 to 6 weeks. Starts off with champagne and hors d'oeuvres with an intermingling of patrons. Proceeds with a sitdown dinner with wine pairing. Provides A feature is that all winds are available for $10 per bottle or less. Disadvantage is that... More

When chef John Gonzales opened A Chef's Kitchen, I don't think he realized exactly what he had created. Every time I visit, I leave saying that this was the best dining experience I've ever had. The menu changes monthly, and getting a reservation is difficult (so plan at least a month in advance), but whatever you do, do not miss... More

We went to this place because it was do highly reviewed and it didn't disappoint! The food was fabulous and each course distinct and different. The only thing I will say is make your reservations far in advance and come with an empty stomach!

My wife and I returned here for another great evening of food and entertainment. When we visit Willaimsburg, we always try to include this spot. The food is very good and expertly prepared, and the accompanying preparation and discussion is wonderful. This month featured New Zealand rack of lamb. I will say that we both enjoyed it very much as... More

This was a unique and very enjoyable dining experience. Just the corn bread and coconut cream pie made the evening, which may sound strange until you've had them, but the rest of the offerings were just delightful. And the presentation and having the meal prepared in front of us was great. A very comfortable setting for us 26 guests. And... More

I was certain that our return trip would be as good as the first. I was right! Chef John and Chef Rick continue to impress us with excellent meals. All courses were perfect, but the cornbread and salads are always the best. And the rack of lamb was superb! Can't wait for another trip back... Always the best part of... More
