I cannot say enough about this experience. Food delicious, hosts were gracious and funny. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Definitely worth the time spent. Thanks for an awesome time.

Enjoyed watching, tasting and sipping my way through a wonderful meal and cooking show. We were served local wine with each course. I learned some great tips, resources and and some new tasty wines. Portions were perfect, though I would've like another piece of the delicious cornbread. We received recipes for all dishes. There is not discount if you don't... More

From the feeling of great energy when we walked in the door to the amazement when we walked out three hours later. Your memory will be fighting for space between trying to remember all the tastes you sensed and the culinary information received. John and Nick are not only skilled chefs but also great communicators and were eager to answer... More

There's eating dinner, there's fine dining, and then there's the ultimate dining experience. And that's what you experience at A Chef's Kitchen. From the moment the doors open and the 24 patrons enter the kitchen, you know that this will be ordinary evening. The five course, 3 hour dining experience is beautifully organized by the entire staff. The interactive preparation... More

Calling “A Chef’s Kitchen” a restaurant is somewhat like calling a soufflé “just a cheese puff”. There is so much more to this wonderful place that makes it worth returning to time and time again. Specifically, each person lucky enough to be here is in a teaching kitchen. You don’t just watch the creation of the meal you are about... More

It was like being at a cooking show the way they described and demonstrated everything. It was a night of great food paired with some fantastic wines. Chef John's tips for cooking were an unexpected bonus and presented in way even the beginner cook can understand. Would definitely return if in the area.

booked for my parents and they were amazed. The Chef took into consideration my father's food allergies and my mother was presented a special dessert for her birthday. They live close by and visit Williamsburg often but had never visited A Chef's Kitchen. Now, they are looking forward to his next menu!

After hearing rave reviews from friends, we chose to plan a two-day getaway in Williamsburg around this experience and are we glad we did! The three hour evening begins with appetizers and sparkling wine while mingling with other guests and watching and interacting with the chefs as they continue their preparations. The restaurant seats only 24 at tables situated theater... More

My wife and I were vacationing in the Williamsburg area and naturally wanted to go for a good meal. We looked on TripAdvisor about a month before we left and found A Chef's Kitchen as the #1 place for dinner. We were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and learned a lot about cooking. I would advise you to... More

John Gonzales has a wonderful evening in store for you if you are ever in Williamsburg, VA. A six-course meal is prepared in front of you and is it delicious! John and his assistant were very entertaining and educational. A variety of good wines are served along with the meal. Also, the recipes are given out, so you can try... More
