Fantastic Experience

We celebrated my brother and sister in law's 60th wedding anniversary with their family. 26 people in all. It was a wonderful experience. John and his staff put on quite a show with delicious food. I highly recommend this to everyone!

The chef/owner was so entertaining and the meal was incredible. Get there a few minutes early so you can meet others sharing this experience.

A Chef's Kitchen is a no work cooking school. The chef and sous chef are very entertaining, excellent chefs, and are full of helpful hints. All you have to do is watch, listen, eat delicious food and drink lovely wines. This cannot be topped. It is hard to get a reservation.

This is a fun place for lunch or dinner. The food is delicious, but even better, the chef and sous chef are very entertaining. The chef offers perfect wine selections and provides recipes. This is my second visit -- and I'll be back again.

What a wonderful evening, with entertainment and great food rolled into one 3-hour package! Loved the presentation, choice of dishes, and the fact that they could handle a vegetarian without pointing to me and announcing to the rest of the group that I was one! My husband was so thrilled that they gave him a special meal of scallops since... More

Words cannot describe the evenings experience. One must attend. The setting, the food, the wine, the host/chef presented a culinary magic carpet ride.... for the taste buds.

This is like a cooking show, where you get to eat the food. John is a master chef and the restaurant has under 30 seats, stadium-style. John and his sous chef prepare a five course meal, including champagne and wine with every course, for a set price. Everyone eats the same selections (but John is exceptionally flexible if you have... More

Second visit to this most excellent restaurant. While it is a little pricey its an absolutely top notch dining experience. The chef and sous chef are friendly, funny and knowledgeable. The wine parings are great and the food is first rate all the way. I can't recommend The Chefs Kitchen enough. Great for a special occasion.

My wife and I have been there at least 20 times with other friends and find every time to be different, different food and a complete culinary experience. Especially the learning of how they create all the wonderful food. Never before have I seen a restaurant consistently rated five stars by every review!
