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 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!

Came here for a great meal. The atmosphere is awesome and the Chef is amazing. I thought that the show that Chef John Gonzales was very well done. You never get bored and he answers any question that you have in the audience. Each course was delicious and each plate was made with love and pride. Chef Nick was funny... More

We had a lovely dinner last night at A Chefs Kitchen on our anniversary. This is our second visit and won't be our last. Each time, we find ourselves mesmerized by the useful and little known food and technique facts shared by owner Chef John. The show was funny, insightful and delicious! Well worth the price. As well, don't miss... More
