A Unique & Memorable Experience Not to be Missed

After reading about A Chef's Kitchen for years and watching for the perfect menu, my husband and I finally decided to give it a try in December for our anniversary, when the menu featured steak and scallops, our two favorites. I called to make reservations in November and we barely squeezed in. I... read more

First of all this place is impossible to get on the phone and even worst to make reservations. Let me say that I went because of all the great reviews, guess they saw something I didn't?? The food was ok but certainly not stellar and its not really dinner its more entertainment. Plus over $160 a couple just for the... More

This is a kitchen stadium venue. The chef/owner prepares a specific menu, pares with wine, explains technique, provides recipes, and serves to all. The food is outstanding.

What a fantastic evening of wine and food and being educated in products to use and step by step preparation of several dishes. The soup was outstanding followed by a delicious salad with the best corn bread I have ever tasted. The dishes continued to amaze. Each dish with a new wine. And of course an amazing dessert to finalize... More

This was a wonderful evening of fun and food. My husband and I went there last week while on vacation in VA. We lucked out because there were a few cancellations so we got a last minute reservation here. From start to finish, it was a lovely time. They went out of their way to accommodate my vegetarian diet, making... More

Enjoyable fun entertaining experience, like being on the set of a TV cooking show and you get to eat each course as it is prepared. The food is very good and the Chef is very entertaining. You also get to go home with all the knowledge on how to prepare everything. Not a place for children good for adult couples... More

I went here with a group of neighbors and had a blast. I had originally thought it was a hands on cooking school but it is more of a demonstration. We enjoyed what they were preparing and enjoyed the company too. the food was good not great but good. You can look at their calendar to find a menu that... More

Years ago our friends told us that A Chef's Kitchen was a not-to-be-missed treat and they were absolutely right. Chef John and his team prepare you a delicious multi-course meal while explaining each step in the process. You also learn cooking tips that you can use at home. While it's pricey and requires reservations made well in advance, the fabulous... More

Super food, wonderful learning experience..makes for a very different evening. Like watching Emeril, but everyone gets to eat and drink. A favorite to treat out of town guests..reservations necessary.
