We recently enjoyed a long evening at this restaurant. With a single very limited and one seating per evening, it's not easy to get a reservation, but it is well worth the extra effort. Dinner starts with a bubbly wine and a couple of small bites, followed by 4 courses, 3 are paired with a wine, and a dessert. Each... More

We visited Williamsburg for the weekend of our 45th wedding anniversary, reserving a dinner here on the night of our anniversary. We had never been to a restaurant like this one before, and it was a wonderful experience. Chefs John and Nick kept everyone laughing, while also teaching us about food freshness and quality. The meal was delicious and it... More

A most enjoyable evening! Loved the food and presentation! We were lucky to get on a waiting list and were rewarded with a reservation. It was a 3 hour experience with a delicious dinner and wines. It was a little expensive but worth the price. Head chef is a great host.

Chef John Gonzales has invented a truly unique dining experience. World class dishes of high-quality, fresh local/seasonal ingredients prepared before your eyes by the Chef and his assistant, served to an intimate theater-style audience (who get to eat) the dinner perfectly paired with inexpensive but excellent wines. The chef not only instructs on preparation as he is making your dinner,... More

We have been fortunate to have visited A Chef's Kitchen several times in the past three years and we have never been disappointed, in fact we always leave thinking they will not be able to improve the next time and they always do! Regardless of the menu, the food is always superb, the presentation and instruction is very enjoyable and... More

A Chef's Kitchen blends two hours of entertainment along with a dining experience. One reviewer noted it is like being a guest on a Food Channel taping, and I agree. The only difference is, as a guest, the patron also consumes each of the delicious dishes paired with a good, but inexpensive glass of wine. The food is fresh, and... More

I came with my future mother-in-law and we didn't know what to expect. (You must make reservations in advance and days fill up quickly. If you visit their website they have the months menu, and you'll see why this is a great experience!) The food was fabulous, I'm still talking about the scallop and lobster cake! Each course is paired... More

You might feel like you're a guest on a Food Channel taping in this stadium style seating arrangement. We arrived promptly at 6:30 pm, were welcomed with a glass of champagne and some finger food. Place cards indicated where we were to sit and then for 2 1/2 hours we were entertained by two talented chefs and fed some of... More
