Wonderful and interesting

This is a great place to eat and learn about food but make your reservation as soon as you can as they are tough to get.

Oh my gosh I can see why it's #1 on trip advisor. My husband and I are vacationing in Williamsburg and I found it on trip advisor before we came. I had to be put on a waiting list and they happened to have an opening. So we got to go. The chef and his assistant we funny and wonderful... More

The best of dining experiences! Whether you are experiencing a couples night out, or a family outing, this is the best dining experience Williamsburg has two offer. Admittedly it is a bit pricey however worth every penny. Not only do you experience a superb meal but you also learn how to cook it. It's a not to miss.

We try to go to A Chef's Kitchen twice a year. When you consider the how good the food is, the inclusion of 4 wines and and the 3 hour entertainment factor, it can't be beaten. We just returned from Santa Fe and went to local cooking school for dinner, The food could not compare and it was much more... More

We made reservations about three months in advanced. They called us several times to confirm. When we arrived they welcomed us. Immediately after paying, they told us our party will be split to two tables. They knew our head count and we could easily fit on one table. The issue was not that we were going to be separated, it... More

Wanda G, Owner at A Chef's Kitchen, responded to this review

Integrity: adherence to moral and ethical principles; the quality of being honest and fair. We create a seating chart every evening to best accommodate all of our guests. Some of the considerations are: number of people in each party (which varies); each table has a different number of seats; accommodating guests with physical disabilities, etc. We have three long tables...

The concept is great and the execution is even better. Watching your food be prepared is nothing new - open kitchens have been around for a while. But being instructed on how the food is prepared while it is being prepared and then leaving with the recipes is totally new. And wonderful! The wines are nice little (under $10/bottle) finds....

My husband and I have been to A Chef's Kitchen several times. The food is always inventive and satisfying. The wines go wonderfully with the meal and they are very generous. My husband has an unusual and severe allergy and they have accommodated him each time, without any issues or complaints. We love the food, but we also love going... More

Great food, excellent cooking tips from the chef. This was a group event, so we were able to wander around and talk before courses.

My man and I went to this venue in March. I have to preface my remarks to say that I was feeling ill and coming down with an awful cold...so I didn't enjoy the experience as much as he did or as I wanted! It is an event: 3 hours starting with Hors d'oevres and 5 wonderful courses accompanied by... More
