“Best in Sacramento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a little pricey, but is worth every cent. The food was picked from the garden each day, meat is outstanding, fish plucked from the ocean or river that day. A true gourmet experience with everything prepared in front of your eyes with talented chef's. Randall is still outstanding after many years in the business. Save this for a very special event in your life. You will always remember it!!!

“Make a Wonderful Memory!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The absolute best food we have ever had anywhere. We took our family of 6 for a celebration dinner. The presentation was intriguing to us all and the food was exceptional. Age range from 49 to 12 years. I am not adventurous when it comes to food but I thought I will try everything put before me. I could not believe the flavors of the different courses, each were fantastic. You can get seconds or more of any of the courses. The service was excellent as well. Our family still talks about "The Kitchen" and the wonderful time we all shared together and memories we will carry with us. If you want a night to always remember (proposal, anniversary, birthday etc.) make reservations for this place and you won't be disappointed. You may want to make a reservation a month in advance for a party of 6 or more. It is not cheap but, the quality and quantity of food with the show is hard to be disappointed in the cost you get your monies worth and then some.

The food was very good, service was even better. It would want to be for the price! It was a good experience, overall.

“Best restaurant in town; and you pay for it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Kitchen is an exceptional very high end restaurant, which is Prix Fixe and very expensive. Expect about a four hour experience, and 5 courses. The Kitchen offers a single menu every month, although they will make you anything you want if you ask. Expect to pay around $500 or more per couple if you choose to pair your course with the wine they recommend.

“Pricey But Worth It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

You dine here for the experience as much as the food. Don't expect it to be inexpensive, especially if you want to purchase wine(s) with your meal. However, the food is fantastic and the interactive atmosphere is great. Get up and do some prep if you feel the urge, or just relax at the table as they bring you course after course of tremendous food. Make this a "special occasion" destination!
