Amazing, awesome and delightful experience! We were able to visit due to another cancellation ... we were on the wait list for nearly 4 months & was worth the waiting! This, by far, was our favorite stop on our road trip! Chef John & souls Chef Nick are truly amazing & extremely creative! The dinner was amazing and we bought... More

The menu changes monthly.Five courses with 3 wine pairing for around $85 +tax. The evening lasts 3 hours. The chef... More

My first visit to the Chef's Kitchen was absolutely wonderful - and I hope it won't be my last. We were on the waiting list for 6 weeks and a week before our trip to Williamsburg, we got the best phone call that we were able to get in due to a cancellation. The whole experience was amazing - the... More

We've been to the Chef's Kitchen twice and loved it both times -- learned something new at each visit and wish we could afford to go more often! It's a little pricey, but worth every penny since you get an evening's fun entertainment along with a great meal, not to mention the recipes for what you witnessed being prepared... Make... More

You need to book 60-90 days in advance or get lucky on waiting list. So they must be doing something terrific. They are. Single seating at 6:45, 26 seats in three rows looking at the two Chefs, 4 wines, 5 courses, all recipes at your table...if you cook, are a foodie or just love to eat...this is unique and fabulous...relaxed,...

The accolades for Chef’s Kitchen are well deserved, and I thoroughly enjoyed my evening there. The staff is engaging and extremely efficient. Of course, the food was superb. That said, I think it’s important for potential guests to understand that it’s a set menu and a culinary demonstration. The evening doesn’t really lend itself to dinner conversation. There is a...

OK, if you like watching cooking shows on TV, eating extraordinarily great food, drinking good wine, receiving great cooking tips, and if you enjoy being entertained, this is the place for you. My wife brought me to "A Chef's Kitchen" for my 41st birthday, and I was amazed. I have traveled and eaten all over the world, but this was... More

Fabulous food, prepared as you watch. Fun interactions with Chef John Gonzales. Lovely and affordable wines to accompany the meal and take home. All these plus a TV Studio like set-up make for a great dining experience. Never had a meal that was not unique and timed for the season. Plus Chef John gives you all his recipes to take... More

A Chef's Kitchen is an absolute delight. Seating is in an amphitheater setting limited to approx. 26 seats. The Chef and his assistant treat you to a 4 course dinner prepared in front of you with wine pairings for each course. The meals are consistently excellent and very educational with lots of tips on food preparation and cooking.
