This restaurant came highly recommended to us by our friends in the food industry and friends who are just foodies in general. It did not disappoint. Everything on the menu is farm to table. We began with their house made charcuterie and homemade bread. All came with wonderful accompaniments. Their Kitchen tomato soup is divine. Entrees were all good too. Their beer selection is broader than any I have ever seen. The staff was extremely knowledgable and attentive. Try to get a table on the patio if you are a table of three or less. The people watching is fabulous.

I recently ate dinner at the Kitchen with three friends. We were able to get a reservation same day (made around 3pm) for dinner at 7:30 that night.
We started our meal with delicious cocktails and wine. The server was helpful describing the drinks and wine with great knowledge, and we were all happy with our choices.
For dinner we had the price fixe family style meal. One of our group could not eat a part of the meal due to food allergy and they were able to add extra hummus and crostini to supplement her aspect of the meal. Otherwise the price fixe is not able to be changed. Appetizer of olives, crostini with pea tapanade, and beet salad were fantastic! The meal- mussels with white sauce (with lots of crostini for dipping juice!), crab pasta, and Colorado lamb was superb! We had adequate portion size for our group, none to spare, but we couldn't have eaten another bite! The dessert, strawberries with cream were delicious and just right after our large meal. I had wine with dinner that was a portuguese red and it was perfect.
It was a great night out with friends!

I had lunch here and the price is VERY reasonable. The offer a lunch menu for $12 which includes a smal salad and pasta, or pizza, or pannini. The portions a big enough to satisfy your hunger. The only issue I had with the place was that they charged me $2.00 for a small bread (french roll like). The staff eas friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was great.

Had a great dinner with family at the Kitchen. The steak and roasted lamb were great and the home made pasta was very creamy and delicious. Loved the cheese balls and the octopus appetizers. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The hostess was also friendly. Too often they tend to be aloof and uninterested in their guests. Not the case in the Kitchen. We felt like valued friends. We will be back.

Only criticism is one I have for many restaurants today, the staff in general needs to watch for tables that need bussed. Leaving empty dishes on the table too long is aggravating and needs management attention.
