Diner Reviews
  • "Heard so much about this restaurant that I was excited to try it. The reservation process is a nightmare. Kitchen acts like its doing you a favor to give you a reservation which are at 2 times only. We got there at 6:30 and only 2 other tables were filled. As two women we were put at the smallest table. Service was ok. Food was good. Prices ridiculously expensive. I would not return as it was not worth all the hype."

  • "The food was fantastic. The restaurant is very attractive, albeit quite small. The noise level was energetic, but not so loud that you could not carry on a conversation. It is a bit pricey, but if you like new, trendy places, it is a good choice."

  • "The Kitchen has been open less than a year, but it already is an institution. The menu is interesting, the wine list is a well curated mix of expensive and interesting less expensive bottles, and even the music is well chosen. Perhaps best of all is the welcoming nature of the restaurant - not always the case where a restaurant has plenty of business - and the very friendly and competent waitstaff. We also have hosted a party in the Kitchen's small party room (capacity 10 to 12) that was greatly enjoyed by everyone. My one quibble would be that while there are specials, a few of the menu items could rotate more frequently. We will be back often."

  • "We have eaten here at least once a month since it opened and can't say enough good things about it. Chef Matthews food is the best we have ever eaten and his fantastic wife Aliza makes running the front of the house look easy with her big smile and wonderful way with people. The servers are all charming and good at their jobs. His crabcake appetizer, his carmelized butternut squash, his fettuccine, his halibut...omg, his coconut cake. There are lots fancier restaurants but no one can touch his food or the sincerity of the people who run this restaurant. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We couldn't wait to dine at this neighborhood gem!! And we weren't disappointed!!! The ambience is that of a New York SoHo quaint Restaurant and the food is absolutely amazing!!!! And of course the serve was equally great!! We will be returning to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary at this special place. The husband and wife team have done an Awesome job bringing and maintaining this hot spot in West Palm Beach!!"

  • "First time at kitchen. Appetizers were delightful. One member of our party got the "simply grilled" snapper, which tasted like charcoal. His entree was quickly replaced, but we were surprised that this was the dish that was not well executed. Steak did carry a bit of a char flavor, but because it was thicker than the fish had more flavor. Wish we could have tried dessert because we were told they were all home made. Loved that the chef and owner hang out in the dining room with the customers and visit every table. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Our 2nd time at Kitchen and it was rewarding. The food is fresh and innovative. I particularly liked the Asparagus Prosciutto, Chevre, Poached Egg appetizer. The Chicken Schnitzel is a must and the simply grilled fish is hard to beat. The service is friendly and attentive. We will be back. "

  • "Wonderful meal- one of the best menus in the area and excellently prepared. The only negative- it's a bit too small. You guys need a bigger space!"

  • "Great food, intimate (small) dining room. No bar, wine only. No substitutions limits an already limited menu. Food was excellent. Service very professional. I still love this place and would return a 3rd time."

  • "We ate at Kitchen in early May, off season in Palm Beach, and it was still packed. The food was superb. I loved the Chicken Schnitzel with a poached egg, arugula, and mushroom topping. My wife enjoyed a perfect piece of simply grilled swordfish. We shared a sophisticated burrata and tomato appetizer. Our friend enjoyed the spaghetti with clams. The wine list is smart but a little challenging on the lower price end if you don't like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc or Malbec. The chef, his wife who hosts, and the staff are friendly and efficient I highly recommend Kitchen and intend to return (if I can get in)."

  • "It has been a long time since we have enjoyed a restaurant and a meal like we did the other night. The food, service and staff were A+. There are sittings at 6:30-8 and 8-9:30. We ate at 6:30. We were not rushed yet our food came out at the perfect time. It was fresh, beautiful on the plate and yummy!"

  • "This is one of West Palm Beaches new hot spots. If you want to go you need to make a reservation well in advance. All the hype is true. The place is small and quaint, well decorated and romantic. The service is outstanding. Our waitress from Seattle was very knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, and not intrusive at all. She guided us through our visit, helped navigate us through the menu, and made our overall experience all the better. The food is amazing! Crabcakes conceivably the best we've ever had (hailing from Rhode Island that says a lot!). Salmon Carpaccio was fresh, light, and flavorful. Chicken Schnitzel was innovative and generous, reminding me of my time in Austria. The Coconut Creme cake was perfection too! Recommend!!"

  • "the stripped bass was cooked to perfection. I found it a bit too salty. The vegetables were tasty, but I found that the seasoning need some tempering. the bread pudding was the star of the meal. Don't miss it.Previous desserts were also outstanding. A neighborhood gem"

  • "On a Monday nite this restaurant was buzzing. The hostess, and wife of chef, couldn't have been nicer. Sat us outside at a lovely table (you're facing a parking lot but who cares!). Crabcake appetizers outstanding, chicken for my main was great along with incredible Brussels sprouts. Dessert to die for-we all shared the chocolate cake. Even the chef came out at the end of the meal to introduce himself and chat. Don't miss this special rest!! Plan to return again-for sure."

  • "We went to Kitchen for my sister's birthday. Everything was wonderful from the food to the service to the atmosphere. It's dim and romantic but the energy level makes it lively. The Seafood Risotto special was amazing and the Burger was delicious. The Strawberry Shortcake was a must have! All good things to say about Kitchen. On a helpful note: There isn't a bar so show up close to your reservation time. And yes - you need a reservation! I definitely prefer the indoor seating."

From the time you walk through the door and see the dishes coming out of the kitchen, the friendly professional service you will be thinking of a way to come back real soon. My best suggestion is TRY IT, YOU WILL LOVE IT."

The burrata and heirloom tomatoes were perfection and the salmon carpaccio is one, that dreams are made of. I wanted to try everything on the menu The service was quick and professional, without being rushed. I would love to dine there often but alas reservations are though to get. Great experience."

  • "my wife and I eat fish all over the world...and love it. Her 'charred' snapper came out of the kitchen way over cooked and tough as shoe leather. That's no way to treat a delicate fish. The chef expalined that 'he was taught to cook fish that way'. Good for him, but i have a hard time believing no one has ever complained, according to him. We went with great expectations, given reviews and the chef's reputation. We were sadly disappointed. My steak was just OK, having had better in other Palm Beach restaurants. If you want good fish, go to PB Catch in Palm Beach...miss the Vagobondi! The final insult was that they would not take the fish off the bill, even though my wife ate just two bites... Hopefully, they will get better..."
