  • Not worth the price tag

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    Three of us went and one of us enjoyed their meal. The first thing I ordered they were out of. The second thing I ordered our server said they were out of as well. The hostess/owner came and asked if everything was ok and I explained that now my second choice they were out of too. She came to our table and exclaimed they were not out of it. I preceded to ask our server if the pasta was made in house and she had to go check (which means "no" or she would have known). I ended up ordering a filet which I almost never order out. It was very mediocre. My daughter ordered a burger (which the server suggested) and again very mediocre. I felt most of the choices were not very creative. Price tag was $250 for three, waste of money!

    We happened to go early and there was one other table there having dinner. It was quite small of a place, so you need to be prepared for that. Our service was really good, everyone was very nice and checked on us perfectly. My husbands fish was undercooked, well one piece was and the other 2 were perfect. Big no no for them is no valet…there are only 8 parking places out front we saw numerous people drive through and have to go find a place on the street somewhere. For the prices there we felt a valet might be in order, however the place is small not a lot of tables so maybe not justified a valet???

    Kitchen is, by far, the best total "restaurant experience " in the area. From the time you are warmly greeted through the excellent dessert, everything is top notch! The food is the highlight though. Relatively simple dishes are creative and impeccabley prepared!! Our favorite place to have a great meal and comfortably relax!

  • Just my husband was disppointed...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    Our first visit & came with good friends of ours. My husband ordered a pork chop (which was extremely thick), which was fine but had to sent it back, due to raw in the center. Waitress was very gracious and immediately brought it back. Upon its return, still was not cooked through. The chef and also his wife both came out to apologize...our fish specials were superb and the sides fabulous. Even though they did not charge for my husband's meal, he was needless to say, hungry when we left. We live, and my husband's business is in Palm Beach and waited till season was over because you were totally booked (excellent for you !!).... so for him it was just a bad first impression.

    The Ahi tuna with mango and avocado, the crab & shrimp cake, and the eggplant-portobello "lasagna" were excellent. Kitchen has a nice atmosphere. Other reviewers complained that the tables were very close together, but we found it to be fine. The table spacing is better than what one would find in a bigger city, like New York or Paris, for a restaurant of this type.

    We went based on the positive reviews here and on other sites - thinking this place would be similar to The Grove in Delray Beach, which we love. We were quite disappointed. The service was wonderful but unfortunately that could not make up for the food or the ambiance. Tables are spaced very closely together which makes for an uncomfortably loud, crowded environment. We had the burrata and the eggplant lasagna. The eggplant was tasty. The burrata was hiding under and absurd amount of arugula. Second course was chicken schnitzel and seared duck breast. The chicken was tasty, but also covered with a ridiculous amount of arugula, radishes and mushrooms. The duck was awful. Rare to the point of being gelatinous, skin not crisp and too fatty.

    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.

    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!

    Dined on 5/2/2014
    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).

    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!!
