I first found out about Chef’s Kitchen on IG about a week ago and decided that I wanted my girlfriends and I to check it out. We decided to make our first visit on Juneteenth to show our support for black-owned businesses. Everything was great, from the food, drinks, music playlist, and customer service! We are definitely going to be eating here more often!

Second time dining here. Food was excellent both times. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Salmon and scallops were delicious. Friends had chicken Marsala which they enjoyed. Drinks were good also. We will return

It is nice to see upscale non-chain restaurant for that area. The people they are very warm and welcoming and very attentive. The food was very good and was presented well. The atmosphere was a little sterile and should be nicer for an upscale restaurant. I was somewhat disappointed there was no opportunity to get coffee and so we did not order dessert. We will be back to try it again!

My family enjoyed their meals that consisted of salmon, pasta, and salad. The restaurant had some difficulty cooking the ribeye to my liking.

Service was excellent, like very much the ambiance cause I like quiteness. About the food, I wasn’t that impressed. Like other comments, plates were too small, and pricey for my opinion. Other than that was good.

Food was good but took sooo long to get out and our server barely checked in on our table. The restaurant was empty so I don’t know what her excuse was

We decided to try Chefs Kitchen for a nice birthday dinner. I'll start by saying that the food was fantastic - very little room for improvement there. Our server was new - maybe even first day - and it showed. The service effort was great but the results were not what I expect when paying $40-50/pp for a complete meal. A more seasoned server came and checked on us, which was nice. My only other small complaint was the size of the serving plates. The plating was beautiful but the plates were way too small for the food - there was no room to even maneuver food to cut it into a bite-sized portion.

I'll definitely go back for the food, but with different expectations for the overall experience.

Excellent food. It is fairly dark inside and atmosphere needs improvement considering the price of the food. It is great to have a good non-bar food choice in Lake Wylie. Nice menu of dishes you don't make at home. Would definitely return.

We wanted to try something different than the usual places in the Charlotte area and came across Chef's Kitchen. It DID NOT disappoint! We had a group of six with everyone ordering a different dish. Everyone agreed that their food was excellent - from the Ribeye to several seafood dishes. We will definitely plan a return visit soon!

I really want to like this place. My first time in was pretty good but tonight was not so much. It was over an hour before we got our food. My brother in law got the ribs and green beans and he said it was the worst he ever had. I got the Chicken Marsala and it was good as well as the mashed potatoes. The green beans had zero seasoning on them. They were the saddest looking things.

Not sure we will be back for awhile. I hope they can get it together.

We have eaten here several times and I can’t say enough about the food. My husband wants to try new things, but loves the Salmon New Orleans so much that he won’t get anything new. I’ve tried several dishes and enjoyed them all! The service has gotten better (I know it’s difficult finding help right now), so I commend them for trying to get some help that will continue with them as they grow.

The seafood and side dishes are first rate-- some of the best we have had lately.
Their recent addition to the menu was Sea Bass which we verified was Mediterranean
Bass, not Chilean Bass (which actually is tilefish) prepared to perfection. The bottles of wine are fairly priced even if not a huge selection. Service is attentive, but important to know that every dish is being made to order, so it takes a bit of time to get your food.
Our advice is to settle in with cocktails or a bottle of wine and it will be worth the wait.
This is an undiscovered neighborhood gem!

We were seated right away and serviced very quickly. The food was excellent -although a little pricey. The background music was classic soul music (Soul town- Satellite) which is perfect for me. All the tables are situated a safe distance apart and the waiters wear masks. It was a very pleasant and delightful dining experience!

We dined at Chef's Kitchen for the first time last Saturday evening and it was a very lack luster experience. It started when we entered the restaurant, there were a few people standing around waiting for to go orders and the hostess was not at the desk. When she did show up she ignored us for a solid 10 minutes, when she finally did notice us we were seated promptly. The restaurants ambience leaves a lot to be desired and the hard bench seats were very uncomfortable. The lighting felt like we were in a diner and I was under a spotlight. Upon delivery of the bread basket we both took a piece of bread to which we added butter from one of those awful off brand plastic butter cups with the foil you peel off. We both looked at each other and said the bread doesn't taste like anything, literally nothing. We always share our meals and ordered the beet salad and the shrimp and lobster scampi. The beet salad tasted like it was dressed with olive oil not a champagne vinaigrette as stated and there were 4 miniscule pieces of beets on a $12 salad! The lobster and shrimp scampi dish tasted ok, the seafood was cooked very well, the one saving grace to the dish, it was eatable just not terribly interesting. For the $26 price tag we had higher expectation of flavor. As far as the wine menu they had 2 choices for red wine, cabernet and merlot, we both ordered a glass of the cab and it was barely drinkable. We had high hopes for a restaurant named chefs kitchen and were disappointed to say the least especially with a 4.0 rating on open table. Not sure what we missed but won't take the chance of trying again. Prices are too high, ambience is terrible and food mediocre at best.
