    Restaurant is small and no reservations were avail until 8:30 pm. We walked in at 7:00 pm and were able to sit at the front counter in front of the kitchen where all meals are prepared. Turned out to be best seats in the house. We watched the owner/chef, sous chef, and manager work as a team to prepare every dish for the entire restaurant. We came because the food is highly rated and we were not disappointed. We anticipated slow service based on reviews so we enjoyed a leisurely paced meal. Water and drinks arrived promptly and we enjoyed the cooking entertainment as we waited for our food. Staff could not have been friendlier!

    They were terribly understaffed. How wait staff and management handled it was a huge disappointment. Our waitress wouldn’t communicate with us. When we forced her to, she didn’t apologize or empathize. She was more interested in how it’s affecting her. Management came around after we were there for 2 hours and there was a lack of knowledge on how to save the night. She should have offered a free cocktail and been sincere in her apology. But we received neither. Since there was no meal in sight and no estimate on delivery time, we decided to leave. Very disappointing.

    I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was excellent in ALL regards. The food was exceptional, the ambiance was romantic and cozy and the service was excellent. I was afraid that the piano would be too loud for conversation, but it wasn't. The pianist was fantastic and the volume was perfect.

    The wait for the food was extremely long. The waitress didn’t give us an update on the food. The piano player was great. The food itself wasn’t very good. The best thing was the shrimp appetizer, not the steak.

    The restaurant itself was very nice. Love the kitchen at the entrance . We were stated. The band was ok-very loud. Took a few minutes for anyone to great us. Eventually drink orders were taken. We decided to order our lunches. My son ordered shrimp and grits, my daughter ordered a chicken pasta, my husband ordered barbecue shrimp pasta, and I ordered a shrimp Caesar salad. The orders took a little while but that wasn’t a problem. We were not in a rush. Our waitress told us several times your food will be here soon. .Finally everyone’s meals arrived except mine. My daughters chicken pasta was OK. the shrimp and grits was OK. My husband’s barbecue shrimp didn’t taste like barbecue at all. about 20 minutes later, my salad arrived with an apology for a mixup in the kitchen. I really wanted to like this restaurant, but I’m afraid we probably will not go back.

    The summer salad was deliciously refreshing, the shrimp and capers in a lemon based cream sauce was so remarkable that words just can’t describe how my tastebuds danced… so we danced to the perfect brunch music in the bar (keyboards and guitar)

    Needs improvement, food was good was very very slow. We waited 1 hour 15 min to get salad and entree. When we asked if we could get our salad they told us know it all had to come out at same time. Took 45 min to get appetizer (devil eggs). Like I said food was good but service was slow

    The owner was there and did everything he could to make our experience a positive one. I have a ton of respect for the fact that he was there and doing almost all of the cooking. The food was fantastic! I had the shrimp scampi dinner special and it was very flavorful. The feedback I would provide for improvement would be to better train the servers. Our server didn’t take a drink order, didn’t mention the specials (I had to ask) never once did a table check and never offered dessert. Awful. It was the worst service I’ve had in a long time and it was surprising given how beautiful the restaurant is, and the commitment to quality that is otherwise so obvious.

    We had brunch on September 4th at The Kitchen. Our waitress told us that they were down one chef and apologized. We were very patient but did not get our entree for over 2 hours! Appetizers did eventually arrive which kept us placated. We only ordered eggs, bacon, grits etc. The chef came out to one table to apologize and offered them complementary dessert...what about all the other patrons waiting for two hours?!! We probably would have just finished our meal and left without saying anything but on the way out, the chef asked how we enjoyed our meal? Wrong question! He should have thanked us for our patience, apologized and then asked about our meal. I will never go back. Food wasn't worth the wait.

    Enjoyed the piano player and the food was delicious! A little disappointed when we arrived because was told they did not have a table for us (2 people) even though we booked the reservation on Open Table. Said it had something to do with it being booked after 5:00pm. They gave us the option to be seated at the bar but when I inquired about a table that had just been vacated, they cleaned it and sat us there. I also noticed there were two other tables for 2 that were empty the whole time we were there, so not quite sure what the issue was when we arrived. Hmm?

    Never been to Natchez and visited for 1 night. We loved the Kitchen. Lively piano music, a bit loud for dinner conversation though. But all in all great food, service and ambiance. We would go back.
