We came to this hotel specifically for the Restraunt. Our waitress was amazing...funny, professional, attentive and since it was my daughters birthday she had a magician who was working his way around the room stop by our table for my daughter. She also let us know that the birthday girl was entitled to free dessert. The food was delicious,burgers, steaks salads menu. It was a wonderful dinner!

Daughter took me to Sunday brunch for my birthday on 7/7/19. Professional review said music was nice but soft enough to carry on a conversation. This was true when musician was on break and regular music played over the sound system but musician had his speakers up way too loud. Next time we will ask for a seat as far away from musician as possible.

For the price we paid the food was very average. We expected there to be a vibe, just as there is in the hotel. There was absolutely none.
Our server and the service was fantastic so this is no reflection on that at all.
For the money, you are better off going to some of the nicer restaurants in the other hotels or CityWalk for the atmosphere.

Casual, walk-in dining feel with excellent food. The cornbread and pretzel appetizer was a great meal starter, and the filet mignon was the best my son has had.
Service was quick, helpful, and friendly. Loved the upbeat rock music and entertainment decor throughout.

7th year in a row we've gone to The Kitchen for Mother's Day brunch and each year gets better and better. There is so much food to choose from and it's all incredible. The addition of live music took this dining experience to a new level! Coming back sooner than next Mother's Day!

Had a great brunch variety. Only downfall is had to do a veggie omelet because there are no other options besides pork. Would have been nice to have some turkey sausage or something along those lines to add to my omelette. Chef was able to make my eggs benedict with spinach instead of ham which was delicious.

Mother's Day and we were a party of 6 and put way in the back where it was dark and not friendly to converse with family.

We were also celebrating our son's 18th birthday and the high school graduation of he and his girlfriend.

I felt that it was VERY OVERPRICED for what was served, and I saw it posted elsewhere that it was $39.99 per person, but when we got there it was $55 per person....I wish I had brought the price mark difference. The last time we were there for Mother's Day it was better food, the mom's received a carnation and it was reasonable.

We were not able to get the Universal Studios employee discount and we paid over $400 for 6 people.

I do not believe we will be doing this again. Very disappointed.

Thank you so much to the chiefs for catering to our tree nut allergy. They even made fresh donuts for our son to ensure no cross contamination. As a mother with a child with allergies, I really appreciate it. Wonderful service! Amazing food!

The ambiance was great as always, was not impress with the selection nor the quality, I was hoping that for Eastern brunch it was going to be a bit more special, needs major improvement on the fruits, cheese and pastries selection. They also need to incorporate items like Nova salmon. The waiter was non existent.
