The Kitchen Restaurant
Upon arrival, we welcome guests to stroll through our open kitchens, chat with the chefs, visit our wine cellar, order libations and relax on the patio. For intermission, guests are invited to sample bites at the chefs’ stations, including sushi, house-made charcuterie, artisan cheeses, freshly shucked oysters and more. As dinner service concludes, we invite guests to enjoy dessert, which is served alongside our fresh herb tea service and French press single-origin coffees.
Bend over backwards for everyone’s satisfaction. Nothing like it!
This was an amazing experience! If you’re into food this is one of the best things you could possibly do! You get amazing food for 4 hours non stop & can ask for whatever you want. It was an unbelievable experience from start to finish.

So accommodating. Just a wonderful
This was a bucket list experience for our anniversary. We love to cook and have traveled widely experiencing many great meals over the years. What sets the Kitchen apart from many fine dining restaurants in my opinion is the informality and entertainment component. First the cooking is done in front of you and you can sit at the horseshoe that surrounds the grill and watch Chef Kelly McCown. Kelly is entertaining and puts people at ease. They encourage questions and even let you step into the kitchen and watch them cook. The food is simply amazing! Five courses and each was perfection. Before the 1st course, we were encouraged to stroll the garden or wonder back to the main kitchen where an assortment of sushi and small plates were set out for sampling along with oysters. Our first course was a scallop on a bed of Okinawan sweet potato that was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. Next came a bouillabaisse that was my favorite of the evening with tomato agnolotti stuffed with sea beans and sitting in an incredible seafood broth. Before the next course, we had a break to wonder the kitchen and once again sample all kinds of small bites. The next two courses were quail with wild blackberries and a fennel soubise followed by a corn crepe with roasted beef and summer truffle. I could have made a meal of corn crepes alone they were so delicious. The last act, by which time I was loosening my pants, was dessert. Not just dessert, basically three rounds of dessert starting with hot out of the oven chocolate chip cookies slathered with cream. Yummy! Next up, a raspberry tart with violet custard and blueberry sauce, followed by a plate of five sweet bites, including a macaroon and a lovely chocolate caramel candy. We both agreed not only was this the best meal we have ever had; but the experience was fun, relaxing and filled with laughter listening to Chef McCown’s running commentary. Definitely dinner as a performance art!
Food was utterly delicious and excellent service.
There was more food than what was on the menu. Fresh oysters - love it.
Michelin 🌟 was long earned and overdue!
The Kitchen was one of the top dining experiences I have experienced thus far in my life! Not only was the food incredible but the environment was fun, exciting, and very open & welcoming. I’ve never had a dining experience where the head chef literally tells his guests to make themselves at home by exploring his kitchen, coming up to learn how to cook/help cook, and even offer to modify any food made to make our experience the best. The Chef was hilarious, engaging, and really knows how to cook for quality. Come with literally an empty stomach because you will leave stuffed!!! I can’t recommend this experience enough.
Wonderful experience! Customer service was outstanding and we had a lovely evening with The Kitchen and their staff.
Coming to the Kitchen was a great experience. It's very interactive an everyone makes you feel so comfortable while being there. I loved being able to walk around BOH and how they will do anything to make you happy.
We were here for a date/birthday night. You get 5 prefixed courses and sampler of lots of different food during “intermission”. Oh yeah there’s unlimited raw oysters too during intermission. You also get the option of having seconds or thirds of the course you really like. It’s completely laid back and transparent. You get to see how the food is made and get to walk around the back as well. They also make chocolate chip cookies for the hell of it. We were starting to hurt cause we ate so much which means they did their job. I had to stand up to eat my last course.
You won’t regret it. You’re there at least 4hours. Bon appetit
This place was the best date night we’ve had in over 17 years. The whole experience of interaction with staff was inviting and humble. The beer selection of Russian River Brewery was a great surprise for me and my husband who are local beer lovers. The food was endless! I mean I was so full I was hoping there was no more delicious food to eat but it keep sneaking up on us. And you had to eat because it was nothing like you’ve ever tasted before. We spent our night enjoying the scenery of the whole place, chatting to others and engaging with the whole Kitchen staff. It is pricey but definitely worth the money!
This restaurant should be on everyone’s bucket list! So fun watching the chefs cook and plate the food in front of you. The most beautiful and delicious food you’ve ever seen. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable on the menu and the wines.
Overall the experience was AMAZING! I highly recommend going. There were a few things I would change. The $30 cocktail menu was definitely not worth it. It was not worth the $$. If they're going to charge $30 it better be spectacular.
The wine pairings also came to the table before the course so we were almost done with the wine by the time the food came.
Overall, was amazing - just a few tweaks.
Amazing experience! Food was delicious and chef was hilarious. Servers were incredibly kind and attentive.
The menu wasn’t as great as it was our first time. I think Chef Mccown allowed his sous chef to take charge this time and he created a lot of what he knows... latin american based foods like ceviche, tamales, etc. i would have enjoyed more of Chef Mccown’s creations. Nonetheless we had a blast for my wife’s birthday and our 9 yr anniversary! We loved the environment! We loved the show and entertainment put on by the staff! Would definitely come again... hopefully there will be my favorite seafood raviolo!! Thanks everyone!
It’s not your everyday eat out restaurant, but the experience was fantastic! From start to finish they were very organized, friendly, & very welcoming. They provided fun & an all out good time. The plates may look small, but you’re eating throughout the entire night!
I would definitely recommend this restaurant & we plan on going back again.
Amazing food. But not cheap. Awesome place for a date or any event
An outstanding experience with amazing food, service and ambiance. Would highly recommend everyone to enjoy this experience.
First time visitors to an amazing restaurant. The Executive Chef, Kelly, makes the evening and experience very memorable. We enjoyed the Wine Pairing with our meals, they have a Regular Pairing and a Reserve Pairing and we each had one. The appetizers were broad and tasty, and the main courses were creative and enjoyable. Come very hungry because they feed you appetizers and there is an intermission for even more snacks. And you have to have room for dessert! At the intermission, we tried a select Spanish Cava that was worth it. We plan to return once we save up some more dough.
The most interesting and wonderful food experience in Sacramento area. You and your party become apart of the entire experience in ways unique to this dining establishment. Think; "all you can eat super fancy food, with unbridled access to just about anything in the kitchen." Truly an amazing experience for my fiance and I.
