Our second time here, and once again, we were not disappointed. The Chef and his staff were amazing. They kept the energy pumping and were also very accommodating. The food. Wow! The food was amazing as well. From the outset, nothing but great dishes being served. What a great experience. We will definitely be back.

We had such a good time at The Kitchen! The food was amazing and the ambiance even better. If you are in the mood to ‘treat yo self’ then this is the right place.

Amazing! It’s a foodie event that everyone should experience at least once.

I was very impressed by the friendliness of the staff and how much they try to make you feel at home.
It was so much fun and the food was excellent.
My date got sick, so I had to go alone. They did everything to make me feel comfortable and had a meal packed for me to take to my sick date after the dinner.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. I enjoyed the experience and the food.
I intend to come back and take my son here on my birthday.
This is the first time I met the chef, cook, bar tender, waiters and waitresses. They paid attention to all the details and your needs. Awesome!!!

Overall we had a great time, but I also feel like we have a great time wherever we go. I think that the overall experience is something that you can't get anywhere else! The staff was absolutely exceptional! The food was really good. I feel that the prices were way to high for the overall experience but I get why they have to be so high.

We have been to the kitchen a few times and as always it was spectacular. A truly great dinning experience. Typically I would give them 5 stars for service but this last time our Sommelier forgot one of our party's wine selection two times and had to be reminded twice. Value gets 4 stars only because cost for what you get is subjective. It is not some where to go if you don't want to spend much money but if you want great food and experience and don't mind spending a good chunk.this is the place to go.

We came here for NYE and it was not what we were expecting....WE HAD SO MUCH FUN! We thought we were just going to come here and eat good for 4 hours. Nope. It was a 4 hour party! The food was great, the staff was amazing, and the experience is well worth it.

Delicious, fun, and festive! The shrimp course, the oysters, and the champagne were all outstanding. Definitely a special occasion treat. Oh! The house Manhattan was maybe the best cocktail we’ve ever had—e.v.e.r.
