The food is prepared well, as the chef explains how they prepare the food. There is opportunity for questions and answers, and this makes it interesting. The wine was very good.

If you ever have the opportunity to experience A Chef's Kitchen, don't pass it up! But make your reservation early, they book up almost 3 months out. Chef and Owner, John, and his Sous Chef, Nick, present the dishes in a knowledgeable and witty manner. The food is scrumptious, such as our cheesy cauliflower chowder and Berkshire pork with pomegranate... More

This isn't just a restaurant - it is much more! One is entertained in an intimate atmosphere where we dine on what we have learned to prepare. We sample the wine chosen with each course and we even get to take home the recipes. Discussions arise spontaneously with the chef and his diners. It is a very pleasant evening. One... More

Incredible presentation and education of how and what to cook! Chef educated us on how to cook every item on the menu and healthier choices in every day cooking. The food was truly an experience with every single course 5 out of 5. Berkshire pork for the final episode was an incredible finale.... We immediately made several reservations for the... More

Reservations must be made well in advance. An intimate restaurant of 25 guests makes you feel like you are having an elegant family dinner. The chef and sous-chef work in front of you while preparing the meal interacting with their guest and answering questions. If you enjoy cooking this is an added bonus. Wine is served with each course. The... More

This experience has been on my bucket list for a while and I was finally able to find a menu I was excited about and get a reservation. Although I probably won't make too many of the items at home, it was nice to receive the recipes. In addition to eating good food, you also learn about the food you... More

I was put on a wait list 4 months ago, 2 days before leaving for our trip to williamsburg we got the call that there was an opening. My husband and I had such a good time. The food was amazing. The chefs made it a fun and entertaining night. They teach as they cook. Highly recommend! !!

My sisters- and mother-in-law and I have been coming to Williamsburg for a Christmas getaway for 25+ years, eating at most of the restaurants in town. So many great meals and many lovely places, but nothing compares to our evening at The Chef's Kitchen! (Fair warning - we made our reservation in the spring.) The evening was like being in... More
