This was our first visit to A Chefs Kitchen and we will return. The idea of cooking in front of you and then you get to eat the dinner is a fantastic restaurant concept. It was like being on a Food Network show. The seating...More

You will need to make reservations 6 months in advance. Two years in a row, I tried to make reservations 3 months in advance, and only lucked out this year because someone cancelled. So worth it. John and Nick are funny, personable, and wonderful teachers....More

A Chef's Kitchen was recommended by friends who had eaten here earlier this year. Excellent food and just an amazing overall experience. Very glad we were on the wait list and were able to go! Well worth the price!

The experience was wonderful from start to finish. Begins with champagne, appetizers and wonderful piano music. Progresses to delicious food, wine pairings and instruction on cooking all the dishes. Delicious and fun!

Before coming to Williamsburg you need to go to the web-site. look at the menu ahead of time and make reservations for this fine establishment. You will dine for a couple of hours and it is a bit pricey but well worth the money.

This is an evening of fun with good food and informative to boot!. Some complain that it is too expensive. Try any of the really good places in the Peninsula with wine and you will pay the same for an evening out. John and his...More
