A month in advance reservation for a Tuesday night in April was made and later confirmed. A birthday dinner celebration was a major disappointment when the restaurant door was locked and a sign in the window displayed, "private party." A call to the restaurant was not returned. A fifteen minute (frustrating) search for parking, coins for a 2.5 hour anticipated... More

We have been fortunate to snag a table at The Kitchen three times in 2014 when we visited the area. Each time I am surprised at the inventiveness and deliciousness of the food. Also the complimentary mini appetizers - tonight ginger and cranberry on brioche, salmon crepe, beet purée with shaved picked carrot - are fun. I love the short... More

Wonderful restaurant. Serves small tastes between each course. Service is great. If you order an appetizer, main dish and dessert, it might be too much to eat. But it is hard to resist.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and Di a search for interesting restaurants online. The Kitchen came up and was described as eclectic, farm to table. We loved it from beginning to end. The service was good. The food was fantastic with lots of quirky surprises. After we placed our order we were told that it would be 30... More

Don't order any appetizers at this downtown Englewood down-home eatery, because the waitstaff will bring you, gratis, 5 different, delicious and imaginative amuse-bouches while you wait for your food. In 3 visits I have not ordered anything but the fried chicken and honey waffles, which is a half bird pan fried with buttermilk gravy on the side and sweet waffles.... More

The food here is really good, service is great, and it honestly wasn't as pricey as I was expecting (but perhaps that's because we didn't drink any alcohol). But for my husband and myself, it was $108 before tip and we each got an app, entree, and dessert for ourselves. We were stuffed, but the food was very well-prepared and... More

Excellent dinner. Food was exceptional and the little tastes of food that came out were excellent. There were so many tastes that you really don't need to order an appetizer. We will go back again.

So me and my guy go here at least monthly with friends, family or on our own. We are shocked by the negative reviews because of the following: 1. Steve the owner is great and always makes sure we have a great table ; 2. The wait staff are knowledgeable, inviting and always make you feel like you are eating... More

Had a reservation here and had to cancel last minute due to icy road conditions. I just honestly didn't feel comfortable driving on icy roads while being pregnant.

The original Kitchen up the street was great, terrific hors douvers, excellent and sharable entrees and I think better pricing. We recently had dinner at the newer location and this is what we found: 1. Our kid waiter was dressed as if he worked in a diner and told us he is "doing a fish tonight.. he was waiting on... More
