We did a bachelor party for nine guys here last month - it was a great experience and we are still basking over the memories. Several of our guys are very good in the kitchen and they learned new techniques and skills from the Thai cooking class we did with Chef Leo. We got to make and enjoy our meal,... More

With its fixed format menu and dinner-lecture presentation, the Open Kitchen is not a conventional restaurant and is not a good choice for a casual meal. The atmosphere is a bit industrial and a friendly welcoming staff doesn't overcome a cold sensation. But it is a very entertaining and instructional venue for a unique evening. The price is a bit...

Heard good things about Open Kitchen so decided to check it out right before Christmas. On a Sunday night there were only two other people in the whole restaurant. Then the waiter informed us that the dinner service would be closing in January and the restaurant would be turned into just having cooking classes. The food was pretty good, no... More

I found this restaurant based on reviews and was not disappointed. Service was attentive, but not overly intrusive. Each dish was delicious, home-made bread and very nice variety to the wine list. They have moved to "medium" plates (not tapas, but larger) and also had stand alone meals. We all cleaned every plate. I'd eat there again.

We drove by the restaurant and decided to eat here on a whim. My wife had been once before 3 years earlier and said the food was good. She was right. The food was excellent. We had a selection of meats and cheeses and a number of small plates from what the waiter referred to as the "new menu" including... More

When friends suggested we meet for dinner at Open Kitchen, we looked at their web site, which was certainly inviting, and read the TA reviews, mixed. Arriving at 6PM, with a reservation, we were among the few tables there for that evening. The menu looked interesting and we ordered various starters and entrees and wine. My wife found the wine...

There were three of us and we didn't realize it was restaurant week. We were two females and one male. Two of us got the Fixed Price menu while the other female paid $22 for her a la carte Steak dinner. The two of us had the beet salad, very nice. Interesting that the cheese was smeared on the plate... More

We eat at Open Kitchen regularly - the service, food, and wine are stellar. The staff at Open Kitchen are extremely hospitable and very knowledgeable about the food and wines - both of which are taken seriously (but not too seriously) in the restaurant. The menu selections are varied and should please any palate. Open Kitchen is ideal for foodies.... More

Great choices of wine and cheese and appetizers. We had our holiday event there and really enjoyed the wine tasting, appetizers and overall festive ambiance made to measure for our party.

If you like to watch the chefs cook your meal, you'll enjoy Open Kitchen. We saw a crowd at the bar, leaning over to watch the chefs 10 feet away in an open kitchen area. We sat farther back, where we could watch the action on a large-screen monitor. We were impressed at the quality of the ingredients they used.... More
