Open late and very worth the 15 minute wait to get a table. It's a pretty small place but has a great selection of wines. The staff was so friendly and attentive (all of them, not just our designated server). Great restaurant specializing in comfort food. My friend had the pork chops and I ordered the spicy fried chicken with... More

My wife and I had lunch at The Kitchen today. I had the Pulled Pork and she had the Chicken. They were both fantastic. I highly recommend and ask for Enrique our waiter.

I had a business lunch here and was very disappointed with the service and the food. My client and I spent as much time wondering where our waiter and the food was as we did business. Not Good

The Kitchen is near The Fountain Theatre, which makes it a good choice for a meal before or after a performance. Small, with brick walls and high ceilings, the noise can get really out of control if there are LOUD people, which there were when we were there. If LOUD bothers you, be aware that this small space doesn't have... More

I love to come here for brunch on weekends as well as lunch and dinner during the week. The food is very fresh, well cooked, and delicious. The service is even better than the food. The staff is so friendly and attentive. Check it out!

It's comfort food done right! Nothing fancy, no frills, but tasty dishes made with fresh ingredients.

There are a few upsides here; the fried chicken, mac & cheese and meatloaf. for dessert the strawberry shortcake is rich, savory and not too sweet. Downside the staff can be a bit underwhelming in service and charm. Not that they are not nice but like most of the area too busy being hip to be truly genuine. Overall decent... More

A small place where people come to have a quick bite while browsing the internet or to have a nice chat with friends. Very good chicken soup with at least one whole chicken breast, ots and lots of vegetables, noodles.
