Went to The Kitchen while spending a weekend at Universal Studios. Had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was good. Menu was eclectic. There were two magicians going from table to table offering entertainment. Fun!

A little bit pricey but the breakfast buffet was amazing and delicious. Anything you can think of including made-to-order omelets and waffles.

The prices are a bit high, but the food quality and service are amazing! Plus the live music at certain times is a plus...relaxing environment :)
