Bar is right on the sidewalk, so most people bring dogs. If you like dogs - Heaven, if you don't like dogs-go over one block. Excellent burger. Neat place.

I went with a friend, we started with the volcano roll and then had the salmon and sirloin dishes. All three were excellent and we had good service, too.

The atmosphere sitting outside in one of the greatest locations around just sets the visit off to a great start. We were there in January and the chef went out of his way to great the customers and find out what they like and make suggestions off of the menu. The food was fantastic! The Chef knows how to run...

We went not expecting much but we were very pleasantly surprised. We had two excellent sushi rolls and the seared salmon on crispy rice was excellent. The service was good and the location was great.

I am not sure how this restaurant stays open. The service was horrible the food was tasteless the restaurant itself was dirty. It obvious by the comments from the staff that things aren't going good for this restaurant and that's a shame good location. Several tables were complaining about the same things as well. Maybe it will close soon and... More

As part of an evening out, we went to The Kitchen. We ordered a few sushi rolls, and they were really fresh and delicious. Our waitress was friendly and checked on us a ton. This, however was the least energized establishment that we went to all night. The restaurant is right around the corner from Jannus Live, a concert venue.... More

Me and friends went to the downtown St Pete Saturday afternoon festivities where there are many indoor and outdoor Bars open and many people patronizing them. One of the places we stopped and had a couple drinks and an appetizer was The Kitchen. Its a cool outdoor venue with several large black fouton-type couches with tables and hookah smoking Vases...

We went before seeing some music at Jannus Live. Very convenient and perfect for what we needed. It doesn't appear to be a place that I would do dinner or anything more than drinks though. Which is fine.

The food was excellant, but the hot, hot day was not good for the Kitchen. They need ceiling fans, or some sort of circulating fans. I was sweating while I ate their great food. Not comfortable.
