Reports on The Kitchen, Sacramento (Not the new Chinese place)?

This thread on the new Chinese place in Sacramento:
Left me scratching my head, because it refers to The Kitchen as one of the best places to dine in Sacramento, but I've never heard of it, and seen no reports on CH. Huh? No mention that I caught in Sacto hounds discussion of favorite dining places:
I presume it is upscale, but other upscale places are mentioned...
There is brief mention of it here, but almost nothing about the food:
In looking at the website, I did get that it is a set menu, $125 a person, and my first impression was that bottle prices for wine seemed very reasonable compared to prices by the glass, then I saw a note that all bottle prices were retail..duh..no wonder they seemed reasonable. It would take some of the sting out of the price of dinner, definitely.
Anyway, the menus look very impressive and I'd appreciate hearing more about the food if anyone has been and wants to post a report. Thanks!

The Kitchen is a long established performance kitchen upscale dining experience.
There is a group that owns several Chinese restaurants in Ca, including New Canton on Broadway in Sacto. They own two restaurants, both named The Kitchen, one in Millbrae, and one in Alhambra. They are going to open another Chinese place on Auburn Blvd, allegedly also named The Kitchen. But I don't see how that's possible as there is already another The Kitchen here in Sacto. We'll wait and see.
The Kitchen is one of the best restaurants I've been to (some from my list Le Bec Fin, Alan Wongs, The Herbfarm, Babbo); the food is fabulous, atmosphere is fun, wine list is excellently priced with an outstanding selection and service is spot on. I've been twice and each time was phenomenal; I especially like that you can have seconds or more on any course. I asked for more foie gras stuffed morels.
Yep-we went there for valentine's day last year--it was a great dining experience! Had a lot of stuff that I normally wouldn't try! The Oct menu looks pretty good too!! Its like a 4 hour event--with so much food. They have small portions so that you can try everything, but you can always get seconds (or thirds, or fourths...). They'll also make you whatever you want--My husband asked about their kobe beef that they used in their ravioli, and so they made us some kobe beef carpaccio! Excellent service! Definately a treat!
