Chef Ramsay is in for a challenge when he heads to Everett, WA, to visit the Prohibition Grille. Professional belly dancer-turned-restaurant owner Rishi is struggling to keep her business afloat and is in desperate need of help. As a result of her lack of prior restaurant experience, Rishi leaves control of the kitchen in the hands of her head chef, who is constantly preoccupied and gives little focus to the restaurant. Constant complaints from customers have Rishi worried, but will she take Chef Ramsay’s advice?

    Since CBS doesn’t want us to see "Kid Nation" in advance, I guess I’ll just have to declare Kitchen Nightmares the best new reality show of the fall.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Doug Elfman

    As usual, he's demanding, brutal and fearless. He repeatedly insults egotistical managers and chefs and yells, "Just smell that for me!" And they do.

    Mary Poppins it ain't--which is fine because the snooty broad couldn't begin to handle this. [21 Sep 2007, p.74]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Phil Gallo

    Kitchen Nightmares is shockingly good storytelling and hilarious. This may be the most compelling show of the new season

    Variety Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    He is just as blustery and foul-mouthed here as he is on "Hell's Kitchen." But he is also oddly endearing, mainly because he genuinely seems invested in the fate of each restaurant.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    This show is more entertaining than most unscripted series, but that praise doesn't raise the heat high enough.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    It is loud and manipulative and ugly to behold, but it isn't dull.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ginia Bellafante

    The subtext of Kitchen Nightmares is that ordinary middle-class business owners need brash and brilliant moguls to save them from a sad reliance on their own mediocrity. It is an ugly message that Mr. Ramsay makes undeniably hypnotic.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ray Richmond

    Kitchen Nightmares pushes all of the proper emotional buttons to draw we viewers in. But we're never for a moment able to suspend the notion that we, the audience, are being played.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    If you like watching culinary train wrecks, this is your show.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Leave it to Fox to take something the Brits did pretty well and muck it up.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    The show's boorishness is exceeded only by its dissimulation; not one frame of this thing--from the diners who seem not to notice that their table is surrounded by camera crews to the melodramatically villainous managers--is remotely believable.
