Critics’ Reviews

[Kayden] takes on a series of ever-more-outrageous personas depending on who is in the room. ''I should get an Oscar for this,' she says at one point. (Perhaps she'll settle for a Tony nomination.)

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

Dinner is more sit-commy in its plotting, without any aspirations other than goofy comedy and sexual leering, but it still provides a healthy bunch of laughs in the process.

Review by Michael Musto from The Village Voice

William Ivey Long delivers with sumptuous costumes: bespoke striped suits, tuxes, a fur coat, French maid outfits, dinner gowns, and, yes, dressing gowns that reek of wealth and high thread counts.

Review by Mark Kennedy from Associated Press

Making the most of her rich opportunities, the gifted Kayden is a sober Plain Jane one minute and a rubber-limbed, Cointreau-soaked vamp the next, joining [Ben Daniels] in a killer tango.

Review by David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter

Ms. Kayden is very funny in her sniffing acceptance of the absurd behavior of her employers.

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times
