This film is about food, of course. But, it's not about food at all, really. It's about people, about love, about perseverance. I've been lucky enough to see this more than once, and every time I have been moved to tears. And I'm sure I will be again. Kudos to the creator, Joseph Levy, and his team!

This film is about so much more than three restaurants. Its about people, family, and the triumph of the human spirit. This is truly one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I'm so glad I can now watch it over and over again!

This documentary follows the amazing stories of 3 restaurants and the people who run them. The three stories are interwoven to make a beautiful movie filled with heart. I loved it and recommend it to anyone.

I really wanted to like this video. It wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't great. The story of Grant Achatz is poignant and heartwarming. While he seems like a great guy, this video did not capture any of the passion that I'm sure he has. Please know that I am absolutely not questioning his passion; I am questioning why the filmmakers didn't capture it.

I watched this film on Netflix and was strangely moved by it. One reviewer asked where the food was but the movie is more than that. Its about how restaurants are more than food...they are at times an extension of the owner or town they are in. One restaurant was about the creativity of the Chef, the second restaurant really conveyed the connection between the community and the business, and the third was about family and achieving the "American Dream" . I teach Culinary Arts and had to purchase this move to show to my students.

Loved it! Very inspirational. Can't wait to go to Iowa to eat at Breitbach's. Grant Achatz is amazing and so talented.

Chronicles the passion and commitment of those who are bitten by the restaurant bug. It can come at a high personal price. The selection of three different approaches to nurturing the public is excellent and the film covers the wide range of challenges, risks and rewards that come with it.

Really gave you a lot of insight into what inspires a person to own and operate a restaurant. The sheer determination displayed by these individuals was inspiring to witness--we all should aspire to having such a passion in our lives.

An amazing documentary about people, about food and most importantly about the passion that fuels their dreams. My wife and I were glued to the screen, no breaks, no extra drinks, just watching. This work captures your interest, holds it, feeds it to an unexpected emotional peak. Just when you think you've seen it all and you're sitting satisfied with the movie, you are taken on a surprise recapitulation that left both of us weeping. This movie touches the heart. You just have to give it a viewing.

I had to see this film because a few years ago I ate at Alinea, Chef Grant Achatz's restaurant. I was served dessert by Grant himself. It was one of the most memorable evenings in my life. Grant is a genius, and has such passion. I like to call him the Michelangelo of cuisine. He is so creative, and his plates are works of art.
After seeing this film, I want to jump on a plane to Chicago, and go there again.
