Reviews

Hitfix - Drew McWeeny
The film is loose and genuine and makes great use of place.
76
Film.com - William Goss
If the Favreau-written “Swingers” concerned itself with the pursuit of meaningful romance and the Favreau-directed “Made” tackled the pursuit of a better living, then the slight if continually amusing Chef is clearly his paean to rekindling one’s passions, whether as an artist, a husband or a father.
75
New York Post - Lou Lumenick
He’s great as a celebrity chef who’s forced to re-examine his priorities in this extremely funny and big-hearted comedy that Favreau also wrote.
70
Variety - Joe Leydon
The final destination is entirely predictable — right down to the deus ex machina reappearance of an erstwhile antagonist — but the trip itself is never less than pleasant, and often extremely funny.
60
The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
The easygoing comedy keeps a familiar story going despite minor plot hiccups.
