How to make restaurant-quality food at home?

What do good but not great restaurants (2-3 star) do to make their flavors so intense that I don't do in my kitchen? Can I replicate some of those tricks in my kitchen, or is that something that can't be reproduced without mass equipment?

While I can make food that tastes fine from recipe books, it definitely is a few steps below the quality of food served at reasonably decent restaurants. Is the difference simply in the quality of the ingredients? Do their kitchens have machines that allow them to do things I can't? What can I do to move my homemade meals closer to something that tastes professionally made?
