Our inspiration for this restaurant was the Unites States of America past and present.

What is American food? We believe it has become a blend of traditional American dishes and those from around the world. Today, cities nationwide are immersed with regional and ethic foods... Our menu brings together traditional American and global cuisine with our own interpretation and personal touch.

Our decor is a reflection of American industry with iron, concrete, wood, and steal. Pops of leather, bronze and copper colors warm it up along with our modern 60" fireplace.

    Great brunch location in Alexandria with me daughter. I got the Portland avocado toast. My daughter ordered the French toast. It was really sweet, but it was really good. It should have ordered coffee.

    I first found out about this restaurant from one of its sister locations, TJ Stone’s in Old Town Alexandria. This is a great place for casual dining, with a wide variety on the menu. One note, however, there isn’t much noise dampening so it can get relatively loud when busy.

    Four of us had a "Restaurant Week" dinner that included shared appetizers, entrees (salmon, pork and chicken dishes) and shared desserts. The food was very good and so was the wine and drinks list. Our waiter was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and overall hospitality of City Kitchen. We will certainly return!

    I was pleased to visit City Kitchen during Alexandria restaurant week, and I very much enjoyed the experience. I was very happy with my salmon dinner, and I thought it had been prepared perfectly. The wait staff was very nice, and attentive, and I will gladly return to City Kitchen for another wonderful meal.

    This was only our second time dining here, first time for lunch. We started with the Bouison cheese dip which was incredible! I had the Chattanooga chicken sandwich with a side of Mac and cheese. The sandwich was delicious, and as picky as I am about Mac and cheese, YUMMY!!! I had planned on only eating half my lunch and saving the rest, plan thwarted. It was so delectable, I ate ALL of it. My husband had the chicken fajita wrap, that too was amazing. It was lunch and a little busy, but Katie was on her game. She took great care of us! What a sweetheart! Awesome personality, great smile, and VERY efficient. I'd ask for her next visit ☺️

    I love the food at this place, I have been several times. My one criticism is that sometimes the service is not as good as it could be. Nothing terrible, just not the most alert waitstaff in the world. The food is excellent, though.

    First time visitor and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is a bit smaller than I had expected - I envisioned a space the size of Yard House. Nonetheless, the food was amazing! We had the artichokes and garlic knot appetizers and then port sandwich and sliders. All delicious!

    We had such a great dinner at City Kitchen tonight. Courtney was our excellent server and she was fantastic. She had great recommendations and was such fun! The food was just amazing: chicken and biscuit sandwiches, crab cake sandwiches and best of all: the scallops and pork belly. Thanks to everyone, including the very kind hostess on our way out who helped us confirm our Open Table points.
