City Kitchen - Alexandria
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.
I real treasure, nearby. I had the amazing scallop and pork belly dish, each bite was heaven. Great beer menu
New years day brunch. I am always surprised at the menu selection, staff friendliness and attention, and really good food! It is definitely worth s try!
My wife and I have tried lots of different things on the menu and have never been disappointed.
My wife and I have a list of 100+ restaurants we visit regularly in the area. This will become one of our regular “go to” restaurants.
Brunched here solo on New Year’s Day. No wait. Delicious waffle with bacon, mimosa, coffee, and good service, for a good price. The burgers and other items looked great, too, as did the beer and wine list. Had a cozy booth in front of the wall-fire despite only being able to book a high-top table. Families with fairly noisy small kids didn’t deter my enjoyment of the meal. :) Tucked away in a strip mall with plenty of parking and where you can also do your Home Depot shopping across the parking lot and also get your frshboita, hummus, and baklava purchased for later from the Mediterranean Bakery a couple doors down.
New Year’s Eve
Uniformly excellent service, food and drinks. Good for a new option, or a returning customer. Prices are reasonable for the high quality food and crafted drinks.
Great service and great food
Great place in surprising location.
We went for brunch. The eggs over easy we're cooked perfectly. Excellent sausage gravy.
Have been to this restaurant several times. When it first opened, I wasn't very thrilled with food and service. As it is in a great location, we did return several times. Each occasion was better than the previous. This last occasion was very good. The salmon dish was great and very substantial. My wife had a vey large portion salad entree which she could not come close to finishing. The 3 others in our party all liked their food very much. Recommend giving it a try...I will return again.
First time here I was blown awsy. 2nd and third times, food was so-so. Service is always great, however.
They have something for everyone. I personally like their monthly specials. Been there several times and never been disappointed. Great Service.
Great service at this local neighborhood gem. Artichoke appetizer was so good! Brisket special was good, not great. Pork chop entree is excellent but be aware that it comes topped with sauce.
Great waitress, great food, great experience!
They didn’t have my reservation through open table. But, they were able to accommodate
Great first experience. Food was very good and the staff was very accommodating for what turned out to be my surprise birthday party. My only critical comment I had for my time there was that some food came out a tad cool (like it had been sitting there for a bit). Otherwise the place is great, food was delicious, and the staff were very friendly.
Enjoyed a weekend dinner at City Kitchen. Good variety in the menu, good service, and tasty food!
I’ve been visiting City Kitchen since it opened over a year ago. Their menu has a great variety without being overwhelming, and they have great deals on lunch.
I like all the restaurants in this group! Great welcoming atmosphere and very satisfying food.
We love city kitchen. Always a good experience. Pizzas are great
Really good food, very timely service. It’s close to home and a real regular spot for us. Never disappointed.
This was our first time here and the food was amazing! We’ll definitely be back!
Great food during restaurant week. Well worth a try, I’m going to go back and try the normal menu.
Wings were not hot...went for the restaurant week special and ordered items that we could get off of the regular menu since they should have better experience cooking those items. It was a hit or miss-fried artichokes, trout, pork chop (although slightly too pink and only warm), and truffle mash potatoes were delicious. Most of the asparagus were great too (there were a few with grainy/woody stalks). The lemon risotto was undercooked (hard) and mushy. The baked apple crumble was good but would have liked it cooked longer (the topping was too wet/pasty for me-the boys loved the raw brown sugar oats). We will try the restaurant again with some of the regular menu items. Also provide a dessert without nuts.
Friendly Service. Great Restaurant Week Menu. Great Value. My entire family loves it.
Good food, good value. Had been noted as a neighborhood gem, and it is.
Consistently good food; we love City Kitchen, whether for just the two of us or to meet friends.
I love City Kitchen. The service is always wonderful. I've only had brunch here, but it is one of my favorite places that is a "neighborhood" go-to when friends and family are visiting.
We've been to this restaurant many times. The food is reliably good, although I have to say that the Baltimore crab cakes (which I love) seem to have a bit more filler than when we first went there. A glass of the house Pinot Noir was extremely good. All in all we had a good time and enjoyed the local vibe, despite the fairly high noise level.
Wonderful place, will go to again. aaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been to City Kitchen a couple of times now and each time my service is horrible. They seat you quickly, but take forever to stop by to get your beverage orders and take your food orders. But the bill comes quickly. That being said, the food is good.
Great neighborhood find! Food was delish! Fried artichokes amazing, recommend Chattanooga chicken...yum! Drink choices good, great variety...I'll be back!
Excellent as always, one of my favorite places in Alexandria.
Wonderful experience- great food and excellent service from all staff.
Hidden gem. Great beer and wine selections, amazing food.
I like the variety menu, and the cuisine that covers geographical regions of the country. Ambiance is great, and the food was well prepared and delicious. The servers were very attentive, polite and quickly responded to all questions that our party had regarding the meal. It's worth going back to!
Stopped by for brunch with a former classmate, food was delicious, service was stellar, and the brunch cocktails are delicious and well priced! Highly recommend!
Only negative is it's hard to see the restaurant sign since it's placed below the gymboree sign but that's more logistic and nothing to do with the restaurant itself :)
We had a nice Friday evening meal, that was just perfect to cap off the busy work week! Food was creative and delicious.
Normally City Kitchen is a favorite. I don't know what happened this time, but if this had been my first visit, I would never return. I ordered from the special menu the Mann Burger, at $17. From the description on the menu, I was ready for an amazing treat. Much to my surprise, this simple combination of burger and fries was a complete let down. Beyond the bun, this burger had no flavor whatsoever. It was over cooked and tasteless. The fries were undercooked and limp. Sorry City Kitchen, but know you can do better. Please figure out how to get your magic back and I hope my next visit yields better results.
We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch at City Kitchen. We will definitely be back!
