We arrived around 7:40PM and foods that we ordered were served to us at 9PM. Really slow service which ruined the special day.

Enjoyed our meal, short ribs and risotto. Server basically forgot about us. Another server saw that we had finished our cocktails and asked if he could bring us anything else, that was a plus that he noticed.

CITY KITCHEN was the perfect venue for a "catching-up" luncheon with an old-time friend . We were greeted warmly by a very personable hostess who seated us at a nice quiet table. Our luncheon menu choices were plated beautifully and were delicious. Service this day was not spot-on. It seemed no one particular server was assigned our table. After a long wait, a well-dressed gentleman in a suit served our entrees. It took us a good length of time to flag down someone to refill our beverages. Since we were not on any time constraints, our lengthy lunch was not an issue for us.

I always enjoy taking friends to eat at City kitchen. The staff is professional, knowledgeable, and personable. The food is very good and served so that it can be enjoyed whether it is hot or cold
(hot dish versus a salad, for example). I will continue to come to City Kitchen!

The Easter buffet that our family attended was amazing. The choices were endless and of the highest quality. The carving station offered prime ribs, ham and turkey and the shrimp cocktail had an unlimited quantity of jumbo shrimp.

Appeared as though there was completely new wait staff of teenagers on their first collective night of work; first waitress nearly fainted and replacement waiter was shining star of the evening while appetizers arrived late or not at all; ordered burger without certain allergic sauce but it arrived slathered on the bun anyway; may try it again after staff has settled in on their learning curve and have a routine down in a few months.

It was a nice place to have lunch. I had lunch with a friend whom I hadn't seen in a while. My sandwich was good and the homemade soup was excellent. The only downside was that the waiter seemed to be in a hurry to remove our plates, almost hovering over us and coming back several times. I can understand this if it were crowded but it wasn't crowded at all and we wanted time to talk. Having said this I will go back again. The food was good and maybe this was just a fluke.

Excellent meal. Restaurant not at all crowded (Monday evening). Nice, eclectic menu. Ended up going with one of the specials (beef brisket), which was outstanding. Cheesy grits, and kale that was cooked similarly to collard greens. Everything was excellent. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

Been past this a 100 times but had no idea the space was so large and so cool inside! Our food was very good and they have a lot of variety in their menu -- which can be tough to pull off well, but they manage to do so here. Awesome wine list and many cocktail and beer choices, with perfectly attentive service. The bar is large, and this spot is great for a romantic dinner or a group function.

We have been to City Kitchen four times previously and had outstanding food and service on each previous visit. On our most recent visit, however, while the food was good, our service was very poor. The kitchen seemed extremely understaffed, and the delay resulted in our having to leave before one of our group received her food (as what was delivered to the table is something she explicitly asked not to receive (blackened vs. grilled fish)). We had informed our waiter when we arrived that we had a subsequent engagement (i.e., we needed to be able to leave in an hour).

My 3 friends and I had a lovely booth in the restaurant. Our waitress was friendly and patient. We all four ordered the chicken kabob for lunch and we all four loved it! It was absolutely delicious. We stayed a long time visiting after we were done eating and the staff never made us feel like we should leave. Excellent lunch!
