Good food, helpful and friendly staff
Dressy-casual Place with Mediterranean touches. Salmon not over cooked.
Food was good and seasoned well. Server was good but interrupted conversations service although good felt rushed until we settled our bill.
The front desk staff really ought to know not to seat a table for 2 clearly out for a quiet night right next to a table of 8 ladies having a ladies' night. Fortunately, after a few minutes of not being able to hear each other talk over the hens, our waiter was able to move us down the patio away from the large table. After that, it was a quiet, peaceful, WONDERFUL meal.
City Kitchen is a favorite lunch spot. Convenient location, good parking, great service, delicious food. The staff is attentive but not intrusive. Friendly greeting when you arrive and invitation to return when you leave.
The service and food are outstanding!! I was very impressed how personable our server was, not to mention the food is always excellent.
Very impressed with City Kitchen. When you walk in you’re immediately impressed with the layout and decor. Service was really great and the food was delicious. We also preferred off the sushi menu and was impressed with the sushi there. Nice wine list and really great choices from the menu to suit all pallets. The only cons were it was a little bit noisy and we were seated under the HVAC pipe so it was blowing down on the table despite it being so high up in the ceiling. Would definitely return again when traveling to the RDU area for work.
The food was very good. The service was good, but we felt rushed as the wait staff kept trying to clear the table before we were finished.
A great meal, and service, as always, but too loud in the dining area overlooking the kitchen. It was very hard to hear our server. Luckily we all got what we ordered!
The staff was very accommodating for our party's various dietary restrictions. We love coming here for business; everyone gets something they like.
Birthday. No special birthday treat
We enjoyed City Kitchen. Great Pizza and salads. My son and I had the Ribeye steak.
Very flavorful. Highly charred. Expensive for the quality of meat. Great wines and craft cocktails.
Fun and lively ambiance. We would go back but would pass on the steak.
City Kitchen was beyond our expectations! We enjoyed every bite of our food. We had the Tuna w shrimp special. The tuna was cooked rare, perfect! Our waiter Mitch was outstanding. We will definitely be back soon.
Not the best and rather disappointing. 1) All but one of our party arrived together. We were seated with assurances that they would direct our straggler to the table. This did not happen- when the straggler arrived a couple minutes after us he was told he was the FIRST to arrive and to wait for the others. 15 minutes later I had to text him to figure all this out and to get him to our table hidden way in the back. 2) Despite having reservations, we were seated at the backmost dark corner of the restaurant near a kitchen service area. 3) Despite informing staff multiple times (during online reservation and several times at the restaurant) that we were there to celebrate a birthday, no mention of this by any staff member to our party or to the guest of honor whatsoever. 4) Food was overpriced and only okay. 5) Usual quality of a George B. dining experience was nonexistent. WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING!! And will think twice before dining at a George B. establishment again...this after 20 years of patronage.
It’s always a great meal. I had the scallop and mushroom apps which was perfect. You’d lick the plate if there wasn’t any bread! Other diner had salmon and tuna, also done to perfection. The wait staff are always friendly, accommodating and attentive. Only thing is it’s noisy due to building.
A good variety of good food, convenient location and parking and a great server.
Had a reservation, went right to our table, which was appreciated. Our server was awesome throughout the evening. The filet mignon was a bit undercooked, but everything else was very good. It can be a bit difficult to carry on a conversation due to the noise level, but I like the energy!
Took my wife here for Valentine’s Day, 2018. Food was excellent, service was excellent. My only complaint is that they tried to squeeze too many people into their restaurant for this occasion. Our table top was tiny and could not fit two entree plates, water and wine glasses, and a bread plate comfortably(tried to upload pic, but site would not allow. Imagine two dinner plates, four glasses, and a bread plate on top of a 20” pizza). We were also extremely close to other diners, luckily they were nice people on both sides. I will definitely be back to see how they do during a slow Tuesday evening.
Great food! We managed to get a table upstairs, which was a lot quieter than the main room
My wife and I wanted to celebrate Valentine's Day by taking a break from work and going out to lunch, just the two of us. City Kitchen was easy to work with: making the reservation, being seated promptly, and served respectfully. The food was simple, fun, tasty, and healthy. We will definitely go back.
Food is mediocre compared to other Durham Chapel Hill options. Salmon uneven cut, over cooked , oily and had bones in it. Bread dip odd. Caesar salad average. Cocktails slightly above average . Crispy oysters good. Lots of competition at this price! The decor and art was awesome. Convenient mall parking.
We stopped for lunch. The food was barely OK. Very standard selection and prepared in an uninteresting way. Not tasty. The service war fine and the place itself is perfectly fine.but the main reason to go is the food. I would not recommend the restaurant.
Excellent service! They called to confirm our reservation, the hostesses greeted us warmly and our waiter, Dane, was very attentive without being overbearing. The perfect balance. The manager was involved with his staff throughout the evening providing guidance or help when needed. The food was very good although priced a few dollars too much for what you receive.
Everything was WONDERFUL except for the NOISE LEVEL which was terrible! Carpet? Baffles?
I have enjoyed many delicious meals and outstanding service with two or more friends
City Kitchen never disappoints! The food is always excellent and the service is above and beyond. This time, we tried the butternut squash, bacon, and brie pizza -- just as droolworthy as it sounds -- and had the calamari (always good) and the spinach and artichoke dip (mmmm). It is an excellent spot for a date night or taking guests from out of town to show them how good the Chapel Hill food scene is.
Everything was “just okay.” Went during restaurant week and wasn’t thrilled with the entree options. Lamb meatballs were good! I’d give them another try to test out the full menu. Nice atmosphere.
We had a lovely round table for 6. Our server, Shelly is fantastic. We always ask for her because she is so charming and always gets the orders right. Our 4 guests had never been and they all were extremely impressed with the food, service and smashing decor!
Service was excellent. Beef dish was very good. The chicken was overdone and dry. Dessert was gritty and a little dry.
Very nice place for special occasion
We had a bit of a hiccup with the reservation as there was quite a line to get in during restaurant week-but it was resolved. The service and food were spectacular!
Part of Triangle Restaurant week. Food was exceptional and the server was extremely attentive. A very enjoyable experience.
It had been awhile since I had been here. The food was good, not outstanding but good.
Our service was excellent. My sophisticated Wash., DC relatives really like City Kitchen.
We had a great dinner on Saturday night. The food was wonderful, the service a bit slow but helpful, and the only thing that marred the evening was how incredibly noisy it was in there. We were a long table of eight, and it was impossible to talk to anyone except the person on either side of you or directly across -- one end of the table had one conversation and the other end another. 4 of the guests had never been to City Kitchen before and each proclaimed that s/he would return. Those of us who are locals decided that Saturday night might not be "the night" for a large party, but will definitely be back.
Had the gnocchi and it was by far the best I’ve ever had!!!
City Kitchen is consistently great. Love the sushi!
Beautiful restaurant with beautiful and delicious food! We enjoyed all of our dishes, including the crispy calamari, the spicy brussels sprouts, and the bread. The hangar steak salad is, by far, the best steak salad I've ever eaten. So flavorful . . . just perfect. The butternut squash pizza is a must-try! So, so good! The apple tart with ice cream was pretty and delicious. We had an awesome server who was attentive and knew the menu well enough to make awesome recommendations. Can't wait to go back to City Kitchen!
Excellent, tasty and creative food.
Went for new years . My only complaint is that the food was really salty.
