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.
