About Corner Kitchen
Tucked into a quiet corner of Biltmore Village is one of Richard Sharp Smith's original Tudor Style cottages, and one of Asheville's most surprising restaurants. Chef Joe Scully brings years of culinary experience to bear in his special North Carolina take on Pan-American cuisine (he calls it "Caromerican"), while host Kevin Westmoreland makes you feel as welcome as an old friend at breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Dine in the sunny “Side Porch”, where tables cluster around a generous bar, or in one of the cozy fireplace rooms - upstairs or down. When the weather's right, relax on the Patio and take in the singular beauty of Historic Biltmore Village. If you are looking for the perfect spot for your next meeting, luncheon or other group function, call or email and make arrangements for an unforgettably great special event.

Corner Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Food was great and the staff was excellent. The entrees were cooked perfectly and each ingredient fed into the overall dish. We also had the soufflé for dessert and it was amazing as well. Will definitely be back when we come to Asheville again.

We try to always make dinner reservations at The Corner Kitchen whenever we are in Asheville. We have recommended it to several of our friends and have taken some of them there with us. The food is absolutely delicious. Even if you don't know what you are eating...it is still delicious. Wine collection is varied and a good assortment. We also like the idea that the chef sends out a little taster he is trying out. Always yummy! Wait staff is fantastic and friendly. I don't think you need to change a thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have always loved this location. It is a one of a kind, historic place (one of the original houses in Biltmore Village) and the food at Corner Kitchen is delicious. I have met my friends there for both an early breakfast and also lunch, and both times it was delicious.

We were lucky to get outdoor table, which though patio was small, it was quite charming and comfortable, even in the mid-day summer heat. The service was casually attentive (very good) and food delicious. Recommend Joe's chips with blue cheese dressing and the fresh salmon patties.

This is truly a gem! Beautiful restaurant and great menu. Also, I have a severe gluten allergy and our server was over the top, extremely helpful with great dinner choices that could be made gluten free! It was our last night of vacation and what a great choice. A lovely restaurant with seating upstairs as well as downstairs.

We had a wonderful lunch on two prior occasions and anticipated a great dinner.
Although the dinner was okay, it was not exceptional as hyped. The taste, presentation, and ingenuity of food and service were all average.

As always, Corner Kitchen was a great place to bring out-of-towners visiting Asheville - the food was delicious and we got to see the beautiful shops of Biltmore Village after lunch. We made reservations so we waited less than 5 minutes on the outdoor porch. Full bar so we got to enjoy an afternoon cocktail - highly recommend Corner Kitchen!

We have been coming to the restaurant for few years. It never dissappoints. This time our dinner was simply delicious. Heirloom tomatos and mozzarella were very flavorful. The chicken was cooked to perfection. But the highlight was the chocolate mousse. It was divine.

My wife and I had dinner reservations on a Friday evening. Our first time dining and for sure our last. We both started out with the soup of day - crab/corn chowder; taste was good however the temperature was just warm and no side cracker or bread. Sure there is always the option to send it back to stick it in a microwave but seriously it's soup - someone in the line should have tested it for temperature.
Next we shared the tomato/mozzarella appetizer or what most call Caprese Salad. It was done well but overpriced at $12 as there were three slices tomato and two slices of cheese.
My wife's entree was the striped sea bass: size was small even for her.
I had the strip steak. It was cooked as ordered - medium/rare. The problem was it is served in a bowl which makes slicing the meat fairly awkward. The vegetable & potato were plain and laid in the bottom of the bowl. Not sure why they chose the bowl.
So with no drinks and the above the bill was $88. We both felt that the price was way beyond the level of the food.

CK used to be our neighborhood spot, then, years ago, it got "discovered" and had a hard time keeping up the quality of service and food. We opted out for a while, but recently returned. Now it seems to be not so busy, and our last half dozen meals have been as good as any restaurant you can find anywhere. Many local products, waitstaff that is intelligent, friendly and familiar with the menu and wine list. We had a crab meat cocktail served with "cocktail sauce sorbet" which was stunningly beautiful and a perfect spicy beginning. Our entrees, a thick piece of swordfish were perfectly prepared (that is a difficult fish to get done, but not dry) and the Israeli cos-cous salad could not not have been more perfect for a hot summer night. We skipped desert - but from previous meals we know they are all delicious - esp. the pear dark chocolate cake with peppermint stick ice cream. Don't tell everyone - but try the Corner Kitchen - it is wonderful.

The food we selected was absolutely amazing. Very creative without being overly done. The unusual ingredients blended and did not fight each other. We were able to taste the experience the chef had mind. Perfectly done.

Fantastic experience. It's quaint and unassuming but the service and food were outstanding. We can't wait to go back! From the appetizer to the dessert - we had it all - no complaints. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine list and recommended one that was perfect. I had the trout and my husband had the steak. Yum yum yum!

My family and I had a wonderful experience at Corner Kitchen. Great ambiance and service. The food was just as great as I expected - we had the dark stout beef brisket, fried chicken sandwich, and the burger. All were terrific. We tried dessert as well - white chocolate bread pudding (most frequently ordered), fudge cake/brownie with peppermint ice cream, and the watermelon prosecco sorbet (amazing and refreshing!). Everything exceeded our expectations!

We have been to Corner Kitchen previously and always enjoy it, usually for special occasions. We did make a reservation (and our name was right at the top of the list when we arrived would strongly recommend that). The parlor was closed and due to inclement weather, the patio seating was also closed, but we were seated promptly.
The menu was a little heavy on the seafood side this night. I did order their standby, pecan crusted trout. It was very good. My wife ordered a strip steak, and it was also very good. The sides for both were complementary and quite good. I like the fact that they buy local and do some farm-to-table type stuff.
Key lime pie with gingerbread crust was also very good, and service was excellent.
It is pricier than we spend on a typical meal, but it is always a nice treat, and there is typically a crowd outside waiting, so that is most often a sign of a great location.

Every visit to Corner Kitchen is great! The service and the food are incredible and the very unique menu offers something for every taste imaginable!! What a nice place to have in my own neighborhood for any meal and also a "Must visit" for any of my folks coming in for a visit. I have never been disappointed there!

We had a reservation for lunch and they seated us immediately. Husband ordered bloody mary and said it was the best part of his meal.
He ordered the reuben sandwich...supposedly something they are known for...and half of the sandwich was fat and gristle. He left it on the plate and the waiter did not inquire or comment aa to how was the meal or the obvious fat on the plate.
I had the fried chicken sandwich with pimento cheese. Chicken was overcooked. Pimento cheese was good. I kept thinking that chic-fil-a should add pumento cheese to their menu. And i wish i had eaten lunch at Chic-fil-a instead of here.

Maybe it was the fact that it was a holiday- July 4. Maybe it was that they had just had a flood in a part of the restaurant and were preoccupied. Maybe it was something else, but all aspects of our experience were just fair. - and though fairly priced, they weren't giving the food away. We had the sense we were annoying them by being there, and they just wanted to go home. As much a metaphor for the evening as a real issue, the owner was right there as we left and did not even offer a "thank you for coming". This was not our first visit to Corner Kirchen. It will be a long time before we return.

As always, did not disappoint. We arrived 15 minutes early, and were seated right away in the main dining room. They were out of the scallops that I wanted at 7:30 on a Sunday night, but it was a holiday weekend. We ordered the swordfish, which was excellent - and the polenta cake was delish. Our son-in-law's steak was done perfectly, I've never ordered steak here so can't speak myself. Our daughter ordered the pork chop special, which was delicious, however her dinner was lukewarm. Our only complaint. They were busy over July 4 weekend so we didn't send it back to the kitchen. Calamari and spring roll appetizers were great. Still one of our favorites in Asheville.

This restaurant is in a historic old building in the upscale shopping area known as Biltmore Village. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Would have rated it excellent, but the Asian tofu dish I ordered was loaded with salt ... very flavorful, but way too salty. The prices were somewhat high for the amount of food, but overall, we were pleased with the experience.

We ate here twice for dinner and twice for breakfast with and without friends. The food was delicious every time. We were visiting Asheville but had lived here 12 years ago. The Corner Kitchen was very good then and still is a very nice restaurant.
