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.

The Corner Kitchen was very good. We had a reservation but needed to wait on the front porch for our table but it seems that the hostess forgot about us. After 15 minutes, I asked her how long the wait would be and she said she could seat us (but didn't apologize for the lapse or wait). Our waiter recommended the trout which was superb and was very flexible in swapping orzo for more veggies. We liked our meals and our waiter had just the right amount of attentiveness but not obtrusiveness. Overall, we would recommend this as a good find!

Everything was very good. Inspired food, great service, but the noise level. A room full of guests - talking - do not need loud music on top of it. It seems a hard concept to grasp for restaurants. Once the restaurant is filled turn the music down. In times I couldn't hear my own words. Makes a dinner conversation very strenuous. Thanks for reading.

Smoked salmon/potato crisps appetizer was good, calamari appetizer topped with lots of Jalapenos but breading was too thick and tasteless; the highly recommended trout was tasteless and boring, the swordfish was tasty and the pork chop was simple, tender and came over a scant amount of tiny pieces of sweet potatoes. The special order Souffle was a total disappointment; totally tasteless. Our wonderful waiter, Stuart, noticed we weren't eating it and said he would take it off the bill. After dinner, we remembered why we had not been back for so long. The food is very basic and overpriced for what is served. There are many far better restaurants in Asheville.

I have always enjoyed this restaurant, and, this time found the food and wait service slightly off. I will go back, because this is not the norm for this restaurant. In fact, it has always been a favorite.

This was #10 on open table it should be top 3 or #1 in Asheville, North Carolina. It was one of top 5 meals in my lifetime. I've also worked in the business for over 25 years and the people of Asheville are lucky to have such a great establishment.

Josh and his team at Corner Kitchen always do a fantastic job. We feel like we're being welcomed into a friends home, and they cook us a beautiful, plant-based meal that's colorful, and flavorful. Our server, Jacob was so attentive and friendly. We've been there several times, and consider ourselves "regulars"!

This is normally one of my favorite places but on the Saturday before Father's Day my friend's strip steak was of very poor quality. When he finally mentioned it, the owner came to our table and gave us our desserts on the house. My trout, one of their specialties, was excellent as usual. Since we hope that this was an isolated issue, we will be back for another try.

Delightful evening! While vacationing in North Carolina we discovered this wonderful restaurant. This lovely antique home provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of outstanding food and service. Both my husband and I had the trout which was enjoyable . I hope we get the opportunity to do a second time.

Corner Kitchen is one of our favorite local Asheville restaurants where we often celebrate special occasions and enjoy a frequent lunch or dinner with friends! The selection is always creative and delicious with menu changes/updates that are always seasonal, locally-sourced, and delectable!! It really is a jewel!!

Whenever is Asheville we try to go to the Corner Kitchen. Today, we enjoyed a Saturday brunch and it was wonderful. The seemingly straight forward, uncomplicated offerings did not overwhelm. I ordered the bagel with smoked salmon and a side of bacon. My dining companions all chose different menu items. The service was prompt and efficient while being delightfully (but not too much) friendly. The food was amazing and was composed of excellent well chosen items.....tremendous quality AND quantity. Highly recommend this for breakfast/brunch and eat outside if you can. (quite noisy inside, folks)

This is our favorite restaurant in Asheville. We moved here in 2005 and discovered it shortly thereafter, I believe. If we have visitors in town, or meeting up with old friends, etc., we always suggest the Corner Kitchen. Everything is consistent: food, atmosphere, staff though as with so many places it can get noisy. The good news is that it isn't so noisy as to be unbearable or impossible to converse; I draw the line there. Unfortunately, not the fault of the owners, but people who are clueless regarding "inside voice." We had the Reuben (exceptional), the catfish encrusted with sesame (brilliant), the salmon cakes (wonderful) and the falafel sandwich (unique, fresh, tasty). For dinner, you can't beat the trout and when the pork chops with blueberry catsup is on the menu, it's difficult to decide. Restaurants come and go, fads come and go, this has it all. And, it's no wonder why it was President and Michelle Obama's choice when they visited a few years ago. I don't mind paying a little more for a lunch or dinner if I get my money's worth. So many restaurants charge based on what they think they can get for something that is often mediocre. There are quite a few "trendy" foodie restaurants in Asheville now and many you can't even hear yourself think. And you'll pay twice as much for food half as good.

We found this place on line and liked it so much the first time we returned the following evening. Food was delicious and, since I have Celiac, I very much appreciated their knowledge and adaptability of gluten free food. We had never been to Asheville before and this certainly added to our appreciation of the area!

Dinner is always great at the Corner Kitchen! The atmosphere is casual but sophisticated, the waitstaff is friendly and professional, the food is consistently delish. I've lived in Asheville for 11 years and have to say that I've probably dined more here than any other restaurant.

service was disappointing for first time at corner kitchen, For some reason trout tasted like they put butter over top of dish even though sauce was on side, salt heavier than usual.

First time visiting Ashville and this restaurant. We dined outside which was quite pleasant as they did have fans so not sure re noise level inside. The food was outstanding! We were told the menu changes every few days based on the fresh local food products available. The dishes were light on heavy sauces which emphasized the fresh produce. Loved our experience here.

Always love dining here! Great food & service. We'll be back again (and soon).
Perfect from start to finish.
If you are in Asheville and enjoy dining at places that aren't large chains, then make sure you check this place out. I will suggest that you make reservations as it can and does fill up quickly. The restaurant is located in a house that is over 100 years old so that adds to the charm of the place. I walked in and I was promptly seated at a nice little table near the window looking out over the front of the restaurant. My server, Stewart, came up and I ordered the SC Peach & BBQ glazed pork chop with green beans and jalapeno sweet potato wedges. As I waited I looked around and they did a wonderful job converting this historic home into a charming and cozy restaurant. There are some paintings from local artists on the wall and the place is well lit with natural light and just has a very pleasant and welcoming feel to it. My food was then served nice and hot and it was just delicious. The pork chop was tender, not dry, and the glaze was the perfect mix of sweet and smoky. The potato wedges were excellent although I do wish they had served more of the them. Simply put, a fantastic meal. For dessert I was going to order the souffle, which you need order in advance as it does take 20 minutes to prepare, however this night I was unable to order it due to a broken piece of equipment. Although I was disappointed I ordered the pear chocolate cake with mint flavored ice cream. This was sinful to say the least! The cake was served nice and warm with a rich chocolate sauce and had a subtle hint of pear flavor. The mint ice cream was a nice cool touch and complimented it nicely. From start to finish this was a great experience with great service. If you are looking for a great meal and looking to escape the crowds of downtown Asheville then this place is it.
Loved that they had bagel and lox

Lunch was great..
Everything was perfection !!! Thank you or a delightful lunch!
The best place to eat in a town of great restaurants. Always a good choice.
My husband and I ate dinner at Corner Kitchen for our 2nd wedding anniversary, and it was truly a lovely evening! Our server was attentive, friendly, and offered great suggestions for both menu items and cocktails. The food was excellent all around; beautiful presentation, great flavors, and nice portions. And the dessert was amazing! Thank you Corner Kitchen; we will definitely be back!

Excellent food and service! Nice setting, really neat restaurant.
Food Served Cold
Had a reservation and was seated upon arriving. Ordered eggs, sausage and tortillas. Tortillas came out hard and sausage and eggs were hard on the top as if under a heat lamp for awhile. When I pointed out to the server, she proceeded to argue with me that they do not have heat lamps instead of fixing the problem. I asked for some more tortillas and just dealt with the cold food. For the price and the hype, I expected better as we made the trip from out of town and had heard good things.
