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.

Homey and relaxing. Good brunch good food. Had lox and bagel (bagels are grilled). Cream cheese scrambled eggs were surpriseingly light. Waffle excellent. Potatoes tasty but greasy. Coffee good not special. Service was OK. Excellent value and great for breakfast. We will go back.

I continue to be impressed with the gastronomic offerings of Asheville. The Corner Kitchen is right up there with the great restaurant experiences we have had since my introduction to the area in July of this year. Corner Kitchen had great service, outstanding food, and cozy atmosphere. What's not to like?

We were celebrating our engagement with a dinner provided by my fiance's boss. We wanted to choose somewhere new that was also out of our typical price range and our choice was Corner Kitchen because of the high acclaim I had already received. I have a close friend who works there and knows the owner and speaks highly of it all and the buzz was all very accurate! Great food, atmosphere, and service from waitresses and servers. We may go back very soon for a drink and dessert!

We had a reservation for four but ended up having three out-of-town friends who wanted to join us. We only had to wait a few minutes and they thoughtfully put two tables together for us and made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious and as always the service was impeccable. I love this place

Thank you Open Table for hosting the reservation service. They were busy so we are glad we had one. Just a caution the restrooms are upstairs. They are all one seaters. Steep stairs in 108 year old home so those with mobility challenges like me, don't wait until the last minute to go.
The staff was very kind when I asked for honey, changed my egg etc Great food & what relief the hashbrowns don't have raw onions. I'm not an onion fan & being in the minority I'm usually offered everything swimming in them.
It was loud so those looking for a quiet place may want to go during a quieter time. No music just loads of people. All the parallel parking was taken so we parked at Wells Fargo & didn't have trouble. .whew!

Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with our family the morning after Thanksgiving. All eight of us were from out of town so we loved the historic feel from this friendly "local" place. Look forward to visiting again...the grits were the real thing :-)

While all of our meals and experiences in Asheville were excellent, our dinner at Corner Kitchen stood out as the best because of the food, service and ambience. It's location near Biltmore Village is a plus - easy parking - and the building feels so cozy! We both enjoyed our pre-dinner cocktails, Eggplant Napoleon, Trout with mashed sweet potatoes which we shared. Because it was my birthday, our server let us pick a dessert - bread pudding, my favorite, was so good we took the rest home and enjoyed the next day warmed up. She also extended military discount to my boyfriend (10 years Army Reserves) which saved us a bit. Highly recommended the Corner Kitchen when in Asheville!

I have been a fan for many years of the Corner Kitchen. One of the reasons has been the mere thought of my favorite sandwich, the portabello mushroom. This past Friday I couldn't believe it when I found out it was taken off the menu. The menu has changed since my last visit and truthfully, nothing really grabbed me as a substitute. I just don't have much of a reason to go back now which makes me sad.

We enjoyed our visit, or server was very pleasant, personable and efficient. We sat in the bar area, which is our favorite spot. I had a salad with asparagus, mixed greens, spiced nuts and cranberries. The dressing was excellent, salad was good but I would like some romaine added to the "sticks and twig" greens. I also had the crab corn chowder everyone raves about, I thought it was fine, but average. My husband had shrimp with risotto, it was fine but we found the risotto too cheesy and somewhat over cooked. More like macaroni and cheese, not the sophisticated preparation we've experienced before. We do like the Corner Kitchen and it's location and charm, just think it wasn't over the top.

This is a lovely place in Biltmore Village. Great atmosphere with the Christmas lights in place on the surrounding buildings. Very charming. We had roast chicken and pork chops. The food was locally sourced and well prepared. I especially enjoyed my crispy brussels sprouts. Highly recommended.

Our dinners were fabulous. One was a delicious tile fish on a bed of squash with a Mediterranean sauce and chunks of fresh carrots and garden pea pods in the sauce. Absolutely superb. The other was a traditional paella, also wonderful. Our waiter was gracious, professional and helpful. We went back a couple of days later for breakfast--also excellent. The next time we are in Asheville, we will certainly eat at Corner Kitchen again.

We were on time for our reservation and the restaurant was ready to seat us. Our waitress greeted us quickly, took our drink order, returned shortly with drinks and took our food order. My wife wanted to substitute a vegetable on her plate and that was not a problem. Our salads were excellent, and when we were done our entree arrived. Sadly, we were too full for dessert which I know from past experience is awesome. Our food was excellent and we always enjoy eating here.

Great place for Birthday lunch with friend . It can be a little noisy on the porch, but the porch is a fun and bright place to enjoy you meal. Service is always warm and friendly. The food was fresh and presented nicely on the plate. I had the lentil soup that was hearty and with a nice ham flavor . It was just a little to salty for me. My friend and I had two different salads. The salads were fresh and had the perfect amount of dressing. I would go for lunch again. In fact I eat here often an have always had good food and service.

Don't let the name fool you. This is great food in a relazed atmosphere, not some hokey little lunch spot. The salmon with orzo was the best tasting dish I've had in a long while. We split the fried oyster appetizer which is tasty and I never ever eat oysters and shared the salmon but it was so good we could have each had one. But that left room for dessert!

The food was great! Omelet and Waffle were delicious. Courteous wait staff. Be sure to make a reservation. We were seated right away and we were a few minutes earlier than our reservation time. Without the reservation, wait time could have been up to two hours.

We were in Asheville and booked three restaurants recommended on trip advisor. One was corner kitchen. I was expecting an upscale, foodie's delight place but got a basic, plain as good be food and ambiance. Don't get me wrong the food was good , just not what I was expecting. Supposedly farm to table led me to believe I'd see a lot of creativity on the menu and really well prepared food. My bbq chicken was pretty typical of what I'd find anywhere. The sides of southern string beans were clearly canned string beans overcooked and bland. The corn dish was good but not the exciting southern food I was hoping for. My wife's shrimp was supposed to be spicy but was more on the bland side. The fried oyster appetizer was the best dish of the night. Crispy on the outside and tender inside. Sauce for it was also good. Service was very good and price was pretty typical.

We were vacationing in Asheville over Veteran's Day weekend and made a reservation at Corner Kitchen based off Yelp reviews. The ambience is nice and suitable to bring our 4 year old. Our server was lacking in personality and wasn't particularly friendly. She was short and to the point throughout our dining experience. The crab corn chowder was delicious. When our meals arrived they were warm so I brought that to the servers attention. They put them in the oven to re-heat. We had the NY strip steak and the Snapper dinner. They were good but didn't blow me away on taste or creativity. For the price and location I had set my expectations higher.

The food quality was not what I expected from a craft type of kitchen. The Chorizo was burnt and the sausage tasted weird. The eggs were noting to run home about. The grits were overcooked and dry. The best thing about this place was the jam on the table.
I would take the spray can of Freebreeze out of the bathrooms. The gentleman before me had a horrible stomach issue and sprayed the hell out of the place , all over the toilet seat and the floor. I noticed the floor was very slippery and had the take a wad of paper towels to the floor so I wouldn't slip. When I was wiping i noticed the seat had been sprayed so I had to clean it before sitting.
Overall a horrible experience!
