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

Visited this restaurant on a visit to Asheville to see the Biltmore mansion. Located in Biltmore Village, the Corner Kitchen offers a limited, but delicious, menu. My wife and I were pleased with our salmon and braised beef entrees. You should definitely try this restaurant when in Asheville.

My brother and I had an excellent experience. We were seated promptly. Our waiter, Tyler, reviewed the choices and then provided terrific service for the rest of the meal. We were both delighted with our food choices.

Enjoyed our second visit to this very popular restaurant. Don't go without a reservation even for lunch, unless you want to hang out for a while. Food is always good and service is always great. We'll remember next time to not go during tourist season (this is fall leaf viewing season). Can be tough finding parking with blocks of the restaurant since the village is full of great shops, eateries and galleries and is close to Biltmore Estate. Corner Kitchen needs to be on your list.

We have been to Corner Kitchen several times and always liked it a lot. However, this time we were shown to a table upstairs; if we had been even slightly overweight, we would not have been able to sit comfortably at the table because the niche where it was located was so small. Additionally the only restrooms for the restaurant are upstairs so we were constantly seeing and hearing people lining up and going to and from the bathroom. This did not enhance our dining experience and my husband said he would never go back. The food is always good here but if you can avoid it, DO NOT SIT UPSTAIRS !!!

One of our favorites but this night was not their best. It's tourist season so places are really busy even on a week night. Food was not piping hot. Fries had been made soggy by sauce.(Should have been separate) Pork chop was not tender and the sliced sirlion was only partially sliced and not real tender. Will chalk it up to a busy night but I don't want a favorite to be slipping. Still the service was good, and it has a good vibe. Salad was good and generous as well as oyster starter.

Absolutely wonderful food. You need to order in waves for tapas, obviously. The best octopus I've ever had and the sautéed mushrooms were wonderful as well as the piquillo peppers. Need a reservation, there was a line out the door for brunch.

A great place to have breakfast. They even take reservations, so it was easier to plan and there was always a line out the door. There is a porch and outside seating when it's nice. The pancakes weren't my favorite, but the cream cheese scramble was great. The blackberry jam was great too.

Outstanding meal once again! This is the 2nd time in 3 years we've spent our anniversary in Asheville and dined at the Corner Kitchen on our anniversary. The staff was great, wishing us a happy anniversary as we arrived and as we left! They delighted us with a complimentary dessert (white chocolate soufflé with grand marnier sauce-wonderful)! Our entrees, the scallop dish & NY strip, were luscious as well as the Brie app and strawberry basil martini! If I lived in Asheville, this would be our go to restaurant. The only glitch on this visit was sitting in the bar area, which was a bit noisier than we would have liked. That being said, I recommend this restaurant totally! If you're in Asheville, it is a must for dinner!

On the Main Street in Blowing Rock, with lots of interesting stores. Excellent food and coffee, and it's nice to be able to get a half order of Eggs Benedict. Breakfast all day. Parking was difficult because of "Art in the Park". Delicious vegetable filled crepe, interesting soup (Brazilian cashew). Will definitely visit again. Great Argentine style bread. Our server (Sean) was very attentive. Food came out quickly and hot.

We requested to sit outside because we had our two dogs with us for lunch. Our server wasn't quite on top of filling up beverages. We had an elderly guest with us and had to make particular changes to her dish and the server wasn't very patient. Once our meal arrived, two of us needed something additional but our sever didn't touch base with us for over ten minutes so we had to wait that additional time to enjoy our lunch. We have dined before for dinner and our experience was day and night compared to lunch. Disappointing.

A friend recommended the Corner Kitchen to me as she really liked it. It was very close to my hotel so I made a reservation and I was not disappointed. The food was great and the service staff were very friendly and so accommodating. I hope to go again when I visit Asheville!

Ate at sister restaurant previous night. Guess that set the bar too high!
Then again, so did every other meal we had during 4 day stay in Asheville....
Service at Corner Kitchen was fine (Stuart)
Food was another story!
Brisket was so tough I could barely chew it up. I literally had to rip it apart; I could not cut it.
It was very fatty, even for brisket.
Potatoes were tasteless.
Chicken (wife's entree) was WAY dry.
Cheese grits were tasteless (see potatoes)
It was so noisy upstairs (mostly due to rowdy 6 top at top of stairs) that one party in our room left without ordering and a second party left after a glass of wine. I'm NOT blaming this on the restaurant. These 20/30 somethings were clearly intoxicated. I do think they could've urged them to can any expletives?
Very, very disappointing.
I've never felt moved to write a review like this before.

Food always gets 5 stars but the service is lacking. Last 2 visits we were seated upstairs- not the best ambiance . The server was friendly but seemed way overworked. They had the whole upstairs take care of and when we went downstairs they were waiting tables there. Seems to be way understaffed. Once our food was delivered we were forgotten. No more water, no more anything. Had to go downstairs and request a "to-go" box and our check.

The menu is changed regularly to showcase the local favorites and in-season vegetables. The inside is very much a "home" style - smaller rooms, a few tables each, upstairs, downstairs. The menu is not huge, but everything on it sounded wonderful. I was able to accommodate a low-carb diet, and everyone had a delicious meal! The service was very friendly. We arrived early, so weren't sure we could be seated. They were able to accommodate. The server was attentive, but not overly so. It's an upscale menu, but prices weren't out of line with the area or the food quality. It was great !

This was the morning we packed up to conclude our visit to Asheville and it could not have ended on a better note. Great breakfast offerings, great setting, great service. Had the chorizo and eggs and it was excellent. Highly recommend!

Our go-to neighborhood restaurant when the tourist traffic slows down just a bit. Tonight's Brisket was exceedingly fatty, but they were easily willing to substitute perfect asparagus instead of brussell sprouts for me, and the cheese grits were perfect. One warning, even though the menu changes daily - and is dated and posted on-line - it still may differ from what you are actually offered. Don't get your heart set on Duck - it may not be there.

Was slightly disappointed with Corner Kitchen after reading reviews. Had hoped for more local, farm-fresh ingredients and really tasty cuisine. Overall, the food was mediocre, lacking any really memorable flavor. The outdoor patio seating is lovely and provided a nice place to meet friends for brunch. However, based on the quality of the food, I think we'll try some place else next time.
