Wow, what an experience. We visited Kitchen last weekend. We arrived around 5:15PM and the place was nearly empty. We grabbed a couple of seats at the bar and by 6PM the place was packed. Leif was our bartender and he was an excellent host....More

Had an excellent meal that was fresh, crisp and tasty. I had the Hangar Steak that was cooked perfectly, and they even cut out the muscle in the middle leaving two delicious slabs of meat. Great sauce, brown with a somewhat thick texture and very...More

Great spot for French bistro cuisine and rarely found in the Triangle. The mussels are my favorite and the cheese plate was also good. Good choice of wine but I had beer, all local.

The seating is limited and much in demand at this fine local favorite. It’s best to arrive early at Kitchen, not to be confused with City Kitchen at the University Place shopping mall. The French bistro dishes are always nicely-prepared and the service is attentive....More

The common bond in our group is that we all own French 2CV vintage cars and Kitchen was a great venue for our 2017 Bastille Day dinner. Dick and Sue Barrow gave us a great welcome and the service throughout the meal was excellent. Wine...More

I see people raving about this place; and truly when we were there this little hole in the wall was packed! So it must be good for a lot of people? But bad is bad---and we had some legitimate complaints. First of all it was...More
