We've never had a bad meal at Kitchen. We love the use of local ingredients, the true Bistro feel and the seasonal dishes. Casual and elegance together. Absolutely fabulous and perfect late night romantic rendezvous but also a great place to meet friends

Pros: Imaginative, well prepared food, reasonable wine list, ample parking. Cons: No reservations for less than six people. Can get crowded. No wine chillers. The kitchen smells pervade the dining area--not always a good thing. Tips: Bring your own wine chillerif you wish to linger over a bottle of white wine. Overall rating 3.5 stars out of 5. This is...

We've been here many times and the food and service have never failed us. I especially love the rotating smoked fish starter or the salmon on lentils. Portions are excellent. Even better they serve later into the evening- with a smile! Be sure to try the pickle plate, always a treat!

My husband took me to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was really the best place to eat in all the area. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the the goat cheese starter and Thai mussels. Felt like back in Europe! The service and atmosphere were cozy ad welcoming. highly recommend it!

Hard to see from the street. Really nice little French bistro in a small strip mall. Owner's wife greeted us and during the evening made sure everything was great. Our server was Brian and he was fast, friendly and knowledgeable. We shared an order of mussels, beet salad, and short-ribs with mashed potatoes and broccoli. Cherry custard dessert was excellent...

Cozy little restaurant that serves fabulous mussels and other dishes. Tonight we had mussels and they are just devine. After eating them you get bread and soak up the broth for a second course of delicious taste. The fries served with the mussels are yummy too. They don't take reservations but we didn't wait too long on a Wednesday night... More

Have been here many times, but recent visit was after return from Paris trip. My wife believes the mussels are better than what was experienced in Paris at a restaurant that specialized in mussels. We frequently dine at the bar so we can get sports update from excellent bartender. I frequently order the special, and it is always excellent. Have... More

Excellent food! A wonderful little neighborhood restaurant as you will find in France, No pretense; just great food. Everything I've had here over the four years they have been open has been great. The mussels are delicious, excellent soups and entrees and the fried oysters are to die for. Don't look for a fancy dining room but expect great food.

Kitchen in Chapel Hill is small so you might have to wait. It is worth it! Food is very good and the atmosphere is simple.

This friendly little restaurant (no bookings for tables of less than 6, worth the wait - but easier to get in after 8) is a gem. The chef has specials alongside a really varied menu of original dishes, all cooked to perfection. The meat was so tender and flavourful a little went a long way. The borsch was excellent. Helpful...
