We had the privilege of being one of the first diners in the new location at the Beaufort marina overlooking the water. The upstairs restaurant has always had spectacular views but never had such excellent food as we experienced during our visit. We 4 diners all had different entrees,including fresh mahi,shrimp and grits,beef, and pasta with bolognese sauce. My mahi was absolutely fresh and perfectly cooked. One dining companion had the pasta and said it was as good as what she had experienced in Italy. We also had the Thai meatballs which were spicy and superb. We shared a few desserts and all were very tasty and disappeared quickly.
The view from the upper porch was glorious during sunset.
The only complaint we had was that the noise level inside was far too loud(from other diners and also the wind rushing in on us every time a server opened the door) to have a conversation. We asked and were moved outside where it was quiet and peaceful.
The servers had a few missteps but this was the opening weekend and I expect things will improve in that area as they gain experience in the new location.
I highly recommend City Kitchen for its stellar food and view. We will be returning often as we live locally.
