My wife and I heard about Urban Kitchen OBX from friends just this past week. Stopped in on Friday evening - the 20 minute wait was absolutely worth it. The cocktails and appetizers were tasty and served in no time. We split our entree (strip steak) and had enough room to enjoy dessert. We've dined all over the world and can honestly state this was a top 10 meal. Hopefully Joe and company can expand into the adjacent vacant space - his concept will quickly outgrow the current space.

A small place, mostly for couples or families of 4 or less. I saw only one table that could accommodate a larger party. There are only 2 kids meal options, the size and food is better for couples than families. We went on Friday and ordered the steelhead and pork chop. The steelhead was very good, complimentary tastes, well done. The pork chop was far too pink in the middle due to its size. I would rate the pork chop as average, the best part was the corn bread that accompanied it. Fairly good appetizer selection. Good beer and wine choices. Note to the restaurant, what you were calling a Gin Mint mixed drink is actually a Pimm's Cup. The deserts were by far the best. The establishment is very clean and the staff were very nice. I can definitely see this becoming an excellent restaurant, but it still seems too new and has a few growing pains to work out before it reaches the excellent plateau.

Stopped in here with my family for dinner. We love good locally sourced food and are frequent patrons of a similar restaurant in our hometown, so we were excited to find somewhere with this food philosophy in Corolla. Asked about gluten free options for one of my children and was immediately turned away. She didn't even pause to consider. Their menu clearly has several items that could be made into a gluten free meal if they cared enough to try. We would have appreciated at least a thoughtful discussion. Dismissive treatment of potential customers. What a shame.

Three of us ate here last night. The place is small with only 10-12 tables. The service was very good and the food was outstanding. We had the New York strip, the gazpacho, the burger, the cantaloupe salad, the vege-entree, and two desserts - and it was all wonderful!

Something delicious for everyone. Bistro atmosphere, unpretentious ambience, simple but elegant decor, friendly service. Order anything. It's all good. Be sure to order dessert too.
