“Charming stop in Biltmore Village”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We chose The Corner Kitchen for breakfast after it was recommended by the manager of our hotel. We were not disappointed. Located in a charming house on a tree-lined street, it was a breath of fresh air. Although the restaurant was mostly full around 10:00am on a Monday morning, we were seated immediately. The pecan-crusted trout with eggs, roasted asparagus and grits was delicious and the portion size was generous, serving as both breakfast and lunch. My husband had the special, balsamic eggs, a creative if slightly strange offering. The decor is decidedly and intentionally eclectic, leaning toward shabby chic. Service was attentive and friendly.

“Loved it!! We will return!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We made our reservation to have breakfast before going over to Biltmore. The old house sitting on the corner was just beautifull. We received a warm welcomefrom the staff and after i told them we have a reservation we we called by our first name! The food was excellent. Staff was super friendly. We had a table overlooking the patio. Would have loved to be eating on the patio but it was raining. Parking availible on the street. perfect location!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We have eaten here several times. We've had regular menu items and the specials--all have been great. There is usually a wait on weekends for brunch and lunch. Reservations are recommended for dinner. The prices are a little high, but you won't be disappointed. It is located in the Biltmore Village where there are many unique shops and restaurants. The area is very pedestrian friendly.

“Good Food (Don't look at the dirt)”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

In Asheville for a day and tried this based on reviews; Overall a very good meal and service.

Facility
Located in a converted old house outside of Biltmore Estate in Biltmore Village. Fortunely the food and service off-set the beat-up interior and dirt-dirt and dirt. The place probably looked quaint and arts at some point, now it looks very tired, run-down and very dirty; Needs scrubbing and lots of paint and replace all the furniture. All the rooms are jammed with tables and it is a little tight but fortunately it was empty on our visit

Food
Group of 4 arrived just before lunch serving time ended -- only 2 other tables in use. Sat in what was the house's enclosed porch. The corn & crab chowder arrived tepid so had to wait a while to get the waitress's attention (with only two tables of customer's where was she?); Returned with a hot cup after a trip to the micro-wave. Good flavor but no hint of any crab -- milk based potato soup with a few kernals of corn. The burger was cooked as requested -- good grilled flavor -- the special hertiage tomato slice was green and hard and lacked flavor -- good quality dense bun. Potato salad was very good with greek feda cheese; Other orders -- very good Reuben with tender corn beef and the grilled rye was crisp but not greasy(most places can't do that) Large salad with well seasoned fruit flavored chicken. Typical sodas / tea but did try a ginger flavored drink which is good.
Slightly pricy -- $66 for 4 but average for this section of Asheville; Worth your time and money.
