Urban Kitchen is a charming "farm to fork" restaurant in Corolla on the Outer Banks. As other reviewers have noted, do not let the strip mall location deceive you - this restaurant is the real deal. Mark, our waiter, was attentive, knowledgeable and gracious. We were a party of 4 and we were seated immediately. We started off sharing the... More

Don't let the strip mall fool you! Small restaurant but nicely appointed. We were pleasantly surprised at the complexity of the menu. Prior to tasting, we thought it may be one of those restaurants that uses too many ingredients. Not the case. We tried their special of mahi mahi. It was a nice portion and served with a preserved lemon... More

We visited this restaurant based on a friend's suggestion and LOVED it. The wine selection is good and reasonably priced for this area. We had a group of 5 and everyone enjoyed their meal! Service was good - and very helpful when trying to choose. The place is small so plan to arrive early or late.

You would think you'd find this incredible restaurant in NY City, not in a strip mall. Owners Jennifer and Chef Joe have made this place a little piece of Heaven. It's small, but don't let that stop you from treating your palate to a special treat.🍽

Word has caught on and folks are realizing what a gem Urban Kitchen is in Corolla. These folks have put together a combination of special service with great food. Bargain food is not what you'll find here. But, you'll find satisfaction in their city prices for the elegant and delicious choices. The strip is always terrific. I really enjoyed the... More

This is a small restaurant with a big reputation for excellence. It is located near the Harris Titter in Corolla next to the Currituck Club. Go early or you'll need to wait during the in season. We always went at opening and asked to sit at the back booth so we could watch the kitchen magic. Cocktails are "generous pours"... More

A great time was had again at Urban Kitchen. A group of four split and devoured the Octopus appetizer and Gnocchi, we split the local and fresh beet salad and well spiced Sweet Potato soup, and the mains were done perfectly. Fresh Rockfish, a huge thick portion with a vegetable medily sauce - was great, Cooked to order strip steaks... More

We have eaten several times at Urban Kitchen when staying at our beach house in Corolla. The restaurant is a small beach, but modern farmhouse type eatery. The food is awesome - had their pork chop dinner recently and it was delicious!! Several patrons seated near us had recommended it and we were not disappointed! Their menu changes with the... More

Don't let this shopping mall space near Harris Teeter deter you. Urban Kitchen is just what you want, minimalisticly HIP where chef is superb. The space and the offerings are right to the point. You will love the staff and the food, and promise yourself to come back soon. This is a splurge but go ahead and split an appetizer,... More
