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

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

We heard that Urban Kitchen was a great restaurant, so we made sure we ate there one night. The food was prepared with unique spices, etc., and the service was excellent. It was a refreshing change of venue, and we will definitely eat at Urban Kitchen again!

We returned to the OBX and were excited to once again have dinner at a favorite dining destination - and by far - the best in Corolla. The chef, owner, and friendly and knowledgeable wait staff offered a warm greeting. The menu has been tweaked since last season. My husband loved the bucantini pasta with fennel sausage, broccolini, preserved lemon... More

My husband and I make a point to visit Urban Kitchen every time we are in Corolla, which is about twice a year because the food is that good! A small eatery located near the Harris Teeter and the Currituck Club, the chefs expertly serve up seasonal, local produce and seafood with delicious flavor and beautiful execution. If you are...

Dinner here and we were not disappointed. The halibut was outstanding and my husband's rib eye just as good. Place is a storefront and quite small, They do not take reservations.Bar tender will serve you cocktails if you have to wait outside for a table. Tues, We'd, Thurs best night to go to miss the wait.

We are repeat visitors to Urban Kitchen. The OBX is full of family-style restaurants that prepare adequate grazing for most people, foodies though, can be a little frustrated. Urban Kitchen is an oasis for the foodie set. This place is very, very, very small and does not take reservations, so prepare either to arrive early or wait for a table.... More
