A word from Table
Husband and Wife team Jacob and Alicia Sessoms have returned to the area from New York City where they trained in the restaurant business. They have created a truly "market-driven seasonal New American" restaurant here in downtown Asheville. With the help of several local artisans, they have created a rustically modern and hip atmosphere in their open, store-front space with bold colors and striking wood and steel contrasts. Jacob has been classically trained in French Pastry and Culinary Arts. He is joined in the open kitchen by another classically trained chef, Matthew Dawes. Alicia will be managing the formal yet comfortable service of the dining room, bar and wine list. Sit down at the mahogany and maple bar or one of the hand-made maple tabletops and watch Jacob and Matt's sagacious yet simple food fill the dining room. With a daily written moderately priced dinner menu and a $26 to $300 "Old-World" heavy wine list all the bases are covered for fine dining style cuisine.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Went to Table for brunch, had been there before for dinner and liked it a lot. They accommodated our Open Table reservation of 7 within ten minutes and even provided us a high top for a baby. Everyone was very nice and attentive. We ordered almost everything on the menu. I liked the French Toast large plate and the Johnny Cakes small plate. I ordered Chicken and Waffles, and the chicken was great, the waffle wasn't really soft/crispy enough, but the meal was good. We made a lot of noise and made a mess, especially with the baby, but everyone was great and we had a perfect brunch. Would recommend for Brunch!"

  • "I was in Asheville by myself and went to Table. The food was outstanding and innovative. The service was also very good and the server was very knowledgeable. I plan to return with my wife in the future."

  • "Table is still the best restaurant in downtown Asheville, with an ever-evolving and always-interesting menu -- tried-and-true classics and innovative new efforts. Excellent locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible, and a clean, spare, and bright decor in which to enjoy one's meal. Jacob, chef-owner, and his wife Alicia could not be more gracious hosts."

  • "We try at get to Table each time we are in Asheville. The food seems always to be impeccable no matter what you order and the way a standard ingredient is prepared is always an unexpectedly delicious surprise. We always try to order as many of the small dishes as possible so we can experience as many examples of Table's expertise as possible. This time we had the bone marrow (again), the quail and the octopus small plates and the monkfish dinner. All were beautifully done. The flour-less chocolate cake is a must."

  • "We have been trying many restaurants in Asheville. Tables menu is a little odd so it. I had an excellent salad with pears & what looked like weeds from my garden. I would have loved a big one for dinner-yum. Hubby said his kale salad was ok. He had trout & mushrooms baked in paper ; he said he would order that again.I had Sweet potato ravioli w something very smokey and julienned vegs w pears. I would say that was the worst ravvioli I have ever eaten. It appeared to be whole wheat pasta, chewy with a tiny amount of filling. I could not get that smoke flavor out of my mouth. They definitely need a better ravioli on the menu. Wine was a nice Sancerre. Dessert was ok. So far, our 5 star restaurants in Asheville are Posana & Cucina 24."

  • "Great service, carefully prepared food and very tasty. Everything had a fresh flair. Very loud for conversations. Wouldn't recommend for large groups, but nice for 1."

  • "Table totally lived up to our high expectations, with one of the better charcuterie boards we've ever had (the 26 month gouda was the best cheese I've ever tasted). The cask-aged old fashioned managed to elevate my favorite drink. My steak on my entree was a little tougher than I'd anticipated since it was sous-vide, but still really delicious. Service was top notch and they clearly put a lot of effort into thoughtfully pacing the meal. Nothing arrived too soon or too late and our server struck the right balance of friendly and professional. We want to try the brunch next time which looks great."

  • "The Sea Bass was awesome. Two of us ordered the entrée and were astounded. The beef dish was unfortunate. Our friend did not want to send it back (tougher than anything this seasoned traveller had ever had) but it would have been disruptive to others at our table. We will return, avoiding the slow cooked beef."

  • "We have been to Table twice in the last few weeks and both times we have seen other chefs/owners of two local restaurants eating there. That certainly speaks well of the quality of food the chefs at Table are presenting to their customers"

  • "Wonderful service for our large group! Gluten Free was a bit of a challenge, but was completely remedied with a local rabbit leg with black olive honey. Food was entertaining and delicious!"

  • "My girlfriend and I escaped away for a weekend in the mountains of Asheville. The culture created and influenced by local, fresh ingredients making there way to the plates in Asheville was no more evident than at The Table. We started things off with two tasty cocktails that excited our taste buds for what was to come. An invigorating Alaskan salmon crudo and an eclectic/creative take on an arugula and pear salad got the party started. Two precisely prepared fish entree's paired with two glasses of wine, recommended by the server, left us quaintly fulfilled and happy walking out the door. Party complete! The Table has solidified its print on my tongue as it is anxiously waiting it's next encounter!"

  • "We chose Table as our first dinner together as newly weds and it was outstanding. Our server was attentive yet still able to give us the space we wanted to celebrate. He showed an impressive knowledge of the menu and each dish's ingredients. Everything we tried was delicious. We highly recommend Table and will definitely be back during our next visit to Asheville."

  • "We had read some iffy reviews, but our experience was terrific. We had 8 very different dishes, and everyone was thrilled. Very imaginative. Unusual ingredients. Fairly priced, if you ask me (110 plus tip for two, including nice wine). Served at proper temperature. Great server. Good pacing. Not too salty, as some have said. So, we were really happy."

  • "I was visiting Asheville and tried Table for dinner on a Saturday night and had to come back for brunch the following day. The food, service, and atmosphere are all top notch. It was especially nice to sit at the chef’s table and watch the owner and his staff craft their amazing dishes and cocktails. These people really know what they are doing! Can’t wait to visit again!"

  • "Had an amazing dining experience. To begin with the duck confit pate was out of this world. The Octopus and pork belly was spectacular, but nothing was more exciting than the fish served with beets... and a beet creme anglaise- WHAT?! Too good to describe. Getting to meet the chef and ask him about the preparation of the food at the conclusion of dinner was a real treat too. If you are feeling adventurous and want to eat some amazing food, pay a visit to Table"

  • "We had heard this restaurant was good but it was disapointing, especially the food, mostly quite bland and considering the cost, definately not worth the money. Rather spoilt the birthday celebration."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I'm always suprised at how good the food is at Table. I shouldn't be since I've eaten there penty of times. The menu is always changing so you can experience the chef's creative take on what is fresh and local. I consider one of the best restaurants in Asheville."

  • "Table is a great high end meal with fresh creative dishes and great atmosphere"

  • "The restaurant is well located in the heart of "foodie-ville," aka downtown Asheville. Decor is clean, sophisticated with good light exposure from the street. Our group included 2 vegetarians, who were very pleased withe the local, available choices. The Triggerfish and scallops were both good but not memorable. Hamburger consumers were pleased with the burgers and even more complimentary about the fries!! Our waiter was attentive and informative, answering our questions. He came across a bit aloof, however. We will return when late spring/summer veggies are available."

  • "Dinner last Saturday night Ordered a certain brand vodka martini and was given another without any explanation. No cool. Ordered veal scallopini and was served a deep fried german veal. Out of bone marrow. Considering all the alternatives I try some place else"

  • "Food is great. Pork chop and belly was one of the best I have ever had"

  • "Took my lady friend here on Valentines Day. There was a romantic atmosphere, the server was excellent and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was prepared well and very tasteful. There was not an open table in the building. Definitely one of the more fancy restaurants in Asheville."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was good, a little pricey for what was offered. The place was crowded, hardly any room to enjoy yourself and relax. If I wasn't a slim guy I couldn't have made it to our table. If the prices were lower and they had more space I would recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "My husband and I are always looking for restaurants with good food. Having relocated here from NYC we are food snobs. We would say this was definitely a NYC quality restaurant! We've been to several in Asheville. Many of them were very good. However, this was in our opinion the best. The food, and the service, two criteria we use to judge were excellent. We will definitely eat there again."

  • "We've been to Table before and it's always been good. This time went for Sunday brunch. Some creative menu items, but after bacon wrapped date appetizer (which were very tasty) settled for traditional bacon and eggs. Bacon was very crispy, so my wife was happy. To me, however, it seemed bacon had been prepared hours ahead of time. All else was good."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "We wanted to enjoy this meal, it just didn't work. Our server wasn't very warm and we felt she only said what we wanted to hear. My husband asked if the duck livers were close to chicken livers and she said yes. He thought they were very different in texture as well as taste. Didn't eat but two. She didn't see to bothered. The crispy pork belly was not crispy. The ravioli I ordered didn't have much of a truffle flavor and was bland. My salad was very tasty! Bread was good, butter could have had a pinch of salt. The bus girl was very sweet. Oh, and I wrote in the notes it was his birthday and they made no comment about it."

  • "We went there for Restaurant Week with another couple. We had an excellent Server, but the wine list was expensive and unimaginable. Food was average at best and portions were small."

  • "Always a pleasure to dine at Table. Every dish an interesting combination of fresh, often in-house-made, ingredients put together in creative ways to delight the palate."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Great menu, fantastic preparation, and flavors. Definitely fancy foody stuff. Nice atmosphere, not too loud, definitely new chic styling. Service was good, but not energetic or inspiring to define some great choices or better describe meals or pairings. We would have spent more actually with more interaction."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Two courses, $15. Delicate cream soup, mushroom and greens risotto. Table is one of AVL's finest restaurants, consistently innovative and high-quality dishes. A bit noisy at any time, the price to be paid for an excellent meal there. I shall return."

  • "Let me start by saying that the food was absolutely delicious. We were excited to dine at Table before seeing a play at 7:30 a few blocks away. We planned accordingly and made reservations at 5:30 to leave ourselves plenty of time to dine without being late for our other plans (reservations were at 5:30pm). We ordered our appetizers and entrees ~6PM and were nearly panicked when we still didn't have our entrees at 7pm. We ended up having to pay for our meal before it came so we could quickly eat and exit in order to make the play. We both wish we could have spent more time enjoying the meal instead of eating it in under 10 mins and thought about losing money on our play tickets to stay longer to enjoy the meal, however, we chose to leave."
