    Wonderful view. The restaurant was not crowded based on the total occupancy of the hotel. All the meals were very good but they had difficulty satisfying the vegan/gluten free requirement of one of the diners. They did go over and above by providing that diner with an outstanding salad and gluten free rolls which made up for the main entrée.

    The food was okay. We had the corn and crab bisque. It didn't have a lot of flavor. We also had the filets. They were well-cooked and the mushroom sure was excellent. The potato side dish have an overpowering amount go garlic. The service was very good. All in all, it was a good meal but nothing that we couldn't have easily replicated at home and not in keeping, overall, with what you would expect at the Grove Park Inn. We wouldn't go back to this restaurant--particularly not for the prices they charge.

    I was glad to see the changes to this restaurant- more lively, less stuffy. more accessible. Our very poslished waitress told us the specials. One was surf and turf: lobster tail and filet mingon with shaved truffes. I planned to share it with my niece. I love lobster (Red Lobster's is as good as any) and order it frequently. THis lobster tail was actually mushy and mealy- obviously frozen. Awful. And true, I should have asked the price of the entree, and the server should have told us the price. even without asking THe bill came and I discovered the entree was $95!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Horrible. Never again.

    The setting was elegant at the Grove Park Inn. When we arrived at Vue, the scenery through the windows caught our attention. It was magnificent. There was a larger party celebrating a birthdat near our table, which made the noise level too much. But, the service was professional, the food was tasty, the wine selection was vast, and the ambience was fine. I felt that the meal portions should be a little larger. The prices were a little high. But, all in all, a great place for a romantic getaway or special occasion.

    Situated at the end of a very long hall at the Omni Grove Park Inn, Vue 1913 has spectacular views, top-notch service, and delicious food! My husband had the lamb tenderloin; I had the lobster pasta. Both were beautifully presented and delightful to taste. We were served by three very attentive waitpersons, and the executive chef came to our table to welcome and thank us for coming to Vue 1913. We were the first diners to arrive so for a time we had a private dining room, with an amazing view. Once others arrived, it still felt like a private dining room, as the tables are that far apart and the other diners that far away from us. It was a lovely evening.

    We wanted to add a special evening dining experience to our overnight stay at the Grove Park Inn. We had looked over the restaurant description before we made our reservations - which the hotel will make for you when you register for a stay. The restaurant atmosphere was very nice, scenic view of the mountains which was enhanced for us by a great sunset. Wonderful staff, they really set the tone for your dining evening. The food was good, high quality, small portions. But, expensive, not what I would expect to pay for this food. But, overall, the evening was great and was in keeping with our stay.

    Overpriced. Markup on below average wine was absurd. A bottle of Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma, not Napa) which you can get at Costco for $12.99 was priced at $59. My girlfriend's stuffed trout was good. My lamb had no flavor. Beet salad was small and very unremarkable. Pretending to be an upscale restaurant with amateurs in the kitchen.

    The Vue 1913 restaurant was wonderful with great food with unusual combination of flavors. The menu was very creative although the portions were small. The view of the mountains was great although you would be better to go to one of the outdoor restaurants at the Grove Park if it is a nice night. We ate at three restaurants at the Grove Park and the Vue had the best food.

    We had a very special occasion to celebrate and wanted to have a nice evening. Vue 1913 far exceeded what we were looking for. The food and wine selection was fantastic. The NY Strip Frites and Lobster Pasta were incredible. The table we sat at had amazing views. The dining room was very comfortable and romantic. The staff were truly incredible as well. They were very receptive to the fact that we wanted good service but wanted to be left to ourselves as well. Great job by all! We are already talking about taking another vacation to Asheville and staying at Omni on our next trip and enjoying another romantic night at the Vue 1913!

    Our server was very nice and knowledgable. However, the service was slow. We had a long wait between appetizer and the entree which made our entrees more on the just warm side. They were very good, but would have been much better had they not been sitting in the kitchen. Otherwise, it was good.

It is not a party spot, more of a focus on the food and service. From the hostess to the server everything was well thought out and beautifully presented.

    this is a lovely place to have a quiet and romantic dinner. when you make your reservation ask for a table with a view. the views are incredible. if you are not staring at the person in front of you then the mountains are a great second choice. the menu is small but might. there are solid choices for everyone. this is not a place to look for large servings. this is foodie eating. the plates are small but might on taste and interest.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    The meal was disappointing for the price we paid. The oysters tasted gritty. The potatoes were undercooked and we upgraded to the Kobe filet cooked medium which was cooked medium well and was not very impressive for a $100 steak. I have never ordered Kobe filet before so I can’t compare to anything but I have eaten at nice steak houses such as Fleming an Ruth’s Chris and this was the most disappointing filet eaten compared to other restaurants. I didn’t plan on ordering, the server upsold it to me explaining it would the best filet ever, cutting into it like butter she explained. I did not complain at the restaurant. We were celebrating my 11 year anniversary and it just wasn’t worth getting worked up about it.

The beef filet was some of the best we've ever eaten anywhere. The service was impeccable and helpful and prompt. The rose corsage for the Mrsl and the drinks for toasting, all complimentary, were a gracious touch for our 60th wedding anniversary.

The real prize was Ralph Lownow, our waiter. A great sense of humor along with a very detailed understanding of how various dishes are prepared answered all of our questions. We learned he is a Sommelier and his recommendation went well with our meals. The food was excellent. It was a wonderful experience

    Had a great time. View was excellent and service was great. Only comment on the service was the food runners had no idea what they were serving. We asked several times what was being served and she said I don't know but it doesn't look like something I would eat. Not the best thing to say to someone eating a meal. We got a good laugh and ate. BTW it was good. We chose the chefs menu to try the different items and got Kobe beef. We also ordered 3 alcoholic drinks and a coke. Total bill with tip $400.00. We knew it before we ordered so no real harm but just a little surprised on the price. BTW Kobe beef is not as tasty as good a rib-eye. Glad we tried it though. Overall great experience.
