    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.

    The creativity in the food pairings and presentation was outstanding. All the food was delicious!! By far the best restaurant at the Grove Park Inn. The atmosphere is quiet and dark. 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.

    We enjoyed a beautiful evening at Vue 1913 including a beautiful dessert to celebrate my father's 99th birthday. We had the stuffed trout which was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. We thought that the prices were very reasonable considering the atmosphere and quality of the food. Wine prices were definitely on the high side, but we found something that was fine.

    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.

    We were received by staff who all were very friendly and gracious. The dinner setting was outstanding with a great view of the trees and mountains. The food was excellent. 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 experience from start to finish was memorable and worth repeating.

    The young ladies acting as Matre d were very friendly. Tim arrived quickly to fill water glasses and then brought bread and periodically ensured everything was to our satisfaction. 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.

    The grand view is sort of obscured, actually, unless you're sitting right up against the windows and there are only two-tops available along the outside wall. Decor is not particularly inspired, a cookie cutter bistro style. Food was good but considering the price, not nearly impressive enough, particularly considering how many great restaurants there are in Asheville. If you want to experience of really appreciating the Grove Park Inn's view of the mountains, I'd eat at Edison (the pub) or the Terrace Cafe instead.

    The wait staff did their best to manage sub par food that was coming out of the kitchen. The produce was a bit mushy, the dish came different than it appeared on the menu. The unrecognizable hair on the plate was less than charming. They took all of my items off of the tab to their credit, but we would never go back. The price far outweighed the quality. The flax bread was however absolutely delicious! Wish we could have given a better review.

    Dined on 7/18/2014
    The five courses are priced at $85/person, which is not unreasonable. We were offered a choice of duck or kobe beef as an entree. What we did not know is that the restaurant would charge an extra $50 for selecting the beef. The server also offered us shaved truffles, but neglected to tell us that it would cost an extra $20/person for them. The wine pairings were an additional $40/person, but the 4 wines were not impressive and the pairings were uninspired. Do they even have a sommelier? If so, s/he did not put in an appearance. The new chef is good and his food is quite lovely, but beware of sneaky extra charges. In my case, I paid $100 more than expected. That leaves a bad taste.

    Though the atmosphere and service are great, the food vs value isn't too great here. Lots of great dining choices downtown and in west Asheville. Not a bad experience if you happen to be staying in the grove park inn (but ambience on terrace is even more breathtaking at sunset) but didn't knock our socks off for the menu pricing. But you don't typically expect great value at a high end resort;)

    The dining room has a limited menu, and the food was just OK. The portions were small. ( I had seared scallops... three of them. ) The food and service did not match the high cost of dining. The server was robotic. The "bread and water guy", as he called himself, was the only light-hearted server in an otherwise sterile staff. I'd recommend saving your money and dine in any of the other GPI restaurants instead.

    My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at the Vue 1913 and had a wonderful evening! I think every table had a breathtaking view of the mountains which was such a plus for us! Our entire culinary experience was truly amazing! The salad was beautifully plated, the steak was excellently prepared, and we topped it all off with creme brulee (my favorite dessert) with a twist! Then our waiter surprised us with a special anniversary chocolate message!! Our service was exceptional and made the entire evening one we will certainly remember!

    My friend and I dined in the Vue. There was a full tasting menu to which we asked if we could just purchase the entrée the waiter said yes and then proceeded to bring us out the full tasting menu. Neither of us likes seafood and there was a great deal of seafood on the menu. When we explained that there much have been a misunderstanding he became sarcastic and rude. I really don't' understand why because the meal we were charged for was $100 a plate. He continued to be sarcastic throughout the whole meal. I left him a $40 tip which I do not feel he deserved but was giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he had a bad day. I would not dine in this restaurant again with this snobby rude waiter.
