Hakurei Turnip / Turnip Green Pesto
We ate here for mother's day. It wasn't the normal a la carte menu. It was a prix fixe menu with lots of fancy foods and several courses.
There were things I wouldn't have normally chosen off a menu but was happy to try them and overall, it was a great experience. If you want a sophisticated meal, this is your place.
If you like fresh vegetables and subtlety wonderful high end Italian this is the best place in Asheville and frankly maybe on the east coast.
I’d personally rank it with French Laundry but at a fraction of the price.
Every detail of the food has been carefully thought out but not by a technician, by an artist.
Not to be missed.
Beautiful display of unique and delicious foods! We had a wonderful time and were honored to have partaken in such a wonderfully unique experience.
The meal we had here was truly extraordinary. We were served five courses. This seemed daunting when we read about it, but each course was appropriately small. The snacks, appetizers and desserts were the best part of the meal. On the day we went, the snacks included a dish made of shiitake mushrooms and nettles. This might be the best one-bite dish I've ever eaten. The staff was informed, attentive and warm. At $65 for food alone, this is not an inexpensive meal. But if you want an exceptional dining experience and can afford it, go.
What a great experience. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was amazing! Highly recommend!
Great Food and phenomenal drinks. The bartender was our server and he made our anniversary awesome. Definitely will be returning next time I’m in Asheville.
Outstanding, fantastic and downright delicious! Becky took amazing care of us. She knows the food and wine list like the back of her hand. She amazes me with her knowledge. And then there is Chef Brian who continues to wow us each time we visit. Love Cucina 24!
Cuchina 24 is a must stop for us when we are in the Asheville. We normally have order off of the menu but they are only offering fixed meals due to COVID. It was excellent. They served several courses that I really enjoyed but were items I never would have ordered. I recommend C24 to all of my friends and coworkers spending any days in Asheville.
Innovative and well prepared food. Five courses with great variety of flavors and textures. Attentive professional service.
Amazing meal!!! Superb service; quiet and serene setting. Enjoyed a five course shared plate meal, and every course was fantastic. Celebrated our 30th anniversary there and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Excellent all around!!!
You are #1 on our special night out list. Thank you for many inventive, delicious meals.
P.S. Our server seemed inexperienced compared to others in the past. Just give her time!
Just weird food. My husband could barely eat any of it. Would not recommend.
great service and knowledgable staff explaining the excellent foods
I was so impressed by Cucina 24! It was a 6 course pre-fixe and offered so much variety. There was such attention to detail, from the starters to the salad and vegetables to the pasta and the fish. Dessert was excellent as well. The service was impeccable and each dish was explained to us in detail. They also really paid attention to our food restrictions (1 person was gluten-free, another was a pescatarian) and it really made us feel special. I would go back here again if I lived in the Asheville area, but I will definitely recommend it to anyone visiting.
A truly memorable dining experience. The six courses were beautifully prepared and delicious. We added the wine pairing and really enjoyed the selections. Service was impeccable. Cucina 24 was a highlight of our Asheville visit.
My husband and I are big fans of tasting menus. I say that so readers know we have a solid base for comparison. This meal was among the best we have had in years! And it was priced at an incredibly reasonable $60 for five courses! The first course consisted of various small bits of appetizers, second were three “salads” constructed with fresh and local ingredients, third was gnocchi in brown butter served with fried soft shell crab pieces. (The contrast between the pillow soft gnocchi and the crunchy crab was fantastic!) Fourth course we had our choice of either mackerel or beef cheeks and for dessert, there was panna cotta topped with balsamic sorbet.
It has been our recent experience (last few years) with tasting menus that there may be one or two fantastic courses, but seldom have we enjoyed a meal when EVERY.SINGLE.COURSE was a home run. This restaurant scored on every course.
If you live in Asheville, lucky you—go to this restaurant. If you are visiting, like we were, be sure to make your reservations and enjoy. Service was superlative, timing excellent and we will be sure to return if ever in the area again.
Overall this was a lovely dinner with lots of tastes. I like the tasting menu concepts and wish that more restaurants had it.
We went for dinner and its only a fixed menu for dining in at the moment. I’m not allowed to eat gluten which is super annoying. They were so accommodating and amazing - made every dish, even pasta, gluten free. Was really kind and unexpected, and I appreciate it so much. Food and service was amazing.
A little pricy but really worth it. Very creative food, excellent service and interesting wines.
The 5 course meal was great - and was able to modify to our dietary needs.
I enjoyed my meal with 3 other people. The tasting course was excellent. I loved the salad course. The vegetables were very fresh, as if they were just picked from a garden. The serving sizes were appropriate. For the protein course, my pork chop was tender and tasty. I had a taste of my wife's monkfish which I thought was too acidic but she thought it was fine. The restaurant was very strict on Covid precautions which is very good. Our waiter was helpful and very knowledgable. We will dine here again when we visit Asheville.
This is one of our favorite restaurants, and is always great. But this visit was outstanding. Maybe the best meal we have had here over the past 7 or so years.
Excellent service! Fixed course dinner was perfect.
Really amazing - the food was perfect and the wine pairings were spot on!
We had an amazing meal. 5 course with wine paring. Excellent food and wine and with great covid rules and seating. Much better than many of the other places we ate while in Asheville.
Wonderful service, amazing food and wine pairing. I cannot wait to return!
We had an amazing experience! Delicious food and wine pairing was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely put this on our list of favorites when we are back in the area.
Dinner was amazing. The small plate appetizers, served family style, were plentiful and all very uniquely delicious. It was hard to pick a favorite. Both the beef and trout entrees were outstanding. And, the dessert was simply amazing.
From beginning to end, the experience was excellent! The food was all delicious, the service was wonderful, and it was a great value for the price. We’ll definitely return when we’re in town next tome!
Restaurant was great. Did the tasting menu (all that was offered that evening) and it was excellent. Were training some new people so service was a little spotty but I would definitely go back and recommend to others.
We spent the evening celebrating a big birthday and being totally spoiled by the chef and wait staff while enjoying a 5 course tasting menu! Unbelievable. Everything was so fresh, so surprising, so fun! Highly recommend!
I would not recommend to anyone. The manager was extremely rude. Clearly, given the role as a "restaurant manager" has given her some type of power trip so that she can feel relevant in her unsuccessful life.
Can't say enough positive things! Interesting, unique and beautifully prepared food, stellar service: friendly & open but not intrusive. We felt safe (and appreciated the staff taking such good care re: masking, keeping folks attentive to their masks, arranging tables for a sense of maximum security - all without diminishing the ambiance. If you're looking for exceptional quality, and a unique and relaxed dining experience, Cucina 24, Si Si!
Food was superb, wine pairing was delicious, server Matt was the best :)
Everything was fantastic! Very accommodating with our reservation that went from 2 to 4 and our time of arrival switched multiple times. The food was out of this world. The wine pairing is the way to go here! Ended up taking a bottle to go!
The food and service were excellent. The staff was knowledgable and friendly.
Our five-course dinner experience at Cucina 24 was perfect in every way! I cannot think of a better dinner in recent years! We will be back!
The food was absolutely delicious. It has been a while since our tastebuds got excited as they did and we’d like to thank you for that experience. We decided to celebrate our anniversary at your restaurant. We’re so happy we did and we’ll be back.
Wonderful meal! My sister has a dairy allergy and they were so accommodating!
We loved everything. Thank you for a delicious dinner.
