    Good vibe in the place, but proteins were overcooked and under seasoned. Wait staff forgot to bring wine we ordered with dinner.

    Took about 7 minutes to be acknowledged at the front desk. Wait staff walking by slowly but ignoring us. Not because it was that busy ...and no one else was waiting near us. It was bordering on rude neglect. We asked two people to help and they said, "soon." No apology. I was embarrassed as I had chosen the place and made a reservation months ago for our anniversary. They never learned of our special day because they were not engaging in the least. No smiles. Nothing. They did fine after that. Our waitress was sweet.

    Service was excellent! Food was really good except for the steak tips which were medium well, not medium rare. The ahi tuna nachos were absolutely superb!

    They seem to be understaffed. We had a reservation on Easter Sunday, and the restaurant was only half full. Our waitress seemed a bit harried but did her best. Was hot inside. Quite a long wait for food, two dishes missing important parts mentioned on the menu, for example eggs Benedict with shrimp and thin sliced ham was served meatless. Good French dip.

    Big Disappointment. The pancakes tasted and felt as if they were made the night before. The "fresh" fruit was mushy and bland - looked like it was prepped the night before. The granola on the yogurt parfait was burnt. I expected a restaurant in downtown Asheville would be on their A-game for Easter brunch. We had much a much better breakfast around the corner at The Med at half the price
