American | Asheville, Asheville

This pleasant dinner surprise was recommended to us by a friend who stays in the host hotel frequently. We started with a delicious charcuterie plate, accented nicely with a good mustard and whipped goat cheese - that and a couple of perfect dirty gin martinis. After that, we enjoyed a couple of well-portioned and tasty salads (Rocket and Caesar) along withwith some interesting, fresh baked onion rolls. At this point, we were starting to wonder whether we had perhaps made a mistake by ordering entrees... would we be too full to enjoy the movie that night? We needn't have worried... both of us finished every bite of our perfectly cooked and nicely savory pork tenderloins... It's rare for me to be impressed by hotel-hosted restaurants, but this gem (Roux) will be a regular for me and my sweetie. More

Everything fine at TGI Fridays but they did not have a reservation for us. OpenTable did you actually make it? I had an email confirmation from you but no record of one at the restaurant. Fortunately it didn’t matter as we went early in order to make a concert. But with all the busy restaurants in Asheville on a Saturday night it could have been frustrating. Next time I’ll phone the restaurant if I want to make a reservation. More
