We held off making a return trip to Bone & Broth after Avery poor prior experience. Friends encouraged us to give it another shot. We are so glad that we took their advice! Went for a dinner and had the burger and the bavette. Both were very good. The fries were the super skinny type. Not a favorite because they cool off way before you can possibly eat them and the were too heavily salted- a rampant Asheville problem. The bavette was perfectly cooked and served with the best greens around. The fingerling potatoes were excellent. Service was very friendly and house cocktails were made to perfection. More

The food was fantastic! Our waitress was not very attentive although she was friendly and nice. She took our drink order, returned with drinks while taking food order, and brought the bill long after we were finished. Never checked on us. Never refilled our drinks. The view is AMAZING! The host was wonderful and welcoming. I have three young kids (who were not with us). I would not recommend this place for young children. I am 100% sure my kids would have loved the food, but the atmosphere was not very child friendly - but great for our date night! More
