Food was very tasty and a good variety. The only negative was - we arrived at 5:00 and the restaurant opened for dinner at 4:00. The food didn't seem as "fresh" as it could have been. Seemed like it had been sitting out since before they opened. Some hot items were warm at best. More

Really a nice experience. After reading reviews in which others stated that improvement had occurred over the past six months, we decided to try The Overlook for an anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed and are happy to find an upscale restaurant that is within a few miles of home. Food was imaginative and prepared in an excellent manner. Chef has several interesting sounding features on the daily menu. Ignore the menu on their web site, as it no longer reflects the current offerings. Open table confirmed reservation, then sent a notice of cancellation that the restaurant had cancelled our reservation. A call to the restaurant was required to resolve the problem. Phone number shown on web site and Open Table is incorrect. Service was great, our server had only our table and two others on the night we were there. We highly recommend the Overlook to anyone seeking great food and service in a quiet scenic atmosphere. Getting to the location, which is in a Golf Course Clubhouse requires entering through a staffed security gate and driving approximately one and one half miles. It is worth the effort and will be found to be another hidden gem! More

My wife and I found this place during a weekend getaway to Asheville - we both decided we were in the mood for Mexican that night.

Hemingway’s Cuba represents more than a restaurant. It’s a culmination of a lifetime goal to share an authentic Cuban restaurant experience with the people of Asheville. Havana native and Founder of Hemingway’s Cuba, Tony Fraga, grew up enjoying exquisite meals with his father at La Floridita in Havana. The restaurant was not only known to be a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, it earned the honor of serving “The Best Daiquiri in the World,” according to Hemingway himself.More

We have loved the food truck Salt and Smoke that started this brick and mortar restaurant. All our food was excellent in preparation and taste. Plating is smaller, but very high quality and should be expected of this style restaurant. Prices are reflective of the quality also. I think they did a great job of also incorporating food textures in the platings, particular example is the langoustine and grits. The poached smelt appetizer is really great, but these little fish do need to be filleted and is worth the effort, light and sweet little fresh water fish. Recommend and will be back for more. More
