Contemporary American | Asheville, Asheville

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

The night started with us being sat outside, Even though we asked for a booth. Then the hostess told us we couldn't be seated inside, it was full. Then we told the server what she had said and we were immediately moved to a booth inside, go figure. Then we were given a free appetizer (southern nachos) to make up for it. So we ordered... and when our chicken, (mine fried, his roasted) his came out tasting like. Straight up salt lick. Over all, We don't plan on going back. More

Mexican | Asheville, Asheville

The server was excellent; he was attentive and personable. Our boys loved the ribs! The only caveat to our dining experience is that the server did not ask if I wanted an individual portion of the ribeye fajitas and thus assumed I wanted the large portion and charged me $35 instead of the $19. We didn’t realize this until we already paid. Since we were traveling and couldn’t take the leftovers, I ended up giving half of the steak to my son’s roommate at his school! More
