We visited Asheville for Biltmore at Christmas and desired an Italian meal prior to our ticket time. Chiesa seemed to fit the bill and was not too far from where we were staying, the Albemarle Inn (recommended). Chiesa has wonderful housemade pasta. I ordered the Caesar salad (excellent dressing) and pasta with Italian sausages -- delicious yet slightly spicy red sauce. My wife ordered the beet salad and Mediterrean pasta dish (wonderful mussels, scallops, etc) -- both pronounced as "wonderful." Our server was attentive, explained all specials and made sure we received our food in time so that we could comfortably make our Biltmore ticket time. A testament to this place is that it was packed on a Monday night. It is a comfortable, warm inviting place -- one would expect a former church to be just that! More

We are from the SF Bay Area and often dine out at the best restaurants in Northern CA. This place could compete with any of them. We rarely order beef out because our own grass fed can’t be topped, but we took a chance and shared the Cotes de Boeuf and it was truly stellar; cooked to perfection and as flavorful as the best. The creamed spinach was delightful and tasty. The braised radicchio was loved by one of us. The dessert Madeleines were just right and the coffee also as good as any we get. The service was helpful, friendly, attentive, and the ambience interesting and warm. The Cocktails were creative and wine was well priced. We highly recommend this place! More

We spent two nights at the Grove Park Inn and looked for top restaurants in the Asheville area. The Glass Onion was worth the drive to Weaverville. Very good Italian menu plus other choices. The gnocchi was superb, my wife's choice was a little salty, but that was due to the cheeses. We were happy with the meals. Monday night was slow, so a quiet time with conversation with the wait staff. A pleasant evening. 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

We have dined here many times - from hamburgers to grilled octopus - the food is excellently prepared and beautifully presented. We have not had a bad meal. The wait staff is intelligent and engaging. It is an old building and a bit dark, and some of the furniture goes from shabby chic to just rickety. But on nice nights - they have a lovely side patio. In a town of good restaurants you should try this one. More

Great place for some down south comfort food. A bit on the heavier side but it will leave you happy and full! You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu and the complimentary house biscuits that come with house jam + honey are a great kick off each visit. I recommend hanging on to at least a half of the biscuit and finishing it off as dessert! More

This location has gone through some pretty good restaurants and Bone & Broth is no different. The food was on point, both in quality and presentation. The service was split. As a service industry veteran, I totally understand having your section triple sat. First round of drinks took a while, but other than that it was good. Single issue is the random TV on the wall of an otherwise well appointed dining area. I’m all for sports; the presence was odd and out of place. Not a big deal though. I highly recommend this place.

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.
