A hidden Gem in the South Slope of downtown Asheville. A busy bar on one side and a quaint, quirky wonderful restaurant on the other. We eat early (6:30 - 7:30) and reservations are easy to come by. But some of the absolute best food in Asheville. Start was roasted cauliflower with Harissa, feta, and a cilantro pesto. Amazing mix of flavors. We both order the Mangrove Snapper, sautéed perfectly - crisp skin and moist inside. Served with summer vegetables - fresh creamed corn, chanterelles (lots of them), confit tomatoes with a snap of sherry vinegar, and green garlic aioli. Service is always knowledgeable and friendly. You must ry this wonderful place! More

whatever you do, don't let the fact that this gem is in a Holiday Inn scare you. The special was a bison bone in ribeye, and it was amazing. The other main courses at our table were excellent as well. Because it is small service was great. I suspect a lot of folks shy away from the Holiday Inn part, and it is a big mistake if you are looking for a memorable meal More

We really enjoyed our visit as the view is spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was good. We filled up on appetizers - the pretzel fondue and fried green tomatoes. While the portion of fondue was small, we loved the beer cheese dip. The fried green tomatoes was a later portion and were tasty. When the staff found out it was our honeymoon, they gave us a complimentary treat! We will definitely be back. More
