As a Holiday Inn restaurant Woodfire is a cut above most budget hotel dining and a good choice if you are staying there and don't want to drive. However, it is definitely not a go to Asheville restaurant for locals. The Brussel sprout skewer appetizer was mushy, not firm and crisp and the NY strip was ok but nothing to rave about. My companion had the burger and that was just ok too. The server, Morgan however was excellent. The bar looked like fun with guests of the hotel mingling. Again, not bad food but not worth driving to. More

We are in Asheville for our 10 year anniversary and had Rhubarb reservations in advance as we found highly recommended in several places. It did not disappoint. We requested a table outside and the weather was perfect and we had “free” music from the street. which was an added bonus. Mongolian BBQ Lamb were incredible and so was the Gnudi. More

We just moved to Asheville and I drive by this place every day. So I chatted with my work mates and they highly recommended it. For the price, it would be great to have full service even if you are eating on the patio instead of ordering at the bar. While it was a little spendy, every thing we had was amazing!! Charcuterie board was insane! Mushroom pizza is a must have The mule cocktail was amazing The beer was on point The server brought out water for our dog, which was nice! 10/10 would done again More

We ate off of the prix fixe menu. The flavor of the food was excellent. The main course greens were a little too salty, and the roasted strip steak was a little tougher to cut (i.e., saw) and chew than I’m used to for that cut at medium rare temperature, but otherwise a nice meal. More

Wine Bar | Asheville, Asheville

Went to the Wine and Oyster for a preprandial snack. Ambiance is industrial chic and could get noisy when the restaurant is full. There was music the evening we were there and it easily drowned out our conversation. Nine varieties of oyster were available from both east and west coasts, but no Gulf oysters, We tried 6 of the nine available. All were very fresh, properly schucked with no shell fragments and served with a mignionette, fresh grated horseradish and cocktail sauce on the side. Wine selection is relatively extensive for a small restaurant and there were several choices that would have paired well with oysters. We chose a Gavi di Gavi that was very good and reasonably priced. A menu item we didn't try was cioppino, but looked interesting enough to ask for a taste of the cioppino broth, which the restaurant accomodated. The broth was delicious and close to what you would find in San Francisco. Definitely going back to try it with a red selection from the wine list. More

American | Asheville, Asheville

We’ve eaten at Early Girl many times for breakfast, but this was our first time for dinner. We were greeted warmly by every member of the staff as we entered and were seated which made us feel very welcome. Once seated, however, it took 5 - 10 minutes before the server came to the table and greeted us and got drink orders. Had the restaurant been full and busy, this might have been understandable, but there were only about 5 tables seated including us. Once the server came, he was friendly and helpful. The only other complaint was that once we ordered, it took a long time to receive our food...again, longer than seemed normal for a slow night with what seemed to be a full staff. The food was good and our guests from out of town seemed pleased. We enjoyed that we could hear each other and not have to fight a loud, noisy place. Food was hot and fresh when served. More

Everything fine at TGI Fridays but they did not have a reservation for us. OpenTable did you actually make it? I had an email confirmation from you but no record of one at the restaurant. Fortunately it didn’t matter as we went early in order to make a concert. But with all the busy restaurants in Asheville on a Saturday night it could have been frustrating. Next time I’ll phone the restaurant if I want to make a reservation. More
