Fine food, wine and drinks, delivered with uncommon hospitality.

A broad base of classic French Culinary Technique is the cornerstone for New American Cuisine, which is a true melting pot of cultures, ingredients, and techniques. We love the idea of applying modern day sensibilities to traditional recipes. Use great ingredients and treat them with respect for where they are from, how they are handled and who they are going to.

For parties of 7 or more, a credit card is required to hold the table. If your party size decreases within 6 hours of the reservation time, we charge $10 per person that doesn't show up, with a maximum fee of $100. If the party size increases within that window, we'll do our best to make accommodations. In some cases, parties may be seated at adjacent tables, but we always confer with you in that case.

Our Corkage Fee is $20/bottle and our Outside Food Fee is $4/person

This was our first visit to Postero and we will be back. I want to first say that our waiter, Dimitri, was great...he knew the menu, made reliable suggestions for main course and dessert, didn't rush us, and was very pleasant in all aspects. We began with ceviche, and we highly recommend. My wife had the duck, I had the pork chop...both were excellent and served 'hot'. Only suggestions are, their draught beers are a bit small, and the lighting for dinner could be turned down a bit for better atmosphere...besides that it was a great evening.
Ask for Dimitri...he's an excellent waiter.

The steak was the cheapest cut of beef. Tender but without flavor. Why serve that when there are better cuts of beef with flavor.

Our server, Cat, was excellent with recommendations and answering questions about the food. She was well informed and enthusiastic about the restaurant. We were there for lunch. I had the house salad with shrimp and my husband had the Rueben and we each had a glass of wine. The house salad had endive, blue cheese, walnuts and a variety of other delicious elements pulled together with a well-composed dressing. I tasted my husband's sandwich--excellent as were the house-made chips. The old vine Zinfandel we ordered was very good. We are visiting this area for a week and already have reservations made for dinner. Highly recommend...reservations required.

We chose Postero to celebrate our anniversary. We had moved away from Hendersonville over two years ago and have really missed Postero. We took seats at the bar which is our favorite. Taylor made us two great drinks to start the evening. We shared the potato bisque…delicious! We then split the heirloom tomato and burrata salad. Everything on the salad was perfect. Wish I could buy tomatoes that good. For the main course my wife had the monkfish. This is probably her favorite fish,but really difficult to find in the south. The preparation and presentation were perfect. So many great flavors mixed together. I had the pork chop. Everything about that dish hit the mark. Chef Justin keeps coming up with different brines to add great flavor to the meat. We were then presented with a piece of pumpkin cheesecake compliments of the chef to end our celebration. Neither one of us had room for the dessert,but it seemed to disappear. An absolutely perfect evening…need to make the trek more often.

Great Chicken and Fish entrees. We all loved our food and the service was good. This was our second time visiting this restaurant. The restaurant is noisy because of the open kitchen but we like that.

It is a beautiful place. The hostess kept everyone waiting as she took one call after another.
The staff are not dressed professionally for a high priced restaurant.
The menu is limited and my pork chop was dry (over cooked).
I know times are tough with staffing but they need to do better.
The whole staff was flat, no energy

We had a reservation and were immediately seated upstairs by a window. Service was excellent. Small but ample and interesting menu. Our meals were excellent. Nice wine selection. Casual but refined atmosphere. It was colder than we expected outside, so we didn’t change into our dressy clothes and worried about wearing jeans, we were relieved to see both. The menu, service and food quality rival any fancy special occasion restaurant.

This was our 4th visit to this restaurant. Loved every experience fully until this one. I am a huge fan of jalapeño margaritas so when I saw the pomegranate jalapeño on the menu I ordered it. I ordered one and my sister in law ordered one. We both took a sip and the heat was so intense you couldn’t possibly get any flavor from the drink. Drink was loaded with jalapeño slices, seeds and all. Our lips and tongue were numb for quite a while after that. Husband took a taste and completely agreed the balance was way off. Sister in law returned hers and I tried to water mine down to a drinkable level. So disappointed. I felt that the waitresses demeanor changed when we returned the one drink. Which was a disappointment. Those two pieces of the meal, of course at the beginning of the meal, really put a dark shadow on the experience. My husband and his sister got the chicken, which they loved. I got the cacio e Pepe, another big favorite of mine. I was excited because in the summer I had their carbonara and loved that. Well, cacio e pepe it was not. It was good but came with a basil walnut pesto sauce thus changing the dish entirely. Again it was good, but in my opinion, not cacio e Pepe. Probably will come back to see if we just hit a bad night. Hasn’t disappointed in the past so hopeful.

Food and service were excellent. Loved the steak dish. Noise level very high. We were celebrating our anniversary at table for 2 situated between two tables of 6. Could not hear each other over the other tables. I suspect it is quieter on the second floor balcony but steps are an issue for my wife.

We live in the area and had never tried Postero. It was our anniversary so I made a reservation. What a treat! We were greeted warmly and congratulated on our anniversary. We were seated upstairs with a window view of Main Street. Our waiter, Zach, wished us a Happy Anniversary and was warm, engaging and very attentive. The food was top notch. We had the Shrimp Ceviche, Autumn Squash, Duck Breast and Dark Chocolate Pot de Crème. It's hard to say what was best. I think I enjoyed the tempura Squash dish best and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the dessert. Our cocktails were delicious (as was the wine). The staff even gave us an Anniversary card. Could not have asked for a better 21st Anniversary!!

Postero is reliably good - the food, service, general atmosphere, and prices are moderate. This restaurant features "big-city good" at "mid-size city moderate" prices and is as good at lunch as they are at dinner. I'd recommend a dish but we've tried pretty much everything on the menu over the last couple of years from appetizers to main plates... and they've never missed!

The only issue we had this time (October 12, 2021) is that a wine mentioned as a "special" by the waitress was not discounted at all... at $44.00 per bottle list price and charged price. We couldn't see what the "special" was in this case.

Other than that, Postero was lovely and we'll be back.

Had a fantastic anniversary dinner at Postero! We were seated immediately in the romantic loft area. Our server, Kat, was quick to take our drink order and make recommendations. She was funny and kind and attentive throughout the night, and helped make the night special. The drinks were well balanced and tasty. The food was modern and up-scale without being stuffy. Everything was well seasoned and tasted incredible. Overall had a wonderful and delicious experience, and will definitely return!

Everything was absolutely great. Heather was our server…she was fantastic. We were undecided about which dessert…she broke the tie and recommended the apple tart which capped off a wonderful evening. These folks are consistent - comforting food in a wonderful environment. We’ll be back within the month!

This was the second time that I have dined at Postero, and it was every bit as good as I remembered. The food is very well-prepared, fresh, and uses seasonal ingredients. The staff are all great: welcoming, efficient, and friendly. If I lived in Hendersonville, I’d go there all the time!

I never order chicken since fix it all the time at home, but I decided to get the brick chicken. It was delicious and tender. The corn succotash was a perfect complement to it. Both of us had the summer salad. The candied walnuts in the salad were great. My husband had the shrimp scampi that he said was equally delicious.
