American
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 24 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'll always confer with you in that case.

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

I can not appreciate enough for the service and food I had. It's a jewel of Hendersonville.

We love Postero! The building is a beautiful, historic bank which is bright and open. The summer seasonal starter of heirloom tomatoes, burrata cheese and lonza is a perfect combination. An Orange-Juniper Vinaigrette enhances the fresh berries, Gorgonzola cheese, and mixed lettuces of the Bistro Salad. We have tried the scallops, shrimp scampi, steak, and evening specials, and they have all been creative and delicious. The strawberry shortcake with the light lemon curd mousse is a perfect ending to a wonderful dinner. Service has always been excellent! The menu changes with seasonal ingredients which makes it quite interesting.

We went on short notice for our anniversary. The staff had a signed card, which was really nice. The food was great and the staff was very friendly. Samantha had the perfect blend of service and giving us space.

We had requested a quiet table for our anniversary on our reservation. We were given a hightop next to the bar and told the music was loud everywhere. It was basically take it or leave it. I showed the hostess our request and she said there was nothing she could do about it. I do believe that there were quiet tables but they were full or not offered.

Our waitress, Taylor, was excellent. When she asked at the end of the meal I told her of our request and disappointment. She brought over an anniversary card signed by the staff. We did not linger over coffee and dessert as planned due to the noise and left very disappointed.

In retrospect we should have left. There are many, many great Asheville restaurants with ambiance. I would not recommend this restaurant for a special occasion and wish that they had contacted me if they could not provide for the request and given me another option.

We love Postero and it's our favorite restaurant in lovely Hendersonville - by far! The menu is straightforward "southern comfort" food and the combinations are unique and tasty. We always have a wonderful time there.

This was our second visit and first dinner. The food was again spectacular. Fresh, creative. Just the right amount of unusualness without getting carried away and carrying away the flavors. Love the place.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. So, this lower rating is only for the particular dish that we had. This is the second time that we have tried Chicken Fried Steak on Wednesday night comfort food night. I grew up on this dish, so I do have high expectations, but neither of us have been satisfied with the dish. The meat is tough.....

Took my brother and sister in law for lunch during their first visit to Hendersonville. They loved everything about the place. The food was excellent as always, the service was prompt and friendly, and the ambiance was delightful. We are regulars and our visit met all my expectations.

Food was delicious and well presented, however, menu was somewhat limited. I did not appreciate the fact that the special of the day was a hamburger! Quite honestly, if I wanted a hamburger I would not decide to go to Postero’s.
Ambience was hip. We were seated upstairs, which gave us a good view.
The food was excellent as was the service. I thought the menu was somewhat limited, with one steak, one pork, one chicken and a couple of seafood entrees (excluding the hamburger). I would have preferred a few more choices.
Overall, we enjoyed our special occasion dinner. I can’t say that I was wowed, just satisfied.

Upon the advice of brunch tablemates at St Paul's, we went on a Tuesday night at what we were told was the best restaurant in Hendersonville. Also Tues. is the only night they serve their famous hamburger on the dinner menu. OMG- we are now going back there for lunch today. Don't even think of letting a ketchup bottle near this burger!

Dinner tonight at a delightful find, Postero, in Hendersonville outside of Asheville - we’ll worth the trip. Discovered a few new libations including two that blended beautifully with the flowers on the table - Noble Billage cherry tart hard cider - easily the best beer I’ve ever had with a dinner. ). A grand meal, cool space and a waitress Deidre, who was spot-on with the recommendations, including the dessert that she pronounced “everything on that plate makes me happy. Heirloom tomatoes with pistachio burata that was one of the prettiest and delicious appetizers! shrimp scampi where shrimp was cooked perfectly. And grilled scallops with the perfect carmelized grill. For dessert -as Deidre suggested, the roasted banana icebox pie that included a peanut butter mousse, dark chocolate sauce and a salted pretzel crumble. Everything on that plate made us happy too. A must-eat

Postero never disappoints. Outstanding, local, creative food priced reasonably. Service is just right - not intrusive or pretentious- but available as desired. You can go in jeans or fancy duds.
I am grateful they are in Hendersonville.

Our server was talking to other restaurant staff after we were seated by the hostess. He saw us, and we saw him. He took several minutes to come over and welcome us. We could have used some water when we first sat down. He was attentive during the meal, but didn't offer dessert or a menu after we finished our meal. He did not seem to be a professional server, as others at Postero always seem to be- just a way to pay the bills. The food was fantastic as usual.

Loved this restaurant. The menu had loads of great options, including a lot of vegetable dishes, so we ordered a range of appetizers and really enjoyed all of them. The server was great, the food presentation was elegant, and the atmosphere was stylish. Definitely going back.

Had reservations at Postero for our anniversary. Dinner was delicious, my husband had the steak which was cooked to a beautiful medium throughout. I ordered the brick chicken and it had such a great flavor. The strawberry shortcake was heavenly! The flavors pop in your mouth. The staff was attentive, food was excellent.

I normally don't order chicken out as I prefer fish. Just had the brick chicken over roasted cauliflower - very flavorful, crispy skin and a nice size portion. Great flavors together. I would also recommend to all you cabernet sauvignon lovers the Oregon Territory Pinot Noir. Bold, well balanced, and fuller-bodied than most pinot's - my new favorite.

Postero is the best restaurant in the area. The food and service are consistently excellent with creative use of ingredients, presentation, and taste. The prices are extremely competitive for the level of food and service and portions are generous. As good as any restaurant in the Asheville/Hendersonville region with a higher level of personal service than most. Highly recommended.

Always our favorite dining place! Notice I said “dining” not “eating”! Many places to eat on Main Street, but Postero’s allows for “dining”, if that’s your choice!!

Excellent food and service. The restaurant is quite noisy due to the high ceiling and hard surfaces. There was only 2 of us so we were able to talk but a larger party may have issues communicating.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening at Postero. Great service, fantastic food in a cool contemporary setting. We sat upstairs with a window view on Main Street and the ambiance up there was relaxed. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone.
