Very good food (esp the shrimp scampi), atmosphere, wait staff. Kind of loud, but maybe that was just the table around us.
Truly excellent food and service. Loved it and will be back.
The food was very good and the service was also very good
Great restaurant! Enjoyed the charcuterie, Caesar salad, Halibut, scallops and banana Ice box pie! All amazing. Service was great. Will definitely be back!
Great food. We had the scallops and the steak, both cooked just right.
Everything was fabulous, especially the BBQ chips with sweet onion rosemary mousse! It was like a fluffy pillow! : )
Outstanding meal. Great presentation. Beautiful space. Some confusion w previous diner’s reservation, our seating delayed....then they are very clear you have 90 mins to eat. Felt rushed at the end.....just when you want to savor so good a meal.
Excellent cocktail selection.
Food was served fresh, hot and delicious. Small portions for price but ample
Fabulous and delicious!
Good restaurant, but a little pricey for lunch.
Sat upstairs, building used to be a bank. Food was excellent, two of us had steak, another pork tenderloin and other had ceases salad. Steaks and pork were cooked to perfection and displayed beautifully. Only gripe would be to have chicken breast available for the salad. Desserts were all excellent as was the wine list. Best restaurant in Hendersonville!
We were a little disappointed in the overall experience. Nothing really special. We celebrated our 30th anniversary and thought Postero would be a good choice. Well sadly in wasn't. When making the reservation, it asked about the occasion which I stated wedding anniversary. We also mentioned it to the server, who never introduced himself or asked what the occasion was. In defense of the server who seamed to have all the tables on the upper floor, he was calm and did a great job.
Menu was limited for entrées and desert as well. When leaving, we had the floor manager take a picture who didn't ask anything about our dining experience.
I think its more of a casual place and not a place to celebrate special events.
Zach is the best! We will always support this great restaurant!
The food and service were top notch, as always. It’s a bit of a drive for us to get to Postero, but soooo worth it! I had the seared scallops, which were done to perfection. My husband said the New York strip was quite possibly the best he’s ever had. And we topped it off with the dark chocolate pot de creme. Divine!!
The food was very good as was the service. We enjoyed the experience.
Charming location with friendly service, delicious food and good value. Great stop whether in or traveling thru Hendersonville.
Postero is consistently excellent. The menu is crafted with care and attention paid to the season. The food is prepared with skill and nuance. The ingredients for each dish are selected with imagination and purpose. I appreciate a chef who discourages substitutions. If you don't like the way his dishes are crafted, go somewhere else. But you will be missing a fine dining experience in the mountains--a rarity.
The staff was so nice and the food was delicious!
Daughter home from school.
Nice drive to Hendersonville and walk around the town before and after dinner. Innovative menu of expertly prepared and attractively presented food. Excellent, knowledgeable service by Deirdre (?). Good adherence to COVID protocols. Mask required. Social distancing.
Celebrated our fiends 60th birthday on Friday night. The food, service and atmosphere were all fantastic. Best restaurant in town for sure
Everything was amazing!
The food was fabulous! A-plus for creativity, unique blend of flavors and presentation. Mac and cheese with pork belly is a must-have. We’ll definitely be back the next time we’re in Hendersonville!
It is always comforting to know you can count on a restaurant being consistent and this experience is always consistent.
Honestly, the food was spectacular. I cannot say enough about the meal. Good portion, expertly prepared and seasoned to perfection. Yes, we will dine at Postero again, dinner next time. Just a few things need to be elevated and they might win all the stars.
First- change that Dang head-banging Rock to a more suitable music. Everyone in that dining room was over 70. Show some respect.
Secondly- Put a table cloth on it. No one wants to sit at a paint chipped table. The wilted blooms in a vase didn’t help matters.
Third- my shoes were sticking to the floor- all the way to the ladies room and back. That’s just plain crazy.
Like I said, food was exceptional. Step it up and become phenomenal.
We needed a REALLY good lunch, so where else would we go! I had the trout pate and corn chowder while my husband had the double burger (aka the umami bomb). And it all disappeared. Yummy!
One of our two favorite restaurants in Hendersonville. We are locals and have never had a disappointing meal or experience at Postero in multiple visits. The food (appetizers and small plates and entrees) is excellent and inventive, using obviously fresh ingredients. The cocktail/wine/beer list is extensive and well-executed. The service is outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.
Amazing Amberjack! Cocktail was perfect! Waitress on top of everything!
Wonderful beverage selection
Enjoyed the experience
The food was overall satisfying. We had the mussels which was so tasty except the mussels were very small. The Caesar salad was good but Bibb lettuce become limp very fast. The filet was delicious and cooked perfectly. The panna cotta was interesting.
The wine was great! We will return!!
Our dinner was delicious and the service was fantastic!
Good service - great food.
Nice and comfortable for inside dinning.
A very professional and cheerful server named Jessie made our meal outstanding! The food was delicious. The heirloom tomatoes were a stand out and the decadent desert!
We came here with friends visiting from Austin, Texas and they couldn’t stop raving about the service and the food.
Fine dining in Hendersonville. Distancing for Covid was strict. Food was outstanding (scallops and steak). Server Zack deserves special commendation for his attention.
Met a high school friend visiting the area. We all loved everything! Thank you!
Postero is such a great spot with wonderful food and excellent service! We have simply never had a bad meal!
Seated promptly. Exceptional menu. Good service. Great food.
What an evening! The food was fresh and very well prepared. Our waitress delivered fantastic service too. An overall great experience.
Wonderful evening out with friends to celebrate my anniversary. The staff was great and gave us an Anniversary card signed by the entire staff. The food was amazing! Postero made us feel so special.
Recommended by our Inn Keeper for our anniversary dinner. Very impressed with their safety protocol during COVID. We started off with the cheese plate to share. It was very good. My husband ordered the fresh catch amberjack fish. He really enjoyed it. I opted for the steak cooked to perfection of my requested “medium rare”. It was so tender I barely used a knife. Delicious! Our server was very attentive to our needs and we enjoyed small talk with her. She did not grow weary of my husbands’s endless thirst for water refills that night. We will definitely return for another meal the next time we travel through Hendersonville.
