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 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

Very good food (esp the shrimp scampi), atmosphere, wait staff. Kind of loud, but maybe that was just the table around us.

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.
Kudos!!

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!!

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.
