    From the host to the bartender to our waiter, everyone was so friendly and outgoing. The food was spectacular! Best steak we’ve had in quite some time. Only complaint, another patron sitting right behind us was extremely loud and obnoxious. We will definitely go again. Make reservations for sure! It’s a small place.

    We are locals and dine at Asheville Proper often. We have found their food, drinks and service to be consistently good. This time, we tried a new shrimp appetizer, okra side dish and a new dessert in addition to our steak entrees. My husband ordered old fashions and I had a vodka gimlet. Service, food and drinks were excellent as usual. I would highly recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors alike.

    Our first visit to Asheville. Service and food were excellent. We first had a drink at the bar and was greeted by Brady, bartender. He shared the history of the restaurant as well as the history of the area around the restaurant of which we found fascinating. Our food server was Tess who made every effort to make our dinner experience memorable. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    We were seated at the table nearest the kitchen which I’d usually object to, but because of the open kitchen and wood burning fire in plain view we accepted the seating to watch the cooking happen. Great aged steaks cooked perfectly over an open wood fire, absolutely ridiculously good grits, interesting grilled okra, a decent strawberry rhubarb cheesecake in a cool relaxed Ashville-ian atmosphere - all around a great restaurant experience.

    We had terrific food and service. All the steaks were fantastic and the tile fish delicious! Loved the cabbage and the beet sides as well. The only downside was the chocolate torte which was dry and flavorless.
