    Great place for a steak and the mahi mahi and sides were good too. Love that they have small plates as well as full size entrees. Service was great too.

    You know you had an amazing meal when you are still talking about the next day! The Bone Marrow was amazing. The RomIne salad was delicious. Tomahawk was enough beef for 3 people. My niece had the Mahi Mahi and every morsel it was so good. We had a wonderful evening and will be back soon.

    A little on the pricy side but we’ll worth it. Parking was a little difficult. We sat near the kitchen and you could smell the wood burning. Portions weren’t huge but we split an ala crate side and it was plenty. The food quality and service were excellent.

    Loved this place. Started off with the shrimp which were amazing. Next moved on to the Ribeye which was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The flavor was awesome, pair it with the mushrooms and it was out of this world. Finished it up with the S'mores dessert and a coffee. 10/10. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely be coming back.

    The food was outstanding, with one of the best steaks (Wagyu Flat Iron) I have ever had. the other items we ordered (octopus, mushroom ragout) were also excellent. Our server, however, provided virtually no guidance on the menu, even for the special of the day. This deficiency was highlighted by the server for the diners next to us, who gave all sorts of useful details about the menu options.

    Excellent service. Food: started with octopus, the heirloom salad, and the parker rolls. Skip the rolls (dry) but the the other 2 were wonderful. For our mains, we had the petite and the sirloin steaks with a side of potatoes. The potatoes were sooo good. Ridiculously good. I gobbled up my petite, the hubs would order a different cut next time but we will definitely be back.

    The noice level is horrible. Ambiance is more like a diner than fine dining steak house. They did get food out in timely manner but nothing was really good. Overall, we would not go back.

    Most everything was great. My husband had the aged NY strip which was a bit dry. I had the ribeye which was perfect & juicy. I started with the steak tartar. It was quite flavorful. The toast points were nearly burnt & only served with 4, for such a large portion. When I asked for more, I had to send them back b/c they were simply too bunt & black to tolerate. But that was quickly corrected. The service was great. Unfortunately, I mentioned in our reservation that it was our 10th wedding anniversary but there was no mention of that from anyone on the staff, which was quite disappointing.

    My friend and I both ordered strip steaks (out of filets), mine was very good. The beet side was excellent. My friend switched his strip steak to a bourbon marinated strip steak. I didn’t taste his, but unfortunately he didn’t care for it. “Not much flavor” he said. I have no doubt the restaurant would have happily have made him another, or a regular strip steak. He chose to not send it back. I will return. Nice place.

    We loved our food at Asheville Proper. I had the duck and it was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the tenderloin and it was very good and juicy as well. The tables are very close together and it is a small and very expensive restaurant. Our meal overall was very good and the service was just OK. We would definitely go back.
