Great food. Great service. There were 8 of us. We got our food in a timely fashion. Service was on top of things and very courteous. Do if d was outstanding
Food was served quickly, drinks were great, deals were great, and the service was impeccable. We went on a Sunday night and it was fantastic!
Good place, good food, good ambience. Would recommend,
Food was fair at best. Nothing special about this restaurant.
Great place and super service
We had large group- very accommodating! Excellent and friendly service.
Easily amazing food and all the 4-5 star reviews about that here will update you - the food is solid and excellent, so is service.
The downs were ultra hot indoors (for us), which made it difficult to finish everything. Worse however were the (four...yes four) bridal parties atmosphere smothering an otherwise sexy B-day date.
On walking out my lady pointed to the "we welcome bridal parties" sign and I realized we'd been punked. Gotta say that that the whole bridal / bro parties have now ruined the formerly nice / local AVL vibe (and being a local I can tell you locals mostly don't go downtown much anymore for this reason). Might've been a fluke, but I think Aux (and any AVL restaruants) should maybe set off a bridal / bro party area so normal people can hear themselves talk. And maybe drop the thermostat down a few degrees when its so hot...
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville. This trip was a result of having taken a local foraging tour. A feature of the tour was that we could pick one of five local restaurants that would incorporate some of the items that we foraged into two our meal. Aux Bar added three of our ingredients into two small plates. The presentation was very nice and the dishes were delicious. Definitely keeping this restaurant on our list of favorites.
I cannot recommend this place enough. The service was amazing. Great staff, very informed of everything offered on the menu. Duck wings were amazing. Will definitely return.
Funky hip with killer cocktails and tasty small plates. Feels more like an in spot that isn’t just targeting tourist dollars. Service was attentive and knowledgable. We loved Fools Gold, a standout cocktail.
Amazing burger and my fav was pork rinds and pimento cheese!
Great food and cocktails, awesome atmosphere, friendly staff! We will be back!
Awesome atmosphere and service. Loved the music.
Great food with innovative southern offerings. Cocktails are also good; any place that offers bottle service for a 40-ounce King Cobra Malt Liquor has to be checked out.
It's much too hot inside on a summer day; server Phillip is the BEST; mushroom burger not good enough to have again; humus is very thin and interesting; burgers and fries always good
Sat outside. There were mosquitoes (probably because of the water feature), a homeless man singing and dancing and smoking cigarettes. The burgers were way overcooked, the fries too salty. Had been a big fan (local and go now and again), but likely won't go back, at least not for a while. The one good thing, was our server was very friendly and good!
I got the steak frites, it was alright. Kinda chewy. Fries are good.
first time in Asheville. Great food and service. loved the chill vibe
Restaurant was nearly empty. My partner ordered the fried chicken, I ordered the steak frites. The server brought the fried chicken 10 minutes before bringing my medium rare steak. So he nibbled at his chicken, while I continued to wait. When she did bring mine, there was no apology for it taking so long. Then of course he has to wait while I finished mine.
The restaurant was hot too - end of June and they had windows open and ceiling fans circulating the warm air. Go elsewhere, there’s tons of other restaurants in Asheville.
We had a wonderful time our server was great & still was the food!
Our meal was tasty, but not as good as it has been on prior visits. I find the quality uneven at times, and I also prefer this spot for lunch over dinner.
Food was way over salted. Couldn’t eat most of it.
We brought our teenage twins as we were on vacay. At first we weren’t sure what to order. We just asked questions as we were encouraged and had a delicious dinner.
First time here and enjoyed very much. Would return. Unassuming atmosphere with above board food quality and great service.
Awesome Burger. Great cocktails and beer. Really cool vibe. Like party-ish divey, but chill and groovy at the same time. Really casual atmosphere with upscale menu
Fun and fabulous!!! We enjoyed the food immensely and the DJ was rocking!! Brought us back to our yourh
Decent food, a little pricey.
It’s hard to identify the worst part of the experience: the lackluster food, the disappointing wine, the half-hearted service, the lack of ambiance, the disturbing art, or the cigarette smoke permeating the air. There are too many good restaurants in Asheville to return to this one.
Amazing food, amazing service, guy that was Busser, host and waiter was extraordinary!!
We had been earlier in the year for lunch on a whim and it was pretty good.
This time for dinner was a disappointment.
We had a group of five and out of all of us only dish, the catfish, was really the only plate anyone was impressed with.
Two servers took care of our table, one seemed disinterested and the other was good.
Good drink and cocktail menu.
Perhaps a better bar than restaurant.
But like many places now in Asheville,I left feeling like we didn’t get a whole lot for our time or money.
It’s an interesting space and I appreciate their $5 nickel food program for the homeless, but I’m afraid we will pass on a third trip back.
Aux bar is fantastic! Stumbled on this place on Open Table with friends and family in town for a holiday weekend. Aux had an outdoor table for ya and sat us immediately- good and drinks were well priced and excellent. Their home made Bloody Mary mix is a must have! Excellent brunch menu!
Service could have been better food great.
You got to try this place at least once. It’s a great spot for late night bites, especially after a show at the local venues. A bit loud, service was slow, but we would agree that you have to give it s try.
Good food and quiet enough to have a conversation. Will come back for sure.
The menu is very heavy and low on vegetables and anything healthy
Having been to a Blind Pig Dinner—and having read very good reviews of the restaurant, I had high hopes for Aux Bar. In short: My friend and I were disappointed.
As I’ve noted in other reviews, Asheville restaurants have a very high bar to cross because of all the outstanding competition. So, while Aux Bar may have received higher votes in another locale, it needs something else to excel here.
Here’s an example: On the list of special house cocktails, there’s something called a “Sweet Home Alabama.” Catchy name. Now, catch the ingredients: Jack Daniels, Caramelized Peanut Orgeat, RC Cola, and Fresh Cream. (I would pay to NOT take even a sip.)
Back to the food….The mushroom soup was tasty, and the “flavored oval of nicely spiced cheese” floating in it was a unique touch; the chicken liver pate with toast was very good, though the toast was soggy; the large salad with beets had lettuce that looked and tasted more like the base ingredient for a chopped steakhouse salad; the generous serving of crispy Brussels sprouts with a poached egg was delicious.
This being my sixth visit I continue to be impressed with the extraordinary quality of the food. Having lived in Paris (France, not Texas) for a year and New Orleans for 35 years, I can attest that the French onion soup is the best anywhere. The romaine salad with fried chicken and the lunch poboys are also superb as are the fries.
Perfectly delicious pancakes that are huge and unlike your mom’s. Unique combination of sweet and a touch of savory. Paired with the best Bloody Mary in Asheville and brunch doesn’t get any better!!
Wonderful service and food. Mike the bartender made our night!
Dinner and the service was great. The only thing that wasn't pleasant was the location on our table, it was directly in front of the entrance, and was cold every time someone came in or left the restaurant.
