    Some inventive dishes of high quality and unique textures and tastes-even by Asheville standards! Menu seemed a bit shallow tho it did have typical chicken, vegetarian, beef and seafood. Ambience was clean and highly energetic but not too noisy. I would have down-rated Value but it is in line with AVL food costs.

    Always have a great dinner at Bargello. Love the city ambience. I just wish servers wouldn't clear entrees until everyone is finished. I know they think it's helpful but it's not correct. Makes the last person feel rushed. Other than that the service and Erin were great. We will return!

    So, my partner and I were in town celebrating our anniversary. And we had gotten engaged not even 30 minutes prior to our reservation. It was such great service, the staff were SUPER friendly and helped make the morning special. 15/10. Would definitely recommend to anybody who will listen.

    This is our second visit in the last month. The first time everything was outstanding. This time We each had different choices off the restaurant week menu. It was mixed. Some very good dishes and some fine, but on the bland side. Service was great both times. We are locals and will be back.

    We have eaten at District 42 many times and really enjoyed, it but unfortunately Bargello fell short. We went for restaurant week and while the menu sounded great, the food was very mediocre. The polenta with the lamb was the table favorite but even that was dry and everything else was below average. It was disappointing. I gave it 3 stars but that’s strictly factoring in good past experiences at District 42 (they have the same kitchen).

    We had two dinners and three breakfasts at Bargello during our stay at the Kimpton Arras. The food varied from good to very good. The french toast was special, as the insides were firm instead of runny as we have found it in many restaurants. The fruit bowl was surprisingly delicious, especially it being January. Eggs were prepared exactly as requested. Pasta was perfect. Blueberry muffins very tasty. The service even exceeded the food. Every employee, from host to servers was cheerful and accomodating. After our first visit, our favorite booth was always held available for us and we were immediately seated there without any question. Overall, each meal was a wonderful experience.

    The environment inside the restaurant is nice with modern decor. The front host was welcoming. The seats stuck to our clothes which made it challenging to get in/around the semi-circle booth we got. The beverages were tasteful but nothing out of the ordinary. The Caesar salad was pretty good and we enjoyed sharing it as an appetizer (me and two others). We ordered: pumpkin gnocchi, ravioli, and the fall bigoli (mine). I was not a fan of the flavors in mine but did enjoy the noodle choice - there wasn’t enough crab in there for the cost, but the shrimp was cooked well. The ravioli was aesthetically pleasing and also tasteful on the inside of the ravioli, yet bland otherwise. The pumpkin gnocchi was pretty firm and the duck confit it came with was quite salty. Overall it’s not a bad experience, but I wouldn’t come back due to the quality and value I/we specifically prefer. I did enjoy the pumpkin cake for dessert the most, that I would recommend to try if you go.

    The Zaatar pizza was dry with little sauce or cheese, my wife got the maiale pizza and that was pretty good. We split a Caesar salad and that was also good. The wine was great, service was good. Maybe I could recommend it if I tried some of the other options.

    The food was absolutely amazing! From appetizer to dessert, we ooh'ed and aah'ed over every dish. All of the food was seasoned to perfection and we were highly impressed with each bite! Our waiter, not so much. But the wine manager and the food server (not our waiter) were very pleasant.

    Happy to find a place to have Xmas dinner. Restaurant ambiance is pleasant and prefix menu looked interesting. Tip at 24% was added ahead of time and probably contributed to the poor service. Starters were weak and bread was burnt and so hard that we sent it back. Could not believe that’s something so inedible came out of the kitchen. Past dish was excellent and nice salad although it could have been better dressed. Salmon entree was excellent but short rib was extremely overcooked. I would not suggest such large helpings of potatoes and polenta for the meal. Roasted root veggies would have been perfect with the short rib. Dessert was good but unfortunately the cake was dry and old/stale. I am guessing the baked goods were made prior to the day. We did order a bottle of wine which was good but another 24% tip added to it. I would not have minded but our server totally ignored it and never attempted to refill our glasses. I am guessing it is tough to work on Xmas. We have a second home here in Asheville and very aware of the food scene. I would definitely give these guys another try on a non-holiday.

    My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Bargello. We had some of the most amazing Mussels we have ever had. You have to try them the Saffron Broth is absolutely amazing! followed by the Octopus that was grilled to perfection. We had a Smore desert that was to die for! The staff there worked so well together and were so wonderful, we would fly back to Ashville from Chicago to eat there again! It's a must try Hunter and Chole. Do not miss this one!

    The waiter made the whole experience less enjoyable. Overall forgot to ask how things were or refill things. Also rushed us to order very fast and was obviously upselling without really knowing what the dishes were. Food was good, but could get better elsewhere. Put we had a birthday in the reservation and it was never mentioned.
