Outstanding food and service! Pork belly appetizer was perfectly prepared. Halibut entree was delicious. New York Strip Steak was top notch. Atmosphere was enhanced by live music. Service is exceptional. We highly recommend Bargello.

Came for restaurant week. Very tasty 3 course menu.

Service was excellent. Really nice. Attentive. Very covid conscious. Felt very safe.

Food was very good. The porkchop was very salty. I like salt but most people would not. halibut was a little overcooked. Personally, I would take off only 1/2 star for the food if possible as they were both edible and nice.

Save room for the white cake.

We shall return!

Last night we dined at Bargello for Christmas dinner. They had a priced fixed menu where the food was served family style. Every dish that came out was spectacular as was the service. We never felt rushed as we were asked between courses if we were ready for the next course. The tastes of all the dishes blended so well together. This was not our first experience at Bargello but it probably was the best. Look forward to dining there again next time we visit Asheville.

We were back by the kitchen which was fun to watch, but a tad loud due to the very nature of kitchen hustle & bustle. Our server, Matthew, was GREAT, personable and very nice. Attentive when necessary, but not overly smothering giving us a chance to enjoy the evening. Food was delicious and we have a few leftovers to enjoy!

Outstanding across the board starting with the valet service . The receptionist was friendly and helpful; our server Jennifer was very personable and friendly, and accommodating. Good and wine was great (l had the waygu steak and my wife the butternut squash ravioli). We live in Asheville and recommend that more locals should patronize this place!

Excellent Dinner and Service

With family out of town, we had the pleasure of Thanksgiving dinner at Bargello. Our server Jennifer C. was welcoming and attentive. Every item of the three courses was delicious. Perhaps my favorite was part of the first course: cranberry ricotta gnocchi, with creamy parsnips, roasted turnips, bacon lardons, caramelized onions, almond brown butter and herb crumbs. We can't wait to get back to Bargello.

Thanksgiving Dinner -Totally Amazing!!
The service and food was the best ever. Presentation was creative. Dishes were created with a little twist to traditional fare.
Served family style with huge servings. I’m local and have tried several places. This has been the best experience. I’ll be back next year. Great cocktails and wines.

So glad we picked this for dinner. Early dinner before more people came in and they were kind to put us in a quieter corner. (Music plus hard surface walls, floors and ceiling don’t help to dampen noise from voices to dishes to steps.) impressed by all the dishes we ordered - grilled octopus, root salad, lamb, trout, and miso ice cream. Waitress was attentive and helpful too to make it a worthwhile expenditure of our calories and dollars. Definitely recommend. Only wish the chef go lighter on salt in the dishes.

The noise of the music really ruined the experience. I like hotel restaurants for their spaciousness but many hotel lobbies and restaurants play music at ridiculous levels. The food was ok. I had Pasta with Cacio e Pepe that was tasty. The rest was unremarkable.

We were staying at the beautiful Kimpton Hotel and were so happy about the amazing restaurant in their lobby! We were told it is not affiliated with the Hotel, but we were thrilled with the accommodations and the restaurant. We ate there 3 mornings for breakfast and also enjoyed one dinner there. Everything was delicious.
