    Great date night. Wonderful wine list, the houmani salad was excellent and way more food than we expected! Husband had the rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked. I had the seafood tortelloni which were very tasty, especially the sauce with the grilled ciabatta. The pasta was heavier than I expected but the filling was light and delicate. Wonderful flavors all around. Matthew was a great server and knowledgeable on the menu. Bravo Bargello!

    We’ve eaten here several times with family and friends. The food last night was disappointing to,say the least. Service was terrific as well as the atmosphere but whoever is in the kitchen just isn’t cutting it for those prices. The other couple we were with made similar comments. No plans on returning.

    The ambiance was fabulous. Gorgeous Art Deco hotel. Ordered a simple breakfast : two eggs over hard eith sausage and breakfast potatoes. First I got bacon. Then when I cut into my eggs they were over easy. They replaced the eggs and the bacon and eggs still came back a little runny. Underwhelmed.

    Probably the best duck breast I have ever had, the flavor profiles with the spices and ingredients used was seamless. Everything was prepared very well. Nothing over cooked in the slightest. Braised lamb was amazing as well fell apart on top of the risotto and came together well. Also had the Spanish grilled octopus which again was impeccable. Cheers to the Chef and to the staff there. Our waitress was Devon, she was 100% on top of everything we needed and was there when we needed her as well as absent at the appropriate times. Incredible service incredible food !!

    The service and atmosphere are always great but the food this time was a bit of a letdown. The burrata and tomato appetizer was good although some of the tomatoes were under ripe. I had the halloumi salad with fried chickpeas and the chickpeas were soggy and overall the salad was underwhelming. I’ve dined here several times and generally the meals are better. There was definitely a lack of attention to detail this time around.

    We went here for Father’s Day brunch. The location and indoor Decour are just beautiful. The food was also very good. The donut holes are a must try. Our waiter however was not very helpful or timely. We had to ask for another employee to help us wrap up the meal and to pay for our food. This experience would’ve been five stars had we had better service.

    The service was rather slow and there were apologies. It was a longish wait for our food. Fortunately we were not in a hurry and enjoying each other's company and conversation so it wasn't really a problem for us but I'm sure less patient customers would have had major complaints. I only mention this as I don't know what the reason for the long waits but it should be corrected for less accommodating customers then we were. Actually we had a very nice time in the beautiful place and with the excellent food. This was my third visit and I was hosting for my brother's Father's Day Holiday.

    Bargello was full of light and positive energy. Staff were accommodating with special requests from cocktails to menu. Our server was well-informed about ingredients in entrees; he was gracious, humorous, and had terrific sense of timing. The burrata, paella, octopus, and desserts were delicious, beautifully presented. Loved the creative touches from citrus pearls on the octopus to fried basil on a dessert. The entire staff reflected a warmth and teamwork which we appreciated. Our only challenge was parking on a Saturday night in Asheville. Valet parking was not available for restaurant patrons who were not staying in the hotel. Otherwise, a great evening. We will be back.

    The overall vibe of the two spots in the lobby of the hotel are great. Very chill and retro-mod. The attention to detail is great. Also the love the seating arrangement and the large number of comfy booth seating, both large and small. Has a bit of a Manhattan fee. The food was very good, the Mediterranean plate is essentially a meal. As with many better restaurants in town, the prices have really begun to climb. Dinner for two, with average price entrees and 3 cocktails with tip was 200$. But for a place that usually has space on weekends, and a place to go with a group, I think its worth it.

    Staff was friendly and service was great. It’s funny because other than our server, none of the staff smiled. All were helpful and friendly but never a smile. Maybe they are trying to create a vibe of some sort? Anyway, we started in the bar which had really nice craft cocktails. We moved to our table and had the lamb pizza as a starter and it was delish. Then we had the pallella for two which was ok. I feel like it was lacking in fish and had too much rice. Almost like it was for one and they just doubled the rice to make it for two. It didn’t have a crust on it like traditional pallella but it was still flavorful.

    Have not been to a restaurant where the service was excellent from beginning to end. Congratulations to everyone, the entire staff deserves many As+++++. My appetizer was very. good, the pasta my partner had was excellent, very tasty. I have to say that my Sunburst Trout main entre was not at all good. It was on over what it seemed to be more than entire jar of capers, and because it was extremely salty, I really believed it. It was pointed out to me that even though it had a lot of capers, what was in abundance on my plate were actually very salty lentils. I personally don't think that was a very nice combination, it didn't look very appetizing. Though I am not on a law salt diet. it was hard to finish the meal. I am a chef too, I would review that particular recipe.

    Weekend visit. Staff was phenomenal - some of the food was very salty unfortunately (we had the octopus and one of the meat centric flatbreads). The salad was outstanding but the trout dish fell short of the execution. The fish was cooked PERFECTLY but the sauce and lentils did not bring out the best in the fish. It was a lovely restful oasis in the heart of the bustle of downtown so it was worth the visit.

    Our first visit to Bargello was a delightful experience. The food was delicious and attractively presented. The mussels with fennel, sausage and saffron broth were the best we have had in recent memory. The beet salad was gorgeous and so good with the use of local sourwood honey. The Mafaldine Ragu was also a winner with fresh homemade pasta and a yummy short rib and port sogu sauce. As with many Kimpton hotels, they have done a great job with the esthetics of the restaurant. Our server, Devon, was friendly and very knowledgeable. We live in Asheville and were delighted to discover this restaurant. It is easily our favorite Mediterranean restaurant in town.
