Was a fantastic experience. The cocktails were great, the beer was cold and the food was outstanding. The hummingbird cake is a must!
Outstanding service, beautiful atmosphere, and DELICIOUS food and drinks.
Excellent service and food
Excellent all around. Menu a bit abbreviated, but items offered looked scrumptious enough it was difficult to decide. Our server, Nehemiah was friendly, professional & attentive. Food prepared perfectly, with different twists which we liked. Would like to see more dessert offerings! Would definitely plan to return…
Great choice for an evening out. Delish cocktails and food!
Had the trout and collards in broth. It was excellent. And the tomato appetizer was also very good.
Extremely short menu for food. Lots of good choices for beer and wine.
I'll be back soon.
I had the braised short rib (best ever!) and my son had the Berbere spiced chicken, the food was excellent and fresh, the service was welcoming and warm, and we topped it off with the hummingbird cake and a snifter of the Duplimatico Rum!
Benne on Eagle never disappoints food was Devine and the service , friendliness and ambiance are terrific
The pours from the bar are The Best
And top notch art work from local artist Joseph Pearson. Go to Benne , you won’t be disappointed
We reserved two tables for six and staff quickly accommodated our party of twelve by moving tables together. Everyone was courteous and helpful. Service was great.
I would have given them all outstanding since 3/5 of us got excellent meals but, the french toast was beyond caramelized, just burnt. They weren't very busy so there was no excuse to send out burnt food.
Good and service were great. A little noisy. Would recommend this restaurant to a friend
Disappointed in the food. Pork chop was over cooked. Hummingbird cake was dry and tasteless. Service was excellent. I expected to pay a premium but quality needs to be better for us to return.
Great Farm to Table. Outdoor seating was open to a courtyard and energetic. Food was outstanding in quality and taste.
The food was excellent, as was our server, Crystal. Really respect the team’s focus on African American heritage, location in the historic “Block,” and predominance of African Americans in the restaurant team. Sadly, to celebrate our anniversary, we seated next to an inconsiderate and unruly party of 15+. Needless to say, that quashed our ability to celebrate. We headed out as soon as we could get our check.
Excellent evening at Benne. Service was great. Food was excellent and beyond expectations. Loved the spiced chicken wings appetizer-not spicy hot, but super spice flavorful. Excellent crawfish rich for entree accompanied by a delightful white Sav Blanc wine. Highly recommend this restaurant off the beaten path.
Food was great, interesting mix of flavors. Best meal I had in Asheville. Our bartender/server, Brandon, was pleasant and efficient. Would highly recommend.
The food is consistently great and the service is impeccable. We’ve been back several times to take friends and have been warmly greeted at each visit. We love this place
Fantastic dinner! Creative and unusual. Jerk squash would not have been something I would have thought to prepare but it was delicious. Everything tasted fresh from the garden. Our server, Alexis, was perfect!! Charming, knowledgeable, and on top of it! Will be back.
Clean, simple, delicious food! Good wine selection, good atmosphere.
Taking my wife’s mom and sister out to a great dinner before we headed back home.
The dining experience at Benne was phenomenal! From the food to the service to the personal visit at our table from Chef Malcom, I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Do yourself a favor and run to this place. You will not be disappointed.
A great place with a great story. The food was on point and very tastefully presented. Will definitely go back!
Great meal and incredible service -- always enjoy the porch and the food was imaginative and incredible.
The patio seating here is lovely with a view over the lawn of the Foundry Hotel and it’s quiet while the inside is more noisy. Our meals were a mix. The tomato salad with hyssop was one of the best, more interesting things we had. The chicken was also very tasty with an interesting combination of flavors. I cannot recommend the smoked trout, however. It was probably cooked just right but the flavor was just too strong and the fish a bit tough. The squash sauce with it was delicious but didn’t make up for it. Great Malbec. Staff pleasant and efficient.
Food and service were excellent! The restaurant space is gorgeous. Made the mistake of not going in hungry; definitely make room for food and the Hummingbird cake!
Crystal is an awesome waiter as is the manager. The vibe was great. My pork chop was awesome except that I would have liked a bit of veg on the plate. The portion of the salad was plenty to share. A bit on the salty side however. My date liked the trout but I would not have enjoyed it from the taste I had.
Great pork chop and Humming Bird cake.
Very disappointed that dynamite Pork Chop Dish ordered in past was changed to smaller size with no price change and was over-cooked as well.
Lovely place for brunch and service was friendly and wonderful.
First time to this restaurant but to our surprise the food was delicious. My crawfish rice was amazing, balanced flavor. Recommend to all, try this place.
Beautiful setting! Great food!
Apps and entrees were delicious. Do not recommend the two desserts though. 4 of us at the table thought the chocolate cake was dry and banana one wasn’t great either :(
Excellent food it was ok. Would definitely return.
Great environment, unique foods. Our server Nehemiah was attentive and professional
We booked a table at 8 on a Friday. We were seated promptly, ordered some drinks and an appetizer. Waited forever, then our appetizers came but still no drinks. Main course was the same story. The menu was small, the food presented fairly simply. The vegetables were cold. When we commented we got a new serving, this time with some griddle marks but still cold.
Overall the experience did not tempt us to come back.
Delicious food with a variety of options for every palate. Laid back vibe. Courteous and friendly staff. Bartender was exceptional!
We sat outside on the back patio. The attentive servers were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. Can’t wait to go again when we come to Asheville.
Nehemiah was wonderful. He did a great job explaining the menu.
Fantastic local spot. Excellent service, great menu and drink list. Highly recommend!
