Bone & Broth
Thank you for choosing Bone & Broth. Sam Douglas General Manager
We had a very nice evening and experience at Bone & Broth. The service was prompt and friendly. We had the manager come by several times to check on us. It was obvious they were focused on providing a top-notch dining experience.
The food was very good. My spouse raved about her shrimp and grits, saying it was the best she's had in a long time. I had the aged bone-in steak and it was grilled exactly to my request. A very nice cut of meat, well seasoned and enjoyable. We started with calamari and the bread plate, both of which were nicely done. The drinks were very nicely done.
The only minor glitch was my mashed potatoes were not hot, but slightly warm. I know I could have sent them back and I'm sure they would have taken care of it, but they were quite busy and I felt the steak would have cooled off by the time I got them back so I let it slide. Not a huge deal, but surprising.
Overall a very pleasant evening and a place I would recommend.
I am glad you had a great evening with us. I am sorry your mashed potatoes were cool. Hope to see you again soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Our go to place for special occasions. Filets are the best and service is exceptional.
Gary, I am glad you enjoyed our food and service. Sam Douglas General Manager
Had the absolute the absolute best meal there. Also, the bartender, Brittany, was outstanding!!!
Todd, I am glad your meal was great and Brittany delivered on service. Please come back soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
I went solo to dinner and sat at the bar and had a wonderful dinner.
Thank you for coming in. I am glad everything was wonderful. Don't hesitate to return. Sam Douglas General Manager
Everything we had was delicious, but the broth appetizer was the prize of the meal ... it was a cup of broth full of so much flavor. I'd go back just for that. My son loved the chicken fajita macaroni and cheese. The chef's cut the night we went was a 40 day dry-aged strip which was delicious. The whole meal start to finish was fantastic. Service was spot on.
Stacella, Thanks for the great review and choosing us. I hope we will see you again soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Best meal out I’ve had in a long time. Filet was cooked perfectly and the sauce was great!
Pamela, I am so happy we were able to serve you a great meal. Sam Douglas General Manager
We went for Burger and Beer Night, The burger was delicious, and cooked exactly to our specifications. The meat was high-quality, and the accompanying caramelized onions, bacon, and sauce were perfect. The paired beer went well with the sandwich. The service was very good, attentive but not overdone, and we felt like valued customers although it was only our first time there. The Burger and Beer Night is also a good deal!
Karen, Thank you for coming out to Beer & Burger Night. I am glad you enjoyed everything. I hope we we you this Monday. Sam Douglas General Manager
We (6 of us) ordered the steak specials ($42/steak), and 5 out of 6 steaks were badly overcooked. Medium rare steaks had a hint of pink in the center but were mostly well-done. My one friend, who has worked in restaurants his entire life, had three bites of the 14 oz dry-aged strip, hoping it would get more rare towards the center, and then gave the rest away.
We had also ordered two bottles of red wine when we ordered our appetizers (which were all very good). The first bottle didn't hit our table until our steaks were all served, and we weren't drinking the wine until well into our third and fourth bites. We ended up drinking only the first bottle and sending the second back as we were already finished with our meals. I addressed all of the above with our server when I paid our tab and she politely apologized.
Ryan, I am so sorry we we mis-cooked your steaks. That along with you slow wine service is unacceptable. I will definitely address it with our team. Sam Douglas General Manager
My wife and I have eaten here twice in the last year and we were SO pleased with the service, food, presentation and quality of the build-out inside; all are just stellar. In a town where so many Exec. Chefs are so carried away with gilding-the-lily and over-saucing their dishes, it is an increasingly rare pleasure to patronize a restaurant where the chef consistently demonstrates restraint, and allows EVERY dish to have a distinct DIVA and a few supporting actors who are not trying to steal the show.
So why not 5 starts??
Sadly, the owners feel that no fine-dining establishment is complete without a TELEVISION set (playing sports) visible from every table. So what might otherwise be a small and romantic culinary haunt, instead shares a little something with the atmosphere of the locker room at the YMCA, sadness.
Trip, Thanks for the input. I hear you and I am going to try something different. We will be leaving the TV in the middle room off except on special game nights. I am hoping that will be a good solution moving forward. Sam Douglas General Manager
Very cute restaurant with a really interesting menu. The execution of the food wasn't great. Food wasn't terrible, but it could have been much better with better execution. For example, the kitchen could not cook a medium duck and my wife's medium steak was way overdone.
Despite these snafus, the service was excellent. Definitely worth giving them a shot, just not for a special occasion.
I am sorry we did not get your meals cooked the way you wanted. I hope you will try us again soon. I know we will do better. Sam Douglas General Manager
Our server was very competent and had a ton of personality. She was very helpful.
Kevin, I am pleased you enjoyed your meal and especially your server. Sam Douglas General Manager
Great service, great food. Daughter has a dairy allergy and the staff was wonderful about working with us on creating a great meal that was safe for her to eat.
Thank you for choosing us. I am glad we were able to take care of your daughter. Sam Douglas General Manager
Great grilled caesar salad with beef tips (and wonderfully smoky bacon bits). Denver steak was flavorful but a little on the tough side. Nice selection of wines and local beers. Collard greens were awesome, as was the charred broccoli. We had the buffalo deviled eggs topped with bleu cheese for an appetizer. They were delicious!
I am glad you enjoyed everything. I hope to see you soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
I would recommend with a caveat: Don't order any fish. I know it's a "meaty" restaurant, but most places in Asheville provide other options. My husband's vegetarian pasta was fabulous, though under-seasoned. My fish had been frozen, I'm sure. The flesh was rubbery and not very flavorful, and the root vegetables were far under-cooked. The server was pretty hand-off, which I like. It was Sunday morning, which means lots of places have long lines in Asheville. If this place got its act together, it could have crowds for brunch. There were only two tables with customers. Nice bakery next door! And the area will be booming soon, I'm sure.
Susan , I am glad you would recommend even with a caveat. You are right the Wahoo we use for the fish sandwich is frozen. That is the only fish that is frozen on our menu. We wanted to be able to offer a fish sandwich at a reasonable lunch price that is why we chose a quality frozen product. I am looking into why yours was rubbery. We usually get complements on that dish. Thanks for the feedback. Sam Douglas General Manager
Spectacular food. Great staff. A wonderful place for a family or romantic dinner.
Elisabeth, Thank you for coming in, and the great review. Please come back soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
B&B have significantly expanded their menu. A meal of shared appetizers is a great choice as is a big hunk of red meat. Oysters on the half-shell selection is awesome. This is not a chain restaurant, though, so expect the tab to reflect that.
Clarkston, Thank you for noticing the work we have done on the menu. Chef Chris has done an amazing job creating variety on the menu. Can't wait to see you next time. Sam Douglas General Manager
Everything was perfect! Really enjoyed the experience!
I am glad you enjoyed your experience. Thank you for choosing Bone & Broth. Sam Douglas General Manager
The Fudge Brownie was one of the best desserts I have ever had. I am going to go back just for that. My meal was also excellent and the service was spot on.
Sounds like you found a new favorite dessert! We will have a brownie waiting for you. Sam Douglas General Manager
We love this restaurant here in AVL. Always a good experience.
Liz, I am glad you enjoyed your visit. See you soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Great service, food was delicious (all six of us finished our plates completely). The restaurant was a bit noisy for my comfort but that should not stop you from trying this very good restaurant.
Todd, I am glad you enjoyed the food. We are working on the noise level and should have it resolved soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Always exceptional! I always highly recommend it to my inn guests for a wonderful dinner. Great atmosphere and staff is very attentive.
Lawrence, We love being right down the street from you and one of the best Inns in town. Thanks for the kind words. Sam Douglas General Manager
Although we go to B&B often this review is for their Thursday night Prime Rib night. Very good product and price. Our server was very friendly as she always is. Knowledgeable and helpful without being overly busy with us. B&B is our local's go to spot for a meal on short notice and we are happy they are in our neighborhood.
Joseph, We love this neighborhood. I don't think you can beat our Prime Rib. I really appreciate your support. Sam Douglas General Manager
Overall the food and atmosphere was good. They forgot our salad and the shrimp we ordered with the steak. But they comp'd us a desert. Overall good.
Corey, I am sorry we did not get you the shrimp and Salad you ordered. Our service is usually better than that. I am glad you enjoyed the dessert and overall felt satisfied. Sam Douglas General Manager
The ambiance and service was excellent. The server and bartender I encountered were very knowledgeable and helpful and the menu choices were perfect for our party with diverse pallets. Will def recommend to anyone in the Asheville area looking for a great meal and awesome vibe.
I am glad you enjoyed everything. I do think we have a great staff. Please come back soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Nothing spectacular here, especially given the prices. (Would it be so horrible to offer us warm rolls or bread?)
I am sorry we didn't hit the mark for you. Sam Douglas General Manager
Great food & service. Taylor makes our night special
Octavio, Thanks for coming and the shout out to Taylor. I will pass it on. Sam Douglas General Manager
We were traveling from Charleston, SC for a weekend getaway to Asheville and Bone & Broth was our pick for Friday night dinner. Excellent service and great food. Started with the deviled egg appetizer that was delicious. My wife had the salmon and I had the Denver steak. Both were cooked to order and very good. Our picky eater ate all of his burger and fries. Couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience to start our weekend.
I am very happy we got your weekend off to a great start. Please stop in the next time you are in town. Sam Douglas General Manager
Food was delicious! Server was very nice and knowledgeable about food and beer menu. Tables were close together but noise level was loud enough that you really couldn’t hear the conversations beside you. Would definitely recommend and it’s on our list for another visit our next trip to Asheville.
Thank for coming in. We will see you next time you are in Asheville. Sam Douglas General Manager
First time going here. I would go back. I and my sister had excellent cocktails. My husband didn't care for his whiskey sour. Crispy Brussel sprouts were fantastic. A must to order. We got the bison strip, pork belly, and flight of steak. All were excellent. Somewhat pricey but hey, we're on vacation. It was a non busy night but noise level was loud. Acoustics were lousy.
Venus, Thanks for stopping in. I am glad you liked the Brussels and Steaks. I hope to see you again soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Both food and service were excellent. Our party had as impossible burger and a bison burger - both very good and worth coming back for. Server very nice and attentive and remembered us from a past visit. Great restaurant!
Larry, I am glad you enjoyed both the food and service. See you next time. Sam Douglas General Manager
We made a reservation and arrived about 30 minutes early. We were seated quickly next to two large parties. They were so loud we asked to move. We were moved but the noise level didn’t really decrease. We had an appetizer and then decided to leave without eating because it was so noisy. The server was understanding and nice. Was looking forward to trying the food after reading reviews, but for an anniversary dinner we really wanted to be able to hear one another and have a conversation.
I am sorry we couldn't get you to a table that would allow you to enjoy your anniversary dinner. Please try us again . It is not always like that. Sincerely Sam Douglas General Manager
Fantastic! We decided to eat at the bar since our table was running behind. No worries though since service was superb. Food was amazing as well, the pork belly was best I've had!
RMVF, Thanks for the kind words and being flexible. I agree the pork belly is the best I've had as well. Sam Douglas General Manager
Interesting place. Food is upscale, but atmosphere is loud and not intimate. A definite hard one to figure out what they're trying to be.
Food was good and creative, although portions were small for the price. Service was very attentive and took care of all our needs.
I am sorry you were confused with what we are. We want to do great food in a great casual atmosphere. I am glad you enjoyed the service. Please come again soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
The food and service were wonderful! We enjoyed everything we ate! My fiance loved the oysters and I especially enjoyed the Veggie Broth! It was so yummy! Our only regret is not trying out Bone & Broth sooner! We will be back and have already recommended the restaurant to several of our friends!
Brianna, I am so glad you finally found us. I am glad you enjoyed the Veggie Broth and Oysters. Thank you for the kind words and I look forward to you coming back. Sam Douglas General Manager
Casual, comfortable, delicious
Thanks for the review. Come back soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Wonderful evening with old friends from Georgia and here in Asheville. Great service and tasty food.
Bobby, I am happy you shared and enjoyed an evening with out of town friends with us. Come back soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Wonderful service and great food
I am very happy you enjoyed everything. Please come back soon. Sam Douglas General Manager
Outstanding and diverse menu, we had a difficult time deciding what to order. Nothing was routine. Best yet was the service.
Frank, I am glad you enjoyed the food and especially the service. I look forward to your next visit. Please say hello when you come back. Sam Douglas General Manager
Excellent food! Exceptional service. The only negative was the seating. We (party of 4) were seated at a very small high-top table that was wobbly though we requested a regular table on Open Table. There wasn’t enough space for everything and had to use the windowsill.
