    We did the chefs tasting menu and it was so great. We enjoyed every single dish, the waygu, salmon rice cake and coconut cake were superb. Everything was fresh, and high quality. We really enjoyed the experience and would definitely go back. Service and ambiance were excellent as well.

    Ukiah was fantastic. We did the tasting menu (highly recommend) since we couldn’t begin to choose what to try from all the intriguing options. Everything was exceptionally well-designed with great balance of flavor, texture and presentation. Our server, Rosalie, was super helpful and professional, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Don’t miss Ukiah if you’re in Asheville!
