Took my mom for her 79th birthday. Mark the waiter was polite and attentive. Sprinkled red rose petals on table and wished her a happy birthday. Recommended the pork belly appetizer and filet—both were divine!! We also had the shaved Brussel sprout salad, double cut pork chop, and shellfish and grits. All of it was AMAZING!! The chef really has skill and the food came out relatively quick. The grits were full of cream and tasted as if they were stone ground with grains that were of some size but oh so tender.

I plan to bring my husband when we come back to Asheville.

Because the restaurant is all in an open room we found it quite noisy. There was a family next to us with a young very loud and talkative child. I found it very annoying since we ordered a bottle of wine and were hoping to have a much quieter experience. A friend had told me she found it quite noisy when she was there as well.

Food was outstanding but very expensive. Service was excellent, and the dining room was quiet, so conversing at the table was easy. Elevations doesn’t serve soup or salads of any kind, which we thought was strange. Although burgers were listed on the menu, they were not available the night we were there. They weren’t sold out; Elevations just wasn’t serving them that night, which we found strange. The menu is rather limited. It was $32 for a petite filet mignon accompanied by a couple of tablespoons of mashed potatoes with gravy; at that kind of price, Elevations will be a very rare treat.

We very much enjoyed the understated atmosphere for a gourmet restaurant. No snobbery, for sure! The setting is gorgeous, and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the pumpkinseed encrusted goat cheese! Hearing some of the history of the place was fun, especially that Elvis Presley really wanted to purchase the place way back, but his momma nixed it. Too bad. We'll definitely be back!

We walked out.

Called ahead for the reservation, let them know we were celebrating our anniversary. They said they would put a note on the reservation for a nice table.

Upon arriving. There was no acknowledgement of our request. They tried sitting us at a table in the middle of the room. I requested to sit elsewhere.

The waiter was not personable. It felt like he was reading from a script. Asked us if we were celebrating, came back and literally threw a bunch of roses at us on the table.

When I asked for recommendations on gluten free items, I was made to feel like it was a hassle. He did not take the time to walk through menu.

Trying to figure out what to order...

Wine list felt overpriced.
Only one steak option, a filet. For a chop house it felt like a miss not to have at least one other option.
The cocktails were not inspiring.

We ordered a salad. When it arrived, looking like nothing special, with no plates or silverware provided to eat it with. We then informed the server that we would be dining elsewhere.

Calling ahead, I tried to give this establishment a real chance to make us feel welcome. Very disappointed in the actual experience.

Note: we did not actually try the food. This app did not let me proceed without providing a "star" rating for every category

1st time visit for my wife’s birthday. It was very delicious!! If I had 1 small comment would be the key lime pie was average, probably wouldn’t get again but just a preference. Service was spot on and fillets were cooked perfect! Thanks, looking forward to visiting again.

This was our first visit and we all enjoyed our meal. Elevations is a quaint restaurant with a spectacular view of our beautiful mountains. The service was timely and our waitress was polite. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

The drinks were delicious but a little on the pricey side.

Overall everything was fine, parking was difficult but it looked like they were doing some construction. They did run out of the entree that I wanted but my second choice was good. The service at the bar was not so good but once we made it to our table everything was fine.

The food was awesome and would definitely return for another meal. The price is worth it, but at that price it makes a special occasion restaurant. The one downfall and it was Valentine's Day is that the lighting was too low. Seeing our food was difficult and signing the charge slip we had to use the flashlight on our cell phone. It was still a good experience.

One of the best new experiences in some time. Food and service was wonderful. It’s a bit of an issue parking and getting in, especially on a cold rainy night but hopefully that will improve as it appears construction is going on.

This was our first trip to Elevations. I had the Filet and it was outstanding. Cooked perfectly and full of flavor. She had the shellfish and grits..She said it was yummy. The menu is kind of limited but there are other items that look tempting to try. Staff was great. We will come back again.

Staff was great and Mountain Views were picturesque. Food was great but prefer more spice myself. Companions thought their plates were terrific. Cocktails and dessert were superb. A bit of construction going on so confusing where to park and not enough light to navigate easily after dark but still a fabulous experience. Makayla was a super friendly, skilled and professional server. She made our day. Other diners seemed to really enjoy their meals as well. A great place if you dine alone, celebrate a birthday with friends and family or want a romantic date. They have bourbon flights and Friday night fondue which we will try on another visit.

While traveling with family and friends, we wanted to welcome the New Year’s together at a nice place. Elevations definitely was the best choice. The staff was great at accommodating our large party of 18 and the food was exceptional! From the fondue, to the charcuterie board, to the lamb, filet and desserts, everything was cooked to perfection. Portions are plentiful yet flavorful and the ambiance is warm and cozy. Definitely would recommend!

New Year’s Eve dinner. Parking was a bit limited with construction going on which hurt the ambiance a bit. I had the tuna and my lady friend had the salmon. Food was very a tasty, but a bit on the cool side. Waiter was ok, but not really an outgoing person. However he was good at answering our questions. The highlight was the key lime pie for dessert. It was excellent!! We will return at a later date when construction is over.
