The Kitchen has no flexibility in terms of sides, the food wasn't delivered at the same time, I asked for silverware and waited 10 minutes
overall had to wait for everything.
It's outrageous when you factor in the Price of the meal!! Four of us ate for $350.

The food was excellent- however the selection of entrees were limited and we were informed by our waiter that the kitchen was inflexible with substitutions and special requests. Our waiter had bit of attitude throughout our dinner - perhaps the restaurant was short staffed during the night we dined. The wine selections are expensive.

The service was first rate as always. We have had Michaela twice and she has been very pleasant and attentive. We were also impressed with the new bartender... he made perfect Manhattans for us.

Really nice surprise. We'd driven by and seen the signs, so we decided to have an anniversary dinner here. We ate on a patio with a nice view of the mountains and got to enjoy a beautiful sunset with our cocktails and appetizers (the pork belly was really good). Excellent service. Great selection of bourbon. Both entrees were delicious and properly cooked, we'll definitely be back.

Has been on our go to list for some time now. This is a
Pretty good drive for us. Our meals there in the past have been pretty good. Last night I ordered the filet. Came out way overcooked. Sides were not very hood. The wife had the shrimp and grits. They were good. Our server, Mark, whom we’ve had I think every time we have been is very good and for the most part did well last night. He did get distracted by something and forgot to check on our drinks.

Rude waiter. Overcooked steak. Horrible dessert — don’t order the chocolate “soufflé”; it tasted like a freezer burnt brownie.

We got the chocolate soufflé which is the reason we came to this restaurant and it’s not a soufflé, it’s just a brownie with ice cream on top. It was still really good, but just disappointing because we wanted a soufflé and chose to go to Evevations because their menu had chocolate soufflé… don’t get me wrong. It was delicious, but it wasn’t what we were there for and it’s false advertisement.
The bread and butter was amazing (I want to buy that butter).
The view is amazing!
Servers were very kind.
Drinks were good.

The view was wonderful. The bourbon selection is AMAZING!! Hard to find treasures like Elmer T Lee, and other Trace products. Not to mention the Old Forester Birthday Edition. And the bar tender, he knows his stuff, especially when bourbon was involved.

The service was kind of slow at first, but our waitress explained they were down two staff members that night. She then rose to the occasion and served us like we were the only four people, my wife and our best friends, in the restaurant. We think her name was Makayla, and she was awesome. I highly recommend requesting her.

The only thing I would rate less than 5 stars were the side items. They were good, but they could have been a little stronger/tastier to match the phenomenal main courses. Also, the fried green tomatoes needed a little more flavor and more pimento cheese.

Between the two nights we had:
- The lamb pop-cycles, cooked med rare of course, and oh so tasty with the mint jelly.
- The pork chop, full of flavor and juicy with nice pan seared edges.
- The fillet, very tender and flavorful.
- The rib-eye, not too fatty but had a great char and flavor.

Now for the Banana Fosters Bread Pudding... this could be the best dessert I'll have until I get to Heaven. Once it hit the table and we had our first bites, it was shared by all, it was gone in less than two minutes. I swear angels were singing as we devoured this thing.

Normally I would regret leaving my sunglasses somewhere but, since they're closed on Sunday and Monday, the remaining days of our trip, we had to swing back by and get out take-out meals for one more night. Of course, this included Banana Fosters Bread Pudding for the second night in a row.

Overall, I highly recommend Elevations at Skylaranna. We didn't stay at the hotel, but the restaurant was more than worth it.

My husband and I enjoyed our evening out here. We dined on the outdoor deck at sunset and the view was amazing. The shrimp ceviche is the best!! Our server, Makayla was friendly and and we enjoyed talking to her. Great for a date night.

Two years in a row now we have had a lovely dinner for my mother’s birthday. The dinners are spectacular every time. Current menu, the airline chicken with bread pudding was one of the best chicken preparations I’ve ever had. We will do our best to return for next year too!

We really enjoyed our dinner at this lovely new restaurant. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed an incredible sunset dinner. The construction comments in other reviews refers to a new pool being built below the restaurant deck. It did not in any way affect our enjoyable evening as there were no workers during our visit. We both enjoyed our meal very much!

What a cool little spot. Everyone is so friendly and the food is very good quality and fresh. It was a great spot for a nice date night. The sunset is amazing. If you like bourbon you have to do the flight of bourbon. Check it out.

Although this was an isolated incident, it totally ruined what my wife and I had hoped for a nice dinner after enjoying our day in Hendersonville. My wife had tempura battered mushrooms with her entree. Her first bite was not mushrooms but the medium they grow in. Mulch, bark, etc. it was awful. The chef came out to apologize and even though they fixed her another meal, the evening mood was obviously changed.

This will be a lovely setting, but it’s still under construction (I wasn’t aware of this when booking our dinner party; a little embarrassing). Parking was limited and in the construction area. That writ, everyone was happy with the food, presentation, service and restaurant interior- we look forward to coming back on completion!

Had hoped for better from a Chophouse.

Cheese board appetizer was good as well as my Filet.
Other main courses were fair and bland from the chicken to the salmon.
Deserts were lacking flavor as well. Both the Key Lime Pie as well as the Flourless Chocolate Cake were a waste of calories.

Service was fair. We were rushed although there were many open tables
and cocktails were spilled on the table without saying a word.

Not what I expected for the money. Very disappointed.

We loved the bread basket and the cheese board. The Mullberry jam was homemade and delicious.

I had the filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli. The filet melted in my mouth. Couldn't eat the broccoli, however. It seemed to be kind of blackened but was too tough and hard. My husband had the shrimp and grits. It was as good as he has ever had. He didn't like it that the shrimp still had tails which were hard to remove.

I wish they had served Brussels sprouts, my favorite.

Great find! Food was great, especially the shrimp ceviche! Our server was attentive and friendly. The only downside was the grounds are under construction. However, the views are spectacular and the large outdoor dining deck does not disappoint.
