Golden Fleece Ratings and Reviews
Absolute disaster. This was our favorite place in Asheville . Drove here several times just to eat here. Upon arrival Sunday night there was clearly a different vibe. Familiar staff were gone. We were queried whether we had a reservation in a mostly empty restaurant. The hostess had to scurry to set the table. The menu had been changed so our favorites were not available. What we wanted to order was not available. The food took forever to come out and was partly cold. The wait staff were flip. Very sad this has happened to what had such great potential
The trout is melt-in-you-mouth delicious. My husband really liked the octopus appetizer and the calamari entree. The staff are welcoming and good with people. The front room is so cozy and warm and relaxing it makes you just want to spend the evening! We are going back tomorrow evening.
The lamb burger is delicious - perfectly prepared. Omeletta of the day is always a treat - yummy combination with feta. Service is superlative - attentive but not obtrusive. Wonderful selection of wines by the glass or bottle. Ambiance is delightful. You feel relaxed the minute you go through the front door and are greeted by the well-trained personable staff. We keep returning to this favorite spot!!
A hidden jem! Absolutely the perfect end to a long day of classes at a GPI conference or a relaxing day at the spa...no need to fight the traffic and parking of down town. Chef and servers were wonderful. Historic building used by the Vanderbilts to teach/train local youth in area trades - Grovewood Industries, I believe the organization was named. A must see.
Great place to eat but the noise level has been exceptionally loud both times I have been there for dinner. Very hard to carry on a conversation. There is nothing on the walls or windows to deaden sound. Such a wonderful place to eat for special occasions. Hope they will address the sound issue.
Golden Fleece was wonderful. The enjoyment began as we walked up to the building through the stone walkway, the landscaping, and the old wooden door. The smiling welcome and the kind service only continued the positive experience. Then, the food happened. Simply exquisite. The quaint, creative ambiance and the delectable cuisine were equal to the gentle, accommodating service. It was a lovely experience and a memorable visit.
Wonderful experience! I was expecting more of a corporate feel for something on an Omni property but this venue was pleasantly warm and inviting. The hostess (sidney) was lovely and accommodating to our changed party size. Our server took excellent care of us and everyone in our party was pleased with the authenticity of our meals as well as the service. I would reccomend this for special occasion or a date night, look out for their Greek wines supplied by Metro. Definitely will return!
We really enjoyed our experience at Golden Fleece. We were their to celebrate my sisters wedding anniversary who lives outside of asheville. My sister & husband had a wonderful evening as well & would like to join us for dinner there again when they come back in town.
The service was great & the wine list was awesome.
Three of us had dinner last week. One of us ordered the trout special, which he thought was delicious. It looked as if it had just come off the stove or out of the oven. Hot, fresh.
The other two of us ordered the "wood roasted chicken." It was completely overcooked and served at room temperature--even the dark meat was dry. The waitress offered me another entree--but it was late already. I just asked for more sauce. There really is no excuse for this to have been served. I won't be back.
One of my lamb chops with medium rare is ordered and the other was raw. The brussels sprouts were wonderful. Don't know about the risotto because it wasn't gluten-free. Nothing drinkable in the lower price category red wines. Overall a very disappointing experience.
As always, GF impresses my wife and me with the service as well as the food. All staff are well trained and knowledgeable about every dish on the menu and we have come to rely on them for recommendations. We are never rushed, but allowed time to enjoy each course, and the food has always been cooked to our specifications. The trout is always delicious and the salmon specials have consistently been memorable. We will be back often.
We had an excellent meal at Golden Fleece. We liked the varied selection of Mediterranean dishes (the wood fired octopus was great, as was the meatball w/yogurt special), and not the tired current Americanized foodie offerings at many restaurants in Asheville. Our server was outstanding and allowed us to enjoy our meal at the right pace, and his port recommendation topped off a great meal.
Although the food was terrific, the barely passable service was so disappointing. Had taken out of town guests after bragging about the wonderful food and great service and we spent the evening waiting both for drinks and food. Needless to say they were less than impressed.
We were some of the first to go to Golden Fleece when it opened and have taken lots of local friends and out of town guests and had two business meetings there. Can't see this continuing if the service doesn't improve dramatically. Don't know if the entire staff has flipped but someone should pay attention when a Saturday night was only half full....something is wrong.
