Our server was so friendly and attentive. Great service and the food and ambiance was perfect for our anniversary dinner.
This was our 2nd time dining here and we were not disappointed. Great food, wine and service!
We stumbled upon Golden Fleece and were so glad we did. Everything we had was Amazing! Matthew was out waiter, he was friendly and very knowledgeable of everything on the menu. Do yourselves a favor and eat here. We’ll be back the next time we’re in Asheville!
The food was delicious every bite had such flavors touch by herbs and original sauces.
Our server was Matthew he could describe everything on the menu with such knowledge. You knew you could order your food would be delicious!
Can’t wait to return!
Amazing food and great service. Located across the driveway from Grove Park Inn. This place is soooo good...a MUST if you're in the area.
Wow. Wow. Wow. Exquisite and authentic Greek meal! Save the trip to Crete :)
Upon arrival we were told that there was a wait; we waited for 2 stools to open at the bar. Bar service was very slow. After roughly 20 minutes we seated. Our server appeared about 10 minutes later. The food we ordered Ribeye and Lamb were very good (but also slow). And the wine selection was great but I wouldn't recommend this place if you have after dinner plans.
Too noisy, service chaotic, understaffed. Food very good.
Best restaurant in Asheville. A hidden treasure!!!!!
As per previous reviews, I love this restaurant. Creative cuisine and cocktails, cozy inside and has outside seating. I had the trout with saffron sauce again (see previous review). My friends enjoyed the lamb and the steak. We got the octopus as an appetizer and the bread an cheese board. The feta pimento cheese was one of the best pimento cheeses I have had: light not heavy. And the octopus is one of the best things they do here; tender and delicious. They are about to change the menu for fall and I can hardly wait until our next visit!
If you are visiting Asheville, this restaurant is away from downtown so it is easy to park. It is worth leaving downtown to eat here. It is on the grounds of the Grove Park Inn but not affiliated with them. Lovely spot.
Love this restaurant! It never disappoints!
A group of us enjoyed a delicious Sunday brunch at this lovely restaurant. Each meal was perfectly prepared and presented. Outstanding service (Laura was amazing)! The ambiance is so charming we all enjoyed ourselves and will return soon!!
Food is exceptional and wait staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful
The food was outstanding! We ordered Brussel sprouts as our appetizer and they were delicious! The honey was a perfect addition to the salty and crispy Brussel sprouts.
We ordered chicken, steak and veal - all were cooked to perfection! Loved the chocolate mousse and strawberry ice box cake for dessert!
Excellent modern Greek cuisine, in a warm, relaxed environment.
Romantic outdoor dining. Fantastic food!
Delicious. Chad provided attentive and impeccable service. Incredibly flavorful menu options. Wood fired grill creates delightful flavors. We shared beet salad and Brussels sprouts, I had the scallops and Steve had the rack of lamb. It was all perfect and ideal portions. Loved it. Glad to have finally gone there. Definitely our new local favorite.
My partner and I were just spending a day in Asheville and went on a date to the Golden fleece.
The server was knowledgeable and the food was tasty.
The General manager, Jack Casey , Was very hospitable. We will be back next time we are in town !
Food is excellent. The service that day was lacking. Staff seemed distracted, not available, then the servers had to switch out (which in itself isn't a problem). Mainly it seemed like we were bothering the guy somewhat. Also server came over and interrupted our conversation a few times to ask questions. All restaurant servers need to be more aware about that & not just blurt in their questions when you're having deep conversation.
Setting and ambiance were very nice. The table we were given was too high for my chair, so I borrowed one from the table adjacent. The waiter was informed and helpful. The musical group that played was pleasant. The octopus entree was a small portion, but very nicely prepared. The lamb shank was very good. The desserts were very tasty. The bread served with the meal was unremarkable dry grilled toast. The olive oil that came after I requested it improved the bread somewhat, but was not really adequate.
Overall the dinner was acceptable, but fell short of expectations and was rather overpriced.
Great food! Fantastic service! Ambience was perfect. My scallops were delicious and couscous very flavorful.
Great alternative to downtown busy tourist spots. Sit outside if weather permits. Comfortable and seating is not too tight. Good place for a group. We all enjoyed and will return.
Four of us all had a very nice experience. Wonderful lamb and seafood. Our waiter was attentive without being pushy. Gave us time to converse and then took our order. If you want a fast in and out, this is not your restaurant. But if you are looking for a dining experience, this is one of the places to go in Asheville. Staying at the Grove Park Inn? Golden Fleece is just across the side street and right next to the awesome Grovewood Gallery.
Another exquisite meal full of flavor and creativity. Do not miss out on the garlic soup, lamb packets octopus or one of the cocktails. My favorite restaurant. My last review I focused on the trout. This time we did small plates.
Great restaurant! Great service, wonderful food. We will go back for sure!
We had high expectations and we're somewhat let down. The dip and snapper special were good but the Bolognese special was extremely underwhelming and disappointing. Tell of the most disappointing things were the extremely loud noise level and the chef not coming creme brulee even though it was on the online menu. Expect to pay high for your experience.
Lovely atmosphere and we enjoyed our dinner very much and the service was EXCELLENT!
Good very good. Service very poor. Big disappointment.
Birthday lunch for my husband, on a perfect day for outdoor garden dining! A gem of a discovery on our part, and we will return for dinner and on occasions where we would dine inside. Very comfortable and well appointed inside. Service was friendly and attentive in a professional way—not slap on the back overbearing. Right next to the Grovewood Gallery, making for a pleasant next stop, leisurely afternoon. This restaurant perhaps needs more marketing for lunch, but we enjoyed that we were the only diners in the garden.
I was in Asheville for the evening, just a little overnight treat to myself after ending a stressful contract. I snagged an Air B&B and went online to look at dinner options. Google brought them up, I called an Uber and set off on the quiet date with myself. Even the drive there was lovely and proved to be a prelude to a great evening. First off, I was surprised the restaurant was a small, almost fairy tale like house. I walked in and the hostess was expecting me. There were two dining rooms (also outdoor too). The front included the bar with smaller tables and the one in the rear with larger tables. There were only a handful of tables occupied when I arrived. I was grateful for that.
I was led to a two top. I sat in what was like a small loveseat for one person. A bit wider than a standard chair that has a plush throw over it. I was still settling in when my wine came. The decor was a bit rustic with mostly wood but there was an elegance to it. Great lighting and fabrics. My waitress knew the menu well, had great suggestions and was present but not pushy.
My salad was delivered by the chef himself. I knew that because his picture was on the website I checked out earlier. He too was all smiles and when I asked if I could have bread as well, he soon returned with some that he grilled for me. Nice touch.
Dinner didn't disappoint. I even ordered dessert which I rarely do. I just didn't want the evening to end.
I thought several times what a perfect date/anniversary place this place was, but again, was also perfect to reinvest just in myself.
I was looking for an extravagance, and I received one. I'm already planning another trip back to Asheville and this lovely spot, next time with my partner too.
Elegance without all the fuss. Great food and a truly lovely environment. Whether alone or someone special, you'll be glad you passed the hours here.
Delicious food in an intimate atmosphere. The restaurant was short staffed the night we dined but the bartender took it upon himself to leave the bar and take care of us as he would have any table seated for dinner. A nice break away from downtown Asheville in a beautiful area.
Even though I made a reservation for a birthday dinner we were seated in the bar area which was very noisy.
Several wine selections were not available, neither was the trout mousse appetizer (on a Saturday evening?!).
The lamb fricasse was passable at best and the desserts were disappointing.
I'm so happy to have found the Golden Fleece. It's convenient to everyone in the group. There is parking available. The food so far has been delicious and reasonably priced for lunch. The staff is attentive and allows us to sit and talk as long as we wish. The waiters and waitresses are well trained and go the extra mile to make sure our experience is an excellent one. We'll be back with, as one of our group says, our bells on.
Whenever we go the the Golden Fleece, we are never disappointed. We look forward to our visits there.
We had undy brunch...fabulous! Lovely, relaxing atmosphere. Our waitress George could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Each dish was beautifully prepared and delicious. I highly recommend this enchanting hidden gem!
Loved everything the atmosphere, the setting, the service and mostly the food, best lamb shank I have ever had
A friend told me this was her favorite lunch spot, and now I agree. Really delicious, fresh food done in interesting way. Great to eat on the patio when the weather is nice..
I WANT to LOVE this place. The food is great, the atmosphere is interesting and lovely, but something never clicks for us. We never feel welcome. It feels like a “job” for the staff, and the spark is just missing. Too bad, because they have the potential to be a great restaurant. Maybe it’s just the Grove Park tourist “effect”.
great service, creative food, wonderful outdoor dining experience.
Hidden gem. Located next to the Grovewood Gallery. Excellent food and service.
