    The service was slow as no waiter claimed our table until we asked. Kitchen was really slow with one entree coming out almost 10 minutes ahead of the second.

I'm saddened to hear you had slow service throughout your meal that made for a negative experience overall.

    The team was clearly short staffed then hit with a computer snafu in the middle of service. However, my fiance and I enjoyed our time! We had the shrimp cocktail and cocktails to start. The shrimp were super fresh and the dipping sauces were yummy. We ordered the catfish and sirloin for dinner. The hush puppies were very salty, but the fish was fresh and fired perfectly. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered, perfectly seasoned, and overall delicious. Highly recommend! We stopped dinner off with sticky toffee pudding and the chess cake. Both were very good, but I preferred the pudding more. The hot caramel sauce and ice cream took it over the top. I loved the vibe of the restaurant and would definitely go again.

    We never received service. We waited 10 minutes and no one came to the table. We checked with the table next to us to see how long they had been waiting with no service and they said 20 minutes. We left after hearing this. The host didn't question why we were leaving, he just said "have a good night". We have tried to eat at this restaurant twice, the first time we had to cancel our reservations because they were requiring all guests to be vaccinated. After the restaurant recognized the sheer folly and stupidity of this and rescinded their Vax requirement we figured we try again. Holeman obviously has little regard for its customers. We won't be trying them again.

    The Shishido peppers and the pork terrine were excellent. However the clams and the mushrooms were extremely salty and had to be returned. The meatloaf was tasty but had an unusual presentation. The serving portions are small Everything came out looking like an appetizer portion. Cocktail portions were also shallow Very pricey

    A gem in the culinary scene is Asheville. Very nice indoor and outdoor seating, relatively quiet (not super busy during our meal). Excellent personal service, creative menu and the oysters were fresh/extremely tasty. Our first visit to the restaurant and the first review I have written. This place is high on the list for our return. Give it a try

    Delicious food and options for a unique dining experience. Their patio is gorgeous. We began by building a board, gentleman’s relish, finocchiona, cacciatorini, Gouda and the best feta I’ve ever had. Julia provided us the best recommendations in building our board. Next, I opted for the veal brain in order to try something I’d never had. It did not disappoint, delicious and filling. Served with a velvety red sauce. My husband ordered the cheeseburger which was also delicious. The house made pickles really set the burger apart from just your average burger. Finished our meal with panna cotta which was the perfect sweet yet light finish to our dinner. I would love to return, and would highly recommend dining here.

    Beautiful restaurant we’ve been wanting to try. Loved the detailed decor and vibe. Best martinis in town, but little choice for those who don’t want fried or more healthy food options. Carbonara was a winner, best hush puppies. Fired catfish was light but fried to the max. Tomato salad wasn’t that flavorful. Over all fun and great dessert!

    Holeman & Finch Public House - AshevilleResponded on August 16, 2022Robin, thank you for your review.
