Great time, really good food. 6 of us had reservations. We were seated on time and service was good. They have a great bar selection.

The menu is limited in size but that should not stop you. All 6 ordered something different and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

I will come back next time in Asheville.

Favorite restaurant in Asheville - just south (easily walkable) of downtown with available parking. Fabulous food always seasonal: Swordfish grilled to perfection (soft but done all the way throughout) with arugula pesto, fresh peas and sprouts, spring fennel. Great duck breast - no matter how it is prepared and accompanied. Good small plates - Mac and 3 Cheese, Octopus. It is a busy late dining spot and bar - so go early (before 8 PM) and you will be doted on by their intelligent and affable servers.

Flavor in every bite. We both had steak (filet). It was very good, with an herb topping and charred vegetables, the meal had different flavors in each bite.

Overall very good. Excellent cocktail menu and rums. The food menu was limited though with very few vegetarian options. Luckily the beet and strawberry salad was delicious and filling. The desserts were just average. Waitress was pretty good. Timing of meal was great, didn't feel rushed nor do we have to wait too long for anything.

Service was VERY SLOW and the restaurant was incredibly loud. Our waitress seemed to forget we were there to take our order and as she would occasionally pass our table for us to ask for something she seemed a bit surprised to see us. About a third to half of the time, my wife and I had difficulty hearing each other across the table. There is really nothing in the restaurant to help with acoustics or to dampen the clanging of dishes in the kitchen (which is open to the dinning room) or loud voices of other patrons. The walls are either wood or a wall of glass, with virtually no curtains/textiles of any sort to absorb a little noise. Table tops are wood with no table clothes. Floor is not caperred (which is fine and I would not expect). Some acoustic dampening would do a world of good here. The fact that it took an hour and fifteen minutes for dinner to arrive obviously made all of this worse, not to mention that the dining room was uncomfortably warm. (Heat from the open kitchen??). All of the above was really a shame because the food was actually quite good. Unfortunately, by the time it arrived, we were so ready to get out of there it' was hard to enjoy it.

Just a fantastic meal. The goat cheese gnocchi was otherworldly. We followed that with the pork chop, which was excellent, and a New York Strip which was on special. Probably one of the most memorable NY Strips I've ever had. Our server was great, attentive, and knowledgeable about the dishes and rums. We're not huge rum/rhum people, so not much to comment there although we did try one we really liked! But the food... Just great.

Everything was delicious. We had the Mac & Chez app, fried oysters and pimento chez to start. Followed up with a NY strip we shared. Everything was outstanding. Food cane out quickly and prepared to perfection. Our server Robyn was wonderful.

We ordered a French flight of Rhum. So delicious and server was very helpful with labeling the different flavors when they arrived. Started with small plate of short ribs and decided on the steak special of the evening. It was so thick I thought impossible for it to be tender. Wrong! It was excellent. Can't wait to go back!!

The price was right--Monday nights burger and beer for 10 dollars -- the waitress was superb -- but my medium burger was crispy on the edges and had all the flavor cooked out. I will go back once more and give it a try. We shall see.

We had lovely salads and "starters", which were plenty of food and creative . As this was the start of a birthday evening, we had cocktails which were delicious. We were there early (before a show) and the ambiance inside was great. It did get rather loud towards the end of our meal with a table of 8 near by.
I would recommend Storm to anyone. We had a great experience.

Great restaurant with local ingredients and fabulous ambiance. The cocktails and service were wonderful and the food was superb. My only complaint is that the 2-top tables along the wall are so close together we might as well have been sitting with all the other couples next to us. We could hear every single bit of their conversation and they could hear ours. And I didn't really want to hear some of what these people were talking about as it would have been better saved for a conversation in private.

Storm has always been one of our Asheville favorites. The selection of rum and other cocktails/liquors is outstanding, as is the menu, which is inventive and mostly locally sourced. We never go there without ordering the chicken liver mousse -- silky and delicious, with yummy house made pickled accompaniments including jalapeños. All four of our entrees were wonderful -- from a small plate of beautifully seared scallops to a succulent duck breast to an excellent hangar steak and perfectly cooked swordfish. The service was impeccable, as usual, and a great time was had by all.

This was our first time to this unique venue. Great ambiance and interesting decor held our focus. However, the food left much to be desired. We knew the menu was a short list of items - all the more reason why the options should taste GOOD. We had the chewiest filet I've ever had; it was not satisfying at all. We ordered the mac and cheese app - which is an odd app that came with no plate to eat it on. The brownie was like cake and could only eat half / it was blah. Decent service! Friendly and attentive. The restaurant is in a convenient location. It was a cold winter night when I ate there , but it appears they have outside seating as well.

My husband and I love Storm and tell everyone about it.
This particular night there was a group in the dinning room that one person in particular was quite disruptive and boisterous. This is of no fault of the staff at Storm, just one of those things I suppose.
Also, I had the swordfish, which I have had before, however this particular night it was over cooked.
All in all it was kind of an off night at the restaurant but this was just one night.
Overall our experience at Storm has been FABULOUS!
This one night will not change the fact that this will be our go to spot in Asheville for great food.

Our server was very attentive & knowledgeable about food & cocktails! there was lots of 'happy noise'-- the ambiance was cozy & warm.

The only issue was that the online menu didn't match the in house menu. Several items were not available. While i had to change my choice of fish dish from Mahi Mahi to swordfish, i enjpoyed my meal very much.
