A wonderful meal. Great service and extensive drink selection. Cannot wait to return. If we lived in AVL we'd be there once a week, or more! The Cote de Buofe is among the finest cuts of beef my wife and I have ever enjoyed and we've tried many!!
The preparation and presentation is top shelf. The prime steak houses could learn a thing or two from The Bull and Beggar. Our "must visit" place when in WNC.

Wonderful food and beverages. Our bill totaled more than expected so we will choose this restaurant only on special occasions.

We are in Asheville for our Anniversary and friends recommended The Bull and Beggar for a nice celebratory meal... we are so glad they did. Everything was absolutely delicious (food and cocktails) and service was impeccable. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant as well.

Robin was our server again And she did a great job as always. The service provided is such that you are never looking around for anyone but don’t feel bothered. She makes great recommendations. This is a favorite for us. I like to try the seasonal small plates and my husband sticks to the filet.

My husband and I have visited two years in a row for our anniversary and have been back multiple times in between with friends. This is hands down one of our favorite menus and wine lists. If you are visiting Asheville this place is a must.

30 minutes to get a drink (after ordered which took 10 minutes)...because the bar got slammed....lame...they brought me a carrot and a radish to say sorry for the loon minute wait on the drink...yes a carrot and a radish!

Food okay too good. Clams and oysters were incredibly tiny. Steak was good. Cant say about dessert as I was offered any.

This place has a limited menu and inadequate staff. Could be very good but they have a LONG way to go on getting their act together.

Look elsewhere until they improve.

Dinner with friends on a Sat night...2 couples. We had wine and cocktail. My cocktail Relampago was awesome. A mezcal+tequila w/bitters truly one of a kind. My wife had filet mignon, I had bucatini w/tuna, hush puppies. Our friends had suckling pig and halibut. All food was good. The pasta had a great sauce and tuna was mild. Even though this was in the small plate category I thought the portion was too small for price. I tried some of my wife’s steak...it was very good also with good sauce. We all shared the tiramisu and it was great as well. Cool venue with good vibe. I consider the only shortcomings were a very loud noise level due to concrete floor with no sound control. So loud we had to shout so it takes away from the experience. Also, food portions were small for the price.

Monday Night is Burger night. I had the cheese burger with grilled onions and pickles which was very tasty and medium rare as ordered. It was very good, served with excellent French fries, a bargain at $9.99. My partner has the Octopus which was in an excellent sauce and very tender. A very enjoyable night out.

Finally found a place to eat in Asheville that is worth going to again and again. Everyone says the food in Asheville is amazing but we have found most of the places with top reviews leave us wondering why. The Bull and Beggar is outstanding. Everything was great and the food was amazing. Only concern, the subtext writing on the menu was so small there was no chance I could read it!!

Very disappointed...planned a special Birthday dinner for my boyfriend and we ended up leaving after the first course due to lack of service and execution of our first course and drinks. Server seemed to have her focus on providing better service to a larger dinner party across the way.

This used to be our go-to celebration place for the amazing steak and salad. The last few times haven't been great experiences. We let them know we were celebrating an anniversary. The food was good, though rich in oils. The service was very inattentive throughout and we didn't feel taken care of for a special event.

Great food, service was just ok because our drinks and plates were not brought our in order. Two main criticisms are 1. the music was HORRIBLE. 70's top 40 trash from Spotify and they would not change it despite 3 complaints. Also, looking around at the windows, ceiling, air ducts (which I do in restaurants) there was a lot of dust and cobwebs. For the price the place should be spotless, impecable service and music that is well selected

Made a reservation, received a confirmation email and phone call. Great! Arrived on time, they said we did not have a reservation. Asked who called me? No apologies nothing. Showed him my online reservation confirmation, then he seated us. They don’t serve tea or coke. Very limited menu. Overpriced

Liked the style and the food we ordered. Would preferred more options of small plates though. Was not happy with being stuck in the back corner where the wait staff were constantly going back and forth which was quite distracting and our waiter was preoccupied most of the time. Reservations were at 8 but our Entree didn’t come out until 9:30.

Overall it was nice but I have experienced better at that price point.

Way too far up on the “hipster” scale. Asked for steak medium rare, was cold and red at the center. My guest had the halibut, that was almost too salty to eat. But at least I can tell people I was there!!
