The Bull and Beggar
Delicious food, incredible service, and a super nice staff. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!
Surprising creative cuisine served in a warehouse. The focus is on small plates which allows for wonderful mix and match but note that the cost adds up quickly.
Went for burger night while on vacation. I love burgers and this did not disappoint! I need to practice to get thin burgers medium rare. Waitress was very good / drinks were good. Worth the walk! Uber was not too efficient- so we ended up walking both ways. Raclette was good but the cheese was not right consistency but good to see on a menu!
One of Asheville's most consistently great restaurants!
Very authentic French food. The atmosphere was very quaint and open. Really great experience.
So so good, will be back on our next Asheville trip!
I recently dined here with my husband to celebrate. The food was unique and delicious, and the restaurant was quiet with a great atmosphere. The service was also exceptional. Everyone was very professional and helpful. I'll definitely make this a stop for any special occasion.
This was my second time dining at The Bull and Beggar and it didn't disappoint. I am an oyster lover and they have a wonderful selection from Mass, Wash and PEI. I went with the PEI and they were wonderful. They were super fresh, and so salty briny!... Just like they were pulled right from the ocean. Soooo good! My friend had a combo of clams and oysters and the clams were just as good as the oysters.
I chose a Champagne cocktail and my friend chose a Cosmopolitan, and both were excellently made. A bit expensive, but still excellent.
Instead of entrees we went with a few tapas and split a lobster roll. The Grilled Octopus was exceptionally prepared and was accompanied by a Romesco sauce and we ate every last morsel. Lobster roll was a bit on the small side but delicious.
Will definitely be back soon.
We had a lovely meal here after a walk around The Arts District. Everything was delicious but the Pork Chop was particularly outstanding.
As always the food and service were impeccable. One of the bests restaurants anywhere! Can not recommend enough.
We had never been before, so we thought the server might give us some insights into the brunch menu. He didn't so we asked and received a so-so run down of the highlights. The food was delicious. The portions were small, but for appropriate for the level of richness. The soft melette was rich and creamy, the bone marrow side was good, but I would recommend that the bread not be so buttered -- it took away from the flavor of the marrow. Overall, it was OK. Will definitely try again!
This is one of the finest restaurants in Asheville, which is saying a lot. The dishes are creative and delicious. Excellent service. Great cocktails. Not easy to get into due to its popularity. We arranged weeks ahead for our large group and the manager was great about making sure we were taken care of. If you need a place for a special occasion, this is it!
Exceptional waiter very good food little bit high price point for every day eating. Cozy and nice for special event or date. Would recommend to a friend.
we brought our three kids to dinner and the waitstaff was thoughtful and kind to the kids. everything we ordered was delicious--the lobster roll and the filet were special standouts but the peach salad and artichoke salad were both impeccable. altogether a beautiful, balanced, thoughtful, gorgeously executed menu.
Went for burger night---was great and fries were terrific too.
Evening was less than enjoyable as the person at the table next to us talked at a loud roar the entire time we were there. Made it almost impossible to hear my husband. Felt sorry for her dinner partner who rarely got to get a word in either. Know it wasn't the restaurant's fault, but the 2-top tables ARE really close together downstairs.
Fantastic food, eclectic decor and terrific service!
The food was cooked to perfection with such an amazing array of flavers. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere most pleasant. Believe we have found a new favorite.
The burger was awesome although it definitely wasn’t medium rare. One of the guests at our table ordered there’s well done and mine looks exactly the same. You only get two choices. Still, not complaining. Quality was top notch!
Monday nights are always super busy and energetic due to the burger bargain. We went for the 1 tier raw seafood platter. Never disappoints!
In a city with many special eating and drinking establishments, Bull and Beggar never fails to deliver. The menu is always fun and just adventurous enough and the craft cocktails are as good as any in Asheville. Somehow they manage offer a large assortment of fantastic fresh oysters - east and west coast-on every visit.
Tonight was another great dining experience, consistent with other visits. Highly recommended.
We lived the aesthetic of this restaurant immediately and the hostess was so accommodating when we requested a table on the second floor. Thank goodness because Daniel was our server as he did an amazing job making us feel welcome. He was attentive and kind and made the entire evening perfect for us. We shared several dishes as it was difficult to choose! Delicious and worth every penny. We’ll be going back on our next trip to Asheville for sure!
The food is creatively prepared and delicious!!. The server was knowledgeable with the menu and made great suggestions. Atmosphere was nice but not too stuffy. Loved the round tables for dining. It’s a must!
Awesome! Shared the 34oz bone in ribeye. Presentation was stunning...came out with a flaming bundle of thyme! It was delish, as was the zucchini gratin. The potatos were the weak link, would recommend asking for a substitution. Oh and I forgot the octopus...yummmm
Nice ambience and location, but we spent $100 and left hungry. Oysters and clams both were miniscule in size, as was the lobster roll. Delicious but definitely not a good value.
Our waiter was professional, friendly and efficient. He didn’t hover so we could relax and enjoy our cocktails and then our dinner order. The filet was delicious and tender. Cooked to perfection. The peel and eat shrimp were large and very tasty. They were served with real shredded horseradish to add to the cocktail sauce. Overall a good experiencee. We sat upstairs and it was quiet and cozy.
Absolutely outstanding service, food and ambiance! Perfect dinner after touring the Biltmore all day. Great experience during our weekend girls’ getaway.
The server was extremely professional and knowledgeable, plus made extra effort to make this an enjoyable dining experience. A friend from Austin, TX was with us, who remarked that this was better than most spots in their foodie town. The dishes were excellent, including the Halibut, Filet Mignon and the NY Strip Special topped with olives. Cocktails were very creative and tasty. A lively feel made this a fun dining experience. Loved it!
Unique location, wonderful ambiance. The service was fantastic and the food was even better.
Attentive, friendly service in a cool, brick and wood industrial space. The halibut was perfectly prepared - tender, moist and flavorful.
Wonderful place. Was recommended as the best in Asheville and it is easy to believe. The array of oysters were great. The octopus was excellent...the service was the best we’ve had in quite some time. It is a fine dining experience with a comfortable friendly laid back atmosphere. We were told that the filet was the best in the city and it was definitely one of the best I’ve ever had. The staff went out of their way to make the experience great. I couldn’t recommend this place more. Our very best dining experience in Asheville and we had a few really good meals...but it wasn’t even close. The Bull and the Beggar blew the others away. A one of a kind place to thoroughly enjoy a spectacular meal.
Great Service. Great food. Great ambiance.
Great brunch at the Bull and Beggar. Interesting cocktails that were delicious. Each member of my party had something different. We we very happy with our choices!
Great food and wonderful service! Love oyster happy!
We love This restaurant. My husband and I came here during our honeymoon and have been talking about it for the past year. So when we went to Asheville for the day we just had to come back. It never disappoints.
Great food and service!
Highly recommend for a lovely brunch experience! Excellent Bloody Mary's and delicious food!
Amazing brunch - can’t wait to visit for dinner!
Everything was great UNTIL they served my entree. The wine was delicious and the salad with buttermilk dressing was amazing. My poached fish which took up the entire dinner plate was presented whole in parchment paper. There was no place for the discarded paper which I carefully placed on the table until I was able to request an additional plate from a server (not ours). I then proceeded to-de skin and de-bone the entire fish. It looked incredibly unappetizing and gross. After working on it for about ten minutes I was able to take my first bite whereupon I had to remove a bone. The next two or three bites were the same. I did not take another bite. My husband shared a couple of bites of his delicious filet with me but I gave up on the fish. Very disappointing! When our waitress finally came by to check on us to inquire how everything was, I told her I was surprised that I would have to work so hard on my dinner and she then said she would have been happy to do all of it for me. REALLY? That should have been without question. We have dined in many restaurants where they do that for the customer preemptively after the fish is “Presented”. Not the elegant dining experience we were looking forward to! We won’t be back to the Bull and Beggar for a while.
Good ambiance and service, cool little restaurant in a busy row of business. Shared the raw platter with the table, great selection of oysters and other sea food would defiantly recommend. Two of us got entrees and two got two small plates. All to food was good and the portions were substantial, if you get an entree there is probably no need for a side. A bit on the expensive side but will recommend to friends looking for a good night out.
