We had an early dinner and it was a great experience. I’m horrible at remembering names but the bartender was our waiter and gave a great recommendation on a local beer! The food was great.. I had a pasta with crab dish and my hubby had pork chops!

Service would’ve been given a 5/5 but our table wasn’t ready when we got there so we were told to sit outside and order a drink. We were sitting outside for 30 minutes before any server even came over to us. The food was good though but wish the service was more attentive.

We met friends for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. When we first walked in we thought it looked like a college bar. Once the appetizers arrived we knew we were completely wrong. Crispy Brussels and the Focaccia bread with homemade sauce were fabulous. From fresh pizza pies to fish, we were all very satisfied with our meals.

We were seated in an almost empty dining room and sat for over 10 minutes and still no server. I finally held my menu in the air until a server came over. Our order was incorrect on two separate items although the server was courteous. All that aside, the food was AMAZING!!

My boyfriend and our tow dogs and i came here after seeing plenty of reviews. First, the place is located on a corner in downtown Asheville that is such a great area. Plenty of places around to walk to. The restaurant was so cool and our waitress Kate was amazing. In fact all of the staff we encountered were outstanding. Very friendly and very dog focused too:). The food was so good! The Brussels sprouts were my favorite. We ordered off of a doggy menu and it was fresh fish and sweet potatoes. My dogs loved it and gobbled it down. I love the idea of having dinner with my pups! This place was amazing and i plan to come back when it’s warmer out!

Quick service and great prices especially on cocktails! The portions of the salads were HUGE, but the Brussels appetizer was drowned in the sauce to where it was too salty. The cheese sticks were different but great as well!

Food was ok, but not great. It was a bar atmosphere, so the noise level was to be expected. I got the mushroom pizza, my wife got the meatball pizza. We both tried the brussel sprouts and their Christmas bread apps. The sprouts were saturated in balsamic vinaigrette and the bread was super salty. Not a horrible experience, but not one that leaves me wanting to go back

Food and service were great. A little disappointed when a large group was seated next to us and the restaurant did not enforce the covid protocols with them. Began to feel uncomfortable but otherwise was very happy to have stumbled on the restaurant for dinner.

One of our favorite restaurants we tried! Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to point us in the right direction of where to visit. The food was AMAZING. I had the steak Diane and substituted the mashed potatoes for asparagus with no problems. My husband had shrimp fra diavolo. Neither one was an overwhelmingly large portion, but definitely fair for the price, as they were very fair. We also enjoyed the fried mozzarella. It was pure heaven. It was pretty much a cheese sandwich deep fried in a tempura batter. Like a fair’s fried Oreo but with cheese. It was amazing.

Our server, Graham, was great. The Christmas bread was unexpected and delicious and we appreciated the restaurants guidelines for COVID. We tried local beverages which we loved so much and ended up purchasing a case at a grocery store before driving back home. Overall good place to have a nice meal.
