    Recommend getting here early. The menu is small and by the time we arrived for our 8pm reservation, they were sold out of all that evening’s entrees. Although we were not told this until we were seated, with drinks, and ordering off the food menu. We were offered braised rabbit, which was not on the menu, as the only option. Oysters never showed, presumably also sold out, but our server didn’t have the heart to tell us. The cheese and scallops were good, as were the drinks. Overall a disappointing dining experience in a town with several great restaurants.

    We enjoyed our drink and the bar with bartenders who clearly knew what they were doing and were very pleasant to chat with and discuss drinks. We moved to a table for dinner and had a very nice meal. The menu is not extensive but we liked all of the choices. The service was also excellent. The ambiance of Vidl is warm, inviting and unique.

    Food focused fun. Don’t come expecting a steak or whole fish. The grazing style menu was perfect for an over-fed Asheville weekend. Carefully prepared, creative and absolutely delicious. Love the groovy bathrooms too.

    Weekend with friends. This by far is /was the best tasting food we have eaten in a very long time. The portions are on the smaller side so just order extra dishes. The waiter was super nice the restaurant had a great vibe. The bathroom lobby was very groovy …💯‼️❤️❤️❤️ this place. Afterwards go next door to the funkatorium for beer/cider flights

    The fondue bread crust was incredible. Variety of foods for dipping including apples, beets and small potatoes as well as the usual bread crusts. Two of us ordered monkfish and two of us ordered the lamb belly which basically was a ramen based dish. It was excellent but also interesting-contained one poached egg. They did not hesitate bringing us samples of wine to taste before deciding on the bottles to order.

    SUPERB. I was a little “eh” about the limited menu. Nothing jumped out at me. Despite, my husband and I ordered several small dishes and were completely blown away by how delicious every single thing was! Do it. Order EVERYTHING. With Vidl Coup draft wine which is also one of my most favorite wines I have ever tasted. Without a doubt we will be back.

    Can’t recommend this place enough. Wonderful libations, delicious (and filling!) bites that were perfect for group sharing, amazing aesthetic (the barrel booths are SO cool), reasonably priced, right in the heart of downtown, and fast, courteous service! Looking forward to returning when I am back in Asheville!

    My first review after many meals with open table… My husband and I, both successful professionals, brought our 3 yo for an “early bird” dinner. We came with activities, iPad, etc., for our kiddo, and we sat quietly in the corner — very appreciative and gracefully. Despite the fact we were dressed nicer than any other patrons, including our child, our waitress deterred us from any wine that was “not economical” (her words) and refused to offer us dessert. The limited menu was “good” but nothing too special. Enjoyed the collard greens and cauliflower. We went to sunshine sammies for dessert instead and it was lovely - worth the walk!

    The restaurant is gorgeous and the bathrooms are fun. The me I was super limited. It was basically only shareable small apps like charcuterie, bread, olives, Brussels sprouts, & cauliflower. The only real “meal” option was a fried chicken bucket with Mac & cheese, and another side or 2, maybe collards? We each ordered a guac margarita and it takes like bbq. Only 1 out of the 5 of us liked the margarita. We had our margaritas, ordered a bread plate abs then left to eat dinner elsewhere. The bread was amazing. It would be a great place to meet up and snack but it’s definitely hot a dinner spot.

    We enjoyed our dining experience. Intimate dining in a large wine barrel type booth. It was quite romantic. I didn’t enjoy my wine flight but it’s more because I’m not a wine drinker and was trying to expand my palate. The fried chicken bucket meal was amazing. Chicken came out almost too hot— hubby burnt his lip but we were warned... just hard to resist the deliciousness. Man, that chicken skin should be an appetizer on its own :) mac &cheese was a tad dry. Those biscuits and the sauce were my fave. Hubby enjoyed his gin cocktails. We enjoyed our meal & the service was top notch. Thank you!

    Nice music, decor and ambiance. Food was okay , wine was not good at all and our server was the most unenthusiastic, non-helpful bore of a server I’ve ever encountered. We were excited to try this place to entertain out of town friends, but very disappointing. Won’t be going back, now I see why it was the only place without a line outside.
