With that being said, service was slow with the waitress only checking on us twice. The food was pretty good, though it compares to chain restaurant like TGIFriday's or Chile's. I would only recommend this place if you can't get in somewhere else.

This may be why our very poor review is not like all the others who gave excellent reviews. We tried it out for restaurant week. Service was pleasant. Food was so bad, we wish we could give them 1/2 or zero stars. - Chicken wings were over done. - Salad greens had freezer burn. - Steak was 1/3 fat. Plus the "medium well" was only on the outside. Looks like they precook the steak and just burn the outside to the level you want. What meat was between all the fat was red! - The fish was overcooked. - We had early reservations and they were already out of their #1 dessert. The other dessert was bland. Hope they rise to the level of the other good reviews. However, we will not give them another try to find out.

We were very pleasantly surprised with the service, food and quality - they definitely hold up against other WoodFires that we have dined at. We were able to eat Christmas dinner there (thank you!) and the special (which we both had) was great (taste, portions, components and value). We will be back!

That is the best I can say. I ordered a NY strip steak and it was pretty thin and I would rate it fair at best. My wife ordered a salad and it was good in her words. All in all, I wouldn't go back. Your eating in the hotel bar and the food and ambiance is not worth it. FYI, we were not staying in the hotel. If we did stay in the hotel, I'd leave to eat somewhere else.

Tucked away at the Holiday Inn, this quiet yet unassuming restaurant serves food better than any 5 star restaurant I’ve visited. The service was excellent. The food was exemplary. I had the Atlantic Salmon and it was cooked to perfection. My side item was a summer mix of squash, zucchini and grilled onions. Our server was very attentive and continued to thank us for coming in and told us that the restaurant was one of Asheville’s best kept secret. I concur. We will definitely return upon our next visit!

Extremely glad I did, experience was awesome. Not normally a NY Strip person so I was a little skeptical about ordering it but as the waitress mentioned it was wonderful. Researched places in Asheville to eat and this one definitely lived up to previous reviews. Absolutely would go back!

I'll admit I was concerned when I saw that it was in a Holiday Inn--but it turns out my concern wasn't warranted. Great food and service!

The menu that is given to customers at the restaurant is vastly different than their online menu. No steaks, no ribs, no salmon, no shrimp and pasta. Just a burger, chicken sandwich and chicken tenders. If they have a "Limited menu", they need to update their website. I went here with my wife for an Anniversary dinner and was very disappointed.

We made a reservation not knowing this and when I pulled up to it, I was almost going to pass. Then I noticed all the locals going in there and I thought...Hmmmmm, maybe this place is good. We hauled are starving and exhausted butts into this place, and low and behold, it was pretty darn good. We opted for some salads, burgers, BLT and my buddy got the ribs. All of our food was excellent, hot and fresh. The libations were good also. Lesson learned....

Ambiance and food very misleading. Come on it’s a restaurant at the Holiday Inn Express. Would go back for another chocolate martini but that’s it. Bar food is stretching it.

It is inside a rustic, very nice, Holiday Inn (don't be turned off by that), and well known by locals, but not to the throngs of Asheville tourists. Food was very good, our server Pablo was outstanding, and price was half of downtown Asheville restaurants. Safety protocols were all followed as well.

Unfortunately, in Asheville the restaurants book up so quickly that there were very few options left. I was a bit disappointed to find that this restaurant is actually in the Holiday Inn. However, the ambiance in this restaurant feels warm and inviting and the food was absolutely delicious. My son and his girlfriend had steaks. I had the locally caught trout. I can be quite fussy about fish, because I don't like anything "fishy" tasting, but the trout was cooked to perfection. The service was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Asheville.
