Thank you so much for the exceptional service, excellent food and amazing dining experience. We were there on Friday evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our server was attentive, gave great recommendations and took amazing care of us. We loved the added touch of the glass of champagne when we were first seated. Also a great touch to have the chef visit our table.

We come frequently and always find every appetizer and salad great and pretty creative and using local produce. The halibut is awesome well so are the desserts. Service is excellent. Abit pricey but so very very good and outdoor dining is so neat too!

Dinner was perfect! Outstanding views from the terrace . Great service- kudos to Kat for making it a “purrfect” evening. Every dish we had was great- escargot, sashita peppers, strachiatella salad, duck breast and Halibut. Chocolate cake was divine. Chef checked in on us at the end which was a nice personal touch. The very best dining experience we have had in BR.

Absolutely perfect evening in every way. Fortunately we were able to eat outside on a perfect evening. However the dining room looked lovely should we have had to eat there it also looked like it would be a wonderful atmosphere. Look forward to another evening and hopefully a stay there.

Superb, you owe it to yourself to experience this marvelous resturant and its service. Words cannot begin to describe your walk into the elegance of the past. The ambiance of sitting outside overlooking the mtn. tops, the beautifully arranged presentation of every mouthwatering bite, and service that is next to no other. Ask for Jessica, she is one you'll not forget.

Great food in a rustic setting. We had dinner outside on the porch, enjoyed the food and our conversation with the next table. The blankets worked wonders when it turned chilly. Moved indoors for desert and coffee. Great meal.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Restaurant at Gideon Ridge. It was our first time there, but won't be our last time! The service and the food were outstanding. We also greatly appreciated the quiet atmosphere and the amazing view.

The very best restaurant! They have found perfection in every detail and every dish. The location is also magnificent. We had the seafood salad and pate to start. The seafood salad was fresh and tasty and the pate amazing! We each had the pork tenderloin and it was out of this world. It was cooked to the perfect temperature and was tender and the black lentils and asparagus each had their own delicious seasoning, texture and taste. Truly a work of art! We had the flourless chocolate torte and it was the best we’ve ever had. Jessica was our server and helped us with every course selection, was attentive throughout the evening and made the experience wonderful! The Chef also came out twice to make sure everything and everyone was enjoying themselves. Gideon Ridge is perfection!

We stayed at the Inn here and enjoyed dinner on the first night. The chef came to our table and talked to us about the entrees, taking extra time to tell us where the ingredients came from and how they were prepared. The food exceeded our expectations! The lamb sirloin was wonderful and the bananas foster dessert was more than delicious. The service feels like a boutique experience, they are very attentive and accommodating. And the views are spectacular! Beautiful property, very private and peaceful with lots of flowers and landscape. Will definitely be back!

A lovely meal with great food and great service. The wine list is overpriced and the only food glitch was that the crime brûlée we were served (citrus) was not what we ordered (coffee) and our server’s only comment was, “oh, I think they switched it out.”

The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge is a treasure. Beautiful location and views, lovely dining area setting, friendly and attentive service, and truly exceptional food. The thoughtfully created menu was executed to perfection on every part of every course. This is one of those places where you'll dream of returning. Anyone visiting the Asheville NC area should make sure to dine here at least once - you will not regret it!
