The appetizers were delicious and filling. Everything was perfect. Got there early so parking was not a problem.

Enjoyed our visit. Crab soup, fattoush, and crispy shrimp were all very good.

We went for Valentine's Day and it was overpriced compared to their normal menu. If you go make sure it isn't a holiday, other than that everything was excellent

I went with two colleagues and we had the bento boxes for lunch and the food was super delicious! Will definitely come back again and try the other flavors.

Excellent Place. Food was well prepared, flavorful with lots of texture. Service was excellent. Andrea was great! Suggested a wine special that was very good. I had pink snapper that was well prepared with green beans and sweet potato wedges with an avocado hummus. My wife had scallops that were also well prepared with excellent sides. Desserts looked great but did not have room. Next time! We will be back!

My wife and I were in Asheville for a vacation, and we made a point to visit this restaurant, and were wonderfully pleased with the results.

Good Mediterranean food. Many choices, great wait staff, friendly host. A bit salty for my taste but wouldn't deduct points for that. Parking can be a bit difficult.

Had not been to Rezaz since change in ownership. We think it is as good, if not better. One of us had the special Restaurant Week menu and one of us ordered off the regular dinner menu. The Moroccan Chopped Salad and the Poached Pear Salad were both outstanding - perfect. Entrees were Chicken Bisteeyah and Seared Scallops. The chicken dish was fair - a bland mushy mixture which was supposed to contain chicken & vegetables. It really didn't have much taste, but was wrapped in a beautiful, light, crisp wonderful phyllo dough. The scallops were perfect - large and tender. Not certain what was underneath - tasted like some kind of sweet potato mixture. Again, not much discernable taste. For dessert, we split the Keneffa & Almond Pastry Cream. It was delicious - light and sweet (but not too sweet). Perfect, as we just wanted something light & sweet to finish up on. Our server, Steven was great. He knew the menu and made several good suggestions. He also had very good timing - didn't rush us, but we knew he was aware of how far along we were n the meal. He's a gem! The lightened up decor and Constance Williams art on the walls and appropriately understated music enhanced the atmosphere. All in all, we had a wonderful time and will be back again in the near future.

Rezaz never disappoints. Try one of the filling and creative Bento Boxes for lunch with wide choice of wines by the glass. The waitstaff is professional and friendly. Dinner is wonderful too! Best reasonably priced food in Biltmore Village!

We decided to go for restaurant week. Friend had the osso bucco over risotto. It was a bit on the heavy side but the meat was cooked well. I started with the pear and arugula salad. It is always a great bet. For dinner I had the curried mussels. It was rather disappointing there was no bread suitable to enjoying the broth which was very good. Nice wine list and we shared a good bottle of rioja. All in all, a good evening. Rezaz is dependable.
