    Food was generally very good. The charcuterie plate was great as was the sausage appetizer. My daughter’s steak was wonderful, and the flavor of my pork was great, but the meat was dry. Service was a little slow and spotty.

    It’s just OK. We had reservations and showed up on time while another party of 2 somehow got severed before us. When we did finally get seated, it was next to the drafty patio door scrunched next to another party of 2. Last, my order was wrong so my wife ate while I waited for my food. I won’t be compelled to revisit this place when I’m back in town.

    Wow! If you’re lucky enough to visit Rhubarb, you’ll find they source fine ingredients, excel in their mastery of food preparation and provide table service beyond expectations. Every item I ordered (I wanted to order everything on the menu) was amazing! I did take a goat cheese burrata to go and the next morning it was the best breakfast. I’ve eaten at Michelin star restaurants where everything feels robotic. Rhubarb on the other hand, honors special requests and exudes love in every aspect of the dining experience. Thank you Chef and staff. You’re the best!

    First time here and we can’t say enough about it. A++ for everything from service to attentiveness to the *food*. Fantastic, and the best restaurant of our 5 day trip to Asheville. We hope to visit again soon. One ding that I won’t let affect our experience…. They have La Fin Du Monde beer ON TAP!. I’ve never seen it anywhere else served on tap. They brought the beer, we did a clinky clink cheers, and I brought the mug to my lips… only to find the beer was warm. Not cold, not cool, but warm. OK, no biggie, I pretended I was in England enjoying a warm brew. 😎

    My husband and I love a small plate menu so we can try a lot of things. This menu did not disappoint. We ordered about 4 small dishes and really enjoyed them all but the purple eye peas were the star. Sounds odd that something this simple would be so good but it was all in the preparation. It came with the rage sausage the night we dined but it looks like it is on the menu seasonally with other things.

    We chose Rhubarb for Sunday brunch because of all of the great reviews. I would say “Meh” at best. We chose to eat on the patio because it was such a beautiful day, but I do feel that we would have had a better experience if we had dined inside. I will say the fries were very good. Maybe their dinner is the reason for all of the great reviews.

    What an amazing experience. True farm to table food. The menu changes depending on what is available, but we had the seared NC black sea bass fillet. The strawberry rhubarb pie with a pink peppercorn magic shell on the ice cream was out of this world. Oh, and you have to have the pimento cheese hushpuppies with the Comeback sauce. They are a must have! I don't think you can go wrong no matter what you order.

    An absolutely wonderful dining experience. Our party of four had no problems getting reservations for a Monday evening. We had a variety of appetizers (baked oysters, hummus, hush puppies with a pimento cheese) and they were all excellent! Our dinners included the pork collar dish, chicken dish, and flounder dish. All cooked to perfection. We thought no room for dessert, but then decided to share a rhubarb pie served with ice cream. We loved every bite of every dish! The wine list was great, and we were very happy with the selection our server helped us select. Overall, we were very delighted with our dinner experience here and would definitely recommend dinner here.
