My daughter’s birthday and staff could not have been better. We enjoy Rhubarb every time we come to Asheville. They never disappoint! I
One of the very best meals we have had in a long time!!
Will definitely go back. The trout was incredible as was our halibut starter. Staff was friendly and not overbearing. Exceptional service.
An amazing restaurant! The food was incredible!
Amazing farm to table food with equally amazing craft cocktails
Excellent spot in downtown with vegetarian friendly options
Superb food and service, as always. Rhubarb never disappoints.
Food was good but not as amazing as expected. Service was a little slow.
Incredible dishes and lively, chic atmosphere. I loved sitting at the chef’s bar and watching them make everything. Great options for vegetarians like me as well!
Great locavore spot. The crew here does a killer job of showcasing NC ingredients, especially veg.
We had a great dinner at Rhubarb, a small modern southern restaurant in the heart of Asheville, walking distance from our hotel. We sat by the open kitchen which allowed us to appreciate the hustle and simpatico of the team. My wife and I shared small plates and a main. We enjoyed a local cheese plate that was really delicious and a "sharing salad of local lettuces" which was really tasty. The walnuts that accompanied the salad were so fresh tasting as to be heavenly (an odd thing to say about walnuts, to be sure).
For our mains we shared a sliced ribeye for two with collard greens, fried wild mushrooms, and a delicate and delicious sauce and...I think...turmip puree. Absolutely spot on cook on the ribeye and my wife LOVED the fried mushrooms.
Our cocktails were quite good as well, albeit unusual (in a good way).
Service was casual and attentive. Would definitely come back here again and if you're looking for a cool place for some elevated southern cooking, this is a great place to dine.
Food was innovative and fresh. Cocktails and wine were perfect. We will definitely be back!
My 2 adult daughters and I had a wonderful time at Rhubarb. Our waitress was very efficient in her explanation of the menu and we easily found 6 tapas-style dishes we wanted to try. There was a huge variety of dishes on offer, all imaginative and inviting. The striped bass ended up our favourite but all of our selections were very interesting, flavorful and delicious. This was the highlight of our Asheville trip.
Tasty locally sourced soul food (friend had a healthy market veg option that was delicious too). Wonderful service.
Their cocktails were absolutely delicious! The food was amazing. The desserts were our favorite! Nice environment and very friendly staff.
We enjoyed our meal in a lovely setting. The food was very good and pretty creative and the service just adequate.
Dishes were so salty we thought about sending them back. Paying $20 for a small plate of greens, beans, and three mushroom caps is never easy to swallow. Would not recommend.
The food really needs work. Quality ingredients do not make up for poor execution. Turnip and Carrot dish was completely bland with only a trace of the promised pesto. Desperately needed salt, acid, and a textural contrast of some kind. Red shrimp and grit cake, on the other hand, was extremely over salted. All dishes sampled were quite underwhelming, as were the two wines sampled. At this price point, much better options exist.
Amazing trout!!! Best fish we’ve had! But the shrimp were just as incredible -I thought I already had a high standard for seafood but now I’m afraid I’m spoiled :(
Every item we received was made with extreme care and was deliciously prepared. From the cocktails to the main plates. The only complaint we had was that the waitress kept trying to upsell us. I understand it is their jobs to make recommendations, but I do not need a face made at me when I decline dessert.
Terrible service and mediocre food.
Great service and the food was amazing and creative
Spent the weekend celebrating my birthday in Asheville. Rhubarb was my favorite meal there. Will definitely be back. ❤️
We have enjoyed meals there in the past but food- especially pork loin and soup -were subpar. Our waitress was very sweet though.
Great food and service.
Only my second time dining here, but it still qualifies as my favorite restaurant in Asheville. Service was outstanding, as was the food. Comfortable space with creative cuisine. Can't wait to go back.
Max was wonderful. Service was fast. Food and drinks were amazing!
Visiting Asheville and stayed downtown. Wonderful to be able to walk to such a great place!
a return visit, and, once again, Rhubarb delivers good food and excellent service.
Great food and atmosphere. Everything they brought to the table was delicious
Made reservations for my wife and I’s anniversary and I asked for them to put candles or flowers on the the table. Neither happened, and the servers didn’t even mention anything about our anniversary. Not that they have to do it, it just would’ve been nice!
Other than that, great food and ambience.
Each course was excellent. The preserved plate was creative and varied and offered a balance to the fried hominy.
The steak was great. Rare steak done right. My wife enjoyed the wood fired whole rainbow trout. Perfectly cooked and de-boned at the table by our server who was very attentive and helpful
service was excellent
food was great; especially sweet potato soup
we had seat in window; very cool
bar staff were very accommodating during out short wait
Service was excellent. Our server was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. A cheese plate with a great selection of regional cheeses was very good. Unfortunately the food went downhill from there. The final shared dish, a steak, was quite rare and we sent it back. It came back a couple of minutes later with a new dollop of sauce on top and it was cold and had obviously not been even reheated, much less cooked more. I guess that was the chef/cook telling us that we didn’t know how we wanted our steak prepared.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. However, the portions were tiny, incredibly tiny. It's not a tapas place and they don't call them small plates but, with the exception of the 1/2 chicken, our entrees were ridiculously small. We were warned by the wait person, so it wasn't her fault - we were still surprised by how little food we got for the money.
Sat at the kitchen top table. Amazing!
Wonderful restaurant in downtown Asheville with some interesting veggie dishes. The service as excellent. We actually prefer Benne, another Flair restaurant off of Eagle better.
The veggie dishes were just OK, with my carrot/turnip dish being undercooked. The flavors were interesting, but would probably not order it again. The dessert was outstanding, as was the service.
Great, honest service. Our waitress steered us toward amazing dishes and wonderful wine. Highly recommend!
No open table points for reserving so what's the point of being open table if the diner ft ets no perk? The prices were very high for the amount of food you get. Food taste was super great.
Our waitress was very scarce and came by very infrequently. It was bunch time and was not busy, although slow service. The other waitress was at her two tables quite frequently and one time asked us if we needed our server. Yes. Take away the slow service and this place is very nice.
Brunch was excellent!
