Amazing brunch menu! I got the fried chicken biscuit it was a huge portion and amazing flavor! The Bloody Mary looked amazing at the table next to me too!!!
Lovely food and lovely aervice
Rhubarb was a cute restaurant in a good location. The food was incredibly pricey for a mediocre meal. For example - we paid $16 for 6 mussels in a broth. I would say it was fine but for the price, definitely not worth it.
Reservation for 8.15. Table wasn't ready until 8.45.
Adventure in dining. Our group of 4 gave food mixed reviews. Food was "trying too hard". Not one traditional item on the table but sometimes food you recognize is good.
A roommate from college was in town for work. We planned a meal out. I had not been to Rhubard in several years and decided to take my friend there for our meal and catch up time together. I had forgotten how excellent the food is. And to me, it seems even better. My buddy is a world traveler. And he eats in some of the best restaurants in the world and in the large cities of the U.S. He was blown away by the quality and taste of the food. The server helped me negotiate around my dairy allergy. We both had fish, he the trout and myself the tilefish. We shared a large greens salad and two large vegetables. The vegetables were done rightly with texture and their natural fresh taste at the fullness of quality local veggies. Our server was very helpful. In fact, when she was in the middle of refilling our water glasses my friend asked a specific question about one of the house wines. She answered the detailed question with not a moment of thought. She is that familiar with the wines which I would say is very unusual. He was very pleased with the choice of his second glass of wine as it paired with his fish and the vegetables. We both left saying that Rhubarb is on the top of our list for a time in the near future. Wes in Asheville.
My husband and I found the food to be overly heavy and greasy. The flavors were nice... but not quite on the mark. Perhaps we didn’t order well.
Wonderful dinner. Busy place. Definitely need reservations.
Our server was awesome!! Oysters so fresh, loved the three sauce choices. We had a great meal and can’t wait to come back!
Incredible food in a warm atmosphere!
I love a good farm-to-table restaurant--and Rhubarb is a good one. We sat outside, and the music from the street (lots of drumming) made it hard to talk for a while, but then it rained (hard), and the music stopped, and many diners moved inside (it was a really hard rain that made sitting near the railing a little dangerous if you wanted to stay dry), but we were away from the edge and stuck it out. It was actually nice after the rain. The food was good--the burrata was amazing (though I could have used some more of the accompaniments (rhubarb and strawberries)), the meatballs were very good, but the mushroom/bean cassoulet was a little disappointing--not too flavorful in the end. All in all, a very good dinner. I'd definitely go back and recommend it to others.
Rhubarb is a very nice restaurant with very interesting dishes, mostly very well made. Limited choices in coffee, only regular coffee. We sat on the porch with our dog, it was a bit tight but worked great. Good location.
Rhubarb lived up to its reputation. The food was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, although timing was a little off, we felt rushed even though the place was not crowded. There is a chefs table which looked like a great spot to be. Asheville has many choices and this should be tops on the list!
My husband just said: "One of my favorite restaurants ever!" Everything is amazing! From the Oysters Benton to the variety of cheeses, the lamb, pork belly and everything else it's incredible! Eric was perfect at making recommendations. Love it and will be back asap!
Wonderful dinning is a lovely settings. Staff was friendly & helpful. Will be going back again.
Our meal was excellent. We enjoyed the evening at Rhubarb!
Would definitely return
We enjoyed celebrating my birthday at Rhubarb with some amazing food!
We came for dinner and only had 1 appetizers. We found the menu difficult to understand. The outside seating is very loud and non-appealing with the street traffic
Great food and good service! Brunch was amazing.
Lucky to sit outside on a beautiful night in Asheville. My wife had an excellent steak dish and I had delicious, fresh trout. I did not expect such wonderful oysters in western NC, but we had them. A very talented and not too loud street musician made for a very fun evening.
Referred to by a co-worker, Rhubarb is a delicious farm to table restaurant, with unique flavor to some brunch classics. Anything with the gravy is a must!
The overall experience was great. We had specialty cocktails, ordered multiple smalls and enjoyed each and every item. Service was very professional and unhurried. We were able to order additional courses after each course which is not always the case and we appreciated that.
Always very enjoyable. The chef was very accommodating and came up with some off of the menu dishes.
The food was incredible. Fresh and satisfying, our best meal on vacation. They were so friendly to our toddler...very accommodating for families who still want a nice meal out. Really exceeded our expectations.
Informed, helpful, and friendly service.
In town for a wedding and decided to try Rhubarb on a friend’s recommendation. Cocktails were good, cool atmosphere. My quail was fantastic, but the brown butter bourbon sauce could have been reduced a little more. I’d get uneven mouthfuls of sugary sweet or a shot of bourbon Rather than a smooth blend - it was a little disorienting. Husband’s trout was good and he seemed happy with it. Dessert was okay.
We were a somer group remembering a family member who had passed recently & our waiter, Luke, was outstanding, attending to our every need. The food was great too. Nothing more important than good employees.
This was our second visit to Rhubarb, and it wasn’t that great of an experience either. (Our first encounter involved service issues, total apathy on management’s part and good but not great food.). So, we tried it again. Our appetizer of oysters stuffed w Benton ham etc were tasty but dry. Our app of Royal Reds was too salty even without the Benton ham which I told our sever though I did indicate I would eat it. (No comment from her though she was very pleasant.)The pork loin was a tiny bit dry and the gnudi unremarkable. Probably the standout was the side of peas w a mint pesto. Not a bad meal, but certainly not exceptional and I expect more from a John Fleer place and at that price point. (PS I had indicated it was a bday meal when I made the reso, but it was not brought up.)
Superb service and excellent food. We always enjoy dining here. The trout was delicious, but the snow pea pods were absolutely wonderful.
Attempted to go for the “Sunday Dinner”. I was able to make reservations for it only to find out when I arrived that they don’t do it on holiday weekends. I didn’t see this noted anywhere on the website. The restaurant was very busy and it seemed the result was very slow service. The server was not very friendly at all, it would be nice to see a smile. The food was OK but nothing memorable. Overall experience was disappointing, maybe I had too high expectations.
This is a very farm to table, foodie-type place. Sometimes that's what you're looking for, sometimes it's a little over the top. I made a reservation specifically requesting the patio since I have dogs. I got there and was told that the patio is first-come, first-served. While you could not specify outdoor seating when you made the reservation, I would have appreciated a phone call telling me that as it was hot and my dogs needed some shade pronto. That said, they did work us in very quickly since we did not have the option of sitting indoors. They brought the dogs plenty of water and the food was very good. Highly recommend the brown butter and clove cocktail. It's a twist on an old fashioned but with a buttery note that is delicious.
The food was delicious and the staff were great. The covered patio was perfect for our dogs and they brought out a water bowl. Will be back
Food and level of service is outstanding. They have overhead fans which made it very comfortable on a hot day to sit outside. Highly recommend!
We normally have great service here but our waitress forgot some things on our order. My food was cold and I asked for it to be heated up which ended up taking about 15 minutes. By then, everyone else in my party was done with their food.
Brilliant date spot with excellent food in a rustic dinning room mixing a Cafe with and wood fired oven and industrial walls. Definitely recommend.
We had an outstanding experience with artfully crafted and delicious dishes served by a very professional and attentive server.
Food was very good. Best roasted chicken and “brownie” dessert. Great twist on classic dishes.
The food was okay - not as great as expected based on reviews
Great meal and location. Easy walk from all the best hotels and service was perfect
