Rhubarb serves seasonal, regional American fare, sourced from nearby farms and dairies. Acclaimed chef John Fleer, formerly of Blackberry Farm, and his team craft a daily-changing menu including wood-fired dishes, plates made for sharing, house-baked breads, and other rustic creations. A thoughtful wine list showcasing natural and biodynamic wines and a full bar round out the offerings. Rhubarb asks that parties of 6 or more please contact the restaurant directly. We are closed every Tuesday.

Amazing restaurant and good atmosphere. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the each cheese we got in the beginning and picking a wine. Can’t wait to go back when we visit Asheville again!

The entire experience was fantastic. Our server was knowledgeable and gave recommendations to accompany based on what we wanted on the menu. The meal was memorable. Lamb leg is the way to go with the preserves plate and cheese plate as well. Music was fun and funky. The ambiance is very Pinterest-esque but it fits the space and service. It fits Asheville. A phenomenal experience overall.

Good and interesting food. Nice dining experience. Shrimp was a little overcooked and seasoning on hominy was lacking. But overall we enjoyed our meal.

Everyone from the hostess to the serving staff were friendly and helpful. The building is small, so reserve a table.

Just don’t order the whole trout! I was told it would be 4 pounds!! It was so small i couldn’t eat it because the bones were so small!! every bite had a very fine bone i couldn’t eat it, I’m usually really good about filleting my own fish! I sent it back!!We were not even offered a free dessert.

We had a pleasant evening at Rhubarb, it was New Years Eve and I was able to make a reservation just the night before. They have a nice somewhat eclectic menu and the beer and cocktail selection is interesting and well thought out.
Overall good experience, I would recommend to a friend and I would dine here again.

Overrated. We had cocktails which were great. Ordered the cheese board and pimento pups which were nothing special (the sauce you dip them in was good). I had to ask about the pups because they hadn’t come out 15 minutes after the table beside us who ordered after us got them. Ordered the steak and it came out cold and undercooked. Sent it back and the brought out the same steak still undercooked. Wife got the chicken which was served in a large pan and was fine but nothing special. Small portions and underwhelming.

The service was great! The food and drinks were good, but I think they're a little overpriced for what you get.

We drive berween SC and TN a lot and three times we have stopped at Rhubarb for dinner. We love it! The food and service are outstanding. The variety of menu items is impressive. We love to sit at the chef's table to watch them cook. Love it and we'll be back!

Rhubarb is super expensive for nothing special. I ordered the House Mule as a cocktail and it was outstanding. I would really urge you to just come to sit at the bar here and order drinks instead of food. The food prices are outrageous. My boyfriend ordered the striped bass and it was super small and weird tasting. The cheese board was average. Waste of money. Would only recommend for drinks.

Food was incredibly well-balanced with every flavor discernible. Southern cuisines at its finest! Service was superb: quick, attentive and helpful without over-bearing. Decided to eat here 2 more times during our 4-night stay in Asheville!

Quality of food was very good; just a little too “foodie” for us; not a lot of choices on the menu. Cute restaurant though.

Don't be misled by the view from the sidewalk -- there's plenty of room inside. Tables are close to each other, so it might get a bit noisy at times.

We had heard about Rhubarb & wanted to go for my birthday dinner. The server was great, pleasant & offered suggestions for the meal. We ordered cocktails & when they arrived, my husband had a normal size cocktail & mine was about 1/3 full with a large ice cube in it. When the server asked if we wanted another cocktail, I told her if you give me a full cocktail this time. The 2nd drink was fine, however the Red Snapper small plate was nothing special. No flavor, or should I say tasted very fishy (fresh?). Took it home for the cat. The only thing that saved the meal was the Burrata appetizer. Also, my birthday was not recognized even though I mentioned when making the reservation. There are so many great restaurants in Asheville, save your $$$$ for another one.
