It was Father's Day and my dad was in from GA. We love Rhubarb and wanted him to experience it on his special day. Everything was wonderful as far as being greeted when we arrived and the food. Our server was not super engaging and I kinda felt like she didn't like us and it was a chore for her to have to take care of us. So despite exceptional food (my omelet was over the top perfection!) We decided to eat and run. We forwent another cocktail and past on dessert because we didn't feel encouraged to stay.

Rhubarb is a recommended visit if going to Asheville. The menu is small but fresh. The outside seating is fine, but a bit loud given their location on the square.

We really enjoyed our dinner at rhubarb. The food was delicious and tasted very wholesome! Our server was lovely. The one thing that wasn’t so great was the Rhubarb cake… which is ironic considering the name of the Restuarant. It was dry and a bit tough, flavor was mild.

We requested to be seated inside because there was a person playing a drum right outside the restaurant and it was distracting and we could barely carry on a conversation. But unfortunately, there were no tables inside. Are these people really allowed to plop themselves down right outside a restaurant?

Best meal we had in AVL. The menu is full of unusual and amazingly fresh items, and everything surprised and delighted in the best way. If you want an elevated NC meal, this is your place. Hands down.

Absolutely amazing! Food and service were incredible. Green onion hush puppies were to die for and my steak was cooked perfectly. Local IPA on draft. Couldn’t have asked for a better dinner!

We had a great experience. The food was fantastic! My husband especially loved the rabbit!! The menu was smaller, but the items they had were very well done. We started with the gnocchi and it was fantastic.

My husband especially loved that they had a decent selection from the local breweries.

We had red snapper crudo, lamb ribs, and hush puppies for dinner and the rhubarb cake and a cheese plate for desert and it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Top ten definitely. On top of that, the ambiance was so slick, the staff was super friendly and the location was great for walking around after dinner. Eat here.

We were very underwhelmed by everything. The food was average at best. Tried three appetizers and the lamb ribs were inedible(overcooked with bland sauce) and hush puppies were only okay. The steaks were cooked properly, but accompaniments bad. The fish bland. The pork tenderloin was good, presentation was uninspired. For a farm to table restaurant this was a disappointment. Not everything on drink menu was available.
